Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

So many new [Gunpla] & other scale models to spend our paychecks on thread

    it's not a gundam, it's a "elf sigma" from "active raid" (shrug)

    i can't tell what the price is in that photo but the internet has it going for $20-30

    Going rate is 2500 yen, so that range feels about right.

    It's a figurize kit, not HG, and that means it's a bit on the tall end, and generally more detailed. Still comparable to HGs instead of MGs, but don't think about the standard IBO kits. Compare it to something like the Doven Wolf.

    (Active raid is apparently about Future Cops in power armor? Can't be assed to figure out more, but it's the same line of figures that has Goku and Cell.)

    huh, it's $56 here, when your bog standard HG kit is normally in the $20-30 range.

    Wanna make the left dude

    Beeb doing mental designing of this

    The tube would ve made from a pill bottle. A lot of the curves would have to go to the difficulty of getting nice curves in styrene. The arms would be base long retabgles with thinner layers added on the give them shape. Would probably beed a permanent dtand to stay up?

    That LEV was brilliant. It means the player takes Jehuty as the state of the badass art instead of the default, and that's a pretty neat trick.

    And it has so much detail put into how it plays. Like, it can wall jump. There is no reason for you to figure that out, but it can. Because Zone of the Enders 2 is an incredible game.

    Also, the Doven Wolf is pretty big!

    Yay, all the painting stuff I ordered is in! Now I just got to wait for a day that's warm enough to actually paint. I assume ignoring the "not recommend below 50f" warning would be a bad decision.

    If this isn't ok to post about I'll remove it.

    Starting today, Gundam Info on YouTube is going to put up one episode of Gundam Thunderbolt per week for 4 weeks. Each episode will only be up for a week, so you can't wait to watch it all at once.

    The first episode is up right now on the Gundam Info home page.

    That's all, back to your regular gunpla posts.

    You need to flip the hips over so the gun is between the legs.

    I had the same dilemma when I went through Little Tokyo this weekend.

    But I have Gunpla that are unbuilt so an Interceptor will have to wait.

    So I've scraped some cash together and am finally going in on an airbrush setup. Trouble is, I'm hearing conflicting info regarding cleaning the thing. Does anyone have any recommendations on what product they use as a cleaning solution for the brush itself? I've heard everything from proprietary brand cleaners to alcohol to just thinner to even windshield wiper fluid.

    The paints I'm planning to use are Tamiya's acrylics. And I'll be using their primer, which I believe is a lacquer.

    So, I'm going out to Little Tokyo this weekend. I have a feeling my wallet is going to be crying. I need to get together a wishlist of kits.

    Catching up on the show, and despite the backlog I already have, I need me one of these heavy boys with the horn helmets. Looking around they are not available? Or not yet anyway? (Ep 37 if i'm not being clear, its the one defending blondie in the same thing carta used)

    It's out, but not on Amazon yet. Bluefin imports is a bit behind Japan for most kits.

  • QuantumTurkQuantumTurk Registered User regular
    Yesssss. Though like a lot of the gjallahorn stuff I like it a lot better on the show than the model. I think it's just what that blue plastic does to details. Oh well, still a lot of good kits.

    I wonder if I should get a pot of yellow paint or if a yellow Gundam marker would work when I get the Barbatos Rex. I don't normally mind stickers, but the HG has some real nasty yellow stickers for the tail blade and toes.

    Or maybe I'll just spring for the 1/100...

    Yellow Gundam marker should be fine, especially if you get a small brush to help paint the Rex Nails.

    The Graze or the Shiden sounds good for that. Nice, cheap, basic kits with a lot of room for the personal touch. I'd be game.

    I was thinking the Barbatos or maybe even that new kit (Julia?) that had a shit ton of boosters
