It was still made by John wasn't it.

The tachikoma is a Samurai Monkey kit and yet it's still made by John.

The 1/100 gluag booster was not mastered by John.

Rob/Samurai Monkey is still around, though he doesn't post as much as he used to. His new screename is robokochan.

I can tell you that's NOT the ARII kit. I have one. That one is WAY cooler! The stand looks like the ARII however.

Actually, there IS an ARII kit under there, believe it or not, it was just heavily modified with Super Sculpey because the basic kit was, well... Not that great.

When it was made: 1993

Scale: 1/15000 (approximate)

Can you still get this: you could never get it, even back in the day: it was a one-off that's still in my display cabinet collecting space dust :lol:

I stand corrected Cap'n! :lol: Awesome mod on that. I have the 4 original ARII Zentradi ship kits that I built back around the mid 90's as well.

fantastic work on that QQ!
i can only hope that a bigger version is on your shortlist of future projects.
perhaps 1/8000 to be in scale with one of the old SDF kits and the Britai flagship done by Scale Solutions.

"Kaa - Tsai" was already built by a fellow member PetarB. And lots of photos were posted in this forum.

Great stuff! But actually, the launch arm was mastered by Gundamhead, if I remember correctly.

I love how you got the main thruster bells on the booster to get that blue heated metal look. I have tried getting that same affect but I have never been happy with the final product. What did you use to get that affect?

I was wondering... How exactly can a Zentran pilot get out of the Regult's cockpit? It looks like these guys must have developed serious contortionist skills, which of course would be hindered by their rather rigid uniforms.
