1/114 = beginner stuff, built in less than 2 hours tops
1/100(MG) = intermediate to fairly complex, can take you from one night to more than a month depending on detail work
1/60(PG) = PRO status, you must know what you're getting yourself into

there are alot of sites posted on this thread for modelkits and tutorials on how to make your kit look pro, also i remember posting a site for custom decals for specific kits.

and Yom, cool

anything thats a 1/100 scale would be good.

and for snapping of the parts, use a small cutting plier or ever an exacto knife.

cant really pick out a model for you but i'll give you some sites

www.gundamstoreandmore.com/gundam.html
www.hobbywave.com/


and correction on the 1/100 scales. there are 2 types. Master Grades(MG) and High Grades(HG)

high grades are the less complex versions. Master Grades are the ones that need heavy work on. and they have an inner frame and sometimes require screws

I build models
they ain't pro
I don't even do much to it
like adding details
except a few decals
but I usually get MG's
I might pick up a PG grade one day

I'm getting lazy now
been messing with gundams since I was a kid

Do you mean decals as in the stickers that come with the Gundam? If you are, everyone pretty much puts those on and it doesn't take much effort. :\
