The real restock list doko?Xi reprint doko?
What do you have coming in the mail? Snatched this 1/48 YF-23 for 50% off and grabbed the HG xi. >>19764520Banzai has it in stock again
>>19764814Xi and the Mk.V are on the way. HG Sirbine soon.
>>19764507Anyone have this pic without the text? Its sexy.
>>19764831>>19760013the op pics are always from the previous thread anon
Man I promising myself now not to buy any more kits. i currently have 10 in backlog.
>>19764863Kotobukiya better get their asses in gear and reprint that damn rex.
Havent worked on my groupbuild in like 5 days.... someone motivate me......
So P-Bandai American still won’t ship to Canada right ?
>>19764859I've currently got 15. Haven't built them yet because I can't get paints I want or the supplies I need>>19764877What they should do is reprint RAY. I've been playing MGS2 recently and RAY is just so damn cool
>>19764985Same. Every time I sit down to paint someone wants me for something "anon, come help me" "anon, we havnt hung out in ages" "anon, put the pots away"... I just want to paint ffs.
Snapbuilds are best builds.
>>19764877They need to start reprinting more often or Bandai is going to cripple them with the 30mm sisters line.
so anyone getting the new cybustah kit?
>>19764507Thanks for making zero OP. That took way longer than I planned.
>>19765107The older kits looks way better
I'm working on a weeb custom build and didn't realize there was two ways to wear the katana. I'm kind of torn between both, the blade facing up is technically the best way but I like it facing down too
>>19765519id say go for the top one, it uses less wrist movement for drawing, which means that you wear the joint down less in the case of a giant robot
>>19764863Instead of postin you should be buildin anon. I just built the Sazabi, that will keep you busy for awhile
>>19764863I've got 3 pg's in my backlog and 1/35 sinanju bust. I've seen much worse backlogs. The perils of having a good job but family and work responsibilities cut into building time.
>>19764510Making progress. Gonna let this cure then do decals tomorrow.

>>19765424shut up retard
>got back to painting>bought new paints and top coats>shit arrives>its gonna rain this weekendkill me
>>19765766no, yuorop fag
>>19765703Cleaned up a bit. Noticed some overspray.
/gpg/, why does Mr Super Clear top coat smell so good? What part of the building process makes you go pic related?
>>19765519To be honest, down right was "invented" solely to make things harder to perform with pants on the head retarded explanation that it would show true skill to draw blade from such position. Essentially - tryhards of their era.When you draw curved blade, one of advantages is that you can quickly turn it into swing. Getting rid of that is just silly.
>>19765813this intentionally has strawberry scent added to it, I dont know why
>>19765811Honestly, Im shocked by how fast you work. Truly.
>>19765825this guy scares me, he must take Adderall or have an extra chromosome
>>19765027>What they should do is reprint RAY.Yes. They reprint REX commonly enough, but RAY's stupid to find and I seriously regret not getting it earlier.
>>19765905Bro I cant even find the REX, these niggas realy are making it hard to get one
>>19765925REX got a reprint a couple of years ago if not sooner than that. I think it's one of the most common reprints from Kotobukiya. Speaking of reprints I just saw that the IMS 1/100 Bang Doll is getting one soon, which is great. A couple of the nonscale Takemikazuchis are getting them too. Lots of kits I regret not picking up on release are getting them over the next few months and I couldn't be happier. I wish Yui's Takemikazuchi was one of them, but I guess it doesn't matter since I'll paint it anyways and the kits are all the same as far as I know.
How does MG Zeta Gundam compare to RG ? Is it as hellish ?
Looking forward to the upcoming Calamity. How's kits of a same grade? It looks like a good going all out build rather than the usual eh that'll do for a toy robot.
>>19764877Speaking of reprints:FUCKING DO IT ALREADY, PLUM!
>>19765956Both are good. MG just survives multiple transformations. RG unironically looks like shit though because the blue chest armor is too high and the waist armor is too skinny
>>19765905Sahelanthropus is a good catch if you manage to find it at base price
>>19765973I don't really like Sally's design at all. No interest in it. I really wished they'd made the Battle Gear from MGSV, that thing has a cool design still made we never got to drive it.
>>19765987>Battle GearMy wet dream its a Shagohod or the whole Peace Walker AI weapons but Konami its most likely only focused in shit games they are afraid to release them
>>19766019If we're really gonna dream big, I wish they'd actually put out kits for the AC2 and AC2AA cover/intro ACs. Such good designs... Unfortunately AC kits are almost as dead as the franchise itself right now.
>>19764520I think the restock list updated.
>>19765519>>19765820The difference is in the blade proportions. Tachi versus Uchigatana. Tachi were larger and used for armored or mounted combat. Uchigatana were smaller and mainly used on foot, and also associated with robed samurai because armored samurai were phasing out of relevance due to modernization.Just use what you think is cool, it's a weeb build anyway.
>open left hand is exclusive to the P-Bandai version
>>19766123The other PB Messer got it too. I honestly don't know what the fuck they were smoking with the Messer kit, they wasted a shitload of plastic and we got shitty hands. I can't imagine how much plastic the Commander Messer is going to waste.
>>19765703Jesus christ. Did you paint it with a broom? You need to fucking clean up. Im not talking about just the table. Your whole set up is producing dust at this point. I mean cant you fucking see it? Sloppy as FUCK.
>>19766123God the Messer is such a sexy mobile suit.I hope we one day get a MG or RG of it.
>>19765703I love your work but your desk makes me gag
Okay, took me really long time but at least I finished gallery of Kaede Agatsuma in her original armor. Come to think of it, it usually amplify problems with my painting skills... I just hope that next time I will do better. One day.As usual, whole gallery is here:http://www.sabi-sif.mb4.pl/gunpla-mg-rg-other/megami-device-kaede-agatsuma/And here are few selected photos. And, again as usual, I kindly ask for opinions on photo quality. Thanks for replies.
It was also test run of my new D750 (new to me, it was used gear but nearly as new, only 40k photos on account) and boy, it was long time since I actually did such session too...
>>19766207>I hope we one day get a MGI'm waiting the day we get a MG of it too. Idk if I should buy the 2 HG on pbandai site
Sorry for posting more than usual.
For the last ones, what's your opinion on playing with additional effects like this...
>>19766207Would love an MG of this mold specifically.
>>19766268I dunno how you can take so many photos, even one is really tedious and annoying to take
Had some free time left so I figured I'd just get the decals done today and take better pics for entry tomorrow. I'm not gonna enter my SAFEGUARD for reasons.
>>19766068I think there's some kind of error, it shows as updated list yet at the same time it has a lot of same items that were in previous month and it shows HG Deathscythe as a new item
>>19766246>>19766275>>19766273>>19766270Consider a rim light or choosing a background that contrasts better.
>>19766289To be honest, I took around 300 photos total, most being duplicates with different angles or lighting, worked on around 100 and selected 70 to publish.Taking photo is fun, it is setting up "scene" and cleaning after that that is annoying.
>>19766291that penis really ruins it, so does the fat knee fetish
>>19766291You should probably spend more time cleaning up and sanding, that head especially.
>>19766306Her custom armor shoots will be partially done in daylight (not direct sunlight of course) on gray background so that would come out cleaner.
>>19766291>FAZZ looking with disapproval at the backnice
>>19766291You can do much better than this.
>>19765813Does it really? I use tamiya ts80 and it smells like something you'd use to dissolve a body
For anyone who's ever used Sealmodel: how long does it usually take before they ask for money? I made an order with them nearly a month ago and, while I know they've got backlog, I figured they'd at least want to get paid
>>19764510Here's something I made todayI'm sorry
>>19766268I like seeing you improve but you should also look into trying to dust off as much dust as possible
>>19766291Cap is unsecured on that blue bottle.
>>19766660hey, mint oreo gundam is cool

>>19766961Not for me, something must be wrong on your end

>>19766123>>19766207I ended up pre-ordering the command type. I wanted to get the F02 as well but can't afford to right now. Already have the F01.>hope we one day get a MG or RG of itSame. Messer is my favorite MS.
>>19766123That color scheme is just ass. Why does Zeon and it's derivatives insist on it?
>>19767004Issue is chrome reloading it cached through Google docs. Open it in edge/firefox
>>19767031I am using Firefox though. Edge shows the same thing too.
>>19767019fuck off retard
someone sell me a wave sazabi please
>>19767044Suck my dinky.
>>19766387Considering he shat that out in like what, a week? He's done better than most people in this thread on the sole virtue of participating in the groupbuild.
>>19767161What do my builds have to do with me saying that another guy starting and finishing a group build entry in under two weeks time makes him better than the other people here that need the full 3-4 months to finish?
