==AERIAL COMBAT GROUPBUILD==Build a robot with flight capabilities designed for atmospheric combat. This can include>A mech designed for fighting in mid-air (ie: Gouf Flight Type)>A mech with external flight equipment attached (ie: Aile Strike)>A mech with a transformable flight mode (ie: Any Variable Fighter)>A Fantasy mech with its own set of wings (ie: Rune Gods Rayearth/Selece/Windam)>A support vehicle meant to aid another mech in flight (ie: Core Booster)The ability of flight is key here, if it's something that can stay in mid-air briefly but can't sustain being in the air for an extended period of time it doesn't count. Also, mechs that can operate in both the earth's atmosphere and space are fine, but mechs that only operate in outer space are not eligible.Submit your entries to email@example.com , include at least 5 finished pics and any WIP pics you took while working on your entry, as well as a brief description of your build.START: 7/15/22END: 10/31/22

Thank god bandai killed the MG line now they can focus on real TRUE gunpla like HG and RG.
Threadly reminder that he is at it again.
horse pussy brosbandai broskotobukiyachads are laughing at us
>>21154054Remind me how many gundam RGs have we gotten this year?
>>21154062'certain people' had objections to giving her a plamo ass, please understand
>>21154062Oh don't worry, we'll be paying kotobukiya a visit shortly.
>>21154063>gundamwho cares they'll only make more rx-78s and wings when they do gundam anyway, just discontinue gunpla and give us the non-gundam stuff at this point
>>211540633. God Gundam, GGG and Goldymarg.>>21154062What am I seeing here?
>>21154070>GGG and GoldymargWoah cool gundams!
>>21154062Is this a model kit or s.h figuarts?
>>21154074kit, figure rise standard
>>21154071I fucked up. My bad.
>>21154075I wonder if s.h figuarts has the same problem
>>21154063>>21154071Wait did RG Wing released in 2021? Oh wow I thought it was like this spring
>>21154080Try June of last year.
>>21154036Oh neat. Who is it by?
>>21154082The MG Exia frame has a sagging issue?
>>21154087just the ankles.
>>21154089i'm not even american
>>21154087the ankles were kinda not good, though supposedly that was fixed in later reissues but there doesn't seem to be conclusive evidence one way or another. The improved knee bend is pretty nice tho, especially for a suit like this.
>>21154100>The improved knee bend is pretty nice tho, especially for a suit like this.Fair point. I will get to it once I get to build the MG Exia.
>>21154082The same guys who made the other GN metal frames.
>>21154106didn't even know that was a thing, thanks for sharing anon, definitely gonna pick up at least the dynames one to use in the repair 3 resin kit.
>>21153991RG XN Raiser or RG Master Gundam
bros I think my drive/motivation was stolen by a witch as I cannot continue working on my custom build
>>21154132What were your building, lad?
>>21154139Star Build Strike
>>21154161Star Build Strike is vastly inferior to normal Build Strike anyways. Although that white cannon has to be repainted, it looks really bad with the grey handle in my opinion.
>>21154162The Universe Booster is cool tho.>>21154161Will this meme ever die? Or it will be the gift that keeps on giving.
God Imagine RG Fighbird or RG Baan Gaan
>>21154179every time someone posts some super robot name i dont recognize i look it up and its the exact same fucking design
>pro russia gundam
>>21154180And Gundams arent?
>>21153991My wishful thinking is a retail Exia Repair IV, but I know it's most likely going to be P-Bandai.
>>21154139something way too time consuming as it's big as fuck, nothing to base it on, It's like slapping paint on a canvas until it looks good is how I'd describe it
>>21154201sure, but most of gundam is one big timeline so it makes sense that new ones look like they came from the old ones and the au ones look like the original with some sort of noticeably different style to sell toys, afaik most of the shit from the original super robot boom is just biting on each other
>>21154206Definitely P-Bandai given the trend with the other Exia Repairs. Speaking of 00, why the fuck the Qan[T] have such thick thighs and calves? It is ridiculous.
>>21154218Setsuna has acquired taste.
>still no PG Zee Zulu What are they doing?
