Model Talk / Favorite Build?
« on: October 01, 2006, 05:21:39 PM »
As far as Gunpla I would have to say it's a toss up betreen the MkII Ver 2.0 and my Pg Strike with the Aile strike pack Both OOB

But as of right now I would have to say my Zoid/ Microman Hybrid as I'm pinting it with a custom pant scheme

Model In-Progress / microman/zoid custom
« on: October 01, 2006, 04:38:30 PM »
Hey all Update!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have figured that I will have to repaint the whole feaking zoid but I had to start with the micro.I dechromed the head and armor to make way for a custom paint job!

I used Liquid Drano and a small container and left the part in overnight.
Aside from the stink and hazard of messing with an organic dissolver this stuff will eat chrome off with a quickness!!!! (oh and not hurt the plastic)

here's some more pics of the micro dechromed and some of the head and how cool it looks without all the chromeness

hello all
well I got the bug again and decited to merge a micro and zoid together once more!
this time it's for the evil side and my first time using the new 03 body styles then from the 99/00 style these are my in prog pics, as I have to paint and modify more parts
but this is the start  It's a micro Scol acroyear and a  Hel Digunner zoid(Iguana Type) I started by sawing off the legs and hip joints for Scol then cut away the connect point for the multi-gun on the HD's back

the bits are two suspension struts from a sherman tank kit and some parts cut off from warhammer 40K guns, cut to fit and glued to some plasic stock then to eachother to form a brace for the hips and lower groin area to rest in
here's a view of the struts

the rest of the pics are just porgress pics as I slowly build it up.
I will be adding more stuf and repainting the whole thing
with weathering hope you enjoyed

hello all
in my made quest to build evey MG gundam produced I'm finding that I'm more and more in need or a silver ink pen to do the darker armor parts of say a Rick Dais or a Titans MK II

I use a 005 micron ink pen to do all my pannel lines and was wondering if anyone knew of a small pen that came in silver like that
thanks and keep up the good work guy's

Kit Specifics / 1/100 scale Vs Railway figures
« on: December 27, 2005, 09:27:33 PM »
I have found thaat buildings done in HO scale is about right
HO= 87th scale
The figures you get in the MG kit are about shoulder hight to true HO figures
Watch out for this, Some companys play fast and loose with scale figures
Rule of thumb the cheaper the figures the bigger the figures it in scale

but in a few ideas I have for diorama's I'll be using HO scale buildings
hope that helps


ps if you use 144 scale gundams use N scale buildings and figures

Assembly/Scratchbuilding / looking for workable plastic to make lightning
« on: October 27, 2005, 09:31:11 AM »
hello I'm back
here are the completed test on an electrical arc
I have to thank Foo yet again for suggesting the Gel meddium it's incredable.
I had a hard time figuring out how to strengthen the gel to stand it up
I used some plastruct fiber optic and splapped the gel on it
took a while but I got it the way I liked it  hope you do to

Assembly/Scratchbuilding / looking for workable plastic to make lightning
« on: October 08, 2005, 12:30:40 PM »
I've been experimenting with different mediums. I like the gel med as a base for exploding energy and the water effects as a ropy energy look but I need some thing that will make the med to thin arks and that will hold their weight
I tried the carving of the styrene but i'm more of a 3D modeler and like to sculpt as I do along. I'm thinking of getting clear  small acrylic rods from plasctruct and using them as the base and then adding the medium to it. I found the new paint at our local JO ANN Fabrics I'm going to try to put it through an air brush but the name brand escapes me but the name of the paint is Halo blue green, I my use that as the all around paint then the spray can purple to  green.

I have to get the G-gundam back together but that will be easy and if not I'll get another the base will be the hard part and I've been looking for the palm trees big enough to hide a LED but small enough to look scale

other then that I've got kind of taken a break as I just got through a local model competition and won 1st, 2nd and 3rd in my group and best over all in Sci fi class
hellish to say the least

if anyone has suggestions I'm all ears as this may turn out to be a little  to much for me


Painting/Priming / Making Tamiya Metallic?
« on: September 13, 2005, 11:50:58 AM »
I have two cent to add to the pearl part of the question

I have a friend that works in an auto body shop and he got hold of some real crushed pearl dust that they mix in their clear coat

I've done some experimenting and have found if you want a good look to your paint using pearl  use the same color pearl as the paint or the direct opposite color pearl.
blue works wonderfully on the white grey of the 78 series gundams, green on the z'gok's and green zakus and copper for the red gunncannons and zakus.

you only need a little (I use 4 tamiya stirrer spoon fulls in a acrylic top coat small airbrush bottle though I think I'm going to switch to future floor polish soon.

well I'm back with one more small question
first off the gell medium will work but the act of carving the plastic and placing the gel med is a pain  
but hard work is it's own reward

now the question

would woodland senics realistic  water or EZ water  work as a semi workable/flexable medium to try on the energy arcs.


Model In-Progress / Inner working of the MG ball
« on: August 26, 2005, 02:13:08 AM »
hello all
I just have to put some finishing touches on this ball and I'll be done
there's a little clean up painting and some going over but all in all the is was a pratice in hand painting metallics(as a friend of mine said it could not be done) I will say brush painting metalics is a pain in the ass
But I found sone Bronze by golden . the darker silver is velajo(sp) aged chain mail
and the silver on the web is from a silver metalic marker I bought at wally world
oh yea the copper was from golden and I used gun metal from Model master's

hope you guy's like it

and for those of keen eye the last picture in the lower left(facing) the darker area is battle bamage as the primer spit these huge bubbles all over the top portion of the ball
so I made it bubbled/ dmaged parts I think it added to the model.
I wish I could do the color change of heted metal by hand brushing
 ok it's time for bed
please feed back is much needed as this piece and the other ball mod are oing into a model competition in OCT

Thanks A lot Foo!!!!
That was the best advive I have ever got.
now to make it a reality

I also forgot to mention I'm going to paint the G-Gundam in darker colores (I was thinking Poly-chromatic purple to green and air brush or hand paint circuitry paterns on the armor and place Blacklight LED in hidden places to shine on the model to make the lightning and circuitry glow in normal light

I'll post pics when I get it going
thanks again

hey guys
I was hopping with all the great minds here that some one could point me in the right direction

I'm looking for a plastic that I can make into lightning/enegy arcs

the stuf I'm looking for is the same stuff that the STAR WARS figures have that simulate energy arks across droids.

I'm in the process of making a the God Gundam dio and want arks that run all over the arms and legs and run to the ground

but I have had no luck  trying to find the type of plastic or if I can sculpt or mold the peices.

sorry if this is a bit vague, I'm typing this as I have one foot out the door to work
