Woo hoo! =D Congrats on the buy. How much did it cost? And hopefully you get some pics up with the completed 00Q Full Saber. xD And yes, hopefully Bandai does choose to make it.

Your sacrifice in buying this resin kit will not be forgotten, Sworra. LOL

Same here. If we got a separate kit with like a tree or 2, I'd buy it. =D

I paid $30 for the resin and then shipping so total amount $46, which is not to bad. I was expecting this resin to be a tan colour, but this one went all out with the colours.. Will do, i'll take some pic's i just can't wait to see the full completed 00Q.

Cheers.

GN0010 Nosferatu 2011-08-26 23:31

The ELS 00 Qan[T] doesn't look that good now.

Meh~

Still hoping we get:

MG O Gundam (Type ACD)
MG Exia Repair 2
MG Astraea
.
.
.
and maybe MG Exia Avalanche and MG 00 Qan[T] Full Saber (as a kit or an add-on kit)

I guess maybe if Bandai makes a MG kit out of this instead of this resin one, they could work on stuff...

Though I'm not sure how they would handle the gradient color effects all over the kit.

>_>

Appel 2011-08-27 09:50

i think it looks ok^^ the photo just was taken from a weird angle and the lighting sucks. some kits just look wrong from certain angles :P

well thats your opinion :P personally i just like the organic look of the ELS OOQ and the photo isnt too bad at showing that off.

Aaaah here I go again... why do HG models have this ability to make me like designs I didn't previously like?! Like this HG Gundam AGE-1 Titus:

Well, models and toys often make a simple or ugly concept looks cooler. Same thing can be addressed to HG/MG of Zaku, Dom, Gelgoog, Acguy, Gogg, Zock, Zeong, and the RX-78-2 himself. :D

MoonLightShadows 2011-08-27 18:27

It is yes. They announced the HG Genoace Custom for a good while now.

Inb4 someone mods the Genoace Custom to have a Destroy Mode :heh:

Zero Hurricane 2011-08-28 04:47

Maybe resembles GX Bit anyone?

Appel 2011-08-28 05:00

eh, im really no fan of most of the AGE suits so far XD i probably wont get a lot of those.

i also just ordered an airbrush set^^ i found one for just 50 bucks, i just couldnt pass that up. it even comes with a proper compressor! im excited how that will turn out^^
im also glad that i found that shop, on amazon i would have paid about 80 bucks...
im really excited about this because you can do so much more with an airbrush and the paint is SO much cheaper...

its obviously a german shop :P

it comes with a compressor (about 44 PSI), an airbrush, some paints and thinner (probably really crappy paint but i can always use it to test spraying with it) and all the other stuff you need.
its a crapshot but i really couldnt pass up a bargain like that. and if it sucks i can always get my money back. it received good reviews as a beginners set though so im pretty confident.
also, at this pricepoint i really wouldnt mind getting a new airbrush for it if the ones that comes with the set sucks.

Not the compressor im worried about.. ive never seen that type of airbrush before. give a whirl, see what she can do. ;) Yeah you can always replace the brush for a better one in the future.

im pretty sure the compressor is extremely weak though, too :P 3.1 bar/ 44psi i believe but not 64 L/min. at 49€ this seems to be the kind of compressor that can barely fill the tire of a bike XD but for some basic airbrushing it should be fine. i dont want to do anything special! just some basic coloring and maybe some highlighting or shading. ive seen how vegeta8259 on youtube painted his Ex-S conversion kit and it looked REALLY nice.

and yeah, that airbrush looks kinda weird^^ ive looked at a lot of other brushes over the weekend and it really doesnt look like any other model that ive seen :P
but who cares. it will do for getting used to airbrushing and i can always pick up a different one down town!^^

Yeah if its for simple jobs i think it will do fine.. I'm not a big fan of bottom feed brushes, you really have to tinker with it for the right air flow to the consistency
of the paint. just cause your fighting gravity..

yeah thats what i thought, too. i do understand the basics of airbrushing already and it makes sense that a top fed brush would have it a little easier since it doesnt have to suck UP the paint AND blow it on the piece im spraying. but like i said, it should be fine just for getting the hang of it^^ and who knows, maybe its actually a decent brush! :P

now im actually pretty happy that i still have to paint my HG exia^^ i got frustrated because the clear blue paint i used somehow reacted with the chrome base i used and everything looked just disgusting... im looking forward to fixing this guy, its been sitting in its box for some time now.

Indeed.. The brush may turn out good.. Happy painting and hope your Exia turns out the way you want it.

yeah, i really hope so too... i finally want to finish it!

im really intrigued to use the ALCLAD II paints for it because i want it to look nice and shiny!

~Destiny~ 2011-08-28 23:43

Since no one else mentioned it yet :rolleyes:

Appel 2011-08-29 06:10

i dunno, but for some reason this doesnt look as good as the other RGs so far :P

I think Gundam Guy posted a fake contest. And I searched for the user and can't find it. So a fake user as well...wtf...

that doesnt mean that it is fake. the information must have come from somewhere :P i cant find anything about it though, too.

but besides that: "Prize will be shipped within Japan only."
so we can forget about entering, anyway.

Yea. Just saw that..

Ugh, wtf... Then why did he post it? He's based off of the US (California) and most of his site visitors are from the US...and many others from like Europe and whatnot...

>_>

Japan only stuff should be left out.

Appel 2011-08-29 10:15

naa, i still think that he should post all gunpla related news. its supposed to be a news blog, if he left out certain things it would kinda defeat its purpose :P
and im sure that many people in japan use that blog as well.

i also just looked at the prices of the alclad II airbrush paints i want to use... for 1 bottle of chrome, one buttle of black glossy enamel primer and a bottle of top coat id pay about 30 to 40 bucks... :T i think ill try to find a different and cheaper primer. it just needs to be enamel, so i really dont have to use the alclad II primer. i think ill just use regular enamel paint for that.

what kind of gimmicks should there be? in terms of gimmicks the freedom is a rather boring machine. the only things that it has going for it are the general design, the wings and the beam spamming weapons.
there really isnt much for bandai that they could add :P
also, i dont think different shades of white would look good on the freedom.

its just generally a little more detailed, like all the other RGs:

and at 2625 yen it almost doesnt really make a lot of sense to buy the RG in my opinion... you can get the MG version for about 3000 yen at HLJ for example :P
