Few more pics of the runners etc

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

My thoughts:
the final product is epic, i love this MS and the kit, the proportions are great as are the details, the runners are a little weird, especially for someone who hasnt built such a modern BB till now, the parts are really close to the gate, unlike normal gates, see the pic above for better understanding, the manual says to just press the peices off, no nippers required, i wouldnt recommend this though as the nub marks are huge and it wouldnt take long for a piece to be stressed or broken whilst trying, its not a bad thing though the gates when nipped off with nippers leaves such a tiny nub mark thats easy to remove :D
like most BBs the details come from the decals, but this kits foil decals fit perfectly even the circle ones on the chest, plus it comes with regular stickers (not foil) for suit markings and a zeon logo.
im not a fan of the lotto, sure its a nice touch to have a little to scale lotto and the legs do a simple fold to turn into tank tracks, but its all one color, except a sticker for the visor, and the only movement is the legs for anything serious a lot of work would be needed, to be honest i would have preferred they added some more detail to the kshatriya then have the lotto, the under wing funnel things for instance would have been kool but im sure theres people who will disagree here, over all i love this kit

my build - i went to town with damage and weathering, check it out here

I've built this too (pics as soon as the hlj comp is done and I can post them) and I love it as a kit but I too wish there was more detail under the binders.

Awesome kit. This one and the Sinanju (and I reckon subsequent Unicorn SD's) have the super slim gate connections and are really satisfying builds for minimal outlay. I built and panel lined this kit when I was in Japan last and it kept me occupied for a good couple if evenings. Highly reccomend.

Thanks for the detailed contributions to r&d Fury ;)
