I got a RG Crossbones Gundam for $20 and I need advice on nippers. I have a rx-78 I started but it looks terrible, because I do not have nippers. I bought a cheap crossbones to use as a test bed for them.

A little sneak peak of what I've been working on.

It's the first gundam I've worked on in about 6-7 years and the first that I've actually taken the time to panel line and properly decal. Coming along, just waiting on some grey panel liners to arrive so that I can finish up the white armor sections.

Awesome fun to build this guy, and I really love how low key the decals are. Nothing too mad, though I didn't quite go for an anime accurate look. I'm eyeing up the extra forms add-on kit, if it ever actually ends up instock anywhere accessible...

justavisitor 2020-10-03 08:26

That barbatos looks so amazing....always wonder whether barbatos can stand well. I have a hg Grimgerde at home...it's great but I really wonder the designer of Grimgerde in the IBO universe ever gave a deep thought about making the suit to be able to stand firm on the ground :D

I have a question about old kits....I am thinking of buying a hg the o from a store. but I checked and bandai released the kit back in 2002. I know that bandai probably reproduces those kits every now and then. What is the chance of me seeing a kit that was really produced in 2002 and has been waiting for his master in the last 18 years?

My second question is, if I buy a first hand kit that was really produced in 2002 (and it's "new" and hasn't been unboxed, so every piece is still being sealed in a plastic bag). What can I expect from the quality? For example, will the plastic become so brittle and easy to break due to time? I don't mind the look or moveable range. I am just talking about whether the quality will decay due to time. It will probably, but how serious it will be?

Thanks in advance

Damn, this new season of anime is pretty intense that it made me forget about the Gundam stuffs.

Very nice build there, Drake. Great detailing too. It's a joy staring at your work-photos. Whenever someone post their works here, it always put a smile on my face ;). Keep at it.

Also, about the add-on kits. If I were to get one, I'd probably put on the space configurations coz we can't get it properly anywhere else in 1/100 scale without masking & painting parts.

Don't worry, Bandai will keep reprinting those kits, especially a line as popular as the HGUC. All you have to do is to wait & keep an eye on their releases.

But the chance of you getting an actual first-release old kit can be really slim depending on gunpla sales/availability in your region. For me, five years ago, I came across a gunpla sales inside a mall. They sell dozens of old Gelgoog MGs. I didn't grab them coz I really had no interest on those old Gelgoog MGs.

I have bought & built old kits like the original MG Alex & MG God. Both of them are of great quality when it comes to aging. Even the rubber parts of my Alex' shoulders still looks & feel good today. Five years ago, I actually bought another old kit. It was MG Super Gundam (Gundam MK.II + G-Defensor) from the Zeta show. I haven't built it yet, but I've checked the runners and everything feels great. Even the cloth materials for MK.II's cables still feel good. Just don't treat those old kits harshly.

One warning: the rub-transfer decals of the old MGs are very easy to be scraped off. If you want your decals to keep sticking, spray some coat after you apply them on your kits.

Thanks for the answer!! Good to know. So the one I see in the store is probably not really from 2002 :heh:. And even if it is, like you said, it is probably in good condition.

Too bad bandai doesn't really do hg revive anymore. And even if they do, it's p-bandai (looking at you, rick dias)

Drake 2020-10-06 17:18

Thanks guys! The MG Barbatos is actually pretty stable, and can even hold a the mace is a host of poses without an action base. Its genuinely the best MG I've ever built, proper wowed by it.

That said I now have this on my table...

I am not surprised is bandai making MG and PG Fumino in the future

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2020-10-16 17:26

^ Nah, they released Figurise Standard Fumina coz they already successfully experimented with the Standard Ayame & the Mobile Dolls. I'll be perfectly happy if Bandai can now release every Gundam girl as Figurise Standard. However, the Standard line is not really good for lewdy stuffs coz those articulation joints kinda ruin the sexy aspects of the character (just look at all those Megami Device kits).

Dynamic tag cannot be rendered. (PrintableThread) At 11:25 mark, Bandai gives you some parts to turn Ayame into a Super Saiyan :heh:.

If you want to own some sexy Gundam girls, might as well buy the GGG-line or Figurise Labo.

Maybe I can get Murrue Ramius as a Standard later on. We don't get many figures of her.

Drake 2020-10-17 13:47

I'm definitely down for that PGU RX78, I'm itching for something super complex. Hopefully it'll actually readily available when it releases.

