This is my Unicorn. There are many like it but this one is mine. I finished my OVA RX-0 Unicorn Gundam finally. Took a long break for NaNoWriMo. Ended up writing over 30,000 words, but that's a topic for another post.

There aren't many kits that I've built that I've said, "I can't wait to build that again". Unicorn was one of those kits. And for building again, there's lots of variety. There's the ver Ka, Full Armor, Banshee, Phenex, and probably a Banshee Norn before too much longer.

The only real annoying part during the build was the shoulders. The transformation is interesting and relatively well done (save the knees). The head transforms with very little part swapping, more remove, rotate and reapply. I use the swappable v-fins and not the openable one. I think it looks better. Its actually painted in Vallejo Gold because paint > stickers. I don't think I'll end up painting the Unicorn, probably just top coat and call it a day. I hate painting white.
