I've got a gouf custom, Rozen Zulu, and a zaku IIF2 to snap build. I have my other zaku IIF2(pictured in the OP actually) pickling so I can later get that paint off and try again(I have an airbrush now so hopefully I won't muck it up as bad). I need an extra shield for the Waff sniper joe conversion and it looks like I'll need to order another kit to get it so that project will have to wait.

I got all the tools for kit painting but so far I've just done a lot of snap building so it may be time to start going back and giving my kits the proper treatment.

Repost from previous thread

Okay, could someone explain why pics 2 and 3 look so much different in terms of reflectivity? I used the same paint, topcoat, and thinned the top coat the same, and applied it using the same airbrush in similar application and conditions and yet they turned out different. Could there be any reason for this? Besides shit luck that is. Also rate the rest of it. I know the yellow parts are pretty poorly painted, especially the attempts to fill in the black areas, but my masking skills are not the greatest. Also the decals could have been applied better (and I completely forgot about the concept of mark setter).

while I agree the Super Famicom ground type is the weakest of this group of customs (opting for painted on buttons rather than sculpted like the rest of them) I will say the RX-78 Famicom does look much cleaner (aside from the text) with custom molded details on the shield and accuracy to console details.

The Genesis/Megadrive hi-mock has slightly cleaner text and more custom sculpted bits on the forearms than any of the others in this group. The Game Boy Balls have he cleanest, text (though that's not saying much) custom molded buttons and power light, clean details, even custom screenshots used in the screen/window for extra effect.

probably the best overall is the Saturn Kampfer. very clean paint, no text, custom molded details on the forearms, the disk chain mines are a little sloppy but I can slightly overlook that as it's probably just meant to be "generic Saturn disks" rather than specific games.and to that end it works.

overall I give these a 6/10, the custom sculpted detailing and attempt for accuracy to the consoles are what I liked about these. these probably wouldn't win any competition by a long shot without, like you said, custom water slides or masking/spray paint stencils for the text to make the text look much cleaner and crisper but if these were done just for personal enjoyment of doing it then these are passable for a personal collection.

Was halfway through priming this Hyakuri for a repaint when I stumbled upon an old trashed Evangelion 01 LMHG kit from like 1997.

I cut, filed, sanded and re-purposed the neck piece as a new head and the bazooka as a fixed gun because I have an unhealthy obsession with mechs with oversize weapons, especially fixed artillery/cannons.

The neck had a ball joint that fit just perfectly in the Hyakuri's neck socket and the bazooka even fit snugly into the backpack with no need for filing/cutting, but I will fix it down properly when it's painted, probably via rods through the little expansion slots in the top of the backpack.

Update: terrible news, even months of soaking wasn't enough to weaken the paint. The gold and purple comes off with a stiff toothbrush but the black won't budge.

 No.19486

Sanding seems like the best option, even if it's just to make for a rough surface since the black already acts as a base colour.

That is, if you're just redoing the same colour scheme and not something entirely different.

I gotta say it's way better than I thought it would be.

Rear thrusters are removed because they're a bitch to get out and I don't want to damage them in the process.

The legs are from the Kotobukiya Raging Booster and allow the thing to actually stand upright with no support when stretched out, even with all the added weight on the backpack.

I fucking sorted by reply count instead of bump. Fuck.Anyways, this is not related to gunpla but more towards using paints on different surfaces. Would repainting this metal piece with clear coat red retain the metallic feel? I got an airbrush so figured why not but I don't know wether spraying some Tamiya Clear Red would get rid of it's metallic feel.

Also, what paint is good for spraying metal parts in general like aftermarket parts for plamo? I know Hotwheel hobbyist use a different type of paint to retain their metallic feel but what is it actually? It's not acryllic right since it would create a more plastic-y feel?

I was actually pretty happy. I used it and the RD as a reference. The HG was really important for making the ankles on the MG work.

I'm working on an HG Leo sniper now, and I actually took the butt design I used on the MG and scaled it down for the HG, so it's kind of a poetic justice.

Just finished up the RG 00 Raiser competition piece. One of the pieces on the foot broke off and not even all the glue in the world could put it back together… so I will need to either buy another of the same kit to get the one replacement part, or just submit it without the broken piece and hope nobody notices.

Plotting out my next project; a kitbash of the Byakki from Ring of Red.

Did a rough draft of what it's gonna look like.

The main body is a HG RGM-79 that's gonna get plaplated to hell and back (if anyone can suggest a better base kit, please do).

Head is from the Graze Custom with some shit chopped off and will probably add other detail shit on.

Feet are modified from the ugly-ass Galbaldy Rebake.

The shoulder will either be a zaku shield or I'll just plaplate it.

As for the cannon, it's based on a King Tiger, so I will have to see if I'm willing to pay out the ass for a kit just to use the gun for the kitbash.

Maybe I can use the de-gunned hull of the tank in a diorama or something.

See, this is the shitty attitude that negates the entire point of group builds!

They don't have to be GBWC masterpieces (if you can call grebble piles masterpieces), they barely even have to be considered ART, but the idea is to DO something!

That's why I enter, I know I don't have the scratch building or even painting skills to bring most of my concepts to reality, but creating something is at least better than wallowing in nothingness!

I'm against seam wielding if only because:

>Your idea of a "build" is just slapping build fighters weapons on straight built kits

It locks kits together, making them even harder to kitbash with later,

>Just don't be surprised when you post lazy shit and people mock you for it.

I hope so.

Making the Gaplant's shoulders fit onto the Hazel's backpack and then mounting the psyco's arms on the shoulders probably won't be too challenging, but what will be is modding the Hazel's torso with plaplate because the base suit of that pic is the Hazel Owsla which there isn't a kit of because Bandai hates AoZ.

I didn't realize Tallgeese had boosters like that, those pods are typically shown closed up. I suddenly like it a lot more now.

So I've been wondering. Is there a way to mold clear pieces like you do with regular pieces using bluestuff? My problem is that almost all kits have this colored visor sith them and rarely do they have a uncolored see through visor. I don't like having to paint my visors another color.

An example is the Jegan, if I want to scratch build the ECOAS version while keeping the transparent visor transparent, it would look way off. It pisses me off so much.

I dont see why you couldn't use clear resin to make the piece.

Clear resin using bluestuff? Wont that spill everywhere?

Use a piece of runner to make a pour channel. You can use oyumaru to do pour molds, its watertight.


 No.20143

>oyumaru

How is Oyumaru different from bluestuff? Also any decent guides on making pourmolds without any bubbles? I'd imaging using runners would make the hole too small for the resin to flow in without creating an airpocket.

It's the same thing. The stuff is reusable and resin is dirt cheap so I'm just going to advise you to try it out until it works.

Resin casting is no where near as daunting as people seem to think it is. Have some fun with it.

It's on a mile long to-do list. I'd have to paint the kit afterwards.

Kids who want to paint their first kit think that just because there are a bunch of panel lines and part separation, you have to paint each one a different colour.

Also what the fuck is the pose on the last one.
