Previous thread: >>10264818I was looking through my backlog yesterday and realized something... I had totally forgotten that Shiki exists. Dont know why, i like the design, but... man, is she forgetable for some reason...What are some mainline girls youve forgotten? What was the reason? Was it because the design was unremarkable or like me and Shiki here, sits in a black void in your memory?Read the guide:https://docs.google.com/document/d/17kIQkTbSQOIVahREFmycWhobDnftvuSPTOcz7aSMOnA/pubOfficial Skintone & Compatibility guides:>imgur.com/a/AQ4aRUpcoming Releases & Restocks:--->Megami device:• Asra Tamamo-no-Mae (Reissue) [Feb]• BULLET KNIGHTS Launcher (reissue) [Mar]• BULLET KNIGHTS Lancer (reissue) [Mar]• Sol Roadrunner (reissue) [Apr]• Sol Hornet (reissue) [Apr]• Sugumi Kanagata (Wakataki) [Apr]• Busou Shinki TYPE EVIL STRARF [May]• AUV Susanowo (reissue) [Jun]• Mutsumi Koashi (Gou-ki) [Jul]>Frame Arms Girl:• Hresvelgr Ater (Reissue) [Jan]• Durga I (Reissue) [Feb]• Cross Frame Girl GaoGaiGar (Reissue) [Mar]• Kongu [May]• Qpmini Stylet [May]• Magatsuki Houten [Jun]• Hresvelgr=Albas [Jun]• Gourai-Kai with Exosuit Gourai (WHY?)[Jul]>30 Minute Sisters:• SIS-D00 Nevalia (Color A) [Feb]• Option Parts Set 6 (Chaser Costume) (Color A)[Feb]• Option Parts Set 7 (Evil Costume) (Color A) [Mar]• Option Hairstyle Parts Vol.7 (4 Types) [Feb]• Option Body Parts Arm & Leg Parts (White/Black) [Feb]• Tokai Teio (Uma Musume: Pretty Derby) [Mar]• Option Body Parts Type A03 (Color C) [May]• SIS-Ac19b Ciana=Amalthia (Vivace Form) [May]• Option Body Parts Type S04 (Color C) [Jun]• SIS-Ac65n Powerari=Palyton (Grave Form) [p-p-p-P-BANDAI]

New mecha musume line by the same people that did Seawolf (the companion mech for Tapigirl). Expect them to be very modular and even more expensive.

>>10283333it's a statue? that's even worse!
I don't understand why Bandai 30MS optional hair or faceplates are so expensive. And not only in EU - while hair packs (4 types in pack) cost 25€ in EU shops (if they are available at all), they cost 1000 yen each at Mandarake. And faceplates, still not available at Hobby Frontline, have listed 35€ as price. Why?
>>10283381>fixed pose prototype>guuuh it's a statue uhhhhhAnon, how the fuck? Are you legit unable to infer what a fixed pose prototype is from the image provided and anons response?
>>10283843I'm just fucking shitposting, of course I understand what responding to me anon wrote.

>>10286154Arms and upper thighs are basically 1:1 lol. Wouldn't mind grabbing one because it's relatively cheap and the actual Daisy Cutter bootlegs are absolutely terrible.(They really tried recasting plastic joints in resin)
Got my first kit and have been breaking off the pieces carefully with my hands, do I need tools or can I do it just like that? Do the tools give a cleaner break than with hands? I don't know if putting together Haros count but I have only put those together and have done those with no tools.It's Koto's angel and I have their fox on P.O
>>10286297>breaking off pieces>off the runner>with your HANDSDAWG, are you a caveman? The fuck are you doing? Go look at a gunpla tutorial on YouTube, USE FLAT NIPPERS AND A HOBBY KNIFE!!On the flip side, definitely post pics when your done, I have to see what this looks like.
>>10286206Someone needs to show him this shit on Twitter. I would love to see him flip his shit. The gk's are one thing, but this I fucking hilarious.

>>10283201I'm using Raser and a cheap budget nipper instead of Godhand and it was amazing, no more shitty sand paper, sponge and weak ass overpriced nipper
>>10286041legs r too long
>>10286920Yeah single bladed nipper plus a glass file tool makes sanding a breeze, only gripe i have is all the dust the plastic shavings create may be toxic so an air purifier may be something worth buying
>>10286822I'd take any of the little armory figma over this cheap knockoff.
>>10287695Plastic/resin dust is a huge meme around here. Cured resin dust and plastic dust are classed as a minor potential lung irritant. As long as you're not making clouds you're fine to be without mask
What is supposed to means "gen" for zoomers?
>>10283277Saw a review of Ichi here >>10286654 and the separate eyes and face plates are an acceptable compromise to fully poseable eyes.Much better than how bandai did it with their FRS and better for customizers as well.Hope FAGs and MDs pick up on this. Makes it easier to gloss coat the eyes and flat coat the face for a better look.
Is it possible they will make minimum factory mirage farina jenius but with joints like they did alto saotome?[spoiler]is this even the right thread to ask?[/spoiler]
first time getting a figma, this is fun
>>10286036>>10286341Muscuto bootleg?Fucking finally. Even Die Buddy managed to release his stuff without making it a JP convention exclusive.
>>10287967Just for clarifying - plastic dust can be harmful, especially if it's very fine, which is why professionals wear mask at work. BUT! Modeling work is not working at factory 24/7 and you don't produce fine enough dust to actually do any real harm. Even if, you are removing very little of material while sanding and inhale maybe 10% tops of what's get into air while your nose and lungs will do their work to stop or remove most of it before it do any real harm. What's left is not any dangerous than what you inhale while walking next to street everyday.It's good to know what you work with but not to fall into paranoia.
Newfag here, so do i panel lining before or after topcoating?Also i seen some people saying the ink from Tamiya panel line or Gundam marker can make the plastic cracked, is this true?
>>10288624Gloss top coat - > Panel line - > flat top coat or whichever one you want. This the one I'm familiar with.
>>10288627What the point of gloss topcoat though? is matte fine?
>>10286920I just bought the raser gate remover set, its good but is there anything to replace the balancer, shit is expensive as fuck and it ruined after like 2 kits
>>10288688not him, but to protect the plastic from being eaten away by the harsh panel liner, plus it allows it to flow smoothly thru the panels lines.
>>10288688Protects the plastic from the panel liner's thinner, seals in decals (if applicable), and gives the panel liner a nice smooth surface to flow onto.
>>10288688Matte surface is a bit porous, gloss is smooth. Therefore when applying panel liner, which usually is enamel based thinned paint (that's what most people have in mind when mentioning "panel liner"), it flows easily into recesses and similar. In addition to that, you can easily remove liner from gloss surface but once you stain matte, it's pretty much set and only thing you can do is to paint over. "Protecting the plastic" part isn't as important as people believe but Koto plastic seems to be especially prone to going brittle if too much of enamel thinner goes into place where it can't evaporate.Of course nothing will prevent you from using acrylic washes if you want, it's just that they tend to be harder to handle if you just want to do panel lining or pin washing.
Anyone got the colored-pencil skin shading tutorial?
Where do I buy 1/12 clothes besides booth?I wanted a blazer, I dunno if people actually make them or if I should cannibalize one of the high school koto girls
>>10289243Azone might do one in their Picco Neemo line, have a look on Hobbysearch
>>10289305ah they have one but its sold outthanks anon
>>10289318You might get lucky on Mandarake, worth a shot
>>10288694Yeah, the balancers are really nice but they also wear out stupidly fast.Fortunately, you can buy replacements from places like USAGS for like $5 for a three-pack.
>>10288624Gundam marker bleeds when topcoated. Tamiya panel wash uses a thinner that breaks certain kinds of plastic (polystyrene)If your new to doing panel lines I recommend a cheepy bottle of black acrylic paint and a small brush. Clean up can be done with a toothpick, and it won't screw with most topcoats.
He's seen it.

>>10289898any sewing machine will workthe main thing are the techniques and the imagination
>>10289372>>10289375Thanks,. So,. 2 questions.Do I topcoat again on top of the pencil?And can you put gloss over the eyes on top of the matte?

>>10291570What is that ant with the girl's head?
I was contemplating buying an airbrush, anyone have any experience? It sounds like it would make painting prints and recasts a lot simpler.
>>10291855>>10291857I mean, there was this figma knight girl that wasn't actually tan but looked like she was in every single picture.
>>10293437Yes, do you have any questions about it?A chinese set is good to start with and it does make painting a lot faster.
>>10293437I'm new to it, but it's been great so far. Painting is a lot easier and faster now, cheaper too as I don't have to use aerosol cans anymore. I do use lacquer more tho, they're easier to work with.
