I recently hinted at my desire to build the Master Grade Gundam F91.
As I said then, I don’t really think the F91 works at the 1/144th scale. I, mean, technically it does work - it has all its weapons, gimmicks, etc. The problem is that at that size, it is much too fragile, and certain details are almost impossible to paint.
Also, I’m 99% sure the designers had to screw with the shape of the body to get some of the gimmicks to work, so it also doesn’t quite look right.
But what about a Master Grade version? My hunch is at that size, and with that level of detail, Bandai should have no trouble capturing the F91 in all its glory. Granted, it’s still not going to be huge, being a miniature mobile suit and all, but it should be big enough to get the job done.
As luck would have it, the 2.0 Master Grade kit was recently in stock online. And for reasons I won’t go into, I was told to buy myself my own Father’s Day gift.
Happy Father’s Day to me 😁:
