    Hi. I am looking for a couple of sets of articulated hands for deluxe sized figures. I have a couple of sets of the 1/60 Macross (I think) resin fists, and something like this at around 1/100 scale seems like it would be perfect. Does anyone know a source for these, or even a figure that I could pick up to 'recycle' the hands from? I can only think of the Alternator hands right now, although they may be a little big, and are not as articulated as I would really like.

    Thanks.

    Would 1/144 Gundam hands be big enough?

    They are probably about the right size, but fixed and not articulated. I may pick up a kit though, as they look like they would be really useful for kitbashing and modding. Thanks.

    Damn, wasn't sure if they'd be fixed or not. Oh well.

    Interesting. Thanks.

    That first link goes to a store with a number of products... they all are labelled as 'hands' but with different products at different prices. Any advice on which set would be best for this, or any guidance about which set is which...? Or even if I only need one set, or a couple...?

    Thanks also for the resin cast thread.... these seem to be Voyager sized only. But, I will follow this up.

    I appreciate it.

    The hands labelled A are for 1/144 scale. (deluxe?)

    The hands labelled B are for 1/100 scale. (voyager?)

    Use the 1/100 hands for deluxes. They look great and are the perfect size. The 1/144 are too small.
