    Finished applying the HG decals, or most of them, maybe like 95% of them. The decals are not numbered and I had to use the MG ver Ka manual Sinanju as reference to know what to put where. It was tedious but not that difficult. Also used some metal decals(leftover from my MG Sinanju customisation.)

    Jeez, that looks great!!!!
    Got those hands too in 1/100 scale. On the MG Destiny they look great, tried them on the MG Wing Zero and they looked way too big.
    As the Sinanju is a really big suit, the hands a just the right size in my opinion.
    Bought the rounded fingers in 1/100 scale for my MG Sinanju, but the rounded ones from that line are way much bigger then the square ones, at least in 1/100 and it had rthe same effect as on the Wing with the square fingers, they looked pretty awkward…..

    Most Alclad paints are lacquer based. They have some enamels in their range, mostly the clear paints and they have a water based clear gloss.
    They high shine paints from Alclad need a black gloss (white seems to work to, so I’ve seen that is) base coat. If this base colour is sanded and buffed before applying the main coat, the end result will be even more shiny.
    If you haven’t had a go at Alclad, I can highly recommend it, if lacquer based paints aren’t an issue for you.
    Their primer is great too!

    Updates for my RG Sinanju with painted inner frame and added LEDs. Just a side note for anyone who\'s gonna paint the frame too-Some parts aren\'t meant to be disassembled without high risk of breaking; some pegs(like the ankle joints) are already perfect fit and adding even a fine layer of paint will make the joint too tight to move, so paint the parts but mask the pegs. Some pegs can and should be painted( e.g the waist parts) to reduce the \"wobbliness\" of the kit. Btw I cut some excess parts in the waist inner frames parts to make parts flush and have a longer waist pegs. Anyone having build this kit will know what I mean. I wanted to glue the fwd/bwd articulation but I believe this helps to diminish stress on the waist peg, so I didn\'t. Now I only need to connect some wires, add decals and make the base. I\'m really enjoying this kit.

    Sorry, almost forgot…. Good luck with the build, looking pretty sweet!!!

    That’s why I try to watch a much as reviews of a kit I am planning to build, to get to know some of it weak points, like weak joints, armor that may scratch paint off and such.
    This is the first time someone gave such detailed information, exactly what I’m looking for in reviews!
    So thank you very much Hellvin!!!!!!!

    The next alley of parts on sticks.. Someone is on vacation in Gumplaland. This time its a MG Gouf Custom. The shading of the parts is hardly be seen in the pictures.
    View

    On the shield and the side piece of the chest shows the shading pretty well. Specially on the latter the shading looks really natural, like it’s from the lighting!!!
    Foto’s are always difficult to show subtle details…..
    Hope the Gouf likes his vacation 😀

    A quick build while sick in bed. I am not exactly happy with the result, but I learned that I will never use Gundammarker for something serious. After first quiet good results, everything turned into a mess and in the end it also reacted with my acrylic topcoat. I was not far from throwing em into the trash. The kit itself was easy to build and a bit refreshing cause different. I wish Bandai would have used classic polycaps instead of the ones molded in PS.

    Just after getting into Gunpla after my hiatus, thanks to Syd and Gunpla TV I got a first glance at the LED Mirage. He talked a little about it but that was all I knew about FSS until your excellent “unboxing” (because it’s not an unboxing but a tour through the models history and its story for which I’m always grateful!)

    I also didn’t know about the potential problems with older WAVE kits…. As I’m currently using their 0.3/0.5 airbrush I presumed that all their products where topnotch.
    Guessing this won’t be the case with their older kits that are re-printed, that quality controle is better these days.

    The kit turned out great!!! What a hairdryer can do 😉
    Knowing what I know now, it’s even more fun to look at your completed builds. Now I’m looking a the model itself…[Read more]

    Jesus C!!!!
    Has it already come to this……?
    Bandai rehashing the RG line…..?
    That they did it for the MG line, ok….
    That’s why they came up with Build Fighters, to sell “new” kits with minimal effort in therms of making new mold and pumping out new kits, but the RG line at this point?
    Guess the economy in Japan is even worse then I thought…..
    So bye bye MG line (I mean 4 kits a year half of the again, rehashes) and RG line, as this is the same road the MG line has gone up… 🙁

    After a few moths debating, finally got the main colour figured out, now the cleaning, sanding and such can begin. The inner frame is done, added some Builders Parts verniers painted in Alclad Stainless Steel and Alclad Pale Gold. The frame itself is painted with an automotive gunmetal-like colour and has some details painted in with different enamel \"metal\" colours. The colour for the main armour will be a surprise. One hint, it needs a gloss black base ;-)

    Thanks! 😀

    I do prime the frame before painting, using Alclad’s primer. As I dry-fit the joints, I see where a layer of paint might get too thick and sand the parts that would rub against each other. This wat moving the joints won’t scratch the paint up. I used a few primers and this is the only way to making sure there will be no paint rubbing against plastic. I also do this for certain armour panels.

    The verniers are mostly 1/144 ones as strange as it might sound. The Sinanju has tons of little verniers. There are only 4 1/100 on there (the ones in the backpack). The two middle ones on the backpack are the ones that come with the kit. Even the 1/100 verniers where too small.

    I never knew your kits where build in a day…! They always are impressive, but knowing this makes them really go up there!!!!!!!!
    Makes one think what you could achieve with some more…., eh…, dare I say patience?
    Me, I poses the patience of an angel, except when it comes to airbrushing. I can’t wait after priming to paint and after painting to top coat…., but I’m slowly learning to acquire that skill too, LOL

    Concerning the Star Wars debacle between Bandai and Revell is nothing more then Revell being a sore looser and wanting (over the back of builders/fans) to up their sales in the west part of the world.
    One builds what one can get their hands on and to me as a little boy starting to build in the late 80’s that was Revell.

    • teetee, that frame is looking pretty sweet and the contrast with the gold thrusters makes it even better. Do you prime when you paint the internal frames?
      I also got those verniers from the builders parts. Really like where you placed them. Cant wait to see how the whole build turns out.
