I'm not a paint man, unfortunately. I can't even weld without destroying the models, so everything is snap fit.

But yeah, new HGAC will make me splurge my gunpla saving

EDIT: Just tried the pencil trick, I am amazed it works at all.

Pencil is good, and if you sharp it the right way, it can work on some very difficult spots where Gundam Marker usually can't reach. The minus is, the lining made from pencil isn't flat. It will look shiny when hits by light. Not to mention it can be accidentally erased/rubbed off by your own fingers if you use it on some exposed areas where your fingers usually touch. Maybe some flat coating after the pencil will solve the problem.

Only using it for the tiny head lines and vulcan, so no touching soon :p

And yeah, topcoat is kind of necessary.

So yeah... MG Sazabi Ver.ka. Should be called massive grade... That's huge for a MG...

I know, from the unboxing video at HLJ it takes up at least two MG FA Unicorn boxes put together.. Mine is probably in customs in Vancouver by now. Monday or Tuesday I'll probably get it..

F... Lucky s... I can't afford it :( Give me the goods when you build it.

Knight_SV 2013-12-15 08:21

i choose not to purchasing MG FA unicorn ver. Ka because i wait for the anime color version

ZeroXSEED 2013-12-15 10:29

Huh, conflicted whether to buy 1/100 Ground Tieren or two 1/144 Tierens

How awful.... (if there's a Fantong/Anf I'll buy it right away)

Depends on what scale you prefer, both are good kits. But I have to admit that the 1/100 is superior in terms of details, accessories, and the overall built of the kit. I have HG 1/144 Tieren Taozi and the hip section likes to come off. The crotch is also not that great imo. So there's that.

The 1/100 Ground Tieren is a superb kit, detailed and nice. i'd strongly recommend buying it instead of two 1/144's

ZeroXSEED 2013-12-15 13:14

Yay

Buying 1/100 then

Also, that bazooka :eek:

EDIT

Go to shop for 1/100 Tieren, HGUC Hraairo arrived

*facepalm*

Aurelis 2013-12-16 00:52

Did you end up getting the Tieren or Gaplant?

Regarding Gaplant, I personally feel that if you had to choose between Gaplant and Hrairoo, Hrairoo is a better choice although it's always recommended to have both :p

But if it's between a Tieren and Gaplant, hell, I'd say go for the Gaplant despite it being outdated and all. Something about Tieren looks squat and clunky *Gets pummeled by Tieren's fans*

Anyway, I've completed a kit or two, the HG G-Bouncer and the RG GP01.

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)
I know there aren't many fans of the Gundam AGE anime but the kits are quite good in my opinion and the G-Bouncer is an example of that. It's a marvelous piece that looks simple but actually has a lot going on, like the flaps gimmick on its backpack, the shield and beam combo, those sexy legs *I did not and will not get a Gundam Spallow* and the fact that most seamlines are cleverly hidden or disguised as panel lines.

The RG GP01 on the other hand, continues to carry the signature feature of being well-detailed and good-looking. I like the small features like the latching claw at the base of the foot, core fighter and fixed hand for carrying the shield.

I'm hoping to see more reviews of RG Strike Freedom and hopefully, for HGUC Victory and F91 Harrison.

ZeroXSEED 2013-12-16 01:08

It's Hraairo actually, I don't like the mass produced Gaplant that much. I think I'll hold and see if the shop bring more selection (there's a Xekueins as well, dayum)

I just want a bigger kit that's not gundam :p

HG AGE is indeed awesome because it use the latest construction technology before the new line is created, building them are rather easy and fast, and if you have sufficiently good technique, adding the details to already decent unit. (plus they're dirt cheap and abundant)

~Destiny~ 2013-12-16 01:13

I dont think there'll be many more reviews of RG Strike Freedom coming. Most of the 'main' reviews are done, only missing ones are from Hobby no Toriko and rrobbert184 I think

1/100 Tieren is amazing!

I'm just so sad we never got a 1/100 space type or sergei's tieren all reagions type

RX93-2 2013-12-16 07:44

the HG age kits are damn great, I only have a few myself but you can tell none of them are outright bad.
Those kits, parts of Gen2 and the Age3 Orbital's design almost made that wreck of a show worth it.

I recently redid my 1/100 Vent Saviour, I can't paint large surfaces for a while so I did touchups with markers, panel liners and spare decals and Its fun to look back that even these OoB builds are much much better then what I used to make and look good like this.
It's a very solid fun model with plenty spaces to add in colors, easily maskable areas and a solid build.

Providenceangle 2013-12-16 09:48

They finally showed the meteor hopper in bf. Not to spoil anything but it sounds like it's V8 powered lol. Cool or not that's so ridiculous.

ZeroXSEED 2013-12-16 09:55

So who's here going to buy TWO meteor hopper and combine it into one bike? :p

NeutralZero 2013-12-16 10:22

we'll probably try that... that Gundam Rider's cool/nice in its own way...
but maybe not this month... too many expenses...
