Originally I intended to top-coat the whole thing with mr hobby matte, but I heard that top-coats tend to affect the shininess of the metallic paint negatively.

You do not use matte for that, you use gloss

Also check if the metalic spray is enamel or lacquer, if it's lacquer metalic then use lacquer coat. If it's enamel metalic use enamel coat

Depends on the type of paint and what you want to do with it. Tamiya's Metallic Gold and Metallic Silver sprays are absolutely not meant to be topcoated, and most metallic spray paints will actually indicate whether you can or can't topcoat over them.

On the other hand I've used Dullcote on hand-brushed Metallic Blue and liked the effect it gives.

I haven't used Mr Hobby Rough Gold, so not sure how that would look with gloss or dull coat..

So I have a quick question that will need a long answer. I want to start painting my models, where do I start and is there a guide of some sorts?

Check out Youtube, even general model painting tutorials should help

Its nice too to see the people in action so you get an idea of what to do

If you ever need an outdoor toilet in scale with your HGUC kits. I don't know what's scarier: the fact that they've actually made this, or the fact that I know a LOT of people who'll want one of these as part of their Gundam diorama...

ZeroXSEED 2014-11-11 10:57

Well they also made plastic meatbuns because.... reason.

Soooo over the weekend, at the Gunpla Expo here in Malaysia, I bought a ReZEL Commander. I wasn't planning on buying it, but it kinda happened.

There were a couple of reasons for that:

1) I'd been meaning to get the ReZEL Commander anyway

2) The price was okay

3) You needed to buy a Gunpla in order to get it autographed by Meijin Kawaguchi.

Will post pic later of the autographed box. Totes forgot to get my manual autographed, orz.

Autographing went something like this:

Meijin: *sighs*

Me: "Moeagare gunpla!"

Meijin: :D *fist pump*

Me: XD *thumbs up*

Desruprot 2014-11-16 22:50

Thats Ameijin Wild Goose :D, nice job getting the autograph. Good luck with the ReZel.

Wild Goose 2014-11-17 02:02

:heh:Thanks! After I bought the ReZEL, however, I noticed the last freaking Stark Jegan on sale there. But I was already out of money. :frustrated:

Ah, well. After looking at the entries for GBWC 2014, I've made up my mind:

Next year, I'm going to build my MG Jesta, then I'm going to submit it for GBWC 2015, and see how far a straight build gets me, lol. :p

You met THE Meijin Kawaguchi IRL???!!!

Awesome man



BTW the HGUC Rezel Commander is an awesome kit, does require some painting though

MeisterBabylon 2014-11-17 13:29

Gunpla transcends all barriers. :p

I hope MG Double-X won't get cancelled. Seriously, these MGs can still got cancelled even after being displayed in Gundam Expo or similar exhibition/fair/con, so...fingers crossed (remember Gafran, F-90, AGE-3 Normal & AGE-FX?).

And oh, MG Zeta Evolve version? Those are nice.

@ZeroXSEED
After staring at MG DOM Dozzle custom, don't you think it looks like wearing Indonesian or Malaysian traditional clothes? Heck, maybe I'll buy that DOM just because it looks like it :p.

IT'S FUCKING NOTHING

Tormenk 2014-11-20 06:34

No mention about the next RG? Supposedly it's going to be the 00 Gundam + 0 Raiser.

Double X at 4500 yen is kinda suprising. And MG Exia DM lol. Hopefully they get new ankles for it or it's going to suck anyway.

StratoSpear 2014-11-20 07:24

Grey Wolf's Zeta is.... exclusive? WHYYYYY!!???

On another note, we now know there's gonna be a Wallepocalypse 2015.

EDIT: Btw guys... I don't know if this is posted yet but
