  1. Wow! I take a bit of time off and this is what I come back to?!?! 😂 Seriously though, everybody's projects are coming along great! I hope to post something soon!
  2. I'm not sure if this is the best place to ask but here goes. What is the absolute most I should pay for this? I figure: retail price + proxy fees + overseas shipping + small markup. Does $350 shipped seem high, low, or just right? I really wanna get one of these really bad but don't want to get ripped off. I'm usually a model kit guy but this release I just can't pass up. The ebay prices seem really high.
  3. This is the pair of sprue cutters you've been looking for. They're essentially identical to the much more expensive Meng pair that I have. Compare them and read the reviews. MicroMark version https://www.micromark.com/Modelers-Micro-Sprue-Cutting-Pliers Meng version https://www.themodellingnews.com/2018/02/tools-tried-n-tested-meng-models-mts.html?m=1
  4. @jenius is a class act. Very smooth transaction. Thank you!
  5. Please let us know how much shipping was. I'd like to have an idea as to whether or not I will order this.
  6. @Photogirl is that white stripe a decal or painted on? Looks good so far!
  7. @joscasle Your super CF is looking amazing! I can't wait to see it all done. From my experience, the magnets are tricky to get right.
  8. Try a layer of Microscale Liquid Decal solution. Then, use very warm (not boiling) water. Hopefully, that may do the trick.
  9. What is this!!! This is the most amazing thing I've seen in years!
  10. I have the 1/55 TV armor and I think it's too lightly colored. The Arcadia TV armor I think is colored just right. Of the two Hasegawa armors, I think the one on the left is the perfect shade. I mixed a custom color after much, much experimentation. I wasn't happy with the Hasegawa color callouts for the TV armor. Anyway, I hope this helps.
  11. Yeah the battroid has the removable insignia plates on the fast packs. Also, the micro missiles are showing in the fast packs as well. The super fighter does not have these options.
  12. She's really coming along now. Almost done.
  13. Still masking and painting the little details. I hope I can get 'er done soon.
  14. @peter you're ambitious! It's always a learning experience at the bench. Working on these older kits is a challenge but it is worth the effort. From my own experience, I tend to abandon the older kits more frequently. With the unusable decals, poor fit, and cruder engineering, it's a real challenge to follow through and finish. I'm not saying you'll abandon the build but just encouraging you keep going we'll be watching.
  15. The boxart for the low viz has been posted: https://twitter.com/hobby_magazine/status/1382838670260989960?s=20
