Having just watched the first four episodes, I'll have to tell you that this is bunk. In the first three episodes, we get Ranka's first Vajra flashback, the Vajra singling her out for the first time,...

Those are the pics I'm scratching my head over. How does the butt end of that rifle fit between and underneath the arms, when the arms are connected directly to the chest section?

Also, the Battle...

Sometimes it seems like Gundam maintenance crews build new robots out of the scraps of the old ones for lack of spare parts. How they manage to actually improve on the performance with each new model...

Being the SFX-junkie that I am, I was sold on this after fifteen seconds. I'll endure even BAD harem comedy for that kind of animation, and this is better than average fare. In fact, not having read...

Almost. It's missing two pieces and three stickers - the light blue vinyl cables that go on the shoulders, the black stickers for the knee-mounted GN Condensers, and the big white sticker for the...

BTW, one thing that's struck me as odd for a bit - are there any other actual Gundams except the 00 Movie versions that don't have beam sabers in any form? Those are usually pretty much one of the...

I'm more interested in the backstory for the 00Q Full Saber than I am in the kit itself, given the role the 00Q plays in the movie. Then again, most of the 00V stuff has strange backstory...

Judging by the HG kits, Exia is hardly even related to the 00/00Q, while the other two have some substantial commonality or at least parts compatibility. 00Q uses the same legs and arms as the 00...

That kind of depends. What is the state of the kit right now? Is it painted, and if so, how (brush/airbrush, water/oil paint)?

Aside from the usual (sharp knife, clippers, fine sandpaper), you'll...

Don't care if it lacks posability and whatnot, it's big, has loads of detail, and a truckload of parts. It will take at least a week to build, and building it is the fun part!

Is there *any* hope...

I think I'd rather wait and see what the 00V version looks like before trying to permanently mod a 00Q - I hate ruining kits, I've spent way too much on regular plastic models that turned out crappy....

I usually test it by releasing the pressure on the part and seeing if it moves. If it does, hold it for a little longer. A couple of minutes is usually enough.

Don't dismiss the thinner just yet. The worst thing you can do when painting with enamels is let the paint go on too thick, since it'll take forever to dry - just a little thinner will completely...
