***READ THE GUIDE***

For those new to gunpla/plamo or even just new to this thread; please read the guide. Please read it before asking questions, as there is a chance it has already been answered there.

For those unfamiliar, "plamo" is a shortened form of "plastic model". If it's made of plastic, someone can probably help you here!
If you're new, you're gonna fuck up. Don't worry! If you're experienced, don't make the new people worry!

And remember to report any shitposting and spam to keep the thread clean and civil.

>Why won't anyone answer my question?
Try being specific, especially about your materials and process. Post images whenever possible; even if the kit/part looks bad, you are more likely to get help posting images.

>Why are my pictures sideways?
4chan strips EXIF data from images when they're uploaded to the site from your phone, including the orientation display tag. To fix this, save your images separately, or use an app that will rotate and save the images for you.
One commonly used app that works well on Android:

==ARMORED GROUPBUILD==

It's time to armor up, everyone! Build a robot or vehicle that is physically built to be as defensive as possible. Some examples include:
>A robot with a heavy emphasis on shields, in quantity or size (Thunderbolt GM, GM Guard Type, etc)
>A robot with additional layer(s) of armor attached for added defense (Full Armor Gundams, NT-1 with Chobham Armor, Armored Valkyries, etc)
>A robot/vehicle with naturally thick armor in the first place (Gustav Karl, Mazingers, Ironclad Dreadnoughts, etc.)
>A robot/vehicle with various traditional armor types attached to it (Slat armor, Reactive armor, Improvised armor, etc)
You can have your standard array of armaments too, but the defensive aspect of the build is what's most important here.

are there any SD freaks here? What are the "good" ones? SD seem like kits that require paint but there's almost no info about them unlike normal kits.
>>
>>20845378
I dont have pics but I am currently dusting, taking apart, and sanding the nubs and trying to cover up the gouges I made on an old Gundam Hazel kit I built probably close to 6 years ago now when I got into gunpla
>>
>>20845296
are those the hands that come in the kit? or are those third-party hands?
>>
>>20845405
Never experienced a particularly bad SD kit. I guess the closest to a bad one would be Star Winning Gundam due to its transformation gimmick into a gimped out "real type", but that's not really bad as much as it's "not as solid". SD kits are more graded on how many color correcting stickers there needs to be as the more there are, the more paint you need.

you're going to have to travel to a different universe for that because Bandai is reserving the RG line for: MC Gundams, Their rivals (Tallgeese, Zeong, Sinanju, etc..) and popular/iconic mecha like Evangelion, Gaogaigar, etc..

is my only option to just dispose of the cleaner in the pot? I ended up disposing of the used cleaner and getting a different one with a lid.

I would love to see a RG Ex-S. The HGUC Ex-S was released around 20 years ago, so a 1/144 RG Ex-S would be very welcome.
>>
What are some bootleg kits that are like the Giguelf from Pastel Memories?
>>
>>20846743
>>20846765
Yeah, except there's dozens of suits that will come out before kampfer even has a chance. Assuming 3 gundam RGs a year it'll be like a decade when you got popular or near certain rgs like
ZZ
The O
Qubeley
Hyaku shiki
Wing zero proto
Epyon
Barbatos x3
AGE 1-3 and FX
Legilis
Both victorys
Both Xs
Turn a and x
Gp02
Gp03
Full armor thunderbolt
Build burning
Shining gundam
Master gundam
Gouf custom
G self
Maybe even build divers shit
There's a bunch of other suits I left out. At the point where kampfer becomes a possibility they'll be thinking about making rgs of all the non main protagonist gundams like deathscythe which would sell way more than kampfer
>>
>>20846802
Old SRW kits may as well be bootlegs.
>>
>>20846765
>Raise your hopes a bit
I'm not really an RG guy, only for suits I cannot get elsewise. I am only asking as it seems the unofficial rule is Gundams and Char.
>>
>>20846810
>The O
I'd say you'd be crazy, but we got a fucking RG Zeong for some ungodly reason so who knows.
>>
>>20845530

How did you get that already? Isn't it not releasing for a couple more months?
>>
>>20846825
The RG Zeong is awesome
>>
>>20846825
Zeong is a char suit and final boss suit. So maybe the O won't happen if zeong just got in because char. But being zetas boss makes it have a good chance unlike other series final boss suit like reborns gundam from 00

i'm sure we just get kits that are either promotional material or bandai staffer favorites with no in between. not sure about battlelogue though. was that just promo for the game/anime or some twisted desire to reprint kits without reprinting them? do we really need wing, wing zero and blue wing in stores at the same time?

I know this question has been asked million times already but how long do you usually leave your parts for the primer to dry/cure before going to paint the first coat? And for the first coat into masking? I left this one overnight for the primers to fully cure, and then the base coat, left it for another 2 hours, and went for masking. But the paint and surfacer got peeled of when I took of the tape, so I need to lightly sand this one and start over :(
>>
>>20846802
Anything made last century might as well qualify these days.
>>
>>20846912
it depends on the primer type/solvent
I use lacquer based solvents exclusively now and wait no more than 20 minutes before moving on to base colors.
>>
My local shop got restocks of Build Fighters optional sets, mainly Powered GM arms, Gallbady arms and the like. Do you think it's good idea to grab some in advance? They have lots of joints for customs and these are problematic to make out of plaplate.
>>
>>20846919
I use lacquers too, don't know what I did wrong. Maybe the paint is still wet so it peeled right off?

gouf custom has about as much chance for an rg as the kampfer considering it's pretty much the antagonist suit for the alex
>>
>>20846977
Gouf custom is way more popular than kampfer. Popular in the west too

>>20846985
we all know that doesn't mean a whole lot as far as what they decide to turn into kits

Random question.
Are there other gundam models besides Bandai?

I've been eyeing Jagd Doga (Gus) kits recently and when searching the MG online, it seems people favor the Daban version. I dunno if I'll ever go outside Bandai and give money to leech companies but it's interesting how they mogged the MG
>>
>>20847911
the Daban version has an inner frame whereas the Bandai version is a hollow Re100. Being a customer, if you offer something wholly superior I'll buy your shit and Daban seems to have done just that.
>>
>>20847911
The Jagd Doga is a RE100 not an MG; Daban's is actually just a more involved kit from the outset. There are some good non-Bandai offerings out there. Some are straight copies of MGs/official Bandai kits, but some are unique creations and thus have different proportions etc. Usually it's more greebles.
>>
>>20847914
Fuck I forgot the Re1/100 inner frame shit. And the listings around me are the Daban for ¥2900, HG for ¥3200, and the piece of shit Re1/100 for ¥7100. Bandaichama...

Hello, first gunpla I painted this week I'm still learning and just using acrylics right now with an airbrush (don't have a proper booth for laquers yet). Was wondering if this looks decently okay? It's a semi custom color scheme, all I really did was set the greys to a shade darker than what they originally were with some metallic paint mixtures. Still just starting out with painting and trying to learn as I go :)

I was looking at photos from latest expo and after looking at horse girl model, I start to wonder - how can Bandai keep swinging between good plastic girl models and absolute garbage?

For example, first Fumina was mix between odd and scary, Sarah was okay, May was really nice, second Fumina better than first but still with odd face, 30MS have excellent engineering and cute faces (slightly worse than Koto but still nice, also made by Chinese too) and now back to this. Really, it's like having separate teams to design models without communicating and sharing experience between each other. Why?
>>
>>20848907
They've probably gone for maximum pose-ability for the horse girl so it looks terrible from everywhere but the front

>>20848889

I hate it. I would suck a dick just for more GM kits but this is isn't even just bad, it's lazy.

The new heads look like they belong in 30MM and not UC era GMs, and the main unit's face plate looks like it was just glued onto the head without any attempt at making it look like it actually fits.

The new guns look alright, but the shields look like build fighter expansion weapons rather than UC era stuff too.
>>
>>20848914
No idea, honestly. Too expensive in my taste to try out.

>>20848909
But 30MS already have good mobility and engineering. Why not using their own experience? Kotobukiya have no such problem and actively reuse engineering solutions and body parts designs in their models if they prove successful (fresh FA Girls updated their models with Innocentia body, Megami Device share same structure). Why Bandai can't?
>>
>>20848592
It does go in the slot, but not hold securely, unfortunately.
>>
>>20848914
NTA but it's extremely plain for the dumb as fuck anime license tax. The waist is surprisingly nice to build and is more complex than the 30MS ones, but the torso is retarded and the wrists to hands connection is equally as retarded. Worse yet, little to possible articulation in the neck thanks to the hair getting in the way AND the head build is completely fucking unique compared to literally every other FRS and 30MS kit. Meaning it isn't compatible with other kits unless you're willing to modify it. It's fucking baffling why they made the choices they did with this. It's no wonder it's an abandoned kit in Japan.

