BANDAI MG Nu Gundam ver.ka Build #1 Temporary assembly / painting preparation


Hello, I’m the caretaker.
This time, I’m going to make a temporary assembly of ν Gundam. I’ve heard rumors that it’s a fairly complex kit.


The hand is called Emotion Manipulator SP, and if you separate it from the runner, the palm will be completed and your fingers will bend. Bandai is amazing!

A display is also included. I want to paint a little.


Since this kit has a large number of parts, there are quite a few runners and it is difficult to find the parts. Recently, the kit puts the necessary runners on a partial basis, but since this kit does not have it, I investigated it in advance and summarized it.

Upper body

First is the assembly of the upper body.

First is the chest.
Runners required for chest assembly A1, B1, C1, D1, E, G, J, K, R, PC,

Runners required for head assembly A1, B1, C1, E, G, J, R, PC,

Runners required for arm assembly A1, A2, B1, B2, E, F, G, I, J, K, PC, MP, PC, MP,

Upper body assembly Runners required for assembly B1, B2, D1, D2, I, K,

The upper body is ready. It was difficult because there were many parts, but it was pretty cool.

Lower body

First from the legs
Runners required for leg assembly A1, A2, B1, B2, D1, D2, F, I, J, K, L, PC, L, PC,

Runners required for waist assembly B1, C1, D1, G, J, K, PC,

The lower half of the body was assembled, and it was quite difficult like the upper half of the body.
Lower body assembly Runners required for assembly B1, B2, I, K,


Runners required for backpack assembly B1, B2, E, F, G, J, K,


Weapons such as funnels and shields have fewer parts, so it will be easier to find parts.
Runners E, H, required for beam rifle assembly
Runners required for assembling the New Hyper Bazooka A1, C1, E, H,
Runners required for shield assembly C, E, J, H,
Runner H required for beam saber assembly,
Runners required for fin funnel assembly B1, B2, F, I, K,


It took about 5 days for the temporary assembly slowly. I had a hard time gate processing with a considerable number of parts.
When it’s finished, it’s quite big and it’s powerful when you attach a funnel.

The funnel can be attached to both by replacing the parts of the backpack. You may want to find a cool way to put it on.

Detail up

LED unit

It seems that an LED unit will be inserted to make the head shine, so I will use the one I bought before.

Plastic board

I used HG Detail Punch to improve the detail a little.


Practice streaks that are not very good. I am challenging with a streak carving guide.

Painting plan

This time, I’m going to do a gradation painting with a feeling close to the standard color. The point is whether the dark blue around the chest can be painted well. Darker colors increase the difficulty of gradation painting, so you may need to pay attention to the color selection and painting method.

The temporary assembly of Nu Gundam took a long time. It took about 5 days to work. There were many parts and it was quite difficult to process the gate. There are many weapon-related accessories, and you can feel a sense of accomplishment just by completing a temporary assembly.

That’s all for this time.
Next, I would like to start painting weapons.
Thank you for watching until the end.
