The problem with that is the Barbatos WAS designed by an easterner and I thought it would have been more appropriate to use something relatable. There's aren't really any recent animations that really care about accuracy when it comes to designing western style armor, and the only thing close would be vidya from FromSoft or Capcom.
Either way I'll still order the new Barbatos even with the silly block hammer/mace

I used it on my candy coated MG Unicorn and the paint has survived transformation a few times so I'd say it's pretty strong.
Alternatively you can try decanting

Well fromsoft has people wear actual armor as they design stuff for the souls series. Like the only feminine thing is just the heals, the rest looks pretty normal. But yea that mace/hammer is interesting, im thinking it may open up trick-weapon style. Like the mace had a spear/pile bunker

Maria the Virgin Witch, and no don't take this as a 'haha you wrong imma correct you', take this as a 'if you aren't aware of Maria, then go and watch it.' I don't think I have EVER seen anything animated with that level of accuracy for the 100 year war armor. Ignore the outfits of the witches and their familiars, everything else is extremely accurate, even the combat itself during war scenes follows a lot of the old paintings.

Ok sorry, got a stupid question. What do you guys do for replacement parts? Bandai and Bluefin give me the run-around and send eerily similar emalis back about some yet to be finished parts service but it's been over a year and they still say the same thing today.

Also, to those who made the guide, thank you, you are angels in human form. There may be an answer to this question in there somewhere but I'm still making my way through it as it's a pretty hefty amount of information to read.

It's the scale.

Metal parts actually look really good on something like a 1/12 bike, but on a 1/100 robot a huge hunk of bare metal just looks unrealistic.

Painting and top coat is nice but all that thought of scratched paint is really sad so I only do that for some kits.

>>5427594
Im not trying to be an elitistfag or tell people how to enjoy their hobby. It just seems like a lot and really quick, just think he should slow down a bit and take in everything.

Or maybe I'm just a really slow builder, I usually only do maybe 1 or 2 every two months but I began fully painting/detailing all my kits. I realize its not for everybody and I'm not saying he should do it but I've found myself appreciating and enjoying every kit I finish now a lot more than the ones I snapbuilt quickly
>>
>>5427601
I take forever painting a kit since I fuck up constantly and I don't have an airbrush, so I'll build a few kits in between just out of box. I wish I could show my most recent build, but my phone won't connect to my computer.

two were started last year, both MG's, only finished this year.

One was just the RG Skygrasper. The three are OOB HG's I just wanted to do while waiting for stuff to come in for work.

If I "elitist' build everything, I'll never finish anything, only really have weekends for r&r and even then, I get dragged out by family and friends.

Actually had to turn my phone off so I can have some 'me time' today, kek.

ok guys in need of help here. an acquitance of mine is building his first Gunpla kit, the Exia Dark matter. He came across something in the customize advice that he can't figure out for detailing the Ice sword. I had a look myself using 1999, and I can't figure out exactly what they are doing either.

Is anyone familiar with what is going on here? as far as we can tell it looks like some kind of paper is colored then somehow attached to the blade, but that doesnt seem right to me.
>>
>>5427684
I scribed some panels here and there and rebuilt the shoulder peg connection while I was at it. I was going to do more but I'm starting to burn out and just want to move onto the cleaning stage and start painting now.
>>
>>5427688
Yeah, it's hard to see but they are using a sort of adhesive paper to color the blade rather than painting it. They display a similar technique with foil paper for chrome details and car modelers sometimes do something similar for chrome trim.

Well uh.. Next time buy a cheaper model and try looking up some weathering techniques and practice with that.

Asked a thread or two ago, but I didn't get many responses, so I'm checking again. Anyone here with any experience with the Maschinen Krieger kits? I'm fairly interested in them, but they look a bit beyond my skill level, especially with the level of painting required. Or do they just look more difficult than they actually are? Any tips for gitting gud, especially with the 1/20 scale people?

then why bother destroying such a fine model if you can't at least put a little effort into it?

aside from the guide (which you should read), there are loads of tutorial videos from youtube or what have you, which can help you improve your techniques. and they only take about 3 minutes of viewing.

a little black paint on the eye piece to properly highlight the eyes with the led and the result is pretty good

Does the Nu have an easy switch for the eyes? I want more units with LEDs but the only one I've got right now is the 00 SS/G and it's obnoxious as fuck to turn on/off the LED in it's chest. The GN Drive ones aren't exactly easy either.

Their connection to each other isn't the strongest. It will hold but you will know when you come to it.

