>>10415514Renders I mean
GoldymargShe looks pretty pumped for goldion hammer.
Elena looks pretty great so far. Head is a bit small though...
What is she so happy about?
>>10415520wasn't able to get Yukumobut I'm not really into her desing, maybe I will order her reissue in the future
>>10415572She is one hell of a lot bigger.
>>10415518I'm glad Goldymarg finally exists.Now back to waiting for GaoFighGar.
>>10415518I'm gonna buy this Goldymarg and use it for my RG GGG.
>>10415520I can only imagine Koto is going to be printing this kit until the end of time itself given how the horse half looks pretty good and that means the entire country of Japan is going to want this for customs.
>>10415520Booba bigger than head. Nice
>>10415540She's thinking about all her sisters
If you're in San Diego, Tokyo & Main has a lot of 30MS stuff, including Lirinel and Laranel. Discount Hobby Warehouse has alot of stuff including Laranel and 30MS Option Parts Set 7 Evil Costume.
I fucking knew it.Perfection...
>>10415987i wasn't onboard until I saw this image
>>10415986>>10415987cute and funny
>>10415514>>10415516Gonna wait for the one with the resting bitch face
>>10415572cancelled yukumo myself. tail is a gigantic hinderance and without it she's super generic and not as appealing as the other two.
>>10415986>That nailI’m not even a fan and I’m tempted.
>Schoolgirl with handgunSomething about this is...
>>10416585Can't wait to miss preorders for this one too.
>>10416585Are you guys able to PO directly from Kotobukiya, or do you just use 3rd party sites for stuff that sells out fast?
>>10416621I use local (SEA) retailers 1 month behind but dont run out of slots, usually. No bonuses though.
I never assembled a model kit before: is it fool proof or can you mess it up? Do I get a cheap set for practice or is it not that hard? Also they are pre-painted right?
>>10416707>I never assembled a model kit before: is it fool proof or can you mess it up?Yes try asking here for more tips >>10411810Do I get a cheap set for practice or is it not that hard?Gunplay is a better starter, otherwise look for a cheap frame arm girl or 30MSAlso they are pre-painted right?They are molded in color and have some face decals pre-applied
>>10416707You can fuck it up, but it's not particularly difficult.
>>10416707>fool proof: No, even the most experienced modelers can make mistakes that can lead to hours of repairs and reworking. I've accidentally trimmed pegs too short or mad essential connection too loose several times before, and that's without using the sometimes obtuse or flat wrong instructions that can be included in a kit.>practice kit:Absolutely. I strongly recommend building a couple modern high grades of various complexity before setting off into musume. The dragon ball kits are pretty good simple kits that benefit from many tricks used in musume if that floats your boat.>prepainted Hahahaha, no. Kits are colored, some have a couple prepainted parts, but the degree of paint some kits needs vs others varies wildly. Some need no paint, others need to be covered in it.If you want to just skip straight to building the girls, start with one of the Chaos and Pretty girls. They are the simplest, and have lots of building options. Remember when taking a part off a sprue to cut in two places, once about a millimeter or two up the runner from the part, and then from the angle the nub is thinnest from. Clean up of sprue marks is done with either a small hobby knife or a series of sanding sticks.
>>10416584>schoolgirl>blond hair>gunsShe's the american exchange student sharing her culture
>>10416782A downside to the C&P girls is they come with lots of clear plastic effect parts, which can be a little tricky for a novice. A WISM set might be a better choice.
>>10416794I'd say 30 Minute Sisters would be an even better choice, since they're the cheapest and simplest of all options on the market right now.
Not to familiar with the figure world, but how has Snail Shell Studio managed to make figures that are about the same price but better quality than figma? I have the sophia figure from figma and while I like it, the wasp girl figure is much better quality wise.
>>10416794Alice and Little Red have none.
>>10416878Some combination of no licensing fees, lower profit margins and cheaper labor (corporate, not necessarily industrial) would be my guess.
>>10416925Don't be silly; every man involved here (other than you) is yellow, I just wonder if China cut some fat or pays less.
>>10416920>licensing feesDoesn't snail shell also license their designs from artists?>lower profit marginsMakes sense, are snail shell and figma both publicly traded companies?>cheaper laborThis is probably a given
>>10416945>Doesn't snail shell also license their designs from artists?There's no way in hell licensing individual character designs is on the same level as getting the rights to do a whole slew of intellectual property.
