No new pbandai drop?
Why does MGSD exist?
>>21749615Bandai makes new lines every once in a while so that people get excited for something new even if it's a kit of something they already have several of
Hey, it's me, Red Ducati model guy. /m/ voted that I should do the guntank. Well.... it's a slow go. So enjoy this corefighter I painted.
>>21749645>>21749651Did you have issues with the wings wanting to keep falling out?
>>21749654Fall out? No, one wing sagging, yes.
>>21749660>saggingThat's what I meant, it has been a while since I built it. Glad to see I'm not alone with that problem.
Does anyone use mr weathering hobby to panel line?
>>21749645rudder on the vertical stab should be whiteI'd personally do the gear and wheels white too (standard for NATO aircraft, as opposed to silver for Warsaw Pact) except for the actual hydraulic piston part ofc
>>21749681Why does that Aerial have a titans decal
>>21749684Titans are forever.
>>21749684Is the school logo
What sandpaper grits do you guys normally use when sanding off nubs?
>>2174969560 then I just do a 2000 to clean it up
>>21749691what the actual fuck>>21749695400 feels great for me
>>21749615if bandai was cool it'd be another re/100 situation where it could be like a shaft for certain mobile suits they wouldn't put in a regular line, there are plenty of mobile armors and fat mobile suits i think could still be represented in a satisfying way and use the scale to detail the insides up real hard or something
>>21749695600. 800 does nothing and 400 puts you at risk at damaging the piece.
>>21749615Its cool. I want more from my personal wishlist
>>21749603Whoops, forgot the image.
>>21749603I'm working on my first kit. I'm just snapshitting, but I did paint the figures. Compared to warhammer stuff, they're small and the detail is soft. The mobile suit itself is amazing, though.
Finally found a good article about baking POM joints so the paint doesn't just flake off. But basically:Spray with Tamiya Surface Primer.Bake at 120C for 20 minutes. Take some time to make sure your oven/toaster oven doesn't swing past 120C as 130C is when POM starts to deform. Strong base for painted joints get. Or melted garbage and a ruined kit.https://promodeler.net/2022/11/06/pomfire/
Is this worth buying?
>>21749753Just buy some makeup brush from the dollar store
>>21749744damn this is nice, nice colors>>21749715this, with MGSD there might be a slight chance they pop some obscure suits out, just imagine a fucking Rig Contio or something>>21749753seems like a ripoff to me
>>21749764>>21749757I got this for my proconboy. Did I buy well?
>>21749784>Not just sticking it in your dumping jar
>>21749799>not just sticking it into your dumper
>>21749684Because Eri's gonna gas all the spacian turds
>>21749757>>21749764>>21749753Makeup brushes do not work well at all for cleaning dust they end up generating more static electricity and attract it and it gets stuck on the kit. I bought that tamiya brush and it is way way better. Yeah its overpriced but I couldn't find any alternatives and it works really well. I use it when I paint as well to deter dust
Needed some non-standard stuff for a couple projects that I couldn't get from the usual model brands so I bought a couple cheap toy things from amazon. The umbrellas were perfect but the stuff I needed from the figure turned out to be too big due to being 1/6 scale so now I'm waiting on a cheap 1/12 scale equivelent.
>>21749821GOOD LORD HE'S NAKED! seriously wasn't expecting that. Also its a lot bigger than I expected even for being 1/6 scale.
>>21749799>dumping jarThat's what I call my butt
Went to the Odaiba gundam base store. They were shilling WFM hard. I didn't buy anything since their prices are super jacked up compared to places like Mandarake, Surugaya etc.. What really surprised me was the amount of female customers there. There were tons of them in the WFM aisle.
>>21749826Actually looks pretty neat with all the stuff on. Will make for a cool toy for my nephews whenever they come over. The main stuff I needed from it was the rifle for part of my group build, not to be held in the hands but as part of a shoulder cannon.
>>21749830These 2 were also there. If the racist old hag didn't continuously stare at me, I would have taken more photos of these cuties
>>21749830>What really surprised me was the amount of female customers there50% of gunpla store customers are teen girls (the other half is old men)
>>21749832>Literally creepshotting girls on a trainLetting in gaijin was a mistake, hope you got reported to the police
>>21749832What the fuck are you doing taking photos of random people on a train?
>>21749832>Taking creepshots of girls on the train.Your lucky you didn't get thrown out or a chat from the police over that.
>>21749846>>21749845>>21749836>Anon finally gets to go to Japan and immediately fucks it up
>>21749832Stop being a freak. Choose to be normal. Turn your life around
>>21749832>that girl on the right(ToT)
>>21749609No they restocked these instead
>>21749866>reprint amazing exia several times>don't reprint dark matter in yearsReeee etc.
So fucking tempting...sadly I don't have enough space in my suitcase
>>21749870>going to japan for gunpla >didn't bring an extra suitcase for a checked bag full of plamowwwwwwwww
>>21749872I'm probably going to buy another suitcase. Got like 70000 yen left to spend on toys and other shit
>>21749850It's perfectly normal for a straight guy to be attracted to young females. Cope
>>21749880Dude, taking pictures of random women you want to fuck on public transport is weird no matter how you try and spin it.
>>21749799That would be my toilet
>>21749832I love this place
>>21749836Is it illegal to take photos of people in public places in Japan? I do it on the subway here in NYC everyday not illegal here at all.
>>21749889You won't find entertainment like this on r/gunpla
>>21749832What the fuck are you doing my man
>>21749891In Japan? Depends on circumstances, it can be seen as harassment and can get you arrested if it's suspected you were doing something like OP and attempting to take creep shots of girls (or at least thrown out by security). Especially if it turns out they were underage. Don't use the lawless hellpit of the nyc subway as a standard for the rest of the world's public transport.
>>21749891It's not illegal per se but it's definitely fucking weird.
