the literal perfect entry to Master Grade

This is a simple, uncomplicated kit that will ease you into the process and intricacies of the Master Grade as a whole. The only part that even approaches being complex is the admittedly annoying tightening of the screws that hold the shoulders together, which can be agonising depending on the tolerances of your particular kit, and once that's done it's smooth sailing until you finish - and then it's a clean, perfect representation of the Ground Type. Even 23 years on from its release, this kit shines brighter than some modern offerings by putting clean, uncomplicated engineering and substance over flash and style. Maybe it's not as articulated as a modern MG. Maybe it's a bit lower on parts count and lacks an inner frame. But there's something that will always bring me back to this one, something that none of the modern kits have really shown me - pure, unadulterated charm.

Good MG for beginners

Upon opening the box, I was treated to the standard build with some screws to tighten the arms. The older plastic makes it a bit rough to clean up nub marks, but it is possible. When the build is finished, you are treated to the average articulation in the legs and arms with no real movement in the head or waist. However, with time the joints will come really loose. One thing I will warn buyers is the lack of pegs in the hands. It really makes it hard for the Gundam to hold the weapons. The stickers are high quality and are surprisingly readable along with the dry transfer decals which are tricky but attainable to put on. The kit does come with extra parts for even higher levels of customization. All good things, and a solid second or third MG

Older MG

There isn't much of an inner-frame, nor surface details. The arms use screws in the elbows to stiffen up the elbow joint. Overall the kit does show it's age, but that doesn't make it a bad kit. In fact most of the older grades are rather enjoyable to build, including this RX 79 G. It's simplicity though, lends itself to be highly customizable without having to cover up existing surface details.
