This kit was made last as I was gathering some leftover parts that I had built from my previous Unicorn Gundams and other kits. Don't ask me how I came up with all this armaments name and abilities, they just came out of my mind, just like that lol... This should be the most number parts being swapped/added to it... You could consider this as kit bashing, since I'm adding on so many different parts to it lol... And I promised to myself that this kit will be epic (because it's the Emperor we are talking about) and the perfect way to conclude my HMS project.
List of parts used for this kit:
- Unicorn Gundam OVA as the base
- Manipulating hands from Sinanju Stein
- Chest parts with Gold Mane, Orange Psycho Frame, Armed Armor DE & XC from Banshee Norn
- Chromed Golden Split Horn from Phenex
- Hyper Beam Javelin from Full Armor Unicorn Ver Ka
- Water decal sheet (chromed gold color) from Unicorn Banshee Awakening Mode Ver Ka
List of Tamiya Spray Paint used:
- TS-30 Silver Leaf (Holy Internal Frame)
- TS-14 Black (1st layer coating)
- TS-83 Metallic Silver (2nd layer coating, for selected armor parts)
- TS-84 Metallic Gold (2nd layer coating, for selected armor parts)
- TS-27 Matt White (2nd coating after priming, for armor parts)
- White Primer Surfacer (1st coating for priming, for armor parts)

I will be updating this post from time to time. So any latest pics I took will usually be added at the end of this post.
Click on 'Read More' to view more pics XD
|Hands from Sinanju Stein...|
|It's original ball joint is too small to fit into Unicorn's wrist part...|
|After some cutting and drilling, see any different? XD|
|And here's the outcome, very successful =D|
|Hyper Beam Javelin from Full Armor Unicorn Ver Ka...|
|Not so hard about this... Just drill a few holes, clean it up with hobby knife and there you have it lol...|
|To show that I did not cut anything away from Stein's hands lol...|
|That small hole in the Javelin handle part...|
|Unused parts from Unicorn Phenex kit.. One of my choice lol...|
|So which horns to use...? Shiny Gold Unicorn Horn, Titanium Finish Banshee Horn or Final Episode Banshee Horn..???|
|Leftover parts from Unicorn Banshee Titanium Finish...|
|Lots of leftover parts from Final Episode Banshee kit lol...|
*Update: Planning is completed, and the spare parts have been separated for spray painting...
*Updated 15 August 2014: Finally separated out the parts, more packs this time. I'm putting in more effort into spray painting them out of runners, just for this kit lol... And this is the first time I ever use a primer just for the parts that are meant to be white color... For now I need to experiment it out on a plastic spoon as I'm using a gray primer and see the outcome. I couldn't find the white primer spray, probably will need to find at other place. And also for the first time I bought a can of Metallic Gold spray paint, which I just realized that I needed a black spray paint to get the desired effect I want, so that's gotta wait too lol...
|Left: Matt White, Center: Gray Primer, Right: Metallic Gold|
*Updated 16 August 2014: I had tested the gray primer with Matt White applied on it. Looks kind of ok, but I will see how it will turns out again when I got the White Primer.. More experiments to come, I wanna try out how good is the Metallic Gold and some other colors to try them out lol...
|Gray primer applied|
|Matt White applied over the primer...|
|From left, TS-83 Metallic Silver, White Primer and TS-14 Black|
*Updated 6 September 2014: I had completed most of the parts before some of my critical paint color runs out... White Primer has ran out but it's ok I have no more parts for it lol... Silver Leaf & Black has ran out however so I will need to get some more of those, probably a few weeks later lol...
|Armor DE finally completed lol...|
|Applying the first layer of Black for them...|
|White priming the Armor XC and the Chest parts while waiting lol...|
|Applying the 2nd layer of Metallic Gold on them...|
|There we go XD|
|Let's pray that these will still works after spray painted lol...|
|Applying 2nd layer of Metallic Silver for the Javelin Staff... (1st layer is Black btw)|
|Completed most of the parts at least XD|
Spray painting will resume when I get more paints, and money =X

Finally I can conclude this last kit of my HMS project.. I had fun with this project, and it also enables me to try something new in each of the HMS kits I built and benefits the next one. The learning process is never ending, so I can just either maintain or keep on improving my skills lol... I will be working on my Darkness Mobile Suit project soon in the year end, and the first kit to be build will be announce soon lol...
