*READ THE GUIDE*

For those new to gunpla/plamo or even just new to this thread; please read the guide. Please read it before asking questions, as there is a chance it has already been answered there.

For those unfamiliar, "plamo" is a shortened form of "plastic model". If it's made of plastic, someone can probably help you here!
If you're new, you're gonna fuck up. Don't worry! If you're experienced, don't make the new people worry!

>Why won't anyone answer my question?
Try being specific, especially about your materials and process. Post images whenever possible; even if the kit/part looks bad, you are more likely to get help posting images.

>Why are my pictures sideways?
4chan strips EXIF data from images when they're uploaded to the website from your phone, including the orientation display tag. To solve this, save your images out separately, or use an app that will rotate and save the image itself for you.

Usually I'd say sure, but I remember you starting the Guncannon even before IGBX was decided on as the theme and asking it you could enter it then. It'd feel pretty biased allowing an entry 6+ months of worktime while everyone else got only 3, so in this case I'd say you gotta start something new.

>play with your gundams this much to the point of stress marks
desu some gunpla are engineered so flawed that you don't even need to play with or pose them for the stress marks to appear like pic related (not mine but forgot which japanese blog I got it from). The same stress marks appear on the Tryon III since they're from the same mould.

The worst one are the white parts that crack in half due to pressure that you only realize after it's too late and it's already happened. Like the wrists of the Clanche for example or the BS FP, SBS PW, HGCE Strike bicep parts.

Also did you guys know those same bicep parts have moulding defects but bandai never issued a recall for them?
>>

>>17230007
pic related was engineered in a way that sanding the part would completely kill the friction it needed to stay stable. I kinda wish they adapted the old design of the 1990s 144 ZZ wing binder shields instead. That would've been easier to sand and retighten.

How do I not fuck up waterslides like the idiot I am? I'm soaking the decals for 30-40 seconds (room temperature) and then I slide them on with a q-tip. I'm making sure to squeeze out air bubbles and remove any remaining moisture.

They stick totally fine when I first apply them, but I come back a few hours later and they look like pic related, ready to peel off at the slightest touch. What am I doing wrong?
>>
>>17230046

Not using micro sol etc.
>>
>>17230046
You need to apply mark softer, which softens the decal and has it conform to the piece stronger. Check out Funaka's guide in the OP, page 112.
>>
>>17230007
>because i don't force my shit together. if there's any sign of strain during fitting i just sand the parts as needed.
The ones circled red in pic related were engineered terribly. The outward force from the balljoint in the hand causes severe stress on the already thin & flimsy plastic on the wrist that gives the balljoint it's supposed grip in the first place as soon as it's assembled.

>inb4 then sand it you mongoloid
Lets say you sand the ball joint... That would relieve some stress sure, but that would also leave the hand limp and loose, even if you only sand it a little. Because the whole thing is reliant on the thickness of the balljoint itself to apply enough pressure on the polycap & fragile wrist part to give it a stable grip. It's a catch-22. You sand it, it'll spaghetti - you don't it stays stable but inevitably breaks eventually.

The only solution I found was to scratch build an entirely thicker wrist part or reinforce the original with thicker plaplate instead, since sanding the already thin & brittle plastic of the priginal wrist defeats the purpose. And shaving the polycap the balljoint attaches to only either limps the hand or makes the wrist part unable to attach firmly to the arm itself.

Newbie Gaylord here. I read through so many forums and only got unclear and different information when it comes to panel lining with enamel paint.
I have a bottle of Tamiya Panel Line accent color. Now some people say it is safe to use it on my gunplas just as is. But then other people say that putting on a gloss topcoat first is absolutely mandatory because the enamel will eat through the plastic. Fine, but I find it weird that there are quite a few people who use it without gloss coating it first that don't report any issues. I really don't want to waste any extra money because I am student poorfag right now. Is using tamiya accent color on my gunpla for panel lining and then coating it with a matte top coat safe or am I playing with fire here?
>>
>>17230059
>>17230055
I read a few guides/videos that implied mark setter/softer were optional. Guess not. Thanks anon.
>>
>>17230065

It's a risk no matter what. It's less risky if you gloss coat it or make sure to minimize the time there's wet panel was on the pieces. For example, don't use it on something that is snapped together because if it decides to go down the crevice it will stay active for a long time.