>>10416707Depends on the kit, but even with an easy one you can still make mistakes. I'd recommend looking for a cheap gunpla or 30MM if it's your first time.
>>10416584Give her a AR-15!
>>10416731>>10416735>>10416782>>10417070So I saw one review for this and the colors looked flat like on cheap action figures while the promo pictures have the quality you know from expensive pre-painted display figurines. What would I have to do to give the parts the same kind of depth?
>>10417401You can get most of the way there with some detail painting, applying the decals, panel lining and a matter topcoat. I think the pro-built promo models may also be pre-shaded in some cases but that's more of an advanced technique.
New to Megami Device, what should I keep in mind when building?I know that some of the balljoints and pegholes need to be sanded down a bit, what should I use for that?
>>10417738Just a smidge of sandpaper or a quick sand with a file
>>10417738I sometimes use a drill bit that is just a bit loose and use it the same was as I would a file, in other times sandpaper or proper files are more practical, know that you need to remove VERY little material. There is a lot of "feeling" involved in this, so you will have to take a few leaps yourself.
>>10417738Don't over-sand, it's better to grease the joints with silicone grease and reduce wear and tear
>>10417579mmmm dipping sauces for my tendies
Anybody know a way I could get my hands on Sol Road Runner's armaments without the figure? I've got a hornet i'd like to have full armor on but I don't want the road runner just sitting around.
>>10417916https://en.kotobukiya.co.jp/product-series/m-s-g-modeling-support-goods/If it's not in here you're probably out of luck
>>10417401that's because the promo pics are painted>what would I have to do to give the parts the same kind of depth?paint them
>>10417916Check yahoo japan auctions. They often have parts of kits divided up. It's how I often get lots of parts for customs.>>10417929Those paints are pretty much as durable as laquer to begin with. You can always just topcoat anyways.
>>10416584arm the students to solve gun violence in schools. God I love Ritsuka
hlj just opened up some more preorders for fag kongo, she's on the front page so i imagine they'll be gone quick https://www.hlj.com/frame-arms-girl-kongo-kbyfg-019
>>10417916You can always use the Road Runner as custom fodder later down the line
>>10418104>>10417916Seriously, you'll want some spare bodies laying around if you ever get into say, Muscuto parts, because Koto doesn't like to sell just plain arms and legs. I'm having a fit because the last time I splurged on Muscuto stuff I grossly overestimated how many Bullet Knights I'd have... I have lingerie sets and tummies that are the wrong shades for my Asra girls.
>>10418154The world would be a nicer place is Koto sold decent MD blank bodies
>>10415576let's take bets on whether the horse pussy will be sculpted. I suppose not, but..
I need to try not to browse BOOTH when I'm even remotely horny, the urge to boobify and enlewdinate my girls is extremely strong...
>>10418290I'm glad shipping is expensive, otherwise I too would have bought far too many boobs from BOOTH
So, Swallow is probably the best Suyuta girl so far, maybe slightly better than Angela. Her face is slightly worse, being puffy and generally odd looking, her head in general is pretty bad. Her hair feels and looks cheap, splits very easily and blocks upward head movement. Her neck would be fine if not for the floating neck armor that gets caught on her chest, shoulders, and chin constantly. Aside from all that she is fine. Some strange design choices, nonsensical mechanical design and funky tolerances, but otherwise looks pretty decent.Be weary of the small pink parts on her booster pods, they are tiny, and on mine one of the eight was missing out of box. Also her tits are on a hinge to do... something...
Since a GaoFighGar is coming, I'll wait for inevitable Genesic and pick up the Goldymarg since that's the cutest shit I've seen in a long time
>>10418467Seriously why are they allowed to be this fucking cute
>>10418290>1700 yenWhat the fuck. I wish the Seria ones were back.
>>10418467Man, you could mod that Susan into Black Heart quite easily.I'd kill for some Neptunia girl kits, and maybe some of the Senran Kagura girls as well.Why haven't Compile Heart and Marvelous jump on that ship yet?When we already got fucking race horses and boring ass idols.
