The gaplant was built by a friend of mine over the course of 5 years (in that time, he now has 2 daughters, his doctorate degree in mechanical engineering, and a host of other things) But he's a damn good builder. The only info I have on the gaplant is here: http://orx005.blogspot.com/ Actually, it's been sitting in my workshop for the past year or so as he's been working on it off and on at my place.

Now the resin figure kit there is built by this fellow: http://godgundam.com/2011/03/raira-ria-soreru-progress/ named Raira Ria Soreru

well, yeah... the beam saber handles of the ReZEL really are laughably small XD
but what do you think about it in general? personally i really love it! it looks awesome, was a fun build and articulation is great, too. only the ankles are pretty weak.

i like the kit, looks great, just finished panel lining it, doesnt really need .. panel lining to begin with, imo.

the transformation part is a bit annoying, the binders on the back have troubles going all the way down for me, other than that it's a nice kit though, grips weapons all right, looks great both in MS and MA mode.

and yeah, the Beam sabres are .. too small, think im going to use my leftover sabers from my first 1/100 force impulse and just repaint them, maybe shorten them just a tad bit aswell.

it's a really simple and nice transformable kit tbh.

Pros: Easy to build, cheap, looks great with little to no panel lining, weapons are solid, shield fits nice, MA mode is solid

Cons: small sabres, it's a tad bit loose (mainly the shoulder joints) and the crotch part where the legs connect is way too firm imo, i have to use my cutter to open the parts connecting the legs to the crotch without breaking them.

Transforming it can be a tad bit tricky.

Overall i'd give this kit 7/10

for a grunt suit its definitely a VERY awesome model^^ they could have easily gotten away with a simpler model for this.
also, i havent transformed my ReZEL even once so far. mainly because i think its waverider mode is freaking ugly XD it always looks like a box with wings and boosters to me :P

no, i have the regular version. what made you think i have the command version? :O
im usually only interested in those units that are actually piloted by the heroes or important pilots of the show. which is why the ReZEL is pissing me off a little, too... in the OVA riddhe is using a regular ReZEL with the mega launcher attatched to it. but the MG standard ReZEL only comes with the rifle and you need to buy the command unit to get the mega launcher XP and i dont even know whether you can attatch that weapon to the standard ReZEL...

oh, the part about the " box with wings "

the regular one doesnt even have wings (: that's why i assumed you bought the commander version

ah yes you are right, it doesnt have wings^^ sorry, my bad!
but still, i wish they would have given us the mega launcher for the standard ReZEL as well. but i dunno, i guess thats a little too much to ask for :P

i dont think the regular version can use the mega launcher at all tbh, the backpacks are too different

yeah, probably. riddhe did use the mega beam launcher in episode 2 though, so it would have been kinda cool to have that as well^^

but it would be REALLY awesome if they gave us the ReZEL defenser units A and B!

Defenser Unit A (commander norm's unit):

http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/__...9/67645674.png

Defenser Unit B (riddhe's unit):
http://images.wikia.com/gundam/images/6/6e/56435764.png
http://images2.wikia.nocookie.net/__.../567585685.png

with those special backpacks i actually like the wave rider modes, too^^

Dear god no D: those kits would be horrible, it would be impossible for either the A or B type to stand up in either MA or MS mode :x they are too armed.

Thanks, a damn good builder indeed. Nice FSS inspired modifications.

The Raira Ria Soreru figure could be a great base for a Gundam Girl Deathscythe custom.
