Woo Hoo!  ;D Finally a Bandai Weapons set that doesn't give you a million pieces but you can only make one weapon.

This set allows you to make two cannons, two missile packs and two grenades.

The cannon is a fold out affair that is intended to be back pack mounted in the hole that all the GM type kits have in the centre of the back pack. The folding arm can be mounted on either side of the cannon so if you want to drill a couple of holes in the side of the back pack you can have a cannon on each side. There are a lot of seams that need filling but the end result will look great.

The missile pods are designed to take the place of the side skirt armour but you could put them anywhere, even in the holes on the arms for the shield. They have two individual missiles that can be modelled in or out of the pod. The pod itself has no seams to clean up but the missiles do.

Finally the potato masher hand grenades. Just right for a low tech Zaku or a Geara Zulu. They require a bit of seam cleaning.

All up a great set with endless possibilities and the best thing is it's set 01 so here's hoping there's more to come.

A quick knock up of the cannon.

Seams require a bit of effort as they cross flutes at the end of the barrel and in the piece that plugs into the back. You will need to rescribe the lines after sanding.

Hmm not bad I can see it being useful for lots of gunpla if you can mod to increase the size