>>10418978I'm surprised too, but the license is probably worth too much for any major plamo makers to touch that shit. Black Heart was one of my gateways to mecha musume.
>>10418998>worth too much for any major plamo makers to touch that shit.And they would get more money by making their own Not-Black Heart anyway.
>>10418978We got a bootleg yumi, wish Nan's designs got more kits though, Assault Lilys just aren't for me.
Aren't we getting some more kits for Assault Lily though I remember them looking like ass.
>>104194417 deadly sins: slothHaven't seen the girl prototype tho so I guess TBA
>>10417514>>10417518>her boobs aren't giganticGonna have to mod this one I guess
>>10419283I think they showed them off a little at WonFes, you're right in saying they didn't look great though.
>>10418467UGH I'm gonna get two Susanoo she's just TOO CUTE FUUUUCK
Got Ji Banyan in today and snapped her together. Glad I paid at a significant discount because she definitely feels like a $50 figure. Engineering is great but the lack of accessories really kills any sense of value.I also don't like the flame tails, at 80 bucks these should have been two colors. Fortunately I still have some Tamiya clear blue so I think I'll just fix it myself.
do you guys paint all your figs or is it not unusual to just assemble them and leave them like that?
>>10420211I build too much shit to paint every kit. I'd go insane.
>>10420211Most of my girls aren't even decaled or topcoated and not all of them have detail paintwork done either.
>>10420508Grandma, what small thighs you have!
How hard would it be to learn how to design and build your own figurines?
>>10420645Ask the guy in the coomer threads on how he made a midget body type. I know he documented his process there
>>10420662>coomer threadHow about you fuck off?
>>10420645I am the guy >>10420662 is talking about. I'm doing my stuff on Blender for 3D printing with an Elegoo Mars 3 Pro. If you want my advice, start simple. Do something basic to get the essentials down and learn the process. You'll progress pretty quickly.As for some more specific advice:>Use the right resin. I use Elegoo ABS-like white as it can be dyed and is honestly pretty strong, certainly strong enough for figures.>Try out different exposure settings; lower exposure means the resin will be less brittle but it may lead to print failures.>More small supports are usually better than few big ones.>Resin does shrink slightly on curing, so bear that in mind when designing the model. It'll vary depending on the resin so do your research.>BoolTools is a great add-on for Blender and makes booleans (adding or removing shapes from meshes) much quicker and easier.>Don't over-detail models; remember the scale you're working at. You don't need tens of millions of polygons for a small piece, and what might look chunky on the screen will be 100% fine when printed. Very high facecounts can make slicers crash.>Speaking of slicers, Lychee and Chitubox both have a place. Lychee is better overall, and if you're willing to fork out $5 a month it's the superior option by far but hollowing models (for BIG parts) is part of the pro package whilst it's free for Chitubox.>You can absolutely print joints from resin if the stuff you're using is tough enough. Just be careful and exercise common sense.>Study the sort of figure you want to draw inspiration from for engineering.>Make sure the parts are properly cleaned and cured before assembly. Doubly so if you're using premade plastic joints as uncured resin can do bad things to them.>The layering texture is pretty unnoticeable on modern resin printers but remember you can always give it a light sanding if it bothers you too much.That's most of the advice I have- the best tutorial is trying it yourself. Good luck fren!
>>10420713>Doesn't include any images to show what he's talking aboutYou're a fucking retard you know that?
>>10420717Sorry, forgot to add my pic. This is an early build FWIW, so many changes have already been made (notably non-baby hands) and there will be further refinements made. But anyway, shows the basic principles; the knees and elbows are resin joints by the way, basic two-part hinges held together with 1mm pins.
>>10420721And the stupid thing came out sideways, great.
>>10420713Wow thank you for the detailed reply.Idk if this is a stupid question but does one need to learn how to draw well before doing 3D modeling? Right now I can only draw stick men... badly.
How do most of you store/sort your kits? Are they together on a shelf and do you have spares? I just got new furniture and it's giving me an opportunity to finally get mine out again and I haven't decided on my sorting solution because I get autistic like Lego or Gunpla in that regard. Just been doing my ziplock bag method so far.
>>10420754Not necessarily. It'll help, but it's more important to understand the principles of design rather than actual drawing techniques. I'm not the best artist in the world and I managed after all.
