I really like the lighter blue on 00. Which gets me thinking why are robots always so colorful, like in space. It makes for a better target, i would have just made them the color of what ever environment they would be in, nothing crys out shoot me im here being a big red target.

It's a traditon that begins with RX-78-2 to give the main protagonist mech a Blue-White-Red scheme job in Gundam to illustrate who's the boss around.

its bee that way since even before gundam, with like Getta robo and all them other 60's style super robots and such. but i would think camouflage would be a better tactic when going into battle.

does anyone have a guide for the use of topcoat? bought a can recently to try it out.

Ugh seeing the 1/100 00-Riser in designer colors makes me wonder if I should just wait for a MG which could probably be around 6000-7000 considering the 00-Riser with the stand was 5000. UGH BANDAI.

Naturally then the viewer wouldn't be able to see the Gundam/Mech in space then.
Wouldn't make for too great of a show.

Clear paints huh?Well that sounds like the answer.Haven't seen any of those,I guess I'll check again.Thanks.

So,how do one usually change the colour of a beam saber[That is coloured not colourless]?Do you simply spray the clear paint over it or do you do something else first?

the thing about space is that its so big that, even at the "close" ranges of mobile suit gundam, you're still so far apart that all you see is a spec of reflected light - which you'll see no matter what color the suit is.

I've painted beam parts to red from a pink base before and it work out fine. Tried blue on pink and it turned purple so that will give you some idea how it works.

Otherwise I'll point you to this.

Not a translation but it counts as a review I guess.

I recently started collecting the gundam models:)

I've started off with the Celestial being models first.. They are the 1/144 models...

I'm thinking of going to the bigger ones soon :D

I heard the 00 Riser is out now here, so i'll think about that one:D

Thanks for the tip and the link.I guess the colours may merge eith the original colour......but if I colour a coloured beam saber with a clear acrylics paint,the result should be a clear coloured saber as well right?

By the way,is there away to 'remove' the colour of a coloured kit beam saber to a completely colourless one?It sounds like a good way to change the colour of a beam saber if it can be done without damage to the beam saber itself





A bit of a redundant question,I'm sure it has been asked before but what it explained why the 1/100 Gundam 00 S2 Gundams didn't have torso movements like the S1 Gundams.I've heard the reason for 00 that so it can support the 0-Raiser but have not heard the reason why it was done so for the other Gundams as well.

randus 2009-05-10 10:50

I don't think there are any ways to removed a beam part color if it already has color, since it is not painted, if that is what you meant. Especially since the color is molded into the part already. >>

Well, the lack of the waist joints for the rest are probably for consistency's sake, I guess. =P

hey I am new to gundam modeling, I had done one 1/100 hg model before and got through it with minimal mishap. Well I have been given a 1/100 mg model as a gift. There are some interesting steps in here that I didn't see in my other model.

it says メッシュペイプ which i am guessing translates to mesh paper? There is a small ruler at the bottom of the page with markings on it and it looks like a tube or a strip of paper is inserted into the model. Could anyone explain what this is or where i could find that information. It is found a few times in the instructions and googling the katakana or my guessed translation. it is put up inside a part and then it dissapears a short time later so not quite sure what it is or what it is for.

I got that in the MG MK II, um it will ask u to cut it to a certain length when it is required on the model kit

archaeous 2009-05-10 19:18
