BB Senshi Sangokuden Tenshouryu Koumei Nu Gundam Part 6

Only half Nu Gundam at this stage

Dusting off an old Gunpla project that has been hibernating in my closet since late June:

BB Senshi Sangokuden Tenshouryu Koumei Nu Gundam. ^^ An extremely versatile High Grade-like kit with various form configurations to play with. ^^ From the introduction on this kit way back when it was first announced, it might be even more exciting than Gotaitei Sonken Gundam Korinpaku. Even though I kept it in stasis for a very long time now, I'm actually very excited to complete it. ^^

Starting the assembly with Koumei Nu Gundam's unarmored form:

Parts of Koumei Nu Gundam's main body.

The extensive details on the golden and red parts make them seem out of place when compared with the overall front skirt armor parts at this point, but due to the assembly design, they are not suitable to be left out.

As part of the model's transformation gimmick, the front portion of the foot is movable.

Foil sticker applied to the eyes.

All major separable components.

Koumei Nu Gundam in plain form is completed. ^^

Some simple action poses with Koumei Nu Gundam:

Comparison with another transformable BB Senshi Sangokuden kit - Rikuson Z Plus:

I always thought that Koumei Nu Gundam's head looks small as compared to the others in this model kit line. ^^; Comparing it with Rikuson Z Plus, the slightly shorter helmet and smaller face mask do make Koumei Nu Gundam's head seems smaller. ^^;

Both kits have bendable feet for transformation.

Will move on to the armors' assembly in the next posting. ^^
