A vast majority of the kits I build are originally hand me downs from people who were no longer interested and wanted to offload their kits but didn't want to throw them out. In fact a lot what I have are incomplete models that need a lot of surgery. This particular kit I volunteered to take on for a local anime club in order to make something that could be offered as a good display piece. It's going to be raffled off at the end of the quarter so I have some time before it happens.
This is missing the V fin, its gun, and has 6 points of articulation. On the other hand the detail on the face is really sharp. I'm planning on chopping it up to put into a dynamic static pose with some scratch built parts.
