From the modeler…
Kit used: 1/144 Barbatos, with koto. msg parts.
A shinobi inspired design. The main objective of the design is to make it look agile and stealth, thus the reduction of the original armor and chosen color scheme. Melee weapons suggest a close quarter and quiet combat. Additional thruster on the back for quick maneuvering allowing it to quickly enter and exit battle grounds performing hit and run operation discretely. The name “ryuu no kage” is a direct translation of ‘shadow dragon’ and the general concept for the aesthetic of the kit. The modified v-fin resembles the horn, overlapping armor as its scale, mounted katana on the back look like its wings.
