Dark purple? I call that brown . And yeah, it's horrid. For those who bought or will buy this kit, prepare your airbrush. You'll need them.

I agree. I almost do no painting unless required.

Yes, it's brown in my eyes too. Why do Bandai made it that way. It's HORRIBLE but not as much as HG Full Gransa (even though it's not dark blue anymore, at least it's still blue).

I really hope the Rozen Zulu and Age-1 Gransa are not a sign of a new era of Bandai slacking with their High Grade kits. The Rozen Zulu especially surprises me, given it looks like it's going to be a major suit for the next Unicorn episode I would have thought they would go the extra mile to make it accurate, rather than that glaring colour flaw.

The Age-1 also worries me, as the blue of the Gransa should be closer to grey to distinguish itself from the shade of blue already present on the original Age-1.

They've come so far with the HG line and I will be extremely disappointed if outright incorrect colours becomes standard again.

I can't get the point why the colors aren't the same. Aegis, Justice and Infinite Justice no grades have inaccurate colors. Is it cheaper for Bandai to make the Violet/Purple(whatever you wanna call it) to Brown and grayish blue of Gransa to Blue?

C'mon Bandai, provide us with answers so we will all be enlightened.

This is the last day of my vacation and here is my progress so far:

Spoiler for Body:


I curse those gold trims!!! MG Sinanju ver KA isn't for amateurs like me.

I think a troll dumped some paint into the injection machines to make the color wrong

Oh, btw, you shouldn't double post. It's kinda breaking the rules. Just a friendly advice . Please merge them into one post.

it's too red to be brown .. Brurple? Broed? Reowd?!

Prepare the airbrushes? Prepare the Napalm my friend, it'll be needed. i'll shower with it and wash it every night telling it it's not its fault.

Sarcasm aside, it's added to my backlog, i need to buy it so it can be put in the fancy bowing motion Angelo pulled at the end of UC ep5

Thanks man. But trust me, it ain't clean, at least the gold trims. It's my third time redoing the shield and looks like I'll have to repeat it again, LOL!

Third is semi-gloss. I think this is the one you've been looking for. Its shine is almost the same as a straight out of the box. It was once used by a modeler that he custom built. I believe it was MG DHell when it's not yet out and fooled a lot of people.

Fourth it pearl gloss. It's the same as gloss but with added pearl effect. You know, glittery stuff and whatnot.

See the pic for reference

I see. Thanks for the lesson! I'll pick one of those up in the near future and try it out.

A good friend of mine's not that into gunpla anymore, so he's parking his airbrush at my place for me to give it a try. Bring it on, HGUC Rozen Zulu!

Just a warning though, I started out as a straight build guy too. I have bought the polishing compound and has a wide range of sand papers. It worked WELL, I even think that the polishing compound was unnecessary. It's currently stocked for 3 years now and never had an opportunity of using it again. After doing so, I went on and try topcoating. I don't want my kits to get scratches and everything so topcoating it made sense. Tried it and next thing I know, I'm already doing some minor mods, even tried doing MG Justice myself but hasn't finished it for more than a year now. Point is, it's fun. Don't limit yourself, not unless you don't really have the time. ENJOY airbrushing (I don't have one, LOL!)

Besides the MG kits announced for 2013, what MG's do you think are likely to get a 2013 release? Also what MG kits would you be honestly surprised if we got it in 2013? List out 10 for each (likely and surprised to see).

No point in listing ten as we already now five releases so unless they double up on multiple months we won't even be getting that many new announced MG's.

The only thing I see as likely are 1/2 more Wing suits, likely Altron EW/Sandrock Kai/Heavyarms Kai. Wing Gundam Zero EW has a chance to be a suit they would double up on if they just repackage it like Wing Gundam EW before it. They could drop a Tallgeese II/Leo/OZ suit to use the Leo Frame, but I don't know if they will push the Leo Frame that hard when they still have the Kai's ready to go.

Given Destiny Remaster we could also see a Saviour/Legend/Providence release as well. I don't think we will see a steady stream of MG's from it as we saw from SEED, but I could be wrong.

Outside of these two the only thing I see as likely would be a Sazabi Ver Ka/2.0 and a Nu HWS.

The only thing I want is White Epyon, but I'm tend to doubt they jump to Frozen Teardrop this year for suit releases.

For Wing, I would like to see:

MG Wing Gundam Zero (TV) --> use frame from MG Wing Gundam (TV)
MG Wing GUndam Zero (EW) --> remastered release; use frame from MG Wing Gundam (TV)

* I just received my order with the MG Wing Gundam (TV) and a white Action Base 1 as well as 10 Real Touch markers....muahahhah

I would love to see these especially the a Sazabi 2.0 but damn these would be super expensive>_<

Couldn't say what I'd expect to see myself, I'm not good at it and part of me doesn't really pay too much attention or put too much thinking into as I've still got a huge back log of stuff to get let along think of whats to come.

What I'd like to see Bandai do tho is give me some more Crossbone Vanguard suits, be them MG or HG, rather like the them ones.

Yeah, the giant rifle and and shield of HWS alone will at least add extra 1000 yen to MG Nu Ka's price, and don't even ask me how expensive MG Sazabi Ka would be .

I agree. Instead of thinking too much of what kits to come, asking others about it, and putting on your wishlist again and again and again, why not enjoy what we already get and do something productive like, say, building your backlog of kits.

RX-93-ν2 Hi-ν Gundam, which it could have been animated.
1/100 Dynames took the longst to complete due to alot of paint work. Pure building the 1/100 MG strike noir took the longest.

Strike noir is a variant of the strike gundam, it's the bad suit in seed Stargazer. It's also my favorite alltime gundam
