I’m back in the States! This was my first build to make after my return. Fittingly enough, I chose to recreate the scene where Athrun makes his reappearance with the Justice Gundam. Now that I have the trio of new Gundam Seed MG kits, I might consider doing a photo shoot with all three in the future. Kit review and build details following the image gallery. Enjoy!




Kit Review:

  • Great articulation & posability
  • Lots of detailing to panel line
  • Lots of weapon options
  • Included stand can support the weight of the Fantum-00 backpack
  • Great overall look and unique backpack design


  • Fragile J4 leg joint that has also been used in the MG Freedom 2.0 and Providence
  • Guns on the Fantum-00 tend to block head movement or get in the way of posing

Paints used:

  • Tamiya TS 59, pearl light red
  • Tamiya TS 37, Lavender
  • Tamiya TS 34, Camel yellow
  • Tamiya TS 38, gun metal
  • Tamiya TS 42, light gun metal
  • Tamiya TS 82, Rubber black


      1. What kind of equipment do you use for your paint jobs? I’m planning on getting an airbrush and compressor in the future and I was wondering if there are specs I should be looking for.


      2. I actually just use tamiya and mr color spray cans because the apartment that I was living in Shanghai wasn’t big enough. If you’re thinking about picking up an airbrush, I’d do some research on creating a workspace and airbrush/compressor!
