1/48 Banshee Head Unboxing and Magazine Photos

Here's the unboxing of Bandai's latest head display model the 1/48 Banshee head display. This kit will work as a stand from the 1/144 Banshee Norn (or really any other kit with a peg type stand connector)



The magazine is really a 'bonus' that comes with the kit if you ask me.


 Hit the bump for the full kit!

 
The kit comes packed in this small cardboard box.


Instructions are printed in full color right inside of the magazine.


Assembly is pretty stratight forward. The head transformation should be very familir if you built any version of the MG Unicorn.


This was a neat page from Nomo Ken demostrating how to add LEDs to the inside of the kit




And finished

Here are the actual plates for the kit.


By comparison here are the plates from the 1/48 Unicorn head




And the side by side comparison.




It should be pretty clear that Banshee Head has quite a bit more plastic to it.



And here's something extra; this is the 'centerfold' from this issue of Hobby Japan.
