Perfect Grade Zaku (Char's Red Comet) for $ 160 CAD
And a bunch of other ones too, just ask on the forum if you're interested.

I live in Toronto Canada, so anyone interested and who has the cash holla at me. Note that these prices are cheaper than what you would find at a retail store and no taxes applies.

do you live in toronto? i asked the worst question ever -_-; NM haha

do you run a store or do u simply get it from a supplier from japan?

Anyways, hey guys. How do people set their models in like that great lightning (ie: http://home.att.net/~skylabhanger/rgm79_3.jpg). Is it just the work of a camera?

Ya i can ship, but at your expense , check your local retail store for prices, because i don't like to rip people off on shipping. I am a hobbyist too, and I personally hate paying extra on shipping. But if you do find my prices competitive, then by all means holla at me, I'll gladly ship.

No sir, I wish i own a bloody store. The reason for the cheaper price is b/c i don't need to pay rent in a mall and hydro and electricity and such. For example, pacific mall sells a perfect grade zeta gundam for 315$+taxes. I can sell u one for 250CAD without tax. But that has recently been bought, so i'm out of stock lol. But ya i run a small thing trying to make a little marginal cash for tuition for university, so if you're interested I can definitely sell you a kit if u find my prices competitive.

Taking pictures is very easy. Here's an example of how I take pictures:

And the resulting pictures can be found here: http://www.gamerabaenre.com/ryofu.htm

I'm using GE reveal lightbulbs. The white things over the lights are just tracing paper to create a "lightbox" type effect. Softening the light. The background is just a big piece of paper with clips holding it down at front and some sturdy objects behind. The paper just leans up against the object behind, and with the curve in the paper, it will like like a seamless background. Hope this helps.

Hi there, as of now I would have to order them from my supplier. I don't have any seed kits rightnow. If you're interested i can definitely give you a quote as to how much you have to pay and such. Give me the whereabouts of your location and I'll work out shipping costs too. And of course, ya gotta tell me which kit u want haha.

Well...I've very far, so it's quite alright. I just thought if you had any GS kits on hand, why not. But don't worry about it.

Probably transfers.


if you have any aspirations of painting that model, wait until after you paint it before even messing with them.
