HG Freedom: Cool, but there is RG for anyone who wants REALLY good 1/144.

MG Rinascita Alba: Cash-grab much?

i finished my 144 Portent Gundam 3 days ago and just got around to taking a few pics of it. i did use most of the stickers to get the foily shine on the clear green pieces it really didnt take too long to build but i did get around to giving it some custom touches on the antennae. i hope i didnt go over the top too much but i found painting the leading edges of the antenna green do add to its look. the green isnt 100% matched as im not that great mixing paints but im satisfied with it. i never could do a 100% match to the runners, this green was a bit tough to match.

i find it a pretty decent model as far a fitting the pieces go together. i was able to solve most problems with some clear paint to hold 1 clear green piece on the leg. the leg/hip joints are still a bit too loose to my liking but i did make them slightly better fitting than without adding some paint to thicken the parts together.

i hope the pic links show in the post, havent gotten the hang of putting album pics to show in my posts yet. i dont really pose the models much. i usually chose 1 pose and leave it on display.

^ Still not sure how Bandai will make a decent (un-flimsy) mechanism out of Katoki's flawed-designed Dragon Hangs. But I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and I'd like to be pleasantly surprised.

I'm currently looking for two specific MS but I can't seem to find them on the Gundam 2015 catalogue, assuming they exist, are there any HG sets of the Gold Frame and an HG Unicorm that can switch back and forth from destroy mode to Unicorn mode?

If by HG Gold Frame you mean this guy:
Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread) Then yes, it exists. But it's an Online-Exclusive, meaning: if you don't live in Japan, you'll likely have to pay more for it (usually double the prize). On the other hand, HG Astray Gold Frame Amatsu Mina-custom is a regular release, but HG Amatsu Gina-custom is another exclusive.

As for HG Unicorn....no. There's no such thing as HG Unicorn that can switch-mode back and forth. There are sets that contain the Gundam in Unicorn-mode & Destroy-mode, but they're still two separate kits.

What's the difference between the Mina and Gina Gold frames?

You can visually distinguish them after looking at their legs. Also, Amatsu Mina has additional weapons (Totsuka no Tsurugi) on its hips and (Tsumuha no Tachi) left arm.

If you buy HG Amatsu Gina Exclusive, you have the option parts to turn it into HG Amatsu Mina. But you can't do vice versa if you buy HG Amatsu Mina.

To add onto Obelisk's post/advice, I'd get the standard release Mina version. The Gina exclusive is gold plated, so it makes the expensive exclusive even more expensive to get, especially since the run is already over. So its pretty hard to find now, and of course sellers that do have it are marking up the price due to all the above

YES INDEED!

Wonder if they'll make the blueish green Heavyarm as well. Quad mini gun!

Can anybody tell me anything about the Wing Honoo? I'm thinking of expanding into Wing Gundams but besides the tallgeese 1, none of the other suits are geared towards my tastes.

Slight NSFW (thanks to some pictures of anime figures) but I took a lot of pictures of interesting Gunpla that made it to the final round of the Gunpla competition. From ACGHK 2015.

You mean the HGBF Wing Zero Honoo? Technically its not from Wing, but a Build Fighters design based on the actual HG Wing Zero

Yeah, I want the honoo, anything you can tell me about it? Weapons, accessories and such?

Rising Dragon 2015-07-30 01:32

Far as I can tell, the Wing Zero Honoo has the Twin Buster Rifle and two beam sabers, like the base Wing Zero, and it also has converted the inner halves of the wing binders into detachable solid-state swords. The WZH's shield has also be heavily customized. The wiki also lists additional armaments, including Hyper Caletvwlchs, which I guess are special reconfigurable weapons made up of various different weapons.

According to the wiki, there are two Feather Swords that can form at least four different types of weapons, and it can also use the Twin Buster Rifle Kai, which I'm assuming is the EW Wing Zero's rifle. The Gunpla also has a Flame System, but I don't know any details about that. The WZH also apparently has a variant called the Wing Zero Flame Feder, which is the same but with two more wing attachments, which might be the Feather Swords. There's not a whole lot of information to work with.

- Kit-wise, the only way you can get the Flame Feder would be to get the Hobby Japan issue with the special parts. And to make a proper Flame Feder you'll need TWO of the same special parts. EG order the same magazine twice, as you'll need two to make a pair fo the Feather Knife parts and holders.

Does anyone here have experience in parts recasting? I intend to rework my old 1/100 Avalanche Exia and the 1/100 Astraea, and I was hoping to recast two copies of the MG Exia's head to use. Have tried to use epoxy mold to make a part, but ended up breaking the original. =/

wavehawk 2015-07-30 03:43

The one time I tried I gave up. I bought silicone cast material to duplicate parts but kept mixing them wrong and they didn't take (EG didn't solidify or dried leaving glaring gaps that made the mold unusable). I haven't used Epoxy putty to make a cast but considering I use epoxy putty to sculpt scratch parts I don't think it's a good idea to use that as mold cast material.

Silicone is more often used since you can flex it off when dry, but the cost is horrendous (my small batch set me back $40 back in 2008, it costs way more than that now). I'd only really recommend casting parts if you plan to make a LOT of copies or else you need to do things to the copy that you can't do to the original for some reason or other.

If you are part of a modelling group, you could even ask some of your mates if they have spare bits you can use. I'm sure someone may have a spare Exia head or somethign workable.

To make long story short, just watch this video for reference:
