koto's kits and figs are pretty high quality in general. early FAGs had some issues but those were resolved with rereleases and in future kits. this kit is also really nice. I only bought because its sugumi but after this I'll probably get sitara too if I run into her. This is probably the first MD I've built iirc.
I wish I would've known about the rerun for this kit because I got scalped for this on amazon. I probably would've missed the preorder window again though.
I wasn't really sure about the color scheme but it's really grown on me. I prefer this type of design where the parts aren't stacked or modular and are more specific as to what they do. The floaty bits are on blue transparent plastic, and I don't know how to feel about that. the included flame parts are also really neat.
the shield is really cool, probably more useful as a stabber than for shielding
the kit has a lot of panel lining opportunities, being well contrasted against the white and yellow.
realize that most of a mecha musume model kit is the mecha, so if you're not in it for mecha you're kinda wasting it but its worth trying at least, even if you aren't going to paint or detail it.
I think there was a fag/md general but I don't know where it went.
I really want sugumi bikini as a kit or fig...
