Yes an MG Gundam Unicorn Ver. Ka.. :3
Working with older kits like the GP01 FB and tha FA-ZZ (which was released on 1997 and 2000 respectively) has really made me appreciate this one (released on 2007).
Everything looks awesome.. From the minimalistic white design of the Box, the quality of the plastic, downright to the manuals. One thing I don’t like though is that the psychoframe is in clear pink xD
I did choose between this and a Zeta Gundam 2.0, decided not to buy any and walk out of the store even though they were having a 20% sale on the gunpla.
Returned a day later only to find out that the 20% sale was only on the previous day and lost the chance to get another 600 JPY off the price tag. xD
Been doing a lot of gaming and watching anime these past few days that I’ve forgotten altogether to post a WIP when I finished the arms and backpack.
I’m really liking the overall design of this gundam, no inner frames at all though. Just armors over another armor.
The only part in this WIP that has the Full Armor parts equipped, don’t expect the arms to be any more bulkier than this. Lol
This backpack pretty much reminds me of the G-Defenser.. If they’ve added a bit more details and its own cockpit it could be a unit itself.
Spent a total of 11 hours building what you see above. Weapons and extra armor still aren’t built, then there’s also the painting and topcoat. xD
Spent another 2 hrs on this guy and got the head and skirt built.
This be an old kit so the torso doesn’t have any inner frames but it’s engineered nicely though. You just have to built the armor over another armor xD
Slapped the core block inside instead of the core fighter. Yeah the core block looks dull, I’m not complaining though.. It won’t be seen once the gunpla is built.
Err.. That’s pretty much how ZZ’s skirt would look like, for anyone who owns an actions base you would notice that the skirt’s connector is design similarly to one.
Overall I’m not regretting buying this first over the Zeta Gundam 2.0, though I’m painting this one in another color.. Thinking of going either something similar to a FAZZ or a Nu.
Been too busy with college that I didn’t notice I haven’t posted a single entry for this month. Here comes the newly bought gunpla, the MG Full Armor ZZ Gundam.
I find it funny that once again I skipped buying a ver. 2.0 for an older gunpla. The first was the MG GP01 FB over the MG Gelgoog 2.0, now this over an MG Zeta Gundam 2.0.
Compared with normal sized mobile suits like the Mk-II and Zaku II the Full Armor ZZ Gundam’s box is really huge! Comes with 31 runners at that.. xD
For anyone wondering.. I haven’t forgotten about the photoshoot/review of the GP01 and RX-178 Mk-II, will do it whenever I’m in the mood.
Finished painting everything (skipped the inner frame because that’s just a waist of paint).. Still has to apply the decals and do the panel lines.
Had tons of mistakes on this guy, good thing I kept my cool and calmly tried to fix them all up. Now isn’t that noticeable unless you really look for them.
Still have to paint the insides of the verniers red, initial plan was them to be in gold but unfortunately I ran out of it..
Am too cheap to buy a new can just for the verniers. (Yes, I’ll be doing some masking for the shoulder armors and white part thingy).
Not really liking the decals/clear stickers that came with this kit (too big for my taste), will use the leftovers from the Zaku II and Mk-II..
P.S. Next update would be the full review alongside the photodump, would be done by the 2nd week of March at the earliest.