>>10293437>>10293535Look for a basic compressor with a decent variation in pressure. It also helps to get one that doesn't shake the fuck out of itself, and be careful that you place it where it won't suck up dust and paint particles. The compressor is pretty simple to find, but the most important part is finding a brush you like. Do you want a top or bottom fed, what price range are you looking at, and how much replacement parts cost. I like my iwata top fed, since the parts are easily swapped whenever I want to change things about how it works, like my nozzle size or needle length.Also, I strongly recommend Mr color leveling thinner, that shit makes just about anything go through an airbrush with ease.
>>10292366>The announcement is that there will be an announcementBoy, did not expect to get yo doged
>>10293663Also a combine YouTube channel.
>>10293664Wonder if what Nevalia's promo art was showing is actually the case and 30mm and 30ms are the same universe, with Nevalia having a spinatia army.
>>10293533>>10293605I was thinking I might just get a well reviewed one like the iwata eclipse, I can part with a bit of money and If I hate it I can just sell it, maybe return depending on where I buy it. As for the compressor, does it really matter that much? If you can control the airflow through the brush it should be fine if the compressor isn't fancy, right? I wasn't sure if a generic one with a big tank would be better, or one specifically made for airbrushing that runs quieter.>>10293535I hear you can use Windex (with future) instead of lacquer, which is cool because lacquer is kinda scary from what I've read.
>>10293691Might be better to get a cheap airbrush to practice with first, so you don't accidentally damage an expensive one, and a cheap one costs only about 20€.I have been using a generic chinese compressor without a tank for years now, it works fine and is fairly quiet, my spraybooth makes more noise.Lacquer fumes may give a bit of brain damage if you have bad ventilation but surely getting a really nice paintjob on your kits is worth it?
>>10293664mechabros.... we lost
>>10293605Why would you ever buy a siphon fed airbrush?
>>10293737https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxDHgFYfcckFirst video on the channel is a 30MM commercial though.
>>10293669>>10292428Both are happening on Youtube at 8pm Japan time.
>>10293738I'm sure someone has gotten good results with them...
>>10293691Lacquer is only really scary in a poorly ventilated area, make sure to wear something on your face and either use a proper spray booth or spray outside.
Schizo says she's using POM for the wrist, ankle, and elbow joints http://schizophonic9.com/re7/30ms_neverlia.html
>>10292366This says they're launching a "joint new product". Does that mean they're just going to announce new figures side by side, or are we getting kits designed to work together? Like a Spinatia variant with armor specifically designed to fit the Sisters.
>>10294400She also uses a more standard wrist joint now, thank god. The seamless hip mold looks a lot better too. Less gap. Torso is not so good. Some progress. Now I want to see the next sister.>>10294404>Spinatia variant with armor specifically designed to fit the Sisters.Reaper is already out.
>>10294400what the fucking shit. I ordered this on day 1 and I'm seeing already as Backordered on HLJ. Is this released already and I missed it?Also wtf, they can do anything when designing the model, why the FUCK do they choose to put a horrible gap when she bends.
>>10294614>put a horrible gap when she bendsgives you range
>>10294614Because Bandai’s fetish is girls that look like model kits, not model kits that look like girls.
>>10294614Hold on for a few days, HLJ can be slow getting new stock in and processing it. Took them a day or two for my Spinatia Reaper to come in. Now, if I get a payment confirmation for the new body and not the girl I'm gonna be so pissed
>>10294630Honestly the range isn't even that good. The problem here is bandai won't/can't copy koto tech.Their best attempt at a torso was their first, the Rishetta type. Maybe they'll give in like with the wrist joints.
>>10294614how do they keep making worse bodies when they got it almost perfect on the first try with richetta?
>>10294643>Now, if I get a payment confirmation for the new body and not the girl I'm gonna be so pissedLeave it in your warehouse until you get your daughter. Send them a two year long message.

>>10295161Well, now I know what I'm doing with my Powerari.Tank constellation...
>>10283902you must not want your shit if it's sitting in someone else's storage bin for a year. I don't understand people who wait that long on shit; a month or two to collect some preorders, sure, but once you hit that point what are you even spending money for.
>>10287967resin's no meme, given what half of it is cured with.resin rule 1: if what you're about to work on smells like poisonous cancer, get an n95 mask, and/or learn to wet-sand.
