I can never find anything bad to say about Simon and the e2046 staff. Once again their service was great. I recieved the kit in 3 days within the shipping date. The quality of the resin is very sharp. No details were damage in the casting process. None of the parts were broken. The kit itself seems pretty easy to assemble. It looks like the kit is plain and simple, but there are a lot of small pieces that make it more complex that what it seems. Great kit, quality, and service. Pleasure to buy from here.
I have ordered this garage kit as soon as it appear from E2046, and the kit has exceptional recast quality. Fast delivery (only about 2 days) and good packaging. Most parts of this garage kit is recast in high detail, and almost no air-bubble. Very very little seam lines, and perfect fitting in all joints. I guess I can always expect the best quality product and service from E2046. I will keep ordering as soon as I see another new FSS kit I like. Thank you once again, E2046.

RT1210 RGM-79C GM Kai Pre Order
This is actually my third kit from E2046, I just forgot to post about the other two. FAST shipping, really like the plastic boxes it's shipped in, and the parts are packed well. Nothing broken and a great mold....hardly any airholes. Pity it didn't come with decals...but I can live with that . Not sure on the paint job yet. I highly recommend the kit though, a nice kit in that "something different" range. Now, if only this one will come back in stock:RT1206 I will be a happy man.
RT1188 LED Mirage Version 3 Pre Order
I have received this order yesterday. The shipping and the service is good. But buying this kit late has cause some problems. This garage kit was released one and half years ago, and the resin quality in detail is still good. However, some of the clear resin parts have started to turn yellow. I have heard that some clear resin will turn in yellowish over time if not painted, and I guess this is happening to this kit. I guess this would not have happened if I buy this kit when it first release. It is fortunate the body armors are still ok, but the spear has turn yellow in some parts. I guess I have learnt my lesson to order clear resin garage kits as soon as they release. Once again, thanks E2046. There is nothing we can do to stop clear resin to turn yellow, I guess...
RT0472 The Rune Mastquer Siegfried In Stock
This is one mean looking robot. I haven't been buying much in the way of mecha in a while, but this is outstanding. This kit comes in over 50 parts and should stand around 23 cm tall. The wings alone are huge. I know that plastic could NEVER have done this bad boy justice. Dramatic, and well sculpted. Anything with this many parts will eba challenge to build. But this will be a welcome challenge, and fun too! It will look great done and will look good in every display.
RT0472 The Rune Mastquer Siegfried In Stock
Finally! It's here so I don't have to drool over the pics in the shop anymore. This one is TALL, folks. Will need a shelf on his own. Comes with a nice base (for balancing out his wings) and is very detailed. Once again: The photos don't do this fabulous kit any justice.
RT1046 Machine Mess AUGE Pre Order
After wanting this product for quite some time, I pre-ordered, and luckily, it was shipped to me. The casting is very good.. for the mostpart. There are some faded areas, such as the small tendrils under the shoulders. Some panels aren't as sharp as they could be, but in all honesty, this is one great casting. I still see the red marks from the mould on my kit. However, there are a few problems, some of them briefly mentioned above. However, one of the larger parts of the shoulders had what looked to be a chipped/broken part. I quickly contacted Chun and e2046.com service about this, and was HIGHLY dissapointed to learn that the workshop (not '46) refused to replace this part because of a bad mould. In my opinion, a bad mould should not even SEE production, and they had the audacity to send me a flawed part and refuse to replace it. In brief, I am -satisfied- with my kit. There are holes pre-drilled and ready for pinning, with notches and locking tabs ready to test fit quite easily. Most of the parts carry very sharp detail, and look to be an original. Especially where it matters - the back of the legs, the torso etc. The runes/ lettering on the helm is a bit faded, but nonetheless, they are noticeable. The kit was well packaged - thank you e2046 - but unlike the rest of my orders, this did not come in tupperware -but I guess that it was due to the size.

Well, I was very happy to recieve this kit, and most of the parts are superb in terms of casting. There are, as always, a share of imperfections on them. Such as a bit of crud in the recessed details in areas such as the legs. The lower torso and groin are very well casted. The horns that go on the helm have a small bit of misalignment problem. A very good recast, however, there are two dissapointing parts. Part 70 - the ribbons, and part 7 - the upper torso. The upper torso had thin parts, simply caused by large bubbles trying to surface, but never making it to the top. There are also deformities, where the recasters cut the part from the sprue - a big gouge exists. As well, at the front of the torso, only three of the four recesses have been successfully recasted. e2046.com said that they would replace this one part. As for part 70, the workshop feels as though there is no problem. And I? I feel as if this were a load of crock. The ribbons are smothery on their edges, their hinges, misaligned. They have bubbles, and one of the rubbons is shorter than all of the rest. That, and it suffers from a bad mould that allowed resin to leak between the natural seams at the joining of the ribbons, making it look like a small puddle of resin. Although this may be over-anal, after seeing my friend's original Phantom and holding very high standards for workshops that claim to put fourth High Quality Recasts - my last order (8407 and this) seems to go against the trend a bit. Yes, yes. There are some excellent parts which rival the original's casting. But then, once in a while, you find a dud in the pile, which doesn't seem to be even casted by the same workshop. And oh, then they refuse to replace the damned part. I much respect the fast and helpful customer service at '46.com, and I greatly thank Simon and Chun along with their support staff for answering my emails so quickly. I must also state that they, themselves (e2046.com) is not the worskshop, but are simply retailers. However, I feel as though I should be fourtright in the expression of my experiences so that others may make wise choices. Myself? Will I doubt coming to '46.com for a FSS resin kit in the future? Yes, I have to say I would - but I still would be willing. But my overall experience is still a pleasant one.

RT1327 Getter 2 Pre Order
An EXCELLENT sculpt and cast. Sharp details everywhere. Great bonus: It can be assembled in battle-stance or emerging from the ground. I guess, Fabian will settle for the latter variation. Will eat less shelf space. Now we need a Getter Poseidon to accompany this great figure.
RT1319 MS-06FZ Zaku FZ Conversion Kit Pre Order
can sum this up really quickly: If you like Zakus, you MUST get this conversion. Look at the price and the number of parts. Totally worth every penny. Since it's a recast of a B-Club, you know you won't be disappointed. My favorite parts, the axe and machine gun, really make this a winner. The resin looks good, as does the detail. You CAN'T go wrong!
