I never had a chance to collect Gespenst Mk-II when Kotobukiya released back in 2009 even missing out Gesterben (Dengeki Shop Limited). Now I got Gesterben Kwai and sitting in the top shelve for almost two years. Why not take the challenge to refresh my mind since getting stuck and frustrating working on the Gunpla kits without new ideas.
As much I understand when looking at the manual and compared at Dalong.Net, Gesterben Kwai was basically reused mod from the first released Gespenst Mk-II (2009). This means the content inside not only featuring new parts but the old Gespenst parts as well which is the reason why it so expensive. Since this is also my first time building it so there’s need to be careful self procedure in place. The first steps right now are cut, sanding and straight assemble.
The four days progress so far is good except slight errors on the shoulder armor that create for lining. I need to fix by applying putty to the lining but that will be later plan. The completion assembling for all the remaining parts are almost done. The next steps will be adding new option parts details and custom weapons unit from Kotobukiya. There’s need in some modifications after finding out few parts are quite weak. Hopefully nothing breaks during the work because I don’t have any single sources to find replacement parts from Kotobukiya to ship internationally.
