OK, I will take the hint. I will try and have a scan of that too
tonight. It remind me a lot of the new Giant Robo. In fact, Dave So
(lurky) bought the HJ just because of that picture, and is in the
process of whipping up his own!!
As for the GS, I know that it's primary use is in space, but wha'sup w/
them skinny legs!
At the time of he design, it lookas as if they took piees of the most
popular Gundams of the time ad did a frankystein on it. If you look
very closely, you will see the bolts on his neck... Really, hey are
there, just look REAL close:P
If it weren't for the skinny legs, it would have gotten my ok.
Oh Well, can't do a thing unless we are asked to design it...........
Hum, that gives me an crazy idea...
What if I put up a page for everyone's own Gundam design? (Just opened
a can of worms.)
