I think my post was misunderstood - of course I'm going to cut them out! I'm just not sure what to do with them afterward. Do the instructions specify the particular nubs/parts between the joints I need to cut out? I'm afraid of cutting the wrong part. Thanks for answering my question anyway.

IMO the manual will tell you all the parts need to cut by really paying close attention to the pictures of the actual parts before cutting. Itís not that difficult considering so many people are able to pull it off . I myself is in the process of building my RG Justice Deactive (along with HG Aesculapius). It's a slow progress considering I'm so busy with work now (plus, it's Ramadhan. I need to do fasting and extensive praying at night).

Yep I definitely misunderstood

Im looking through the manual, the only part that looks specifies what to cut is the waist unit. Everything else (just arms and legs) is marked with a line and a small sentence.

I've built every standard released RG to date, so I can tell you it's really easy to notice what to cut just from looking at the actual part. As helpful as the manual is, the angle of the pictures sometimes make you miss nubs

I'm really busy with the army right now so I doubt I'll be able to finish my Justice quickly. Will try to start on it this weekend, though!

I see, thanks! The sentences that label the arms and legs don't say anything important, right?

I've watched it already. I just don't feel his reviews reflect the average person. I wanna hear from someone who bought the kit and is happy with their purchase. A "community" response... I guess? lol

I have yet to build mine, but according to other YT-reviews and people in a Gunpla-related Facebook-group, the Strike Ver RM is pretty amazing. Oh, and on Dalong.net it is the best rated kit out of the 5 GAT-X kits. Hope that helps

At least that's something lol. I'll have to pick it up for myself... I wish I could get the chance to paint my kits. So busy lately, I just don't have the time to seriously paint. Got like 30 kits to paint lol.

Sadly I'm having to wait on the RG GP01. Well I'm being loyal to my favorite site is all.

Edit: So yeah... I just put an order on for the Strike RM, MG Nu, MG Freedom, HG Nu, HG Bawoo(I had this back in 2004 but lost it so)

The green production suit. Kinda funny, I originally had the orange commander type(I think that's right), and painted it green. I bought it locally and didn't know there was a normal version.



I hope bandai makes mg chaos, gaia, abyss! Take my money already!! lol

I guess.. I look at pictures online but I only remember painting that kit with paint brush... I guess I'm getting too old lol.

Anyone build the MC High Grade gundooms? I wanna buy the nu ground type. As it look awesome but, I'm scared to order from any places I've found. I understand why they aren't trust worthy looking websites,(obvious copy's of bandai's property, regardless of the differences) but ordering from some fishy looking site, has it's obvious concerns.

Also anyone here play gundam breaker?

Check out Prime92's reviews of the Gundoom kits, they're not bad, but not my cup of tea (prefer the HGUC simple design over the Evolve styling). Check all of her Gundoom vids, might give you an idea where to get them if you are set on getting one. There's also ebay but that may be more expensive.

Not a huge fan of bootlegs either, but I admit they make great kits to cannibalize for customs and mods though XD

Nah I can't justify the 20% markup. I don't trust the sites I do find(reading lots of bad), so I'll just have to not have them :P.
I really like those designs. Need some work but, I like the feet and such. Ah well.

Speaking of which, any idea why Bandai hasn't done a HD HG GSD line like they did with SEED? I know no one cares for them, but I'm thinking of picking up a HG Gaia Gundam myself.

I hope they reproduce the Impulse soon at least. Everyone is back ordered. Maybe they will do RM or something...
