ABS

o_O

PS is rather weak and soft. but its more than sturdy enough to for the outer armor. you know styrofoam cups? same material^^
ABS is a heavyduty plastic. its very strong, even when its pretty thin. that makes it perfect for the inner frame of a model.

Appel 2012-04-11 13:43

the nemo is pretty great, i can recommend it^^ posing is alright but from what i have seen on dalnog.net it should be better. no idea why mine isnt moving that well since i have no idea what the guy who put it together did with it :P
but this pose will have to do for now:

I don't say anything about painting, right :eyebrow:? I just answered your question about the plastic in SD, HG, and MG kits. I tried to be nice by kindly answering your question and you replied with sarcasm? *Sigh* Just how childish are you :eyebrow:?

Ah, not bad, Appel. Not bad at all ^_^. Might be better if you broke a piece from the top of the shield.

I love shiny gold, the more reflective it's, the more I love it.

runners are undergated for the gold runners

suiton629 2012-04-12 07:58

I hate chrome parts. But I would prefer to strip the chrome off and then give it a metallic sheen with paint.

duotiga 2012-04-12 18:58

Have started on the Mg Banshee....painted the fin n collar gold

HasuMasu 2012-04-13 00:37

I always thought glowing orange would fit the Banshee's psychoframe the most, I even remember reading somewhere that it was called psychoflame. :eyespin::heh:

yup. it does have the nickname "psychoflame"^^ which is why i will paint the inside of its frame with verybright orange UV paint. my banshee has yet to arrive though... but im curious how it will turn out on the clear orange plastic.

Butagami 2012-04-13 05:55

That's true. But the fin and collar aren't a part of the psychoframe. They're kind of yellowy gold on the model, so I understand if you'd want to paint that.

edit: Sort of ninja'd by Appel...

right. although after seeing rrobberts review on youtube this morning the yellow pieces really dont look that bad... but all the vents need to be painted as well because they are molded in clear orange as well. so you might as well paint the yellow pieces, too.

duotiga 2012-04-13 07:22

this is what i did yesterday night

http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o...Banshee134.jpg

Appel 2012-04-13 07:35

there is still some yellow poking through though as it seems^^ i think a second layer of paint would be a good idea.
also, to get a really nice gold effect a third coat of clear yellow would look great! thats how the manual of the HG banshee recommends it for example.

duotiga 2012-04-13 07:53

yea,, am about to do 2nd/3rd layer of coating for the gold, just touching up as a base 1st

its usually enough to have two layers of a metallic paint.
and will you try the clear yellow? personally i love the effect.

im using gundam marker so cant be able to achieve clear yellow unless i make it more yellow instead for the other one? :heh:

oh i see. i didnt know you were using markers.
i always prefer regular paints over markers. although i still have some metallic gold spray paint... im will probably use that for my banshee.
if the bloody thing ever arrives that is >__> im not used to waiting for gunpla that long.

That's why I order from Amazon or GG Infinite. Shipping speeds are really good! :D

Speaking of which, I hope that my SD Age-1 (3 of them) and Action Base 2 gray (3 of them) arrive by Monday.

I might be in the mood to actually build GunPla. :D :D

well, yeah. when you live in america and you buy from a store in america, naturally the shipping wont take long >__> i have to import my models. that takes time.
the problem is that they screwed up my order. i pre-ordered the banshee with EMS shipping which usually takes a week. but because i ordered a different kit with SAL shipping their weird ordering system switched all my orders to SAL.
my MG RX-79(G) was here after 13 days. now im waiting for 3 weeks already. and im like a hyper and super impatient little kid when im waiting for packages... not to mention that it might end up at the customs office >__>

yea...sucks

i learned that lesson when i ordered from HLJ... the wait time + custom charge on my card... >_<

not worth it. good thing for amazon and my awesome friends at gg infinite. =D
by the way, what country do you live in? maybe i can find you a good online retailer or maybe ask gg infinite to hook you up...

i live in germany. and trust me, ive looked for shops in europe, its pretty much impossible to get gunpla at decent prices here :P

naa im good. im happy with the HLJs prices and they have sales often enough to keep me satisfied :P
and besides, trading wont do us any good^^ the kits in america are too expensive for me and we both would have to wait ages for them to arrive. not to mention that all my packages from america have ended up at the customs office so far.

I guess. I never been to Europe. =P But it seems logical. =D
Why not just use the FedEx option at HLJ?

because its bloody expensive and only a little faster than EMS :P plus, EMS packages are being delivered by DHL express. they deliver stuff monday through saturday (fedex only monday through friday) and they deliver very early. usually before 8am. that means i get my package before going to work, i can pay the customs fees at my door and i dont have to go pick up anything. its pretty much ideal for me.

edit: HLJ also gives a permanent 20% discount on EMS shipping which makes it very affordable.
in some weird cases FedEx is less expensive than EMS but three weeks after your package was delivered they always send you a bill. you then have to pay the customs fees and delivery fees. that makes it a lot more expensive than EMS in total in every case.

You should try to set up business in Germany then. It'd be perfect opportunity since there isn't much, and I'm pretty sure if you have competitive pricing, good customer service, friendly & fast service, a good selection...a lot of people from Europe will probably buy from you instead of importing from Japan.

no thank you XD i really dont want to do that.
there is a reason why there are no good stores for gunpla here. its just isnt popular enough in europe. for example, in america you have bluefin which distributes bandais models in the US. here in germany we have bupkis. as far as i know bandai only distributes gunpla in italy.

Already posted in the other AGE thread. Then again, from the previous picture we've seen, the Orbital seems to have bulky lower legs and a huge ass cannon as well, so I doubt it's a speed type, which is puzzling.

EDIT: Found it.

Agreed with one that has a Seravee vibe, but Reborns for Orbital? Nah.. I don't.

Orbital looks the fastest among the three, but definitely doesn't look speedy like Zeydra. As far as I can remember, it has a long range rifle but can't see that in the pics.

HasuMasu 2012-04-13 23:42

Orbital and Fortress, huh? I like what I see.

Just because it has bulky lower legs doesn't mean it can't be a speed type - the Dom is one of the fastest ground-type MS in UC, and yet it has the fattest legs, and for a more recent example the Avalanche Exia from 00. The fact that the Orbital's feet are posed downward like the GNZ series kinda gives some hints as to its function, where it's being presented as a unit that's not meant to operate on the ground but in the air.

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2012-04-14 00:14

*looking at AGE-3's alternate forms*

Uh... purple combined with light blue? :uhoh:

Suddenly, the red-blue combination doesn't look that bad anymore. :heh:

GN0010 Nosferatu 2012-04-14 00:38

Where do you see purple?
