    Ok, so I am officially got bitten by the Gundam's bug and drop few hundreds of bucks on the Tief Sturmer, Hong Kong version of the Gundam Deep Striker based on a Gundam novel. The kit cost an arm and a leg, but where else can I get a limited kit. I paid $467 w/shipping for it and consider the OMP is $350 at it released and everybody charging well over 100 bucks to ship it. The kit wasn't jacked up much at all. So, it was good! It has about 1800 pieces so I feel a bit intimidated, mostly because of the 40(?) LEDs and required 53 batteries to power them. That going to be extra 100+ bucks I will have to spend if I want to see it in all its glory. For now, I am just going to admire the box art, it is hands down the best model kit box art I have seen yet.

    goodduck forgot to mention that this beast weights in at around 10 lbs in the box. The overall height, not including the stand, will be just over 22 inches. The over all length of the kit will be 34 inches. The finished model does really look like the box art! The manual is massive, and color coded!

    @goodduck That is quite the Gundam! I am curious to see how this will turn out. I wish you the best of luck with it.

    Don't stay up late waiting to see this done. :D I got few more MG and couple of PG kits lining up waiting to build.

    I'd consider building a power supply to plug into the unit to avoid batteries, or allow the switching between the two. :)

    Actually, it should read Tief Sturmer, :D Sorry about that :D I am not touching anything that I have to plug in the wall. I don't trust myself that much.

    Another reason I wish we lived closer. They are so easy to build, and you can make them very small. ;)
