This is my latest build, the GN-0000 OO Gundam from the anime series Mobile Suit Gundam OO and debuted during the second season. In the anime, the OO has issues stabilizing its twin GN drive system. This issue is resolved by combining with the O Riser and the combined unit is known as the OO Riser.
This the High-Grade kit from BanDai. It was built straight from the box, with some minor detail painting and panel lining. The one thing I am very proud of is the transparent blue on the GN Sword IIs. I ended up using a product call The Detailer, which is a water-based paint used by a lot of car modellers to detail chrome parts. I was also very impressed with the articulation of the kit. At one point in time I had the OO sitting down on a jar of paint.
After completing the build, I pulled out my previously completed O Riser and combined it with the OO. It does look bulky, but then again you are attaching a jet/spacecraft to the back and shoulders of a mobile suit. I will not be keeping it in this form, as I have the Real Grade kit of the OO Riser in the stash waiting for its turn.
Next up on the bench…