>>21154221Or communication with the ELS through dummy thickness. Regardless, I having fun building the RG. The sword bit clear parts had me sweating for a bit but it wasn't that hard. Now, some undergated parts were a pain in the ass to clean up, and I have to fix up some mistakes I made on the cleanup with putty. Also, the GN drive feels a bit loose.
>>21154045Hopefully the shading shows up right, if at all. Handpaint, decals and weathering next week. I have also learned that paint thinner is great for cleaning up paint.
>>21154238>he doesn't know gunpla casts its own shadows
>>21154228>zulubecause it's just a man in power armour and not a full on mech
>>21154241that's not shaded in the slightestand that's not how light physics work. A metal 16-20m tall object's details cast much different shadows compared to a 16-20cm plastic toy
Dumb fucking niggers at usps just sitting on my God gundam. Was supposed to be here today but the niggers in philly are probably kicking it around like a soccer ball
>>21154255>uses logic and factsEnough of this shit, honey. *injects him with hrt*No shading allowed.
>>21154261>hrt>not paint thinnerLow effort shitposting.
>>21154188My big capital Z Zeta shirt is in the same timeout corner as my Punisher skull shirt right now
>>21154085Gg Sazabi. Maybe next match
I have an uncle working at Bandai, we will get>Weissritter>1/100 Mazinger Z>MGSD Barbatos + Freedom>MG Zeta ver. Ka
>>21154320>MGSD Barbatos and Freedom>not RX-78-2 and ZakuLearn to Bandai unclepost, nigger.
I just want my zero gravity judge to get here already. Looks better than any of the bandai high resolution kits
>>21154036>there are people who still complain about itMy GNX and Exia have been in various standing poses over the years and still no problems. Maybe the whiners should put up or shut up.
>>21154336I know it's not ideal to have weak ankle joints but why not just keep it on a display stand? I don't even think the GN-X ever actually touches the ground other than seeing them in the hangers. Same for something like Delta Plus, just keep it on a stand.
>>21154339Some people are extreme poorfags and can't afford the 7 dollars for a base. I have all of my kits on stands (70+)
>>21154344Not every kit belongs on a base.
>>21154352Yes I suppose if you want them all in the same lame pose
>>21154218I mean only the HG Exia Repair II escaped being P-Bandai exclusive, but there's definitely no doubt that a hypothetical RG/MG Repair IV would be P-Bandai
>>21154358Technically for the Exia Repair IV, you only need to sword bit of the Qan[T] and the armor for the arm.
>>21154352Even for ground based kits a base will let them be in more dynamic poses.
>>21154354>>21154365The Mk II comes with its own hangar stand. Alternatively the Sazabi shouldn't be on a base. The Z'GOK looks great in a kung fu pose sans base.
>>21154374Hangar poses are lame. Sazabi is a space suit and can absolutely be used in space dynamic poses. Z'gok is a water suit and can similarly also be used in dynamic poses.
>>21154378>Hangar poses are lameNo u
>>21154400Hangar dioramas are different than just slapping your Mk. II in a neutral stance on a butt ugly platform and calling it a day.
>>21154406Looks fine to me. Now all we need is Char's Zaku with the lift.
>>21154414It's boring and lame.
>>21154415Sounds like you wouldn't make it as a giant robot pilot anon.
>>21154417Sounds like you have terminally shit taste.
>>21154422You sound like your soul is terminally weighed down by gravity.
>>21154430>said from someone who keeps his gunpla on two feet
>>21154436SOME of them.
>>21154449Including the ones piloted by the guy who first coined that phrase.
>>21154459I accept your concession.
>>21154469Oh look, two feet planted on the ground :)
>>21154188>American Gundam>pilot willingly fights to make his country proud>French Gundam>pilot willingly fights to bring honor to his home country>Russian Gundam>pilot is a literal prisoner conscripted by the government against his willG Gundam truly was kino
>>21154484Wow, standing there with the head looking slightly to the side, what an iconic frame and would look great on my display case!
>>21154493Okay if you're that desperate for canon.
