    Yep, it looks like those tabs on the blade are there to provide a means to slide the blades out of the wheel housing once they have been fully retracted. Without the tabs, the fully retracted blades wold have no means by which to be extricated.

    About the feet. Way back in 2006 I posted a thread (really a step by step walk through ) of the mods I did while making a kit-bashed Gerwalk fro a Hase. battroid and fighter kit. It was a similar pose as what you are attempting and i went with extending the feet up into the gap.You can check it out here and see what it looked like to judge if you want to try something like it. link

    Apologies and free stuff!

    Good to see you back!
  4. Here's a pretty good review of the printer.
  5. Both points well taken. This is the first sla machine I've seen for less than a grand so I thought it was worth posting about. Prices will hopefully be coming down from here. Fingers crossed.
  6. Just saw this and thought some here may be interested. https://www.banggood.com/ANYCUBIC-Photon-UVResin-SLADLP-3D-Printer-115x65x155mm-Printing-Size-With-28inch-Touch-Screen-p-1267935.html?rmmds=category&cur_warehouse=CN

    From the Google translation of that page they appear to be reissues of the old 1:15 Imai plastic models due in May this year from Qingdao Bunka Tsukuba. The Hoquet is interesting 'cus that's a hard one to find in my experience. https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=y&prev=_t&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Fhobby.dengeki.com%2Fnews%2F527892%2F

    Off topic I know, but it's a shame that those A. S. BSG figures are the Tokyo 2040 Hardsuits only. Got a few ideas for modding the kit figure to proper size and proportions though so hopefully that works out. * Correction it's not the Tokyo 2040 suit it's the Bubblegum Crash suit.

    Hasegawa 1:4000 SDF-1 (DYRL)

    Well they have redone the main gun booms because on the cruiser mode kit they are just the DYRL version with new parts for the front terminus point. I wonder if I bought one of theses and recast the booms if I could make them work on the cruiser kit?

    Hasegawa 1:4000 SDF-1 (DYRL)

    Interesting, that is the SDFM version, but the cruiser mode they released as the SDFM was basically a re-pop of their DYRL cruiser mode with the Prometheus and Daedalus and a few altered pieces. I wonder if they are going to do a new cruiser mode that is actually a true SDFM version?

    The text descriptions have been posted at HLJ and indicate that it is a s the good Captain had indicated. Sorry for my brain fart earlier. It should have been clear - I'd just forgotten that these kits, at one time came packaged together.

    Tekering already mentioned that in his post with the links above. Most likely just the wrong image used at HLJ.
