There's a set of decals that came with the MG Sword/Launcher Strike that I have no idea how to put on. Doesn't look like stickers and the material feels plastic-y to the touch. Any quick advice how to apply those on?

Also, what are the tools used to sand off the protruding nurbs when they are cut off from the runner?

Sandpaper?

But I don't use them. I just use nail clippers to clip off remaining pieces.

More Arios + GN Archer

Spoiler for Pic:
Oh Yeah! GN Archer is definitely feminine alright! Marie is SO piloting it!!!

P.S. Can anyone see what looks like a cockpit hatch? And what's the pink "thing" that's sticking out of GN Archer's chest? And do you think that the GN Archer has beam sabers?

I'm under the impression that the pink part on the GN Archer's chest IS the cockpit hatch

As for beam sabers...



Also, possible location of extra weapons, possibly beam cannon (note that the black part of the pods slide down)?



The GN Archer IS an improved Tail Booster, which had two cannons...

Spoiler for Size:
Verde Buster certainly does make the original Buster Gundam look a little bland, doesn't it?

If Marie is the pilot, then why didn't she pilot it a few episodes back when Arios launched with it? Who was in it back then?

No one, likely. They probably just docked it onto the Arios for testing purposes when the attack hit, and he just launched with it. It can probably act like the Tail Booster and Tail Missile/Bomb Pods--the pilot of the Gundam can operate it alone. Likely, its the MS form of the GN-Archer that requires a pilot.

Those are probably dry transfer decals. There is a faq on how to apply them.

Scroll down to dry transfer decals.

those are a form us sticker or like those rub on tattoos, you have to cut around the edge with scissors leave a bit of room around the marking to hold on to. Then get some scotch tape and stick the decal to it then place it where you want it to go on the model then use something with a nice edge to scratch the print on to the model.

1. cut around the decal
2. place tap on top of the decal
3. place decal on model
4. scratch the decal onto the model

you should also do a few test applications first to get the idea of how it works, because once its on you cant take it off with out messing it up.

hope i explained it well enough

HGUC Blue Destiny Unit 3: I like it just because it is a completely generic representative of the RX lineage of Gundams. It has a boxy appearance that makes it look like a four-limbed tank, nice and militaristic.

HGUC Advanced Hazel: A strange-looking Gundam, with the main body being dark blue Titans colors contrasting with the white add-on parts. Obviously from the RX lineage, but also obviously not designed by Okawara. Two extra arms on the white front skirt pack, a white sensor module on the head, and an awesomely mismatched shield booster system.
