PSYCHOBLADE WOUNDWART UP
>>21297073Can still buy up to 3 at time of this posting.
>>21297089I think I just ordered all of them
what materials would you recommend for recasting beam saber effect parts? specifically the "energetic" shaped ones, like Sinanju's or Sazabi's
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?
>>21297097It could be dry particles hitting the surface. Maybe try 1:2 with 20 psi?
>>21297097so 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
>>21297129Thanks 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.
>>21297097Ideally 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 ?
I built the boy
>>21297290How’s the spin function on the HG?
>>21297038How do I monsterize him more?
>>21297308Is this Guren's claws?
>>21297308add a second set of arms. either the same size or normal barbatos sized
Mg hygogg when????
>>21297308Spiky/more angular shoulders
>>21297316After MG2.0 Kampfer
>>21297308use shielded wire to add biomechanical tubes between the armor gaps (neck, shoulders and torso) and add hand sculpted epoxy putty tubes on top of the armor to look like tubes bursting out of the "skin"
>>21297097You 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.
>>21297164Alclad is enamel. The label lies.
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?
>>21297234I 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 measureJust 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.
>>21297338it will get restocked anywhere from next week to about 5 years from now
>>21297308What is the big ass arm blade from?
>>21297337alcad is acrylic lacquer
>>21297344Is this for real? Wtf lol. It opened afternoon earlier and I think I saw it with 500 stocks but since the max limit per buyer was 6 then it ran out in less than a minute. I am also following the facebook page of pbandai SEA but didn't notice any weekly release for a same product or is it because impulse is popular? Dunno what happened for the past impulse pbandai kits like rg sword
>>21297349Bandai is far too unpredictable for any of us to pin down their mindset
>>21297349Oh nevermind, I guess you meant the chances or another wave can start in a week from now
>>21297349rule #1 of gunpla is don't try to understand the logic behind anything bandai does, that way lies only madness
>>21297097You're not supposed to use mr.color on top of alclad. Only use alclad clear colors on top of alclad chrome. It has a very sensitive finish that mr.color WILL destroy
With HG rose being released which will be next? I believe a retail RG master gundam is inevitable. But I could see bolt being the next p bandai hg
Man todesritter looks way more badass than the pale rider
>>21297402the rest of the shuffle alliance is pretty much guaranteed, and spiegel is highly likely too. Fingers crossed for Rising too. RG Master and Shining have been my biggest hope since God's announcement, and they're both looking pretty realistic now, and unlike everything else I mentioned I reckon they have at least a shot at being retail
>>21297402pg nether gundam obviously

Friendly reminder that the Nu Gundam is most likely going to be the next Perfect Grade.
>>2129744695% of people here have probably never even seen a perfect grade box in person
>>21297446It's gonna be a PGU with all those hatches and psychoframe LEDs
>>21297449no the next pgu is going to the pgu ball
>>21297446while on paper that makes the most sense, I don't think it will happen for that exact same reason. bandai gonna do some weird shit instead.
>>21297446In that case, the PG(U) Sazabi will be released the year after
>>21297454>inb4 PG G-Self>and still no 1/100
>>21297308Get some shackles with broken chains on him
>>21297449Wasn'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.
>>21297475yes, that was a katoki thing. i can only assume katoki did the design for the metal structure as well
>>21297475psychoframe doesn't look any different than normal metal. unicorn and nu ver ka retconned this
>>21297475>RG was more anime accurate than Ver Kaneither of them were remotely anime accurate, the RG just cribbed notes from the Ver Ka and took out the memeframe
>buy some paints online>one of the colours looks absolutely nothing like the picture on the websitewish there was a good hobby shop near me, this happens too often
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.
>>21297492Buy a new monitor
>register on the Pbandai US store>free shipping coupon expires in less in exactly a month from the JP/Sea Gundam Rose Pre order launchSurely Bamco wouldn't delay the US pre orders by a month to save money from the coupons expiring.
>>21297505sucks but theres plenty of good stuff to choose from right now, i made a new account to grab a woundwort
>>21297491At least the RG used it's psycho frame more modestly than the MG Ver.KA
>>21297454Well, 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.
>>21297517with delicate funnels, that's a universal constant between Nu models
>>21297394That sucks. I bought like 6 or 7 jars of various mr color clears. What a waste. Thanks anyway
>>21297524try clear coating the chrome with aqua gloss then putting the mr color over that
>>21297528Good thing I have some spoons left to try this on. Any recommendations for aqua gloss? (pressure/number and heaviness of coats/distance)
>>21297308handpaint it like a Tyranid
>>21297531it has instructions on the bottle
>>21297520I 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.
>>21297503Not him but I literally have a reference grade monitor for my work. Doesnt matter how accurate your display is if the pictures aren't
My hydra gundam came today >:) also came with a big plastic bag from the gundam factory which is pretty cool
>>21297524Do 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
>>21297550well, 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.
hguc apsalus iii in 2025. build a figure scheme where parts for the apsalus will come with other kits in the 08th MS Team line (HG, RE/100, MG, SD), so you have to get the whole set to build the apsalus iii. will you support it?
