HGUC #141 RAS-96 Anksha

$32.99

During the events of Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn, the Earth Federation employed the RAS-96 Anksha, a Mass Production Transformable Mobile Suit, to defend their massive atmospheric transport ships such as the Garuda. The RAS-96 Anksha is the successor to the NRX-044 Asshimar developed by the Titans, of which it shares its iconic circular Mobile Armor Mode. To reduce production costs, the RAS-96 Anksha adopted many components from the readily available RGM-89 Jegan. These changes give the RAS-96 Anksha an appearance closer to standard Federation Mobile Suits than its predecessor.

The HGUC RAS-96 Anksha model kit includes:

  • Shield Binder x2
  • Beam Saber x2
  • Display Stand

Bandai started from the ground up when designing this kit, giving it a superb level of posability; without compromising the model’s proportions. The build is unique enough for even the most experienced Gunpla builder to get excited! There are tons of moving parts to convert to Mobile Armor mode, but a partsformation is required to achieve the effect. Bandai outlined the steps for the partsformation on the color pages in the manual to make it very clear how to transform the RAS-96 Anksha successfully.

Weapons and Other Notable Attributes 

The Shield Binders attach to the forearms of the RAS-96 Anksha when in MS form. The Binders reattach to the exterior of the Mobile Armor once transformed. The Beam Rifles contained in the Shield Binders are the primary weapon of the RAS-96 Anksha in both forms. The RAS-96 Anksha is also equipped with two Beam Sabers for close-quarters engagements. The Mobile Armor Mode can be used as a sub-flight system like the Type 89 Base Jabber. Bandai has included two optional handles and a 3mm peg adapter for attaching another HGUC model to the top of the RAS-96 Anksha.

Tips and Tricks –

By implementing the technique of Top Coating, you can do a great deal to help preserve the longevity of your models. This process will protect the original plastic of your model kit and prepare it for any additional modeling techniques to follow.

You can drastically improve your results by making the details pop on the HGUC #141 RAS-96 Anksha with Panel Lining. The simplest solution for this is Gundam Markers or Tamiya Panel Line Fluid. If you’re up to a challenge making panel wash is always a great option too! It is always recommended to Topcoat with clear gloss beforehand, as some of the products commonly used for Panel Lining will degrade the untreated plastics over time.

Another way to keep adding detail is by applying Stickers/Marking DecalsTop Coating before the application will help decals stick to the surface much better. Using Top Coat after application will help hide the seams on traditional sticker decals as well as waterslides. This additional step will also keep them from peeling over time. Using Decals is a great way to add an even greater level of detail to your scale models.
