Real Grade GNT-0000 00 Qan [t]


Introduction:

The RG Qan[t] is a great example of a kit that I picked up entirely on a whim. Originally I convinced the staff at Walt's Hobby Shop in Syracuse to open up and display this kit for customers. And so, it sat in a display cabinet for a while with its guts all over. After about a month or two I decided that it was looking lonely, so I bought it. Turns out, that was a pretty good decision.

I completed a review of this kit a short while ago. If you'd like to hear more about the build experience then check it out.

Kit Talk:

This was a basic and quick painted straight build. I am moving across the country this week, so, leading up to the move, I wanted to finish as many kits as I could.


This is the first time I have used 'Finisher's Model Paints' on a kit. The cobalt blue color is super saturated and vibrant. But, I had to apply 3 coats to achieve a consistent color. I'm not sure if this is the intended results, or if I ended up with a bad bottle. After applying the basecoat, I added some grey details using a hand brush and 'phantom grey' from Vallejo paints.

Decals are from the official RG Qant[t] waterslide set. In hindsight, I should also have used the HG decal set, as they're modeled after the 'designer' Qan [t].

Equipment:


Aside from the main weapon a transformable melee and ranged weapon GN Sword V, the Qan [t] features six weidable or remotely controlled Sword bits.













Action Poses:




The action base connects attaches at an angle instead of straight on. This isn't good or bad, just a weird quirk.





The GN bit holder can swing around to act like a shield.





The laziest 'gun mode' I've seen, the blade rotates 90 degrees and the handle swings down.
