I dont care what how much I'll buy, the problem is when to ship because lot of stuff beeing released in July, others in August and some at Sept :s

So I think I'll go for an order on the end on June to cover june+july items and order on end of August to cover August+sept items and after that I'll enjoy my life with nothing to eat

The box is the size of a standard non-flatscreen TV. But the model is much bigger (and longer) than a shoebox... maybe 1.5 shoeboxes?

I dont post much, but have been following this thread for a few months.

I'm just curious, have there ever been any modeling projects with the tv series version Wing Zero?

I havent seen any myself, but havent really going through extensive searching.

I believe it's over 3 feet long from the tip of the gun to the end. Anyways, pictures are much better than words, so take a look for yourself at dalong.net

good idea, id better check it out. the new dendrobium that they are re-releasing at the price of 294,00 yen is a better engineered version i presume right?

Hmm, does it say anything about a dvd included? I remember the last time they released the Dendrobium, it had a few freebies included...

That's my 1/100 MG S Gundam. I don't think I did too badly for my first properly painted model.
Took me 4-5 months of on-off painting -_-

JanthraX^ - AFAIK only the Ex-s' rifle and the Z-Plus C1 has a radome on it.
Nesty - the stand is nice and soft, but the metal bit has a tendency to scratch the paint if you position it wrong.

Yes, I know it's not Gundam, but figure I'd post my most recent kit I finished... Macross Zero anyone?

That looks great. Great detailing on it. One question though, in the pictures #23 and #24, there appears to be a red glow of sorts coming from the visor, but I don't see that same glow in any of the other pictures? It there an LED or something in there, or just a stray light?

I'm guessing reversing the knee didn't require any repainting since it looks like you did it the same day you posted the original images. I had the same problem the otehr day with my MG Strike I'm working on. I put the elbow joints into the lower arm assembly backwards and had to tear it all apart to fix it. Pain in the ass...

The red part on top of the head was painted with a special type of paint that changes colors. Goes from red to green, depending on the angle you look at it (in person) /angle light hits it.

If you are talking about the visor itself; then it may be the lighting. The visor is painted with clear green. Inside the head there's another clear piece that I painted clear red with the center lens painted black.

Yeah, I like that spot on the head. I noticed some subtle changes depending on the angle of the picture. What kind of paint is that anyway? Only kind I know of that does that is some that Dupont makes.

As for the visor, that was what I meant. Now that you mention the clear red inside, it makes sense. The lighting must be reflecting off the clear plastic and causing that red inside to reflect, giving it that glow look I'm seeing.
