RPC's Gundam builds.

Recommended Posts

I couldn't resist the temptation of starting this so I just put the inner frame together, an amazing bit of kit with so many amazing details tucked away.

Might have to turn this into a general Gundam build thread as I snapped two more HG kits together this week. I will be snapping the RG Unicorn together next.

He is compared to these two, the RG Sazabi is the same size as a normal MG 1/100 kit. 

 

Added the bazooka from the RG Unicorn to give the GM a bit more fire power.

My Gundam stash is now 2 and 2 more arriving, mostly replacements for my MG that I sold off. Still have to build these 2 to properly build as well, it could be a summer of Gundam.....

Oh nice, like Nick I really like the Geara Doga. There was a super custom MG in one of the Japanese mags which looked fantastic.

It's a simple kit the HG but looks great.

I have seen quite a few nice custom Dogas, I will keep the colours similar to the original but add lots of surface details, vents hols hatches etc.

Slow start, working out how to add thrusters to the top of each calf and some fuel tanks to the backpack.

A simple but effective leg extension done by extending a peg and adding another polycap.

Needed to see what it looks like with some paint, so I did this.

Brown! How very Seventies.

I had a brown Ford Escort.

They look good though.

Ah, sorry, the laptop screen was dazzled by the light through the window.

Ahem, what a lovely shade of green those legs are.

I don't think I ever even drove a Mk3. Nice looker though, especially the top spec versions.
