    What is the difference between the MG Hyaku Shiki 2.0 and the P-Bandai MG Hyaku Shiki Raise Cain?

    Proportion changes (Raise Cain is much lankier, especially in the torso) different backpack, different gun with a shield that can attach to the barrel.

    The Raise Cain is the Hyaku Shiki Crash from a few years ago in standard colors.

    The only thing I found about it is:
    The customized GunPla featured in the Gundam Build Divers [GIMM & BALL's World Challenge] side story series arrives in shiny gold armor. This kit shares the same molds with the previously released MG 1/100 Hyaku Shiki Crash.

    and:
    The Crash model was refined from the classic Hyaku Shiki, featuring a streamlined body and a pair of much prominent thrusters at the back. The new Raise Cain model kit will share the same mold and accessories from the MG Hyaku Shiki Crash model kit. Unlike the monotone-grey Crash model, the Raise Cain model will adopt the gold plated colorway on the body, metallic blue on the chest and metallic red on the toes—a direct reference to the original Hyaku Shiki colorway. The kit will also include the beam saber and beam rifle, which can be transformed into a shield.

    EDIT: Aargh! Beaten by Mr.Ral, who was already on the next page :wink:

    I see the Char helmet with the Red Comet Zeon Forces and Universal Century, which is self-explanatory.
    The 06 with the S refers to the Zaku II, which has model number MS-06S (S indicates Commander type).
    Zaku head with fin and Red Comet is logical too.

    But the Strict-G with New Yark; I guess the G is for Gundam, but why it is strict, but for the rest I have no clue.

    There is a city named New Yark inexplicably about where Seattle should be in 0079, iirc.
    it's where Garma bites it.

    So out of boredom I looked up what other ships you can get in 1/200
    I found the USS Hornet and parts like brass etch and resin but also the stuff to do a wood deck like it had. Just I found it odd and quite sad you could not get F6F Hellcats in 1/200

    I found more ships but again these are furniture sized models so.

    Kinda wish I'd waited on my last Koto order, given the current Black Friday sale.

    On the other hand, more plastic on the way from GundamPlanet. Another MSG booster, Tertium Gundam w/ Arms, and the Gao Gai Gar FA Girl.

    Strict G is Bandai's clothing line. They mostly focus on marrying Japanese streetwear (itself inspired by New York streetwear) and Gundam.

    But how many Gundam-branded suitcases did you get?

    I assume many, because how else can one store their Gunpla collection?

    I got a soft case from someone in my Battletech group. Turns out it's almost the perfect size for storing my Gunpla and 30MM kits.

    Good lord, the difference between a full can of Mr. Top Coat and an empty can is... intense. Like the empty can was sputtering and barely putting out anything, and then the full can was just unloading.

    I don't think I should use these if they are 1 model per can...

    Edit: Also instead of trying to spray them all gang style, I did each piece individually so I could have a bit more control and see what happened. So that used more spray.

    If you spray sections like arms, legs, or torso you can typically get 2 MGs per can unless it is something with lots of accessories like fin funnels on the Nu Gundam. But if you plan to top coat a bunch of kits and have the space for it then an airbrush and compressor will be a lot more cost effective in the long run.

    I am honestly about 90% there to buying an airbrush, being in an apartment be damned. I even brought up my desire for a setup as a Christmas gift.

    I just did the second coat. I think I'm getting better at this... but I am very peeved that one of the legs decided it wanted to fall apart, twice. Thankfully in both cases it was inside instead of out over the balcony, but it was still annoying that I had to handle it before it finished drying.

    Meanwhile I'm on the fence whether I want to finish taking off this stupid u-bend or just order more replacement airbrush parts. Or get a whole new airbrush, but that seems a bit overkill even considering how old my current one is.

    Ya got recommendations for airbrush topcoat? A bunch of the ones I know about are unsafe on bare plastic or waterslides