>>21297558if it means we get more re/100 kits i'm down
>>21297558No but I know a hundred idiots here would

my local target got a whole bunch of battleogue stuff in today. Saw Red Astray Inversion, Livelance Heaven, barbataurus, perfect strike freedom, heavyarms, quant, and some other shit
>>21297583qan[t] and perfect strike are pretty neat, just saying
>>21297587I picked up livelance and qan[t]. Almost went for perfect strike freedom but I have a strike freedom and I wasn't sure what the differences are
Okay what are you gents getting tonight?I was thinking the complete fleet, HAZE’N-THLEYⅡ RAH, and todesritterThose giant ass gun expansion sets look tempting too could be fun to use on something else Also got the psychoblade but thinking of canceling it since I already have the regular TR-6

>>21297647yes i really want that poop zaku

>>21297675was this the mystery box
>>21297675Oh man that's actually fucked lmaoSome damn warehouse worker looked at that and thought it was okay to do
>>21297683>warehouse workers>giving a shit about anything
>>21297683i seriously doubt they get paid enough to give a shit
>>21297617coz his stock came in and wants one for display
>>21297678>>21297680>>21297682>>21297683They can suck me, It's going right back>>21297675>"Yea just put this reference number in to process a return">Pulls up an order for two 50 cent Paintbrushes>Have to go out of my way to take a pic of the order sheet and start a support letter to returnDude fuck Hobby Lobby lmaoThis is some Nippon Yassan shit
>>21297695cant you just resell them locally?>2x 50 cent paint brushLMAO
>>21297695>paint brushhow in the goddamn fuck???was the store worker at like 4 days without any sleep, high, just not giving a shit, literally held at gunpoint by his boss to work faster, or all of the above?
>>21297694Are you gpanon? Also do post it when you're done. Wondering how that company is.
Not bad for a two day build and paint. First build for my brother and we made it super gaudy.
>>21297702I don't think you understand just how little people care.
>>21297591I want the Re-GZ and I guess the Jegan but I don't really want to pay for them.>That space AK
>>21297702i can see you've never worked a retail job
>>21297708I forgot to ask - how often has the Re-GZ Custom been restocked on pbandai? If often, may just wait as a zoid is calling my name.
>>21297709>Warehouse>RetailAlthough 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.
>>21297710i saw it reprint like 3 times now in the us store
>Two gundam model kits? Bam found two of them, boxed, put in their sku, oops typo, who cares? Fucking ship.
>>21297704no im not. gpanon isnt a degenerate lolicon pervert.
>>21297591I'm gunning for a Woundwart and a Todesritter.I'm new to consolidating order though. Bandai charges shipping before you get to the consolidation part, so do they refund the now extraneous shipping or are your just fucked out of that money?
>>21297719Yes they refund the shipping. Otherwise there would be no reason to do it.
>>21297720Throwing multiple orders into one box and pocketing the extra shipping costs wouldn't be the most fucked up thing I've seen from a company, and Bandai isn't known for being charitable. Thanks for the answer.
>>21297727It's one of the few nice things they do. The only sucky part is that they do charge you again for the order in full minus the extra shipping. The rest does get refunded though.
>>21297705Is that the 2000 edition one? Those are rare and pricey
>snapfag repellent since the kits look like a brick oobWhen are you taking the SD pill
>>21297591I want the Stark Jegan but I can't wrap my head around what fucking mental condition caused Bandai to charge 82 bucks for it.
>>21297713This>Hobby Lobby does not use barcodes And holy fuck what is hobby lobby owned by some 68 year old boomer who won't change or upgrade their inventory system. Haven't bought anything from them in years.
>>21297742The printing on the box says 2001. I got it from Newtype for $40. I doubt it's actually from 2001 though.
>>21297775Have you done any other projects? How did you paint it?
>>21297760why tf would I get a fucking deformed midget, also most of them are dressed like they are the head kidmolester at the church
>>21297774An 81 year old evangelical feudalist.I'm not joking.
>>21297760never, i'm neither chinese nor southeast asian
>>21297798I can understand 81 years old, evangelical raises eyebrows but isn't impossible, but a fucking feudalist?
>>21297695Jesus. I definitely lucked out that they canceled my order the next day for whatever reason. Did you order this during the 40% model kit sale gacha they were doing?
All the three kits I need to make a psycommu zaku are coming in today...don't ask how much it all was.
>>21297713>Hobby Lobby does not use barcodes for anythingJust went and checked the shit I bought the other day, you weren't fucking kidding.
>>21297718What job do you have that requires you to make coompla for your boss? Why are you doing it at home instead of at work? Are you getting paid extra under the table? Does he have dirt on you compelling you to do this? Your story is full of holes.
>>21297809I did and still feels like a scam
>>21297760Hahaha. The most effective snapfag filter. SD is life.
>>21297798Jesus 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.
>>21297815It 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.
>>21297779I 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.
>>21297827Interesting. You didn't paint the gray and white parts?
>>21297826Yea.Hoping it get's processed
>>21297828No. 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.
>>21297833agreed, I think it looks very nice
>>21297827You should work on those stickers a bit
>>21297675Dude, 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.
>>21297809They do 40% off model kits once a month. Its part of the rotating sales they started to replace their weekly coupon.
>>21297838The 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.
>>21297850there are already rg god waterslides available from dalin, evo/simp, and delpi
>>21297850That 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 anythingyeah 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.
>>21297802>>21297820If only you knew how bad things really are.>t. wageslaving at Hobby Lobby
>>21297802>evangelical raises eyebrowsDo you not remember the lawsuit over them not providing contraceptives in their healthcare?
