Okay, so this is just the SD version..but still awesome.
First, let me just state for the record, Gundam X has a pretty special place in my heart. 0083 was the first actual anime of Gundam I watched, but I had the English Dubbed (Bleh) VHS tapes. Meh. Gundam X was the first complete DVD set, In Japanese that I ever owned, and to date I’ve watched it through probably 10 times. Sure the story gets a little cloudy during the second half, but I still love the series and I feel it gets a bum rap just because it was aired at 6am in Japan when it was released.
More importantly, my very first Gunpla kit ever built was the 1/144 scale Gundam Leopard (followed, the very next day, after a lot of begging to my parents, by the 1/144 scale Leopard Destroy). So again, Gundam X has, as I said, a very special place in my heart.
That being said, I can still remember the first time I saw the Double X in the show. After a few episodes of anticipation as to why Garrod and Tifa spotted the satellite laser appear across the ocean, the Double X is exposed and I remember my jaw dropped. It was, as my buddy Chris gives me so much crap for saying, A Magnificent Machine. I couldn’t see enough of it in action. The Black and white color scheme, the double satellite cannons, I was hooked. And to this day, the Double X ranks in my top three favorite Gundams.
So, I’m going to focus all my efforts and skill on my 1/100 scale HG Gundam Double X kit. I have the decals from Samuel Decal – which will add just that much more greatness to the mobile suit, and I’m going to incorporate every skill in Gunpla Modeling I know for this one. I’ll keep you posted –
