It's a tank Jim but not as we know it.
« on: June 03, 2017, 10:26:51 AM »
Bandai 1/144 Guntank. It's the version from the prequel to the original Gundam series called Origin. It shits me how prequels these days always have more tech than the original. This thing is a mass produced unit that is way more tricky than the original Guntank which was supposed to be a prototype. The pose looks a bit gumby like thanks to the one piece wheels and track set up Bandai chose to use but if you look at it from the front or the other side it's not too bad (I hope)  :)














After looking at the pics it needed a little extra so was able to find some 1/35 40mm cases (which when scaled out are about the right size) and added them.
