==INDIRECT COMBAT ROLES GROUPBUILD==

Build a mecha or vehicle that is meant for an indirect role in combat. This can concepts such as:
>Electronic Warfare And Communications & Airborne Early Warning And Control
>Minelayers and long-range weaponry spotters
>Scouting and Surveillance
>Commanding roles
>Sub-flight units to aid MS (Base Jabbers)
>Field Repairs & Supply
Basically any kind of combat role that isn't just "Robot made to shoot/punch another robot"

Submit your entries to gunplaplamo@gmail.com , include at least 5 finished pics and any WIP pics you took while working on your entry, as well as a brief description of your build.

On one hand I'm glad I don't have to deal with ridiculously tiny PE, on the other hand I wish I did.
Handling/painting/assembling these pieces is going to take a whole next level of care. I'm not using a toothbrush (or running water) to wash them, that's for sure.

This may be a really dumb fucking question but is there some sort of site that allows you to mix and match the Core Gundam armors? After messing with my new Plutine HG I kinda want to make a custom for it.

I need a bit of displaying advice or a recommendation.
I'm getting the clear plastic Daizyujin in a few months, and want to find a light up stand or base for him.
Most of the ones I can find are for glass spheres and only focus the light through the center, or have rainbow LEDs, and I'm not sure that's necessary.

I must be blind, I've only ever seen it happen this week. amazing deals regardless.
>>
>>10990779
Yeah, Hobby Lobby is a decent source of cheap Gunpla, their selection is very generic but every now and then they get some pretty good kits in like RG Hi-Nu and MG Sinanju OVA. As of recently they're starting to get stocks of SEED kits and action figure kits (including Tallgeese II, which is 1/144 size and probably the only way to get one outside of P-Bandai), and it might not be long before they get 00 S2 HG kits since those just got a reprint.

Protip, since they get resupplied every week you can ask what day their truck gets in and stop in the day after to see what new kits are on the shelves. If you buy a kit at full price, just keep the receipt and don't open it, then come back during a 40% off week and request a price match.

Is it just Gundam, or do Digimon kits go cheap too?
>>
>>10990962
They don't stock Digimon stuff to my knowledge. You'll have to do your own research, but various sections of the store get discounted different percentages on different weeks. For the models stuff, that applies to boxed models, which includes their Star Wars, military vehicles and classic automobiles. Doesn't apply to Action Bases or action figures in the same section.

So predictably the tiny antennae didn't print properly (stopped at about 1/2 their intended size and curled for some reason) and so it's time for the old-fashioned way: drill 0.15mm holes and glue antenna-sized 0.1mm wire into them.
Goes to show that 3D printer won't do everything for you, modelling skills are not going obsolete anytime soon.

>>10993521
Pretty sure you could easily print something that thin with a 4k or 8k printer but it will snap off at a slight gust of wind
>>
>>10993653
You definitely can, but for it to print properly you need to support it on both sides and for it not to break off right away you need to use a more elastic resin (neither of which our chinese friends did).
>>
>>10993653
There are softer resins that can print thin details fine without snapping. Hell you could probably mix something like tenacious with an ABS-like and have it turn out fine. Miniature printers print small self standing details like swords and spears all the time

how would you even ship this without something breaking?

What's been y'all's experiences with ordering from P-Bandai
>>
>>10994539
It's pretty good, but you have to be the kind of person who's patient enough to be willing to wait several months after purchase before you get your kit. Also, the shipping is always $10 flat, so it's often to your benefit to buy multiple kits from the same month.

