I got the standard GM, Guncannon, and Gundam F-91 in a nice little bundle deal. I just need the Guntank and I'll have the team :) For a non-grade it's not a bad little kit. Only problem is the off-white color of the frame makes it tricky to hide blemishes. Also some of the nub placements are done well to hide them, but the are put on weird angles that make it hard to sand of x-acto knife them away.

So far so good man. This might be a good kit for you to practice seam line removal on.

Good call on the seam removal...Need to get me some plastic cement (all I got is rubber). Here's pics of the product so far...

I love the designs from F91 and that RGM is a great example. Sucks it's so old, but man does it still look good.

Agreed...I felt like they had the simplicity of your standard GMs but added the more aggressive armor and lines of the Gundams. As for age despite being sealed still, the parts actually felt more rigid than usual which made removing nubs cleanly a pain. I actually broke the visor in half trying to set it in the helmet. Had to do a little touch up with light glue and a marker to hide the break. Definitely going to try the seam removal on this one.

Quick question: Best recommended grit for the sandpaper to get rid of seam lines without needing to paint???

You'll have to go progressive, from 600-grit all the way to 2000-grit. After that, you can use some polishing compounds to return the shine or get one of those nail polishing sticks.

Can I get a name change on this thread to Gundam F91 WIPs... I'll just post all my models under this thread to keep it simple... that being said here's the Guncannon :)

Moving right along I'm starting my build of the actual Gundam F91 (Guntank is in the mail). The parts are currently drying after a cleaning but I was very surprised to see how much color separation there was compared to the RGM and Guncannon... Think they may be another nice little surprise like the Vigna Zirah.

Pretty smooth build so far... the seam lines will need some work but all the little gimmicks are working nicely

Man, the F91 sure has some big feet on that version.

Loved this build... I definitely want to work on the seem lines and hit it with a nice paint job.

I mowed through the Guntank build... Really enjoy the conversion gimmick. My only question is are 1/100 guntanks this small? I says 1/100 on the box but damn is it small compared to the F91

It has a smaller rifle as well but I had to put that big sucker on it... I just need to hit it with a paint job to really make it pop.

Here's one of Team F91...seriously the Guntank just feels small. Just waiting on my plastic cement order so I can start working on seam lines
