HGUC #29 MSA-0011[Ext] Ex-S Gundam


The MSA-0011[Ext] Ex-S Gundam is one of the many excellent Mobile Suit designs brought to us by the Gundam Sentinel photonovel. Like the MSZ-010 ZZ Gundam, the Ex-S Gundam combines a standalone Core Fighter with a Top and Bottom Fighter to achieve Mobile Suit Form. Each piece features its own cockpit, allowing for a total of 3 pilots to utilize the Ex-S Gundam. This configuration was unnecessary, as the only Ex-S Gundam used in battle featured a highly sophisticated Artificial Intelligence-based Computer System, referred to by the acronym ALICE (Advanced Logistic Inconsequence Cognizing Equipment). Unlike other Combat Computers, ALICE learns and develops further through combat, even featuring a sense of self-preservation.

This HGUC rendition of the Ex-S Gundam includes the following:

  • Beam Smart Gun
  • Beam Smart Gun Support Arm
  • Unpainted Beam Saber x2


This High Grade version of the Ex-S Gundam does not transform into the S-Gundam Attacker or Bomber like its Master Grade Counterpart. However, the 1/144 S-Gundam Attacker is sold separately as a part of the EX Model series. The limbs articulate with a simple polycap structure, inhibiting some posability but providing a beginner-friendly construction. The torso attaches to the waist via a small peg, which does not allow the same posability as a ball joint but is much more stable. This added stability prevents the Gundam from being weighed down by its gigantic backpack.

Weapons and Other Notable Attributes 

Speaking of the gigantic equipment, the Beam Smart Gun is almost as long as the Ex-S Gundam is tall! This weapon is so large that the Gundam uses a support arm to have any chance at holding the rifle. Attached to the Ex-S Gundam’s backpack are four Beam Cannons used in both Mobile Suit Mode and the G-Cruiser Configuration. The Ex-S Gundam also includes a pair of Beam Sabers, which come with unpainted blades attached to the hilts. The proper storage location for these weapons would be within the knees, but it’s not a gimmick featured on this kit. These weapons will need a good dose of Blue paint to achieve color accuracy.

13 Runners total (A, B, C, D, E, F, G[x2], H[x2], PC15[x2])

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 #29 MSA-0011[Ext] Ex-S Gundam 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.