How much harder is it to build compared to the RG? I'm new to this hobby and have never built a MG before, not to mention I hear Katoki kits have design quirks that need an experienced builder to "fix".
>>
>>20849233
nothing. some people shit themselves over it using the same hi joints as freedom but these same people don't know how to hold nor move a model kit
>>
>>20849233
It's associated with Seed but let's be honest if it was a Build Fighters custom this general would love it
>>
>>20849255
MGs are easier than RGs because the parts are bigger. Honestly nothing bandai makes is hard to build.
>>
>>20849255
MG is literally lego level construction, other than cutting parts out of the runners the pieces are big so building one is fast and easy. don't get one though, it's beginner trap to start building MG kits because you'll never be a better modeller. stick to RG and avoid MG like a plague.
>>
>>20849233
Nothing to do with the gunpla itself but because Bandai kept its existence secret until the very end. The order form for distributors only listed "??? MS" for Eclipse hence they only ordered several of them. This resulted in a very low stock for Eclipse, worse than RG Hi-Nu, and the price marked up to almost triple times more expensive. Until this day I never see Eclipse with msrp price, the cheapest is 1.5x more expensive.
>>
>>20849276
RG require even less work and "modelling skill" to make look good
What the fuck are you on about
>>
>>20849255
its bloated in way more parts and the inner frame is a little more complicated so it'll be a much much longer paint project than the RG.

RG are smaller and the parts are smaller thus requires precision and skills to build one. a normalfag would never build a RG kit because of how small and intrinsic it is but they will build a MG kit because it's noob mode. everything is premade on a MG kit so normalfags have nothing to worry about but RG kits requires a TRUE modeller to construct one without fail
>>

Making it a normal release doesn't make sense, since both it and aile calamity, that is piss-bandai kit, are from a side story.They should've either made both normal releases or piss-bandai.

Aile Calamity is the regular Calamity with new weapons and a different backpack and shoulders. That's usually the criteria for a P-Bandai release. Eclipse Gundam reuses the Freedom 2.0 Gundam but other than that is completely new, and is also the face of the side story it appears in. Like most side story hero Gundams they get a regular release.

He's an autist that literally goes on a crusade against MG's DAILY. He hates them and wants them to be discontinued because he believes that people that enjoy them are "lesser" and don't "deserve" to build gunpla. He's an insufferable faggot and I look forward to his eventual suicide.

It's like their japanese minds can't comprehend that there are gunpla fans outside of japan or how many of them there are. One of the many mysteries behind bandai's retardation. It's just so tiring.

/tg/ helped me with that so here you go: https://1d4chan.org/wiki/Casting and go to gallery, there is guide with using BS and Lego blocks for making box. If you have further questions, I will try to answer.

Also, author of this guide don't mention it but you can apply thin layer of petroleum jelly aka vaseline on BS to help it separate from each other later (as heat from placing one mould part on another during making process can glue them together - parts themselves separate nicely but it seems to stick pretty hard to polystyrene or PP from what I experienced). And wear gloves when working with Green Stuff or Milliput.

Any anon here that built the GM 2.0? Would you happen to have an idea why my chest piece has such large gaps between the parts? I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong here. I can’t tell if I’m retarded or just not used to master grade kits since I’ve only built a few HGs.
>>
>>20849971
Haven't built one, but doesn't that gap allow to open the cockpit hatch?
>>
>>20849976
That’s what I thought it at first but I looked at pictures of the kit and I’m seeing that my cockpit gap is noticeably larger and the upper and lower halves have a gap that pictures of the kit don’t have.

The parts aren’t coming apart easily either and I’m afraid of forcing it and breaking it.
>>
>>20849971
>>20849979
Is that an undergated nub in the middle of the right side? Check and see and if it is clean it up and try again. Sometimes if you forget the undergated nubs it can make parts not fit.
>>
>>20849979
Maybe it's one of those hatches that need to be pulled out before they can open? Does that hatch have inner frame on the inside that attached to the kit? Are the parts pushed together as they should be?

Thanks anons, I appreciate you guys. There actually was an inner gate nub that caused in problem, and the other problem really was just me not pushing hard enough for certain inner frame pieces.

I’m still getting used to all this, and I haven’t experienced any other kits before where I really, really had to push things into place really hard. I was too afraid of breaking it. It is cool seeing the inner frame get put together though, and I’m enjoying the new level of complexity compared to HG kits.

GM Striker has probably the worst articulation in this list and it's way better than people remember. Just because something isn't fucking HG 00 doesn't mean it's "bad".

I use shrink tube, i think it looks better than the shit Bandai puts in kits, but it does limit articulation quite a bit
shitty pic related, the shrink tubing on the elbow and hip joints of my wip Unit 5

I had no issues with my 01 DX or 02, still need to build my 00 DX, but since the builds are so similar I'm giving it time until I feel like it

I know you said shitty pic related, but you're gonna clean this up better right? I see this several times on the kit.
>>
>>20851170
Ya, I actually didn't snap the kit, bought it prebuilt for like 20 form a guy in Japan that sells prebuilt kits, was originally going to use it to build a Pail Rider, but then I won a bid on a set of mg units 4-5 so I just decided to use it as is. It's 100% a fixer upper

>>20851203
I could tell from the image that you bought this pre-built from japan.
every single prebuilt kit or parts I've bought has had that brownish grime stuck in the nub areas with nubs looking exactly like that.

>>20851216
this unironically, never seems to fail. I can't Imagin what they're doing besides shoving it up there assess to get them his dirty

ive stored assembled kit when I was a kid long ago, pretty sure when you leave a gouge mark like the one posted, its very porous and concave so it just picks up a lot of dirt

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaa why did it happen now I still ahve like 8 kits i gotta get through and a SD paintjob. which would you rec for a first MG? or should I sit and wait for more GMs since I wanted to do that one first?
>>
>>20851586
>first MG
MG Rick Dom 1.5 as it is simple but very impressive and is essentially the newest one of the bunch
>>
>>20851586
itll probably be a minute before we see the gouf again so i say that, idk how good it actually is though
>>
>>20851053
much like spending last night with your mom, I gotta say
>>
do we have any sort of rough estimate how long it takes bandai for a kit to go from the decision to design it to being released?

(should have said if you're not aware we haven't heard fucking anything about anything after zgok since this picture was taken)
>>
>>20851661
>>20851663
oh, good example. totally forgot about this. which may be what bandai wanted. though I can't realistically imagine this long for a RG is the usual, these probably got hit with delays for various reasons.
>>
>>20851661
9 fucking years bandai

>>20851575
Love me some Ducatis.
>>
>>20851673
my point was more just that we don’t have any real idea of timeline starting from announcement because we don’t even know if they were delayed or whatever, it was just radio static
>>
Give me my fucking Gaia remaster

i've had one of the tomy-tech little armory P90s in my stash for ever, im about go get one of the RG evangelion kits, would the P90 at 1/12 fit with the 1/144 RG EVA? Or would the proportions be completely out?

Has anyone done this before? Any photos?
>>
>>20851914
Smartphones really changed society. Before 2010 asking someone for a picture was a big fucking favor that involved getting the right light, a microSD, a USB cable and a computer. Now you can just casually ask for photos like a piece of loose change. Fuck you

And what's the problem now? In ye olde times it was but not anymore. You should be happy instead of salty. Or next time you ill complain about people posting because in ye olde times you had dial-up internet connection and every minute would cost fortune.

for the Mk II?
No. It just includes some mediocre metallic decals that have poor adhesion.

However the Hyaku Shiki HD color is definitely worth the extra cash if you prefer the more anime accurate look of the 1.0 over the nu-Delta Gundam look of the 2.0.

lmao
>>
>>20851040
yeah, unfortunately don't really have a good alternative for that.
>>
>>20852477
What about the Gouf? They already have the Zaku frame all they need are spiky shoulders and diamond shaped thighs and whatever
>>
>>20852706
I don't think they're entirely satisfied with the current Zaku frame. Same goes for the GM and ground gundam. the fact they are derivatives of older frames is what makes them unlikely
