  • Question for this community:
    Does anyone know a good way of keeping decals on the kit without using “Top Coat” or “Paint”? Currently, I am using a bit of sticky glue to keep those buggers on and it seems to be working.

    You need take a picture with him doing that for the contest

    This kit is a great build. You are going to enjoy it!

    One more thing I forgot to mention, you might have a lot issues posing this guy when you are doing your photo shoots. You have to be “creative” and find “innovative” way around pose this guy. I leave it to your imagination. ;P.

    Sorry for the late reply as I was busy working out at the gym. My ReZEL is done for the most part. I just need to to some touch up work on it since some of the decal are peeling off. I am actually catching up on building some new kits which came in from HLJ.

    Actually you can find this problem on any kits if you look hard enough, but it’s more common with large solid pieces with little surface sculpting, huge rounded pieces or older kits. This is due to injection technology, placement of the part on the runners, and/or the size of the gates.

    I actually have this kit and ran into the same problem as Tatsuo.

    I have built this kit before and here are some problems I encountered:
    1: The connection from the waist to the hip is not as firm as the other RG kits.
    2: Like Seanzilla said, be careful of the gold plated parts, but also the glossy red parts too. You will see when you do the arms.
    3: The slot connection for the backpack to the body it is not a…[Read more]

    For eligibility, the competition states “The first photo posted should be of the model kit box you intend to build.” This is done so the judges can confirm, what kit you are building and is the available for purchase. This is why they also have at least 4 work in progress photo, as a reference to check if you are not cheating. If anything, the…[Read more]

    The base kit needs to be available on HLJ for purchase.
    Since the listed kits are originally a “P-Bandai” they will be considered illegal because they are not available at HLJ. However, it is not against the rules to alter another kit to resemble a P-Bandai. For example, HG IBO Iok’s Reginlaze is just a recolor of HG IBO Julieta’s Reginlaze. You…[Read more]

    Interesting. It makes sense there are a few gimmicks in the arms since Franky is well know for his weird arm poses, jk.

    I think I can grasp a bit of Mangy’s frustration/confusion. The root of this problem is not the scratch building or using an HLJ kit, etc, but the use of poor diction to describe the “mentioned” judging criteria. The term “completely” was probably implied as 100% of the kit is built from non preexisting parts (i.e. literally building it from the…[Read more]

    • You are the only one who has hit the nail right on the head. You’re exactly right. You understand my frustration and confusion considering I was already thinking of what I would be modeling and painting. It is absolutely semantics but it’s also about being both contradicting and inconsistent within their own rules.

    • I’ve already mentioned this but think of the ridiculousness of not allowing limited edition mail-order Gundam kits.

      Like say from the website Gentei Kits.

      http://genteikits.com/kits/

      These are exclusive Bandai Gundam models that are available only if you order them by mail and available only in Japan on a one by one ordering basis.

    Lol, maybe that is the same feeling you get with the RE line, jk

  • Vin.kam037 posted a new activity comment 3 years, 11 months ago

    Black is the worst since it is the visible from my experience

  • Vin.kam037 posted a new activity comment 3 years, 11 months ago

    Nice man! How was the build?

  • Vin.kam037 posted a new activity comment 3 years, 11 months ago

    I had the same issue with this kit. I painted over it, but cheap and effective way is to use a touch up marker and top coat it. You should get a good result.

    When you said stark jegan, I totally got it.

  • Just finished this guy

    Looks great man. Here is some thing I found out. The slots in the middle the option boosters can work with part D2 25 from the Graze kit. On the Graze, this part to connect with the two ground type thruster. It is a super tight fit, but it will give you a place to put all the spare parts.
