    Hmm, I might have to start secretly swiping some of my wife's beauty supplies.

    Yup, beauty secrets is the brand, but there are others. I think I have bought 'Island Dreams' too I usually just grab the cheapest or whatever is on sale. The local beauty supply place has them on special all the time for around a buck or so. I do still buy some sandpaper as there are some places that the sanding sticks are tricky to use in.

    Anybody ever order kits from Japanese Hobby Plaza Japan ( http://www.plazajapan.com/ )?

    Trying to find another place, cause it seems HLJ is currently in restock mode.

    I'll be waiting for your report too. I'm especially curious about how the speed and shipping compare to the almighty HLJ.

    Anyone see a price for shipping on that site? I tried checking out and i see only a charge for the kit. I hope it's not like HLJ used to be where you waited for a shipping quote. Never a fan of that.

    Please do not pm me with questions on how to do something hobby related. Just ask in a related thread.

    So roughly HLJ's prices for shipping. That's not too bad.

    See stuff like that is why I just order from gundam planet. Even if the kit was half price that shipping man! That's almost as much as the kit if not more.

    They claim that shipping is about 7-10 Days so I feel better than HLJ.

    We shall see.

    Yea this is the reason I like ordering from American Based businesses, supports our economy + the shipping.

    I can spare a couple of dollars (As long as it's not over $20) in terms of that to get my instant gratification.

    Ok i can just wait and see then. At least i get to buy that hgac wing zero soon in the mean while. Thanks for help.

    hm, I would recommend http://japan-cool.co.uk/
    Their prices may seem steep, but If I were to order something from HLJ, By the time the postage and the customs prices comes in, it comes out more expensive than the prices on japan-cool, It's really more of a choice for UK buyers. (Their customer support is great too.)
