Today we have an out of the box build review of MG 1/100 Rick Dias Quattro Vageena Custom. This is the first unit of Char Aznable in the Gundam Zeta series while disguised as Quattro. It is colored RED which is typical of Char’s mobile suit. Overall we are satisfied with the kit. Though I have to say that being part of the first series of MG kits, this Rick Dias has room for improvements like on the plastic quality, color of plastic and inner frame detail. Also there were some pieces that keep on falling which disappointed me a bit but not enough to give it a bad rating. I give it a rating of 8/10.
An insert! hehe its nice how old MG kits have this while sad that new MG releases does not have one.
