The Duel Gundam is the earliest unit to be developed in the Earth Alliance's G Project series of prototype MS. It is designed to be a general-purpose machine that has well-balanced performance, and also serves as a development base for the other MS in the project.
The Duel's armament consists of two head-mounted "Igelstellung" 75mm multi-barrel CIWS guns, which later become standard weaponry on most Earth Alliance's suits to intercept incoming missiles and close in enemy units, two beam sabers stored on the backpack and hand-carried for use in close combat, a 57mm high-energy beam rifle with an attached 175mm grenade launcher for ranged combat, and an anti-beam coated shield for defense. Duel also has a rail bazooka as an optional weapon, but it was taken and used by MBF-P01 Gundam Astray Gold Frame to escape from Heliopolis. As with the other suits developed under the G Project, the Duel was equipped with the new Phase Shift armor, making it nearly impervious to shell-firing weapons.
After being stolen by ZAFT and damaged in battle with the GAT-X105+AQM/E-X01 Aile Strike Gundam, the suit is upgraded with the Assault Shroud. The Assault Shroud is a set of ejectable armor mounted on the Duel’s body to enhance overall combat performance. It adds a "Shiva" 115mm railgun to the right shoulder and a 220mm 5-barrel missile pod to the left shoulder for additional firepower, as well as various leg and backpack-mounted thrusters for better mobility. Although the equipment worked well in space, it performs poorly under gravity due to its bulk.

Amazing Build

This is the first kit in a long time where I just sat there and kept cutting and attaching pieces, without getting bored. Everything about this suit is bada$s. The color scheme, the weapons, the sculpt- ALL amazing. I keep just sitting there staring at it, and fidgeting with it, and it gives me that nostalgic feeling when you're a kid and you get a new toy. I just bought the MG Buster, which I hope has the same effect on me. Stellar kit all around. I admit I been sleeping on these seed kits. If they are all of this quality, I'll take your entire stock.

The Seed Version of the NT-1 Alex

This kit is awesome. It the seed edition of the NT-1 Alex because of all the armor it comes with. My one caution to you is to be careful when building the cockpit hatch as it is very easy to break something during those parts. Other than that, I would highly recommend this kit.

The Assault Shroud is the key

This kit when I built it some years ago wasn’t my favorite but building it again and really appreciating it makes it a great addition to my beginning collection. The kit overall is really poseable which sadly goes away with the assault shroud but fear not, the assault shroud makes this kit shine. If you’re willing to give up poseability you’ll find an amazingly eye catching kit that with the help of an action base can achieve the cool pose on the box art.
