BB Senshi Sangokuden Kibutei Sousou Gundam, Joko Serpent, Sohi Gundam Set Part 9

The prince of darkness

Assembling the second model from BB Senshi Sangokuden Kibutei Sousou Gundam, Joko Serpent, Sohi Gundam Set after the completion of Joko Serpent last month. ^^ The one getting the call is Sousou Gundam's son, the crown prince of Giga - Sohi Gundam. ^^

Boxes of parts for Sohi Gundam.

Parts of Sohi Gundam's main body.

The nice curvy foil stickers are used for the pattern on Sohi Gundam's rear skirt armor.

Foil sticker is used for the Gundam's eyes as well.

All major separable components.

Sohi Gundam in plain form is completed. ^^

A BB Senshi character with an overall dark color scheme but all white for its head. ^^;

Not too many parts for the three swords (from top to bottom): Itenken (威天剣 - gold), Seihouken (星凰剣 - blue), 黑翼刀.

Assembling the jewel-sets onto the cross guard of Itenken and Seihouken. I take the not-so clear distinction behind the front and rear faces (image on the left shows the rear side of the cross guard) as evidence that the paint work did in Part 3 was successful. ^^

Minimal effort needed to complete the three swords.
No assembly is needed for 黑翼刀 at all.

Sohi Gundam with Itenken and Seihouken.

A pair of connector and slot on the two swords' pommels enables the two to be connected.

The combined sword called Houou Shichiseizou (鳳凰七星槍). 槍 literally means spear instead of sword. ^^
Houou Shichiseizou is the weapon of Kibutei Sousou Gundam.

The overall length of the combined sword is 18.5cm. ^^

Technically, Houou Shichiseizou can only be wielded by his father. The combined sword is shown here just to give you an idea of its ridiculous length. ^^

黑翼刀 can be mounted to the back of the model.

All of Sohi Gundam's armor parts.

Foil stickers are used for the two large hexagonal areas on the shield pieces.
The slots to hold Itenken and Seihouken are hidden beneath the stickers after the latter are applied.

The white underneath of the sticker can be seen very clearly on the rear face of the shield pieces. ^^;

Adding "shoes" to Sohi Gundam's feet XD

The basic helmet.
The super large front and rear forehead sensors (not sure if they are meant to be sensors on this BB Senshi kit ^^;) seem a bit too plain to be left untouched.

Metallic green tape is used to form the forehead sensors. ^^

Metallic green stickers applied to the sensors.

Done for the helmet. ^^

The completion of Sohi Gundam in armored form will be featured in the next posting. ^^

Metallic green tape is a good idea.
Thank you for the tips, never thought of that before.
