    Sweeet! Excellent job Saz! You should definitely be proud of your work. And those are some cool dynamic poses you pulled off. It definitely looks like it’s in flight.

    So what’s the next project?

  • V0LTES-V01 posted a new activity comment 7 years, 7 months ago

    A very good plan on that masking idea Saz. I wouldn’t want to loose that Gold sheen myself. Man, kits become so delicate after they are painted. It would be safe not to disassemble it again.

    niiice! oh yeah what do you have in store for the color scheme?

  • V0LTES-V01 posted a new activity comment 7 years, 7 months ago

    I use masking tape. It’s very versatile. I cut about 1/2-1 inch of tape and roll it on the skewer. And then just attach the part on it.

    • That doesn’t damage any paint?

      • Not because it acts just like Tacky things, since it’s rolled up you put it either under the Part (like a connector).

        None of the Clips, Tack or tape should touch the surface to be painted.

        • I’ll have to give it a try. My test subject this time around has 3 measly points of articulation (it’s an AG kit), so that should work well.

          • I use it as I go. Alligator clips for the larger pieces, poster tack for the smaller rounded ones, or just sticking the end into a gap, if it fits.

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

    A team-up huh… interesting. I didn’t see that coming. But then again, taking on a gigantic mobile armor could require it. This fight will be quite an epic showdown.

    • A spoiler in just the second trailer, haha. I expect many people to die. It’s interesting that the Banshee Norn doesn’t have a green Psyco frame like the Unicorn. Instead, it has that wierd, really light orange.

    Ever worked with nail clipper? haha, that’s how I started. It cuts clean but a challenge to use because of its design.

    So what side clipper did you end up getting?

  • V0LTES-V01 posted a new activity comment 7 years, 7 months ago

    haha yeah totally busy with all of the extra equipment! I actually thought of getting another shield armor during the time I purchased the haul. But I decided to save it for the Full Armor. But yeah, I’m definitely stoked for the redux project. I’ve learned so much since then. And now with an airbrush in hand, I can refine it.

  • V0LTES-V01 posted a new activity comment 7 years, 7 months ago

    I dig the Norn, especially beacuse of the Armed Armor XC on its back. It’s one wicked cool looking equipment. I’m looking forward on this project man!

    Ahhh Database Error, fancy meeting you again… so soon.. haha.

    • A good deal of weapons there for that Unicorn. That’s going to keep you a busy for a while, haha.

    • Got myself a pair of side clippers this weekend, don’t know how I got by with a pair of small wire cutters all this time.

    Happy Born Day man!

    DX is looking sharp even without the cannons. Looking forward to the full completion.

  • V0LTES-V01 posted a new activity comment 7 years, 10 months ago

    very much looking forward to that Sinanju and Sazabi project!

  • V0LTES-V01 posted a new activity comment 7 years, 10 months ago

    Excellent work with Wing Zero. But where are the epic Buster Rifles??

    • Thanks all, the forums were a big help. V0LTES did catch me on my laziness though… the busters are still skewered, awaiting the day I paint again. I am having quite an issue picking the next kit though so it might be awhile.

  • V0LTES-V01 posted a new activity comment 7 years, 10 months ago

    It was no luck. The Gunpla Gods brought you here LOL. Welcome back man!

    A WTF moment indeed my friend LOL, but in an amusing way. Well it seems that a Mario Kart rally race is up next for the elimination round LOL. I sense a Takeshi’s Castle theme going on LOL.

    • Absolute craziness I say. The head of the company is really messing with things just to get Reiji out of the competition. The next episode will be something interesting.

  • V0LTES-V01 posted an update in the group Group logo of Gundam Forums Gundam Forums 7 years, 11 months ago

    Finally, the new episode of Build Fighters is out and about!

    • Just saw it too and I share the same reaction as the characters. A pretty nice WTF moment when they revealed Sei and Reiji’s battle with the Thai champ. I loved how outrageous it was portrayed, especially the Director’s assistant’s reaction after, haha. The next episode looks like it will have another WTF moment too.

    • That episode was… horrendous. It seems to be going downhill if this is what we can expect, can’t believe I waited nearly two weeks for that episode. I know this series is meant to be taken entirely serious, but somethings don’t belong in gundam (won’t say it to avoid spoilers).

    • The episode was decent. I think it could have done without the whole “itchiness” part. That just seems to have been thrown in there cause the writers couldn’t think of something funny to do with the main story. It could have just been left out IMO.

      As for the baseball game, that was a complete surprise. And a pretty cool one to say the least. I…[Read more]

      • It’s possible, considering they can just use the existing RG Strike frame and change the armor around. That and it’s a main suit, haha. I didn’t think of Sei going with an RG frame, though. Looking back at it again, it did look like the SBS had an inner frame. Unless that was just the Plavsky particles giving that effect.

        It is very unusual…[Read more]

        • High Grade Build Strike (and hence, also the upcoming HGCE Aile Strike) actually does have a certain amount of “inner frame” inside the forearm. Not really made for decoration (as in MG kits) but more as a way to provide the color separation needed for the elbow and seamless assembly for the white parts of the forearm (the white areas of the…[Read more]

    I’m with ya, there are so many kits I want too LOL! But I have to constantly remind myself to chill and just work on one project at a time.

    Looking forward on those Tallgeese progress pictures!

  • V0LTES-V01 posted a new activity comment 7 years, 11 months ago

    LOL, me too, just a few days ago that I discovered them. It was from a member on reddit.com’s Gunpla community. I quickly added it on the kit list after I saw it LOL. No doubt, it’s definitely an awesome display piece; an instant eye catcher. And all the invested effort will be worth it in the end.
