***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.

Hey guys, I do commission builds.

Each HG commission is $100
Each MG commission is $300

Anyone interested? Post your email.

Pic related is my latest commission for a friend. Since it was a small kit I gave it a 25% discount. She loves it.

Graze squad guy here, I got the first two Grazes built and I'm wondering which units I should start on. I was thinking about using the blue one for the melee unit since it's fast. For its main weapons I was considering the Freedom Ferder's tonfas?

As for the standard Graze, I suppose I could screw around with some heavy weapons I have laying around for the heavy unit?
>>
>>13397693

Aren't you supposed to have like six of these things or something?
>>
>>13397716
Yes, but right now I don't have the money for the other four. Plus one of the four I need doesn't come out until next month, anyway. I'm going to try and buy three more Grazes over the next few weeks.
>>
>>13397724

You could make the green one one of the two "regular" ones you were talking about.

The blue one can be either the melee one or you could make it your commander like it's supposed to be and think of what you're going to slap on it to make it commander-y. Like custom paintjob or gun or whatever.

Got my Exia R3 conversion kit and this is my proress so far. The plastic quality is on par with Model comprehend and there are some fitting issues as expected. I recommend sanding the peg where the tip if the barrel attaches to reduce its diameter as the fit is too tight. In the instructions, you need to cut off parts from the thighs inner frame. Meaning you may no longer be able to revert it back to normal Exia. You can not build 2 GN Swords as shown in the promo pics. but there are enough parts to build 2 GN Rifles.
>>
What color would be the easiest to paint with if your going to make a custom model?
>>
>>13397735
Yeah, the Commander unit was the one I kept running into a roadblock with. I looked at previously released Commander units and there wasn't a whole lot of difference between them and the regular version.
>>
>>13397741

Yeah usually "commander" just means a horn and a different paintjob, and maybe a gun. I guess you would have to think of what type of commander this is exactly. Beefy and hard-hitting or a fast Char-like motherfucker?

Well out of your ideas I'd say you should work on the melee one. Which I guess would involve making the head more generic since it's not a commander type anymore.
>>
>>13397760
>Which I guess would involve making the head more generic since it's not a commander type anymore.
That's easy enough. Just switch out the head for a standard Graze head.

Also, I'm thinking I'm going to use Tieren legs for the heavy unit. Big, bulky, definitely able to let the unit stay still while firing giant guns with insane amounts of recoil even for a giant robot. and feet flat enough that it won't topple over by looking at it funny. Yeah, it should go without saying that the Graze has some balance issues. It also has an insane amount of moving parts for an HG.

I say go for the Hyper Gunpla Battle Weapon set and use the Scissor weapon in Dual saber mode.

Could also slap a funnel set on him. Funnels are criminally underused.

Missiles are doable. I still have the missile pod things from the Leopard Da Vinci.
>>
>>13397786
Oh get an imagination. I'm sure mobile workers still get shrekt by beams. And if not, why not use them for anti-personnel duties?

Cute little girls with rocket launchers hiding in that debris over there? Zip a dozen funnels over there and turn them into embarrassed looking piles of ash.

Less trauma for the survivors, too! Guy next to you gets riddled with bullets and is a gasping bullet hole filled chuck of meat bleeding out next to you? TRAUMA!

Guy next to you gets zapped by a laser and is turned into a nice and neat pile of ash? NO TRAUMA!

No color is easier. Paint types themselves can be easier. Try a flat color out before gloss since generally flats hide nubs better. From there just pick colors you like.

"Before quenching (when the red hot blade is suddenly submerged in water) smiths coat it with a clay mixture to cool the edge slightly faster than the back. The difference is only a few thousandths of a second, but it turns the edge into an even harder kind of steel called martensite. It also creates the hamon. In ancient times, its main function was to create a powerful blade. Today, it’s an opportunity for the smith to express himself artistically."

I doubt you'll be quenching 1000 times injected Bandai plastic, but you can probably do it just by masking the sword and then painting it. Just be very precise.