I'm finally going to make the transition from snapfag to paintfag, and this guy is gonna be my first. I picked him because he was cheap and easy to build, but painting him seems like it's actually going to be a bit of a challenge at some parts, mainly the shield.

Also, upon looking at this pic, I realize I need to do some work on a few nubs. But yeah, hopefully in a couple weeks time I'll have something worthwhile to show you guys.

I'm cross-posting from the /m/ thread (I don't come to /toy/ very often, but the Gunpla thread here seems more active)

I've been working on my HGUC RX-78-2. It's not much but it's the first Kit I have done and actually painted, and it makes a world of difference. It wasn't anything special, just cans of Tamiya color but I do like the results. I didn't have anything to panel line with after I painted so it's not totally done yet.

I want to get a little better at painting on HG kits before I move on to the MGs I have in my backlog

Some SD's are actually tons of work to do properly, this kit was one of the most challenging I've done due to the trim. If you're just starting out I'd suggest trying lots of different techniques and paint types on your SD so you can take that experience to another kit you care more about.

If you just try to do a basic paint job that's fine, I tried hard on my first kit too, but I think if I could go back I would do something like different brands of paints per limb, masking, different layers of paint etc. just to get more knowledge and experience which is what you lack in the beginning.
>>
>>5429862
With SD, you practice both your masking and painting.

Good luck

Not really, no. The revive box art doesn't have them nor does the art in the manual, even if the display build in the manual/box/etc has them untrimmed. Bandai also makes it a point to tell people to remove them anytime they do tutorials and tips.

Besides, official or not they look like shit

You were 100% right about the shield not being properly affixed. I guess I just didn't push hard enough when I put it on the first time. As for the safety nubs, I was with >>5429919 originally and I thought they were part of the design now, but it looks a lot better without them.

Also, what would be the best Zaku II to pair with the HGUC RX-78-2? I am thinking the HG Origin version should work, but I don't know if the amount of detail in the Zaku would clash with the streamlined design of the HGUC Revive Gundam.

thanks, I've never had to do these okawara style lines without decals before; it's a total pain. In retrospect it would have been better to paint everything this color first and then just mask it and paint it green, but I wasn't sure if I was going to have time for it. I used 1.5mm masking tape along the bottom edge then eyeballed the gap where the paint is to be 1.5mm so I always had a reference to make sure the line was the same thickness.

the HG X1 and p-bandai X2 don't have a skull on their chests and the MG X1 gives you the option of whether to use the chest piece with the skull or one without it; the p-bandai X2 doesn't have the skull chest either, it may have the parts for it but I don't remember since I didn't build mine that way. the HG X Maoh has an enormous skull on its chest but is a pretty good looking kit if you want to leave the skull off of it. These are the only crossbone/crossbone related kits I own so I can't speak on the rest of them.

Here's a pic of my MG X1 using the non skull chest piece for reference.

I really am not sure if the HGs chest is darker or not but I get wait you're saying, the MK-II is a great design. well then here's a pic of my HG X1 and X2 when I was still working on the X2. I should take some completed pictures of the X2 now that it's complete, but since it's almost 4 AM that will have to wait until tomorrow. Also the X1 is one of the easiest kits for nub removal in my opinion so you have that to look forward to as well.

Is there any cleaner that will remove lacquer primer? Tamiya surfacer in particular.

>>5430901

It's been fine in my experience (maybe a bit thick, but it comes with the territory of spray cans), but since I got an airbrush I've moved to Alclad's primer since its so easy to use.

>>5431671
Surfacer is surface primer you dumbass. Don't be so anal about a product name when someone uses a fucking synonym.

Gotta sand that shit.

dude, i meant the MG X1

Question to those of you who have used Banzaihobby: is there any particular reason why some of their kits have different weights than they should? Example:
MG Chars Zaku 2.0 weighs according to HLJ (which I presume to be accurate, I could be wrong) 660 grams, while HB tells that it weighs 740 grams. Where does this extra weight come from?
>>
>>5431729
It looks like it has awful nubs but doesn't.....
>>
>>5431752
I think the answer is: "your mom".

