Gunpla / Plamo General

***READ THE GUIDE***
For those new to gunpla/plamo or even just new to this thread; please read the guide. Please read it before asking questions as there is a chance it has already been answered there.
For those unfamiliar, "plamo" is a shortened form of "plastic model". If it's made of plastic, someone can probably help you here.
If you're new, you're gonna fuck up. Don't worry! If you're experienced, don't make the new people worry!
>Why won't anyone answer my question?
Try being specific, especially about your materials and process. Post pictures whenever possible; even if the kit/part looks bad, you are more likely to get help posting pictures.

Our next Group Build!
Basically what this means is that rather than the mobile suit being fresh out of a factory, it's quite the opposite. Whether it's trudging through dense jungles or dodging debris in asteroid belts, your mobile suit has seen some better days.
You've been out in the field for quite a long time now, nearly half a year of active duty in the front lines and your personal mobile suit's pretty banged up. What's worse is the fact that there isn't a maintenance bay within several thousand kilometers of your local area that's capable of making any major repairs. Your unit's engineering crew has resorted to patch work and jury-rigging to keep your machine operational. Stray fire might have crippled its legs and arms or otherwise dealt considerable damage to a mobile suit's systems meanwhile some units have simply lost bits of armor and panels to the elements and have been forced to patch weld metal sheets over the exposed inner workings.
In any case it's beaten to hell but somehow you and your team have somehow kept it chugging along and now command's ordered all units operating in your theatre to fall back to form a defensive line against the enemy offensive.

>Bottle of Future gets here soon
Anyone have experience airbrushing Future? Tips to pass along?
You should be okay to airbush it straight from the bottle at around 10-15psi like a normal acrylic. On military modeling forums people who had issues with spraying it unthinned just added a few drops of water or acrylic thinner.
anons help the guy at my m&p is trying to sell me an air brush even though i told him im thinking of moving and i have no place to put it without killing someone. i dont remember the brand except it starts with a p and it was 109. should i just take the deal or should i be firm and say no thanks?
Their adhesive qualities are different but super glue isn't more wear resistant than Future. Not sure why you would think it is in the first place, super glue isn't even designed to be wear resistant, whereas Future is. More importantly, what you want when tightening joints is a perfectly uniform and smooth surface, which Future is going to give because it self-levels really well.
work continues on the hyper delta gundam (working title). think I settled on a subdued version of the EX-S gundam for the paint scheme.
i called mine "Delta M", Delta M(odernized).
how did you end up mounting the wings to its back? it doesnt come with any parts for that out of the box.
backpack from the Maoh X gundam, arms from the GM cardigan, a lot of patience and a goddamn drill bro.
forgive the nubs, shes nowhere near finished. here's a detailed shot of the Hyper mega particle cannon on the fighter.
It's always exciting when a package arrives earlier than expected.
Anybody have any tips for building a kind of shit model? A friend bought this but it's just so...bad. A piece of the bottom broke open because the top & bottom wouldn't fit together at all (You could only get one side of it to stay together). I'm not good enough to do this myself. Any pointers?
Here we see the Blitz in a confrontation with it's natural predator
it was worse back when it still had a purple head.
i wanted this to be a prototype so im thinking EX-s but im open to suggestions.
I'm really looking to make a Grimoire Red shoulder custom (yeah, real original I know, but I just got back into gunpla after a year and I wanted to do it when the kit came out), what paints should I look for ?
Actually i'm gonna hand paint it because I have litteraly nothing. I was more looking for the color I should take because otherwise the guide has some advice for paints.
The guide is still viable right ?
I'll probably end up buying lot of different paints for this build and do runner paint test.
Anyway, really late but the Grimoire is a really simple and nice build, make me hype to get again into gunpla.
Here's the paint guide for the official Bandai Red Shoulder, I'd suggest using
to help match paints to whatever brand you choose
It's a shitty old thing I did for fun back then, the empty lineart is in the guide
Check mech9 for translated paint guides, unfortunately he only has the normal scopedog
Finished my first snap build since I moved. Still need to clean, trim, and paint him, but that'll happen once I finish setting up my hobby desk.
Not a bad way to end my six month hiatus.
>kit from the 80s
>no pictures of the completed model on the packaging
Yeah I ain't putting 25 bucks on that.
I fucking love the Zaku 1 design.
>Yonem Kirk protecting my books right now
Not jesta, but can give you a painting scheme idea
>Mechatro WeGo are holding up the cards
I built my first kit ever today.
It is a yms-15 gyan.. the hguc variant.
I had to use cheap nippers and nail clippers, which lead to... some nubbage.
For some reason 4chan won't let me upload any photos of it.
Hi /m/! First time poster here. So, I just got a Graze as a present, and after (mostly) being done with it, I was wondering, what do you guys think would look better? Having its propulsors on the back or on its hips?
Why would you do this to yourself?
>Which Jim is that?
1/100 Nouvel GM-III
>When did you get it?
NO JIM FOR YOU
The stickers were a pain and i already am thinking about removing half of them.
The stickers that go on flat surfaces are quite nice. However any stickerthat folds was a pain to get nice. The design on the shield is made up of 6 seperate stickers, all of which do not actually fit, so thats a huge pain as well.
For that chest sticker, why not just run an exacto knife down the center so as to reduce pulling on both sides?
Seems rather silly to me to even have it as one sticker if it's going across a gap. Everything else looks good though IMO. Wish they were more white though.
Thanks man, what's cool is there are family of bald eagles we protect there.
Where the gunpla
nigga he was finishing the job. the shit poster filled the thread to barely full and pieced out 17 images before the cap. he saw this and as a true bro put this sad thread out of it's misery
you know the only person bitching about it is the shitposter himself, he does it every fucking time.
Christ, why the fuck this board? What the fuck does he gain? I just want to discuss gunpla and see people's wips and cool builds, not this. What a waste of oxygen.
the story i heard before i left was it was someone from toy that thinks there can only be one gunpla gen so he dedicates his time ruining the lives of the un-pure until the they migrate to toy where they truly belong. i bet if /v/ had a vidya toy gen he'd be there too.
Who knows. But it has been confirmed as a candidate to get an RE/100, as well as the Leo, and Kshatriya, and some other stuff I didnt care about. (I was most excited about Efreet, which is 99% confirmed at this point.)
