>>7697585Where is her mane?
>DA Sophia delayed to after AugustOh no! Why?
>>7697589I am her mane, or i will be once the armor-less version comes out.
>>7697610>Delayed AGAINAt least I don't feel too bad about buying a ton of transformers this month
>>7697585>Gigantic Arms Goldion Crusher when
Nidy tiddy bunny Volks Vlocker girl and many others revealed. Oof https://twitter.com/roriboin/status/1160045949621657600?s=20
Quick rundown on this bitch here?
>>7697854A healthier, bigger, blonde Stylet...
>>7697854Who is that?
>>7697854adult baselard with stylet's hairstyleI dub her milflard
>>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.
>>7697854>Cross-shaped socketsMust be one of the new Volks girls
>>7698036Why do they do that
>>7698039mechanically speaking:it is structurally stronger than a round peg, also so the part doesn't rotate around (locks it in place)
>>7697970So they misnamed this thing and nobody bothered to correct them?
>>7697689Yes. Some have reported that it will stick fine without, though.
>>7698142Not that anon but the term "rocket propelled grenade" it's solely due an anglo backronym from the early (and still going on iI think) russian designation of their rocket based light anti tank portable weapons. Why the russians denominated it a "grenade"? probably because the warhead was close to anti tank grenades/projectiles of WWII so they stuck with it, but if anyone has some sources specifying otherwise it would be interesting to read
Another updateI wonder if Bandai would actually do something with these.>>7697801I dig the Alien and Astronaut girls.
>>7697801Can someone redpill me on Vlocker? Are these gonna be hard? I want Milflard and one of those big pawed grils
>>7697801Nidy should be banned, he's much too dangerous to my wallet.
>>7698462>Can someone redpill me on Vlocker?Way too hard for someone like you. Probably should stick to Babby's building blocks.
>>7698478Sorry, I meant hard to purchase. Was so excited I forgot words.
>>7698502This was not me.>>7698478This was.I meant too hard to build for someone of sub-par intelligence.
>want to get into muscuto because the joints look cool>don't like lewding my robotsfucking japs
>>7698603You could always leave the boobs and ahegao faces off them.
>>7698321>Why the russians denominated it a "grenade"?If i had to guess its because rockets are a saturation weapon that works when usen en masse while shoulder fired rockets are precision weapons so they get the "grenade" designation, semantics.
>>7697610>bought her on NY because I had non transferable credit after a fuckup during one of the free shipping sales >NY keeps in stock and pre-orders together until the PO is out>my clear AX-00 keeps getting trapped in limboI mean I don't need it now, but shit I wish they let you split orders like decent storefronts.Speaking of little busters, how did spartan saber- sorry, "achilles" turn out?
>>7698522Thanks for clarifying that you're an asshole.
>>7698716Why don't you redpill me on how angry you are :^)
>>7698748>redpillIf only there was a way to communicate without outing yourself as a racist and misogynist! Oh well maybe in another thousand years people will create new words. :^)
>>7698755Typical npc preachy response
>>7698760Keep taking those redpills halfwit faggot.
Great, the retards are fighting again.
>>7698762Yup. I read that first post hoping someone would actually go over the quirks of the Vlockers girls (not that I need to pick up a new line or buy more kits), but I had an inkling this would happen.Does anyone have any praise or words of caution regarding the Vlockers, though?
>>7698787>words of caution regarding the VlockersWaaaay too difficult for your typical Trumptard. Just about anyone else should have 0 problems though.
>>7698794>Just about anyone elseTo be fair, a lot of zoomers will have trouble with them also, like all things that require more than 10 minutes of work.
>>7698787I've heard they've got rather flimsy plastic, but I don't have any personal experience.
>>7698437Come on Bandai, make Figure Rise kits of these. It's Free Real Estate!
>>7698883Enjoy your Gyanko!
>>7698603Muscuto's a gook
After the Grenade Launcher... I am doing something really quick like a shield... large 1/12 scale shield thing compatible with Frame Arms Girl...
>>7698993So does that mean he's Chinese or Japanese?
>>7699002Muscuto is actually Korean.
>>7699003>>7699004So does that mean he's Chinese or Japanese?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d_CaZ4EAexQ
>>7699002He is korean.
I need cat ears for my Ninja now. Wait, I might have some. Sweet.
>>7698998it's a damned missile pod you fuckwit, and that shield sucks both in design and stuctural assembly
>>7698925I have one.
