Anyone know what a gundam is
« on: March 28, 2020, 09:36:45 PM »

Hi all, as a little light relief from the Cutty Sark I wanted to build something I've never done before, has anyone built a robot before.
I've ordered a gundam from bandai (the last of their kits I built was the Pendle princess and the rolls Royce balloon car) (both amazing kits) sadly no longer produced.

If this kit is any where near as good as those kits were it will be great.
I intending to do it (as I love all things old and rusty) neglected in a field somewhere.
Looking forward to its arrival.

Can be a variety of robot styles depending on the timeline.

My brother likes the gundam models, I’ve not been one for it personally, to much Japanese anime for my taste.. that said my eldest son recently took up warhammer 40k, which took me back to my early teenage years when I did it with a few mates, I’ve been enjoying “helping” ( haha more like doing for him) his models.. here’s one we’re near finishing...

I had to order some Vallejo paints today and noticed that they sell colours listed as Gundam.  Never heard of them before but they look cool

Well it was supposed to be delivered by the 6 of April but now it's the 30th ( I suppose it's down to recent events)