How's the quality of Kotobukiya kits? I'm thinking of buying this.

Yes, I perfectly know that Aldnoah.Zero was awful as a show, but the Earth Kataphracts had amazing designs.

Like fucking hell it was "fine". I could perfectly write an essay about how utterly awful the writing was, like the Gundam SEED one that's floating around.
>>
>>13398012
I got a good look at an actual katana, and the blade edge from the hamon down, and this entire region has this look of brushed metal outward to the edge.

So I should either mask + sandpaper, or should I do a thin handbrushed layer of metallic paint to replicate the texture?

Agreed, but it might just be where I do a lot of art stuff, so I've gotten used to contrasting colors and such, and the fact that I prefer the sabers that aren't pink or green personally. I especially love the yellow/orange ones, not enough of those I feel.

I get what you mean, I usually don't either but I try to get rid of the ones that show. That's pretty cool that you can buy the parts separately.

the only real trouble is the damn topcoat, I use tamiya because there is a store nearby, but so far, I have not found something that can serve as a substitute
>>
>>13401522
Read the guide faggot.

But short answer:
primer is always best, especially with paints, acrylic is pretty weak.
If you are using a spay can you don't really need primer.
If you are going for a lighter color, or painting over yellow or red, primer is probably a good idea.

if your talking youtube reviewers, i do know one named mr robotto. I dont think he has as many reviews as p92 though

>>13402559
It's piloted by the "self professed genius pilot Mick Klim."

Mick Klim is an embarrassment to mobile suit pilots everywhere. He's basically Patrick Colessar in that his sole claim to fame is that he's gone up against the protag several times, got shot down each time but survives to fight another day. He accomplishes pretty much nothing of significance in 23 episodes and acts like a know it all smart ass when he's really dumber then a bag of rocks duct taped to a box of hammers.

That said each of his suits are very stylish looking and would make great display pieces IF THEY WERE IN FUCKING 1/100 SCALE!

And he gets a super cute waifu who adores him, so I guess he wins at life even though he's a complete failure in every other regard.

Except he was right about everything, especially the Towasangans' plot to use the fighting on Earth as an excuse to build a new space fleet capable of traveling to Earth so they can conquer it while the Earthnoids are busy fighting.

No, wear respirator while spraying. You should really have a spraybooth if you're in doors but failing that hopefully a big open window that you can spray right out into.

I am going to spray with my airbrush in my garage with the door fully opened and my respirator on. I know you obviously don't spray the plastic cement and putty, so you meant for spraying paint.

For the seam welding specifically, what should I do for safety. I can do what I do when using the airbrush and use my garage or be indoors and open windows, whatever works. Don't have a spraybooth.
>>
>>13403031
Honestly a simple dust mask would do. There are no real fumes from seam welding, since you generally just apply the paste to the parts, then let it sit for three months so it finishes bonding.
>>
>>13402816
If you really wanna see just how much dust is on your kits try shining a UV light on them
>>
>>13403064
OH NO. I've seen CSI.

I turn on the UV light and realize my entire room is semen. And so's my gunpla. Semen. All over EVERYTHING.

Seam welding, just don't breath it in from the bottle. If you want waft it over but it's still not a good idea.

You can order them online. If you're from the UK, you can ask richigo

From where i'm at, its hard to come by too. SEA
>>
>>13403551
you can't, or maybe you can sort by availability
>>
>>13403524
When it comes to brushes, you really get what you pay for so make sure you buy a good one.
It takes some time and skill to brush paint on evenly, and it's not something you'll just get right the first time.
So keep practicing and you'll get better.
>>
>>13403551
The Adele I have is the Diva Colours one.
>>
>>13403558
This. And as always, thin your paints.

