  1. My work with glitter might inform you with the grass. I place a piece of printer paper under my project and apply a liberal amount of glue. I then just pour the glitter on till I get good coverage, pat it down a bit and let dry. I then dump the excess onto the printer paper and funnel the remainder back into my container.

  2. I am really enjoying this series. Norm, I would really like to see more of these builds if you have more kits like you’ve shown in past videos.

  3. I was yelling “Do it over a piece of paper” at the screen when you were sprinkling the grass on. It’s a lot easier to recycle the fallen grass particles that way. Looks like a pretty sweet build though. I always overlook these when I am at Japan Town.

  4. What were the small spatula tools called, damn it guys, I ordered 4 kits to build. My wife is going to kill me. had a friend in Japan buy the kits for me along with some other diorama kits.

  5. Joker31, those are called “spudgers.”

    I feel so nerdy for enjoying this. One problem, the “overhead” camera seems to have a constant wobble. Making me a bit motion sick. 😉

  6. Someone could make a ton of money translating the directions for these from Japanese to English. I’d pay $2-$3 for a translated PDF.
