I found these at my local anime convention today.  I didn’t know these existed!

I found some information about them:

Apparently, they (at least the one with the old-style artwork) were a prize for visiting stations.

 

They’re very basic kits, definitely not High Grade.  The kit in the old-style box even requires paint, as it’s only molded in silver.  But they are 1/144, so they can still call my layout home.

I built the one in the larger white box.  With its simpler construction, it went together much faster than a HG kit, but it’s poseability is significantly more limited.  And this thing is GREEN!

The other one will need a bottle of Tamiya X15 Light Green before I start on that one.

Those JR East Shinkansen livery ones look pretty good. Treading on the toes of Shinkalion a bit.  I got a free Uniqlo Zaku II kit in white and red as part of a promotion some years ago. They also did the RX-78 Gundam. These were from some quite old moulds which is probably the same as these.

The colour on the JR ones look nicer than the Uniqlo ones, but you really need an E235 to go with it.

Don’t tempt me… I’m already telling myself “No more trains! No more trains!”  The more I look at these Gundams, though…