>>10420717wtf do you want, an entire 3d modelling tutorial from scratch? none of the tips he wrote requires a picture>>10420713saving this, thanks. i intend on learning 3d modelling over the summer then buying a 3d printer close to christmas
>>10420832>I'm such a heckin coomer, hell of a cowabunga pogchamp>>10420722>>10420721Why are you posting your ugly Dogshit here? Not shinki related
>>10420756Jewelry ziplocks, diferent sizes for diferent kits. Extra and scrap pieces go in a divided box by what type of part they are to be used in customs later.
Can you guys post some cool customs using Susanowo? I'm building my Souen and am planning on getting two Regalias so I need ideas.
Is there a place that shows 30MS manuals? I'm trying to see if two different option parts are compatible, and no it's not the 30MM pegs
>>10420956Pretty sure Hobbysearch has full manual pictures, but you need to use the Japanese site as they don't sell Bandai stuff to overseas customers anymore.
>>10420876Go away wumao.
>>10420717>>10420876Fuck off faggot redditard.
>>10420876>Not shinki related>Doesn't even know why this thread existskek
>>10420993Definitely not for disgusting coomers and their degeneracy.
>>10421028>disgusting coomers and their degeneracyNice self introduction faggot.Go back to your shitty board retard.
>>10421032>Busou shinki was founded on sexual desire for tiny girlsHow wrong you can be in such a simple statement, coom heads really are this retarded.
>>10421043You secretly just like saying coom don't you?
Got myself a 30 minute sister kit, they are not 30 minutes...Any tips for making a perfect seamless rounded part where a gate used to be?
>>10421156fine-grit abrasives. I use those cheap little manicure sets with a full grade of surfaces from rough (shaping) to smooth (smoothing, buffing, polishing).
>>10420509Damn, she sure pulls off the Cerberus look a lot better than Gabrine did back in the day.
>>10420512>>10420510>10420510>>10420509>>10420508Koto couldn't be bothered to even give her new hair. No thanks.
>>10421262Tamamo didn't get new hair either and she's great.
>>10421184Sponge sanding sheets
>>10421295Meant for >>10421156
>>10421262It's ok. There are options out there.
>>10421184>>10421298Are glass files too aggressive?I do have some sponge sticks but I could never really get a feel for when to switch between the 5 grits.
>>10420902I don't come here often, but looking up her full kit, I'm interested. How long ago did she come out? Is anyone still carrying her? Hobbysearch, HLJ, Amiami and BBTS all have both versions of her completely sold out.
>>10421326I make it a point not to use the rougher grades to begin with. Mostly it's practice, once the surface is even/the way you need it, switch to smooth, once the lines vanish, switch to buff, then polish once smooth.
>>10421440She should just be the head of the hammer at that point
I finally bought my own AGP.They feel so fragile. Also, are there any websites that sell them at a decent price? I'd like to secure more parts if anything if I can't afford the entire figure itself.
>HLJ finally gave me a Huckebein>no still sight of any 30MS stuff yetI'll get ny gssmask lady eventually, right?
>>10421546I actually just got mine in my private warehouse so you might get it soon.
>>10419979Two of this version or two versions? She'll be my third after the original and souen versions. I wasn't too keen on the blue at first but it grew on me the more I saw it so I ordered one.
>>10421418Those tits are made of lead?!
>>10421375Check yahoo japan auctions. There are some up now for around retail with the bonus stand.>>10421454Ami ami pre-owned section. They tend pop up for waaaaay cheaper than the price they where originally sold for, you just have to be patient. My Charlotte was 25 bucks before shipping.
>>10421633No, she just needs better support.
>>10421418>>10421633I like catgirls but something doesn't right with me on this one. We'll see if the color shots in the future will change my mind
Lots of potential from this characterCan't wait for the releasehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kjFDLTdQNXg
Do you keep your Shinki boxes?
>>10421634Thank you for the help
>>10422020Of course I do, I like to collect them too.
>>10421454Yikes. Is that how it came or did you slop a bunch of paint on it?
I was looking at hexa gear bikes, do they fit Mecha girls? Is there any other bikes for girls?