>these barcodes are just Satan's call signs>they gonna take ur soulI forgot this was a thing in the 90s, yeah I'm staying away from hobby lobby.
>>21297872I'm not surprised. Yet, I'm still surprised that Jews haven't sued them for not carrying Hanukah decorations. I had 2 women asking for that on the store on this week.
>>21297863Maybe 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.
>>21297591Wondwort.Also can someone explain why the fuck the psychowort keeps going in/out of stock the past few days?
The F90 is not a passion project of someone at Bandai, this is.
>>21297895people cancelling their orders
>>21297896Bro that discussion is like a week old.
>>21297897I thought PB didn't allow that sort of thing?
>>21297898I am literally
>>21297899why would you think that when there's a giant button that says cancel order on all the order information pages?
>>21297899You can so long as the preorder period isn't over. Sometimes it gets cut short though if it sells out fast
>>21297901Never 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. I just assumed, Bandai being one of the most money grubbing companies on the face of the planet, you were locked in once you ordered.
>>21297904Bandai don't give a fuck because someone will buy it eventually.
>>21297890That 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.
>>21297914Right 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.
>>21297932Last 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>>21297940Individual stores have different inventories. Mine likes the Mk. II AEUG and has a bunch, along with Char's Origin Zaku and Barbatos Lupus Rex.
>>21297955Yes, 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.
hey you guys dont mind giving me a 5 minute head start so i can get my woundwort right?
>>21297650I didn't know Hobby Lobby sold cats. Very cat.
>>21297994That's such a good deal. He is getting the best product for waterslides.
>>21297993no, i gobbled up all of the psychoblade woundwarts and ill gobble up all these woundwarts
>>21297993I can cancel my 10 psychoblades I have preordered at a certain time tomorrow. Might give you a chance at one
>>21297998I will gut you up like an avocado if I can't get a Woundwort.
cant wait to see all the painted woundworts here in 6 months or so!lol
>>21298006I have my 2 painted. Not posting them because of the homsexuals that lurk here such as yourself
>>21298013its that bad huh? even I post my kits that turned out bad
What are gonna be the best kits to scalp tonight? AoZ stuff seems a given. Maybe that big set with 4 of them as well. Probably buy like 5 of each
>>21298006I kinda want to take my Clear Color Wondwort I pre-ordered and paint it based on my BF's moth 'sona.Probably gonna be a bit though. I've never painted a kit before, and I really want to do it right.
>>21298028Special coating FAZZ and Gundarium Gundam.
Is there any difference between the regular Quanta vs Full Saber besides the sword? I would just get the MG but I don't have room and prefer 1/144 scale. I already have a Quanta preordered for 30 hopefully coming by December but idk if it's worth to get a "premium" version and wait until next year
>>21298037RG noMG has a few improvements like a better v-fin that used to have problems popping off.
Whats the best version of 1/144 Gundam Mk2? HG or RG? AEUG or Titans
got my woundy thanks lads
Got my Wondwort.
>>21297998You missed a few because I snagged a psycho blade woundy.Also bag secured on a stark jegan.
What did you CONSOOM for today's drop?
>>21298091Aryan brotherhood and hazenthley rah
>>21298071>>21298078>>21298081>>21298089glad to see my fellow AOZ enjoyers are getting their woundwarts(even though I had plans to gobble them all up before you miserable whelps could).I managed to snag everything I wanted in a Woundwart, the Haze’n-thley, and the Graze ground type packive got a question though, assuming I cannibalize some legs from a Hazel Custom, would the Haze’n-thley II Rah kit give me all the parts I need to make pick related?
>>21298091>actually buying the age-2 Sad.
>>21298091Plus a normal Woundwart, a Todesritter, and some funnel effects for a Qubeley I picked up last week.
>>21298091This is bait right?
>>21298091Just the stark jegan today. I thought about the heavy gundam. I'm trying to lay off getting so much shit to backlog but on the other hand I have six months of lay off starting in january so it'll start shrinking soon.I might go back for an MG heavy gundam after my check next week though.
So I've got a High Grade Hyaku-Shiki... what color marker do I use for the panel lining? Black?
>All the AoZ lads in this thread>>21298091Peeved I missed the Todesritter before so that has been remedied
>>21298105I think I used grey on mine and it turned out ok. I heard someone say, and I will be doing this with my second Hyaku Shiki, to use the brown marker and it should look good
>>21298091there's a ton of stuff i want on this drop but i didn't get anything cos i went NUTS buying planes and supplies at my local shop yesterday so i'm not lookin to spend more $$$. hope i don't have to wait too long for the hazenthley to pop up again.
>>21298091I already ordered the Grand Slam Perfect Strike and some tools from Newtype's Black Friday sale. I'm spent for now.
>>21298091Nothing cause I don't have a p-bandai store
>>21298154God damnit I completely forgot about newtype. I just bought stuff elsewhere and it would have been cheaper there
>>21298154>Newtype's Black Friday sale>you only get 10% off unless you spend more than 250WOWEE A WHOLE 6 DOLLARS IN SAVINGS FOR AN RG ZEONG!
>>21298091Nigga what the fuck do you plan on doing with 5 Destiny Impulses
>>21298029dam, theres a girl that actually comes here?
>>21298184Buddha Destiny Impulse, maybe?
>>21298184Impulse version of the Concluder team, or whatever that supposed team of Destiny Gundams were called from that Heine's Destiny manual?
How long until EG Zakus
>>21298193Some time, hopefully. I need to get better at scribing on round MS.
