Every time you finish a Gundam model, you’re always left with the empty runners the parts were attached to. I’m just thinking “man, what a waste of good plastic” ^^;. You could probably make a HG 1/144 with those scraps! What’s with every company and their mom going eco-friendly these days, I wonder if Bandai will ever start a program (in Japan) where we can send in the runners for them to reuse and we get some sort of discount off our next purchase or something. I know some pro who would use these runners to cover seam lines by cutting a stick out, holding it over candle fire, then stretch it out to make it fine and thin and place it over the seam lines. As for me, I just use them for stirring rods and paint testers. Custom weapons have also floated in my head from time to time as well.
Do you do anything with your gunpla runners or just throw them away?
