I realized that I hadn’t done a Ghibli post in a while. Then Messy Nessy ran a post on the wonderful kits that Sankei produces for the Mama Aiuto gang at Studio Ghibli. How could I pass that up
Hobby Link Japan has good tutorial on how to put the Sankei kits together.
I also found these videos, which make building the kits look easy.
Sankei is essentially two companies, one to fulfill the museum and architectural model and the kit making business, which makes the Ghibli stuff and other things for hobby. It looks like the hobby business is growing. Check out the videos for how easily these kits go together.
Most of these kits are not to expensive and many could provide an afternoon of creativity and some thing nice to show for it for $20.00. Try them out.
