The PG Strike Rouge is abit different than what you would say as just another recoloring kit, even though it is just another recolored strike:confused: ,, confusing,, huh? Well,, the MAIN difference is The Strike Rogue is a AILE/skygrassper package SET,, it only comes in that package. While the normal Strike only comes in seperate sets of the PG Gundam and PG AILE pack/sky grasper. It's not the same as the PG MKII and PG MKII Titans, which are really just recoloring with no extras and no super gundam.

Also Strike Rouge is still pretty popular, much more so than Impulse.

I feel sorry for Impulse's poor sales,,, so I brought a 1/200 HCM pro version. Now it's even more mess up since it's placed among my other STRIKEs that's in 1/100 MG scale and PG 1/60 scale, along with 1/100 MG Freedom and 1/144 GFF Freedom. My 1/200 hcm pro Impulse must be screening "why don't you just kill me now":eyespin: My 1/200 HCM pro Destiny is on it's way so maybe it can even it out somewhat. Destiny took on a bunch of oversize Destroys so it should be ok , I guess.

r the gundams on dalong.net painted? It seems they only did the outlines with a black marker

Sety 2006-01-15 17:37

Most of them are done with bare minimum, they're supposed to show how they look right out of the package for the most part.

nightbringer360 2006-01-15 17:40

Dalong panels and decals his models, but otherwise assembles them out of the box.

MrNotalk 2006-01-15 19:04

he also do very very little bit of painting too,, on tiny small parts from time to time

Yes, most notably his 1/144 models, he painted quite a number of them. I paint my 1/144's too, mainly because they look so odd if you don't :heh:

About that chrome finish Freedom kit, there is a Gundam chrome paint marker that would go well with it. I have one of those, and it's really a good substitue for grey

well if you look close you can tell where it's been touched up...
I once built HD Mazinger Z and it has shiny metal finish on the parts supposed to be white and once you took off from the runner there's no way you can hide unless you paint the whole thing - which defeat the purpose to shell out the extra for this kit when you can get cheaper non plating MC version... :(

srb 2006-01-16 15:23

The Hyaku-Shiki parts are attached to the sprue at the bottom/inside of the parts? So there aren't any visible traces when you assemble it?

I've been thinking of getting one, but I wouldn't want to repaint the entire thing in gold. Ugh, painting gold.

Syn13 2006-01-16 16:30

I have the HGUC(1/144) version of the Hyaku Shiki and to be honest, they aren't really noticable. Of course if you look closely you can tell but from a feet or two away, I can't really tell. I have taken a picture of it before but it was out of focus so it would really help.

dj898 2006-01-16 17:06

[ok time for yet another small progress update]

I wasn't happy with the diorama base - it was too blend and had no characteristics of Gundam universe...
So after bit of researching - i.e. watching few OVA DVD :p - I came up with another layout idea.
here's rough drawing of the new base - sorry for messy drawing. I was in hurry :P
http://img472.imageshack.us/img472/4...08428xb.th.jpg

and here's the initial arrangement before I glue things down.

with 1/144 scale the chogokin model is pretty good...
has nice articulation as well as being chogokin has nice weight to it, not to mention great gold plating... :D

ok enough OT...

Well, it's not that OT... I might get one, since it would only stand there looking nice with the plating anyways, but I'm still undecided.

Is that supposed to be a hangar?

dj898 2006-01-17 04:40

well the idea was some kind of hangar but I wanted to use the bridge kit so it's bit changed to outdoor are next to the railway line... Will need to spend more time to do detailed fround work - and still waiting for the fine day with painting - been raining and cloudy for last couple of days... :(

Sety 2006-01-17 18:43

I need abit of help.......I was watching a model making video of one of the top Gundam model makers in JPN apparentally and I noticed whenever he used poly cement on the seams he sprayed something else on it which seemed to clean the area, does anyone have an idea what it might have been?

It was a RX-78 Gundam Ver.Ka..........

I also have some videos of other top builders making Gundam MK.II, Zaku and etc. they're like entire shows which take you through the entire process and shows you tons of tips for building models. Though I can't figure out what some of the stuff they use is.

Mr_Paper 2006-01-17 19:41

It's Alteco Spray Primer 「アルテコ スプレープライマー」

I have no idea why or how he's using it in that video. >.>;

Nesty 2006-01-17 19:59

i got the first batch of vids, what was in the second BT batch?

