since you're gonna sand it, look up "progressive sanding" to get back the (close to the original) original smoothness of the plastic.  It's simply a process of sanding from a lower grit to a higher one.

Get the RX, but, I reco the One Year War version.  It's more detailed and has better proportion compared to the 2.0 or the 30th.

In case you guys are interested.  READ THE MECHANICS.



GUNDAM MODEL KIT CONTEST 2011
NATIONAL FINALS

CONTEST MECHANICS

    The contest is open to all Gundam enthusiasts except employees and immediate family members of Bankee Trading Inc., International Toyworld Inc. and its advertising agency up to the second degree of affinity or consanguinity.

ACE Hardware should have some, as for those thin hobby saws, mahirap makahanap, though, you might chance upon a set at lil's hobby or JMN (Harrison).

I've been reading about jeweler's saws. I believe these can be sourced in Raon. Also, dental drill bits can theoretically used for dremel tools... not sure if they fit in the dremel chucks though.

I'll try to source them out.  I just hope they are cheaper compared to the hobby grade tools.

Anong masa-suggest nyo na cutters for Gunpla? Gamit ko kasi ngayon are wire-cutters that I use primarily for new pickup installation and cutting strings for restringing. Hindi kasi malinis yung mga cut nya eh.

Alexan at Megamall has side cutters that cuts clean and is comparable to the expensive Tamiya and other branded versions.

Deeco doesn't have them.  You can get that for the very low price of 110 kesos.  Alexan also has toothless pliers which are perfect for my plaplate bending needs.  

Here's a better picture of the side cutter.

ml, question lang.

Anong color mas prefer mo for panel lining? Grey or black gundam marker? For me kasi, when I panel-lined my Exia, parang masyadong nagsa-stand out yung black. I'm thinking grey would be subtle enough, but would still show-off the lining.

It depends on the overall color scheme, and your preference.  I actually prefer black across the board.
