You are just rephrasing my sentence. I get what you mean

Woops, sorry. I thought you were referring to the Phoenix pack as the aile pack.
I dont think Bandai will market any aile pack with this. According to some sites the strike rouge will only use the phoenix pack in the RM anime.

You know what? Since I have no MG Strike Rouge yet, I plan on buying both the old and new MG Rouge as well as MG Strike IWSP. I think Iíll put the Aile Pack (from old MG Rouge) on Rouge RM, then put the IWSP on old MG Rouge. The Ootori pack can go to MG Strike since the white and yellow colors really donít compliment the all-red & pink Rouge, but match more with Strikeís color (canon story be damned).

I'm looking to get a NZ-666. After googling I bit I found that the only 'official' NZ-666 from bandai is only the 1/144th? There's a 1/100th resin kit based on a scratch build that someone made but no MG model from Bandai yet. There's also a 1/72 version at a whopping $715 which is a bit too much for me to spend unless I can find out a bit more about it.

Anyone know if a MG version of it will be released any time soon?

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2013-06-16 06:40

^ So far, there's no sign of Bandai will ever release MG NZ-666 at all. Considering the size of it, I doubt it will be released in the foreseeable future. Bandai might surprise us like how they released MG The-O which is pretty massive. Still, I won’t hold my breath if I were you.

That's a shame. Do you have any info on the custom 1/100 NZ-666? Is it easy to build or is it like anime GK's where you need to use a lot of pins and what not to put together?

Edit: Any idea where I can get this? It should have been released and seems to be the best NZ-666 to get for a reasonable price:

I’m not really that informed regarding 3rd-party kits like that. This review might help:
Spoiler for saving space:
Sorry if it's the wrong kit.

In my country, I can easily find local on-line sellers who have it, but I don't know about the country where you live. My advice, if you’re looking for a good deal, then I suggest you try a local hobby-store near you first. If there’s none, try your local online-shops. You can try finding it through Facebook or other social sites. If all that doesn’t work, try importing it from trusted sites (google it hard).

Yup, it's the Jesta. I'm just building the kit out-of-the-box with some painting here and there.

I can always respect people who paint details on the frame, even though you can't see it under the armor :)

Ok the MG AGE-2 DB coming with the red binders from the Normal was unexpected, and quite nice too I may add

Though the lack of a red DODS Rifle is sad

The lack of the DODS isn't so bad. I think they included red binder pieces either from something to do with Memory of Eden or because it would've costed more to remove them from the plates.

Its highly likely that its not Memory of Eden, as all the promos we have seen so far have the DB in its normal configurations

Its probably they either could not cut them from the plates, or they wanted a further incentive to sell the kit (or both). Or maybe they were just too lazy




On a separate topic:

Can someone help? Im trying to remove seamlines from the HG Gouf Custom Im building, I used MR. HOBBY MR. CEMENT S (liquid cement) and applied it along the edges, then put the pieces together and squeezed for a few minutes. Then I applied a light coat of the cement to the outside along the seams. After 12 hours (basically slept on it) I took some sandpaper to it, but the seam line is still not gone, What am I doing wrong? (Its there, but way less visible then when I put together without glue, from a distance probably cant see it but up close, about 1 ft, its faintly noticeable)

Also from the videos/guides I have seen, when you push the pieces together the cement is supposed to come out along the seam, that was not the case for me, as I was not able to apply enough before they dried out (only had time to put 2-3 coats on each piece before putting them together and squeezing, otherwise the first part would have dried out)

Help?

And damn, these things smell nasty........

Are you going to paint it or not? If you are simplest solutions is to use putty. But if you're not going ro paint the kit, here's what I usually do:
First, I shave some same colored plastic from the sprue with a hobby knife. Then I apply some extra thin cement on the seams and then sprinkle the shavings. Add a few more drops of the thin cement on the shavings where the seams are located then press it down with old blade. Let it dry and cure up overnight then sand. If the seams still show, I would just repeat the process. I actually used this technique in my HGUC Stark Jegan in the previous page.

Hope this helps.

I dont paint my kits (only paint touch ups and small color swaps)

Interesting, I might try this, first Im gonna try another coat or two on top of the seam lines, if that dont work Ill try out your advice, Thanks!

I would also recommend using a nail buffer after sanding as it will greatly help in hiding scratches from the sanding process.

Probably a wing zero TV version and a normal color tallgeese, don't get to much hopes up.
