This build is by far one of my favorite, having spend so much time and effort to work on it. I am glad I manage to complete and learn so many new things for GBWC 2015. Unfortunately it not up to my expectations as there are still mistakes that I could have avoided. Looking forward, I can only continue to learn from my mistake and do better than this.

I started visualizing my version of Full Armor Unicorn Gundam last year jumping around different grade but finally picking on HG just so that I am able to deliver that vision I have in my head.
Keeping the essence of Unicorn Gundam wasn't easy, there were time I wanted to kit bash parts that will make the kit look bigger and meaner. However, the mobile suit isn't about massive destruction, it's about hope. The hope for a better future and the search for the truth behind Laplace's box. Paying attention to the design & story, I custom the kit so that it is still believable after Episode 7 is over.
The idea for the dio was for Neo Zeong to fell upon a asteroid kicking up the dust cloud. Some shading was apply but I felt it could been better show with appropriate weathering.
That it folks, I hope you guys enjoy this kit as much as I did.
I would like to take this opportunity to thanks my friend Edwin Lin for all the bromance moment when I was down.
Not forgetting my gf for being simply the best person in my life who supported and encourage me in almost anything I do.
Lastly my mum for every single thing that she have done.
