    Thanks man! I proly won't finish the funnels until next weekend. I have to go on a short road trip to enlist in the air force this week. They said that I would most likely have until December before i left for Texas, so thats time for one more project. I wonder what it will be? Suggestions?

    Hey Vortex, thanks for the motivation. I find that the final stretch is the most fun, but requires the most concentration and effort to stay focused.

    Both of these models are totally free so to be honest there are about twenty places to download them each. A quick Google search will provide links for both. I don't want to seem unhelpful but i kinda have a thing about posting links in a thread. A note on the Hi-Nu though, most places will show a pic of June's model, but their downloads are all for One Piece's model.

    Ok, i finished funnels 4-6, time for 1-3. I really like this model, but even on fun models, repeating steps causes me to lose interest fast, so doing the other funnel fin is going to take a few days. I was looking at the head and i don't know how im going to put this thing together. I may cut out all the tabs and butt joint everything with printer paper. Any tips would be helpful, thanks.

    On really small parts I tend to ommit tabs myself. On most of them too samll for even the paper strip method I jsut apply glue to the edge and butt join them directly.

    I wish I could give more advice on the head but I never printed this one out since I got a copy of June's model last year.

    Hate me? Well you'll want to kill me when I say I also have his ZZ Gundam :p I have many other rare kits but they cost so much I scan em and not cut up the originals.

    Well I have people who know people in Japan so after the chain of purchase is all done tack an x-tra $50 to $100 on anything :( I only go through those connections when I really really want something that I can't find by my normal means :p I would've taken Qess up on the offer he made here on the forums but I don't have the cash this time around :( I was wanting to get the Z Gundam and Gundam Mk2 this year. I chose to pre-order the Masterpiece Beta Fighter instead.

    You think the Hi Nu is partsy, jus wait till you dive into the Ex-S Gundam :p

    Oh by the way good luck with the Air Force :D My brother in law is in and his 1st duty station was Japan :D Man I was jealous.

    Where did you get a red version?


    Nice work SEBRET. BTW why does the Gundam have massive tubes protruding from the back (the ones that say New Generation MS)?

    Hey Robot, the canon says they are fuel pods, and i don't know of any other explanations. I never learned that much about the Gundam series' when i was younger, but i picked alot up from others talking and what i come across online. In fact I knew nothing about the Nu gundam family until i started this model and did a little research.

    I don't know about saint, :rolleyes:

    I just figured that since it's my first gundam that i was just full of beginners energy and hadn't had the chance to get fed up with it.

    Hmm...

    I vote Bumblebee because you are already almost finished building a Gundam (meaning you don't need another one). Plus, I have no idea what the third thing is supposed to be.
