MuntoeAnyone interested in anything from the latest Treasure Festa? I feel as though a lot of it is just stuff that's been re-released lol (not that I mind, gives me another chance to find the original)

As an unwritten rule, Treasure festa can be considered a mini Wonder Festival with very few new kits as the makers are all holding out for the summer WF in a couple of months.

Personally, I'm keeping my eye on the millimeter modelling Asuka Langley at 1/4 scale. Been watching that one for a long while... And I'm a rei fan!
Kuroneko from T's System was also nice, but she's T's system... There was also a rather cool kneesock kit too.
Oh, and Erio from Denpa Onna. Hope to see more of her in the future!

euler271Hi, I've just joined because I really want to get into this hobby, can anyone help with how can i start, I've seen a lot of GKs and I really want to know what do i need to start.

Hmm, I suppose you will need a GK suitable for the beginner (the one with a few simple parts). Then some tools, depending on how you would like to paint : brushes or airbrush; primer; sand paper; steel files, putty, masking tape etc. I would recommend you to read some sources "how to start". There are a lot of handy things here, for example [ext link ]

Hi everyone. I'm starting to get into the scene and I've been meeting with an artist who is a sculptor. I wrote a review of his work on my blog: [ext link ] he's only been sculpting for 2 years!!

I kinda wish I got a middleman to get Volks Saber Lily from WF but I decided not to in the end. I don't have the skill to make it so it would have just sat around ^^

Woo! Managed to get a couple of GK from Wonder Festival. Can't be bothered to get the Miku Append kit tho. She was on Y!JA for 17k but I didn't go for her.

Uhhhh if you don't want someone to paint her and you don't want to try building her yourself then I have no idea what you should do with her. Perhaps try selling her on a garage kit related forum or here on Tsuki?

Indeed, for tan skintones I usually use a generic fleshtone and then add drops of brown, orange, red, etc. until I get what I want xD

CatherineHello! Im working on a recast of Kitsune Ne-San from E2046 and I want to give her a healthy tanny look, just like URD on Oh! My Goddess. I already painted the flesh tone but it looks kind of plain...(I didnt do shading yet).

Any tips on mixing tanny fleshtone? ^^

Thanks!


Pretty tough. I guess you can try doing the opposite of what I do for my skintone and start off with a very light tone and then slowly add layers of darker skintone until you get the desired look. Basically, going from light to dark tone. It will probably make shading harder though...

Most dark-ish flesh colour acrylics would probably make for a good final colour.

MuntoeA good place to try is Mandarake if you don't want to use a proxy service, since they occasionally carry some rare kits on there. Otherwise, your best bet is using a proxy service to purchase kits from Yahoo!Japan. There are also ways to buy kits from retailers like Volks, but I'm not really sure how the process works.

You can also buy recasts of kits from retailers such as E2046 and Hobby Fan. However, keep in mind that many consider these kits 'bootlegs' since you are not receiving the original cast that the sculptor created.


Volks is... tricky. Even though a large portion of my GK come from them... They sell some of their kits through their online store, notably the Try-GK line of kits. You are able to make an account with them and they accept international credit cards as payment but many of their items will only be shipped to a japanese address. There are forwarding services like tenso.com which can help you with that though. There are occasional exceptions which are made available through their international page. I think Bayonetta was available for a limited time.

Other items may only be made available through special events like wonder festival or volks own Hobby round events. For those, you will need to contact a proxy like tokyohunter who will go to the event and pick one up for you, for a price.

And yes, there is a certain stigma associated with buying recasts. It usually operates on a "don't ask, don't tell" basis though. So long as you don't promote the buying of recasts outside of the seller forums, people won't pry as to whether or not it's a recast.
