Bandai HGBF Burning Gundam with Mercury Lev / Rev Parts

HGBF Burning Gundam with Lev Parts

So, I'd been looking for the Mercury Rev Parts for both the Strike and the Nu Gundam, and thanks to a friend, I was able to get my hands on both of them. I ended up marveling at the idea of how a weapons system based on Swiss Army knives would be such an innovative thing for the Gundam Build Fighter series.

Anyway, here is my take on it, where the "standard" Mercury Rev (or Lev) parts are mounted on the Burning Gundam. Not sure if that makes it a good-looking but weaker retrofit, but at least it allows for more weapon options.

Update: Bandai HGUC Nu Gundam: Modified - Mobile Armor Mode + Shield Fighter

In the original kitbash, I basically had an HWS Nu Gundam with two shields, twelve funnels, and some pieces from my first Battle Arms set. However, as time went on, the real joke was that the design made my Nu practically immovable.

However, once I was able to acquire some Mercury Lev pieces, it opened up the mecha design.

I. Main Mecha
Do take note that the pieces used are from both the Strike and Nu Lev parts. There are so many more connector parts, and I suspect they will be very useful in the future.

II. Shield Fighter
The shield fighter is essentially the main body of the Battle Arms system, with two folding arms attached to the cannon/support piece that can attach to the backpack of the Nu. Needless to say, this Shield fighter can fully integrate into the Nu, which appeals to my Super Robot sensibilities.

I will most probably close further mods on this kit, so it can finally get properly painted.

Expansion: Bandai HGBF/HGUC 1/144 "Titan Assault" (RX-178 Mark-II) Gundam + HGBC Powered Arms Powereder

I'm a fan of waiting for better stuff to come in, and in this case, it was in the form of the HGBC 1/144 Powered Arms Powereder pack. Essentially, I attached this to the Titan Assault Gundam that I had before.