>>21154493>>21154519I have to say the sexual tension between you two is suffocating
>>21154519Anon you're getting off kilter. I'm not saying that RX-78-2 and other mobile suits have never had their feet on the ground, I'm saying that action bases provide additional cooler poses even if it's a MS that spends time on the ground. I will reiterate, just having your mobile suit stand there, fugly kit included base or not, looks boring. This also does not mean that a pose on ground can never look good, but they're called ACTION bases because they can help convey more dynamic poses in mid air or that have fucked balancing otherwise.
>>21154493>dom in green clown colorslmao
>>21154490>Chinese Gundam>Pilot fights to restore the honor and glory of the shaolin>Australian Gundam>Pilot is a literal kangaroo>Mexican Gundam>Pilot fights to discreetly and illegally emigrate to earth.Jesus, they really were on the ball with that writing.
>>21154508Be sure to post it whenever you're done
>>21154584was the Thailand pilot a chick who was actually a dude?
>>21154584I unironically want a kit of Tequila GundamIt would t even be racist. Actual Mexicans I've met thought it was hilarious.
>>21154626actual mexicans love mexican stereotypes, this is a well known fact if you arent an urbanite retard
>>21154626Mexicans love that shit. Even the most straight-laced and restrained Mexican will flip their shit for a giant mustached robot in a sombrero wearing a serape. In many ways, it's the most grounded suit in G-Gundam. The country would 100% get behind that.
>>21154600Closest thing to canon there would be this fan contest submission. Neo Thai apparently fielded Hanuman gundam. Sidenote, Neo Chicago is looking strong with Bulls Gundam.
Why did Tequila Gundam have a trident though? Is that a Mexican thing?
>>21154651For some reason Tequila Gundam is primarily an aquatic suit.
>>21154652Tequila is a liquid and not a solid.
>>21154493That’s pretty badass, what is it from?
>>21154659I think it's from some video game
>>21154659boku no gundam
>>21154653You know what? Works for me. Nailed it, anon.
>>21154638what is neo hong kong? If I'm reading that right
>>21154128They would have released XN Raiser on P-bandai years ago if it was coming
>>21154043>>21154045Finally was able to come up with something for the groupbuild. I was mainly curious to see how the Final Faction greebles would look on a kit once sanded and painted. Planing on sanding and applying primer tonight. The only thing I'm missing is ink to print some custom water-slides with.
>>21154755...and the back side. Tried making some custom brackets for the gyro-things to attach to.
randomly saw this English documentary on plamo in my FB feed, yought you guys would want to check it outhttps://www3.nhk.or.jp/nhkworld/en/ondemand/video/4026181/?cid=wohk-fb-org_vod_4026181_dps-202209-001&fbclid=IwAR0YXgV0QjjlhXYewfPGIcZ-_qM9K6rdqNw4sNP-9eoHc-0nH-_I4WbWFGo
I made the mistake of buying the Daban version of Freedom 2.0 and their plastic-moulded knockoff Strike Freedom metal build 5 years. Quit building kits with those collecting dust until now. This was such a pain to build though since nothing fit properly and the moulding left a lot of flash to sand/cut off on most pieces. Really not looking forward to my suffering building the Strike Freedom. Never buy Chinese, and thanks for reading my blog.
>>21154845from what I heard their molding has improved a lot with more recent releases, but that's just hearsay so if anyone build any new-ish daban, feel free to correct me
>>21154851The straight up bootlegs are fine usually because Bandai did all the work. The ones based on the metal builds are still hit or miss because they came up with experimental ways of replacing the metal parts with regular plastic stuff.
I'm hoping the new RG is TV Wing Zero or the Barbatos.
>>21153796Because you can fill in the hollow parts if you buy the exact same kit twice! Bandai is a genius!
>>21154930I wonder if some of those holes are 5mm, you could use a Lego black technic pin to hold it together as well if it's that big.
Two questions: 1. Is the MG Barbatos expansion set any good?2. Where can I find some non-Hasegawa Macross stuff that won't be overpriced?
>>21155018>non-Hasegawa>won't be overpricedpick one.
Kinda really dumb I got into gundam because of Evolution and are there kits of the Marasai UC and how hard/easy would it be for a beginner? I really like how cool it looks and how fun it is to use
Thanks for the bonus, Gundam Planet anon! I was kicking myself a little for not ordering more since paying $10 on shipping $15 of stuff stings but you little bonus took the edge off.
