That's fair enough, can't wait till I get my next dose of gunpla but I've still got gundam Alex sat there in her armour to paint up.

Nope, I need to, but it's going to have to wait till I get my new phone upgrade in October.

I'm currently building the RG Sinanju. Very, very slowly.

Anyway, since I'm going to college in...two weeks, any tips for transporting Gunpla?

I kept my Gundam boxes and the sprues everything was cut out of, so I dropped my dudes in those boxes and transported them like that when I moved to my apartment. Probably not the most effective way for you though

Probably not, yeah. I did do that once, when I made an HG Schwarzritter for a friend, but it seemed to...weaken it a bit? And besides, some of my kits have parts that I'd be worried about getting bent or broken, or the plastic getting scratched...

Speaking from lots of experience moving figures, it's gonna be a pain to move them anywhere. And with the model kits, it's dang hard to not do some sort of tiny damage in trying to transport them safely

Ah this problem, I've moved twice and resort to putting packing like bubble wrap around the model on its box. It's not as good as when I used to do warhammer 40'000 and the carry case they came out with with the foam inserts.

That is one fine looking mobile suit...though for nostalgic sake, I still prefer the Sazabi :P (and then the Nightingale on top of that, though the Hi-Nu Gundam is still the best from that version of Char's Counterattack.)

I do like the Hi-Nu (particularly the recent redesign), but I do not like the Nightingale. The Sazabi is pretty nice though, I hope I can get the RG sometime.

I can understand not liking the nightingale, it's an aquired taste :lol: I did try and seek out the mg version a few years back but it was quite expensive, like a lot expensive.

Just when I thought I was out, I've been pulled back in :-(

My friend started watching Zeta Gundam, and after pointing him in the direction of several movies and series I'm now watching Iron Blooded Orphans season 2, rewatching Wing, and itching to get my hands on master grades.

I've been clean since I picked up the MP V2 18 months ago. :BOOM:

:lol: welcome back to the fold Memphis ;-) I need to organise my list on what to after Alex...do I continue the theme and get Tristan? Or do I go back and get Victory to keep V2 company? Or do I save up and try rg...or ignore all that and track down God Gundam and Master Gundam ;-)
