    Brilliant thanks guys, i'm used to the higher prices over here so i'll get over it ! At least 1seller is being reasonable. This hobby would be a lot easier on the wallet if i moved across the pond !

    i looked on amazon.co.uk and they have this and then some that looks the same but is priced at £47 ($ 67.88) I would think its just somebody trying to cash in as it is imported or something but just want to make sure the cheaper one isnt something slightly different.

    The kits arrived yesterday and after a quick look inside the box i am blown away, they look amazing. I haven't been this excited to start a build in ages, thanks for the offer i'll be sure to let you know how i get on. I might even do my first work in progress with one of them. These are the kits i got.

    polishing techniques and products for tamiya paint.
    Hi all, I am looking for some help with products to use for polishing tamiya acrylics (the X and XF ranges not the rattlecans). What do you guys use for polishing and buffing ? i have tried a polishing compound from Halfords (auto shop) but it seems to take the gloss out of the paint and eat through it if left on for a short time.
    Thanks in advance for any help and advise - Phil

    very nice, it looks great. i built one when i just started out and struggled with detailing something so small. I have another one to try my hand at now i know a bit more.

    I have noticed over here (England) that model kits are no longer found in toy shops, I have just started building star wars kits and the nephew was instantly interested and wanted to build one with me. I went looking for some revell lights and sounds kits but couldn't find them anywhere in a shop and had to order from amazon. Surely if revell want to sell these kits aimed at young kids they should be in toy shops so kids actually see them and get interested, how many kids under 10 are browsing amazon for model kits that they do not know exist ?

    I have just bought myself a couple of gundam kits as i also grew up loving robots. I have no clue about what they are or anything about them apart from the fact that they look cool ! I have seen a few built up and have fancied building them for a while.
