I have ones for the Agguy, B3 Gouf, Gundam, MK.2, Qubeley, Zaku I, Dom and Sword Calamity.

The other ones are for tanks, boats and submarines.

I've been thinking of getting one, but I wouldn't want to repaint the entire thing in gold. Ugh, painting gold.

Here's some pictures of the 1/144 HGUC Hyaku Shiki. Its too bad that it was too shiny that it leaves a blur(I suck with cameras too).

I hate to nitpick, but don't you mean Acguy? I never heard of Agguy before..

Haha, SD Hyaku Shiki.. with gold plating too! Looks awesome! :D Just out of curiosity, where'd you buy them? I tend to stay away from SD kits, but I'm really tempted right now...

Yes, it's a typo.

I bought them locally at a hobby shop but I'll tell you which set they are:
1/144 - HGUC(obviously :D)
SD(smallest one) - Three pack Zeta set from a G-Generation series(can't remember which G-Generation)
SD(bigger one) - Limited Dress up one that was released back in the early 90's

I posted pics in the last model discussion thread with the Sazabi, Zaku II and Hiyaku shiki and might as well share it since its still in my photobucket account:

I also had Nu and Zeta(deluxe kit with musha armor and Z plus conversion) but I lost most of theose parts and left with Nu's head/helmet.

Those are plain awesome, I haven't got any SD Gundams for a longtime, my last one was a God Gundam


EDIT:

Question, I know airbrushes are always the best way to go.......but does anyone know if those canned enamel spraypaints are worth using on Gundam models? I noticed some while browsing enamel paints.

Also can anyone tell me what some people I sometimes see using, which look like sticks used to skewer parts so they can dry when painted and easily painted when holding them and where I could find some?

It depends really...
if I need to paint the base quick I just use a cheap can of spray (lacquer) from hardware store...
I'd expect using can of spray would be more expensive and the finish will be lot thicker than air brushing.

For the skewers, I get mine from local Chinese grocery shop for A$3.50 for the bag of 50... And use aligator clip for the small piece with that you can't use skewers...

Nesty 2006-01-18 21:21

i'd love to see the sword calamity being built, can someone hook me up with that vid?

dj898 2006-01-18 21:23

Thats a strange shade of blue, I'll assume its just the light.

JanthraX^ 2006-01-19 08:47

yea it's the flash.... it's bit lighter than Titanz blue actually...

JanthraX^ 2006-01-19 15:12

I think it would have looked better with a GM,

but what you have done so far is great and making a setting is even better!
is for a compo, of for fun?

dj898 2006-01-19 16:01

half way thru the project I got sort of doing in similar scheme of TTT...
my diorama is based of pre-TTT era hence the colour scheme and bit different head...
still missing all the minor details

well I got this half finished Gundam ver 1.5 from mate of mine so really had no choice... :D

No it's just for fun - and I've been working 10-20 min every night except couple of days when my cat died...

If I need I should be able to finish in 2-3 days provided the weather is fine...
Due to recent rain we got over here I had to delay the painting for couple of days too!

portgas D ace 2006-01-19 17:30

haha this is pretty funny.... i made the striker systems awesome and they fit the PG one and i painted my ZETA really good and the camera arrived.... problem is that the camera was damaged during shipping so i cant use it (curse you fedex) and now i have to return it back to sony and wait forever for it to come again....

nightbringer360 2006-01-19 18:51

As far as the skewer sticks are concerned, just look around a supermarket for kebab sticks. Stick a bit of blu-tac on the end and you've got some nice parts holders.

And portgas - looking forward to see the pictures of your PG Strike with the Striker systems ... and to see how they fit.

dj898 2006-01-19 19:26

I found the bamboo skewer sticks often found at Asian grocery store is perfect - not too thin nor too thick and just right length at around 150mm... and helluva cheaper than local Woolies/Coles...

DarkWarrior 2006-01-19 22:54

Hmm, I don't really keep up with Gunpla news or know if this is important.

But anyways, I was browsing HLJ.com, and I noticed that MG Wing Ver. Ka, and MG Wing Zero were discontinued.. does this mean anything?

And for skewer sticks, I got a huge pack at my local crafts store for around 3 bucks. Not a bad deal, even though they require a little bit of cutting to get alligator clips to fit on.
