>>21456563Why did you use a reddit bait image for this
>>21456577Listen here little baby. You're gonna get a lot of hurtful and degrading comments, but that ain't what I'm about. Let me just say, you are perfect the way you are. You hear me sugar? PERFECT. Don't ever change. You deserve anything and everything you want. Stay safe for me, baby girl. >mfw thinking of you hurting
>>21456589Was it really? It didn't have the typical reddit filename, I wasn't able to find it from a cursory glance at and I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt. If it really is bait I'll delete the image.
>>21456602It's not bait some of us just like that color scheme and don't give a fuck what it's associated with
>>21456577where's your pharact >>21456607it's bait because someone posted it claiming to be the dude turning the mg or rg tallgeese into a leo
>>21456605Alright thanks. I think the colorscheme is good too but I would rather not have the thread turn into a shitshow because of it.>>21456607I was able to find the post so this one is bait, claiming to be someone else.

Just getting into the hobby and I discovered that my local Target has 3 EG Burger RX-78s. Wish me luck bros.
>was frustrated the other day with the Tamiya Extra Thin I had since it didn't seem to be welding the seams nearly as well as I needed>couldn't get that "overflow" effect, at most just made the seam line distorted>chanced into finding some Mr.Cement S last time I was at Hobby Lobby>try it instead on a beam rifle>instant line of plastic spoogeBetter than sex.
>>21456659The liquid cement in my Tamiya cement bottle fucking became solid and I couldn't use it. Dogshit brand for cement.
>>21456617That almost gave me a scare. Thank god ir's just an option and you can still transform it without partsforming.
>>21456675That's what happens when you leave the bottle open like a retard.
>>21456682Imagine how many fumes anon inhaled while that entire bottle was drying out right next to him
>>21456659Huh? Is it actually that much better?
What colors was it
>>21456682>>21456683Tamiya shills detected, my Mr Cement is still good as new.
anyone tried heatshrink to replace bandai's joint garbage bags?How is it?
>>21456698Riddle me this anon, how does anything dry without any air exchange?
>>21456702The cap was shit
I only buy perfect grades. Tell me why I should settle for anything less than perfect.
>>21456711Real Grade is better because it's real.
>>21456707I've got a 10 year old bottle, or nearly so, that isn't dry.
>>21456707Oh shit, I actually know what you're talking about now. I just remembered that when I initially bought my cement and extra thin, I used them each to seal the caps of the other one. I had the same problem as you but I guess I was able to fix it because of my good sense of smell. You were totally sniffing the fumes.
>>21456686It's thicker. The Extra Thin was drying too fast for me to get reliable results out of it. I'm sure Extra Thin is fine for other types of work, but for the kind of seam welding I'm doing I'd say Mr.Cement is probably better.Keep in mind that Tamiya Extra Thin (green) and Tamiya Cement (orange) are not the same thing and the latter is probably closer to what Mr.Cement is, though I haven't used it myself.
>>21456707>>21456720Here's what I did with the cement, worked like a charm
>>21456725Wait till you find out about the white caps.
>>21456715High Grade is better because weed.
>>21456725The whole point of extra thin cement is to let capillary action do the work in running down seam lines. You let the parts be a knife blade apart and dab the brush a bit along the seam, then squeeze shut.
>>21456750That's what I had been doing, but the results were extremely underwhelming no matter how much I applied and I wound up having to use CA glue as filler.
>>21456756Works for me, I dunno. CA glue is a lot better for seams in the longrun anyways, much quicker to work with. I mostly just use cement for plaplate work now.
So is anybody getting this guy?
>>21456782>japanese site ends up costing like a dollar less than the US site thanks to no tax and you end up getting it 2 or 3 months earlierWhy buy from the US site at all?
>>21456745Master grade for the master race.
>>21456789Shipping is only like $4 from the US site and if you wait til its in stock rather than pre-ordering you can ship multiple things at once
are offbrand top coats from the hardware store fine or do they need to be special stuff for these?
Why is building PG Unicorn such a slog? It's literally just a big MG with LEDs
>>21456831Because it's big.
Is there a list of every MG that can accept a head LED?
>>21456831>LEDsLet's hope your slog was worth it and the LEDs don't burn out like I hear bandai LEDs are infamous for.
>>21456789the us site is $7 cheaper for me
>>2145669741%>>21456830they're shit. Sprays at higher psi your typical hobby spray can so not only will your results be worse they'll run out as fast or faster than a regular hobby specifc spray can (eg a mr topcoat can). You're not gaining any benefit from cheaping out a few bucks.
How do you guys topcoat your metallics? I've used gloss on shiny gold/silver parts, but I've never done metallic inner frames before, and am wondering whether I should use a satin or maybe even a matte coat so it doesn't clash too hard with matte outer armor
>>21456782I'm waiting for actual irl pics of the kit
>>21456886Metallics under matte will turn kind of dull. Satin I've never used because it's literally the same sheen as the plastic. So just go with gloss.Or alternatively, don't even bother painting an inner frame, unless you're planning to display the inner frame.
>>21456936>putting that much effort into drawing a shirtless burly man on a shieldHomosexual behavior.
>>21456910I usually only paint the joints and other parts that are visible under the armor, but with something like MG Barbatos I thought I might as well just paint the whole thing
mastershits (mg) is a dying scale. hg and rg are the future
>>21456948>rgnot until they make something that isn't a rival/protag suit
Bros I'm nervous as fuck about my first time painting
>>21456959just don't be an idiot and try your first time with a rare or valuable kit, so you don't feel as bad when you inevitably fuck up. Also spoons
>>21456967It's just a common HG. I'm clueless in regards to mixing and thinning the paints though.
>>21456959In addition to what the other anon said, remember that there's nothing wrong with a simple paintjob and you don't have to throw yourself into advanced techniques right from the start
>>21456971What "advanced techniques" are there in terms of painting, just weathering and stuff?I'm still trying to figure out what's considered a full "layer" of paint, like if it's just one sweep with the airbrush, and how you deal with doing that across both sides of the part where there will inevitably be overflow
>>21456971>you don't have to throw yourself into advanced techniques right from the startthis hobby is painful for someone like me that likes doing exactly that.>>21456972there's preshading, weathering/chipping, metallic and candy coating, enamel washing, camo, doing shit with the eyes (if you're doing a monoeye, you can just stick a rhinestone on there and call it a day)
What are you using instead of spoons since plastic ones got banned by eu?
>>21456999Plastic spoons because I don't live in the EU.
>>21457014Oi, you got a loicense for that fork m8?
>>21457014They banned all plastic cutlery FUCKING faggots
>>21457021You can still buy it on internet
>>21456886I hate the gloss effect because I think it's too much for metallics and glossiness ends up making it look very plasticky (this really only works if you're doing candy colours of metallics, so silver basecoat + clear colour), so I often go with semi-gloss/satin topcoat.>>21456910>Satin I've never used because it's literally the same sheen as the plasticAre you retarded? Have you not seen how metallic surfaces reflect light? Because it sure as fuck isn't a glossy surface for the majority of refined metals.
>>21456936I mean cool, but why though. What's cool conan shit got to do with gundam.
>>21456954>What are RG Evangelion mechas?>What is RG GaoGaiGar and Goldion HammerThe future is now old man.
>>21456699I can't imagine it's good for the plastic
>>21457079all protag suits sans 03 and 06
>>21457114oh like not doing it while it's on the frame itself, but a similar idea as the pic posted

