Yes, the Real Grade Complete Project is still ongoing. It seems all the progress I made up since the last update has been somewhat undone by the release of new kits since then. Isn’t that always the way?

I think I have a pretty decent excuse for falling a little behind this time. When I was packing up everything in my apartment for the voyage across the ocean I had to let a lot of kits go but the ones I made sure to take with me were the Real Grades, both built and unbuilt, along with PG Unicorns and some MG kits I really want to work on. Oh, and all those Star Wars kits I haven’t built yet.

For the Real Grade Complete Project, in order to make sure I am still on track, I am going to update my update so that all information is current and I can evaluate how I’m going to proceed. Ha, it’s going to be the Unicorn.

Remember, to me a kit is complete when I know I’ve not any more work I feel needs to be done on it. For some kits that means panel lines and stickers are enough. For others, paint and touchup or even some modifications of some kind may be in order.

So where am I?

RG Lineup
#1: RG RX-78-2 Gundam– Original kit and most variations already completed. Still have a G3 version to build.

#2: RG MS-06S Zaku II Char Aznable Custom Model – Completed

#3: RG GAT-X105 Aile Strike Gundam – Completed

#4: RG MS-06F Zaku II – Incomplete – Really want to start on it now that the rumour is the next RG is the Johnny Ridden.

#5: RG ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam – Completed

#6: RG FX-550 Skygrasper Launcher/Sword Pack – Completed since last update.

#7: RG RX-178 Gundam Mk-II Titans – Completed

#8: RG Gundam Mk-II AEUG Version Prototype RX-178 – Completed

#9: RG ZGMF-X09A Justice Gundam – Completed

#10: RG Zeta Gundam – Completed

#11: RG ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam – Completed

#12: RG RX-78GP01 Gundam GP01 Zephyranthes – Completed

#13: 1/144 RG RX-78GP01Fb Gundam GP01 Full-Burnern – Still Incomplete – This is one of the kits I really wanted to paint so it could be sitting incomplete for some time.

#14: RG ZGMF-X20A Strike Freedom Gundam – Completed

#15: RG GN-001 Gundam Exia – Completed

#16: RG MSM-07S Char’s Z’Gok – Completed

#17: RG Wing Gundam Zero EW – Completed

#18: RG GN-0000+GNR-010 OO Raiser – Incomplete – Another kit I had a specific plan for that requires time and space (and now some supplies).

#19: RG Gundam Astray Red Frame – The last update lists this one as incomplete but I’ll have to confirm that. Still need to build the Gold one to go with the Blue one.

#20: RG Wing Gundam EW – Completed

#21: RG GNT-0000 00 QAN[T] – Completed – But I have a Full Saber now…

#22: RG MSN-06S Sinanju – Incomplete – I have one fully completed kit and another that I had done some work on. That plan involved waterslides but I may have a change of mind now that even water-slide work is something I don’t have a lot of time for. No need to rush to a decision, though.

Now for the Real Grade kits that have released since the update last year.

#23: RG GAT-X105B / FP Build Strike Gundam Full Package – Incomplete –
Given how little I care for this Mobile Suit this may be the last kit I finish for the project.

#24: RG Gundam Astray Gold Frame Amatsu Mina – Incomplete – This kit released weeks before I was heading out of the country so it’s understandable I haven’t finished it yet. I really want to see what it looks like stickered up so I may get on it soon. After the Unicorn, anyway.

#25: RG RX-0 Unicorn Gundam – Incomplete – But at least one of the two I got just last week will be done soon. The other? I’m not sure yet what I want to do with it but I definitely want another crack at this awesome kit.

Running Tally: 25 releases (not counting Limited editions/exclusives) – 17 Complete – 8 Incomplete

    Wow! I’ve only built two real grades so far… so far behind. There are also pictures of a real grade GM Sniper Custom (from 08th MS)

      Mistake. It’s just a new colour scheme of the GM sniper we know from 0080 (or 0083). There will also be some new origin zaku HG kits. I’m kinda disappointed Bandai will re-use old molds instead of releasing brand new kits. I want a S gundam 2.0!

      BTW, sad the hidden gunpla at Gundam Base ended up being the Psycho GM, and not the Baund Doc seen in the trailer.
