  1. Amazing... such an old DX and even still, the pre-orders sell out within 15 minutes of opening.
  2. https://www.gundam-base.net/special/rg_unicorn_twc-lm.php RG Unicorn, light up edition!
  3. Ooh, thanks. It's essentially only a $5 on top of the P-Bandai price by getting it via Nippon Yassan. I didn't think about this place. Thanks!
  4. P-Bandai? So... it's all of a sudden hard to get. Any suggestions to where to keep a watch on for pre-orders?
  5. Aah ok. I'll end up getting a Mr. Mark Setter and a Mr. Mark Softer bottle instead of the Micro-Sol pair now. I looked up a YouTube video and they seemed to work easily enough. Apply Mark Setter onto location Slide decal onto location Mop up excess Apply Mark Softer onto top of decal This will be good for those kits which have a nice surface finish on them to avoid ruining them with the use of a top coat.
  6. What pulled me into Delta was the delta wings of the bird. At first I wasn't all too sure about paying for the DX so ended up buying the 05 kit also. Built it and it's sat unlined and without decals and stickers for the longest time. I ended up buying the DX of the 02 and am supremely happy with it. I've resolved to also get the decals onto this bird and permanently display it in fighter mode only. It at least deserves this much. Looking at the decals though... man it's daunting - there's so much of it! Stickers, dry transfers and waterslides! It'll take me a couple of weeks to
  7. Got it. Thank you for the clarification!
  8. I'm a little confused with this product - so the Mark Setter is the bottle with the blue markings? This bottle with the red markings is meant to remove the decals?
  9. Looks like a great build. Question though about the Micro Sol you have in the photo - this is the stuff that sucks in the waterslide decals hard onto the surface? Does it mean that using this stuff, there's no requirement for top coating the kit to keep the waterslides on long-term?
  10. What's the difference between the two Strike Freedoms which has been out and to be coming out? The Metal Build vs the Robot Spirits version upcoming in a few months' time? Scale? Detail? Style? Proportion?
  11. Thanks for this knowledge. I'll just keep an eye on things and pick the kit up whenever it comes back into stock. I did however also did some more looking around and there were some Reddit recommendations that a top coat would not go nice with the titanium finish of the plastic. Recommended instead to use something like some Microscale Micro-Set solution for the decals to further suck the decals onto the surface. I guess I'll do that. Small amounts can be applied and mop-up to minimise run-off, etc.
  12. Thanks for the advice - some of it I understood already - my major question was would the top coat applied to the kit, would it negatively affect the titanium finishing? I guess it doesn't matter too much now though because I contemplated too much... the shop I was considering buying it from sold it yesterday. Does Bandai continue to make these Titanium Finish editions of the kits or is it done once, all done type of thing? I may end up just having to wait and when I've cleared off some of the kits in my backlog, it may end up being the non-glossy version of the Nu Ver.Ka.
  13. What's the opinion of the special edition "Titanium Finish" variants of kits? More specifically, I really quite like the look of the RX-93 Nu Ver.Ka and came to the understanding of there being a Titanium Finish version of it. Looking at the images and videos posted online the slightly darker colours of the kit are nice and the coating catches the light so the differing angles coming out of the panel lines makes for not needing to actually panel line the kit. This sort of stuff appeals to me. The question I have though is relating to the waterslide decals. A Ver.Ka kit is nice bec
  14. The Red Frame comes with what I am lead to believe is the standard MG hands. Articulated thumb and first finger, the last three are a single piece. No fixed pose hands. Stickers - majority of the stickers I actually left off because I ultimately didn't like the look it presented to the kit when applied. The majority of what's on there are dry transfer decals. I think the only stickers that managed to stay on the kit were the Tiger Pierce and Gerbera Straight name stickers which went onto the scabbards. The water soak didn't do them too badly.
  15. Finished with my Master Grade Astray Red Frame. First one. I cleaned up a lot of the visible nub marks, put the decals and stickers onto it, painted on a few areas which I think made it look nicer and painted some weathering and battle damage to it before applying some weathering pigment to top coat and let it all set. First of a photo, got a few more poses I'd like to try and then take some more photos of before I'm "set" for it being a single pose for display. Let me know what you think and what improvements I could attempt for the next project!
