Re: Dabadi's Polynian "Clover"

Clover grey and Shamrock grey are still up for preorder. I bought the garage kit for both way back in October of last year, and it seems painting panel lines is not a talent I possess. I've got a few more tricks I can pull, otherwise you might find some Polynian spare parts in the Buy Sell Trade boa...

Re: Cradle?

It's very hard to find cradles these days, so it would probably be worth it at any price (when I bought mine 3 years ago, the price was 2000 yen.) If you need a gimmick, I suggest a removeable bottom and a mousehole large enough to run a cord through. Then you could put things like a flash drive or ...

Re: 3D Printing a 1:12 scale doll.

I am using Blender, my trusty caliper, and a bit of material science. Blender recently added a measurement tool, and that is when I switched from using SketchUp (I made a failed pairs of shinki shoes in that program.)

3D Printing a 1:12 scale doll.

Recently I gave printing some MMS compatible arms a try. I learned quite a bit! https://s3.yimg.com/so/7445/12623127324_ca4f33c78b.jpg The wrists turned out amazing, they can hold Gabby's bracer on with ease. The upper arms ended up too loose however. Need to try again. http://farm8.staticflickr.com...

What sort of paint did you use? It may have dissolved the plastic.

Re: Busou Shinki RPG - RPG Maker VX Ace

Anyone wanting to try and help out with this project might try using the Lite version of VX Ace. It restricts how many maps you can make, but that will not stop us from being able to combine your maps into a main project!

Re: Interest in replacement screws?

I also thought a set was "just enough screws to fill up one Shinki". I'd be up for purchasing enough screws for a Shinki, if you have any left over.
