What do you use specifically?

Araxiel 2011-06-09 15:27

Games Workshop make one standardised set of nippers; the 'Citadel Tools Plastic Cutters'. I assume Appel's referring to those.

I think they've brought out a new type since then. Black handles, narrower pinchy blade bit.

SonicSP 2011-06-09 21:22

Alright thanks. I'm tired of leaving excess plastic so Im looking for a good set of sidecutters?

Speaking of which, do you guys paint over the scars left behind by the plastic?

yeah, just get one from games workshop or a similar one.

usually i dont. i dont have any markers for that but i was thinking about getting some in standard gundam colors and a grey one. the OO raiser has some pretty bad nubs all over the it and im thinking about fixing that.

Araxiel 2011-06-10 12:02

I use the GW craft knife to cut parts off the frame and trim down the nubs. For some reason, rubbing my thumb repeatedly over the pale spot where the plastic was trimmed causes it to fade back to pretty much the same colour. Either I have a magical power, or everyone can do this.
At any rate, I usually wind up entirely painting my kits anyway, so that's just for the interim where they're displayed unpainted.

Preliminary model/figure images for Gundam AGE:

Appel 2011-06-11 06:58

neat. i like the AGE-1 already^^
but since the show is obviously aimed at a younger audience (probably elementary school and middle school students) i wonder whether they will even bother making a MG version or whether they will just go with a ton of HG and NG kits and a ton of action figures.

gundam age is giving me the super robot feeling

amurorei83 2011-06-11 08:41

Gundam Age-1 looks more like a kit bash between 0 Gundam & V Gundam.
The designs are just awful imo... The Gundam RX-78 design is abused too much nowadays. It'll be ok IF it works out well, but not in this case.

GN0010 Nosferatu 2011-06-11 14:15

Ah, back to basics, shield and rifle. My favorite weapon set up.

Araxiel 2011-06-11 14:26

I'm in favour of AGE's look too. Nothing wrong with a neat, clean, basic-looking Gundam. I agree, there's elements of V in there, and it also reminds me somewhat of Beginning [particularly the shield].
Though bear in mind, they've probably got a little way to go yet before those turn into the final designs. So I expect they'll tidy them up a bit, maybe tweak and streamline a few things, before we get the HGs.
It's possible AGE might get a Master Grade [maybe with the add-on parts a la the Sword/Launcher Strike], but beyond that, this line'll probably be riding mostly on the HGs. Still, I'm hopeful for some pretty good quality kits; HGs have been really good lately.

The regular Age looks ok, I like the basic-ness of it. Hopefully it gets streamlined a bit so it doesnt look so blocky. The other 2 though... Maybe it's the awkward colour scheme but Im hating them

looks nice^^ i put some more work into my PG astray today and applied some decals. not all of them though because most of the dry tansfers go into ridicolous places and are just not worth it in my opinion...
i did like all the lowe and REhome decals though!
