Wolfman X: Thanks dude you are the best, I'm bring in all of my old paints too. Also got a tarp for the floor, a liter of acrylic primer, turps to thin the enamels a set of cheap hobby knifes and some of my European Earth Mig powder in a small container for you. I know you already seen the results of kusette but this video was good for me in seeing how to apply it. Will use it on a 1:288 Gouf. If I'm happy with the results its going on my 1:144 Turn A SUMO...

Will also bring in the second eva movie and Unicorn Gundam if I think of it...

Photo time,


Our happy turn out


Models on display


La'paint d; stationa

Small but really fun turn out (expected day after grand finial) a great time to lay out some experiments. The new primer is awesome, the tarp replacing the drop mats is awesome and we were able to manage one staff member down with out issue. In talks with George to have one more meet late October then break around November for some drinks at Robot bar dates to be confirmed.   

and dont forget to bring in a small container to get some of that mig powder i got as well

Ops!

Looks like great fun, good to have a little crew all getting into it when normally it's such a personal thing building/painting your kits.
Maybe in the future us qld folk will have a similair event.

mousemuffins, october being the final one followed by drink ups on november so you got plenty of time to consider. date is yet to be finalized but it will be mentioned here.
Sonar all in due time now, but coz im capped im down to having restricted dialup kinda speeds so surfing is a pain but what else is new on my side. Hopefully i could get the little bugger done that way i dont need to have to do a WIP at all. speaking of which, my GN-X......
