Awesome, I just started researching the AB topic, but I think something like the MM would be perfect for what I need.

I bet most people in this board don't even know what AoZ is... :heh:

Nor is it easy to access any AoZ related media in English.

Nice work on the Hazel though.

Even though I think SEED is lame and UC is better infinitely, I actually might consider getting a MG Destiny: it looks pretty good. Of course, I'll customize it and repaint it. Man, I hate how the sword is blue and the "super" gun is green.

I too am I diehard UC fan but the articulation on the Seed MGs is rather nice.

I like you hazel though that is one good looking HG, btw can you recommends an affordable airbrush?

kct 2007-09-23 21:34

Seems like Destiny is shaping up to be a really good-looking MG.

Ah, finally done my mk-II
Didn't want the stand it comes with to go to waste so I mod it rather than buying an action base hehe

What scale is that?

endiv 2007-09-26 21:41

i have a question :< ,

I've been working on a gundam model for a while (sanding/painting/and etc) and I'm finally at the point where I've finished priming and ready to paint. I'm using the spray cans from Tamiya and theres a warning (saying that it contains chemicals that can cause cancer and reproductive problems)... Now I don't have a spray booth so I just spray outside usually with a regular mask on.. now for these paints will i need to buy a respirator or anything for painting outside ?

I personally wear 3M mask with the dust filter - you know the thing workers wear at the work site with big yellow round thing in the middle with two smaller opening at both sides... ^ ^

Ok... recently an aunt of mine got me a model kit as a birthday present, the SF Full Burst Mode to be exact. I was thrilled and excited (mayor WTF!? at the size of the box also), since I had saw previously on the web some of these models but never paid much attention to them.
Must say I quite enjoyed the process of building this guy although at some moments, I got really tired of cutting the pieces, sanding them and then, painting the freaking lines with simple black ink and a fine pen (no Gundam markers lol).
Complaints however: stickers for the sensors of the head :upset:? What kind of bad joke was that? They looked simply horrible, so I decided to invest a little extra $ and time to make my own sensors using some simple plastic, paint and superglue, I must say I was quite satisfied with the outcome but I fear every other kit has them, right? >_<
Another fail, the gold parts... meh, only a couple of them are "gold" plated looking, the rest is a crappy yellowish color >_<
The "full burst mode" thing with the funnels... I can say it is quite ingenous, but not that good looking:

http://img206.imageshack.us/img206/2...0163qs4.th.jpg

In the end... yeah... no gloss coating or any kind of major modification so far, only added a little bit of gold coloring with an injection pen to some parts that were requiring it (feet, front of the funnels, propulsors of the shoulders)

Final photos, took me a while to finally decide to put the other stickers for the details all over the armor and structure of the Gundam, but in the end, they didn't looked as bad as I thought at first.

Final thoughts, I really look forward to get more kits, already ordered the Crossbone Gundam X-1 V. Ka, however, since I live in Mexico, I can't afford to go crazy ordering by the web these beauties thanks to the shipment charge. So... any tips for when I get taht next kit or websites to order them?

LightningZERO 2007-09-29 10:09

It's so sexy!!!

But so far we don't see any pictures of the special edition with the WOL or palm cannon effect equipped

Meehlimo 2007-09-29 23:29

Critias 2007-09-30 20:26

WHOA.

I'm sold. The Pal Cannon doesn't look so bad now but still...but WOL are pretty ace.

LightningZERO 2007-09-30 23:14

Please...please don't tempt me to buy this one

While the palm cannon is meh, WOL is definately awesome!!!

Is this special edition limited? And when is it released?

sylharion 2007-10-01 04:14

can anyone tell me why i cant access any pages from gundam base anymore ? whenever i try to open a page to have a look at the new stuff it keeps popping a message in koren and doesnt allow me to go past it . thanks

sylharion 2007-10-01 04:31

can any1 tell me where i can get those custom rifles that are seen in some models from those websites ? or do they just scratch build them ?

ManiacalTyrant 2007-10-01 16:06

Those WoL are definitely pretty nice. But I'm not spending so much more for a few pieces of plastic, if you catch my flow.

White Rice 2007-10-01 22:14

I'm planning on picking up a Zaku Ver. 2 soon I was wondering which pant colors would be best to use?

I prefer Tamiya TS Paints
http://www.ontracks.co.uk/library_gu...praypaints.htm

I hope someone has some insight or past experience with which colors would be most accurate.

philmein 2007-10-01 23:03

So, yeah, I don't regret buying the WOL version at all.

That new pic up there is certainly amazing!!!

LightningZERO 2007-10-02 00:06

WOL is awesome. Palm Cannon effect is ok, but the boomerang effect is lame

And does the special edition has shining joint ?

Chrome plated joints, I dont like the palm & saberang effect parts looks like both are moulded in plain clear plastic.
