***READ THE GUIDE***

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.

>Why are my pictures sideways?
4chan strips EXIF data from images when they're uploaded to the website from your phone, including the orientation display tag. To solve this, make sure you save your images out separately, or use an app that will rotate and save the image itself for you.

== CIVILIAN GROUP BUILD ==

Build a mobile suit/mecha that is designed to fill a non-military role. This includes (but is not limited to):
>Police/Emergency work
>Construction/repairs
>Racing/Sports
>Public displays/restoration projects

Weapons are allowed only in the case that they would fit with the theme of the model (A pistol/rifle on a police mech, an axe on a fire fighter mech, a drill on a construction mech, etc).

Submit your finished entries to gunplaplamo@gmail.com with a name for the entry and at least 5 photos of the finished kit and either any WIP images you might have taken of it or a timestamp of the kit with something /m/ related on it.

I've never EVER seen a mecha design and been confused.
And this is coming from someone who can stomach the most foreign of NAGANO and Kobayashi.
But when I saw this I let out an audible "what?!"
And not because the design itself is confusing, but HOW MANY STRIKES CAN BANDAI PUT OUT?
Waht is this like the 57th variant? That's probably a conservative estimate to be honest.
THis thing looks like some weird transformable Strike or something, it just seems odd.
I don't even think it's a bad design, but like...why does it exist?

they're all that nice, but Turn A is different, its a weird design that uses a lot of odd joint assemblies and things just go together differently than other models you'll build. it was the 100th MG so they put a little bit more effort into the finer details like the palms of the hands or all the little moving plates on the chest, it really shows even 10 years later.

An example from Dalong. The guy colors his panel lines thick to show where the panel lines are (cause he's a reviewer), but you can still see the contrast of pure white and black lines vs white+grey and black lines in those other kits.

I find black on white lining works in some cases, but not all. For things that you want to be more prominent, such as face vents, should be black. But things that you want more subtle, like various miscellaneous lines are better as great.

He also shows things that most other review sites always seem to neglect despite being so fucking obvious, like how the kit looks built OOB and unpainted, or just simple fucking photos of the runners and sticker sheets.
Most other sites seem to be more interested in showing off their l33t painting and customizing skillz that they forget what the point of a fucking kit review is.

So currently, I build, line (Tamiya + enamel thinner), sticker, and call the kit done. Some kits are obviously missing some small paint apps, and I'm thinking of getting these to fill those in. I understand masking and spraying is the best course of action when it comes to painting, but I can't currently do that.

Are these enamel? Ya know, so my enamel thinner can actually erase any mistakes. Should I get some brushes too? What kind of brushes if so? Anything else I should know? Thanks anons.
>>
>>16168962
I don't know if gundam markers are enamel or not, but you can just use alcohol to clean up the paint from gundam markers just fine. Also definitely get brushes, gundam markers actually work better if you decant the paint and apply with a brush. What kind of brush? I dunno, whatever you can find that is cheap but not shitty.

Jokes aside, the pegs connecting the legs to the waist are fragile in the Freedom 2.0 frame, which Providence uses. I think Justice has the same frame too
>>
>>16168978
Brushes are needed if the area is hard to reach or a single swipe of the marker tip doesn't cover at least 75% of the area.

Gray, Black, Red, Blue and Yellow are usually the small missing details.

You don't use gold leaf on anything you're gonna handle again afterwards.

Honestly the problem is that it's a bit of a mess and with the binders and extra weapons it'd likely have a base price over 3000 yen. The market for that would be far too low.

Oh, I must have seen it on sale then, my bad.
The only REAL difference is the base, but the base isn't really worth 1600 yen unless you're a big fan of Providence.
Of course, if standard version is sold out, you only have one option unless you're happy waiting an undisclosed amount of time in the hope for it to get restocked.

You wait for it to actually cure. If it's gummy then it's not cured. It's an air dry putty and it will only dry in thin layers.

Also use waterproof sandpaper and wash it before it gets clocked beyond usefulness.

I usually use 600, then 1000, then 1200/1500. If you can't find it in store, buy some online. Getting a few sheets of higher grit is usually only around $1.50 if you're ordering from a Japanese store.

Expect next to no articulation, It's playmobil level. You have to take off the shoulder armor to use the big gun, and it lacks surface detail. Picture the Tristan scaled up and you'll get a rough idea of what ypu're getting into. If you really like the suit you should wait since the newer version should come out soon since we got the regular ZZ ver.Ka
>>
With all this Pbandai talk I’ve developed a sort of equation to determine whether or not a kit should be Pbandai. Runners should be given a percentage for their general size let’s say small, medium, and large. Then it would be given a multiplier based on several factors such as if it was from an anime or manga, it’s prevelence in the story, etc. Is this a good idea or am I crazy.

Of course I'm mediocre at everything I do (which is why I can hardly even snap a kit together without ruining it completely) but some snapfags stay snapfags because they have a life outside of gunpla and don't want to invest in painting tools or just want cool robots from their favorite shows.

