I like what you did to Gale Strike's swords . Did you use Gundam markers for that?

Yup, i can't really paint with pencils so i use markers.

The swords were really too blue so i added some color .

You also might notice that i forgot to panelline his little square on the belt, i corrected that after the pictures were taken

Well, if you have paints, you can use brush for some difficult corners .

Oh yeah, when will you build your Zeta Karaba & RX-78-3? I'd love to see that .

As soon as i have time, unfortunately my job is quite demanding timewise. Next will the 1/144 HG 0 Gundam (blue red white color version) and after that i promised i would finaly build one of my waiting PG's during my summer holidays. But after that the scedule is still open .

I am a MG or 1/100 NG only guy, but those 6 kits I think are important to the story and probably won't get an MG or 1/100 NG treatment...

Maybe the Exia R2 as I've been saying here a lot, but if it does come, I will get it then. =D

Besides, HG kits seem like they'd be fun. Like SD in terms of complexity with a few more parts and most of the colors in plastic and not that many stickers.

Do people actually use like a toothpick to paint parts?

I can see how Avalanche Dash Exia HG has a lot of stickers. I have the Avalanche Exia 1/100 NG and it has a lot of stickers. I haven't built that one yet as w/ my other kits.

yes, it does. probably the most sticker heavy kit i have built so far :P but since i painted it i didnt use them^^
i used an airbrush by the way, toothpicks dont work in my opinion.

I guess I could get masking tape and use a paint brush. =)

Hey uh..

ScotchBlue Painter's Tape

Would that be a good alternative to use for masking paints...? The alternative being Tamiya masking tape...

i've no experience with tamiya's tape. been using some sort of paper-like tape all these while. it's not the best but it's the cheapest i find out there.

I only use Toothpicks for painting on small details like the pilot figures for example.

im happy with tamiya tape. works like a charm!
as far toothpicks, it works but there are better options. like those ultra fine brushes that you can get at gamsworkshop stores.

Well I mean I just got some ScotchBlue Painter's Tape and I'm hoping I could use it for masking GunPla pieces.

>_>

The Tamiya seems a bit expensive for what you get, and I haven't had the best luck with them in the past.

A possible spoiler: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.p...06399842781514

PG Unicorn? I really doubt it, though it's popular, I think it'll cost more than PG Strike Freedom and Bandai is cost cutting. Of course, unless they're becoming generous again

Also, HGAC? WTF? It makes this spoiler less convincing.

As if you had to wonder if it wasn't?

Let's see if we also get:

MG Age-2 Normal (White)
MG Genoace Custom
MG G-Exes
MG G-Bouncer
MG G-EXES JackEdge
MG Dark Hound

I suspect that MG Double Bullet, MG Age-3 Normal, MG Fortress, and MG Orbital will come out soon.

Orbital's shoulder thingies looks like weapons in gunpla. I'm sure the build would be great, but the MG Age-2 details feels more of a NG 1/100.

This on the other hand, is a 1/144 MG.

That MG AGE-2 is probably going to be my only MG AGE model.