>>19766207I hate the rear thrusters on the HG but they're bearable for this one
>>19767148Working so quickly is precisely why it's lacking quality. Rushing out something doesn't mean shit if the end result is sloppy.
>>19766988it's on nyaa lil niggie. i saw it this morning.

Someone's really bored 2nite.
Bought them both. Hope they are as big as a typical MG.
>>19767493It's a little shorter than some MGs but it's about the same height as the RX-78 and Zaku

>>19767524Yeah, it's like twice the size of the HG Zaku
>>19767532thanks friend that's good to hear
>>19767493>Hope they are as big as a typical MG.
>>19767553sexy big boy
How much better are the new MG kits? At what point should I not bother with older MG kits, like should I not even bother with pre-2017 MG kits because the newer designs are better in all aspects? Same for the RG kits. Did they vastly improve the newer ones?
Painted thrusters silver with yellow underneath. However not happy about the armour grey color.Any recommendations about ankle and top guns? I was thinking base Gunmetal and drybrush with chrome silver but that might be too dark.
>>19767587MGs started getting good in 2003
>>19767587The best MG kits ever made were made between 2007 and 2009. There's actually been a slight decline in quality since.
>>19767493Wait, the red F02 is also P-Bandai? Fuck
>>19767597I personally use gold or bronze for little details
>>19767597i like the little paint apps you added like on the knee armor, but id recommend removing the bazooka seamline, its really visible in that silver part especially
>>19767587>2017more like 2000RGs are all good, gpo1 and sinanju require a bit of reinforcement though
>>19767665Doesn't the Tallgeese blow its own back out, too?
>>19767597Damn that looks amazing
>>19767493Isn't he F02 just a color swap or what?
>>19767725color swap and you pay $2 more to get a piece of plastic to peg on the head because its the commander version.
>>19767732Nah I meant the f2
>>19767732Herp they're both the f2. I meant the non commander version
>>19767736you pay $2 less because you dont get a piece of plastic to peg on the head because its not the commander version.
>>19767736You also get the bell bottom legs option part and a piece of open palm for the left hand in F02
>>19767736Oh just figured it out. It's the legs. Alright. Damn so it's just gonna be a lot of plastic? The commander version has those sexy looking legs in black but it almost looks like that's not a canon configuration and just extra shit left from the regular release lol?
>>19767732It also has the added leg armor.
I've started collecting Gframes. I know they're not good, but I like the quick little builds of swapping things from the display frame to the action frame.
>>19767891those arent even models
>>19764510with glaive drawn
>>19764510Couldn't sleep so I've been up since about 3 am getting the last of the panel lining done and final assembly. It's pretty rough but by god I'm almost finally done with it. Gotta grab some cement from the local hobby shop when it opens to fix one piece that broke then it's decals and final top coat later today.
Too bad that my photoshop skillz are not good enough to properly remove stand from pictures like this. Sucks.
>>19768075Just take a picture of the background without the stand and fag, then put that photo ontop. Then its just a simple use of an eraser bro.
>>19768097Yeah, I heard of that method. Too bad that Darktable don't have layers functionality. Or you can use masks for this but I failed to figure that out so far. /p/ is suffering from their own shitposting problems right now too so /sqt/ threads are hardly usable too.Thanks anyway.
>>19764814MG MK-V and HG Xi should both be here at some points within the next rolling week or so
>>19768139That's what they get for not banning the Sony shill
>>19768170Actually, they got their own /pol/ problems. Honestly, they are everyone's problems right now.
https://imgur.com/a/zTTjjYqThis is my second airbrushing attempt. I painted it entirely with Tamiya Acryllics, topcoated with Mr.Hobby Gloss. I'm aware that the pictures and the posing aren't the best, but I just finished him and wanted to share. I might brush some extra details on at a later point.Any advice would be appreciated!
>>19768202>didn't paint the injection goldyikes
>>19768202>Any advice would be appreciated!the gold on the swords looks really bad, i assume its the base molding color? painting those would go a long waysame with the clear parts. given the richness of the metallic red, the fact that you just left them transparent clear is kind of distracting. id say either go with clear green and paint the underside chrome or paint the top chrome and then clear green
>>19768218Truth be told, I forgot to paint those entirely. I'll wait until I'm painting gold again on another kit, or maybe I'll just brush it on.
