Modelers Make Gundam from Runners

You know those little plastic tree-like structures left over when you're done building a model? They're called runners - part of the injection molding process and basically a waste. For most products, the factory recycles runners as the parts are detached, but for models they are left on to make live easier for the builder. Well, some folks over at ummmm....a place in Japan, took a boat-load of these runners and made a 3-meter tall Gundam. Check it out! And the video.
