Got your booty burger yet?
I saw a picture of an upcoming model awhile ago with a huge gauntlet weapon sort of like Architect but I didn't catch its name since I was browsing on break. Which one was that?
>>7583972Passing on this one, too fanservicey>>7583974Sophia Dragondress
>>7583972Got mine in last night. Will probably work on her this week when I get off work
>>7583972Her body looks too meaty
>>7583977Not as big as I thought I saw but thanks anon. I love me some big fist weapons.
based Pyramid is giving another chance to play the FAG events from last year. You get free Gourai, Stylett and Baze by logging in. They greet you with different phrases depending on the time of day or if it's your birthday. You can view them in 360º in the dressing room, weapons room and mid-battle. And unlike most gachashit mobage this one actually has fun gameplaySo yeah, play AGA
>>7584058So, I see that there is an english version and a PC version. Is there an English PC version?If so, I'm down.
>>7584114There is no english version. That was a fan translation that is almost a year out of date.
>>7584106nothing shitty about it man, it's cute, it's fun and it has FAGs in it>>7584114they made a ching chong version, the game is doing well enough so maybe they'll make an english one for our SEA fellas.Still you can play in jap, it's not hard to figure out menus and you can use an OCR app like google translate for the rest
>>7584058Who's the girl in Gourai's dream outfit?
>>7584170Sugumi, she's SOL Raptor's mastah in the gamehttps://youtu.be/cwWNZFL-klIhttps://youtu.be/BOpqL19d5XUhttps://wikiwiki.jp/alicegear/%E9%87%91%E6%BD%9F%E3%81%99%E3%81%90%E3%81%BF
>>7583972I might need to get this one.
>>7583972which one is this? I havent been following them since i got my chaos and pretty witch a while back (shes flat as a pancake, very disappointing)
>>7584204Are there any tittie monster FAGs though?
>>7584114For referencehttps://www.frontlinejp.net/2018/02/05/feature-alice-gear-aegis/https://www.frontlinejp.net/2019/06/04/alice-gear-aegis-pc-version-launched/This site seems to be the only english one to have coverage which isn't surface level clickbait trash
>>7584226This monstrous enough for you? There's always the option sets too, but following the topic of conversation, he was probably talking about butts.
Tony Taka × Max Factory's new plastic model series "Guilty Princess" announced at chink wonfeshttp://figsoku.net/blog-entry-157266.html
>>7584388for me, it's the short haired one
>>7584388>>7584390Knees need work
>>7583972She is on the way
>>7584388>>7584390I saw them on figma general but I feel confused. Is GSC bandwagoning model girls too?
Are those cheaper compared to figmas and SHF since they come unassembled and unpainted?
>>7584503Depends on the kit, but generally no.They are about the same price if it comes with full weapon sets.
I'm on the verge of paying 40 burger dollars for this maid uniform. am I getting ripped off?
>>7584667Overpriced as hell
>>7584667>>7584696>doll clothesabandon all hope ye who shop in the dollfags' domain, I wouldn't say ripped off though since that's probably the actual going rate
>>7583972I may have to because of the spare torso parts
>>7584233frame arms girls, not MD, dullard
Added more weapons to the kitbashed leftover parts from the Budget Ikazuchi... https://imgur.com/gallery/8xz54ob
>>7584882Sorry, I barely bother to draw the mental distinction.
>>7584388>>7584390I have no free space for more plastic waifu.
I want to get my first FAG/MD and I’ve never built model kits before but I’m into arts and crafts so not an utter ham hands. I don’t generally like the boxy designs of the older/simpler kits and I’ve been eyeing SOL Strike Raptor or ASRA Archer for MD even though they’re more complex. Before I drop a lot on this hobby, is there any QC issues with these lines like the joint breakage I’ve heard about? Should I go for something easier to build instead of those two, which might be too ambitious for a beginner like me? Oh, and most importantly, I really like the center girl in the OP, she looks like she has decent T and A but MD bodies all look the same and not as... shapely - any recs for ass tech without being a total tiddy monster?
>>7585165if a joint is too tight sand/shave it down so it doesn't feel like you're gonna break it every time you move it
>>7585165Hres has the best butt out of all my plastic girls, and the second best tiddies behind Archer.If you don't like her huge armor clusterfuck, she's available with a cool bike instead as well.
