***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!

Field Repair

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.

Deadline: March 7

How the hell do I get good at nubs? I've built four and a half kits and I still feel like garbage at it. I shave cut most with nippers, then shave with hobby knife, and then attempt to sand with sand paper. But I can never seem to get it flat without risking eating away at the rest of the plastic

I really want to paint but I don't want to paint unless I can get rid of nubs decently enough
>>
>>13727253
My gf who made the bearguy uses this nail file that has four different grades on it for nubs, I tried it myself with some paint smudges and it even works well on that point as well
>>
>>13727253
Use sanding sticks or make your own by glueing sanding paper to a popsicle stick. It should give you better control on what surface you want sanded. Oh and play around with the angle at which you sand too.

I recommend a sanding stick, smaller area of effect and its on a more controlled flat surface, save the sandpaper for rounded parts
>>
>>13727225
you're the one ruining the threads you worthless shitposter
>>
>>13727253
Don't bother with knives unless you're speed building it for a snapbuild. Proper method is to nip close enough to leave a small nub, file to remove as much of the nub as possible, then sand (high grit) flat, then polish. And then you paint it.
>>
>>13727225
How about you go to the "hug-box" with your shitty fucking builds.

i'm still not 100% committed, what are some cheap placeholder tools I can use to get the first job done and see how I like it
>>
>>13727309
an exacto is like $5 tops, just make sure you get a type 17 blade, you can buy 1000 grit sandpaper at any store with an automotives section for around $3, and nail clippers make a half decent stand in for nippers since those tend to be a tad expensive

which has lower adhesion on a polished surface just the same.

I just use Tamiya basic files and 800 and 1200 grit sandpapers. I don't know what grit the files are but they can remove a lot of plastic, so I slowly go over the nub until it's just about gun and then use sandpaper. I don't polish anymore but there are a variety of polishing papers and blocks with grits up to 12,000 that can give you a finer finish than 1200 grit sandpaper.

You are just as destructive to this thread as the image spammer/s. As much as I hate the spam, I hate you more and wish you would just leave. I don't wish you to kill yourself or get murdered or whatever else everyone else has said, I just want you to leave. You don't contribute anything positive to these threads and the fact that you plummet these threads quality every time you make a post, the same exact thing could be said about you; that you're from /toy/ and etc. etc.

If you're really not some attention starved loser with nothing better to do please prove it by leaving.

It will sort of works, and the dried paint will stick on whatever you sand the piece with. But what's the point? Just wet a q-tip or a piece of cloth with the paint's thinner and wipe.
>>
>>13727998
According to what this guy is saying in his post the paint has dried and then he lightly sands it off using the microfine sanding sponge
>>
>>13728002
That seems like a lot more work but for a no better result. In fact more easy to fuck up cause you sanded too hard and now you've got to go throw a whole buffing process

The risk of scratching the base paint is real high, more so if you paint with acrylics. You're better off using lighter fluid and q tips to clean it up.

Looks bretty gud from the pic quality! Howd you enjoy it? Is it lined?

>>13727998
That's a sanding sponge. They're basically sanding the surface to remove the spillover and only leave the paint in the groove. I am assuming that the white is bare plastic for that to work.

It's called a wash. Super easy and effective, just don't be overzealous with the thinner if it's enamel, it'll brittle up the piece.

When I posted pics of the 1/100 resin giant axe a few days ago, a couple of people asked if they were too big.

Had someone measure the HG giant axe from the origin tristar zaku. It measures 175mm from tip to tip

175mm at 144 scale = 252mm at 100 scale

The resin one measures 255mm without the clear blade part fitted, So I'm calling that close enough.

speaking of sandpaper, I was curious which brand everyone prefers?

I've been running with 3M wet or dry series and they're pretty good, although I've yet to try them out with wet sanding. I also should really make some sticks out of them sometime.

The finest grit there is apparently around 800. Isn't that a bit low for Gunpla? I start at 1000 and work up to 2000/2500.

Well I didn't have to trim a single piece of flash, but that may vary for each kit, some parts were a pretty tight fit, and since the plastic is a bit softer than Bandai's you have to be careful, I ended up getting a bad stress mark over the left wrist that i was able to cover with a decal. This also means that nubs are easier to clean but also easier to leave pits if you aren't careful

I built DM's Tallgeese 3 a while back and was less than impressed, ended up using the parts along with a second, Bandai Tallgeese to make a custom.

The Destiny though is in a class all of its own, completely blew my expectations away. I don't knew if the inner frame is based on an existing DM kit, like the Strike, I never built that. But its nothing to write home about. The surface detail though is superb, like almost RG level color seperation.

LOTS of runners. Like a shit ton. Like more than some PGs (Though not as big)

All in all it was a lot of fun and downright fabulous.,

I am that anon, and it is amazing how far the engineering has come.

The inner frame part that connects the arms, head and core fighter together is one big part and a small bit for the back of the neck.

The rough equivalent of that, judging from the Origin guide is 11 pieces with one large chest piece and 10 smaller bits with far greater articulation.

the files you're using to sand are too big (or you're sanding too broadly), that's why the parts where the nubs were look butchered

Lined and pretty fun to build (wings were very intricate), but I had an issue with the left leg. After constructing it I applied some paint to the skeleton to give it more metallic color, once it dried it made it incredible brittle and resulted in the joints crubling, its basically being held together by the outer shell

>>13729936
those should be narrow enough, just try to be more precise and don't over-sand. try to sand only where the nub is elevated, this is all after u get as much as u can off with your fingernail after cutting midway down the sprue

Didn't have all the supplies necessary when I made this (see: sandpaper) but I just wanted to snap fit it together since it was my first one. Gundam markers just came in so I finished all the panel lining and applied the decals. I'm horrible as fuck but I hope to improve from here.

Any suggestions on what to practice with? I guess I could get cheap kits like Hi-mocks or something but even if they're so cheap I'd feel really bad butchering them just to learn.

It's a reprint of a much older kit. They didn't even really have pegs on the hand back then.

The real question is why Bandai decided to re-release the thing at all.

The answer is that they hadn't really thought of web exclusives yet.

I'm guessing the enamel paint just seeped through the joints, degrading the inner frame.

So is it normal for shipping/grand total to be calculated after placing the order on Amiami?

How the hell am I supposed to know how much this is actually gonna cost me? I'd like to compare costs before actually ordering anything.

You can just not pay for it after you get emailed the estimate

Yes I had the MG Zeta Plus in Amuro's Test Type colors. The thing barely held together in robot mode. Thats the downside of a kit trying to have a detailed exterior, internal frame, and still try to transform.

While I always preferred MGs over HGUCs, the Zetas are an exception. The parts-forming to wave rider mode makes the kits much more solid.

Granted I heard the MG Zeta 2.0 was much better than the original, but alas I never owned it.

I fucking hate this pack of false metal feathers. They just make it look like a toy whenever they're used.

What the hell? I've owned it too along with the C1.

The MG Zeta Plus is EXTREMELY stable and almost too stiff because of the screws that hold the thing together. How is it that you had the complete opposite experience ?

Bought a Tamiya weathering kit as I wanted to practice weathering and whatnot with Pic Related. Prior to weathering I'm sure i gotta fix up some other stuff here and coat it first though.

Be aware that the darker colors like soot build up very quickly.

Considering getting one when I can. I have the Sword Strike backlogged.

>>13736729

Thanks. I'll definitely look out for that and actually try not to overdo it.

Just to make sure, the coat I need to use should be what, gloss or flat?

>>13736738
