    Hi-Metal R

    Looking great. Will wait for a more complete group shot with Milia in there too.
  2. If this is the item: https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B071CKHP6Y/ref=sr_1_7?keywords=vf-1j&qid=1558023190&s=gateway&sr=8-7 Then it has been there for a while and I saw that when NY has it for 22K, was going to go with Amazon.jp (cheaper/faster shipping), but was worried that it might be a non-PF version. The photo showed that it is a PF version for sure, but not mentioned in the description. And there is another item that explicitly states that it is PF with a higher price: https://www.amazon.co.jp/dp/B07C11Q4M2/ref=pd_rhf_se_s_cr_simh_0_5/357-7904839-2220557?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07C11Q4M2&pd_rd_r=073038db-6964-4158-87cb-11cf0a7ef7f7&pd_rd_w=cD04D&pd_rd_wg=6vY6P&pf_rd_p=b135569c-3545-4f33-9bd0-c3a23741f9fe&pf_rd_r=GX588ZEHBDKYRDP7035Z&psc=1&refRID=GX588ZEHBDKYRDP7035Z So be careful and verify before buying.
  3. Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I am really worried about the registration problem. I think this problem will also be the key issue for using the ghost white toner for laser printer (https://www.ghost-white-toner.com/shop/white-toner-hp-canon-1215w/). I was tempted to buy a used printer and one toner cartridge and try this out. But you will need to print the white backing first and then the color image on top of that on a second pass. Some video tutorial suggested trying to shrink the white pattern a tiny bit to eliminate white edge around the graphic. The printer is just over $100. If I have the time, it might be cheap enough to just get it and test out the registration consistency on consecutive runs. My old impression from using laser printers (decades ago when using HP laser printer) is that the feeding mechanism is more consistent compared to the cheapy inkjet printer that I have now. I might be too over-optimistic about this.
  4. @anasazi37, Your decal rock, I think I still have a set of Minmay guard from you that I have not use yet. So I hope you can help advice about this idea that I have been toying with. If I print on white laser decal paper to have the white backing that help with using it on non white surface, and then use a laser cutting (like the Forge) machine to cut out or trim the decal down. Will that be a good setup? Need to learn more about the capability of the laser cutting machine. If. There is an easy way to register the position of the pattern, then painful trial and error will not be necessary.
  5. I stop myself from getting that kit. The cost + space and skill required. Already have a huge backlog. But it is surely nice. "Presence"! Especially with Anasazi's decal.

    Hi-Metal R

    Did anyone find the HMR canopy to be too thick? I didn't notice or care at first, but my VT-1 has a cloudy canopy, then I notice how thick they are. Not sure if the polish + future/pledge dunk method will work. Worth trying to do a vacuum forming replacement? Any idea?
  7. I wonder if these two are about the same size: https://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/64861 This is painted, but no articulation. Seem to have good detail but hard to be sure. If you have $1.5K to spare and the space to display it. It is out of stock at BigBadToyStore.
  8. Ok, Ok, doing it now. I am such a pushover.
  9. The good thing for me is, Milia is not shipped, waiting for the VE-1 PF release. And then they will be on the ferry. It will be months before I really will feel the pressure of the missing PF Max. Good to have some time for my wallet to recover.
  10. I am also been eyeing PF Max since I ordered the Milia PF. Still holding out, but I know I will cave in at the end.
  11. Didn't notice it until you mentioned it. Now it really looks ood.
  12. could be. I was surprised because I imagine that shipping is automated. But now that I think about it, each purchase could have different weight, so someone possibly needs to do things manually.
  13. Shipping delay from AmiAmi for my 1D. Receive an email saying that they messed up the shipping weight and the package was returned to them. Will re-invoice. They have handled many 1D boxes by now, how can the weight we wrong?

    If I am brave enough, a sharp knife and a small metal wire can resolve this.
