There's almost nowhere to buy Gunpla where I live, there's this one store with an extremely limited selection of stuff like a Perfect Grade Zaku II, High Grade Wing Zero Custom and a really (Really!) tiny Dunbine, L-Gaim and Layzner model each sold seperately.

That is quite bad. There's quite a number here, but at times overpriced.

The modellers from Core-Works have left to found their own venture, Vicious Project.
Their first model: a conversion kit to make the Destiny Gundam.

If it's your first time with a PG, I would suggest Strike or Strike Rouge (easy compare to the others). Zeta is one of the best lookers to me, but popular opinion is Wing Zero Custom.

To your second question.... YES, airbrush and compressor is diffently good if you want to do this hobby full time.

So I just 15 mins ago ordered my very first gunpla, 1/100 scale Blaze Zaku Phantom (Rey version) and now I have some questions:

For those who own same kit : Is this kit any good, has it lot of errors/wrong scaled parts?

How posable it is (or gunpla in general)?
Is it good without painting or do i need to weather it or add nice little stuff?
Do I need to do some scratchbuilding?

I Have been modelling for about 9 years with varying results but this is my first time with gunpla! :D
And please drop some nice tips/tricks ofcourse :D

Thanks in advance!

Its pretty decent kit for what it is but nothing too special but very nice with its shields spread out and blaze pack open. But you'll need to do alot work on it because theres alot parts that need painting. Posablility wise it lacks proper leg articulation and the shields mounted on its shoulders weigh the arms down. But it isnt soo bad because the shoulder joint can pivot on a separate joint so you can tuck the shield behind the arm to balance out the weight.

The following pics are of my own completed 1/100 zaku phantom kits:

I got this image from Child of Mecha...

http://i71.photobucket.com/albums/i155/SNT1/mgseed.png

fake or real? post away...

kct 2006-06-24 10:13

I see a typo there >.> . But if it's for real, then good.

DarkWarrior 2006-06-24 10:54

Yeah.. Strike Freeddom Gundam? Looks like a fake to me.

I do think that we'll get those two in MG form eventually.. but that picture looks like a bad photoshop.

SNT1 2006-06-24 11:01

I wouldn't count on the typo being THE reason its a chop, I have "Core Brock" and Mount Lutch" on my MG GM manual... (Block and Latch) And the stargazer site had "SOTRY" for 'story' before they fixed it.

kct 2006-06-24 11:24

Wait, looking at it carefuly it does look a bit real. Especially the way the 2 MSes were drawn, typical art.

DarkWarrior 2006-06-24 11:38

Well, it's true that Bandai isn't exactly known for their english skills.. Phase Shit Armor comes to mind.

But I think I've seen that picture somewhere before.. I'm not completely sure though.

SlugZilla 2006-06-24 12:49

It's fake, it would've been news from way before if they were to release this summer which this pic addresses.

dbj 2006-06-24 22:56

i want to ask is there anywhere i can get a gundam Destiny MG 1/100? i found alot of HGs around but i prefer the MGs. OH i heard there's alot of fake model kits now, how to tell em apart?

OmegaZEROCustom 2006-06-24 23:56

There is a new resin conversion kit being produced by a group of former Core-Works people, but there isn't any confirmed release of a MG Destiny.

nightbringer360 posted the link to the site at the top of the page.

M_Flores 2006-06-25 00:03

lol... my manual says '∞ Jusutice Gundam' on the back page as well.

dbj 2006-06-25 00:07

kct 2006-06-25 00:09

Oh yeah, do anyone have pictures of this custom Zeta Gundam model called the Strike Zeta Gundam? It's one from an old magazine some time ago, showing a Zeta with a dark colour scheme, a shield with sharp plane-like shape intead of the angular one, have an inverted Waverider mode (the wing plate on top instead of bottom), and have a 'U.N.T. Spacy' sticker on the shield or something like that.

dbj: That's a Cosmic Region figure, CE-verse version of the Gundam Fix Figuration.

GameraBaenre 2006-06-25 04:18

Since I havent finished any Gundam related kits in a while.. here's something I pulled out of storage and sorta got back into working on this:

Word of advice, don't get the 1/60 lightning edition, it is a really poor quality model with a bad gimmick and looks horrible and is out of proportion. Just show abit of patience in waiting out.

I believe that version of Destiny is the equivilent of a 'action figure' in that its built for posing and already pre-decorated.
