GAT-X102 Duel Assault Shroud by xxLelouchxx67 GAT-X102 Duel Assault Shroud by xxLelouchxx67
Assault Shroud armor ON.

While the Assault Shroud adds some bulk and more armament to the Duel, I think I still prefer it "nude" and plain without the armor. It looks cool and all, but with all that stuff added on it kinda limits mobility and you feel like stuff falls off a lot. The normal Duel's flexible and very stable.

Didn't really bother painting in the little bit of green for the missile bay on the left shoulder; seemed kinda pointless so I just panel-lined it black. I went ahead and painted all the clear pieces (head sensors, weapon scopes) clear green though. While not as radiant as metallic green (which I used for the eyes) it looks more realistic. Plus the head has light-piping, which is always cool, but you usually can't see it unless it hits it at just the right angle...

If I wanted to google this model kit, what would I type in? I do other modeling and did snap together Gundams when I was a kid. Whenever i do searches for model kits that are at a more adult skill level I never find anything as cool as this.

Ah, Bandai's model kits are HUGE. If you want to look up this particular model I'd suggest "MG 1/100 Duel Gundam Assault Shroud"

If you're interested in looking into getting some here are some links to the bigger Gunpla stores online, where you can find kits like this and the ones in my gallery. ;)

Thanks for the info, I've been to some of these sites before. But, there are just SO MANY Gundams out there, I have no idea where to even begin. The stuff I did when I was a kid was all snap together colored plastic kits. I assume these ones are not painted and require glue? I do a lot of Warhammer 40k stuff so I know how to do it, just want to know what I'm getting myself into.

I'd personally recommend starting with a 1/144 scale High Grade (HG) as there is a lot more variety available, they are easy to build and they're cheap so you don't have to blow your wallet. The High Grade Universal Century (HGUC), Gundam 00 and AGE lines are all good ones to start with. The SEED line can be work intensive on some but most are good as well. The 1/100 Master Grade line (Like the Duel here) is a great line to dive into once you've done a couple others and gotten a handle on Gunpla, not necessarily because they're harder but they have more parts and cost more. Screwing up a $50-$200 MG is a lot more painful than screwing up a $5-$20 high grade.

Another great source for looking at model kits is Dalong [link] the guy's got just about every kit and documents them well so you can get an idea of what they will be like. While his reviews are in Korean he tries to show things rather than say them.

I appreciate the info thank you! But, are the directions all in Korean? Does that even matter? lol
