In response to this question (boy i havn't done to many postings on this ML
lately - to much StarCraft Brood War Battlenet gaming!) I would have to say the
Dengeki Hobby is definitly beating out Hobby Japan in terms of new kit and
Gundam kit/toy coverage/reviews. DK in my opinion have just as good if not
better modellers building kits for them (except for kit building GOD Max
Wantanabe). DK also has better diorama's and kitbasher models. And Finally it
has better (computer) illustrations and just graphic design wise (I am an Art
Director) it just plane "looks" cooler.

The only area that think HJ (I must state though that I have been a collector of
HJ for at least 4 years) beats out DH is in the "how to" department. And the
fact the HJ publishes those "MOOKS" and Gundam Weapons.

But ya know what I end up picking up both!
