Honestly, the more you say those, the more I want Bandai not to make those , though I want an MG Astrea and the type-f version

why would bandai make so early a kit that will go into competition with the excellent 1/100 HG (sorry but No grade is so lame!)??? It's not the centre of the series so it's a kit really for the big fans.
Maybe in like 5 years you will get it just like we got red and blue frame eventuelly when the HG is technically a bit dated.

Now they really should make a MG zaku warrior!, excellent kit to repaint 10 times and the 1/100 HG is getting a bit dated :)

HG 1/100 are excellent? In terms of what? I find newer 00 NG 1/100 kits better.

I agree that we should get an MG Zaku Warrior. But taht would only mean Bandai will milk us with its variations.

Isn't that always the case?:heh: Look at the numerous UC Zakus and the original Gundam.

Anyway, just got my MG Destiny EBM. Though when I got the package, it came with a letter from the shop saying that the yellow Gundam marker was sold out. I was kinda disappointed there but at least they gave me a refund.

Yes, I know :P Just saying the obvious

StrikeFreedomV2 2011-10-12 02:45

So I started building the MG Strike Freedom and this is what I got so far:



I colored some of the vents and parts that will be exposed even with the armor on with a golden gundam marker.

To clarify, I was refering to only the 1/100 astraea, which has no grade slapped on it, but i find it stupid not to put HG on it as it is a better kit then a 1/144 HG.

Yes we can repaint the Zaku Warrior quite a lot, but that's what bandai likes making alot of models from the same sculpt. Mean lots of revenues for little investments.

As i am a Zaku Warrior addict it will bankrupt me for shure :heh:

I knew I misunderstand what you said. Thanks for the clarification.

I don't have the HG 1/144, but I love the amount of weapons that comes with it

I've been working on my MG Destiny EBM for 4 hours straight now and damn I'm impressed with the build. Not yet finished though but it will probably finished by tomorrow.

To the experienced modelers out there, I have a question. What's the fastest and safest way to separate the 3 combined fingers of an MG? I've been sawing them off with a hobby knife and it takes me about 30mins each.

Don't separate the fingers. It's never a good idea to do it from what I understand. Just leave those separate fingers to the PG kits. =)

If you still want to separate the fingers, then take your time doing what you have been doing.

And you should really give the MG Destiny EBM a full paint job. ;)

Enjoy the MG kit.

I've been separating my MGs' fingers ever since I got my first one(MG Gundam Ver. 2.0) and I haven't had a problem in doing it except that it just takes a lot of time and needs to be handled with care.

hmm.. hobby saw? not very sure what it is called but its like a hobby knife with a jagged edge somewhat like a mini saw. if you bought your hobby knife from a hobby store they should stock it too. :)

personally i prefer it when the 3 fingers arent seperated. that just adds more small pieces that can fall of and the articulation isnt exactly limited when they stay together^^

I've seen these special 1/100 hands you can buy, which are fully articulated. Might be better than endlessly carving away :P

I will. I already slapped all the armor on and will probably gonna take some pictures tomorrow. Whatīs left to build are the backpack, the rifles and the Action Base.

anyone have a size comparison of a SD against an HG or MG, thinking about picking up some, are they easier are harder to put together since they're so small?

Even though I donīt own any SD kits and therefore canīt make a comparison, I will tell what I know about them. They have very few parts and are very easy to put toghether. But you need to paint them to actually make them look good.
