Build Notes

This is my first official build, start to finish, in 2022.

I have not seen the anime yet, so I will not comment on accuracy to the design. As a mobile suit, I enjoy the overall look of the Kenbu. The overall design comes off as a mobile suit designed for a street fight.

As for the build is very clean, with any seam lines turned into panel lines. The color correcting stickers are standard for and HG, with the biggest offender being black stickers on the inside of the Finished shoulders. As I generally do, I did not use any of the stickers. Instead, hand painting the color corrections.

I decided to leave the straight sword in a deactivated state, by not painting the blade, since I will be displaying it primarily armed with the autocannon. The completed build was panel lined and top coated.
