Well, Hi Nu Gundam has a conversion kit for the MG Nu Gundam. Victory remains deprived of anything resembling MG greatness.

Although it's true, we need a true MG Hi Nu Gundam and Nightengale. MG Hazels would be cool too. :)

C'mon, Bandai! Get over your CE cash-cowing and give us our classics!

Tak 2006-10-08 01:02

Hmm, I don't know about the Hi-Nu, I am sure you know, its not really a Mobile Suit from any Gundam franchise...

Oh, and don't completely look down on the HG Strike/Freedom, there are a lot of parts you can salvage to complement your MG kits ;)

Not to mention 'convert an MG Freedom into anything else' thing. Someone here bought 3 MG Freedoms for only that.

- There's a REASON why there's this little place where the trigger grip is supposed to connect to the hand, you know. :eyebrow: I have the Gundam MK-ii Ver 2.0 MG, and it's quite decent when holding weaponry. The F91/Crossbone hands have the same type of connector. Maybe you're just having the hand alone hold the weapon, and not actually attaching it to the connector?

-That's true. Hobby Japan cannibalized parts from an MG Freedom to make an MG-quality Galbaldy Beta from Zeta Gundam (Movie version). I should scan that eventually.

With one of them, I plan to use a different color scheme, because you know how I hate default HERO GUNDAM COLORS. The second one, I am going to be as original as I can with it. As of yet, I have no basis planned for the second kit.

The third one merely functions as a backup in case the second one fails :p

I use the HG 1/100 kits as practice before I construct their immediate MG counterparts, if you know what I mean.

- Tak (But most importantly, I need time, it takes nearly a week to get anything done *grumble*)

No on the bean zamber there is no peg for where the hand peg is suposed to attach. im kindda pissed myself i had to heat up the end of a jewlers screwdriver and made one for it.

Tak 2006-10-08 11:10

Hey SoranGTR, ya gonna paint that? Its an utter waste if you get a PG kit, and not do anything to enhance its quality. ;)

I'm trying to perfect my painting techniques first on my HG kits first, before i try them on my pride and joy...:heh: :heh: :heh:

No airbrush means any painting i do will be with hand brushes, not to mention i have no idea how to use a air-brush, although i have quite abit of hand-painting experience from painting Battletech metal minis...

My painting attempts on my HG 1/144 kits

Tak 2006-10-08 12:54

^ Those aren't bad. I like the Prov. especially. Keep it up.

Seriously, you can take the worst piece of crap model, but with a good paint job, you can make it look just as professional. Its all about the paint man, the paint... (and polish)

They look good, even though it looks like you painted only minor details. I like Strike Noir's head. Did you have fun painting all of Legend's DRAGOON's beam guns? :p I had so much troubles with the 1:100 version, I can't imagine what it's like with the 1:144 one. What did you use to make the pannel lines?

SoranGTR 2006-10-08 14:15

Well, i'm not very fussy as a modeller. If the plastic's color looks close to how the Gundam looks in the anime, i leave it alone. However, HG 1/144 kits have this tendency to come with a lot of parts in one solid color (like Legend's beam rifle for instance), which to me screams "start painting". My mininum standard is for them to look like how they do in the anime.

Legend's DRAGOON's beam guns were a pain to do, especially since there are 8 small ones and 2 big ones. The small black and red sections on them were done with my smallest brush, which took quite a while. Panel-lining, i use a Sakura Micron 0.25mm pen.

Syn13 2006-10-08 16:44

Building the X1 right now, maybe I haven't build a MG in a while but the pieces seem smaller and harder so now my fingers are in pain! Spent some couple of hours on it and only built the body, right arm and head. The skull heart piece for the chest doesn't snap in so I had to use some cement glue for it...

Hmmm, the replaced plastice for the polycap kinda scare me because I'm afraid for I adjust it alot, the plastic will grind...Hows everyone's MG F91's joints, are they holding up good after alot of movement?

Like the MG Freedom ---> Strike Freedom from G-CUSTOM? That one looks kind of cool.

Tak 2006-10-08 20:08

G-Custom is a very great site for modeling references. If I can ever be as good as him, which requires not only skill but a lot of freetime (& money, that always helps), then I will be satisified. In the mean time... I've got a mountain worth of kits to do :p
