Welcome to the Gundam Group Build at SMA!

Scope:
This group build covers any mobile suit, vehicle, ship, even character, which can be found in any of the official Gundam series/movies/universes. The kit may be new in box, or partially built up.

Timeline:
September 1 start date with a completion goal of January 31st.

Point:
The goal of this group build is to bring together the Gunpla fans here at SMA and give them an opportunity to highlight the unique kits and modeling techniques/processes that they encompass.

Prizes:
At this time there is nothing to win, other than some great camaraderie and the right to have GB banner in your sig (see below). We may look at naming a "Best of" for fun and to give someone bragging rights.

Disclaimer: all the above subject to change if there is sufficient feedback from the group to warrant.

Resources:
mahq.net A good repository of Mobile Suite information including specs, technology, weapons, place in the story lines etc.
Zeta Gundam on YouTube Considered by many as the most popular series, presented (legally) in its entirety on YouTube by AnimeChannel.
HobbyWave.com Comprehensive selection of Bandai Gundam kits (please note: SMA sponsor Elm City Hobbies does occasional orders from the same distributor so please give him preference when shopping).
Plamo videos on YouTube (Sleepylafiel) Many Plamo episodes are of Bandai Gundam kit builds.


Q&A/FAQ:

How do I participate?

Start your own thread for your build and update it as frequently as you can reasonably manage. We'll try to keep a summary list of who is doing what in this or another sticky linking out the the individual build threads.


Who is coordinating this Group Build?

Sunsanvil and Grendels are co-chairing this GB.


I'm new to Gundam. Is such-and-such from the Gundam universe?

Ask Sunsanvil.


I have a question not answered here.

Ask Sunsanvil or Grendels

Okay,
so if you have seen my "Iron Clad" build you might be a little familiar with my unconventional concepts.
Would it bother people here if I built a Gundam kit NOT as a Gundam?
;) ;D ;D

Thanx....I have something in mind....I have been thinking about it for a while now.
It may be too obvious though, but I will probably still do it. :)

A couple people wanted us to broaden the scope to include mecha, ships, and more from all sorts of different fictions, but that wouldn't really be a group build...be more like, well, the sci-fi forum we already have here at SMA. :)

In the interest of keeping it a "Gundam" group build with the broadest scope possible we settled on not just Gundams, not just mobile suits, but ANYTHING as long as it is found in, or I'll even say plausibly from, ANY of the numerous official shows/universes/manga (which makes for a metric butt load of possibilities).

If you have a specific project you are not sure fits in the above, PM me and we'll figure it out.

I have the new MG Epyon, but the timing for the GB is all wrong for me.

The timing is wrong. The time frame is entirely during uni.
