Awesome Custom Astrea! The colors really remind me of another Gundam. <--forgot the name all of a sudden >_<

Mister Mister 2009-04-11 14:31

on one hand, I applaud the effort and a dual-sword astraea is awesome.

on the other, red on black is the single most overdone color scheme ever.

Master Gundam?

The double GN Swords and colour scheme is really cool.

Trombe!

Amber.Dawn 2009-04-11 14:34

It looks cool though. You have to admit.

Well, I want more gold on white, like Lancealot (sp?). Moar gold on white!

Bingo! Master Gundam. And the twin swords of Spiegel.

Kelrys 2009-04-11 21:01

The color scheme is like Masurao :)

Hamachi 2009-04-11 21:03

Awesome Astrea! Makes me think about purchasing one.

Speaking of which, which would would be a better buy? Astrea or Astrea F?

Nerroth 2009-04-11 22:18

I was just about to ask a similar question, regarding the two Astraea kits available...


...and also, is there any word yet on if there will be a HG version of Astraea, too?

CandleStick 2009-04-11 22:26

There's a conversion kit for the 1/144 HG Exia to make it the Astraea so I don't think they'll release a separate kit for it.

In regards to the 1/100 Astraea kits, I think it really comes down to what color you want. I chose the white one over the red one because I didn't really like that red on Astraea. BUT the red Astraea does come with the black visor and optional parts to make it Type-F2. They are the same price so I think it really depends on what color you want unless you want the black visor which I think makes it look cooler.

Nerroth 2009-04-11 22:49

But does that kit cover just the original version, or the Type-F/F2?

And where can you get that kit, by the way?

LoweGear 2009-04-11 22:51

It's for the standard white Astraea.

Anything can happen though... some people were saying that a HG O Gundam would never be released because of the FG, then looked what happened :heh: Also, even if if there was a conversion kit, that doesn't stop a full kit from being released eventually (like the case with the HGUC Hazel)

Nerroth 2009-04-11 23:15

SOunds like the F/F2 might be the easiest one to release, and still make it distinct from the upgrade kit.


Also, in 'honour' of this, I decided to see what I can do:

Spoiler for The twin tails have to make do instead of the twin drives, but still...:

NOT Quite true. Generally, the 1/100 NG's offer better detail than 1/144's. I offer the example of the 1/100 Oveflag with its highly detailed engines, eyes, visor, wing and leg mechanics approaching MG level; the Tieren, with its grain-sanded armor mimicking that of a tanks, and the internal shoulder and GN Launcher detail on the Astraea. Even for the 00 S2 Gundams, they still offer better external detail than the 1/144 versions (the Shield Bits on the 1/100 Cherudim are filled in for instance, unlike the hollow 1/144 version).



Speaking of that, I've been wanting for a long time to buy the overflag (the black one that Graham uses) but I've seen several reviews of the 1/144 HG and they complain A LOT about the legs falling down and the fists being too big...taking notice of what you've just said, does anybody can give me an opinion about both versions? (1/144 HG and 1/100 NG

On an unrelated subject, I don't have an airbrush (can't afford it yet) but I'm eager to try some painting and top coating...so, do you guys recommend me the tamiya spray paints ? Are they worth it regarding how much can you use them before the can is empty ? What about top coat in spray format? I think I've seen it in some stores but with another name (living in a foreign country doesn't help you with this kind of stuff). I ask this 'cause I did buy some kind of top coat but I tried it on a shield with a brush and the results were not that good.

The Arche looks good, but I don't like the colors either

Mr SuperClear is a popular choice for Gundam modellers. Here's the flat topcoat from hjl, also known as a matt coat.

many thanks for the advice!!! so it is ok for me to apply decals first to my original layer of paint and then coat it over with a matt spray?

its best to do that so you can protect the decals as well as the paint and panel lines.

Those look like the Wing Zero Custom front skirts...

Okamidum 2009-04-12 01:24

Yeah, he took some parts off the zero and used it for the Raiser modification and skirt.
