Samuel sits on a partially wrecked colony, in one of the bombed-out hangars. around him are parts scrounged up from the carcasses of previous mobile suits. in one pile, there lay a guncannon torso. in another, some feddie shields and some emptied guns. in the middle of the hangar, Samuel's main prize is found- some Zeonic prototype transforming mobile suit, partially wrecked from crashing into the colony.
He's been working on it for about 3 months at this point. all it needs is a shield, some more guns, and a fresh coat of paint.
