The folks behind Gundam models have set their sights on, well, instant ramen in a styrofoam cup.
That’s right, this spring in Japan, the iconic Cup Noodle is getting a one-to-one scale plastic model. The official site points out that you are not to fill the model with hot water or eat it. Sorry!
Here is how the Bandai model compares to Nissin Cup Noodle.
You’ll need to assemble the whole thing, down the instant noodles and the Cup Noodle logo.
Apparently, building it only takes longer than three minutes, which is the amount of time it takes to cook Cup Noodle.