>>21749906>making laws up just to moralfag
>>21749891You can get away with literally pissing on people on the NYC subway don't act like you can compare it to anywhere else
>>21749891in most civilized parts of the world you would lose a couple teeth for doing it
>>21749832girl on the left was buying shit for her boyfriend (gave him fellatio that evening), girl on the right looks like she fucks fat ugly salarymen for money
>>21749891No, you're supposed to actually take pictures of their panties and blackmail them.

>>21749866Ehh. I already got what I wanted last month. Was hoping for something new.
>>21749832Gunpla/Stalking General - /gpg/
>>21749832this is why she's racist
>>21749832Thanks for posting this, I needed a good laugh.
>>21749951I'm going to go out on a limb and say the American occupation probably did more of a number to be honest.
>>21749955As long as you're a clean-cut white guy with no tatoos and not in the US military, you're "tolerated" pretty well. Cant speak for people of the negro persuasion though. They probably have it bit rougher.
>>21749866Nice. Was able to get an Eric Manthfield Zaku. For some reason it sold out in a handful of minutes last time.
>>21749674Yes. Works fine.
>>21749674Yes, its just an oil based wash/filter. If it comes out too thick to flow freely just mix a bit more enamel thinner into it.
>>21749971>>21749964I'm using a thin brush for it, I can't seem to get the perfect consistency; sometimes it's too much and sometimes it's not enough/too watery.
>>21749674yes, works just as well as tamiya

>>21749928The old hag was staring at me because I was a foreigner and not because of I was covertly taking pics of those 2 girls. I was holding my phone in a non suspicious way
>>21750005i really really love that you are so adamant with why this woman was staring at you more than anything
>>21749994Tell Florida and Texas to stop dumping them at our doorstep.
Imagine defending those xenophobic close minded Japanese boomers
>>21750017They learned not to. You'd be hard pressed to find one nowadays.The likelier answer is that OP is a creep or he looks really funny.
We need a complete shutdown of /gpg/ until we know what the hell is going on
>>21750005Kek you really think that old lady didn't know what your ass was doing? You're really lucky she didn't call you out and just stared you down, otherwise your trip would have ended a whole lot sooner.
>>21750017you are the kind of foreigner they are right about
>>21750005Anon, you deserved to receive the racism
>>21750021Only white expats do this shit

Are there any european shops that sell FSS kits? Or is importing my only option?
>>21749753I have that brush and it's worth it. Same with the paint stirrer to the left and the Mr Hobby stainless steel balls to the right of the brush. Kino products.
>>21750038didn't a haggi recently go on a sand chimp out at one of the temples? Whats going on in nippon?
>>21750041The official Volks site ships to Europe
>>21750084Yeah but that's shipping from Japan so you're paying just as much for shipping and importing as for the kit. Doesn't matter as much if you're buying one of the expensive resin kits of course.
>>21749932Decided to do the backpack too
>>21750094Did you fucking bleed on it
>>21750094Now wondering if someone's been psycho enough to mix some blood into their red paint on a gunpla.
>>21750096It happens more than you think
>>21750096Nah just wanted to do some crazy splatter paint on it, to compliment the knee braces that are similar style idk just having fun man :)
>>21750103based and funpilled, just watch out that you don't make the splatters too thick compared to the rest of the part
At the Kyoto shrine currently. So many highschoolers in the crowd. Will take as many photos as I can. Fuck you guys and fuck the old granny

>>21750115Gonna follow these 2 to get a good look at their faces
>>21750117idk anon not judging but you're just asking for trouble doing this shit>>21749932>>21750094looking good but you should get some alligator clips to hold your stuff and let it cure otherwise you'll just damage the paint
>>21749872>going to japan for gunplaThat's the dude that went to Nippon to buy a 1000x folded Airbrush you doofus.
>>21749830>ince their prices are super jacked up compared to places like Mandarake, Surugaya etc.what the fuck were you looking at? retail shit is at retail prices, the exclusive shit can easily go for 2x at Surugaya
>>21750114Special individuals like you make this place fun, keep being you.
>>21749601>Just use hi-polymer eraser to clean up panel lines broBe real with me bros, is this a meme? Or does it really work? I should specify I'm using fine tip Gundam markers
>>21749577>$530>entire paycheckWhere are you from, anon? >>21749832Don't phones in Japan make a sound when you take a picture? I think I read that somewhere, something about preventing idiots from being creeps and taking other people's pictures.

Poorfags are the biggest blight infesting this hobby.>Poorfags give shitty advice and promote subpar tools>Mostly snapshitters (which is bad by itself)>As soon as you try to have a conversation about some model kit, poorfags are going to make sure that whole internet knows they can't afford it - you are supposed to give attention to them and them only.>Poorfags lock multiple kits in their private warehouses for years because they want to save $5 on shipping. Meanwhile people with actual money can't buy these kits.Hope they get gassed.
>>21750017They are based for not buying into globohomo tr00n propaganda
>>21750241At least they can live rent free in your head so that's one less bill to pay
>>21750241HLJ doesn't have unlimited warehouse time anymore, stuff autoships after 60 days. Idk about other places though.
>>21750114Which shrine specifically, Yasaka Jinja?
>>21750237>not in Titans colors0/10
>>21750114you dual wielded phone and camera to take this photo?
>>21750256>even the promotional pictures are in Titans colours now
>>21750258The Titans will have the last laugh on the AEUG by becoming the only colour scheme choice across all mobile suits in all AUs.
>>21750261Are you sure? What about toyota racing colors?
>looking up some kits on Mandarake>says "package heavily damaged">literally only a scratch on two of the corners of the boxAre Japs autistic about this shit?
>>21750264Not everyone is a cuck satisfied with sloppy seconds.
>>21750269Hey, man, if Bandai ever decides to get off its collective asses and actually reprints the older 1/72 Macross kits, I'd buy them in a heartbeat if they're new. But as it is, I have to buy them second-hand.
