***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.

Can anyone help me with candy coating?
I started with gloss black primer, which went on smooth.
Next was Alclad 2 Chrome. Which, aside from some small spots, has a mirror-like finish and there's no orange peel or bigger imperfections.
For the clear, I chose Mr Color Clear Violet (GX 108), which I thinned it with mr color leveling thinner around 1:3 (paint:thinner) and sprayed at 15psi through 0.35mm nozzle.
It doesn't look terrible, but all the mirror-like quality is gone and overall it doesn't look gloss, more like satin.
Not sure what I did wrong. I tried to do it in many light layers - maybe I should use heavier, wet coat?
Maybe there were too many clear coats, which killed the reflectiveness?
>>
>>21297097
It could be dry particles hitting the surface. Maybe try 1:2 with 20 psi?
>>
>>21297097
so i haven't used those paints in particular but i did have a similar problem when putting alcohol-based acrylic clears over alcohol-based chrome, so i'm thinking the lacquer thinner in the mr color might have reactivated the alclad and killed the chrome. alclad do recommend water-based acrylic varnish and enamel clear colours to go over their lacquers though (and their own brand clear colours are enamels), likely because enamel thinner doesn't react wiwth lacquers.
you could try clear coating it with a water-based acrylic varnish first (like alclad aqua clear) before putting the clear colour on it, but you'd have to make sure to wait until it had fully cured and be careful to build up light coats because lacquer thinner can eat into water-based acrylics too.
again though, i haven't used these particular paints, and i have seen people put lacquer clear over lacquer chrome so i'm not sure

Thanks for the comprehensive post.
What you say sounds reasonable, but on the other hand I found a video from barbatos rex and he doesn't seem to do anything special, which makes me confused about all that lacquer-lacquer thinner interaction. Pic related - one of the spoons has alclad chrome + gx clear combo on it - it has a really nice finish and he doesn't seem to do anything special.
>>
>>21297097
Ideally you want to use Alclad II gloss black base on top of your primer, also when in the process did you notice you lost the mirror effect ?

You killed the chrome when you put something that wasn't aqua gloss over it. Bright silver base goes over the gloss black. Then clear gloss base for depth then an alclad candy. Then topcoats.

First time i tried shooting for a pbandai kit (seafag here) which was the rg destiny impulse and i didnt get one which made me frustrated even though i just wanted to try since i was planning on getting force impulse for my first rg.
Do they restock this or is it ogre?
>>
>>21297234
I used gloss black base as a primer. Some people say it's not supposed to be used as a primer, but on the other hand - some people do. I personally didn't have any issues with it, but I also left it to dry and cure for 2-3 days for a good measure
Just like in the photo - chrome itself was reflective and glossy, but it lost most of the shine and reflectiveness after the mr hobby clear violet.

>>21297449
Wasn't the psychoframe only used in the cockpits of the Nu Gundam and Sazabi in CCA? Ever since Unicorn, the Nu Gundam has been redesigned to have excess psycho frame to make it more like the Unicorn, such as the Metal Structure and the MG Ver.KA. Personally, I would like the PG(U) to be more anime accurate than the metal structure, like how the RG was more anime accurate than the MG Ver.Ka. Doing so will help differentiate the PG(U) from the Metal Structure.
>>
>>21297475
yes, that was a katoki thing. i can only assume katoki did the design for the metal structure as well

psychoframe doesn't look any different than normal metal. unicorn and nu ver ka retconned this

Still need to put the stickers on fed boy and then panel lining/top coat, but in case anyone wanted to give that HG kit a shot, the piece that is used to hold the heat axe in the hip armor has a thin peg on it and doesn't fit snug in place so it will fall off at the slightest touch. It comes with two drum mags for the machine gun, but they don't have a bottom half so it looks like crap if seen from beneath. Not much to say other than that, it's a zaku with an m4/m203.

Well, a PG boomergundam Ver.2.0 was too predictable for the 40th anniversary of Gumpla. We couldn't have predicted it being a PGU, we didn't expect it to have as much inner frame detail as it did, and we didn't expect the oversized Advance MS Joint.
Considering how 2023 will be the 35th anniversary of Char's Counterattack, and how the Nu Gundam is Japan's favorite Gundam, a PG Nu Gundam is too predictable. The question is, how will Bandai make a PG NU Gundam.

