I’m currently in the middle of watching Zeta Gundam after I stopped watching it several years ago. About a week ago I watched the first appearance of Paptimus Scirocco on the show as he showed up in the PMX-000 Messala and knew I had to get my hands on the recently released High Grade model of the mobile suit.
The first thing I noticed when I opened the model box was how big the armor plating was which should come to no surprise to anyone who’s watched Zeta Gundam. The Messala is clearly larger than the standard Mobile Suit.
I’ll be priming the parts and hopefully will have all the parts painted by Sunday and will also be working on the long-delayed photo shoot of the HGUC Zee Zulu with customized weapons.
As I’m watching Zeta Gundam I’m digging the unusual, but cool designs of the mobile suits, especially the Titans mobile suits. I’ve already spotted my next HGUC purchase from the show.
I cannot wait to put the Messala together! The design looks very sleek and bad ass. Some initial concerns I had as I was unboxing the kit, was how sturdy the model would be given the fact that it also transforms. We’ll see when I get to that point.
