Gundam modelling has always impressed me for some reason. This is a really cool thread. It’s insane how articulate that these model kits have gotten too! Shame I never got into the shows...

As Manimal has proved I think, it's never too late. He only got into Gundam like he did because of quarantine basically.

Will review stories upon request. My latest arc: http://goo.gl/KYgsfF

Yes it's never too late for any series!

Gundam kits have come a long way. I like to build the 90's kits and I always buy them when they come up. But they are very primitive compared to what we have now.

This is the No Grade Sandrock kit from 1995. In the pictures we have his out of box appearance with no paint or stickers and then my finished one that I hand painted. Although it has many imperfections it was very fun and rewarding to do. The only sticker I used was for the eyes.

I'm trying videos now :ohmy:

Here is my first one for the Dauzehn. A 1987 model kit from Bandai.

wasn't a bad watch, with a pleasant to listen to voice :)
also I didn't know that sponge sandpaper was a thing, so that's something I learned.

Some of my recent videos. I've had a new one every week so far. I'm hoping to get better the more I do. I'm really enjoying making these.