>>21750270At this point I think we've got better chances of them getting back to those designs in the new HG Macross line.
>>21750261>full colour vision Literally gay>colour blindness Everything is Titans colours
>>21750252Kek. Nice one
>>21750271>new HG Macross lineNot a fan of the 1/100 size though, they're too small. And partsforming isn't my kind of thing either, but I get why Bandai would prefer that over making fully transformable model kits instead.
>>21750284For the plane form at least I found 1/100 to work better than I expected. Plus it's kind of neat having it in scale with my Gundam MGs, though that's not a priority. Battleroid and gerwalk ends up a little small if that's what you're after most of the time though, yeah. Works out similar to a standard Gundam 1/144 HG.As for partsforming I think I'll take it over the compromises inherent to making these designs work from an engineering standpoint. I know it can be done but in terms of an actual model of the design for display I think the compromise is ultimately the better option.This is all based on just the YF-19 kit though, my tune might change once we've seen more of what they've got cooking.

>>21749866>another tallgeese III re-release>still no tallgeese III know it won't sell because it's just a stupid recolor of the tallgeese with a new head, but just re-release it so I can have all 3 tallgooses, bandai. DO IT
>>21750117DO NOT do this shit, you don't want to end up in a japanese prison.
>>21749832nice CLEAN newbalances
Just curious about something: how much money has that Dalong guy spent so far on all the kits he's showcasing on his site?
>>21750335he gets supplied doesnt he
>>21750335dalong is one of the executives of bandai's korea branch, he gets them for free
>>21750348Really? I had no idea.
>>21750348>The gunpla community's biggest hero is also a bamco employeeHuh.
>>21750352>>21750354now don't you go saying the hobby mafia's never done anything for youi made it up i don't think he is involved with them
>>21750360For your crimes, you are hereby sentenced to only buy model kits from AliExpress forever.
>>21750360You son of a bitch I almost liked something about anything to do with Bandai for a moment.
>>21749832Big Guffy energy from the guy on the left.
>>21749681Chances of this being pbandit?
>>21750412pretty unlikely I think. It's been a while since we had new Witch kits announced and it would look awkward if it's just the Gundnode announced by itself now
>>21750361Was this painted with metallic colors or clear colors over a metallic?
>>21750124Eh this is more experiment than anything but 100% it was difficult having to do each side separate waiting for 3 hours just to flip it like a pancake lol
>>21749919This is the funniest post in the thread so confirmed
>>21749748just use metal primer>>21750088have you seen european store prices for anything non-bandai? it'd be no cheaper domestically, in fact it would probably cost more than just importing. every store in europe scalps the fuck out of anything non-bandai, you'd have to be dumb to buy non-bandai from them>>21750253no it doesn't lol, they still hold it for a year or two before autorefunding and never do autoship
>>21750348>Jannies >Dalong >They both do it for free Hmmmm
>>21750450>have you seen european store prices for anything non-bandai? it'd be no cheaper domestically>60-70 euros for the kit>50 euros shipping>25 euros VAT>15 euros import feesI don't think anybody would try to sell a 1/144 FSS kit for 150+ euros.
>>21750452lol. they go for 100$ in america, they would definitely be €150 in europe. have you seen koto kit prices? a €70 koto kit goes for €150 from eu stores

>>21749162>>21749177are these wsc kits resin? i'll have to see if e2046 have any of them, the proportions blow volks' modern stuff out of the water
>>21750479>are these wsc kits resin?Yes but the original casts are near impossible to find since the company is defunct and recasts are molded from other bootleg recasts meaning the they're shit.
>>21749601Any model kits with dual pistols?
>>21750489Gundam Astrea does, but only if you get the full weapon set version from peebandai
>>21750489Gundam The End>>21750492or just the HG kit, though only Type F. Normal white Astraea comes with diddly shit
>>21750492Those are just Dynames' pistols
>>21750489Dynames, Cherudim (and the variants) and Zabanya should.Zabanya should have 10 (14 for the PB Final Battle version), but Bandai cut corners with the bits.Vidar
>>21749959>a clean-cut white guy with no tatoosStop projecting. This is just the type of guy YOU'RE attracted to.
>>217504571/144 volks kits are 50 bucks in the USA.
>>21750489MG Testament gundam
>>21750512And I have my doubts that the cost + shipping for one of those kits from Japan would somehow add up to 150.
>>21750489GM Sniper K9 and Kampfer Amazing
>>21750516Depends on the kit. I had to pay 100 for the new LED Mirage V3 preorder with VAT + import fees included. Same kit is $66 on the US store but I don't know what their shipping fees are like.
>>21750522>US store>shipping feesLol just walk to their store in LA and pick it up for free

>>21750533Yes those do look like they were painted with craft acrylics for middleschoolers
>>21750534Its the white privilege tax. And no, you're not really white if your property is worth less than 950k. You're just lightskinned at best.
>>21750534>10% sales taxNot that uncommon.
>>21750533I find so weird when people panel line everything but decals. If panel lines are supposed to be where dirt, oils, etc get stuck plus exaggeration of shadows on crevices, why would that disappear if there're logos or faction signs?
>>21750548personally I just don't care what panel lines are "supposed" to be, to me they're just highlighting details. And highlighting them over decals looks bad.
>>21750544Maybe in yurop

Is the 1/144 IMS Bang Doll a good choice for a first FSS kit?
>>21750570If you can get it cheap, yes, it's much better than the original 1/100.

What's the best Hasegawa Macross model kit?
>>21750570The upcoming 1/144 LED is way better since you can actually snapshit it.
>>21750661I've got a pin vise and I'm not afraid of a little Tamiya extra thin
>Full mechanics ariel 40% off on amazongundam....is finished...
>>21749645>>21749651Very fucking clean
You like Star Wars, /gpg/?
