ZGMF-X42S Destiny Gundam (Without Anti Ship sword ) . Now I understand why I didn't find a lot of people who have tried to build this unit... It has some really insane shape!! This has been a really, really, hard build for my weird skill in "real" model, so hard that I couldn't build it entirely... but, all the same I post it, because it's starting to bore me x)... I think I overestimated my building skill. . A little bit of history on this model first, The Destiny Gundam is an unit appearing in the Gundam Seed Destiny Anime. It' a really multi-purpose unit, which could easily ensure close fighting and long range fighting. The concetp of this MS is to gather all the Stike Gundam packs into one unit. That's why we could find a big anti ship sword, a long range High energy Beam Cannon, and a wings system. This wing system, called "Wings of light", allow very high speed movements when there are full activated. The unit is also equiped with two Beam boomerangs, and two palm beam cannon, mounted on each hand. To finish the Destiny use an Hyper Deuterion Reactor, and has a Neutron Jammer Canceller. The Pilot is Shinn Asuka.
Before anything else, I have some things to tell about this build :
- This model does not have Anti Sword, I should admit that I just can't build the sword, I try several designs but no way, It's ugly and too far away the original model. I'm not ashamed to admit this, because it's reality :P.
- I try to catch as much details as I can, I miss a lot, but there are some things that lego doesn't allow unfortunately...
-I think that I succeed to catch the body/Shield/Rifle/Backpack like I wanted to, but the wings, no way xD. But it looks to , and I suppose that is the essential...
-It's my second build using LDD.
-The frame used on this model is Mithryl Dlarix frame, a little bit modificated, of course. You can find it here : http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/273999. Check his stuff, by the same occasion!
Now enjoy, and sorry if I made you read all this text :P

Firing High Energy Long Range Beam Cannon. As you could notice, I'm forced to put an additionnal part to the Cannon to hide a "gap". I'm not happy with this but it's the only way I found to allow the cannon a complete rotation.

Ok here it's, Please, rate and comment, I really need your feedback and helpful advices, thanks in advance.
To finish : due to Holyday/Travel/not a home I should ( and I need to) take a break in
building, When I will come back (one month and a half I think) I want to keep building
"real" model, to get more skill and could build my home design ones next. For my future builds I was thinking to the Mobius Zero, to change a bit :P. But if you have idea for me, it's welcome.
