SD Sword Impulse Gundam

After quite a long hiatus, I finished a project that should have been a short project between the larger projects like MG's. Since the building frequency has been lowering significantly, it took a long time to get this one ready. I started the SD Sword Impulse way back in 2011. Well....in the meantime we have a new Head of State in The Netherlands......

Sword Silhouette
The modification wasn't that difficult. As base there was the original SD Force Impulse Gundam. But since there wasn't any additional Silhouette-pack, I was forced to use another pack. For the Sword Silhouette pack I used the No Grade 1/144 Sword impulse Gundam. The only difficulty was that the 1/144 pack wasn't wide enough the get directly attached to the SD. So I cut off the the part that should attach to the Impulse from original SD Force pack and forged it together with the Sword Silhouette and that problem was solved. The Anti-Ship swords could been shortened
easily by cutting the middle part out. Tamiya Super Glue did the rest of the work.
The color scheme was no problem. The only thing that matters was that the original blue color had to be whitened before painting it red to prevent the red becoming too dark.

Do you like to modificate SD kits?