>>7585165newer MDs dont really have these problems, though the joints might still be a little tight. just get a nipper and some sand papers and you are good to go.
>>7585195Still sanded some joints on my Weiss because they were a bit too tight for my taste.
>>7585176>>7585205How do you know if its too tight? Are they forgiving enough to allow test fits then disassembly to sand/shave?
>>7585210Takes a bit of effort, but it's doable. You won't completely lock up a joint the second you put the parts together.
>>7585210really wouldnt recommend you disassembling themjust dont jam it all in and try rotating it
More cute girls
>>7585253>cute No not really
>>7585262C'mon don't be so strict. Set is fun and you can play around with the faceplates.Another girl of the line
>>7585253>>7585259>>7585262The life of a spiderfucker is suffering. I love spiders, but they are ALWAYS portrayed as these evil bitches that love bdsm and leather. If they're not full on femdom, it'll be yandere at best.Time to learn how to sculpt my own models.
>>7585270or buy the spider bitch and modify her
>>7585253Yep, I'm loving her more so than what Japan is giving us.
>>7585270How did this cliché started?
>>7585253>>7585259Looks pretty cool to me.
>>7585259>>7585288Would have been better with clear green parts imho
>>7585288Why do they have to use ugly green
>>7585280Spiders tend to tie things up, and in some cases the females violently murder the males.It's a natural fit.
>>7585280That's just how spiders are seen in fiction because so many people are creeped out by them. I'd love an herbivorous hippy girl spider (at least one species exists). Or a cute little fluffy loli jumping spider. Maybe a tomboy diving bell spider (complete with swimsuit tan! But she actually has to skinny dip for her diving bell to work properly)? I'm not normally into amazons either, but I'd even settle for a gladiator or bola spider. There's so much material to work with with spiders. But really what I want is a cuddly, sweet, gentle, nerdy spider that's into knitting. But no. It's always an evil bitch orb weaver into bdsm, leather, and femdom.
>>7585184Hres Bikini does look amazing, I love her face sculpt too (I don’t actually like moe anime style but in 3D it becomes a lot more charming). Choosing just one of these is difficult, there’s parts of each design I like but then also something that puts me off, like her bikini top. Baihu’s got a really nice chest too imo.>>7585231NTA who asked about disassembly but speaking of, how easy is it to disassemble after a test build?
>>7585270I'm not seeing the problem here aside from your shit taste?
>>7585280The most common spiders in real life trap things, tie them up, inject them with poison, and eat them by liquefying their insides. They also eat their males after sex. Seems pretty sadistic.
>>7585270Anon, there's a true housewife-tier flip-side to all that web-bondage.
>>7583972I recently did.Did a quick pastel shading on her skin, I still need to work on her clothes and limbs.
>>7586000>>7586003>>7586008>>7586012Cute spider. Where I get her?
>>7586132I think its is a pre release kit sold at wf chinayou can find the preorders on taobao
>>7586148I'm too casul for taobao can someone please link that spider girls po page? I'd really like to get her.
>>7584667Fucking want to make mine inno black glossy too. But i live in country with no model paint/ I did find in hobbystores some matte spraycans but they didnt hold on plastic well, and i can scratch it with a little effort. Is it normal for sprays? So i dont feel like buy some glossy sprays out there.
>>7586302>live in country with no model painthow is that even possible
>>7586302>I did find in hobbystores some matte spraycans but they didnt hold on plastic well, and i can scratch it with a little effort. Is it normal for sprays? So i dont feel like buy some glossy sprays out there.Prime it. the paint would hold much better. Some people claim success with just sanding the surface first then skipping to the paint. But primer is guaranteed to give you the results you want.>>7586318it's popped up here and in Gunpla general now and then, it's definitely possible.
>>7586346but hes able to get his hand on FAGs
anyone got pic related but with FAG?
>>7586396Paint has different regulations, being a hazardous liquid, depending on type.
>>7586148>>7586149>>7586150God fucking dammit I love this design. It's nigh impossible to get though, right? I tried looking for preorders a while ago.
