Simple really. ^__^
It's in 1/144 scale and the conversion kit is for 1/100 scale...
There are fair number of gunpla modellers who do 1/100 scale mainly - me included though I use 1/144 for vinette/diorama due to the base size.

Here's the 2nd 1/100 scale one I did...

Well here some images of my Xbone while i ready my SF for building.
there are some parts not painted on my xbone ... got lazy .. the thing that holds the light sabers and the back pack gray parts and also the boosters. I didnt paint the light sabers ether .... u can tell the difference between the whites of the light saber and the rest of the gundam LOL .... I didnt end up lining it with pens like somone suggested me to do the stickers really help make it look heaps better without lines ... well hope u like it.

Background of the 2nd and 3rd pic.

Already finished with straight building of the Zeta (plus decals and panel-lining). Needs some layer of top coat or something.

Wait.. what the hell? Korea gets new model kits weeks before Japan does? :twitch: Is there a reason why Bandai does that?

it's something to do with shipping and etc.
or the distributor in Korea are allowed to release the new kits before Japan's release date...

Yes it is rather expensive but when you won it as prize it doesn't cost you much does it? ^__^

Lolz. Lucky bastards. I want one...that and the Zaku. I would chain them up, and put them at my front door. :heh:

WaytoDawn 2007-01-22 04:57

ok, i just recently got a can of flat topcoat. And an modelling knife. And so i decided to try it first on something i'd done earlier. This is my Murasame that i made last yr and at that time i didn't have the right equipment so the sprue marks are still obvious even after i trimed them with the knife. I just Sharpened the V-fin and added topcoat. These aren't very sharp cause i just shot them with my 2 MP phone.

From Gunota

MG Strike Noir - March, 4,725 yen
HGUC Mass-Produced Gelgoog Cannon - March, 1,680 yen
EX Model Hildolfr - 1/144, March, 7,140 yen
1/100 Akatsuki Full Set - w/ gold plating, March, 7,350 yen
HCM-Pro Gelgoog - Kuspen version, March, 2,100 yen
HCM-Pro Mass-Produced Gelgoog - IGLOO version, March, 2,100 yen


Oh wow, Bandai decided to have one version with both packs for the Akatsuki. Neato. Unfortunately...MORE EXPENSIVE THAN FRIGGIN MG SF FULL BURST. Ugh....I don't want to pay $60 (and then probably at least $10 for shipping) and then have to remove the plating crap -_-;

DarkWarrior 2007-01-22 23:06

Holy crap, I can't believe it... another Strike variant for a MG. I don't have anything against the Strike Noir, but where's my MG Destiny? :frustrated: And ROFL @ 1/100 Akatsuki's price.

SNT1 2007-01-22 23:21

Akatsuki @7000 yen., f that! WTF. W-T-F!

But a Strike Noir.... could be my first Strike MG :)

MG Hi-Nu that Gunota just posted. I think I'm used to the redesign now.. it looks pretty good.

And I'm hoping that Bandai didn't decide to reuse the old MG Strike inner-frame for the Strike Noir. If they didn't, then I'm definitely getting one. Despite my earlier reaction, Strike Noir is the only Strike variant I actually like. 1/100 Akatsuki has me stumped though.. the fully plated Gold Frame was 3800 yen, why is Akatsuki's price nearly double? Does the extra pack really add that much?

duotiga 2007-01-22 23:45

MG Strike Noir..i guess is taken the baseline as MG Strike ..i just hoping for double beam rifle and stand...

As for Akatsuki....come together i guess will be the same package as Zaku Wizards packs but more expensive since is GOLD PLATED....
