Model Talk / Stores in NYC that sell option parts?
« on: November 04, 2011, 05:18:14 PM »
I just moved here, after so much hiatus in life, and one of the things i'm looking forward to in my stability is to get back to model building. I found a shop that sells kits at reasonable price (when you factor in $10+ shipping from even the cheapest sites and that the sticker price is the price you pay), but they don't sell much in the way of supplies outside of some Tamiya stuff. So does anyone know of anywhere (preferably in Brooklyn or Manhattan) that sells Wave/Kotobukiya/etc parts and scratch building supplies?

Much nicer! Looks like they could learn to take a cue from you.

Very very nice! Love the purple. I'll have to steal it from you.

Very nice. Very nice. Not a fan of the scheme but the customer is always right!

Ah. Well I think my HG 01 is labeled 1/100. The LM kits were smaller, and were at least equivalent to 1/144. I didn't realize Rebuild kits were being made.

Oh God Dynames! How long would you hold? I'm buying a kit from another member in a couple of days so it'd be maybe a week from now before I could buy.

Crescent fresh bro! Is this the 1/144 LM kit?

I think color wise you'll just have to eyeball it. The majority looks like Mr Color's Character Blue, which is a really bold, bright blue.

As for the joints, a lot can be cut at the peg/female end to help. Just be sure to cut little by little and keep checking to make sure it still holds. Of you cut too much it'll be loose abd you'll have to go about fixing that.

I liked it before the shading, but it still looks great. Good pose too.

DrDazzle- Gotta admit I'm not much for b-club stuff.  Don't really know much about it.

Ezechiel- I see what you mean, but I still kinda think once it's painted it'll look good.  At least IMO.  I could make part of the shoulder pauldrons a little more squarish, but I dunno if I will or not.  thanks for your input though.   :razz:

The B-Club kits were conversions for the EW HG kits into the Katoki redesigns. They're long since oop, and these MG's are just better proportioned versions of the Ka designs.

That legitimately looks better than the original prop. They should throw it somewhere on Skywalker Ranch.

Everyone love the Tallgeese! Seems like the 00 universe would've fit the idea just fine. Clean work.

Lord have mercy. Too much. I think being able to assemble that kit is an amazing enough feat.

Pretty neat, not a fan of those feet though lol. I'd love to give that armor style a try on day.

Meh, I dunno, I'm loving these new retoolings of the Wing Suits.  Like take Shenlong here.  I really like that the "dragon heads" are now more weaponized and don't actually look like dragons.  Its making them so much more militaristic and I like that.

I'll be watching this for sure, I'm sure it'll turn out awesome.

These designs are nothing new. They've been around forever, and b-club made conversion kits for them years ago.

REVERSE WASH?! Is this what everyone does to paint the trim on these kits? It looks great.

So man views and no replies!

At first the feet turned me off, but the more I look, the more interesting they seem. I feel though, that the heel needs to be done in the same style, or at least the edges of the modded section need to be beveled to balance the styling out. It seems like an interesting WIP. I hate these new MG Wing kits, I lost all desire to re-do Operation Meteor when they took it further than the Wing Gundam/Zero kits.

Nice...well, that's typical, usually the supplies will cost more than the kit itself...or at least it sometimes does.

Also Kane, I would probably question this. You may be able to save yourself some cash. I rarely spend more on supplies than a kit,unless it's a very cheap kit. 
Jakal,an airbrush will save you way more $ in the long run than using spray cans.

This. Try the Harbor Freight one. For around 100 bucks you can get a ready to go set with the brush/compressor/necessary accessories.

Everyone has their own taste on color schemes, and the GM comes in a lot of flavors so you can pull off a lot.

As for spraying over Tamiya primer, you should be OK. The duplicolor stuff should be lacquer. I know most Tamiya jars are acrylic save for the enamel line, so I assume the primer is too, in which case i'd let it cure 100% first as I am not sure how the lacquer will respond to acrylic base coat.

He is in Holland and more then likely does not have access to the Duplicolor stuff.

Oh, didn't realize. Well he may still be able to find auto spray cans, which are typically high quality.

The FAZZ is a pretty large kit when you really think about it though, so the price is reasonable. Sure it's not as tall as the Sazabi or something, but it's just a bulky kit. I'd really love to build one one day, but with all the expected mods to Sentinel era MS, it'll be a long ways down the road for me.

Glad I wasn't there to see the masking needed. Nice work.
