1/48 Unicorn Head display stand WIP + completed pics!

Posted: January 8, 2010 in Gunpla Reviews, WIP

As today is elearning day, i found some time after doing my online assignment^^

Since i have not gotten my tamiya masking tape yet, i decided to shove my XN raiser to one side for the time being…

But i wanted something quick and easy, so i decided to start on my Unicorn head.

It was quite fast, took me about 50 Minutes? Because i already panel lined the parts before this ^^

What did i mean by panel lining before this? I meant it like this.

My brother came up with the very good idea of panel lining the parts before cutting them, so that when assembled, it would take lesser time…

Painted the eyes

The interior of the Vfin was not painted in yellow, so i decided to spray paint it. There’s no masking involved, so it is safe to use the normal masking tape to hold it^^

The parts taped on, ready to be sprayed

Panel lined awaiting cleanup.

After cleanup, done the same to the other fin

The completed stand! Mine has a problem though, the bloody horn doesn’t close in very well… You can see for yourself in the pic above ==

Since my destroy mode is not built yet, i borrowed my bro’s unicorn mode for posing!

And to end off… I read in hobby search that there is another set of clear parts MG campaign… RX-78-2 OYW is included in the list… And i have just bought mine…==

Luckily the clear parts aren’t much of a big deal xD

So, what shall i build next? Maybe my kampfer, first time building a zeon MS!

Til next post!

  1. Hmm now that I finally saw somebody fixed this display stand, I think it looks rather odd… =/ Lucky I didnt get mine xD

  2. evolution says:

    Nice stand, too bad I don’t have the HGUC Unicorn to go along with it.

  3. Marzz says:

    @ astrayp03(zhe): lol, i think it looks ok.
    @ evolution: You have the stand too?

  4. heathorn says:

    the horn doesn’t close properly?
    go back to the store and ask for another XD

  5. divinelight says:

    so that’s a stand?
    Looks somewhat… weird? A head that you stomp all the time? 🙂

  6. rndm says:

    I don’t think the horn can close tightly enough though. Anyways, you should try to install LEDs on it. Its huge enough to be easily done (of course if you can’t get any LED stuff…). Otherwise, it looks nice as it is. ^^

    And, ROFL for smaller Unicorn on top of larger Unicorn.

  8. rockleelotus says:

    nice you finished yours 😀 your not going to paint the neck area grey?

    im not using mine as a stand yet, just keeping it as a bust, looks very cool ^^

  9. chubbybots says:

    Sweet you finished yours! But whaaa…that fin cannot be close properly is a let down though.

    @ Rockleelotus hmm I thought your stand was used as a head for someone already lol..

  10. Marzz says:

    @heathorn: then i would have unlimited supply of unicorn heads, eh? lol

    @Divinelight: as moemoekyun as stated, yes, this is a magazine exclusive item^^