Mr_Paper 2006-01-17 20:21

I have ones for the Agguy, B3 Gouf, Gundam, MK.2, Qubeley, Zaku I, Dom and Sword Calamity.

The other ones are for tanks, boats and submarines.

Here's some pictures of the 1/144 HGUC Hyaku Shiki. Its too bad that it was too shiny that it leaves a blur(I suck with cameras too).

I hate to nitpick, but don't you mean Acguy? I never heard of Agguy before..

Haha, SD Hyaku Shiki.. with gold plating too! Looks awesome! :D Just out of curiosity, where'd you buy them? I tend to stay away from SD kits, but I'm really tempted right now...

I bought them locally at a hobby shop but I'll tell you which set they are:
1/144 - HGUC(obviously :D)
SD(smallest one) - Three pack Zeta set from a G-Generation series(can't remember which G-Generation)
SD(bigger one) - Limited Dress up one that was released back in the early 90's

I posted pics in the last model discussion thread with the Sazabi, Zaku II and Hiyaku shiki and might as well share it since its still in my photobucket account:

I also had Nu and Zeta(deluxe kit with musha armor and Z plus conversion) but I lost most of theose parts and left with Nu's head/helmet.

Sety 2006-01-18 05:12

Those are plain awesome, I haven't got any SD Gundams for a longtime, my last one was a God Gundam


EDIT:

Question, I know airbrushes are always the best way to go.......but does anyone know if those canned enamel spraypaints are worth using on Gundam models? I noticed some while browsing enamel paints.

Also can anyone tell me what some people I sometimes see using, which look like sticks used to skewer parts so they can dry when painted and easily painted when holding them and where I could find some?

It depends really...
if I need to paint the base quick I just use a cheap can of spray (lacquer) from hardware store...
I'd expect using can of spray would be more expensive and the finish will be lot thicker than air brushing.

For the skewers, I get mine from local Chinese grocery shop for A$3.50 for the bag of 50... And use aligator clip for the small piece with that you can't use skewers...

Nesty 2006-01-18 21:21

i'd love to see the sword calamity being built, can someone hook me up with that vid?

dj898 2006-01-18 21:23

[yet another small update]

just finished painting zaku II...
here's a shot w/o flash...

weathering and chipping to come later... 8)

p.s. second picture will show what can go wrong with digicam without the custom setting. It was at mid night last night and I wasn't in the mood to setup the custom setting again for another shot...

dj898 2006-01-19 07:46

just done with initial painting of RX-78-0... :p

Thats a strange shade of blue, I'll assume its just the light.

yea it's the flash.... it's bit lighter than Titanz blue actually...

JanthraX^ 2006-01-19 15:12

I think it would have looked better with a GM,

but what you have done so far is great and making a setting is even better!
is for a compo, of for fun?

dj898 2006-01-19 16:01

half way thru the project I got sort of doing in similar scheme of TTT...
my diorama is based of pre-TTT era hence the colour scheme and bit different head...
still missing all the minor details

well I got this half finished Gundam ver 1.5 from mate of mine so really had no choice... :D

No it's just for fun - and I've been working 10-20 min every night except couple of days when my cat died...

If I need I should be able to finish in 2-3 days provided the weather is fine...
Due to recent rain we got over here I had to delay the painting for couple of days too!

portgas D ace 2006-01-19 17:30

haha this is pretty funny.... i made the striker systems awesome and they fit the PG one and i painted my ZETA really good and the camera arrived.... problem is that the camera was damaged during shipping so i cant use it (curse you fedex) and now i have to return it back to sony and wait forever for it to come again....

nightbringer360 2006-01-19 18:51

As far as the skewer sticks are concerned, just look around a supermarket for kebab sticks. Stick a bit of blu-tac on the end and you've got some nice parts holders.

And portgas - looking forward to see the pictures of your PG Strike with the Striker systems ... and to see how they fit.

dj898 2006-01-19 19:26

I found the bamboo skewer sticks often found at Asian grocery store is perfect - not too thin nor too thick and just right length at around 150mm... and helluva cheaper than local Woolies/Coles...

DarkWarrior 2006-01-19 22:54

Hmm, I don't really keep up with Gunpla news or know if this is important.

But anyways, I was browsing HLJ.com, and I noticed that MG Wing Ver. Ka, and MG Wing Zero were discontinued.. does this mean anything?

And for skewer sticks, I got a huge pack at my local crafts store for around 3 bucks. Not a bad deal, even though they require a little bit of cutting to get alligator clips to fit on.
