Bandai 1/100 MG WD-M01 Turn A Gundam

For the distinctive honour of being its 100th Master Grade release, Bandai has selected the every-bit-as-distinctive Turn A Gundam! Featured in Yoshiyuki Tomino's "Turn A Gundam" series, this "mustachioed" Mobile Suit was designed by Syd Mead (whose work can be seen in such movies as "Aliens," "Blade Runner," and "Tron") in a unique departure from the conventional Gundam designs in the franchise. This fantastically detailed kit is packed with abundant features that showcase the hallmarks of the Master Grade series. Every movement that Turn A Gundam can do in the show can be replicated in this kit, thanks to its flexible joints located throughout the body without any armour pieces getting in the way. As seen in the show, the cockpit can be turned into a Core Fighter, thruster vanes on the back of the legs are movable, hatches located on the back can be opened when executing its "Moonlight Butterfly" attack, and hatches located on the chest can be opened to reveal missiles with multipurpose missile silos--and if you're like me and have been aching to recreate the cow-transporting scene from episode 8, just remove those missile silos, insert the included 1/100-scale cow (molded in white).

Turn A Gundam comes armed with a beam rifle, two beam sabers, a Gundam hammer, and a shield. Both the beam rifle and shield can be mounted on its back. A foil sticker is included along with a sheet of decals for custom markings.

Assembly Guide

Skill Level.2 Basic modeling skills are required. Parental supervision may be required for younger children. These kits are generally suitable for beginner builders. A basic set of modeling tools are required including nippers, hobby knife, sanding sticks/paper, file, and tweezers. No glue is needed for the general assembly. Parts will need to be removed by using a pair of nippers and cutting the part away from the runner. Parts may require clean-up where they were removed from the runner.

Gunpla (plastic model kits) are a snap together assembly and do not need plastic cement to complete. We always recommend having some plastic cement handy as a part of your modeler's tool kit. If you prefer to fix your model in a particular pose then plastic cement will work. Plastic cement is also perfect to use if a joint is loose. Apply plastic cement in a single thin layer and allow it to dry completely before test fitting. Re-apply more cement if necessary.

Gunpla (plastic model kits) are designed to be built and displayed without the need for painting. Kits are molded in different colours replicating the colours of the actual mecha from the Gundam series. A technique called colour separation, where multiple parts of the model are molded in different colours on the same sprue is also used. Gundam kits often include stickers or water-slide decals that can be applied to the model to enhance its appearance. Some Gunpla kits come with pre-painted parts or parts with pre-applied details, such as metallic or translucent finishes.

Many modelers still choose to paint their kits to customize and add further detail. Painting allows for more creativity and personalization, enabling modelers to achieve unique effects, weathering, and colour schemes that may not be available out of the box. However, the kits are designed to be enjoyable and visually appealing even without painting, making them accessible to a wide range of hobbyists.

The Moustache Gundam

Yes this is a Gundam with a moustache, I approve as it gives the suit character.

Now onto the build itself, definitely a unique design, different to other MG's before it.
