Real Grade Sazabi. Just painted the small details, and everything else is the kit's actual color. Sealed with flat top coat. Made lots of mistakes with stickers and varnish being too thick.

I told myself to get this if somehow Bandai ever got to release a Real Grade Nu Gundam. Not only they did that, these two kits (RG Sazabi & Nu Gundam) are widely regarded as the best gunpla kits ever released.

The white details look great.

I might have to pick up that Sazabi. That is a sweet looking kit. My favorite RG build has been the Sinanju because of the cool gloss look and lots of features, but this one looks like it might be an improvement over that.

Those are the real grade stickers. Really good stuff. Very thin.

Well, the Sinanju is regarded as one of the worst RG kits because it's so fragile. That's what you get when slapping a huge armor on a Gundam-sized frame. But this one comes with full, dedicated inner frame. I believe this one is a little less glossy than Sinanju.

Interesting. I do not really follow any of the online information and just grab what looks cool. I did not think the Sinanju was any more fragile than the other RGs I have assembled. It was certainly not as fragile as the MG Victory II Ver.Ka kit, which was my personal least favorite.
