>>7673829>Wonder Festival 2019, no sign of Busou Shinki. Line appears cancelled until further notice It keeps happening!
>>7673845There wasn't even a new MD conversion announced. Are we really still "friends"?
>>7673845Damn it.I wanted that fucking Cheshire Cat.
>>7673829>Dead toyline and friends generalWhy do you boomer OP insisting on calling it BS?! Even the image thread is no longer BS.
>>7673915There's nothing wrong with keeping the name a reference to Busou Shinki purely for legacy reasons, even though the line is dead and Konami has almost certainly pulled out of the revival. A lot of the current mecha musume boom owes thanks to Busou Shinki being created and then suddenly cancelled, followed by Koto taking the risk of trying to fill the market void left behind and achieving such smashing success that many other companies have joined in. In a twisted way, without Konami being such dicks, we might not have FAGs or DTAs, and we definitely wouldn't have MDs or all the other sister lines.
>>7673915Tradition. Shinkis started the tiny robogirl craze and are still welcome here.
>>7673915You only started using boomer when the children from reddit spammed their latest wojak variant. You should kill yourself for the good of 4chan.
>>7673933>>7673936>muh legacyJust join the bionicle autists
>>7673938Never been on reddit, but sounds like you know a lot about that place:^)
>>7673867Guess we'll have to wait for GSC for the small bodies.
>>7673862No, i hate you guys because you all cant clean your nubs properly
>>7673949>GSCThose look great but considering how cancel happy those faggots are these day I won't hold my breath.
>>7673915Still says Shinki on the MD boxes
I'm really digging best girl and her crazy weapons and soft plastic leather outfit. What other AGA girls would probably work better as figmas rather than kits? I need more and there are a good bunch of qts in AGA.Also for those curious she works with all the other lines. I swapped out her legs to the engines from my Night Asuka shinki and is listed as being compatible with Kaede's kit already.
>>7674042Only on one of them so far.
>>7674047I don't see anything with bionicle written on the outside of a box. its funny how they feel the need to shit up the box with fifty generals while these thread has been going strong for over a decade.
>>7674043>What other AGA girls would probably work better as figmas rather than kits?Anyone of them that is too colorful for just molded parts and have to rely on water decals/stickers.
>>7673845I think it's delayed until the game's release which Konami keeps lagging on. There was talk about wanting the kits to coincide with the game and they kinda jumped the gun with releasing Edelweiss.
>>7674043>This one? I dont like figmas because they are smaller than mds.
>>7674081There's no page or anything of that yet right?
>>7674097I really like how she has a shuttle and booster style however unfitting it might be. Arnval Mk2 Tempesta is wonderful though.
>>7674549Within the next year or two, at this rate. And don't call me surely.
>>7674097Never really cared, MKI Strarf and Arnval werent interesting designs.
Who asked for this???
>>7674097Forget about these.We need MK.2s!!
>>7674702Me as well but not like this... I want this to be a Crossframe Girl instead of MD...
>>7674702>>7674745I think this will be like the crossframes. It says in the box that next wonfest we will see the first prototype. That eva shaking hands is just for show.
>>7674870Damn thats some smooth stopmotion
>>7674097A proper Arnval model kit, where you also have to assemble her body! This is great! And Strarf, too? Double awesome!
>>7675169This was from many years ago, when Koto first floated working with Konami. They were quietly abandoned in favor of new kits when the actual Shinki crossover was announced, and now that's seemingly been canned too, leaving Edelweiss as the only actual crossover product that ever came out.
>>7675227What a shame, I was hoping it'd at least last long enough for BLADE's new girl to get her kit.
>>7674702She needs to look like either shinji or his mom. Or better yet, both as possible options.
>>7675259The Unit-00 one would just be Rei.
>>7675238They could just reuse sylphy and md parts and release it another way, hopefully
Ayame balances great.
>>7673936>Shinkis started the tiny robogirl crazeMS Girls date back to the 80s as a concept and even had a few model kits released. It's too bad the attempt to restart the line in the ~2010s failed hard.
>>7675568>WolfReminds me, I never got an email from ohmyprimus after doing the first preorder lock in payment. First email even says he'll send a follow up for the full purchase but I've never gotten anything.
>>7675659might be late august for you
>>7675633I want a barbatos
>>7675676I wanted a White BBW Neo Zeong...
>>7675633I think they might try to bring it back, I've seen on taghobby new artwork for these which keep getting updated.>>https://www.taghobby.com/archives/288430
>>7675676Kimaris Trooper, the world needs more centaur mecha.
>>7675633And in terms of doll-sized robots, Hand Maid May and Angelic Layer both came out 5 years before the first Shinki. Hoihoisan did customizeable tiny robot girls in 2003, and Gotcha Force had fighting toy-sized mecha girls in video game that same year. Busou Shinki wasn't some huge pioneer of the genre, they're just the first ones to go all in with a multimedia approach.
>>7675608She got deliciously huge feet.
>>7675568Hold the fuck up, have those been sent out? I pre-ordered mine from GK-M as soon as they were revealed before she got sold out
>>7675703I've waited many many years for this, and its glorious
>>7675895It's my favorite out of the bunch as well. The Zaku and GM redesigns are disappointing; Zaku lost his precious mono eye and GM lost his visor.
>>7675857Ay yay yay those stickers is bad.
>>7675959She actually comes with waterslides too. And a set of molded eyes if you want to paint. I was actually impressed with how much effort was put into her compared to previous ms girl kits.
>>7675959Doesn't look too bad imo.Imagine if Bandai made MG tier girl model kits, they would probably be far better than what Koto has to offer.
>>7675969Because she's part of the Figure Rise Standard line instead of the HG line, like previous Gunpla girls.
>>7675238Really depressing. I'm bummed.
>>7675703>bandai will keep making more cookie cutter white blue and red gundam girls instead of the zeon grunt girlsFuck the whole world.
>>7675977So why DON'T they?
>>7676081I don't know, waifu market was never Bandai strongest point.
>>7673933Went to the Kotobukiya store in Akiba, was surprised to see they still have pins, stickers and little standies of Arnval and Strarf, their anime designs but still some little remains of Shinkis in their hometurf
>>7676097>little standiesLittle what?
>>7675238Was it confirmed that the Busou Shinki subline is dead? Does Konami own the designs?
>>7675227>they didn't show it off, it must be canned!patience never was a thing people had, after all.edelweiss didn't exactly spring up over night after her art was shown. taonyao may still be in dev hell. let's not go telling everyone everything is hosed without having more to go on, eh? hell, the AGA stuff is probably flowing as much as it is mostly for fact of being 3d modelled before anyone at koto has to even think about making a kit - moreso in the case of kaede/ayaka/aika/sugumi since they're going with gear that's already ingame (as opposed to the karwachauth stuff for sitara that koto had ebikawa do since they pussied out on doing the proper ganesha loadout)we should all be familiar with konmai being retarded, but getting ahead of ourselves is just as retarded.
>>7676149>>they didn't show it off, it must be canned!It most likely, it's a common thing with Japanese companies, plus newer figures as you mentioned already got released.
>>7676149>>7676140>>7675238>>7675227>>7675169fuck off retard>>7674066Asai outright said this multiple times and it's been posted here before
>>7673862Friendship ended with shinkiNow EVA is my best friend>>7674702
>>7674702>more rebuild crap
>>7676394>rebuild is ongoing>ergo they primarily shill rebuildI mean it's not a surprise or anything at this point. I think they even took EVA-00's spear chuck out of SRW since it hadn't happened in rebuild, but I'm not big into it so it could be some other attack/unit.
>>7676426I want a new TV ver action figure dammit!I will admit Koto did TV ver model kit, but it's still off model.
@mobile suit girl fansyall could just hack up some gunpla and a waifu (or blank body) and make customs, really not that hard to do
>>7676696basic examplenot my image (literally googled figma gundam girl)
>>7676714but think of the payoff, you could build anything you want exactly how you want it
>>7676733But you can't just build that >>7675703MG Mecha Musume when?
>>7676739you could if you have enough skill at scratch building or you could 3d print it
>>7676701Thats very definitely a Madoka.
>>7676861you are correct, that's kyoko sakura from madoka magica
>>7676701>Didn't file the v-fin to needle sharp tipswhat's even the point then
>>7677011>didn't paint the inside of the leg so the unpainted bright red comes out really fucking strong
>>7677011personal preference would be the point in this case I would think
>>7676701Puella Mecha Musume Magica. Huh, I like that.
Found some things on Twitter that weren't posted here yet so
I'm probably late to the party
This is the one with the drone I believe
>>7677736The more I see it the less I like it.
>>7677745Something about the texture makes me think it's a 3d printed prototype. I really like the design personally, but I also think it'll look better without that print texture and without the gloss purple.
>>7677745I wanted to say I don't like how busy it all looksBut then I saw the little hip frills. Now I'm not sure.
>>7677736>Horn girl twinsOh he>they're bullet knight clonesOH GOD DAMN IT
What started as a failed print salvage attempt, it turned into something GLORIOUS! I am proud to share the next prototype which I will now call Frame Arms Girl "Materia - Budget Meal Armor Cladding Something with Vents and Canon Shield Things"... yes it's a bit rough (way too rough) but that will change once I get my hands on a Resin Printer and escalate things once I get a proper 3D scanner and will model conversion hair for Frame Arms Girl (and ONLY Frame Arms Girl)... I always wanted a long haired Gourai or a Drill Hair Stylet... so many ideas... All I need is the proper equipment...Yes, I did use a bit of Kotobukiya MSG here and there but overall, it's still GLORIOUS! I think Frame Arms Girl Materia White is slightly angry at me for neglecting her... maybe I should make her a unique armor cladding as well.
>>7677819OK, this is all for now Brothers and Sisters... I swear once I get my hands on a 3D scanner and Resin Printer, I will make long haired Gourai hair conversion kit and post the STL files for free so others can have Gourai Long Hair too...
>>7677822>>7677819>>7677815>>7677811>>7677809>>7677806Very cool! A little rough textured but I like the shapes and volume all the binders adds.
>>7677806I don't know if this is an option for you, bur keep an eye on amazon. I just got an Anycubic Photon for 260usd on a flash sale.
>>7676031You should click that link
So this is up to pre-order >second release in the line>already 10$ moreI'm so sick of this shit >>7676754>if you have enough skill at scratch building or you could 3d print itBut I don't...
>>7678150The shield I am 3D modeling right now Brother... once done, I post STL here so you can have that shield 3D printed professionally...
>>7678150Then learn it m80, get yourself a sheet of styrene and listen to the infectious giddy banter of good ol' uncle Savage for tips:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZfvtGrhYk0I(that's what I did, will post limbs soon)
>>7677819>>7677822As nice as the armor bits are, PLEASE fix her hair.
>building FAG miku>super fucking small part, like the size of a poppy seed >drop it because I'm a retard>search for it on the flat mat below me that I build my kits over>cannot for the life of me find it, it could have bounced across the room or some shit>luckily there is a replacement >sand it down, looks nice, ready to attach it >fumble it out of my handhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ve88BGz0nPc
>>7678447Let me guess, the tiny black nubs for the middle of her belt-mounted speaker parts?
>>7678462Yes. There were three of them and I've dropped two. I got the third into the first speaker, but that's supposed to be the replacement.I'm so retarded I need two replacements. It'll take me hours to find these.
Guys I need help, how do you seam weld the Megami shoulders without the cement getting pulled into the moving parts by capillary action? I dabbed specifically on the peg slightly and it just travels all the way into the joint.
>>7678491dab the socket instead
>>7678623How would dabbing the socket help with a seam weld?
>>7678491Use 1/10 of the cement next time, idiot.
>>7678630use a lot less cement and gently put a thin coat on the inside rim of the socket
>>7678638I used the tip of a toothpick to apply it on the seam crossing the bottom of the peg. It was as little an amount of cement as I could possibly have used.>>7678648I am thinking next time I should probably separate the part fully, apply to the edges and then let sit before pressing together. I have never before had an issue like this when seam welding with capillary action, koto really got things snug against each other in these MDs.Lessons learned.
>>7677806Brothers and Sisters.. Just discovered the wonderful thing called wet sanding. I am now reprinting this add on for Frame Arms Girl Materia and wet sand it before putting them together with super glue. While it's printing, I started designing the armor for her sister Materia White.
>>7677736I'd like to point out that her promo pics are up, but she's got much darker red on that prototype in the background. Koto what the fuck is going on?
>>7678818The red is lighter here, but her skin looks a little darker. That prototype probably got a professional paintjob that erred a bit from the OOB colors.Or it's just the lighting.
>>7678695>wet sandingyou should look into auotmotive bodywork, you can transfer over a lot of the skills from doing that stuff, also should paint the other materias' parts (I suggest a weathered paintjob)
>>7678150it's not that hard to learn scratch building skills, or if you go the 3d printer route you could hire someone to render it for you
>>7677739damn it all, *opens wallet* how much?
>>7675633MS Girls did not start the craze, or at the very least they did not start the craze in terms of toylines. They are an old inspiration but not the catalyst.And the AGP failed because those girls looked nothing like the old school MS Girls. Among other issues
>>7679118ms girls created the idea and then others took over, the first mecha musume kits/collectables (to my knowledge) were the armored lady statue kits by bandai then konami had a mecha musume figure line, after that we got shinki, f.a.g, m.d, and so on, it should also be noted that the popularity of ms girls can also be traced to hookups skateboards which featured artwork of ms girls, and also things like kancolle have helped to popularize the mecha musume genre, and although agp has not seen much success (probably due to the pricepoint) there is no denying that ms girls are still very popular and with the new kits bandai has put out (fumina, gyanko, etc.) there has been much renewed interest in the idea of ms girls.
>>7678150Yes but she looks dope
>>7679234She does, and I like the multiple styles of face. I personally didn't really like how her face looked, but then I saw the second option. Looks a lot better imo.
>>7677736>pink hairYup instant buy for me
>>7678661>tip of a toothpick>as little an amount of cement as I could possibly have usedyou _are_ certifiably retarded
>>7678150Look wayyyyy fucking better than the first one.
>>7678150My wallet remains safe until Advent gets released.
open your heart and your wallet for tiny sitara, anon.
>>7679814no stop, I need to eat man, koto (and megahouse now) getting brown right was monkey paw as fuck, cause now I can't talk myself out of it as easily
>>7679234>>7679527I agree, but still don't feel like she worth the price point nor do I want to support this notorious practice of raising prices so quickly for no good reason.>>7679358I would rather have one face style with different expressions.
>>7679814I love me some chibi titties.
>>7678150Looks fine I guess but I really only care about the loli blanks from this line.
>>7679963Looks like their articulation construction is slightly different, I wonder if they can pull proper front splits unlike the MD base body.
>>7678150I want to preoder her but I have no idea where I'll be living when she releases. I can change the delivery address on AmiAmi after preordering right?
>>7679995You should also be able to set up forwarding service from your old address.
>>7678447Work above a white sheet of paper
>>7680004most dollar stores have big sheets of bristol board 2 for $1, would work perfectly
>>7678465>>7678447pantyhose on a vacuum, ez
>>7677806Right now I’m working on scratch building parts for MD kits to make my own custom kits but I’ve been lurking for a bit and couldn’t help but notice how nice those 3D prints are. Do you mind sharing what kind of 3D printer and software you use to make STL files? I’m only a novice to 3D modeling on PC and use blender but I’m a complete noob when it comes to 3D printing.
>>7680606Your programming socks should work okay, too.
>>7680718I want to get in on that myself but don't know how, but if you want an object someone else has made, if it's on Shapeways you can just pay the money to get it printed and sent to you (from what I understand)
>>7680961That's not how it goes.
Heads up, if anyone was eyeing the Snail Shell Wolf figure on GK-M, I'm trying to see if I can cancel the pre-order, so one may open up
>>7681184>tfw still waiting for primusBrown + half face respirator + coat is great
>>7679512if referring to the brush, the brush in my cement is not that small. The end is almost as wide as a Qtip at the widest point. It is not for pin point application.
>>7679963>I really only care about the loli blanks from this line.I highly doubt those blanks will be an actual product. They are a prototype showing off the basic body of the next concepted they will be trying. Aspy does that a lot, he did that with the original teasing of the Machineca body as a whole.
>>7671777>>7671782>Sitara's stupid little elephant got her full armor before herI see some pins, does it articulate? Garage kit?Guess I could get the desktop army version but the full version for her MD would be rad.>>7672888Probably because she's SOL Raptor's master.>>7674088Yumi was just announcedShe has my favorite suit but I really don't like flesh-colored joints and her gear isn't too interesting.
>>7682011There was a GK at Wonfes if memory serves. The full version really is nicer, I'd be interested in ANSG upgrade kit or enhanced version later.
>>7681580If they dont im going to japan and force Abe to make lolis a constitutional right at gunpoint, im going to make the WW2 unconditional surrender declaration look like a fucking joke.
>>7682286or you could try writing them a letter first
>>7682011>Probably because she's SOL Raptor's master.for that event story's sake, at least. when you get the freebie 3 raptor the introduction scene has you as the master. and has raptor start crying if you tell her sitara is the master because sitara's like "don't lie, you're the one in charge here, taichou" and raptor's like "master lied to me omg master hates me T_T".
Anyone here have any good ideas for alternatives to ball joints or ways to make custom ball joints? Preferably a method that doesn’t require cannibalizing another model.
>>7682383Just buy hobbybase joints
>>7682383wave makes replacement polycap joints, but I don't know what your needs are so something else might be needed
>>7682291DO I LOOK CANADIAN?
How many of you guys use a 3D printer to make custom parts? If any of you do what has your experience been with it?
>>7679857We are getting so much delicious brown...
>>7683454Not brown enough... I want Tamil Brown...
>>7683563Extra Wonderful, I agree.
>>7683454>>7683539>>7683563>>7683566DELICIOUS BROWN RICE!
>>7683623> Complaining about skin color in a thread for toys where people can make them whatever the fuck color they want
>>7683706This reminds me, I need to mix up a good succ blue and demon red. I have no idea when I'd use them, but I want them in my back pocket..
>>7683711I'd be more concerned about oversaturation, it's why I'm scared to even paint flesh.
>>7683718What's there to be afraid of? You can play around with spoons all day before actually touching your project, and if you make something you don't like, you strip it off and start over.
>>7683612Not brown enough.
>>7683706Exactly, that's why niggers are not welcome.
https://mobile.twitter.com/doramon1999/status/1156923099444498435Other than Sky High Wings, what other parts did he use for this custom?
>>7683801Looks like a Digimon.
>>7683801>>7683803Oh wait, it is one, Shutumon/Zephyrmon.
Used black spray paint can to paint the 3D printed parts I made for Materia Black... it was Glorious!... I can't wait to get my hands on a Resin Printer...
>>7683849Also. added some decals to spice things up...
>>7683706You can do whatever you want with your doll but dont cry if you show your fetish to someone else and they recoil in disgust. You wave away your right to not have your feelings hurt the moment you post something personal on the internet.
>>7683945The word is "waive", anon.
Speaking of brown girls, any tips when repainting faces and applying eye decals? A bit gun shy since on that front.
>>7684009Dip the pieces in acetone for a bit, it makes applying decals easy.
>>7682286Oh trust me, you WILL get the lolis, but not as blanks. Like I said before, he did this with the original machineca body that became the Megami Devices and others that use it. It's likely these lolis will be stylized in a way to reflect the Chitocerium line.
>>7675281Well considering Shinji's face is literally that of a girl's, it is remarkably easy to rule 63 him.
>>7684084Crisis avoided then.
>>7683849I really like those gigantic arm decals. Where did you get those? Also what kind of setup do you have now if not a resin printer. Maybe the lighting makes it look smoother but it’s already really impressive.
>>7684123The Gigantic Arms Decal came with the Darkness Guardian Gigantic Arms. As for setup, I'm using a refurbished Ender 3 printer. Got it broken and had to replace one of the stepper motors as well as the Power Supply also did a couple of upgrades to it. Lighting does kinda hide the imperfections but I am now designing version 2 which is FTL friendly and as always, I will distribute the files for free. This particular armor Materia is wearing I already uploaded in Thingiverse but requires a few MSG parts. Ver 2 will have none of those... look forward to it Brother...
>>7682552well as a canadian, I just thought I'd make the suggestion.
>>7684156>thingiverseupload to shapeways maybe?
>>7684156I have no FAGs but I'm going to throw this in my photon just because I like how it looks.
>>7684156>>7684199Nevermind. I forgot how tiny the Photon's build plate is. Any chance you can separate each part so I can rearrange them to fit?
>>7684228I can do it Brother but this design is heavily dependent on extra MSG parts. I am currently designing version 2 that uses no MSG parts as well as improvements in some fittings and will make each part separate so you can fit them in your print area...
>>7684233Thanks man. I don't know what I'm going to do with it but I'll find something. Maybe if my 30MM model ever ship.
>>7683612too dark, needs bright stockings/gloves and maybe cute white hair for contrast like pic(I'll spare the uninitiated, trap)
>>7683801>someone remembered shutmon instead of fairythotneat
I want to get into making these and i was going to start with architect as she was one of the cheaper ones i saw first but i want to know if its hard to make or easy to mess up before i buy one.
>>7684156Since I’m not into 3D printing (yet) I’m not familiar with thingverse. Do you mind sharing the link or name of your stuff when you finish it so that when I get a 3D printer I can make it? When I searched up frame arms I found a waist armor but wasn’t sure if it was the same as yours.
>>7684787they are a little tricky and have many tiny parts that can easily break if you are not careful, if you have no experience with this kind of stuff I would suggest practicing with some low cost hg 1/144 bandai kits then once you know what you are doing go for the kotobukiya stuff
>>7684787definitely do as >>7684975 says with the HG. Also choose an HG with weapons or even armor design you think would be great for your Architect. A lot of times it's retardedly easy to attach gundam limbs to these girls, and the weaponry is of course at the right scale. This way you get some practice with sanding, nub removal, fitting parts etc, AND you get accessories for your FAG
I'm getting pic related Koto bonus faces, and I have Archer, Ninja, Magical Girl, Witch, and Hornet waterslides, but I'm not sure which to use. I'm sure as fuck not trying to paint my own custom eyes.I actually never see what people create from the bonus blank faces. Does anyone ever use them?
>>7685376They're useful to have around when the idea strikes you for something fun to do.
>>7685376Also, I suggest you buy specific eye decals, instead of using the koto ones. Unless you're just looking to have the same girl with new expressions, then that's fine as well.
>>7685452Those are actually cute. I've seen some custom ones floating around. Might look into them
>>7685376Where did you get them from?
>>7685382I have looked into the abyss
>>7685595Mandarake gets kits in with bonuses now and then
>>7675681I can only get so errect.
>>7684156a suggestion for a weapon: make a scythe, it would look awesome for this custom to have one
>>7685958Will seriously consider this Brother... but for now.. a preview of what I'm currently test printing. A modular Portable Grenade Launcher for Frame Arms Girl...
>>7685987should include a detachable trigger/handle
>>7684787With the older kits, you're really going to need to buy backup wrist joints. I'm not even that much of a hamhands and I broke all 4 of my jinrai's wrists.
>>7686073Most FAG kits contain extra wrist joints, and later production kits replace or add in POM wrist joints over the older ABS ones.There's also a series of MSG kits with FAG joints.
>>7686308The ABS ones are practically useless.
anybody know if the original hresvelgrs armor will fit on the bikini armor body (mainly the waist parts)?
Am I right in seeing XF-3 Stylet having a fang in her closed eyes, open mouth seemingly smug face?
>>7686975I'd like to know but i havent put together original Hres yet, has it been two years since release?
>>7686975The clear side straps of her swimsuit would interfere with the waist armor side panels, I thinkTempted to use the skintone torso parts left from her runners for interesting mods.
Where’s Brother anon I need him to tell me what he’s searching to find those scrap part salesI’m typing in things like ‘toy scrap yard’ ‘gundam scrap’ on Facebook and it brings up a tiny handful of irrelevant results.
>>7687713He’s a literal sea monkey, are you a nigger chink yourself?
>>7686975She should be compatible. You can even use the originals side panels on her
>>7687734What does that have to do with anything? I thought he was literally diving in a scrap yard before I read people (apparently) have sales on Fagbook.
very random question: anyone know of a product that can help heal blisters?
Brothers and Sisters... I am now working on designing version 3... I will improve design. Anyway, here is Frame Arms Girl compatible Portable Grenade Launcher... I accidentally spray it too thicc and touched it while it is still wet so the paint is now ruined with so many fingerprints...
>>7687869Popped or unpopped? Treatment varies with each. Unpopped you want to keep it unpopped, really not much you should do to it. Use moleskin cut in a donut shape with the blister in the middle to keep pressure from affecting it if someplace like bottom of a foot. Only time my family ever drained a blister was one caused by a burn that covered the space between the base of the thumb and pointer finger. If it popped, don't treat it like a typical open injury with sterilyzers like alcohol. Instead you want to just wash the area, spread on some ointment like >>7687873 and cover with bandage. My family always used neosporin for the ointment.
>>7688180is popped, i cleaned it as best I could and bandaged, I seem to get them from overwashing my hands, if anyone knows of a good product to help prevent this I would love to know about it
>>7687869>>7688780post blister pics. otherwise how do we know what to suggest?
>>7687869Any cream with vitamin A and D helps healing scratches and blisters fast.
>>7688117>touched it inapropriately while wetYou pervert.
If anyone held off on Greifen coz of her crazy face, she's a lot cuter in hand. Mine has been sitting in my to-build stack for a while since I wasn't super excited about her. But damn, she went from 2/10 to 8/10 once everything started to come together.
>>7688784honestly didn't think I'd get much response so I didn't bother, but I can unbandage and take a pic if you really want to see
>>7688780>>7689508I mean not particularly an MD approved treatment, but apparently the old fashioned way my mom learned was:take a needle with some string, thread it through the blister (yes, shank the thing), then leave the string. Makes the skin under heal faster and prevents it from re-filling, apparently.
>>7689456>held off on Greifen coz of her crazy faceI was sold on her BECAUSE of her batshit smile.
>>7690586For me it was the giant fisting hands.
>>7690583>MD"Medical Degree", I mean, I forgot what thread I'm in for a second
>>7690594It means either or to my knowledge, since it effectively announces the same thing
>>7690592combine the two md and have a nurse waifu
>>7690625Or coerce a Medical Doctor cosplay as Megami Device... :)
>>7690592>TFW no Ninja GF
>>7690636>£24>Can probably get a good FAG/MD cheaper than that>Still kinda want it1/12 clothing is a true hell
I am so close in perfecting the fittings... so close Brothers and Sisters...
>>7690594I am reminded of the FAG nurse conversion kit.. (which is legit breddy gud for spare parts/price ratio)Speaking of, GK-M has some new MD conversion recasts up (which I'm gonna disregard because I have 3 on PO)
>>7692541wtf bruv, are you using SLA??that looks way too smooth for FDM
>>7692545It's FDM Brother, but I dis wet sand it a bit...
>>7690583Thats just to drain the liquid, you need to heal it.
