|Comments||The Gundam MkII has many types of renovations. The model has presetted led lights so you do not have to cut the wires like the first 6 perfect grades. The stickers are glossy, although this can be helped by spray painting a coat of clear paint, as this will help match the texture with the stickers. The model does need a few areas to paint. Most likly you will need to paint the circular area on the vulcan pod system red. Also you do need to paint the clear parts with clear green or light neon green. If you are the lucky ones with the Gundam Marker sets this should be no problem. The skeleton is well sturdy unlike the Wing Zero Perfect Grade. Also the plastic mold is nicly done. The cockpit and the head lights up in green with the switch is on. The neat thing about the switch is that it is concealed unlike the original perfect grades. This model does not have any wires connecting from the backpack to the core. The backpack holds the L344 batteries. The Backpack has two prongs or connecters enabling the need of attaching wires to the batery pack. This new model seems to be made for starters. As for me I have all 6 perfectgrades. But the MKII is my favorite for its easy but complicated construction. Also the DVD A.E.U.G simulation gundam movie is also a great combo. The Dvd features a tactical computerized simulation of the MK2 gundam as well as gundam commercials and documentries. This kit can be completed within a week with finishing touches. I prefer this model for first time perfect grade builders. Oh yes, Bandai has just released their 7th perfect grade gundam...it is called the Gundam MKII TITANS version. This model is the same gundam as MKII although the colors are purple, black and, grey|
