YOO, who here has bought one of those Gundam model kits? Maan, those are so stressful to make, but once it's complete, you feel so accomplished.

Discuss.

I got into them back in 99-2000 I did a few but not too serious. I did alot of the smaller scale ones but one thing I regret is not buying the detail markers. Yea you do feel accomplished but when you go online and actually see a fully done up perfect grade gundam done it makes you want to go and buy one.

Heres a pic of my old ones just sitting in their boxes. I always wanted to get a display case for them but I got out of it.


On a lighter note a friend of mine and I were talking about putting together a perfect grade kit not too long ago. I'd like to see how good I can do on it. Probably get something from the newer GUNDAM 00 series. Which I recommend you watch pretty good series.

thats been sanded, cemented/glued, sanded again, airbrushed, painted, decaled. probably even modded some parts.

and there isnt any perfect grade from the 00 series yet.

and the professionals barely use markers. they liquid lined them. they took paint, mixed in a shit load of thinner and dripped it on the lines let it spread down the line and wiped the excess of the sides.

i prefer the clean look, no paint, no mods, just clean work with decals.

Anyone else down? Can we get this started by the first of next month? So we give everyone time to buy one. And it doesn't matter what scale or series. Cool?

When I was younger I built like one gundam model kit but my real passion however was zoids. I built my first one when I was about 11/12 I believe I might have even been 13 and I stopped when I was like 15 because they were generally taking too much time and I outgrew them. Now I'm missing them like crazy, this thread invokes all sorts of nostalgia within me.

When I got this weird baby gundam I was so excited becuase I've been saving up for weeks until I actually bought it and opened it up and you needed to paint it, and I was like sad.

But before a had a Death Scythe Hell about 7'' or something.

I used to build these things when I was in the 5th grade. I haven't seen them around since. I wouldn't mind getting back into it, where can I cop some models? Still Toys R Us, or what?
