Airbrush sa ACE Hardware??? 900php??? Wow, I got to check that out. I have no ideas about airbrush prices, I just started with it too and im using spray paints. Try asking Matx, he uses airbrush...

Woah never expected na merong Gundam thread dito! Looking for some time now 'til I found this...

Nice kits, Sir Matanglawin. I only have two MG's. ACGUY and Strike I.W.S.P. I'm more into Super Deformed Gundams. Mas madali kasing pinturahan. I just buy the Gundam Markers and those are good to go.

This was my hobby before I became addicted to pedals and such. Never painted my kits though 'cause I find washing, applying primer and coating, and painting too tedious. But of course, doing such is highly recommended as those processes make your kits look more astonishing and less "plastic-y".

Also check this site out. It's in Korean language but Chrome can translate some of it into English.

dalong.net

It contains reviews about Master Grades and Perfect Grades. Downside is, it is in Korean language. However, the pictures taken are quite okay as they cover lots of angles and articulations.

Thanks, man.  Dalong is pretty well-known, amongst many a Gunpla source.

Anyways, here's a test shot of the Chimera, hopefully for G-Shot!  I've used a technique to have it in flight mode without mounting it on an action stand, then added Lens Flare for effect.

It's actually a simple technique.  Think, "Movie Magic..."

Yeah let's keep this thread away from "trolls"! :-D

Anyways, which airbrush would you consider using? Iyung mga "for plastic kits" lang ba like the ones sold by hobby shops? Or pwede rin iyung mga nabibili sa hardware?

How about the mixture percentage of thinner and acrylic?

Thanks in advance! :-D

I'm not sure about "hardware" grade airbrushes;  I haven't seen one.  Maybe those are spray guns?

The thing about hobby/art grade aibrushes is that they are made specically for one to be able to control the spray burst.  Personally, I'm still sticking with Spray cans for the meantime because they are convenient, albeit a bit challenging to use.  I might get an AB ONLY if I get commissions.

Oh... Baka nga spray gun. I really don't know the exact term.

Anyways... So sige nga masubukan ngang pinturahan iyung ACGUY ko hehe. Hanap muna ako sa net ng detailed procedures about painting kits.

PG kasi eh tapos sobrang mura compared sa ibang PG. So nagdududa ako baka may "catch" kaya pala mura. I am curious if the experience working on that kit ay "pang-PG" nga. marami rin akong naiiisip na idea para about painting it.

Ah yes.  The Special Clear parts come as a separate package offered during the first batch of orders (you also pay for it separately).  One of Bandai's (or some distributor's) marketing strategy was to say that if you want to use the clear parts, you'll have to buy a second kit for it because the armor "sticks," making it difficult to remove, but that has disproven.

I'm selling mine because I realized I won;t a need for it.  But then again, I can probably build a frame for it and make a statue instead.

Amir of MAC Forums also sells koto parts.  Check with him, since he may have stocks available.

That's called a rubber cutting mat.  It also comes in blue and red and is available at National Bookstore.  I've a green one that I've been using for more than 10 years.

If you're talking about special clear replacement parts, yes, it's around 2.5K when it was released, but it come as a buy one offer during the first batch of orders of the main kit, making the set the most expensive at 16K (M1Gs Price).  The Kit alone (without the special parts) is around 13~15 depending on where you buy.

A friend of mine saw this already. The brand is Eagle. He said that it looks like a small spray gun, a little similar to an airbrush but the paint is placed in a bottle which is connected at the bottom of the spray. He said that the only difference is how you tweek or adjust the sprays burst or something like that. He said that he saw it at Ace Hardware and its around 999.75 pesos only. The only thing I dont know if it will be ok for gundam kits...

I'll check that out, but I believe it's and entry level spray gun, not an airbrush...
