This Lobster Shell Sazabi model looks as cool as the real thing


Who needs Gunpla when you have lobsters?

Move aside, plastic. There's a new material in town that can be used to make Gundam models and it can be obtained from a delicious delicacy.

Instead of hunting down a Gunpla kit, Niconico User Nurezokin's younger brother decided to build Char Aznable's Sazabi from Char's Counterattack out of boiled lobster shells. Using a model kit as a reference, the guy managed to carve out each part into the key pieces that make up the Red Comet's final machine.

Since the finished product came out nicely, I'm hoping that this isn't the last that we hear from Nurezokin's sibling. The best part about his project is that he'll get to have a great meal before he tackles his next robot. If he continues to create more red units from the Gundam franchise, then his building skills will become three times faster.
