  • I want to clarify something, are we allowed to enter a entry that I’m going to use both this comp and GBWC but I haven’t started building or moding yet

    • So long as you haven’t posted pictures of it anywhere else in the net, yes. So long as you bought the main kit in HLJ, yes. So long as you can prove you are an HLJ customer, yes.

    • Don’t know what are the rules and timing of GWBC competition but rules here clearly state – you have to post at least 4 photos of work in progress and cannot post photos/videos of a model that takes part in competition anywhere else in the web.
      If you don’t break those rules by entering both – I guess you can.

      • Just for your information (I MAY BE WRONG). GBWC 2017 hasn’t been announced yet tho, which is quite odd because looking @ the previous GBWC finals award ceremony video they would announce the next year’s GBWC in the end of the video (for example on GBWC 2015’s award ceremony video they announce GBWC 2016’s on the end of the video). However, this…[Read more]

    • If I remember right GBWC rules specifically say you can’t enter anything that has been entered in another contest before.

  • I was expecting something to happen on the 200th Episode of Gunpla TV looking forward to it

    Anyone know any tutorials for Autodesk Inventor to make a Gundam head, because i want to 3D print it, for fun since I’m its my last year of high school, so want to make the most of it when teachers allow the whole to play around with the 3D printers

    Its only a leak that might be true for next year pg project, I think ur local hobby store just got some wrong info.

    for more in depth details, the salesman was selling a Bandai PG 00 raiser for $64 from toabao (Chinese version of eBay) but when I recieve it, it came to be a non bandai product of PG 00 raiser

    • yeah, legitimate Perfect Grades wouldn’t be sold for that low price. that should have been your first clue. you can try to contact the seller and settle it first for a return and refund. you can also file a complaint to toabao saying the pictures provided by the seller is not accurate versus the merchandise you received. and maybe have them force…[Read more]

    Does anyone know where i can make report to Bandai that I’ve made an order from china that the image of the products PG 00 raiser from bandai, but when the package come to my address and Open it up the 00 raiser was from a third partry product. so i’m extremely upset

    thank to anyone who replies my request

    • Those moth@#%$^%@#$ers!
      I did a search on the net for you. There is no direct contact as e-mail to Bandai itself to be found.
      However I manege to found a link to their Chinese distributors, since it is purchased in China.
      http://www.bandai-asia.com/newsite/contactus.php
      They give three links to distributors. The last one is the one to contact I…[Read more]

    • you’re sol.. best bet is to go after the webstore you bought it through and try to get your money back if it’s from eBay or the likes of it. how much did you pay for it? is it close to the bandai retail price? as teetee580 said, lesson learned and chalk it up to experience. buy from reputable sources and any deal that sounds too good to be true…[Read more]

    • In the worst case, here is your challenge: Make it looks like the real deal (or heavily mod it), show some modeling skills.

      Hope you didn’t spend too much on it.

      Here is a Chinese 1/1 Gundam to cheer you up (if there isn’t much you can do, at least get a laugh from it)

    is it possible using spray cans

    • @Blackneko, Of course you can use spray cans for applying a matte, semi gloss or gloss clear coat. A lot of manufacturers like Tamiya and Mr Hobby make them. Just search and/or ask for them with your local hobby shop. Or you could always search online for a company which ships them to you. E-bay or Amazon will have sellers but they often ask top…[Read more]

      • @teetee580 Tamiya sells clear paints? I plan to (when I eventually get to painting) paint Natakus Dragon Fangs, V fin etc gold and then go over it with clear yellow. I’ve seen some nice results from that. The same clear paint that I was going to hand brush on actually also comes in a spray can?

  • Blackneko posted an update in the group Group logo of Q/A & Help GroupQ/A & Help Group 5 years, 4 months ago

    hey fellow gunpla builders, this is a question to those who have build the Unicorn phenix. How would you achieve the shiny gold coating by using paints and achieve the similar results on a different gundam.

    • use this product called ginsam its wht u use to make that chrome effect as for that gold plating its basically impossible to make that effect but if u want to try and get close to it just use ginsam its like this mettalic powder that has this very very shiny finish to it

    • The process Bandai uses to make gold is first chrome plate the runners, the they spray a transparent yellow over it.
      I ordered Alclad II Chrome to do this. But you will need an airbrush to apply this. In the past I’ve used a silver and applied it with a brush. Then a transparent yellow over it.
      The silver I used was an enamel which you can…[Read more]

    Getting my First PG, 00 Raiser any tips or heads up when building this amazing kit

    • Maybe a bit abundant, but a new side cutter and some fresh blades for your hobby knife…?

      • For the rest, never build the 00, only the Red Frame (PG). It was my first Gundam, and it’s a sort of glorified MG. In my opinion, if you can build a MG, PG will be no problem.
        Maybe more parts, but also bigger. If you follow the guide, I’m sure you will have no problems.
        If you might need some translation from the construction manual you can…[Read more]

    What are the difference between Tamiya Clear ( Flat) spray and Mr super Clear (Flat)?
    is there any difference?

    • well they’re different formulas ofcourse but beyond that not too much , Mr Color does however also have a UV Cut line which is supposed to protect your paints from UV exposure and thus preserve the color longer, I like using that stuff but can’t really tell you if the UV Cut thing actually works but it makes me feel better.

    Can anyone help what type of tamiya paint should be used for Drybrushing

  • Blackneko posted an update in the group Group logo of Q/A & Help GroupQ/A & Help Group 5 years, 5 months ago

    Need help on this one. what kind of spray paint to achieve a realistic sword because I’m painting Exia’s GN swords trying to make look like a sword not some light grey coated paint

    • silver leaf should do the trick thats wht i did

    • And apply 2 coats of clear gloss on a metallic paint

    • Krylon makes a spray paint that should work really well(I use it myself). It’s their Premium original Chrome. They make other paints like it as well(brass, silver, gold, etc), all made to resemble metal when totally dry. They come in these skinny cans, and normally cost a bit more then normal spray paint(in terms of volume), but they’re worth it…[Read more]
