Good luck! I was thinking about doing something like that too. Anyway, the
PG gundam was very weak in terms of drawings to accompany the kit.
Disappointing. Issue #1 of Dengeki Hobby had a nice photo spread of all the
PG gundam parts and how they went together. You might find it useful. I
would love to see what you have done.
