I am a big time scale modeler but do mostly hardware - I help run the countries, and maybe the worlds, largest show dedicated to scifi and fantasy modeling
My friend and fellow Panthers fanatic has a web site for his work which is mostly resin/garage kit figures -
Did you order from HLJ? What did you get? With more specifics I might be able to offer some tips....
Preordered a few Appleseed resin kits from e2046.
I got my Yamato and Andromeda kits from HLJ, but they are still in storage. Along with probably 3-4 Gundam kits. Never got into figurines. Would buying cheap car/armor kits from toy stores to practice on be a good route?
Damn, crazyjoe has got some skills.
