    GP00 Conversion

    Hello Everyone
    I've been looking up and down for the GP00 Conversion Kit, if anyone has one or knows where to get one please let me know.
    I found one store online that might have it but it looks a little sketchy
    https://www.wholezone.top/rg-1144-rx...cast-p-87.html

    If anyone has built this resin kit maybe you could chime in, let me know if this is worth the effort.

    Anyway Thanks
    Alex

    Re: GP00 Conversion

    My friend justin aka justinius built one. I asked him his thoughts as i was looking at getting one. He said its a bit more difficult since the parts are super tiny. That link is definitely a recast of the original kit, but they don't list the workshop that recast it. Kind of a redflag for me. GK has one, its a bit more, but their resin quality is probably the best when it comes to recasts.

    Re: GP00 Conversion

    Hey Squee, so I'm a little confused. Are there two 1/144 resin kits for the GP00? It kind of looks like there is a kit that requires the RG GP01 and another one that is more of a statue of the GP00. Any idea on this?
    I don't mind paying more for something that I can actually move around.
    Thanks again

    The one you linked, and the one i linked are the same kit, but they're both recasts of the original which was made by MS-Build. So you're paying for better quality material and sharper detail.

    Whichever you buy, you will needs the RG GP01.

    Ah ok cool. Alright well I'll take your word for it and get the one from your link. The link I posted doesn't even let you use PayPal which is a red flag for me too.
    Cool alright appreciate the input

    Good luck! Best to check out some youtubes on how to work with resin if you haven't worked with it before. The dust is pretty toxic.
