Gunpla / Plamo General

***READ THE GUIDE***

https://docs.google.com/document/pub?id=1Tr8UyF2Xg5Ojqw0sxcO7oIG7IIsJPes3lMO5pHZKu5o

***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.

They actually profit just fine off of P-Bandai, typically more so than regular releases in short term profits. As they are selling it directly themselves, they are taking 100% of the profit without having to go through a distributor who buys them at a greatly reduced price from the MSRP. And because of preorders, they have a much better idea of how many to produce and don't end up wasting resources on a ton of kits that are going to shelfwarm. It's only in long term that they are overtaken by regular releases.

A HG GM Cardigan, and something much more interesting; a 1993-made CS-H926 Setter from Victory Gundam from some sort of "MS In Pocket" line. its meant for 5in action figures but 1/144 kits will fit on it just fine.

>>13772167
came across it at a local comic/nerd store ive never been to before, they had a huge selection of comics, legos, 6th generation console games, star wars, star trek, transformers, GI Joe and lots of obscure action figures from varies series. they had a pretty good Japanese selection as well, lots of old Macross kits and figures, DX Chogokin Evas for $60, a bunch of old gundam MSIA figures and a handful of gunpla, including the 1/400 White Base for only $150.
>>
>>13772192
supposedly they got a whole bunch of old Japanese stuff from a guy that was stationed over there and recently passed away, this thing is in absolutely pristine condition for 23 years old and has zero fading or cracking; i doubt its been opened more than a handful of times.

Stock up on supplies and some cheep High-Grades that you can use for demonstration. It's probably best you get some not-gundam things too so it can technically be a model club and not just gunpla.

You guys are stupid. Even if you're going to a tech school, no one knows what the fuck "gunpla" let alone "plamo" means. Or even what it is if you explain it to them. Toy modeling is a completely foreign concept to normalfags except the few who had grandpa's doing WW2 planes/tanks, in which case, they usually think it's cool. And many girls do find dedication to a hobby, especially one that uses your hands and tools, attractive. Obviously working on your motorcycle is cooler than working on an RC car, but it's still mechanical skill.

But if you're just modeling gundam and not any good mecha, you'll still probably come off as a tool who watches children's cartoons, mostly because you are one. And I hope you mean uni, not highschool, underageb&

The death of the 1/100NG line was the best thing that could have happened, unfortunately it was followed by AGE and like 6 MG main suits in short order that sold shit, so now we instead get re/100, 1/100NG and Hi-resolution, further diluting the scale. Reborn and MG can surely co-exist as they sort of compliments each other, but if they had killed the NGs before 00 we would probably have MG meister suits other than setsuna's

Depends on if you wanted it as the repair model or normal mode. iirc the repair RG addon doubles the price of the model and only adds like 2 small runners.
>>
>>13774005
It honestly just depends on the tolerances on the particular kit you wind up receiving. It just so happens that this particular model probably had a boat load of QC problems and got manufactured with a few fit issues. Worst comes to worst you'll just need to tighten the connections.
>>
>>13774005
It needs a stand as it can't stand well on its own, yes. Even if you can put up with it being wobbly over time the ankles will get weaker with rotation and use. Mine's currently dangle and can't hold their own weight.

Also, I have not heard of others having this problem, but the lower elbow joint on mine broke. Not really sure how, but its G10 in pic related.

It's a zeta. zeta's whole deal was it's waverider mode. It's very staple was that is was a transformable MS. That's what made the Zeta Gundam memorable.

Sure there are other non-transformable versions/variations of the Zeta but do those really leave that much of an impression as opposed to waverider Z? ZZ? S-Gundam? Plus A1? Plus C1?

Holy shit guys, they said it's their first build ever, calm the fuck down. For a first timer it's really not that bad, way to be elitist faggots instead of giving out constructive criticism. You on the rag or something Fllay? I haven't seen you be this much of a bitch in a long time, and here I thought you matured a little over all this time you've been here. Guess not

>>13777319
Not terrible for your first ever try with gunpla but it could use some more work. You're gonna want to get some sandpaper and go back and clean off those nubs that you got on there, remember to go from low grit to high grit. Also order some gundam markers or micro pens (whichever you prefer, either way they are super cheap) and try panel lining it; it's an extremely easy thing to do that really makes a kit look good. The three colors you should get at first are black, grey, and brown. Black is good for dark colored surfaces like blue parts, grey looks good on white parts, and brown looks good on red parts and few others. Since the Graze is green I think you would get away with with panel lining it with black or brown and it would come out nice. Welcome to the hobby

It needs nub clean up, use low to high grits of sand paper to clean it up. You can get a pack of 1000, 1500, 2000, and 2500 grit in the automobile section in walmart, and then pick up 600 and 800 grit. Cut and glue strips of the sandpaper onto popsicle sticks for greater control.

