well, honestly, i don't know what i should write maybe i didn't realized that i'm finally done with this model.
it takes a horrible long time to build and sometimes i was about to give up, but after more than two month (effective building time) i can share this pictures with you
Fazit: the best decision was, to print the sheets on A3, because this model takes me to the limits and you should have a little bit more experience for this. the most parts are quite easy, but some pieces are hard as hell. you can see it in the "building process gallery"
specially the backpack was that part, that gives me more then one headache
but it was a challenge that I gladly accepted because this model is really unique and definitely an eyecatcher in every shelf ore something else.
the guys from "Just Paper" did a great job on this and if they ever decide to create an other one, i would build it too

the sheets are free and should remain so pls download and use them only for personal use otherwise i must remove them

Neo Indonesia created the GF14-001NI Silek Gundam for use in the 14th Gundam Fight, their respective first battle to participate, but this Gundam failed to see the light of battle since the fight was ended in its 13th round. The Gundam was programmed with capability of fighting in Indonesian traditional martial arts style, Pencak Silat (or Silek, hence the codename of the Gundam). At first Barong Gundam ([link]) was supposed to be the representative of Neo Indonesia, but Silek Gundam proved to be superior as it defeated Barong Gundam (which was developed by different manufacturer) on their trial battle. This Gundam was supposed to be piloted by Neo Indonesia's one and only youngest parliament member, Teuku Parindragiri, upon his personal request to set out example for his fellow countrymen that a true leader should be the first to charge in the battle.
Yo! After my exam I took these spare weeks made my 3rd archangel Gundam Sariel! He appears as enemy at first so I made him some evil sense.... and too similar color theme with my Uriel? I made him in black and gold... but light effect is too dark! I'll try to make some weapons for him these days....
this model was on my list for a very long long time and i'm happy that i finally started and finished it
i have to say this even this model has "only" four pages DON't make that mistake and underestimate it but this one is nothing for starter
the most time took me to re-draw the tab-side that it worked easier for me also some pieces are really ugly and hard to understand specially the elbow parts
Tipps & Tricks: i made no tutorial or progress pictures, well honestly i was not in the mood to do it, i just want to build it
but of course i wanna give you some tipps here
first and maybe important try to print that thing on A3 or double sized some pieces are terrible tiny, specially the head has some really ugly pieces
think first before you start to score or/and cut how you would build it or rather it would easier for you the pdo is protected so you have to
the torso has a few issues between the chest and the hip, the single faces are squares but bend as triangles, so there are a few hidden folding lines
the legs itself are easy, the only thing where you have to look out is the piece what stick out and you have to bend the leg a bit when you wanna combine it with the hip
the arms are the most complicated pieces as i said, specially the elbow there are two pieces (C6+7 and C32+C33) combine them first if you build them in row you will have later a lot of problems trust me, i had to build the whole thing again
didn't build any of the weapon thingies, because they are just impossible, i don't know how the designer made it freaking indonesian papercraft gods
anyway, it was fun to build that thing, it is really a stylish white mecha model but never again
