Its good to see the variety that can be acheived with the same kit, some paints and hard work.
My target was to use aftermarket detail parts and pay tribute to a familiar character from my childhood, who also carried a very large weapon.
So we Started with the Bandai Hi-v (Hi-Nu) Gundam Ver. Ka and C hobby detail set.
And my ‘muse’ was the original (and best) Megatron from the original series.
So what we got was the original Hi Nu
Transformed into ‘Hi Nu Tron’
Full build post coming soon.

which will be dressed up with once it arrives from Mr Ebay
Out Of Box it builds to look like this
But I plan on something a bit more recognizable, at least in colour and taking inspiration from other TV/Movies like these other builders have
Completed build here
Well, after many months of speculation, and many weeks of waiting on my pre-order this morning that special email from HLJ.com arrived with those magic words.
We’re pleased to inform you that payment has been completed for the following items, and they have been moved into your Private Warehouse at HLJ. BAN994365 1/60 PG Unicorn Gundam
The kit itself left only silver coins from NZ$180. That may sound a lot but a couple of bigger MG kits will set you back about the same amount if the exchange rate is not favorable.
I have the LED set on back-order and am hoping that comes through this weekend as experience shows I will need to release the stock Monday at the latest if I want it here before we head to small town Waikato for Xmas.
Otherwise this series will have to wait until after new years 🙁
