The last kit I'm entering for the BSC, but by no means the least.





After its completion alongside the Unicorn Gundam, the Banshee was stationed on Earth by the Augusta Research Lab and tested for atmospheric combat. Rather than that of a Unicorn, the Banshee's motif is that of a lion, illustrated with gold accents on the forehead, a golden collar to signify a lion's mane, and a much more elaborate horn/V-fin.
The Banshee's armor is all-black and its psychoframe emits a golden-orange glow when the NT-D is activated, giving it the nickname "psychoflame". Although the Banshee lacks the Unicorn's distinctive La+ System, its performance in atmospheric combat is vastly superior, presumably because of a significant reconfiguring of the suit's operating system to account for Earth's gravity and the atmosphere's frictional resistance.

Combat improvements were made according to Unicorn Gundam's battle data, which had been relayed to the Augusta Research Lab. However, the two Gundams have no major operating differences. Aside from lacking the Unicorn's La+ operating system, the Banshee's raw performance is equal to that of the Unicorn. In other words, any modification to the Banshee (i.e. atmospheric combat performance) could also be applied to the Unicorn, making both suits equal in ability.







That's it.... for now. :)

I honestly don't know if I'm going to paint the PF or not... there's a few problems being 1) I don't feel I'm advanced enough to install LED's, which would make all three of the models I'm doing for the BSC pop oh so much 2) while the color is a glaring defect from the Anime, and all other illustrated examples, I love the fact that it's still kind of see through, so it's making me not want to do anything to it 3) I've been toying with a deep black with a gold PF. I saw one with a fuscia PF... looked crazy but the finish was fantastic.

Also keep in mind that that thing glows when under UV light :)