Can anyone from the UK recommend a good grey primer? I bought a can from Boyes and I feel like the kit I tried it on feels brittle now.
>>19768075The easiest way in photoshop is select/mark the stand with the object selection tool, then go to Edit > Content Aware Fill, done, ez pz. Results may vary but be sure the stand is clear enough to select and not occupies a large proportion of the photo.
>>19768271the easiest stuff to get is the acrylic rattlecans from GW, but you can probably get the paints from them too. be aware that GW likes to overprice their paints to shit and back so you might be better just ordering some valejo or tamiya primer online.
>>19768139>2020+1>still doesn't hasn't pirated photoshop CC>>19768275Content aware looks like shit on large areas and usually needs to be cleaned up with a brush. Layer method looks better.
>>19768300You forgot to turn off your script
>>19768304Seethe.Check my dubs faggot.
I went back and cleaned up my build. It was admittedly a rush job because I wanted to see if I could build this in under 3 days minus shipping time as a challenge.
>>19768394Sanded some of the more egregious damage and repainted it, then gave it a matte coat as the gloss coat really wasn't doing me any favors.
>>19768405My desk however is still a huge mess, for the record the rest of my house is spotless I'm just a very very busy builder.
>>19768400You forgot to clean that one panel lining splotch, but that's just me being a nitpicky. Looks pretty good with matte coat, nice job
>>19768394>that nose on MayReally reminds me of one of those one piss characters and not in a good way.
>>19768394looks very nice, especially for that speedthat face is fucking terrifying though, jfc
>>19768428I noticed that too.
>sunny and hot when Im at work and sitting in laboratory with only source of light is PC monitor>cloudy, cold and rainy on the weekend when I can make photosClassic.
>>19766289>taking photos is tedious and boring>painting is boring>building gunpla is boringIf you are having these kinds of thoughts, please go ride a bike or something
What do you have to do to avoid orange peel with acrylics? I've been trying low psi and thin coats, but they just don't come out that well.
>>19768674biking is significantly more fun than taking photos tho
>>19768716Fast sweeping motions
Is this another overpriced tools? Should I buy one?
>>19768850Yes it's worth it imo
>>19768881Please tell me you're not shitposting? What does it offer more than your regular sanding paper/sponge?
>>19768887Sorry, I was shitposting. That file you can literally get from Amazon for a few bucks, it's just a glass file. Nothing beats sanding for painting
>>19768850Absolutely not, $30 for a glass file is ridiculous. If you really just have to have one that is branded for hobbyists go for Infini which gets you a set of 3 for $25, or Dspiae which is only $7. But honestly, you'd do just as well getting a generic glass file.
>>19764507Gonna be painting my first kit using spraycans soon, in this style on an infinite justice revive. I'm thinking i'll use krylon primer, some off brand purple i found, black tamiya, off brand red and then probably krylon topcoat, any tips? I'm pretty spooked.
>>19768887Just like >>19768891 said, that's only if you don't paint and you want to restore/buff the plastic to its original shininess (although a regular sandpaper and nail buffer works the same kek) If you paint however, who cares, you'll spray primer on top of it anyway
>>19768850600, 800, 1200, and 2000 sandpapers do me just fine. I'd rather allocate the money to buy more paints. But hey it's yours.
>>19768908>>19768910Not that anon, but what's the lowest grit I can get away with if I paint? I don't want to do 600 -> 2000 sequentially
>>19768887>>19768891>>19768897Phew, good to know and yes I do paint my kit but it's one of those dumb moments where you have a spare change and impulsively want to check out something. Just bought a MG Dynames instead lol thanks anon
>>19768914600 and 800 is fine. You don't need to polish the surface back. Just prime it.
>>19768914Depends, if you're doing heavy customization like panel line scribing and seam welding, I want to absolutely make sure that the surface is smooth and clean afterwards. Other than that, maybeeeeeee 600 and 800 is enough.
>>19767493My F01 Messer is slightly taller than my MG Sandrock.>>19768139Hell there's a website with basically full photoshop functionality now. photopea. Some guy coded it to stick it to adobe.
Schizo says it has some undergated parts and that the pointed ends of the parts are quite sharp, unlike HG and more like MG/RGhttp://schizophonic9.com/re7/hg_cybaster.html
>>19768906It honestly isn’t as scary as you think. Just remember that spray cans don’t have the air flow control of your average dual action air brush, so you need to make quick passes in a line as you’re spraying he parts. Never spray a part with the can just sitting in front of said part. You’ll need sweeping motions.