>>10422094hexa gear stuff is 1/24 scale, the bikes would be too small for md/fag size stuff (which is more like 1/10-1/12 scale size). the "handscale" fags are about the same size as a hexagear governor though so those would work
>>10422094maisto for 1/12 realstic bike
Bootleg susanowo is here, I'll get her built tonight and give my impressions.>>10422094The Bandai Wheel is a good fit for MDs and FAGs. It's massive for Governors but just right for them.
>>10420902>SusanowoNow Ive got an idea for a custom. Guess Ill go buy this girl
>>10422150Aren't scale replicas of realistic vehicles hard to make and require quite a bit of glue?>>10422190I couldn't find what a bandai wheel was, but I found a MSG bike, I think it should fit due to it being an MSG.However I'll just have to cope with Blue/Purple since black is out of stock
>>10422202Woops, I meant to type Bandit Wheel, not Bandai Wheel
Shockingly not shit, definitely feels like a bootleg but the overall kit feels okay. That stomach piece will not go on for the life of me however, I think there's a molding issue on one of the female ports on the piece itself, but that should be cementable I think. This is actually my first experience with the new body, did not realise how thick she was gonna feel, absolutely need to grab a proper one soon. I'd show off the arms and legs, but I have unfortunately cut myself while building, and bled on it, so I must go prepare in case it comes alive and tried to bootleg me to death.
>>10422202>Aren't scale replicas of realistic vehicles hard to make and require quite a bit of glue?They're diecast toys, not models.And the scale is absolutely perfect for figmas and things in that general scale.
>>10422082bandai seal of quality
>>10422409thanks god figma take a note
>>10422373Thanks for the tip, I bought one for starters since it's like half the price of any koto bike scale, and will probably look better than what I can make
>>10421308where to buy those waterslides? Any recommendations for Sousai specifically?
>>10422538Those are premade facesets from Muscuto. His last sale just ended but I guarentee he'll have faces available during the next sale. Not sure if he ever sold decals by themselves.
>>10422262>bled on itIt needs more blood to come to life
>>10422213Anon, why do you hate fix posed kits? Did someone shove one up your ass when you where young? There is what, three on there? Its just some dumb shit bandai makes for children calm down.
>>10422262That looks comically bad. That is a hell of a lot of uneven molding.>>10422437>looks at Yomi and act mode girlsYup. Checks out.
>>10422644I think he used to judging by his old catalog, but he probably decided to just sell the complete face plates instead
>>10422709Fuck off coomer
>>10420902Which version of her is better, anyway - black and red, or blue and white? I like the first one's color scheme more (and I love that eyepatch), but the flames look badass on the blue. If I were to chase down one, which should it be?
>>10422789Probably the blue. Other than it being a color variant, it gives a new weapon (the dual swords) and looks cooler with all the equipment imo.
>>10420508>>10420509>>10420510>>10420512lookin like a lazy kitbash desu
>>10422644does he make faces for just frame arms, megami device or for sousais too?
>>10423159These right here
>>10423006Personally I perfer the og one. Blue too tacky and I want the plain big sword without the flames.
How compatible is pic related to Megami device Baselard? I know she have the same height to 30ms but I never built one
>>10423185Same 3mm hip bar pegs and 3mm upper arm pegs, different armpit ball/socket diameters, neck peg, and wrist pegs.Bandai mostly recycled their Figurise joints in the 30MS so most of it isn't cross compatible with Kotobukiya kits except for anything using 3mm pegs/sockets.
>>10422082It came like that.No way in hell I'd try my hand at painting one of these things. Don't have the patience or skill.
>>10422789I prefer the original, Souen is just too much of a clusterfuck with all the flames for my taste.Or maybe I'm just coping hard because I got my preorder on the original in before everything in Europe saw a massive price hike and Souen is now almost twice the price I paid for my original.
>>10423402>GreedShe should've been fat like a whale not riding a whale.
>>10423522Hopefully Sloth is on the chunkier side
>>10423522lipo loons are worse than feet fiends
Who's your favorite 30 minute sister?
>>10421557Over a day now, nothing at allFucking bandai
>>10421546>>10421557>>10423584I managed to get both of the body sets, but not Neverlia herself. It's a real crapshoot.
