You could always use a soldering iron to weld the two pieces together. That would probably work better than just an adhesive.

Thanks for the suggestion i will try that out.. Any other suggestions would be great. :)

But you can always use back the O's GN drive with a little creativity as demonstrated below :-

How much work would HG Gundam Dynames take to build? It's the suit I personally like most and would like to build it if possible, but I'm a complete beginner. Frankly I don't have much interest in Exia, and not a whole lot of time and money either. Is HCM Pro Dynames any good?

Which models are easiest to build and uses least additional supplies like paint or cutters? And decent quality?

Sorry for my endless questions and thanks in advance to anyone who answers them! :D

kakakka 2009-10-03 21:02

You don't have to build HCM Pro.

You have to paint/colour the HG Dynames to look exactly like in the show. The building can take atleast 7 hours (that's my shortest, and I'm more of a beginner)

Haladflire65 2009-10-03 21:12

Would it still look decent without painting? I just don't think I can get ahold of paint and have time to use it where I'm living right now.

If you're only going to build, put on stickers, and panel line, without paint at all, HG 00 is definitely a good start. I have over 10 HG 00 kits, all unpainted, built directly out of the box, minimal panel lining.

And I see you're 14. I'm 15. :) You should be able to afford most of the HG 00 kits if you're not painting them. But I recommend you to panel line at least, they'll look better.

HG Dynames is pretty easy. One of the first few kits I got, though it is not very show-accurate due to the lack of paint. 00S2 kits are more show-accurate in terms of building them without paint.

How is the designer's colour Seravee?

Is Cherudim the only one out of the three 1/100 (Designer color ver.) without the LED gimmick?

Thanks for the info. I think I'll give HG Dynames a shot. :D

Hmm, but looking at my HG Dynames, it's nothing compared to the painted version. You might want to have a look at the unpainted version before deciding.

The Manual from "http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10097456" say the 1/100 Designer Color Cherudin kit includes the LED gimmick.

i have a question regarding protecting paint from the dust. i know where to find such clear paint but im not sure which is better to use between the dull finish or shiny finish? i dont want the model to shine like orb's akatsuki but i do want a semi metallic finish so it shines a bit while keeping the colours a bit dark.

using a clear or gloss topcoat will make ur kits more shinier as opposed to a flat or matt finish. it's kinda hard to achieve what you are describing as i'm not really proficient with painting myself. if you want a metallic finish you can buy either metallic gold or silver spraypaint from Tamiya. you'll need an undercoat of Black paint first before applying either of the above paints so that the finish is smooth

also if u use an metallic paint, u cant use any topcoat as it will ruin the finish.
hope this helps!!!:)

Hey how come black paint for an undercoat for silver/metallic paints? I've never used those paints before, but always wanted to try it. Since I usually use white/gray primer before I paint, would there be much difference if I used black?

Tempting, but too expensive for my taste.

kakakka 2009-10-04 14:23


So it looks like this? Looks like a 'pass', phew. :heh:
