Hi all since everyone here is building pgsf, I'll just share what I'm working on. I guess this is gonna fit in the 95% completed category.

The colour theme is inspired/copied by Keita. I'm just too lazy not creative enough to think of another colour scheme.

a few things that I still need to do.

1. where in the world can i buy LR41 batteries for cheap? Dicksmith dont sell this size and watch shops wants 16 bucks for it.

2. More decals.

3. To spray the inner frame with gold paint. I'm stuck here bcos I'm wondering if I need to apply primer b4 spraying gold and not too sure which gold paint to use.

eBay is your best bet for batteries. Look for a local seller though.

I used Tamiya sprays. Looks great, easy to use. Either way, you shouldn't need to prime since it's the same color/shade.

Thanks Falldog.... i was really inspired to paint the inner after looking at your WIP. Your work looks sensational

Well this was a welcome surprise to come home to!

Busterbeam, all credit to you for a charismatic, inspiring, and downright electric OP. Thoroughly enjoyable reading which I can say with certainty I will re-read a number of times.

Unsurprisingly, this thread has had a lot of veiws in a short time. GB threads always seem to generate the most views. In particular when people of stature in the Gunpla blogosphere all post about it at the same time!

This is truly an exciting event and I'm proud to be able to offer the platform for the synergy to conduct through.

I literally just got home and not only am I tired but pretty incoherent and still a bit hungover from my night on the town with ASM.. (more on that later) After I've had a good night's sleep we'll see what we can do to propel this GB further and keep the momentum rapid.

If you're reading and would like to help spread the word, we'd love it if you could re-post about the Gauntlet on your :blogger: :wordpress: :fb: :twitter:

Here are the relevant blog posts to date:

This should be a pretty amazing experience! Really looking forward to seeing what happens next!!

IDK why that would be.. Maybe try clearing your cache? I just performed a small edit to rule 1, if you want to rewrite anything else let me know and I'll fix it up for you. :)

First off, I didn't post it in my joining the gb post but, Falldogy, your PGSF is amazing looking.  My initial idea had be black/red until I heard about and saw your beauty.  I read your follow up too on your blog, I agree quite wholeheartedly with your conclusions.

Also, Kman, really really nice decals, did you make them yourself?

I've decided on a theme and on a noun, I mean name.