>>19768271any grey primer on amazon, it's all pretty much the same garbage. never pay more than £5 for a big can.
>>19767587Screws are a good cutoff point, so early 2000:s.
>>19769076Screws aren't bad though, at least not on kits from G
>>19769076The Ground Gundams are still largely solid kits. Obviously they don't have all the bells and whistles of modern ones and you've got a lot of seams to deal with you wouldn't now, but they're entirely functional.
>>19769076Zeta pluses have screws and they are very good kits
>>19769126>>19769149>>19769158How is the Kampfer? I've been thinking that I made a mistake by getting it because of the screws so I've let it collect dust in my backlog.
>>19769165It's been almost 20 years since I built the MG Kampfer. At the time I thought it was alright. It's molded in the wrong colour and there are some irritating seams but there are much worse models. I'd rank it beneath any of the kits mentioned, but not so bad I'd say it must be avoided. Really does deserve a 2.0 though.
>>19768716Use more thinner.
>>19769126they should go back to screws because in a lot of cases they're just better, I wish they used metal parts for general internal mechanics you can't see and stuff like very sharp thin details, and yes you can sand metal.
>>19768906>>19768991Adding one important thing the previous anon left out: Rattlecan: hold far away from the subject you are paintingAirbrush: hold close.If you use a can too close you will absolutely drench your parts and you'll get runs and loss of surface detail.
Alclad first timer here.Does any gloss black work for the primer (like mr color gx)? Do I have to sand the gloss black a bit before using alclad on it? How do I clean my airbrush afterward?
I swear to God I went to my local hobby shop just to get some plastic cement and a little bit of paint for my next project. Things escalated quickly. The only gunpla I usually see there are a bunch of SD kits and one RX-79-2 HG that's been there forever. Today they had two of the Xi/Penelope kits, a stand alone Xi, the Kshatriya, and a bunch of MG's I wanted. My poor wallet wasn't prepared. Got so excited I forgot to buy the cement and had to turn around and go back.
>>19769247how much was that set?

>>19769298Water. It's too damn hot.
>>19769368I go to the gym for 2 hours a day
>>19769371see you at the next zumba dance class anon
>>19769388That is way too specific for it not to be coming from somewhere.
>>19769368>FattiesI prefer you use my proper pronouns powerlifter/powerliftxers
>>19769410>chubby pasty white/asian nerdsLiterally none of those words describe me
>>19769410This post makes no sense. How am I magically going to learn a joke just by lifting? I don't go on /fit/ and I don't have any friends who go to the gym. Also I never even mentioned lifting so WTF why are you so desperate for negative interactions?
>>19769410Learn to read, he said he goes to the gym for an hour a day, not that he lifts for an hour a day. This is what happens when you can type faster than you can think.
>>19769464>Also I never even mentioned lifting so WTF why are you so desperate for negative interactions?> if you actually lifted, you would have knownThis seems more like an explanation of why you don't get the joke.
>>19769452>NONE of those words describe meBend over, its buck breaking time.
>>19769483There's no need to greentext the same quote twice. Everyone knows what you're implying. The point we're trying to make is that you're acting like a little brat for no reason and that your 'jokes' don't make any sense.
>>19769491I doubt your tiny pecker could make it past my thick chocolate cakes
>>19769491ehh, that anon is probably a scrawny pajeet >>19769478why even go to the gym 1-2 hours a day if not to lift? walk on a treadmil at the lowest setting and get the free bagels and pizza at planet fittness? Anyway lets get back on track to model kit discussion
>>19769496Please. He offered you an explanation, to a joke you didn't understand, and now you're acting pissy because you took offense to it.
>>19769507I DO lift but that isn't the point. My whole point is that first anon just assumed I'm part of the 'weightlifting community' (whatever the fuck that means) and made a dumb joke that doesn't make any sense. Who the fuck goes to the gym and ONLY lifts for 2 hours? That's so retarded. And then your faggot ass jumps in and adds more fuel to the fire while pretending to want to stay on topic
>>19769513The only thing I'm offended about is being accused of being part of the weightlifting community. That is by far the gayest fucking thing anyone has ever said to me.
>>19769519I laughed but...>I'm offended about is being accused of being part of the weightlifting community.Why though?
Another week, another lift/gym discussion in /gpg/.
>>19769527he probably just goes to planet fitness
>>19769529There's more overlap between /fit/ and /gpg/ than you know.
>>19769527I just think it's really lame and stupid for someone to assume that if you're into something that you're automatically part of their 'community' and know all their inside jokes. It reminds me of furries and other fandoms.I don't go to the gym because I like it. I hate every second of it. I refuse to go on fitness forums because of faggots like you who constantly have to talk about it like it's their entire life and then act like I'm the weird one for not understanding their obscure references to things nobody would ever give a fuck about
>>19769529Im strong as fuarkk. Mogs all the other mobile suits
so are we gonna get the Hathaway version of the Gustav or was this just for promotion?
>>19769539I'm not the guy that told the joke. He probably stopped around here:>>19769472>then act like I'm the weird one for not understanding their obscure references to things nobody would ever give a fuck aboutI think you're a weirdo because you're mad about a joke that wasn't funny.
>go the gym>low gravity on the shuttle so my numbers are not bound to earth>little fucking twink comes in asks if I'm done with the kettlebells>little bitch probably has a girl's name>"I have never outlifted anyone" I say in such a cool way>he'll be thinking about that line for the next 25 years I bet
>>19769555It's too fucking easy of a change not to, but it's also too easy of a change to worry about getting too.
>>19769555There's already one. It's a p-bandai though so no, we won't get one
>>19769577The P-Bandai one uses the old style head. The animated HF design uses a Dora Karl head with the rear-facing antenna instead of a half v-fin, and uses a backpack mounted shield like the Unicorn/Narrative design rather than shoulder mounted like the classic G Gen one.
>>19769574i think id rather pay to import P bandai for this than another messer. the new skirts, head and shoulders make it look alot less unicorny
>>19769555That's just a custom made by some lady named Nozomi Nakai
>>19769247Nice, bet your shop was happy with that one
>>19766207I love the design so much, I wanna get the F02 type and go all out on it.

What’s the best HG GM kit?
>>19769765gustav karl with enough mental gymnastics

>>19769769he said HG anon
>>19769765Legit the Gm/Gm from build fighters. HGUC GM ground type a very close second.
>>19769773all the GM HGs suck
>>19769781well....the HG Powered GM is decent.
>>19769777>unironically recommending "Off Model: The Kit">>19769787yeah, and note how you said "decent" and not "good"

Dammit I lost the snout on my Zaku II tri stars origin version. I can't find the little baggy I would have put it in ANYWHERE. How gay
>>19769765GM Sniper IIStark JeganGustav Karl
>>19769765I'm building the RGM-79 powered right now in that delightfully terribly bright orange as we speak and it holds up very well.Cardigan is funGuard is amazing, I want to build another one
>>19767587honestly pretty much everything predating the first 2.0 was sketchy. You don't really get the luxury of a 2.0 for a lot of kits predating the Mk 2 and that's a damn shame. There's still some okay kits prior to that. People like the Zeta A1, the dom wins a pass but the 1.5 makes it redundant, ground gundam is kind of shit but looks okay, same with the gouf custom. Guncannon aged well from what I can tell. The RX-78-4/5 are both pretty nice color separation wise (this is about when bandai was getting the hang of molding color accuracy I'd argue) but articulation sucks...they could really use a 2.0. Once we hit 2005 and got the 2.0 kits...things started to click a little more. I'd say 2008 is when things finally got good though with the 2.0 Zaku frames and RX-78-2 just looking through releases. Yeah there is plenty of duds but generally color separation is good from 2008 onwards and things look good with minimal paint apps. So in summary...>if you don't want to do a lot of paint work to get something to look good, don't buy anything before the mk 2 2.0>if you don't mind a little paint work but don't want to do fucktons of masking, anything from the mk 2 2.0 to the Gundam 2.0 is gonna be fine. Obviously the Zaku II 2.0 is the goat>anything from the Gundam 2.0 onwards will be pretty color acc and won't take a lot of work to make look good out of the box.I don't care much about pieces fitting like shit because glue is magic
>>19769765GM cardigan is pretty nice, plus if you want you can build it as a regular powered GM and have a bunch of bits and bobs for bashing
is the gustav karl on p-bandai just a color swap? am I missing something?

>>19769833What the fuck is that panel lining?
