    I really need to get the Alto Yellow. My orange close combat upgrade set just didn't work out on Alto Blue but on Yellow it looks great.

    And I would like to get some customize parts BUT god knows I have a large enough Gunpla backlog...

    I want to get the grey Alto for the white secondary armour so I can make a proper yellow and white Alto.

    Ahhhhhhh I have such big plans for 30MM I hardly even own any yet!

    I really wanted to see how many things I could load into the Alto like this. Unfortunately I just ran out of things to give it.

    I've seen those Unofficial Clones but never thought to try one, tempted once to get the Barbatos Type 6.

    About the plastic quality, what's it like? Matte standard or did it try to do the gloss finish as the original kit?

    I suckered myself into getting the official Wing EW when it was announced, it's one of my favorite eccentric Katoki redesigns I'll build in just about any Grade.

    Seeing your post gave me the idea to open the Wing's box for a bit. Couple of things stirred my curiosity like seeing if that mix of gray paint I came up with for the Furai Models is a good match. Yes by the way, more on that later. And because I was looking at more of the God Gundam reviews, and felt I needed to build some kind of HiRM.
    Not sure how I feel about it, but I'm not compelled to finish Wing Zero right now.

    20191104_190549.jpg

    The frame on Wing Zero kept cracking apart so it's hard to feel enthused about working on it. So I haven't done anything to the Wing's skeleton except the preliminary disassembly and some panel detailing on the exposes joints..
    My chief grievance, I hate the hands.

    The tedious start , sorting what I need from the duplicate runners.. surplus in the pile to the left, the proper colors above the manual.

    You can see on the skirt plates I started with some panel accent, which I won't use on the inner frame parts, for obvious abs safety concerns.

    20191104_204635.jpg

    One thing caught my attention is the manual suggests which color of the duplicate parts to use, but I know this Wing is meant to have the two toned blue on white skirts in the front and back. So, I opted to make it my own way.

    all parts have been snapped. gotta detail it now. Dark Matter Exia is next, followed by Avalanche Exia. Virtue's cannon effects are simply its own beam sabers taped to the inside of the rails.

    just waiting for another green base and for the inevitable MG Kyrios announcement.

    Dope pics, what do you use for your background? It reminds me of Hacchaka and I've been wondering about that marble look for a while.

    Hearsay's not easy to follow sometimes but this comes from someone I can trust.
    According to my friend Val, she's an Aussie Modeler I know from G+/MeWe who spends most of her Gunpla money on Third Party kits, Dragon Momoko's back under a number of different names: MJH, Future Model and are even making a resurgence AS Dragon Momoko. According to New Gundam Central, they were coming back and reissuing their Launcher/Sword Strike Gundams and the Testament. They're entirely original molds so I suppose it means Bandai only shut down the one arm of the company who were lifting parts straight from Bandai's molds.
    When she sent me the update from NGC about those reissued kits, I put in an order for a Sword Striker.

    Thanks to this conversation, I just checked the site for the first time in two weeks after I never got a notice in my mailbox since I put in the Preorder, but apparently it shipped out ..two weeks ago. Though I don't know about that, because they listed the kits being released at the end of October and the 4PX tracking page can't find the tracking number.

    Watch the beginning of MechaGaisouku's video about the original 30MM releases. These things can carry STUPID amounts of attachments.

    @Hadlen_Weltall good to know Testament is available again. Kind of want to paint one titans colors for shits and giggles. Think Astray Outer Frame will pop up again too?

    Thanks! It's just a roll of counter top vinyl I got from the dollar store that I put onto a poster paper. I got the idea from the Japanese toy bloggers.

    Also making progress on my SD Sangoku Soketsuden Dynames:

    I'm so behind.

    So far I have TallgeeseIII, Dynames, Altron, Astray Red, Kshatriya, Strike Rouge, Barbatos AND Sinanju totally unbuilt. I also have yet to paint Wing, and Astray Gold is still in pieces.

    Shrug? We'll just have to wait and see. Could probably find one on Ebay but at a premium price. Otherwise keep your eyes on gundammodelcenter.com for whatever comes out.

    Sooo, I recently mentioned a desert sniper Jesta I was making but I neglected to mention this would be version 2.0... so for funsies, I took photos of the old and new arm together. The old one is to the left, new one to the right.... I do NOT remember how to use rattlecans....:oops:  IMG_20191106_010308.jpg IMG_20191106_010259.jpg IMG_20191106_010246.jpg

    The 2.0 is looking nice.. and you can probably salvage the original if you strip the paint off. Strip the Mobile Suit to its bare frame and Soak the armor in Super Clean and run it through an UltraSonic Cleaner, but I would let it marinate in 100% concentration a few days to help solubilize it.

    Back to the world of handbrushing, I hit the painted skirts with a little Pledge and will have to hit it a few more times to really put the glossy shine to match the plastic again.

    Finally got my ebay preorder MSD Zaku Cannon delivered, and it looks like someone punted the damn thing onto my porch. The damage is just bending and runners snapping at where different colors meet, but holy hell.

    The SDSK Barbatos is a really stupid kit. It has a black runner where every single part on it should be blue. Why the hell wasn't it just moulded in blue?