Flat brush also helps to even out the spread of paint on large surfaces
>>
>>13403558
I was pretty much using a really cheap one from Dollar Store, with some awfully thinned paints, and with the lack of items to make painting easier(small containers for mixing and things to move paint with). Definitely getting better stuff soon.
>>
Went to the hobby shop, kinda surpised that they still had all the third party kits, but they also had a couple of lightning zetas and gself perfect. Bought the lightning zeta since the desgin is sexy
>>
So what does everyone use to transfer paint from the bottle to the airbrush? It's important for ratios and all, so I don't want to halfass that. And you can thin in the cup too, right?
>>
MG Gyan is on sale for 32 bucks on amazon, which is the best price I've seen for it there.
>>
>>13403730

you should mix thinner and paint in a spare glass recipient. Don't ever try those disposable paper/plastic cups, thinner will decompose them.
>>
>>13403755
Thanks, will pick up
>>
>>13403791
I actually meant thinning in the airbrush cup. Is that ok? Like, add as many drops of thinner as needed and mix with the paint that is in the cup? I'll get some glass bottles when I can too.

Also, looked up movement methods. Seems disposable pipettes are the way to go.
>>
>>13403482
Got any more photos? I'd love to see a full view of that beauty.
>>
>>13403730
get a mixing bowl, i would not recommend mixing in the airbrush itself. hard to see paint consistency but easier on a mixing bowl/tray
>>
>>13403901
Ok, so between what you and >>13403791 said, what's better for mixing? Glass bottles or paint trays?

And disposable pipettes to move from the bottle/paint tray to the airbrush. Those can't take lacquers very well, from what I read?
>>
>>13403946
Paint trays.

Just use glass pipette if you're afraid. If you use lacquer just clean them like you clean your airbrush.
>>
>>13403980
Got it, I'll pick trays and pipettes up some when I get the chance. I'm not necessarily using lacquer (mainly enamel or acrylics where I live), just wanted to be sure for future reference.

(yes, I've read the guide)
Curious about this kit
http://www.gundamplanet.com/mg-gn-001-gundam-exia-ignition-mode.html
I've not built any Gunpla before, but I have a lot of experience with 40k and model car kits, so I'm not new to modelling and painting. Just wondering what the feel is like for anyone that does both.
I know it seems to me that most people will say start with HGs for first time, but I'm wondering what you might say to someone who has some experience already.
>>
>>13404107
Has not so great ankles which make it somewhat difficult to stand on its own. Looks great on an action base though. I've only built normal mode, can't say anything for repair mode
>>
>>13404107
People say to start with HG's because they're cheaper, primarily. If you're willing to put down the cash MG's are by and large not terribly hard.
>>
>>13404107
I've heard from some anons that the ankles on the MG are bad. I've only built the RG but that's a nice solid kit

Mind letting us know what brand this is from? Some brands like Tamiya require their own thinner. I've heard people tell me otherwise to save my money and just use 93% alcohol, but I'm getting fine results with the Tamiya's recommended 2:1 paint to thinner ratio.

>>
>>13404301
Started out hating the Quanta too, but shit kinda grew on me the more I see it, enough to be my first MG.
The main body itself is great, it's the upgrade the Exia deserve. But the weapons loadout is shit, a single long sword and an ugly ass shield with sword bits gimmick. The sword with the bits is ugly as fuck and I never liked that sword ends shooting beams.
That's what I planned on changing in my custom, give it Tallgeese-like shield or a kite shield.
Maybe add a lance or something with a cape and a helmet tail all knight-like and a silvery colour scheme.
>>
>>13404107
The main reason people say to start with an HG is not because of the difficulty, but rather there's a good chance you'll mess some small stuff up, and it's better to mess up and learn on something that costs less than 20 bucks.
The only difference between HG and MG is the number of parts really

Yeah, like I said before, use Tamiya's Acrylic Thinner. 2:1 paint to thinner ratio.

Pic related is my own results. MS Launcher 01 katana was used as a testbed for Alclad Gloss Black Base and Chrome Silver. I was a bit impatient about it, and it ended up as a regular silver instead of a chrome. So I just decided to improvise with some Tamiya Acrylic Clear Red, which came out pretty great.

>>13404358
