Fulcy, any chance you have enough stock to do a Sinanju option kit?  Like with the beads for the cables, replacement for the thrusters, and other parts that might work with that kit.

There seems to be a lot of metal thrusters and tubes available from a lot of different vendors, does anyone have any thoughts on which would be best for the MG Sinanju?  I'm just looking to replace the tubing and thrusters, but not with anything too large.  A lot of the replacement thrusters I've seen have cool detail, but are way too big.

I'm also curious if anyone has tried photo-etched or metal transfers for the detail markings. 

And while I'm at it, does anyone have a recommended source for some of the option parts like the bazooka or beam gatlings?

Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting rid of some of my kits, since I've been way too busy for modeling lately, and could use the cash for other projects.  I have no idea what these are realistically worth to people now, so if you guys can tell me, that would really help me decide what to sell.

Here's what I have:

PG Strike (snapped, with an extra sword) + PG Sky Grasper (new in box)
MG Blue Frame Second L Revise (new in box)
MG Unicorn (snapped + extra bazooka + stand + waterslide decals)
MG Hyaku Shiki + Ballute (new in box)
MG Crossbone (new in box)
MG Zeta 2.0 (snapped)
MG Char's Z-Gok (snapped)
1/72 VF-25F Messiah Valkyrie Alto Custom (snapped)
MG Ex-S + NeoGrade hobbyfan recast conversion + Coreworks recast conversion (snapped, no work done on resin)
MG Dom (partially painted)

I really don't want to part with any of these, but I don't know when I'm going to get to these (I've only done two kits in the last year), and there's some gear I think I want a lot more.

That's awesome, may I ask where you got it?  This is a must build for me, but I never saw a kit worth the effort.

I don't think I'm interested in any of those, but if have others please let me know. Thanx.  :-)

Nah, packaging doesn't matter.  But I am looking for things that are closer to toys than display figures.  And I'm obviously trolling for deals, so I'm mostly looking for things under $40.

Just curious if anyone would want to part with any of their mecha figures?  If they're mostly complete, and in good condition, please let me know by PM or post.  Thanks!

That's just awesome, great scratchbuilding.  The rail gun really looks natural with the kit.  Love the paint scheme too.

Awesome!  I've never seen a gay robot before!   :razz:

Not to completely nerd out, but what about C3PO?

Or this guy:

I know you've seen him before.

Anyways, looks awesome Foo.  Curious as to which technique you used to tackle the raised white markings?

Great panel lining, and on pretty challenging surfaces, I'd love to hear more about your technique for that.  My attempts at panel lining always trend towards disaster.

This is more about critiquing actual work, as in stuff you've done, and maybe giving tips on where to go from there, not coming up with ideas for you.  Because we all have a billion projects at the planning stage, and if we all discussed those this board would be flooded with useless posts about possible projects, most of which would never even get past the planning stage.

This is looking awesome, and it's really making me want to do mine in metallic shininess (but maybe with the internals being mostly matte). 

On the black and gold parts, is the black also going to be high gloss like the rest of the armor?

Yeah, that mask is great.  Did you do it by hand, or tools, or is there some plastic underneath the sculpey?

What did you do with the eyes?  Looks like there is an LED in there, but they have a cool design, like a mech iris and pupil or is it just the light in there.

Nah, no LED's, that's mostly just some photoshop cheating.  I did paint that detail on the eyes, but you can barely see it, and you can't see it at all in the pictures, so I brought the detail back in, and then gave it a little glow.

Really great paint job, especially the leggings and wings.  And I'm constantly amazed how her tits keep getting bigger with every new sculpt of this character.  :-)

Here's a kit I built and shot several months back, but have been too busy to post (hopefully now I'll get around to a couple others I haven't posted).  It's a 1/100 Red Frame kit with a few modifications, Exia resin hands, mechaskunk parts, and custom paint.  It was also the first time I used Mr. Super Metallic paint, and I have to say I like it a LOT better than alclad II.  Let me know what you think.

The rest of the pics are here:

I'm looking for any kits (preferably used) of 50's cars, bikes, scooters, grills, tailfins, headlights, whatever kits or parts you might have.  For my Group Build 5 entry I need anything with an art-deco theme that's made out of plastic or resin.  I'm especially interested in any Vespa scooter model kits, or anything that resembles it.  Please let me know if any of you are looking to sell anything like this.

I'm tentatively in, I just need to find a vespa scooter model kit.  I'm going for an art-deco 50's/60's themed mech, something with Cadillac tail fins, and a vespa based control seat.  Something between these two mechs:
