If they're planning to continue the MG SEED line, my bets would be on an Impulse variant (Sword would be very nice), or a MG Legend. Any such plans might be sidetracked by the 30th Anniversary coming up though...

And with the Gundam 00 wave still strong, a MG Exia or 00 might be of more priority than SEED Master Grades.

Has anyone's Gundam Rasiel shipped yet at HLJ?

Though I preordered it (2), on the listing page of Rasiel it is written that it has been discontinued and mine isn't in the state of processing. Has it arrived yet at HLJ or not? Or else I'm screwed big time.

Question:

I'm going to get a HG 00 and Cherudim, and I was thinking, how do I paint those clear parts (the blue and red ones) on the forehead and weapons?

I can understand from the color guide, it says Clear Blue and Clear Red, but how exactly do I apply them? I use handbrush by the way.

Would appreciate any tips/recommendations.

There's nothing special about it, just paint them the way you would. Tamiya sells clear enamel paints that are perfect for coloring such transparent parts (be sure to buy those that read "Clear Red" and "Clear Blue"). Best to paint them thinly, since you only want to tint the clear parts.

Thank you very much for that recommendation, I'll look up those colors since I do not have any of those clear paints.

Lastly, with those clear paint, I just brush them lightly on both sides of the clear parts aye?

Enamel paint is troublesome when you want to remove it, whereas with acrylic paint you can remove it easily. Clear paints are also harder to brush and since it's easier to make mistakes on clear parts I'd recommend acrylic paint. Besides, Tamiya has clear blue and clear red in their acrylic paint line.

Ah. Only have clear enamel in the stores I go to here. Explains why I'm not seeing any paint thinner/removers for enamel

So I guess I'll be taking Tamiya Acrylic ''Clear Red'' and ''Clear Blue'' then.

Enamels are far better to apply with a brush. Acrylics dry too early and let marks on the paint.

It's true that enamel paints are a better brush paints when applying solid colors, but clear paints are different.
