>>
>>7733938
That’s the main reason why I got into building these in the first place. Coming from gunpla customizations and kitbashing it was a pretty easy transition to start making customs off these things. I picked up sculpting and started learning garage kit model making techniques to get the results I want. Right now I’m trying to come up with a way to consistently create a bunch of “base bodies” cheaply that mimic the articulation of these MDs. So far I’ve designed half of my joints with a mix of hobby base joints and neodymium magnets. I’m just trying to find a material durable enough to handle being posed that’s not resin.

And there's 0% chance at all that the boxing and shipping is the bottleneck in the system. Absolutely unthinkable.

>>
>>7737866
True, 1/144 scale models would be enough for me. Theres an Escaflowne model coming out sometime i think but i would much rather have the mooks, still getting it hoping they get the message.

>>7737954
>>
>>7733529
I forgot all about her until I got an email from HLJ about being unable to process my payment (good) and I'm not even sure I want her anymore. I think I'll pass and try to cancel it while money hasn't exchanged hands yet. It looks like the other _dress figure has the same kind of face which is really a shame when the face sculpt really makes or breaks it for me.
>>
>>7738232
Or you could just put some other megumis head on the body.
>>
>>7738061
>>7737866
Escaflowne was really good and an iconic part of the 90s for me. But I can see that it might have sorta limited appeal for the public at large. The style was extremely unusual for the time and stands out even more now.
>>
>>7738061
These legs are aesthetic as fuck. I wanted to make something similar, but with claws for my Inno. Gonna think where to get those... Perhaps there is a FA I could buy as a donor?

That's not a stock Invert faceplate, is it?

The fact that garbage Gundam Wing show gets to be more recognition than Escaflowne makes me sad.

What do y'all think?
>>
>>7738606
Metal could be thinner
>>
>>7738606
>>7738611
a LOT thinner. HOWEVER metal paint in general tends to be rougher to hand paint then other paints.
>>
>>7738620
Might as well get an airbrush right off, hand painting is 2hard
>>
>>7738623
Metallic paints tend to clog airbrushes real fast.
>>
>>7738548
I can forgive Wing for that. It's an extremely nostalgic series in the west for being the entry to Gundam for the majority of people watching cartoon network at the time. It is also my belief that Wing was the PERFECT intro to gundam in that time span for the west. It does not age well this is true, but it brought in more female fans then other series would have thanks to the five pretty boy hero theme meshing very well with the boy band craze of the late 90s. It also worked well with the fact the only other anime most of us were exposed to at the time were stuff like DBZ, so the crazy powerful robots meshed well with those expectations as well.

It was VERY well timed
>>
>>7738628
Can't you just disassemble and clean it? I've done it a couple times already, seems easy enough.
>>
>>7738636
Certainly, but it gets annoying, especially if it clogs right in the middle of painting.
>>
>>7738353
You are correct Brother... I replaced it because the stock one looked a bit dead inside...
>>
>>7738620

>>7738611
I used gundam markers sense I have those colors in those only, then I used a brush to spread it out. I'd like to do some kind of wrapping around the handle but can't think of something that would look good.
>>
>>7738629
>It does not age well this is true
Man i was hating it from like episode 4 or 5, nothing made sense to me, the characters were unrelatable, unlikable and it felt like it was made to pander to fujoshis. Escaflowne feels like a show for girls with some robots thrown in for good measure but the characters arent absolute tossers in convoluted scenarios like Wing. Endless Waltz was ok though, not great but hit enough good notes to make me ignore whatever stupid shit goes on.
>>

Get your hands on pic related and LIGHTLY treat it with some steel wool when it's FULLY cured
>>
>>7738606
It's thicc as hell, and not good painting technique you should carry on, but I'm gonna say this looks sorta interesting. Almost gives the blade a rough cast iron kinda look.
>>
>>7738746
I'm watching Wing for the first time (since I didn't have cable TV when it was airing on Toonami) and I'm finding it hilarious. That bit with that edgelord Heero opening his chute too late and tumbling down the mountain killed me.
>>
>>7739292
This shit is the best chrome finish you can get, but regrettably, even after fully curing (and I waited like 2 weeks to be sure) it still loses its chrominess if you touch it. Same goes for spraying any kind of topcoat over it, it just turns into a very shiny but no-longer-chromey silver. This stuff is really best used for parts you will never have to touch again, like cockpits or cameras sealed under clear visors.
>>
>>7739369
I've heard the same but I'm working with an artist supply store on finding a suitable clear coat, so far we're trying Liquitex

On their youtube vids they recommend X-22, other users comment Alclad Klear also holds up so.. Stay tuned for a buttload of spoons

I really only did it because I had the pens available and wanted see what the metal look would be like, I really wanted to put the gold trim on though to at least get her sword somewhat matching her color scheme. I'll look for better paint if I decide to do the beach ninjas sword.