>>21456886>How do you guys topcoat your metallics?i don't>>21456888why? it'll look just like the render when you've finished seam welding and painting it>>21456959there's nothing to be nervous about. paint isn't permanent, if you fuck it up literally just strip it and try again
I just want a jehuty
>>21457191There will be a RG The O, but will be a P-Bandai variation of the Over-On sharing the same parts, with extra stuff to make a yellow Over-On, and costing triple the price.
how are the HGUC S and Ex-S? with the old HGs it's really a crap shoot which still hold up perfectly fine and which really need an update
>>21456936Awesome stuff. What are the plans for the rest of the suit?
>>21457210>will be a P-Bandai variation of the Over-On sharing the same partsthat implies Over-On will get a regular retail release so okay
>>21457222It will be a lottery only kit but the Japanese government will assist in selecting winners after revealing their mass surveillance system to keep track of good citizens in the year 2077
>>21457201>paint isn't permanent, if you fuck it up literally just strip it and try againWait you can do that? How?
>>21457240>>21457238isopropyl alcohol works just as well as marketed paint strippers as long as its a high enough concentration(90% or higher)
>>21457238there are a ton of brands of dedicated paint strippers, one i see mentioned a lot as being good is bio-strip. but even just isopropyl alcohol will work too (that's what i use because i always have some around) even for lacquers.
>>21456936>acrylics this dude just made mustard gas
wtf is "nonzero entropy of titans"anyway there's a kit of it coming out
>>21456699I've done it on my old MG RX-78-4 and 5 as well as my GM Type Cin pic related is the RX-78-5 you can see it around the elbows but it's also around the waist peg and around the lower ankle
>>21457263how's the flexibility and articulation with them?looks slick on the 5
>>21457263should also note that it can limit mobility a little
>>21456565finished the god gundam this weekend after whining about not getting one here for months
>>21457238just sand it off
>>21457269also got the effect parts, though it's kinda lame they only gave 4 swirly effects. So even if you get 2 god gundams you couldnt do the godfinger and sekiha tenkyoken together
>>21456565After finally digging out the MG AV-98 Ingram in the background and realising I was both horribly out of my depth and having a lot of fun, I decided to move onto an HG ground gundam. Have neither the skill nor materials to paint beyond some gundam markers. Think he's looking pretty alright for a first 'proper' attempt though. Still need to do the backpack, guns and shield.
>got my glass file, white and grey balancers, and denim patches in>literal magic at removing nub and mold linesHoly fuck, I don't know who recommended these, but thanks you glorious fucker!
>>21456936How'd he strip it in layers like that?
If it doesn't ooze out you're either starting with the pieces too far apart or not using enough cement. Always use thrice the amount of cement you originally intend to. Have it ooze out before you even squeeze the pieces together, take a sniff of the cement. Make sure the cement is flowing through every little angle, lick the brush. Swab the brush above the cracks instead of keeping it in one place like you're panel lining, drink the cement. Chug the cement, buy more bottles of cement
>>21457371Anon, i still see cement in that bottle
>>21457372My forth one today mmm :P :D/ Tamiya
>>21456561What's the source for the OP pic?

