This 1/48 scale head display base is a free gift that came with the January issue of Dengeki Hobby magazine. Well it wasn’t exactly free coz the price of the magazine was higher than the average issue. The head can be transformed into the Destroy and Unicorn modes pretty easily and at the back there is a stand for 1/144 scale models. The whole thing was molded in white except for the pink transparent parts. It already looks fine assembled as it is, but that won’t satisfy me.
After looking at some reference pics from the internet, I decided to give it a proper paint job. The white parts are sprayed with Gundam Color Spray 04: White pearl semi gloss, the neck sprayed with Mr Color Dark gray (2) and the underside and stand were colored with Mr Color German Gray. The V-fins were handpainted with enamel yellow. Since it didn’t come with any stickers for the eyes, I used some leftover foil stickers. And then I found out that the February issue of Dengeki Hobby came with proper eye stickers and other decals for the Unicorn head. It’s a bit too late now, I’ve already finished with it and won’t be buying another head just to use up them stickers. Anyway, I used some water decals on mine.
Here’s the finished product and I’ll follow it up with some pics with my SHCM-Pro Unicorn. Stay tuned
