1/144 Gold Unicorn Mode Narrative Fenex Unboxing

This week’s big Gundam news is the 1/144 HGUC Unicorn Gundam Unit 3 Fenex (Unicorn Mode) (Narrative Ver.) (Gold Coating) kit (what a mouthful)! It’s not a completely new kit, per se, but a new version of an old favorite, challenging modellers who dare take on gold plating. Get your modeling tools ready: with runners as old as 2006, you’re going to have your hands full trying not to damage the coating while you build.

As always, we get a good front and back look at the completed kit, and some demonstrations of possible poses and gimmicks.

Here’s a bit of the kit’s backstory, with some lovely art of the Phenex descending from heaven like Gundam Jesus.

Gold Coated Runners

They look pretty, but with very little undergating, builders have their work cut out for them.

That’s it, that’s the undergating. I only took a quick look at the backs of the runners, but the wings are really the only parts where I saw any.

In general, if it's a detailed miniature that's too small to be useful for anything other than taking up space, she'll probably love it.
