Bought myself 3 boxes of HGUC 1/144 Dreissen (Unicorn Version) shortly after its release earlier this month, and you may or may not know that I tend to have a liking for grunts and buy multiple units of them, so this is no exception ^^;
I don't review models very often, but I thought this post will serve as a teaser for now before the real one.
If there is one thing I have dreaded over the building of the 3 Dreissens, then it would have to be the fancy carving/emblems on the sleeves of the Dreissens. I don't feel like slapping the foil stickers on the uneven surface of the nicely carved sleeves, so I thought I would colour them with Gundam markers. And since white is not the easiest colour to use for Gundam markers, I thought to myself "how about giving them gold & black like Sinanju and give them more of an elite status?".
Here's a quick result: 3 Dreissens ready for sortie. Black Tri-Stars shall rise again!
While I don't paint Gunplas normally, I think I may give these guys some decals and top coat later on. Well, we shall see once I have the time to do a proper post for these guys in June!
