    MG Zaku II 2.0 Pipe Size

    Hi there, wanting to buy some metal up pipe for my Char's Zaku 2. Anyone, offhand, know what size works best? I will be doing all the pipe sections. So head, waist and legs.

    I lack the ability (out of town for few days, away from model kit itself) to measure the pipe diameters myself right now, but want to order the parts asap.

    Thanks!

    Here is a link to where I get my up grade stuff from. He is good and has fast shipping. There is an other seller "hqoparts" I get a bunch of stuff from them as well. But these are the size that you would want. He has them in Silver, Gold, and Black.

    Thanks much! When (and if) you buy for a Zaku, how many of these do you buy? 1 or two packs?

    Personally I use Taobao, huge selection and much cheaper than anywhere else, but only worth it if you're buying a significant amount. You could always add some metal shoulder armour spikes, metal thrusters, metal air diffusion holes etc this is just one sub-section of a store with a lot of metal parts, there's a tonne more, but again only worth buying in bulk, my next order from them includes a LOAD of metal parts, photo etched parts, chisels, an airbrush, decals etc WAY cheaper than anywhere in US/UK:

    Even I am a Chinese, I never used TaoBao before. Do they ship to US/UK? Do you pay with Alipay or UnionPay?

    I use a 'forwarder', its pretty easy really, the one i use is Basetao, you can pick the shipping method you want, i go with DHL, its pricey but my stuff is here in days, and when you order a lot the shipping pays for itself in the saving you make, if you google "gundam parts taobao" a bunch of forum posts etc will come up explaining it, thats how i found out

    I don't speak a word of Chinese! I just saved a bunch of Hobby stores i found and mainly use them, but if i can't find something i just use google translate, been looking at some resin kits lately that are otherwise completely impossible for me to get. I might make a thread just for Taobao stores.
