Okay, here goes an SD & HG side-by-side.

Don't mind the Kung-Fu Panda Po. :D

SDs are VERY easy to assemble. The only drawback is the limited joints and you NEED to paint them A LOT! :D

EDIT: Here's my other pic of Bakunetsumaru if you want a closer look at an SD.

Thanks for the comparison. The only thing i'm worried about if i get one is painting it. I've never painted any kits before. Even when i was younger my art teachers always yelled at me because i couldn't stay in the lines. I feel like if i had to paint it i'd mess it up completely.

Two words... masking tape

=D

maknaedik 2011-10-12 20:31

Yes, masking tape. I used Tamiya and it's pretty reliable. But, that doesn't mean you can go over and spray like there's no tomorrow. It'll still bleed if it's too thick, in my experience

DarkWarrior 2011-10-12 20:54

If you're spraying so much paint on that it starts bleeding into the masking tape.. you're doing it wrong. Always spray in a thin layer, adding more layers afterwards if necessary.

And painting is like any other skill. Sure it's going to suck at first, but you'll eventually get better with practice. I recommend practicing with cheap kits first though. :)

Bonta Kun 2011-10-12 21:31

Well if your painting a SD for the first time then I'd think starting off with simple normal paint brushes would be fine.
No need to start off with a airbrush unless you really want to.
If you think your that bad at painting then I'd say go with a normal brush.

Yes a airbrush gives a better finish but such a small model it's kinda unneeded tbh.
It's just with bigger models and more frequent painting, using a airbrush is recommended.

Better to waste your time with a paint brush at first rather than with airbrush:p
Plus you'd be using a fine brush for finer details anyway so it's a good way to start.
And even if you don't want to ruin the model, I'd then suggest getting a simple and cheap injection kit of something like a plane or car to mess around with first.

:eek::eek::eek::love:

The choice of addons for the MG Heavyarms is interesting though. Not only does it get a Shield like the Okawara version, but it also gets the combat knife it has in Glory of the Losers. The last add-on though.... is that a beam gun, or something else entirely?

Also, something else from the news:

HG 1/144 SEED Remaster LaGOWE:

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-umd4PQAu7D...gtw/s400/7.jpg

Whoever said the HG Seed Line was dead seems to have been sorely mistaken. Well sure the LaGOWE would share parts with the previously released HG BuCUE, but this is the first new SEED kit since forever. :eek:

Also, on the HGAG front, the HG G Eguzesu (spelling tentative):

http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-5ZYdrKjFc_...48/s640/23.jpg

An MP suit based on the Gundam AGE? Or something entirely different? The chest reminds me of the Shining Gundam though XD

Finally, the fans has been waiting for it for ages!

The AGE's SDs look awesome. I think I prefer those than the HGs :D.

Does that effect parts included with RG Freedom? :confused:

Considering it's displayed as part of a full diorama, not likely.

GN0010 Nosferatu 2011-10-12 23:23

That white unit looks neat, I'm especially interested in the fact that it looks a lot like the AGE Gundam.

maknaedik 2011-10-12 23:46

Ow, another "WHITE" MS from Age huh? Let's see where will this lead us

That's the beam saber hidden inside the arm.

And damn, that Gatling gun looks pretty impressive. Feels more menacing than it's upgraded counterpart I'd say.

PzIVf3 2011-10-13 00:37

Possible the white gundam is for the Wolf man i forgot who that name is.

StrikeFreedomV2 2011-10-13 00:56

Awesome to hear that Heavyarms is finally going to be released :D With that, the first 5 Gundams are complete. I wonder if they will make a MG of the Tallgeese...

Anyway, here are some pics from my MG Strike Freedom. I haven't build the backpack yet, probably will today or tomorrow:
