But just checking, should I get a breath mask for sanding nubs? Something like this-

I won't be doing any spray paint, and got halfway through assembling an HG before I remembered about that aspect. Or should I try that wet sanding mentioned earlier or just rely on cutters and hobby knife? Well, cutting my fingers doesn't sound good but better than breathing in too much dust.
No you won't need them, if your careful with how you go about it all and try to keep your head as far away as possible from the dust and stuff then you should be ok without any kinda masks.
But if you feel you don't want to take that risk then your best off picking up a box of medical face masks, they are good enough and cheaper and easier to wear.

The Sazabi is more fitting as a hero suit, imo. OTOH, the Nightingale is deliciously intimidating

Ok, thank you for the advice Bonta Kun and Skye629, I'll just be careful and keep that advice in mind. Probably should remember to open the windows more too.

Honestly I thought RE100 is basically "revived HG 1/100"

When is the last time we have HG 1/100?

The RE100 line though are for those designs that wouldn't have their own HG lines due to their obscurity, and would be financially dangerous to make as MG's as a result. Basically, they're not designs tied into any current franchise.

And 00 was the last time we got HG 1/100's.

So, I did a bit of panel lining tonight.

This is the GM Command Space Type, which was the 2nd kit I built. Back then, I still sanded down parts and shit... also the stains are from humidity. tl;dr, flat coat ASAP your white MS. I don't seem to have this issue with my Stark or ECOAS though...

Images
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

Verdict: Stick to Gundam panel lining marker, folks. I found that the inkflow was not as consistent, and could be irregular at times, whereas inflow on my gundam marker was steady and constant.

Also I've been trying out my Tamiya files. OH MY GOD. WHAT KIND OF TAMIYA SOURCERY IS THIS?! I just rub rub rub and the nub is FUCKING GONE. So fucking worth it. Very much looking forward to using all my toys on my MG Jesta next year.

Also MG Jesta + Red LED = EXAM Jesta. This is now my headcanon.

Actually those were technically NGs like SEED

The last time we got an actual 1/100 HG line was back in the 90's with Wing and X

I haven't checked this thread in awhile. Now that I'm back home and continuing Gunpla I should probably check it more often.

I'm currently trying to build the RG Exia Repair kit right now but this box has me puzzling.

Spoiler:


Spoiler:



Well, basically I'm not exactly sure what to do. This is the first time that I'm working on a modification kit.

It's basically that black box text there. It has the numbers of the instruction set which I assume are from the main RG Exia kit.

Is it basically telling me to "skip" those parts of the main text as I'm building my RG Exia or is it telling me to "reverse" the things I'm done on those steps. Considering the nightmare of a time I had on building the RG Exia....well I'm trying to avoid the same pitfalls especially since this is more limited in supply and way more expensive (relative to the amount of material you're actually getting)


I have a spare RG Exia kit anyways (specifically for the purpose of having an RG Exia Repair), so I'm fine building from scratch or modifying my existing one. But regardless I want to get this right so I'm trying to be as careful as I can here since.

I can understand the pictures mostly fine but I get the feeling that instructions are telling me something important before I'm supposed to proceed to the picture section so I'm trying to be as careful as I proceed, hence the thread. Anybody worked on a modification kit before?
