I have this RG 1/144 RX-78 Gundam GP-01 FB Full Burnern kit, but when I went and saw GundamnGuy's customized build it went on the shelf in order to meditate on how to scratch build...too many hobbies!

I noticed that a lot of people use airbrush for detailing. Can hand paint be just as good? I want to pick up this hobby again but this time, I want to try painting also. Any advice will be greatly appreciated!

When you say detailing there are a few things that come to mind. Full on paint jobs I wholly recommend an airbrush.

Most detailing such as panel lining or weathering can be done with brushes or other tools.

There's different levels of commitment that you can make to have a good looking kit. If you're getting back in to it give at least one straight build a try without paint since kits have really changed from what was made 5+ years ago

I would also like to add to what fil said and say I would highly recommend getting a good quality pair of side cutters and possibly files or a few different sets of sand paper (1000-2000grit) to get rid of pesky nub marks as just having a good set of cutters makes all the difference especially with RG stuff since the parts are so small, and it will improve the look if your just straight building, then slap some matte or gloss top coat and call it done.

As for airbrushing I'm not the best to ask as I have mainly a background in 40k which is mainly hand painted but, I would suggest having a little look on YouTube at a few painting tutorials as they are quite In depth.

Love the idea and detail of the RG line.  Just have the majority of my kits being MG, and would drive me nuts having two different scales.

Currently working on a MG RX-78-2 Ver3.0

Also have made the following:
Seed: MG Strike RM, MG Aegis, MG Duel, MG Buster, MG Blitz.  Looking forward to the MG Freedom 2.0 that was announced.
UC: MG Unicorn HD, MG Jesta
Other: MG Exia
Also have a PG Gundam Astry Red Frame from winning one of those Gundam.Info giveaways that they give when you buy a kit during a certain period.

Like the name implies, I did have a MG Sinanju, but it got ruined right before I left for basic.  Spent forever sanding, priming,  spraying silver and then clear red on it to make it look the best I could and bam; ruined. I did buy another one, but I keep getting speed bump after speed bump with either my airbrush or the compressor and don't want to risk screwing up the kit at this point.

Won it almost two years ago, and has been made.  I'll try to get some pics up later when I can actually try to use something better than my phone.

This is the actual campaign: http://www.bandai-asia.com/gundaminfo-en_4th/result.php

I figured everyone would go for the bundles, so I went for 1 bundle and the single Red Frame.  Turned out pretty well, you can even see some of the RG prizes didn't even have enough entries (12 winners listed out of 16 prizes for example)

Definitely made my day when I read the results.

For the RX-78-2, I am just about to start on the shoulder armor.  Torso, and arms snapped together so far.  Really impressed by the color separation with all the different shades of white and grey.  Only gripe I have so far is the manipulator armor being black. Think it would look a lot nicer matching the rest of the arm armor.

These are pretty sweet! Makes me want to grab some cheaper ones and work on my skills. I have 2 EVA's (00 and 02) from like 20 years ago that have been sitting in my closet. They will get built one day but maybe once i have some skills.

neighbor just gave me 10 or so airplane models.  Gotta get those together at some point.  Junkers plane is my fav

Pretty cool neighbor.  Usually just stick with gundams, but want to get a nice detailed UH-60 at some point. 

As promised, pictures of the PG.  Phone camera unfortunately.
Dusty unfortunately, I want to get one of those detolf glass displays from Ikea but its like $350 shipped vs $67 picked up.


Finishing up the MG RX-78-2.  Debating on how to finish it. I kinda want to just put on decals + panel line and then possibly do a flat coat or do I need to do a gloss coat first for the decals?  Have heard both techniques.

Oh **** you're in NJ.  I know a few places to pick up gunpla if you wanna talk. 

There's actually very little artistic ability necessary.  If you've ever heard of the 80/20 rule you'll  get 80% of a great looking kit for about 20% of the knowledge to get some of the higher caliber stuff you see on blogs and such.  Of course those numbers are made up but it can illustrate the point. 

Patience, however, is the real trait you need.  Something I really lack to be honest.

It's not exclusive to gunpla but...

For a actual info on building better looking gunpla look no further.  Painting is more involved of course but everything you read from the guide I post will help build a solid foundation for painting.

Flushing the sprue marks and giving a top coat always worked for me. The only time I'd consider painting is if I wanted to give it a different feel, eg weathered or so, which I've never done.

Some people can be extremely talented with customizing their kits.

Not Gundam. But I hunted down and commissioned the best Gunpla guy I could find. I wanted someone that could do the subtle shading in the red and blue to give the colors depth, even though they were just solid colors.

Resin Garage kits straight from Japan.

Closest thing you would be able to find is the Rio Bone Canti made by Sentinel, those are a pre painted figures and a little smaller/less detailed. Those ones are pretty expensive now, though.


Finding the original kits that mine were made from was hard as hell back then (2010). I bought them straight from Japan from this guy.
http://tokyohunter.blogspot.com/2010/05/funny-bunny-flcl-canti-color-resin-kit.html
 It would be almost impossible to find them now and extremely expensive.....maybe someone knowledgeable in Japan could source them.....but be prepared to pay up the ass for some pieces of resin. LOL

It's kinda sad how little toys/figures were made for such a popular anime....

I went back East last week for a wedding and got to see all my old Gunpla and Zoids from my childhood. Unfortunately many of them were in a flimsy box with no protection that had a heavy wooden crate placed on top, thus gradually crushing and breaking some of them over the last two decades. It was a little sad :(

I wasn't aware of an importation problem, but that would be a decent reason unfortunately.


Hoping to maybe get another compressor and to finish my Sinanju. Compressors keep dying on me, and it is incredibly frustrating.

Bandai has been rereleasing a TON of newly manufactured old school kits and some sweet new ones.

Heavily considering picking up this MG Full Armor Thunderbolt Ver. Ka

I have that one pre-ordered. So much for such a good price.

Love the Thunderbots for sure. I'm really looking forward to a future announcement for an MG High mobility Thunderbolt Zaku as well, their HG model looks fantastic but HG aint for me.

edit - I stand corrected, it has already been announced!  :thumb:
