  1. I don't know if the Tamiya silver spray is anything like the paint markers.
  2. I use the Tamiya silver paint marker, I push down on it to retract the felt tip to get a pool going in a plastic lid, then dip my brush in it to paint from it (its a lacquer so you can thin it if you need to, but its a very smooth chrome finish without any visible glitter speckles).
  3. Great shots Lolicon! What a difference it makes to have the gears in white. Might I suggest you painting that shock struct bright chromed silver, it does take it to the next level.
  4. Thanks Lolicon about the tip about the Bandai Tampo, I was just going to use the Tamiya masking tape right on it - lucky I read your post first. Have white gears makes so much of a difference! Hopefully I can get to the VF-1J & VF-1S over the holidays.
  5. I love that Saturn V - best kit ever! Its such a pleasure to build. Took a chance on the China knock-off lego on the LUT and it came out great. You could get the Shuttle in cheap China knock off lego here - I'm very tempted, but it doesn't come with the stickers which I believe are key. https://www.welightbrick.com/collections/new-arrival/products/nasa-space-shuttle-saturn-v-scale-designed-by-kingsknight And its not like these Chinese firms are ripping off Lego as they refused and passed up on making these MOCs.
  6. That's great Anasazi37 that you have a dialog open with HLJ (my personal favourite to deal with even if its not the cheapest!). I will be very interested in what you guys have to say.
  7. Oooh, which kit is this? Scale? Any good detailed 72nd kits out there of this? Hoping for a Hasegawa.
  8. I'd be interested depending on what kind of personal financial information is required to have the bot purchase it.
  9. I was wondering too. But I think I might use them, paint them black on the outside then grey colour and use a pin-vise to drill just enough to scratch off the paint to get more windows lit, because the holes they drilled are really only 1/2 the number of lit windows there are in the filming miniatures. I think this is an easy way to get more lit windows without drilling all the way through - maybe, we will see when I get around to trying it.
  10. Count me in on that!

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Arrived from NY and without extra shipping costs too. Its big and cool, don't have time to play with it till after my business trip in 3wks. It's pretty big, but I noticed they only paid 2100Y for EMS - so I don't know why the other place is asking for more shipping.

    Have the Chuck supers been offered up for sale yet?
  14. Amazing what a difference it makes! Great job!!! Damn you, now it seems like something I should do too. Just remember add the silver to the shock struts.
