1/1 scale (?) GUNPAM in China

Chinese Gunpam (taller than Japanese Gundam) done with this beautiful and traditional gold with pink accent. Great job!  The shine from the nylon tape like futuristic material represents festivity and 4000 years of Chinese cultural excellence.

Traditional Bamboo scaffolding was used for the construction of this master piece.   The oversized hands and the central pelvic area are the perfect example of “originality” that the Chinese manufacture of this Ganpam was talking about.  Well done!

On the other hand, See this Japanese GANDAM.  It has all these details that may not be  necessary at all and it does not have the beautiful gold nylon tape. What were they thinking?  The model almost too carefully refined the meager 30 years (as opposed to 4000 years) of  Gundam Anime design.

This is simply too much and too good.  Japanese culture needs to relearn the idea of Wabi Sabi.
