Title: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Gaijin Gunpla on October 17, 2010, 01:21:09 AM
Come one, come all! (come more than one, at least.)

It's time for the next great Group Build here on GAF and for this one we are again busting out a UC kit.  This time it's the soon to be released Master Grade ReZEL!

This transforming kit looks to be quite the build and I'm excited to be doing it with you Australian (and other) Gunplars.

Here are the rules:

Rule #1: No rules

and I'm serious.  The last thing I want to read is "I wanted to do this, but...", so I leave no room for buts. Err.  Anyways, if you want to straight build it go right ahead.  Paint?  Of course, more than welcome.  Modifications are greeted with open arms.  There's no deadline so you can start and finish whenever you want.  Post your progress in here and/or link to your blog whichever you prefer (just don't save all the goodness for your blogs. Share the love.)

Participants:

Gaijin Gunpla - Finished
Sonar
Hoardz
Hemish - Finished! Second ReZEL underway!
HoaHoa
Shifty - Finished!
American Salaryman - Finished!
Lupes
the_infallible
Tzivya
G.G.
Derringer
forceofsingularity
Falldog - Finished!
Random
Freya
Wolfman X
Infinity
zahmad
Dakaramor
randomguy7737
Zhi - Finished!
Zenma5ter
Shadow928
Xenomorph


If you wish to join just say so in this thread and you will be added to the list.

Let's enjoy this kit together and encourage each other onwards towards the finish line (if there is one).  I am already giddy with anticipation.  Or maybe it's the rum.

I would definately be involved with a group build featuring the Rezel. Is it a difficult kit for beginners? Being a transformable MG MS, if the build was also open to the 144 for anyone who is restricted by funds/experience maybe that would help get more people on board. The release of Unicorn Part 2 would coincide nicely with the build. The Rezel should get some screen time in this installment.

Oh yeah! I'm in for sure. The SGBP was an entity unto itself, but we have all progressed in terms of skill and reach so i have no doubt this will be fantastic. Who else is down? Would you like to set some guidelines Gai Gun?

HOT DAMN! The GAF RGBP!

*Stickies topic and runs off to HLJ to preorder ReZEL!

Ok who else wants an MG ReZEL from HLJ? If we get enough we might be able to take advantage of the 50% off Fedex shipping. I will gauge the interest here over the next 24 hours and then maybe post a topic in the Strength in Numbers forum or tottle off and just order one for myself accordingly. :)

I'm in. Can feel the start of something good here. A HLJ order would be a good way to start the project and tie in with the big announcements recently. Sign me up for a kit, and anything I can help with just shout out.

Orer it and I'll put the money in your account with the funds for the meckaskunk stuff

Can you tell me how a group build works? Are their any rules, timeframes, technique requirements?
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Sonar on October 17, 2010, 09:07:40 PM
That makes 3. Get 'em while they're hot folks!

Shifty a GB generally has a theme or specific kit. Usually paint as a minimum. They range from strict rules and colour schemes to complete free-for-alls. If this one is anything like the GAF SGBP it will have very limited conditions and be open ended, meaning there is no time limit and anyone can join in at any time. Stay tuned for Gai Gun's update, he will lay it down for you I'm sure.

Will await the update

Jump in Shifty, if nothing else group builds are awesome for inspiration
Egging each other on will also generally help you to finish as well.

Post by: Sonar on October 18, 2010, 08:06:31 AM
Ahahahaha! Enjoyed that opening Gai Gun.

Ooh hot damn, no paint as a minimum? It's on for young and old.

Folks please see the MG ReZEL Group Buy thread (http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/index.php/topic,287.0.html).

Hoa do you want me to put you down for a kit with the group order? Shifty you're in. Pay by direct deposit, I will PM you when the order's been placed.

Paging Busterbeam, ASM, and Lupes, please make your way to the ReZEL GBP thread, your mobile suit awaits.

Let's go folks! Whoe else is in on this?

Popping with excitement right now. :D

here's a rough (check out that QUALITY rifle) lineart for the Rezel i did awhile back if you're interested.

(http://i53.tinypic.com/hwhjxu.jpg)

I can work on a "easy colour change version" where all you have to do is open its psd in photoshop and change the colour of the shape layers if people want it.


i lost the file in a recent format. i can still do it though, just will take longer.

ReZEL Commanders are welcome. We'll call that round 2 of the Group Build as it will have to start in january.

Hoa that is outstanding. If you can hook up the easy colour change version that would be so awesome.

From the sadly defunct Gunota Headlines (http://aeug.blogspot.com/2007_05_01_archive.html) I came across this nice little spec blurb while trawling for something else:

Quote
RGZ-95 ReZEL
"A unit from the RGZ (Refine Gundam Zeta) series developed with the intent to mass produce the Z Gundam. To dedicate a measure of success to the mass-production, 8 of them, including a commanding officer's, are deployed on the Nahal Argama. Rather than the RGZ-91 Re-GZ's variable Back Weapon System, this unit was designed to make use of a more flexible variable structure. The transformation mechanism is a simplified throwback to the MSA-005 Methuss' system. Further, costs were reduced by partly sharing an interior design with the Jegan's. The result is the first transforming MS in the GM/Jegan line.


I thought I posted this in this thread (http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/index.php/topic,100.0.html), but that must have been the massive post I lost before the draft system was installed. Plenty of nice pics in that thread anyhow.

From Gundam Wiki (http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/RGZ-95_ReZEL):

Quote
ReZEL (Refined Zeta Escort Leader)

Technology and Combat Characteristics
Londo Bell mobile suit intended as another attempt to mass-produce the MSZ-006 Zeta Gundam, after the RGZ-91 Re-GZ series was deemed a failure based on an evaluation of its overall combat performance and production costs. It uses the basic frame of the RGM-89 Jegan and has a transformation system similar to the MSA-005 Methuss instead of the Back Weapons System (BWS).

It is armed with a beam rifle, at least one forearm grenade launcher, and a beam shield and piloted by Riddhe Marcenas. Equipped with hyper beam rifle, beam rifle, and shield.

There are only minor cosmetic differences between the normal ReZEL and the Commander Type, most notable of which is a set of wing binders mounted on the back of the latter inspired by the MSN-00100 Hyaku Shiki. The normal ReZEL has distinct purple lights on its frame where the Commander's unit has green lights instead.



Don't forget the Gundam Australia HLJ Group Buy (http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/index.php/topic,287.0.html) for this kit deadlines tomorrow night! ;)

Excellent.  and yes, more rum.  I used some of that while building half a Deathscythe last night and wow did that thing just fly by. Great kit, btw.
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Sonar on October 21, 2010, 11:32:01 AM
Rum lends itself to building a Crossbone, methinks. Gyarrr. xD

ReZEL kits have been pre ordered, so with a bit of luck they will be dipatched soon and we can all get cracking!

Perhaps Gai Gun will be gracious enough to bless us with a 'first look' on his blog tonight...?

I'm itching to hear that the stock has arrived. No shipping estimate available on the HLJ site yet so obviously not in stock just yet. For this reason I had to take a bit of a punt with the shipping for the pre order. ;D

Yeah, I'm waiting on an exact release date before I order mine since I'll be buying this+airbrush at the same time.

And of course I made sure to get mine! (And the Sinanju, as you can see from my backlog wall... ^_^;;)

Got my color scheme working out in my head.  Should be able to pick up the paint sometime this weekend and start on the ReZel after I finish a prior kit.  Going for some different colors for me, but we'll see how it goes.  I'm going to try and channel some GaiGun inspiration here...

As for aftermarket parts, I don't think I'll use them this time around.  I like thrusters, but they are such a pain in the ass to prepare and to paint.

I've got my three main colors picked out and bought.  Last night I sat down to look at the parts, and to do a light build of the frame to see what I might need to paint, or not.  For the frame though, I'll probably go with my tried and true Gun Metal though, which some highlights.  The gun is a slightly darker blue then the dark blue that the feet and chest use, but I think I'm going to paint it the same color as those pieces, as it's kind of a waste to buy another can of paint just for the gun.  

I'll probably start cutting out the armor pieces over the next few days and doing the cleanup in prep for painting.  If things work out I can do some initial spraying this Sunday.  Fingers crossed.

(http://americansalaryman.files.wordpress.com/2010/10/photo11.jpg)

Love those Zeta type legs!  

Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: madmoz on October 25, 2010, 04:16:50 PM
I am not sure if this works for spray cans, but you can always get a 'different' shade of blue by varying your basecoat - i.e. if you use mr surfacer for the gun and mr white surfacer for the rest and you use the same amount of paint passes for both, you'll end up with a subtle difference in 'blueness'.

Worth a try methinks.
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: ASM on October 25, 2010, 04:51:55 PM
That's a good tip, I hadn't even thought of that.  I just happen to have cans of both Tamiya white and grey primer, so I'll use the grey then for the then.  I figure that should give it a slighty darker color than the white.
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone

Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: ASM on October 26, 2010, 11:03:59 AM
@Buster, aww, was hoping we could drag you down with us.  Oh well, fingers crossed for seeing you in round 2.  Although I can see that the HG Sinanju has gotten ahold of you.  I was going to post the below response on your blog, but work blocks blogger comment posting.

"Everyone has HG Sinanju fever!  I can't talk because I started building the torso last night, taking a break from the ReZel.  Only having done the torso, I can say I'm already impressed with just the overall quality of this HG.  Definitely not your Japanese father's HG! 

That said, putty?  We doing some modding?  I figured I would just give the red a nice flat top coat, but I wouldn't mind painting it either... could this mean a second HG Sinanju kit is in my future...?"

