After much deliberation I've decided on of my entries will be the fantastic 1/100 Metal Gear REX by Kotobukiya. Been sitting on my shelf since release and I guess nows the time!

Can't wait to get home and crack this open...

Here's a start video. Sorry about the sound issues and shaky cam, did this with my Galaxy S5.

Did an inventory of the parts and gave the manual a quick look.

Just a small update guys. Been feeling a little under the weather so I only put in an hour or two last night.

Thanks! ;D
Yea it sure is. It felt like it took forever to get just the one leg assembled. Plus is that all that engineering pays off, a lot of the seam lines get hidden by cover panels. At first I was clipping out each piece and carefully cleaning up the nubs only to put it together and realize 90% of the nubs get hidden once the part is assembled. So I'm not being so particular now, once I have it all assembled I'll know what I have to clean up.

BIG jump guys, almost have the kit done! After I did this video I build the railgun, and I'll probably have the Radome done tonight or tomorrow morning.

All these moving parts are making me worry about paint.