>>21750570>>21750661God I love FSS designs so much but I'm scared that I'm not good enough for them yet. It doesn't help that they look constantly angry like they're too good for this world and everything is beneath them.
Is it normal to take 1.5 hours to put 28 individual waterslide decals on a single arm + pauldron of the HG Darilbalde or am I just slow and bad at this
>>21750669>40% off>still almost 2x MSRPNever change, scalpers
>>21750682if anything that's above average speed
>>21750610that fucks with PS right? Would I need to use primer on the piece? I usually just get away with flat topcoat before paint.
>>21750692Lacquer only fucks with PS if you absolutely soak PS in thinner; most people here exclusively paint with lacquers because they're the easiest to use
>>21750669>>21750685actual blunder on Bandai's part. they released Aerial too late and when WFM is on the second cour. and also the same month when Zeta ver Ka released. the kit is having lukewarm receptions, I mean when Zeta ver Ka released here, it was all gone in 2 days and right now still seeing stacks of Aerial.also IBO has its FM 1/100 Barbatos released around the same time the anime launched. with FM Aerial releasing when there is a rebuild being shown in anime, it does take the momentum off.Bandai is full of stupid as usual
>>21749601Has anyone tried putting lights inside a 1/144 kit?
>>21750698Why did Zeta Ver Ka even sell so well, it's a really mediocre kit
>>21750710because it's the best zeta kit yet
>>21750710That begs the question, is it actually mediocre? The answer: no
>>21750682>28 decals on a single arm and shoulder pieceSeems excessive.
>>21750712>>21750717Katoki had one job (make an anime accurate Zeta) and he fucked it up, just because you can fix his bullshit doesn't make it not a bad design out of the box (which is what dictates the quality of a kit, you can theoretically make any kit great with enough work)
>>21750723No, what makes a good kit is the ease to paint and the articulation. OoB appearance is totally subjective.
>>21750710massive improvement on Zeta 2.0, better articulation and very sharp looks, better parts/color separation, ankles are better compared to the Zeta 2.0 grenade.while it is missing the hyper mega launcher and the launch base, you can buy the launch pad separately and most people wasnt bothered by lack of hyper mega launcher (i meant it was missing from the RG and the PG)
>>21750726Articulation is almost entirely irrelevant beyond a certain point, but if the surface detail is ugly and requires you to fix it yourself then that's a point against the kit>subjectiveNot when the entire point was to make it look like the TV show
>>21750731I don't think it's ugly though. Also no one fucking cares what the "point" was as long as they like how it looks.
>>21750723looks like the show to me. cexcept for the stupid blade things on the chest i guess
Someone post the Zeta with a bajillion panel lines.
>>21750731why don't you just buy the 1980's kits then, they're the most anime accurate kits ever.
>>21750739You have to fill in a whole bunch of holes in the armor that aren't present on the original design
>>21750739and the wings in waverider mode
>>21750744nta but personally I have no problem with kits diverging from the original design, at least within reasonbut with the Z ver Ka he outright said he wanted to make it as anime accurate as possible and it's just... not. By itself I wouldn't really have a problem with that either, if simply because I don't care much for Zeta, but the ver Ka is just the right mix of keeping the bad and throwing out the good. For me 2.0 and HG Revive are the best Zeta kits and will likely remain so for a long, long time.
>>21750739Proportions got Katoki'd
>>21750770Katoki is a hack, he didnt follow the panel lines and surface detail of this screenshot
Anyone know where I can find those custom looking action bases, like Amuro Ray's, Sinanju and Char Aznable's without getting extremely price gouged for it?
>>21750776His name was Sinanju the whole time?
>>21750780I honestly forgot his name, I don't really care about humans in mecha media, I only remember things about the mechas themselves.
>>21750788Unlike most mecha anime, Unicorn is about the robots, so you're okay.
Moderoid God Gravion was a fun build, if a little inconsistent with how the pre-applied paint was done; but I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoyed the RG GaoGaiGar.
If FSS and Gaianotes are both sooo great why isn't there an FSS gaianotes paint line?
>>21750819Because Born Paint is even better and they do have a FSS paint line
Are there any quality paint brands that are available in the EU other than Mr. Color?
Is there a difference between mr leveling thinner and gaia pro retarder? Is one better than the other?
>>21750837>>21750838Doctors recommend Mr Color.>>21750844He asked for quality.
>>21750838Levelling thinner because it doesn't insult you
>>21750844Sorry, I should have been more specific. Quality lacquer paint. I know Vallejo's great for miniatures but I'd rather not airbrush an entire model kit with it, or try shading small parts through a .15 nozzle with it.
>>21750838>gaianotes' thinner essentially calls you a slur for being a good goy and purchasing an inferior product to Mr Leveling ThinnerMr Hobby/Color anything > Redditnotes
>>21750887so i'm uk not eu but i assume most of what you can get here you can get there. alclad, tamiya, mr paint, ak real colour are definitely all available at least online. sms i think i heard you don't have for some reason. jumpwind and hobbymio are available from china via aliexpress
>>21749603I can rebuild her, I have the technology
>>21750887>>21750900Do note though that while you have some options they'll pretty much all be noticeably inferior to the high end japanese hobby paints in the quality and richness of their pigments. I'd recommend importing paint via sea mail instead of relying on the local crap.
>>21750489My Gundam justice Seed y'all hated does lol the wings on the shoulder braces double as dual wield blasters Seed wins again baby
>>21750913>>21750887ignore redditnotes shills, the stuff i listed is fine
I have a bunch of unbuilt plamo from my backlog that I want to sell, because I'm moving and just don't build like I used to. Where is the best place to list these, eBay? It's most RG UC and Evas.
>>21750936Yeah, ebay is usually the best place.
>>21750909>pink nipplesconfirmed white
>>21750938I understand. Hopefully it goes better than the time I sold a handful of Nendos and pretty much every single buyer gave me grief, tried to refund, or just straight up didn't pay.