>>21155096i'm going to caution you right now, gunpla can be a big money sink if you let it be. That said the HGUC marasai is just a high grade so that shouldn't be too difficult. You can look at the manual here to see if it looks too complex for you.http://www.dalong.net/reviews/hg/h52/h52_i.htm#mTry to get some OK nippers and a hobby knife, maybe a sanding sponge set as well too. If you're buying from usagundam get their nippers for free shipping, if you're buying from gundam planet just get the GP nippers. If you're opting for cheap $10 nippers don't get the bandai entry nippers, get the God Hand PN-125 for $11. If you order from gundam planet and mention it here with your order number you may get a blessing from gundam planet anon if you're lucky.
>>21154845How are those Supernova kits? Their Heavyarms and Sandrock look pretty sick
Eventually I'll buy from GP.
>>21155151unicorn marasai isn't pbandai, it's a normal retail release
can you get away with hand painting a lacquer over an acrylic primer?
>>21155227it should provided you allow for enable proper cure time for the acrylics (24 hours min)but why the hell would you want to handbrush laquer in the first place? especially when you've got an acrylic base for your primer.
>>21155236because i still want my models to have a degree of posability post painting
>>21155239You can do this will enamels or acylics you know. You're still going to get chipping on the edges no matter what you do.
>>21154712I have no idea... Closest I can make of it is Kuroko, Kuniko, or Ku12ko. That second rune is nonsense to me.
>>21155269It has to be either Kuroko or Ku12ko. That's the only thing I can think of.
>>21154816>Older lady buying a German panther for herself to build at home.I wish my FLHS was full and lively...
>>21155130Not that anon but ive built the Heavy Arms, it has a few issues. Big one is parts not fitting sometimes, have to take the hobby blade to it and re-shape them a bit. Also, I have 2 guns on the arms and 2 on the back, they have quite a bit of heft to them and one of the back holding arms snapped because they are designed kindy janky. It does look pretty cool. Overall a ok kit, I did get it a few years ago at not B/S price though so I dont think I could justify the price its goin for now
>my shitty build made the OPWhat. The blue sazabi is more OP material.>>21155130Nta but they're pretty great. Only fault I can find with mine is the loose elbow joints. Quite fixable with some paint/superglue thickening.Also comes in the original TV version red and if I'm not wrong, later versions comes with the Igel equipment as well that are also sold separately.
>>21155289Now that's a proper Heavyarms. Do they have the others on from the EW and TV version? I hate that Bandai made the EW version of the others P-Bandai.Also, almost done snapping the Qan[T]. Setsuna indeed has great taste.
>>21155130Supernova is better than Daban for the most part. I have their Heavyarms, Sandrock, Altron, Mugen Liger, and Sturm Tyrant. Sandrock is the worst and requires the most alteration. Nothing you can't fix with a little sanding though.>>21155291They have all five main gundams.
My extra long snoot zaku came today. Didnt even know it had shipped out yet
>africa twin is my favorite bike>want to paint a gundam like it>try to plot out the colorsis this really the best I can do with the paint i have? any suggestions? I was going to make the eyes yellow as well
>>21155401i'd suggest adding a few red stripes on the blue and white pieces, as well as a bit more variety on the blue. they're nice shades, it would be a waste to use the darker only for feet and side skirt things.
>>21155401what this guy said >>21155410.look at the bike. is it a bike with blue, red and white parts? or is it a white bike with blue and red stripes?
>>21155389snip that snoot
>>21155426seconding this. Circumcize the Zaku, anon. Do it now.
>>21155401>all the whiteCan't wait for that crusty finish.
If you're not sure what colour to choose, just paint them in Titans colour pallete. It'll just works.
>>21155454this is the official chud color scheme
>>21155454black and red or grey and violet
>>21155460don't forget to spray black on random edges for that extra subtle nuance
>>21155454would have worked if the yellow wasn't in the worst places possible. And what the fuck is white doing within 20 meters of a titans colors suit?
