This kit is another in the Gundam 30th Anniversary Sky Project line offered by ANA to passengers during 2010/2011. It consists of a 1/200 Boeing 777-300 and a 1/200 RX-78-2.

The RX-78-2 is similar in construction to the early First Grade kits but with a lot more detail. It is a snap fit but comes in all white and needs to be painted. Colour charts are given for the ANA scheme as well as the normal anime scheme. There are quite a number of water slide decals for the ANA scheme and it also has a stand as well as a beam rifle & bazooka if you want to model the anime version.

Here comes the unusual part. As I was reading the instructions for the Boeing 777 I thought that they looked like Hasegawa instructions even though Bandai's name appeared on the first page  and sure enough the Boeing part of the kit as well as all the decals are made by Hasegawa. The 777 is just the normal Hasegawa kit with the addition of the special Gundam head & side profile drawings to the decal sheet. It is a normal glue & paint kit, no snapper here. It comes with the usual options of wheels up or down and also has a stand.

For whatever reason this kit is not very common compared to the other ANA Sky Project kits so best of luck finding one at a decent price.
