It means you didn't do any modifications to your kit besides painting, seam filling, and part alteration to facilitate easier assembly

Thanks , I think I am going to try filling on my next model. I've seen it on some site, I can glue parts with super glue then sand paper out the edge make it smooth right?

I think this will be my MG buy list:

GP-02
Xbone Full cloth
Turn A

anything i need to becareful or know about these MGs?

"・プトレマイオスは新型戦艦発売のため爆発は決定事項"

Wait, that says Ptolemaios is confirmed to blowup?

I doubt it's that. It's too early for that kind of thing. We do see them changing one of the containers in ep 23 so it's probably to include that.

I have the Xbone Full cloth, and the proportions are great. I'm sure the TurnA is of the same quality. The GP-02 though, tends to slouch from it's sheer weight. Well, mine is about 5 years old. Looks great next to my GP-01fb though! 

My next kit would be this:

You're right let's keep to the topic. Other than that, you should watch your language son.

Does the Exia come with plated parts? Seems like the guy did a custom job...

I MUST HAVE IT!!!!!!!

Custom job. You can see parts of the shield that aren't painted all the way.

No, it doesn't come with any plated parts at all. The dude simply painted the yellow parts gold; if you look at the very first picture, it would seem that all four suits had their V-fins and certain yellow parts painted in gold. Anyway, I like how Kyrios attach itself to the GN-Arms, I never thought it would be like that. :heh:

Critias 2008-03-17 20:47

awwww :( but still, nice kit to get. The shot with all 4 of em together is class :D

MeesesGlokmah 2008-03-17 20:49

I like the GN-Arms, but I personally am not crazy about this Exia. The red parts seem out of place to me. I'm sticking with the original. If they want to make a Trans-Am version, it should be reddish-pink, sort of like the Strike Rouge.

philmein 2008-03-17 21:46

What was cooler was how he used Yuki Nagato in conjunction with the GN Arms. That was pure badass and creative in a way..I totally lmfao..hahahahahhaa

Anyways, I've decided NOT to get the GN Arms. I'm just going to go for the 1/100 Dynames for many good reasons.

Yeah, it does look a little cheap. For the Transam parts they should have gone with the clear translucent pink parts that they used for the Unicorn destroy mode.

Busterbeam 2008-03-17 23:20

yes that would have been cooler. i just saw the gn arms today at my local hobby shop. cant say i'm all that impressed. it does look cool. i think id be more inclined to buy it if i have the astraea conversion parts to put on the 1/144 exia. trans am astaea in gn arms e? that'd be something else.

Screw that, translucent parts would jack up the price

I highly doubt anyone buying something like the GN-Arms would be.... price concious. :P

silencer.001 2008-03-18 07:53

Man, I hated the screws in Strike Noir so much... But it's just me who got all clumsy and messy while attaching those parts to my kit,

The joint holding the wings and wing struts together (ABS rod in ABS socket) is loose. Use clear nail polish on the rod to widen it and tighten the joint.

merchant usually get product few days early in Japan, they get big trouble by selling product early, but you can always find greedy ones willl sell u for a expensive price.

Check out fichtenfoo's website. The site is all about modeling in general, with plenty of tutorials and tips suitable for beginners.

philmein 2008-03-18 15:21

Just a quick question.
Do you guys normally cut all the parts from the runners and then start building the model or do you guys cut and build as you go while reading the instruction manual step-by-step? Just wondering.

Sir Dearka 2008-03-18 15:25

I do it step by step. But still, I leave the assembled units as they are. Arms, legs, torso, head, packs. I don't attach them to each other until I don't put all the decals and don't do all the needed outline work.

I, too, follow the instructions step by step. I cut, sand, panel line(wash method), paint the part(s) if needed, and then build.

i follow instruction as well, but usually sand the neccessary part and out line the parts

just went to the hobby store, bought putty, primer, tape and couple bottles of paint.
suprisly they have few gunpla there, es-x, couple Hi Nu....
es-x was priced for 160 CND, but it has a 25% discount so about 120 CND, Hi Nu was 120 CND with 25% off...
I am thinking about geting a hi-nu and paint all the blue parts black, any suggestions?

This may or may not help some folks: http://www.gamerabaenre.com/toolsandtechs.htm
Some of the progress pages may be helpful too; as the same process is pretty much repeated for each build: http://www.gamerabaenre.com/in_progress.htm

Thanks for the tuts, gamera. I remember you and your awesome tutorials when I first started doing gunpla. You, fichtenfoo, tetsujin, and others were my hero. =)

beamknight87 2008-03-18 19:58

passed down by a store. They are having a spring sale so some models had from 15 to 25% off. Grabbed a Freedom for 40 CND. I'm not afraid to say this is my favorite Gundam (even more than the SF) despite its pilot being GOD and stuff. SEED was ok for me lol, its sequel... not.
Maybe SRW@3 also has to do something since the Freedom was also an awesome unit jojo

Aside that, I will try to use the spare hands of the SF FB on this model since many reviews out there actually complain about that detail of the Freedom, not being able to hold properly its weapons mmm


Now Bandai, where's my MG Justice or Infinite Justice?

panzerfan 2008-03-18 20:02

I just got myself a Master Grade Wing Gundam (Ka version)! The price after tax was 43 CDN. It's quite nice...

(I am already having fun with the parts that I got done in <2hrs. I think I might repaint them sometime in the future)

http://img150.imageshack.us/img150/1...gnanohano7.jpg

EDIT1: I actually would like some suggestions about painting the Gundam. I normally build scale model kits (such as that 1:350 torturefest Yamato ship), and I just rely on what Tamiya tells me goes best with to paint'em, which unfortunately wouldn't fly that well with Bandai recommendations. Does anyone have some tips regarding turning Bandai ref. colors to Tamiya ones and whether or not if I should even bother painting over the model? (I haven't apply any decal because of this concern)

beamknight87 2008-03-18 20:04

lol, awesome shot!!! ^^

ichobi 2008-03-18 22:42

Hey guys, I've just started Gunpla again after paused for some 8 years. Now I don't have any tools at all and when I did my first Gundam at that time I just pain black line and build OBB and that's it.

Now I want to get serious do all the painting layers, dry brush weathering and everything to make my Gundams look as nice as possible.

However I would want to have a comprehensive list of gunpla modeling tools. e.g. Paint Brush, compressor, model knife, cutter, nippers, paints, epoxy etc.

I just wanna buy them all at once and start doing it gradually. I do want to have all tools at disposal before I start building gundams as I study tutorials from internet.

Can anyone point me to any sites or list them out here? May be just the necessary main stuff that are essential, but detailed list always welcome.

I live in London and tools are really expensive. I was thinking of ordering buck of them from hobby site, at least they are much cheaper than from Hobby shop around here ( RARE AND EXPENSIVE )

Sciel 2008-03-19 04:20
