RC 1/100 Nightingale Potential Flaws, Defect and Problems **updated**

Posted below are pictures from another source stating the possible problems that we might encounter once we buy the Regulation Center (RC) 1/100 Nightingale kit. It turns out that my fears are indeed correct. It seems that RC quality is similar to GHD kit quality (GHD is a KO gundam kit brand). Oh well, it seems that I will wait and see those who already pre-ordered the kit to see what will their reactions be. There was no mention by the way about the metal thrusters, but pictures from samueldecal tells that they were nicely done.

 

(pictures have Chinese explanation… I hope someone could translate for us…)

I am one of those people in the Philippines eagerly awaiting for the arrival of the Regulation Center (RC) 1/100 Nightingale kit since this is the first RC kit that will ever be released and the cheapest 1/100 Nightingale so far since it is mass produced (read more about the 1/100 Nightingale Super-G resin kit here) . I was willing to take the risk even though I know that there might be a possibility that this is not made of good quality materials. I really wanted to buy it but the 4000 pesos rumored price is holding me back.  Now seeing these pictures held me back further…

 

 

there seems to be parts that does not fit perfectly

flashes and uneven sides….

Now I am beginning to think that maybe they contracted GHD to make the kits… hahah! just an assumption though

definitely needs patience and effort I suppose….

    1. FYI… there is NO official Bandai release for the 1/100 Nightingale. 

      Bandai released a “resin” version of this in 1/144 scale only under the B-Club franchise….

  1. just completed mine last week, lots of fitting issues but easily remedied. i used up 10grams of superglue for the corrections, nonetheless its an awesome kit when completed properly, not for beginners though
