i FINALLY got the letter from the customs office so that i could pick up my OO raiser today!^^
gonna build it later today.
but just by browsing through the manual a little its pretty clear that this is basically the OOQ with a few changes here and there XD but in my opinion that isnt a bad thing. the QAN[T]is amazing! and it explains why the OO raiser got so much praise recently.

So I finally got my 00Q today, and i've never built a model before, but the instructions are understandable.

I just need to know if the plier I have is acceptable to be used to nip the parts or not. I'd rather not buy a new one and would prefer to use the current one I have.

i dont thing thats gonna work. the pliers that you have are blunt and can only crush stuff.
you need a side cutter:


they arent expensive, about 3 bucks for a cheap one. id get a good one though! its worth it. with a good side cutter you basically have no excess plastic one the pieces that you would have to cut off with a knife!
i got mine from a gamesworkshop and i could be happier! cost me about 8€, thats about $10


edit:
i just built the O raiser sidebinder just to test if i get the NG 1/100 OO LEDs to fit in there.
it does work but you have to alter them quite a lot to make them fit. but once they are in everything works properly^^

and done^^


this kit is pretty awesome! great articulation, tons of accessoires and what really surprised me, there are almost no balance issues! its not leaning forwards here, it can stand upright with the O raiser attatched^^ that spretty impressive!
im also very pleased with the GN sword III. the connection to the arm is rock solid and it wont fall off at all, even with the huge effect part for the raiser sword. it pops out of the peg on the hand all the time but the connection to the arm is strong enough by itself.

A sidecutter that doesn't leave excess plastic? I did not know such things even exists!!!! And it would be my dream to have one!!!!

You know any examples of such a piece? I would like to get them online prefably.

This one is a must

A little expensive but for tiny pieces and to save time (I used to clean my pieces with a hobby knife but not anymore)

Games Workshop make their own range of tools specifically for modelling. So if you buy their clippers, for example, the clipper head is shaped so you can get right up next to the part and clip off just where it meets the tree, leaving no/negligible excess plastic. As opposed to using a pair of general-purpose clippers, which aren't optimised for such a thing.
Thier craft knife is quite nice too. Very sharp blades, ergonomic handle and all that. Games Workshop's stuff is quite expensive, but good quality.

Speaking of which, is that a site or a real shop?

Both. They have a website you can mail order from, Games Workshop stores dotted around the world, and a lot of independent hobby shops stock their stuff as well.

Edit: WIP pics on my Virsago:
Spoiler for Virsago:


And a few little extras:
