      I'll just try to be careful during transformation. Last question, would you recommend I just brush on the enamel paint on to the hinge?

        It is what I did, but surely with a primer coat it would be more resistant, it depends on the skill and experience you have painting. All the best.

      That makes sense. Did you extend the hip portion down from the grill portion as to have easier access to painting them? The hinge is so close to the grill and chest I'd worry about getting it dirty. Or did you mask? I'm thinking of possibly using enamel paint to see if that stops it from scratching. Thanks!

        I masked it, but it's all a matter of seeing how it will be easier for you. surely enamel is a good option, but the pieces are very tight, they may rub anyway.

      Hey man, this is about a post you made from quite a while ago, but you painted the hinge on your TE-01 so that the hinges matched the rest of the skirt armor. I'm probably going to do the same thing but use enamel so that the paint is more resistant to scratching during transformation. Could you let me know how you were able to remove the hinge parts safely without breaking the figure? Would it be okay to use enamel?

        Hello, I painted them directly with Tamiya paint, I did not disassemble the pieces as they were pins. I suppose it can be disassembled but I don't know if it will be easy. The bad thing about these parts is that it is very possible that when transforming it, the pieces will rub and the paint will be damaged.

      Hi.

      I saw your message on the show z thread, this one in particular:

      "Are you going to change the shipping method for everyone? The one you use for Spain works very well."

      Are you from Spain? I am too and I would like to know your opinion/experiences buying figures from shops like showz and others from america, if you don't mind. We can talk in spanish.

      Regards.

        Hola, soy de Alicante, sin duda siendo de España la mejor opción para figuras de transformers de terceras compañías ahora mismo es ShowZ, tiene un muy buen precio y envía por Sinotrans, un sistema que tiene convenio con correos y así los paquetes no los paran en aduanas, lo malo es que sólo vale para los paquetes de menos de 2 kg.

        Y si hay cualquier problema con la figura, ShowZ lo soluciona bastante rápido. Pedir a tiendas americanas es lo que peor sale, porque además de que suelen ser más caras que las chinas, los paquetes de EEUU los suelen parar casi siempre en aduanas. Un saludo.
