HGUC #164 MSA-003 Nemo Unicorn Desert Color Version


The HGUC MSA-003 Nemo Unicorn Desert Color Version is precisely that! It’s the updated design of the MSA-003 Nemo in Desert Deployment colors as seen in the Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn animated series. Anaheim originally developed the Nemo to support the limited number of Mobile Suits possessed by the AEUG during the Gryps War. Ten years later, the Earth Federation still had a large number of Nemo MS in operation. The HGUC MSA-003 Nemo Unicorn Desert Color Version features an alternate color pattern to repaint the recycled Mobile Suits.

Here is what comes along with the MSA-003 Nemo Unicorn Desert Color Version:

  • 90mm GM Rifle
  • BOWA·BR-S-85-C2 Beam Rifle
  • Shield
  • Beam Saber x2

Articulation –

The MSA-003 Nemo Unicorn Desert Color Version hosts many brilliant articulation points to allow more realistic and satisfying posing. The legs feature a swiveling thigh gimmick and double-jointed knees, perfect for achieving a convincing flying pose. The unique shoulder joint allows the MSA-003 Nemo Unicorn Desert Color Version to extend its arms much higher than other HGUC entries. There are three different sets of hands and a weapon holding hand for even more posing options! The build is simple enough for new builders and quick enough for some potential army-building. The only thing that’ll look better than one MSA-003 Nemo Unicorn Desert Color Version on your shelf is a whole bunch of them!

Weapons and Other Notable Attributes 

The Shield can be extended or retracted by selecting one of the two connection points for the top portion. The Shield can also attach to either forearm with the included adapter. The two Beam Saber Hilts can slide into the back skirt armor for storage, much better than the plug-type connection commonly used for GM Mobile Suits. The MSA-003 Nemo Unicorn Desert Color Version also includes the BOWA·BR-S-85-C2 Beam Rifle used by many Federation Suits.

Tips and Tricks –

By implementing the technique of Top Coating, you can do a great deal to help preserve the longevity of your models. This process will protect the original plastic of your model kit and prepare it for any additional modeling techniques to follow.

You can drastically improve your results by making the details pop on the HGUC #164 MSA-003 Nemo Unicorn Desert Color Version with Panel Lining. The simplest solution for this is Gundam Markers or Tamiya Panel Line Fluid. If you’re up to a challenge making panel wash is always a great option too! It is always recommended to Topcoat with clear gloss beforehand, as some of the products commonly used for Panel Lining will degrade the untreated plastics over time.

Another way to keep adding detail is by applying Stickers/Marking DecalsTop Coating before the application will help decals stick to the surface much better. Using Top Coat after application will help hide the seams on traditional sticker decals as well as waterslides. This additional step will also keep them from peeling over time. Using Decals is a great way to add an even greater level of detail to your scale models.
