So I got this and LOVE IT! It's really detailed with moveable and removable parts to give you the look you want. I'm going to try to find the Gundam model to build it so it can go with this. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

I renamed this thread to The Gundam Thread to talk about all things Gundams. Any fans out there of the models?

I got the Gundam itch and ordered the 1/60 Perfect Grade Strike Freedom Gundam! It arrives on Tuesday.

I used to build the models when I was in middle school! I always wanted a Custom Zero Gundam Perfect Grade but I was never sure if it took a lot of skill which I don't have! One day I hope someone produces a Custom Zero Statue!

Nice Thread! I have several PGs but have never found the time to build them. I have Zeta Gundam, Wing Zero Custom and Strike Rouge. I also have some Gundam resin kits but those are even harder and more time consuming. Are you going to paint yours?

Never heard of the Resin kits. What are they?

I'm just adding detailing painting.

I never saw any appeal in busts personally. Not when those MG and PG models are so perfectly accurate to the source mecha.

On another note, I just finished my new MG Gouf 2.0. This is one mean looking mobile suit!

On a side note, I just ordered the PG Gundam GP01 Zephyranthes. Drooled over the thing for 7 years and finally have the $216.00 to buy such a titan. Count on images soon. It's due to arrive Tuesday!

@ Lord Atmo: I'm pretty fond of the MK-II busts and would still love to get my hands on both and display 'em. All those head desktops I would want as well. But would be happy with a GP01, GP03 and MK-II AEUG. btw, congrats on that PG Zeph. Can't wait to see your photos!

One of these days I'll have to sit down and put one of my model kits together. I have the patience to draw Gundam fan art but not much when it comes to model kits. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

As for my Gundam fan art, majority are just a collection of sketches and doodles here and there. Don't really have any decent ones to put up yet. I'll let you know and put up a link when I get some decent stuff done. Thanks for inquiring!

That's a very nice looking model. What scale/grade is it?


Saw this listed on BBTS:

Robot Damashii Wing Gundam Zero (Endless Waltz)

It's a 1/100 scale and similar to a MG Master Grade Gundam. My next project will be the PG Zeta Gundam.

Five Star Stories! Not really Gundam but the mecha designers have worked on some Gundam. The skinny mechas remind me of Char's golden MS, 100 Shiki, from Zeta Gundam.

Used to buy this anime mag called Protoculture Addict and that's where I read more about Five Star. Have seen the models in Hobby Japan years before that though.

Nice work on the Winged Zero.

Oh, I thought DeathStar built that Winged Zero, heh. My bad: nice work on that Funneled-out Strike Freedom!
