Where to start... I originally built this MG Gouf Custom way back in the day, pre 2002, and pre me learning to clip the pieces from the runners and sand down the nubs. It was a shame to let such a beautiful model collect dust in such a sad state.
I'm not sure which came first, the decal purchase or the idea for this guy. When I built my RX-78-4/5
I saw the nifty Soviet decals from Microscale
. So, after finishing the other projects I was working on at the time, I got to work on this guy.
I started by taking the kit apart piece by piece. I'm sure a lot of people looking to spruce up an old kit would much rather just leave it alone and work from the outside.
