Man, this is amazing. You've done the Elmeth justice with that paint job, the bits look wonderful. I'm more of a fan of the modern kits, but I had no idea that these could look this good. I might have to buy one, though I can't do as good a job as you have.

Fun Kit

VV,
Thanks for the comments, it is greatly appreciated! Its a fun little kit and builds up to a nice representation of the Elmeth. Many of these 1980 Gundam kits still have a little life left in them. For $3.00 pick a couple up and have blast, you won't regret it!

Thanks again!

I don't recall Char's Gelgoog

holding onto Elmeth's antenna.

If memory serves me right, Char was close to hitting the G-fighter with his Gelgoog's beam saber, then realized the piolt was his sister. He withdrew and the gelgoog's arm was sliced off by Gundam. Amuro was ready to finish off Char but Lalah took the hit and died. So I don't think Lalah and Char escaped together as shown on the box.

Elmeth Screen Shot

S915

I added a screen-shot from the anime. If you have the old Bandai Mobile Suit Gundam DVD's the scene happens at the end of DVD Vol. 10 episode 39 Lalah's Dilemma. The battle you are referring to happens in a later episode.

Cheers!

thanks

cool! I am guilty of just watching the movie version. I needs to watch the tv series again, it has been over a decade.

So it was actually episode 39 (the manual has a typo: ep 40)

Lost Episode

S915,

There is an episode MS Gundam , Number 15 called Kukurusu Doan's Island, that was never aired in English and not on the English DVD. Accordingly it screws up the official count of the episodes by one from the English list and the Japanese list.

I guess Tomino never really liked the episode and its considered the "lost" episode. I'm sure its on youtube but I haven't got around to watching it.

Thanks again!
