Hi guys, I decided to join this club because I've completed a few kits of my own and I've got a whole bunch more to do :o I also really frequent the E2046 forum...a lot, so I know a good amount about building them xD I probably won't be here as much as I am on E's board, but you are all welcome there and there are so many people willing to help you start out with years of experience under their belt. I'm pretty sure a lot of them frequent other hobby boards too.

Now I know that a lot of people are against recasts and everything, but I think they're good for the basis of learning how to paint and work on these resin pieces. I also know how it is to not have any money for these expensive kits, which makes recasts look very appealing. When I'm more established in my hobby with an airbrush and a set career though I definitely plan to get all of my kits from Yahoo!Japan or other retailers, as I want to avoid these recasters as much as I can.

Other than that, I really love building chibi kits and I'm not into the thousands of kits of girls with huge boobs LOL

Hello!

I don't currently own any GKs, but I plan on getting some in the near future. = 3 I'd like to try out painting one of my own, but if that doesn't work out, I'll just look for someone who can do it for me.

Either way, I'm in love and I hope to learn from everyone here!

vhaysteGuys,

What other color themes do you think will good in this GK?

I think a Black/deep red would be good for Fasalina, but in more general terms, a deep main colour with a light but vibrant colour for the detailing would work too.

Alright, I've decided to make my own garage kits... I've ordered Fasalina: (ext link)

And I'm ordering these two. I'll start with those figures with fewer parts. I think I can handle the painting and assembly.

Lol before i saw it I would like to suggest the purple/black combo thats my favorite color pair but a blue/pink would also look good.

I am planning to start building and painting my own GK figures. The only problem is I don't have any experience at all. I'm hoping to learn more with the experienced gk hobbyists in this club :)

Thank you!

Problem is.. I forked out all the money to buy the tools and now I don't have cash left to buy the actual kits

DimitryI mean, all necessary for their assembly mooore, mooore expensive than kit itself. Paints, brushes, putty, tools, air brush... And it needs to be considered too.

eh you pay for that cost upfront. but I yeah I understand, you could buy 3-4 Original GKs for the price it costs to start up.

also Rider's been sitting on my workbench for 7 months now and I finally get some color on her (ext link) I'll do a proper gallery after she's completely done just waiting on stuff to dry.

ZakennaNo, I find the kits rather expensive. Compared to pre-painted PVCs of the same scale they're more expensive.I mean, all necessary for their assembly mooore, mooore expensive than kit itself. Paints, brushes, putty, tools, air brush... And it needs to be considered too.

So true...


Same here. Most of the kits on ebay come from Thailand. The castings are very terrible.

yunalesca2544Thanks a lot for the info!

Already started to order some tools already. A few of them should be arriving here soon.

What company sale sites do you use? (and can be trusted).
I've already seen a lot of ebay shops around.


As a rule, avoid Ebay like the plague... For kits, I tend to buy official ones so I hit Yahoo Japan auctions... round about now to try and snag some wonderfestival kits. As for tools and paints, I go to high street shops to get them as I prefer to see exactly what I'm buying. Helps a lot when it comes to paint buying