>>7698321Military nomenclature is a crapshoot at best anyway. Besides, maybe its a metal storm type weapon with a couple of dozen grenades per tube instead of a single giant missile.
>>7699186Why did I drool at such a prospect?
>>7698998Print turned nice but I think I need to remove the holes and reduce detail. A bit of TLC will make this look good...
First time user of Airbush Brothers and Sisters... I am now a believer of Airbrush... the results are far superior than the cans I have used in the past...
>>7699338I can't go back to Spray Can now...
>>7699340All I need to do now is to level up my Wet Sanding skills and GIT GUD with it to have smoother 3D printed weapons and parts in the future until I get my hands on a Resin Printer...
>>7699338>first timeWhats your setup?
>>7699432Purchased a cheap Airbrush for meant for makeup from Lazada and used Laquer Tamiya for color and a generic Car Paint Primer. Will upgrade to proper equipment now that I learned the joys of Airbrushing Brother...
>>7698840They used plastic that is too soft and easily damaged for the shoulder socket pegs.
>>7699338you can get similar results out of spray cans if you have different nozzles (most tend to have a basic spray pattern nozzle, but you can get ones that allow for a finer amount of control), also be sure to read up on paints/primers, as mixing different types can effect the bond to the surface as well as the finish
>>7699018Use spare Innocentia ears and carefully integrate the ear sockets into the hairpiece base.
>>7697854iris is a really good looking case example. nidy's designs just generally seem to turn out pretty nice.
I bet my teachers are sure glad they stopped letting me play with clay before I hit puberty now!
>>7700659And then I remembered the resin parts I bought for exactly this project. Oh well, I was only playing with the putty anyway.
>>7700659looks like a butt to me
>>7701158Well, tits are just an ass analogue. I guess a similar technique would work for a nice butt too, but with less droop and a more angular cleavage...
>>7701297>tits are just an ass analogueAss is a consolation prize for when you can't get tits
>>7701310Other way around.
>>7701311That doesn't make sense because ass is something that can be gotten.
>>7701310>Not being part of the implant master race
>>7701310>>7701297Evolutionarily I think tits are just straight up an ass substitute; since most of the animal kingdom fucks from behind everyone loves ass, but we fuck better from the front and aside from us tits generally don't come about until AFTER you have kids. So permanently filled funbags got selected for since they gave horny ungas something to play with on the other side. All theories of course since we don't have comprehensive tit fossil records
>>7701614>comprehensive tit fossil recordsNoggin status: joggin'. That could make for a decent tankoubon. Imagine the journey from ass to tits as we watch man evolve from cave man to man and travel to Japan to become a beta male.
>>7701764Imagine being the paleontologist who found tit fossils (well, subfossils). Like a 1 in 1000000000 chance of a hot cave thot dying face down in some mud leaving a perfect imprint of her knockers which somehow got preserved, statistically one of the most amazing finds in history, but your legacy will forever be the caveman tit guy.
>>7702888Sounds like people are impatient for B Series Megamis and Season Two.
>>7700659>my teachers >before I hit puberty now!>now!I guess it's Summer after all
>>7702888They should have made MD vs FAG crossover movie instead of a recap.
>>7698787Don't like em. Plastic and fit feel far lousier than Koto and Bandai. Parts don't hold well by snap fit, you WILL NEED glue.Figure articulation and range aren't as good as FAGirls and MDs. Maybe on par with Bandai's crappy Gundam girls. They've been making a lot of add-on parts. But none of them sell out like Koto's.A kit is also mostly just the girl and bare extra weps. Nothing like the full armored stuff you get from Koto or even Aoshima. I made one, realized how much extra modding and glue it needed, and left it for a day I want to bother with all the hassle. I've built 4 Koto girls in the meantime.
>>7697585The books make Galeon's head look like a hamster with packed cheeks.
>>7703018the teachers are glad now they stopped him earlier, not now is before he hit puberty, esp-kun
>>7703041Crossover movie with Shinkis when, I want to see Strarf punish Hres for her bragging.
>>7703060Welp, that says all I need to know. I'll find other Nidy titties to work on. Hopefully Jene comes out okay.
bought a resin parts kit, don't know much about resin, is it safe to use regular super glue on it?
>>7704199Superglue, aka CA, aka Cyanoacrylate, is the recommended glue for resin.
>>7704209just make sure you wash the resin parts off in a dish soap and water solution, to remove any remaining mold release.
