finally got to putting my NG astraea together. most of it was done a pretty long time ago, i just didnt get the time to put the pieces together. only the main body so far, still left to build the weapons. :)

^ That's looking pretty damn sharp there. :D

duotiga 2012-01-05 07:06

i like yr black panel lining for the Astrea ;)

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2012-01-05 07:44

@Appel: Nice, but how come I don’t see any lights from the FA Unicorn’s shoulders?

@pumpkins: Solid Astraea. So, you prefer the skirt than the skirt-less version?

you mean the different front skirts? i didn't really care about what version i was building, i just wanted one that looked much different from the normal exia... so i changed to the black face, removed the green orbs and changed the front skirt. :)

maknaedik 2012-01-05 08:48

Panel lining awesomeness. Too bad I can't do it like that. I usually go, "Ok, I'll perfectly line this kit this time". But once I made a mistake, "Forget this! I'll line it however I want to". In the end, it'll turn messy, LOL!

Since it's the mix of the 2, can we call it Astraea Type-F1.5?

its really tough to get the uv light everywhere. thats why not all pieces light up the same way.

Ok if we got a Sailormoon gundam with Nobel.

How would respond if there is a Vocaloid one?

instead of two blurry box shots you should have uploaded one with all boxes and one with all models. otherwise no one is ever gonna bother buying them!

i also took the photo of the glowing unicorn now. its not perfect but i suppose the light just cant get into it as well as it does with a HG model:



thats as good as its gonna get i guess :P

I just updated my eBay page with the GunPla with new pix. I hope now it'll sell. >_<

** EDIT **
So right now, I'm looking to purchase the 1/100 No Grade Avalanche Exia. Can anyone tell me the best place to buy it online? I live in the US. =)

Again, your FA Unicorn amazes me...definitely getting this when I go back to HK...(I like Gundams with lots of guns...ahahahaha)

Your photo has quite a bit noise...try turn down the ISO settings...but that glow is awesome!

i have no clue^^ but it IS pretty heavy. the unicorn is a big suit with many pieces and the weapons add a lot of weight to it.
on HLJ the whole box is listed as 1660g. so i think about 800g - 1000g for the kit itself.

So I decided to take your suggestion and took new pix and slightly lowered the price on my eBay auction for those SD 00 kits. =)

Tell me what you think.

Chiu_fan 2012-01-06 10:45

Finally done with this one. Spent most of my time cleaning it up than painting and panel-lining.:heh:

What do you guys think?

And I noticed something strange, the color guide states that the camera eye is blue yet the stickers they give are green. Which one is the actual color for the camera eye, Bandai?

thats way better^^ although two photos of the models might have been better. no one is gonna care about the boxes, you are selling the kits themselves afterall. but the prices are ok now as well so i guess you have a better chance to get rid of them now!

that looks really nice! great job^^
but as far as i know the sensors of the unicorn are always green :T seems to be a mistake in the coloring guide!

Maybe but the painted one on the manual shows blue but screenshots show green.:heh:

With that done, I have no models to build again. Currently looking for a new project and have been wanting to do a 1/100 Gold Frame Amatsu or MG Strike Noir. But I think I won' buy new models for now as I've finally realized that I'm seriously lacking space in my room now.:upset:

thats weird... but hey, they included the stickers and they have the right color so who cares^^

i dont have anything to build right now, too (except for an armored core model but i will paint that when it gets warmer again) and i think i wont buy anything for some time as well. i just dont feel like it right now :T i pre-ordered the MG duel, i think until that arrives i will make a gunpla break. maybe i will get a revell kit or something like that, they are cheap and some of them are really big so thats a plus over gunpla^^

i always wanted to make a diorama though... something with a RG-79(g) or a different kind of grunt machine... oh well, i will think about it.

What kind off non-gunpla kits do you buy? I collect some 1/72 aircraft and some 1/35 scale tanks myself.

I'm trying to make a diorama now for a Merkava. I'm using plaster from an art supply store to make the base and then probably make another one for my Gundam kits as well if it works.

Unpainted review of the HGUC Unicorn Banshee(unicorn mode) by Hacchaka.

