I started a while back with some HG gundams and moved up to MG then to PG...
My latest build was a PG but I didn't paint it or sticker it and it just seems so sad!

I really want to be able to spend the time to paint all the pieces and make a super nice PG one
but work and school don't allow much time for that right now.

IF you build I'd love to see some of everyones creations even if they are just built up or halfway done
OR if you did the whole she-bang with them!

I've been building Gundam models for almost 30 years. My first Gunpla kit was a 1/100 scale RX-93 Nu Gundam from Char's Counterattack. That kit was before the days of MG, HG, or any of the other lines we currently have. Plus, it also required glue to assemble.

I'm working on a MG Ball ver. Ka right now to practice my hand painting. I also have 3 hg's, 2 rg's, and 3 mg's. And a MG Geara Doga in my backlog.

Gundam models are model kits depicting the vehicles and characters of the fictional Gundam universe by Bandai. These kits have become popular among mecha anime fans and model enthusiasts in Japan and in other nearby Asian countries since the 1980s. Gundam modeling spread in the 1990s with North America and Europe being exposed to Gundam through television, video and manga. Gundam models, as well as the hobby of assembling and painting them, is known in Japan as Gunpla (ガンプラ Ganpura?), a portmanteau of "Gundam plastic model", plastic being the most common material for the retail kits.

I have Gundam Death Sythe. I haven't assembled it yet. Too lazy.

I promised myself that I would assemble it when it's a rain day.

Yup. Still on step 4.

That's awesome! So you've had them around for a while! How many do you think you've been able to build in that time!? AND! How do you store them?

The backlog is pretty much where all of mine are sitting right now sadly. :[

This was my last build.. still havent gotten around to detailing it or painting or even applying the sticker, but it came with this super neat three metal piece contraption for allowing the eyes to light up green and the switch is built right into the head. Honestly my favorite part lol.

Not me, but my brother has some (he has 5 or 6, but he just left them in the box, never bothered to build them) but he did have the Red Zaku built.
