This model kit allows you to build the RX-78-2 Gundam, one of the most representative robots of japanese animation, the main "character" of the original Mobile Suit Gundam TV series. This is its biggest incarnation as a gunpla currently available: 1/48 scale! Once assembled, it is 37.50 cm tall (there are versions of even greater dimensions, but they're generally used for exhibition purposes and not commercially sold). Despite its size, it's an extremely easy to assemble gunpla, suitable for everyone: it consists of 220 pieces of medium to large dimensions. Inside the package, in addition to the instruction manual, there are a tips booklet by Hobby Japan and two special tools to separate the components from the runners. Cutters are not required (although a good pair of nippers can help you get a more finished result). Amuro Ray's "White Mobile Suit" comes with a shield, a Beam Rifle and a couple of Beam Sabers.