>>7586396countries get retarded with regulations.
>>7586585its their first product so who knows. just gonna wait till it release and see how it goes.
>>7586585>>7586610I found this site with her available for preorder. Anyone know if they are trustworthy ?https://mobile.carousell.com/p/pre-order-snail-shell-gn-project-001-wolf-1-12-scale-frame-arms-girl-fag-fully-assembled-203772398/
>>7586585>>7586625Shop2000 GK-m has her and that’s a trustworthy shop I’ve used before.
>>7586149Those eye tampos don't look right.
>>7586646They've been sold out for months. I'm waiting for my shipping notification.
>>7586418Picco neemo usually works nicely with FAG. I don't have this one but others.
>>7586788>>7586418You need to check the sizes. S only will NOT work for a FAG, socks and hats for D will obviously not work for anything that isn't a Picco D, and mileage varies wildly for MD but you'll usually need an S/LL or M/LL for ones like Edelweiss and Archer. Alternatively just stick the head on a fucking Picco Neemo body or Sozai-chan, problem solved.
>>7586418I'm selling this and a variety of other picco neemo clothes currently if anyone is interested.
>>7586860Post what you got, I always like buying accessories.
>>7586874Here’s almost everything I have.
>>7586881Kinda interested in the dark green dress up top, and the pink sweater/polka dot skirt in the lower left. What are you thinking pricewise?
>>7586885I could do $15 for each of those plus shipping. I'm located in the US. If you email me your zipcode and country if you're international I can get you a shipping quote.
>>7586893k, lemme think it over for a lil bit. Thanks!
>>7586881Got a sundress or jumper not in that picture?
>>7586885I think I have that sweater+skirt, unless it just looks similar to mine, it's a good choice
>>7586902These are the rest of what I currently have for sale. I have some Assault/Custom Lily outfits I need to sort through as well.
>>7586881What is the size of bottom right sweater and skirt, and the white uniform in the middle?
Not proper photographs but I can't contain my joy and happiness in seeing the completed "Budget Ikazuchi - Poor Man's Heavy Weapon's Platform"... allow me to share a few quick photos for now...
>>7587004Now THIS is a weapon to surpass Metal Gear. Going to paint or do something with the markers to make them fit as actual boosters?
>>7587013I'll take proper photos later but this all for now...
>>7587016>apon to surpass Metal Gear. Going to paint or do something with the markers to make them fit asI'll replace them with proper Kotobukiya parts once they restock this August but for now, the Pentel-Pen Propellant Tanks will have to stay...
>>7586908The bottom right sweater and skirt is a picco neemo outfit. The uniform set is something i bought on mandarake. If I had to guess it was probably made for Busou Shinki by a circle that sells doll clothes at events like wonfes and ak garden. If anyone's seriously interested I can model if some of the kits figures and dolls I own to help give a better idea of the fit. Also, I'd like to thank everyone for their interest in the clothing but please send further inquiries to my email. I feel bad using up all these posts itt.
>>7587004I'm glad you're happy, but honestly I don't see the appeal. It just looks like a huge mess to me.
>>7585262might get her, her face looks pretty hentai milfy.
>>7584302Is that Ludens?
>>7587054Yeah, we got the reveal at an earlier event.
>>7587032Sent you an email.
>>7585270Check out lansane.
>>7587071>Not the super fluffy ushi-oniThere is a good bunch of cute art of her learning how to cook and do household things.
Did you guys assembly first then top coat or diassembly then top coat?
>>7587063Hmm, they really moe-fied the face. Dunno if I'm happy with that or not.Did Shinkawa draw this?
>>7587272Partial assembly then topcoat depending on the part. You gotta just play it by ear as necessary, like does this piece have clear parts that require removal first, will I need to mask joints or pegs, etc.
>>7586901Would that Gundam cape work on Fags or MDs?
>>7587471It's a RG, so it's roughly the same size, but you could just wait for the MSG capes
>>7587474>MSG capesIs this a real thing that's coming? Are there any pics?
>>7586901RG Crossbone is smol, and the ABC Mantle is made of rigid panes of PS so the curve of it is molded to fit the torso block and wouldn't sit perfectly on FA Girl. It also has a pair of tabs to lock itself into place on the 'collar'.The collar hole will work, but it won't sit 100% securely or lock into place, and the contours are different.
