    On this perfect grade model, does anyone know what the wings are made out of? Is it just thin plastic?

    I thought the same, but then if thats the case, then bending the bottom tips of the wings like that will eventually fracture them. I guess I was hoping they were rubber or something.

    lol... shipping alone wouldn't make it worth it for anyone

    building it is the best part. The pain you have to go through to make sure each plastic is cut properly, do the outline perfectly (e.g no smudges). Oh and the wires are PITA as well.

    it's easy to remove smudges, just use an eraser

    How much could shipping be? Besides, this might be the only way i could afford a PG...if that's what this is.

    Can you post pics?

    I'm still deciding what MG i want to order next week.

    Its around $35 CAD to ship from a quick calculation. but honestly it's probably not worth it, how much is the whole thing cost from HLJ?

    My PG Wing zero just cost me $165USD ($191AUD) shipped from Japan, but at least I'll get to build it myself, which is definatly the best part of buying PG kits.

    And yours, is the first pic I've seen of the Wing Zero with decent white balace. The panel lines look crisp, what did you use to do them and did you top coat the kit afterwards?

    Nope, just the black liner. I didn't want to screw up painting the PG. Sure I tried it on some MG with some success/failure I ain't taking any chances with the PG. I tried to make the liner as thin and black as possible. It was a bitch cuz you can't do it fast.
