Finally!!! RX93 V2 Hi-V Gundam fully built

Well what with doing other projects doing stuff for Halloween and also making stuff for Christmas I have finally completed the rx93 build!!! It has taken me about 5 months on and off to build this and I must say it has been quite a hard toy to build but I think it was worth it in the end.

I gave it 100% attention at the end just because I wanted it built and out of the way finally, it has taken up quite a bit of room compared to the other toys that I have built in the past. I also decided to design and build a stand for it seeing as the model is considerable heavy at the rear due to its wings so I built a stand which the rear tubes could sit on and keep it upright I was considering building some form of platform on one side of the stand as you may have seen in other folks Gundam diorama's, but no I have decided that I have spent long enough on this toy and also I have a couple of hundred new templates to keep me busy too.The toy is going to a local school so it can be enjoyed by the kids, instead of it ending up in the recycle bucket.....

So here is a collection of photos of the RX82 V2 Hi-V Gundam as designed by rarra hope you like it.... ^__^


  1. I've also built this but not the fins. It's too heavy and will tilt the gundam backwards. I like what you did with the platform. Is there a chance that you will share the template for the base?

  2. I had the same problems with the fins but I put wooden poles in to support the weight where the fins attach plus also made little wedges under the fin hinges to take the weight also.
    The base was sort of scratch built but I do have the sheets somewhere which I used. The inside of the base also has a honeycomb of card strips to take the weight also.What is your email address so I can send you the template of the base.

  3. thanks:D