But seriously, their postal service could just be classifying packages according to weight, so they're rounding it up or down in accordance with that.
>>
>>5431761
Sounds plausible. The different weights threw me off a bit.
Thanks fagget.
>>
>>5431735
I can't speak on the FC since I don't have it but for the regular X1, the main issue is how well it holds it's weapons imo, mainly the beam zanber since it's so large which causes the wrists to become loose pretty quickly, all the rest of the weapons aren't really a problem though. also sometimes the thigh armor likes to fall off but since I've improved with gunpla I've fixed that problem. oh also putting the anti beam cape thing on it is pretty fucking frustrating. that's really it though. I think the people that complain about the MG X1 are usually referring to the FC since it has all that extra stuff and the muramasa blaster is probably real heavy but once again since I don't own it I can't say for sure.
>>
The absolute madman.
Also wtf is the point of building groups? One guy snaps it and another paints it? Sounds a lil gay for gunpla, maybe good for actual cars but not tiny toys
>>
>>5431772
but it doesn't have any polycaps rite? so any loose joints can be remedied with cement/nail polish?

actually, is using mr. cement for tightening anything recommended?
>>
>>5431777

Everyone has strengths and weaknesses as builders and painters. If everyone works together on the same kit and does what they're best at, the kit will be better for it.

It's pretty simple, actually.
>>
>>5431846
Thats kinda overkill though, and imo it kinda stops the person who cant into say, paint or line, not practice or work to improve. If it were a themed group build like what were doing that be cool, but 5 guys working on 1 kit is too much
>>
>>5431846
This.

I've seen some good mods and customization ruined by shoddy painting and weathering. I've also seen some great paint jobs hut by giant seam lines left unfixed.
>>
>>5431723
>Surfacer is surface primer
No it's not, you fucking idiot. Educate yourself.

Once again for our microcephalic friends, _Tamiya_ _does_ _not_ _make_ _surfacers_.

Does /m/ also have a Gundam thread or is /toy/ still the better choice?
>>
>>5431909
It does. It routinely gets hit by a shitposter though.
>>
>>5431914
More like constantly. Right now he's posting pornographic gifs under spoiler images.
>>
>>5431777
hehehe...
>>
>>5431930
not like the guy posts his shit here or anything
>>
>>5431909
The /m/ one has more gundam/gunpla banter and this one is more straight gunpla building. Lack of mods on /m/ means more shitposting of course.

Lurk on /m/ /gpg/ for a bit and see if you like it.
>>
>>5431735
Don't know how I accidentally replied to that, sorry.
>>
>>5431882
I honestly don't understand what you're trying to accomplish by trolling like this. It's like you're trying to argue that bondo isnt putty.

Surfacer is designed to fill scratches and small gaps.

Surface primer is designed to fill scratches and small gaps.

yeah some of those are kinda hot though

I have the Surface Primer (that's what it says on the bottle) that comes unthinned in a bottle. It has microfiller in it, it's definitely a surfacer.
>>
>>5432050
>>5431948
What's the difference between primer and surfacer anyway?
>>
>>5432096
about $1.37 :^)
>>
>>5432096
Primer primes the surface for paint, i.e. it's a substance to which paint will adhere better than bare plastic.

Surfacer is for filling in any physical/texture imperfections, like knicks and cuts, even uneven surfaces if it's not too extreme.

A lot of hobby primers have microfiller these days though, suitable for use as surfacer and as a primer.
>>
>>5432118
Thanks for the chuckle

>>5432133
We should just stick with naming conventions then, no one calls tamiya primer "surfacer" anyway.
>>
Is the master chief sprukit compatible with any gunpla?
>>
>>5432149
what's that? a new Gundam arc?
>>
>>5432144
Not really without modding. I can hold most HG weapons just fine though.
>>
>>5432191
It* can hold
>>
>>5431784
correct, is has no polycaps but i personally haven't had any trouble with loose joints so i haven't had to use anything to tighten them.
>>
>>5432191
Perfect.
>>
>>5432118
Alright you got me.

>>5432160
Some movie.

>>5432133
I wonder why Mr hobby don't make all their surfacer (using 1500 now) primer surfacer instead of just surfacer.
>>
>>5432233
>I wonder why Mr hobby don't make all their surfacer (using 1500 now) primer surfacer instead of just surfacer.

It can still be used as a mechanical primer, it's just not chemically active. It's tougher than most acrylic paint and the texture provides mechanical grip for paint. If you sand a surface you'll find paint will adhere better to it than the finish straight out of box, same idea.

As for why they don't just make all their surfacer chemically active for plastic, who knows. Maybe plastic primers harm resin and polyester?
>>
>>5430913
that looks pretty awesome. Didn't think GM colors would work quite that well on it
>>
>>5432300

>it's not chemically active

compared to what? Mr. Surfacer hangs on better than almost anything
>>
>>5432300

they have a separate resin primer

where are you getting this "chemically active" shit