How often does Bandai reprint or HLJ restock non-Gunpla kits? I cam across this Mazinkaiser model kit:https://www.hlj.com/1-144-scale-hg-mazinkaiser-infinitism-bans58210Came out in 2019, no idea if it's even been reprinted since. Saw it was in stock on a few other sites, but they either don't ship to my country or people say to stay away from them, like MyKombini.
>>21456808>>21456857Thanks to NY jew tax it ends up being more expensive for me. Plus its a multiple month longer wait. So for me then it makes 0 sense to buy from it. I also get orders from their JP site 2 days after shipping for some reason whereas the US site takes a week to get here lmao
>>21456789Some states enforce a tax to be paid for online purchases and if they find out you tried to get around it, they smack you with a fine.
>>21457397I think they did reprint a bunch of Infinitism kits along with Zero...just not that one, even though they specifically advertised it in SRW30.
>>21457431Guess I'll just backorder it and hope it does get reprinted eventually. Thanks.
>>21457361>needing any of that for nubs or mold lines
The process of coaxing it to kneel with the rifle was so much harder than any construction step. The torso opened. The hand came in two. The other hand fell off for some reason. All at once, repeatedly.I'll finish the accessories when the thought of moving it again doesn't make me wish for death.
>>21457433Interestingly: if you buff using iron-on denim patches it results in the exact same semi-gloss finish that's on most bandai plastic.
>>21457482I assure you that both this photo looked in focus on my phone and I didn't think about the amount of /m/ in the background.Guess that's my robot shelf now.
>>21457361>glass fileHow does that work exactly when you compare it to regular sanding spongers like the ones made by Godhand?
Any update from the gunpla.es Hi-Nu anon? I just hope I didn't recommend a store that fucked somebody over.Though one other anon got the Aerial just fine.
>>21457552nta but I bought the mg Fa ver ka and the rg crossbone from them before. Store is alright. Crossbone box arrived slightly dented but that is not their fault
>>21457397My local store just got in a reprint of the Mazinger Z, Grendizer, Great Mazinger, etc.
>>21457533It has significantly more cutting power on raised bits like nubs, but does very little to the part itself given how the cutting geometry works. Essentially, since the cutting bits are inset rather than extruded like in sand paper: when run along a largely flat surface: only raised bits will get caught. Mostly it just polishes the flat bits a little if anything.
>>21457592just be careful around edges with it, it's easy to sand down the part itselfalso it generally doesn't work well on curved parts
>>21457595>doesn't work well on curved partsSo they're useless then.
>>21457602most nubs are on straight surfaces and slight curves aren't going to be an issue either. it's really just kits with mostly rounded parts and curved silhouette that you're really better off with sandpaper or sponges. A metal file isn't going to work any better on them. Probably worse.
>>21456592Wholesome as can be, your alright anon.
>>21456618So if I put down a steel color over this will it look bad?
>>21456626If you have a Hobby Lobby be sure to check there too. They have a 40 % off sale on models every other week, so if you wanna save money just wait a week if the sale isnt up
>>21456936At last. Someone with taste. Malaise gunpla is the way of the fucking future!
>>21457606And the surfaces that they're good on could easily be handled by knives, hence why there's no point in getting your meme files.
>>21457636>could easily be handled by knivesfucking lmao
>>21457641i like the arm mounted sturmfausts but other than that it's kinda just less cool kampfer
The new anime has me replaying the game now and I was wondering how good the Nier Automata flight unit model kit is. Anyone here put one together?
>>21457641Where is this from? I like the head design.
>>21457641It's kind of a edgier kampfer because of the additional spikey shoulders and legs, but I like it.
>>21457648Build Divers Genius Head Line. It’ll come out as a P-Bandai sometime soon.
>>21457638Not my fault you're a skilllet
>>21457638Whats wrong with a Hobby blade. Its my second most used tool behind my nippers. With proper technique its great
O Plamor, will any of my packages come this week?
>>21457641the skirts and shoulders ruin it.
>>21457397I've been wondering the same thing, because I want one of those damn things too.
>>21457665That's with 2 Ls
>>21457641schwer means heavy so its like FIGHTER HEAVY in badly translated german which explains its more bulky appearance.but imo that kinda misses the point, doesn it? the kämpfer was meant to be a glass cannon that sacrifices armor to be faster and more flexible.either way I'm ordering the regular MG Kämpfer first. is it a good kit? I'm asking because its an old one.
>>21457691It's infamously bad (by modern standards). It can look good if all you're planning to do with it is look like your pic
>>21457691>is it a good kit?I'm gonna have to set up a filter for this question I swear it gets asked like 10 times per thread. No every kit is bad stop buying them
>>21457626Closest one is an hour away, but I'll get over there and check it out in the near future. Thanks for the advice.
>>21457641Fuck that shit, I want this version of Kampfer.
>>21457691it's not that weird of an idea actually, there is some precedence for itthe Titania is a Kampfer frame with custom armor on top of it and is a dedicated high performance commander use machine. Whereas Kampfer is a hit-and-run suit where the run part is optional and the MS's design doesn't try very hard to protect the pilot. Reworking it into a heavier machine can be a good way to give it some more staying power while still benefiting from the suit's mobility
>>21457705>says kampfer>posts blue sazabi???????
>>21457653A kit would be cool, even if it's PB.Hope it'll be an HG though, but I kind of doubt it since all the kits from that line have been 1/100 so far from what I remember.
Is there a model kit of this version of GaoGaiGar?>>21457712Yes.
>>21457771not yet, but given how well the RG is selling, I think we can expect one in due time.
>>21457771There will be PB next year. Right when they announce RG King JDer and Hakaioh anime adaptation
>>21457701Is anon a good kit?
>tfw no Lego Gunpla
>>21457701its an important question

>>21457832Couldn't delete this.I laid down some GX Metal Black, i might use the same color for the frame parts. The barrel, screw and small detils will be hand painted in gun chrome, and the rest of the gun will be painted in launcher strike green along with the rest of the weapons.

>>21457857kudos for creativity, but legofags have to be delusional to think this is visually appealing
>>21457857it sort of has a "dom from gundam sentinel by michael bay" charm to it
wtf, mr color c32 dark grey (2) smells like shit. doesn't have the sweet smell all the other paints of theirs i've used to far have, almost smells like fucking dulux wall paint. it's not quite as bad after thinning with mlt but it still smells bad. at least it doesn't linger
>>21457771MW Model made a kit version of that paticular figure, though it's a third party aka bootleg, so I don't know whether it has any issues or not.There's also the Super Minipla.
>>21457890All these paints smell like shit. I just finished the metal black and my chest and nose hurt. It doesn't help that I work at a steel mill.
>>21456565Nice, made the op again. Been a while.
Has anyone tried to or successfully made a combiner mecha from military and train model kits? As in an original machine.
>>21457894>All these paints smell like shitcompletely disagree. most mr color lacquers and their levelling thinner smell awesome. and so do alclads. gsw's alcohol-based chrome is also pretty nice.it's just this grey i have that smells like shit, completely different smell to the other mr colors i've used
>>21457667When was your last blood sacrifice?
Oh man, cleaning round edges is so hard~Makes me want to get a glass file and whatever meme tool that just builds kits for me instead~
>>21457894>my chest and nose hurti've never had this problemweaklings like you should be wearing a stalker suit
>>21457923okay, now clean the nubs.
>>21457923okay, now weld the seam
>>21457923okay, now seduce me
>>21457920It's been about a month. Think he's hungry?
>>21457926On the blue part? Working on it.>>21457927When I begin paint prep.>>21457929See pic
>>21457667>ask again next week
>>21457933no, the grey part. you don't think that's a cleaned nub, do you?>pic UOOOOH SEXXXXOOO
>>21457925Ive been working in a steel mill since October. Every morning I spit and cough up black stuff (steel dust, oily smoke) and other bi-products of the environment.
>>21457940thats pretty bad, that stuff is supposed to stay inside you. Next time when you spit it out do it in a cup so you can drink it again
>>21457933That's some rough jaundice.
>>21457936>greyThink you might be colorblind there, anon
>>21457933its missing something
>>21457632I will create even more. What are some good kits to paint custom art on?
>>21457952I assume that things with big open surfaces could be good for that, like the shoulders on Qubeley or Hy-gogg, or Master Gundam’s cloaked mode.
any ideas what could be used for converting hg hyaku shiki into zero shiki? For the backpack i'm planning to use Nemo's backpack and obv Rick Dias's binders as well as it's thrusters on the shoulders, but the lower legs are pretty much completely different and nothing comes to mind that has a similar shape.
starting my hg gigantic arms right now, really annoying there are multiple different runners with the same letter
>>21457958I'm thinking more like the RG Tallgeese, anything with a big shield (RX-78 and related), maybe the HG Moon Gundam, maybe the shoulder armor on Zakus.
>>21457958>Master Gundam's cloaked modeyes that would be fucking awesome, >>21457952 you better do it
>>21457964>lower legsMark II for most of it, the back of calf and outside of leg thrusters could have close approximations taken from GM Sniper II and Hizack or Alex etc.
I'm so excited.
how's the hg bawoo?
My mr cement s doesn't seem to work as good as everybody else's. Even if I try to almost pour it in and fill in the piece a bunch if times to get as much as possible on it and squeeze as hard as a yeti jerking off I can never get clean closed seamlines. Not sure what else to do.
>>21457989i'm having the same issue with tamiya's extra thin, though i'm gluing pla plates. so far my best guess is not sanding well enough (evenly enough?) to create a good surface for the cement to take

