Haven't posted here in a while, but given that I nearly have all the girls I want with their initial modifications, it's time to see what else I can do.
First off, my main priority is securing a Tempesta - I've gone on about this, and I probably will until I get her. It'll take me a month, maybe a month and a half at best, but I do see me getting her. I was thinking of getting her the Banshee Destroy High Grade kit, but seeing as that claw doesn't move and the plastic's a solid yellow instead of the MG's clear orange, mods for her are going to take a little bit of thinking.
Now onto the girls sitting next to me...
As much as I love the look of the Neutron Launcher (trademark) on Natsume, there's as much of a charm if not more for her without it. I honestly have no real idea how to mod her, especially since the Schmetterling parts close up most of the plugs for additional equipment. Maybe if I can get another one of those special braces like the one Arnval Mk.2 (and I think all MMS 3rds) come from, I can work something nice.
Lynette, being the lucky girl that got the most work put into her - even me getting a rivet punch and trying to figure out how to use it - is probably going to be the last one to get new modifications. I like Reborns Lynette, she looks nice the way she is, and both Charlotte and Natsume look very bare compared to her.
I have however, thought of giving her either parts from the 00 Raiser or 00 QAN[T] - Lynette has seemingly taken over the role of Funnel Girl, and pulls off the look quite well. I plan to put the Twin Drives on the sides of the wing binders - the backpack can support it, but that's not the issue. I'd need two QAN[T]s to pull off the look correctly, and let's face it, that's a lot of cash (60 bucks?). Yet, I honestly think if I get the 00 Raiser, it's better off going to Charlotte for that duality theme.
An alternative - if I can get them - are either Hi-Nu Gundam to replace or supplement the Reborns wings, or go complete overkill and get a Kshatriya, but that may cause weight issues.
Charlotte on the other hand I know EXACTLY what I want to do with her, and surprise! It's not a Gunpla I want for her! I was looking for possible alternatives to claws for Juliette (the Tempesta) when I came across the M.S.G. weapon sets - and then found they went to this robot line called Frame Arms. And one in particular caught our fancy.
Being the melee fighter of our little family - even more so than the Gundams, go figure, Charlotte fell in love with this Hresvelgr instantly, and I can't say I blame her. Scythes, the look, the blue and white... And furthermore, I read that these things are not that expensive and are 14.5 centimeters, right in the same ballpark as the Shinki's 15. If anyone's used Frame Arms before, do you know if the inner frame uses holes for the legs or arms that are Shinki-sized?
