Yup you and Bandai got me there

Hmm, whoever called the Cathedral Gundam being P-Bandai, good call.

Personally hyped for AMAZING RED WARRIOR! That aside, looking forward to seeing what Hyaku Shiki variation they're gonna bring for MG or P-Bandai MG.

Aaaaaaaaaand HGAW Double X ordered. Now to wait for it to arrive, haha. Should be a good 15 days or so, considering how blazing fast (not really) BR customs can be.

Kinda excited to build it, because it'll be a new experience. Had the RG Freedom as my first ever gunpla, then moved to RG Justice, and that was a really similar build, so having my first HG should probably shake things up a bit.

Thought it was weird, though, how on HLJ's website they had the DX as a Skill Lv.3 kit, whereas Freedom and Justice are 2. Is it harder to put together, somehow? haha.

Also, might try my hand at painting for the first time. At least detail painting. The red jewel, the little reflectors or w/e on the arms/legs and MAYBE the wings, although I'm a bit worried that it might not get the same cool reflection that the gold from the stickers can get. Any tips on how to do that or so? lol.

Oh, and one last thing: noticed the V-Fin has those little 'rounded' edges. Is there an easy way to 'remove' those? From the videos I saw they look kinda ugly, so I'd definitely like to try my hand in having those look better.

Should be easier to build, much less parts and much more stable

For painting, I think it depends on what paints you got available and how you paint. For gold, imo spray painting/airbrushing is the way to go unless its small parts. Usually either gold with clear orange over it, or silver with clear yellow depending on the exact gold type you want

As for the V-Fin, sanding the parts down I find is the safest, cutting can work, but you stand a much higher chance of breaking the part









BTW does anyone know if the online exclusive MG Zakus of late are based off the 1.0 or 2.0 molds???

Blue-kun 2015-05-16 00:13

I'll have to look around stores here for paint, mainly because getting those from Japan is a no-go. Saw some gold and metallic gold the other day that looked nice. I guess the good part of the wings is that if I do decide to paint it and somehow the end result isn't satisfactory, there's always the sticker to cover it, lol.

Don't have access to airbrush though! So I guess I'll have to look into that when the time comes. Would hand painting it not turn out alright? Cause I guess that part's basically the only 'big' one I'll be (trying) to paint, the rest's all smaller and just trying to get some more details in, lol.

Well airbrush is extremely expensive (the whole setup), so there's that to consider

Handpainting on second thought for your particular case should work, since its not a flat surface you are painting (the DX panels are textured), so brushmarks should be minimal at most

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that any MG Zaku exclusives that came out after MG Zaku 2.0 are made of 2.0 molds. Otherwise, modellers & collectors will strangle those Bandai execs for unforgivably reusing the old mold :mad:.

From the looks/proportions Im assuming they are 2.0, however from the promo pics their posability makes them look like 1.0's so its really hard to tell......

But seriously guys, the future of gunplas looks grim for those who aren't filthy rich or live in Japan :( (at least for those who like the ones who are being made exclusives *coughHeavyGundamcough*).
*glancing at cheap third-party products which have become better and better over the years*

2 Cathedrals. Fuck it. Never bought P-Bandai before, this is probably the first and last time I'm doing it.

GameraBaenre 2015-05-20 13:58

We've been doing a few of these, and trying to adhere to a bi-weekly live broadcast. Your normal weekday evening where most of us have time to build. Why not collaborate and virtually gather? Share some ideas,promote inspiration to build, or get answers to age old model questions easily found via google...

Set for Thursday, May 21, 2015 @ 7:30 PM PST

What's with this obsession with Cathedral Gundam? I mean, its a nice looking MS... but not THAT nice.

It's cool to me but that's partly the reason. Also it was late at night when I saw the post and I thought "Hey, why not?"

Then bam. :heh:

Thats subjective on your part

Alot of us here love the Denial design, the Cathedral IMO is a more awesome version of that



And Gold MS rocks







AND: Huh did NOT see that coming so last minute (Gundam Mk.II REVIVE)

Don't get me wrong. I really love the Denial design too. But not the Cathedral nearly as much. White and Gold looks... ickky to me.

Well, glad I won't be spending those big bucks for an exclusive then.

Looks nice, but I think I'll stick with the RG for all my MK-II needs.

Galaxian 2015-05-22 20:07

Just ordered Mega Shiki, IMO easily among the top 5 designs from BFT. Meanwhile, the internal struggle about how much I want Cathedral continues.

We might be getting Mega Shiki in MG format for P-Bandai, if the Mega Launcher is any indication.

GN0010 Nosferatu 2015-05-22 21:41

So what's this whole Freedom Gundam REVIVE version? Where is it from?

The Freedom Gundam Revive ver. is just the newest model version of the Freedom Gundam, basically its HG 2.0. Basically it's a model kit that's better than the old HG Freedom Gundam while being less complex and less expensive than the RG Freedom.

Just Bandai randomly updating their HGs with new molds. There’s hardly any pattern. First they “revive” HGUC RX-78-2 with Red Warrior’s mold which is an easy cashgrab, then they “revive” HGUC Guncannon with genuine new mold this time. As for HG Freedom REVIVE, Bandai pretty much just continuing the HGCE-line but they slapped the “revive” on it.

I'm one of those who aren't obsessed with Cathedral. Yes, it's charming and I like it, but I'm not crazy about the color-scheme. I do like the mold very much. But when I can get similar mold from Denial (which color-scheme I prefer), I see no reason why I should pay a lot more for Cathedral.

LoweGear 2015-05-23 00:47

Huh, I think I know where GN0010 Nosferatu's question came from -

Apart from the standard HG Freedom Gundam Revive, there's apparently also going to be a HG Freedom Gundam Revive Custom Kit, which is basically an add-on parts package for it:

http://i.imgur.com/usBGTs8.jpg

GN0010 Nosferatu 2015-05-23 01:40

Yeah those extra parts and designs. Where do those originate from?

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2015-05-23 02:09

^ Isn't that from GBF-custom-things or its side materials? Not sure though.

wavehawk 2015-05-23 02:11

Hobby Japan magazine bonus parts. It's basically like the Wing Zero Honoo extra parts released earlier this year, but for the upcoming HG Revive Freedom. I might pass on the Freedom, but the parts I might get and use elsewhere.

Also: If Desert Punk (Sunabōzu) took place in Gundam continuity...

wavehawk 2015-05-23 08:04

Stop me if you;'ve heard this before: I already previously tried to convert an old 1/144 Wing Gundam Zero Endless Waltz ver into a 1/144 F90 and FAILED MISERABLY. So, why in the world am I so badly tempted to buy the RG Endless Waltz Wing Zero and TRY TO DO THAT ALL OVER AGAIN? Am I insane?

GN0010 Nosferatu 2015-05-23 11:22

This maybe really old news. But, are there any translated files of the 1/100 MG SEED Gundams? The ones they released during the HD airing.

I'm 90% sure it's regular. Bandai will use its mold to "revive" HGUC Zeta it seems.