I now have zero doubt that I like the Banshee more. :twitch:

Chiu_fan 2012-01-07 11:18

Here's the unpainted review of the Destroy mode of the Banshee from the same guy. Like the Unicorn mode Banshee, a sticker is used for that blueish black on the forehead.

Though I like the whole design of the Banshee and all but I have to ask, why bother putting that camera sensor in the mohawk even though there's still a horn blocking it in Destroy mode?

Bonta Kun 2012-01-08 20:45

Now I'm not fan of the AGE -1 Titus, it honestly doesn't do anything that can I say anything good about however with all models they can be shown in a different light that can alter thoughts and opinions about them and I've seen the Titus in a different light.

HG 1/144 AGE-1 Titus Cannon - customized build

Note that it does take a customized to change my thinking, like it usually does but even so still not fond of the original design despite quite liking this.

Shoulder/back pack cannons are always a huge plus in my book;)

Hope to see more AGE custom builds, they are proving to be quite good base models for some pretty cool builds.

Frankly, that color scheme is very bizarre to me. White or black are usually good colors to go all out in, but that deep navy blue and gold just don't sit well with me when compared to the much more subdued appearance of the Unicorn. I tend to think of blue as something that is used to compliment either red (or vise-versa) or black (again, or vise-versa) but having just blue and them some gold... meh.

Sir Dearka 2012-01-09 19:00

Anybody thinking that Master Grade Strike Gundam's head is ugly or is it just me? I prefer the High Grade 1/100 design so much more over this... ridiculous, isn't it?

cant really say that i agree :I im pretty happy with the head of the MG version^^

Exia_00 2012-01-09 23:55

does anyone have the release dates of the banshee, I was looking on ebay and someone is claiming to have them in stock, is that even possible if its not released, or has the release date been passed?

EDIT: NEVERMIND, I am slow lol

Well, then it's just me, but when I look at the vents on the head (where "nose" and "mouth" would be located if Gundams had those :]), those are much smaller in 1/100 HG and 1/60 Perfect Grade. MG vents are plain ugly to me... Not mentioning the design of panel lines (too few of them, which makes the model seem plain and uninteresting without decals). I somehow feel glad that they went for the different direction with Impulse and Justice, making them slimmer and more graceful in the process.

Just hopin' that Duel does not suffer the same fate Strike does. Seems not as its head looks ok and has no vents to meddle with ;D

Aside from the ‘mouth-vents’ that you mentioned, other notable differences is that the MG has a ‘bump’ on its forehead/V-fin that blocks the middle of Strike’s eyeline.


That makes the eyeline of the MG even more hidden than its 1/100 counterpart. Also, MG Strike's head is overall narrower than the head of the 1/100 Strike.

Is Bandai making a TV version of the Wing Zero in MG?

No news on that, but man wouldn't it be great. I grow SOOOOO TIRED of seeing Wing Zero Custom.

So I bought these custom feathers for the MG Wing Zero Custom. Anyways, I have this issue with models that have "wings" like Wing, Wing Zero Custom, Freedom, Strike Freedom, etc. They all seem to suffer from looseness because the plastic plug inside the plastic port just doesn't give a tight enough hold. Was wondering if it would be wise to add glue/cement to the plug, let it dry and then plug it in so that the "wings" can be held up without falling.

aha Right before I posted.

suiton629 2012-01-11 00:02

I would guess that we're gonna get a MG Wing Zero (TV), and then eventually a MG Wing Zero Custom 2.0...

What would they change with the existing MG Wing Zero Custom?

1. full inner frame
2. use newer MG hands
3. more clear parts
4. better color separation
5. improve joints like the backpack joint as well as the loose feather issues

Is it possible to at least remove the 1/100 HG Strike's head and put it on the Master Grade? Would it fit at all? :D

Wing Zero TV for now is the ONLY kit that I'd really like to get from Wing, with the exception of Talgeese III maybe :)

It will surely fit, but the problem is whether the 1/100 head will fit the MG's body proportion or not? If it's looks good, then it's perfect. :)

@optics: If you want to give the hinges of your wings some glue, you may want to use the not-superglue-ish glue so that the hinges can still moves. Btw, are the custom feathers any good? From your photo, it looks way thinner than the original feathers. How much does it cost?