the IBO mobile game apparently revealed a Hajiboroshi upgrade. I reckon it's a matter of time before it gets a kit.
anyone got a list, or can at least name a few, HG kits with the longer style beam sabers in yellow?
>>21458250Is the game popular enough for its OC donut steel Gundam to get multiple kits?
>>21458297it's IBO so it's gonna cost pennies to make the kit, especially when it'll be a remold of hajiroboshiplus IBO still gets regular retail HG releases which seem to sell well

having issues with this piece unicorn gundam 02 banshee RG. specifically its step 05-3 sub step 2-3 i cant get the pieces to fit in correctly, did i do something backwards here?
God damnit. Ive been getting really good results with airbrushing acrylics. But then I tried yellow and its been nothing but trouble. Sputtering, clogging, dry tip. I think I've almost found a combination to fix it but I already ruined a couple pieces and I have to go back and start them over now. Do lacquer yellows have issues?
>>21458580Looks like you've done it in the wrong order for one
>>21458592i snapped on E1 7 yes but thats not causing the issue it seems that A1 37 and 38 dont fit around the chest correctly
>>21458580cant really tell anything from this pic except that the order is wrong
>>21458584the yellow i worked with the other week went flawlessly for me. i remember people saying that different colors sometimes have different requirements for thinners or air pressure, so maybe you just didn't have the right balance
>>21458584In my experience yellow is always really thin and pools up really easily, but it sounds like you're having the opposite problem. Maybe try to get some airbrush flow improver?
>>21458584Gaianotes yellow is the best on the market. Never had trouble with it even spraying it on dark plastic. It just goes on so much easier than Vallejo I can never go back
>>21458584Yellow covers like ass in 99% of cases but I've never had what you're describing. I use mr hobby and tamiya paints mostly.
The foil stickers in my RG MK. II kit fused with the backing and cannot be used.I just bought this last week, what the fuck.

>>21458691It's got the blue Bandai logo, so it can't be that old. I have older kits that didn't have this problem.

>>21458691>>21458702You can check exactly how old it is with the clocks printed on the runners. The two numbers is the decade, the clock that goes from 0-9 is the year, and the clock that goes from 1-9,X,Y,Z is the month.
>>21458683It's God telling you a sign not to use them because they're fucking tacky as shit.

>>21458746wait? this is a false reality? how do I LEAVE? Please I don't want to live in this simulation!
I heard that the faux gold material for the MGEX Strike Freedom is more brittle than the usual plastic Bandai uses for their models.Is there any truth to this?
>>21458752I'll tell you when I get my MGEX.
>>21458752just fake news, that one pic of some guy's MGEX Strike Freedom snapping at the waist joint was just because he was a hamheaded idiot using gorilla strength to test the limits
>>21458752partially true. a lot of retards go on about "gold plastic syndrome" which used to be an issue with gold kits due to the plastic not being UV stable and getting damaged over time. however this isn't an issue with modern gold kits (no matter how much hamhands try to blame it on it). what is true, is that the metallic flake, by nature acts almost like a small void in the plastic, making metallic plastic around 90% of the strength of normal plastic. it's honestly fine.
>>21456565BB8 and R2D2 wip. Unsure if I want to paint the camera units.
>>21458762I'm training my grip strength and I will buy the MGEX and attempt to crush it to pieces in my hands
>>21458762Every time someone says this it's invariably wrong. The problem is the plastic mixture itself, it cannot be made stable. Give it about 5 years, it'll crumble like all the rest.
>>21458817Show me a 5 year old kit that is crumbling
>>21458817My RG Amatsu Mina is still fine and I bought it around 2018-2019 when I first got into the hobby. Even smeared the gold with tamiya panel liner without topcoating.
Just got my Aerial on HLJ. I only backordered it in December so I thought it would take much longer.
>>21458819I'll get back to you in 5 years
Does anyone know or have a pic of a kit that used this as a panel liner? Trying to see if the red is right.
>>21458852Just buy the resin kit I don't think Bandai gives a fuck about Thunderbolt anymore>>21458854You actually don't wanna use this as panel liner since it pools up and turns matte when dry. You're supposed to dab it on spots that you want to look rusty or like a bunch of red sand got trapped in it
>>21456626This was surprisingly satisfying. I'll probably attempt the stickers this weekend, and when the tools I ordered come in, I'll try to clean up the nubs a little.
>>21458853Reply to this post with a trip so I'll know it's you in 5 years.
>>21458862>You actually don't wanna use this as panel liner since it pools up and turns matte when dryOoh thanks for that, so are there any alternatives for a red panel line?The RG GGG I'm working on has stealthgao with a ton of panel details and I was thinking of using red as an accent colour.
>>21458862Aren't TB Acguys smaller than their normal UC counterparts? Pretty sure a resin conversion won't cut it.
>tell myself I'm done with buying any more Gunpla for January at least>Xi Gundam restockedI have learned I have almost no impulse control.

