Yea, I thought this was the case to so I would be surprised if there was need for painting for color completeness from out of the box. Good to hear that its not likely.

Do you guys know if these 1.7 mm pipes fit the MG Sinanju ver.ka's belt?

im building the new wing gundam right now... jeez, it really is a carbon copy of wing zero EW, except for some minor cosmetic changes :I but many parts like the legs or the arms are 100% the same


edit: and im done.
http://www.abload.de/img/foto0696vf6j.jpg

overall its a good kit (wing zero EW was a nice kit in the first place) but im having some issues with it:

-its wing zero EW. if you have built that one before the new wing gundam EW will be a pretty boring build for you :P

-its overlaoded with stuff. the ammo packs, the huge gun, the shield, the wings... everything gets in the way which hinders posing a lot!

-the buster rifle... because it has the older master grade hands without the pegs in the palms and the holes in the weapons it just cant hold the rifle AT ALL. because of that you are basically limited to this pose with the buster rifle resting on the ground. i will pick up some sticky tack later today, maybe that fixes the problem at least a little bit. but i really dont get why bandai didnt give us any kind of support for the rifle...

I think dalong came up with a kind of "fix" for holding the rifle, by sticking the thumb behind the handle of the gun as opposed to wrapping it around the handle as normally done. There's a pic of how it looks on his review of the kit. Just an FYI

thanks for the hint but it didnt work for me :P ill just keep it the way it is...

DV04 2011-04-13 19:21

Speaking of hands and rifle... is it me or does the hands of the MG Sinanju suck at holding the rifle? The individual fingers feel loose and don't grip the rifle well enough.

i am new with collecting these. Is there a site where i can see which models have been made by gundam series, or at least a list of all models made.

Here's one http://dalong.net/, though it doesn't contain the older kits which weren't good anyway.

might want to define "older kits" a bit more.

dalong doesn't have the original FG and HG kits from the earlier series, like G gundam.

he does have a LOT of kit reviews thought, def worth checking out

GN0010 Nosferatu 2011-04-16 22:28

I don't suppose any of you guys would know of...a commission model kit service would ya?

Any of you know what I mean? Buy a kit, then have a professional, or at least someone who has a grasp on the concept build and paint it for you? Does something like that even exist?

yeahitschris 2011-04-17 00:54

^ only reason why i buy kits is to build 'em. that'll take out all of the fun for me. only thing i would want someone to do is paint it and make it look more better

They do indeed, check out DC23 Mech arts blog. Or I'd be happy to do one for you! :heh:

i really wouldnt do it like that. its a lot more fun to build it yourself, i mean thats why you buy a model kit in the first place!^^
as for coloring, that really isnt THAT difficult if you know how to and in my opinion it mostly isnt even necessary.
plus, having it done by a professional will be very expensive! doing it yourself or just panel lining the model would be the better choice in my opinion!

GN0010 Nosferatu 2011-04-17 05:43

The time for me to get accustomed for kit building has long since passed. There is no hope for me to even be a novice at it. With my luck, I would end up breaking something before I even got the chance to build it.

JC... 2011-04-17 07:07

Try it sometime, Gunpla are by far one of the most easiest model kits there is to build.

I really want to get an HGUC Gaza C... maybe I'll get two, one for each mode.

dude, i started building those in late september last year and im as old as you are :P building these isnt more complicated than building a lego model! XD plus, im a huge klutz, i have 2 left hands! and look how my models turn out, there is a photo of my MG wing gundam on this page. (http://www.abload.de/img/foto0696vf6j.jpg) even though i hate that photo because i forgot a panel line on its knee :P

its incredibly easy to build those, i even managed to put together a perfect grade model just fine^^

You worked your way up to PG quite fast then :) What I've seen of your kits looks "neater" than what I've put together up until now though (No visible nubs, nice clean panellines). I'm Jealous :P

just build it slowly then...i am the novice in model building too but I don't find any problem in building HG..of course, the model is not that smooth as I can still see those parts leftover from the plastic modelling tree...but I will just try to make the model look a bit better when I have time

I guess the most exciting part of owning the model is that you were involved in the building process...just build it slowly and apply some little touch whenever you have time and interest after you build the kit...I can't paint but sometimes I will use whatever material I have (eg sticker) and try to make the already finished product a bit better

P.S on to another topic, is RG aile strike already out?

haha, thanks^^
but to be honest, PG astray wasnt exactly difficult to put together (just a ton of parts), there are quite a few nubs on my kits because where i live its tough to get proper touch-up markers (you just dont really see them in the photo because my cell phone camera blows) and my panellines arent exactly great either (im getting the hang of that though! on my wing EW they turned out quite nicely). there really isnt anything to be jealous about^^ i still consider myself a rookie

You'd be surprise at how easy it really is. It looks complicated but its actually child's play. Trust me, its worth your time to try at least one HG. All you need is a plastic cutter.

You've been fairly afraid to try all this time I recall, I really think you need to believe in yourself and take a leap of faith on just one and if it does not work...............then go with the commissions.

GN0010 Nosferatu 2011-04-18 01:49

I'd rather just go the commission route first.

Save myself the inevitable failure.

Appel 2011-04-18 01:53

at first i thought so, too. then i just ordered the master grade strike freedom full burst mode, watched a few build videos on youtube (check out stryderprimes channel on youtube http://www.youtube.com/user/stryderprime) and here i am!^^
id just get myself a high grade kit and go on from there.

Well it's not a Gundam. It's a Kotobukiya Frame Arm. It's slightly off topic. That's why I didn't mention it sooner.

those really dont look any more complicated than bandais gundam kits.

JC... 2011-04-18 06:35

They seem pretty simple, cut out the frame, push on the parts.

and on hobby link japan it says that the parts are pre painted, so no problem there^^

edit: speaking of building kits, look what just arrived^^

i know what ill be doing during the next couple of days c:<

JC... 2011-04-18 09:49

Wow EX-S, does it actually transform?

Illsteir 2011-04-18 10:29

Yes it does. And, transformation-wise, it puts the MG Unicorn to shame when it comes to level of difficulty.

:twitch: Just how much did that thing cost you? I saw a review on Youtube for this kit and I know this thing is MASSIVE and very, very difficult to pose. Regardless, have fun building it :)

it wasnt THAT much^^ my sinanju titanium finish was more expensive c:
and yeah, it is massive alright. i have built the stand and the lower body now and this beast is SO massive, you actually build the stand first and then you put everything on while the lower body already is on the stand :P and it comes with a bazillion screws...

this thing seems to be a pain in the butt to put together by the way. after i finished the lower body combinded with the core fighter it just wouldnt connect to the stand properly.... i had to remove a screw and now it fits alright i guess :T i hope the rest will be better.

it also comes with a lot of ugly and big stickers...


edit: got the legs on it now, the upper body is missing and its already almost as taller than a reguler master grade... this thing is a BEAST! XD

JC... 2011-04-18 16:21

Does anyone have the HGUC (or NG 1/144) Sazabi shot rifle and a Geara Zulu? I wouldn't mind seeing a size comparison with the two if anybody does. xD Thinking about getting one to equip an Angelo Sauper Geara Zulu with, it's a pretty cool combo.

Oh no my friend, I can assure you they are not pre-painted. They are unpainted, and boy do they look horrible without it.

by pre-painted i meant that the plastic itself actually has the right color already. but i have no idea what they look like like that, i dont know those kits...
