Hey /m/. I really like the Xeku Eins as a kit; you look at it and you can just tell what a bruiser of a machine it is. I was wondering, are there any good build weapon systems or similar products out there where I could find armaments similar to those in pic related? I find the machine gun that comes with the kit to be kind of awkward and limiting.

How do you get over creative/mental blocks?
I haven't been able to work on any gunpla, painting and modding. gave up on the shitty custom I was building as a result.

How do I get over it?
>>
>>11092689
Simple, by doing something else.

I'm a binger, I'll work on an MG all week and do that for a month or two at a time but then take a break and switch to something else. Devoting more free time to gaming, catching up on a backlog of movies, playing my bass, etc.

With any form of creative medium, it's good to work in strides. When you feel it, poor 110% in and as soon as the magic is gone, set your tools down and take a break to do something else for a bit. Let the creative juice recharge.

I'm almost ready to finally put the base colours on my modded LED Mirage. The main idea was to take the shit awful WAVE kit and bring it up to the standards set by the technical illustrations in the back of those Five Star Stories comics as far as mobility is concerned.
All that's left to do on the original kit is to sand some parts of the pauldrons and rescribe a few lines here and there.

After that I'm going to paint it in Sagiitta Weinberg's colours and complete the custom weapons the mod calls for.

think it might be matte and glossy gold. taking the right hand vulcans off and attaching it to bottom of left arm. then replacing left hand with the heat rod entirely. going to scribe some more lines for RG-esque-ness and maybe plaplate some more details. All I got for now.

Side note. Need some help with detailing the right leg. It only shows the left leg so I'm not sure if those 1 and 2 also go on the right leg or if they're mirrored on each side of both legs (like 4 on each leg like it shows) Will post pic after

>custom/kitbash idea

I'm too pleb for that unfortunately. I am one that lacks creativity, worse because I need creativity for my studies/day job of design. Because of that, Gunpla is the mindless activity to "off" my mind in comparison, opposite to>>11092708. However planned builds are the:

>HGUC Nu with ver.Ka aesthetics
>HGUC GP03 Stamen repainted (more of a Orchis purple colour because obvious reference)
>HGUC Acguy straight clean build with waterslides

I'm pretty fucking boring.
>>
>>11092769
Just got to the Gundam Wiki and hit that random button until you get two suits. That's your kitbash.
Bonus points for combination that requirers improvisation - be it either because it lacks gunpla or two or because you rolled combination of Zeong and Ball. Twin Ball.

>>11092769

A Ginn customed who's theme is modeled somewhat after the Wing Fenice (its backpack being modified & the wing binders set off to one side, being asymmetrical, etc). Right now I'm looking at using both Ginn High Maneuvers (the original and Type II from Destiny) along with parts from the Quanta Gundam (primarily the backsystem for holding the large sword & the main GN sword it uses in its right hand). I'll have to get one of the other Ginns for the leg rockets but that can wait. I might get something from one of the CGue kits instead, but I'm not sure yet.

Color scheme is gonna be the same as the Recon Ginn from the early episodes, black with bits of grey & yellow.

I warned you about the 3.0 a couple of threads ago bro. Dangerous choice for first MG. Even the RG isn't as complex.

Just take it slow and don't let frustration get the better of you an you'll be fine.
>>
>>11095719
Its results like this that truly show, just because its snap fit DOESN'T mean its a good first choice.

Especially since most gunpla molders come for the mecha, an actual model kit maker I assume laughs at the whole snap fitting process.
>>
>>11095719
3.0 was my first gunpla built and it went fine. But I had modelling experience before.
Still, I don't think it's really hard. You just follow instructions, cut parts carefully and take your time.

Well, looks like one of the kits a friend I wanted has arrived in my private warehouse, time to take advantage of the shipping...

Got me MS funnel, hg gelgoog (going for an msv cannon because screw the exclusive) builders weapon 07 (Tell me, they come with markings on them...no way I can preserve them, otherwise it sucks they're pre-molded) and...thinking a robot damshii death scythe or RD leos, or something else...

Anything else?

>>
>>11095887
They're actually probably going to be cheaper than your standard MG - the line's focus seems to be doing less common suits in 1/100 scale, but they won't have inner frames or anything, so probably not quite as robust and detailed as a MG.

How do you guys cut plastic plates/sheets?

For that matter what plastic do you get?

The last time I got plastic I think it was evergreen. X-acto knives wouldn't scratch the somewhat thick sheets.
>>
>>11096253
Generic brand styrene sheets. Stanley knife on thinner pieces, p-cutter on thicker sheets and then snap it after several passes.
Evergreen is overpriced.
>>
>>11096253
>How do you guys cut plastic plates/sheets?
Styrene should be cut with this thing.
>>
>>11096253

Scalpels and a ruler, how else? with sheet around a milimeter, you'll simply have to repeatedly scribe along the line you need cut.
>>
>>11096273
>>11096281

How exactly would you cut out more complex shapes?
>>
>>11096306
Straight cuts then shave and sand to shape.
Like if I wanted a circle I'd cut an octagon and smooth it out.
Takes some effort but I don't know a better way of cutting thicker styrene.
>>
>>11096327
That's lame. Would a handheld grinder/router be too rough?

It's really too bad 3D printers are still so expensive

>>
>>11096338
I have a dremel and it works with a couple drawbacks.
Mainly, it's a fucking mess. Plastic shavings flying everywhere. Secondly, it melts the plastic.
HSS cutter is better than a sanding drum but it still needs cleaning up by hand afterwards.

3D printing would give you even more cleanup again, the print striae are very visible even with thin layers.

You could use a plotter but it won't cut anything thicker than about half mil styrene.
>>
>>11096338
There's one for like $350.
Dunno if that's still expensive for you though.
>>
>>11096306
>How exactly would you cut out more complex shapes?

Scalpel, rulers, pencil lines on the pla plate.

Alternatively you can get yourself one of those circle cutters and do it step by step, but you'll hardly ever need circles that size.

And 3D printing is a fucking mess of hot plastic, support structure nubs, steps and miscalibrations.
>>
>>11096353
I still don't understand where the expense comes into 3D printing. It's 3 motors and a heating element, right? How the fuck does that cost hundreds of dollars, are there no chinks smart enough to make some knock-offs for less than 100 bucks?
>>
>>11096353
Can you post it?
>>
>>11096306

Worst case you'll cut them from cardboard stock and cover them in liquid superglue. That yields a material that can be glued to other PS-parts with poly cement.
>>
>>11096370
The print head and parts that have the tolerances to not print like a downy with parkinsons.

Prices are dropping heavily though, and building your own does save you a fair amount.
>>
>>11096370
Software mainly. The processing of 3D printing isn't done by the computer usually, it's often done by the printer itself. So it had to process that 3D model you give it and turn it into something it can work with on the fly.

>>11096373

I think I'd rather just buy the kits.
I can't realistically imagine that consumer 3d printers will be precise and affordable enough within the next 10 years to be as good as injection molds.
I'd personally hate having to sand down the entire piece after each printing.
Plus plastic itself isn't exactly cheap either.

Finally finished test-fitting the IMS Vatshu (sans a few of those tiny red dots on the chest and armpits). Some final impressions:

-Kit comes with two long swords and one short sword, but there's only one scabbard-like mount for a single sword on the shield (not pictured). Don't know why there isn't at least 2.
-The shield is hella heavy and the way it's pretty much connected via only the hand. The wrist connection is very weak and done only through a small polycap. Unless you tighten or glue the joint, the hand will pop out of the wrists 24/7 with the shield on.
-The "frame" that you are supposed to mount the large armor plates onto are essentially long polycap pieces. It makes no sense why Volks did this since the connection is rather loose and the stiffness of the polycaps prevents the skirts from even moving at all in the first place. Normal plastic pieces would have worked much better, though I think the newer 1/144 has them in plastic?
-Balance becomes much worse once all the armor is on, the kit becomes both front and back-heavy, which balances it out, but if you so much as lean it forward or backward a wee bit, it'll take a dive. Ankles aren't too strong either, but it's a simple fix.

Don't know when I'll get to painting and completely gluing all the loose bits together (as well as welding some leftover seam lines with putty), but as it is now, it's pretty decent-looking for an unpainted kit, but most definitely not Bandai-level. Just like something from Kotobukiya.

Overall, if you've built a Kotobukiya kit or non-Bandai model before, you'll have a decent idea of how to deal with many of the problems on this kit. As you build, you'll have to properly align and glue down some parts, fix up seam lines, even the rough surface with sanding, mask some parts while painting, etc. Still not nearly as difficult as the Wave plamo or various resins though. If you want a decently easy FSS kit, these are the best option, though not necessarily the best kits.
>>

Maybe not entire kits, but building add-on pieces like guns and shields, maybe attachable armor or things like shoulder armor.

>>11096435
Can you imagine trying to clean up print layers on detail the size a 3d printer could afford you?

I don't see home 3d printing of kits / selling 3d printed kits becoming viable. 3d printing a master and cleaning it for resin casting perhaps.
>>
>>11096455
The examples on youtube seem pretty impressive. From the videos the printed parts look pretty much look like commercial quality. But these are from like $1000-$3000 printers.
>>
So due to circumstances, I'm having to move to a much smaller place where I doubt I'll be able to tastefully display much of my collection. I'm also going to have to make the decision to throw out most of my boxes just because there isn't any room to store them.

Makes you wonder how Japs handle it.
>>
>>11096455
Actually, I can.
I've got a 3D Printed Reliant from Star Trek my brother made a few years back, and it looks VERY good. Granted it's rough and not smooth, but that can be easily fixed.

Hell the kits they use for display/announcement most of the time are 3D Printed and they're similar quality to that of my brother's ship.
Granted, the ship was printed on a $2k 3D printer that took up a 5x5 square and was about 7ft tall. However, it's also severely out dated by years.
>>
>>11096465

Flatten the boxes. Knife the vertical lines and you can retain the box net and stack them one on top of another. Throw out the bottom print less boxes, of course. Find some folder/porfolio, store them with your instruction booklets if you're keeping them too.
>>
>>11096461
Videos lack the detail of the human eye.
Drag a bit of 180 grit sand paper across a smooth piece of your kit and try and paint over it.
You'll still see it.

My uni has an expensive 3d printer but it's still not smooth.

>>11096469
How small is the detail on that?
How do you intend to smooth out pipes a quarter of a millimetre across stuck next to eachother?
>>
>>11096474
I was thinking of doing this; plus saving the boxes that I'm using to transport the models in.

Also holy fuck, my backlog is so big. I've got to lay off the plastic crack for a while until I've made a sizeable dent in this.
>>
>>11096482
But Anon, the human eye can't see higher than 720p!
>>
>>11096410
Don't have one, but I've used a 3D laser scanner and a printer for work. The scanner portion is fine enough, if a little finicky to use on light colored or reflective surfaces.

The printing aspect of the process is still behind, with most commercial models producing very crude replicas. More advanced models, however, can produce a much smoother surface at greatly increased cost in terms of materials, time, and power.

In other words, the technology just isn't practical for gunpla yet.
>>
>>11096482
The detail on it isn't that small.
As far as the pipes, you'd have to either make them larger and smooth them down, or you'd have to find a different method.

Like I said, I see it being on the quality of a resin kit at best. But who knows, time will tell.
Plus I see it being more like >>11096444 suggested with armor and weapons rather than whole kits.
>>
>>11096494
I still don't think it would be viable even for extra parts.
Unless you're making literally 1 of them why would you spend hours printing part after part instead of printing one then recasting it in batch moulds?
>>
>>11096482
>Videos lack the detail of the human eye.
>Drag a bit of 180 grit sand paper across a smooth piece of your kit and try and paint over it.
>You'll still see it.
>My uni has an expensive 3d printer but it's still not smooth.

I don't even see your point. 180 is coarse grit. It's not used for smoothing anything. If I wanted to smooth or polish something over I'd use a finer grit.
>>
>>11096503
The point is you'd have to smooth out an entire kit like that if it were 3d printed and it would be incredibly difficult on fine detail without destroying that fine detail.
>>
>>11096503
180 grit sandpaper being an example of the resolution 3d printers wish they had if that wasn't clear.
>>
Didn't know Gundamplanet was doing the mid year campaign, guess I'll be ordering from them for a while.
>>
>>11096502
Because it doesn't take HOURS with consumer printers? It takes like, an two hours usually. Esepecially if you're printing something for 1/144 scale.