Can I use thin cement to correct a scribing mistake or do I have to use putty
>>21458817everyone point at the hamhands and laugh
>>21458889Yes. It's late.
>>21458888I've bought AB 1, 2 and 4 clones before. The 4s are terrible, they don't have any locking mechanisms and just rely on the screw holding everyrhing together. The 1s were were fine, except the base plates were warped on all 3 that I got, so they wouldn't lay flat on the shelf without some sanding or heating up and warping them back.The 2s were perfectly usable and so far have held everything I put on them (which is all HGs to be fair), I don't really have any complaints.
Are moderoid kits any good?Just bought this kit. What am I in for?Is it safe to preorder from BBTS?This obscure kit nobody gives a fuck about hasn't been reprinted in 50 years does anyone know where I can get it for MSRP?

I have a SAB chisel and I want to practice scribing on this HG GM Cold Districts Type. Anyone have any beginner tips for scribing?

are two pieces of pla plate properly glued with plastic cement functionally a single piece now or can they still be torn apart under enough stress?
>>21458752the entire kit is weak, so many sections have been broken within a span of 2 months, i'd be shocked if we don't see a full metal+pom replacement frame in a year or two to address this

>>21458752no. seedtards are just hamhanded morons
Newfag here, just recieved my first gunpla in the mail. I'd like to paint the entire kit (coming from a TT wargaming background, so painting is nothing new for me), however I'm unfamiliar with how gunpla assembly works in regards to painting/spray/basing prep while retaining maximum posability.Is it recommended to clip out, prep, spray and then paint up each individual piece of the model before assembly, or is it better to assemble the entire model, then spray and paint it in one go? Or something inbetween?
>>21459413assemble, to see which part is which and what colour you want it(not necessary). disassemble and then paint. Just mask the joints and pegs if youre afraid of losing posability
Does anyone here have experience making their own panel liner? I want to panel line a kit in metallic gold. Could I just get some metallic gold enamel and thin in down a lot?
>>21459413I generally go for somewhere in between, I build the whole thing first to get and idea of what color I want each part to be and what seam lines I need to fix etc. then break it down to paint. sometimes I end up with singe pieces and sometimes small assemblies
>>21459437I've never done panel lining with metallics, but I don't think it would turn out well due to how they work, the metallic flakes would also get very diluted if you did that. Maybe try fluorescent yellow or something?
>>21459437you could use a gold gundam marker lol
>>21459303What posseses people to do this to their kits?
>>21459454What is it?
>>21459530Consider Seed's fan base and how much overlap there is with the demographic that views expensive purchases as status symbols, then combine that with a slightly more fragile model kit.
>>21459530We call those ham hands.
>>21459538Hagoku no Mazinger
>>21459303>broken fingersLiteral hamhand wasn't paying attention to where pressure was being applied. Not a problem since the kit comes with fixed pose ones.>broken runnerNothing glue and paint can't fix. Another literal non-issue.>broken pegsAnother case of hamhands. Pegs don't break like that without stressing first. What likely happened was that the fit was too tight and the moron decided to bend the pieces in a way they didn't like.I've only ever had a peg snap on me once without warning and that is because the thing was fucking hollow.
>>21459558>the thing was fucking hollowreal shit?
>>21459552Doesn't Bandai have a kit of that already? Can't they sue Good Smile for using one of their designs?
>>21459561>Can't they sue Good Smile for using one of their designs?do you have brain problems
>>21458724I want to challenge this assertion.I have a Hazel II kit I'm working on right now that was originally released in September of 2006, but if the decade stamp works the way you claim that would mean that this kit would have been made in June of 2002.You could argue that the Hazel II is just a parts variant of the Hazel Custom, but that kit came out in September of 2005.
>>21459560Yeah. The piece was designed that way on purpose for some reason. Fucking baffling considering the kit is heavy enough to come with its own stand.
>>21459568That's pretty rock-solid anon. Guess I was wrong about the decade thing after all.
>>21459566I'm posting in this thread.
>>21459561Does bandai own it?
I've realized that lacquers are easy mode and people hate airbrushing acrylics because it requires a bit more skill. And then I realized these generals are full of brainlets and it all makes sense now why they're so anti acrylic.
>>21459607Who gives a shit what you use so long as you use it appropriately and it comes out with a good result.
>>21459572what kit, sounds fun
>>21459607i use lacquers because they smell niceno i'm not wearing your fucking stalker suit
>>21459607I paint with acrylic and lacquers, but given the option I'd rather use lacquers for gunpla. I have a sizable acrylic collection and use it to airbrush on miniatures and hand paint, they work just fine on gunpla but they're not the best tool for the job is all. The people who shit on you for using acrylics at all are just braindead

>>21456565Very recent finally found an Lfrith in the wild and put it together real quick, got an Aerial coming too. The Lfrith felt really simple? But this was also after a few MGs and an RG.
>>21459662most HG kits without a timeline tacked on to the name (unlike HGUC, HGFC, HGAC etc) tend to be a bit simplified. There are some exceptions, but they are usually designed to be a bit cheaper to drive sales during an airing series.
>>21459662HGs ARE very simple compared to MGs and RGs.
>>21459662Of course; it's a high grade.
>>21459662witch kits in particular seem to focus more on simplicity and decent quality rather than intricacy, much more so than HGUC
>>21459681Okay, was going to say it was simple even by HG standards. The waist was just four pieces want the had was five not tiny pieces.
>>21459699*While the head was five not tiny pieces. Phone autocorrections suck.
>>21459625Pic related. I'd show you the piece in question but my phone is refusing to download images from there ATM. The problem lies in how the hip is assembled. The hollow joint in the waist slides into a swing with a male joint on the other end that can also swing.So all that when combined with Koto tolerances led to it shearing as soon as I tried to move it.
>>21459106>>21459158Looking for a serious answer, I can't seem to find anything online.
>>21459706Forgot picture and dalong was autocorrected.Ended up cutting off some runner, sanding it down, pinned it, and then smeared it in whatever glue I could find.
>>21459713nigga the kit aint out yet, the legs look the same, so maybe. At the same time it's bandai so maybe not
>>21459106Only the AOZ version can use the Woundworts legs>>21459733Tf are you talking about it's been out for like a year now
>>21459740the conversion for the leg is not out yet
Is FM Vidar worth it? Or should I just get HG instead?
>>21459754like every other ibo suit, the FM is better than the HG.Buy it and mourn that Kimaris Vidar is probably never getting a 1/100
>>21459754It's pretty good for a relatively old non-grade, definitely better than the HG. The fact that all the spare blades are separate and usable pieces and that the pistols are also usable and not just molded into the front skirt automatically makes me like it more even though I've never actually taken advantage of either gimmick.
>>21459754fm has better hand options, more true to the original art, and less seams. But you have to deal with the FMs faggy cclips for the side skirts if you're test fitting, and lack of collar raise or swing out will make it less dynamic than the hg in certain poses. Still, its quite nice as a cope kit while waiting for inevitable mg
>>21459783oh wow now it's out and the magically also fit

