Those of you just joining us, please read this 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.

So the Materia FAG is released this month, but does anyone know the specific day?
>>
>>5385796
Pretty sure she release in Feb, Feb 9th I think?
>>
>>5385796
On the subject I can't decide between getting white or black. I like how black looks more but she already looks close to architect who I'm also getting. Any opinions?
>>
>>5385807
That's the white version. The "Normal" version is listed as January most places I've looked.
>>
>>5385832
Ahhh, so you're right. Sorry, I thought they were releasing at the same time, my mistake.
>>
>>5385834
It actually makes sense that they're putting a few weeks between releases. That way they compete with each other less on release.

So I just got this in. I've got the R2/R5 kit coming in a week or so, and Phasma coming hopefully at the end of next month.

First time with a model kit since I was like 8. I did get some nice Xuron cutters, but do y'all have any tips for not fucking it up? I'm thinking that I'll start with the R5 set since I'm not all that hot for a perfect Skippy the Jedi Droid.
Also, I can't figure out if these need any glue.
>>
>>5385979
Don't need glue, they snap-fit.
>>
>>5386010
This.
Glue is only for extra securing, and seam welding, both of which are very optional, and even situational.
>>
>>5386026

Wait. There are people who seam weld with glue?
>>
>>5386063
By glue, I mean Plastic Cement. My bad. There is a difference.
>>
>>5386063
What I heard is the last resort of people who can't get cement or putty is a super glue and baking powder mix.
>>
>>5386200
It works, very fucking well. Usually used to for bigger seams on stuff like resin.

Warning: If you do this don't let the shit touch your skin. However it works it does so using heat and the shit gets really hot, really fast. Unless you enjoy chemical burns.

Grabbed this from TOM because I had a coupon for 10 bucks and the pilot looks hot. It's a lot cooler than I expected and I recommend buying it. The amount of plastic for $13 is impressive and makes me wonder why the main HGUC line is so expensive compared to these IBO kits. It was a snap build with nothing but nippers and knife and I wish I hadn't done that. The kit had some big ass, tough nubs, like on the backpack and some leg armor that I ended up trying to whittle with the knife only to gouge plastic.

On a related note, does anyone actually use the stickers? They always fall off for me so I stopped using them. Maybe they'd be better if they were sealed with a topcoat.

And on a side note, the Xuron 2175ET nips well but the finish isn't much better than the various cheap wire cutters I've tried. It only comes out better once in a blue moon on small gates if you're lucky.
>>
>>5386764
>gouge plastic
Use a file and sandpaper to get a flush finish

>Xuron 2175ET
Nippers don't really make your gunpla better. Those are a nice pair to use though
>>
>>5386764
Iirc most of the women pilots in ibo are harem whores. As for the stickers i only use the eye stickers and the rest as masking for paint jobs. And nippers i have generic brand and use my knife+sand paper afterwards

Im not opposed, though Id have to look into cost of international shipping and etc. I find all kinds of P-Bandai in Akihabara though, that im not sure you can even get in the states and it would be cool to help people trying to get desired kits.
>>
>>5386994
You're right on all fronts but the most glaring issue is that you just winged it, man. Beside the edges, nothing about it looks natural, whether as damage or dirt. It looks just like what it is, randomized pats from a dry or slightly damp brush with black paint on it. See if you can't get some of that shit off, 'cause the model itself seems to have been put together quite well. Check out some official (or /good/ fan) art from the series, as well as nicely rendered kits online for reference. Study actual worn metal, see how it degrades. The edges are better off looking silver than black, because the paint or top layer is scraping off revealing the "un-touched" material beneath it. & there's rust-like effects to consider as well, areas where you would find giant bolts, attached spikes, joints, etc, the black runs down them, (I dunno the science of it, maybe it's caused by water) as opposed to just being scratched on sporadically. & yes, of course, less is more. Additionally, you can fuck the thing up a little bit, make bullet holes with heated pins, warm the plastic & dig into it a little with a blunt tool, etc, & dry brush those with black, & wipe away it away quickly so it gives the appearance of burns or ash-like residue. Don't be shy with the Zaku, they're grunts who get busted up, after all.

The 2175ET are workhorse nippers I find. Not the sharpest cut around but the things never dull it seems. I've had the same pair for about 4 years and used it for resin nubs, thick pla plate, parts cutting, etc and they still cut as well as I remember then.

Well, nope. On the other side I can possibly be a sadistical person, who likes his model to suffer. Or maybe it's some stupid way to attention-whoring. Or even just like Michelangelo said - "Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.".

Another question is if I should use silver for the tubing around the waist(that I'm avoiding). I'm thinking a darker grey for the weapons but I never know what to do with the weapons. Thoughts?

>>5391301
Yeah ROMs are pretty small, actually. I have an old flash cart for the DS before the exploit for the 3DS was found. It runs on the 3DS but I haven't been able to run any patch updates since I got it at launch.
I personally have been working on homebrew to run on the 3DS and used the SD card to get those stereographic hentai images uploaded. I forget the program I was using but I was combining them and making them work with the 3D slider on the device. I was pretty proud of it.

>>
>>5391320
Probably just user error/lack of ability to read. Mine was the first series so there were no exploit patches yet.
The exploits for running the 3DS roms seemed a little hairy to me but I'm content with my DS roms. Only reason I'd try to get 3DS roms running is so I can take advantage of the 3D slider, and have full access to the ARM processors' registers + full resolution screen rather than that weird ass cropping that happens when running DS games.

Hacking the 3DS is a lot more complicated.
I can send you the guide I used if you're curious.

And you will need more than a 4gb card. Saving the emulated 3DS memory alone will take up 2gb of your card.

16gb is enough
32gb is ideal

Remember, if you're pirating, all your downloaded games go to the SD

No mater what I do, I just cannot get white paint to not look like shit.

I've got a Stylet that I wanted to make box accurate but the white parts are vexing me. VEXING. Do you guys think it would look okay if I used a different color? I've got some steel and chainmail, I think that would go pretty well with her blue-and-black scheme. Suggestions?

Purchase yourself a resin kit. It will save your gunpla life. The ability to bang out a copy of something you just lost will be amazing. Plus you can use it for customs.

Mineshima D3A 600 was ok, in terms of budget & the usefulness. (10.++ usd after currency conversion)

just that some tool improvisation needed, such as hinge point re-tightening & blade sharpening afterwards. after all that it will work as your expectation.
a little oil coating on blade will prevent minor rust, as well as long term durability.

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.
>>

Ah thanks, I asked yesterday about it. I think the scaling up to 1/100 makes it look so much bigger.

Now that company or someone needs to make the Barbatos mace in 1/100.

When it comes to airbrushing and respirators, as long as I'm painting outside on a patio, using acrylics, would it be necessary to wear a respirator? I don't plan on using lacquers or enamels, in which case a respirator would definitely be good.

And would I need one for cleaning the airbrush after work? I could just use water to clean it out if I'm just using acrylics right?

Thanks for your help

If you are indecisive, you can do satin first, and if its not flat enough put matte over it.

Looking good, just keep in mind that chipping usually occurs on edges and areas of friction and wear. Unless its in real bad shape you won't find much on flat open spaces by itself, and not such neat scratches either.

I asked in the /m/ thread, but I'll ask here too to get some extra advice. How the hell do I get good at nubs? How do you guys do it? I really want to start airbrushing, but I don't want to until I can conquer nubs.

I've read mutliple guides. I usually try to cut it off the runner with a sprue cutter, cut closer, then shave with x-acto knife and then attempt to sand. But I can never seem to get it flat to the plastic. There's always a little "platform" of nub and I don't want to risk sanding away the rest of the plastic too. What grits are best for that? And/or what kind of files do you all use?

WIP Pic

Still getting used to new airbrush, I've a mix of vallejo air paints and citadel pots which gum up and splatter the paint despite being thinned (or being super runny when thinned too much).

I primed with vallejo poly white primer and base coated with a khaki colour to get a worn effect, on top I built up layers of straight white avoiding edges so it doesn't look squeaky clean. I'm temped to avoid washing panel lines and instead use the sponge weathering technique.

Next time I think I'll just paint every individual piece rather than chunks of model, pain in the ass plus brush painting is just running off some of the model for some reason.

>>5393334
Cut the runner as far away from the piece as possible. Sand the nub down as low as possible,then use a hobby knife (I recommend a chisel blade) to shave of the rest.

Don't use nippers to cut the nub shorter, that's how you get the white marks even after sanding down. Of course, the visibility of these marks vary depending on the color of the plastic.

Are there any variation kits that you want but Bandai likely won't make?

For me, I'd pay for MGs of Exia Repair 3 and Kampfer Amazing.
The former, I have the Metal Build, but a kit of it would be nice too.
The latter would probably use the old MG Kampfer mould, but it'd be better than nothing.

Anyone else here collect Hoihois? Just snapped this girl together and I've gotta say, she's one of the best looking kits out of the box I've seen in a while. Seems like all the hoihois need almost no work to look good, weapons aside. She needs, like, two screws painted and a couple of waterslide decals and that's it if you don't want to go crazy with customs.

That said, there's a really tempting black bunny picture in the instruction book I'm tempted to try.

Also, any side avenues I should look if I want that charger base? Or just the usual trolling Mandarake and Rakuten?

I think I've fallen too deeply in love with gunpla.
Looking at this pic feels like a reunion with a long-lost family, even though I have neither.
>>
>>5393729
That looks adorable and I'd love to build one.
Are they expensive? Are they koto kits or made by someone else?
If koto I'll pass, reprints are too over priced.
>>
>>5393729
I don't but I now want to. Where would you suggest I check for/buy some?

Not that anon but you can find them on mandarake from time to time. (Below their msrp too)

Usual places. Mandarake, Rakuten, and amiami still has that one in particular for sale.

Koto kits, yeah. That one's 3.5k on amiami, but the older ones are usually 2k or less through second hand sites.

Aside from the charging stand, I'm probably gonna grab little Ms. Edgy here and her transforming motorcycle next. And I still need some toy cockroaches for them all to fight.

I really want to make something similar to this after seeing gem strips at Wal-Mart & Dollar General respectively. But not necessarily pink or excessively girly, just very "fabulous" & glittery in a general sense. Perhaps with a blue or white theme.

What HG do you think would be well suited to a rhinestone makeover other than RX-78 who I just recently did a build of?
>>
>>5394032
I'm doing something sort of similar with a zeta gundam. I have the gems popping out of the thrusters and stuff, although if i was more skilled I'd be able to sand them properly to fit in the slots.
And obviously Zaku II would be an option for a rhinestone makeover.

Neat, I look forward to seeing what you've come up with. On the topic of Zaku models, I was debating this one, actually. It's a kit I've liked for a while but never gotten around to buying. Maybe clear & hot pink gems overall? Hmm. Do you have a color theme at all with yours?
>>
>>5394044
Eh, it's not gonna be all that great. The best thing I've done is a hand-painted mock. The color scheme is pink and black with the pink gems. It's a very belated birthday gift for my boyfriend. Pink and Black are his favorite colors.

>>5394059
I misread your post as "hand-painted rock", then you mentioned it was a birthday gift.
Thanks for the laugh.

Huh! Pretty similar to what I've got in mind. Funny coincidence. Share a picture when it's done all the same. Good luck & I hope your dude likes it!

Did a quick testfitting of this guy, doesn't look too bad. Please ignore the nubs on the Geara Doga legs, bought it built and haven't cleaned it up yet.

Gotta say, Jagd Doga is a top notch build. Despite being pretty similar-looking to the Geara, the part separation and overall build process is quite different on account of having a partial inner-frame. Had to switch the polycaps to attach the legs. Now I just gotta wait for it to warm up so I can paint this bad boy.

Has Bandai always had problems with their mix for white up until the MG era? The very first kit I bought the white in it was minty like that.

got borerd and pulled my MKIII off the shelf. i've always disliked how they engineered the elbow joints.

made the arms pivot from the round point of the forearm rather than the stock awkward (to me) point of articulation that was put center of the forearm.

this also made the arms a slight bit longer in the process but it worked out just fine.
