uhh.....
nope....I dont have such thing.....
just simple single kit I modeled.....

dj898 2005-12-20 03:13

those PG kits were built long time ago but left behind when I moved countries for work... I almost forgot about those but remembered when I visited my old man's house and searched for those till I found... Still I'm missing few bits and pieces especially with PG Mk-II though...

There is a no-grade GuAIZ.

dj898: Woah, that is some really heavy shading :O.

dj898 2005-12-20 06:26

those are not MAX style but done by air brushing on top of painting...
(well I did those before I got the hang of MAX style shading)

I never said it was MAX style shading (which is shading done by painting layers upon layers of progressively darker shades, if I'm not mistaken?), I just said it was really heavy. To be honest it sort of stung my eyes :heh:.

Actually, MAX is the oppostite... you start with a dark colour, usually black or grey and paint progressively smaller amounts onto it, each getting lighter and lighter...

dj898 2005-12-20 13:44

if I doing them again I will probably going with MAX style...
those were at the time when I was experimenting with shading...
yea I went bit overboard but they don't look too bad imho - those flash make them look like way too dark then it actually is though

Ah, so I was almost right :heh:.

dj898: Must be the flash then.

dj898 2005-12-20 14:04

without the flash they look like this...



dj898 2005-12-20 15:34

OT:
forgot where I saw this news...

"...A JAPANESE internet whiz is tipped to become the world's fourth space tourist - and he wants to orbit the earth dressed as an ace pilot from a hit Japanese animation series.

The candidate for the $US20m trip is Japanese investor Daisuke Enomoto, a 34-year-old former board director of the Livedoor internet firm headed by flamboyant entrepreneur Takafumi Horie, local media said.
Mr Enomoto has already passed medical checks and started flight training for a trip in late 2006, Jiji Press news agency reported.

Mr Enomoto said in January that he was likely to be the first Japanese to make a paid space trip.

"I'm planning to do something amusing," he wrote then on his website.

If he gets Russian approval, Mr Enomoto said he wanted to dress up on the trip as "Char Aznable", a character in the popular "Gundam" hero robot series of animation whose name is inspired by French singer Charles Aznavour.

Mr Enomoto describes himself as a "Gundam otaku (geek)".

The third civilian to pay for a space flight, US millionaire businessman Greg Olsen, returned to Earth in the Soyuz space capsule.

The 60-year-old American paid Space Adventures $US20m for a seat aboard the capsule and eight days of gazing down at the Earth from the International Space Station, 370km up.

He was preceded into space by two other millionaire tourists, American Dennis Tito in 2001 and South African Mark Shuttleworth the following year..."

Optimaximal 2005-12-21 09:40

try http://www.hlj.com/hljlist2/?range=d...&GenreCode=All

HLJ don't list any out of stock or discontinued items on the general MG search, but if you go through the advanced search, select 1/100 as your scale and Master-Grade as the kit type, you'll see the lot...

It's also worth noting that by 'discontinued' it doesn't mean that the kit is officially out of production, but rather Bandai aren't producing them for the forseable future (usually 3-4 months)...
Exceptions too this rule are instances where the kit has been superceeded by newer versions (i.e. the 'Game color' versions of 0079 kits have superceeded most of the original Zeon MG kits) and special editions (i.e. plated kits) which are gone forever once stocks run dry!

dj898 2005-12-21 15:27

no if I recall correctly it's one of GM Custom rifle...
(well I didn't have to build the shield and beam rifle that way... instead nick the rifle off GM Custom kit he he)

NoMoneyRanger 2005-12-21 16:50

1/100 MG Zeta Gundam version 2.0 is out. Get it while it's hot!

Syn13 2005-12-21 17:32

Yay the Palace Athene is being made, now when does it come out? :D

well this one was suppose to be special one-off custom type with field upgrade...
hence no beam rifle nor usual RX-78 backpack... think of it as variant of Sentinel MSvS(?)... heh

I won't be getting Zeta 2.0 as yet...
maybe next time when I get the annual leave...

Assuming all goes to plan, it's targetted for February, alongside the MG Nemo and the Akatsuki...

I thought the Akatsuki was scheduled for January?

demon_god04 2005-12-22 14:57

Is the Akatsuki MG as well?.... man i want an MG Murasame:(

dj898 2005-12-22 15:09

man I wouldn't mine it myself...
always like its design - sort of reminds me Japanese samurai in full war armour gear... :D

dj898 2005-12-22 16:43

anyone has better idea to take the photo shoot?
I know I should have the lighting system setup but since I don't have any pre-made portable studio I have to use what's available...

No, the Akatsuki is a 1/144 HG kit. Though an MG version would be awesome, I think we'd see Destiny, Strike Freedom, maybe Infinite Justice, before we'd get an Akatsuki MG.

And yeah, an MG Murasame would be sweet.

Syn13 2005-12-22 19:03

MG Astray M1 before Murasame first :D

Somehow I doubt that, considering that Seed only got Strike and Freedom MGs so far. (Strike Rouge doesn't count). We'll probably get MG Destiny and Strike Freedom, but anything else is unlikely. Maybe several years down the road.. but considering GSD's poor model sales, I don't think it's happening.

And dj898.. thumbs up on all your models. They look pretty awesome. :D Keep the pictures coming, it's always cool to have members share their models.

dj898 2005-12-22 20:33

thanks mate!

I'm trying get PG Custom Weapon set #2 for Gundam....
hopefully I can get one for cheap and I shall have the full weapon set for PG Gundam then... :D


by the way has anyone have PG kit to show as well?
I'd love to see what otherd one with their PG kit... :D

Akatsuki before Astray M1 XD

anywho, nice work on the PGs dj, i kinda like the heavier shades, gives off a different look to it ;)

as for lighting, do what most ppl do, get a large cloth and curve it up at the back, place the model at lease 10cm infront of the curved back. add at lease 2 light sources in the front and take pictures away ^_^

dj898 2005-12-23 01:28

sounds like I will need to make that portable studio box after all...

Nesty 2005-12-23 09:58

lol i didn't say it was going to be easy XD

pmajin 2005-12-23 13:33

Has anyone else been wondering why Bandai released strike rouge MG when there was already a Strike MG? same goes for the PG's... released a strike PG and now they've got a strike rouge PG... I find that a bit of a waste... if anything, people could just have painted strike into the rouge colors... maybe they could have released a different set of decals for strike rouge but what the hell... they're just wasting resources now...
