It's killing me, so I have to say something.

The word is "desert," not "dessert." If it was a "dessert diorama," you'd have your Gundams posing on top of hot fudge sundaes and I just could not stand for that. Mostly because there is no such thing as hot fudge sundaes here in Japan and I haven't had one in at least six years. I miss those.

Nice looking robot though, btw.

No man. That's impossible.
No hot fudge sundaes?!?

You sir, have a staggering business opportunity- what a niche market- not just for ex-pats, but as a unique cultural exchange.

A Gundam ice cream sundae parlor?
Who wouldn't go there?!?

Actually, there are Gundam Cafes in Tokyo. They can shape the cream on top of your coffee into the face of a Zaku or something. I suppose there may be some place in Tokyo that has hot fudge sundaes. I've never looked.

Do you have ANY idea how much more awesome this would be if it was all simulated ice cream and such?!?
It'd be trippy as hell and utterly unforgettable!

Honestly, I suggest repainting this to go full dessert-mode!
(Or is that "ala mode"?)

You could put some ground troops hiding behind Nilla Wafer shields...awww yeah.
Maybe have a single marichino cherry clutched in the Gundam's fist.

It's nice to see people still enjoying these older kits. You've done a good job with upgrading it. There are a lot of older kits from ZZ Gundam, for example, that still have yet to get re-made into HG kits. The Dreissen was fairly recently made into an HG kit at last, but I don't think the old desert Dwadge was ever re-kitted.