>>7692543>GK-M has some new MD conversion recasts up
>>7692759Any time someone brings up GK-M I have to go through the process of "Do I really need more optional parts for my kits" again
>>7692759>>7693173GK-M parts are casted well, but it's pointless to recast in color when your white parts have flecks of orange and your orange parts have flecks of black. Like great, now I definitely have to paint these parts if I want them to fit with the kit they are for.
>>7693178I've only ever gotten two sets from them but everything I got was pretty clean. Maybe minus a couple specks in one big white part
>>7693207Yeah I have received clean parts from them too, but it shouldn't be a crapshoot.
>>7693178Do they recast things in colors that they don't normally show up in?
>>7693221Specifically I am talking about recast Muscuto Megami Device sets. I believe some of the same molds were used for parts that come in either white, orange (SOL color), or black. So instead of cleaning out the mold between casting runs, they just let the debris from the last run sit in the molds, leaving flecks of incorrect colored resin in the product.
>>7691010>got that, the pink, and the lab coat to have a full party of two mattie nurses and one doctor (either archi or laetitties for humor) >got a bunch of other picco for polynians and tsuji's shizue dollfags must be some rich fuckers to do this regularly
>>7693230>>7693178interesting, I've purchased about 8 GK-M kits to date and none have had flecks. I tend to buy early so maybe that helps? uncertain. I have also bought a couple of the SH Studio recasts off ebay. 4 kits to date, 3 were without flecks, but the last one had debris down the center of the 2 thigh flesh parts - might just be on the outside, I didn't try to wash them off yet. They're sending me replacement parts so if I can clean them off I might end up with extra thigh parts.
>>7693221all casts for the megami device sets are in their appropriate colors. the all white casts are the big anime garage kits.
Found this instock at Koto US, and they had Bikini Hresvelgr as well.
I want to recast MDs infinitely for myself to make custom but don't want to put down the money for silicone and resin so I've started using epoxide putty. I've gotten some test fits so far and they're coming out pretty smoothly. I plan on switching from putty to thermophilic plastic to make these molds out of in the future.
>>7693382Also these are just the rough tests. If they look messy thats because I'm was just trying to see if I can get the general shape down and the rest I can sculpt and sand like a garage kit.
>>7693385I also forgot to mention that I'm going to scratch build all of the joints and parts needed for articulation. I've hollowed out the insides so I can fit all that stuff.
>>7692543>like the fluffy hair option he has for Asra Ninja>don't even care for the gigaboobs, just like the hair>Price $29 for cheaply made chink swap-out partsFuck that.
>>7693442For some reason the newer casted kits are cheaper than the old ones
Greifen is pretty cute
>>7693936and those sexy legs
>>7693382>>7693385>>7693389While your efforts to reinvent Masaki Apsy's wheel are admirable, we will all be here to laugh at you when the inevitable blank Machineca bodies hit the market. GSC might do it even before Koto.How many tens of customs were you planning to build anyway?
>>7694075>we will all be here to laugh at you when the inevitable blank Machineca bodies hit the marketJust like those blank Machineca bodies they showed off over 4 years ago that we were told would get released?“2016 spring (maybe......)” they saidKeep on waiting patiently buddy.
>>7694075I was inspired by the Girls Frontline T-Dolls because of their name and my love for Little Armory Weapons and I plan to reproduce the entirety of Task Force Defy, Anti-Rain Team, and Squad 404. Also some meme ones too like IDW but for IDW I plan on producing as many as my patience will endure.
So Koto is releasing GaogaiGirl without her mecha bits for cheaper. Glad I waited.
>>7694282Me too, the armor looks finicky.
>>7694282That's all I wanted
>>7694270Recasting those body parts in epoxy is a bad idea. Way too brittle. Vacuforming duplicates and reinforcing them from the inside is a slightly better idea.
https://youtu.be/GhXpbeKcHu0Luca reminds me of Greifen.
>>7694624My plan is to later cast them in hard plastic. I found this material called instamorph that a lot of people apparently use to recast teeth for their dentures. I figured that if it's strong enough to handle grinding from chewing it should be good enough for joints.But tell me more about vacuforming and how exactly would reinforcing them be like? Also wouldn't vacuforming at this scale end up making the parts a little thicker than intended? It's essentially adding a layer on top of it increasing its overall size even if it's just slightly.
>>7673829Everytime i see the op image I see a baby wearing a black glove strangling this figure
>>7694282They also have a PissGold(tm) version coming a month after that.
>>7695552When I see these releases (really just this and that Gourai) all I think is "wasted potential"How much more expensive would it be to just get them plated instead of use that plastic? Because I would buy a plated kit, but will never buy one of these piss yellow kits.