Speaking of complex. This chap is coming along fairly quickly.

Finding the water decals fairly tricky, as seem to fall off at the lightest touch. I'll just have to be careful and give it a clear coat or something at the end. Wonder what I'll pickup after this is done, eyeing up either the Double ZZ ver.ka or the more recent S-Gundam but i hear the build of it is a bit old school (aka a nightmare).

Obelisk ze Tormentor 2020-10-18 06:34

^ Oh my, you did the kit justice right there. How do you feel about the trash-bag plastic that you have to wrap around the joints? I personally prefer either the molded plastic like in the HG or the rubber materials that Bandai gave us with MG Alex 1.0. My Alex 1.0 is still looking good rocking that rubber joints after more than a decade.

Also, I'm surprised to hear you said the water-slide decals can peel off easily. How can that be?

Oh yeah, here's a review of HGAW Daughtress:

man you should post more of those pics. Your build is just awesome!! I missed the like feature from animesuki (yes, we used to have them..It tells you how long I have been in here already XD)

If they continue to sell Gundam heroine, then lacus clyne will be soon? She was the most popular heroine from 00-10

Thanks for the kind words.

This was quite a challenging build, and my first ever ver.ka. The plastic joint covers definitely were not for the faint of heart, and I did rip a portion of the thinnest ones. Luckily they give you a bit extra than you need, and I got the hang of creasing them before moving on the bigger sections, which don't have any excess.

The water decals went on easy enough (along I did get some silvering which I wasn't able to really fix.) my main problem is not that they flaked or peel'd but rather that they came off if you accidentally touched them while posing and such. I've given everything a top coat but it doesn't seem to have made much of a difference. I will try the Mr.Hobby softener on any future builds as I hear it's pretty easy to apply and a little more of a permanent solution.

Still torn about what to build next...

Never took the time to properly weather a kit before, but it was fun to do with this kit, especially since it was so incredible cheap to buy. So I wasn't too worried about screwing up. The new build I'm waiting on will be a different ball game I think...

@Drake
That is some beautiful detailing job. The fact that you painted the tiny human figures is proof of dedication.

Anyway, what else is on your backlog? I've been wanting to build my RG Zeta (White Unicorn ver.) since years ago but its notorious reputation kinda scare me.

n0m@n 2020-11-07 03:32

......Damn. I couldnt even buy the Nu Gundam. Since Sazabi is a lot bigger, the price would be higher.
I will need to sell my kidney in order to buy it.

LoweGear 2020-11-12 06:18

The things I'm most excited about are the RG Hi-Nu Gundam and the HGAC Deathscythe. The RG Wing is nice, but I think I might go with the HGAC on that one for a complete set, and the 1/100 stuff don't appeal to me much.

Drake 2020-11-12 17:08

I've got 1 big boy kit on backlog currently, slowly working on the newer EX-S Gundam with the MG Fazz Ver.ka to do after.

Really lusting after the PGU RX78 but itll likely be sold out everywhere when it lands...

Man still cant get over how fun the MG Ball was...

justavisitor 2020-11-12 18:03

that hg nightingale looks insane

that rg hi nu seems having a problem standing...

I want Shenglong and I knew 1 year ago that when Sandrock came out, knowing my luck, Shenglong would be the last one....but that Deathscythe seems pretty neat!!

Dragger L...they should make Guaiz instead, the zaft grunt that never has its own hg produced, even when the show broadcasted

but overall this line up is amazing

i finally got the dial moving on painting/building my green Bawoo 1/144. and it only took an $500 purchase on amazon for a 1:10 GTR R33 RC kit. i built most of the model chassis minus the electronics and installing the tires. that $500 was due to the fact only the motor and chassis parts came in the kit. the other electric components had to be ordered and im waiting for the electronic speed controller to come in to move forward more. the painting will use PS/polycarbonate spray paints on the interior of the body shell.

i had to paint the brake disks primer+silver and decided that since the paint were being put to good use that i should go paint the areas on Bawoo. most of the painting is done aside from color matting the gloss paints. i might need to find some shoulder parts to paint but its only the touch up and assembly left.

i still have a 144 OVA deathscythe, Ayame+May Gundam girl and May's Wadom along side some more traditional plastic cement type car builds... i primed the parts for Bawoo 2 months ago??? and just didnt get back to it, im such a procrastinator.
