[Review] 1/100 Infinite Justice Conversion

Here's a short review on Super-G recast VP Infinite Justice conversion. A MG Infinite Justice is required for the inner frame and flight pack. This conversion kit mainly concentrates on replacing the armour part pieces, not much changes to the flight pack except for the top 2 cannons.

Usual boxing from Super-G with a lousy out of focus photo pasted on the top.
Contents consist of:
- Plastic bag of parts, divided into multiple segments.
- 2 photo references of completed kit (Clear and sharp photos)
- 1 piece instruction manual
- Water-slide decal of stencils
- 1 small sheet of silver sticker (metal decal?)
- 2 metal beam sabres with clear beams

More details of this kit below

[Review] 1/100 Sword Calamity Conversion Part 2

After some slicing and dicing, test-fitted onto MG Freedom inner frame.
I found the nubs were kind of large, quite a bit of care needed when cutting them. Fitting was quite good, most parts went onto the frame without much problem, except for a few areas:

- Arm piece might have shrunk during casting, cracked when inserted onto the frame. Insert pla-plates inside the crack to widen it.
- Connecting joints from backpack to the swords too weak. Sliced off pegs and strengthen with brass rod inside.
- Warped swords.

More cleaning up of the surface will be needed before I proceed on to priming. I foresee a sanding and masking nightmare ahead......
Overall, I would rate this kit 7.5/10 for the casting and ease of fitting.
Thanks for looking!

[Review] 1/100 Sword Calamity Conversion Part 1

Here's a short open box review on the Neograde Sword Calamity Conversion kit recasted by Super-G. Bought it from Hong Kong during my trip there. This conversion kit uses MG Freedom as the base kit.

Boxing looks nice and sturdy, photos on the top and side weren't of the best quality, but it's the contents inside that matters.

Some background info about this Gundam. This conversion kit portrays the 2nd unit out of 3 units of Sword Calamity Gundams built. Piloted by Edward Harrelson of the Earth Alliance, which donned his markings of a rose and two swords that make a X on top of the rose on the left shoulder.
