  1. Injection molds (centrifugal for example) are great for styrene kits which overall are more pleasing to work on than resin in almost every aspect. Doing garage kits (50-500) with it is a net loss though.

  2. i hope i am still watching stuff like this when i am 80. maybe not the same context but the same spirit.

  3. Sure hope that thing came with all the pieces….ive not always had the best luck with the Xabungle kits. I do remember checking though :)…

  4. Sorry Norm, yours is not as “Vintage” as Frank’s. It’s from Turn-A Gundam. The kit you’re building was released in Aug 2007.

    Xebungle was a short lived show from 1982 – 1983

    He knows, he said it was newer in the first video. It’s based on an earlier design though.

  5. If you take a picture of the text with Google translate you get a more accurate translation then the on the fly translation.

  6. I agree with Frank on each person building their own kit. You can moderate the tempo without worrying someone is waiting for you to finish a part of the kit. Isn’t it suppose to be about enjoying the process and not finishing it as quickly as possible?

    Love what you guys are doing!!!
