Re: The Official "Identify This Mecha" Thread Ver 1.0

In Kazuhisa Kondo's manga "The Revival of Zeon", there is what looks like a mass produced RE-GZ. The book has profiles showing the MS in the story but this MS was strangely not listed with them, and no listing for this MS in Mahq or Gundam Wikia. Since TROZ takes place before CCA, perhaps this was ...

Re: Dark Duel's Gunpla thread

Wow, you're right, looks like they didn't give this one much thought. A very small adjustment to the peg diameter (no more than a millimeter) would've made the difference. On hindsight though, you could've used blu-tac instead, a small amount placed on the short peg woulda saved you the trouble of a...

Re: Nu Gundam Question

Except that Nu's backpack is not symmetrical - one side mounts the fin funnels, the other a single large beam saber, and that side lacks the mounting point for a second funnel array. Ergo, it would require potentially a substantial modification to be able to mount a second bank of funnels. That's w...

It'll fit any HG Stiker pack compatible kit using the round peg connector, even the Dagger105s.

Re: Cheap but good master grades

Go for the RX-78 OYW Animation Colors , even at regular price, it's just above US$30, and is, for me, the best incarnation of the RX-78 in MG line. The Aile Strike ver RM. just goes a bit above the US$40 mark, but still, it's Strike Gundam, and this version is so much better than the first MG (and t...

Re: New to Gunpla help

try to apply thin even layers around the ball joint, maybe 2 layers first. wait till it dries, then try fitting the leg. add a bit more white glue if it's still a bit loose.

Re: New to Gunpla help

It looks like a case of loose polycaps, based on your pics, coz I don't see any problem with the ball joints... Were the polycaps distorted or anything? You might wanna try tightening them up with some white glue. Just apply enough to thicken the surface of the ball joints and make them fit snugly t...

Can you post a pic of the leg that keeps falling off, particularly the polycaps and also the ball joints on the pelvic/crotch area?

Re: Custom Lineart Request Thread: Lucky Number Seven

Hi guys!

May I ask for your assistance in doing the G-Exes in Arbalest colors? And also, if I may have the Age-1 Titus in G Gundam's Bolt colors.

Thanks!

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch, & Rumors XI

case in point: MG MkII v2.0 is compatible with the G-Defenser from the v1.0 release. admittedly, the connection point for this is quite simple compared to the Striker packs, but as was already mentioned, this is one way for older kits to still be viable in spite of the newer kits released.

Re: Gundam SEED HD Remaster airs Winter 2011

I would have thought that with seed being computer animated they could just reload the models and re-film at 16:9. the older series were stored in film form so the HD versions scanned the cleaned film footage and removed any matting done for it's tv broadcast. If you compose something and draw it t...

BTW what is MaK? MaK, or Ma.K, is short for Maschinen Krieger, a series by Kow Yokoyama that focuses more on real-world military mecha, with emphasis on powered armor and walking tanks as well as anti-gravity powered craft. See samples of the mecha here . (In the Beargguy image, the Ma.K Beargguy i...

Re: Upcoming Models, Merch, & Rumors XI

No Grade, High Grade, whatever. The line was where we could get, in recent years, near MG quality kits in 1/100 scale that will probably never get the MG treatment. the 00 and VS Astray NG 1/100 lineup are quite recent. they just don't get released as often, especially now that people seem to be mo...
