I'm probably the worst gunpla builder of all time. I completed the shoulders of the Exia only to realize to my -horror- that the right arm actually had a nub catch which apparently got clipped off by mistake. This isn't a huge problem, can probably fix it up with clement if I really needed to, but since I'm going to be replacing the leg part anyway, I might as well just replace that arm part as well. For now the GN cable is just going to have to dangle there. Lol.
I'm definitely not ordering any parts until I finish the weapons as well later this week. Wanna make sure that I've broken everything I can possibly break before replacing stuff. Roflmao. >_<
Finally finished RG Astrea. RG sure is very finicky. Small part that easily to fall over. other than that fun build. It certainly feel much more high quality compare to "hollow" HG. Since RG Astrea come with extra part that allow me to make F1/F2/Exia. Is really fun to swap the part to suit my taste. At the end I opt for F2 with F1 head and Exia GN Drive. Also it come with those wonderful arsenal. Cannot wait to make wonderful pose
Finally got around to watching Unicorn and I enjoyed the animation, it's beautiful. Many of the story aspects are suspect to me, but then again I haven't seen most of the UC stuff, so maybe it's harder to see how some would react in the environment. Mostly just some of the character reactions to things seem off with how someone would actually react.
I don't care if the story wasn't ideal, I'm SOOOOO buying a PG Unicorn one day!
Does anyone else have tips for airbrush technique and thinning? I want to use more metallic colors without accidentally clogging up the brush. Any ways to prevent clogging and wasting paint and thinner?
Is there pre-thinned metallic paints available to airbrush? If not is there a recommended container with squeeze cap that I can use so I can thin my own metallic paints?
I'm also afraid of making the parts brittle when I use lacquer thinner and primer.
I want to improve before I start touching the MG Hi-v.
Also, how do you prevent your paint being wiped off when you want to panel line? I spray acrylic top coat and cure it but when I go to use thinner to clean up, it wipes away the paint I sprayed on.
I'd love to just throw on top coat and be done with it, but I don't think it beats how it looks when you paint it on.
