>I can't buy it right now, but is this kit any good?

At least it is easier to balance than the 1/100 scale kit.

Use packing foam like the ones used to ship VCRs and other home appliances
or electronics in. Heat is a good molding method.

>I was think of papermache for rocks and stuff, but
>what about trees and water?

Use the foam for water. As for trees, the toy train shops sell these, or
you can make your own with scratch parts sold in hobby stores.

A battle scared mecha, eh? What kind of running and cowardly pose did you
put them in?

>I was thinking of the new Turn A
>Kapool impaling a Flat (wicked grin).

Hmm, I don't remember seeing the Flat in Turn A after the first episode,
where it was used as a smuggling transport... maybe against a Sumo would be
more like it.
