The FAZZ actually means Full Armor ZZ.  The Full Armor Gundam is an armored RX78.  The ZZ and the FAZZ are not full transformables (they don't have wave rider modes), but they both have corefighters. 

Yeah, i mean the sentinel fazz (FA-010A) with that white color scheme and blue toes. Mine was the FA-010S with that blue torso and red toes.

whoa! nice rig you got there, DINOSAUR!!!

Paints have slightly different formulations between brands and might behave/react differently or even have slight tonal differences.  So, if this concern is regarding consistency, better use the same brand on a project.  Mr Color is a good alternative to Tamiya colors, but not necessarily cheaper.

As for weapons, Kotobukiya has weapon sets that can be used for Gundams.  Check out Lil's Hobby at Park Square.  They have a few sets available.

There are a few other shops that carry Mr Color and other paint brands.  There's JMN's hobby at Harrison Plaza, and STC at Farmers and Greenhills.

That's one way of checking for color accuracy.  Manuals also have color indicators, but, again, paint might not be consistent across the board, especially if you mix your own.  So, it's always best to mix in batches.

Personally, I prefer cans, despite the limited color choices, because of the convenience.

They're talking about the 90% alchohol which is plastic safe.  Industrial thinners are too strong and can melt plastics.  Acrylic paints are water soluble so you can use (ideally) distilled water to rehydrate dried paints, enamels are oil based, so you have no choice but to get hobby grade enamel thinners to be on the safe side.

i just bought a jar of Tamiya thinner, kasi i have lots of stuck up paints here sana magamit ko pa sayang rin kasi. which other brands are enamel and which other brands are acrylic sir? Also sir, can i use the tamiya thinner sa mga Mr Color na products? (i bought kasi an engine gray and a metalic silver)

It should be on the label.  all brands have both types i suppose.

If you have it already, try.  It shouldn't be too much of an incompatibility so as long as your using the appropriate paint type with the appropriate thinner.

But, and this is not a straightforward rule, it's always better to use Tamiya with Tamiya, etc.

Great! thanks sir! I went to your site and sa w a tutorial (multi layered colors) and read that you used some bosny, an acrylic epoxy. I would like to have a feed back regarding its performance over time? di ba siya nag ppeel off? also i came across a cam of Pylox clear coat was wondering if it could replace the tamiya clear coat?

I don't use pylox so I can't give you an objective opinion of it.  Bosny top coats are actually sufficient (and cheaper) and now preferred by most local modelers I know

Read this regarding the paint type I use:  http://mxgs.blogspot.com/2010/07/misconceptions-about-paints.html

These are automotive paints.  The epoxy actually gives the paint finish strength and resistance from light scratches and doesn't peel like normal paint.  They can actually be left as is without top coat, but we do top coat for that extra protection.  (I prefer flat coats mostly nowadays.)

Paint peels overtime when the paint job wasn't done properly, bad paint combination, or if there are residual oils on the surface.  The kits I painted with Bosny paints have actually stood well in room temperature and normal humidity.

Whoa, nice to know that. Kabibili ko lng knina ng full armor zz sa best greenhills.. :) Transformable din ba ito? Well, im looking for fazz but its not available at wasabi and gt.

I fell in love with its big cannon (thanks to ben tsing co)... :lol:

Arent the fazz and full armor the same.? I guess the fazz is more advanced.

Stock-wise, the feet and the backpack are blue, the frame is dark gray, and the the "pinkish" color is the psychoframe is supposed to be red.  It's dark pink to simulate being lit up.  I'll be painting it dark red with a gold buffer, while most of the kit would be painted as is.

:-o

Thanks man!  Any plans entering the BAKWC this year?

Naahhh  :-D

I'm not worthy. I am just happy building Gundam kits. Mods, weathering and painting my kits at this moment is an entirely new thing for me. I'd like to see the event though. When and where is the BAKWC?

Magkano ba ngayon ang 0.8mm na plates? Yung common na gamit sa scratch building, naisip ko kasi mag mod naman ako kahit practice lang. Gagawa ako ng leg joint para sa SD.
And alternative putty para sa gaps. Ty

As far as I know, there's no 0.8mm.  I use 0.3, 0.5 (each at P75 per sheet), and 1.0 (P150).  There are thicker plaplates (1.2, 1.5 and 1.7) at P350 per sheet, at lil's hobby.

I hardly use putty to hide gaps or seamline.  There's the usual way of applying cement first to adjoining parts then sanding it later on, and there's presanding.
