then i shall reply your request with my only model. the model is badly painted when compared to any other dedicated modelers. also the camera was sh&% so the resolution isnt the best.
had to paint this much cause it came with blue/greyish plastic

http://img211.imageshack.us/img211/3614/sm...itzback1ah1.jpg

with the purple paint and fine paint brush and got this getter result

the first 2 show no purple bc i thought it would make it look ok. then added purple but it came out pink then added the grey to get a better tone of purple. and its been like that ever since.

edit: do you have any tips on how to safely remove dried paint from the models? i messed up thered on sheild really badly. the paint was a bit too thin and i thought it wouldnt make much difference. clear spots showed up and i just patched them up. now it looks a desert of blood with dunes and hollows.

ty, yes its 144 but it sure doesnt go far in the mobility of the limbs sad.gif. i cant say i've heard about tamiya, i dont know if montreal even has it. the only paint removed i have is some varsal but i doubt its very model-friendly. the only time i used it was to remove some grey when the purple got too dark. i did cheat a bit to get the model to look that way. some red decals were falling off, so i used paint instead. the only decals on the model atm are 4 on the face: grey, red chin and 2 eyes. and that triangle between the yellow V

What tip do you guys use for panel lines? I bought a 0.3 Fine tip art pen, it works fine on my HG Exia, but I couldnt get to some parts of it (arms and hands).

Gundam Marker, fine tip, grey. I don't recommend using a black one because then the panel lines look way too dark and cartoony. A nice grey is dark enough to accentuate the line and light enough to not look silly.

I've been posting in the modeller's thread, but since this one is only for Gundams I think I'll post some of mine in here.
Here's the stoic guardian of my domain:

Wing Gundam DX. Now a rare beast; makes me wish I'd gotten the other ones in the DX series too (God Gundam, GP01, GP02).

Woo. Will be building Deathscythe Hell Custom first, because I'll be giving it as a gift to my sister (it's her favorite Gundam).

Yep, Testors works pretty nicely for me, so I've stuck with it. They have a pretty good selection as far as color goes. It's a lot easier for me to find enamels as opposed to acrylics, and they tend to be cheaper too since they come in a smaller bottle. Also, I have a lot less thinner for acrylics. :/ Check out my collection:

I snagged a whole bunch of acrylic Testors from a yard sale at like 10 cents a bottle, and they threw in the neat little carousel for free. :3

I suppose I'll post the boxes for my models too. I never throw them away it seems.

The Hygog was purely in Japanese, so I had to guess on some parts as to the color and the arrangement since I can't read it. tongue.gif I think it turned out alright despite that. I think the Tallgeese is in Japanese too, but it has that silly English choking hazard sticker defacing the cover. Blegh.

Edit: Also, does that thing next to Wing Gundam DX run on plutonium? biggrin.gif

Wrong version. This one runs on a micronized fusion reactor powered by garbage. whistling.gif Awesome on the Testors though, that was my first paint back when I used to do Star Wars and Star Trek ships. I'm way more familiar with it, so I'll be using it when I go to do some of my gunpla.

Kyishi: As Legend said not all MG Gundam models come with the stand but most the new ones are beginning to roll out with one these days. If you really want a stand you can consider getting the action base stands they should be at your hobby shop they have ones sized ideally for 1/100 and MG lines and a smaller version for the 1/144 and SD Range.

Tiger: Yep painting is essential makes the building process more enjoyable too.


In general im an enamel paint user as well but I use Tamiya because its what most the hobby stores stock here in Sydney.

Edit: It seems like the Destiny is the hot favourite from my collection here are somemore shots for you guys.

You'll notice theres different decals on the left shoulder this is because when I was putting on the faith feather design whatever it is the decal rubbed off and left an ugly residue on the paintwork i had to respray the shoulder. I had some left over after market water decals from the MG Freedom so I put a Zaft logo on that shoulder instead.

The first one that begun my gundam collection MG Wing Zero Custom

Holy crap, you painted the nuts out of that Destiny! For a second I thought it was an "Extra Finish Version," but then I remembered that the "Wings of Light" version Destiny didn't have extra finish except on the joints/hands! I'm not a fan of the whole shiny finish thing--I actually prefer the standard colors with the "Wings of Light"--but you did an AMAZING job on it. Congratulations.

Nomake: Its really boring seeing everything in plain colours even if they are fully painted I like to experiment thats what makes building models fun!!! Im glad my Shiny Destiny managed to catch your attention haha

New Guy: Im by far not a gundam god theres still lots of people out there better than me but thanks for your kind comment.

This is the skill level I aspire to achieve though...

Is that MG? I couldn't really tell the difference between Strike Freedom and Freedom, looks too similar.

But your Freedom looks nice, don't worry wink2.gif
