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.

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.

Nice additions, I love the little thrusters in the back of the knees.

Mine was a 1970 1.6 GLX with the pinto engine.... Very cool....

Started snapping another kit together, the RG Unicorn.... So far the legs and feet along are one of the Gundam kits I have built, the number of parts, fit, colours ( I know it's all white but it's not...) and details are ready quite amazingly brilliant. It's one you really have to build and have in your hand to fully appreciate.

My Dad had the Mk3 1.6 GT with the sporty Pinto engine (90 BHP!!!). I was lucky enough to drive it when at home, it was a pretty quick motor!

Suffered from the common Pinto cam-shaft oil-feed issue...

 

Cheers, Alan.

The car I wish I never sold even with the oil leaks and leaking bake systems.... 

 

Really not had much hobby time at the moment, bloody DIY...... Did get the guy snapped together and I must say the has to be one of the best plastic model kits I have ever built!