>>21298186>moth 'sonadefinitely a gay furry
>>21298190I'm sorry your depression era family members died before you met them.
>>21298186LOL its definitely a faggot
>>21298184especially when we're getting the new rg that looks way better next month
>>21298184You know why.
>>21297917I'll have to keep an eye out for what they have, I've got all I wanted from your list, and some that doesn't interest me. As far as the Eclipse goes, I don't really have an interest in painting kits, but it might be the only thing worth using the store credit on. Maybe grab another Leo kit and give it the space Leo paint job.
>>21298091What site is this? The P-Bandai?
>>21298224It is okay, mate. Just some recommendations. I'm definitely nabbing an Eclipse when I get the chance too.>>21298228THE P-BANDAI
If I combine orders can I cancel one item from it afterwards or can I only cancel the whole order?
>>21298231>>21298233Haven't shopped at THE P-BANDAI yet. Mostly Newtype, Galactictoys, and USAGundamstore. Offline I go to the Hobbytown along with occasional trips to Hobbylobby. I have kits to last me a while I think.
>>21298273Me neither, and out of this drop I would get the Woundwort and the Hazel but I can't splurge money at the moment. Besides, I'm planning on buying the RG Hi-Nu, RG Sazabi and HG Nightingale for my birthday next year and set up everything for painting and customizing. We are gonna make it, bros.There's a high chance of me landing a new job on engineering and working towards getting my own homestead
>>21298184It was just a IMPULSE PURCHASE!
>>21298283Shouldn't you be plowing major robot thick pussy, Aruto?
>>21298184an*I'm sure I typed it.>>21298288Maybe.
>>21298280>spoilerGood shit anon, it'll work out and you'll find yourself having plenty of space for your kits.
i think i goofed up my gouf while trying to remove and redo the topcoat
>>21298294Thanks, mate. To celebrate I will get one of the Ortega Custom High Mobility Zaku and make a Gimli Custom. Gonna post it to show that I made it.
>>21298303I got one of HG kits coming in, the Black Tri-Star Zaku kits. I'm really liking that color scheme.
>third-party water slides for HG AerialDidn't expect this but nice.
>>21298311It is really nice, but I don't like them as much. Just going with the Ortega one due to the Axe and I like Gimli too. Now, Dom Test Type gets me hard every time.
>>21298140>hope i don't have to wait too long for the hazenthley to pop up againThis is your last chance for the next 5 years unless you're okay with paying double on ebay or getting the clear version
>>21298319Fair enough, looking forward to seeing it whenever you're able.
I have this flat sword piece that is a little bent underneath a paperweight that isn't too heavy but heavy enough to flatten it, how long do I wait for it to even out? I don't wanna try to straighten it out directly with a heating method cause I know I'll fuck it up more
I can get the HGAC Aesculapius for the same price as Preordering the RG Destiny Impulse.Which one should I get?
Real or Master Grade Zeong?
>>21297600Don't worry. I'm sure you will get a PeePoo store next year.
BREAKING: Bandai Hobby to “begin winding down United States plastic model distribution,” citing the failure of MG Stark Jegan to sell out even hours after release as a sign of “lack of enthusiasm for the Gundam brand in this territory”
For your clown color needs.
>>21298373>Making this shitpost using the Jegan>Not the 4 pages of clears that have been up for a week that no one wants
>>21298373according to the "official" rumor on all the most "trusted" insider circles the reason stuff was selling out so fast before was because certain resellers from a certain demographic were making accounts on the US site and ordering en masse to their american warehouses to then resell in asia
>>21298378only 1/5 of them are clear. you must REALLY hate clear kits for them to skew your vision that badly lmao
>>21298373Will they try the Canadian market then?
Is is necessary to apply gloss coat after painting before using the panel liner?
Why is there no RG Epyon, I thought Bandai loved making Wing kits?
Why is there no gunpla of this version? Why did they make 1 poopoo doodoo version and a special character version but not the best version of the grunt?
>>21298397>Why is there no RG Epyon yetFixed that for you.
>>21298399Dont be lazy and customize it yourself
>>21298394The 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.
>>21298399Isn't this from one of the proposals that completely ate shit?Also I think this is just a demitrainer painted black.
>>21298397There's an MG kit
>>21298094No, the TR-6 head, chest, arms, cock, and balls are all incompatible.The shoulders are the same but that’s about it.You can get a TR-1 hazenthley rah II and just strip off the hrududu II’s to get a basic hazenthley in titans colors tho. Pic related is not mine but tr-6 hazenthley is so sexy
>>21297798So this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJjmBrz65xM
>>21298414I know but my scale autism prevents me from getting it
>>21298402Why does bandai get to be lazy?>>21298410Yea the screenshot is but it was also in the earth riot suppression scene in an earlier ep so it’s a real version of the demi trainer.
What is this dumb trend I've been seeing youtube modelers do where they fill in a gap with a piece of pla plate and snip it off?
I would like to formally apologize to the anon who I called retarded for thinking that 30MM kits would be 30mm tall, on the grounds that bandai would never make model kits that small. Now that Gundam Artifact is in full swing and clearly not going away I think an apology is well deserved
>>21298397They do but RG line already has Wing Zero EW, Tallgeese, and Wing(which came out last year). Epyon's probably inevitable
I need inputs, do you guys think this metallic is perfect for the inner frames? Or is it too grainy/too much metallic flakes?
>>21298416surely you can just yank the waist off and replace it with a Hazel Custom's waste right?
I'm canceling 3 of my psychoblade woundworglers right now. So they might pop up to buy again soon. Not sure how fast it is
>>21298464please tell me you didnt use turbodork paint
>>21298469Got 2. Thanks anon. Left one in case someone wants it.
HG unicorn luminous crystal body back up
>>21298469I know you're probably bullshitting, but not only did I just get a psychowort, because I did, I got to consolidate my order and save myself a few bucks in the process. Your post got me to look, at least.
>>21298465No it’s a tr-6 drum frame instead of a primrose-based chest. It has a much higher parts compatibility with a fuckin woundwort kit than a hazel.
>>21298524gay, i feel scammed
>>21298465Here anon, just for you, I am like your personal dalong (because I love AoZ and someone aught to answer these nagging questions)Here is a side by side comparison
>>21298534oh I see now. thanks not-dalonganon, i appreciate it. Im less excited now for my Hazenthley but ill be patient to wait for a TR-1 release here i guess
Anyone else lose all their friends after starting this hobby?
How safe is it to airbrush mr aqueous or mr acrysion indoors compared to regular mr color paints?
>>21298556Considering you are comparing Mr Acrylic (Mr Acquieues and Mr Acrysion) to Mr Lacquer (Mr Color) types of paints then they are VERY Mr Safe
>>21298545Don’t worry anon, the TR-6 hazenthley is a fuckin badass kit. It’s huge, and definitely one of my favorites to gawk at on the shelf.The TR-1 is noticeably smaller but generally more robust and it’s nice to have both because they contrast with eachother really well. More reprints soon hopefully; both are great looking kits.

>>21298475I didn't, that was Mr color 29 (Steel). I tried to replicate the metallic inner frames that the jp youtuber usually use, but unfortunately I couldn't find Gaianotes Star Bright Iron, no luck. But looking at how the metal portion of the Metal Builds are also a little bit grainy, so idk
>>21298576That's a pretty fucking cool diorama.
>>21298556You can use water based acrylics as food dye they're that harmless
>>21298556aqueous are solvent based paints
I don't want to start you fags up on the big feet autism again, but man fuck these proportions
Is there anything extra I need to do to prepare ABS plastic to paint besides primer? I keep hearing that it's harder to paint on.
>>21298669They're fine, autist.
>>21298673It's harder for water-thinned, kid-friendly paint. Any paint that's stronger should have not much issue. It's also said to have a freak reaction with Tamiya's Enamel thinner.
>>21298681tiny anklesno neckfat doughy face; a gundam should look vicious not bored and bloated also garbage bag shoulders lol, atleast there isn't a massive gap
Lfrith has a black and pink limited and I’m just find out out about this. I’m pissed.
>>21298465>surely you can (do thing) with (two different kits that sorta look the same visually)No, anon. The answer to that is almost always "No" with a near 100% success rate.
>>21298673Wash with mild soap and warm water, and dry completely before you prime.
>>21298695Just paint it.
>>21298567>>21298641>>21298644Do you usually use primer for acryllic based paints? I think mr hobby and tamiya both use lacquer based primers, and I am trying to go full acryllic.
>>21298368 I wanna pee pee poo poo with the rest of you guys
>>21298632Thanks we worked hard on it
Do you need to thin fluorescent paint first?
>>21298669Right mogs the left
>>21298710If 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
>>21298753This happens to me a lot haha. The doctor says it's bad but I dunno, I think small doses every now and them could help strengthen me
>>21298765i've been progressively huffing thinner for longer and longer each day to help boost my immunity to it. i've been doing it for a few years now and i'm up to 6 hours a day
>>21298767A thought a was fucked when I accident drank acrylic paint (quick dry) but a remember I can just drink thinner to clean it out my intentines. Close call
>>21298710>Do you usually use primer for acryllic based paints?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
>>21298756quality of the kit sure, that's not hard with the old NT-1 being before full innerframes were a standard Bandai didn't even try with the headthey perfected rx-78 head shapes with the perfect, 1.5 and oyw and it's all been down hill since then
>>212987852.0 mg looks better than the lineart
>>21298091nothing because there's nothing good on pbandai>>21298464>>21298604holy graindid you use mr levelling thinner? use rapid thinner for metallics that need thinning or they're always going to turn out grainy as fuck.i'd recommend alclad or mr metallic gx rather than standard mr color metallics too, because they have much finer metal flake
>>21298669overall i much prefer the 2.0 but i wish they didn't twinkify the legs and feet>>21298815no it doesn't
>>21298815>potato face looks better than Izubuchi's peakno.

Is Delpi decal good? I want to get water slides for RG God.
>>21298763Mr Hobby Aqueous can be thinned with laquer thinner which makes it basically as durable as a lacquer
>>21298886delphi 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 meanother thing is that delpi doesnt do replacements for the foil stickers while dl model does give waterslides for the foils.So dl model gives more slides but personally I think delpi look better
>>21298890>>21298901If you can choose between Delpi, DL, and Evo Simp, which one will you get?
>>21298907Delpi, if you want to replace all the camera and metallic foil stickers with waterslides go dl.No experience with Evo
>>21298925Thanks, I'll get Delpi then.

Holy fuck do i have a serious skill issue with removing nubsI 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?
