Basic snap fit, just used stickers that came in the box. Used whiteboard marker and fine liner I bought at a stationery shop for the panel lines. Kit is straightforward to build but the Dragoons are a bit repetitive.
Be careful when cutting out the leg in step 02-1 and 03-1. I accidentally cut off the attachment point for part E9, and had to use Tamiya cement to fix it.
It's pretty back heavy but if you pose the legs carefully he can stand up on his own.
This SF is definitely surpass its PG counter in terms of details....yet for Seed and Seed Destiny kits which each and every one has a pretty big backpack sometimes really can cause instability of these kits...Therefore a stand is needed ...Now that is where Bandai comes in with those fancy stands to rip your wallet in pieces!!!
Thanks for the heads up and I really looking forward to get this kit....hopefully before its out of stock
