Pretty Lady Sun

i haven't touched a Gundam Kit in what feels like years. i'm getting back into the swing of things with something simple so i don't go crazy :) before all else props go to Jaycee for motivating me to Gunpla with his SD talk. hehehe

meet Sonshoko Gerbera,

from the BB Senshi Sangokuden line of Kits. this is the first female BB gundam i've ever built, and she looks cute! since this line is based on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms epic of Chinese Literature, Sonshoko here is based off of...

I'd say it looks pretty close. they're both cute! hehe... not sure if i'll hunt down her Husband Liu Bei though, Lady Sun looks charming on her own.

anyway, Sonshoko comes in two sprues with one rubberized joint sprue. the branches are the type that's easy to cut and leaves little flash to clean up, common feature on most FG kits.

after a while of washing these sprues clean from any mold release agent, i did a fitting test with all the parts.

gotta say they've sure improved the SD line since the ones i built in the early 90's as a kid. and they have LEGS now! not just stubby toes, LOL Sonshoko can strike a pose real good, and if it's one thing i look for in toys nowadays it's articulation. :)

she also comes with some paper aprons you can put on her which only raises up her cute factor even more!

aside from that her instructions are a mini-comic on one side which speaks of her (poor) cooking exploits and her (unfortunate) brothers acting as taste testers. i'll prolly make that the next post.

dunno when i'll finish this kit, there's only a little prepwork to be done, some filling here and there and then it's off to painting. i'll be extra careful with this and not mess it up too bad, still wanna make her look pretty. :))

here goes nothing! B)
