Well, part of is probably because in the animes, the beams are "flowing" (I mean they move constantly) while the effect parts on a model are always static.

@optics. Do you mean you're gonna make it as if it were a real scythe (like the Forbidden)? That would look nice on Ole Grim.

alright guys, i need your help... i cant decide which kit i should get next^^

here is what i have right now:
master grades
aile strike
unicorn
sinanju
strike freedom
exia
00[Q]
shin musha
wing zero custom

no grade
launcher strike
buster

also PG astray, HG ginn high maneuver and real grade gundam

i think ill get one or two master grades this month and definitely deathscythe hell EW next month!

i was thinking about destiny, hyaku-shiki (i just love the gold plated looks of it and ive heard that bandai did a really great job at hiding the nubs from the sprues!), wing gundam, astray blue frame and sword impulse. those kits are in a price range that would allow me to buy 2 of them this month^^ or maybe one more expensive kit like the mg hi nu?
or are there any other recommendations? or maybe i missed a "must have" kit that i just didnt see yet^^

thanks!

edit: it doesnt HAVE to be a master grade of course. recommendations for next month are appreciated as well ;D

Just an idea, probably won't go through with it. Just something I wanted to throw out there that someone else might want to try.

For me personally the freedom would be best (not in your list but hey), but going by what others (specifically Syd From Gaijin Gunpla) have said, the Sword Impulse is the best.

Hope this helps!

Wow, nice. They're all just decal-ed right? not painted (except the SF and F's wings if i remember correctly). You did some nice poses (I noted all of them, except for the wing suits at the end, hace that "one-leg-stretched-and-one-bended" pose for the legs :P) and I loved hearing all the OP's from the animes.

Shame for the scythe if you don't do it, I'd have loved to see that.

BTW, I LOL'ed when Rhytm Emotion started at the end.

The Strike Freedom is a great kit. Goes great with the Aile Strike.

I haven't built the Unicorn or Sinanju, but if you get one of those, you might as well get the other.

Yup, all decal-ed, not painted. Didn't paint the SF and F's wings. I really didn't like that clip with Lacus and both Freedoms, but I threw it in cuz I already recorded. As for the ending, yeah, thats my next gunpla video.

Then I mistook you for someone els who also showed pics of those two...
As for your next vid: Are you gonna wait until the new Ver. Ka. kits come out (D-Hell and Shenlong) and is the Anime version Wing also a contender?

Edit: A few pages back I said I was going to buy a HG Zabanya. I've changed my mind and went for a NG 1/100 Dynames instead. It'll come in at the end of the month, can't wait!

aha I misread your list. I looked at it as what you want, not what you have.

Anyways, that Sword Impulse is definitely the way to go. I don't have it myself, but its probably the best looking suit that Shinn piloted. I love the design and colors. Destiny looked terrible to me.

The only thing I painted were the thrusters in the back for both, which aren't visible. Other than that, everything is original. It could be the lighting... IDK.
Painted the back thrusters, but not the wings. The thrusters were blue, had to paint them red.

I'm just gonna do the Ver. Ka suits. I want to look at it as 2 down, 3 to go ($150). Not, 2 down, 8 to go.($400).

Then I remembered it almost correctly :P And that method is way cheaper (buying 10 MG's ouch that's pricy)

As for Destiny, the colors were dull but those wings!

Can you put all striker-packs on a single strike? You know, right shoulder Launcher, left for sword and Aile on the back (no gun/shield)

Awesome stuff. I can make out Exia, 00 Qan(T), Garazzo and Harute. Have no idea what kitīs made the head and torso, though.
