lol, that makes sense. its predecessor had its GN drive jacked by almark. it might be sorely missing that 2nd original gn drive. i really love the quanta head, somehow the angry mode fits it very well.

The 00Q has one of the best gundam heads ive ever seen. In high detail it looks stunning. Period

I hve to agree that the head does look a bit angry... bt it looks quite dignified to me. Also, it rocks in high detail.

its pretty nice... but not as accurate as i first believed. its missing the vents in the upper head part on the side of the cameras behind the crest. but its not like i can do any better..

I have a question about model kits..its about the ABS plastic ( the inner frame parts of the Gundam, usually black in colour).I believe most modelers have nightmares when the plastic suddenly turns white (signs of cracking) when connecting parts together or accidentally bending the plastic.I would like to know.... if the white decoloration happens but haven't crack or break yet, will it still last forever like normal plastic parts? or will it break eventually? I have build many Gundam models and I started realizing it when building the PG models..it has many ABS parts and it always started to turn white when i just connect it with another part.. hope every modelers can share their experience about this..really worried.

I for one do not seem to have that issue upon assembly/connection. Turning white it will probably not break, but if more force is exerted overtime, it may just break.

You can use a primer if you want. That primer you have in the link is for making paint stick better and identifing scratches and seam lines.

But if you want to get a dark red your black does go on first then you spray your red. Make sure you dont over do it on the red, spray the red lightly over the black until you get your desired affect. One other thing make sure your black is cured, Let your parts dry at least a day or two before you attempt the red.

Where in Australia are you from? You could probably find other spray paints other then Tamyia if your around major cities like Sydney or Melbourne. I know you can't ship sprays internationally but you can try with in your own nation.. I will try and help you out best i can since i have contacts within both major cities in Australia.

Many thanks for the tips that i have received. I will start by testing it on a small piece first (is primer optional?). Also Sworra, you mentioned you have some suppliers that you know in Sydney, i like to know about some of them especially if they have paints (i.e Mr Hobby Topcoat Matt, my supplier always runs out of stock fast) or reasonably priced gundam kits

It's not accurate to the new lineart, but the model is based off the old 00 Qan[T] design shown in the movie trailer as evidenced by the yellow chest plate with lack of antennas, the circular GN Condenser and the white sidevent walls.

So if the parts is connected to another part and it turn white, the plastic wont break at all?:confused:

For now it will not break, but its durability will not be that strong. Exert more force on it and it'll definitely break.
So in your case, which part exactly are you referring to?

it was quite tight when i connect it and it turn white(no cracks). So i was wondering will it be alright to leave it be? The structure of the parts can be seen in www.dalong.net PG 00 Raiser. As long as the force remains the same, does it mean it won't break too?:confused:

iTakemoto 2010-01-20 20:46

Was bored today so I decided to finally paint my SD Exia Repair :D
Can't be bothered to find my camera so i took the pics with my phone, hence the slight blur.

As far as my experience with ABS plastic pieces.. it's safe to say that it will not break for now. No gurantees in the future, but you're good for now.

I guess everything is not perfect.. i just straight build it without doing any errors and the plastic itself causes problems(good job Bandai:mad:)... so how long do u think it will last? 1 year? 2 year? If it did crack, is there a solution to repairing it? Getting a new model will really be a waste...:(

The clear parts are included as part of the "MG Clear Parts Campaign", which also includes many other MG's like the Victory Gundam. The Clear Parts won't be standard issue on the next batch of releases though AFAIK.

Everything looks fine and dandy from the front.....

Until you see it's back. What's with the trigger hanging behind the head ? Clearly a side effect of reusing the Claymore from the Blue Frame without much thoughts put into the redesign process.

And I just had to say, why the clear parts on the crouch ? That is akin to modeling with a transparent pair of pants.