>>10423006>>10423476Ultimately ended up getting Souen - mostly because she's easier to track down, apparently. She has some cute face plates, though, and the flame effects look pretty cool (also, I 'm pretty sure they're detachable, do if it's too much of a clusterfuck, I can always take them off). One more question, unrelated to Susanowo - is there any significant difference between SOL Raptor and the Strike Raptor variant (other than color and new hair options, obviously)? I only have the original Hornet and Roadrunner, and want a Raptor to complete the trio. I like the colors on the Strike Raptor, but is she worth the higher price?
>>10423813It's just the colors and Hornet's hair parts, afaik.
Has anyone ever made any clothes for their Megami/30MS? I recently inherited a sewing machine and I've been thinking about it but haven't been autistic enough to get around to it yet
>>10423747Hmm. Just got four more Neverlia this morning... and a total of three of each body.
>>10423613She isn't lettuce
>>10423853Made, no, but I bought some recently. They're expensive, but the PIZZA and NICENICENICE sold me.
>>10423522If they were to make a fat one it would have been Gluttony. Also possibly sloth but we've seen the concept art and the big one there is hopefully going to be the bear mech.
>>10423967Anon... i... >>10419441
yuki best girl don't @me
>>10423747I got Neverlia and the Chaser set, but not the evil one.
>>10423901Cute, yeah prices on doll clothes and stuff like that are always high, if I get some time this weekend I'll try to get an outfit thrown together I guess, it's been years but I know how to sew so hopefully I can make something decent
Nervalia + Chaser + Evil + Spinatio (reaper)-- a succubus build that took me four kits to make. Not particularly creative but I like how it turned out.
>>10424358Also, anybody know the best way to tighten up joints, specifically the crotch bars on megami device? I took my Susanowo out of storage since I'm building Souen this week and Regalia goes up for PO in about an hour, and her legs are super loose. Do modeling stores still sell graphite powder?
>>10424358>>10424360Just a snap build at this point, I'm thinking of giving the dark armor bits an enamel black coat and accenting with purple.
>>10423184While I did recommend souen, I do like the colors of the original more. Souen's base form uses too much blue for me. I wish the arms and legs were white.On the other hand, I do like the armed form of souen more. All those clear blue over-the-top flame parts give me that [Limit Break] transformation feel if you know what I mean.
New Susan up on HLJ.
>>10424417>>10424426Preordered!! She's SO FUCKING CUTE
>>10424360Glue the joints holder in place, cut off the pegs and apply some super glue to the sides. It makes the joint drumb tighter and removable. It's also helpful for painting, and also works with muscuto's Susanowo core joint.
>>10424417Up on Amiami. Actually managed to get her this time despite missing Amaterasu.
>>10424417Preoders closed now, glad I got mine in
>>10423980Oh...Well, fuck. That earlier conversation makes so much more sense now.
>>10424417Still up on Hobby Searchhttps://www.1999.co.jp/eng/m/10985880
>>10419441You know, swapping the bear for a rhino actually makes sense when you look at the direction they took Greed in >>10423402 - the rhino is the biblical Behemoth to Greed's whale's Leviathan. Now we just need someone to have a big bird/griffin to be the Ziz.
Wanted to see how my girlpla looked together so I set them up for a quick group shot. I just got into these a few months ago but I'm having so much fun. I appreciate all the extra parts some of these kits come with, it's allowed me to frankenstein together some girls using additional option parts. >>10415512Arcanadea is my favorite line, looking forward to getting the new devil girl.
>>10424426>>10424417Not really feeling this one. I dont know, cause I liked amaterasu
>>10423853I only did thighhighs for Innocentia and Hres from actual pantyhose and skirt from isolation rubber. Pretty fun experience.
Mentioned Hres in thighhighs.
>>10424640Group shots are always nice.
>>10424909I personally don't like this direction of making kits more and more overloaded with decorative elements while pumping the price to absurd levels. These kits already hit 100€ mark and it's going to be a lot worse.
>>10424924Except both these kits are about $60 if you don't pay scalper prices
>>10424928he's an eutard, even if they don't buy from domestic scalpers (and every eu store scalps anything non-bandai hard) they have to deal with import taxes so it still comes out to like €90 even when ordering from japan
Bros the ups is holding my Neverlia hostage
>>10424931My latest Megami Device kit was the equivalent of 50 Euros including shipping from Japan. I was lucky and didn't get taxed, my country is usually a bitch when it comes to taxing parcels. It usually does suck though, yes.
thanks to technology you can talk to shinki nowhttps://youtu.be/LoxsKWaMvkk
>>10424924The new Susanowo is cheaper than the original one though, what the hell are you talking about?
>>10425080>1 hour ago>8 viewsIs this yours?
>>10424640VERY cute anon. You need to upgrade your potato camera, for Yuki's sake
What's the best thicker thigh alternative for Megami Device? my konkon is looking a little scrawny...
>>10425206That’s arnval anon’s channel so yeah it’s probably hisAre you some kind of fucking tourist?
>>10425221The official thicker thighs upgrade kit might work.
>>10425080Just create your own chatbot at character.ai already dude. You can "talk" to any of your "girls" now
>>10424417These fucking shits why the fuck do they put shit on their front page if they are going to ignore these??? FUCK I'm checking the main page like a retard everyday
>>10425449They won't erp with you
>>10425474Damn, and here I was blowing chunky loads for coomer gen
>>10425474that's what kobold ai is for
>>10425221For small mds, Sophia. For AUV style girls like Susanowo and Amaterasu the muscuto round thighs.
ShowZ has regalia up for preorder. Will probably be around 85$ but shipping is included.
How are the 30MS twins?Are they good?
>>10425618No. The torsos are flat out bad, the faceplates are fairly ugly, and the limbs are marginally worse than the other girls. The only girl who is actually worse is Taisha. Bare in mind this is totally subjective and you might find charm in them. If your solely looking for a loli type kit go for one of the chitocerium kits. Urania is a blast and so are their twins.
>>10425221If you really want to change it up completely you can trim the torso you have there and just strait up use the AUV lower body. That's what I did here with my Lancer, though her arms are also rebuilt from a Susanowo's arms as well.
>>10425872>Madoka not using buster sword msgWhat a waste
>>10425884Planelegs, is that you?
>https://twitter.com/gsc_kahotan/status/1659031053661622273Kancolle plamo coming upI hope they make Kashima
>>10425945>start with one of the most boring boatsfuck, what is next Fubuki?
>>10425872This pic is cute.>I have no idea what I'm doing oh well here I come
>>10425945My wallet may be in danger and these aren't even the right boats.>>10425953She's popular though, right?
Anyone use these metal joints? Don't they wear out the plastic faster?
Susanowo Orders open again for those who missed out.https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10985880
>>10426069Waiting for the blue variant. I do like this more than the original, though
>>10425945Azur Lane please
>>10425945All I really want is Prince of Whales from Azure Lane.
>>10425945Are they going to be articulated kits or static kits? Know the latter is seemingly becoming a thing.That said, fuck them for starting with such a boring choice. Makes me glad I picked up the Madhands Tenryuu kit now.
>>10426280no one fucking cares and tenryu kek
>>10425945Its been a year since i looking at KC shit, Did they updated Atago or Takao yet?Kinda interested if those two were made
>>10421744she's inspired from the Macross Delta episode where the gang go undercover in some cat people planet, but yes you are right none of them have long ears like that
>>10425207Yeah, bad camera combined with bad lighting makes for stinky pictures. One of these days I want to take a couple figures outside for pictures.
>>10416782which one is this?
>>10426570Hell of a Coomer toy
>>10425945I thought Kancolle was finally dead and that everyone had went back to idols and horse fucking?
>>10426630turns out people still want to cum on all 3
>>10424784She looks like an overdressed chuni. I think it works well, and the extra parts will look great on the og version as a clusterfuck full equip version.
>>10425945Wow maybe the nep guy will get what he asked for
>>1042522130MS are thicker but have less articulation
>>10426280everybody fucking cares and tenryu kek
>>10426630Not until we get a Tenryuu action figure or model.
>>10427158Noone will ever care about bert
Just sharing my most recent snap build, I really wish the option bodies werent so enticing for 30MS Im debating buying multiples of different girls just so that I have the standard build AND the option bodies as different figures at the same time. Its so damn tempting.
>>10426906Kind of insane to think we got this far and still going.
Are Chinese kits super janky?I started building one and a lot of parts aren't as seamless as Bandai's or Koto's.
