For large kits you should definitely stick to domestic stores, since Japan based online shops like Hobby Link Japan and Rainbow Ten really kill you with shipping.
even after shipping HLJ and rainbowten are cheaper than all US stores. FOr examples the cost of a gundam is 20% off of Japan's retail price. While in USA, it's like 20-30% more than japanese retail price. THe shipping for SAL is like 10 dollars per kit.

Lets see how many you can actually put in a strike gundam so far:

1. Aile
2. Sword
3. Launcher
4. IWSP
5. Lightning
6. Noir
7. Oowashi? (you can put it on HG 1/144s)
8. Shiranui? (same reason)
9.
10.

Hmmm.... could we be looking at 2 or 4 more striker packs? interesting

I dont know about the others, but I like the strike packs
Anyone mentionned gunbarrels pack?

Edit: YES

I ordered the Murasame and the Strike Rouge IWSP and I was only charged $5 shipping. This shipping is based off of the weight...I believe.

hey guys can anyone give me another suggestion instead of the 'Castrol Super Clean' product to strip the gold chrome off the HG Akatsuki? I can't find this mysterious 'Castrol Super Clean' anywhere in Australia so far. I've checked hardware stores such as Bunnings and Super Cheap Auto, regular stores such as target, kmart and so on but still no trace of this 'Castrol Super Clean'.

What type of product is it anyway? a household cleaner liquid, a kitchen cleaner, floor cleaner, wat type is it noramlly used for? I've asked the people working there and they have no clue of what an 'industrial strength cleaner', let alone heard of Castrol Super Clean. I also could not find any formula 409 either.

Anyone have any other suggestions for products to strip the chrome off the akasuki? =\

Not sure if it works on the chrome of akasuki or not, but I use a normal household bleach to remove my plated Archangel. Maybe you can try that.

I am not sure that's a good idea... You won't be able to beat the price of the professional supplier...

OMG !!! is that for real ? if HGUC Dendrobium will be for 220USD I think I'll wait for one more month to get it insted of buying it locally for 400USD !!!

But shipping Dendrobium from Japan is like 120USD (EMS) so I'll save 60 USD
