    Your attention to detail in your work as well as your tutorial is mind blowing. Doing a Gundam is definitely on my wish list and this will most likely be the definitive resource that I use. Many kudos to you, good sir.

    No wonder people's head look big in Gundam helmets. It is only a half mask and doesn't cover the entire face!

    Thank you for that information. I hope people will adjust there pep files accordingly.
