Gundam MSN-06S Sinanju

One of favorite Gundam design is MSN-06S Sinanju. The model appear in Universal Century OVA Unicorn. The model with Chinese armour influence look best in this design. The red, black and gold colour is memorable. The mecha was designed by Hajime Katoki. Sinanju was operated by Neo Zeon in Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn movie. Here my photo from the expo, and the best photo from the web.

Master Grade Sinanju scale 1/100

High Grade Sinanju Gunpla 1/144


Nice model photography by Sunrise

a similar design is MSN-04 Sazabi which is the same reddish as Sinanju, both are extremely cool!
