    Well I got my shipping notice from HLJ for that one but now NY is asking for an additional $170 for shipping. I already paid them like $80 so it's $250 to ship from them but like $85 from HLJ? I've asked to cancel the order but not sure what their policy is. Anyone have experience with them on that? Feels like a bait and switch IMO.

    I know this may be a weird ?, but has anyone in the US gotten a shipping notice at all? I ordered one of these from HLJ and one from NYasan and HLJ won't let me pay for shipping and NY has been in prep to ship for like a week. I paid shipping at NYasan Is there a problem with the box size to US?

    I'm in the USA and HLJ took my payment but will not let me move it from PW to cart to pay the shipping and get it shipped. I would love to see if they would be open to ditching as much of the packaging as possible and putting it in a smaller box, as long as all the stuff is there I don't care about the outer box.

    The other thing to consider is shipping cost. i doubt it will be very heavy but a big, big box. HLJ shipping I would guess is $100 or more.
  5. I'll be going for a "thru the ringer" look for this one.
  6. Not much to show build wise since the kit is so well engineered, but will get this started for showing the paint up. Prep was done in just a couple of hours. Still some to do but it builds quick.

    Back on this a bit, adding more details to the engine bells, also adding some extra veneer nozzles to the inside of the engines. I can add 2 pre paint, then paint, then add the LED for the engine lights, then add the last 2 (painted separately). Otherwise the LED won't fit. Also routed out all the channels for the eye and engine light wires. Not a fun part but necessary. Getting ready to do the final smoothing on the body.

    Heading into the final prep on the body before painting starts. Setting up the display base. The wood will get routed on the underside to hide electonics, then sanded nice and painted black. The zentran emblem wiill get green and yellow I suppose.

    The dome was sanded smooth and buffed a bit, then I sprayed it with Tamiya green clear, then I hit it with Krylon frosted glass spray. I also hit those 4 acrylic spheres with it also, otherwise they would look a little to "hot"

    Green clear then frosted the dome (better for diffusion) painted the inside of the tube silver.