Now back to ReZel talk, I put the basic arm frames together last night giving me the below.  I'll take my time now to the weekend with just prepping the colored pieces.  I've actually got a lot of photos I need to take of about 3 other kits to get posted, so that's going to take a bit of priority.  Figure I shouldn't give myself too much of a head start either!  ;D

I realised that i voted cant be bothered for this in the other thread, this is all your fault sonar!!
Looking at the instructions for this over at Dalong.net and getting ideas on how to paint this one up
Should be a whole lot of fun, I can tell you the alclads will be coming out for the internal frame on this one :)

Is there a good place to order those online? I've been dying to bust them out on something but can never find a nice site to order them from.

I'm guessing this is in regards to the alclad paints?

I did a google seach and found a couple of places, there was one in nsw i cant remember the name of hand and the other was in perth stanbridgeshobbies i think it was called , they stocked them and shipped them interstate, standard prices about $15  a bottle

Nope, I couldn't wait. Well, I was prepared to but with the weather deteriorating the last couple of days I couldn't do any painting so I cracked open the ReZEL. I finished the test build tonight and played with it a little.  The transformation is intense and probably a little too complicated.

Hello all, Gundam Guy asked if I wanted to partake, so here I am. I've never participated in a group build so I'm not sure how this works exactly.

I just started a few minutes ago on this kit after watching episode two. I get a great feeling from the runners so I'm excited to move forward.

Hi Falldog, welcome aboard.

Basically how it works is you post updates of your progress in this thread, try and include a pic or two where possible and also when you're finished. Then we all vibe off each other's progress and ideas and at the end hopefully we have a whole batch of awesome ReZEL's that someone with PSD skills can photoshop into an awesome picture.

BTW anyone who feels like coming up with a nice banner for the RGBP that would be totally killer! Best banner will receive a once off 10% discount code for a HLJ order!

As a bonus, anyone who completes a painted ReZEL for the GBP will receive a once off 10% discount code for a HLJ order!
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Sonar on November 01, 2010, 10:15:29 AM
Ok here's a brief recap of the get-together yesterday:

I arrived at Hemish's place about 5 minutes late ;) to collect him and then head up to Zombster (http://www.zombster.com.au/) to check out their Halloween Cosplay Sale Day (http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/index.php/topic,226.msg2311.html#msg2311) and meet up with Hoardz and Xenitro. Unfortunately I didn't remember to bring my camera but we got a few shots off on Hemish's. We all had a chat with the crew from Zombster and ogled their massive selection of Gunpla for a good hour and a half before making a nice sized dent in it, posing for a group shot, and then heading back to my place for the GB meet. Unfortunately Xenitro was unable to join us due to study commitments.

Upon arriving at my joint we carried the table and chairs down to the function room at the pool area and cracked open our respective ReZEL's/beers. I fired up the barbie while Hemish and Hoardz got cracking on the build.

If you can make out the little portable CD player on the bench, we were listening to a couple of Shifty's mixes. You were there with us in spirit mate!

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1020650.JPG)

I had a quick dip in the pool and then made a start on mine as well.

Hemish pointed out the incredible detail on the face panel below the visor which I had intended to cover with an aurora sticker and made me have second thoughts. He also pointed out that the head is a seamless design similar to that of the RX-78-2 Ver. 2.0, but the white part that goes on the front in the V-Fin position is slightly too short to cover the seam entirely. A little rectangle of pla plate will fix that pretty quickly I imagine.

I coloured in the side vents, vulcans, and mono-eye with silver Gundam marker and a toothpick, and dry brushed the face internals to make the details pop a little bit beneath that visor. Hemish was also kind enough to lend us his 0.3mm drill bit and suggest we all drill the vulcans a little deeper, which made a noticable difference.

There was also the occasional delighted giggle eminating from Hemish's side of the table as he discovered the various engineering marvels of the kit.

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1020666.JPG)

...and this is where we ended up collectively for the day: Mine is on the left, Hemish in the middle, and Hoardz on the right. Hemish should have some better shots of this? Hopefully in Hemish's pics we'll be able to see the dry brushing and the deepened vulcans a bit better :-[ ;D

Hemish left us both for dead, but I had an excuse cos I was cooking, and Hoardz isn't yet accustomed to drinking beer and building gunpla. :D

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1020669.JPG)

We sat around eating, drinking, building gunpla, but mostly talking for a couple of hours until it was time for the boys to head back. It was an enjoyable day spent in good company. Got to get out and catch up with some folks and put some faces to usernames which was really enjoyable. We discussed the possibility of regular Brisbane meets and we three at least are all for it, so look out for the next update from us, hopefully by next month we will all be well into our ReZEL's and we'll have some more pics to share!

Yay! Another one off the mark! :)

Detailing by drawing in some panel lines with a panel line marker and colouring details like the vulcans and pistons with a gundam marker will greatly enhance the appearance of your model if you don't wanna paint. :)

Totally understand after I met the Bloggers of the Apocalypse earlier this year and again in the summer.  Very fun to do the things you love with like minded people.  And also people who know wth you're talking about haha!  For example the difference between rg-91 ReGZ and rg-95 ReZel

Looks like you guys had a hell of a time.  Definitely agree with Buster, working with like minds is awesome and the synergy that comes with it brings new ideas and levels to the build.  

That said, damn that looks nice on the details behind the visor.  I had been thinking about doing an Aurora sticker as well, but now I have to debate how I want to highlight those details to bring them out and pop.

I think if we keep on this line, we will force Buster over the edge, and the soldiers of GAF and the 4 bloggers of the apocalypse shall ride together again with the denizens of the Gunpla allegiance.

Or something like that.

On my end, Iím working my way up actually, trying not to put together parts too tightly but to see firsthand how itíll look.  Especially with the frame, because itís of course got to be painted.  My main concern is the waist/leg joints, as painting around that area will most likely speed up breakage through transforming.  Perhaps it will be good to attempt dry brushing on this frame, rather than painting?  Any thoughts on that?

(http://americansalaryman.files.wordpress.com/2010/11/photo2.jpg)

So just cutting out pieces, sanding down nubs (yeah, finally sanding nubs, like after 2 years of gunpla-ing).  And thinking about the additional areas to detail.  

As for color scheme, with this many people participating, Iím sure weíre going to perhaps have similar colors, so Iím going to thrown mine out there.

While the ReZel is space based only, I figured if something like the Asshimar could do atmospheric flight, than so can the ReZel.  Thusly, Iím doing a Land Use ReZel scheme, with earthy reds for the main color and olive drab for the white.  How will it turn out?  Who knows!

Buster, just one step closer to the edge!  Come good sir, the legions await the final blogger of the apocalypes.   

And yeah, being special is always nice. ;)  The commander version would probably work better with the land/atmosphere use idea since it has the wings, but I was thinking maybe more of a camo style short hops rather than extended flight.  Still, got to paint it first to see if it comes out as good as it is in my head!

C'mon, Buster. You know you wanna.

I finished up the ReZEL the other night and spent some time putting it into its Flight Form.  By spent some time I mean it took me far longer than I originally thought it would.  The transformation is really intricate and involving.  Looks cool once you finally get it there, though.

Rob - liking the colour scheme idea. I think there will be a few similar ideas as well. Haha BOTA x GAF= DOGA. I like it.

Syd - That's an incredible fit. It looks way better than I thought it would transformed. The transformation seems to be something that won't bode well with paint in my mind.

Buster - C'MAAAAAN.

Falldog - Bold idea. I like it. You're the first to mention battle damage.

I'm doing something nice and simple for mine, Gonna use white for a large portion of the kit with blue and grey accents. Gonna shoot for some asymmetry on the blue care of some masking tape, think like the Karaba Assault Zeta.

Finished the torso, a fun build so far. After building a third Unicorn it's good to work on a back to basics kit.

A couple of thoughts...

1) When attaching the two pieces that make up the back, the guide wasn't too clear about how they go together and my first attempt was all wrong. Almost broke the back armor piece.

2) The shoulder-torso clip on the one arm comes off far too easily in on comparison to the other.

3) The hands pop off waaaay to easily.

4) When putting the shoulder armor together, I thought the round stickers looked terrible and was a terrible idea. Upon putting things together with the pink plastic bits, it looks great.

For my battle damaged guy, I'm going to avoid painting this guy and focus on the damage and decals. It'll make a solid tutorial for the Guide.

This kit is just an absolute pleasure to build. I'm enjoying it so much.

Probably partly because of the GB vibe, but also because it is really a fantastic kit. No seam lines (yet), and engineered so cleverly.

It is unlike any other kit I've ever worked on. The parts assemble in such a unique and clever way. I'm really having a lot of fun with this build.

Can't wait to work on it some more!

Sounds like the transformation is going to be a bit of a worry for us painters.  This might be a transform once for pictures and then decide to leave it in one more or another.  The frame also will need a bit of painting too by the looks of all the gray parts showing.

Interestingly, I was considering the opposite. Next to the Endless Waltz Wing, it pales a little in MS form, but I do like it's mobile armor form. :)

Will this game GB continue to the eventual commander release?

I'm going to keep this guy in suit form, and display the commander in flight form.

I realized I still don't understand why suits in space need to transform like this.

It sure will.  The more ReZELs, the merrier.  I think I might turn the Commander type into the War Machine.

Build complete. It's a pretty sexy model and worthy successor to Zeta.

I swapped out my Nu for Sinanju for a Gundam UC themed shelf. Sexy Sinanju takes up way too much space and I hate looking at it since it's the most technically incompetent kit I've built.

I have a ReZEL that can almost stand and a half baked colour scheme. I will be adding some AM thrusters and some pins here and there. Tomorrow if there is time between work and when I go to see Evangelion 2.0 at the cinema I will be stopping in to my hobby store for some mr surfacer 1200, some mr base white, and perhaps a couple of pots of paint as well.

I am going to do a seperate sheet of decals featuring the forum logo and text such as " GAF-GB01" and "TORRINGTON BASE", the 0083 insignias and the standard "caution" signs to fill in any space left on the sheet. I will post images when they are ready and anyone who wants in can join in on a samuel group buy. Just gotta get through the next few weeks first!

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1070240.JPG)

The legs were fun. Loads of detail on those internal frame pieces and on the underside of the blue armour pieces. Way cool. Particularly liked the hip joint assemby where you put one piece in, rotate 90į and attach the next piece. Coolness.

Has anyone else noticed how sharp some of the edges of the pieces are? A couple even had a tiny bit of flash, they went to that fine an edge. I'm thinking there might be some edges that will need c-surfacing after I prime.

Still the most fun kit I have built to date. My wife doesn't like it. She says it has too many angles and sharp edges. She says she likes the older designs because they are more rounded, the newer ones are too angular. The angles and symmetry are probably the main reason I like this design so much.

Totally bad ass.

Even the waist section was entertaining to build! Even the usually the simple, quick, and mundane part that stands between you and a Gunpla that can stand managed to amuse me. Those despruing tweezers came into form with the tiny pieces that comprise the waist V and the white vents at the bottom of the front skirts. Worked a charm.

Might have to rethink adding AM thrusters unless I buy some bigger ones. I remember looking at them on the sprue earlier in the piece and thinking the same thing  but I guess I forgot.

Now on to the backpack and rifle and she's ready for primer.

Very impressed that the only seam is on the rifle. Splendidly engineered and a marvel to build.

Damn straight. Really nicely done. Looks like it has been half melted and half torn off. Totally ballsy as well. I couldn't hack a whole lower leg off my ReZEL even if I had two. Care to hit us with some details on how you went about it?

Bullet holes are nicely done too. Great work mate! What else do you have planned for this guy? A bit of pastel weathering to dirty him up a bit and a nice flat coat would go down a treat I reckon. :)

Yeah, once I made the initial 'incision' I knew that there was no turning back.

I pretty much went to town with a soldering iron. Same with the bullet holes and a few of the other scrapes. I took videos and pictures for the eventual tutorial, so you're just going to have to wait for the details. :p

You nailed it with how I'm going to finish him off. Though, I'm not sure whether I want to use Gundam weathering makers or use pastels. I did the Gundam weathering markers before so I know how it'll come out. When I wrote up a tutorial off of them someone had mentioned using pastels so that's the next logical step. I'm just not sure whether I want to risk 'em on this kit but it'll be good for my guide.

I finally got the pose down. :D

Holy crap I've only just got the frame done and oh god the speedbumps.

You know how I got that new airbrush? Had a few parts from it soaking in thinner to get the paint off...knocked it over and it got on one of the leg parts. SURPRISE, they crumbled in no time. Luckily they were all clean breaks and I've superglued them all back together (Should have taken pics, but as soon as they broke I went in to the zone to fix them) and I'll be doing some painting on the frame tomorrow. expect to see some teaser shots of it+the other goodies I got for it tomorrow night. :)

Post by: ASM on November 16, 2010, 12:03:53 AM
As far as I go, I've not made any painting process past the legs like I last showed you guys, but I've snipped out all the color parts, and am in the process of cleaning them up and getting ready to paint.  Unfortunately, I've got a business trip this weekend to Tokyo, followed by taking the wife to TDS next weekend for her birthday, followed up by getting my new replacement PS3, with my copy of Black Ops and AC: Brotherhood eagerly awaiting it...  so painting the rest of the pieces may be a bit on and off here in the future. 

The good thing about the death of my PS3 per se is that I have knocked out 5 HGUC kits over the last 2 weeks, since I was only doing snap fits for them.  Expect those on the blog soon enough.

Anyways some points about the ReZel  I'm still thinking about is 1) painting the frame around the waist area, considering the last time I painted around joints they snapped off (MG Hi-Nu...) and 2) I'm also thinking about what to do about waterslides.  I may go in with GaiGun to get a resized set of the HG Rezel decals from Samuel Decal.

Also, specific replies

Sonar - I noticed some pieces with flash too, particularly the large leg armor pieces.  A bit surprising, as Bandai is usually good about that.  I also agree I like the sharp angles.  Good, but not overly angular like say Return of Zeta designs (Delta Gundam, Gundam Mk 3?4?)  I like the right curves in places like the Sinanju, but going back and looking at older kits like the Guncannon and I'm just like ugh.  (I just built the GC, so...)

Shifty - I like the drill idea, I may have to do that myself, it's a quick mod.  I think I have AM vulcans somewhere too that I could fit in...

Random - That is a sweet ass line up shot, definitely good for getting us all psyched for doing our best on these kits!

Falldog - That is AWESOME battle damage, and the leg looks freaking sweet, you can almost see the slag coming off there. 

Lupes - The thinner broke the leg pieces? As in it got brittle?  Or you did a Lupes smash through the pieces?  Little confused on how it broke.




Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Sonar on November 16, 2010, 12:41:21 AM
^He knocked over a container full of airbrush parts that were soaking in paint thinner and spilt it all over the leg. Hard thinners & gunpla = X ...Nice save Lupes. When ASM says "Lupes smash!" I see Sheldon with hulk hands.. (for Big Bang Theory fans)

I think the flash is less about sloppy moulds than it is about moulds that are so precise they go to a milli-wafer thin edge.

Fuuu.. What is it with Black Ops killing the GB momentum?

I'm pretty confident Bandai will release MG ReZEL waterslide decals in the near future. I have my eyes peeled.

I'm tearing away at this. By my usually incredibly slow standards I am approaching warp factor 8.

I'm almost ready for primer now and the weather is good for painting.  ;D

Just have to de-seam the rifle and take out the clear red parts and I will be blastin. Picked up some supplies on the weekend too. :)

Rob: Yeah, hard thinners and gunpla are bad. It's like how Gundam Markers  break down kits, sorta of. This was much cleaner breakage though, most I'll have to do is glue the upper thigh together since the peg half-crumbled so the connection isn't rock solid.

Sonar: Are those paints water based? I've got a few of them and I'm wary of using my lacquer thinner with them just in case.

Shifty: Looking good!

As for me, I've realized priming pieces yields results a THOUSAND times better (thanks, V-Dash!), so I'm going to try to work on that later in the day. Juggling two MG kits is tough, but at least Black Ops won't be stealing me away from the project.

Lupes, what kind of paint/thinner are you using?

I'm due for an airbrush upgrade, might spurge when PG SF comes out.
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Sonar on November 16, 2010, 08:01:01 AM
They are Tamiya acrylics Lupes, so they will be thinned with the pictured acrylic thinner or isopropyl alcohol. Don't use lacquer thinner to thin acrylics. That Mr Hobby Colour Thinner represented slightly better value than the Tamiya being as it was a bigger bottle at about the same price. Just realized I forgot to get perhaps the most used colour of all (well technically a shade)... The Gokuri can/bottle will be for flushing my AB.

Mr. Color on both accounts. I had some mr. color in bottles that were flat like the tamiya ones hence the confusion.

Sonar: That's what I've been using for my stuff with no problems, so no worries there.

Couldn't get to painting ReZEL today. Got a handful of V-dash's parts worked on and then everything went haywire (clogs, poor paint mixes, running out of paint because I mad a batch FAR too large when I was first mixing stuff) so now I've had to stop to dismantle my airbrush and clean it. I might still give it a shot later, darkness be damned.

I think you only really need to fully strip and clean your AB at the end of a session. Just flush it with thinners in between batches/colours.

It should be readily available in your favourite store's detail parts section. Perhaps you will find it in Tokyo on the Weekend?

I will be sanding that rifle today and hitting the kit with some primer. The weather has taken a turn for the worse but this will be my last chance for any paint this week so weather be damned. Hoping I can fit it in. I have a busy day. Finish the morning's work, kids swimming lessons start in about 10 min, then grocery shopping, pack and post Mechaskunk Group order, look after kids while mrs goes to gym, hopefully prime the ReZEL while they sleep, and then go to the gym myself.

That's what I thought and both my thinners are the Mr. Color brand...I don't want to cause damage to V-Dash's colors. I might just wait and order more of the car primary Mr. Color from hobbywave. From the look of it I may have to get car primary white for ReZEL anyway.

I like I have said this is my 1st attempt at AB'ing gunpla so still have a long way to go to get a perfect paint job but I am happy with the result of my 1st attempt

I decided not to use any of the lenses except for the bits on his helmet which I painted anyway.

I went with green for the hightlight bits cause it's my favorite colour.

Next up will be his backpack and weapons, then I will need to go in a do some work on the pipes in the rear of the legs try some panel lining, decals and do a few other bits and pieces here and there but I am happy with the way he is coming along  :D

Oh and I mixed the grey's myself which was fun ;D

Samuel decals are very good quality. They are thin, which means you have to be careful not to tear them but they blend with the surface a lot better. They are not pre cut like Bandai decals, you have to cut them yourself.

Somewhere near here (http://maps.google.com.au/maps?hl=en&rls=com.microsoft:en-au:IE-SearchBox&q=Joshin%20Denki%20Gundam's%20nihonbashi%20osaka&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=N&tab=wl)

1st Monday and second Tuesday of the month is thanks day, some surprise items are special price on these days for Joshin point card members (free to join).

You need to go to the second floor to Joshin Kids I think. I never got to go when I was in Osaka so let me know what the range is like ;D

I highly recommend Samuel for anyone who hasn't tried out his decals yet.

I've used 'em for several and will most likely apply these decals to the commander type when it gets released.

Yeah, I've been to Gundam's quite a few times over the last few years.  It used to be neat just because it was two stories of most of the gundam products (plamo, fixfig, RD, DVDs, CDs, especially books and magazines)  that are available.  Unfortunately they had to scale back the Gundam side due to Joshin closing another one of their Nipponbashi stores and moving things around. 

Also, to be honest, Joshin isn't as cheap for most things compared to Yodobashi & Bic, and their actual section of tools, and what not was lacking on the AM parts.  I've not been though at all yet since I moved back to Osaka, and need to spend a Saturday in Nipponbashi scouting out the "good" gundam and hobby stores.  Don't know when that will be but hopefully sometime soon.  Especially if GaiGun can make it out for a weekend here in December like we've been talking.

Thanks for the feedback Sonar, I take that as a very big compliment coming from you... ;D now I am not saying this is a work of art but this model is a testment to the GAF forum and it's members.....

Almost everything I have learnt about gunpla so far has been from the forum. It could have been a topic, a member or a referal to another great gundam info source. The friendly and helpful comments of the GAF members encourage you to get better and want to share your work

Big Up's to all the GAF members  ;D

I agree Sonar a few decals and a small amount of panel lining are up next and then flat coat  8)

I think ReZEL will be about finished for me after that, I am concerned trying to take it any further with my current skill set would just end up making it look worse than better

I will take some more shots when I have finished and have done a base 

I can't wait to see everyone else's take on ReZEL and look forward to all the moments of "Man I wish I had thought of that  :o "

Pulled the pink parts out and de-seamed the rifle, but decided to add a few extra details before priming.

Carving out some segments so the vents I'm adding are a bit countersunk and don't look like they were just stuck on. Gives them a bit of depth when you look into them. Its not all that easy and I've made a bit of a mess. Measured everything and carved carefully with chisels after scribing the lines in and drilling guide holes in each corner. Steep learning curve for me..

Confirmation that ReZEL decals are definitely NOT among the December releases via Gundam Guy (http://gundamguy.blogspot.com/2010/11/december-2010-release-of-gundam-decal.html).

As HLJ suggested in the Official HLJ thread here (http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/index.php/topic,208.msg5354.html#msg5354), they will probably wait for a January release to coincide with the ReZEL Commander MG release.

As mentioned on the previous page, Samuel has a set available. I have greedily ordered some for myself (I just captained 3 group orders in a row, gimme a break!) so I'll let you guys know when they arrive. You can expect they will be top notch.

A bit of a pictorial update on these vents..

Its a bit of a tricky procedure. Pictured below is the gap I was left with at the top and bottom of the countersunk well after gluing the vents in.

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1020751.JPG)


I seem to have gotten a bit carried away and gone right through..

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1020752.JPG)


So I will reinforce the underside with a precision cut ;) piece of pla plate 0.5mm x 6mm x 12.5mm

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1020753.JPG)


In order for the leg armour to fit flush when I resecure it, this part needed to be taken down by about 1mm with the file.

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1020754.JPG)


Comparison shot

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1020755.JPG)


The first vents in the legs I measured and drew a corresponding rectangle on the part. Then I scribed along the edge of my metal ruler with the back of my hobby knife and then began to chisel within the frame I had made. For the backpack I measured out a top and bottom corner point and then stuck the vent on with blu tack and traced around it, then scribed along the edge of my ruler using a scriber and chiseled. Neither technique produced the accuracy I was hoping for and there were a few slips and gouges I had to fill with putty.

Pic of how I marked it out

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1020758.JPG)


Modelled by the lovely Airi

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1020761.JPG)


My helpers

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1020765.JPG)


So I learnt my lesson and didn't go as deeply with the backpack. It still looks pretty rough but it will scrub up ok.

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1020767.JPG)


This is where I ended up last night.

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1020769.JPG)


All up maybe 4-5 hours work in these vents so far. I will not countersink the chest vents as there's too much chance of something going wrong that I may not be able to fix, and it's probably a lot of effort for little gain. The chest vents are viewed front on and look great just glued on, whereas the backpack and leg vents are viewed side on and I think they will look way better if they don't look like they were glued straight on to the surface.

Next is sanding and finishing the vents, marking and drilling some pin holes, and primer.

I think all the extra effort will really pay off mate the legs are big surfaces and the vents will break them up really well, amd the back pack well thats just gonna look sick

Post by: Sonar on November 29, 2010, 10:01:43 PM
Thank you Busterbeam, Shifty, and Freya. :)

Spent a good portion of this evening wrestling the vents, sanding, reputtying air pockets, et al.. Actually found those sanding twigs from Micro Mark useful in defining edges on the vents, or moreover a portion of one.

Just got done with the legs and waiting for the putty to cure a bit on the backpack and that part will be thankfully over. I have reputtied the backpack for the third time and had to give up on my trusty mr dissolved putty for some Tamiya basic grey as the gap on one edge of one of them was just a fraction too big to fill nicely with the mr dissolved. A shame thougfh as it is much quicker drying and easier to work with (softer).

I also drilled a couple of holes for the screws I will be adding and to test out Mechaskunk's drill bits. They are a few hundredths of a millimetre off what they are supposed to be (I measured them with my calipers) but I will forgive them that. ;)

Hopefully tomorrow night I can get done with the sanding and drilling and be ready for some primer.

I really wanted to cover the conductive hoses on the backs of the legs with the fibreglass braided sleeve I got from Mechaskunk, but getting it on there and getting the parts to fit flush seem to be a bit beyond my grasp. Anyone got any suggestions? As the sleeve is too narrow in diameter I will need to use an extra long piece to stretch over the part but I want it to fit on seamlessly at the top and bottom. The best way to acieve this will be to cut the parts, but I'm concerned about the length of the parts after they have had close to 1mm cut out of them in the cutting process, and also the structural integrity of the parts afterwards. That's why it's going in the too hard basket, unless anyone has any brilliant ideas?
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Hemish on November 29, 2010, 10:05:24 PM
cut sleeve to length

cut the part short
 -----/----------\-----

Place the sleeve over, bunch it up in the middle, put in place, glue and then push the sleeve over the join

Thats the way I'd do it
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Sonar on November 29, 2010, 10:10:26 PM
Due to the nature of the sleeve it needs to be tucked under on both ends or it will just look ishty. I've been going over this for a while in my head. I know the solution, but I'm hoping for one that doesn't require as much work :D

Post by: ASM on December 01, 2010, 02:33:25 PM
Present sir!

So I've been a bit behind due to tons of trips to Tokyo lately, and my new PS3 and
Black Ops.  In particular, me and GaiGun have been playing nightly for the last few days and that's definitely cutting in on my gunpla and blogging time.  But I am planning on priming and painting this Sunday if weather is good.  Other than that though, I'm still off to Tokyo this Friday and Monday, and next weekend as well so this Sunday will be the big painting chaince for the time being. 

I didn't have much time to look for AM parts in Akiba this last time, but checking both Yellow Submarine and Yodobashi, and neither of them have snake chains.  So I think I'm going to ask Gaigun to pick me up some from HLJ and get them from him when we meet next week. 

With that said, Lupes, what diameter chains did you use?  Did you actually replace the pipes with the chains, or cut them off and slide them on and reglue them?  I figure if I do snake chains, then I should probably go ahead and do AM thrusters as well.  Thankfully, not as many as the Sinanju, so I should have some in my tool box and don't have to buy more.

Sonar, I like the modes you did on the leg pieces there, the vent idea looks very good!  Awesome helpers too.  I can see you'Re going to have a hard time of is as they get older.  Look into investing in a shotgun around the time Airi is in highschool to keep the boys away!  :D

Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Sonar on December 01, 2010, 04:58:51 PM
Yes I have a shotgun fund.

Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: lupes on December 01, 2010, 09:04:22 PM
I don't have the package any more, but IIRC they're like 2.5mm. You can ask GG, he'd know for sure. I had to hack the old plastic pipe off entirely and do some dremeling to make them fit nicely so maybe a 2mm would be a better fit.

Still prepping armor parts for priming. Got my Mr. Spare bottles today so that should make like easier.
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Sonar on December 01, 2010, 09:24:32 PM
I reckon if anything go bigger, like 3mm. The stock pipes are pretty big and if you go too narrow it won't look good.

Haha Mr Spare Bottle.. Such a redunadant name.. Should be something like Mr Ratio Bottle or Mr Specimen Jar. Mr Genetic Preservation Bottle.

I'll stop now. :P

I've been having an all out battle with one of the vents on the backpack. I must have filled the same gap at least half a dozen times and each time I sand it back there has been an air bubble. Giving me a right royal case of the ishs it is. Top that off with trying to expedite the putty drying under my lamp and warping two parts, overdrilling one of the holes, and today being rainy and humid as hell I am one unhappy camper. So now I have another few hours of repair work ahead of me before I even look like laying some primer, which I had every intention of doing today dammit :(

So, I ran into some sort of disaster.

After spending an hour plus on my first attempt at pastel weathering, I put everything down and attempted a top coat. The top coat pulled a vanishing act on my pastels. Now it looks like I never started. Worse in some parts.
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: TheGhostofZeon on December 07, 2010, 03:07:20 PM
What sort of clear did you use? I know some lacquer based clears aren't that good over the top of acrylics or pastels (I look at you Tamiya!!).

Pictures tonight.

Think about how a dusty/dirty car looks after getting hit with some drizzle. Subsequent coats helped the over all look, helping in that it's not as noticeable from a distance.

I used Testor's Dull on top. Would Mr Color be better? I think I have some left.
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Falldog on December 08, 2010, 11:32:46 AM
Okay, here's the damage. Not sure if it can be fixed other than stripping all the pieces down.

I did a little experiment on the back. The side on the right is a result of a couple light coats. The side on the left is the result of one heavy coat.

I reckon its pretty sweet. It's only in the mega close up pics that you can really see the speckling anyway. I still reckon you could remedy it by smearing around some more pastel.
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone

You might be able to use polishing compound to reduce that effect from the topcoat.

Post by: Falldog on December 09, 2010, 02:14:20 AM
Well it was considerably better weathered/darker prior to the top coat sucking up all the pastels.

I'm going to re-pastel tonight, but if I can't seal it...

Awesome job Falldog, I actually like how the weather effects came out on the back thruster flaps. 

As for me, I think weekend business trips are done for the rest of the year, and this is a good thing.  The ReZel is currently my weekend project in that I can only paint on the weekends.  So my plan is to work on the PG Strike during the weekdays, and ReZel on the weekends, and trying to squeeze in an hour of Black Ops online with GaiGun before hitting the sack. 

While weekend business trips are done for a while, unfortunately the Japanese year end parties have started, so I don't now how much I'll get done on the PG Strike now!

Anyways, current status is painted parts halfway done, just got to finish the white parts and the rest of the blue parts.  Will be attempting to do that this weekend if weather is good.

I also made some progress! (Yes, I know.  Finally.  I deserve any snide comments coming my way.) 

I had previously disassembled the ReZEL in preparation for painting but then realized I have a lot of scribing to do and I need to know whereabouts to do it so I put the ReZEL back together last night and spent some time comparing it to pictures of the Iron Man.  I've penciled in some preliminary lines and for the most part it should go smoothly. If I scribe smoothly, that is.

I've started planning out the LED and also.. Here. I'll show you.

I'm glad someone had the stones to cut off its boner.

Gaijin an excellent tip was dropped about using label maker tape (dymo tape) to guide your scribing in this great turorial (http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/index.php/topic,250.0.html) by GoZ, and if it is your first time scribing be aware that a lot can go wrong pretty easily. One slip can be a pain to fix and beleive me you will slip. Not to be smug but I just don't want you to hit any snags ;) (no snide remark ;))

Post by: Gaijin Gunpla on December 15, 2010, 06:04:57 PM
hey Sonar,

I know I will be making mistakes.  And I've even tried this before!

I attempted it quite a long time ago with my F91.  http://www.gaijin-gunpla.com/f91-gallery/ (http://www.gaijin-gunpla.com/f91-gallery/)

I made some pretty egregious mistakes and had to work extra to fix them. Probably because of that I held off trying it again, but I definitely shouldn't shy away from it when the situation demands it.  Gundam Guy was nice enough to send me the kind of tape he recommended so I am already one step ahead of the first time I tried it.

Falldog,

I have a Hasegawa saw scriber set which I used before but don't really like the sawing action.  I picked up a tool used to slice through acrylic (IIRC) and will probably be using that.  Wish me luck.

I just posted WIP#2 on my site.
http://www.gaijin-gunpla.com/g-a-f-rezel-group-build-project-2/ (http://www.gaijin-gunpla.com/g-a-f-rezel-group-build-project-2/)

Definitely looking forward to the time off at the end of this year.

Started putting stuff together last night.  Looks like I'll need to do some touch ups on a few pieces, especially the insdie of the giant wing binders as they are more visible than I thought they would be, as well as painting the few bits and pieces of the inner armor that show, but it's coming together well.

Happy New Years all! 

All thatís left is just decals and panel lining, which Iím not sure Iíll do at this point, but I am for all intents and purposes done for the time being.

The only downside is that I seemed to have lost the tiny V that goes on the cod piece there, so I may just putty something in.  In other news I actually had major breakage of the lower torso armor when trying to take it off, thankfully it doesnít show up in the pictures depending on how I take them.  Iím getting a replacement part so Iíll replace it down the line.

Overall impressions on my land/air use ReZel is that well.. it really does look like the rocky road of ReZelís doesnít it?  I was fairly impressed by the brown, but itís a lot of brown huh.  But the dark red looks gorgeous and thatís a color Iím going to have to use again down the line. 

Other thoughts is that transformation is pretty much a no-go after painting.  Considering how tight some of the chest pieces come together, I see damage happening already if trying to move things around, so my ReZel is staying in mobile suit mode.

Lastly, I really like how the ReZel looks actually without the backpack/thrusters/wings thing.  Dunno, just I think it looks better that way without the towering centeral vernier or whatever over itís head.

Freya, Iím liking that color scheme.  Tron ReZel?

Lupeís, that AB work is looking nice!  Looking forward to the finished product.

Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone

It's just straight paint actually, though priming isn't a terrible idea. I did prime some of the parts with Mr. Surfacer 1200 and there's little to no difference between the ones I did prime and the ones I didn't.

and here go the dick jokes... :D

Someone a dozen or so pages back I think said that they liked the wang and it was part of what made the design great, and I came to agree with that nugget of wisdom. I was thinking of giving my ReZEL a bit of gender reassignment surgery until I read that.

I'm pretty much still stuck on the same piece that I warped. All I really need to do is sand it and cut my losses but instead I took a break and snapped up my 1/48 ANA Gundam (which is um, awesome!), finished off snapping my PG Astray which I finished up liking more than I thought I would, and started snapping my PG 00 Raiser. Kinda got a bit burned out on the Cima Gelgoog and the ReZEL due to the never ending god forsaken sanding.

I'm kinda really into the big boys right at the moment but Lupe's near completion and GaiGun's imminent completion is firing up my ReZEL passion again..

Hey Hemish and Hoardz let's get together again and do some ReZEL work shall we? You guys have been suspiciously absent from this thread for a while... ;D

I finally have something to show of my work.  After putting it back together and awaiting the replacement part it is finally complete. I'll have some stuff up on the site soon (I hope).

Hello everyone!

I'm new here but I'll properly introduce myself later ^^;.

Hope you don't mind me joining the party this late. Got my ReZEL and I'm already hammering it out :D
(http://img151.imageshack.us/img151/5218/img7898r.jpg)

Just straight building it for now so nothing special and definitely nowhere near as cool as the custom painted ones others are pumping out haha.

More to report later. It's 2:30 am right now so it's time to snooze. Goodnight!

Thanks Sonar! 

I was going to make a post on my site wrapping up the ReZEL but I wanted to do it here instead as the whole point of me building it was to participate here.  I have been sporadic with my contributions to the thread and while some of it is due to me being busier than ever with work, etc., there is another aspect which perhaps I didn't allude to in my posts here or on my site.  Mainly, it's that I started getting frustrated with the process of making Iron Man ReZEL.

When I hacked off ReZEL's thang, I had envisioned using plastic and putty to make a replacement piece, and the plastic worked well enough but my putty work is lacking and the result, while not visible in my gallery photos for the most part (which is intentional) is still noticeable.
(http://www.gaijin-gunpla.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/IMG_5728.jpg)
You can also see where the paint didn't go on well.

The next frustration that came my way was the face mask.  The gold went on fine, then I masked and sprayed the clear red coats.  When it came time to remove the masking tape the small piece for the bottom of ReZEL's face snapped.  Yes, snapped from removing masking tape.  As I had already painted, masked, and painted and I didn't wish to wait for replacement parts, I glued it together and luckily it didn't turn out too terrible.
(http://www.gaijin-gunpla.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/IMG_5720.jpg)

After I had painted all the pieces, I noticed that the gold parts for the backpack had red spots on them.  I must have sprayed the red in too close a proximity to the already gold painted parts.  I even tried repainting the gold pieces but there is still some red there. Perhaps no one but me will notice.
(http://www.gaijin-gunpla.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/IMG_5730.jpg)

I had written how I wanted to install an LED.  (I was actually hoping everyone forgot that part, ;) )   Well, that plan did not come to fruition.  When I was assembling the kit after painting to see how the panel lines lined up, etc, trying to get the hatch cover in place caused a piece to snap.  Aargh.  I didn't want to order parts from Bandai (remember this point), and in the back of my mind I still wanted this kit to transform which meant taking up the space in the chest with a battery would prohibit that so I glued the hatch back in place pretty much eliminating any possibility of an LED being used there.
While I was gluing that hatch back in place some glue must have gotten on my finger because, as I was pressing the glued pieces together, some red paint came off on my thumb.  I used a gundam marker to color over the exposed gold.
(http://www.gaijin-gunpla.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/IMG_5720a.jpg)

As I was putting the final subsections of the kit together I had a little problem with the arm joints.  Well, make that a big problem.  The small joints in the shoulders broke, thus rendering it unable to transform properly. Sigh.  As there are two sets of joints per arm due to the transformation engineering the arms stay on the kit and stay in place but I can't go too crazy with any poses otherwise I risk having the arms fall off never to be put back on.  I am thinking it is the black paint that weakened these pieces causing them to break easily. 

Ironically, as I kept refraining from ordering parts to fix it because i was so close to being finished and I had a lot of other projects going on at the time, I lost a piece and had to send away for replacement in order to finish this project.

There it is.  I am glad I finished this kit despite all the tribulations it caused near the end.  That said, the latter part of the project wasn't as enjoyable as the first and I feel mine doesn't measure up to some of the other ReZEL's found in this thread.  I am grateful, however, for the chance to be part of it.

edit: I might just post this over on my site as it reads pretty well.

things i need to not do: let my ab sit for a week or two between uses. so much paint to clean out...good job lupes. On the upside Alclad II Airbrush cleaner is the most brutal stuff on the planet and it only took about ten minutes.

(http://i54.tinypic.com/zmxwsn.jpg)

My masking isn't nearly as good as GaiGun's, but I should be finishing up the blue on the arms and legs today, just gotta figure out how I'm gonna mask off the torso still.

(http://i55.tinypic.com/23kuqs1.jpg)

Backpack parts should be done being painted white today, I still need to mask areas of those off for blue once they've got their white done. Speaking of white, painting it is less of a hassle with an airbrush but damned if it doesn't chip really easy.

PS: Yes, those are special K bars. They're delicious, don't hate.
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Sonar on February 19, 2011, 08:05:33 AM
I think what we need with that white is several rock hard coats of clear coat to retard the chipping.

The figures in the last shot look pretty sweet, are they Master Sargeant or something?

Hey did you finish your Samus?

I have actively working on this kit (or trying to) since November thus making this the slowest WIP for me bar none I do believe. Doesn't surprise me since my life has been hectic lately though.

(http://i53.tinypic.com/29mltac.jpg) (http://i51.tinypic.com/160budc.jpg)

Eventually, there will be many clear flat coast to seal up all of my hard work. I realize now I'll have to take the metallic orange bits out beforehand so I'll probably do that nowish. I've got the backpack 80% done, I really need to get my aftermarket parts for the thrusters in so I can finish it up.

The statue is the one that came with the legendary edition of Halo: Reach, so they're spartans but not the Master Chief.

She's still waiting on a clear blue panel line. I need to do something about the joints now, it falls apart far too easy.

Disco. Can do! Nice spot on the shield, that was exactly where I grabbed the idea from. Figured I'd have the ReZEL have a little should out to Amuro in it. The PG SF will be much more Hi-Nu inspired than just the shield on this guy...but I need to finish this and Astraea before I dig in to that.

Well folks thanks to a productive few hours on skype chatting with various GAF and MAC members from around the world I am glad to say I have overcome the issue of the warped piece (read: cut your losses) and now my ReZel is ready for primer.

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1030180.JPG)

All holes for the screws I got from the GAF Mechaskunk Closing Down Group Order have been drilled and I can't see myself making any more forseeable mods.

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1030185.JPG)

Here are some pics of the piece I warped from slightly different angles.

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1030183.JPG)

Basically I had a whole lot of trouble countersinking those vents (turned out there was a much easier method) and getting rid of air pockets in the putty.

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1030182.JPG)

Long story short I got a bit frustrated and started holding bits under my light to try and cure the putty quicker. Bad move. Warped the backpack..

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1030181.JPG)

I did manage to reheat and straighten it out a bit and smoothed it over with some putty, but the whole process put a big kill on my motivation and momentum.

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1030184.JPG)

I think I covered that up pretty well. Don't you? ;D

Would really love to have this guy finished by the time I go to Japan in April so I'm setting myself that goal. Wish me luck! :)

;D :haro:

I did some of the shiny stuff today and some of that needs to be redone, not really happy with it, and that dam rifle!!!

Yes I wanted to be lazy

On the plus side they shipped it out with free postage so that was a plus.
Will just have to wait and see how their customer service is.

Well they got back to me and are shipping out the correct bottle, I should have it tomorrow so hopefully on Wednesday I can do the inner frame.

Got the rest of the outside painted though.

Rifle parts painted and ready to be masked off after seams were fixed, again alclad chrome, they are going to be masked later tonight
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v204/Hemish/gunpla/paint004.jpg)
Now I'm tossing up on two colours for the clear parts, they wont be clear when its finished but I think they will look good
At the moment I'm leaning more towards the hotmetal red as it will give more contrast than the blue, what do you guys think?
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v204/Hemish/gunpla/paint003.jpg)
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v204/Hemish/gunpla/paint002.jpg)
This is the basic colour set, deck tan, ja green and olive green for the external parts and alclad chrome and jet exhaust for the rest of it
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v204/Hemish/gunpla/paint006.jpg)

More to come after the paint arrives

Looking awesome mate, really enjoy your work

@ Sonar
Yeah mate, been popping in and out. Uni over summer and this semester have both been really full on, although im preaching to the converted, knowing how busy all of you guys are. I pulled the rezel out the other day and have it all snapped except for backpack. Will make a concentrated effort, missing out on all the fun around here!

Thanks guys, put the thing back together today, had a few hiccups along the way a couple of places where paint scratched, namely on chest when putting in the red part on the right and a couple spots on the elbow inner frame when moving it, oh well shouldnt be too hard to fix.
Anyways here are a couple pics till I get lighting sorted out and can take them properly

I've kinda been in a bit of a gunpla lull lately but I've gone back to my PG 00 Raiser and finished sanding the remaining clear foot pieces with 5 different grades of sandpaper, built the unicorn action base plus one of the gatling sets and had fun displaying that so I'm kinda back into my unicorn at the moment. I should get the ReZEL out and sand back the primer drip and start painting it though right?
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Wolfman X on April 14, 2011, 11:38:07 AM
up to you. i still have to prime the next buncha parts i got on the alligator clips but the weather has been craptacular so cant use the airbrush at all

FYI I am now closer than I have ever been. You won't be satisfied until I finish the God from your original GAF 1.0 GB will you? That's what alll this is about. ;D Yes I do have the Sinanju, Unicorn, ReZEL, and Beargguy to finish for the sake of GB completion also.

Well I spent most of yesterday disassembling and shoving bits onto sticks. Much like you Hemish that was a session unto itself and by the time I got to the legs I'd had enough. Priming illustrated some cracks in the putty around my vents so I filled them for like the tenth time. Also fixed the head seam and did some masking on the rifle, shield, and something else which I forget what it was now.

InB4POIDH..

Pics later as time permits. ;D

Post by: Sonar on April 16, 2011, 10:22:01 PM
Will be nice to have you on board Zen.

Okie dokes heres a few pics to tide you over.


Here's where we'll be working today, today being yesterday, making tomorrow today  ???

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1030311.JPG)


....and here is what made it on to the work bench for a few snaps. How many kits parts do I have on my workbench??

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1030304.JPG)


The culprit in question, now primed with Mr. White Surfacer. More of a Mr. Light Grey Surfacer IMO ;D

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1030306.JPG)


A couple of shots of fixing the head seam, and the vents from hell which I have puttied and reputtied to the point where I want to scream.

This idea with the head is a bit experimental and if it goes wrong I'm boned, and the best part is I won't know until after the painting is done. Yippee!  :-X

Here's what I did: Applied aurora film to the clear pink part that makes the visor, then carefully masked and trimmed the masking, and sealed the part inside the helmet with a seam weld. The potential for catastrophy lies in damaging the aurora film either while trimming the masking or while attempting to remove it later. Parts of the masking tape may get stuck inside the helmet... Wish me luck. If I pull it off it will look sicko. If it all goes pear shaped I could be in trouble. Contrary to what I thought, the aurora film is largely transparent.

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1030312.JPG)

You can see even in these dodgy snaps what a difference it made to drill a bit of depth into those vulcan barrels.

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1030313.JPG)


Here would be about where time and patience started to get the better of me, having spent a solid 5 hours disassembling, masking, and sticking parts on to sticks in order of what limb they correspond to and what colour they will end up. I managed to whittle it down to just the waist and legs before calling it a day.

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1030315.JPG)


...and this is what's skewered ready to paint. That beautiful afternoon Queensland weather is looking just about right for a beer.  ;D

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1030314.JPG)

Ok so that brings the extra work so far to here:

Drilling depth into the vulcan barrels
Adding vents to the sides of the legs, part of the frame being gutted to accommodate the countersinking so that the vents have dimension and depth to them and don't just look as though they were "Glued on".
Adding vents to the torso
Adding vents to the backpack, also countersunk, and fixing the part I warped in the seemingly endless process of trying to get the edges puttied perfectly
Holes drilled strategically for placement of mechaskunk slotted screws
Head seam removed
Masking visor, top of shield, and parts of rifle

oh and I also have some decals from samuel for this guy. I will probably end up using a mixture of those and the dry transfers. Next is paint. ;D

:haro:

Bonus shot of how my unicorn is shaping up. One set of gatlings down, 2 to go ;D

Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Sonar on April 17, 2011, 08:16:17 PM
Started running out of room for parts the other day and also out of alligator clips so today I managed to sneak in a few hobby related items into the family day out shopping. Also snagged Terminator 4 and Dark Night BD's for $16 each (Yay JB!) ;D

It is getting disgustingly hard to source good alligator clips now that Dick Smith is an electronics store as opposed to a store that sells electronics related components. Will have to look online or in Jaycar I guess.

anyhows..

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1030316.JPG)

Chopping board was from Stacks (discount variety store) and the craft bottles were a steal at $2. They seem as though they will be good for paint mixing and look fairly airtight. Alligator clips from the second Dick Smith I tried @ 63c each were fairly steep and not as good quality as the ones I got a year or two back. Whoever has the good source for these things please give it up.

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1030317.JPG)

Some help sanding from the lovely miss Airi :-*

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1030324.JPG)

...and after 15 minutes of drilling, a few minutes sanding, and about 10 minutes crimping alligator clips onto skewers, we have ourselves another parts holder.

Now to go finish pulling apart those legs...

Stay tuned..

Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Hemish on April 17, 2011, 08:35:56 PM
Thats actually a good idea, I might have to try that
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Sonar on April 17, 2011, 08:39:22 PM
You sound surprised? :P

Chopping board was $12 from stacks, but any lump of wood will do. Protip: if you have a drill that plugs into an outlet it will be WAY faster than if you use a cordless. 15 minutes vs HOURS. Hardest bit is drilling the holes vertically straight. Some of my skewers stick out at odd angles.
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Hemish on April 17, 2011, 08:48:21 PM
Need to get one of those drills with the level in them, they are cool, I'm sure my dad has one will have to ask him next time i'm over there.

painted, and assembled the armos feet, side skirts and rear skirts. currently wrapped in bubble wrap till i can find time to take happy snaps. cant wait for my VERY long holidays from good friday. i can work on the damn thing even more. on the plus side, i found my drill bits and did drill those holes on the vulcans a bit deeper

Post by: tristan on April 18, 2011, 07:51:46 AM
@Sonar...Ive just ordered a batch of clips off ebay. 10 for $1.35+free postage. They are from Hong Kong so Ill let you know how they go. I have also used clips which are used for making badges and hair clips (they are an alligator clip on one side and are flat on the other....Im sure your girls have hair clips with this clip in it so you can see what I mean!) which surprising cheap and work well if you use good super glue to attach onto sticks. Again, a bulk buy off ebay if you search for 'alligator clips' (not sure why these come up but they do). You probably could get them at a craft store as well.

I like the board idea. Im using high density foam (leftovers from our underfloor insulation). Worlds most expensive styrofoam but its really good!! (doesnt fall apart like the usual stuff when you punch holes in it)

so what i gotten from dick smith was probbaly their last of their gator clips. well in the end as long they do their job of holding parts then im satisfied. only thing good about dicksmith is their presale prices of stuff like starcraft 2 ( at the time the price was stupidly cheap upon release) and the 3 week old 3ds. otherwise everything else they have for sale is kinda meh

My clips turned up today. Ordered on the 11 and here by 19th. Not too shabby for free post from HK.
I bought some from Dick Smith last year and these are exactly the same but 50 cents cheaper / clip!!

Sweet dude, cheers for the link. they are exactly the same as the ones I got on the weekend. I actually preferred the old stock which were twice the size and had a rounded fitting that was easier to crimp. I'll be picking up another hundred of those though for sheezy.

i think a total of 95 clippers in my stash aint enough. before it was 42 clippers and i knew damn well it wasnt enough. will look into getting more before i get on with another project after my rezel commander. cant wait for my 10 days of holidays which will mostly be spent building this sucker up to standing position cannon and all.

as for my upcoming project, i scrapped my current mg sinanju and will go with something similar to this.

as i prefer to be a wee bit different like what i did with my unicorn mg and im not too fond with painting trims.
anyway its just an idea as i still got another GB to accomplish xD

back to the topic at hand. I will definately get pics up when the holiday begins

shut up  ;D! i just changed from telstra to optus. only reason why im capped coz i got a sibling at home whose a webcam whore. the day i caught her on it after finding out she used 11 gigs i gave her a good wording and then some. next time it be her webcam under my foot in pieces

but on the plus side, it makes people such as yourself eager on what im doing with my rezel ^^
ill be uncapped on sunday at least but in the meantime it gives me a ton of time to work on the commander. hopefully with the 7 days i got left ill get most if all finished. though the current snag im in is with the beam long cannon which has a few seams i would need to work. most notibly on the underside. shouldnt be a hard feat for me to do ( i hope)

It's a way off unfortunately. That took me all day, and they need one or two more coats. A couple of pieces may need to be stripped and redone, and I still have 3 more colours to go. Being that the bulk of the pieces are done I'm feeling as though I have gotten a bit accomplished, but it is unlikely this will see reassembly before I get back from Japan.
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Wolfman X on April 26, 2011, 09:14:43 AM
And im left with the long beam launcher and then its onto the fun part being the weathering n decaling. I have hit a snag when i reassemble the feet onto the legs n i snapped them small pega which were supposed to run on a track on the upper ankle joint. Now it stands a bit shorter but it looks alright standing. Besides the thing is bulky enough sideways with its wings and that long beam saber lol

Post by: Sonar on April 26, 2011, 06:16:42 PM
For the record: Mr. White Surfacer and Mr. Surfacer do not behave in the same way. In my experience it is my conclusion that Mr. White Surfacer should be used over Mr. Surfacer rather than straight onto bare plastic. Mr White Surfacer doesn't have the cover and self levelling properties of Mr. Surfacer and will not cover all of the C-surfaces and panel recesses as effectively. Also have learnt that when sanding back primed parts it would be beneficial to re-prime before trying to paint a lighter shade onto dark plastic. Two rookie mistakes that will cost me some hours of stripping and repainting a number of pieces but a valuable lesson nonetheless. Also will need to strip a few pieces where the paint ran. I think I might have the mix a little too thin. Also the orange is coming up a bit yellower than I'd have liked. I may finish with a coat of clear red to lustre it up a bit. :nopic:

Anyway thanks for your comments. Hopefully it does turn well after completing everything. But im so tempted to wotk on that wing ka. The thing needs a paintjob now after preparing all the parts. I should do a wip for the wing ka instead....

well the main reason why i bought the commander was to make the gatling mod which is why i went and purchased the gatlings through the hobbymate gb, but then saw the motorized gatlings in hlj ( thanks to gundam guys blog leading to its release)

well if thats the case, then i might as well take it to the last stretch but will be on hiatus for a wee bit due to wanting to complete a few other kits which ive mentioned. realized i need to remask the lense on the cannon as well as the extension arm which have been chromed which i will be spraying it this time

I haven't written the review yet but you guys can see it first since this is where it began. Please don't be disappointed that it is in stock colors though. However, I did added my own little touch-ups. :D

Warning: Lots of photos ^^;

Hi Z! Glad to see another completed ReZEL, and a stunning one no less! I'm actually really pleased to see a stock colour entry into the GB. Excellent work from the quiet achiever!

Just a little spot where the paint has pooled on the side of one knee perhaps you could hit that with a 2000 grit wet sand without affecting the paint job too much?

I know I shouldn't be surprised by how incredible and dynamic your poses are, and by how nicely you have used light and shadow in your photography (Z literally wrote the manual on these things), but darn it I'm truly impressed once again. I've always considered myself to be good at posing and I've had a lot of practice, but I've learnt quite a bit from you. Thank you!

Great ReZEL mate. Really nice work. Thanks for sharing! ;D

@Sonar thanks man! Haha you're giving me too much credit here ^^;. I didn't paint the ReZEL; I merely just straight built it, painted the face gray, and replaced the green parts with the red ones, then topcoat. Again, nothing fancy like what everyone else is doing. And exactly where is this spot that you spotted? I can't see it hehe.

The second one is to be painted in exactly the same colours as the first one, except it will be shaded and have the decals added and the panel lines done.

It was mentioned once I posted the finished rezel that I should have decal'd it and done the panel lines, so I figured why not and got the second when it was on sale at hlj, wasnt even 3000yen at the time.

Its primed now so I might start pulling it apart ready for paint tomorrow

I just responded to your post in the Grunt MS GB. You would probably do better to stick your build in this alone, instead of doing the same kit in two different Group Builds, seems a bit unnecessary unless you are planning to do two ReZELs.

Just started my ReZEL kit and am really enjoying it so far.

So breezy compared to zoid and just good to be back on gunpla.

No painting or anything special on this kit, just an out of the box build.
Pics up as soon as am done. :)

ReZEL is not a grunt unit, moreover a specialist team. Grunt is defined by mass production, which to date the ReZEL does not enjoy.

As Z_N says, stick it here in the RGBP.

Shadow I hope you enjoy the build as much as I did. this was my favourite gunpla kit to build to date.

Find the closest match, test it on some unused sprue, and hope for the best?

Nice one Wolfman!

I will make an effort to get back to my ReZEL ASAP.

Have to say it is one the best, nicest and smoothest builds I have undertaken.

Plus it looks so smooth and unique compared to the other kits.
Bloody huge too!
Didn't expect it to be so big, even without the jet pack.

Only weapons and shields left, so will post pics soon. :) \m/

The grey will actually be black ;D just did it that way to make it easier to view.

I've lost a polycap from my GM sniper, it's PC I from the PC-122 polycap sprue and looking through all the instruction sheets on Dalong's site I've found that the ReZel & ReZel Commander have the same Polycap sprue that the Sniper uses and they don't use any I polycaps.

Would it be possible to scrounge one from someone please?

All the parts are off the runners that are going to be painted and have some of the painting done with parts brought in from the outside to dry. This kit has convinced me to get an airbrush for sure.

Hi guys, I'm a new member here. Glad to join up and meet you all gunpla fans in this forum.

I just found out about this ReZEL group build and I happen to have one finished just a couple days ago, so I humbly shared this one.

Nothing fancy, only a straight build and a little attempt on weathering. But I'm pretty satisfied, I was worried about the unusual color of this kit, but it turned out great. Props to Bandai.  :D

@Senpriw. Nice work on the rezel, looks like he has seen his share of battle. What materials did you use for your weathering? Which metals did you use for chipping?

Like I said before, its nothing fancy actually and pretty simple. I only used dry brushing with flat black and chrome silver enamels, and I didn't do any chipping...where did you see the chips haha. Oh and also a gun metal enamel on the frames.

Wow... That's amazing weathering senpriw! Makes me want to grab some 409 and some rags to clean it up.

And for some reason, it somehow reminds me of the TARDIS from Doctor Who... The older, less up-kept ones from before the 2005 revival.

Hey Randomguy7737, see on that pic how the edges of the figure appear darker and have a 'shadow' thats the idea behind the preshade, is it gives the paint a little more pop and is generally seen to be a bit more realistic when you are talking scale.

See how in the below pic, I didnt preshade, all I had was straight colours, the idea this time around is to give it a bit more definition
You start painting in the centre of the part and then work your way out making the coat lighter as you hit the edges so as not to cover the preshade colour completely.

(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v204/Hemish/gunpla/gunpla044.jpg)

I'm sure if you checked out GOZ's website he will have a tutorial up on how to do the preshade and how it works.

If you need anyhelp with it let me know and i'll do my best to help you out.
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone

Amazingly, I don't have a shading tutorial yet but there will be one in the near future next time I do it on a build.

In the meantime, there is a little on the subject here (gamerabaenre's tutorial) : http://gamerabaenre.com/?page_id=1329

Great progress from the next round of participants! Great to see the ReZEL GB is still going strong.

I've hit a bit of a snag again with my ReZEL and it looks like I will be stripping and repainting all of the orange pieces. Lesson learned though so it will be worthwhile.

In the mean time I'll be concentrating on my Beargguys. :beargguy:

You can probably have mine. It's unassembled, though. As in, the whole kit is unassembled. I can twist the pieces off the sprue for you or something. ;)

I'll have to have a look at it when I'm home, and go through my collection'o'stuff for an alt weapon for him. The bazooka thing is too big anyway.
Maybe I'll mod another koto gatling for him or something.  ;D

That booth is sweeeeet. Looks like you need a mirror or an extra lamp bringing light back up from beneath at the front. The light sources are at the side right? A couple of thos shots the model is casting a shadow over itself which could be negated with a bit of tricky $2 shop mirror work.

Falldog I would greatly appreciate some extra Unicorn mags. I'm still looking for an extra shield if you have one to spare? I can trade you a 1/60 Aile pack or Sword Pack from the Real Detail 1/60 Striker Weapons system kit or something else from my spare parts box if you like?

I Had a busy weekend! I got my new work area in the living room set up with more table and shelf space!

(http://i561.photobucket.com/albums/ss51/skyshatter_warrior/P1010102.jpg)

And was able to finish the painting and start assembling the parts to my ReZEL!

(http://i561.photobucket.com/albums/ss51/skyshatter_warrior/P1010109.jpg)

After getting them this far and clear coating, I was able to do the panel lining and Decals over the last few nights. Being my first Master Grade Kit, it was my first experience with ry transfer decals and though I messed two of em up, they were not nearly as touchy as I had feared after reading about how much most people don't like them. After the last top coat I finally got to see this bad boy standing tall!

(http://i561.photobucket.com/albums/ss51/skyshatter_warrior/P1010117.jpg)

I did quite a bit of masking on this kit to get two tones on individual pieces. I am particularly proud of the cables along the back of the legs and the ejection port on the Mega Beam canon (why does it need one?...) Those cables were a royal pain to mask off but well worth the effort.

Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Sir Vyving on July 22, 2011, 02:47:42 AM
What are you trying to do with the thrusters?

I was going to paint the insides red but then I saw what they did with them in the manual. It's a combination of yellow, grey an black and I really liked it. So now I'm trying to do something similiar but with a bit more yellow.
I'm probably just going to use some blu-tack or something because tape hasn't really worked so far.
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Dakaramor on July 22, 2011, 04:23:09 AM
Something like blue-tac would probably work best if you are trying to mask off the insides of a vernier^^ Trying to get tape in there would be extremely frustrating. I just got some myself for doing the thrusters on my next kits.

Btw, and forgive me if I missed this, which ReZEL are you doing? Commander or standard?
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Sonar on July 31, 2011, 04:07:48 PM
Not happy with the colour shade or the covering = windex bath. Interestingly I used a mix of 70:30 water:windex and it stripped in about a minute, leading me to believe that my 70:30 thinner:paint ratio was way too thin. Kinda felt that way when I was spraying it tbh.

Note that blue windex + orange acrylic = green slurry. ;D

Also interesting that the mr white surfacer is so far completely unaffected, and the masking tape seems to be holding out nicely as well.

Damn you Hemish I want my Delta Plus!  >:(

I'll tell you what, a day off where I can wrangle a solid almost-two-hour block for Gunpla is a majestical mythical beast and also an unfortunate rarity.

So I got to the medical imaging place and got the three scans done I've been stockpiling referrals for over a year for, shopped with the family for several hours, and in the afternoon I get just enough time to stick all of my orange ReZEL bits back onto sticks and re-prime half of them with Mr. White Surfacer, which I maintain is the devil himself's primer. Might work better over Mr. Surfacer but I have no time for such trivialities.

A frustrating ordeal it was. An occurrence to which I am becoming accustomed with this kit. Loved snapping it, and have hated everything since. I don't know if it was the ambient temperature or the fact that my half-can of surfacer was a few months old but I was getting some very unsatisfactory levelling which presented as dimpling and resulted in some pooling when I was trying to compensate. Add to that a nice dose of dust particles attaching themself to more than a few parts (Seems as though the big sweep out of the garage I indulged in before the last painting session was less of an indulgence and more of a necessity) and we have ourselves a frustrating little session which will likely result in more sanding back, re-priming, and severe procrastination. ....Goodbye Delta Plus. :'(

Yeah I just had that when I went to Japan. Spent all of it on the RG Strike which is 80% complete in my travel bag in the garage.

Gunpla time is not a luxury I can really afford very often. Hence the lack of completed kits. You guys make of it what you will, but remember I have three kids with a fourth on the way, never work less than a minimum 50 hour week, and somehow found time to establish and build a community that I pour most of my free time into blah blah blah the kids need me I gotta go....  :-\

I'll tell you what, a day off where I can wrangle a solid almost-two-hour block for Gunpla is a majestical mythical beast and also an unfortunate rarity.

I'm about halfway through painting the bits that were stripped of the orange with a gloss black undercoat. It is a time consuming process getting a nice even finish on so many parts. Also so demotivating to be further back than where I was a few months ago.

So once I finish those, I'll do all the parts that will be black on completion while I'm at it. Then start again on the orange I suppose. After which will be the bits of frame that show through, and some highlight pieces. Then I can think about clear coating, panel wash, and decals.

Post by: Sonar on August 08, 2011, 08:49:37 PM
Oooohhh I kinda feel like I owe you after the package you sent me. If I get the Commander I pledge the rifle to you. As it stands I need the current rifle for my ReZEL, should I ever finish it..

Lets go progress!

Seriously, am I a spastic? It took me on and off like 10 hours to paint all of the main armour parts gloss black. Seriously, WTAF?.. I went through a whole bottle of Tamiya gloss black doing this. I say again, What The Actual F@#$?

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1040445.JPG)

Seriously?! This took me like FOREVER! Maybe I should buy some Tamiya thinner, cos that's all I can break it down to is mixing the Mr Color thinner with Tamiya paint. It can't seriously make THAT much difference?!!? FFS.

..and here they are with like a third of the parts that are actually gonna finish black, black.

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1040446.JPG)

Further proof that I do actually do stuff is the grey bits for my ReZEL completed and waiting..

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1040447.JPG)

and here's a bit more of what's on the bench :P

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1040448.JPG)

(http://gundamaustralia.com/forum/images/P1040449.JPG)

So between organizing stuff like QMHE, flying interstate for GBWC, running this forum, building it better for you lot, dealing with sponsors, trying to get awesome prizes lined up, running the blog and facebook, and dealing with my 50 hour plus a week job ALL THE WHILE trying to spend time with my 3, almost 4 kids, I haven't done badly to get some gunpla done.. Anyone whinging about me not finishing a kit is about to officially and publicly kiss my arse. :fyou:

@ Falldog. I'd be happy to send a rezel rifle your way mate, from what I understand the delta plus has exactly the same gun and I don't think I need two. If it was MMP-80's on the other hand...:-) Seriously though, are you in the US? Let me know what I have to do to get it to you safe and sound.

@Sonar. Kits looking good mate. Nothing spastic about spending 10 hours doing base colours, I take that long to paint too. There's just one catch with that get it perfect attitude, every paint chip is a little bit of your soul dying:-) I didn't see the cima gelgoog in the pics, that kit is my fav of yours.

Also RE:commitments/time management. Building Australia's largest online gundam community from the ground up, priceless :-) Thanks for doing what you do.

Gloss black hey? not going with the orange scheme you originally had?
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: Sonar on August 17, 2011, 12:01:55 PM
The gloss black is the base coat for the orange. I didn't like how the orange came up over the Mr. White Surfacer. Too road safety. That and the coverage issue was why I stripped it.

Now ALL of my local hobby shops have mysteriously vanished overnight, and I need more Tamiya paint which it looks like I'll have to drive to Faraway Bay and pay $4 a pot from the bloody rip off toyworld guys. I went to a Toyworld yesterday and they only had Gunze, so I bought two different kinds of orange and two more pots of gloss black. We'll test out the two gunze oranges and the tamiya over the black on some spoons and see which one comes up the nicest.

Can you believe I've been through a whole pot of Tamiya black gloss on the base coat for just the orange pieces? I've only actually done about a third of the pieces that will finish black before I ran out of paint. I hope to hell Gunze gloss black and Tamiya gloss black don't look too odd together...

You're all being too kind, guys.

Below is an example of my noob skills, in close up:
(http://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a344/oadf108_razgriz1/Mecha%20models/IMG_2032zoom.jpg)
Poor masking execution...

Maybe the whole kit can't be considered complete yet: no topcoat, no decals, some parts are left unpainted, not enough weapons...

The color choice can't be considered excellent either, I use industrial grade enamel sprays, and the only colors available in flat are those used in that kit: flat white and grey primer from certain brand and grey primer from another certain brand (different grey), that's why i didn't do panel lines yet since they're enamels.

The paint layers are too thick, because I have difficulty using spray cans to reach some deep areas, u can actually feel the layer on the edges of camo.

I haven't tried to use airbrush, but if I can, I plan to topcoat it with Future and try some enamel panel line wash
Title: Re: MG ReZEL Group Build Anyone
Post by: fury-s12 on November 11, 2011, 01:00:01 PM
Tiny bits of masking  flaws don't mean much in the grand scheme of things, sure in a comp it matters, but for a shelf at home it matters not

Gotta go back to work day after tomorrow... so yesterday and today I spent a bit of time on the AB.

Much happier with the new shade of orange but I'm getting a few makurokuro in my paint :(

Spraying so heavy on the mix that I chewed through a pot in a dozen pieces and ran out. Found out that spraying lighter and taking ages to finish a piece yields nicer results in similar time. Was worried I was spraying a bit thin and I kinda was but the results were better.

I like airbrushing and understand the principles and techniques pretty well but damn it bores me how it takes so long to complete each piece.

Made a pretty lulzy noob boob today.. I must have put my trigger in backwards after cleaning yesterday. So I'd already filled the cup and instead of emptying it out into a spare pot I decided to try and disassemble from the back and turn the trigger around. Soon as I pulled the needle out I flooded the whole airbrush with paint out both ends. Was a total fu*er to clean up as well. Nnnnnnnooooooooooobbbb! ;D

The black base gives it depth. Closer to what I was aiming for so I'm happy. Cleaned Toyworld out of their stock of this colour today taking their last 3 pots. That should see me through.

Also gave the AB an overhaul clean after yesterday's blunder and sprayed the rifle.

Picked up some storage solutions from Japan Dollar Mart and did a bit of tidying and organizing in the garage. Worked that around a ton of family time and activities today so it was a productive last day of my hols. ;D

I dunno bout you but I find it enjoyable overhauling my airbrush since it teaches me how it all works. Before anyone decides to bag me I'm quite simple minded and always love to see how things work :)
Anyway that orange is turning out quite well. Hate having to run out of paint esp when you're about to finish up on a particular section. When I did my rezel commander i ran out on German grey and needed to finish just 4 parts and same with the Delta plus but on the binders and backpack. Gets me every time
