thats weird... but hey, they included the stickers and they have the right color so who cares^^

i dont have anything to build right now, too (except for an armored core model but i will paint that when it gets warmer again) and i think i wont buy anything for some time as well. i just dont feel like it right now :T i pre-ordered the MG duel, i think until that arrives i will make a gunpla break. maybe i will get a revell kit or something like that, they are cheap and some of them are really big so thats a plus over gunpla^^

i always wanted to make a diorama though... something with a RG-79(g) or a different kind of grunt machine... oh well, i will think about it.

What kind off non-gunpla kits do you buy? I collect some 1/72 aircraft and some 1/35 scale tanks myself.

I'm trying to make a diorama now for a Merkava. I'm using plaster from an art supply store to make the base and then probably make another one for my Gundam kits as well if it works.

Unpainted review of the HGUC Unicorn Banshee(unicorn mode) by Hacchaka.
I now have zero doubt that I like the Banshee more.

Here's the unpainted review of the Destroy mode of the Banshee from the same guy. Like the Unicorn mode Banshee, a sticker is used for that blueish black on the forehead.

Though I like the whole design of the Banshee and all but I have to ask, why bother putting that camera sensor in the mohawk even though there's still a horn blocking it in Destroy mode?

Now I'm not fan of the AGE -1 Titus, it honestly doesn't do anything that can I say anything good about however with all models they can be shown in a different light that can alter thoughts and opinions about them and I've seen the Titus in a different light.

HG 1/144 AGE-1 Titus Cannon - customized build

Note that it does take a customized to change my thinking, like it usually does but even so still not fond of the original design despite quite liking this.

Shoulder/back pack cannons are always a huge plus in my book

Hope to see more AGE custom builds, they are proving to be quite good base models for some pretty cool builds.

Frankly, that color scheme is very bizarre to me. White or black are usually good colors to go all out in, but that deep navy blue and gold just don't sit well with me when compared to the much more subdued appearance of the Unicorn. I tend to think of blue as something that is used to compliment either red (or vise-versa) or black (again, or vise-versa) but having just blue and them some gold... meh.

Anybody thinking that Master Grade Strike Gundam's head is ugly or is it just me? I prefer the High Grade 1/100 design so much more over this... ridiculous, isn't it?

Well, then it's just me, but when I look at the vents on the head (where "nose" and "mouth" would be located if Gundams had those :]), those are much smaller in 1/100 HG and 1/60 Perfect Grade. MG vents are plain ugly to me... Not mentioning the design of panel lines (too few of them, which makes the model seem plain and uninteresting without decals). I somehow feel glad that they went for the different direction with Impulse and Justice, making them slimmer and more graceful in the process.

Just hopin' that Duel does not suffer the same fate Strike does. Seems not as its head looks ok and has no vents to meddle with ;D

Aside from the ‘mouth-vents’ that you mentioned, other notable differences is that the MG has a ‘bump’ on its forehead/V-fin that blocks the middle of Strike’s eyeline.
Spoiler for MG:

Spoiler for 1/100:

That makes the eyeline of the MG even more hidden than its 1/100 counterpart. Also, MG Strike's head is overall narrower than the head of the 1/100 Strike.

So I bought these custom feathers for the MG Wing Zero Custom. Anyways, I have this issue with models that have "wings" like Wing, Wing Zero Custom, Freedom, Strike Freedom, etc. They all seem to suffer from looseness because the plastic plug inside the plastic port just doesn't give a tight enough hold. Was wondering if it would be wise to add glue/cement to the plug, let it dry and then plug it in so that the "wings" can be held up without falling.

Eventually is my guess.

I would guess that we're gonna get a MG Wing Zero (TV), and then eventually a MG Wing Zero Custom 2.0...

What would they change with the existing MG Wing Zero Custom?

1. full inner frame
2. use newer MG hands
3. more clear parts
4. better color separation
5. improve joints like the backpack joint as well as the loose feather issues

Is it possible to at least remove the 1/100 HG Strike's head and put it on the Master Grade? Would it fit at all?

Wing Zero TV for now is the ONLY kit that I'd really like to get from Wing, with the exception of Talgeese III maybe

It will surely fit, but the problem is whether the 1/100 head will fit the MG's body proportion or not? If it's looks good, then it's perfect.

@optics: If you want to give the hinges of your wings some glue, you may want to use the not-superglue-ish glue so that the hinges can still moves. Btw, are the custom feathers any good? From your photo, it looks way thinner than the original feathers. How much does it cost?
