The laborious and maddening process of transforming the Unicorn Gundam to Destroy mode completed, the gallery now boasts double the number of pictures it had before. Hopefully the transformation is sufficiently well documented to give you an idea of each step, but of course feel free to ask questions in the comments.
I can say pretty confidently that short of posing the Unicorn in fight scenes with the Sinanju somewhere down the line, I will never put myself through this model's transformation again. I'll leave the specifics of my complaints to my final write-up of my thoughts on the kit, but long story short the transformation is a pretty big pain in the butt and the model on the whole sacrifices an awful lot to accommodate it. Anyhow, more on that to come.
