Yes, the box says "ahgama", but that was before the officialators translatials made it Argama transficially.

Crossing my fingers, as I've made an order at HobbySearch for this kit (my first ever HS purchase, and my first Gundam ship purchase). Planning to actually mod this into maybe the Pegasus III from gundma Sentinel or else some other monstrosity thereof. This is an older kit, more in scale with the older Gundam ship kits I think---have yet to chat with my friend (whoa's a Yamato nut) as to whether this is in scale with kits from that series.

Like the later EX model kit,t his is molded in one color, pale white. Much smaller than the EX model, and being an older kit won't have as much detail...but for AU$2.70, why complain? It comes with a small stand and a fixed-pose figure of Bright Noa (nonscale). Will let you know more once I actually have it in hand and built.

Also, does anybody have notes or info as to how many MS the Argama can carry in total? I'm trying to find what's left of my Gundam Sentinel info about the Pegasus III, but no go.

Tiny  :) Just as well the figure is not to scale. A 1/2200 Noa Bright would be a bugger to paint  ;)

There are a few more ships close to this scale that I have in 1/2400. White Base, Zanzibar & Gwazine. Bandai must just pull the scale out of their ar5e as they are all over the place with these older kits  :o

I just ran a search for 1/2200 scale anything. Guess what was the ONLY known kit released in that scale? :(

Finally in hand, and it is TINY. The box is pretty much the same size as the old 1/220 Zeta Gundam kits---EG not even big enough to carry a Maccas cheeseburger in. The kit is almost insignificantly tiny for a hip model, I'm guessing it's only half again bigger than the gashapon Cosmo Fleet toys of the ships.

Will put more in as soon as I have time. Had a long day wrangling the post office for this stuff.
