This crazy idea started when I realised I have a spare head from my Gusion Rebake Full City kit https://itisagunpla.com/hg-gundam-gusion-rebake-full-city/.
The narrow head is quite unique hence I kind of not wanting it to go to waste. At that time I also bought 2nd hand Vidar and Kamaris kit from eBay.
The kits are already built and are not in good condition but I bought it mainly for the parts for kit bash.
I also looked through some of my old boxes and found that my Astaroth has a spare torso!
The 2nd hand parts parts are loose and weak. But from experience, this can be easily fixed if I painted the joints, this will help tightened up the connections when assembled.
I wasn’t planning to make this a big deal, thinking the it is mostly spare parts (following in the same story line of IBO). Thus I just thought a single pink theme will be easy. At the end I added some grey parts to bring out the colour.
Initially, I was 2 mind about the pink scheme, so I thought I will sleep over it. The next day under the natural light I was surprised it looks actually quite nice and it is a nice contrast over the rest of my whitish/blue gundams collection.
I was pleasantly surprise that the kit comes together quite well and doesn’t really look odd.
It stands out being pink with the rest of my collection and I am loving it.
This also reminds me of a Wanzer from Front Mission.
I really enjoyed this creative build. There are times during the build I was quite uncertain how this will end up.
But I guess it is a bit of a blind faith, but I am happy how it turns out.
I am really encouraged to try out different colours and kits and be creative in my builds.
