Gundam Unicorn

Project N-Unicorn - Update 01


Project N-Unicorn/Nu-nicorn/νnicorn has swung into high gear. At least 80% of the pieces on this kit are getting individual attention. The brunt of the pieces being left alone are of the orange psycho frame. Aside from a few internal frame pieces that never see the light of day the rest are either being painted grey, a shade of silver, or being left alone and dull coated. The shades of grey are just slightly different enough that it breaks up the frame nicely. Though those subtle differences will likely be lost in the end photos.

Since I want to leave the psycho frame alone, every outer armor piece needs to be dull coated individually. Yes, every one. Most of the white one will remain clean, others will get a decal or two, and still others be painted in line with the Nu Gundam colour scheme. Black, red, and yellow. A few bits here and there, such as the shield, are also receiving some light grey internal tones to help break up the white.

Project N-Unicorn - Start


Of my three upcoming MG Unicorn projects this is the second, project N-Unicorn*. It's going to be a standard MG Unicorn, with the MG Banshee yellowish psycho frame, and a Nu Gundam color scheme. Here are a few pictures of the kit pre-paint. Frankly I think the clear yellowish pieces look pretty good with the white armor.

It's been a long haul (the project officially started August 4th, 2011) but my MG Delta Plus has finally been completed. This morning I flipped a coin to see which should come first, my retrospective of the kit or all the pretty photos. Thus, if you'd like to read about the trials and tribulations of this build continue on. If you'd just like to scope out the pretty pictures just jump forward to the latter section of this article!
