Don't forget about the lineart in the OP.

Death Stinger looks fucking cool.

Anyone here like Zoids kits? I've snapped a Shadow Fox and Gunsniper and have a Liger Zero in the mail. The two I've built are really fun and complex kits.

Should I decal? Silver waist pipes?

still gotta ink and topcoat but I've never had as much fun assembling a kit as I did with this.

I just built the 1/144 Sinker yesterday and may get to the Godos today. So much detail at such a tiny size.

>>5394832
I broke my HMM Berserk Fuhrer while building it via a retarded mistake, now I get PTSD just looking at zoids. Maybe I'll shoot Kotobukiya an email asking for a replacement piece but I bought it around October or November 2015 so I doubt they can compensate me now. Plus I'm certain I lost some of the other pieces anyway.

It's a very good line though

What was your mistake? I was gonna start on my fuhrer this weekend.
>>
>>5395087
Be careful where you put the neck sliding joint. If you put it in the wrong slot you'll have to take apart the chest from that point to take it out.

I lacked the patience for this and broke the slide by yanking it out. 90 dollars, gone, just like that. Don't be like me and fall to the Tard side of the force, anon.

I just put it together right out of the box because I was just going to put my 1/144 ones on my desk at work. They look pretty good as is imo. They have little tampos and some paint apps. The bases are painted too.

got bored earlier so i pulled my MKIII off the shelf to work on it more.

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.

You need something to fill or cover that space moving the articulation made.

>>5395759
those look like the hands they started using on the nu ver.ka a few years ago. you can order a KO version on ebay for like 12 bucks a pair. they're pretty good, and miles better than the nightmare self-assembly hands that were out some time in like 2010+ that would fall apart if you sneezed in the same room.

i had to layer some super glue on the balljoint into the wrist polycap because they were too loosely fit. i also did the same to the balljoint going into the back of the palm that allows for bazooka swivel. but i also did this for the Nu and rx-78 3.0 as well, makes for much more solid hands.

>>5395761
yea i plan to do that later, i hate that gap too.

>>5395770
yep i just refreshed after posting my reply, i had a friend pick me up several of those bandai builder parts light grey HD detail hands when he went to japan, what a fucking mistake, such terrible hands. idk why they didn't just at least mold them in the regular dark grey too. but yeah they can't hold shit and the open hand is absolutely soulless. how do you fuck that up.

>>5395622
i need to pick up the origin MG, but have been putting it off since i've already got 3 other RX-78s.


well another won't hurt, screw it. no corefighter surely makes it much more solid yet more nimble in the waist from what i've seen. and dat toe swivel.

-L-block Sanders. (I was originally really surprised by these. Way to good for the 3$ I paid for them)
-Metal Paint Trays (Paid 2$ for these at a local shop and got the deep ones from a dollar store for 25c a piece. Worth every penny if you don't have a set)

I airbrushed the at-st with a mid grey, then airbrushed highlights with lighter greys, added a an even lighter grey drybrushed on some of the sharp edges. Then enamel washed to panel line, clearcoated to seal it, then added some really thin blue washes in places before cleaning up some of the panel lining with copic pens.

For the base I just cut out a disk of 5mm thick hardboard, used builders filler to build up an uneven surface, then added kitty litter for rocks and sprinkled sand all over it with wood glue for texture. Primed it, airbrushed the whole thing desert brown, drybrushed layers of light brown then bone white and shaded darker areas with thin brown enamel washes of varying tones until it looked right. Then glued the at-st to the base & drybrushed a little around the feet to make them look kinda dusty (it was way too small to bother with sponge work) Thats pretty much it.

So I visited the Gundam Square, ate at gundam cafe and visited mandarake in umeda. I was tempted to buy the Revive gundam with spork and spoon accessories... but 4,000 yen. I got the GFT Hg Gundam though.

That being said, gundam squares gunpla were pricier than normal shops so I held back there in terms of kits.

That being said, I really regret not buying GM CANNON at mandarake. Hopefully next time.

Do you have a more in-focus picture of the Alex?

>>5398686
>I use liquitex gesso primer

Theres your problem. Gesso is chalk based & designed to stick to porous surfaces like wood & canvas, not plastic. No wonder your paint scratches off easily.

>>5398676
>I always prime when i paint
>I use liquitex gesso primer

How to tell you've primed: try sanding it. If your shit comes off completely after a few passes, you know it's not primer.

Also, watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_-v7-Wp6no

Why do people like the Z'gok and other Amphibious suits so much? I'm watching War in the pocket and that winter assault actually made me like the HYGOG and Z'Gok E

But then I see some of the other amphibious suits, and Char's Z'gok got a Real Grade, and I'm still wondering how something so dumb looking got to be that popular.

>>5398890

Nice opinion you have there.

I know, it's dumb to ask why people like thing. But I'm not dissenting I'm just actually curious. What's the appeal to some people? The bulky diving suit aesthetic possibly?

I like Z'gok because he looks like a frog/crab monster.

>>5398890
aquatic mobilesuits are unique in design and give creators much more flexablity since they dont have to limit themselves to a human shape. I love them personally and wish they got better representation in gunpla.
>>
>>5398910
I like the hygogg better, mainly because it doesn't have buck teeth.
>>
>>5398908
Because it had that cool scene impaling the GM and because Char.

>>5398921
What i don't get is why you would paint that white. Why make a target out of your cockpit? I can kinda get it for the Gundams' red cockpits, because the Gundam is traditionally in bright colors, and for the Char custom, because painting your MS red is pretty much a way of saying "fuck it, i know you can't hit me", but the regular mass produced Z'Gok already has a white cockpit. Same with the Zaku Kai.

I just wanted to thank all of you awesome people for getting me into this hobby, it's some of the best fun I've had in a few years! Just seeing your works made me really want to get into it, despite some rough anxiety problems and having shaky hands! When I'm building a model, I feel free from everything and it really soothes me and my hands don't tremor much anymore. I've got a huge set of models I'd like to take a picture of if you'd be okay with that, to show you all what you've inspired me build. I can't do painting too well yet, but maybe someday I'll get around to doing it.

If you encounter any uneven seams you could just sand the uneven side down instead of filling it, though there could be complications. Knife first and sand with varying grits as needed. I like to start with 600 most of the time.

They're way sturdier than youd think, but are limited in motion when attached to,the hands. You can get a few good shooting poses, but don't expect the anything crazy.

>>5400030
Mostly stroking on edges, but sometimes dabbing perpendicular to flat armor.
>>
>>5400044
Is there a way for the Buster to support one or both guns just by holding them with its hands? Or do you have to rely on the arm things to keep them up
>>
>>5400055
I've never actually tried that. I think it would work weight-wise, the arms are very sturdy, and the grip on the guns sticks onto a thick and solid rib along the fingers. I think youd only gain a small range of motion, because the most inhibiting factor seems to be the location of the grips and the size of the combined gun. I arrive home tonight, so I'll post some trial pictures for you when I can.

those gold accents on the minigun (heavygun?) look top notch. what brand and color name paints did you use?

is it just the lighting or is there white paint overspray on the hip skirt missile cover, the shoulder missile pod, and the top of the back shoulder missile pod cover? not trying to take you down a peg, just curious
>>
>>5400100
Thanks for the comments! Gold and silver accents were done with sharpies if you'll believe it. Stupid trick, but they work well for what I'm doing.

The hip and should parts are probably due more to underspray where I didn't hit it up fully with the orange. I'm probably going to go back and dirty those up a little more to get rid of the issues. Sadly I couldnt even see it until I looked in the photos.

I'm having an issue with sanding nubs down on my pieces.

What I notice is it feels like the nub itself isn't getting sanded down, but instead everything around it is. I'm using 1000 grit and 2000 grit sandpapers I bought from an auto shop, and yet no matter how I try to sand the nub off that little white spec never goes away and I'm afraid I'm gonna end up sanding off a huge portion of the piece trying to get rid of it.

Any tips on how I can improve my technique? Should I use a higher grit sandpaper? Lower? Some other tool?

Though I AM super jelly of your Genoace Custom.
>>
>>5400495
I plan on it once I can conquer my shaky hands a a little more, if I do, I'd like to go back over some of the bottom shelf works. They're some of my first models and they seriously need some clean up or retooling. I tore of them up bad. I hope to one day though, Genoace Custom is one of my favorite models that I got to make!

>>5400493
Kamiki Burning was a ton of fun to build, he feels a lot more solid than the first TRY Burning, I knew the sword was going to be a neutral color, just wish it was one of the dark greys instead of white!

The MG Full Armor Unicorn was an absolute blast to build, but the head can be a little iffy sometime, the panels on the side can be loose and I worry about them falling off sometimes. Expect to put some time into it, with all the add-ons and the finer details!

Crossbone Maoh is one of my favorites, top five for me. The only problem is that his arms and hands have a harder time holding up the heavier weapons he comes with, but his flexibility is amazing and the weapon set he comes with rocks. Severely needs painting on the weapons though, they're pretty neutral white.

Both of the Nobels were great, but considering the newer joints, they're outdated. I try not to pose them too much because their feet don't always stay on and it's a lot of plastic on plastic contact in the arms and legs. Still, they're worth getting if you can.

GM Sniper K9 is also in my top five, I love the weapon sets and the backpack functionality, just the amount of poses this kit can do is great and he comes with a good number of hands, which is a rarity sometimes. It can be a little weird to pose the backpack in K9 mode, but it's solid.
>>
>>5400511
I'm going to get around to re-arranging them once I get everyone else unpacked, but they sorta just go where I put them right now, sorry!

>>5400493
Ran out of post room, but here are the others!

The Psycho Thunderbolt was a little rough, it's a personal thing, but working on his colors was a little tough on the plastic because of stress marks show a little more on red. Overall though, he's got a lot of detail and fully decal'd is a perfect piece for a collection, a labor of love if you would. Warning, when fully packed out with both of the thrusters and weapons, he's back heavy, so be ready to balance it out. I've got the sword perch from the Blue Frame Astray under the lower thruster and it works just fine.

Gouf Custom is top five material, he's got it all going for him and super fun to build. He's got his full gear load out from 0083 and they're smooth and to color nearly. It's a little hard sometimes removing and attaching the full shield and minigun combo, but it looks great all the time. Don't forget to get a Ez-8 and two RX-79(G) sets to complete the set! One of the best episodes in Gundam history!

>>
>>5400557
Oh believe me, I'm starting a whole new collection right here that I hope I can take back to the states.

The HG 00 Gundam 7 sword is the kit I put the most time into. You had to color the v fin as well as all the clear pieces. Along with panel lining and top coat, it's the kit that required the most work. I enjoyed the process, although the results didn't turn out perfectly.
>>
>>5400583
I hope so too, it'd be a shame to have to leave behind your new works. Maybe there's a way to box and ship it all to your parents' house, but it might cost a bit. I don't know about that sort of thing, sorry.

The 00 Gundam has some great models and the 7 sword variant looks awesome though. I guess that's part of the process and the difficulty to the hobby is that not everything turns out just right, but it's the journey that's the best part! I hope you can make it back to the states someday and combine your two sets my friend!

To 'save' on shipping and sell the other one.

I was going to make this exact post. The sanding in the Bandai "Gunpla is Fun" series makes it look so easy and flawless. I use 2000 grit and it does next to nothing to the little sliver of nub and scratches the entire surrounding area.
And when I remove with an exacto, it took extra plastic off because I misjudge the angle of my cut.
It was my first gunpla. I'm sure I'll get better with practice
>>
>>5401281
Use a metal file to remove most of the nub. 800 to flatten and make the surface uniform. 1200 and up to buff and polish. You can go up to like 8000 or 10,000 grit using polishing pads
>>
>>5401291
Does the guide say how to shop for a file?
>>
>>5401311
Just grab any hobby file set. They're all the same. Tamiya's basic file set is a little pricey but that's what I have, so I'll shill them.
>>
>>5400440

use sanding sticks. The wave ones are great and cheap from hlj.

Im assuming you dont paint if your concerned about whitening on some nubs. Whitening on plastic is unavoidable sometimes, if you really want a perfect unpainted finish, you have to grind out the whitening with a dremel or carefully cut it out with a hobby knife, then fill the hole with plastic cement (which shrinks as it hardens so you will need to fill it a few times) then sand it down again for an invisible mark free finish.

poster of >>5399651 here.

try sponge. Just cut a rectangle of sponge about 2 cm x 1cm. fold it over lengthways
and hold it with tweezers. Then you need to rough up the sponge to be as un uniform as possible, nip at it randomly with nippers/rotary tools, low grit sandpaper, blunt scissors or whatever until its uneven as hell. then dip in silver paint, and dab it off on a rag until you cant see any coming off on the rag anymore.

Apply it by VERY gently dabbing it perpendicular to the edge you want to chip. Dont stroke or move it around, only dab.

If you want some edge to look heavily worn, do the exact same with black before the silver.

If you overdo it, use a thin enamel wash of something close to the base colour to tone it down. (or airbrush an incredibly thin coat of the base colour then re sponge it subtly)

Then grab a different camera app. There are multiple of em for Android.

As far as a fixed focus, I've never seen that issue before with the Leon... strange. Either way, just find out where the focus is by moving an object forwards and backwards until it's nice and sharp. Then you'll have an idea of where the focal point is. Once you have that you can easily take nice looking photos.

I don't know what you mean by "excellently", but this is what Star Bright Gold is supposed to look like. It shouldn't be orange and it should be even.

Airbrushing actually takes practice and comparing your past build and this one I would say you need a ton of it if you want to improve. Like hour a day for a few weeks kind of practice, not even kidding.

Also, for all things sacred, stop thinning in the cup.
>>

>I don't think I've ever managed to put down one coat and it be perfect off the bat
See, that's where the practice comes in.

Airbrushing is not like handbrushing where you put a bunch of thin coats and the first few look like shit. You need to be able to do a perfect thin coat the first time or you will never be good at post shading etc.

It goes double for metallics: Alclad Chrome looks the most convincing after one or two thin even coats and if you spray more it starts looking like tinfoil. Pic related (the black metal look) is what you get after one coat.

Get a box of spoons and just spray until your paint runs out, there's really no other magic way to get better at this. Also, if your airbrush came with the book, do the exercises.
