I don't have a black enamel so I'm not sure. But none of the paints I do have are drying out yet. I tend to use the humbrol enamel for white areas, and Citadel Colour black for panel lines and such.
I do have a little plastic pot of matt black I got with an Airfix kit the other day. Not sure how long those'll last, but the seals don't seem as good as on the metal pots.

thanks for clarifying. lately the matt paints are getting to dry quicker. i find the matt white pretty good aside from the yellowing of time. the matt black lately gets dry really fast. 2 days resealed after initally opening is enough to get a dry coat on matt black. not sure how your plastic pot seals up but the tins arent too freindly to matt black.

i got a small question:
how do you make the panel lines on a top coated kit? i was planning to use tamiya black (X-1) enamel paint mixed with a little thinner (lighter fuel should work), put it on the piece and clean it with thinner.
or is there an even easier way?^^ now that i have more time thanks to fedex i wanted to use that to plan ahead a little bit more :P

Appel, it could be worse: Your package could be on a plane that crashes, leaving it in the hands of a mentally unstable Tom Hanks!

Positive thinking, yay.

Yeah Fedex has odd shipping going on, I live in Canada and when i order a package from Japan the first place they goto is Alaska, USA. which its not so bad cause i'm on the west coast. But then they ship it all the way down to some State in the south of the USA, by which you just flew over top of me and then back up to Canada. I don't know why they don't ship it to the closest city from Alaska. lol

It looks nice, but it's not quite a replacement for a proper pg. The thing that bugs me the most is the wings: they're too small and underwhelming. Is this a buyable conversion-kit, or a scratchbuild?

edit: Hold on, the page on the gundam wikia for Freedom is deleted? WTF?! why? It's a fricking main suit! not some not some palette-swapped MSV side-suit. Haters?

NVM: it was just renamed/moved, causing some redlinks to the former! quickrage ftl.

yeah i guess you are right. the wings do look at bit too small. its really no replacement but id still be happy to have something close to a PG freedom in my collection^^ i LOVE that suit and its still one of my all time favorites. ill put way more work into my MG freedom than into my other kits once it arrives!

and this was done by takayo4 as it seems, at least it says so on the first page of the hobby magazine article. so its probably fanmade and no buyable conversion kit. in my opinion some parts are just not suitable for it to be a commercial conversion kit, anyway. many parts simply dont look like the real freedom, especially the backpack^^
