    Wow great build, I have this kit myself and had a chance to chat a bit with the creator when I bought it (even got his sig :-D) he is such a nice guy really. Why doest it say cardmodels.cn on your pictures?
    As far as I know this is an event only kit, so I guess you, like me, was in Japan at the right time, at the right place... Or maybe you were lucky enough to get it at auction?.. Where did you get it, if you don't mind me asking? I'm allways trying to find rare japanese models myself you see.
    Kind Regards,
    Qess

    This is one of my favorite models. Someone knows the site where you can buy the kit?

    Legally this is an event only kit, being sold only at events by the maker himself. However, you can still find stuff like that on yahoo auction Japan if you are patient and very lucky. But, expect to pay 50, maybe even 100$ in fees from the bidding service you will have to use. It has drained my account many a time. Check this link once in a while; it searches for paper and gundam.
    Yahoo!¥ª¡¼¥¯¥·¥ç¥ó - ¥¬¥ó¥À¥à¡¡¥Ú¡¼¥Ñ
    BTW, a little know fact is the reason for all these event only kits, in Japan its illegal to release a free model on the internet, and you risk getting sued by the rights holders. But if you sell it at an event, the kit (be it plastic or paper) gets a sticker and a catalogue number and essentially becomes licensed merchandise. A lot of models coming online right now are from Korea, which makes sense since they are all but safe from prosecution, and are just as anime loving as the Japanese.

    Hope that clears it up :)

    Thanks Qess, Can you point me at one of the bidding services you refer to. Do they arrange international shipping as well. There's some nice stuff there that I'd love to get my hands on ;)

    You just link them what you want and they'll buy it, receive it, and re-ship it to you. But be aware, you are loosing many of your consumer rights.:eek:
    I cannot overstate this enough be sure to read ALL of their terms of service, TWICE. Just so you know..

    I know of these 3, they differ in price and what level of service they offer... (Storing multiple items for combined shipping, batch shipping all items to the usa and then shipping to individual customers, online bidding system, deposit amount and so forth.)

    Rinkya - Japan Auction & Shopping Service - Japanese, Anime, Car Parts, Dolls, Robots, & Much More (currently using)
    CELGA - your source for anime goods
    Shopping Mall Japan - Your source for japanese movies, clothes, games, toys, and more from Yahoo Japan Auctions !

    Have fun,

    Qess
