Working, as I do, in a metal fabrication environment I am going to go for... not me.  Even though there is an unwritten rule in our workplace that I am not to get within 5 meters or any sort of machine bigger than a laptop they still wory I would get a tie caught in a plate roll.  Since I am a terrible conversationalist I didn't find out what everyone else did.  I know what Hemish does, and I know what Hoardz does.  Not sure what Sonar or Xeno do specifically.  Could be Hemish, Could be Sonar, Could be Xeno.

yeah, my photography skills need work.  I need to have a play with the settings on the camera, but certain people here get upset when I play with their camera.

I would expect it would take a day or 2 to pack and check the order I guess.  My part is a fifth of he order roughly and it has a ton of stuff in it, so I can imagine the massive number of items to go into a box.

Is it sad that I have been checking the forums every hour for updates on the massive Brizzy order?  I don't know what I expect to find but I am just so hyped.  Even had trouble sleeping last night.  I hope this gets better as I get older in the hobby cause this could make life very hard. ;)

Man, that is awesome.  I wish I had something like that because I have been colouring in a lineart in photoshop and it is PAINFUL.  I look forward to future releases with other kits.  I knw thre is a massive time investment hre so thanks so much.

This kit is both cheap and common as far as I know.  Cost me 15 bucks and is a 1/144 Tallgeese III.  It is my first go at painting for that reason.

Thanks guys.  I think I might try to spray he white, and maybe even the grey if I can separate the kit enough to do it.   The supacheap primer may be a goer too, just need to look into it a little more. You have seen the kit Hoardz.  It came out of the box with every sprue white, every part white, some of the polycaps are even white.

Hi,

I am looking to take my HG Tallgeese and make it pretty (pic below shows how it is now, purely snapped together).  Basically I want to remove seam lines, paint and panel line it.  Just want to get some advice and make sure that I am heading in the right direction.

The first thing I plan to do is remove seam lines lines.  I plan to do this with cement and some sanding sticks.  I remember seeing a link Sonar posted on making your own, must find that again.  I thought this should be the first thing because then I can paint over the sanded areas.  Then I will prime it.  Should I leave it assembled or take it apart for this?  Some parts will be locked togethr with the polycaps exposed.  Will paint damage the polycaps?  Should I spray prime or hand brush?  I want to keep the majority of the parts white (going for the Tallgeese I colour scheme) so I think a white prime is the most suitable.  I am planning hand brushing Tamiya paint (I think I can get Enamel and acrylic locally here, went to Toyworld this afternoon for a look) since I don't on a metric-load of alligator clips and skewers.  I am not oposed to spray painting, just have nevr painted any sort of kit before and I thought hand painting would be a less stressful exercise, although as I type this I am questioning that in my mind.  Next step is to overcoat, white where I want white and grey, gold, whatever other colour where I want those.  I found the chart http://www.naritafamily.com/howto/paint.htm on another post so I think i can work out what products to put on provided I get some advice on what type of product to prime with.  Second last step would be to panel line.  I am keen to try out a panel wash, but not sure if I am quite ready having not panel lined a single thing before successfully.  I don't even own Gundam markers.  Tip for young players, do not panel line your Gunpla with fine liner pens.  Anyway I think I will use Gundam marker to panel line.  Then I think I should clear coat to seal everything all nice.

Is that about right?  Am I headed the right direction?  Anything I have missed?

Thanks for any advice you can provide.

Ok, so I finished this kit.  Really happy with the results.  After 6 failed attempts to post a pic here I am taking it as a sign that I should not post these pics, butinstead work on my photography skills and enter in in the HLJ contest.   :)

LOL, Xeno's order as an easy one, and I just picked up a hand full of HGs since the MGs I wanted were all out of stock (I wanty a QAN[T], and so much other stuff).  Also took Xeno's advice and grabbed a hobby knife and decided to actually get some real Gundam panel line markers.
