It looks pretty bad for a 1/100, not that detailed at all

MakubeX2 2009-02-05 09:22

The pinnacle of 1/100 scale was at the relase of Overflag and Tieren kits with the details and those tiny figures you can make actually make a diorama with.

Why the sudden fall from grace, Bandai ?

Hey, when you're done building it, can you do me a favor and confirm if the 0 raiser's "wings" can attach to 00 gundam's arms and whether or not the sensor unit or "middle" part of the 0 raiser can be attached in the opposite position. Basically, all I'm asking is that can it do what the 1/100 00 raiser did in the picture i posted a page or 2 ago. thanks.

It will take me till Saturday's night to complete everything. (Aiming for 1 kit per night here), so I'll try to get back to ya around this weekend.

This is my first picture post for this thread, I'll post my models on display. I'll start with my new Archer-chan, she's great for tip-toeing cute poses:Archan joins the rest of my SRW team on a dusty shelf terrain:
Spoiler:
Turn A and Astivalis Akito:The Black Sarena, which I did not unpack:This one is a spoiler for FMP fans:The Twin Birds of SRW:That's all for now, I have some others which I hid somewhere and have been on overhaul ever since.

Then alot more which were scrapped around a decade or less ago, after I organised a Gundam Fight. The tournament lasted for several days or weeks I forgot, The G Gundam master and disciple team trashed the Wing boys and eventually the finals was God Gundam Vs EVA team. There was once EVA-01 tried to Positron snipe God Gundam, but God Dash destroyed the rifle.

In the midst of the tournament, there were body parts like a pair of Atomic Scissors, lots of V-fins and broken scythes all over the place, G Gundam dismantled the EVAs but itself lost some limbs.

After that I never organised another Gundam Fight anymore.

There are still a handful of Genesic for sale in shops here. If I'm actually rich, I may even buy Gaogaigar, Star Gaogaigar and Gaofaigar.

what you guys think?

what brand of sprays did you use?
I've never spray painted before, but if I ever got into it, I think i'd spray everything after they're off the runners and all nubs have been sanded down.

MrCapcom 2009-02-05 11:18

Tamiya Paint
Well if anything the reason why I was saying to fix the nubs after assemble would be because I would just paint over the nubs with a brush.

So, in general, which of these guys are the winners in terms of accuracy, details, accesories and articulation ?

1/100 Cherudim vs 1/144 Cherudim
1/100 00 vs 1/144 00

Seravee is looking good in 1/100, but I guess we'll have to see when anyone of us gets it.

Btw, is the consensus unanimous about the Arios 1/100 sucking compared to 1/144 even though nobody actually has it yet ? Apart from the GN Archer gimmick and the waist joint missing on the newer model, the pics didn't look THAT bad to me. Then again, I'm a newbie.

MrCapcom 2009-02-05 11:53

I hear the 1/144 00 is better as far as poses and the 1/100 00 has more stuff (weapons). Me Personally ill probally end up buying the 1/144 and SD versions.
Arios does look a bit plain but meh ill probally get it 1/100 of course.
I can't decide on weither to get Seravee or Virtue >_<

I'm a n00b only cause I only have 1 model and 2 WIP

If I were you, I'd wait for the hg 00 raiser..it's molded in a lighter color scheme (much cooler than the normal one IMO)

In terms of accuracy and detail, the 1/100's are more accurate to the original lineart (which themselves don't have much detail in them). 1/100's and 1/144's are more or less equal in accessories - while the 1/100 00 Gundam does have the GN Shield and combining GN Swords unlike the 1/144, the 1/144 compensates by having said accessories in the O-Raiser, which also comes along with its own display stand. The only unique thing the 1/100 00 has over the 1/144 is the GN Drive lighting unit, which seems to be compatible with all the other 1/100 S2 Gundams. The Cherudim is more or less similar in this aspect on both scales, though the 1/100 has the advantage of having "filled out" GN Shield Bits and an actual jointed GN Sniper Rifle.

HG 1/144 wins hands down in articulation, due to not having the same weight limits that the 1/100 has.

In the end, it all comes down to personal preference.

Ypocaramel 2009-02-05 13:54

Most Gundam 00 S2 releases are in 1/144 (especially the grunts) so they're probably better for diorama build unless Bandai finally releases more 1/100s. My 1/100 00 Gundam is very sturdy and tough, something that might not be true with the 1/144 (but this is speculation).

LoweGear 2009-02-05 14:10

While I don't have the 1/100, I do have the 1/144 HG 00 Gundam, and trust me it's one very tough and sturdy kit. The only real weak spot is in holding the GN Sword II's in rifle form, but otherwise the kit is extremely solid, being able to hold and maintain incredibly difficult poses, and doesn't fall apart at the slightest touch.

ryanvamp 2009-02-05 14:10

Thanks for all the answers like always, guys.

Regarding 00, I think that the best thing I could do is indeed wait for the HG 0 Raiser version, which I don't know when it'll come out but I'm in no hurry.

Regarding Cherudim, for the answers of LoweGear, I think 1/100 is the way to go.

So only Arios and Seravee are missing, but then again, they are kinda new (Seravee didn't come out yet, I believe?), so I'm sure the subject is far from over till any of us actually orders them and post their opinions. I hope Arios 1/100 isn't as bad as it seems right now, cause I was really looking forward to it.
