God Damn Gundam

Let's talk Gundam.

I must confess, other than a bunch of cool robots (which I think are more mechanical suits than autonomous beings), I am not entirely sure what Gundam is, aside from a fictional universe that comes from the incredibly creative minds of the Japanese. 

I've never seen a Gundam themed show, movie, comic, novel, role playing game, or anything of the sort (Tho Google insists they exist, so they are out there... somewhere). However every single model shop I have ever been in has a large selection of Gundam models to choose from, so clearly somewhere out there is a very strong fandom for Gundam.

For me its just a bunch of cool robots.  As such, and being a kid at heart, I have bought many sets over the past few years, and last week I decided to built one of them.  Naturally it ended up in front of my camera.  So I give you:  The RX-87 model from the Gundam Universe... whatever that is.

(It just goes to show you don't have to be a major fan of a genre to appreciate the parts that interest you... go explore new things today.) 

While we're at it, here is a behind the scenes shot, just to prove this was made in my studio and not yours.
