Im an amateur gundam assembler. All i know is inking and putting stickers the right way. I accidently mash the back sticker written "Noir Striker" a little bit, im regretting it.

No inking done, but everything looks so well thought of, i dont think any painting was necessary unless someone wants a different colour all together.

From Gunota:


HGUC Ground-Type Gundam (That's one nice display stand at the lower right....)
MG Char's Zaku II Ver 2.0 (With red display stand? Where my green stand?) :heh:
HCM-Pro Destroy Gundam (1/200 scale @ 270mm tall lol....)
PG Wing Zero Custom (Special Version) (I swear, I said before we had enough "special versions" lol )

And.....Guess who's on the cover for that "road to the 100th" :heh:

LoweGear 2007-04-03 12:30

For the Char's Zaku, seems like they're selling the Red Action Base seperately, judging from the seperate price listing. *insert 3x joke here*

So... why is Max Factory's GENESIC GAOGAIGAR hogging the space where the HGUC Ground Type's supposed to be? :heh: Anyways, seems they've confused their HCM-Pro Ground Type for the HGUC. Having longed for a HGUC Gundam Ground Type for a long type, I must say it looks spiffy, complete with all of its weapons and weapon container. And it seems they're also selling a much smaller variant of the Action Base for 1/144 scale models.

Also quite impressed with the HCM-Pro Destroy, it's freaking HUGE O_O

Most likely another pearl finish version like the pearlescent edition on the perfect grade strike gundam. Unless you're a collection fanatic extra finish kits are not worth buying.

(also you spell it as 'wonder' not 'wounder' :rolleyes: )

Might want to watch your own grammar and such before dinging someone for a misspelling.

Grammar Nazi-Man...AWAY!


Anyway, the WZC PG Special Version will either be a pearl finish version like the WZC MG or one of those colored metallic ones like the Freedom Gundam Extra Finish was.

Freedom - http://www.dalong.net/old/mg/me1/me1_i.htm

Did anyone here get the akatsuki 1/100? I seem to be the only person who went and got it so far.

LOL, no, I meant I'm the Grammar Nazi. I just thought the rolling eyes smiley was a little insulting towards the other poster....but whatever, thats not what we are here for...:)

To anwser your question about the Akatsuki, I ordered it but it hasn't arrived. Considering I have about 10 other models to finish in front of it, it'll be a while before I get to work on it. I might push it ahead of some other kits I have though since I want to try out my Alclad gold on a complete kit.

Ok then, I wont spoil anything for you but bandai did a fantastic job with the part moulding, much better than the rubbish 1/144 HG. Like the saviour 1/100 all the detail came colour moulded, not that akatsuki had that many colours apart from gold but its definately built to Master Grade standards.

MG SF Full Burst will get a reissue in May for those still feverish about getting one.

Seriously, after seeing and assembling the MG Hi-Nu, the SF Full Burst doesn't seem so attractive.

Kittie Rose 2007-04-06 05:32

Hi, I need some serious help here.

I seem to have lost a part of my 1/144 HG Aile Strike - the left part of the right ankle guard, to be precise, the bit above the foot that falls off easily.

I've looked everywhere and I can't find it. Is there any kind of replacement parts service?

what a rush production ......

Akyra 2007-04-06 11:23

What's the point of creating these clear versions?! Esp these 1/100 NG ones. I mean, you don't get to see the "skeleton" or anything..

J_Ridden 2007-04-06 11:47

It says that Destiny's afterimages are created by the deuterion energy system :confused:

question
 
hey can anyone help me out, i have bought and completed assembling my ORB-01 akatsuki 1/100 HG gundam. In the package it includes a decal for me to apply to the model. The question i wan to ask is that since i read in some other forums that the decal will smudge if i apply a clear spray coating onto the gundam. can i apply the decal after i have sprayed the coating?

Nope, the MG Hi-Nu is much bigger than the SF and diesn't really need pianting to look good.

The SF ,OTOH, still needs a layer of Gold paint at the joints to make it look better whether it's FB edition or not.

And of course it doesn't help that the Hi-Nu is priced exactly the same as the SF FB.

gummybear 2007-04-08 00:13

OMIGOSH!!!! guess what I found in my basement buried in my "memory box" and I had fun building yesterday :blush:



Now guess what else I found :heehee:

Strike Freedom needs no paint to look good, especially the FB with the extra finish. Nor does Hi-Nu, but its afact that the Hi-nu has some parts that needed to be, and should have been separate coloured parts...but were plain stickers. And honestly it doesnt matter for someone who paints their kits outside the base colour scheme.

If you like one design over theother, thats fine, buttheres really no point in trying to justify fanboyism towards one or the other.

Yes you can. Doing that will actually make it easier to apply the decal; more friction.

DARN!!!!This is annoying!!!I'm at the LAST wing of SF and my spray paint just HAD to run outta paint!!:mad: :frustrated: :frustrated:

Damn coolest gundam ive ever assembled. I wonder its twin beam rifles+grenade launcher. How would it do in actuall combat.

I hope that there is a gundam stargazer game in developement.

Now thats nice. I have a HG 1/144 Strike Noir but i have not decided to get a MG. But if i do, i would place my MG IWSP pack on it^^. How much was yours?

Stargazer game? unlikely.......

sorry for double posting. If i am not mistaken there is two release of the MG Strike Freedom. The other one comes with an extra finish like what you said. However, thats freaking expensive.

Im not familiar withthe meaning MG IWSP pack. I have a HG 1/144 Strike noir but its nothing compared to this MG. I just figured out its wings can be opened,it looks like a modified version of Strike Noir. Even the anime doesnt look like it.

Actually there is a Stargazer game i checked on the japanese website of the anime but it looks like a novel game.

oh i mean the MG 1/100 Strike Gundam + IWSP(Integrated Weapon System Pack). I think the IWSP pack is compatible with Strike Noir and Strike Rouge.

kct 2007-04-11 10:03

And the 1/100 Akatsuki, since it apparently have the same plug with the MG Strikes.

WaytoDawn 2007-04-12 05:57

Whoo-hoo! FINALLY! I'm done! Here are some pics.



Comments are welcomed!!

Honey_and_Cleaver 2007-04-12 06:13

That Strike Freedom looks awesome.

takumi111 2007-04-12 20:18

I like the mod you did on the DRAGOONs to expose more of the gold frame underneath. Also, the V-fins look like they could really poke an eye out, nice!

WaytoDawn 2007-04-13 00:27

Haha! Thanks for the compliments! This is my first kit which i tried to paint and put up decals.(well, the right way at least...:heh: ) I didn't do a lot of mods, just to the fingers and sharpen the V-fin. The wings are not mods, just paint. they took A LOT and i mean A LOT of time to paint as i am not really good at hand painting so i used a roll of masking tape to do it...:D :heh: took me an hour or so to place the masking tape and 5 seconds to paint it...however, i did try to hand paint the little gold parts at the ankle armour and the shoulders.

aikming 2007-04-13 03:15

Too much decal in my opinion
