    I was just looking at posts 20 minutes ago, and now I’m looking at squat. ****. That didn’t last very long this time :\

  • ChapelMkII posted a new activity comment 7 years, 5 months ago

    Then my sinister plan is already working, lol XD

  • ChapelMkII posted a new activity comment 7 years, 5 months ago

    Yeah, as soon I find suitable colors for her type of pink, but only after I address the Kampfer and “That other project” πŸ˜€

    Left my Kampfer and paint supplies at my friends place (whoops), so I snapped this together last night instead. It’s going to become Kirara’s, so I left the booster pack off.

    That is one sick kit bash for the rifle you’ve got there, D! Even better that it doesn’t look like the rifle’s weighing down the supporting arm any πŸ˜€

    Yeah, BanDai was really kind to the G-Gundam fans early by giving us 4 of the most important kits in MG form, but it would be great if they’d give the other Shuffle alliance members some needed HG love on the 1/144 scale, or at the very least make a 1/100 Rising Gundam since it already shares many of the parts with the MG Shining >.>

    Yeah, although most of them are familiar territory for me. I already helped build an HG Sengoku for a friend, I actually still own my MSiA Sazabi, and the Spiegel is only unique in a cosmetic sense, since all the Fighting Action MG’s share the same internal skeleton. The only one that’s really “new” is the Geara Zulu, which I look forward to…[Read more]

    Beer is a vital mainstay and called “Talent Juice” in the circles I mingle with XD And yes, they rule. I think one though is riding the euphoric high of her recent promotion and that’s why this wound up happening. Not that I’m complaining, lol XD

    So my Birthday was on Friday and the whole weekend became one long celebratory affair. The highlight though was Saturday morning, when my roommates took me to the local anime store (Wiz knows which one :P) and told me to go crazy until I hit the my allotted spending amount. So my backlog has grown (again) XD
    • Looks like that will keep you busy for a while, and belated Happy Birthday wishes.

    • Happy Birthday! You have a good Gunpla but an even better set of friends πŸ˜›

    • Happy birthday man!

    • happy beer day chapel! or born day if you don’t like beer lol. those are some good friends you got.

    • Happy birthday. Got yourself a mighty fine haul too.

    • Many happy returns. And fine Gunpla choices!

    • Happy late birthday. Great kits. It’s nice to see something from G Gundam. You usually don’t see those kits around these days.

    Hand. Something has to be mixed in.

    • Hmm, the only thing that comes to mind is Tamiya Acrylic Gloss Clear, the bottle kind. I’ve tried it before as an impromptu brushable clear coat and it’s kinda like what you’re looking for.

  • ChapelMkII posted an update in the group Group logo of Gundam Forums Gundam Forums 7 years, 5 months ago

    Somewhat odd question: Can anyone think of a paint that cures like nail polish (complete with acrylic shell), but ISN’T nail polish? I’m experimenting with something and helpful answers may actually yield some pretty nifty results.

  • ChapelMkII posted a new activity comment 7 years, 5 months ago

    True. Oh yeah, check your inbox here. Sent you a message since our PM chain is currently halted >_>

    • Yep, I got it this morning. I still have to dismantle the kit and pack it up. I got the box ready at least, haha.

      • Well that’s great, started up the RP again yesterday after a few days pause…and Database errors…yay.

        At this rate I might just start a free forum for the RP’s to avoid data loss and any major drops, I understand s*** happens but this is geting ridiculous at this point.

        • That wouldn’t be a bad idea. Hell if there isn’t already and anyone is willing to spare the coin, why not create a Mecha/Anime RP Forum?

  • ChapelMkII posted a new activity comment 7 years, 5 months ago

    Seriously, it’s getting ridiculous. I thought they said the next round of fixes were supposed to keep this from happening again???

    • And the time before that. πŸ˜‰

    • I wonder what the issue is this time. To be fair, though, they never announced that things were completely 100% back to normal and functional again after the last downtime.

    Dangit, forums acting up again D:

    • Here we go again. πŸ™

    • well looks like the waiting period started again XD.

    • Atleast it wasn’t just me x.x;

    • And I realized I had just updated my kit listing the sale thread before it went belly up. Bah!

      • I only wanted to see everybody’s updates to what they were working on x_X. Also gripe about not be able ever find a decent priced Hguc Nu or Hi Nu XD in stock.

    • I couldn’t even login this morning due to the errors. I’ve already sent MCGundam an email about this. Which, I haven’t talked to her in weeks. So I’m afraid that I don’t have any light to shed on the situation guys.

      If I hear anything, I will let you all know.

  • ChapelMkII posted a new activity comment 7 years, 7 months ago

    Looking sharp, Walker!

    Also… Are you doing something different when you upload pictures? Every time you do, I see two separate threads for the same pic, and if it’s a thread where you upload multiple pics, it creates a thread for each picture o.O?

    Definitely loving the execution of the shoulders, but I dunno how I feel about the asymmetry the old shoulder spikes give. Since you’re not using the shoulder plates from the amazing, I’d consider transplanting the spikes from those over.

    • Cool. I like how you shifted the angle of the shoulders to give it a different look. About the old shoulders, if you have two different ones, why not use a different weapon on that side? That might help the asymmetrical look.

      • I like the way it’s turning out with those shoulders,and those massive gatlings. Im pretty sure that would destroy some stuff in a gunpla battle.

    Now THAT is some slick hand painting. I always love drybrushing. It’s a cathartic experience for me to bring out the details ever so slightly πŸ˜€

    • Thanks, good sir. I think handpainting this thing will be the surprise of the year for me in terms of finished kits. I find dry-brushing to be pretty fulfilling so far, which is strange because it can actually take more work and more time. Mysteries of the hobby, haha.

    You should come down to Orlando for the convention! We still need a Mao!

  • ChapelMkII posted a new activity comment 7 years, 7 months ago

    Lol, you guys are cold… But you’re right XD

    I’m definitely slowing down on the KA to make sure the Build Fighter kits are ready. As for the Ecto-1, that may very well be the one I go crazy with. You build Japanese kits for so long, you forget how meticulous they can be in comparison to other companies. I have to scratch-build some parts to…[Read more]

    Repeatedly heated metals wouldn’t have much of a luster to them, so I say go with the grey you were looking at initially.
