For those new to gunpla/plamo or even just new to this thread; please read the guide. Please read it before asking questions, as there is a chance it has already been answered there.

For those unfamiliar, "plamo" is a shortened form of "plastic model". If it's made of plastic, someone can probably help you here!
If you're new, you're gonna fuck up. Don't worry! If you're experienced, don't make the new people worry!

>Why won't anyone answer my question?
Try being specific, especially about your materials and process. Post pictures whenever possible; even if the kit/part looks bad, you are more likely to get help posting pictures.

Yeah, they're pretty good. Some glue needed for the Barbatos Lupus' skirts and some other parts, but otherwise they're nice MG-Lite kits like the RE/100. They're not as solid as MGs and don't have the same array of gimmicks, but well worth a cop anyway.

Testors enamel is in general, a low quality paint compared to what you can get elsewhere. I switched from Testors to Vallejo (acryllic, but I'm not sure on a good enamel replacement) and the difference in color quality and paint quality is night and day. Not to mention, enamel thinner is notoriously bad for plastic.

Both the RG Amatsu Mina and RG Unicorn look great, they're both excellent RGs. You really can't go wrong if you like how either of them look. If the RG Unicorn isn't an option right now, I wouldn't even bother getting the HGUC Unicorn.

HGUC Unicorn.

RGs are trash though.

Don't troll him like this, the difference between the HG Unicorn and the RG Unicorn is night and day. While you can argue some of the RGs suffer from instability and "handgrenading" we've already seen the Unicorn doesn't have any of the RG flaws that people are wary of.

Do you just want him to suffer or something?

I don't need arguments, it's truth.
But go on then, enjoy wasting money on a RG that a HG can easily copy.
>>
>>15772032
Make sure the hip is pushed all the way in, and don't try twisting the hip forwards or backwards with the joint in the waist angled down. It might be better to cement the parts so the swing down mechanism doesn't swing down
>>

Ian is rather large as far as Youtubers go and I'd argue he's the kind of content you could expect a 4chan user to know about.

So yeah, a lot of us were kind of stunned over the results and went over to ask how the judges do their scores.

Essentially what happened is the concept portion of the 3 criteria and the guest judge from SUNRISE (Not Bandai) was Hideyuki Tomioka, who is not a modeler and was on a tight schedule. From what I understand, he basically showed up, looked at each kit for about 5 seconds, and gave a bunch of points to the ones he thought were coolest right off the bat rather than any that were particularly well done, and his scores heavily swayed the results.

Astaroth guy got robbed.The mg god gundam was nice too. The guy actually used a freedom frame for most of it and modded the god gundam armor around it.

That looks really badly done, anon. The paint is splotchy and messy, not to mention its bleeding everywhere. Next time, to improve, use masking tape to keep the paint in the area you want it to be in. Also, make sure you follow proper painting procedure such as thinning the paint, painting in multiple thin coats, waiting for each coat to dry before you go onto the next.
>>
>>15772271
>he's the kind of content you could expect a 4chan user to know about
Not on any of the boards I go on. The ones that I frequent don't really care/are averse to eceleb shenanigans. Unless it's mourning Grumpy Jii-san /a/ will tell you to fuck right off, especially if you bring up Digibro or other normalfag "anime reviewer." /tg/''s amalgamation of different subgroups (albeit often with a lots of overlap between fans) means that while one youtube channel can grow popular with a certain group (Critical Role threads), they don't have a large influence on the board's general culture. Same for /toy/; different groups have different famous youtubers (Nerf reviewers cover entirely different subject material than Beyblade reviewers, for example), but no single one is big enough that you can expect everyone on /toy/ to know them. And since /m/ stuff is rather niche, most of the time I see anyone talking about youtubers here it's usually /gpg/ talking about Gunpla reviewers, or someone trying to get the board riled up over a video that's "Lucky Star Getter"-levels of uninformed.

I picked up some sprat paints along with the model but I don't have a good idea on how to do this. I would like to get the gold and the black to be more vibrant and pop more. How should I paint the runners? Do I need to hang it up to dry, and how long does it take?
>>
>>15773463
>>15773473

You need a can of primer and to read the guide in the OP. Your paints are fine but you need primer. Don't paint on the runners.
>>
>>15773473
>Painting on the runners
dude no
>>
>>15773481

How should I paint it then, if not on the runners?
>>
>>15773473
Don't paint the runners. Cut everything off first, otherwise you just wind up painting it again because you have to cut away the plastic at the gate marks.

Cut out the pieces
Organize them by what color you want to paint them
Put them on alligator clips
Prime them with your primer of choice (Tamiya works great)
Let them dry for a day or so
Paint them
Let them dry/cure
Either topcoat now or snap then topcoat
>>
>>15771600
they are fine for small details and for black gloss backings in a airbrush when thinned but otherwise I try not to use them
>>
>>15773473
Painting on runners is something you do for models tanks for the roadwheels and shit, don't use that technique for gunpla. you wanna assemble paint different assembled portions.

Are the "hands" painted in metallic paint or is it just black with some drybrushed metal on the edges?
>>
>>15773596
No, the hands/tubing/joints are Tamiya Gunmetal, only the feet, the crotch thruster and chest are black.

I'm asking WHY do they give more greeble more points? It doesn't look good, and the international judges aren't so easily swayed by useless greeble.

That Astaroth could easily place in a Jap competition and yet it didn't in an American one because it's not ugly and busy enough.

Do they think greeble = skill? Because that's not how it works.

Cluster fuck models win this shit all the time because they take more skill the build. The problem is they take less skill to paint then a nicely done kit. We end up in a shitty situation where the whole package isn't considered so whatever looks the most impressive build just wins on the spot. It almost becomes pay to win.

Want to know who's at fault for that? No bullshit, serious answer. You faggots are. /m/ is pretty much the biggest mecha community that speaks English on the internet. It's been where Gunpla took off for most people and where most people get their news.

What did you do with this power? You did fucking nothing. Every newfag who came along with a OOB build with panel lining got smoke blown up their ass. Every faggot who applied decals or RG stickers was enough to get some (you)s. Any one who actually tried doing something original that was a WIP you ignored, any one who could paint got ignored for people who could barely paint.You always replied with "Heuh Heuh Heuh, bet u couldn't do better, post ur work and let us judge it" when someone shit on a scrub.

You set the bar so low for feedback while not encouraging people who had actual skill. So now you get the national events you deserve. All the people with actual talent left these sort of communities because you did nothing to keep them here. You encouraged "Thin your paints, remove duh nubs, use a pen to panel line then top coat it" as your holy mantra.

So your holy mantra won an international modeling contest representing America. People who could have destroyed that went off to build military kits, went back into miniature competition painting and the Western Gunpla competitive scene was stillborn because of it.

Don't be upset that this model kit won, be upset that you and your peers set the stage for it.

Anon, just because you are an insecure basement dweller with a neckbeard doesn't mean the rest of us are. If you really think /m/ lowered the bar for the "whole of western gunpla" and that would actually influence good builders than you are stupid. Anyone who is actually good at this hobby doesn't care about /m/ or the oppinion of people on this board. It has almost 0 influence on the "scene", while I'm sure a very small minority of gunpla builders in the west even know we exist.

It's true though that /m/ doesn't care about good builds or well done paint jobs and instead prefers snapped kits with some panel lining and top coats. That's because, despite what people here say, most of them can't build/paint for shit. They are just here to act tough and meme just like the rest of 4chan.

Been meaning to get around to doing Ral's Zaku I for ages, and I'm trying to do it before a Zaku I 2.0 gets announced, because I know full well they'd do Ral's as a P-Bandai and I'd bend over and pay the extortionate sum for it.

I talked with the builder of that God Gundam in the second row.

It's actually a Freedom 2.0 heavily customized into a God Gundam.

Sigh is it worth being a strictly 1/100 person? Or should I give in to the tiny-ass 1/144s?
>>
>>15775080
I personally like 1/144s because
A) Small so you can display loads of them
B) Cheaper, more gunpla for less money = more gooder
C) Detail work is a bit harder, so it really forces you to push yourself and work hard to draw as much out of them as possible
Join the 1/144 club, you'll have fun

More mobile fighters are always a good thing, especially to go with your Nobell. If you enjoyed the RX-78, you could try some other RGs. The Zephyranthes was pretty cool, and the Zaku II gets nothing but praise.
For 1/100s, an Origin Gundam is always a sure-fire hit.
>>
>>15775087
I fucking hate 1/144s
>Too damn small
>More gunpla = more boxes to store and more storage space needed

The only reason I'd get a 1/144 if it's the Build Fighters line desu

>>15775094
Mixing scales weirds me out, and HGs feel too small for me, but the selection of 1/100s is pretty limited by comparison. I might get an HG and see how that feels... The Star Wars kits are a perfect size since theyre between HGs and MGs. I'm just getting tired of MGs getting shafted a cool suits
>>
>>15775127
If having the two scales next to each other is weird, why not have one shelf for each scale?
>>
>>15775101
>Too damn small
They are still to scale, so whats the matter with a few inches in size difference?
>More gunpla = more boxes to store and more storage space needed
You can cut and fold boxes down to make them take up less space.
>Build process is too easy
The building process for all models that don't require glue and paint is "too easy".

There are more kits under 1/144, people who like a certain kit can probably find it in that line for a cheaper price.
>>
>>15775133
naww it's the fact of having them together at all. It's like how I have the MG figurise Barnaby Brooks Jr that fits in no where with the rest of my models and I wish I found the 6 inch version first. Bleh damn bandai for not giving me everything that I want

Listen to >>15775126 and also get stands and learn 2 pose, bro.
>>
>>15775172
>what is a good size range
1/100 above, excluding the SD line
>why is 1/144 not included in it?
Because they're too small and simple, personally. Like I said the only reason I'd pick up a 1/144 is because of the Build Fighters line, maybe the RGs or Neo Zeong/Dendrobium too.

If you don't like my opinion, feel free to disagree.
>>
>>15775172
I just wish that the scale was a tad larger, but I understand that would basically trivialize MGs other than for complexity
>>
>>15775189
Nah, you're good. People build gunpla for different reasons. When I first learned about it, all I wanted were some cool action figures. HG hit that niche right on the head; not too complex and easy to customize. Some people just want to go further beyond, and that's fine.
>>
>>15775189
I feel you on the simplicity, but that is why Bandai makes different grades in the first place, buy what you see more value in. You're free to like what you like I was just curious, thanks for sharing your opinions.

That's understandable, RE/100 kinda solves the size problem in that regard.

My rule is go for 1/100 for as much as I can they tend to be better detailed and have more parts so painting is less of a pain with masking but still lets you do tons of work if you want to detail it up.
I tend to only get 1/144 if it does not come in a 1/100 or if the 1/144 is much better in terms of engineering and looks I.E the RG line also the custom work is a double edged sword you get easy kit bashing but it's much smaller to get a ton of detail w/o a lot of work
>>
>>15774580
>That's because, despite what people here say, most of them can't build/paint for shit.

this is a hobby where its all about self improvement I try to up my game every time I do a full build. My GBWC entry was much better then my last and is leaps better then my first painted kit,
many will never want to improve and we should not give tons of praise to people who do the bare minimum, Its why I don't post shit here anymore I can just go to Reddit and get tons of praise and people asking for tips and advice that I hope they use it to make better shit

I don't quite understand the standards for this hobby. No one ever seems happy with anything. I understand to at least panel line, but that seems like the only thing people agree on
>>
>>15774237
niqqa there's like 3-4 people between /toy/ and /m/ that actually make good gunpla
people post groupbuild WIP's a lot of the time and honestly most of them are mediocre
most of the people who actually are good at building gunpla don't come here and you're delusional if you think these two generals actually represent a majority of gunpla makers.
>All the people with actual talent left these sort of communities because you did nothing to keep them here.
Do you even browse these threads? Whenever Richigo or one of the other good builders posts a WIP or a completed build everyone always showers them with (you)s about how great it is.
>>
>>15775543
That is because there are a lot of different directions/depths people take with their kits.

There's snapshitters, panel-line and topcoaters, painters/detailers, kitbashers, people who make dioramas, etc.

People do whatever floats their boat based on their budget and personal goals.

Different people have different standards, that's all it really is. Some people prefer anime accuracy/cartoon stylization for their models, some people prefer super realism with tons of rivets and greebles, some people prefer to just go in and make something crazy just because they can. Just because they prefer one over the other doesn't mean that the other style is invalidated.

As long as you don't end up making Nub Destinys or Red Cliffs and can accept you messed up somewhere and want to learn from your mistakes, you're on the right track. No one in this hobby starts out as a Meijin.

So.. here I am flipping sides again, but why do people bitch when a kit comes with decals or when color apps are perfect? I understand it every now and then when some molding decisions don't make sense, but why do people expect perfection out of the box from what's first and foremost a model kit?

The scale model general is a spinoff of the /toy/ gpg cause some autist couldn't handle the robot aspect of gunpla, you know. Both /gpg/s have always welcomed all plastic and resin model kits.

You could try doing the racing stripe down the front of the torso and make it off centered. Having it stop at the orange section and resume on the front skirt would be nice as well.
You could also turn the cannons around to look like thrusters if you wanted to go the extra mile

>>
>>15776471
If you wanted to paint a checker pattern, you'd use a stencil. Although I am curious about how you'd make a good stencil for Gunpla that doesn't bleed while still keeping cost below that of a waterslide decal.

Keep in mind he said the hg FULL ARMOR unicorn. Not the HG unicorn Gundam. Just yesterday I went to the Gundam base side 6 in Korea, which showed, in a panel, all of the latest suits for unicorn gundam. The hguc full armor gundam came out more recently than the hg unicorn and actually looked just as good as rg unicorn in pure plastic quality. If someone likes all the extra dakka of the full armor and doesn't care about the transformation gimmik of the rg, I can see why they'd prefer the hguc full armor unicorn.
