Body Pink - White (40%) + Pink (30%) + Yellow (20%) + Red (10%)
Body White - White (100%)
Body Brown - Mahogany (100%)
Backpack Purple - Red (40%) + Pink (30%) + (Purple 30%)
Joint Gray - Neutral Gray (100%)
Camera Eye Green - Yellow Green (100%)
Yellow - White (50%) + Yellow (40%) + Red Brown (10%) + Black (tiny bit)
Sensor Blue - Sky Blue (100%)

I have mixed colours for the same model but in 1/144 scale before. I believe that this guide is good enough as it uses primary colours. For yellow, if you want to scrimp on effort, you could try White (50%) + Yellow (45%) + Red (5%) to obtain a similar result. As for the sensor and eye colours, you can use other methods such as clear colours over Silver or whatever you fancy.

Thanks a lot. Appreciate the help... :)

Depends on the kit. The "HG" Tallgeese III was simply the No Grade Tallgeese II kit (since that one had the extra Tallgeese I head) with extra parts runners added on. Some conversions, like the 1/100 Astraea and Avalanche Exia could not be converted back into the base Exia form despite using pretty much the same frames. The degree of interchangeability would depend on the actual engineering used in a future MG Exia R2.

Call my cynical but I think Bandai will release a whole new R2 MG instead of just a conversion kit, despite having almost the same frame. Not only can they retain most of the Exia MG casts, they can also market the R2 at a normal MG price.

From the manual of the 1/144 HG O Gundam, the recipe for Blue is Cobalt Blue (85%) + Indy Blue (10%) + White (5%). If you do not have Indy Blue, I believe that omitting it and adjusting the proportion of White should yield a visually identical colour.

It's always best to test the colour on the corresponding plastic before committing to painting.

By the way, I just realised that as I am translating the colour names from Japanese Katakana to English, there may be cases where the Japanese name differs from the English name on the paint jar label. You may wish to bring your manual along or remember the Japanese name when you buy the paint so that you can get the right colour you want.

It will actually be better to show the completed kit in it's out of box build without the add-on effect here for those of us with neither the skill nor time to sand, paint, etc.

From the already released out of box images of the MG Exia, it doesn't really look much different (I was under the impression that the MG Exia shown at the Shizuoka Hobby Show was an unpainted model) :heh:

HGUC Hi-Nu Review

Looks like one of the best HG kit out yet.

But too bad I've just invested heavily on a new Monitor for Full HD gaming and viewing purposes.

Hi-Nu is shorter than Nu? That's not right...


Still... An awesome work of art =)

LoweGear 2009-06-12 10:45

It is actually. The Hi-Nu's official stats since the beginning only give it a head height of 20 meters - 2 full meters shorter than the Nu's head height of 22 meters. Thus the Hi-Nu being smaller than the Nu is accurate.

post Size Miniaturization development era in MS research?, oh noes!, it got shrunk! :heh:

LoweGear 2009-06-12 13:08

Actually, the Hi-Nu Gundam is not actually the upgrade to the Nu. In story, the Nu never existed: it was always the Hi-Nu all along. Kinda like how Endless Waltz makes it so that it was the Katoki ver. Gundams that fought in the final battle of the TV series.

HG Susanowo features from Bandai HobbySite:

- The components on Susanowo's waist are his thrusters, with deployable claws
- Newly designed double-insertion type joint for the thigh joint, unlike the order single joint for Flag and Enact.
- Two ways to mount the sabers: individually on the waist thrusters, or on the rear for the combined version.
- Display base included.