>>21155454Too bad your kit is painted in some totally random colors, not Titans
>>21155428>>21155426We do not circumcise the snoots in these threads. Snoots are a holy thing and we want them to retain all their sensibilities and maximum pleasure.
>>21155454this is not titans colours
>>21155592Yes they are?
>>21155593that's like saying these are all french flagsplacement is what makes titans colours you fucked up bigly
>>21155593>"titans colors">orange (not a marasai)>light blue >blue metallic>silver>gold>no red>no blackyeah, this ain't it
>This many secondaries
>>21155593>>21155454nigga you the LA rams robot
>it's not laid out exactly like my mk. II so it's not titans colors
>>21155607yes>>21155603>non canon clownwho cares
>>21155609>non canonit's literally in tomino's zeta gundam. pay more attention, you secondary clown
>local hobby shop has rg god, sazabi, all unicorns, nu, etc>has 20+ different mgsIs the shortage over or something? Wish I didn't order just rg god the other week, it's $45 in store.
>>21155613thats a hazel, and its in tominos fan fic movies so its not canon anywaycope harder
>>21155616>thats a hazelnobody said it wasn't and also nobody asked
>>21155603>"it's totally TTT guys!">no TTT emblem or rabbit crests>not even remotely the same colours as that pic >metallic blue, silver and gold (never used by titans)>orange>orange on torso (never used by titans)>no red>no TTT coloured fingertips >not even a normal titans logostrip it and try again
why the thread is so slow lately?
>>21155599That falls flat because no other faction uses those kinds of colors like that. Why are you all getting so autistic over this? That lfrith looks like titans colors because only titans looks like that. Who gives a shit if it's metallic? Who cares if the yellow is slightly darker or is used in "wrong" areas? It still looks like it belongs to Titans.
>>21155603completely different usage of colors than >>21155454. Not to mention AoZ plays fast and loose with colors too.
>>21155622A very poor choice of paint layout.
>>21155623That's the thing though - it doesn't. It looks either like a failed attempt at giving it Titans colors or a completely unrelated paintjob.
>>21155626It does though.
>>21155618>strip it and try againRetard tryhard lmao it's not even his it's some Japanese guy's pic that was trendjng on Twitter earlier. Go DM him instead of posting your tiny little opinion here
>>21155622wheres your vapor wave psycho zaku
>>21155628I mean, you're free to think so, but it really doesn't to me nor seemingly to most people here.
>>21155629>some Japanese guy's pic that was trendjng on TwitterNow I want to see anon argue with 1000 people and get ratio'd to suicide
>>21155631Clownjob autist is not a person.
>>21155633>ClownjobSounds like a good time if you ask me
>>21155631>nor seemingly to most people here.There's like, 3 people who don't think so and 2 that do counting myself.
>>21155623>It looks like [thing it doesn't look like] because I say so!At least get the basic colors first before saying that.Gundam Geminass is closer to titans colors than this. You are coping pretty hard here.
>>21155622heading straight for the top of /r/gunpla
>>21155637>it doesn't look like [thing it looks like] because I say so!
>>21155640Multiple people already provided reasons and examples of why it does not, try again.You got the fundamental colors wrong, even when trying to compare to TTT designs, using colors titans never did, and missing critical colors, emblems and color arrangements specific to the color scheme you are claiming it was supposed to be.
>>21155638>heading straight for the top of /r/gunpla>straight
>>21155621it isn't, we still average a thread every 3-4 days
>>21155648The colors look close enough, and those "multiple people" are just looking at literally anything to bitch at. Who cares if the yellow is darker or used in "noncanon" places, not everything needs to adhere to a carbon copy layout of one specific titans suit. Barzam has yellow in different places than Mk. II, is it not using titans colors anymore?
>>21155658wrong shades of blue
>>21155660It's still dark blue and looks like titans.
these are not titan colors
>>21155640>missing the two tone blue (separated by yellow line) used every time the titans test team used the yellow foot colour scheme>it's totally the same!!!!!!>>21155654>wojaks come outthanks for conceding defeat>>21155658so Gundam Geminass 02, F91 Harrison, Blue Frame Astrays, Resin Schneider's Doga and ghiren's greed Gustav Karls are all Titans MS? got it.
