hi there.
i have finished my KOBU(光武). this is very my first model except SD Gundam. :-)

the mechadesiner is YOKOI, same as Ma.k.

i admit too much decolation. but it may deserve for Sakura because they are musical actress in ordinary time!

original story is here

Nice!  I agree the decoration is a bit much, but it's somehow fitting for a pink KOBU.  :lol:

I think the katana can use more decoration at the grip, compared to the rest of the KOBU it seems a bit plain.  I guess it's going to be some SD for your next piece?

I think the nicest touch is the scale metal Katana. :)  Is it one of the "Mononofu" weapons? 
Also, I think I recognise the metal parts at the end of the silver exhaust, did you get them in Osaka?

It looks really nice, congrats!
The flowers on the back tank is too much but the rest works well for me.

I love it, the pink with the flowers actually tie together quite nicely for a pretty and somewhat classy looking mecha. Really nice work!

Ah, I have some of the Mononofu swords, I keep wanting to use them for 1/100 Gunpla. ^^  I think they suit the style of the Sakura Wars models better.  And I asked about the metal screws because I bought some myself in Osaka from a hardware store in DenDenMachi, but you're the first person I've seen use them on the internet.  I like some of the hardware parts they've set aside specially for model making, but haven't been there for a few months. ^^
Did you use any other parts from the same place?
