RX-0 Unicorn Gundam + Head Display Base

From Gunpla

RX-0 Unicorn Gundam + Destroy Mode Head Display Base
*only realized that the display base is only compatible with HGUC grade Gunplas -__-"
(The head display base) Looks pretty plain with the all white parts + semi-transparent red inner parts only; luckily i had some extra redundant decals from the MG kit to bling up this display base (not yet applied at the time this picture was taken). Still lacks color coding for the inner neck part, gold coating for the antenna & green flourescent decals to light up its eyes. It transform quite effortlessly though, unlike its MG counterpart =)

Revisiting Project MG RX-0 Unicorn Gundam ~
From Gunpla

*just assembled the leftover uncompleted arsenal from almost 2 years ago, the Magnum Beam rifle (not in picture yet) which, actually has more parts than the Head Display Base itself!
looks cool & sophisticated but is quite a pain in the butt to transform, & rather fragile too... the snap fit parts just wear out too soon, after a couple of transformations in between Unicorn & Destroy Mode & is starting to fall apart already... *strictly a display only model, & it's tough choosing either between the 2 modes to stick with. Updates in Destroy mode to come soon (after i overhaul my MG Unicorn) xp

Wow I'm impressed of the stuff you did on the unicorn.. Has matte topcoat?

thanks for dropping by, mkuain =)
i'm still strictly a snap-fit enthusiast; have yet to advance to spray painting / coating level =p
both the mg & display base are only snap-build with panel lining + decal-ed for details... =)
