    Hi. I’m new to Gunnpla modelling and I wanted to start with a model of Unicorn Gundam. Is it advisable for a beginner to start with the Master Grade model (which is what I really want)? Or should I just go with High Grade? Anyway, thank you for reading this and I hope you could help me in on this one. I’m looking forward to read your tips and advice. =)

  4. hmm, it is hard to define. Let me put it this way:
    MG has a lot of parts and runners. Therefore it take more time and patient to handle. But it doesn’t mean that it is harder to build.
    HG kit is a lot more straight forward. But of course their look and articulation can never beat the MG. Many parts are come with plastic which is in different color, which may not be something you wanted.
    Since you are new, I assume you will go for scratch build only without painting. Am I right? It is ok to start with MG, but if you are afraid of messing up your first MG, you can simply get a HG kit and try out some of the steps in the tutorial in minimizing the numb marks. If you are confident enough, go on and have fun with your MG Unicorn ^^

      Hi again. I’ve seen the tutorials and will definitely follow them. I’ve decided to go with the MG kit since that’s what I really wanted and yes, you are right that I won’t be painting my first model so that I would not really mess it up when things go wrong. Now I wanted to say thank you for helping me decide which Unicorn model to pick and for the tips. Really appreciated. And I’m sure you can be of help to other Gunpla modelers out there. Good job on this site and I wish you luck to your future Gunpla endeavors. Thanks again. ^^
