>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.

Like i said in my earlier posts i had to downgrade phones. The stock camera app is complete shit but google cam app is slightly better sonce i can change iso and whatnot, but what i noticed is it cant really focus since the stock camera doesnt for some reason. Its day time now so ill try to take better pics. As for the blurry i just naturally shake alot, held my breath for each shot but ill try again

>>13470628
saddly had to delete all my pics cuz apparently saving old photos will turn into corrupt files. Shoulda paid attention in computer classes a lil better instead of playing games

>>13470704
I heard good things about OpenCamera, if you have an Android phone.

I have an android but this phone i think will piss off any real techies on /g/ just had to wait 5 minutes for it open up a text, shit wont delete the corrupt files ans then it just didnt want to do anythin
>>
>>13470798
If you don't have anything important on it you might as well back up your contacts and reset the phone. Also check to see if the memory card's corrupted as well if you save images to it and they keep getting fucked up. The blurry camera issue might just be a hardware problem if you aren't just doing something retarded

>>13470931
You see i just bought it 2 weeks ago. I cant upgrade since i didnt have the funds atm im still paying off 2 s5 cuz of the warranty.When the first s5 broke it was 5 months after i bought it but since i didnt pay it off "the warranty was voided" or some bs. If i sound really mad/buttblasted is because i have a bad history with em that almost got me into legal trouble for something i didnt do /blog

Anyways i remembered that i have an old zaku-tank so im gonna add it to my ground unit. Give it some cannons to help cover my sniper

Man the zaku-tank seems really bland. At least the guntank had those fuckhuge 180mm cannons; zaku-tank just has tiny ass grabber arms. Maybe you could pick up one of the Zaku Cannons from the same line and use the torso instead so it at least has a main gun?

Oh i kinda fugd up the inside that holds the arms. But i did replace the right arm with an old fg zaku arm that has some mobility while the grabber arm is permently in a fixed spot. I have the ms cannon set i was thinking of using those or modding a rocket launcher for it

I could see why straight oob builders hate the Super Fumina so much. Face is a nightmare, articulation around the waist is terrible because of the design, few weapons and the exclusion of the ability to use some like the sabers and gattling forearms. I actually think that Super Fumina has great potential with painting and kitbashing though, so I can't wait to see what they do with it on reddit.

1) Make or buy a photobooth. I'm using a Foldio 2 with diffusers (http://orangemonkie.com/product/foldio2-pre-order/) - ignore the URL, it's Korea, the product's out and shipping - it's not the greatest thing ever but it does the job for now, and I don't need extra lighting outside the box, and at 15" it's just the right size for MG and HG kits. I definitely build some stuff that won't fit in here, but I'll cross that bridge when I get there.

2) Phone. Standard app. Pro mode. Set ISO to 100. Change your White Balance based on background color - Auto probably isn't correct. Set filter to either Standard or Vivid (check between the two for each different background color, it'll change how they feel). Leave camera focus on auto and just use the tap-to-focus function. Go back down to brightness and step down between 0 and -1 with -1 being "black background" and 0 being "white background".

Let the camera lie for you. The kit is much more solid green than this awesome blue transition feel that it has here, but the shadow tone of blues get exaggerated to what I wish it looked like in real life all over, especially on the black backgrounds.

if you're talking about FAGs, then you might as well buy a FAG instead. still i'm sure that someone out there is already planning a build with the Super Fumina to try and one up the FAGs. until then, it's will never get close to FAG quality even with mods

There's a few painted Super Fumina pics out there and it still looks goofy due to the face. The MechGaikotsu review is hilarious because he is straight up snap pleb and he reviewed the FAG Gourai a while back and complained that it looked dull and plain. He also said in the comments that Subpar Fuminer would blow it away.

Get the 2.0 MGs of em.
Haven't built my Gouf yet but looking at the kit in person it looks like a minor variant of the excellent Zaku 2.0 frame.
Char's is always a cheap 2.0 MG.
>>
I wanna grab some zaku 2 kits. Would getting the hg F2 and white wolf be a good starting point before getting origin char's zaku?
>>
>>13475821
The HG F2 is nice for the time. The FZ is also good. So are the MSV releases.
>>
>>13475821
origin char zaku is an incredible easy build, and imo it should be put in the guide specifically. you'll probably have troubled with shin's himo because the lower body comes with alot of small parts and the spiked shoulder shield had some odd gate placement for nippers/hobby knife. I'd recommend grabbing a Zaku I (any variant) and the Zaku II, which can be nabbed on Amazon for $22 together atm

if you use pic related you should be fine.i did list the other stuff that isnt glue because thats what everyone else recommends for tightenning things but i personally dont trust it to hold because itll wear out like you said.

also fwiw i glued the foot rocker joint because the front half of the feet hardly have any movement it makes the joint worthless, and if anything, detrimental to stability with the funnels attached.

I don't think Revive Z'gok was ever announced, also comparing two different lines is not the same as comparing engineering reworks for models within the same line.

Do you know where the pegs are?
Get your exacto to split the two pieces. Dont lift. Just open the seam
Repeat for each seam in front of a connecting peg.

covered parts with detail will be painted gunmetal, titanium silver, gold leaf
Exposed parts will be painted german grey
The pistons and piping covers will be painted silver

Best AGE kits are all the main Gundams and all the Feddie grunts. The Vagan kits are meh.

With SRW kits, the newer they are the better, generally.

Little off topic but you guys spend hours discussing paint so I figured I'd ask here instead of making a new topic.
