Gunpla enthusiasts tend to suggest that beginners start out with High Grade kits, rather than the Real Grade line (which this kit falls under), but this was only my second model ever, and I can say with confidence that I had no trouble building it. While there are quite a few pieces, the instructions are easy to follow, even if you don't understand Japanese. Furthermore, the pieces all snap together, so there is no need for glue (or paint for that matter - the pieces are all colored appropriately).

And how about the finished product? If you read up on the Real Grade line, you will learn that it is meant to be something of a hybrid of Bandai's other model kit grades. It has the small size and (relative) cheap price of the High Grade, a high piece count (inspired by the Perfect Grade), and a flexible joint system (taken from the Master Grade). In practice, the Real Grade kits wind up being incredibly detailed and highly poseable. The Gundam in particular comes with quite a few bells and whistles. It has all of its key weapons (beam rifle, bazooka, shield and beam sabers), as well as a separate Core Fighter model which can be used to assemble the Gundam's torso (just like in the original TV show). This level detail was unexpected, but wholly welcome, in such a well priced kit.

All in all, I think that anyone new to this hobby would do fine with a Real Grade kit such as this one, and due to the extra level of detail, I'd probably recommend them over a High Grade kit. The bit of extra effort is worth it when you see the finished product.

The Real Grade series is certainly interesting. I picked this kit up as a hobbyist who has put together about 10 or so high grade kits before this.

Real Grade is supposed to be Master Grade detail in the size of a High Grade (1/144 scale). The kit is certainly incredibly detailed, and comes with various decals/stickers that actually make the model look good, unlike stickers in most High Grade kits. You will find yourself working for quite awhile just to put a leg or an arm together, which is a refreshing pleasure to a Gundam modelist; especially someone who is used to High Grade kits. When completed the kit is certainly beautiful, even without paint. It can be posed in a surprising variety of ways with tiny complexities in how each joint works (I noticed one when working on the knees)

Now, after all this, there is a bit of a problem with some of the real grade kits. They are composed of alot of parts which on it's own isn't a problem, but because of their small size each part interconnects in a large variety of ways. Because of this, its easy for parts to just fall off after the kit is completed. I haven't had any break, but the feet in particular will come apart if I try to pose it and I have to keep sticking the armor pads back on, then an entirely different part will fall off. A tiny bit of plastic-safe glue should fix this, but it is something I noticed.

Regardless, given the price range of the real grade kits they are certainly worth picking up if you're into Gundam Modeling, or even if you want to get started. I like this kit in particular because it is the original RX-78, and kind of pays tribute to the history of gundam as a whole.

Enjoy!

This is a really cool model and given that it is 1/144 scale, it is incredibly intricate. I think the biggest problem with this kit is that when trying to articulate/pose it, there are some problems with the skirt armor and arms staying attached. Also, some of the later Real Grade models seem to have more robust inner frames. Still, this was my first (and is the first) Real Grade model and I am still satisfied with it, even after 5 more Real Grade models.

First Real Grade I have built. Wasn't really sure what I was getting into, but it was a fun experience. Most of the kit was put together with ease. The only problems I encountered were with the arms and shoulders. This was mainly due to the arms being barley attached to the torso due to the shoulders taking up some space. Had to be careful with moving his arms up and down or the arm would pop off along with some of the shoulder pieces. Also another gripe I have is with the hands. It is sometime infuriating trying to equip the gun. Getting his finger on the trigger with his thumb around it requires some time. Since if you try to force it his fingers can pop off.

This was the first model in the Real Grade line, which means a couple of things. On the positive side, Bandai's designers clearly wanted to make an impression and distinguish the Real Grade from the existing High Grade line. So everything is super complex and you can tell a lot of engineering went into starting the Real Grades with a bang. You get a nice complement of weapons, and the inner frame and moving armor panels make this model very satisfying to pose. It'll hold a pose pretty well without too much falling off in the process.

The flip side of being first in the RG line is that the designers didn't have the benefit of learning from previous models. Some parts are a little too tiny for their own good and will break easily if you're not careful. The inner frame is already articulated fresh from the runner, which is awesome, but I managed to break the hip section while trying to get the joints to move. (Thankfully a glob of superglue put everything back together). The other thing that disappointed me is that it only comes with two sets of hands - closed fist, and the fiddly articulated hands. There's no dedicated trigger fingers or open hands like in later RG models. The action base mount also leaves something to be desired: it fits too loosely into the model for comfort, and only fits the square tab of an actual Action Base - no peg-hole for cheaper stands.
