This guy(s?) is amazing, been admiring his/their work for a while.

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. :(

More passion goes into building and modding kits than flipping burgers :D

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. ;)

hey guys, another question from me, and is directed at anyone living in Sydney Australia, where can i buy black enamel ink from?

for the panel lines on my MG SF >.<

thanks in advance!

RedFrame 2007-05-02 04:47

I change my MG Freedom into MA mode :p

thephreak 2007-05-02 20:41

hey all, im new to this forum, but ive been buildin models for a while now but i noticed that there are absolutely no MG Justice models? whats up with that? besides Freedom and Aile Strike, the Justice is arguably the most popular so how come no MG models?

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

M_Flores 2007-05-03 06:11

Very interesting indeed. I am curious of how you did that.

Akyra 2007-05-03 09:18


That kinda reminds me of Wing's flight mode....

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?

zephyrus 2007-05-04 04:25

thanks guys, ill check at mdoeller's world and hobbyco ^^

by the way dan, you can use some kinda modeller's putty to put in between the cracks, i dont know the specifics myself since im pretty new at this too but thats what ive hear O_o