>>21155666I found out today Hambrabi is in fact not Titans because it uses different shades of blue and no yellow.
>>21155454Just because it doesn't look like TTT/MK II colors, doesn't necessarily mean it can't be considered titans colors. Most Titans suits didn't even use the "titans colors". A more consistent color for the titans was the color of the uniforms, which for Titans Mobile Suits really only showed up in the Psycho Gundam.
>the best version of 1/144 Zeta is locked behind P-Bandai
>>21155666>ghiren's greed Gustav Karls its teel, not navy or dark blue>Blue Frame Astraystoo much white>02too yellow no hint of orange>dogaits just blue
>>21155684you mean the UC 0088, right?
>>21155684stop being poor
>>21155684I like the sleeker, more anime accurate regular release. But the more parts separation and such on the U.C. 0088 was scummy.
>>21155684just wait until the rg 2.0
saturday evening, perfect time to make 12 fin funnels
hg re-gz custom when
>>21155727You are gonna buy the master grade and you are gonna like it
>>21155729b-but all my cca suits are in 1/144! If I now buy the regz custom in 1/100 I won't be satisfied until I have the entire lineup to match it-hold on, that's the point isn't it? motherfuckers got me. again.
>>21155730Now you have to buy every kit otherwise your collection will be incomplete
>>21155730Why do you need a Re-GZ for a CCA lineup? If you're going for a full CCA MSV as well, shouldn't you be complaining about the lack of stuff like a HG Geara Doga Kai?
>>21155736I'd like it instead of the normal Re-GZ because I think it looks much better. I would just swap out the ak-47 for something else, maybe zeta's rifle.
Ready for succ
>>21155736If they make a Geara Doga Kai they might as well make a Psycho Doga too at that point since it would only be missing the shoulder funnels
I was thinking for a while about buying a nunch of Tomitec buildings to make a city battle diorama ala 8th ms team, but now HLJ has a bunch of them as discontinued.https://www.hlj.com/search/?q=*&productFilter=series%3ADIOCOLLE%20.COMBAT%3B%3Bscale%3A1%2F144Any idea what's the deal with that?

is there a way to tell what some stylized calligraphy of kanji mean? I bought some fancy pancy water slide decals years ago where you peel off the film and only leave the print on and it's all a bunch of kanji I can barely make out, I bought them cause it seemed cool at the time. I don't wanna just slap a bunch of them on and make my kit look like extra retarded like those people who get "chicken fried rice" in Chinese tattooed on their bodies
>>21155750Are you gonna bore those vulcans?

I don't wanna just slap a bunch of them on and make my kit look like extra retarded like those people who get "chicken fried rice" in Chinese tattooed on their bodiesMost of these are "blade", "heaven", "true", "lighting", "sword", "warrior", and some more. You can't get get fried rice with those.
>>21155780I'm just worried a combination of words could mean something silly, I guess I'll just use the "blade" and "true" kanji cause I recognize it
>>21155789An online Japanese dictionary should have compounded words using those kanji as a base, try some combinations before commiting to the decals.
>>21155778I never thought about it but now I might it sounds like a good idea
>>21155750oh damn, that v fin looked weird as hell without the white middle.
>>21155802Remember to make a center point with the hobby knife before.
is there any kit with a pink version of the "energized" style beam saber effect part? like the one on picrel, from rg sinanju's runners. ideally also in 1/144. I don't think there are any, but i've been wrong before, plus maybe some third party made them. Worst comes to worst I guess casting it as clear resin and painting could work but i'd prefer to avoid tha
>>21155817A-anon. Y-you okay? Don't tell me the resin dust got to you...
>>21155727just get the mg if you can, it's a great kit. mostly excellent part separation except for a few very odd but easy to paint spots, lots of neat joints and gimmicks, and it comes with hyper beam sabers and 1/60 size effect parts to match them so it's automatically based
>>21155819I AM PERFECTLY SANE
>>21155824We shifted to the other dimension. The dimension where the resin is the material for mainstream kits.
>>21155817no, go recast it in clear resin or just paint over it with neon pink and give up the transparency
>>21155817Maybe you can try the Ninpulse beam set and paint it in clear red/pink? Though I have no idea the availability of it nowadays.
Man, this GN Sword is fuckin' rad.
>>21155817>ideally also in 1/144Too bad...PBandai MG Slash Zaku have it, but it's MG.Although the kits are in different grades, I think they use the same mold/size...
>>21155691>its teel -teal- is blue green. there is no green.>too much whitemany of the hazels are white. I guess they aren't titans colours.>too yellow no hint of orangetitans don't use orange on their blue colour schemes. the TTT two tone blue uses a pure yellow. >its just bluewith yellow pipes? same amount of yellow as GM Quel or RX-178 (classic titans scheme)
>>21155662Bro what faction is this I'm confused? I thought it was titans but the blues are a different shade and everyone knows Titans don't use green pipes...
Titans colors don't exist.

HG Axis (final battle ver.) With psycoframe newtype magic effect parts when?
He doesn't use the stickers. Ngmi.
>>21155906if you resin cast beam saber parts I'd highly recommend casting the handle and blade as one part as most resins are a bit too brittle for a strong beam-handle connection >>21155911why use stickers when you can use fluorescent paint?
>>21155913I use the stickers to mask my florescent paint. Then black.
>>21154758lookin good anon!
Why the FUCK is Ex Standard still a thing when SDCS is the perfect SD system.
>>21155933why not just paint the eyes in fluorescent paint, then paint it all black in enamel, then after it has dried, get a cotton swab with some lighter fluid and wipe the black off the eyes, revealing the paint underneath?
>>21155958Because Bandai is Bandai.
>>21155964Bro i just use the stickers even on my painted kits. They're generally not even noticeable anyways
>>21155729>peepoo bandaiI'd eat plastic before buying from this scam
>>21155964For me its florescent, mask(stickers), black, done.
>>21155964For me it's markers for eyes, markers for panel lines, markers for details. Two snips with god hands for nubs.
>>21155750Wtf someone among us has the kit?
>>21156450I should have mine mOnday.
Huh... Crafta was assembling the MG Nu Gundam with the Activated Psychoframe.

Is it worth it to get a vise?
>>21156807I don't know what this has to do with gunpla but you should have a vise by default.

What's a cool and cheap model to practice painting on? Something with a bit more detail than the RX-78-2
>>21156857HG Hy-Gogg and Astaroth (the big sword one)

>>21154045I'm learning how to handpaint on this GM.
>>21156908well, keep at it.
>>21156857If he wasn't p-bandai I'd use my mg GM II but he is so that shit's staying unbuilt until I build confidence.
>>21156908Your paint is way too thick and it looks like you're trying to do everything in one coat instead of building it up slowly. You are never going to learn if you keep doing it that way
>>21156857I practiced painting on SDs myself. They tend to be cheaper, have lots of spots for detail if you want to go hard on it, etc.
>>21156908thin your paints
>>21156807>>21156834get ball vise
>>21156908I read the filename as "toothbrush" and assumed you were painting with a toothbrush which would make sense.Also learn what priming is first. Even my first attempt wasn't this bad.
>>21156908Need to be thinner and alternate your brushstrokes. One coat of paint go from top to bottom. Next coat go from left to right. It hides brush strokes.
>>21157049Don't do this, it melts the plastic. You have to blow it on using a bubble blower. You can get them cheap at target in the kids section.
Almost done with the akatsuki. Just need to paint the gun and do minor panel lining. Cool kit overall. Wish it'd get a mg, articulations are pretty limited

This looks better than the other backpack
>>21157350it really doesn't imo. the backpack itself and the guns don't really match eclipse's design language and the green head cover thing is goofy as fuck. However if this is an equivalent of sorts of the launcher pack, and maneuver to aile striker pack, I got high hopes for whatever the melee focused one will be.
>>21156857SDCS kits if you don't want to into scribing, they have nice little detailsEG if you also want to practice scribingHG GMs from 0080 & 0083 are usually cheaper than EGsHGIBO has a lot of kits that are piss cheap

How do you thicken the early RG joints? The hips on my RG Strike are already so loose after snapping it can't even do the aile strike pose.