>>21750949There are limited options :(We don't have yahoo auctions like the Japanese do. We don't have mandarake (they probably don't even pay a lot for the kits they resell but no idea), you can try craigs list, offerup etc but then your hits will be low or who knows what trash you'll get responding to you. Etsy maybe?
>>21750954I see. eBay is probably my best bet, but I wasn't sure if there was a Discord or subleddit or someplace where people reliably sell and swap P2P.
>>21750958register as an amazon seller, that's where all the retards flock so you can scalp your shit easily
>>21750963Dawg liked 4chan generals so much he tried to make a 4chan general inside a 4chan general.>>21750970Holy shot that's actually a great idea. I'll look into that.

>>21750991anon what the fuck are you doing
>>21750996>he actually fixed the links
>>21750744Nah, the proportions are all off and the details tend to be too soft. You've got to do a lot of modelling to get them to actually look like the artwork
>>21751010Head not tiny enough
>>21750963I don't know what's sadder: that you have so many threads open that you can't keep track of them, the fact that you play AA, or the fact that you actually create threads for AA.
Boys I'm scared I sprayed yesterday and it was real humid cause of the last night's rainstorm and it's been 12 hours and my parts are still a little tacky What do bois am I FUKT?? I know that I should have researched more before I sprayed but I just kinda wanted to say fuck it but now I feel like I'm fuckedWould a clear coat save me still or is it too late
>>21749603Working on HG Zeta 0088. Need some final touch ups, decals and final coat for the head and torso.
>>21751048thats a pretty nice head sculpt
>>21751048Peak 2000s Dalongcore
>>21750698>the kit is having lukewarm receptionsWhat the fuck are you talking about?
>>21751041Scratch that now that the suns hitting em they are baking perfectly There's definitely some pieces that got waaaay to thick of a coat but I'm liking it bois, this is coming together and looking really sick Gonna build and probably post results tonight but the color separation on the face looks fucking AWESOME
Do FSS kits have a color guide? Wanna get the bang
>>21751067Yeah, usually one for Mr. Color + Gaia and one for Vallejo depending on your receptiveness to lacquer fumes
>>21750975Nah. He frequents other boards and makes this mistake pretty often. I've seen this on /a/ and /v/ as well
How come nobody has tried selling Gaia in Europe before anyway? It's not like it's an obscure brand or anything, and even shit like GPaint had EU distributors.
So my family bought a handful of Tamiya paints for my birthday. Several small jars of X and XF paints. I looked it up and turns out the difference is the X paint is a glossy finish and the XF paint is supposed to be more of a matte finish. I've never painted a kit before but considering you finish it off with a matte topcoat when you're completely done with the kit, does it matter if you use the glossy X paint or the XF matte paint? Also are Tamiya paints any good or is there a better brand? I'm brush painting if it makes any difference since I don't have the cash to get a airbrush setup.
>>21751134If you cannot get Gaianotes in your country, chances are you live in a third world shithole. Simple as.
>>21751143Have you tried growing a braincell or two?
>>21751143It does not matter because your final topcoat is going to affect how it turns out anyway. If you use gloss, it'll end up as gloss, flat matte will end up as flat matte.
>>21751041>>21751066just leave them alone to dry like for a day or so, acrylics take longer to cure so don't rush it
>>21751143>does it matter if you use the glossy X paint or the XF matte paintIt does not. What matters is the topcoat you plan on finish with in the end.>Also are Tamiya paints any good or is there a better brandTamiya's lacquers are pretty good, their enamels are good too and are fantastic for handpainting details.
>>21751157Hey fuck you man
This has to be an elaborated shitpost.https://youtu.be/UMYeXwyIuSk
>>21751169I left em out in the sun all morning and they FINALLY cured after like 24 hours of drying but bois....it's done and it looks fucking amazing this is my first time customizing the paint and MAN OH MANI love it more than all my kits combined I can see why y'all like to paint so much this shit is fucking RAD. >inb4 tranny colors
>>21751214The only funny thing that came from these threads in a long while (aside from my posts)
>HG SEAd Strike Gundam released in November 2002>HGCE Aile Strike Gundam released in February 2014>HG 00 Gundam Exia released in October 2007>No HGAD Gundam Exia yetYou know an old HG aged like fine wine when the RG's articulation isn't much better. Thin your paints, snapshitters!
>>21751134Are there even any shops left that ship Gaianotes internationally? Sealmodel apparently has absurd wait times now.
>>21751243Pics with the gun, lost the jewel on the crown when I built this kit the first time so thinking about fabbing something up out of runner pieces or something but I really like how this all turned outJust need some decals now
>>21751258Is this the actual orange peel that I hear about so frequently?
>>21751263It's spray paint not hobby paint, it was a $9 kit so I just wanted to try it out and see if I could get decent results with it
>>21751251>aged like fine wineanon solid white beam sabers were 5 years outdated by the time Exia came out
>>21751243>>21751258>trans rights RX-78-2Um, based!
So if I want a semigloss topcoat do I just do 50-50 matte/gloss? The gloss is GX 100 clear and the matte is GX 114 matte
>>21751243This is huge for us
>>21751271What, like Krylon rattle cans, because you're a fucking idiot if so.
>>21751277Then what's HGAD Exia taking so long?
>>21751303HG releases are generally rather slow nowadays, and they might be thinking they have enough sub-lines going on at the moment with HGAC and HGCE (plus HGFC via p-bandai and lmao rip HGAW). There's not many Wing suits left unless they go for EW designs too, but even then there's not many options. However Seed is still probably due quite a few kits and they'd rather not start up HGAD right now too.
>>21751309There was also an HGUC drought coinciding with the HG IBO line's release schedule between 2015 and 2016. HGUC droughts seem to coincide with release schedules of HG lines for Bandai's latest Gundam animu, such as what is happening now with HG WFM.
How long till the MG FAZZ gets his new plutonic life partner?
>>21751309>unless they go for EW designs tooDo you genuinely believe Bandai ISN'T going to go for the EW designs?
>>21751320plutonic (adj.): relating to or denoting igneous rock formed by solidification at considerable depth beneath the earth's surface; relating to the underworld or the god Pluto
>>21751306You're fucking retarded. It's in stock for half the price at Volks USA.
>>21751324i mean, they haven't gone for the TV designs at all for MGs except for Wing so shit's unpredictable
>>21751329You think I'd be considering ebay if I could get the paints from volks USA? International shipping is the whole problem.
>>21751332Give them a little bit of time. Little effort work with full payout is Bandai's favorite thing.
>>21751335Bro use sealmodel. I'm a frog and this what I use for gaia paints . Warning, it's slow as fuck.
>>21751338They have barely any stock anymore and apparently their wait times have become unbearably long. Like I'd at least still want to see my paints this year.
>>21751341doctors recommend mr color anyway
>>21751300Some Rust-Oleum cans I had lying around, it was a $9 kit that I didn't like and was considering trashing anyways so yeah fuck it lol
>>21751327Why don’t you just try being dyslexic instead of correcting my English
>>21751299>>21751284These comments made me kek ngl
Now that I think of if, HGAC just has Tallgeese, Epyon, and maybe Altron left to tackle before going full P-Bandai like HGFC. HGAD will have to wait till MG-Self
>>21751160>>21751198Thank you. I'll give it a go and see how it turns out.
>>21751356after Deathscythe Hell Altron is also guaranteed p-bandai, and Taurus&Virgo aren't looking any better.Tallgeese and Epyon are really all that's left
>>21751347>I enjoy wasting money!Cool story bro.
>>21751360I'm sorry but if Mercurius & Vayaete were P-Bandai Virgo doesn't have a shot in hell at being retail. It'll be easier if you accept it now before it happens.
>>21751379Virgo doesn't have a shot in hell of being made by Bandai.
>>21751303HGAD will probably happen within the next 5 years, I'm guessing 2027 for the 20th anniversary of 00.
>>21751379probably true, but there have been downright bizarre choices before
>>21750660All of them but the 1/72 Valks in jet mode since the unsightly leg droop (easy to fix but looks dumb unless super packs)
>>21751369Not a waste if it looks good to me and looks good on my shelf that admittedly needs dusted
>>21751393You jsut made the bigest distake of your life duge...
Anyone here ordered anything from Kurama Toys? They have the HGUC 1/144 Qubeley Mk-II (Ple-Two Custom) in stock and I want to get it to complete my trio of HG Qubeleys.
>>21751396the bazooka is an odd choice but I should have known, adding a bazooka makes everything better. Doesn't look as small as I expected it to either.Still not really a fan of Naoki's style tho
>>21751397>>21751400Why does Naoki get so much shit anyway?
>>21751396Kuramatoys is shady as fuck. Yes he will ship your order but he is dishonest with his prices. He literally ALWAYS says 'oh shipping is gonna cost more than we thought, pls send another $50' and if you don't he will make it ridiculously difficult to get your money back.
>>21751396Don't buy from anywhere with toys in the name.
>>21751405A lot of panel line wars lately + he represents the stagnation of the re/100 and MG line >new MG>it’s just an old kit that got naoki’d
>>21751406>>21751410Cheers, anons, I'll look elsewhere then.
>>21749683Can you post your core fighter?
>>21751411Also he's gay
>>21751107Nice. Anyone have the manual for this one? I can't find it online. Want to have my paints prepped
>>21751396He's a greedy lying fuck. DO NOT BUY FROM THEM. Had to do a chargeback, first time ever.>>21751410Galactic Toys is fantastic. And big bad toy store is okay as long as you order something that's in stock
>>21751406>pls send another $50Is he based in California? it seems he has an ebay account where he tries to pull the same shit.>>21751438Seconding both of those. BBTS is shady for pulling an HLJ but they deliver exceptionally if it's in stock.
>>21751320Probably at least 3 years if we take the time it took from the ZZ to the FAZZ. I'm still confused at why Bandai hasn't released the Full Armor ZZ yet,
>>21751444>Full Armor ZZDejavu with this post.
>>21749866>no hazel variant restocksuffering
>>21751445FAZZ =! Full Armor ZZ Gundamthough as far as the model kits go they'd only need to change colors and add 1/60 beam saber effect parts back, probably throw out the big cannon runners
what are some great 1/144 zeek kits if I want a ton of accessories, other than dom tropen, kampfer and doven wolf?
>>21751460Any Origin kits
>>21751458Yes, I know. If you're the same anon we already have had this conversation. What a coincidence it's happening on a Saturday again. I'm not drunk yet so not full dejavu yet.
>>21751473ah, I see. I don't believe I talked about this here before so it was another anon
I want to talk about the RG Hi-Nu's disproportionately small waist again
>>21751309>There's not many Wing suits left unless they go for EW designs too, but even then there's not many options.They even made the G-Unit suits already, though IIRC, they're all PB.Looking forward to HGAC EW including the non-upgraded versions, and hopefully we'll also get HGAC Hydra.
>>21751481If you're wondering, that last part you need for the main blue color for the body is Zoukei-Mura Blue Shine Pearl Powder. Volks sells it. You mix it with clear and spray it over your paintjob.
>>21751515Griepe, Hydra and Burnlapius all could get kits. Taurus really shouldn't be so unlikely as an HGAC either
>>21750770I’ve been having a perfect day anon. A perfect day. I woke up and looked at my seamless wall, turned off my seamless alarm clock, and opened my eyes to a beautiful world with no panel lines. I turned on my phone and informed my wife that I would indeed be divorcing her, because her vagina reminds me too much of a panel line and I indeed cannot maintain an erection around such things. Then, I made the mistake of opening this thread. I enjoyed it for the most part. I love my autistic brothers in arms. But then I saw this fucking picture. I opened it and quickly could no longer see it (a small mercy from a loving god) due to my tears filling my phone screen. I may very well never mentally recover from this disgusting image you have posted, anon. I hope you burn in hell, and I hope it has no seams for even a place of eternal torture does not deserve panel lining like that.