They'll also occasionally (read: regularly) re-list a kit the month after its pre-order period ends (e.g. if a kit goes up on the site in March, the pre-order period ends in June and the boxes go out in July, it is fully possible for that same kit to go up again in August if all pre-order capacity was filled very quickly. So if there's a month where your desired kit is the only thing out of the catalog you want, there's a possibility that it'll go up again in a later month, though don't rely on it.
>>
Feeling burned out on official kits. Can anyone recommend some chinesium for me? Mostly interested in AOZ aesthetics. I'm fine with resin recasts or plastic. Pic unrelated.
>>
>>10994539
Good. No complaints, it works exactly like you'd think. You preorder, pay, and then a few months later a kit arrives. If you intend to buy from there regularly, pay with credit card, not paypal. The former allows you to combine shipping if you later order stuff coming out the same month, the latter does not.

What are the lens looking things on radomes? Are they cameras? Sensors? Just round things that happen to look like lenses? I'm having trouble determining their purpose because not all radomes have them.
>>
>>10994821
It's a fictional piece of technology, it doesn't serve any purpose other than to look cool. Are you asking because you want to know what color to paint it, or if it should be shiny? That's entirely up to you, most radomes I've seen don't have glass or shiny pieces on them (e.g. the person who designed them take inspiration from real-life radar dishes/antennas, which detect radio waves and not visible light)

I don't pay above £40 including postage for any RG. I got Nu and Hi Nu RG's for about £35 each once postage is included. I buy a large number of models at once from HLJ and so far haven't been forced to pay import taxes or VAT on anything because I stay below the thresholds.
HLJ charges a lot for postage so make sure you factor in 30 euros for postage. Works out great when you get two 3 RG's at a time.
Also it's on backorder so you could be waiting 6 months.

When exactly did Bandai change their plastics? Not a negative question.

I decided to buy a bit of an older kit just to practice some painting and cementing. a 2004 Seed kit

i noticed how different the plastic is, its almost rough and really shiny. Im not sure how to describe it.

the plastic looks terrible on the backside of pieces too.

when did they change?

as a teen, i never noticed it being this bad.
>>
>>10995114
Probably around 2010 is when they changed things up, but have been changing their plastic formula every few years with certain releases.
>>
>>10995114
They made an in-house blend of polystyrene called "KPS" that's supposedly more durable than regular PS but also more paintable than ABS. Google shows it being mentioned in 2015 but i forgot when they actually started using it on commercial releases.

>its almost rough and really shiny.
>the plastic looks terrible on the backside of pieces too.
Finishing is more due to the mold tooling, less to do with material. glossy molded surfaces = cheap, molded surfaces with machining marks = cheapest.

Thanks for recommendations. Starfield Asgard has been on my radar too but it seems like they missed their release date and haven't had any updates. Seems like there are very few 3rd party kits that try to do UC stuff, and even then it's only minor stuff like the subarms and square skirt plates.

Hello anons, i'm a beginner and looking to assemble a kotobukiya kit so that it looks nice enough to display while keeping it as easy as possible.

I was planning on buying a black gundam marker for the "panels" and spraying all the parts with matte or semi-gloss topcoat (tamiya brand...?) before assembling it all. Hopefully without breaking any, but i was thinking of buying some (tamiya...?) cement just in case i did, and maybe trying to use it to seal some seams if there are any obvious ones?
The only experience i have of model kits is a chinese knock off metal slug, its pretty cool, i broke 2 pieces putting it together but you cant really tell.

Does this sound like a plan to you anons? Am i overkilling it? Or is this a dumb waste of money. Im shying away from actually paining the thing because i know i couldnt do it to any sort of acceptable standard. But running a marker around some grooves and then spraying it sounds within my comfort zone, haha. Thanks for your time.

Pic related was my first ever plastic kit, Takemikazuchi (v 1) by Kotobukiya.
It has no topcoat and I didn't use any glue (except for some superglue in some internal support part that wasn't visible from the outside.
But since this was a Koto kit, I couldn't get away without at least some detail painting and marker alone wouldn't cut it either. So I had to learn how to paint on a very basic level.

The nice thing about Kotobukiya kits is how tightly parts snap together, so even if there is a seam running along the middle of the leg, for example, you are not going to see it. The downside of that is the inability to disassemble the snapped together parts without some damage, so you will need to plan the sequence of assembly pretty carefully.

Being a beginner with zero experience, I didn't want to do anything to the kit that I wouldn't be able to easily undo and redo if I get it wrong the first time. That's why I didn't attempt to topcoat it and avoided using plastic cement. I used acrylic paint to paint details because it was easy to strip (and I ended up having to strip the parts I painted a few times before I got it right).

Looks really good, thanks for the advice. It seems im not too far off base with my plans, which is good to know. And yours looks fine without any topcoat, though thats probably because you painted it.
Does anyone have any examples of different kinds of topcoat, what they actually look like when applied? For example, matte, semi-gloss, or "super clear", or any other types you like to use?

Like I said, I only painted details that were obviously the wrong color out of the box, specifically all the red bits, the black inserts in the shoulders and I painted the clear parts silver on the inside to make them reflect light. All the purple and gunmetal is just bare plastic.

I don't have any other Bulkarm yet but this is around the height of a normal MG kit
The cool thing is hoe customizable it is thanks to the hexagons and 3mm hardpoint connectors all over the place, this will let me install a minigun from an old set of HG weapons I had stored in a box for years

Oh nice, that's the size I was hoping for. I am surprised at the clear parts, the promo shots show them as solid metallic orange. This is much cooler.

It's a bit taller (longer legs) but not as bulky

head is pretty weird
there is no main visor or camera, only a vaguely humanoid shaped face molded in silver parts. I painted with light blue 2 little squares molded at the sides that seemed like cameras to me
just like the zakus, you can choose between a grunt version with a smooth helmet or the commander's version with the antenna, which happens to be very thick

Short of trimming them closer to the detail is there anything to be done to make stickers not suck? I've been experimenting with decal softener and airbrush thinner to try and kind of "weld" the sticker the plastic but I've not had any success. I'm reluctant to use anything too strong for obvious reasons.

The sticker film is not meant to be "welded" or "softened", it is most likely polyethylene so you will melt your kit's plastic long before you manage to do anything to the sticker. The only way to try and hide the sticker edges is to drown it in many coats of clear top coat with multiple sandings in between them, which is NOT worth the effort.

Finally got this in the mail.

Anyone got any tips on assembly?
What paints should I use for the missiles?
What decals to order?
>>

I know it's not meant to be used like that, that's why I said experimenting.

this
just build it as you want and enjoy yourself
missiles are supposed to be red right? you could just grab some acrylics and a brush and get to it

Which version of that did you print?
There's a couple floating around online and I never got around to printing any of them.

Like clear stickers? Not really. If you are building a popular or important kit, you may be able to purchase third party aftermarket waterslides which will look a lot nicer.

I have no trouble with non-clear stickers unless it's on very curvy or complex surfaces, so if that is your issue I cannot help you.
>>

I end up painting things cause I'm a tard that always ends up over sanding something

Different guy doing a Kotobukiya kit here
Hypothetically how would you go about doing blood spatters like pic rel? Thought about maybe flicking the brush with my finger from a distance to produce the spatter but the speckles are usually too small IME.

>kind of want to try resin kits because of sharper and crisper details than plastic
>can't find any resin kits I actually like cause chinks have no sense of aesthetics and japs have their shitty 1 day copyright rule

Close the MAC valve on your airbrush almost all the way down and adjust until the droplet size is satisfactory.

Mandarake is still here. 3D prints are also technically resin.

Time to stalk yahoo auctions for good deals then

>>11011685
you can do it with some dark red acrylic and a brush and apply thin even layers
if you want the splatter effect, maybe try something like a small sponge, cut it first to get some irregular surface and crevices and apply the paint with it

Got these lads in today. I'm all set for the weekend.

I don't get it, if you're going to 1:1 copy the Catapult, why would you bother with a boilerplate name and designation code? It's from Russia, we already know it's going to be bootleg shit, why not just outright call it a Catapult?
