  1. I think I have some of a 1/72 yellow submarine ve-1 kit that I was going to kit bash with a 1/72 hcm. Pretty sure all I got around to was mounting the head. Maybe... been a while since I have seen it in the room of nonsense.

    1/55's revisited

    wow nightmare@_@ A few I have never seen b4!!!
  3. been a number of years since I've checked in. yay adulting... looking for a cheap non broken toynami masterpiece beta to go with my sue alpha on behalf of my son. No point inheriting one without the other. I will happily buy if the price is right, or trade. lord knows I have stuff to trade,.... all older and dusty... are MIB clear 1/48 fast pack covers worth anything?

    1/55's revisited

    monkeys live on!!!! my toddler already threw one at me!
  5. add MACROSS25 to the list if he isn't already there.
  6. I have a 1/55 1d with fast packs lying around somewhere. I'm selling most of my collection but this wont be one of them. I will try and take pics and post them. It is a custom I pick up off ebay a few years back that I believe is/was a member of macrossworld. At the least he picked up some tricks from fulcy and a few others. I love my taka's and it pained me to sell my 1s on ebay a few weeks back. complete in box it sold for less than the joon's patriot!!!!! WTF? I do not see me listing my remaining taka's any time soon as they are worth more than that to me. Nice job on the blue taka. That and the red were the only 1/55 vf's I lacked when I gave up my quest to catch them all. The Taka is the grand-daddy of all the 1/55's and there were a lot of them. The most produced toy by various companies using the same molds that I am aware of. If I could send the guy who engineered it a gift I would. People write fan letters to actors and other famous folk, but how many engineers get the props they should?
  7. First props to Shaorin as another pioneer fan. Component systems are nice because if one component goes your entire system does not need to be replaced. my own system is of pioneer make for the most part. Before I go into the details of another of my aburdities I should say some back ground. From 97-99 I worked for an electronics chain which would put older items on clearence. My first pioneer reciever was a doloby pro 600 watt with learning remote discontinued in 97. No box, no instructions, serial number carved in it with a knife... found in the attic of a mall store... $27.50 with employee discount! I then abused the inventory locating system for the next few years tracking down discounted merchandise in other stores across the country. My store often lost money selling me the items at the discounted price as shipping from other locations was often more that the system price. the system was as follows until we moved to our first house 5 years ago. All components pioneer unless noted otherwise. 600 watt dolby pro reciever 540 watt dolby pro reciever 3 100disc linear changers pdap1 radio station control module/interface for the 3 disc changers Dual cassette deck with link cable to reciever for remote control interface. Tape deck has dolby versions I never heard of like "s" my pc with all my cd's and friends collections personally ripped by me at the highest sampling rate the program I used back the allowed 190+ something. remember... speakers make the best speaker stands LOL each reciever supports 2 a channel, 2 b channel, 2 rears, a center, and a sub pre out. I inverted one dolby system just for better surround techno music for a total of 14 speakers in the living room plus a powered sub shared between both receivers. I had a 2 channel mixer between my cd controller and the units so I could hear my videogame system sound fx with my own background music. I know I am forgetting some components and accessories and am not home till the 27th to check. The only problem the system presented was that the recievers used the same remote so I would always have to "tweak" the knob on one to make the sound levels equal. I finally solved this by getting another 540 watt and moving the 600 watt into the dining room. .... well that and when I moved I put all my wiring in one giant tupperware where it became a giant tangle of crap 5+ years after moving and the 600 watt dining room and a 300 watt spare bedroom set are all that is hooked up... for shame. It's on my to do list with all sorts of stuff... like cleaning my toy room lol. You can connect your pc to a component system easily enough and some games really should be played with great surround sound so you know the direction the thing trying to eat you is coming from.
  8. I'd never join a club that would have me as a member

