Capitalism Corner* / 1/144 Wildwurger (Brand new) -$20

1/144 Wildwurger (NEW) - $20

I live near Pasadena, so I would prefer to deal with someone local for pickup. However, I will calculate shipping if you give me your zip code.

If you are interested and have questions, please feel free to ask. I'm also open to trading for kits as well so feel free to offer. I only build 1/144 kits though or non-scale like EVA kits. Thanks for looking!

Looking to buy the Big-O kit that was released a while back and is now pretty rare.  I would prefer to have the box and manual if the kit is already built.  Thanks!

Might be because the part was not varnished enough. I just use regular tissues or cotton swabs.

Just with water or with 91% alcohol?

Ahhh I see.  I didn't know that more layers made it glossier.  I only sprayed one layer.  Thanks!

How do people shade black on a kit like the Strike Noir or the Deathscythe?  Do most people just not shade at all?  What about other really dark colors like a dark dark blue.  Thanks!

I have a question about getting a high glossy finish with FFA.  I've sprayed FFA straight from the bottle without any flat base before inking and decals.  While the finish was glossy enough for the panel line ink to flow and the decals to slide, it wasn't glossy enough for me to use on something like the Sazabi or the Kampfer.  Anyone know how to get a really high, sharp gloss with FFA?  Can I use super fine polishing compounds on it?  Thanks!

Sorry to drag this thread back from the dead, but what do you guys wipe the ink off with?  With my experience using India Ink on other things, it was incredibly difficult to remove.

Thanks for the cotton tip.  Never seen that before.

This is ridiculous.  Some people are obsessed.

Kit Specifics / How tall are Bandai Big-O and 1/100, 1/72 VF-1S kits?

Just wondering how those kits compare to the rest of my 1/144 collection of Gundam kits.  Thanks!

Anyone know how often mags like Hobby Japan and Dengeki Hobby have those special limited edition kits bundled in with the mag?  Trying to decide if I should get a sub or just buy the single issues whenever they have the kits like the recent XN Raiser.
