You can't really have a plastic model for the white version of Ikaruga's titular shoot'em up ship without having its black counterpart, which is why Kotobukiya is planning to release an alternate version of the striking 1/144th scale kit in Japan this October. Preorders are already open!

Meanwhile, the white mode of the craft kit is already out -- past the post break, along with more photos of the black ship, you can watch a video of Youtube user AlvarezAzel putting his together. Accoding to the clip's description, he spent around 40 hours on this project. O_O
