Couple of days ago, I finished up my High-Grade RX-0 Gundam Unicorn in ‘Unicorn mode’. This is one of those kits that I have been wanting to build for since I purchased it, but I would get distracted by the newest purchase or realizing that I need to get to another kit that has been sitting in the queue.
The RX-0 Unicorn Gundam is from the anime Mobile Suit Gundam – Unicorn Gundam and is operated by Banagher Links, the protagonist of the anime.
This is the Ban Dai 1/144th scale High-Grade kit from November 2009 and is number 101 in the Universal Century timeline.
Since the armor of the Unicorn Gundam is all white, I planned from the beginning to panel line as I went along with the construction. The only change made to the kit, was to remove the ‘flag’ from the tip of the horn. I am also playing with the concept of panel-lining the Hyper Bazooka.
With the completion of the RX-0 Unicorn Gundam in ‘Unicorn Mode’, I will be starting the Unicorn Gundam in ‘Destroy Mode’. The major difference is that the armor pulls from the frame and exposes the psyco-frame, that emits a pinkish-red glow.
