    hehe…. good luck!
    a little tip if your going to paint the yellow belt pieces is to put them on a skewer with blu tack on the ends and u can paint them all at once.

    update on the old kit – having a win with the restoration but cutting the windows is very sloppy. I’ve tried dremel drills, scalpels, and sharpened screw drivers with no luck. did the bottom of the saucer first as a test, if anyone can recommend a process to cut clean windows it would be appreciated. apologies for starting a new thread but i cant seem to post pics when replying

    not so much a build but more an attempt at a restoration/resurrection of a kit made back in 1987. gunna ditch the fibre optics and the awful silver paint

    yup its an old AMT kit. I’ve ripped out all the optics and having a go at making some replacement decals. the old halogen bulbs are definitely going in the bin, i have no idea how they didnt melt the kit or burn a house down. trying to drill out the windows but they are tiny, narrow and im only getting about 10 window to a snapped drill bit at the moment. one win is that i can thoroughly recommend oven cleaner as a paint stripper. it was great at ripping off the old enamel paint and leaving the plastic undamaged

    In reply to: Gundam Medic posted an update in the group Gunpla TV Is there gonna be a new episode with Todd and someone any time soon? It\'s been SIX weeks since the Hobby show episode. At first I figured it was because you guys were busy busy busy along with not really any gunpla kits being released. But now there have been some kit releases and still no episode. I really enjoy the episodes, and even though I was sad to see Syd move on, I was really excited to see Todd take center stage. Is there going to be a episode soon? I would really really like to see one. Thank you in advance. 😀 View

    resurrection!

    In reply to: cyberhero posted an update in the group Intermediate Modeler – Modeling Competition 2017 Thanks all for all the viewings and feedback. it\'s definitely a long journey for me. it paid off in the end. It\'s a big surprise I got bumped to the Advanced catagory and came 2nd. Thanks HLJ for organizing this great event. It\'s an eye opening experience to see the outstanding works from talent all over the world. View

    cheers mate, the only thing i can recommend if anyone is going to try something similar is to have a good supply of tiny drill bits and use epoxy glue for the fibre optics. model glue and super glue eats the stuff, and you wont know until you go to test the lights

    looks like i got bumped up too. considering that i had little experience with painting and LEDs i dont know whether to be pissed or happy that it made the cut

    • Yes you did. saw u entry in the advanced group. .. I love your led mods on the macross ship so much. so well executed. As u say.. not easy to pull it off with this small scale. I would love to get this kit too.. so much details!.. fun to see it coming to life

    the sinanju’s were sold out when i did my last order and the postage to Australia is horrendous. i was hoping for a re-release of the yamato 2199 kit but its been over a year and even with the new series nothings come up. maybe i can sneak another order when the missus is away. zoids are interesting but not really my thing but i have a bootleg astray bust that might peak my interest.

    the white gold highlights are hard to see with pictures too. i thought the kit was too garish with bright gold. also the blue tint silver on the piping and underframe doesnt really pop out in the photos…..ah well its been posted enough.
    onto the next kit, cant say that im enthusiastic.
    that was a fun build and i dont think there will be many others out there that peak my interest.

    • You see the colorseparation a bit better, but I am sure its not the real truth. Especially with shiny finishes it is hard to catch it

    • Another winner in the contest in my book.

    • Try Sinanju MG.

    • It is not that massive, but sure same in style. If you like complex mechanics in a build, you really should have a look at a HMM Zoid. The details of those Koto-kits always blow my mind.

    well got the hang of the airbrush now and my 3rd painted kit is finished. thinking i should have done this kit for the plamo comp but it\'s not very original-
    View

    cheers guys. yup otaku its a ver ka (200+ fiddly decals)….. and it was over 50 spoons its just that i stopped counting after i used a whole pack.
    trying to mix auto and hobby paints had some issues. clogged airbrush and some of the thinners for the top coat ate the test decals.
    you cant really see the different reds so i’ll try for some outside photos once it stops raining
