The XXXG-01S Shenlong Gundam is one of the five G-Team Gundams constructed for use during Operation Meteor. Master O, one of the original scientists brought to OZ to develop their Mobile Suit army, created the XXXG-01S Shenlong Gundam at his home colony in the L5 Colony Cluster, the birthplace of the Mobile Suit’s eventual pilot, Chang Wufei. Of the Gundam units created to participate in Operation Meteor, the Shenlong Gundam is the most capable machine in close-quarters combat, reflecting its creator’s expertise in martial arts. The Shenlong Gundam features a specialized loadout of close-range weapons designed to take full advantage of the Mobile Suit’s abilities, only utilizing head-mounted Vulcan Cannons for ranged weapons. The Shenlong Gundam also operates the unique Dragon Fang system, which features a claw/flamethrower and can extend the Mobile Suit’s right arm for medium-range attacks.

Included alongside the HG Shenlong Gundam for accessories:

  • Beam Glaive
  • Shenlong Shield
  • Extension for Dragon Fang x2


Articulation
 –

The HG Shenlong Gundam borrows several components from the previously released HGAC #228 XXXG-01SR Gundam Sandrock, providing an array of small internal frame parts to recreate the Mobile Suit’s exposed frame sections. However, the model does not feature a complete internal construction, as Bandai used several hollow armor parts to design the HG Shenlong Gundam’s legs and torso. This model features double-jointed limbs and swiveling thighs, providing a wide range of motion to create dynamic poses.

Weapons and Other Notable Attributes 

The HG Shenlong Gundam includes the massive Beam Glaive as its primary weapon. This weapon features a single beam emitter at one end and comes with a unique Beam Effect! There is a bracket on the HG Shenlong Gundam’s backpack that the Beam Glaive attaches to when not in use. Builders can replicate the extended Dragon Fang by unfolding the additional jointed section from the Mobile Suit’s shoulder. Bandai provided two extensions to achieve the Dragon Fang’s maximum range.

Description

By implementing the technique of Top Coating, you can do a great deal to help preserve the longevity of your models. This process will protect the original plastic of your model kit and prepare it for any additional modeling techniques to follow.

You can drastically improve your results by making the details pop on the HGAC #242 XXXG-01S Shenlong Gundam with Panel Lining. The simplest solution for this is Gundam Markers or Tamiya Panel Line Fluid. Making your own panel wash is always a great option too! It is always recommended to Topcoat with clear gloss beforehand, as some of the products commonly used for Panel Lining will degrade the untreated plastics over time.

Another way to keep adding detail is by applying Stickers/Marking DecalsTop Coating before application will help decals stick to the surface much better. Using Top Coat after application will help hide the seams on traditional sticker decals as well as waterslides. This additional step will also keep them from peeling over time. Using Decals is a great way to add an even greater level of detail to your scale models.
