they're stickers...bought at in local hobbys store...and don't ask me how did they got that, coz I don't know...:rolleyes:

Anyway...That metallic paint makes that Legend looks less Plain isn't it??...Legend got one hell of bring color I'd say (Even though it's my favorite from GSD), so that metallic paint to lighten it up...:)..
but to tell you the truth, I now think that Metallic color like that isn't that great....makes me wants to re-paint it all...but that'll be costly and tiresome, so I guess I won't...

@Miyamoto Shin
Nice! I really like the metallic finish you chose there... Legend is one of the few Gundams that can pull that off really well.

Nice paintjob, but I still see some seamlines.

that looks really good, ive been painting for years ( havent in a few years) but it looks just as good as anything i would have done. I only use brush for the fine details and use tamiya spray paints for the larger areas. I i dont really bother with the steam lines either its alot harder to paint because you have to tape a lot and that just takes a lot of time and hard work. So keep up the good work and i hope to see more painted kits in the future.

Very nice Legend. I hope my Gundams will come out nearly as nice when I get around to painting them (have to wait until I have the other one that's to have the same scheme in hand...)

Seam lines are a pain in the rear, though the ones on Gundam kits at least seem to be in manageable positions (and the fit is nice and tight on mine, which helps a lot to make them invisible). I've built regular model kits with big, ugly and very inappropriate seam lines that were nearly impossible to fix, that were supposed to be colors where any flaw stood out like a beacon. In comparison, Gunpla is a vacation...

(In fact, the Exia really is a break for me - I'm building a small armada of modern warships with some of them having upwards of three hundred tiny pieces to paint and glue, and photoetched railings and antennas and aaaaaaaargh....)

Here's an idea - I've been studying my Exia and the photos of the HG 00 on Dalong in anticipation of my next purchase, and I'm wondering if the 00 arms could fit on the Exia... after all, if one is good, and two is better, then three must be...? (come on, someone must have done this for a laugh already!)

I won't be able to test this for at least two weeks (one week for HLJ's holiday vacation to end + however long it takes them to get my stuff from Bandai since they're not released yet/out of stock + a week for delivery = WTB timeskip...)

The HG Exia's arms are attached to the body via a peg though, while the 00's are inserted with a ball joint. Hence, the arms are incompatible. Also, if you're talking about the GN Drive... the drives are attached to the back, not the arms.

Is this confirmed? Because I can definitely see this happening. All MS with GN Drives besides the Gundams shutting down and thus ending the GN Drive Tau problem. The Federation probably just kept on duplicating the GN Drive without looking at the software that connects it to Veda.

LoweGear 2008-12-30 23:28

More speculation on T.V.'s part actually, though it's one of the more likely explanations.

hi guys, i'm kinda new to painting gundams. i recently bought some tamiya enamel paint and an enamel thinner. if for example i want to paint the wingspan of the Destiny 1/100 gundam, what kind of ratio should i use to mix the paint and the thinner? if you guys can provide some additional tips for hand brushing gundams, that would be much appreciated!

i dont mix thinner with my paint and i get a pretty good result. And I think it really depends if you use a air brush because from what im told you need to thin out the paint for that so it dont clog the nozzle. So i think youll be just fine with just the paint right out of the the bottle, and if you can get some tamiya spray paint it works really great on those large areas and leaves a nice clean look.

If you do paint with a brush, i find that doing 2 coats works best but do one coat in a horizontal stroke then the next coat in a vertical stroke to lessen the visible brush lines when it drys.

Really pretty Trans-Am. The clear look suits it well

Alexus_Z3 2008-12-31 05:10

Very Pretty :love: are they going to sell it?

darkstrife 2008-12-31 06:12

thx for the advice vektor (shouldnt of bought the thinner ><), i'll be handbrushing my gundams, i'll also be using enamel paint because from what i've heard it has a better effect than acrylic. just wondering is it necessary to apply more than 1 coat and in what situations should i use gloss paint over flat paint?

That thing is screaming for built-in lighting :O
