Thanks, they actually have a forum too!

Does anyone know where to get 800/1000 grit sandpaper? Home Depot doesn't have it :S

Try Sakura media, or Soul of Anime, if I remember correctly, they both have it, but not for cheap. Buy online instead.

I have the pre-made Bandai models from when I was a kid. I have the Heavyarms Custom (my all-time favourite Gundam), and as far as I know, the ONLY one I have that's still in one piece.

If I had the cash and the time, I would attempt to build a Gundam model (but I really wanna take a shot at an Initial D one).

First I think you need to distinguish this:

Are you going to treat these as models? (Think 1/24 scale cars, military, etc. serious modelling)

or are you going to treat them as toys?


If the answer is yes to the first question, then you can PM me and I can show you what I have done in the past and occasionally do now. No snap fitting with markers. I use airbrush and paint brushes to get the effects I want.

Sadly the serious community has died locally. GWS is closed for good now so there are no local places to go for information on building these types of kits. I see a lot of mis-information here in this thread.

Thanks, I'll give that place a go if Rona doesn't have any that high.

you are right, nothing looks MORE REALISTIC THAN SOMETHING LIKE 1:1 ...

I just strongly doubt you can find any ...

if you want gundam markers you can get them at sakura media or soul anime at richmond center

i prefer thinner markers (finer tips), unfortunately richmond center doesnt have them. you can get those at imperial hobbies on no.3, across from lansdowne/futureshop/bestbuy

get an eraser handy to erase the stuff on the surface after detailing

yeah most stores I've checked out have it for 100 or more, any good online stores to order from? I found a site called hobby wave, but even then it'll come to 100 or so.

Toys Planet in Crystal Mall, right next to escalator above the smelly medicine joint.

Urban Samurai Hobbies in Lougheed Mall. Upstairs near the alteration place.


There are a couple of places in Richmond, but I'll let people who live on the other side of the "great divide" tell you about them. Hee hee........
