ZGMF-X42S Destiny. After about a day of furious snapping, the Destiny is finished. Also, I got some new lights for my photo booth so the lighting is a bit more even. I think I need one more to properly light the Gundam. The build was pretty straight forward, in the RG style, legs, torso, waist, arms, head in that order. Backpack and weapons came next and were much simpler to build than those of the Freedom. I do not miss putting on each wing individually
The Destiny doesn't seem to suffer from the same back-heavy issues that the Freedom had. It seems to be relatively poseable without a stand for ground poses. I'm starting to dislike RG hands as they seem to get more and more fragile with each new kit.
I'll be pane lining and stickering this kit with the included stickers. Except for maybe the stickers for the shield, I may end up painting those. I've still got the beam rifle and shield to build for this kit, but the backpack's weapons (anti-ship sword and gun) are complete along with the wings.
