  1. Your Falcon is looking really good Ryan. Keep up the good work.

  2. Hey guys, awesome show. Been watchin since the early episode all the way out here in Australia. Just got 2 quick questions. First is for Ryan, since you lived in Australia for awhile did you have follow a AFL team? And for Syd, are there any bases that would light up a MG unicorn like the FA unicorn at the previous hobby show?

    Thanks and keep up the great work!

  3. Syd,
    You say you don’t do major mods. What would you call your Sonic Marasai then? It would be an awesome kit to show your talent. Keep up the great work guys

  4. who is editing your videos now I thought you said it was jsut you 2, but your credits say otherwise

    Also I know you siad you do not do much phyiscal modifications, do you guys have anyoen who does who could show us some more tips about more serious mods?

  5. hey guys love the falcon can’t wait to see whats coming next and sid what is a good way to start painting kits should i try from HG or work on the SD kits… what would you say is better for practice or would it be easier with a mg since the size of the parts

  6. hey guys i love the show and has watched every episode so far. you guys really inspired me to build more gunpla. by the way, Ryan what has been your favorite kit that you built on the show so far? thanks

    Hey guys, keep up the good works. I have a question though. I usually spray flat coat on the runners first then build it and panel line it. So should I panel line it first then spray flat coat?

      You flat coat the runners first and then build it? I’ve never heard of such a thing. I kind of want to try that method out.

  8. The Danboard looks really nice.
    Syd – Can’t wait to see you start building the pre-2000 kit.

    I’ve been wondering for a long time if to get one of those MGs as some models were not 2.0oed

    I have a general question.
    In terms of time and complexty how does a Real Grade scale to an MG?
    Iv’e been considering for some time trying on a RG but I fear it will be too close to the HG kits. On the other hand I did read people claiming they are more complex then some MG kits.

    Can you guys talk about this? Perhaps elaborate on the amount of parts etc?

    Thanks (And thanks for answering my question regarding the EX white base)

  9. very nice i love star wars

  10. Ryan-san,
    I think it is better to spray the clear coat on a painted test piece, befor you spray on your falcon. Sometimes, the B51X series spray makes a frozen looking surface depending on humidity and base paint (Not Good for acrylic).
    Water base spray paint, such as B502(semigloss) or B503(matte), might be better.

  11. Hey Syd,
    What brand of top coat do you use before panel washing?

      Hi Clay,

      I use the Gunze Mr. Hobby Mr. Super Clear Gloss Topcoat. It’s lacquer and has never caused me any problems.
