GAT-X102 Duel by xxLelouchxx67 GAT-X102 Duel by xxLelouchxx67
MG 1/100 Duel Gundam that I picked up shortly after its release. Unfortunately, didn't get around to working on it until almost a month later, leaving it sitting in my closet for a while before I finally got some free time to crack open the box and start on this sucker.

All told, Bandai really did this suit justice with a MG treatment; I have no idea why they've decided to go back and make MG's of the old SEED mobile suits (wait...isn't it Gundam Seed's 10th anniversary this year?) but I'm extremely happy about it; planning to pick up all the GAT machines as they're released. I've always been fond of the Duel (unlike many others who dislikied SEED altogether) and felt that it, like it's brother units the Buster, Aegis, and Blitz, were horribly underappreciated.

Bandai went all out with this kit and gave it an entire rehaul, adding a massive load of detail to the armor ('specially the Assault Shroud) and gave it more badass looking proportions.

Really giddy about the opening cockpit feature on this MG; if only for the fact that the Duel has a rather...interesting abdominal area, making designing an opening cockpit for the section a bit tricky, but Bandai once again came through and pulled it off flawlessly. :)

Ever since Bandai announced this baby I've wanted it but I haven't had the budget to get one yet. I'm curious on how it went together, any problems? I loved SEED's mecha designs and the GAT line was one of my favorites.

It's actually engineered really well; simple build and very vertisile frame. Plastic is as you would expect of Bandai; didn't have any trouble breaking or snapping anything. Overall it was just a really great build with lots of innovative gimmicks build into the suit. :)

Is this the same as the assault shroud just minus armor? Please forgive my noobness! :)

Yup, this is the Duel in it's basic production form. The Assault Shroud was an add-on from later in the war. (if you watched the series.) :)
