A truly fun little site devoted to a monthly or so online Gundam modeling contest.  You might see a work or two from this site up there…

 

This site has some pretty decent work, focusing mainly on 1/144 scale kits.

Tons of reviews on a bunch of kits!

 

This is a web site dedicated to the art of Gundam modeling. It offers many things—you can view finished models, learn techniques for modeling, visit new links, see workbenchs, and participate in one of the most active Gundam related message boards out there.  Sit to be revamped in 2005.

This site focuses mainly on One Year War Series such as MSG, 0080, 08th MST etc.  Lots of info.  Note:  This site has been revamped to a much more bare bones effort, but still good.

 

This site used to have it alll—an excellent message board, a very complete gallery covering all Gundam series, and an up-to-date news section.  Now it appears to be a dead site, but I’m staying hopeful.

 

This site has a great reference—Burke’s Mecha Domain lineart and Mecha reference were moved here!

This is a purely Gundam X site.  It isn’t fully up, but has some nice mecha reference and line art shots.

 

 

Translation Site: Excite Japanese to English Translations –This site allows you to translate the Japanese web text into English!  It isn’t perfect, but more than adequate to read.  Note:  There are two radio buttons under the URL entry box.  If the translation doesn’t work with the first button checked, try it with the other box checked.