>>10427158based taste.>10427161exact, fuck bert
>>10415508Why is amaterasu regalia release date set but no solo amaterasu like Susanowo auv??
>>10427490There is only Amaterasu Regalia
>>10427490Auv Amaterasu is currently burning in the strongest fires lit in development hell so that the best model kit can be created. Please understand.
>>10420211I've devolved into a massive snapshitter over the years. There's occasion where I'll do some color correcting but otherwise it's straight out the box bay-beeee.
>>10420211Nub clean, panel line, and MAYBE some color correcting and decals. Like the other anon said, I have tons of kits, if I painted them all I'd go bonkers. Oh, and if I'm not a really lazy bastard, some matte top coat.
How do I cope with the desire to buy more and more kits for mixing and matching parts?Bought blue Susanowo kit recently - good build, but accessories are a bit too busy for my taste. also was disappointed that the transparent "monster" hands are don't have a nor,al hand joint but just a peg.
>>10427554tbqh, I've soured on articulated wrists a bit over time-- just one more joint to worry about getting weaker, and static hands hold weapons more securely.As for the desire for more plastic TnA-- can't help you there. I just preordered two Regalias and am already looking at bits and clothes for them. It's a sickness.
>>10427365Not at all. It's Bandai. They can pump out 10x more variations in a month without notification.
is it really so difficult to get shoulders right? jesus
>>10427397They require a bit more effort due to the amount of shit you need to fix. On the other hand their kits give you way more extra parts than you'll ever need, so a fuck up here or there isn't the end of the world.My only complaint is that they undergate parts on the runner that don't particularly need to be undergated
This is up for PO on amiami, along with a couple others. Decent price and jackets like these look great on MD/shinki/30MS.
>>10427709Generally how much is shipping from amico for something small like these articles of clothing? I wanted to get the cape but never ordered from them before
>>10427709I think that outfit looks pretty cute but it's like 10k for the full thing
>>10427721I generally do DHL and that's by weight and dimension, I think? Stuff like this is like 3k, but thats pretty much gonna be the standard for markup aftermarket anyways.
>>10427732I assume that's for like the smallest box, I guess I should look for some more articles of clothing before shipping
Feels nice to go back to an old idea and give it a bit of spitshine now I've got an airbrush, clear pink suits her much more than the purple. Definitely need to redo some of the gold pieces on her and decide what colours I want for the clear purple pieces Koto never did a proper transparent runner for.Still waiting on an actual new Materia kit too, hurry up Kotobukiya.>>10427721You could try getting them from ShowZ/Gundamit. Shipped from China so it ends up being pretty cheap.
>>10427530They clearly don't want to damage sales of the Regalia form, expect more news on full Amaterasu around December or so. If you want development hell look at the ebikawa pair that have been teased at two hobby shows then never again.
>>10427530Also, current Amaterasu is a super extensive kit, she has a fair bit more bulk than Susanowo did.
>>10427801I think those ended up as the Sugumi Kanagata duo.
>>10427927Sugumi is an AGA crossover girl and has nothing to do with the Ebikawa-designed duo.
>>10425763>and so are their twins.I just looked them up and they're what I have been looking for, thanks anon.
>>10427989Even if they aren't related they would probably end up looking very similar. They share design elements and both Sugumi kits were also designed by him.
>>10427806might be toriwo talking out of his ass
>>10427927>Sugumi duoAnon, that's just the same character in a diferent costume... and she's from a game, not an original like the clear parts girls.
>>10428231it gets cuter with every new edition to the series
>>10427397>same anonAs my first chinese kit I'm beginning to regret preordering Yefuna if this is how chinese kits areJust snapping the parts together stresses the plastic already
>>10426587You know it.
>>10428405That's a True Model kit. If you do not pour blood, sweat and tears then you never really made a model.
>>10428451The chinese kit builders are insane, I cannot begin to fathom how they can get a sanding sponge into some of these tight areas cause of all the little sharp angles and curves.I mean I guess shame on me for not recognizing it wouldn't snap. What's done is done, I'll just cement the front and never show the back side of the leg.
New Fumika thread!>>10428862>>10428862>>10428862
>>10426906strange how Color B has so few models, while color C has so many considering Japan. Not that I mind, the brown girls are all cute, and it probably means they're selling well if Bandai is pumping out more.