>>21299020Lots of suck
>>21298839>rapid thinner>mr metallic gxNoted, I will look into that thanks anone. Also, is this line any good?
>>21299035you 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>>21299049yes 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
>the only things that sold out were the todeshitter and the black gm sniper for snapbabies who cant paintlmao
>>21299072>black gm sniperPics?
>>21299057Im 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
>>21299072Why cant it be painted?
What should I dedicate my Christmas Eve to>RG God>HG The O>Aerial >Guel's Dilanza>Gun-EZ>Vagina Vagina>Daban's 1/48 Megasized Zaku (costs less than most of the other kits lol)
>>21299080>>21299091learn to read, I didn't say it can't be painted
>>21299095Guel's Dilanza is fancy like a Christmas Tree
>>21299106why cant you paint it
>>21299035You'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
>>21299106>Counterstrike meme gun
>>21299008imagine her ass on your face and then farting afterwards
>>21299119>This will prevent those nasty white stress marks, except when the actual injection site is fucked up and that can't be helpedThis happens more often then not, the only way for him to actually fully clean up the stress marks is to ultimately paint. Nothing to be done about it.
>>21299106does it have anything unique at all about it? ace waterslide markings or something? i get the gm sniper ii has a lot of fans for some reason but come on
>>21299132It is literally them recoloring and re-releasing the GM Sniper II again. Pic related.
>>21299135literally the only suit with "sniper" in the name that sucks
>>21299115I've been thinking hard about this for a week now cause Gunpla is all I care about and I might just go for that over all the others. Thanks Mr. Anon
>>21299135Although I should say, that if the gun is molded fully in those colors replicating the M40 that's pretty neat.
>>21299138Yeah the Dingo kinda sucks. At least they gave this recolor a new gun.
>>21299127Disgusting fuck >>21299127Holy fucking based he's just like me
>>21299119Thank youIm going to try cutting further away then hobby knifing before sanding and polish>>21299129Top coat will hide them better yea?
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.
>>21299152Buy 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
>>21299160i'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
So how am I supposed to prime my kits when it's fucking 0 degrees outside. Not really interested in spending 300 dollars for all the airbrush shit + a spray booth
>>21297035Please for fuck sake is there any fix or modifications that can be done to fix the HG Sazabi legs? It keep popping off. I tried changing the polycap but all I have are medium and small sized ones. Please, my Sazabi has been laying around without its legs more than 2 week now
>>21299213buy an airbrush and spray booth
>>21299214buy an spray booth and airbrush
Is it just me or does the Zeta Gundam gunpla line seem lower quality overall than say, 0079's gunpla?
>>21299228MK II 2.0 is still considered one of the best MGs today.
>>21299228just 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
Is using stickers as essentially pre-cut masking tape a 200iq move or is it a bad idea?I'm pretty much asking whether the adhesive used in them is strong enough to pull up paint
>>21299236200iq, though it depends on specific stickers really
>>21299238Well I'm planning on painting a HG V2AB and using the stickers to mask all the gray "slits" (I think they're missile launchers?) in the armor
>>21299249I think these should be fine based on dalong's pics. Don't have that kit myself so I can't say for sure.
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.

Daban MG MK III when?? And/or a general re-release of this kit.
>>21299299After Daban MGEX Strike Freedom
>>21298747P-please answer... :(
>>21299306you need to thin almost every paint. even a lot of pre-thinned paint could do with a little bit extra thinning
>>21299228Dunno 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 canvasThere'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
>>21299314>similar to the Crossbone kitsWhat do you mean? I thought HG Crossbones are really good except for non-separated yellow parts
>>21299311Thank you. Can I thin this with Tamiya X-20?
>>21299314based, though imo not a single design from zeta is really "dated".>>21299319in all fairness, so does the mg
>>21299322i've never used gaianotes so i might be wrong but aren't they all lacquers? and x-20 is an enamel thinner. i've heard of people thinning enamels with lacquer thinner but never thinning lacquers with enamel thinner, so i wouldn't risk it… but maybe someone who actually knows can chime in
>>21299299just get the daban re/100 release of it bro
>>21299333I thought they are enamel....
Speaking of HG Crossbones, has anyone built that Full CLoth version from build fighters? Anything problematic about it, like fragile parts etc.? I was thinking of getting it and painting in normal colors
>>21299334Wait pardon? Daban made a bootleg of the re/100 ? But why?
>>21299347>Daban made a bootleg of the re/100Yes. I even have it in my backlog>But why?Why not? They have a lot of stuff, even gold-plated Hyaku Shiki 2.0 with different proportions for example
>>21299350That'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.
>>21299319Something 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
>>21299152Im a filthy secondary that usually always swaps up the paint scheme, I usually just buy a few colors here and there with a general idea about what Im gonna do. Did buy the Gundam red and blue Mr Hobby Aqueous for the MG RX-79. Gonna hand brushing the asshole, I found thinning it with 91 %IPA and a dash of retarder works well as far as handbrushing goes
>>21299087Are you using a hobby blade for nub cleanup? I found nub management farrrr more easy, effective, and less of a chore when I mastered the way of the blade
>Gundamplanet>repackage versionWhat does this mean?
any tips for ensuring symmetry with masking or scribing?
>>21298554No, made a new one at my old job because of it actually. He was a dirty snapshitter when we first met, but ive been showing him all the crap you can/should be doing after you snap and hes all for it, excited about stepping up his game even. So the opposite of most of the shitters on /toy/
>>21299390not just /toy/, half of /m/ too
>>21299336You thought wrong.....