I know the initial 1987 1/144 Nu Gundam didn't have fin funnels, just like the Entry Grade Nu Gundam. The Metal Structure had it's fin funnels sold separately as P-Bandai exclusives. The vintage 1/144 Nu Gundam was later released with fin funnels, in July 1988. The Entry Grade Nu Gundam is compatible with the HGUC Nu Gundam's fin funnels. Hopefully the fin funnels in the PG(U) Nu Gundam are fairly durable.

>>21297524
Do not listen to him there are plenty of modelers using mr color clear on top of alclad chrome resulting in candy finish, you definitely did something wrong
>>
>>21297550
well, exceptions apply for kits that just straight up don't have them. But at least as far as I know the mg, the rg and the hg all have somewhat flimsy funnels, at least relative to the rest of the kit. Hell, even the converge Nu suffers from that iirc.
Which makes sense, really, it's literally a last minute addition the design didn't account for before. Structural instability is immersive.

Although arguably, warehouse workers care even less because at least retail workers will do the bare minimum to avoid dealing with asshole customers.
Also keep in mind that Hobby Lobby does not use barcodes for anything, workers need to manually type in a SKU and being a number off results in things getting logged incorrectly.

Jesus fucking christ, those are the types that complain about going out of business because they only accept money orders. So no barcodes and the owner probably has full say on whats allowed on the shelves. Reminder paypal is owned by evangelicalists and you literally can't pay for certain things with their service.
>>
>>21297815
It was the $10 gacha item right? I bought five of those, order got canceled the next day. Dodged a hell of a bullet if you ask me. Imagine not only getting five of the same kit, but a kit you have no interest in whatsoever! I hope your refund goes through anon. Worst case scenario you have some kits you can experiment with.

I have. I use an airbrush to paint.

RG God Gundam was my most recent personal project. Painted the frame and hands silver, the yellow parts gold, added some black accents and panel lining, a put a matte coat on him.

>>21297827
Interesting. You didn't paint the gray and white parts?

>>21297826
Yea.
Hoping it get's processed

>>21297828
No. I'm just getting in to painting my kits and wanted to experiment with just top coating the bare plastic. It turned out nicely I think. Gives it I nice texture.

Dude, hobby lobby only carries like 8 kits. You weren't going to get anything good. Also all mystery box/bags are a scam. Its just crap and overstock they're trying to clear out of their inventory.
>>
>>21297809
They do 40% off model kits once a month. Its part of the rotating sales they started to replace their weekly coupon.
>>
>>21297838
The RG God Gundam stickers are well known to be ass. I've flattened trimmed and hidden them as much as I can but you can only do so much.

I'll swap them out for water slides if they ever some out.
>>
>>21297850
there are already rg god waterslides available from dalin, evo/simp, and delpi
>>
>>21297850
That shoulder sticker on the left really needed some trimming at the bottom. Or at least should've been placed a bit higher. But with the rest yeah, you can only do so much
>>
>>21297713
>Hobby Lobby does not use barcodes for anything
yeah I noticed that. They manually punch in prices here and don't even do any sort of codes. My scumbag side briefly considered the possibility of slapping one of their 16.99 stickers from the HG Leos and RX-78s onto one of their expensive kits.
But that's a lot of work and risk to save $10 so I wouldn't do it. But SOME aspiring poorfag here could.

Maybe it's different where you are, but the employees over here always seem to running around like chickens with their heads cut off. Some real nice ones like the cashier that told me to save the receipt and not open the kits and if the next 40% off kit sale came within a week or two to bring them up for store credit. I'm definitely going to ask why the don't have fucking barcodes next time though, just to see the response.

Never bothered to check, and most 11 stores punish the fuck out of you for cancelling with full on foreverial bans, and I never cancel anything because I'm not an indecisive retard.

That mostly applies to everyone here except managers. Although, on the Hobby Lobby I work, things run a bit more smoothly albeit slower for the crew not so much for the customers. I swear to god that some of these women are psychos and can kill you just for saying that we haven't rolled out the particular ornament they want. About the barcodes, we do have them but we use the SKU for organization of the shelves and the online catalog. For the actual cashier what we do is classify everything on the departments and just punch in the department and the price of the item, then apply any discounts that available for said department/item. Also, if you get store credit, just get any of the other kits. For the record, the 40% off sale on boxed model kits always happen every other week.
>>
>>21297910
>Also, if you get store credit, just get any of the other kits.
That's the plan. Not sure which kits they'll have rolled out by then, but hopefully they'll be something I'd want.
>>
>>21297914
Right now, we are rolling out HG Zaku F2, HG Gundam Mk-II (A.E.U.G.), HG Char's Zaku II The Origin, HG Char's Zaku II Revive, HG Gundam RX-78-2 Revive, Battlelogue Breaker shit, HG Gouf Custom, HG Barbatos Lupus, HG Bael, HG Leo, RG Exia, RG Wing Zero Custom (EW), and that's it form the top of my head. We were rolling out the MG Gundam RX-78-2 V1.5, but the stock on the shelves run out real quick. We may have some on the warehouse so wait for a bit. ALSO, one of the things that you can get is an Iwata Eclipse, and if you do, get the $149.99 one. The other set of the Eclipse is not as good.
>>
I think I'd be okay with the Battlouge shit if Hobby Lobby actually stocked more variety of them.
They filled up on Helios and that's it.
>>
>>21297932
Last time I went they had both gouf custom and gouf custom (red).
If anon didn't say they had RG Exias I would have stopped going to them, they're lucky they still had one in stock.
>>
>>21297932
>>21297940
Individual stores have different inventories. Mine likes the Mk. II AEUG and has a bunch, along with Char's Origin Zaku and Barbatos Lupus Rex.
>>
>>21297955
Yes, and no. Each store have some small variations of one of two kits (i.e. some stores have the RG Crossbone and others have the RG Wing Zero), but the bulk of it is the same. Also, abuse the sale on the EG to have a test bed for painting and scribing.

Is is necessary to apply gloss coat after painting before using the panel liner?

>Why is there no RG Epyon yet
Fixed that for you.
>>
>>21298399
Dont be lazy and customize it yourself
>>
>>21298394
The reason you gloss coat is because if you were painting with matte, or even semigloss, paint it's going to soak that panel liner in deeper and be more annoying to clean up and it's not going to flow well either. Worst case scenario if you get panel liner on a matte paint job it's literally not going to come off no matter how much thinner or lighter fluid you rub in .Gloss coating is just to help with panel lines and decals going down smooth and making them easy to clean up/work with.

No, the TR-6 head, chest, arms, cock, and balls are all incompatible.

If anything it's Mr Acrylic type of paints that need primer the most so yeah. You could use Mr Acrylic on top of Mr Lacquer though, it's the reverse that's bad. Whoever has it saved please post the Mr Acrylic, Mr Enamel, and Mr Lacquer chart-of-layering

For water based acrylics like acrysion, absolutely.
Solvent acrylics like Aqueous and Tamiya are more durable so you don't "need" primer but you should always have some on hand at least as a basecoat

Is Delpi decal good? I want to get water slides for RG God.
>>
>>21298763
Mr Hobby Aqueous can be thinned with laquer thinner which makes it basically as durable as a lacquer
>>
>>21298886
delphi is pretty good, their slides are 'thicker' than those of dl model but they look just as if not better.
only thing with delphi is that it takes a good 20 sec for the slides to come loose while dl takes just a dip
>>
>>21298886
>>21298890 me
another thing is that delpi doesnt do replacements for the foil stickers while dl model does give waterslides for the foils.

Holy fuck do i have a serious skill issue with removing nubs
I have a nail polishing kit and it sands them down and smooths them fine but a lot of them seem to end up still white or like divots in the surface if i cut them near flush. If i cut them a bit off and leave a nub i sand down the nub and its like you can still see a nub its just smooth.
Do i need the $80 meme nippers or what?

>>21299035
you don't need 80 dollar meme nippers but you do need to upgrade from your dollar store wirecutters. leaving divots mean your nippers are crushing and stressing the plastic rather than cutting it. if you don't want to get godhands just get one of the chinese single bladed nippers like dspiae 3.0 or mastertools 09990

>>21299049
yes sorry i actually meant those rather than gx metallic, the gx metallics are things like metallic red/green/etc and the super metallics are actual metal colours. just avoid the "mr metal color" line because they require buffing after spraying.
if you were looking for a "steel" colour specifically, i don't think mr color do one that dark in their good lines, but if you can get alclads they do some nice darker metallic shades

Im using hobbystore sidecutters instead of nippers I'll go pick up a pair of hobbystore singleblade nippers then.
With nippers do you cut them flush with the plastic or do you cut them a teensy bit away? Because i can do that with the sidecutters i just dont like the result of sanding down the nubs