>The side boobs is actually a different pieceYes
>>10295552That was pretty obvious when the recolor has the cleavage black and sideboob flesh color
>>10295188Those pictures make her look like a cardboard cutout. Why does the torso and waist look so flat? Unironically not a boob joke
>>10295584Sometimes Bandai cheapen out their part separation.It's rather nice that it's fully confirmed
>>10295592They're not gonna use big stickers on the only part people are buying the kit for
>>10295587but she is close to cardboard?
>>10283230Would these fit the Sousai Shoujou Teien swimsuit bodies, or are they too big?
>>10295443The one with the gas mask was out at the same time as Neverlia, but there's the other version out next month
When were muscuto's December orders due?
>>10295623Oh RIP, I wish HLJ would tell you if you're in the first wave for a bandai preorder. For that reason I only preorder koto stuff since you know you'll get it on release if you manage a preorder
>precure mecha musumeI'm not sure if this is turbo cringe or the greatest thing I've ever seen in my life.
>>10295510my resin (polyurethane) doesn't smell at all after curing and even when curing it doesn't smell strongly or bad at all, so i don't think smell is a good measure here
>>10295827Which Cure is this one based off of? Looks pretty cool
>>10295587the fuck are you talking about?
>>10295827They're all cringe, you just have to accept it

Gave one of my bunnies the Ranni upgrade today. Need to color match for ASRA skin but I really like it.
I want to turn left into right, can someone give me any tips?I bough and airbrush and was thinking of just spraying the skin until it sort of resembles the skin color on the left. Or do i have to add some primer before this? Also will use a different head from ritsuka saeki who looks more tomboyish
What the fuck?This addition doesn't make any sense.
>>10296480This is just a clusterfuck.But I guess she's horn mocking whole industry.
>>10295841>Which Cure is this one based off of?It's actually based of a chinese ip Balala the Fairies, which is more toku than anime and kind of like precure and sailor moon
>>10296463Priming before would be best for durability.
>>10295587>>10295607>>10295897It just looks really weird to me.
>>10296463You would have to hard mod it, but the clothed part in https://p-unit-qeeeeen.booth.pm/items/3645339would look good for that look. They announced that they are restocking after wonder fest, but it's worth it considering that their resin quality feels like injection plastic
>>10296518it's not just you, it looks like when ethots deform their photos in photoshop to make their waist look smaller. really weird
>>10296518It is a picture of a minor update of the master.Not final.
>>10296463I'd hold off on that project.

>>10296480How does that not make sense? She's an astronaut infected by a space monster. She's being affected by the white Nebula the same way Dracaena was with the black one.
>>10296484Makes me hope there will be a clear white version similar to the bonus clear black ones Dracaena had.

>>10297364Anon, it's up to you to get 2 clear Dracaena to make that Cosmos one.I say two because horns are Dracaena tail/sword which I presume comes with only one.The new C&C set comes only with new white wings.
>>10297459?? I said I'm hopeful for clear white parts? That has nothing to do with getting more black ones?
Well, this is certainly something...
>>10299218Not the strangest thing I've seen on booth, like the cube-ified bodies.
Shared link on /m/ so I guess I can share it here as well. Finished my custom 30MS project - chest from one optional set, legs from another, hair as well, face and ears casted from Green Stuff, arms, feet and jetpack scratchbuilded out of PS. All brushpainted with eyes from Innocentia. 4 months of work total. If anyone is interested, I uploaded gallery on private site, if anyone is interested (45 photos): http://www.sabi-sif.mb4.pl/gunpla-mg-rg-other/30ms-sis-c01-erika/At one hand I feel that I could do it better but at another, Im actually proud of myself.
>>10299992Honestly more ambition and quality than you'd usually see in these threads
>>10299992Paint looks awful, but the actual build is nice. Good job.
Kitbashing is fun, Ill probably paint the red bits black.
