Designed but never built, the “Deep Striker” Gundam was intended for attacking behind enemy lines, far beyond their borders. Because of the long-distance solo operations planned for “Deep Striker”, it’s loaded for bear with extra thrusters, fuel tanks, and a wide variety of weapons including a massive cannon taken from a battlecruiser.
Gundam model kids, known in Japan as Gunpla are plastic model kids that consist of several, prepainted trays or "runners" of parts that snap into place and require no additional adhesive. Based on the popular manga and anime series "Mobile Suit Gundam" and its many spinoffs and sequels, Gunpla have been popular in Japan and the West since the mid 80's.
Gunpla come in various sizes, the most popular being 1:144 and 1:100 scale. In addition to size, Gunpla have various "grades" which refer to the complexity and range of motion of the kits.
