These are absolutely stunning. They should put you to work on the next line of Canti PVC figures.

Kit Specifics / 1/100 NG Exia Painting
« on: August 04, 2012, 07:39:31 PM »
Tried looking around, so I am sorry if this has been asked and I missed it. I have been able to find ways around most of the issues i've encountered that would make painting this kit a pain, but I am kind of stumped now. The knee joint is just horrible. Once assembled the thigh and joint are stuck. Additionally, the lower leg has that wacky design, and near as I can tell, there is no way to separate the white calf pieces from the core of the leg and have them glued/puttied/etc. Has anyone found any ways around this stuff, or should I just get ready to do a lot of masking? Thanks guys.

Really neat concept. I feel like the heat rod parts used to connect the overhead fang-doodle seem kind of skinny, but you did really great with all the mods and paint. It's very clean and well thought out.

Cool to see this kit done, as it doesn't seem very popular. It looks nice, but I think with a better setup we could see more detail!

That is a beautiful green, can't wait to see the whole scheme on the completed kit.

Ultimately anything is possible, but generally I think Bandai tends to stick to either kits produced for a currently running series, kits which are in high demand (take the recent EW/Ka. Wing kits, I think a lot of people were waiting for the whole Op. Meteor team for some time), and rehashes (clear kits, recolors, 2.0's etc).

Very interesting. It feels very Terminator, looks nice.

No images in this post, but I am still working through it.

Getting frustrated with the priming process. I'm not happy with the model masters acrylic primer right now. I can't get it to spray right. It levels nice, but doesn't cover that well. Just needs to be darker.

It's also clogging up, even with some retarder added.

I plan to go back to my regular gray rattlecans from walmart.

I have also realized that I suck as getting rid of seams, but I have a new tool to help with that.

I normally use bondo for the seams, but it seems to shrink on me. I did pick up some of the liquid green stuff from games workshop.

It is a 2 part epoxy in a semi liquid form that is water soluble. You just paint it on.

Personally i've never liked the MM acrylics. They didn't seem better than their run of the mil acrylics. I think you'd be better off with Tamiya or MM enamel.

The kit is the the original version (1996) not the rebuild or newer models;
I did not modify the kit in any major way just rivet holes.

Just curious. I do like the changes you've made though.

You could make a fortune kitting that, or at least selling painted recasts.

Is this one of the kits release for the Rebuild series or did you modify it?

Your stuff gets more and more lifelike every time. Museum quality. It's amazing to look at the first kits you posted, then to compare them to your recent works.

I got a dremel for 8 bucks and I could not believe it. I went around looking for stuff to dremel. I know someone else recently did a MF with some LED/fiber optic work, so if you need help you could check out his WIP. Can't wait to see the turnout.

Truck liner? That's pretty crafty. Did you do anything besides spray it on? It looks like a really simple way to texturize and it came out great.

The completed kits don't look much different outside of color schemes, and the runners don't seem any different to me.

Model Talk / "New" Evangelion Kits?
« on: January 02, 2012, 01:57:56 AM »
I was on Hobby Search looking around, and I saw these. They're obviously newly manufactured for the film remakes. The kits have new weapons and feature new color schemes and some slight changes to some designs, and a heftier price tag (50 bucks for unit 02?). The thing is though, it looks to me like these are no different than the LMHG kits they put out, just with some new parts. I noticed the arms seem to be made in exactly the same way, which is a bummer. Can anyone confirm if these are any different than the old kits, or if they're just re-releases with some new gimmicks?

This is really nice for sure, great execution. The Nemo though? Just seems too high tech/spacey for such a gritty, real world dio.

Should get someone to move this to the completed section. I like the silver on the Zeon emblem. Much nicer than the yellow.

Well executed no doubt, but the shading is a bit heavy for my tastes. Like the base too.

I think for most people, the HFT airbrush has proven to be a competent cheap route for those who can't afford some higher end brushes.
