I'm staying sceptical and wait for some reviews first. I really hope Bandai can pull it off.

Speaking of frames, do all the current RGs use the same frame?

HasuMasu 2012-07-29 08:02

^ No, looking at the Freedom beside me and comparing it to pictures of the Mk. II it's easy to tell the Mk. II is...thicker? Not sure if that's the right word.

Nope, the advanced ms joints are unique. Ofcourse, both Zaku II shares the same frame; same case with Freedom and Justice.

Appel 2012-07-29 08:55

while they are somewhat unique they do share the same basic design.

i disagree on the design part though the side waist is similar in a way

the torsos are different but the general design of the limbs is very similar.
they did recyle far less pieces than i thought though^^ so yeah, looks like they are more different from each other than i thought :P the overall design is similar but then again, most MGs have similar frames as well. while unique they do share certain features and design aspects.

also, my MG blitz just arrived in germany about an hour ago^^ so depending on how quickly it gets through customs i will probably have it around wednesday. but maybe im super lucky and it gets through customs today and i will have it tomorrow! but thats doubtful. i just hope the DHL express guy arrives before i go to work if it arrives on tuesday... usually they are here around 7am though, so shortly before i leave.
as for paints, i decided to ditch the chrome spray paint. its too bright and it sprays on in really thick layers, i dont think thats what i want for the frame.
instead i will just mix black and silver enamel paint. that way i can make it as dark or bright as i want it to be and since i spray it on with my airbrush the layers will be very fine.
im really excited now, the blitz has always been one of my favorite desings^^

holy balls, i totally just saved my MG strike freedom O_O the action base connector in the crotch broke (probably due to the massive weight of the backpack) and it was about to fall down from the very top of my shelf! XD
so, id say make sure to check on your models with heavy backpacks every now and then. i had my strike freedom for about 2 years now and the connector broke.
also, because of this i can totally see why people who own the PG strike freedom had problems with the wings breaking off.

Curious, is it a clear Action Base 1?

I display most of my gunpla in hangar mode (i.e. standing) and rotates a few on aerial action poses.

the MG strike freedom full burst mode comes with a clear darkblue action base one with a custom connector.
now i took my RX-78-2 2.0 from its base and put the strike freedom on one of those default connectors for older models that come with the base. not ideal but it works rather well. seems to be solid enough.
the problem is that the strike freedom simply needs a base because of the heavy backpack...

Perfect time to try a different sturdier base.

i really dont have the money to order a new actionbase right now^^
so for now its on one of the clear bases that i bought while i was in japan. its brand new so that shouldnt be a problem.

well the pieces are all dried, i just cleaned up the cut marks (i sprayed everything while it still was on the runner because i am a lazy bum) so i just have to put it together now^^
i guess ill have it completed in a couple of hours.

As if my backlog wasn't big enough yet my birthday present is comming my way:

1/100 MG Rezel
1/100 MG Blitz Gundam
1/100 MG Marasai

1/144 RG Justice Gundam
1/144 HG Nadleeh

Not the most common choices, but they will be interesting to build :)

yeah^^
im done already :P i just added a last layer of topcoat. ill take a photo once that dried but that is gonna take some time. so i will probably post them tomorrow.
its a great model but not as great as the duel. it does have a few tiny problems, there are mainly a couple of pieces falling off and the lancer darts are really lose.
