I just watched some reviews about RG... How flimsy or weak are their joints? One reviewer got bob of its thumb broken and replacement is a $$$ pain.

Anyway - I don't suppose the new HG METEOR exclusive is a new mold, right? I'm assuming it just comes with new parts to fit the RGs, but I'm not sure.
Maybe you can ask duotiga since he usually own those online exclusive items. Or you can search for a through review of it.

They are noticeably so, caution is advised.

And yes, I've had a couple parts broken by now.

yeah, that is definitely well made. The last foto is a comparison with the normal MG right? going by that, he's added and improved a lot of details. More than "just a coat of spraypaint"

And did anyone else lol at the eruption of hate aimed at Nike for his spamtastic comment?

Probably not. I'm still waiting from Bandai on more MG from 00 kits to be honest. Age MG's.. Yes I want more, but I think they'll trickle them out through 2013 and maybe early 2014.

I know the modeller added a ton of new details, my "coat of spray paint" comment was just part of my "eruption of hate".

Anyway, early reviews for the HGUC Byarlant Custom are out - looks freaking amazing. I don't think it uses stickers at all, Bandai really went all out on this one.

It does uses stickers. mostly for the red thrusters in the shoulders and other parts

As a random side note I really hope we get a MG Providence, my interest in the suit was re-sparked seeing the remastered version of it launching while Genesis fired

IIRC Bandai released a promotional silhouette pic of Providence some time ago. Its been posted in this thread some pages back. Dont know if Bandai will go through with it or will chicken-out like in the case of MG Gafran.

I just realized that, but nevertheless those red stickers can be easily omitted/painted over. Still looks awesome.

A MG Providence would be cool. If only they'd give us a MG Justice to match, then the trio would be complete.

Anyone know if that painting trick with silver as a base then white works with gundam markers?

Working on HGUC Kshatriya, anything I need to be careful of on that kit?

(Guess which horrible part I'm working on)

As much as I'd like to see some GSD suits get the RG treatment, they're unlikely to happen unless we see a GSD remaster, probably next year. A safer bet is, say, Providence?

Ah, those annoying Sleeves markings. I use a white paint marker to add details on some of my kits, and I'm planning to do the same for the Rozen Zulu. I use a few layers so I don't use silver as a base, but I guess I'm an amateur painter.

Anyone know a good tool with a sharp/fine tip that helps scrape away paint/gundam marker that is not sharp enough to damage plastic and maintain its point?

(trying to clean excess on Sleeve parts ;_

Oh yeah the silver base with gundam markers work, tried it out, way less coats of white required
