Panel Lining: Different people use different methods. A lot of people tend to overdo panel lining because they're trying to accentuate the detail but end up making it look obviously painted or inked in.

Personally (just me) I try to avoid panel lining if I've painted my kits. I usually just line the face of the Gunpla and that's it. Then again that's because most of my painted builds use a dark enough color that makes panel lining moot even with the blackest of black inks. (looks at MG Jesta and Titans MS he's built) ...that and I kind of get lazy.

But when I do end up panel lining (mostly for OOB builds with little actual painting done--my RGs), I end up using one of the very fine-point Gundam Markers and use different colors depending on the color underneath. Basically I trace the groove where the raised or recessed line detail is, and have a fine-tip cotton swab (the cosmetic kind) handy to wipe off any excess. Sometimes with a bit of alcohol, if I need to thin the ink a bit. It's just a little bit easier than the fine-tip brush I used to work with since my eyes are getting worse and I can't do as much handbrush work anymore.

I'd only use black for very dark sections. Grey ink is better on white and blue colored sections, while Brown ink is on red/yellowish surfaces. Panel lines on models, regardless of whether they're Gunpla or aircraft or tanks/whatever, are basically areas where on the real thing they would be either in shadow (due to lighting) or stand out due to smoke or other dirt effects. Some people like them crisp and clear, others like myself would prefer them to appear more subtle.

What are the odds for a HG Cathedral Gundam? Because I like it more than Denial, and I actually like Denial.

...I'm not surprised though. Still don't know why Pale Rider was only a P-Bandai/PS4 release exclusive.

Yeah, that would be a surprise. I still remember when Kamen Rider Blade King Form was made an exclusive...

I hate you Skye. I hate you. Well. I guess I'll just have to save up. Pale Rider and Proto Stark Jegan for next year then.

As for panel lining, generally I use my knife to score where I want to line, then line and then wipe away the excess, in order to try and get clear crisp lines.

Incidentally, have you built the Stark Jegan? What's it like?

I suggest you get online exclusives asap, as once they're gone, you never know when they will (if ever) be re-issued, especially the ones involving new molded parts

Personally have a few regrets on never picking up some kits when I had the chance

I happen to have the Stark Jegan too

Its a sweet little kit, solid, decent accessories

It does require some painting though, mostly yellow for the inside of the thrusters and various verniers/thrusters on the body/armor, and the missile pod camera's (or you could do red for those)

I'm excited to build it now: the fight between it and the Kyshatriya captured my heart, and I've been itching to get a Stark Jegan ever since. I especially love the missile pods :)

Exactly the reason why I have both kits hehe

Im still working on my Kshatriya though, those goddamn-hell-spawn-sleeve-markings I can never seem to get right..........

Is that a new SD Strike Freedom I see there? Silhouette, but still...

I kinda don't want to buy the RG Strike Freedom because I already own the Freedom and I like that better, but a new cool SD might be too hard to pass up on, lol. Now if you only we could get a cool looking SD like that for the Double X...

Skye629 2015-05-13 23:27

Holy crap, I never though I would see an inner frame like this

http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-yXg1-hV4IQ...ntitled-86.jpg


We also got news of the 1/144 Work loader or whatever its called that will be featured in Artesia's Sorrow

and.....

2 HGUC MSV Goufs??? Wut?! Are these for Origin or just Bandai starting to put out HG MSVs?

Rising Dragon 2015-05-14 00:00

I can't recognize that third silhouetted SD model. The first is the Unicorn Gundam, the second is the Strike Freedom, and the fourth is the 00 Gundam. The third, I'm drawing blanks on.

Tormenk 2015-05-14 00:49

Sword in hand, giant single V-Fin and scabbard at the side spells pretty much Astray Red Frame to me. Only oddity is the inclusion of the shield since Bandai is pretty consistent with this kind of thing.

Patriot's Blade 2015-05-14 01:01

to me the RG Red Frame's inner skeleton looks like its colored in the same manner as a human muscle tissue :heh:

This is one of the charms of the Red Frame for me, since it really resembles a muscular human wearing a Gundam armor.

I'm torn whether to get the RG or the MG. I like the MG because of all the gimmicks and the spare parts from the Blue Frame..

^ Yep. I told you Skye, entire new mold is no longer an issue for P-Bandai Exclusives. That P-Bandai MG Mega Bazooka Launcher above has proved my point :upset:. and....

.....as long as Bandai see money in it, P-Bandai Exclusive MG Mega Rider will most likely happen, though it may be far in the future after we got the long-overdue MG ZZ ver-2.

A fairly straightforward build, and I'm quite happy with it. I liked it so much I built two of them. :p

A tip for painting - black panel lining pen can actually be drawn over gundam marker paint. So when you're painting your thrusters, fill in yellow first, then panel line the black on top. MUCH easier than trying to keep black and yellow paint separate. I learned this the hard way.

Leg armor is a little loose, but not too loose. You do need to choose between running the bazooka or the rifle, since you don't have a left trigger.
