HGUC 1/144 RGM-96X Jesta

An upgrade from the older Jegan model, another good looking UC's Mobile Suit, Jesta. The MS portrays a strong military image of elite naval seal on covert operations. That's when I choose to a hovercraft as prop in this post. Since I don't have have Base Jabber featured in the anime. The Jesta comes molded in its cool stealth colours which looks really cool even when I only lacquered it with matte coat. Close colour to how it appears in the anime. I had used third party water-slide decals made for this particular MS. This MS has an uniquely designed arm unit supports the shield from the backpack allowing Jesta to wield its weapons with both hands. In fact, the arms have wide range of articulations and the pose look natural when it holds the rifle with both hands.

Agree with you, pal, the Jesta represents a remarkable upgrade regarding the Jegan unit, which according to your description was its predecessor... Super cool armor design and color scheme, this is a very good example of what a great color selection can make for any mecha; it was worked in different nuances of grayish blue, with the strategic focal point in the visor, worked in a contrasting orange and it really stands out !!!... The set of decals applied here adds a lot of charm and a model like this, deserves that extra touch !!!... I love it, yeah !!!... =D

Thank you for supporting my statement and seriously, this is a cool mecha and I must admit that Gundam Unicorn series have some of the nicest design adopt from earlier U.C design. Jesta hit the right spot in terms of design and colour. It stands out despite of the stealth colour scheme. Glad you like the post : )