>prevent stress marks on a kit from getting worse before it breaks
There's no preventing it. Some kits are just engineered really flimsy due to making it look anime accurate and stuff like that.

>I'd rather know how to fix it if I can
That situation is entirely dependent. Each part breaks slightly differently than others and each way to fix it is also different. Some techniques work for others, some don't.

- Mostly use plastic cement instead of super-glue since plastic cement melts the pieces together making the bond stronger but not as strong as it was new.
- Plastic cement (Thick) is for repairs on PS type plastic, (Thin) is only usually used on seam welding, (ABS) is specifically used for ABS type plastic repairs.
- Use brass rods to reinforce joints and any thick parts that move or transform.
- For the thin & small parts: If the damage is major, either scratch build a new one, or recast. If it's minor, use an applicator like an insulin syringe to inject appropriate type of Plastic Cement into a part if it's not completely snapped in two yet. Like cracks and stuff. Press and hold FIRMLY together for about 15 mins safety, then let dry for a week or so to be safe. Afterwards shave excess melded plastic.

>I've also been meaning to recolor some clear blue parts yellow. Is that also possible and how?
Keep in mind for clear parts you have to use light refraction instead of color paint mixing, so no, you cannot repaint a clear blue piece clear yellow and have it show up as clear yellow. Use your brain, anon.

What you CAN do however is recast the part using clear, colorless resin, and then paint those recasted parts clear yellow. That will give you the desired color.

I refuse to wait on the reprint anymore, does anyone know of any kits that have little subarm pincers for holding extra weaponry like the Skull Weapon and Psycho Zaku have? Don't really want to get a whole kit just for two subarms, but if it comes down to it I might and just do something else with the Psycho Zaku. Explicitly looking to avoid hardpoint mounted weaponry, I want the subarms to hold them.

So I recently finished putting together my third model, a Xenoblade 2 - Siren from Kotobukiya. I'm still pretty new to this.
Everything looked good enough when I finished putting it together but one day later I noticed that some of these long decals starting peeling off from the blades, I tried re applying water and they seemed to stick well again but after a couple of hours same thing happened. I think I may have taken too long putting these long decals in the right place the first time, maybe I moved them around too much and the glue spread too much of something.
Is there some good way to re-glue these decals? Otherwise I guess I will just have to take them all away.

Are these water slides or stickers?
If they’re water slides I’d try using some softer and setter to melt it into the plastic.
Also note that it’s usually a good idea to gloss coat the part before applying water slides so that they have a nice uniformly smooth surface to stick to with no air pockets.

Welp, there goes that dream about Destiny Impulse.

The only differences between Impulse and Destiny Impulse are the forearms, with those armour parts that are different to the regular Destiny's and could easily be attached to the HG Impulse's shield hardpoints, and the Destiny's-type backpack, which could well end up using the same connectors given how simple they are

Like people have said before order some bottled panel liner (either GSI or Tamiya), but if you want something quick just go to any Michaels or art supply store near you and get a set of these.

>i live in a quite restricted area and don't have access to the types of paint/topcoats you guys do
Even if you live in eastern europe or something there should be an alternative to Tamiya or Testors sprays available. I don't know many european brands but Humbrol's readily available in the UK

Guys what do you think about the upcoming hazel II kit? i did miss on the original HG woundwort but the preorder from samueldecal ends in these days but it will turn out to be "MG ammount of money" for my location (hard to get pbandai stuff) and i don't really know if it's worth it for a small ms like that. It's quite unique and i'd love to have more "strange" gundams in my displaycase
>>
>>17232995
It's only worth it if you're willing to make the commitment to get one. Plus this kit is the same woundwort parts but in titans colors and an extra gun for it.
>>
>>17232995
Check Bandai Online, that is where I pre-ordered this kit from, might be cheaper for you.