My experience with these has been awful (loose joints on my shining gundam OOB) so I have no intent of buying too many more of these. I've heard the ANIME line is good so I'll be buying Alex and Zaku Kai, because unlike you I actually care about the series I watch for more than just the epic cool awesome ace custom special snowflake new type suits.

>Let’s just keep posting sideways pictures of snapbuilds though.
dude, epic. Get it? sideways? because phone posters, dude epic, I get it. I love this community. My exposure to gundam is limited to Unicorn, 00, and GBF and thus I'm a massive tool who only cares about shiny toys with flashy unique colors. I have no concept of what a good design is or how much effort the early designers like Izubuchi and Fujita put into creating beautiful designs like the Byarlant and Kampfer )because I refuse to watch any pre 2000s show because cheesy old animation) because my only exposure to these robots is the lanky, watered down, greebled-up, streamlined redesigns by Katoki butchered to appeal to 15 year olds with ADHD like myself. But that's okay, because RED makes everything 5 times faster! I love the Sinanju!

HG revives are just updated versions of suits with older kits. You might want to check out the new Guncannon in that line; it’s seriously great
>>
>>16170790
HG revive's have had previous HG's and the revives are better/newer

There are probably 50+ gm kits if not more, and a handful of guncannons. There is even a guncannon revive I think.
>>
>>16170783
Mao makes the best builds.
>>
>>16170771
If you want to start off easy I'd recommend the Revive/Origin/HGUC HG kits. When you want to start building things that require actual modeling work then I'd say you can look into very early 2000's kits and earlier.

As for RG's and MG's it varies from kit to kit and how much work you want to put into it. Very possible to bang one out in a day if you just snap it up but that's not suggested.
Read the guide before asking questions like these next time.

So I dunno if any anons went to the Gunpla Expo in Sydney, but if you're thinking about it, don't. Utter shitshow. Totally out of the exclusives when we finally got to the cashier with nothing saying they were out, that lootbox thing ended up being false advertising (didn't exist), a really scummy way of selling kits which just forces you to not be able to properly look at what you can get, and according to some people we were talking to afterwards (who apparently got in at 9 and were sixth in line) they had no stock at all of the exclusives (they got the last of the clear RGs).

Honestly the trip to the Hobbyco at Campbelltown ended up being more worthwhile, got a 1/100 SUMO there and some stuff for my Dreamcast at the (amazing) Gametraders there.

Pretty pissed at Hobbyco desu but hopefully they'll learn from this.

To be honest, I never really understood the appeal of clear expo kits. The only expo kits that seem kind of cool to me was the ones from the whatever asian country last year, IIRC China, that had some floral decals with them.

My last groupbuild was a 1/35 mechatro and I was pleased with the results. The cavity inside is rather small however so putting battery packs for leds or small figures inside could be a hassle. It all kinda depends on what you plan on doing with it. Equipment for HG's can fit the 1/35 but sometimes they can be a tad bit oversized.

Primer gives the paint something to adhere to, and depending on the color of the primer (and the paint), it will change the...depth? of paint. An example would be using black underneath a layer of clear or metallic color.

Thin your paint and be patient. Too much paint makes it pool. If you make a mistake, you can strip the paint and start over.

Because Bandai has cost effectiveness down to a T. They own their own factories that are mostly automated with little actual workers, they reuse the hell out of their molds, even making the molds able to shut off certain sections to reuce part waste when reusing them, they get the license for next to nothing, and mass produce the fuck out of their kits and continue producing them for years after release to keep making money off of them. These all make major differences in pricing.

>>16171836
You don't buy many other model kits or from other brands do you? For what you get in the box most mg are comparatively dirt cheap.
>>
>>16171946
>Shut off certain sections to reduce part waste when reusing them
Do they? I have several kits that come with an abundance of additional unused parts.

You ever see those parts of the runner that have the little raised tabs that are sometimes slightly misaligned with the rest of the runner? Those are areas where they can shut off plastic flow to that portion of the runner. If there are any parts the kit needs on that section they leave the entire section in and you end up with extra parts. They've been getting better and better about planning out runner layout and future release reuse with their newer molds but sometimes you get things like cherudim coming with basically the entire base kit plus the new runners because it was planned to be reused in the saga version.

Is gundam decals a company? Or do you mean the "sticker" type decals? I am after waterslides.

Bandai has their own line of Gundam decals, but he selection is limited at times and they tend to do farely limited production runs. its too bad because they are all pre-cut and very good quality, though a little thick for waterslides.

if you dont want Chinese ebay crap check out SamuelDecals on facebook, dig through his image folders for what you are looking for and email him directly for orders. he does carry some standard Chinese printed decals but the unique stuff that only he carries are pretty nice, though none of them are pre-cut.

HiQ Parts also makes some generic decals including camouflage markings, but they are a bit of a bitch to put on since they arnt pre-cut.

He barely does decals anymore. Orders take months because he's busy crying over bootlegs.

>>
>>16172353
Thanks man. And when you say precut, you mean you have to physically cut the design of the waterslide out? Like there isn't a lining around it at all? Even my chinese ones had that.
>>
>>16172353
>Pre-cut
Why isn't this standard?
>>
>>16172379
Because its an extra step that requires extra equipment/nicer printers and all that costs money.

yep. most cheaper waterslides are just printed directly onto one giant sheet of decal film, you have to trim out the marking that you want and slide it on, which can sometimes be quite small.

>>16172379
way more expensive to produce.
>>
>>16172363
You mean third party kits. Samuel doesn't sell bootlegs.

Are there any kits that someone who normally paints kits, wouldn't want to/need to paint?

I sand/prep kits at home and paint at work, but I'm off work for a bit.

Maybe the RG unicorn?
>>
>>16172398
Hey there, It's been a while since we had an Australian poster.

Putting the kit together is rewarding in itself, but you should try to expand your skill range as you go. But more importantly be sure to have fun regardless of how far you will go customizing your kits.
>>
>>16172415
yeah i for sure need to learn to take a little more time with removing nubs and invest in some smaller nippers, i managed to get away with it quite a bit given how turn a is mostly white but there are a couple of spots i accidentally gouged with an x-acto trying to get a stubborn bit of plastic off
i appreciate the positivity though brother thank you

>>16172391
Unlicensed, illegally-made third party kits might as well be bootlegs, not that it's stopped me from buying them. Also the Daban Stein, Sazabi, and Dragon Momoko 3.0 hands copy are all examples of literal bootlegs he's sold before.

>>16172437
The moment I found out I hated SamuelDecal is when he said a third party chinese deep striker (not the tiefsturmer) looked better than the bandai mg. Just because he's chinese he thinks it's patriotic to say a chinese knockoff looks better.

I wonder how these would look painted with clear paint. And I think it's more of a memento/souvenir thing: You travel somewhere for the expo, probably get some food in the area and have a look around the place, and you pick up an event exclusive kit that's "rare" and reminds you of that day.

>paying $79 for a Pale Rider
I wasn't sure if it was worth it but I guess if you really like it.

Tbh I'd be less salty about the exclusives if they, you know, had something to say "Hey they sold out lol". Pretty shitty to get you going through the shop, making decisions based on getting an exclusive, only to find out they don't have anything and that the only other slightly unique thing (however shitty the concept may be) in the lootbox actually wasn't being run lel.

I dunno, I guess I'm just hoping that what happened here in Canberra with BrickExpo happens with this, where the first run was awful and they quickly realized that they had to change a lot for the next year.

Life for a fan of GMs becomes hell when you realize the franchise runs on the systematic oppression of your favorite type of suit.

“If you want a glimpse into the future of Gundam, imagine a Zaku stomping on a GM’s face, forever”

-Fuck you bandai
>>
>>16173382
GMs have to die to make Zakus look imposing so the Gundam pilots will look competent when they inevitibly shoot them all down. GMs can do better in Zeon stories because Zeron stories are often tragedies and getting gunned down by nameless fodder is tragic.

They could have given us the GM Night Seeker or a GM III at least.

How hard is it to shoehorn in a few shots of GM killing a Zaku for fucks sake? How am I supposed to believe the Federation is winning when all of their troops are FUCKING DEAD because the Zeeks are YAMATO BANZAI STURONGEST WARRIAH
EVEN 0080 PULLS THIS SHIT
EVEN 08TH MS TEAM, THE GRUNTWANK SERIES, HAS A FULL TEAM OF GUNDAM TROOPS AND THE GMS ALL GET FUCKED AS SOON AS THEY SHOW UP IN ANY SCENARIO

The Snipers and GM/GM were pretty good, but I'd be lying if I said it wasn't fucking gay that the GM Command is just the already existing (p-bandai) Space Command with different coloring and one less gun. At least we can expect to possibly see more now that there's an updated GM frame.
Only rubs salt in the wound when we have like 9 origin Zakus or whatever dumb number it is.
>>
>>16173396
Bro. Calm down. No need for this level of anger. Wanna talk about the MG GM Sniper Custom? It's a great kit, very fun build. Looks good, too.

>>16173396
>EVEN 0080 PULLS THIS SHIT
Because 0080 had a Gundam. The GMs at the arctic base were slain so the Gundam's escape could be tense. The GMs at the colony were slain so it'd look like the Kampfer would have a chance at taking down the Alex, so it'd be more tragic when the Alex just riddles it full of bullets. The GMs are like security guards in 007 movies, faceless grunts that named characters knock off so the hero can be flashy and save the day.

>EVEN 08TH MS TEAM [...]
Did a GM Sniper not get the final killshot on the Apsalus in the end? Was that not a show that had GUNDAMS? GMs exist so Char looks good. Zakus exist so Amuro looks good. That's how these stories go.