>>7698925Remake her, heck all their HG gunpla girls under the figure rise line and they're basically back in the game.Both Nami and Ayame turned out pretty great, much better than their earlier attempts.Love Gyanko but even I can't bring myself to get that.
>>7704238Also write your will for when you get resin induced lung cancer within next month.
>>7704199>>7704341Ehh, this is serious by the way, if you sand the resin or do anything that might introduce particles of it into the air, you need to get a properly rated particulate filter mask from your local hardware store. And I mean like a proper $20-30 one with replaceable filters, not those dinky paper surgical masks that do nothing. Be careful dude, resin dust can kill you dead.I repeat: RESIN DUST CAN KILL YOU DEAD.
>>7704698Regular particulate filters like the 3M P100 pancakes are all you really need, right?
>>7704908You can go with the pancakes, but I tend to just buy 60921 Organic Vapors, since it includes the P100 layer but will also protect me while I spray my kits. If you don't paint, just go for the pancakes, they cost about half as much as the organic vapor.Also be mindful that if it becomes hard to breathe or in the case of painting, if you can smell anything in the mask, it's time to replace those filters.
>>7704698>if you sand the resin or do anything that might introduce particles of it into the air, you need to get a properly rated particulate filter mask from your local hardware storeno point, you are already dedjokes aside, if you dry sand resin, mask will not help you much unless you are prepared to always wear mask in that room or unless you are able to replace the air before the dust settles on the surfacestl;dr always wet sand
>>7705331would a HEPA filter + thorough surface cleaning help?
>>7705331Basically, you need an inclosed room, right? You can't do it outside or in your garage?
>>7705569*IN ADDITION to wet sanding and a mask
>>7705589Outside or your garage would be better; you do less breathing there in general and any stray particles are more likely to fuck off to somewhere you don't care about.
What's a good way to do paint the illusion of a translucent bodysuit?(not white, not brown)Do I tint say, clear purple or clear blue on flesh color, or do I spray thin layers and gradients of regular purple/blue?Example, like, you know the thin swimsuit look where there's some spots are hinting the skin color underneath?
>>7705823I figure it's some kind of ultra-thin coat, but if I'm doing the see-thru effect, would Hres Ater's white swimsuit or Hres Bikini's unused skintone swimsuit work better for the see-thru?
>>7705823I think it would be>spray flesh tone>spray thin suit color>layer it thicker where the swimsuit would be more opaque there was a moon rune guide posted here once but I can't find it
>>7698163Mostly concerned about layering the matte spray, since I'd want to do that last on top of the colored pencil. I'll have to see if some of the little kits I have lying around are a similar plastic/finish to the MD I'm waiting for.>>7705823You're going to have to study how artists do similar. But when I was watching someone paint a garage kit, he fucking did the dermal layer of skin, a kinda splotchy variance of blood colors, before spraying the the base skin color. Then he sprayed the tan, after covering areas to create tanlines.So you're probably going to want to follow a similar layering nonsense. Not that deep but do the skin underneath then spray layers of your translucent suit, thickening it where it's not stretched across the skin.I don't know if you'd be able to get a translucent colored resin to paint/pour on. No idea if that would produce the effect you want at that scale.
I really want to get into frame arms/md stuff, but I'm retarded when it comes to painting or decals. What would be a good kit to start with?
>>7705937MD Edelweiss looks good even without paint
so if i work the resin under water i should be ok right?
>>7706192fully submerged under water*
>>7706192I always put on the scuba suit and work on resin underwater in the swimming pool these days.You can never be too careful!
>>7706201Imagine dropping small resin parts in the pool.
>>7705872Newer MDs have this texture to the skin that gives a pseudo matte look, I'd expect that can hold pencil just fine. Nothing wrong with two layers of topcoat, though.
>>7706319And a ching chong nip jong to you too, young--GOD DAMN!
>>7706324>>7705869Holy shit, I had no idea Yo had this kind of skills.
before I design and construct my very own large Frame Arms Girl compatible mech... I must construct a modular hanger (diorama) that can be arranged and reconfigured... with LED lights and stuff.... Oh and let's make it big... REALLY BIG... like big enough to have two Frame Arms Girl Ikazuchi fit inside... it's just that printing it takes uh... quite a while but I nailed the connectors and tolerances already so there's that...For now... preview of foundation work as well as a few of the large panel pieces for what will eventually be a 2ft deep by 3ft wide by 2.5ft high modular diorama :)
>>7706861Go with many blessings, brother.
