Jinnai>>>Are you gonna paint the two "stripes" on the upper-arm ? I think they're grey on the design (just pointing it out in case you missed it^^)
Also are there advantages/drawbacks in painting all the parts at once Vs a few ones everyday as you do ?
Maybe not as long as you don't run out of a custom paint mix^^
happy hopping wrote:Those teeth are used in combat to injure the other MH by kicking the opponent. So all MH that has calf blade teeth are facing down.
Ha so that's their use ? I didn't knew that. The white Phantom doesn't have them. No idea about the black one.
2) I don't have this kit. They c/w 2 shield w/ the sharp edges on both top end. But does the kit also c/w a much bigger shield, curved and V shape at the top? Because I've seen some web site has that big shield.
You're talking about the black Phantom's shield with a blood cross and stripes on it ? I think it was a add-on kit from chrome-head and that was pretty hard to find out of Korea (there was also special shoulders, with jewels on it, and another arm to make the Phantom hold his sword over his shoulder).
My white Phantom recast has the two regular shields (with horns and grinning face), no big shield. It looks like the red also has those 2 shields in the box despite not being there in the manga (we can see it in the newtype scans).
Also those shields sports a logo with 3 starts, which I guess have nothing to do on the red Phantom.
We can hope to see a black Phantom kit once it appears a bit more in the manga^^.
I've carefully looked at the red and white Phantom, if some are interested, I've found those differences :
-the horns of course^^ (bending sideward on the red, backward on the white)
-the upper-head is different (the white has a long polygonal part down the neck, it's shorter on the red and painted white)
-the hair of course, white has 9, red a lot more (18 ?), though in the manga scans the number changes^^ (11 in a pic, about 15 in another), also they look different on the red, there is no additional part at the tip of each hair
-shoulders tip, cut and painted gold on the white, nothing specilal on the red, but a kensai icon (kensai or something else, I don't know, that sort of wing^^)
-skirt armor, the white has 3 large armor parts, the red has two large (one on each side) and two smaller in the back, the back counterweight is also a bit different (now I don't know if this is specific for the red, or if Nagano changed the design for all Phantom since Smokewalls).
-ankle armor: the red has more little lines on it than the white
-and no "teeth" at the back of the feet for the white
If you find others, let me know^^
