IMO the MG is not worth it, unless you are a complete sucker for shiny gold

Obelisk did a pretty good job of describing the MG

The HG Unicorns IMO are much better, the proportions are made to the OVA version, and are much more solid. However the gold in the HGs is NOT shiny. They use the gold found in SD kits or other kits like the SF (slightly better coloring than the SF though). So be prepared to paint or live with it. I would go for this if you are really a fan of the design (of course though there is no Unicorn mode, so theres that to consider as well).

MG Fenice Rinascita.... Okay, Bandai, good move. Now just come out with MG Transient and maybe I'd forgive you for making Banshee Norn an exclusive.

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2015-03-23 23:46

^ MG Banshee Norn turns out to be a brick though (especially with that huge shield). I wouldn't buy it even if it was a regular release. I'll use that money to buy RD Banshee Norn instead. Owning one MG Banshee is enough for me :uhoh:.

Oh fuck me CCA Stark Jegan. I have GOT to get that.

That said it looks like it's basically the standard stark Jegan with the CCA Jegan's body and head, lacking the forearm armor, and with a hip attachment for the beam rifle, and a grenade rack.

On that note...would I put it past Bandai to release an HGUC XM-10 Flint as a P-Bandai exclusive?

............No. I wouldn't.

GameraBaenre 2015-03-27 11:29

Working on a Grimoire, added some mods and LED to the head. There are some videos of the process here: http://gamerabaenre.com/?p=3525

Nope, their priorities for the Crossbone exclusives are obviously the X-2 and X-3, and perhaps their variants

- The Flint is technically a Crossbone variant. It's essentially a GM Crossbone. All they'd need is one new sprue for the revised Zanbuster, crossbone thrusters, and head.

Quick product look from me to help you guys out in gunpla building!



I just got my Tamiya Design Knife in the mail today and OMG is it awesome for $5 more than what I currently use (plain ol $2 X-Acto) (Paid $7.50 for it)

The only thing I find the X-Acto knife has over the Design knife is the fact that it can swap out for a multitude of blade types, replacements can be found literally anywhere in the US, and it can use drill bits

The design knife is higher in quality, and it's body (black matte finish with gold tamiya lettering on it) is shaped like a pencil, so less prone to rolling, and the weight is directed towards the front of the knife, making for much much much easier cuts.

The blade is where it shines, its about half the length of an X-acto blade which makes it perfect for cleaning nubs and flash (may have some problems reaching farther or prying though). And they're pretty sharp little buggers

It also comes with a cap (fits with blade in, and somewhat prevents rolling on one side), and a 2 sided canister that comes with 30? replacement blades. One side stores the unopened blade (this side has a lid), the other side has a slit to insert finished/unusable blades (so when you are done toss them in there, note though you cant retrieve them without breaking the case open)



All in all I say upgrade your modelers knife if you are using a cheap X-Acto or whatever your equivalent is. Does not necessarily have to be a Tamiya knife, but anything higher quality from a reputable company. The gunpla building will go much faster and funner in regards to cleaning those damn nubs

Wild Goose 2015-03-29 23:30

Hmmmm....

I don't actualy cut my nubs. *shrug* I've been converted to the church of sanding. I use use my hobby knife for scoring.

Incidentally, I finally finished my Murasame over the weekend:

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)
And now I'm debating what colors I'm going to use. I'm now thinking of making the wings black, gray and white, and changing to red to gray to tie into the source for this idea inspiration. (One of the factions in Solid Shark's Cry of the Falcon, really.)

I've also decided that next month, I think I'll buy another Murasame, only I'm going to do this bird in Sahaku colors...

After completing it, for some reason I kinda like the Murasame more in fighter mode than in MS mode. Might be due to how MS articulation isn't really that great, IMO. It's fairly decent to build, no main issues. I dislike how flimsy the beam rifle is though, even when you try and attack it to the hardpoint. But all in all it's a decent kit for a decent price. I might well get a couple more actually, especially since Murasames are cheaper than Jegans.

And then after that was done I went and tried to color my Murasame:

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread)
I like how it's coming along but dear god the marker is kinda uneven.

Also on the tailfin, on the right side the ink has a glossy finish (I'm using AGE black marker, GM97). On the other side it suddenly loss the gloss. Same marker, gap of about 6 hours. Gundam markers. *sighs* Anyway if I had to do things all over again, I'd do the gray parts on the tailfin first, then mask them and then do the black parts, since the matte gray of the Gm13 marker isn't so affected as the gloss black of the GM97 marker.

...I really want to get another Murasame and do it up in Sahaku colors now...

And if you're doing anything with colors and marker and decal, color first, then decal.

Quick question, which would you guys recommend RG Freedom or HG Freedom Remastered?

RG. Definitely RG. The HG is so bad by todays standards, its a shame. You could also wait a while longer for a HGCE Freedom. I'm pretty sure we'll get it eventually

Thanks, I ordered the RG. Though I still have my finger cross for a future HGBF Build Freedom in the future :D