>>21751515god I hope we get Hydra soon. Been a while since they announced a g-unit kit
Please Bandai. I want an official one not my resin one.
>>21751524>TaurusI could totally see Bandai doing OZ colors for retail, and Sanc Kingdom colors as PB. Then maybe pic related as TGBL/Side-F.How many parts would they be able to reuse from extant HGAC kits, though, and how would the transformation be handled?IMO, HGAC Virgo/Ⅱ would be more likely, since they can recycle parts from the extant Mercurius and Vayeate kits.
Bros..... I think I'm in love......If the Gyan in my backlog is as fun to build/look at as this fella was I'm gonna be buying a lot more revive kits.What's you guys favourite HG kits?

>>21751596titans ver gets a few more parts for the test type variant. IIRC bigger shoulder and leg thrusters
>>21751596Titans version has alternate leg vents to choose between
>>21751549Basically no reused parts.>Virgo/IIThey can't really reuse a ton here either. A few though. The mark against them, and in favour of the Taurus, is that an important character actually pilots a Taurus. And it was popular enough/otherwise chosen to have gotten the LM release with Leo back when too. No other MP's more likely than it.
>>21751521Thats interesting thanks. Have any pics of what that looks like after applied? Never heard of something like that
I'm definitely addicted to this shit. I've replaced what I used to spend on video games and gacha cancer with model kits and paints and have increased that spending 3x. Dont even have space to display my stuff anymore but I just keep building like a damn robot
>>21751624Build my butt dude
>>21751624>I just keep building like a damn robotKek
>>21751431The more WSChad kits I see the more I start to hate Volks
>>21751637? One is just making GTMified designs while the other isn't, subjective preference doesn't make Volks kits bad
>>21751624So you swapped two wastes of time with one gigantic waste of time. Gatchu
>>21751652Yes bettering myself here. What have you done for yourself?
>>21751637i really like these but out of respect for my dog we have to breathe all the same air so if i inhale the resin dust so does she :(

I'm not missing any news for the kotobukiya armored core models right? They still only just confirmed they're doing ac6 models? And we are srill awaiting those poll results for reprints.
>>21751797you're up to date
What's the point of painting anything if you're just blasting original clown colors at 50 psi?
are there any particularly good jumping on pts for resin mortar headds?
>>21750352I really like this. I know it's the haze'n-thley ii-rah with some custom scribing and paint but how did they source the hip boosters? Looks sleek
>>2175181799% sure its hg full armor unicorn
>>21751816You're probably looking at recasts because finding original casts is going to be difficult and expensiveA recast will probably run you about $80-150 depending on the kit (assuming we're sticking to MHs and not getting into the 1/72 GTM kits), you'll probably want to stick to recasts of Volks kits because anything older is likely to be a recast of a recast of a recast or gone through significant mold degradation and will require quite a bit of detail restoration on your part
>>21751861Unicorn's greatest contribution was giving us these humongous tanks
>sold outHoly shit
>>21751881Also stay the fuck away from e2046.
>>21751936E2046 is alright if you can rescribe details and don't mind shaving away excess flush
>>21751881>recasts of Volks kitsRecasts of their newer kits I mean, the stuff they still actively sell or at least did so recently. Their SAV line and such. Not some shit from 1999.>>21751949Any kit's theoretically alright if you're a good enough modeler to make up its shortcomings but he asked for a jumping on point, and a kit that requires you to resculpt half the details yourself isn't that.
Here's my first attempt at hand painting with tamiya enamel. Didn't think leveling Thinner would work so well. Unfortunately I gave up on improving/fixing the surface of the cannon. All I need to do now is mask and paint the black Launcher Strike Green
Eclipse and Aile Strike MS come in tomorrow. Which one should I build first?
How much holding Strength do MS and Perfect grade have? I want to make a few to set up a diorama with them either loading a mini cannon or holding actual bullet. Like they are in the process of loading or cleaning equipment.
>>21751913>>21751936Just how bad are e2046 recast? I want this but didn't wanna pay $300 for it. $85 seems a lot more reasonable but how much work am I going to have to put in to make it look presentable?
>>21751881>>21751936>>21751967thank you bro, if e2046 is unreliable while im lacking on skills where would i head?
>>217520955.7 to single hand grip and 308 over shoulder?
>>21752150GK-MThey are much better but more expensive. You won't have to rescribe anything.
>>21752164How are they when it comes to clear parts? Dull or cloudy looking clear parts are terrible on GTM designs and also something you can't really fix.
>>21752159I'm not familiar with 5.7 but 308 may be hard to deal with. Have you considered removing the powder inside first?
>>21752175Both e2046 and GK-M recast clear parts perfectly. I've never gotten any cloudy resin from either of them.
>>21752182I have some left over brass. The MS or PF should be able to empty brass case. pic related for size comparison. Could a 1/100 be able to hold the smaller one?
>>21752220Well part of the problem lies in how you'll get the hands to actually hold. I walked over to my shit and was feeling out the weight of 7.62x51 which is why I suggested to empty it out. Over the shoulder with the 308 should be fine if you can figure out the balance but with nothing to grip on to you won't get the 5.7 working unless you glue or fake it by supporting it from below. >PG or MGWhat kits were you thinking of in particular by the way?
>>21752237these are the kits i have coming in >>21752045 . Not sure where Ill go from there once those two are built. Though Getting an MG Leo or Zaku might fit the tone better. Open to suggestions on that end.
