Megaman assembled by Jin-Saotome Megaman assembled by Jin-Saotome
Here he is, the Blue Bomber himself! It's Rockman, better known as Megaman in the states. This is the assembled Kotobukiya 1/10 scale full action plastic kit. It came much luke Gundam kits do, on plastic sprues. To get rid of the seams I had to drip a thin line of superglue over them and sand them with 350-->400-->600 and finally-->800 grit sandpaper. After that I buffed the plastic back to a shine with a soft cotton sock. That took a long time! Painting was fairly easy, stick all the pieces using blu-tak on the end of bamboo BBQ skewers and spraypaint the pieces according. I also added magnets in the hands and feet using the small disc ones from Gaussboys.com. This allows Megaman to hold his E-tank, hang/stand on metal surfaces!

I'm auctioning off my finished version this week too here! [link]

I just assembled and cleaned mine.
I didn't paint anything because it might get ruined.
Also, my E-tank got messed up because of the stickers.

Can you maybe do a short picture tutorial on how you got rid of all the seams? I think I might like to try it on some Gundam kits but I dunno if it'd be doable compared to the much more rounded and detailles surface of Megaman...
