Model Kits
This page is devoted to some of the many detailed model kits which were produced from Top O Nerae! Gunbuster.
Almost all of them were made by the now-defunct company General Products, which is what Gainax called themselves
when they were strictly a model making company. These come from my personal collection.
1/500 Gunbuster Kit
1/500 Scale Gunbuster Resin Cast Model
Manufacturer: General Products   30 Pieces
Very detailed and heavy resin cast of the Gunbuster.
Quite rare if you can find one, and can be expensive.

1/5 Noriko Takaya HG Kit
1/5 Scale Noriko Takaya Resin Cast Model
Manufacturer: General Products   8 Pieces
Very large figure kit of Noriko in a candidly cheerful pose.
Sculpted by BOME. One of the most sought after of the
many resin kits produced of Noriko. This kit is also quite
rare, but is not as expensive as some of the others.

1/6 Noriko Takaya Kit
1/6 Scale Noriko Takaya Resin Cast Model
Manufacturer: Kotobukiya   9 Pieces
Most recent of all the Gunbuster kits produced. Sculpted
by Hiroshi Inagaki, Noriko's
"Aim for the Top!" attitude is
wonderfully captured. Very clean mold lines and easy to
assemble. Also includes a base featuring the
Cosmoship
Exelion
. While no longer in production, this kit is
relatively easy to find.

1/500 Buster Machine 1 Kit
1/500 Scale Buster Machine 1 Resin Model Kit
Manufacturer: General Products   32 Pieces
Piloted by Noriko Takaya, Buster Machine 1 comprises
one-half of the machine called
Gunbuster. A great
looking model kit and very detailed. This kit, along with
its matching cousin,
Buster Machine 2, can be very hard
to find as they are pretty rare. If you ever come across
them, buy them before you lose the chance.

Piloted by Kazumi Amano, Buster Machine 2 completes
the second half of the
Gunbuster when linked to Noriko's
Buster Machine 1. Another great kit by General Products.

1/72 RX-7 Machine Weapon Kit
1/72 Scale RX-7 Machine Weapon Resin Model
Manufacturer: General Products   27 Pieces
One of 2 different kits made of the RX-7, this kit is cast
from resin (the other being in 1/35 scale and made of
vinyl) and is easy to build. Includes 6 head types so you
can choose which character's mecha you'd like to
display. The box art displays Noriko's
RX-7 Machine
Weapon
. Extremely rare kit to find in good condition.

1/1200 Cyzlar/Sizzler Kit
1/1200 Scale Cyzlar/Sizzler Resin Model
Manufacturer: General Products   20 Pieces
Very nice resin cast kit of the mass produced Gunbuster
fighting platform created to replace the aging RX-7
Machine Weapon
. While non-transformable and smaller
in size, the
Sizzler was a formidable combat machine in
the fight against the alien menace. Very rare.

A rather easy to find model kit of the ship commanded by
Noriko's father, Admiral Yuzo Takaya. Reasonably priced
and builds up into a nice kit.