You're cutting to close with your nippers. Or sanding too hard (which is kind of unavoidable if you're grinding them down). Ive had the best results by snipping off the runners far away, then snipping down closer and closer with my godhands then finally finishing with a hobby knife + sandpaper if needed. This will prevent those nasty white stress marks, except when the actual injection site is fucked up and that can't be helped. I've noticed they're more often messed up on MGs for some reason

people who paint, do you usually get all the paint you need to completely match the color guide, or do you just use colors that are close enough? Also, do you buy specific paints when you need them, or get an assortment of general colors?
>>
>>21299150
>Top coat will hide them better yea?
depends, really. it's not 100% reliable, but usually it's fine. sometimes it really does need paint though, especially on dark plastic. depending on the piece you might be able to just dab a tiny amount of paint on it and clean the excess, leaving only a little covering the nub.
>>
>>21299152
Buy rby, white, and black and use trycolor.com or eye it with color theory if you're a painter outside Gunpla. My other paints would be enamels for washes, metallics, clear colors, topcoats, primers, etc. but really you just need the primary colors
>>
>>21299160
i'd just add that if you're doing that get a lot of each of these. Also getting some grey of your choice as well can be handy, since you're likely to use it on any build commonly enough you'll save a lot of time instead of mixing white and black every time

MK II 2.0 is still considered one of the best MGs today.
>>
>>21299228
just you, Baund Doc HG is one of all-time best HGs, MK-II kits are incredibly constently high quality regardless of grade, and many others are similar. It's just a few outliers (Zeta itself, which seems notoriously difficult to represent in model form, or The O MG, which had very odd cost cutting) that may make it seem so. There's also the fact that there's probably three times as many MSG kits as there are Zeta

I finished my first build and it went along fine albeit slowly. I have a question though, I sanded down the nubs using 600 then 1000 then 2000 grit. How do I buff out the sanded area so there's no noticeable discoloration from the non sanded parts.

you need to thin almost every paint. even a lot of pre-thinned paint could do with a little bit extra thinning
>>
>>21299228
Dunno what you mean by quality. Articulation, build, overall sculpt, details, etc. but imo
>All of the Zeta kits are lacking one way or the other (cursed ms)
>Hyaku Shiki Revive has an unrefined sculpt, similar to the Crossbone kits, my mind might change when I get rid of the curry yellow
>Hyaku Shiki 2.0 is good
>Qubeley Revive is actually nice but the general design makes it look like a dated sculpt. The MG looks even older
>Gabthley is ok and Asshimar looks really good and transforms decent
>HG The O aged well. The MG isn't worth its price, the stickers to hide seam lines are kinda sad too, I'll wait for a Daban reprint
>Baund Doc is sex
>Psycho Gundam is nice, people shit on it for having no articulation but what the fuck do you want from a giant HG
>Mk-II 2.0 looks dated to be but it's a good build. The RG fixes that with its color separating and all
>No comment on the Byarlant and Dijeh I haven't bought the kits or watched reviews
>The Methuss is ugly and old but I actually like it a lot cause it seems like a good canvas
There's no coherent message here I just wanted to go through all the suits cause I like Zeta Gundam. I agree that 0079 has better "quality" but that's just cause 0079 has like 5 suits and Zeta is a multiverse. No one's really motivating the designers to modernize the oldshit obscure designs like Gabthley, Asshimar, Gaplant, etc. Basically what I'm saying is that the Baund Doc is the weird giant fuck Zeta equivalent of the Zeong and I'd like to see a Real Grade of it

That's just an odd thing to bootleg. Too bad it doesn't seem to be available readily for less than 80 dollars - same price as the Bandai. I can't even find a comparison between the two.
>>
>>21299319
Something about the heads and sometimes chests of the Crossbone kits seem like the opposite of "sharp" that Gundam heads are usually supposed to be. That's what I felt when I put the HG Hyaku Shiki's head together. I think it's just a personal phenomenon I felt with those two kits really, and picrel has no scar decals or panel lining either so that doesn't help. I'll paint my Shiki by next week so I'll see if I still feel the same way by then

it's really not. it absolutely got mogged by the 2.0 OYW kits that followed in 2007 and is a little dated today (skirt vents don't actually have holes, limited detail on the inner frame beyond the leg and torso).

had this happen with the fins for the rg sazabi funnels. I dropped it, spend very long searching, finally gave up, counted fin parts again, turns out it fell exactly into the only set missing a part

anyone here autisitic enough to identify what resin kit/custom daban's red zeta is based off of?
or is it legitimately their "own" design sans the whole being based off of the 2.0 inner frame

Had a friend recommend I stick my runners in the oven on a low heat for a while to soften the plastic and minimize nubs. What's the verdict on this? And what's a good temp/time?

