RG 1/144 Gundam RX-78-2 New Images EDITED

EDITED: Added new images of the runners.

New images of RG 1/144 Gundam RX-78-2 spotted on Katsumi Kawaguchi-sensei's blog after the last one last Wednesday.

It's panel-lining and applying decals this time. Looks like he's about to complete this model ^^

Magnifier is used to help in applying the decals. ^^

July 24th release, 2,625 Yen (inclusive of tax).

Images are from Katsumi Kawaguchi-sensei's blog: Link 1, Link 2, Link 3.

A look at the runners and inner frame:

Details of the chest vents.

Runner featuring the pre-assembled components.

Grayish white parts, with some indication on the runner's design for some future "expansion"? ^^

More display of Bandai's awesome technology in the design of the pre-assembled components there - one little part for maintaining separated section of a single component of the runner.

Super thin joint!

The frame is very well balanced - Image shows the frame standing on a surface with a 30-degree slope according to the source.

Images are from Nintendo World BBS.
