I thought that even Wing was hot garbage until Build Fighters came out and Fellini saved it.

I honestly prefer some of the Mech designs in AGE over Wing.

This so much. The Leo is the design that best fits what a mass produced ground mobile suit would look like in any Gundam universe.

I hate on G Gundam too. Filthy rendition saved by Nobel Gundam.

I know Crossbone came out after but Deathscythe is some wannabe Crossbone Full Cloth meets Nomura Batman and Heavyarms, I don't even know what to say.
EW versions at least.

UC grunt suits blow wings suits out of the water. NOTHING is better than a zaku. Leo's are pretty cool though, and I guess they're better than the other AU grunts. I think China had cool suits in 00. But really, it doesn't come close.

Mook suits that actually can and will fuck up the gundams if used in abundance or with enough skill. Even Zechs proved that the Leo isn't shit within the first 15 minutes of the first episode. Lady Une proved through planning that they can take the fight to the Gundams if they needed to, though still lost cause Gundam. Space Tauruses forced the pilots to upgrade, Virgoes forced them to git gud. Wing probably actually does have the best usage of mook suits.

But the thing is that Zaku are chumps and are always chumps. They look cool but they still don't look like something that could be an actual fighting machine. Leo's look like they could actually be something a military would use. Every mook suit in the AC universe fits what it needs to do. Taureses are great high speed suits, Leo's are multi perpose suits. The Libra actually look like an evolution of the Tallgeese frame which the AC suits are built off of.

Yeah every suit has a niche that they specialize in which goes beyond the UC stuff. In UC it just seemed like they added special parts to an already made suit instead making a suit that specialized in underwater combat or flight. With space it didn't matter but they still did it with the Tauruses. If Oz needed to fight in a volcano you just know they'd design something for hit.

So, I finally did it... I have my second Gunpla!! AND IT MAKES MY HAND BURN RED.



Sorry for crappy photo, it's nighttime here and I suck with cameras. The first one, as by your recommendations, was an Exia Repair II, which was pretty easy. The God Gundam was... harder but I wasn't afraid of screwing up this time since it's not the first time.

I'm really happy with the result, specially for a simple build (and I have no clue how to paint and things like that). Stickers were a pain in the ass again, specially these tiny triangles on the legs, fuck those.

Now, I dunno where to go next. G-Self? Master Gundam? Maybe try something harder like a MG or a RG? I just know that I'm gonna buy another one in the future =p

I know they've got a Zodiac theme going but having two water mobile suits is a bit of overkill, especially since neither are amphibious and both serve the same purpose.

The progression does make a lot of sense otherwise. Leos are scaled back Tallgeese. Aires are lighweight flight models with Tauros's being their natural evolution, etc.

Don't agree with this aside from Wing Gundam and Sandrock.

All the others are very much their own with Spiegel and Scythe having very superficial similarities.

That said Wing TV MS designs are very weak outside of OZ.

However Katoki has made each of the Gundams light years better and the new Altron and D Hell from the Manga are the best the suits have ever been.

I just hope Snow White is closer to Wing Gundam then the Zero.

X and X a Divider are both really great kits. The HGAC Wing is one of the best as far as build quality and sticker use out of all the All Gundam Project.

X and Divider came out a few years ago, but even with that said totally worth the money.

I can't speak for Turn A as I bought the MG and haven't bothered to get the CCHG, but from everything I've seen its a nice little model kit.

I'll take a closer look at the designs, maybe I'll grab one of the Xs.

I finished building Wing. Really awesome kit except for the yellow chest pieces, they don't even stay on. I'm gonna glue both of them down tomorrow. Will panel line tomorrow too, really tired and I spent a few hours already. :)

The cutter I got kind of sucks, but I don't really care if it's not perfect, I just like building. I haven't built a kit since RG Freedom when it came out.









EDIT: The skirt armor, it looks like technically I could cut them down the middle and I could move the individually but I also feel this probably doesn't work and I would just ruin my kit. I just kinda hate it when the skirt is one piece.

First time airbrushing/sanding/caring about nubs and wow is it fun, but so time consuming! I re-assembled this to check the fit of the parts with primer on them yet again. Next I'll probably sand a few more parts once more along with additional putty. I have about 2 or 3 more sanding sessions then another hit of primer before I'm even remotely ready for paint.

And yes I know the parts aren't snug on there, it's a loose fitting before I go to sand!

I actually ended up doing it, it doesn't make a huge difference but I like it more! Put the yellow piece on the chest away because it doesn't want to stay on.

Well with the water suits one seemed more suited for combat and the other for underwater salvage operations.

Friendly advice: Don't line black on white, use a lighter color (grey etc). Unless you like the strong contrast of course, then completely ignore me. :)

This is great advice.

I did black on Wing, but I wanted that stronger contrast. On X, DX, and OO Seven Sword I chose grey.

It looks good. Brought down by it's over-use of bad CGI. And there is some elements I don't care for. the 2D art is good, but I actually think it's inferior to its manga counterpart, due to how it's too literally and how pacing issues aren't the same between mediums. Music could be better.

So I guess I'd give it a 7/10 for the first episode.

Finished HGUC Phenix and Titanium MG Rx-78-2 today.

Hell I will never understand how people can like the ugly blob that is -2 Anima version , still model is amazing and really shows how unneeded the 3.0 is. Titanium finish is totally the sex.

Phenix is awful in person. Easily the worst of the triplets, but then I hate the DE in booster configuration. Still glad to have the sisters together, and I got to build the three MGS to have them in Unicorn mode together.

RG duckroll Challenge Redux: Prologue

Got an RG Exia recently and since duckroll and Enron did it, I mind as well do the challenge too.

Just started and finished my RG Exia, RG Strike Freedom, and RG Destiny inner frames. Luckily I haven't broken any pieces yet and I will continue to do so as I paint and customize each RG.

I plan on using all 3 kits for kit bashes with a custom paint and part job. Will be updating my progress as I build my custom Gunpla in the next few months. Also gonna update progress on our HG Harute, HG Fenice Rinascita, MG Hi-v, etc. Probably gonna finish everything between Late May to Mid June.

If I break a piece and wreck my Gunpla, I'll wear this avatar, or any avatar the thread chooses for 3 months after I finish my current backlog.



2015 Completed Plamo

Luck and alot of prayers to your deity of choice? I strongly urge a pact with Satan for the best results.

On a more serious note, I used some tape and cut the rub transfer as thin as I could. If you can get some water transfers it would be easier.

I don't think there are Turn A or any Correct Century waterslides.

What I do recommend is exactly what Beth Cyra said with tweezers and making sure it sticks with the dull side of an xacto knife.

You could alternatively draw/paint it on since it's just a V with a small i indent in between.

You can paint it on pretty accurately if you use masking tape to create the lines for the Turn A symbol.

Doesn't the kit come with a cow?
