The next project will be my very first Master Grade model- The RX-78GP03S “Stamen”.
Built this Gundam back around 2001. Bought it in Chinatown’s Elizabeth Center (Gundam Heaven there) before moving out of NYC. This model took me only overnight to complete and the result is what you see above. I couldn’t care less about nub marks, panel lines, and all that; the ideas never crossed my mind. I was having a blast just snapping this thing together.
First time building a Gunpla of this caliber. Gradually figured out how to apply the decals after screwing up a couple. V-fin broke (it’s so thin!) after a few months. Still love this model though. It was my very first MG. I didn’t have a clue as to what this Gundam is and I just bought it for its technical aesthetics compared to everything else around it.
I’ve come a long way in building Gunpla since then. Now I can finally start on my very first MG… again.