>>21752252>MG LeoDoesn't exist. Eclipse doesn't fit and wouldn't scale with real ammo unless you want to go full autism and make some bigass cannon.
>>21752269Im buying a house and turning one of the spare bedroom into a gun/gunpla (and minature) room so Im just trying spitball some ideas how to split the room. Probaly gonna be a six month process. Already have the guns I want to display built now I just need to finish the gunpla and find a good display case. Pic related is one of the rifles i redid want to display
For me it's the Efreet
>>21752252>eclipse >zaku >Leo Maybe the guncannon detector or the old GM sniper?
>>21752324Why’d you skip on the best efreet?
>>21752322I would tell you to find a wood pistol grip but I don't think you can any longer.
>>21752334Some guy makes them but there honestly middle of the road. The surpluss stock grip and the handguard was ~$175 pre covid and that was a "deal" at the time.
Why didn’t anyone tell me about the 1/60 scale Rick Dom?
>>21752355You didn't ask.
Going to get my first fss kit. Do I need any extra tools? I understand its not going to be a snapfit but I'm not sure if I need any extra tools for it
>>21752373>extra toolsLike what??
>>21752373Get a blowtorch and a belt sander
I like the GM sniper, but I really hate the rifle it has. It's a very silly looking rifle for a mobile suit.
>>21752382I have 4 different kinds of sanders already. No blowtorch tho
>>21752327It never went up on the US P-Bandai store
>>21752386It's just a scaled up version of the L96A1 innit?
>>21752373Just some thin plastic cement, a sharp hobby knife for the hard to reach nubs and a screwdriver for the few kits that need screws (only for the waist joint usually)
>>21752423Cool thank you
I hear people say mr finishing surfacer 1500 isn't a real primer. I'm guessing that's true for nazca mechanical surfacer as well then?
>>21752373Oh and is there a difference quality wise between volks 1/144 and 1/100 kits? It seems like there's more 1/100 kits so if I end up liking them a lot and want more I would be limited if I wanted to keep them in scale
>>21752123>>21752150bros I got a couple of Aura Battler recasts off e2046 recently, they're using new material and the kits look sharp as fuck
>>21752456You CAN use mr.surfacer as primer Nascar surfacers are actual primer so they adhere easier and are more durable
Man Daban really blew bandai out with this one. I know its a copy of bandais metal structure nu but if bandai ever releases a pg nu its never going to look this good
>>21752533The PGU Nu is probably going to look much cooler than this. It's probably gonna be a plastic version of the Metal Structure
>>21752533>good>riddled with unicorn shitsomething isn't adding up
>>21752541That's not something to aspire to.
>>21752541But this is already a plastic version of the metal structure....
>>21752326Gun Cannon might fit the bill
>>21752533I can understand one Nu kit having psycho frame BS everywhere as a silly gimmick but did that make people think that that's canonical? Is this just what Nu is to people now?
>>21752611>i can understand one kit... but TWO?
>>21752617Once is a fluke, twice is a coincidence, three times is a pattern. But you and I both know there's no such thing as a coincidence.
>>21752611>Katoki's best selling design is unicorn>Him putting unicorn elements in the nu is somehow inexplicableGlowy things sell well anon, hate to break it to you
>>21752629You made me realize they finally stopped making unicorn kits
>>21752611the RG isn't glowy, they just needed a gimmick for these retardedly expensive figure lines
>>21752676At what cost?
>>21752676There's not really much more to do, Unicorn and all it's variants have been milked to death in every grade. The only thing I guess they could do is Crystal Unicorn outside of the HG line.
>>2175268410 long years ..
>>21749603>>21751048Final flat coat applied. Have to do the rest of the kit now.
>>21752721that gold looks awful
>>21752781It's Mr Color's. Got any suggestions?
>>21752792It looks too thick. And looks like you brushed it straight onto the plastic with no glossy black base.
>>21752813I blasted it with Mr Surfacer 1500 Black. I thought you only need a black gloss base for clear colors.
>>21752816No you need it for metallics too otherwise it will look dull
>>21752792paint it yellow or chrome yellow instead
>looking through ebay for Macross kits>come across this>Ultimate Collection around (400) items, super rare toys, resin kits, plastic kits, books, magazines, various anime, etc!>Collection includes around (100) professionally built resin/plastic rare kits that were airbrushed, have waterslide decals, etc. Some cost $600 each for assembly, etc due to complexity.>Many rare resin kits from Japan collected over more than twenty years!>Holy Grail kits only available if you stood in line with hundreds of people at a Japanese Wonder Festival dating back twenty years, and were lucky enough to get a kit of which (10) or less were made.
>>21752824This. Gold swapped for yellow almost never looks good because the other color tones of the kit are based around bright yellow, and not gold.
>>21752721don't flat coat the gold parts anon
>>21752721in that light the gold looks like cardboard lole
>>21752825Why the fuck would anyone put an entire collection of big boxes on sale instead of just selling everything individuallyI can understand it with something like game cartridges or cards and shit but not fucking model kits
>>21752892>fuck it I don't have time for this shit
>>21752533https://files.catbox.moe/gfx1gw.mp4watch this dude rage at its fingers
Man, people weren't kidding about how back-heavy the Marchosias is. Had to tighten its joints even more than the usual IBO kits for that one.
>>21752833bright yellow never looks good either, you almost always get better results with a darker yellow or even orange yellow
>>21753108>you almost always get better results with a darker yellow or even orange yellowPlease do not do this, it looks fucking terrible, see picUse proper, vibrant yellows
>>21753141that looks good tho, fits well with the almost pastel blue
>>21752721Why the fuck did you flat coat the gold? It looks worse now bro.
>>21753108orange yellow looks good with darker colors in the pallette and/or a warmer off white (think mk ii titans/aeug). not good with too many bright blues (just like gold).
>>21752931bro I think your Ingram is autistic