>>7587474Alternatively you could borrow Figma Sinon's cape, it fits a Shinki so it'd fit a FA Girl.
>>7587488I bet it'll look awful without the fancy paintjob
>>7587604Just matte coat it and rub some black paint around the edge
>>7587604All models look awful without a proper paintjob you fucking snapshitter.
>>7587605Yeah but there's still shading and stuff to do. >>7587606>implyingSuck off a donkey, toxic /v/ermin
>>7587609Just run a black marker along the hem and smudge/smear it, it should look a little rough and messy before you topcoat
>>7587615Well, if you're going light on paint, black marker can do a lot for generating artificial smudges and stains.
>>7585210The joints are typically made of three parts: the outer ring, the inner ring, and then a small peg on the third part. The actual joint is only between the outer ring and inner ring, so you can test the joint tightness before completing the assembly.
>>7586625That's a Singapore version of Craigslist. It's known as Carou-hell for a reason
>>7587729when painting and topcoating, sand before (and smooth it down after), and primer is highly recommended
>>7587762breakage sometimes due to damage from certain kinds of paint or joints not masked properly during painting.
>>7587769he still got nub marks on this so I doubt its because of paint or top coat
>>7587774maybe a flaw in that particular runner post-injection?
>>7587788he probably jammed it to hard when putting it in, but cant see stress mark cause its all white
>>7587302They showed off a battle mask faceplate too.
>>7587488I'm a little scared of how hard my dick is right now.
>>7588121That looks like shit.
>>7587302Ludens needs a 1/1 scale gf
>>7588139I'd like to see you try.
>>7588153I don't bother because I'm self-aware enough to know it would turn out like shit.
>>7588156you never know
>>7588153Are you fucking twelve?
>>7588139This.Handpainting is a godly skill that 99.9% people suck nigger balls at. Same Kaede would look lovely airbrushed.>>7588153>you cant say that food tastes like shit unless you're a chef
>>7588139Im in agreement, he paint is as bad as bring arts 2b
>>7588172>you cant say that movie is trash unless you're a director>you cant say that table is crooked unless you're a furniture maker>you cant say your nigga ass is gay unless you're a proctologistoh wait
>>7588185to judge a meal one must not simply eat a potato
>>7588167It all depends on knowing the right kind of paint to use. Don't handbrush with paint meant for airbrushes, don't use cheap craft store acrylics, and don't use artists' acrylics because artists want their brushstrokes to show up on canvas. In my experience, I've found that Testors matte paints -- both enamel and acrylic -- are good for handbrushing because they're self-leveling. I haven't yet found a good solution for handbrushing gloss paints; I'll have to try thinning them more.
>>7588195So you're saying rather than just look a photo the creator posted themselves, we have to take a trip to his house and physically examine the doll in real life?
>>7588222I would examine the doll in real life...
>>7588195I mean... if you're served a potato as a meal, then yes, one must simply eat the potato to judge it.
>>7588706Technically you can judge the presentation as well. Plating is a pretty important factor in the enjoyment of a dish. Would you want to eat a pile of mashed potatoes that looked exactly like diarrhea even if it tasted like the most heavenly mashed potatoes in the world?
>>7588709>not eat food that looks like runny shitI think you're grossly underestimating the worldwide popularity of curry which does taste great in all it's various iterations, but sure does look like literal crap most of the time.
>>7588709>Would you want to eat a pile of mashed potatoes that looked exactly like diarrhea even if it tasted like the most heavenly mashed potatoes in the world?I mean, yeah. I might take a bit of convincing, but food looks funny sometimes.
>>7588720That's why I said "exactly like diarrhea". Curry only looks kind of like diarrhea.
>>7588772>exactly like diarrheaWhich brings us back to >>7588121Poor Kaede, she deserved better.
>>7588857I like it
>>7588910That's because you're probably a shiteater.
Ah boy here we go again
>>7589172This guy seems to be posing her non-stop hope she'll be taking a long break of posing.
>>7589172Is this gore?
