What is the difference between grades in gundam ?
In the world of Gundam model kits, "grade" refers to the level of detail, complexity, and overall quality of the kit. There are several grades available, each catering to different skill levels and preferences: High Grade (HG): These kits are beginner-friendly, featuring simpler designs and fewer parts. They are easy to assemble and typically offer less intricate details compared to higher grades. Real Grade (RG): Real Grade kits offer a balance between complexity and accessibility. They focus on capturing intricate details while maintaining a manageable assembly process, making them suitable for both intermediate and advanced modelers. Master Grade (MG): Master Grade kits are renowned for their exceptional detail and articulation. They provide a higher level of complexity and often include advanced techniques such as inner frames and more parts. These kits are a favorite among experienced modelers. Perfect Grade (PG): Perfect Grade kits are the pinnacle of Gundam modeling. They feature the highest level of detail, realism, and complexity. With numerous parts and intricate mechanisms, they are designed for expert modelers seeking a challenging and rewarding build. Each grade caters to different skill levels and preferences, allowing Gundam enthusiasts to choose the level of challenge and realism that suits them best.
