That one doesn't include an airbrush...just that it is able to be used for airbrushing.

Just thought of this for some reason...

Do you think T.M Revolution was given or owns a Blaze ZAKU Phantom Heine Custom by any chance?

kct 2006-07-01 22:30

Hey guy I got a MG Re-GZ that I want to sell. The box has never been opened I just don't have the room to display it (LCD died and had to buy a CRT...) What is a good price for it and what's a good place to sell it?

I'm thinking about re-coloring my Strike. Are there any good alternate-color strikes out there I can check out for reference? (Please don't say strike-rouge LOL)

Thanks

I saw a black and silver one recently but I can't recall where unfortunatly. I recently finished a Phase Shift Down version that I'm pretty sure is color accurate to the anime, and I just based it off of screen caps from the first few episodes of SEED.

You know, I saw that one over at Dalong just the otehr day. I was kinda mad about it at first, but then I realized the colors on the PS Down one aren't as color accurate as using the Gundam Color paints (I used the Strike Freedom Phase Sift Down color set) and the PS Down kit also did the Aile Pack with the PS off, which from the desert arc, the Phase Shift on the pack never shuts off, so I was glad I got the normal versiona and repainted it. Plus, in teh end, I would have had to paint the thing either way...

I actually saw the same thing at dalong after someone told me pictures were up <.< . They should get working on something awesome, like an Akatsuki or something (or IJ).

I like that Red Frame and the flight unit it looks very good makes me want to modify my red frame and make one too. Don't know how well it will go but how hard could it be.:heh: Good Job.

zetra 2006-07-02 22:49

Same as me. Btw what's material for making destiny silhouette for destiny impulse?

Yao353 2006-07-03 00:42

Process of Building Gundam Model
 
Normal building I use:
Modeler's side cutter
Model cutter for plastic
Modeler's Knife
Modeler's drill
Lineling:
Gundam Markers
Tamiya X-1 and Thinner mix Paint

Painting/ Coloring:
Gundam Markers

This are the most process I do

1st. Build the gundam by using the Cutters, knife, and Drills
Drills is to make the holes slightly bigger so is easier to take out(but is easy to far apart if you drill it 2 much)

After gundam finish, I mostly use Tamiya X-1 Paint to do the lineling instead of the
Gundam Markers(In details they look alot better and it can be used in small spots or tricky spots that markers can't get to

personaly I dont do painting, I only use gundam markers to make some parts has it's color, like the guns and shilds.

Leave some comments about how you build your gundam, and learn from each others experiance.

The_Marshal_AEB 2006-07-03 00:45

Destiny + sword impulse = Destiny impulse + extra gun and some modifications

viper 2006-07-03 02:13

I order most of my modeling stuff whether it be Gunpla or Aircraft straight from Japan via HLJ.com and RainbowTen.co.jp/english/

I'm not a big fan of Tamiya Acrylic other than their clears like Smoke, so the rest of my supplies like placard, putty and paint (I primarily use Model Masters Enamel and PollyScale acrylics from time to time) I get from Towerhobbies.com or Squadron.com

Well, seeing as it is simply a remold with different color plastics, it isn't too bad. What bugs me is the color is so far off from what it should be that it is surprising. IMO anyone in their right mind would skip that, get teh regular one and just paint it.

As far as I'm concerned, colored plastic is just a gimmick. I don't really care what color its molded in seeing as all my regular models come that way and that I'm ultimately going to paint it anyways.

kct 2006-07-03 05:32

If that thing is cheaper I can see people going Noir with that though >.> .

duotiga 2006-07-03 10:41

Yao353 2006-07-03 16:04

WHERE IS THE MG LEGEND, DESTINY AND (at least a 1/100) AKATSUKI.

EDIT: Fixed.

Akyra 2006-07-03 18:49

Where is the 1/100 Akatsuki *fullstop*?! :frustrated:

Probably because it's one MG Gundam kit, and one non-Gundam MG kit next, and then probably back to an MG Gundam kit, but since they threw a wave of Z Gundam suits...

M_Flores 2006-07-03 21:03

Can someone use Marketing and Economical analysis to predict if and when a release of an MG Strike Freedom Gundam would see light?




(On a side note, that CORE-WOrKS conversion kit seems to have been out of stock for a while now...)

kct 2006-07-03 21:13

This is because Bandai have to maintain a balanced 50:50 ratio for the MGs, that is 50% Gundams and 50% non-Gundams, although I wonder if they will count the almost-Gundam (e.g. the Z Pluses, Strike Rouge) as one of the Gundams.

Nope .... It is nothing but HG lol

Next time don't trick others like that.

Legend is more like 'an MG without a frame' >.> .

DarkWarrior 2006-07-03 23:33

Just ordered a 1/100 Legend and HG Strike Noir.. never liked Legend in the anime, but the model kit looks surprisingly good.

sandrum 2006-07-04 00:45

Since the 1\100 Legend is just coming out, I doubt we'll see an MG of that one soon. 1/100 IJ is only just now out as well. It seems that bandai may leave some of the more interesting models for last quarter '06 as the ball (the 3rd in 1.5 years) may be to bait off some time. My GUESS (only a guess) is that the F91's new joint system may serve in the release of future UC gundams (that is, those gundams that exist after F91 in the UC timeline -- Crossbone, Victory...etc) since we have yet to have a release of one during or after that time as an MG. I'm probably just saying that because I want a MG Vgundam badly. Anyway, I'm sure they're holding off for something.

Akyra 2006-07-04 02:44

Hmmm, isn't the the 1/100 Legend out already? On rainbowten, it said it came out on the 28th of June and some have been shipped out already while HLJ said it's on backorder.

OH yeh, what paint do you guys use for the Gundams and those ugly skin-coloured figurines? I am thinking of using my NGs as my labrats for painting. The hand painting style or the airbrush style would have the best effects and which style is better for beginners? Thanks.
