Yeah, I was thinking of doing that too. flatten the covers with boxart, keep the manuals and policaps

LOL,its GN Drives are gone.But ahhhhhhhhh,this guy knows his mechanics stuff well,he put a new Drive at the back where the Condenser was.Looks similar to the Ahead's one.

Again,beautiful piece of work.I've gotta learn how to do this.
Uhm, it's not the masurao. See the parts where the sideskirt things hang from? it's the susanowo. and why 3x3? it only has one tau drive.

Well,the custom model has 1 Tau Drive at the back,but the storyline official one have 2 Tau drives at the waist binders,both the Masurao and Susanowo.[The location wasnts officially confirmed until recently in the HG Trans-Am Susanowo manual]

I just said it was Masurao because bhus said it was a Masurao.

Yes,while the confirmation only came recently,its been long speculated because of THIS image from the last scene of S214.See the waist binders.

Speculation started with 3 actually but a sourcebook[MS Illustrated 09 I think] later mentioned that Masurao only had 2,so this seems to be the configuration left.Only after much later did the HG Trans-Am Susanowo manual[release recently] confirmed the same Drive number for Susanowo as well as the waist binder being the actual location.

This is why I commended the Custom modeler earlier,because while he removed Susanowo's 2 Drives,he placed one on the back suggesting that he's aware of the mechanic details of the show.Canonicty isnt as important as aestatic beauty in custom mods,but I'd thought I'd praise him for making sure his suit has a Drive in the end,even if it isnt a significant point in custom modeling.From a 00 GN Mechanics perspective,his custom mod could still function properly because it has a drive,which is an important nice aestatic detail for those that are likes to micro analyse like me and are indeed familiar with 00 tech.

You noticed that, and yet missed the simplified horns and the non-TriPunisher chest and shoulders of the Masurao in the model (The Susanowo has more intricately designed horns and pivots on the shoulders). The entirety of the model is the HG Masurao alright, BUT with the Susanowo's sideskirt mechanism (and I see other parts kitbashed in, like on the crotch and the GN Drive on the back, probably from the HG Ahead).

......sheesh designers,if your going to create a variation thats mostly the same,at least keep the name.......>_>,Masurao was cooler as a name.

Then again,most of its main armaments was changed.

If you think it's bad in fiction, you'll be even more confused in real life: sometimes, the only way you'll know that a piece of equipment (whether firearms, armored vehicles, tanks, aircraft etc...) is a variant of something is through the model number and name, because most of the differences are internal, or otherwise so subtle that there doesn't seem to be any difference. In fact, two identical looking firearms are sometimes differentiated only by color, or worse only by their stamped markings which are hard to spot unless you look closely

Hey guys, quick modelling question, i'm trying to achieve a 'dark red' colour and i only use Tamiya spraypaints, i usually use Bright Red for my red parts but the i want to achieve a slightly darker red than the 'Bright Red.'

I looked at the tamiya website and i saw 'Mica Red', i recall that Mica spraypaints have a 'glittery' effect, is that true? What do you guys recommend?

The only thing i can suggest if you only use Tamyia spray paint is prime your pieces black and then use your red.

Anybody knows how to make Clear Pink?I need it to use it on my AD series models,some of their sabers dont look pink enough.[They look pink under bright light but alot like red when not immersed in one].And since the Tau models already use red,I dont want them to look too similar.

Thanks for tip Sworra, i'm kinda new to primers, i bought one a while ago but havent got around to using it yet, the one i bought is this one:

http://www.hobbyco.com.au/product/sh...php?plu=T87044

is that the right one?

In regards to making it dark red, i should prime the runners first, spraypaint it black, then spray it red (and maybe finish it off with a matt topcoat), is that pretty much it?

I simply spray on a _very_ light layer of Clear Red. Adding a tiny bit of Clear Red to Clear also works if you're handpainting, but achieving a uniform clear effect would be difficult because you're handbrushing unless you have godlike handbrushing skills.

If I'm understanding correctly, what you're saying is the beam blades are too dark. If so, it's impossible to lighten them because the more clear paint you add, the darker the colour will become. You'll have to put a base layer of white, then Fluorescent Pink which removes the clear effect altogether.

Yes, that's Tamiya's primer you're having there. And Yes.

Sorry i should of elaborate a bit here, When i mentioned black, black being that it acts as a primer to make a different colour react different to a top layer of a different colour used. You can use a primer if you want. That primer you have in the link is for making paint stick better and identifing scratches and seam lines.

But if you want to get a dark red your black does go on first then you spray your red. Make sure you dont over do it on the red, spray the red lightly over the black until you get your desired affect. One other thing make sure your black is cured, Let your parts dry at least a day or two before you attempt the red.

Where in Australia are you from? You could probably find other spray paints other then Tamyia if your around major cities like Sydney or Melbourne. I know you can't ship sprays internationally but you can try with in your own nation.. I will try and help you out best i can since i have contacts within both major cities in Australia.
