This is a beautiful Master Grade model, of my favorite mecha from Gundam 00. This is the first time I've done a complete dull cote for a Gundam kit, and I'd say it lends the model a very realistic appearance. I'm quite happy with how the metallic paint on the LongRifle capacitors ended up looking.
I ended up using very few of the decals included in the kit (especially not the dry-transfers), opting instead for my own custom-printed decals, as well as few decals from some old Zoids models. I'm very pleased by how my "Pink Flower" logo turned out.
From a mechanical standpoint, the engineering is brilliant. Like some of the new Master Grade kits (and a select few High Grade kits), some of its joints abandon traditional polycap joints in favor of ABS (like Lego!) joints. This allows for some very cool play features like opening legs for beam saber storage and a removable GN-Tau Reactor.
