WORDS FROM THE MODELER
"Well what can I say, QAN[T] was a little something different in terms of design and kit engineering. I very much enjoyed working on this kit purely of the fact that it’s the main suit in the 00 Awakening of the Trailblazer timeline. With this project, I didn’t have any plans to modify; this was more of an experimental project where I wanted to try mixing custom colours. The Full Saber did catch my eye as I felt that the stock equipment needs a bit more "oomph" to it. So I purchased the GN Sword IV from BTF through ebay; now this is obviously a 3rd party add on but I must say, the mould is very good and it comes coloured so didnt really need painting; but for the purpose of the project, paint was necessary of course.
I always like the suits from 00MSV, they are some of the most unique looking gundams and their equipment was simply amazing. Ebikawa always has the rigidity on his designs which I really like. The way he places his decals differs from Katoki. So with that said, I also purchased a 3rd party decal as a further supplement to the project.
