Good point.

I didn't realise the Kerberos kit also comes with a Bucue as the base. Perhaps that's why they didn't release it until now?

Problem with Zaku model
 
I'm working on a Ms-06F 2 Perfect Grade and found out that there are not
enough springs to do the hydraulic cabels. Is there a place where is can
get replacement parts?

Be sure to follow their instructions carefully.

You guys know how the Outframe is compatible with the Wizard Packs...

I wonder how it'd look with the Kerberos heads. :P

duotiga 2006-09-04 22:44

in 1999 for MG Strike + IWSP it states...

"MG Strike Gundam( in dark tone) + IWSP unit + Combined shield + Grandslam
Flying base included. "

Meehlimo 2006-09-04 22:46

any pics of this dark colored strike?

kct 2006-09-04 22:46

Somehow the advertised MG Strike looks like it have detailed Strike Noir-ish eyes.

Ok, it's been a REALLY long time since I last posted over here. Since it's been quite a long time since I've worked on a gunpla kit... but after this weekend, I have some considerable work done of my current Gyan Project... here's the progress page:
http://www.gamerabaenre.com/shin_gyan_prog.htm
and some sample pictures:
http://www.gamerabaenre.com/thumbnai...%20052_jpg.jpghttp://www.gamerabaenre.com/thumbnai...%20046_jpg.jpghttp://www.gamerabaenre.com/thumbnai...%20060_jpg.jpghttp://www.gamerabaenre.com/thumbnai...%20044_jpg.jpghttp://www.gamerabaenre.com/thumbnai...%20053_jpg.jpg
Next up are the decals, panel lines, and clear coating....

theOtherGuy 2006-09-05 02:58

OMG, I love the paint job. It's just...so beautiful....

Sety 2006-09-05 09:38

Almost enough to bring a grown man to tears....Gyan has never looked so good.

I wonder how will the sales of Blu Duel will be, based on his bad performance in Stargazer. But it is a really nice boxart

i will still get it...is on reserved....:heh: :D

Nesty 2006-09-06 10:11

i think it will still do well :) the design is i think nicer than the original duel

SNT1 2006-09-06 10:17

doesnt matter--GINNs and zakus and GMs kept being blown up left and right---does that mean we avoid their gunpla? no! :D

anyways, i'll only get this one if its available in 1/100. good looking mech.

Tak 2006-09-06 10:21

^ Yeah, don't look down on grunts. I am recently building a massive battlefield with 1/144 scales... and I will need a lot of grunts to fill it. This means, at least 5 kits from each side of the conflict, Zakus, Murasame and Daggers, you name it :heh:

No, of course I am not going to avoid grunt kits!

The parts of the original 1/144 HG Duel is in there, with improvement made to the waist as par all the other 1/144 HG Stargazer kits, minus the Assault Shroud which had been replaced by this new armour.

Not a bad kit though.

Great scratch build. :) It even looks like there are sprue marks on some of the scratch built parts. :eyebrow:

LightningZERO 2006-09-07 10:28

Which is what I often wondered... with that amount of armour, she should have had sufficient time to bail out when her Gundam went down. The Blue Duel's armour would have been able to hold on while she ejected... :heh:

Considering that she was getting stabbedstabbedstabbed but it still took a while for the beam fangs to penetrate all the way to the cockpit it seems that the armor is rather wicked, and she just panicked.

And I like Blu Duel. It manages to have an air of sleekness while still looking bulky, I like that. The only thing I dislike is that the pistol holsters are too big. Other than that the model seems to have the same engineering quality and posability as the Powered GM. Poor Lightning Edition :heh: .

It didn't enhance the kit, in fact, it made the Strike Freedom look ghastly!

- Tak

Sety 2006-09-08 07:15

Ugh...S-Freedom looks awful enough as a model, even those amazing custom jobs only look decent at best just because S-Freedom is that ugly. Lightning Edition just took what was already ugly and made it hideous.

Traks 2006-09-08 07:17

I am not much a fan of the lights for Strike Freedom Lightening Edition, but Bandai did make major improvements on the proportions for the Strike Freedom. If you give the kit a good coat of paint for the part you do not want to light up and only clear coat, or candy paint, certain parts that you would want to light up (i.e. eyes and helmet lens), I'd say you would have a good looking model. Given, without the lights Bandai could have dropped the price about $30US and probably sold more kits to broad range of people, but then Bandai probably already had a demographic of who they wanted to sell the kit to.

Personally, I would have like to have seen Bandai release a master grade kit of the Strike Freedom before they released the 1/60 Lightening Edition.

Sety 2006-09-08 08:08

Personally I would like them to release a MG kit of Hi-Nu before re-releasing all these CE kits. Or even revive the Gundam X/Turn-A line of models. At least we're finally getting a MG Crossbone so theres alot of hope, if they spent more time making higher quality models then these horrible 3 part snap together and gimmicky CE models they've saturated the market in everyone would be much happier.

Or even better yet....if they want to spam more CE models, howabout they reprint MG Freedom? One of the few models they got right of CE era besides PG Strike and its always out of stock or overly inflated expensive.

On a off note, can anyone tell me hows the quality on the 1/100 Gold Frame Amatu? Is it anywhere near as good as the 1/100 Blue Frame Second L? Blue Frame was one of the few 1/100 HG's that have impressed me as of late in terms of posability, sturdiness and detail.

duotiga 2006-09-08 08:56

quality of 1/100 Gold Frame Amatu is way better and Sturdier than Blue Frame 2nd L ;) Detail wise is pretty accurate i would say......

duotiga 2006-09-08 09:05

I would have to agree, a MG Hi-Nu would be a great kit to have, even though I have the Core-works conversion in my backlog (Nice kit but the helmet seems smashed in). Though, the comment about the release of the CE kits, there have been 22 UC MG kits that have been released since 2004 compare to the 4 CE kits that have been released according to Penetrate

Also, depending on where you get you models from, the PG Strike is adequetly priced seeing that it is a newer model, that is priced less than the PG MKII at HLJ. And besides, the HGUC in my opinion, is booming with kits.

As far as the 1/100 Gold Frame Amatu, it was built off the red frame, not sure if that helps. Here is some pics of it from http://www.dalong.net/. To me, there is too much black and gold to see all the things the kit has going on for it. I think if the kit was in another color you could appreciate the outlines of all the weaponry it has, though my fave out the Astray line is still 1/100 Blue Frame Second L. :)

P.S.- I'm glad I held out for the MG Crossbone ( It looks like a great kit), I just wish it came with the Shot Lancer or the Peacock smasher.

Sure enough, all of them are resin kits that can come out to be larger than your average 1/60 scale PG models. Too much for my taste, hell thats a car payment.