>>7589172That one's easily replaced plus you can get metal ones though
>>7589180the joke is he broke the leg yesterday>>7587729
>>7589172The ABS hip joint is still too brittle, thankfully her POM replacement for this piece is actually pretty good.
>>7589259How would you repair this waist joint?
>>7589273Modify a spare Nendoroid neck joint and seal it into place with putty
>>7587729>>7589172>>7589259He needs double hand transplant, stat.>inb4 it's Koto's faultIt may sound shocking but most people manage to build and pose MDs without damaging them.
>>7588756i cant tell you how excited i am for this kit.
>>7587729>>7589172>>7589259Now I'm worried, is it his fault by moving her too much for the photos or are those the kit fault?
>>7589172>>7589259>>7587729Is this a fetish thing?
>>7589426he's being deliberately careless
>>7589430>>7589430more likely he stopped caring after he broke it the first time and proceeded to just hamhand it
>>7589259Y'know what, at this point, maybe we have to assume that this guy happens to like gore?
>>7589438Huh well I can see someone getting off to that. Got a bit of a whychub myself too for a while here.
>playing with model kitsRetards.
>>7589273Just bloody buy thin cement. That stuff melts the abs and you can weld broken parts back together easily.
>>7589525it wouldnt hold
>>7589454How does this even happen
>>7589611How do you pin something 1mm thin?
>>7589619With a pin thinner than 1mm, dipshit.
>>7589538Something about sadism, defilement and abuse
How good is Altlene Viola? Think I might get her but at always 120+ I'm not too sure.
>>7583963Was browsing the catalog and saw this pic - which figures/kits are in this shot?
>>7589927I own normal Altlene and she's a pretty nice figure even if the armor's a little bulky and mine's pretty old so her midsection joint is a bit wobbly.
>>7590008From L-R, Megami Device Sol Hornet, Dark Advent Dragondress Sophia, chitocerium LXXVIII-platinum.
>>7590024Oh, and all three are kits, not figures. And Sophia is a lil bit on the lewd side.
>>7590023How much is normal Altlene generally compared to Viola?
>>7590026Only if you got the DX version.
>>7589259Isn’t this joint one of the brass joints available?

>>7590725wait a second >>7584058 said Gourai and others are free, why is there a gacha for her?
>>7590728You get the 3 stars for free, the 4 stars are gacha.
>>7590731oh yeah, she's in my inbox.
>>7590725Which VPN did you use?
>>7590727>f/go, gbf and gfl
>>75907283-star versions are free. Gourai is in your gifts, the other two will come later. There is a 4-star version that has a more outfitted appearance and will have enough cost to equip all of her upgraded motif weapons. There is no difference in office lines between the rarities but if you really want to main someone you should try to get their 4-star.You can ask more questions in >>>/jp/mbgg where some loser recently made a detailed guide.>>7590742You only need a vpn for the DMM version's emulator, which you can't reroll on.
>>7590746I just need to log on to the PC version to make sure I get the campaign rewards.
>>7590750Oh right. For reference, TunnelBear has about 3 exits in Japan but the two most common ones you'll end up connecting to are all hogged up by other weebs and chinks, so they time out all the time.
Is anyone going to be attending AK-Garden 16 in tokyo? I know it's a long shot, but I'm trying to get my hands on 2 sets of these jugs for moo-archer and fox-archer. The artist is likely busy with the con, and hasn't responded to my questions about shipping internationally.Their twitter handle is @DZG31
>>7590986What sweater is that? I want it for my mega titty archer
>>7591002all of those things are very truebut so so worth it
>>7590008Fun trivia fact to go with them is the person who took that photo is the creator of the base body design they all share. Different lines, different companies, but they are essentially sisters when it comes to the body engineering.
>>7591033moo-archer needs them!
>>7590725I dont speak moon rabbit so im not going to bother.
It's been a while since I did something like this but... Frame Arms Girl Materia Sisters in Battle. I think I messed up the settings but rather than re-taking the shot, I opted to see how can I save a terrible photo via post process... it turned out somewhat OK... Background is 3D and heavily butchered in Photochop. Used an Ancient and semi-broken Nikon D3100 for this shot.Uploaded bigger photo here...https://imgur.com/gallery/vjLw916

>>7591309There it is. I was trying something like 定 for the bottom right.
>>7590032I think she roughly goes for 80-100 bucks? It's been a few years since I got mine and like I said, she wasn't in great shape so the price might've been lower on her.
Does anyone have an Alastore Crow shinki they can show off a little? The big bulky armor and wings are some cool shit.
>>7585748happen to have any guides on how to make pastel shading on skin look good?
>>7591817Why are you asking that guy when he clearly failed at the look good part?
>>7591301Thx man, I didn't expect great stuff from the decal but I was curious what was in there. I'll see if I can put something together with this info
I'm not a plamo/modeling guy, but I adore a few of the Megami Device girls. How hard are they to make them look good?
>>7591903>I'm not a plamo/modeling guy>How hard are they to make them look goodFor you? Infinitely hard. Come back when you are a plamo guy,
>>7591903Might want to practice on some cheap gunpla
>>7591240>>7591301Shit, sorry. Meant to post this earlier but I forgot.

>>7592067>playing like a third rated citizen Why do you do this to yourself?
>>7591107not bad, but some criticism: girls look a tad too big compared to the pillars, missing shadows considering the light, edges a bit too sharp. All should be easily fixable if you kept a file with the layers separate.Still better than my pics tho ;_;
>>7591925I’m new to plamo too and I just bought 3 of these things because they look so damn good. I know I’ll make some mistakes but I hope I have fun along the way, wish me luck lads.
>>7592074Distance to the pillars could be corrected by just blurring them a little. They are too crisp and in-focus for something that appears to be very large and distant. Looking at the feet, the perspective looks good on the left one, but wrong on the right one. Her feet are side-by-side and the sole is completely flat, whereas we are seeing the ground plane so her feet should be staggered and rounded so we can see the shape of the sole. This is quite a bit harder to fix, I'd say in the future just keep an eye on stuff like this when trying to match a photo to a render.Overall not bad though, the compositing is generally well done. Like the other anon said, watch your edges, they're a little too crisp and need a little softening to blend with your background.
>>7592084based positive outlook anon
Do you guys have templates for clothes for mine?
made a chair
When does this come out again?
>>7591903>>7591981No you really need to buy some cheap shitty gunplaYou don't need to be an ebic plamaster who can paint actual literal life and soul into your girls as long as you have fun and like the result, but If you've never assembled plastic before you need to get a feel for denubbing/sanding/etc. so you don't wind up gouging or beveling your nice models. Everyone fucks up something fierce the first couple of times.hi-mock is like 9 dollars from literally anywhere, grandpappy gandamu is also like 10, I think they just give away IBO kits at this point
>>7592427>as long as you have fun and like the resultaaand as long as you never show it to anyoneif on the other hand you want to be able to show off your work and expect not to be tarred and feathered you do need to git reasonably gud
>>7592218Thanks for the link, but I wanted to try and make the clothes myself.
>>7592492I mean the hornet you posted has no panel lining, top coating, seam welding, or detail painting, only a sticker and some glassesAs long as it's not total ass it's not really a big deal
>>7583963*blocks your path*
>>7592540I'm pretty sure it was a WIP showing off just the glasses but if I were to post that as a finished build I would expect to get blasted for all the things you listed.
>>7591903>How hard are they to make them look good?Right out the box unless its hornet or grapple, in which case you must paint them in the superior white skin color. The older models require some sanding to make the pieces fit and not break due to stress on the material.
>>7592541Ain't going to be hard to step under her if she blocks my path like that.
>>7592860>underHow... How short are you?
>>7592824>clearly taking the piss>using "cringe" ironically or otherwiseSubhuman ledditor
>>7592886she's sideways, he has the whole width of the floorwall to limbo under her
I got the Strike Raptor but I want to change the eye color, is my only option wiping the face and using a new decal? If it is, how can I remove the original face without damaging the plastic? I’ve got some isopropyl alcohol but read that will fuck up some types of plastic (not sure which ones).
>>7593299the alcohol will do fine
>>7592541>white roadrunnerBased strayan.
>>7593299Koto themselves recommend mineral spirits.
