Just wanted to post a note that I've updated the Top Coat Guide to include picture comparisons. Go me!
If you're as impatient as me you often brush things by in the store quickly, not often gathering all the details.
One such item for me was the Char Aznable theme's action base for 1/1444 & 1/100 scale kits. The bag art contains pictures of the stand covered with Zeonic & Char markings. For a while I thought, "that's nice, shame I don't have any of Char's Gunpla or it would be a good fit" moving on to the clear action bases instead. What use would a Char detailed stand for my RX-87-2?
Well, turns out the detail makings aren't actually the base at purchase, but they come as a sticker sheet with each base. Granted I notice now there's a small thing on the front pointing that out but the pictures give no indication. (There's no way in hell the marking in the photo are stickers)
Some view the Rick Dias as being under appreciated, others I imagine hate it. Personally I think it's an awesome design and a worthy evolution of the Rick Dom family. Coincidently, it also makes up a damn fine model.
This was my first time using real Gundam markers, the Real Touch version to be specific. They work excelent and cleaned up very well.