Okay. I have built... Neverlia... (another fucking name change?)So, with the twins bandai tried to introduce a bunch of new tech into the line, purpose being that it would add additional poseability to the kits. It did not work at all, and the twins wound up having the worst movement of the line so far.Neverlia (being much larger than the twins) gets a lot more room to work the new waist in and also has a redesigned midriff block, where the joint is essentially the shoulder cups from most modern gundam hgs. It technically works quite well, only issue being that the edges of the hexagonal section on her belly get caught on each other and can cause severe gouging of the extremely soft bandai plastic. The upper torso range is absolutely nuts, and can bend almost 90° forward, but at the cost of a 90° cavity opening up where the upper body once was. Fortunately, though they still have a bit of trouble getting strait out in front of her, the legs a much better than last time, not getting hung out quite as badly.All in all her articulation can basically allow her to bend so far forward that her head can actually go between her legs. Unfortunately the cost is that her back looks absolutely ridiculous.She has pom ankles, elbows, and wrists. They work just fine. They squeak.If I had to place her among the 30ms releases she is dead center. Not counting Alka and Far, she is worse than Richetta an Luluce, but better than Taisha and the twins. She is not horrible, but she has a bunch of weaknesses that greatly detract from an otherwise decent package.I hate the way bandai did her hair articulation. The sides are fine but the back looks like she has a mullet tacked on the back of her head.
>>10300466Yeah, definitely... flexible...
Anyone else get their replacement figma Yumi Yotsuya? Mine just came today. Haven't had the chance to mess with the figure yet, but from the tray it looks like everything is in order now. Will take photos tomorrow once I get the chance
>>10300582If I buy one now, I can't get a replacement anymore right?
>>10300591Most likely, although I'm not seeing a strict deadline listed on the notice page. It's worth asking anyway.https://www.goodsmile.info/en/post/5445/Additional+Notice+and+Apology+Regarding+figma+Yumi+Yotsuya+Product+Defects.html
>>10299431Okay, but what about this
Latest kitbash. Shes a combination of Gene and Iris. Still needs a couple nubs cleaned and someday I'll paint her when I'm more confident.
>>10301845God, my phones camera is shit.
>>10300466>>10300475Did you get her from HLJ? Has anyone got her from HLJ?
>>10301928Preordered her from HLJ but got backordered. I got in too late, I guess.
>>10301928>>10301956no, i preordered literally only a few hours after she went up and still got put on backorder. same story for the mask face option set. pretty crazy, every other time i've ordered bandai stuff day 1 i've got it
>>10301928She's in my pile of loot, but I got her, yeah. That and the red option set.
>>10301928Yes. Pic related was from hlj. Almost all the girls I've gotten excluding Far were on time from the first release.Might have pics of Chaser up tonight.
>>10302227Should I cancel my order, or will it get fulfilled eventually? I was waiting to ship until she released but I only have about three weeks left before my other stuff ships automatically
>>10302762you'll get it eventually, probably in the next reprint if you ordered it day 1also hlj doesn't have autoship any more
>>10301944I was just thinking the other day I hope they reissue this particular kit and here we are. Thank you koto, now reissue Kaede.
>>10302762They don't charge you until its about to go into your private warehouse so I wouldn't cancel unless you've already bought another
Just snagged Pre-Orders for SIN-01 Gluttony and Strarf from USAGundamStore's Flash sale. Should get here by late summer and I'll have cleared out some backlog by then for them.
Neverlia was nice enough to hold Chaser's limbless body for a picture. The lack of limbs is shit. The fact this set uses the new Neverlia heel feet means you HAVE to get another Neverlia to use the full set. On the other hand, this is probably the best option body from the perspective of what comes in the box. You get a faceless quadruple amputee. The joints are fine. Slightly less hip movement than Neverlia, something I failed to mention in my prior post is that the Neverlia joints (while not as good in general as Rishetta) along with the shape of the parts around give these two quite decent combine twisting movement.There is no stand hole in her lower back. Why.
>>10303397>Should get here>USAGundamStorekek
>>10303553I've never had problems with USAGundamStore and I've used them for years.Unlike HLJ which shipped my MD Arnval on Christmas Eve and she's yet to enter the states, so I'll probably not see her until April at this rate, if ever.
>>10302248>pile of lootBbts term, cringe
>>10303478The limb sets all come with (bare) feet though
>>10303686Then use a better shipping method next time cuz that's the norm for surface mail.There's a reason why I pay 7k~12k just for shipping.At least they don't lie to you about getting stock.USAGS fuckin made me wait a whole year and still didn't get the kit in stock and tried to lie to me saying "manufacturer" delayed it.Checked up with the manufacturer themselves and nope. They're not even gonna make the kit.Had to go through paypal and force them to refund me.Used them for years, and poof. Banned.Have fun waiting forever lol
>>10302227Yeah me tooSeems I didn't get her either. I think I'll just cancel all my 30ms pre-orders from HLJ. It's fucking scummy that they can't even tell you how many orders they will able to fulfill. Like, I could've ordered from BBTS but because I ordered from HLJ on day 1 and they kept offering pre-orders I thought I would get her. Now it's not available on BBTS either. Fuck HLJ
>>10303478>You get a faceless quadruple amputeeThat's next level of fetish material.
