    I believe there are a few guys here that do casts of Gundam hands (I know Ptitvite does). Check the "Reproductions and Stickers" section on the right column and you should see Ptitvite's casting thread.

    If you can't get anything online, then you're pretty much outta luck, as hardly anyplace on the entire North American continent save the rare specialty shop even carries gundams.

    Offtopic, but really? Here in the Philippines you can find Gundams of all sizes everywhere from department store toy sections to local TRU. Though I'm not really sure why, as I don't really see kids ever buying model kits.

    You're closer to the equator. I'm in Ohio, where the nearest gundam kits are in my local comic book shop (and are about 5 years old or something, I'll proably nab them someday to see what they're like).

    I'd love for my TRU to carry Gundam model kits, though.

    Well if you stick around a few months or so… I might be able to help. I’ve been recovering from having cancer, & my hands have been screwed up from the chemo. Since a lot of these kits are going to be $30-50 a piece, & I am only going to use parts of them… I’m going to scan the parts that I am going to use a lot of, & put them on Shapeways. Right now I am still getting everything up & running, but if you get back to me around Christmas, I might be able to help. I’m still tweaking my 3d scanner the way that I want it… but I still might be able to help!