>>21459859HGs are too simple and easy. I just get no satisfaction from building them.
>>21457079As long as RG Jet Alone doesn't exist, Bandai will not get a fucking cent from me for their Eva kits.

>>21459925>>21459934the normie option, the Unleashed RX-78-2
>>21458892Putty. By far the easiest option.>>21459868What about RGs?
>>21459953That's a nice one, anon, I love all the detailing on it. Are you gonna do some extra work or just snap it together, panel line, decals and topcoat?
What kind of topcoat do I need to apply over this kind of paint? It says not to use mr.super clear (which is the rattlecan one, I suppose) but can I use regular clear (C0-something-something) from regular range or GX112?
>>21459781better hand options except for the open palm, that is such a boring unexpressive open hand
>>21459960The recent RGs are about on par with MGs, and are thus satisfying.
>>21460094They're better than MGs in terms of details and gimmicks
>>21460096they're exactly the same in terms of both, just at a smaller scale.
>>21460094My only complaint about RGs is the faggy hand.
>>21460105the weird fists or the jointed ones from earlier kits?pretty sure both of those went away sometime around the RG unicorn
BBTS just sent out an email, they're getting their MGEX order soon.
>>21460098Yeah they're really not lmao
>>21460105I wish they had smaller MG hands, personally.
>>21460128Which ones? The hands in MG range from God tier to kill me tier.
>>21460130Ones like Sazabi Ver Ka had.
>>21460136Yeah, those are the God tier ones. Would be nice if all MG hands could be like those. Those things even hold things that weren't designed to attach them.
>>21460111The usual Advanced MS Joint hands. I haven't built a kit that was released after the Unicorn so I can't say.
>>21456565Found my primer. Tinted it yellow and primed all the yellow parts for The-O. Everything will be sand yellow (basically the same color as the primer) with some yellow ochre in spots for some color separation. The dark silver parts are primed and painted. The gun will go black with dark silver accents.
>>21460136sazabi's hands work thanks to their size more than anything. For anything smaller than above-average-size MGs I STRONGLY prefer static pose hands. Just give us the whole lineup of close fists/holding hands for each weapon/open palms for both sides and I'm happy. It's not exactly a lot of plastic and frankly it should be the standard for every kit no matter the line. Articulated hands can come as a bonus for rgs and mgs.
>>21460151>static pose handsThey need to be reworked to be stronger and hold more weight. Don't know about you, but for me half of them the gun and fingers will pop out before I can get the wrist into the arm. It just ends up as frustration.
>>21460125I'm sorry, but at this point RGs are just scaled down SEED MGs from ~2010
>>21460157I legitimately can't understand being this brain dead. Wow. Congratulations for the most retarded post of the new year
>>21460172you hate him because he speaks the truth
>>21460178If he spoke the truth I wouldn't have responded to him but its factually incorrect
>>21460144They're so close to resin color.
>>21460172they more or less use the exact same internal clamshell leg construction, shoulder construction and arm joint placement, and head design. only major differences are the torsos (RG adding pointless ab crunch whole getting rig of cool cockpits) and lack of polycaps.
>>21459942Thanks. Are there any good tips regarding sticker application?
>>21460217Throw them in the trash and buy waterslides.
>>21460218I doubt they make them for the EG Burgundam
I can't wait for my Big O to come. Been wanting a kit of him for so long. Also hoping they'll do more from the show as well.
>>21458752My nemo frame will make this look like a hobo.
>>21460219I haven't seen a decal set for it yet. The stickers for that kit are pretty big so you can hide them a little. Trim the decals with a really sharp cutter to get rid of as much clear area beyond the decal itself as you can before applying them. Anything going over a sharp bend or around an edge, use a straight edge and slice it at that bend after sticking it on and before top coating or it may try to lift even under a top coat.If you're worried about putting them on a bit crooked, spray the part with water and small amount of soap so you can slide the decal around, then roll a q-tip around to squeeze the water out from under the sticker.
>>21460267There is no clear around the EG American stickers. The design sits on a white sticker cut in the same shape as the shoulder.
This is how Bandai wants to be remembered. No robots. Ripping the parts off the runner with your teeth
>>21460267Thanks for the advice. Like the other anon said, there are only fully opaque stickers for the EG, but I'll remember that for future kits. I'll try the soapy water and q-tips though.
>>21460254My dream kit is the 1/72 The 0 full resin kit but i always cry when i look at the price.
>>21460291>718 burgersHahaha holy shit do resinfags actually think this is reasonable
>>21459470That'd be too yellow.>>21459487Didn't think of that, I might give it a shot.
>>21460299You should be able to just open up one of those gold markers and use a brush to apply it
>>21460291>1/72Go 1/48 or go home, waito piggu.
How do I stop Tamiya Accent from making my plastic brittle when panel lining?
>>21460321By putting some cum in it to reduce the acidity
any easy way to get 1/60 scale beam sabers?
>>21460322What if my cum is acidic due to the sheer volume of sodas I drink?
>>21460291I saw this and immediately tossed it in my cart without even thinking of the price. When I went to check out my brain finally kicked in. That thing is $1K in our maple syrup money.
>>21460291What a piece of shit, do resinfags really think this looks good?
>>21460340>do resinfags really think this looks good?Yes.
>>21460344I love you Dijehposter.
>>21460355Everybody has their own tastes. Yes yes how dare they, i know.
>>21460359Enjoy your schlock I guess.
>>21460360And enjoy yours.
>>21460359resinfags are mentally ill from all the resin dust and can no longer perceive shapes
>>21460363I mean most people who never touched resin and don't know a thing about gunpla would think a resin kit is better looking than a plastic kit.
>>21460370If you think anyone who doesn't know a thing about gunpla would find that utter mess of an O or other greeble coated nightmares of mobile suits appealing at all, you are off your gourd on resin dust.
>>21460321gloss coat before panel lining
>>21460291This doesn't even look like The O anymore
do you think it will be easier to find the re/100 mk-iii or it's p-bandai hg at a reasonable price?
HOW IS RE/100 ZAKU II KAI?DO YOU HAVE IT?DO YOU LIKE IT?
Here's an attempt at hand painting the green color of the battle rifle. It'll need another coat and the gun chrome details for the barrel and screws will need to go in. I cannot decided if it needs some flat black anywhere.
>>21460382no, out of protest that the fuckers dared to make it re/100 instead of a MG. it's an insult and I won't pay bandai for that.
Is it okay to submit multiple group build entries
>>21460402it's okay to submit

