    Hey there guys,

    I've got a relatively simple question. I'm trying to get started in customizing, and I'm looking for 1/100 hands to fit voyager and leader sized figures. Does anybody have any recommendations as far as brands and places to buy them go?

    Thanks!

    I've read somewhere about people using the hands from gundam models. Where you could find them loose i dont know and as far as price no idea about that either.

    Hobbylink japan and ebay have some options for you. Alternators also come with hands you can use.

    Hey guys! Thank you very much for the help, all of you. Took a look at the 1/100 Hobby Link hands, and they're exactly what I'm looking for. Again, this rookie appreciates the help!

    I was wondering the same thing myself. How can you tell, from the Hobbylink site, what would fit a Voyager, Leader size or even a deluxe size?

    I guessed the approximate size I needed mainly from browsing through customs here and seeing what others used for the size figure I'm using. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think 1/144 hands work well for deluxe, and the 1/100 hands are good for larger Voyagers, Leaders, and MPs. I don't know much about Gundam (other than the potential for custom fodder), but I don't think there's anything between 1/144 and 1/100. Again, somebody correct me if I've got it all mixed up.

    Are there any huge ones that would work for Hercules?...I love how the ones linked are ball jointed at the hand base so the fingers can be spread naturally...

    I'm not sure if they're at Hobby Link, but maybe 1/72 hands? I double checked, and it seems like the breakdown for custom purposes is this: 1/144 Deluxe, 1/100 Voyager, 1/60 Leader/MP, and 1/72 for gestalts. Of course, this is coming from somebody who hasn't actually used any of these hands.

    deluxes would look good with 1/144 or 1/100 scale hands. I like larger hands on my customs, so I try to stick with 1/100. 1/144s look a bit small sometimes.