Please report back with results when you get them. I'd love to find something suitable to turn buttery flavor Gourai into something properly shiny and metallic

There are "master grade" skill to top coat chrom. Using gas for lighters (evaporate very fast) as solvent, and begin with many dry coats from far distance (so topcoat touch chrome when solvent evaporate on the fly) and enough time to allow them dry out fully. It became matte. And final wet coat to get gloss. In the end you achieve sort of gloss shell over chrom which remains untouched by solvent to prevent damage.

Okay guys, help me out here:
After several scratchbuilding and modding attempts, I'm stumped trying to improve Baselard's waist/hip bend to make it bend as far as MD waists forwards and backwards. However I'm reserving WISM parts for swapping out Zelfikar from waist down to thigh.

Plan B is this:
How good are the OOB parts of Zelfikar to do waist bends forwards and backwards?

Previous attempts were heat press copies of pelvis parts. They didn't sit right on Baselard's waist and rattled --- no idea how to make an attachment if the copy parts had to be cemented together. I detached the skirt tips off Baselard to attempt this.

Experiment brushing them on plastic spoons, first extract the paint onto a palette, container, whatever and dip the brush in. Wonder if there is a thinner compatible with Gundam marker paint, that would make life easier.

>>7738274
Look into the Iron Blooded Orphans gunpla line. A lot of them have crazy feet and legs with similar aesthetics. I remember Gunpla legs tend to be fairly easy to mod onto Shinkis and that should carry to these lines as well especially the MDs.

Might depend on the katana, maybe even has to be a wakizashi instead, but since this is a 1/100 scale set it should at least be long enough for the average katana, width might be a different story.

Obviously the katana can't be so cheap it lacks a proper tang, but oddly enough a shockingly large number of the cheap katanas are actually very decent swords for their prices in terms of the blade compared to other types of swords of the same pricing.

Keep an eye out on Mandarake, I picked up my Proxima last year for like 3500.

There's a Proxima now on Mandarke for 4500, and Spinel(red version) with a torn box for 5000. I don't know if that's more expensive than you wanted to pay, but I don't think it's that bad a deal.

Centauri is really weird in her full gear. Not only is it impossible to stand without all four legs, but they just look freaky and the hooves don't really fit flat. It's like they have a slight curve or angle to them so it'll be a bit wonky. If you get her gear in the backpack configuration it's crazy back heavy. At least Eukrante levels of back heavy and not being able to stand by herself. By herself though she's max cute with the ponytail.

The trick is understanding the center of gravity.

Granted with the foot so far forward closer in line with the center of her body it might be possible, but it just feels off to me.

Here is my opinion on what happened between Kotobukiya and Konami :
Koto started to release their FAG with Gourai and it sold pretty well but they were the only one who knew about it. No one believed in this new line back then. Koto then wanted to buy the Busou Shinki line from Konami and the two seemed to agreed but no contrat was signed yet. That's when Kotobukiya made a big mistake and continued to released their FAGs with Stylet and Baselard where people got aware of the success of the kits. If you guys remember Amimi site literally got DDOS due to people trying to order them also Kotobukiya financial report confirmed the success of the Frame Arms Girl line. Obviously this didn't go unnoticed by Konami and they backpedaled about giving away the Busou Shinki line. As greedy as they are, Konami decided they wanted a share if Kotobukiya were to make the new Busou Shinki. I could pretty much see Koto getting super mad about this but they probably agreed.
This lead us to where we are with Koto not making the original Busou Shinki because of Konami. This is of course pure speculation from me but that's what I feel seeing all this.
>>
>>7746601
I'm not sure that Koto sent out replacements for the mismatch or not, but I can't visibly tell, personally

Kotobukiya is basically flailing around with the technology and entertainment side of the business, there is now way they can bring Busou Shinki back to its heyday period.
Koto is also pretty much broke at the moment so they need to slow down development.

Well, I don't really know what really happened to the original BS but I'm guessing it started to sell less and less and that's what lead Konami to stop producing them. I can't really blame them if that's what made them stop it.