While it's not really as much of a piece of shit as angry mcautist would like you to believe:

>The torso does have trouble swiveling side to side thanks to her giant cock sub-arm being in the way of her abdomen panel in MS Mode.
>Her sex thighs have limited swivel thanks to the MA mode's square thigh design and transformation engineering. Probably for stability. Pretty stable when standing though considering it's tiny skinny feet support and giant weapon twice her size. Supporting all that and her huge petticoat style ass, it's amazing it can stand without an action base.
>That and the MA mode is animation inaccurate in the sense that the sub-arm cock hangs too low because it can't tilt forward enough thanks to being a partsforming HG.

Do we know if Bandai is going to release more 00 MGs? Or is it just going to be Dynames? I need more non-Exia 00 kits in my life, but I don't want to buy those ancient HGs if they're just gonna hit us with new MGs soon.
>>
>>17234659
I doubt they would just release the Dynames and nothing else.
I’m hoping for that MG Virtue
>>
>>17234659
Decent chance we'll get a few more of the line, but then again nothing is too certain. Dynames was the next most popular by a fairly large margin, and unlike the Wing gundams I don't think the Virtue and Kyrios will reuse nearly as many parts.

As somebody who bought the Virtue/Nidalelelelelelele 1/100, its okay. Lots of extra parts for kitbashing, but honestly I'd like an MG to paint and doll up all pretty.
>>
>>17230126
Did he manhandle this kit too? Jesus.
>>
>>17235038
Is it that bad? Any specifics on what's wrong with it? I was planning on getting one...
>>
>>17235172

Pros:
Detailed for what it's worth
Gimmicks are cool
No polycaps
Solid construction
Gun has a muzzle break instead of a smooth breach which is not present on the lineart.

Cons:
Molded cheaply (lots of mold spill forcing more cleanup)
Stress marks galore
Design takes a few artistic liberties which detract from the original design imo (skirt plates, the head, monoeye looks like trash, shoulder spikes are weird, the entire back skirt has a weird not-hatch for literally nothing)
Because of the wonky injections some connections are either too loose or too tight

6/10 kit, can be easily turned into a 8 if you're a competent modeller

4/10 if you're an OOB builder because it's not gonna look very pretty without major modifications.

Get it because it's cheap! 40CAD for mine and it's a fun little project to make a monster machine out of. I enjoy the refurbishing.

Is there someone who lives in germany in this general? Do you import gunpla from japan or are the local retailers, where it's cheaper to order from?
>>
>>17235330

I can give you my scandi point of view: import or buy from hobbyfrontline. Amazon tends to be pretty bad but perhaps you get more free shipping deals as you have a dedicated site for your country.
>>
>>17235330
Some sites do free shipping on orders over $100 so you could just wait til there's enough kits that you want to order all at once
>>
>>17235605

Care to give any examples?
>>

>>

One or two kits? Local retailers because of how customs and shipping fees work. Bulk? Overseas.

>>17235535

>>17235605
>>17235745

>>
>>17234325
Excuse me for forget its tr-5 instead of tr-6, and being a variant of the original gaplant means it still maintains the gaplant designation, with the Hrairoo designation appended, but way to start swinging that huge vocab of yours
>>
>>17235759
I'm right across the border in the NL and I used to use gundam-market nl for my first few kits, and they only cost 3 - 5 euros more than if I had shipped in the HG kits myself (at the added bonus of arriving in a few days), but their MG kits had considerable markups. Eventually I got into bulk shipping and would get from amiami or used/older kits from Mandarake (who'd sometimes mark it down or as a gift to get past customs even without me asking).

In the end it's up to you to decide what's best for you by calculating how much it'll cost for what you want to ship in from overseas (taking into account your preferred form of shipping, your countries customs fees) vs a local place.
