Gundam: MC Model MSN-04-02 SD Nightingale (Snapfitted)

First off, it took me one whole day to finish this kit yesterday, no painting or decaling yet, just snapfitting, sanding and abit of glue and seamline removing. Overall, its a nice kit, although not made by BANDAI, this kit deserve some credit. The quality is pretty much decent and nearly as good as BANDAI. Parts and pieces are well molded, coloured and fits nicely (although I do see some stress marks on some areas). You can't get any other SD models larger than this (may be), its like a MG version of a SD kit , LED + batteries also included for the mono eye. Its money well spent.

I decided to fit all the metal thrusters and funnels. It made the Nightingale heavier than usual. If not for the rear 'tail', it would fall on its back.

Carefully fitted and balanced on the action base, otherwise it will toppled down.

The LED, simple gimmick.

Bought this gatling gun by Kotobukiya lastweek. The barrel rotates by means of a spring coil that you need to wind up at the rear. Cool feat!

Since Nigtingale does not have any extra hands for holding a gun or a saber like any other Gunpla kits, I crafted one by using a bootleg and fit it on the right arm to hold the gatling gun, although its abit loose. Now Nightingale got a new gatling gun in its weaponry. However the arm cannot handle the weight.

Looks menacing!