I mean even if you do, let it go over night. Most people don't need like 50 of one part or if they do they can do exactly like you suggested.
>>
>>11096505
>not doing a rub down in the entire kit prior to priming

1200 to 2000 is going to smooth surfaces out just fine without destroying detail, unless you're roid raging while sanding

Thinking of making an rg zaku a custom, for ease of use black tri stars or johnny ridden.

I was suggested previously to use the ms blade builders parts for johnny ridden's zaku 2's commander fin on an rg char's zaku, but from pictures I've seen they don't look the same as the one included as the grunt zaku.

If it weren't for the backpack I'd of gone for that.

The other option is black tri stars, problem is being a spray painter how the hell do I match those colors, the main isn't just black?

I'd of done a Shin matsunaga rg zaku, but same problem as Ridden's zaku, no proper commander fin...

>Why use 3d printing at all if you're printing huge chunks of flat nothing?
Because you can print things like shields, armor, and specific shapes easily. Then detail them. If I can have the precision of something being uniformly shaped by a computer, I'll easily take it over having to shape it by hand.

Because it's a lot easier and probably lighter just to print it, as opposed to stacking sheets or bulking with epoxy and then carving it into the proper shape and curvature. Not to mention, you can easily reproduce more parts since you'd have the 3D model saved for reuse and you can also flip them (again because 3D models)

samuel decal makes them.
>>
>>11096780

PS and a laser printer. Print shops should have those and you can buy decal paper online.
>>
>>11096780
Easy way-Find some patterns etc you like, size to fit onto a hg or whatever then send to someone who can make them, like samuel decal.

Hard method-Same again but this time you need an ink jet printer (there is another type that can do this but I forgot) and water slide paper+decal bonder

Once printed you gotta spray the bonder which is just as toxic as spray can paints so be careful.

Also there are 2 types of paper, white and clear, clear has color bleed issues but works best for certain colors, white makes things more solid and prevents color bleed...problem is you need to cut precisely.

I thought about doing this all myself but then I found samuel decal.

Last time I checked without spending a bit "extra" and get one that isn't consumer level, the printer won't be printing white. CMYK, and all that. Which is relatively important as a lot of decals tend to be white.

1) recreating parts would be more work on your part if you already have a 3d model that's ready to print
2) No, you really couldn't mirror anything that like that. Anything that's asymmetrical can't be mirrored, you would have to create it completely from scratch. And something that is symmetrical, well you wouldn't mirror that, you'd just be reproducing it.

Not being cheeky here, but what are you going to do with white decal paper? Scratch it with a knife until you get clear backing and create the graphic? Or am I (possibly) missing a function that consumers printers are capable off? I feel like we had this discussion a while back regarding Oroeri wanting to print his own.

Regardless, printing one's own waterslides is definitely a thing. Just need the right paper, laser printer, then the right spray. However it is just the printing of "white" that I am concerned about. Any other colour made up of CMYK would be fine.

Laser printers more or less melt plastic particles into the paper while inkjets usually are water soluble.

So I really would not try them on something that has to go into water and then be melted by aggressive chemicals.

Again, I am ready to be educated. But the two examples he used there does not contain white graphics. Pic related is what I am talking about, and why I deem it hard for a consumer-level printer to achieve.

Clarifying again: I am not talking about the colour of the backing paper; I am talking about printing white ink on a medium. In my previous post I said printing your own is definitely possible, as long as the graphic is within the CMYK spec, show even in your video (yellow, and black)

inb4 I'm being retarded and derping. It does happen.

>Since white can never come from the printer I had to use White Decal Paper for the white to appear. At the same time however I had to 'mask' the rest around the white of the decals with a color that was equal to the 'middle blue' of the model. You'll see later that whatever the color , you can match it with the software so never mind that I have used a non-standard mixture to achieve this middle US navy middle blue.

I don't get what you're trying to show me. It still isn't white on clear as done by Bandai/third-party decal printers, like in my last pic related.

I feel like we're on a bit of miscommunication here.

You know what, I'm out. I'm probably derping, and not being helpful either. I am not against anything, and printing decal is certainly possible. I was just pointing some things out.

does anyone have any reference pics for what each coat should look like when I use spray cans?

Like, pictures after applying the first layer or primer? I was told to do multiple coats, but I don't know if it's supposed to look splotchy and uneven when I first coat it or if I'm supposed to completely coat it all in one go?

Like, I sprayed a chest piece but I just kept spraying it until it was all grey with the primer. Is that a good or bad thing? I read the guide but wasn't sure.

The gloss helps the waterslides stick, but yeah, at this step, you might as well just coat the whole kit in gloss. It's not like these gundams are all that large anyway.

sorry I misunderstood

I just had a look and Laser printers can print white
but the printers cost more than £2,000 and the cartridges cost about £500

so for the odd gunpla its not worth it unless you set up a business selling custom decals for about £5 pounds a sheet

No I mean, gloss is a clear coat too

This is so the edges have a worn look. You don't have to do it. Often the primer is enough for the base color. Light/white primer for light tone, grey for neutral, and dark grey for dark tone

Korean Army fag here
Went to gundam base again and picked up a pinvise, gundam markers and the Z'gok E from 0080.

I was also checking out the ReZel from unicorn and the Kampfer amazing and was thinking it would be cool and take the ReZels back mounted beam cannons and put it on the Kampfer amazing, only problem is I already have a Kampfer Amazing back at home as well as an old MG Kampfer and I don't feel like buying another Kampfer. So I was thinking I might just get the ReZel. I'm not normally one for Feddie suits but Unicorn did feddie suits really well. But the HG goes for 33,000 Won, didn't even bother to check the MG, though I don't really want a MG version of it, I don't like it that much. Should I just get the HG Rezel? Or should I get Noblesse Oblige from armored core or start getting some zoids? Might start with Liger Zero Panzer, then Schneider, gun sniper lena custom or mirage/shadow fox

tl;dr
Should I buy H Rezel, Noblesse Oblige or zoids?

That's what I meant at first dear anon, when I mentioned "consumer level". It's "physically" possible, but definitely not viable for the everyday builder. The same goes for RGB-based printers: They exist, but costs an arm and leg with the cost outweighing the benefits.

So what are some crazy ideas you've had /m/
I put this together a long time ago cause I wanted to modify my Kampfer and so I threw everything I thought about adding on to here, but never got around to it.

I was thinking though the chainsaw or big ass cannon from AC4A and ACV might go on my Virtue and the VoB from AC4A could fit on my kampfer if I pin it
>>11097490
I do like White Glint, but I got this thing about having the same models as people I know and my friend has White Glint with the VoB. So I was thinking Noblesse Oblige would be good, besides, that was the first AC in the series I was like "Damn that things really awesome" then I saw White Glint. More then anything though I want a MerryGate AC

This is just my 2 cents, many hg's and mg's with only 3 rg's built, these are the issues I've encountered.

I say kids but some girls would like for the cute side...not all though.

I'm not risking a banshee screaming their opinions at me.

The designs don't catch me at all, something about previous UC designs caught, the fact this show is in the same universe as UC is an oddity for me.

Maybe a good plot will save the show but model kit wise nothing works for me, yet

I know how you feel, I want to like it, but as of right now, I'm not expecting it to be anything special. I hope I am pleasantly surprised

Last one for me, the others are rather blurry or not that good looking after a 2nd look. I was in a hurry today since I was learning the subway system. I'mma go again tomorrow and actually buy something tomorrow. I think I might go ham and buy more then I reasonably should

2 hours in the car to get these two guys
I think I'm in love with the Turn A

So I was thinking about getting the HG ReZel C (The white and orange one with 2 beam cannons on it's back) cause it is a pretty nice looking kit, but I was also thinking I might be able to take one of it's beam cannons and add it to the kampfer amazing, but I'm not sure about size difference. Also the ReZel is 33,000 won, so I'm looking at roughly $33 for a HG kit. So I thought I might wait on that one
