That means any suit that either has "GM" in the name or in its model number is A-OK to use. This includes>Normal OYW GMs and their variants (ie. Sniper, Cannon, Interceptor)>Post-OYW GMs like the Powered GM or GM Quel>GM II/GM IIIs>Suits from the RGM family of suits (Jegans, Jestas, Heavyguns, Jamesguns, Javelins)>SD GMsConversely, this excludes:>UC suits without the RGM model number (ie: Nemo (MSA-003), Gun Blastor (LM111E03))>GM equivalents from other Gundam timelines (Daughtress, Windam, Adele, etc)You can still source parts from other kits for your builds, but the basis of your entry has to be at least 50% GM when it comes to the original parts used. The 50% limitation refers only to the body itself, you're free to do what you wish with your suit's equipment.Send all photos (Both WIPs and Finished photos, with multiple angles/poses) and a short description of your build to email@example.com once you're finished.START - 11/1/21END - 2/28/22

>>20408599>no RG hi nu reprintsAt least the zeta plus is getting a reprint
>>20408126The peg is pretty solid so it supports the weight of the pod fine, the issue is that it connects to a hole in the side and the weight causes it to turn downwards on its own.
>>20408701yeah the shitty unicorn version which doesn't have the smart beam gun
Any good Black Friday sales for models?
>>20408763lmao you wish
>>20408763yeah anything that isn't gunpla
>>20408763Are you really expecting sales on Gunpla when they're flying off the shelves in such a manner that retailers are struggling to keep stock even with full priced kits?
>>20408763here's your plamo black Friday sale:https://newtype.us/c/blackfriday
>try to glue plaplate parts together>notice that I barely can smell the cementNow Im scared. How would I tell now if I should stop already? Inhaling too much will end up bad.
Any suggestions for how to replace the back of the Nobel Gundam's head? I kinda wanna do what this guy did but it seems plaplate and putty is my only option
>>20408956You probably just caught Covid
>>20408763Gundam Planet might have a 10% off code, who knowstheres also free shipping from >P-Bandai
>>20408978I had common cold two weeks ago and it's just one symptom and I had two shots anyway.Back on topic - cement is crucial for work but fumes are toxic. How to actually increase work safely, since at winter keeping window open isn't very nice.
hi /m/ I got the new Initial D AE86 model kit and it is my first time doing anything like this.I got a cheap model kit tool set on amazon and GSI Creos Aqueous colors and Mr. Color colors and the hobby shop people told me I can't mix and match colors which I get but I apparently can't use a paint brush for the Mr. Color colors? Also, in pic related, the places where it says to color are only the places I circled in red and not the entire piece right? Sorry for being a noob, any help is appreciated.
>>20409017>Aqueous colorsthose are water based so you shouldn't mix them with regular Mr. Color since those are lacquer. You shouldn't paint lacquer with a brush because of how fast it dries. I don't understand the last question.
>>20409017make sure you actually sand off the chrome plating on the points of contact before gluing so the plastic will actually bong and snap together. I don't want you to come back here tomorrow crying WAAAH THESE PIECES WONT FIT TOGETHER EVEN THOUGH I DIDNT READ THE FUCKING INSTRUCTIONS WAAAH
>>20409070For that top right circle, I only paint where I circled and not let's say, where it's pointing to 14 correct?>>20409078Thanks for reinforcing it
>>20409091I usually paint the entire thing just in case anything shows through
>>20408601Done with my group build submission wat do u guys think? 1st time weathering BTW
>>20409115It’s just a weathered jegan
>>20409115It's just a half weathered Jegan, why didn't you also do his arms, shoulders and upper chest?
>>20409122>>20409126Stop gaslighting me, that's clearly a fucking Nemo
>>20409115I like it. I would also add a cloak, looks like a VERY cloakable figure. Just imagine, the little tundra camoed cloak swishing in the wind.
>>20409132Lmao I’m a moron I meant jesta, but my point stands. I haven’t gotten past the frame on my group build yet but at least I’m putting a lot of effort in.
So, the airbrush hasn't even arrived yet and I'm already pondering just biting the bullet and buying some mr. color instead of my original cheap acrylics plan. I'm getting RGB, White, Black, Orange Yellow, and some metallics. Am I fine buying regular metalics, or should I dish a bit out more for GX Metal Black and GX White Silver? I'm already going broke anyways. They only have regular C9 Gold, so that one will have to do.
>>20408701Wait what? Is that on the info in the OP? Never used it just point me in the right direction please
>>20409179there is a link to the monthly restock list in the op if you would just take the time to read it
>>20409204Yeah I'm doing it know, I forgot I learned chinese the other day.
>>20409213neat, that'll actually help since Japanese uses a lot of the same characters/sounds and most of the things in the pdf are phonetically written out
>>20409213>into gunpla but cant even read at least hiragana and katakana
How long does it usually take for monthly gunpla restocks to reach the US?
>>20409275depends on the store. if your local store doesn't order anything then they won't get anything.
>>20409275in normal times, 1-2 months. in current times it's probably more like 2-3. maybe longer.
>>20408993Use a mask
>>20409115Reminds me of how things get covered in snow after a snow storm
Shitposting aside, I've read the fucking monthly restock, how does it works? Do I order on a Bandai site or what?
>>20409335No, that's just the schedule for when they leave the factories and hit retailers (in japan at least).You order like normal, the list is meant to tell you when the kit is likely to get back on preorder (or in case of backorders, when it gets shipped).
>>20409345So I should order from jap sites, is HLJ any good?
>>20409142don't forget surfacer and matte/gloss clear too
>>20409370Yup, I've actually already bought the matte/gloss clear. There was no stock anywhere local, so found I Super Clear GX 113 and 100 at an indonesian shop in shopee. Shipping is free, so it was actually pretty cheap, I just hope the seller packs it well enough. They also have Mr Color Thinner and Primer Surfacer 1000 where I'm buying the paints from. Sadly there's no Leveling Thinner or Surfacer 1500, so I'm going to make do with those.
>>20408975I used the back head of a gbn base gundam. It's not a perfect fit but pretty close.
>>20409359HLJ and Amiami are pretty good in general, yes.If you want more in depth opinions, ask other anons, I haven't bought plamo in years sadly.
>>20409142The regular metallics are fine. The GX line is just lacquers with a slightly less toxic formula. Clear or metallic green is good to have too for eyes. When I started airbrushing I made the mistake of ordering tons of paint that I never use, like flat variants of colors before I realized I could just make the gloss ones flat by applying however much matte coat I want. Now I order based on what my next build is planned to be (which colors I plan to use or want to try out).
The shoulder armor on my RG Exia keeps popping off. Is this how all RGs are?
>>20409596Part don't pop off on other grades?
quick question, what the fuck are these? did bandai re-release the original 80s kits or something? and where can i get them; this is not my haul.
>>20409702okay, maybe not a quick question.
>>20409702I think usagundam has a ton of them, gundamplanet as well.
>>20409596No, just some of them. Especially the early ones. >>20409685RGs do it more often, especially the early ones. I think starting from the RG Crossbone is when RGs started to get really good. Everything before that one is hit or miss when it comes to parts popping off when looked at.
>>20409596Thats one of its "sickness" because of the gn cable it has. What Im dissapointed about it is how limited it is in articulation considering its a close combat gundam
Third party MG
Will the MG Zeta Plus ever get a reprint?
>>20409775is that the Daban Sazonbe?! So the legends are real......
>>20409775Re:100? Or is it using the MG Sazabi frame?
>>20409741I bought the Repair III conversion kit for it, seemed to help its articulation a bit more.
Would you guys recommend the MG Freedom 2.0, even with its apparent hip joint issue? Heard so many stories of people just breaking the hip joint, seems kinda off putting.
>>20409854Genuinely whoever designed the Re/100 Jagd was forced to do so at gun point. Some of those nubs were out of contempt. And then Daban releases a beautiful inner frame Jagd.
>>20409873There's no such thing as bad nubs, only bad skill of the person cleaning them up.
>>20409878>There's no such thing as a bad nub>t. did not built the Re 100 jagd doga
>>20409702Yes those do appear to be reprints of the 80s kits. One of the nice things about gunpla is that very few kits aren't reprinted, although if you want an obscure or old kit, you might be waiting awhile.
>>20409851I haven't built mine yet but apparently you can just be careful with it and it's fine, or if you're really paranoid about it, you can pin it with a brass rod to fix it
So are high grade kits the best for playing around with? I'm planning on buying and building a Wing Zero for my younger cousin for Christmas since he really liked the transformation.
>>20409887And yet I've built monogram bomber kits from the 1970s. I think I know what I'm talking about here.
>>20409930Sorry sir, but your experience of not having built the Jagd Doga is not very convincing.
>>20409927As long as they’re not smashing the shit in it or dropping it, it should be fine. Otherwise, toys like Gundam Universe work better but they can’t transform.
>>20409798we don't know
>>20409930Ah yes, the "elite hobby for elite gentlemen such as myself", fuck right off you fucking faggot.
>>20409930If there's no such thing as a bad nub then what's the point in bringing up kits from the 70s?
>>20409070aqueous colors are not fully water-based acrylic. they are semi-lacquer based like tamiya acrylics. they will mix with mr.color paints just fine if you use lacquer thinners like mr. leveling thinner
>>20409115looking frostysome spots still clearly look like plastic though, especially the gun
>>20409996Needs more verniers.
still waiting on that perfect gundam reprint
Holy crap look at that huge box
anybody here built this?
>>20409549Got any pics? I'd love to see
>>20410443Look at filename.
>>20409702Those look like awesome kits to retrofit with hyper realistic detail.
I bought picrel at some local shopdid I make a mistake? I didn't know there was an RG version...
>>20410478Yes you did, the RG is far superior.
>>20410478You're good, Unicorn HGs are pretty solid. They're just not transformable like the RG, that is all
>>20410478Better proportions and face than the RG so you did good.
Man I fucking love scale models already, I haven't been excited about a hobby this much in a while.Guess I'll have to learn how to build dioramas next so I can get my guys a hangar or something to display them.
Oh fuck yes they're already here!
>>20410478Some of the parts aren't very secure and like to fall off when posing like the open section of the rear skirts so you'll have to glue then in place
>>20409927awww so wholesome, here, have some of that sweet reddit gold, my friend
Why won't Bandai just buy Daban.
>>20409142I got into airbrushing for the first time last year (haven't touched a model kit in probably 8 months) but I went straight into mr color laquers with an eBay booth and a respirator I was set to go. Got the hang of it pretty fast, all their products I used were great.. surfacers, levelling thinners, clear coats
>>20408599you need to put a resistor in the LED circuit to dim it a little bitor paint the inside of the "head" black to absorb some of the lightunless that effect is intentional
Is it okay to apply a gloss coat to pieces still on the sprue, or would that fuck it right up?
>>20410826the problem with doing things on the runner is that dealing with nubs afterwards is going to damage whatever you did.
>>20410156This is in comparison to japanese ""male""". It's probably just like a regular HG box for us, americans.
>>20410411Have a shitty phone pic. Obviously I never finished this, but I think it gets the point across.
I'm going to a bandai popup store near me down in san diego this friday to get that clear mechanical MG unicorn, what time do you think I should show up by if I want to get it? I assume a few hours early, but I'm not sure.
https://youtu.be/iY0I8WyWTps>Have to remove the dyna soldier’ arms entirely to gattai.>Dyna striker need to be stripe down of outer armor too.No wonder the kit look sleeker. Thank god I didn’t preorder. Hope Bandai pick up and make a SMP for Dynazeon.
I watched this guy in a video using oil based Mr weathering paint and thinner to apply along panel lines. Going to give it a shot on a practice HG on raw plastic
>>20411044Referring to this videohttps://youtu.be/lurRt1vvlyw
>>20411002This left me with a mixed feelings. On one hand, some aspects of transformation looked pretty cool (despite being a partsformer), dyno soldier and completed humanoid robot looked pretty cool. On the other, completed dyno form looked meh and overall quality isn't great too - tons of hollow parts, stickers stickers, ffs! Can't they make a waterslides too, like with Obsolete kits? and ugly seams. Worst of all is that you can't paint and keep combining aspect together, because it will scratch a lot of paint. Overall if this isn't a big kit and costs 4k yen at max then it's fine, but I have a feeling that it will cost twice as much.
>>20408606Finished with her I guess. Gonna work or more accurately, rework on her husband next.
>>20410478head fucking sucks since its a clear part on an abs piece. That shit will get increbily loose along with the lower neck joint, get it for the weapons alone.
>>20411205It's called paint
>>20411189Did you panel-scirbbe her pussy?
goddamn this kit looks beautiful in regular nu colors. now if only i could get my hands on one.https://youtu.be/1p45FzENj4w
the grail has arrived
This might be a long shot, but does anyone happen to have the figure rise broly kit, and wouldn't mind taking a picture next to a 1/144 kit so I can compare sizes?
>>20409927Gonna have to glue everything since its a ya know, model
>>20409115Looks great anon. I’m sure it will be one of the top builds.
>>204112981) Go to dalong2) Open broly review and the review of your kit3) Copypaste images into photoshop or similar program4) Resize one of the images until cigarette packs will have similar size5) ?????6) profit!
>>20409115>>20409136>>20409326>>20409989>>20411321Is this some sort of trolling? You can't be serious
>>20410861Ha, ya got a chuckle outta me fag
>>20411322I forgot Dalong existed, I haven't used it in a while. Thanks anon.
>>20411325No hateful comments here anon. We’re trying to keep this general supportive and peaceful.
>>20411330Oh shit I'm sorry
>>20408599Dalong and Schizophonic9 need to be added into the OP so retards like >>20411329 ask less stupid questions
>>20411334Sorry for what?
anno please... i just want regular jet alone
>>20411337Gunpla community taught us not to be ashamed of our kits. Especially since they've such good painjob and all
>>20411335gunplapocchi.com also does reviews of niche-er pbandai stuff and checks on seam marks and stuff
>>20411325Hes obviously joking, that model has clearly been stripped to the primer
>>20411347How long until Bandai's RG Evangelion line starts making this one? >>20411377>niche-er pbandai stuff>checks on seam marksJust what I fucking needed. Much thanks anon
>>20411426It might even have been stripped, but it does look like an artic operations build.
Instruction for mark fit strong says that it may damage underlying paint, especially acrylic. Does this still hold true for acrylic varnishes? Is it only good for snapshit and lacquer?
>>20411377Schizophonic9 gets the vast majority of P-Bandai kits reviewed.
>>20411002Ehh I'm not surprised. The Moderoid Godmars used a lot of partsforming when it came to the limb bots, and Gaia doesn't even fit inside Sphinx. I think when it comes to combiners this line prioritizes the final form rather than the individual components. >Hope Bandai pick up and make a SMPKeep in mind SMPs aren't always perfect changes too. Stuff like Voltron had optional parts to use either keep the lion legs on the limbs or go for a more anime-accurate look, and look at what happened with ChoRyuJin.
>>20411426what do you mean stripped to the primer?plastic doesn't have primer underneath
>>20411502Look at the picture closely. There are signs that it was once painted but scrubbed down hard to the point where only white primer remains.
>>20411481>painting models with acrylicugh why the fuck do people still do this shit
>>20411481>mark fit strong says that it may damage underlying paintYeah it will add a mildy noticable mark if you go nuts with it.>Does this still hold true for acrylic varnishesKinda not really its far less noticable, however if you matte varnish after it'll be gone.>>20411587lacquers will give you brain cancer and enamels are a bitch
>>20411639>lacquers will give you brain cancerNot if you do them outside and use a mask.
Meanwhile at a shop near me.
>>20411662Is it priced reasonably? My local HobbyTown USA had Hi-Nu's for $52
>>20411653You're gonna need a P100 full face mask rated for organic solvents and even then lacquer solvent carcinogens and neurotoxins can get absorbed through skin and any mucus membrane.
B I G G U N was totally worth it
>>20411707>risking your life for plastic TOYsplamotards?
>>20411707>this is what acrylicfags actually believe
>>20411670$60 as its the more expensive store in the area. They're having a 25% off sale tomorrow though.
>>20411708>snapshiddedWhy even bother posting
>>20411763Just to spite you, anon
>>20411766But I'm not upset or offended. I have one in my closet too but you don't see me posting pics of it
>>20411298here you go, friend
>>20411707None of this is true lol
>>20411707This is only a problem if you're 1) huffing paint or 2) painting with lacquer for extended periods of time every day (e.g. painting with lacquer for a living). The average person painting with lacquer for a hobby who takes basic, reasonable precautions will not be exposed at a level enough to cause cancer or even harmful effects. Moreover, you don't need a full face mask, although a quality mask rated for organic solvents should be used. Using goggles is more than enough to avoid eye irritation.
>>20411571nah, i don't buy itif it was sanded down carefully, the paint wouldn't look so coarseif it was sanded down not as carefully and with a coarse grit, the plastic wouldn't look so cleanit's just chipping
>want to start building for the day>cant find glasseswish i could get a bionic eye implanted.
>>20411835I'm the one who posted it and yeah it was painted. I soaked it in rubbing alcohol and attacked it with a toothbrush for a minute to get the colors off. The leftover white is indeed primer. I'm surprised some of you actually thought it was an attempt at weathering.
>>20411778>>20411298Has he been summoned?
>>20411587Because its fun? The fuck is wrong with you
>>20411867why does he wear the mask?
>>20411877Redditors who showed up in the last couple years think the idea behind 4chan is to be a dick. It can't be helped. People like this don't even build plamo, they just want to be epic trolls.
>>20411880Because his true form is too powerful.
>>20411894its called bait posting, its a time long honored tradition. The fact that you redditors are replying is proof that it works.
>>20411778Holy shit, it's a lot bigger than I thought. At least it makes the price tag on it feel a little more deserved. Thanks anon.>>20411867Funny enough, this is basically the idea that just occurred to me for the GYM GM. I guess I wouldn't win any points for originality since it's already been done.
>>20411902>bait postingTrolling, and it is a art.
>check original price for triple pack of low visibility color variations of Core, Core II and Atlus>3300 yen>meanwhile it's being sold for 70€ in EUReally? Even with tax, that's double the price.Unrelated - how long do I need to wait for cement (not thin version) to glue plaplate enough to safely even it with metal file?
>>20411867Would this have counted for the Zaku group build? I forget.
>>20411662Seems America finally got enough hi nus to be happy, it's a shame that it's the complete opposite in canada, but higher population means more shit in stock I guess, also there's no big distributor here, it's all spread out among small shops and stores, I envy you burgers that can easily find gunpla within reasonable distance.
>>20411930Everything is super expensive right now. Almost all kits outside of Japan are double the MRSP.
>>20411930>all japan based stores have so little fucking stock>local stores have more and the one that has the most variety is the one thats charging the most
I'll paint everything in hyaku shiki's colors
>>20411274I love the Hi Nu but man it looks insanely better in Nu colors
>>20412013Everything looks better in Nu colors. It's one of the best colorschemes in the franchise.
>>20411002>make a SMP for Dynazeon.Don't SMP and Moderoid actively try to avoid product overlapping? Bandai hobby too that one time with their Gosaurer.
>>20411915Funny enough, I had a plan for a goku body gm that I've been to lazy to finish (seam welding those dbz kits is a pain in the ass). I'm not exactly super original with it either as I got inspired by some japanese modelers buff zaku.
>>20411932the requirement was at least 50% of the kit being a Zaku so no
>>20411932No as its 90% not a zaku.
>>20411782It's 100% true. MSDS documents are publicly available.
>>20412096>>20411707Not to doubt your words but are there any real cases when a painter that works like every day on his kits but wears a respirator gas mask with appropriate filters and painting booth gets some serious health issues? I've read only of one russian dude who was painting right inside his house whithout wearing any protective gear, he was painting like literally inside his room, then opened a window to ventilate a room for a while and that's basically all he done. He said that eventually he developed an allergy to the thinner (and he was using hardware lacquer thinner as far as I know) so he had to scratchbuild a paint booth. I can't find the forum right now but he was fine besides that IIRC.
>>20412144From a kit? No. But working 8 hours a day in an areospace or automotive paint booth (lacquers are illegal in most use cases now due to emissions, so a literal non issue) and you definitely will have issues.
>>20412211>implying even a single person here paints for 8 hours a dayIt'd still be a miracle if it'd be 8 hours per month. Most people here seem to just masturbate over new hi-veee gundam deliveries instead of actually painting.
>>20412270>It'd still be a miracle if it'd be 8 hours per month.I'm painting around 3-4 hours a day almost each day, but with pauses. Like painting each day for 1-2 weeks, then 1-3 week pause, though back when I was painting a certaing large kit it took me almost 1.5 months of every day painting
>>20412096see >>20411803You're making a mountain out of a molehill like a coward. Do whatever you're comfortable with but don't go trying to scare other people out of doing things just because you, personally, are terrified of it.
>>20412013isn't the nu more of a dark navy instead of black though?
There's an anon (anons?) complaining about snap models in pretty much every Gunpla/Plamo General. Are there any Gunpla's that aren't snap?
>>20412144There are quite a few old-school Gunpla (japs) and and warhammer (ameriburgers) that developed some health problems later in life that definitely could be traced back to scale modeling but the question is how much of it was because of paint fumes, how much of it was epoxies or resin dust, how much it was just predispostion to certain conditions etc...tolerances for fumes also vary wildly. like nobody would accuse itsagunpla of being a snowflake but he wears basically like a full-on helmet because fumes really fuck up his eyes etc.i would say in general the only absolutes are keeping pets away from lacquer fumes and wearing a resp if you're doing resin kits. you really really don't want resin dust in your lungs.
>>20412497Mine aren't snap.
>>20412506Which ones are those?
>>20412471Is it? I know in the movie it was pretty much black but for gunpla it's either black or a really dark navy
Lindwurm, Hyaku Shiki Crash, and a few other kits up on P-Bandai in an hour. Also this exists
>>20403397>>20403427>>20403445Not that anon, but I did a quick mock-up of an EX-Ranza kitbash on NGB>Head: Doven Wolf>Body: Age-FX>Arms: S Gundam>Legs GN Archer>Backpack: Bael>Rifle: Ex-S Gundam (cuz this shit game doesn't have S Gundam's rifle)there's also the spikes on the legs which are builder parts, but you can do those with pla-plating if needed
>>20412446I'm just spitting fax mang, everything I've said is verifiable and true. I still spray lacquers in my tiny closet spraybooth and enjoy the sweet, sweet fumes.
Are the new pbandai rg’s any new molds? Or just recolors?
>>20412620Boy, those knee spikes are pretty stupid.
>Shiki crash page is up nowThough I kind of want to try my hand at getting a Psycho Zaku via Mandarake ;_;
>PG Perfectibility page is up>$358oh no...
>>20412710don't forget the $80 divine expansion and $140 lighting sold separately
>>20412620That's pretty good. Has me feeling confident about this kitbash.
>>20412710Everyone needs to stop buying Unicorns.
Is this an updated Zaku I or a Zaku II 2.0?
>>20412506post your work
What'd you get
>>20412782nothing, i'm broke :(
what y'all buy today?
>>20412782just these 2
>>20410513Anon, please stop lying. It makes your mother sad
>>20412782just an f90, its one of the only p-banda kits i can justify getting because its actually a premium made from ground up kit and not a recolor with 1 extra runner costing an extra $30
would the harder & steenbeck infinity cr plus be overkill for gunpla? Im looking to upgrade from a master airbrush g23 and spraygunner has a nice black friday sale. might finally pull the trigger on one.
any of the 00 RGs worth picking up or should I just skip it?
>>20412876Sorry I can't read. It's based on the 2.0 I believe reading through the description.
Do we know what the Lindwurm sticker sheet looks like?
>>20408606Ready to go to work.
>>20412497When people say snapbuild, they just mean a kit with little to no extra work done on it and usually straight out of the box.
>>20412710>sold out alreadylmao probably all scalpers trying to resell it on ebay
>>20412967The trolls don't care, anything that isn't a complete custom kitbash with perfect paintjob is a "snapshidder" to them.
So ibought>G-3 RG (I like the colors, just gonna panel line it and top coat it since I've never built a RG Gundam) >Exia repair II>Seven Sword>Quanta >zaku cannon (I mean it's in stock and not that much)>both AoZ kits >hyper mega bazooka launcher>LindwurmI hate myself btw
>>20411763You're a loser.
Does anyone has a HG Zeta Plus A1 and C1 side by side to post a pic? I'm trying to see what's the difference between them
>>20412964I'm really not seeing it. Good concept though. Make a pla plate necktie and collar or something. Maybe a briefcase. >>20413108He's right though.
>>20413130I think the mold is the same it's just different guns and colors
>>20413137You're both losers.
What action base do you anons use to pose several HG kits together?
>>20412047>>20411915do it anyways anons. For the Great Muscles
why is the gunpla situation in canada so badi got none of the shit i preordered and it looks like i wont be getting it for months (not picrelated obv), but I see the shti i preordered and a bunch of other kits for obscene pricesfuck this noise dude i hate scalpers so much
>>20413194>obscene prices* being resold
>>20413194This is just the state of the hobby basically everywhere.
>>20413194bandai hates canada. They don't realize there's just as much demand for gunpla in the land of the leaves, they will continue to ignore you while catering to America.
well this is officially a thing>>20413201based
>>20413212Nice, picking up the Black Rider for sure
>>20413175Action Base 5, it comes with multiple arms.
Reconguista reissues fucking when? I need my G-Arcane.
>>20409325 Gotta love how people will put on a mask driving around alone in their cars but not while working with brain killing chemicals
>>20413175>>20413285I would say Action Base 4 is better for that. The arms are longer(AB5 arms are really short when used as singles) and it comes with 3 bases(AB5 comes with 1).
>>20413317>Gotta love how people will put on a mask driving around alone in their carsI do this because I forget to take it off
>>20413317I wish I could use a covid mask to spray paint instead of those $30-bux-a-pop masks.
>>20413348I genuinely like the way my masks feel and they keep my face warm
Is the MG Nu Ver.Ka worth it? Been thinking about getting it recently but heard that it's complete aids to clean up and gated in some pretty shit places.
>>20413367That and also the fin funnels should be glued together. If you're a 1/100th scale purist you might as well get it but it's a well known fact that the RG is superior.
>>20413367It's a great kit. I never understood the gating complaint, can someone explain it to me? Surfacing is a standard step for me so I don't understand why the location of a gate matters much.
>>20413367rg is better
>>20412612Is this new or from some obscure MSV I've never heard of before?
>>20413414Yeah its a great kit but MG is better if you intend to do much more than snap.
checked my webtoons account, last read 550 days ago.......huh time flies.....
>>20413130A1 is the beam rifle loadout, C1 typically has a huge long range beam cannon with a radar disk
>>20413212well that was fast, is the game even out yet
>>20413422It's from that new Seed Eclipse manga they've been advertising on youtube
>>20413487Neato. Hope they make for the other Druggies as well
>>20412841All of em are good
>>20412471Yeah it’s supposed to be a navy
What's a good yellow Gundam marker for v-fins? Before anyone starts to shit up the I'm getting my kid brother his first kit and supplies
>>20413543I have a mighty need for this, and I'm not even a SEEDfag. Love me some swole motherfuckers.
>>20413590The original Forbidden isn't as swole. Though with the new Full Mechanics redesigns, who knows?
>>20413569>good>gundam markerpick one
>>20413569Nup, don't care if he's a kid. He should be inhaling the same fumes as the rest of us. Start him early on airbrushing, pussy.
>>20413702And leave him asthmatic by the time he's 15, BASED
>>20411002Guess I'll wait until they release Gridknight and Goldburn and see how the gattai with them going to be then.
What batteries does this use?
>>20413730That's the spirit.
>>20411002>>Have to remove the dyna soldier’ arms entirely to gattai.>>Dyna striker need to be stripe down of outer armor too.Those were shown since day-1. They weren't hiding the fact that it's a partsformer. Bot the seamlines, especially on the head really looks ugly. I didn't expect the size discrepancy between these two to be this much.
>>20413145>>20413376>>20413414RG looks like shit with its half-assed weak katoki copy paste with retarded proportions and dumb babby face. The RG funnels are superior however.
>>20412013I have to disagree, my friend. The original colors for hi-nu surpass even the nu colors.
>>20412782I MISSED HAZENTHLAY A FUCKING GAINSTOP STOP DAMN YOU ALL STOP FUCKING BUYINGFOIAUSGhoigahino DIE IN HELL FOREVER
>>20413821There are two fixes you can do for the face. Either wait for the EG and transplant its head to the RG or buy the Cannon add-on set from Effect Wings which carries a better proportioned face.
So I've heard that updated HG L-gaim MK2 is a fine kit, but what about other 3 updated HGs - L-gaim, Aug and Ataul?
>>20413897Mk 2 isn't an old kit, it's new
>>20413907You mean brand new? Didn't knew that. But anyway, are the other 3 HGs good?
>>20413931Yeh brand new. The l-gaim is a pretty good kit, I can't comment on the other 2 though
>zenmarket is making me pay 11000 yen for shipping minipla walker galliaHaha....