>>21460370does g system pay you to still for their horrible models?
Any one know which series they mixed in this series?
>>21460291>those twig armsWTF are those fucked up proportions? It's the same as if you put HG arms on a PG kit. Feet, torso and shoulders look terrible too, though intakes in front of ankle-feet armor look interesting but the rest of the design is just bad.
>>21460441On this pic all mechs are from Dougram>>21460445Here, mechs on the left side are from Macross, Dougram on the right.Btw some of Dougram kits are made by Max Factory but they are HG-sized kits with the engineering of kits from early 00's with a price of MG.
>>21460468Cool, thanks for the quick help.

>>21460513I love the missile pods. How'd you do yours?
>>21460598Those look mad.
>>21460598Nice. Taking these things apart was hell though.
>>21460291that really isn't too hot of a The O designthe chest shape is so boring and awkwardI have no clue what's going on with the top of the shouldershead and legs are neatno feet thrusters and the middle skirt thrusts being way too flush with the rest of the skirt makes it so dull. No clue why the skirt was flattened so much while the shoulders got a load of extra detail and sizeobligatory picture of the Solomon Express's The O
>>21460619You have piqued my interest.
Now make a Neo Zeong type companion unit for The O.
>>21460678I think the Kondo side stories had The O like a lot of mean looking feddy suits going to NeoZeonso stuff like Neo Geo/The O II. They might even be utilised by Char's NeoZeon if I'm not mistaken
also you got this deranged Delta/Shiki like Gundam that lives inside of a The O
>>21460685it also pulls off it's transformation to counter a Zeta-kamikaze. It's like poetry, it rhymes
>>21459967Probably just the second. I should search for some good topcoat spray tho
>>21460672You have lost my interest.
>>21460704>yf19_stickerI do not like where this is going
>>21460710it's a hg broyou should've realised it would be this way with those black stripes on the fingernail thin wings
>>21460710don't worry, they're not stickers, they're SUPER stickers!look at all this TECHNOLOGY! They have 5 layers in them!
>>21460734Even the 1/72 is a sticker fest
Is Bandai still doing that thing where they hide their release schedule so we don't know what we'll get or when?
>>21460738That's like a super stickers. A sticky if you will.>>21460700Is the Dijeh with us in the room now?
>>21460742Why would they not be?
>>21460285>girl plamoWhere to buy?
>>21460689I know only of 2 topcoats that most people use: Tamiya TS-80 Flat Clear Spray Matt and Mr.Hobby B-603 Mr.Premium TopCoat Flat Spray
>>21460751Not gonna mention mr. super clear?
>>21460745To stop the scalpers.
>>21460756I know of it, but people seem to prefer the Mr Premium more.
>>21460758The twist is that the scalpers are working for bandai and all this is one big complicated scheme to maximize profits somehow and make retards consume each new bandai release for fear of missing out
>>21460779Are you a cute anime girl?
>>21460738The fuck makes these stickers so super? I want to know I'm getting my five layers worth.
>>21460141The MG Hi-nu ver ka has em also, its pretty impressive engineering
>>21460738The new stickers bandai's been using in the PGU/MGEX line are pretty good though, if these are the same as those it's pretty cool. Well, potentially. I don't think such simple colour correcting stickers matter. Reflective stickers for sensors etc are very nice though.
>>21460782I'm a guy but I'm still cute though!
>>21460738But will it prevent them from peeling?
>>21460794You drive a hard bargain...
>>21460776Those that mean that Bandai also killed The O guy?
>>21460779Bro... How the fuck?
>>21460779this is what happens when you use panel liner without a gloss coat
>>21460813I will get the truth out there, Bandai. The O will be free and you will make a RG out it. Mark my wo
>>21460285good. As God intended.
>>21460738>5 layers5 times as thick as a regular sticker?
>>21460791>>21460810it was in storage for almost 2 years with the filter attached. i tried to remove it with pliers since it was stuck but i guess the air valve was rusted.>>21460814no its the second most expensive airbrush in my arsenal, its the gsi creos ps-771.oh well at least this is my motivation to finally splurge on a custom micron>>21460782>>21460817heh funneh
>>21460805If Bandai wanted repercussions for The O they'd have to go out and ice all the memelords who voted for it, internal did nothing wrong on it.
>>21460856>internal did nothing wrong on it.It was mocked on release because it was a fairly low effort model for the time, and obviously a design they'd worked out years beforehand. Not having 4 beam sabre blades was honestly a slap in the face, nevermind the dated engineering past that.
>>21460858That's because The O is a fucking brick of cheese in its design. Who could have guessed a mobile suit that chunky might have articulation problems?
>>21460859I didn't say anything about articulation.
>>21460863It's implied with terms like low effort and dated engineering.
>>21460864In your brain I guess, but there's also things like parts separation and the design of construction/seam lines etc. It could be a bit better on articulation, too, but it isn't really what I'm thinking of at all.
>>21460344all gay except the Dijeh which makes you a straight man with hair on your chest again
>>21460601cut pegs if you are planning to customize
>>21460826Rip, the Bandai ninjas got you before you could finish
>>21460779JB weld can fix this
For the anon who was curious about the snapped peg that was hollow. Here are the parts in question.Pegs in questions are on the top towards the right and the swinging joint along with the part that adds the double swing to the left. Not sure why Kotobukiya thought it would be okay to have a part that can go under so much stress be so fragile.