>>21297038Going to try scribing these massive blank sheets.Top or bottom?
>>21299214Wow that's weird the legs on mine are stiff as fuck but that's probably because I painted it. Try spraying it with some clear coat from hobby lobby or something
>>21299402>top or bottomLeft or right I suppose, even though I didn't post this off my phone, I manually rotated it and the icon shows it rotated.
>>21297096I would use china and about $5
>>21299391Yea thats fair. However over there they will spurg out hard if you just mention putting in the most basic extra effort on a kit.
Which HG Zaku is better, the Origin or the revive?
>>21299416origin looks cooler to me, and has more weapons
>>21299416the one you prefer the look of
>>21299416Origin if you like lots of details, revive if you're an "anime accurate" autist
>>21299402Right. Godspeed, thats gonna be a bitch
>>21297096I use this but switch the resin for clear resin
>>21299416they're both good, whatever you prefer looks wise just note that origin has more weapons while revive has optional rubber skirts and pipes to enable greater articulation.
>>21299230it'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).
>>21299416revive has absolutely crazy articulation. the entire upper torso can expand and twist at the chest to pull off poses like shooting the bazooka perfectly.origin has more surface details, but has a really ugly head and arms.
>>21298990Alright, I'll ask the one question everyone is probably thinking: Is this a porn figure? Does it have swappable bare titties and a horse pussy or something?
>>21299449no. it's designed by a porn artist (z-ton) but it's part of kotobukiya's arcanadea line which isn't explicitly lewd
>>21299295Modeler youtuber trend.
Ok, so what's the best method to apply holo decals and matte topcoat onto a figure without ruining the holo effect? Do I apply the decals first, topcoat them with gloss or semi-gloss, then mask them and use matte topcoat on the rest of the figure?
Aryan brotherhood sold out. Guess I'm keeping mine.
>>21299472I bought 3 so I'm definitely scalping 2 of them
>>21299463the first step would to be to use a spare decal to test what matte would do to the holographic effect. masking after gloss or satin would be the best option if the results of the test are undesirable.
Is there anyway to shrink plastic? Like take an MG kit and make it smaller?
>>21299517of course, just use the shrink ray
>>21299517>he didn't buy Mr. Shrinker
>>21299520>>21299527Shrinkydinks are a thing smartasses. You should go back to redit along with your holier than thou smug atheist fedora tipping attitudes. Fuckers
>>21299539Looks like someone is Mr. Grumpy
>>21299520>>21299527you fools, that's an utter scum and only complete retards fall for it>>21299539ah, thank you. Such a discerning customer like you must surely be aware of the wonderful Shrinkinator, am I right or am I right?
>replace all the mr with mcLol
>>21299584yeah uhhh can i get a bigmac and a large mclevelling thinner
>>21299517Yeah, buy an RG kit instead
>>21299548The largeinator is better
>>21299600They dont have an rg virtue and the hg is complete ass.
>>21299606Did they ever disclose how much these statues have cost?
Is the Master Grade AMX-004 Qubeley any good? I'd like to get something for my Hiyaku Shiki to fight. I've taken the MG/RG pill and it's very hard for me to go back, but if the HG Qubeley is better there's not much I can do.>JK02MGIt's a sign
>>21299610lol do you really think the guy in charge of bandai's wallet is gonna blab to everyone about how much money he tricked the company into giving his friends/family to build the statue? fucking think for a second
>>21299617visually it's fine. the moldings aren't as crisp as a modern kit and the internals are a little dated however.
>>21299617It’s pretty good
>>21299670Which gym does Qubeley go to?
>>21299670this is the least femboy qubeley I have ever seen
Uohhhhhhhhhh!!! child on spider mech !!! so erotic !!! ToT
>>21299689post pics after your boss cums on it
>>21299694And his dick pics too. For science
Anyone have the MG testament? Hoping it's good. Mines coming tomorrow
>>21299670Speaking of MG Quebley, whats the difference between the regular one and one on PBandai right now?
How badly outdated is the 2002 Zeong?
>>21299853They don't even look the same
what's it gonnna behttps://twitter.com/gsc_mechasmile/status/1595915180202143744
I built my first kit (RG-78-X Revival HG) but now I'm too scared to panel line it since it already looks good.I've got a black fine tip and the thick black gundam markers, should I get a grey for the white?
>RG zaku leg pipes still just as aids as i remember them being and the connectors snap as soon as you so much as even try to remove themi cant do it i cant TAKE this shit no more man
>>21299914You really need to strip this thing. Admit defeat.
>>21299912up to you, some people swear by grey on white. Personally depending on the suit I like black on white since it pops more
>>21299912Pick up some tamiya panel liner, zippo lighter fluid, and pointed cotton swabs. It'll cost you a little more, but the results are 10x better. The liner pens are still nice though for small touchups on the lining.
>spend 10 minutes looking for a part on the floor>turns out it didn't even fall off my desk in the end
>humidity hasnt been below 80 in weeks nowthe waterslides and topcoat have been itching to get on
>>21299934had 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
>>21299914>When you bring your Turn A on Nickelodeon's double dare
>>21299939for me it was the back of the hand for rg mk-ii's articulated hands.
>>21299954For me it was the faceplate of the RG Exia.
>>21299906Shark One from Garandoll
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?
>>21300006It'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
>>21299906I'm still waiting for my shin getter
>>21300010that's either genius or the single most retarded thing I ever heard, I honestly don't know which and I don't want to test it myself
>>21300006>>21300011>hot garbage with more hot garbage tacked on looks more hot garbage than the original pile of dogshit it originated fromkek
>>21300011the pbandai looks more accurate to the cgi short, but at the same time it feels a bit too much like the 2.0 zetathe twink legs with the shorter skirt really ruins the look of it for me desu. Also much prefer the edgier head and shouldersdaban'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
>>21299617it's acceptable if you get it for cheaplots of big parts that you sandwich togetherthe pbandai darned's big fingers don't articulate because fuck you
>>21300010Ask him how he does it.Test it with an entry grade gundam.
What kind of bases do you guys use for you 1/100th scale figures?
>>21300047none, i stand all my kits in a line in a generic A pose
>>21300010can 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?
>>21299386There'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
>>21300047Bandai brand bases that I've gotten for virtually nothing. Bases that have come with the suitsturdy bit of wire or pipe/rod attached to a wood base I've fancied up in my freetime

>>21300258That just means your lazy and have low self control when it comes to online shopping
>>21300305Didn't somebody just mention this in one of these threads?
>>21300291It's just poor impulse control idiots. Most are poor as dirt
>>21300245This. Credit Unions are the way to go.
>>21300305This has a 5 minute show in a shitpost of a show and got a kit. Think of all the designs in gundam that will never ever get one. LmaoAlso>big shit cannon is canon
>>21300370how come? i made accts with penfed a few months ago as my first of any sort but its been totally useless because they wont take them off limited status and wont tell me how to become eligible, i was considering taking the money i have in there out and just getting a bank
Got an Entry Grade for my birthday and decided to use it to try topcoating for the first timeLetting 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
>>21299995This would be great
>>21300388it'd look better if you painted it
>>21300421I'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?
>>21300425it’s actually pretty good for its time imo, long as you organize the screws its a decent kit
>>21300388are you going to topcoat over the stickers?pretty sure the topcoat helps hide the sticker sheen and edges
>>21300452bratty anon... tricking a newfag... needs rape correction
>>21300454wait am i wrong?do you not matt topcoat over stickers?i'm a newfag
>>21300454I don't recommend using stickers period, but he's not wrong, it does help hide sticker edges.
>>21300291>line of $12-60 kits>average JPN action figure these days is $60-120>good robot figures are like $100+ minimumNo, it's the poorfag cope hobby, really.
>>21300455>>21300461It absolutely does not hide sticker edges and also if the sticker has a clear part on it it'll frost over
EG RX-78-2[US]he cute>>21300452Hadn't planned on it.
Chances on Bandai ever reprinting anything from the EX-model line that has all the cool 144 scale vehicles? I heard the Hildolfr was getting a reprint soon so my hopes are up for the others from the line.
>>21300500My local store got an EX-15 in a few months ago but I can't remember if the bandai logo was blue or not
Gonna paint lacquer gold over acrylic gloss black I don't think anything will go wrong
>>21300515It actually is fine, dusty spoon aside. If lacquer doesn't fuck the acrylic up right now then will it be fine in the long run?
>>21300465You must be doing something wrong then. You spraying with too much humidity or in suboptimal conditions?
do you guys prefer MG or RG largegoose?they're the same price on amazonI kinda like the RG backpack more, but I'm told early RG kits had some major problems
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.
>>2130054399.9% 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
>>21300543I 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.
>>21300543i 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
>>21300541if they're the same price you're either getting a steal on the mg or you're getting fleeced with the rg
>>21300543I use this, any differences?
>>21300557fleeced on the RG, but I want a bigbird and I don't want to wait until March to get it
My literally retarded cousin found my gunpla and broke all of them, the only one I was able to completely salvage was my Zaku II Kai
>>21300541I like the way the MG looks more but the RG is better engineered
>>21300564they have a similar level of quality, don't pay over twice as much for the rg though
>>21300577I don't have a lot to begin with, but I have no idea where the fuck he put my MG RX78 or RG Char Zaku
>>21300584>>21300587thanks brosthink I'll just go for the MG, I'll pick up the RG sometime when I'm not paying scalper prices
>>21300592Next time you're thinking about buying gunpla buy a lock for your door instead.
>>21300592You kicked his ass right
>>21300592And nothing of value was lost.

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
>>21300592If you painted them, he wouldn't have thought they were toys.
>>213007711:150 and 1:100 are common train diorama scales try those
>>21300592>>21300570go ask your aunt/uncle to pay you back
>>21300624M8, for wageslaving jobs, just show up. Also, for the others, keep trying. Something will stick.
>>21300624Hello 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
>>21300521It'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
>>21300562that dries faster which is good for gluing things but bad for seam welding

>>21300896honestly 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 themhe 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 trashI 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
>>21298583god, these are so sexy
>>21298583how is the TR-1 hazenthley rah II?
>>21300912they know what's really important
>>21300832You 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
>>21300962Forgot to mention that the soup spoon has a gb base coat and the actual pieces were bare plastic
>>21300962Did 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
>>21300969Yes 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
>>21300962this is why mr.color is better than tamiya
>>21300976I'm watching Mr Crafta's Mr V2 and the Mr Metallic is so sex. He's doing on grey primer too
>>21300687It's not about being aerodynamic, it's about flexing on the other racers
