Burning Gundam by Bandai

5.0/5 rating (1 votes)


Gundam_1a.JPGCatzilla versus the Burning Gundam model treat : )Believe it or not this model represents my first foray into the world of Gundam models.  As a kid I was always a fan of car models and snap together kits.  Gundam didn't exist at that time.  Now I get to be a kid again and enjoy the paint, knife, scissors, markers, and plastic (no glue required).  I also found an extra pair of precision tweezers (not pictured )handy.

Yep, I did break down for the New Years and try what the rest of the world has already discovered.  Gundams are fun, relatively cheap, hours of fun, and most importantly poseable.

Gundam Model Overview

The kit took about 6 hours to cut, fit, and detail.  I chose to detail the work with a minimum of tools (mostly markers) and without paint guns or filler putty.  My thoughts were that kids would be able to reproduce and even excel on my novice work.  I'd love to see some pictures of this kit built by another fan.

Above is the Burning Gundam Model kit. Fish the cat versus the cellophane : )

I found these small manicure scissors particularly handy to get parts off the sprues.  Toe nail clippers provided a good close cut.  I would also recommend flush cut pliers.

Panel lines were first drawn in in pencil, but I found them to be too faint.  My handy Buck knife was used to cut off the extra plastic "flash".

As you can see above, all parts use a bendy and smooth nylon that press fits into joints.  Arms, fists, knees, and most joints use these connectors.

Pre panel line parts are above.  The headless guy lost his balance in the last shot : ) .

Now the tinsel on the tree.  My trusty marker was slopped onto the cracks then I used a cotton cloth to wipe the excess ink off.

Add a translucent saber or two and a plane and viola!

Above is the finalized Burning Gundam Model at your service.  The kit was purchased for about $25 and cost about 6 hours of labor....I got a superb return-- FUN and Enjoyment!