>>7703519Same here. I know jack shit about PSO, but if Gene does well I hope we get Matoi down the line
How does a desktop army's head look on a megami body?
>>7707393Too small to not look hilarious.
>>7707393Like a brother
>>7707654>>7707663Man, how am I going to downscale my FAGs without new heads?The original heads will look huge on them.
>>7707692>tfw no lettuce colored leititia
>>7707686You could wait until the Hexa Gear FAGs come out, thems tiny.
>>7707749I want them at figma scale so they can be cute but not dianaut tiny.Tall FAGs look weird on my humble collection.
>>7708483Your time is over, sticcfags.
So, this cutie has practically no image, but she's getting plamo. What's she like in game? Her spirit animal looks to be some kind of birb, I assume a hawk?
>>7708615New Phone. https://myfigurecollection.net/item/874093
>>7708615Actually, that was the wrong link. That's Susano'o.https://myfigurecollection.net/item/740296
>>7708584She's a laid back girl who likes plamo and tokusatsu. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BOpqL19d5XU&t=131s
>>7708534As if I didn't already have two huge reasons to buy Amaterasu
>>7709397Well, now you have four. Maybe six. I don't think we've gotten any butt shots yet, but they're doing everything else right, so...>>7708700>Gunpla>TokuWe need to complete an otaku Trinity. Is there an idolfag amongst the cast? A jojoker or walking DBZ reference?
>>7709437Maybe she'll become an idol since everything is idols now.
>>7708700plamo and Toku? So when do we get Cross Frame Grid Girl? For extra appeal make her basically a cosplaying Rikka/Real Akane.
>>7709437Honestly the tummy sculpting might be my favorite part of the new body
Tokusatsu musume when?
>>7709882My penis aside, she does look nice and solid. Outside of abs, that seems like the best design to evoke that warrior feel.
Dark elf Edelweiss recolor fucking when
>>7710440hmm, let me check the production schedule...looks like q3 2021.
>>7709968Acidic and not ally-of-justicepilled.
>>7710440You're a funny guy, you get in the oven first.
>>7707393Well, the hair scales properly at least, so I dunno.
I'm in the process of my first custom paint of Baselard! It's not perfect, but I'm new to airbrushing.
Is the anon who originally posted this still here? Or can somebody else tell me where those cute boots are from?
>>7711241He'll be back soon enough, you shouldn't have to wait long
>>7711241They came from a scrap Billy Herrington Figma... as well as the tool belt and the towel in her neck...
>>7711570>billy is dead>this nigga killed him IRL You fucking monster
>>7706861Something tells me I'm doing things wrong... my intention was to make a 2ft deep by 3ft wide by 2.5ft high hangar diorama with a sliding large interior crane for my Frame Arms Girl. But these modular panels (yes, modular) took nearly 12 hours to print... each on an Ender 3... my gut tells me something this large isn't suitable for 3D printing and I should be instead watching handicraft videos on youtube...I'm pausing this large 3D print hangar project and will rethink my approach...
Anyone outside Japan get a muscuto shipping notice yet?I'm seeing this latest pack of items trickling onto Japanese twitter, so I figure it won't be long.
>>7711897haven't gotten anything from them, seems they don't really care about their international buyers.
>>7710772that is friggin adorable, my heart can't take this...ungg....
>>7711930I wonder if the people he scammed a few years back got a chargeback.
>>7711870print one panel then make a mould of it and cast copies of it
>>7711933he scammed people? wtf? never heard about that, please tell me more
>>7711930>all this saltI have not received a notice from this latest round yet, but 2 days ago he posted photos of the boxes being filled. Prior to that, I have ordered from him 3 times with no issues.
>>7711933>>7711942I don't think scammed is really the best word, but hey its 4chan right?I remember the discussions where a couple anons had mixed up orders, and I remember one anon saying he placed an order and never received it. That same anon also made it sound like they were too Beta to ask about it until 6 months had gone by, so really who knows?
>>7711955ok, not as bad as I had imagined, but still not happy to hear about this stuff happening
>>7711961Well to be fair, I think it was all back in 2016 or 2017. It seems like he's ironed out some kinks since then.
