LightningZERO 2008-02-11 19:03

After what happened in episode 18, I'm not sure if I should get the Throne Eins :heh:

That's great looking panel effects on the Strike, what technique did you use to show panel shading and the metallic effect on the rifle and body? Cheers

Just drop by the local electronic parts store and look for a 5V LED with intensity of 5000 mcd or higher rating. You can also consider getting a white LED then color the clear plastic piece between the eyes and tip of the head with different colors!

Example:

I ended up coloring mine with blue on top and orange for the eyes. Easy mod :)

Sorry for being a N00b! I replied to this previously but... I like the shading effects on the body armour and rifle, how did you achieve this effect. If you don't mind me asking! Cheers:D

Why Hello There.

I've always had a fondness for the various Gundam series, but I've never actually collected any scale model kits before now. However, I feel like starting the hobby of collecting kits now, and I want some advice.

I think I'm going to pick up a Master Grade RX-78-2 Gundam, because it's the first Gundam I was introduced to. What I'd like is a guide to painting and inking model kits, as I want to do it justice when I get it. can anyone help me with this?

Hi there. The master grade was the first ones that I started with a few years back, and due to cost here in NZ I was only able to collect the odd one every month or so. But once my confidence improved and felt good enough to progress... I started collect the PG versions!! The Master Grade versions are great for newbies, and also try investing in good quality paints (water based is the best) and brushes; just try to spend for better quality here!

Another investment I was able to was an Airbrush system; I use an Tamiya basic system for work and a couple of extra airbrush guns. And you can't go wrong without some Gundam markers, but practice makes perfect as the saying goes...

Just have fun with your new hobby; I'm an old guy and still love building robots!! :p

Cheers

The unpainted Throne Eins looks good ( maybe it dunt have much colors so the unpainted one still look good :D ) , but its mega launcher's color is a little simple compare to the painted one , isnt it ?
Anyway , gotta get this baby for sure :D
Hope Bandai will make plan for 1/100 Graham Flag soon :">

lol, to be honest i am not really a big fan of throne, but since i am collecting most of the 00 HG i am getting all 3 thrones as well - but i might end up liking it ( i thought Taozi tieren was tedious looking, until i finished building it today, it's actually pretty sweet. cant wait till the space type to come out)

i think they will have bunch 1/100 like they did with seed/destiny

i am curious which gundam from 00 will make it into MGs...;)

Co-sign

After watching episode 18, my love for Granham Custom has sky-rocketed! Bandai BETTER make a 1/100 version. I mean they even made one for Lunamaria zaku, so it will be stupid if they don't make one for Custom Flag. >=(

Duo Maxwell 2008-02-12 06:33

and include a shining tattoo sticker with the model too , that will be great :D
I havent bought 1/144 Graham Flag yet , but seems like it didnt have the shining tattoo sticker :(

About done with 1/100 Dynames , Just need to finish off the extra armor .
The green color on its armor seems rather dark compared to the anime/manual though.

UGGGHHH PLAY DOUGH HAIR!

I can so imagine people replacing that hair with some other material when they get it.

For those that own the 1/100 Exia, is it worth getting it?
I'm contemplating whether I should wait until an MG version of Exia is released (if ever) or get this 1/100 version. Are there any flaws with the 1/100 that I should be concerned with?
