Here are the kits I have and will eventually be working on.

Just thumbnails to look at here to get an idea of what I have and what I have to look forward to working on these kits. You'll see some minor work done on a few of the kits but it's not enough that I feel it's necessary to post them as a WIP.

1/6 Battle Angel Rebirth

My first original kit.

Definately one of the kits I consider a "Grail" seeing as Battle Angel is by far my favorite manga and tehre are so few kits made of her. The detail in this kit is nothing short of amazing. Unfortunately she will remain in the wings until I get an airbrush and am confident enough with it to give her a very nice paint job.

1/6 Chocolate Misu

An original kit I won off of Yahoo!Japan. She's actually still sitting in the Shopping Mall Japan warehouse until I pay the shipping fees. I got lucky and managed to win her and her siter together for 15,000yen.

1/6 Lolita Asuka

One of the 3 kits I received from the "Secret" Sweepstakes when GKJapan first opened its doors. She's a great cast with the most work going to be on the ruffles since some of the resin is a bit thin and see through because of it.

1/7 Issutahr (Ishtar)

One of the 3 kits I received from the "Secret" Sweepstakes when GKJapan first opened its doors. She is a wonderful cast with only minor puttying to do and very few pinholes.

As you can see I already have her test fitted and primed with grey primer. I am currently working on sanding her smooth when I have a few minutes here and there.

1/7 Plenair

One of the 3 kits I received from the "Secret" Sweepstakes when GKJapan first opened its doors. She's adorable and a great cast. I haven't noticed any major problems with her yet.

1/8 Alita with trenchcoat

Only the second Alita kit I've seen that I wanted. (There is a 3rd that pops up on ebay once in a while but it's very poorly done with horrible proportions). I managed to snag her off E2046 while she was in stock since I had not seen her anywhere else. I have yet to see her ever pop up on Y!J

1/8 Ivy

An icky, brittle thai resin kit I bought from someone else with a few others for $25. I picked up the set mostly because of the Marju & Fee kit since I have a weakness for elves. Ivy will need a lot of work.

1/8 Jun Bikini

I picked this up along with the Marju & Fee group of kits though this is a better quality kit. If I remember right the person bought this one from HobbyFan. She will still need some work due to some fairly heavy seam lines and a warped swim suit.

1/8 Marju & Fee

The original reason I picked up the group of kits. Unfortunately I haven't had much of an urge to build her due to the very poor resin quality. I've done some puttying and minor sanding here and there but that's about it.

1/8 Suirei Wet Dress

An icky, brittle thai resin kit I bought from someone else with a few others for $25. I picked up the set mostly because of the Marju & Fee kit since I have a weakness for elves. She will need a bit of work with the possibility of resculpting the skirt on her dress since it's incredibly warped.

1/8 Yuriko Bunny

An icky, brittle thai resin kit I bought from someone else with a few others for $25. I picked up the set mostly because of the Marju & Fee kit since I have a weakness for elves. Again a lot of work on her. warped swimsuit and seams and pinholes.

1/8 Ghost (Kachikuou Rance) Bow

Definately the work cast kit I have. It was only the second kit I'd ever bought and unfortunately I went with an ebay seller. She is extremely brittle thai resin. The resin is yellowish in color and has a smell when I sand it. The detail is great on her but when that detail breaks off if you look at it wrong its not worth it. You can see some of the bondo I've applied to her to try and fix just some of her imperfections. I also waited probably close to 6 months to get responses to a missing piece before I finally got that piece.

AVOID the EBay seller HobbyandGame like they are the plague!!!
