MG Shenlong Complete!


Another straight to the finished product post! I don't want these kind of posts to be a thing since I do like posting my WIP. Hopefully, it's just a phase.

On to the pictures!











 














 Some Thoughts

I realize that this particular rendition of the Gundam is not very popular among the community, but I'm still glad that Bandai created the MG versions of all the Gundam Wing suits. The completed out-of-the-box look was a bit bland looking for me, so I thought I'd make it more interesting by using metallic paint on the colored pieces and use gold instead of yellow. The result is much more interesting to look at in my opinion and I'm happy it came out well. It's too bad that the Dragon Fang does not extend like it does in the anime, but the enlarged shield is a plus for me since the original shield was much to small compared to the suit itself. Overall, it's a great build, but painting will be required to make it stand out. Now only if Bandai prints out the Nataku...

Thanks for looking!