I just started buying figures/model kits etc like three years ago so I totally miss buying any BS which I'm angry of seeing how their prices skyrocketed.
"Time" was also probably why the BS line didn't sell. Konami made them in time where people weren't aware or interested in them yet. Twitter and all other social device were just growing too I guess.
In the end, Kotobukiya managed to release their FAGs at the right time.

>>7747571
Do you have source on that because someone made a thread about Koto's financial year on mfc and from what I read they are not in difficulties.
Kotobukiya got less money than their previous year but they are not in the red and are still making profit.

>>7747636
That's not really what I see right now. They seems to have a lot of things going on. They are pushing their Hexa line, the MD line is getting more and more girls, they are making more m.s.g stuff, new Frame Arms are still coming and obviously Frame Arms Girl will still be here with the new anime coming.
>>
>>7747746
>I don't really know what really happened to the original BS

They lost their factory in china.

>but I'm guessing it started to sell less and less

The line never sold well until the anime dropped, there was pictures of stacks of shinkies selling for 1k yen

> I can't really blame them

Konami might not have done the best decisions but at least they are not EA who are alienating their own franchises.
But like I said bad timing for releasing their stuff and as of late Konami is actually working on a new BS game.

What you could do it potentially extend the hair using expoxide putty and then paint it so it’s all one color. I’ve seen people on instagram pull that off with great success to FAGs. Pic related didn’t make it longer but you can apply the same idea.

I encountered some minor flashing on the E runners, including a bit on the shoulder pegs. Once I trimmed that off, she was fine. Engineering is pretty much the same as a Megami, with some changes to how the joints are attached to her body but not really any changes to the joint structure itself, for better or for worse. You can basically treat her as another Megami.

Basically. I started playing during the Beta for the US servers (RIP Loy/a/lty). I loved the character designs, the customization ability for the bots (being able to completely retexture your bots, up to and including creating lewd or risque skins, even if you had to be really careful about when you put them on) and even reashape the physical components to create new designs on some(not all) was a big part of it.

The rest was derping around the Union zones and occasionally, just occasionally, actually playing the game.

In my opinion this is a good thing, you don't want to flood the market and give people fatigue. Last year more kits were releasing than I could afford to keep up with, let alone build in the year. A slow down gives someone like me time to catch up, or more time to get invested in the smaller selection of releases for this year. When it's flooding it's hard to care because there's just too many. At least that's how my collecting brain works.
>>7747754

That's one of the thing I also hate with Kotobukiya exclusives. You'd have to use a proxy/forwarder to get them since they only sell them on their shops or if you are patient then wait for Mandarake to get one. Mandarake generally manage to have Koto's exclusives too.

Dragondress Sophia's ABS body feels like Alphamax used a softer blend than Kotobukiya.

Also her parts are a pain to seamweld, and the wrist pegs need to have that snapfit groove that Koto uses.

I love the way her knee and shoulder assemblies pan out with a sculpt different from the Megami D structure, and her DX boobs are quite well-made and work well with her stock bra top to give her a cast-off style that is oddly cute.

Masaki made her dragon/armor parts look pretty good, and the silver plastic has a nice gloss finish.

Styko and especially Gourai were in dire need of updates, their engineering was incredibly dated compared to the newer releases.
Materia pretty much got replaced by Innocentia, and Architect got Inno's new shoulders on the recolors already.

I see. I have all the anime girls and a couple of the newer ones but I [spoiler]haven't even opened their boxes[/spoiler] so I wasn't sure what the differences were. Guess I can use the old Gourai and Stylet for spare parts.

I like original Stylet's cocky smiling faceplate more than XF-3's, honestly. I'd use that one.

Nope, I got it from the Cyberstep website, They used to have a big archive of official art for, like, fansites and stuff hosted. It's all be scrubbed with the death of the game.

All FAG faces are. Unless they've started changing things recently.

welp tried modelling it.
Some of the curves and grooves are going to be difficult to print.

Nice. You could try slicing the model into components to be assembled after printing, to make it easier.

Cosmic Break has a lot of wacky equippable weapons that don't have pictures and stuff in the wikis, sad to say. I'll have to really dig thru CB fan forum for any pics of interesting gear. Off the top of my head there's Therese's giant crossbow and Sylvia's giant axe and Lux Eques' blade shield. There's also school Eve's dual guns and Eve's Ruin Blade.

Uhh, Domiclown's card throwing arm and there's the K-shield, uhh, Misty Raven's scythe? Ivis' toothpick sword of cheese and spam?