>>7695296Oh god. This instamorph is durable. A little TOO durable. After I recast the parts they're so tough they thud when they hit the table and not even my dremel can sand the stuff down let alone cut with my hobby knife. I'm only shaving it away by literally MELTING the plastic. What other material can I recast these parts in if I can't figure this stuff out?
>>7695554Considering how Bandai's plating costs around 2 times the original price, you would have to expect at least 2.5~3 times of what GGGirl goes for which is like 24k yen.
>>7695568Unless GGGirl is undergated you'd also have to expect nubs everywhere in this case. If you're right about the price difference, you could just about start painting yourself instead. Dunno how costly home electroplating is.
>>7695570You could always airbrush it with actual goldleaf paint
>>7695552Why do I love how fucking stupid this tacky ass gold color looks?She looks like a fucking moron
>>7693389>>7693385>>7693382Holy shit I tried the same with Oyumaru/Blue Stuff for castingMy next step would be to use those 'moulds' and fill 'em up with PU resin (cheapest available), there's also the 'Mechanical Hobby Base' MD clone on Thingiverse you could try to put through a 3d printer
>>7695554>really just this and that Gouraisisters in piss
>>7695736>sisters in pissSounds like the title of a possible doujin that I might buy for.. reasons.
At this point, I think it's mission accomplish and shall proceed with my next project...
>>76959133D printed Frame Arms Girl compatible 1/12 scale Portable Grenade Launcher
>>7695915And the previous prototypes/versions...
>>7695921>ver 3.2 explanation I laughed, but not at your expense! Please take care of your health.
>>7695296Use 1mm or 0.75mm styrene sheets. Reinforce the pieces with pla plates on the inside perpendicular to the surfaces.
>>7695915>1/12 scale Portable Grenade Launcherthat's a missile launcher, a grenade launcher is a very different thing.
>>7695921I uploaded the STL files on thingiverse but for some odd reason, 4chan doesn't let me post links but you can use "Frame Arms Girl Compatible Portable Grenade Launcher" as keyword... also here is detailed instructions on how to put it together.
possibly a dumb question:would the top thigh part from an md work with the leg from a fag? or would there be too big of a size difference? also, would a full set or fag legs work on an md?
>>7695560you may need a diamond grinder bit to work that stuff, if that doesn't work then nothing will.
>>7695552chrome gold spraypaint might be able to help fix this mess
>>7696171Not sure on size difference but you would have to cut the pegs off either the thigh or leg. FAG legs entirely are longer but they look fine on an MD, but I'm at work so I can't get a pic right now
What kind of resin do people normally make their recasts with? Is it polyurethane or epoxy resin?
>>7696378Epoxy, seems like the other is probably worth it only if you plan on casting multiple things.
>>7695698I'm thinking about testing between making some silicone molds and casting resin but also testing out how polymer clay would work in my current oyumaru molds. I know that resin will give me good results but I'm curious to see the durability that polymer clay can provide. It seems like after it bakes it can actually be flexible which might be good but I'm not sure. Does anyone here have any experience dealing with polymer clay and is it something you'd want a figure made of?
>>7696217What people do is reheat the plastic, smoosh it into the molds and trim the excess. Let cool and repeat until you get minimal excess material from the mold seams.
>>7696711Polymer clay is very brittle after baking, right?
I don't know why, but I'm really stressed on starting any of my mecha musume kits (FAGs, MDs, Chitocerium). Even though I have years of Gunpla and HMM experience under my belt. I guess I feel some pressure to make them really pretty, and I worry my crude robot skills are not up to the task. Are there any guides specific to these kits, concerning stuff like skin and hair shading, etc? I don't have an airbrush btw.
I figured that since it turns into PVC that it would be pretty tough, but I'm not entirely sure. I would think it's brittle, but it's also PVC. PVC itself is pretty tough but still sandable.
>>7696138Thank you for sharing your work.
>>7696067I mean... it might be a missile Brother but it has Grenade on the tip and you launch the missile, missile with Grenade, which you launch, so it has to be a Grenade launcher...
>>7697057Remember, just because they're cute girls doesn't mean you have to do anything significantly different. You might like these, though.
New thread: >>7697585
>>7697457>>7697460Is the matte spray just to give the pencil a better surface to adhere to?
>>7697228with actual missiles they don't carry a grenade inside them they have an explosive payload which depending on how the missile is made will explode on contact usually because the tip being hit will work as a trigger whereas a grenade is a handheld explosive that will explode after a few seconds after it is primed, in terms of design a grenade launcher is a much different thing, what you have made would be classified as as missile launcher or as a projectile launcher or it could also be called a missile pod, you should look into actual military hardware, but as a general name it should be call a projectile launcher or a projectile pod.
