I was planning to build a proper Gundam for a long while. After much pottering around I decided on the Sinanju Stein, primarily because I like its design, it is a nice and beefy Master Grade kit, but also because I like spending hours on decals and the Ver. Ka. versions deliver these in boatloads. It being my first proper Gundam I overestimated my skills a bit and decided I would also do some custom details, metal effects, pearl effects and a fully painted inner frame. Needless to say this one took me a while, 3 months to be more precise.
I am quite satisfied by the result though, Bandai really makes amazing kits!
