    I have started building this model too. If I'm not mistaken, I have to print 69 pages all in all:cry: I have already printed the head part and I have to say it's quite intimidating to build due to the very small parts. It will definitely take me a couple of weeks or even months to build this as I'm also building a couple of other models:twisted:

    For me to have this printed it would cost me around $60.

    I have a like new Canon bjc5500 which isnt supported by XP. I dont like bands through my prints anyway.

    I got to Staples and print what I need there in spurts. Which is why my vanilla builds are slower than molasses. I'm so far behind. Also it's cheaper for me to buy pretty much any kit out there than to print it. But still I gotta have my own way and scan pretty much anything Maty Modelarz and trace over it with a vector program and then add the details I need with more clarity and pay to have it printed ... again.

    I have noticed some nice laser printers at Staples today for $300-500cdn... too bad the C M Y and K rollers are $100-125 each. Use the printer and then sell it when the cartridges run out for $100-150 then go buy a new one. It's cheaper than refills.

    So please exuse me from the possibility of ever building the EX-S soon. ;)

    Hee hee, I had a truly sick thought. I have an S-Gundam head I built (I believe it's 1/35 scale). What if I blew up all the parts to match the more detailed head and have a full 1/35 scale S-Gundam :D

    Here's a pic of the head, it still needs to be finished with a few details.
