Overall, I liked the Gundam Unicorn anime, although I did think the story wasn’t the best I’ve seen from the franchise, it featured some well-designed mobile suits like the Gundam Unicorn itself and the Kshatriya.

Which leads me to my latest acquisition with the HGUC AMX-101E Schuzrum Galluss model produced by Bandai. The Schuzrum Galluss is a Neo Zeon assault suit that was featured in a brief sequence in the last episode of Gundam Unicorn.

Although its appearance was all too brief, the action scenes that featured the mobile suit was probably some of the best moments of the final episode.

I like the design of the mobile suit with its Qubeley-like head and slim look. Another attribute that I liked was its weapons which includes its spike shields and magnet armor chain mine.

With this model I’ve decided to add additional weapons for the Schuzrum Galluss which are two Panzerfausts from the Weapon Unit Kotobukiya line.

I don’t think it will take me that long to paint the model, since it has fewer plates compared to what I’m used to. Updates soon.

HGUC Schuzrum Gallus comes with three bags containing all the plates, accessories and decals for the kit.
