    Not gonna lie... that specific super attack move of 00 Sky where he kicks the mini-kapool like a football for a power-charged attack always seems pretty silly and ridiculous, even within the world of GBN that Build Divers (And its better sequel) takes place.

    Is it wrong for me to think it's odd they don't have the Hyper Mega Launcher I just found at USAGS?

    ...which by the way, bought. My RG Nu Gundam gets HWS and Double Fin Funnel Unit, and the Hi-Nu I don't have yet needs a gun rack.

    I assume I they don’t have any stock yet. I don’t think Gundam Central puts up any preorders. The Super Gundam seems to be in stock on their shop as of now, right?

    Correct, seems to be about 50 euros shipped for me in the Netherlands.

    Its light hearted fun, plus the SD and cutesy kits usually operate differently and the OO Sky is basically a super robot so ridiculous moves are passable.

    I wasn't sure what their policy was. The closest thing to a preorder they have is the "Coming soon" banner at the top of the front page. I've only gone to Gundam Central for things that I just discover existed when they were released.

    New guy helping me do September’s sales tax/ QuickBooks.

    Speaking of “Nu”, Mg Nu Gundam Ver Ka will be her this week (oh I for got to mention ordered a Nu Gundam off Amazon. Had some Gift cards from people that can’t make it to the wedding, so yay Free Gundams). Sandrock will be here this too. Now just got to figure out which to do next. RG Exia, HG Marsfour, HG Barbatos 1st form, or mg dx.

    Might just hit my pen and watch Evil Dead II.

    Just remember "no carrots" when tallying Gunpla related expenses that are tax deductable as a business investment.

    Duly noted good sir.

    And incase anyone is wondering. I have chosen to hit the pen, watch Evil Dead II with the future misses and start on Marsfour. Today’s my Saturday night so gotta live it up before the middle age sets in.

    You'll have better luck than I have trying to use my Agricultural Tax Exemption to skirt shipping and sales tax on supplies.. I even show pictures of the Moobile Sweeties to prove I'm buying Gunpla Weapon packs for them.

    My MS-X04-F2 Jesta needs extra support because she's got a new calf in development.

    *get ready everyone, here they come.

    20210923_195834.jpg

    I'm kind of hoping for a Hardy(Gun) or a Zirah.
    Sire is MBS-84- F2 Goldo under the alias of first mate Wiggles the Char(gaur) Clone. ...he's literally a 1:100 scale replica of his father.

    20211003_155421.jpg

    I should also mention his *other nickname is Mr. Shoot-to-Kill but this isn't the "GODANNAR!!" Thread.
    You all will know why.

    Also, seeing how the latest Calf of his was just born inherited his (and her mother's) Pinzgauer - Exclusive Colored Version milksplash patterns.

    The NON-SCALE V-Series Model, "Ova" has a skull squadron marking.

    20211004_153633.jpg

    This means Jesta is the testbed for a Master Grade Silhouette Formula to Crossbone generation!

    In the main herd deployment, I'm counting on Ms-14-F1 Jegan to produce the Gustav. *because in Bulltorchika's Calving and novel version of Hathaway's Milksplash *Pinzgauer reference!!* there was no Jesta in between development cycles .

    20210923_154349.jpg

    Jegan has a hi boney structure and she fleshes up well to a full armor when she's not under stress. now her current offshoot, MS-X51-F2 Zeta is fully weaned and a feedlot diva.
    *no current picture on hand at moment, you could say it's a Side Story for another day.


    Then there's MS-35-F1....

    20210926_155704.jpg

    Miss Sazabi owes me a Penelope. She's robust, but she's got a streak of under-developing. Her Nu and Nightingale were like that new Gundam toyline that shall not be named... and I had to bury the Build-A-Figure which was Sazabi's last calf.


    .... no current picture of Jupiter Calf Fleet Ms-C56-F2 Qubeley but she's doing fine. She just keeps her distance.

    And I'm done!!
    Play us out MS-X54-F2 Nemo!



    *DOOM MUSIC*

    20210924_152345.jpg

    Back to the Building of Real Gunpla.

    -
    Sentinel reference!

    The MkV's bellbottom flairs are open to the back side and from below. So, I'm really giving this kit the full undercoating but keeping it within the lines of the parts that fill in the undersides.

    20211004_112645.jpg

    Then two uninterrupted hours of a groove, and some mistakes to touch up later...

    20211004_235428.jpg

    Still need to fill in the back half of the leg panels and edging.

    Started the GM Sniper II White Dingo and I didnt know it but this kit is seam line hell.

    - ALL the weapons have seam lines and it comes with like 5-6 weapons.
    - The sensor thing or whatever its called on the side of the head has a seam line.
    - The ankle guard has a horrible seam line that needs to be fixed.

    Had I known this I probably wouldve waited on building this kit :lol

    Finished painting the frame yesterday. Today I move onto the white and blue parts.

    My train of thought at 2AM:

    "I'll look at more sample build pictures of the MkV, get some more ideas on painting it."
    *Looks at pictures of the missile pods, seeing the lines engraved between the individual hatches linked together*

    "...Could I.. cut that? ... I don't know, I don't want to screw this up..."

    *A few hours later....*

    20211005_151433.jpg

    I can only fail at this once... Just be very careful. Don't force the saw down, just run the blade down the molded lines in long steady strokes...

    ... this is the part where my friends both said "Giggity."

    20211005_170329.jpg

    Cutting through from the back, seeing the lines break along into edge of flashing.

    20211005_170329.jpg

    One more cut and a flex later...

    20211005_170855.jpg

    That's one!! Go for one more before I have to close up the shop for a bit?

    20211005_172335.jpg

    That's two!!! I'll finish the other two in a little while!

    Anyone who has handled the Wing suits from Gundam Universe, how are they in hand?

    Man, had to cancel a bunch of pre/backorders on HLJ. Medical expenses are piling up, and since I don't yet know what's going to be covered I moved my payment method over to Paypal and off my credit card just in case. Only problem is that unlike a CC I can't afford things randomly coming in stock lest I don't have money in that account at the moment, but it is what it is. Kept FRS OOO, MG Virtue, the 30MM head set, and the only backorders I left were the MG X and HG Helmwige Reincar. The latter of which seems like it'll never happen what with the Gunpla shortages, which sucks because I need it to finish the third and final main mech of my story. (which I've started uploading online finally, though I don't have many reads yet)

    This plastic shortage sucks. Normally I wouldn't even have half that stuff preordered since it was mostly HGs and 30MM I cancelled, but Gunpla/models have now also become this terribly unfun "gotta buy it immediately or you'll miss out" hobby like Transformers. Gunpla was always so relaxing because, barring exclusives, there was never really any "pressure." :( 

    What is the little picture of the Nu Gundam's face pointing out?

    I only have the Deathscythe, and IMO it's a very solid figure if a little bland. It's not as dynamic or posable as a Robot Damashii, but it's not as limited as an old MSIA. It's kind of like the exact halfway point, marred only by the lack of clear plastic.
