MG Crossbone Gundam X-1

crossbone-1

And the struggle to reduce my Gunpla backlog continues! I’ve just finished assembling the MG Crossbone Gundam X-1. It’s the pirate Gundam and it’s very cool.

Things to consider with this model:

  1. No poly caps! Cool since models are meant to be posed and not played with. The F91 is the same way.
  2. It’s very difficult to pose holding it’s weapons.
  3. It needs a stand.
  4. It cries out to be painted and touched up.

The stand I can buy and Stefan has a trick for holding the weapons. I don’t know when I can paint it, if ever.  Like most of the current MG and HG models the seam lines are in good locations and the assembly was not difficult.
