Mini is on route as well. I feel like I've been ripped off with the cost of postage, but that's to be expected of the Belgian Postoffice. They'd better treat it as a porcelain package now.
Currently we have 2 submitted tracking numbers. I will be distributing the tracking numbers tomorrow/Thursday to keep the secret alive a bit longer.
In other news, I broke down and cried yesterday evening when I removed all the masking tape from all the robes I have painted and completely ruined it. The clock is ticking! I will make it in time - the goal is to ship Friday, but it will be tough!
I don't trust masking tape for this exact reason. I used it to protect the sensitive areas I had painted, just to have it rip off to the bare plastic by removing the tape. NEVER AGAIN
Did you stick the tape to your clothes before applying it to the mini? It won't adhere as much to the paint if you do that.
Not on clothes, but did the usual triple-dab on my cutting mat. But the most damage has not even been done by the tape, those that I discovered recently have not proved troublesome (mainly tamiya), this was the bloody masking fluid. Anyways, time to soldier on and adapt and overcome. I have as well ordered some new primers, Vallejo released a "Mecha" line that is meant for Gundam, most of the tests on youtube I have seen suggest it's quite resistant to wear and tear, so hopefully this will improve in future.