>>10303720Chaser doesn't feel right with bare limbs. Maybe just the arms, but unatmored legs doesn't seem right for her.Now, the "lewd" combo of Chaser and Evil with all the flesh parts making the strap top yeah, that would work fine with flesh limbs especially if you swap the thighs to flesh Rishetta versions.
>>10303861I mean, this is not unexpected in terms of waiting, as SAL was estimated to take between 1-4 months. Normally it takes two months for SAL in my experience, with my previous order from HLJ (three Snail Shell TIWAZ units; a commander and two mass production, and two of the Gun Girl Lady figures) arrived in under a month.And I get you had a bad experience with USAGS, since I recall hearing that story before, but again that hasn't been my experience with them. Only had one SNAFU happen years ago where they only shipped part of my order when both kits were in stock, but one phone call later with proof and they immediately shipped the second kit out while waiving the shipping cost.
>>10301845good job, she looks great
With three sets of limbs, I feel almost like some Japanese hoarder...
>>10303861Seems like USAGS bans a lot of people even it's all their fault.I got banned for refusing to let them take credit card fees for a refund after they had not kept track of their stock and ran out stuff I ordered.Thing is they didn't even know about it until I contacted them more than a week later after I ordered.Fuck those scammers.
>>10304584I wish the hair parts weren't more than a whole girl
And now Chaser has limbs.I'm torn on what to do for the backpack, I want to do something along the lines of booster binders or a pair of spider legs. Her emblem is either a dragon or salamander, so I thought that I could try out a set of claw armatures that fold into a backpack... but I don't know...
>>10305521poor small spinatia commando type :(
>>10305402I know, right? 1000 yen for single hair style on Mandarake, while you can have Kotobukyia girl for 4000-5000.
>>10305810You found somewhere that actually separates them out? I've only seen them for sale as the set of 4 for roughly the same price for one of the original 3 girls
>>10305902Sets in EU cost actually more than girls themselves (something around 28€). As for separate ones - Mandarake have both sets and separate to buy and in EU shops, I only found single Polish shop (zinc mecha) that sell hair as separate packs (42 PLN each if I recall correctly).
>>10302769What happens if I exceed the time limit then? There's still a count down beside each of my items.
>>10306123nothinghttps://support.hlj.com/hc/en-us/articles/900000454003they say it's temporary and that's why they haven't removed the countdown, but it's been like 3 years now and there's no sign of them reinstating autoship. they even advertise unlimited storage time now since they redesigned the website.they did start auto refunding stuff people had stored for about 2 years in december though, but there's still people holding onto stuff they bought in 2021
How'd you go about removing eye decals again? Mineral spirits? Do I even need to if I'm painting over them?
>>10306280Paint over them. Give it a try. See what happens.
>>10306280Mr leveling thinner. Also works as a great way to use harsh lacquers and enamels on susceptible plastic.
>>10296384where get them high heels?
>>10307269Looks like muscuto.
>pre-order Gluttony kit of mecha Anubis and Egyptian gal from HobbySearch>kit finally show up in stock>get charge over 9000yen for EMSit doesn't suppose to cost that much, bloody hell
>>10307414We warned you, bro.
>>10307414Mate that box is gonna be huge and is gonna weigh a grip
Are there any decent model kits of guys in military uniform or casual clothing?
>>10307414Use Gundamit or ShowZStore in the future. Your Gluttony was about $135 with shipping at the current exchange rate. My Gluttony was $93.32 and free shipping.
Whats the best way to practice airbrush and painting? I was thinking miniatures but holy fuck theyre expensive. The next best thing was maybe Little Armory guns or repainting gachapon figures. Any suggestions?
>>10307710plastic spoons and cheap sub $20 gunpla kits, sub $10 kits if those still exist
>>10307710The entry grade gundam kits, and small high grades like the 00 gundam without the raiser. Basically any high grade under 10 bucks.30mm also if you can get the kits on sale.
>>10307716>>10307718Man, I dont want to build a whole kit just to practice painting.
>>10307723Spoons it is, then.
>>10307710Little armoury kits are more expensive per amount of plastic than musume are, man.
>>10307723Sheets of foam core, don't use paper because it's porous unlike plastic so your paint wont act the same
>>10307710>Little Armory gunsthat's more expensive and consider harder to build than gunpla lol, try sd gundam kits instead of hg kits
>>10307710Minis aren't that expensive when you think about it. For painting practise you only need single set, WH40k basic squads with 10 or so minis can be found for 30€ or something. Minis are actually good in a sense that you finish them quickly, practicing more than with some Gundam or plastic girl that could take week or two.Of course that's for brush painting - air brush would require bigger model than some 28mm minis. And there are always cheap and simple plane or tank models.
>>10307414>Buying chinese kits from japanAnon.....why?
> end the main line
>>1030801430MM strong! We won't end like Frame Arms!
>>10308251With the upcoming 30 Minute Fantasy, they are only getting strong
>>10308251The Frame Arms line is still going on tho, we just got a release a few months ago.
>>10308888Who the hell in koto thought it was ok to use kunio's design without any redesigning?
>>10288430how can you buy and assemble one of these without knowing what it is? lol nerd
>>10289581there's really no point in bitching about it, china does this for literally everything. they reverse engineer products and ship them out for free because they get a "developing nation" discount on exports. they'll never stop
>>10293228I also want to know this
>>10296910I am just getting into this stuff. when are these, especially left, supposed to be coming out?
>>10299218those eyes are awesome! which lines typically include eyes like that?
>>10305521Can you put that mask on a 30MM head?
>>10309141This might the 12 March announcement
>>10309148which site is this?
>>10307945aliexpress was even more expensive for europpor such as myself
>>10291830literally what is wrong with tan? i don't understand this meme. i'm just getting into this stuff but this thread seems like it's full of very angry people
>>10309016What's wrong with the original design? Okawara is arguably the greatest mecha designer of all time.
>>10309387Not sure what you're reading from this, but he's just asking whether the kit will actually be tan or if the pictures just make look it is. Clearly he wants it to be tan.Nigger.
>>10309387>this thread seems like it's full of very angry peopleidk what threads you go in but this thread is very welcoming and unangry compared to almost every other thread i look at
Time to bully the Ao.
>>10309387Have you tried Reddit?
>>10309387He wants tan. I want tan. Murder yourself, faggot.
Are the Pre-owned models in amiami good or complete?
>>10310082preowned just means the box has been sat unopened in some guy's box fort for a few months or years
>>10310082Pretty much what >>10310114 said. I've never bought a model kit used but I got a few statues & action figures in the past and they're pretty much always in near perfect condition with a scuffed box unless it says otherwise in the description.
>>10309148My sides will be in orbit if they pull an Arcanadea
>>10310658If Bandai wanna do more centaur ladies, I won't complain
>>10310658that's what it's gotta be, the entire 30mx line is just copying koto. 30mm is their take on fa, 30ms is their take on fag/md, so logically continuing on from that 30mf is going to be their take an arcanadea
QuestionDoes Volk's JP online store ship oversea (not the US) if I order this kit from their japanese website?I thought local import/exporters would have the thing for preorder but it has been a week and nothing happen. Usually with other stuff like Koto's kits you would literally have the pre-order pages up as soon as the Japanese's in the same day.
>>10309600no but i tried ur mom last nite and her pussy was WET DOE. i do big cums.
>>10310758Pretty sure Volks JP does ship worldwide. It's only by EMS or DHL though, can be pretty pricy.
>>10310758yes, i've bought fss kits from their jp store in the uk>>10310781they seem to ship to me via dhl even if i pay the lower ems price. really weird but i'm not complaining
>>10310758They send me my Cosmos to East Europe.If they can ship to my shithole they for sure can send it to you.
>>10310932What much was the shipping if you don't mind me asking and for how long?I am literally next to Japan I should able to guess a proper shipping price
>>10310726Nevaria is halfway there
>>10310726I think it's probably just going to be fantasy style mecha in a similar vein to the spinatio/a variants with the samurai/knight/vampire motif, but more integrated with the kits.Maybe something like a danazine or even the amplified blue eyes white dragon and the like.I just hope the fantasy elements don't equal obvious organic parts.
How long does it usually take for Muscuto to send out orders?
>>10311592I'm kind of expecting them to release a dragon or horse themed kit, with the latter having obvious usage for making centaurs. There's no real reason why that couldn't be in the 30MS line, but it'd still be neat to see either way.
BEST 30MM sister to begin in the line???I want to get a couple.
>>10312595Whatever is available desu
>>10311603Extra long for whaito piggu
>>10312595Rishetta, or Alka. Luluce if those are not available. The Taisha body is quite bad.Neverlia is also fine, very standard generally.
>>10312661What's the best replacement body/torso for Taisha, like color and engineering wise?
>>10310998January of 2022 shipping costed me 2,950yen.
>>10312661Why exactly you don't like Taisha body? Is it because of small size makes it appear odd?
>>10312923lol someone hasn't seen the pics
>>10312923The torso “crunch” leaves a pretty glaring gap on the back of the figure. And the pelvis joint is also happy when put into any non-neutral pose. The limbs are fine, but the torso is a pretty substantial part of the figure and a major percentage of the price. Don’t know if the alt Taisha bodies are any better or worse, but it’s not MG-tier (don’t own a FAG so I can’t argue that point).
>>10313161I would argue that back issue is shared with other bodies as well. What worries me, in general with 30MS, that joints seems to get "stuck" when not moved for day or two. I constantly worry that I could break them by trying to move again.
What kit should I get if I want the best poseability?
Is this bitch ever going to release?
>>10313671LOOK AT THE TOP OF HER HEAD
>>10312923This is why.
>>10313785I should add, none of the other bodies do this, it's only Taisha.
>>10313198The plastic definitely feels like it "sticks", that's how I snapped the neck on my first gen Rishetta but doing a tiny bit of sanding plus the redesigned neck fixes this problem
>>10313797The neck problem stemmed from a molding flaw causing the ball to be larger than it should.The combination of this flaw, bandai's soft plastic, the unflexing socket, and the small size of a structural point made for the perfect storm of breakable necks.I always forget Rishetta didn't come with her armor...
>>10313739Oh lawd, she comin'!
>>10313432Newer MDs. Or older MD with the MSG Top/Bottom
>>10313739Yeah and its been close to 3 years since they posted that.
>>10313788I do wish they would develop some decent adapters for 30MM limbs. Those thigh extensions only feel proportional with the legs in pic related, everything else is very wonky.
>>10313817Nah the joint was joint was also thinner and they added a cut out to the hole in the head so it also wasn't as tight. I can probably take some comparison pics when I get home
>>10313797I did the sanding for torso and arms sockets but it still gets stuck when not moved, normally it goes pretty smooth. Why it happens in first place?
Got my first Frame Arms Girl in today and quickly put her together. I added the little jacket to the order on an impulse and I’m really glad I did, it fits a lot better than I expected.
>>10313817Did later runs fix this problem?
>>10313897>Newer MDsWhich are considered newer? Is bullet knight exorcist (white and blue one) one of them?
>>10314334The AGA girls and Susanowo (Baselard and the Bullet Knights are transitional, while Arnval is retro-plus). They have the newer shoulders and the improved Materia-style thigh swing joint; Baselard's shoulders need a little sanding due to resistance, the second-wave Bullet Knights have improved shoulders over the ASRA girls but not the latest tech although they DO have the new thicc thighs, and Arnval uses Classic Shinki swing hip pegs and single-jointed knees, although she has latest-tech shoulders and seems to be the testbed for Block II torso block construction.
>>10313897What about chinese kits, how are they compared to MDs? I'm thinking about Nuke Matrix Rabbit pr Siren kits, and MS General's biker girl or that Ox smithy girl
>>10314334I believe the new thighs started on Exorcist/Executioner, while the new shoulders started on the releases after them.
>>10314382Nuke Matrix is decent, with very uhhh "similar" tech to MD.
>>10314382They're OK but machinika-based bodies have the best poseability. MD, Chicoterium, and Dark Advent
I've heard that Vlocker's fiore kits are all really bad, is that true?
>>10316264The early ones are. Iris was the turning point and even that had some joint problems but I think they're good now. Still not at the level of Koto though.
>>10316264>>10316947All Nidy-2D- kits are great.
>>10317791Her maid bits are cute, can't exactly say the same for her stomach though
New bread when?
