As you can see above the HGUC Schuzrum Galluss is nearly complete with some minor painting touch ups and additional decals the only steps left until completion and the full review. I did some top coating using model masters clear coat and dullcote, and after a day constructed the kit. By far this is the most agile High Grade Gundam mobile suit I’ve ever put together, and it doesn’t hurt it looks terrific.

The arms and legs are very poseable thanks in part to some construction techniques that I’ve never come across before, specifically a piece underneath the skirt armor to which the legs connect.

The piece basically allows more room for the legs to swivel at a more exaggerated stance; a picture to the left from the kit’s manual demonstrates how the piece works and allows more movement.

Usually, it’s the arms of an HGUC that has more poseability than the legs, but both the arms and legs have a great range which allows some dynamic poses.

The Schuzrum Galluss, judging by its main weapons and appearance on the Gundam Unicorn anime series, is a close combat mobile suit that showed off some close quarter combat skills in the anime series, like a one legged kick which I’m happy to say is attainable thanks in part to how the kit was designed with the aforementioned legs connector piece and how well the kit is balanced; it’s not a heavy kit.

HGUC Schuzrum Galluss is capable of kicking similar to what it did on the Gundam Unicorn anime series.

I’ll go into full detail with the kit when I get to a full review which should be coming up sometime next week, but I’m loving the look of the kit and how agile it is.