>>21157533Manlets, when will they learn? Also, how tall are the 1/62 kits?
>>21157628There's no 1/62 macross kits, but 1/72 battroids usually are about the sameish height as typical 1/100 mobile suit (so 17-20cm).

does anyone here build resin kits? I'm looking for advice on how to get rid of the slimy mold release that they always leave all over their models.

My daughter's cat mistook my decal bin for the litter box. She took a massive piss. I've lost 75% of what I had. I managed to save my thunderbolt fa mg and blitz mg sheets though. I can not be held responsible for what I do if that pos rodent walks out in front of me.
>>21158411Wha..how did you know
>>21158452Goddamn that really fucking sucks, I guess the smell of cat piss is forever engrained on your salvaged decals?
>>21158452Pic is what's left. I had no time to take pics of the damage because i had to amputate rather crudely before the urine spread.
>>21158452RIPif you do anything to the cat you deserve to get a stroke tho
>>21158458It's slight but it had a chemical reaction and smells like a sharpie and ammonia a little.
>>21158468I'm going to piss on it after I drink a bang. Eye for an eye.
>>21158452Guess you've learned to actually put things away and seal them then. Having a cat is a big responsibility anon.
>>21158452Anon I'm sorry but that's funny.
>>21158452well you better hurry up and apply them while they still wet!
>>21158482Ha ha they are dry now.
>>21158452they arent waterslides any more, now they are pissslides
I pray you guys never have to see all your zeon and vr ka decals swimming in pure cat urine.
>>21158512i won't, i put my things away properly
>>21158512I don't allow my cats into my plamo area because I worry about them eating a tiny nub of plastic nor do I want cat hair on my things.
>>21158512>all your zeonnot gonna be a problem for me
>>21158522you caught me, it's me, the proper-sayer anon
>>21158512I keep my shit organized and in drawers or bins with lids on because I'm not a retard and specifically don't want my cat getting into them.
>>21158520I left the door open for ac purposes one damn time! It's a dedicated gunpla room. Now it's hot in the living room.
>>21158528Do you have the lids on them while you use them? I was doing decals, walked out, heard scratching, ran back, witnessed hell, vowed revenge while culling my prized decal collection. It was on my damn desk being used.
>having pets>while building + painting models
>>21158531you should know by now that cats make a beeline for recently opened doors>>21158543yes. i open the box, take out the decals i want to use, then close the box and put it back away until i put the decals away
>>21158544it's fine if you aren't retarded
Will Gunpla ever be available or affordable again? I'm not paying $20 for a HG that used to be $10.
>>21158578Prices never go back down in anything.
>>21158578maaaaaybe once the second factory is up and running and then a few years before recession stops. either the price goes down or 20 bucks will be worth a lot less then. In all likelihood tho I wouldn't count on it
>>21158583Well, maybe I'm wrong, but at the prices local scalpers expect me to pay I'm just not going to buy more gunpla. Affordability of the hobby was one of the core components to me and if it's no longer affordable I'll no longer buy it.I mean maybe other people are eating shit and paying $30 for a selection five (5) entire HG kits that are available but I might just be done with Gunpla as a whole unfortunately.
>>21158578When bandai finishes building their next manufacturing plant there will be more gunpla produced making them more abundant. Everything will be fine on that front.What you want to be looking for is the cost of shipping to decrease. That's still the killer for non-Japanese, as even though the Yen is weakening against the USD the cost of freight has gone up.
>>21158578it's already available and if you're too poor to buy from what is still the cheapest model kit brand modelling might not be the hobby for you
>>21158578Move to Japan.

>>21159137not all, I have a bunch of kits that came with stands and it's just the stand, I'd only a handful of them let you store things on their stands. The core gundam kits do, only the hands though
>hlj just charged me for a rg hi-nu I preordered a month and a half agoShit, that came sooner than I thought. Now how long for a MG Sniper II and Sword Impulse? Although thinking about it I fucked up the box contents, since the RG Hi-nu is long and flat while the Sniper and Impulses are tall and short, it doesn't lay out optimally since you're charged by box size and combining the two means you'll have a box that is not only tall but long.