>>7593612so where do you get one
>>7593612is this >>7589259>>7589172? Is she finally getting the upgrade?
>>7593612Next brass joint?When will it be available?
>>7593637Someone needs to make the entire Machineca body in bronze and get it over with.
Do you ever wonder what your FAGs and Shinkis are doing when you're gone?
>>7593612What kit is this? I like her hair and face.
>>7593702Megami Device Bullet knights launcher
>>7593692Nothing because they're not alive.
>>7593692Probably being unhappy that they can't open the bit boxes themselves and otherwise causing mischief.
>>7593703Ah, damn. It's pricey, I don't really care for the armor, and I have no room to display that fuck-huge weapon. It's pain to want only the figure itself.
Why doesn't Kotobukiya sell individual blank face plates or spare joints? GSC would benefit from doing this for figmas but they don't do it either, yet model kits are made to be customized so is it absurdly unprofitable or do they just not give a fuck?
>>7593747They make more money by making you buy a whole kit, stupid.
>>7593747>Spare jointsthey sell wrist joints, which are the only thing you're likely to break>Blank face platesHope you got the kotoshop bonus. Also you can just remove the printed eyes yourself.Other than that, just buy and cannibalize a bunch of letizia.
>>7593612The brass suits her.
>>7593692Probably something like this...
I discovered this thread yesterday and have been interested in getting into these ever since, but, after searching around the Internet and Yahoo! Auctions, I have no idea where to start. What's the cheapest way to get into it? What should I buy first?
>>7594207>Yahoo! Auctionswhere do you live?innocentia is a good start
>>7594207The easiest ones to get your hands on nowadays are all plamo kits, so if you have any experience building gunpla I'd say get one of the Architect recolors or a Roadrunner. They're on the more affordable side and their engineering holds up fairly well even compared to more modern releases.
>>7594212US, but I use Buyee to buy Japanese stuff through Yahoo. I was leaning towards that one since I keep seeing it, but I was hoping that there were cheaping options for a beginner.>>7594214Thanks, I'll check those out.
>>7594207Y!J is pretty unnecessary unless you want a specialty kit (or an actual shinki), since FAGS/MD tend to have semi-regular reruns so they're either buyable first hand or on mandarake/amiami used for a good price1999 just restocked a lot of the FAG models if you want to look it over
>>7593748I'm not stupid, YOU are!
So when is Lancer and improved Bestlard actually coming out? I keep eyeing my email for the payment request in anticipation.
>>7594477Lancer is dropping on the 19th as is the horse/mecha/birb MSG unit. Asselard may be as well. Try checking Koto's site rather than waiting with bated breath.
>>7594207>Where to buyhttps://www.1999.co.jp/eng/https://hlj.com/https://www.amiami.com/eng/These 3 are my main.I find 1999 and HLJ to be better because amiami tends to charge more for shipping. But, amiami has pre-owned stuff and if the item condition is B+ or higher (only for plamo stuff), then it's pretty close to new so you might want to look into that.>What to buyFor FAGs, I recommend Gourai 2.0.It has much better engineering than the othersFor MDs, either Asura girls, or Edelweiss.
>>7593692criticizing my life choices
>>7594207I've been using amiami for the kits and mandarake for shinkis.
Are there any anon who can into photoshop or other picture edit programm?How about making full list of actual and upcoming FAG, MD and badnai grils for newcomers? Like one from figmathread?
>>7594207For beginner and first kit i recommend megami device line. Cheapest of them are magical girl and witch. Preowned A(B+)/B from amiami are about 2500-3000 yen without shipping. But best choice atm will be edelweiss. Also if you try and like it - then preorder sol hornet (first from oppic). She will be rerelesed in near future.
Anyone know where I can find templates, or patterns to make stuff like this? I would appreciate it! It be nice if they are free, but I can pay for them too. So any website would be great.
>>7594869There’s some Japanese books on making clothes for Obitsu11 dolls. You’d jusr have to make some adjustments for the patterns to fit FAGs, MDs, because Obitsu11 are shorter and stockier.
>>7594207>What's the cheapest way to get into it?Buy the cheapest kits? You'll end up buying the expensive ones later due to the slippery slope effect.
