Title: Kotobukiyi Mesh Pipe
Post by: Maschinen Krueger on February 20, 2006, 12:34:50 PM
Anyone familiar with this stuff?

Is this just like the stuff that comes with the RGM-79C or the Kampfer? Kinda like a shoelace material?

Hi! There is an alternitive that may be just as good, cable braid, it's made from nylon so could possibly be painted fairly easily, plus is comes it various sizes and is very cheap, here's a pic of the stuff (http://cableorganizer.com/images/techflex/gorilla-braid.jpg) I'm not too sure where to pick it up in the US, but i think some PC customisation online stores have it. :lol:

Actually, you guys may not need to look too far - I'm considering stocking my own mesh sleeving in my soon to open MechaSkunk store - various sizes and colors (mainly black and white).  Hopefully I'll be able to get the same sizes that Kotobukiya offers, but I need to do some searching first...

;)  I think I may have found a supplier for the mesh sleeving - I just need to make sure it's the sleeving that I want, and check the sizing.  Hopefully the samples will get to me sooner, rather than later, and i can make a decision then whether to go forward adding this to the store...
