    Lookin great so far! All my attempts at 3D modeling so far look like a crumpled up piece of paper (and that is before it is printed out :-D).
    Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing it with us.

    a few extra details

    thats no problem this model will be free for any one who wants it and if its a success then ill try to make more gundams as i feel why should we not have them when all we can get is the stuff from korea or japan and sometimes not all the times we cant get access to them so being as i love gundam this is what ill be building.
    any way i have added a few extra details..:twisted: :twisted: :-D

    ok still cant upload pics yet, i have finished the head and most of the back pack i will be doing a test build after its complete but befor i texture it, the model will be availble in pdo format and i will try to make instructions in pdf, obviosly it will mean delaying when its released but i hope it will be worth it. any one thats intersted just pm me and i will send it, once its completed, also i think i will do the sazabi next if i can it looks complicated from the blueprints but i will give it a bash..

    --The good thing with pdo files is you don't have to include instructions at all~ Just tell everyone to check corresponding surfaces ;)

    ok i have started on the trial build chest seems ok need some tweaks same with the waist the head needs a complete overhauland some of the deatil parts on the chest need some work aswell, i will continue building and fix things as i go. oh well i will keep at it, once i have completed the test build and done some corrections i will be doing textures on this model, which after that it will be ready for release, its gonna be free for members of this forum i will also try selling it on my web site. for some updated pics see my blog at bottom of my signature.

    What's the finished size going to be? I looked through the other related threads but didn't see any dimensions mentioned.
