    Since it is not a big piece you need, I think you can custom on with regular pla-plate.
    Either make lines on it, or cut small plates and place half on top of the next like: /////

    Do anyone knows a way to get some special edition gunpla? (well, other than buy it off someone online)
    I really want the 1/144 Nyaia Gundam which sadly only available at C3 x Hobby 2014 (Japan)

    • There’s the online shop genteikits.com that sells P-Bandai kits and some hobby show exclusives. I’m not sure if they’d stock the Nyaia custom and other resin conversion kits though.

    My gf built the MG full armored and glossed like @thebanshee13 mentioned. And about the seams @teetee580 mentioned, use masking on the psycho frames.

    IF you are planing to coat each part, make sure the joins are not coated as well as the sides between pieces also. Bandai are quite accurate at piece sizes. If you coated some joins, you will have…[Read more]

    So for info, gloss finish on matte finish gave the semi gloss effect, one coat on each

    Standing up for repair, you can get the Builders Parts System Base OR/AND some Hangar from non-Bandai line.
    You can always combine them.
    You can also add some 1/144 soldiers from Builders Parts series too

    For those from Montreal who enjoyed Build Fighters, the voice actress of China will be at the Otakuthon next week.

    I would recommend background, depending on how you plan on setting them up.

    • Thanks alot for replying, I was thinking of just the normal standing up for repairs or them lining up to launch, need anymore detail xD?

    haha, yup I meant gloss, have no idea how I misspelled that the whole time yesterday.
    Thanks for the answer, I guess I will go with original plan then. The matte is mainly to even out the sanded areas and get a bit of the matte look (thin coat). The gloss because I will get it sign and I think gloss top coat would help.

    You guys have any…[Read more]

    • @KrazJ, I would search for a big un-obscured surface. I’m thinking the back of the head…? Or the chest and tummy?
      @iamMajesty, yes, they do sell clear paints. Red (X-27), Blue (X-23), Green (X-25), Yellow (X-24) and Orange (X-26). Also a Smoke (X-19), it’s a sort of black transparent.
      I also dislike the yellow on Gundams and also paint then…[Read more]

      • @teetee580 Thanks for the response! I’ve only seen the gold paint with clear yellow over it on videos so seeing it in person would probably look different. I’ll have to try both out and see which one I like. I’ll take a look at your Nu Ver Ka. Thanks man. Happy building!

        • @iamMajesty Yes, you are right, the best way in seeing what you like best is making some samples. Of course it’s all about personal taste. Go with the one you like best and the model will look the best it can be.
          And you’re welcome. Happy building

    1: Montreal’s Otakuthon next weekend, she’s a guess
    2: thanks
    3: I mean thin matte then gross coat on top of it. I gonna actually try it on the runner first in any case. Will share the result when I am on it this weekend

    • Sorry, didn’t know what you meant with gross. But now I think you mean a gloss coat.
      Whenever you put down a matte clear first, due to a sort of white pigment, it will always stay matte when looking straight to it. No matter how many coats of gloss you put on it.
      However, if you hold the model in an angle, you could see a sheen on top of 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?

    Hi people,
    What would be the effect of putting a thin matte finish then gross finish? I think I read someone mention it a while back in this group.

    I want the matte finish to even out the sanded areas then gross it on top.

    Extra: I am planing to have the gunpla (beargguy 3) signed (by China’s voice actress). Any suggestion on if thick permanent…[Read more]

    • 1. where are u getting this signed??????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
      2. putting marker on it on gloss would probably be the best result since it gives the kit a smooth finish
      3. im pretty sure the matte finish will just take over the gloss leaving no traces of the gloss coat but i could be wrong and it can turn in to a semi gloss coat depending on how…[Read more]

    anything I need to know about the hobby saw? do I need to slice the same direction at all time or it doesn’t matter?

    any tip on curved cut?

    • i would just concentrate on applying even pressure to avoid stressing the plastic. post pics please!

  • KrazJ posted an update in the group Group logo of Q/A & Help GroupQ/A & Help Group 10 years ago

    Which way would be the best to cut a piece into two without damaging both sides? Lets say the piece is curvy also.

    As an example, lets say the spikes on a Zaku II ‘s shoulder

    • table-mounted c-clamp, terry cloth towel, and a sharp hobby saw? don’t forget adequate safety precautions!

    All I can think of is to try recognize the shape of the parts, mostly play on colors.
    Take advantage of the save and load color, it would help you to find the right fit.

    You can even make models that aren’t in it. Speaking of which, I should try a Jagd Doga

  • KrazJ posted a new activity comment 10 years ago

    Which one are you referring to? I think I remember seeing Stark Jegan with GM custom’s parts with Jegan color. The head was something else too

    • I’m referring to all of them. I’ve seen the Stark Jegan, Arios, Blue Destiny, Dynames, and countless others. I’d like some sort of guide to make them.