>>19769853it's dalong newfriend. he purposefully uses black panel lining so you can see the panel lines in his reviews clearly
>>19769833Nah, 4/5 need 1.5s. not 2.0s.
>>19769862i don't see why they wouldn't just get a 2.0. Just take all the parts, slam em on the 2.0 frame, we're done.
>>19769853its called the dalong special boy
>>19769841The shield connects to the shoulder differently but that's about it. I'd wait for the one with the backwards antennae if you want a cooler blue one.
>>19769765For me it's the GM Type C/GM Powered
>>19769900o my orange peel
>>19769946Why do you never say this to pics that actually have orange peel? Do you intentionally only say that to pics that don't?
>>19769841>>19769886It also has a different head. The PB one has a single vulcan rather than double like the UC/NT ones.
>>19770154Do you not know orange peel is? That looks smooth but kinda thick. There's no orange peel at all.
>>19769865Because the 2.0 frame is too thick for a katoki design
>>19769900Please stop using acrylic metallics
>>19769810be an anti-snoot chad and chop off the rest of it and make your Zaku look better
>>19770294What does a Zaku even look like without a nose?
>>19770319A miserable little pile of secrets.
>>19770154You realize that's just the light reflecting off the metallic pigments on that part right? Here's a slightly different angle. >>19770284That was done with lacquer Tamiya cans, it's been a few years since I did that one but I'm almost certain that's just plain old gunmetal. I don't think there's a single bit of acrylic paint on that.
>>19770328Never seen lacquers with flakes that crusty. Honestly some kind of record.
>>19764507Whats the difference between Acrylics and Textil paints in gunpla?
>>19770448I do not like this.

Mr Super Clear
Hey guys, if I fuck up my masking a bit, is it salvageable by handpainting the affected area?
Learn From The Best.
>>19771082Yea but I feel like sanding the bleeding off is a better option
>>19771082>salvageableyou act like fucking up your masking destroys your kit.just fucking redo it if you mess up.
>>19771022I look at my Messala box everyday and try to think of a good color palette too. Might just go with standard colors, but choose a more vibrant purple.
Indog here coming back with a quick paint job and decal for kyriosPaint result was horrid in most places, and decal was nightmare to put on with uneven paint.
So, is the MGEX worth it? How's it? I want an Unicorn but don't really know which kit to get.
>>19771266if you can afford it, buy it.
>>19771266Everyone agrees the MGEX is the best. PG is great too if you have the space for it. RG is also really good but small. The regular MG has shitty knees. HG is ok.
>>19771266RG is the best version of the unicorn
>>19771320It's literally the PG but shrunk down so yeah it's amazing for its size
>>19771266Kit is awesome and doubles as a nightlamp
>>19771266No. It looks almost identical to the MG, except it has lights, but the issue is that it looks horrible when they're off, since the frame is colorless. That would be fine, but the LEDs are battery powered and not USB, therefore can't be left on for long.Really it's just a flawed kit all around. If you really want an LED gimmick, go PG, since if they're off it doesn't look like garbage. Plus you can get the Daban LEDs with their mini USB port.
>>19771324That's not true at all, PG has unchained and a magnetic horn
>>19771362Or you can just fucking paint the frame.
>>19771423But what about the fucking LEDs that fucking change fucking color?
>>19771362The MGEX has better knees than the MG and you can just paint the clear psychoframe like you're supposed to anyway
>>19771423In other words, it takes more effort to make the frame look passable. And that will ruin the LED colors in all likelihood. And there's the fact you could scratch the paint transforming it.>>19771431As I and >>19771430 said, that's going to limit the colors for the LED then.
>>19771430What about them?
>>19771433There's a scene in Unicorn where the psychoframe has no color and it looks badass af
>>19771362>he can't solder two wires into a 5v wall transformer
>>19771431its clear so that the LEDs shine through better.though honestly, the colorless spychoframe isnt even that bad looking.its just one of those deals where you have to be super autistic about detail to be mad about.
>>19771362it's an entirely new mold with different proportions so you're wrong.
What the fuck am I looking at
>>19771324the PG has like 3.5x the parts, different proportions, several mechanical features absent from the RG, fully part separated psychoframe parts, gating for LED wires that doesn't hinder the engineering of the model etc.don't see at all how it's a "downscaled PG"
Question for how to clean gunpla fo dust.I was thinking of using like a make up brush (pic related).Or shall i buy Tamiya Anti dust brush -- is that worth it?
