One post after another, I am starting to find blogging interesting if not addictive.
Anyways, I kind of did this a couple of weeks ago already. Better Late than never I guess...
First, some pics of the box at four different angles.
Just fooling around before opening the box.
|Psyco Gundam tries to pushes the box but to no avail.|
|Emergency! Unknown Object detected!|
Alright now on to serious stuff, Upon opening the box we get...
|A fully assembled Dendrobium... or maybe not.|
When taken out of the Big box the two containers form two halves of one of two images.

|Image 2: Dendrobium (Lineart Side View)|
You'll probably notice the GP03 Stamen in one of the pics. Actually I assembled that a few days earlier
just to hold off the urge to straight-build this whole thing. Plus I didn't see any problems in painting the Stamen after assembly compared to the Orchis. A little pic of the stamen runners:
I also assembled the beam sabers out of the fear that they will be bent or have stress marks if they stay any longer in the box, along with the other parts.
|One beam saber blade is slightly bent as I suspected.|
|The ZZ Gundam gets a longer Hyper Beam Saber.|
So that's it for the unboxing of the HGUC 1/144 Dendrobium . I'll probably do some pre-assembling of the parts to determine which parts are going to be hidden during assembly in order to save some paint and time. I also need to find parts where the paint is most likely to be scraped off (mostly on moving parts)before I can start painting/detailing. Hopefully I can cover these things by tomorrow if my work schedule permits it.
