Dioramas / Need some Help with a diorama...
« on: June 12, 2006, 07:29:36 AM »
Hey all...

So I'm in a little dilemma here. I've just finished a 1/144 Rx-121 Titans Custom (Hazel) and the pose I'm thinking of is him standing with his back to a wall reloading his grenade launcher. It sounded pretty good on paper (was going to somehow make little bricks and build a wall out of them) until I remembered that Gundam’s are HUGE and walls are not :(

Now I'm hoping someone has a great idea of some sort of object that my Hazel can have his back to (a building maybe but I think I'm too new to kits to build a good looking skyscraper, just end my making the build look worse).

Thanks!

Tools / Tamiya Files
« on: June 03, 2006, 10:50:04 PM »
Hey guys.

I'm soooo sick of making and destroying sanding sticks that I have been tempted by Tamiya's range of metal files. Has anyone had any expereinces with these (good or bad)?

Thanks!!!

Model In-Progress / 1/100 MG MSM-07 Z'Gok
« on: May 28, 2006, 07:22:21 AM »
Hey all!

Ever since I saw FF Z'Gok I've been itching to do one and so, when I was at my Gundam shop yesterday I spotted one in a corner under a few boxes and decided that now was as good a time as any.

This is only my second Gundam and my first MG unit so I'm going to be very tedious with my posts (detail wise) so that all the pro's can offer up their critic  :)

Washed the kit off with dish washing liquid this afternoon and started pre-assembly. My sanding skills are still shocking! Whenever I sand a nub the whole edge where the nub is gains a slight downward angle  :( Also messed up on the head's internal skeleton. Z'Gok has these 5 round pieces that slot into holes. I cut the pegs on all of them but when I had already fit the first one, I checked if could remove it. I could not so I'll be painting the rest of the pieces before I fit them. The vents on the chest also gave me some trouble (as I was not reading the manual properly :p ) but it came together and looks awesome.

Anyways, thats all I've done today. Try and get some pics up later when I can get a better camera.

Oh yeah here is the colour scheme I was thinking of:



Cheers

Assembly/Scratchbuilding / Post priming puttying
« on: May 15, 2006, 11:08:27 AM »
Hi

So I've read on a lot of tutorials that its recomended to prime after you fix any seam on a model so that you can see if you fixed it correctly. I did this on the Musha SD that I'm currently busy with ( mind you I think I fixed seams on every piece :shock: ) and primed the whole lot. Now as I suspected there are seams that showed up like day light after the priming, but I dont know what the best method of handling them is...

So do I putty the post-primer seams, sand and then re-primer, do I putty, sand and not primer again, do I use Tamiya Thin Cement again on the seam, sand and primer/not primer, do I fall to my knees and cry huge anime tears...

Thanks :P

JM
