Vintage Gundam Kit Converted to Statue Diorama!

We love using snap-fit model kits for dioramas, and this display at the recent Buildcon Gunpla event caught our eye: builder Benson Chou took a vintage gundam kit and repurposed it as an H0-scale diorama depicting an alternate future. He walks us through his paint process and tricks he used to make the plastic model look like an aged statue.

  1. this is so cool. I never would have guessed that Gunpla(ガンプラ) was a thing here is US. Next time, when the opportunity arises, I would like to visit and see this in person. I grow-up watching original Gundam anime on TV, built many of the original Gundam like RX-78 and such. I am still looking for WhiteBase model kit.
