MSN-00100 Hyaku-Shiki

Completed 2001

The Hyaku Shiki (or 100-Shiki) has been one of my favorite designs ever since I got into Gundam models, back when Zeta Gundam was new. Such a sleek and shiny golden idol! I built this same kit years ago, and never could figure out a way to get the gold finish I wanted. This is the first MS I built after a 12 year break from Gundam, and I promised myself I'd have a proper gold Shiki this time! After a lot of fiddling with different materials, I decided to go with metal foil, a time consuming but very satisfying task.
 
The kit itself is quite good, one of the better models from those days. I was mad when Bandai announced the release of the (already gold) master grade kit after I finished this, but felt better when I saw the new kit. I think the proportions, particularly the head, are much better on the original model.