>>7711964alright, breathing normally again nowhopefully it's just a slow go with the shipping stuff
>>7711942From what I remember, there were a couple anons here that didn't receive their orders.Muscuto kept ignoring e-mails sent to him about the issue and I think one guy got an emoji as a reply?After a while Muscuto finally did contact "some" of the people that didn't get their orders and sent them some random shit instead of what they ordered. (Probably leftovers from past events)But even then, there were still a few anons that never got anything.
>>7711975calmness level: losing mindthis is not what I want to be hearing right now
>>7711982Well calm your tits. Just do a paypal chargeback if you're so scared.
>>7711987I'll wait and see, I just get worked up easily, imma go for a walk or something to chill out
>>7711982In the end, lesson is, if nothing happens in 30 days, just have paypal refund the money.
>>7712003>30 daysyou get 180 days now.
>>7712008Well that's new.But doesn't that also mean Muscuto can ignore you for 180 days?
>>7712008New guy here. That'd make me a lot more likely to (pre)order from him, then. After that alst issue, I'd definitely pull the plug before the refund time frame was up.
Sent muscuto a PM, and he said tracking would go out once all the packages have been delivered to the post office, and to please be patient.
>>7712059>But doesn't that also mean Muscuto can ignore you for 180 days?No, it means that's how long you get to open a case. You can choose to escalate it before that 180 days has gone by.
>>7708584She's the dev's waifu. Does the same っす style of talking as Yotsuyu. From my general impression, she's very laid back but also has a mischievous bend. She prefers doing multiple builds over doing one highly detailed build but seems to go back to them eventually.I should know more about her but I get pretty lazy about going through everyone's stories.>>7711870You're asking the 3D printer to deal with your laziness essentially, as you're reaching the point where other fabrication methods are more efficient for what you want to do. For uniform shapes (the beams, those floors) you really should just buy stock plastic and make connecting brackets and details with the 3D printer. Hell, even regular ass paperboard from a craft store would go a long way for the solid parts of the panels. You layer it to produce the channels and give it rigidity.
>>7711975How many of them were American?
>>7707393Ok. Megamis tend to have long necks though, which looks a little weird.
>>7707393>>7712459To do that specifically, you either need to find a megami neck to DTA head joint (probably someone makes them) or kitbash one yourself. Mine is a sylphy neck joint with the hole expanded to fit a megami neck base and the top part of the connection widened to get over the longer megami neck base, and a spare DTA neck joint trimmed and drilled to fit onto a 3mm post.
>>7712459Huh, that's pretty good. If anything, I'd need to slim/extend the jaw after adapting the neck.>drillbit shouldersJesus. Have they still not fixed the joints?
>>7712669The joints are fine, I just got the brass shoulders because I like smooth motion and do quite a bit of posing.
>>7712704>smooth motion and do quite a bit of posing.you sold me, how do I get these things?
>>7712927Last I heard you gotta get a middleman to buy them off Japanese Amazon for you. If anyone knows a better way though, that's be great.
>>7712931It's these, right? https://www.amazon.co.jp/ハイ-ハードネス-ヒューメラル-ヘッド-結構Hなジョイント/dp/B07T52JS1LThe seller got whatever they needed for export, you can order them direct now. I got their torso joints a few months ago.
>>7712946So, what's the process here? Can I register an account on Japanese Amazon with a US address, then simply order it like a standard Amazon order?
>>7712953As long as it's available for export you should be able to. There are limitations on certain goods, but they have no problem sending items to a foreign address in principle.
>>7711870I give up on 3D printing this large hangar. I just got UBIQUITOUS... secured three with the other 2 to be delivered tomorrow... I'll also customize the lighting because I wanted the Sci-Fi diorama to have similar lighting to a disco...
>>7713198And yes... these Gachapon Gatling Guns are spring loaded and rotates and SHOOTS 1/12 SCALE BULLETS!!!I have so much fun trying to execute GaoGaiGirl here... I think I need execute some Megami Device girls later today... :)
>>7713235She doesn't look unhappy about the whole execution thing.
>>7713236At least she isn't hand cuffed and hung from a hook in the wall
>>7713249Thanks for the great idea Brother :)
>>7713235Are those the Takara Tomy ones?
>>7713351Yes they are Brother...>>7713198and while I'm at it... this Diorama is HUGE!... there is still a few leftover parts and this is only the contents of 1 box... and I ordered 5... three with me and two to be delivered tomorrow and I still need to route and connect the lights...
really loving how the Raptor I ordered from Mandarake got to the US within a week but has been sitting in fucking New York for a week now as well