>>21460877Would a Efreet Custom cancel that again?>>21460883Guys, I made it out. The ninjas are after me. I finally got it. The truth. Bandai did not stopped producing The O. It is still being worked on. I saw the plans. The O will get a MG Ver.Ka and a RG soon enough. Even so, some internal forces are trying to shut it down. Let it be known that there are forces beyond Plamo hold this. I saw a shrine, made out plaplate and glue with some sort of red liquid and a lot of used exacto blades #11 covered on the liquid. This only points out to one culprit, and that is P–
Do Bandai reprint their old non-Gundam kits like this one?
>>21460913I don't know about that one, but some non-gundam things do. Some don't. One of my grails is the EX Falken kit, which hasn't been produced in a long time now.
>>21460904Efreet isn't gay just ugly
>>21460927Just like me...
>GP announced restocks for next week>Newtype restocked the same kits I wanted today for several dollars cheaper per kitAdd in them getting the Pharact today and it must be my birthday or something, everything's coming up Milhouse.
>>21460904idk I think I have to say yes the Efreet it cool because ive got two Efreet Nachts sitting behind me rn that I keep putting off on building/scalping
Fucking techno voyager went up for preorder. I guess it's fair since some people have been waiting like 40 years for this
>>21460799I hope not. The stickers that Bandai used for the 1/72 Macross kits is really bad and peel easily.
>>21460943>Pharact inthanks for the heads up. Finally.
>>21459821Since I am not getting it after all, here:https://animeimport.it/en/negozio/gunpla-asw-g-xx-gundam-vidar-2/Haven't actually ordered from there, but should be fine if you are eurobro.
WIP but the pockets/side skirt for the armor schneiders just want to pop off anytime you start articulating the legs, its awful
>>21460974>make an account>says password is incorrect>reset the password>no email comesThanks anyway, anon.
Do people only like The O because it was the final boss suit? I swear, it looks awful and all the attempts posted in this thread to make it look "cool" just fall flat.It's just a bad design.
>>21460950seems like a new moderoid preorder goes up every day, goddamn they showed off like 20+ CGI prototype announcements
Do you have to use a special lacquer clearcoat over lacquer paints? Also is it pretty much 100% safe to handle? and durable for holding/play?
>>21460997>SeedYou only have yourself to blame.
>>21461026what do you mean by play? are you hoping lacquer topcoat will be strong enough to turn painted kits into action figures?
>>21461031Lets say like, halfway to that point?>>21461033You implying what looks like an interior home varnish is as good as hobby grade stuff?
>>21461030i've had worse experiences with some UC MGs such as the Unicorn. that thing is a fucking brick
>>21460779nice selfie, nerd
>>21461046I knew anon was an air brush this whole time.
>>21461051it's a mirror selfie
>>21461000it's an acquired taste, you wouldn't get it until it happens
the RG God's arms are kind of a fucking pain, the lock-in twist doesn't want to work
>>21461000I find it an acquired taste design. I just don't care for it because i wasn't a big fan of Scirocco as a character
>>21461000Heavy armour but with huge mobility and a simple but effective armament list is rad, that's all there is to it. It's a unique villain design with a good style. Kondo's cool. I probably like the Pallas Athene and Titania more as Scirocco designs go, but it's still really cool.
>>21461074i remember i did something wrong with mine's arms, but i don't know what, so i had issues with posing the right arm and locking them into the shoulder armor
How fucked am I if I just don't bother topcoating over waterslides?I'm a snapshitter, but I enjoy panel lining and want to get into decaling, but I don't like having to topcoat shit. Assuming I don't fondle the kits like action figures: I assume the decals will stay on just fine with some mark setter?
>>21461115they'll stay on but obviously be prone to any damage from touching it etc.
>>21461115If you use only water chances are the decals will come off after some time, could be months, could be years. If you use mark setter/softer it won't come off unless you scratch them really hard>captcha: SS0YJK
>>21460291>take a suit known for it's smooth, beetle like design>cover it in fucking GreenleeJesus fuck whoever made that monstrosity needs to be sequestered from the rest of humanity so their shit taste doesn't spread.
>>21460285>LINKL PLANET カラーBandai shilling Bandai shills? >>21460747Some kind of giveaway for buying a ticket to HYPER PLAMO Fes.2023, apparently? There's also a 30MS Rishetta that's colored like the old G1 LINKL PLANET costumes.
>>21460285By what I have read this particular kit is just gonna be handed to attendies to build them in the expo to try to set a Guinness world record for the largest amount of people building a kit in the same place. So kinda makes the expo kit is one with a low parts cont and that doesn´t requre tools
>>21460788They're not, those are called "Metallic 3D stickers" from Bandai and these are just "special" regular stickers
>>21460414I'm building it right now anon. I'm a pretty new builder but I'm enjoying it. I haven't painted a model yet but this one almost 100% is going to need some. It'll also be my first time seamwelding. I'm about to build the lancer cannon tomorrow night which I'm excited for.What are you looking for specifically?
>>21460740Wait until you see the aoshima V.F.G kits
What's the difference between Mr color Super Metallic and GX metallic?
Has anyones used Ak interactive paints?A hobby shop near me recently started sellng them for like dirt cheap
>>21461362They are kinda like Tamiya Acrylic but thicker. Mixing across brands has been hit or miss.
>>21461354Mr Color GX is just high pigmentation and I'm pretty sure super metallic has really fine metal particles
>>21457376Check the previous thread.
>>21460788>>21461304It's seem like the same metalic thick sticker that came out recently from 30MM sethttps://youtu.be/pSkDrWvi9YM?t=965
>>21461354gx metallics have wacky colours like red and greensuper metallics are standard metallic colours like your greys and coppers
>>21460415>10% discountwow its fucking nothing
>>21461188Id only fuck 2 of these women
