I remember hearing about the Sentinel FA conversion, very much looking forward to it.  What's the base kit for it? I recall hearing that it was a RX-78 ver ka type conversion although it looks like the RGM-79C in the pic.  Looks like the Blue destiny kit is progressing nicely as well, when I first saw pictures, you were only in the prototype stage.  How soon, usually, does it take to reach the non-selling period?

yes you will need an RX-78-2 ver Ka for the full armor...otherwise you won't have the gundam head....haha. since the frame for the gm c and ver ka gundam are the same, we used the gm for testing fitting purpose.

about the non selling period...it depends how fast the customer can sell out the stock...as soon as the customer reorder the kits, i will be able to sell the kit. judging from the past it's about 6-9 months. The GM light armor and the RX-78-1 were also private projects. We started out private project with the 1/100 flying armor in 2005 (if anyone remembered).

Damn, that FA looks good...I need to get out my old convention only resin kit and build it one of these days.  Too many kits, not enough time...

w00t, preorder for barzam sent!

now, if only we could talk Ako into a full-armor rx-78 conversion....  *hint hint*  :D


what do you think i am doing then.....? I am a hard working guy... :P




Ah, yes, I remember seeing a thread about it elsewhere, but dismissed it for some reason.  I had been thinking more along the lines of the FA-78-1, though...  still, looks good  :)

AKO - I sent in a pre-order request, but never heard anything back.  Did I miss something?

I also sent in a pre-order request but didn't receive a reply.

Perhaps I forgot to include my FFF username or something along those lines.

As it is past the June 15th deadline, maybe I am out of luck.

Ako, sorry it took so long for me to send you money, was waiting on some tool from Ebay to send me money.  Got it sent tonight, hopefully you can overlook the late payment (I know you said my invoice expired the 19th).  Looking forward to getting the conversions I ordered and other stuff (like the aurora film).  Gonna have to go and reassemble my MK II 2.0  :D


As another request, any chance of us seeing some Gundam X conversions in the future?  Might be able to use the MG Freedom or other Seed MGs as base kits.

Edit: Meant to ask about MG MK II 2.0 Hazel conversion possibilities, as well.  The only MG AoZ stuff I've seen (except the Barzam - it is AoZ right?) are the impossible to find GM Quel head set.  I know how popular AoZ is (well, on this forum it seems like).

Hi Peter,

I have checked with my staff and i think you dropped your pre-order on 5/22 and we didn't receive your payment after sending the invoice to your email pedro@shipXXXXX.org. if you are still in just let me know.

Hi All,

just want to tell those who ordered the Barzam kit know that we have completed the shipment for all FFForum order including Bawoo and Shin Matsunaga. we managed to complete shipping 60% of the pre-order today.... very tired!

However, it might be a bad news to 1 or 2 of you that the package will come with mistake. I received 2 messages from another pre-order group and one regular order and after checking we found out

1. A Zaku II upgrade kit was mixed up and shipped instead of the barzam kit
2. One of the FFForum special kit was mixed up with regular pre-ordered kit and shipped out.

Since i can't find out who's package was shipped with above mistake, pls let me know once you have your order. I will paid for the shipping of returning the wrong kits and replace the correct one with speedpost.

my apology.

Mistakes happen, very kind of you to notify everyone and let us know that you are handling the situation.  I'm hoping its not from my kits but at least if it is, I'll know its taking care of.  Thanks for the great service and to ask, when is the GM-III projected to be released now that the barzam has been put out.

Got my package today, looks good so far.  Gonna get these things cleaned off and then do some test fitting.  Might try and take some pics since I don't see too many WIPs of the Ako stuff here.
