HG 1/144 WIP- ZGMF-X56S Impulse Gundam

I figured I'd try a different review than I normally do by comparing runners from the three Impulse variants side by side. 

Left to Right: Sword, Force, Blast

 Unlike most kits that repurpose runners, you're not really gonna be left with much of anything after the build.

Here's where misfortune strikes. The first time I've broken a v-fin. Not even while sharpening, I broke it while cutting the part off the runner.

After crying for a couple of seconds, I stuck on a length of runner, then resumed crying while waiting for the cement to cure. After filing down to shape, it's almost good as new.

An utter failure eyeballing the right paint mixture for the swords' color, but I think this is actually closer to how it looked in the anime.

One thing I found odd was holes on the underside of the Blast Silhouette's missile launcher parts.
There could be all sorts of reasons as to why those holes are there, but it certainly makes painting much easier. Whip up a black wash and the paint will flow right where you need it when you dab the tip of the brush through the holes.