It's their own design and looks much worse than the Bandai MG. I regret not getting one when it was on the P-Bandai store. Fuck my frugality

the pbandai looks more accurate to the cgi short, but at the same time it feels a bit too much like the 2.0 zeta
the twink legs with the shorter skirt really ruins the look of it for me desu. Also much prefer the edgier head and shoulders

daban's zeta and grey are straight up ripped from a resin kit for the 2.0 lmao. The surface detailing is simply too much for the zeta
>>
>>21299617
it's acceptable if you get it for cheap
lots of big parts that you sandwich together

can you just do that locally with a low heat hairdryer and just warm them up before you start nipping?
could you do the same by just heating up your nippers so they're hot instead of steel cold?

There's the 'landmark' way where you mark one point in the middle of two edges and another point in like the half of a half of two edges. Some shit like that. Mark it with a marker. Personally I'd recommend Dspiae's scribing tape where it actually has lines like a ruler for reference

Got an Entry Grade for my birthday and decided to use it to try topcoating for the first time
Letting it sit now to make sure it's all dry before I put the stickers on but it already looks so much better, can't believe how easy that was
>>
>>21299995
This would be great
>>
>>21300388
it'd look better if you painted it

I'm sure it would, but baby steps. Also I don't currently have an airbrushing kit.

MG Spiegel is old so I imagine it's shit, but to what degree?
>>
>>21300425
it’s actually pretty good for its time imo, long as you organize the screws its a decent kit

>>21300388
are you going to topcoat over the stickers?
pretty sure the topcoat helps hide the sticker sheen and edges

>>21300461
It absolutely does not hide sticker edges and also if the sticker has a clear part on it it'll frost over

I'm just going to say it again.
I don't know how anons(people in general) put model kits together without having picrelated ready on stand by. It literal insures your kit.
>>
>>21300543
99.9% of anons here ONLY build bandai snap fit kits, theres not much reason to use tamiya extra thin on them unless you are seam welding
>>
>>21300543
I have some Mr Cement deluxe but I'm not sure how it stacks up against the tamiya. I think it's the exact same shit.
>>
>>21300543
i have it and never used it and i'm working up the courage to try removing the seam lines on the kit im building with it
>>
>>21300541
if they're the same price you're either getting a steal on the mg or you're getting fleeced with the rg

What scale diorama stuff works well with 1/144 gunpla? The stuff I was looking at is generally in 1/30 scale, which sounds way too small unless you want to do that whole "vast size of the mecha compared to something usual" thing

Hello fellow broke student. The thing about us is we trade money for time. Instead of hand painting just stop eating outside food and save enough for a (tanked) compressor and airbrush
>>
>>21300521
It's the thinner in the lacquer paint that kills the other coat but as long as the acrylic layer is fully cured you have to spray it on pretty thick for it to start eating through it
>>
>>21300562
that dries faster which is good for gluing things but bad for seam welding

honestly I was getting the same vibe as this viral japanese photo of some snapshitter's collection that he carefully took apart and gently scattered them and blamed his nieces/nephews on it so that he could get a bunch of money from them

he also overstated their value and clamed each kit was worth 'hundreds' even though they were very obviously just a bunch of unpainted retail HGs that honestly deserve to be in the fucking trash

I think in the end the dude got like $30,000 for this and that absolute piece of dogshit snapshitter probably laughed as he reassembled his worthless snapshits

You know what fuck this. It's a spray can, base coats don't matter at all. I just sprayed this shit right on, no primer or base coats or anything. I'm disappointed in Tamiya's flakiness though
>>
>>21300962
Forgot to mention that the soup spoon has a gb base coat and the actual pieces were bare plastic
>>
>>21300962
Did you shake the shit out of the can and run hot water over it before spraying? Also tamiya is known for giant metal flakes which makes their metallics look pretty shit
>>
>>21300969
Yes I comically shook it and put it in not-boiling water for 10 minutes and flipped it and did the ball rolling thing, the surface is leveled too so unfortunately it's not orange peel or something
>>
>>21300962
this is why mr.color is better than tamiya
