    A little Red River metallic paper and nobody would know the difference :twisted:

    Wow, cool! I want to order two of them for bookends!

    Gonna have to go check my piggy bank![​IMG]

    Seriously though, Building one completely out of Red River paper sounds like a great idea!
    Maybe a comparison photo shoot afterwards would be neat to see!

    Good point, Nezard.
    I don't know Gundam models.
    I'm not even sure of the spelling. Gundam, Gundham?
    I've never built any of them before but I think some of them look really cool, like this one.

    I think I found it. To me, he resembles this RX-79.

    That's the rx-79(g). It resembles the original gundam, the rx-78 but in actuality is one refitted for ground combat. Sorry for being such a nitpicker, just a die-hard gundam fan.

    That ground gundam looks better than the master grade kit. Is it available to buy anywhere?

    The ground attack Gundam was designed by June and was only available at Wonderfest either last year or the year before. I have never seen one for sale yet. :(

    The platinum Gundam is an RX-78. This is the original Gundam from the anime series. Masamune Washington designed and released a series of 1/120 scale models several years ago. They can be found here:

    They would be your best bet for a reasonable size model, otherwise you can join the search for the elusive Inner Brain kit :twisted:
