RG Aile Strike ( this can make me skip everything)

hisasiburi des ne.. has been pull away by my assignment and work again.. just realize that one week have past and post nothing here.. before i get into the topic.. some update about the my MG Wing.. as you can see from the previous post.. the painting process is done.. and now.. same as the marking and decal process too.. the only thing left now is photo shooting on the kit but i have one problem here.. for those who live in KL might can provide some clue on where can i find a real dark gloss black backdrop.. i can't find it in hardware shop.. stationary shop only have those type in mat type which also called sugar paper.. if you have any recommendation please put in the comment.. thx..

alright.. now.. lets discuss about this latest RG kit.. RG Aile Strike.. the first thing that i found most of the people think is what so special about this kit as the promotion picture of this kit show the MG and PG version in?.. i guess now everything is review out.. some other might also think that will it release in other pack too.? mm.. maybe.. or just attach the 1/144 scale sword and launcher pack.. as for me.. i even think of some nonsense thing like.. with the amount of detail from RG kit, is Bandai trying to replace the MG series by RG series?.. haha..

one unbelievable thing about RG is the amount of detail.. it is even better than the some of the "medium old" MG.. at least you don't have to paint the vulcan at the head unit which the MG version require to.. and it got lot of PG lining in RG kit.. not only that.. that articulation is incredible (can be match with Robot Damashi series).. same as the coloring.. For RG.. painting and proportion are better but Robot Damashi.. no nub marks.. XD.. well.. except the nub marks.. RG can be said perfect even without painting it and just do the straight assemble from the box.. "home look" from Z..

the boxart even show the finish kit with the runner.. and one thing i forgot to mention is RG come with decals and markings.. by looking at the box.. you might got cheated that this is a MG if you don't know much about gundam but not bad even if cheated by RG that it is a MG because RG can be better than MG in terms of design, color, proportion and articulation but not that preferable for people who like MG size model kit..

this is the backdrop i'm talking about.. total dark gloss black..
as promise from Bandai from the promo pics.. proportion as close as MG for both Strike and Aile pack which the 1/144 HG version suffer much on the proportion that have thicker head, smaller chest and shorter wings.. and the amount of the detail is as good as PG.. i'm not sure will the thruster and the vernier will be painted for the straight build but it seems that it will be painted.. awesome..

i think this picture can explain the articulation enough.. look at it.. it can post in such dynamic way.. which the 1/144 HG version can't.. what can i ask more..
ah.. there is one more question lie in my head when i saw this picture that display more on the Aile's wing.. will Skygrasper be release in the future? maybe and it will come with other pack as well.. i hope that is the answer..
again.. the thrusters.. awesome
wait a minute.. the figure of the pilot not included?.. you must be kidding me.. but the amount of detail in the cockpit not bad too.. but one thing i don't like on the chest "vernier" (again.. i don't what should i call it) is too rounded and small.. MG version better here..

alright.. from the title.. "this can me skip everything".. i mean buy this first follow by others.. yeah.. planning too.. my plan for getting the MG Hyakushiki had been long abandoned.. i means postpone.. my backlog is building up.. what can i do.. gotta save more money for paint so i can do more kit on the next holiday..

"MG wing complete" coming soon.. stay tune..

MG Wing WIP 2 (Dull)

since i'm not adding anything to this kit.. and i just re-paint it.. the WIP 2 will be simple.. sorry about the blur picture.. cause i purposely make it BLUR!!!.. XD.. well.. i should called it my sneak peak..

just got the paint process done.. and the next thing will be applying decal, markings and panel line.. just few more steps away from completion.. god bless me so i won't any mistake please.. the detail of the paint work and the kit will be discuss on the next post.. but in this post.. i actually have something to share about the paint.. even this blur picture not showing anything in detail but i think you can see the color right.. most of the colors i apply on this kit can be said dull type (as stated in the title).. but what i realize the color that should not go dull was completely dull.. i mean the gold color.. the gold paint that i use was from Mr.metal gold which i use it before.. and this time.. the same color but different bottle (of course).. comes with different color.. the gold is more darker (dull) and not like the normal Mr.Metal color which is easily come off after the paint applied.. i feel like the paint has been added with clear coat i think.. which the clear coat normally seal off the paint from falling off (in powder form for Mr.Metal color) and will make the color become dull a bit (especially gold color, will transform into bronze).. i was wondering did i bought the wrong paint?.. i think i have double check the paint again.. but the end result of this gold really match the overall of this color scheme.. so.. i have no complain here.. but for other kit.. still have to check out first.. i will try to show the comparison of the previous gold color and this soon..

HGUC Unicorn (Destroy mode) WIP 1

it's been quite busy these few weeks.. especially weekends.. have to work.. work.. and work.. product training on weekdays.. study on weekdays.. not much time left for other thing.. well i do mention my next project will be show in this post but it is not this kit the HGUC Unicorn Destroy mode.. you will know when you finish this post..

alright.. lets start bout this kit.. rather than the structure of the kit itself.. first i want to talk about the proportion of the kit.. as i mentioned in some of my previous post before.. the proportion ratio of the this version is better than the MG version.. there are some site differentiate in 10 to 11 level ratio and even compare to human proportion ratio that show what should be the length ratio for the head, chest, waist and legs.. i just want to keep it simple and point out the differences on HGUC and MG format of this kit in parts.. the first want will the abdomen part.. i didn't make a precise measurement but as i look at it.. the abdomen of the MG version seems too short and the long legs (in destroy mode) make it look weird.. just like the MG Nu-gundam.. the second part will on the shoulders.. the shoulders actually won't affect mush on the proportion or i should said affect in a direct way.. the shoulders actually able to give the kit look more dynamic.. which means that the shoulders should be about 45 degree face side upward (left to left, right to right).. not only that.. the shoulders' height should be higher than the chest which at least 1/3 of the shoulders height from the chest ( can't place too high or it will block the sight of the head unit).. the MG format shoulders' height can be said almost same as the chest.. that is why the HGUC version i mentioned here is much more better..

about the parts.. most of it are molded separately so the only that may require masking tape for painting might be the V-fin and the censor above the chest.. not much foil stickers needed too.. one thing i have to point out here.. most of you might have know already.. this kit doesn't come with any beam part even though it got for beam sabers.. WTF!!!

articulation wise.. i can say nothing much to worry about.. even though the it using ball type joint for the legs from the waist but it still quite flexible.. lets check out the pics..

total of seven runners needed for this kit

i left the thrusters in the runners cause i worry i might lost it due to it size..
as you can see from the picture above.. the size comparison of this kit is same as the 1/144 alteisen and almost same height with the 1/100 MG Wing gundam..

the pre-assemble look... i can't wait to put on the next step for this kit but..
the next project will be this guy.. i already disassemble it for painting.. this time i won't make any special custom color scheme for this.. just want to keep it look as original as it is.. might just adjusting the tone of each color and that's it (lighter blue or brighter yellow).. and i'm not planning to paint the inner frame as well as the inner frame already painted well originally.. just clean some nub marks from the inner frame will do..

stay tune for more..