It can also do with panel lining, black gundam markers are cheap to get online I'd recommend the three pack of black, brown, and grey on amazon.

You are very new at this so I'd recommend you get a few more kits to learn on before you move onto something you really like, because you will fuck up. Maybe make a Graze squad before you move on and they can serve as paint learning fodder when you get into that.

Read the guide.

Hello again. So a while back, I mentioned on customizing a mg Unicorn and Banshee by doing a frame switch. However, someone mentioned making it regal. In that train of though, I had a few ideas, but somehow came to one train of thought, that being recreate the markings from Amaterasu from Okami.

Unfortunately, I'm a bit stumped at the moment on how to have the swirl markings on the forehead and shoulders. I may add in some yellow/orange LEDs for the frame and shield, but I want to get things worked out color wise first. Any advice on this?

pic related, as its one of my mock ups in photoshop.

Jesus christ it was directed at everyone in the thread, not just you ya twat. Don't go about complaining about post quality when you have your own head so far up your ass.
>>
>>13778058

For the shoulders I would probably just use masking tape, draw where I wanted them, cut it out and then re attach it and spray

For the head I would probably use tape to cover most of the head, then rolled sticky tack to mask the edges of the swirl. The head is a very complicated shape.

You could try liquid mask, but that is often a worse option than novices would believe. At first it sounds like a miracle answer to all of your masking woes but it usually is better to just put the time in with good taping.

Whatever information they're looking for can be easily found in guides if they are earnestly seeking to improve but if they're simply shitposting then we didn't have to waste a post.

Even so, I will use my own judgement to aid people and rise above the paranoia.

Yes in a perfect world people should read and digest the guide before asking questions and getting into the hobby, but this is an imperfect world so we must take it as we will and help one another to make the best of it.

Is there any reason I shouldn't use files like pic related instead of sandpaper or a hobby knife? These really seem more accurate.

I find that files are too rough for anything besides initial nub removal or shaping plastic.

I use a mix of all three. Like >>13778527
said, sometimes files are too rough, and sometimes they're not appropriate for the type of plastic you want to file down. It really depends on the situation

My biggest thing is shit in = shit out.

If it's a photo of an unlined kit standing in that awkward, rigid upright pose taken with a book backlit by their monitor, then there's no reason to reply because that person doesn't really care. They haven't taken a small amount of effort to upload a decent picture, much less read a guide that's mostly photos.

Freedom, never top coated it so I've gone back to it several times over the years. Removing horrible nubs and removing a lot of gundam marker to replace with Tamiya panel line accent color, also using setter and softer on the decals. I mean look at the fucking knife I was using!

Really hyped about 2.0, been advocating it in these threads since the RG. But I also kinda want to build the 1.0 again and to things right from the start, perhaps with a new paint scheme or something.
and no, it was my first kit and I had no idea of what I was in for or how I was going to build it, might have been a box cutter in dads tool box or something but I probably assumed it wasn't up to the task. Had no idea how to do the dry transfers and didn't take on the stickers.

>1/3 of the scoring process is paint

Since he didn't paint, he could only have a max score of 66/100

Essentially his snap build was so good it btfo all the painted customs. That's how well Kawaguchi loved it.

I intentionally bought it after they announced the 2.0 to compare the two, but also I think I might prefer the look of the older one more. Since I like how the old Strike looks compared to the RM. Both are pretty good for old MGs, but I prefer the old Strike
>>
>>13779073
My goodness that is one ugly Gundam.
>>
>>13779073
I've probably stated this to you before but after building the IWSP, Noir and RM I prefer the RM. I am also kinda worried as well as hyped for the 2.0 but we'll see the spring.
>>
>>13779096
I think they're all good, but the RM triggers me, especially with the dice on the shoulders. Some of the design changes just seem odd to me, but the Freedom 2.0 is showing promise
>>
>>13777810
I know there are issues such as having plenty of stickers, but do you have any other issues with the kit? I was thinking of picking up the blue one
>>
>>13779115
Yeah, I'm hoping for greater part-and color separation with a few of the RGs panel lines thrown in. Someone in this thread brought up that the wings seemed a bit sharper but I hope they don't change them too much since they are already basically perfect on the 1.0. But I also hope this will lead to a MG Justice

I got the chinese bootleg of MG 3.0 add-on pack. Build quality is actually better than Bandai's since most of parts are undergated and its "spongey"-like plastic doesnt leave any nub stress marks, on the down side it lacks some small details like the pin that connects the bazooka with gundams back
