show me your model kits: gundam, anime, mecha etc (640 x 480 img. only)

  • Hi po mga sir.

    Newbie here and I am planning to build one soon.

    Tanong ko lang po is ano magandang pag practisan for first timer?

    I was eyeing on RG Gundam Wing for less than 1k. Then after reading forum threads for couple of days, people tend to upgrade their kit to MG, kasi naliliitan na daw sila.

    So now, parang mas gusto ko na mag MG kasi mas malaki ito at mas matibay... kasi nga mas malaki yung plastic na gagagmitin.

    So my question is, ok lang ba mag Daban MG muna ako bago mag Bandai MG?

    My dilemma is Bandai RG or HG has almost the same price as Daban MG.

    Eh ayaw ko naman magrekta to Bandai MG for my first build kasi baka mag fail, sayang naman 2k+ :D

    Since Daban MG is considered Class A ( in short fake ), are they even worth buying? Or mag Bandai RG na lang ako for practice ng first build?

    Any help would be really nice, thanks in advance.

  • Hi sir wala pa po rg si gundam wing baka po HG sya hehe...I think mas maganda pagpraktisan mo muna is ung daban models na MG. Naexperience ko na kasi sir ung plastic ni daban particularly sa Tri Star DOM na hindi sya masyado nagkakaron ng stress marks which is ok for beginners (di ko alam kung same lang din ito sa mga ibang models ng daban)...if they are worth buying I think yes if kapos ka sa budget or beginner pa lang...wag ka muna mag real grade sir hehe mabusisi syang buohin at sa isang mali mo palang posible na may maputol ka ng di sinasadya dahil sa liit nya...
  • Ay oo nga, HG nga siguro yun haha.

    Nag order na ako ng Daban MG Gundam ARF @950 at Bandai MG Wing Zero Custom @2k.

    Medyo mahal ng konti kasi taga Pampanga yung reseller.

    Unahin ko na lang yung daban, haha.

    Tanong ko lang kung ano tools need ko? Nipper ba yun?

    At kapag sinasabing "painted", Panel lining ba yung ibig sabihin nila?

    TIA.

  • ^ taga-saan ka sir? kung malapit ka lang sa divisoria sir mas mura ung BL dun pero kunsabagay pamasahe, pagod at oras din ang iisipin...If pang praktisan maganda pala pagpraktisan sa daban ung AGE-1 simple lang sya pero ok na ok din yang ARF haha..sa tools eto need mo

    1. Side cutter - for starters bile ka nun sa alexan sa megamall kung malapit ka lang 4thfloor ata un 110php
    2. Hobby Knife - meron n2 sa japan home center 66 ata ito plus ung extra blades nya 66 din tapos 10pcs na
    3. Marker - meron n2 sa suki naten na national bookstore or office warehouse unipin 0.03
    4. Nail buffer - for removing nubmarks

    about sa side cutter wag ka mag nipper (although dito din ako galing sa nipper hehe)kasi baka mauka mo ung plastic kasi db ang cutter nya paganito \ / kaya mahirap matantya unlike sa side cutter na paganito _ _

    sa painted ang ibigsabihin nila dun sir is ung na-custom paint na ung kit kunware dating red sya ngaun pinalitan sya ng combination ng yellow at black para magmukang bruce lee ung kit nila hehe

    sana magkapera na ako para mg 1/100 naman mabili ko so far sa pagbabasa ko dito ang pinakagusto ko buuin na mg ay ung sinanju, heavyarms, deathscythe custom at astray red frame

    may maisasuggest pa ba kau na magandang mg 1/100?
  • 00 raiser, nu ver. ka
  • Guys yung thinner ba na ginagamit pang paint ng panel lines ay yung mga nabibili sa hardware store?

    Or may special thinner pang panel lining?

    Or mag lighter fluid na lang ako, pwede din ba yun?

    TIA.
  • @Jaysd

    May mga gumagamit sir ng paint thinner na galing sa hardware store lang and so far wala sila prob dun. I also tried it sa runners mukang ok naman sya pero dapat moderate lang kasi pagsobrang dami magiging brittle ung plastic.

    Tamiya paint thinner lang din sir gamit pag nagpapanel wash (pagmay budget ka) pero I think same lang din ung performance nya sa paint thinner hehe di ko padin kasi ito natatry

    If lighter fluid naman gagamitin mo isuggest na wag mo gamitin ung fuji ung nasa red container hehe bad kasi experience ko sa kanya eh muntik ng maging madumi ung sengoku ko sa kanya T_T...Zippo lighter fluid na lang sir un nga lang di ko alam ung price nya haha
  • may alam ba kayo na nagbebenta ng parts for RG? may nawala kasi na pieces sa shoulder ng RX-78-2 ko e =(
  • @renzo

    Ok thanks.

    Tanong ko na rin kung gumagamit kayo ng plastic cement?
  • ^ di pa po sir eh hehe...pwede rin pala sa panel washing ung panel accent if may budget ka ^^ no need na mag timpla timpla hehe
  • these are tamiya enamels heavily thinned in enamel thinner. Mas mahal, around 200 to 250 pesos na kaso you di na problem ang pre-mixing.

    you still need lighter fluid for clean up though.

    for plastic cement, I tried using it for aircraft model, it works the same way as you see in the gundam tutorials in the net.

    gamit ko yung extra thin Cement for seam line removal. The normal cement is advisable for heavy scratch building or glue-ing.

  • share ko lang po mga sir hehe Pencil shading para sa mga kapos sa budget ^^

    <click here for link>
  • Ano ba effect ang makukuha sa pre shading? Yung parang worn-out look at hindi mag mukhang plastic?

    I think its only good for dark colored gundams, tama ba?

    Pero kapag white yun gundam eh, hindi ata applicable yan?
  • parang may shadow effect ung kit mo hehe at mas muka syang realistic.ok din sa mga white yan light nga lang ng konti para di naman mukang taong grasa hehehe
  • mga sirs.... anu maganda gamitin na pandikit sa parts ng gundam wing zero? lagi kasi nalalaglag ung part ng feathers sa wing nya eh... sana ung pwede pa rin magalaw kahit naka dikit na...

    try ko post ng image dito..


    my good to go solution is bostik blu tak. its like a silicon/clay based putty na maraming purpose. Pede mo sya ilagay sa loob nang joins or polycaps as fillers. Yun ang ginamit ko sa 00raiser ko. Pede mo rin sya gamitin to hold the parts sa stick when painting or placing inside a cardboard box. Pede rin sya for masking parts prior to painting.

    Sa mga nag tatanong about Zippo lighter fluid, just bought one in a local Lighter Store sa Mall. The small one will cost you 150 PHP. In Makati Malls makuha mo sya sa G4 4th floor and may nakita rin ako sa adventure /outdoor shop. Ang binili ko na enamel is Tamiya, small bottle at lil's hobby shop costs 80 pesos tapos yung fine tamiya brush is 100+. Bumili narin ako nung maliit na metalic tray for mixing the paint for 28 pesos. Sana makatulong.
