Not exactly kits but related parts. Two sets of SAC white metal Hunter landing gear stuff from the Big H, as I'm on a 'Hawker Roll' at the moment.  ;D

Metal Earth R2-D2 photo etch kit.

A surprise late Christmas present given to me by my niece on behalf of her, my brother and his partner.  I didn't know these things existed before today.
I don't think it's nice, you laughin'. You see, my mule don't like people laughin'. He gets the crazy idea you're laughin' at him. Now if you apologize, like I know you're going to, I might convince him that you really didn't mean it.

From eBay, a Bandai 1/60 injection moulding machine:



I received this today. I had assumed this would be moulded in 4 colors:


but apparently they also released a non-colored version. Mine's mostly black, with one section in very dark gray. No big problem, I can always paint it, but kind of a surprise.

IIRC that kit was a very limited edition done for the winners of some sort of contest, or something long those lines. Very limited production run in any case. Is yours definitely an original, or a bootleg?
Some of my models can be found on my Flickr album >>>HERE<<<

There's a sticker on the box that says 'Ecopla', and I've found that's a range of Bandai kits that use only one color. Also, the use of 2 colors of plastic on the same sprue (black and dark blue, it turns out after inspection in decent light) suggests the sprue was made on a machine capable of moulding multiple colors, not the low-end machine I'd expect a bootlegger to use.

Good to hear. :thumbsup: A lot of Bandai stuff gets ripped off in China...