>>20414017https://order.mandarake.co.jp/order/detailPage/item?itemCode=1182210470&ref=list&keyword=minipla&lang=enwhy not use mandarake?
>>20414021Ill try it once I have money
>smudges>stickers>shitty phone camera>gundam markersI have no excuses. Do your worst, /gpg/.
>>20413376>it's a well known fact that the RG is superior.lmao
>>20414072Get waterslides, use lighter fluid to clean off and redo the panel lining, and and you're set. It's very easy to fix.
>>20414081I got the panel lining down, but the topcoat spray I used just messes up the panel lining. It's a done deal because the topcoat has already been applied. That is not to say I won't try though, especially finding reasonably priced waterslides for my next build.
>>20414093Good on you for learning from your mistakes. At the very least, your fuckups are only visible from a distance (outside of stickers being stickers), so you did a fine job. Looking forward to seeing your next build.
>>20414097Are these good?
>>20414072RG or MG? I had the RG and sold it cause fell out of interest in hobby, now I wish I hadn't cause it's such a nice looking kit
>>20414105It's an RG.
>>20414097If you're wondering, I'm building this next, so >>20414101
>>20414121Lucky you, was searching for that kit but an impulse buy on a discounted regular Nu Gundam makes me have to wait for the HWS Expansion set instead and hopefully show up on Amiami.
>>20413194I was looking online yesterday and saw this too. Pretty fucked. I haven't found a decently priced kit that I have wanted to build in months now.
Does anyone know if there are any good Black Friday deals for an airbrush? I’m looking to get an airbrush, and my budget isn’t much, so I was hoping that hobby lobby would have some sort of coupon, but I don’t see anything.
>>20414143check spraygunner. i haven't looked at the deals myself but their sale email had some airbrushes listed i think
>>20413212DId it say when it'll be out for pre order?
>>20413191>It even has fucking bicep flex articulationGod dammit anon I'm in
>>20414195At first, when Bandai was flailing their "muscle buildup system" for DBZ figure rises I thought it would be something like this - muscle articulation. It ended up being absolutely nothing. What a wasted potential.
>>20414205>Bandai fucking drops the ballWhat's sad is I can't even be surprised by it anymore
>>20414143Try spraygunner, I can't really vouch for the airbrushes they have on sale, but it's probably worth a look.
>>20414264And I forgot to refresh before replying...
>I'm going to wait until morning for this kit>Sold outI never learn my lesson.
>>20413737Does "this" have a name?
>>20414359kek what kit anon?
>>20414365LED light from USAGUNDAMSTORE, the actual box is in japanese
Fuck I knew I should've bought the Lindwurm before I fell asleep
>>20414483Might be LR44 batteries. That's what the official one uses.Is it this one?https://www.usagundamstore.com/products/lighting-unit-2-led-type-white?_pos=48&_sid=55b0f0607&_ss=r&variant=7346188714020Also uses LR44.
>>20414505Yeah that's the one, thank you
>>20414101I always have problems with Model Decal, even with setters. Delpi/Simp/Bandai are just much higher quality.
>>20414072Better than me, I don't panel line at all.
>>20414515Should I be worried? DL model decals are the only ones available here, and if I get Delpi, the shipping costs more than the decals.
>>20414101>>20414537I have ton of dl decals (like 50+ sheets I think), all of them are very good. Only once I got bad sheet with a purple color shifted to the side a bit.Also, bandai's decals are very thick in comparison
>>20414572Okay, thanks. That's reassuring.
>>20414233I'm sorry, but you're factually incorrect.
>>20414072You need to trim your stickers. Also its practically peeling before you even top coated it.
Post your blackfriday haul
when will they add the Dragonar 1 to the US P-Bandai store?...
>>20413367It's a great kit and one of my favorite RGsHowever, the Funnels should either be glued togethr or up on display, because they will fall off at times if you're not carefulAlso the kit is just a bit back heavy and the knees are a little weak in supporting that back weight, so you have to kind of pose it in a way so it doesn't fall backwards or use the standBut it's a great kit overall. you will spend a lot of time on the legs though
>>20414733It's not much I'm sure, but I'm happy with it. Got the last unicorn on the shelf. Met some cool guys in the store and some total weirdos. Overrall good experience.
>>20414856I need to sell my full armor unicorn.
>>20414766its up for pre order on Gundam Planet right now
>>20414733>tfw no discounts at HobbyFrontlineMeh, no models sale for me. In before - I got too accustomed to virtual warehouse and shipping from Japan is currently not very good idea.
>>20411707People like you are such fags, I literally spray my lacquers with no mask while I smoke a cigarette, I only put a mask on if I’m doing a lot of parts in a row.Also don’t even reply to me no matter what you have to say about your health I couldn’t care less doesn’t change the grand scale of your faggotry.
>>20415006that nigga probably wears a full STALKER cosplay to go to the store because the media told him to be scared of covid
I do shots of lacquer thinner with breakfast every morning
I literally cum lacquer into my gf and she's fine.
So you guys are telling me your perfume isn't lacquer based? You all smell like shit, lacquer based perfumes are the only way to have the characteristic scent of a professional.
I got the lacquer vaccine and now my balls are huge and I don't need a mask to paint.
I got an RG Hi Nu at Hobbytown for about 44$not bad, thanks for subscribing to my blog
>>20415109You mean 1/100 MG Ball?
>>20415248I'd rather subscribe to your onlyfans
>>20415109can you use your dick as an airbrush now? assuming your balls are huge cause it's full of lacquer paint
>>20415253I store the paint in my massive foreskin, then I thin it with my piss.
>>20415253nah but you can blow it through a straw https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cVBvlrjVUtw
The RG G-3 is up for pre-order, does it has the same issues as the original RG?
>>20415296>Here's that 1/100 Gundam Astaroth you wanted bro
>>20415317He actually enjoyed the infiltration episode.
>>20415288its literally the exact same kit, so yes.
>>20415399How bad is the kit actually if you know?
>>20415296how satisfying to see the squad complete
>>20411274>>20412013Painting mine in Titans
>>20415248Was it on sale? RIP my local one doesn't exist anymore.
>>20415703yeah, their price was 55 bones and this from friday to sunday they are doing 25% off all plamo, gundam included. I would have bought more but I already have like 7 kits.
>>20415458it's really not that bad if you're not treating it like an action figure. there are some armor bits and stuff that you'll probably want to glue.
>>20415900the blue will give you precision, but the red will give you strength.
>>20415900>Top one>Blade too big>Rolls off the table and stabs you in the foot>Bottom one>Small blade perfect for dealing with nubs>Doesn't roll>Even has a pointerBottom Chads always win.
>>20415904I usually just do whatever I'm gonna do to them and put it up on the shelf so I'll probably be good, r-right?
>>20415930yeah you'll be good friend.
>>20415900>red one is universally better>but blue is my favorite colortough choice, /gpg/
>>20415900Pink one can stimulate my prostate when I'm not using it for modeling.
>>20416023>caring about all of that nerd shit>not just picking based on your favorite colorngmi
thanks for getting me into the hobby boys, im trying my first rg with the eva kithow often do your nippers break? im considering god hands but it's as expensive as another kit
>>20416106>how often do your nippers break?never if you use them properly.
>>20416106You can make your nippers last by buying a cheap set of sprue cutters and using those to make the first cut away from the piece.
>>20416144im cutting the gate as close to the runner as possible, then doing another cut near the piece, but i only have a pair of mr hobby snippers, ill go get some cutters from home depot tomorrow for the sprues then

>>20415900Top if you're a red blooded, stong American (diabetic and obese)Bottom if you're a queer and effeminate European (skinny due to being emaciated by AIDs)
>>20415900top if you like buying heavily marked up dollar store garbage that stresses the first kit it's used on and needs to be tossed before you're done for one to two more.bottom if you enjoy a purpose built knife for your craft, not designed for scrapbooking and other things that require a vertical blade, and if you like a nice long life of blade with quality non-stressing sharpness
finally getting around to posting my work...jk i saw this on twitter and thought it was sick
>>20416414amazing, I really like how he made the transformation hide the gundam aspect well.
>>20415900The superior curved blade that cuts smoother and prevents gouging
I've got a question here.Can someone do a comparison of the HG/RG RX-78, the Mechanic Collection Getter Robo, and the HG Infinity Mazinger-Z?I'm just really curious how they look together.
>>20416407Those feet look mondo retarded
Is it even possible for SMP Genesic Gaogaigar to stand straight with that feet design?
>>20415489which Exia is that?
>>20416683The normal MG, with the feet painted blue for some unknown reason.
>>20413852>Either wait for the EG and transplant its head to the RGThanks for the suggestion anon. Moght actually do this.
gonna have to make this with the EG Nu
>>20408606I would’ve preferred the normal version to fully paint. I guess I’ll paint the inner details and leave the armor clear red. Maybe polish it.
>>20416817He looks like you carved him out of a jolly rancherI want to lick it
>>20413852>Cannon add-on set from Effect WingsIsn't it just a hat instead of a new faceplate? Or were you talking about something else?
>>20414733Were there any sales anywhere? I saw Newtype basically take off $3 and immediately thought “this year will suck for sales”
Anyone use Vallejo Mecha paints? What's up with the Pure Black paint? It seems to have a rubbery finish to it? Also, if I aim to paint a piece black, but it's already primed with a black primer, is there any point in painting over it again?
>>20416822It's the Hyper Mega Bazooka from EffectsWings, which is the bazooka design of the Metal Robot Spirits.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pnLcnZlhAdI&ab_channel=HobbyClubhouse
>>20416479I didn't know that Mecha Gaikotsu posts here.
>>20416944? Dudes decent looking
>>20416771Kai chads keep winning
i thought Mecha Gaikotsu was some femboy what with the voice and painted nails but they're actually fucking jacked lol
