My thoughts on this kit....

Positives:
- The SD wing zero is hilariously proportioned even for a SD his head his easily twice the size of a regular SD
- The Mini Mini version of the Zero and Death Scythe are just plain kool and due to the multicolored runner they are actually quite good representations of there larger versions

Negatives:
- This kit is from 1995 and it does show, some pieces are a little off and seam lines are everywhere etc but as long as you don't expect modern HG+ quality here you wont be disappointed, it isn't that bad
- The colors whilst varied (the death scythe blue is different to the zero) will require painting to match the proper scheme shown on the box art for example the death scythe weapons are completely molded in yellow which is obviously wrong

Overall
- I haven't finished this kit yet but ive had alot of fun building it and the 3 mini gundam together look hilarious but awesome, i will update this when ive finished the ship portion and had it all together, this is a must for SD/BB fans and Gundam Wing fans alike if only for the mini deathscythe :)

I didnt even know this one existed i got the BB #148 Wing very similar setup but you get heavy arms instead of deathscythe this kit is now a must for me if only for the lil D/S for the other side of my monitor.
This is my attempt at painting one of those little guys, good practice. (not sure if i should put a pic here delete if need be)
