If you saw how much money he makes off selling his kits on Yahoo Japan Auctions, you wouldnt believe it.

Yeah, but just think about how much time he has to put into his painting and conversion work tot urn out something like that. I would not be supprised if he would make more money per hour flipping burgers.

Oh, no doubt! A lot more skill, too. I'm just saying that while the prices for the finished models might look quite high, compared to the amount of time and effort put into it those prices are actuall quite cheep.

Black enamel paint in Sydney

zephyrus,

theres only a few model stores around in sydney that prob carries black enamel paint. I'm sure HobbyCo in the Midcity Centre will carry some and maybe the Astrohobby at Townhall, or Modellers World in the City might have them

Cheers

You mean the original justice gundam? I believe the freedom gundam was more popular than justice, theres no reason why they shouldnt produce a master grade version. Gundam Seed is still popular enough, but I wouldnt hold your breath.

Astrohobby s great t has the harder to find stuff for mecha building that Hobbyco doesn't (wqhich s just around the corner anyway).

Hey, I've been wondering if anyone can help me with this... I've been making Gundam models since the first Wing ones came out in the US, and I've always wanted to get rid of the creases between parts. I really hate the fact that after all this time building these things, it still looks bad because those lines in the models look terrible. Can anyone tell me how to get rid of them?
