At last.. one of my fave Gundam.. Gundam F91 and one of my fave pilot: Seabook Arno or Kincaid Nau (Kinkendo Nau), cool yet calm when doing battle.. a powerful newtype and has a great analysis skill in battle.
This is the "nendo" version of MG.. quite small in size but awesome at detail..
My first MG produced by SNRI (Strategic Naval Research Institute) and this is a multipurpose mobile suit. good at short range, middle range, and even long range with awesome mobility..
two revolutionary technologies are the main point of this gundam. After some anaheim products which have a Psycommu system. This gundam have a bio-computer system, which is really a "plus" for this MS, a direct link between the pilot with the MS which similar with Psycommu system except it's reversed, the positive way is newtype isn't needed to use bio-computer, which later used at XM-X1 Crossbone (a.k.a F97) too..
the second is Variable Speed Beam Rifle (VSBR). This is the most powerful type of beam because the user can adjust the beam output whenever he want a wider beam and powerful damage or more to focused high-speed shots to penetrate armor (like railgun principles)

Box art replica style
One VSBR used
Twin VSBR deployed and ready to fire
Another angle for Twin VSBR
Sword and Shield style..
F91 inspiration is from Greece Phalanx, so this is what Phalanx formation usually used
More Phalanx formation in ground
The most distinctive features of F91 are it's heat sinks.. There are lots of them.. And it's strange looking booster.. It's like a fan. Well enough about the gundam, now for the kit itself. It's actually awesome, but I really disappointed about the fingers joint.. it's pretty small and easy to break if not carefully handled.. And the non-PVC kit makes me afraid to use it articulation (*squeaky sounds). But it's still a good kit..