  9. I don't understand why bandai doesn't mimic yamato and release stand alone fast packs and armor. The gbp came stand alone or gift-set... but that was taka. I know if bandai released a stand alone strike pack it would probably outsell valks as many of us already have vf's and jetfires lying around that would be much improved with a strike cannon or two. Seeker and o' armor would be super cool but I expect that they would not sell as well as stand alone... not everybody has loose e's and o's sporting resin . A gbp reissue might sell well however. Not that bandai would listen to me anyways but I can dream what does it cost to make an injection mold anyways? Even if the original molds are damaged couldn't bandai afford to but an original and scan it? And I doubt bandai would issue bandai a cease and "however the heck you spell" deassist.
  10. sweet. I've only seen the one pic of a stampee and your looks to be spot on so far
  11. I don't think I ever got bleemcast to work properly... but I had a modded psx1 so it didn't matter. I just recently parted with my modded psx1 and three dreamcast's with well over 1k of gamss/roms. I am pretty sure I still have the two disc genisis collection and the snesdc selfbooting discs imaged on one of my hard drives. Probably some more stuff imaged as well as I am a pack-rat. Give a shout if you have a dreamcast and I'll mail you some discs ... eventually
  12. I've been out of pc for a bit... Is there such a thing as a dos emulator? I have battletech crecent hawks inception in box with 3.5 &5 1/4 floppies. I played it on my old win 98 machine which dual booted to 2kpro and I believe it work on both. I ported it to my new laptop [via cd from the old tower], and it could not detect the 16k of memory neccessary to play . Any advice? everybody already know that there was a nes, snes, sega master system, sega genisis, and atari emulator for roms on the sega dreamcast right? I never got the intellivision emu to work though. Still great to have a couple hundred genisis games on one cd playable on dreamcast. Star control was always so much fun. suck limpet mines all who disaggree
  13. I thought I had a good site but looks like you are right. All they have now is incendiary at the moment. lots of other good stuff but.. It doesn't matter how nice a gun you have if you can't get ammoo for it http://www.ammunitiontogo.com/catalog1/advanced_search_result.php?search_in_description=1&keywords=762x54 I'm still gonna snag a romak3 though. Ammo can be found but it is corrosive, which I would feel fine shooting from a m91 but not from the rom. If anybody comes across non-corrosive 762x54 give a shout. I can only hope the above site restocks at some point. Not that the incendiary don't look like lots of fun but my budget doesn't allow. anybody got tips on a good cheap 308? I've got seven silver bullets [don't ask], but I don't have a gun that will shoot them. Me+hammer+silver bullets=pissed off werewolf edit in rather than add a post... Anybody know anything about the hi-point 9mm carbine. Anything I should be aware of before playing with it? If a carbine is a rifle that shoots pistol rounds, what is my walther p22 pistol that shoots rifle rounds?
  14. once upon a time somebody made a skyfire custom that looked nice. Basically a jetfire with a single booster but done well. somebody probably has pics saved around here. I won't go into the whole takatoku-matsushiro [joon's + china ko's]-bandai story as even I remember that that story is somewhere already posted on the forum. maybe dave remembers where. I know the story of the molds... not the toon. hey dave... not everybody has a photographic memory and remembers every post in every thread... especially those who disappear for months/years at a time. I will happily tip my beer to you for pointing out further places that info can be located at as well as humoring some of us long time noob's
  15. I wish my hands were still steady enough. Damn impressive.
  16. hey dave... been a bit. There are a couple things you can do to speed the curing process without risk. Much like drying fungus you can put said model in a box in a closet and throw a bunch of "dessicant" packets in with it. You know the little packets of silica+ stuff they put in electronics and other boxes that say "do not eat". Better still, if an option, is if you have central heat and ac place the subject on a piece of cardboard underneath the intake for the air handler [usually in a closet somewhere in the house]. only do this if your ac unit does not have a leak/drip. The constant airflow devoid of moisture works wonders drying fungus... I mean paint when absolutely dry I still recommend citadel clear coat sealer applied as directed. You will probably have to order a can but I've used the stuff on everything from models to my old car.
  17. super nice. great detail. What paints did you use? Airbrush I assume? you forgot the macross symbol on the wing to make it a matsushiro
  18. being super anal about tools and supplies I spent a while on ebay looking for the 90's citadel paints with drip lids, especially the metallics. It took a while but I finally found a guy in jersey who was willing to part with one pot of blue metallic because I bought 40 other pots of various colors. Later that year I was in a car accident and suffered nerve damage and as such can no longer paint steady. And for some reason I still can't part with the paints another example is of a radio shack probe set discontinued in 2002. % years later at a francise store going out of business I found three sets and bought them all. The straight probe from the set is the only thing I know of that will open my blasted teac 8x burner then there was the modeling putty probe that saved my $1k in transmission work. I'd say find out in detail what you want or what people like cheng recommend and search everywhere from garage sales to google to old electronics and hardware stores. just try and find a "fret" saw and you will know what I mean... Once upon a time there was a small saw blade for the exacto knife. Great for custom modeling but long out of production. And mine is not for sale. I imagine that there are many fabulous tools I have never had the chance to work with as well.
  19. regardless... nice looking glaug. put it next to a bandai hcm for the next photo
  20. sweet. I wanted to do the same with a bandai/taka die-cast 1/100 but haven't got around to it. I still have the parts from the supposedly rare 1/100 resin ve and a taka brownie sporting the ve head. yeah... I never made much progress . keep pics coming.
  21. does anybody have any experience with either of my next two planned purchases? Any insight would be appreciated. ROMAK-3 - 7.62X54R SEMI-AUTO RIFLE or ROMANIAN AES10-B HEAVY BARREL AK http://www.classicarms.us/images/aes10bwsc.jpg I know that I do not want a drum magazine for it but besides that... items will be purchased from http://www.classicarms.us/ in another few weeks as I raise loot. I also plan on getting two of the TULA M91/30 NAGANT rifles... one hex and one round. Will they need "stripper clips" like my 7mm mauser? http://www.classicarms.us/firearms.htm
  22. I remember way back having a nice monkey thread going here for the obsessive. I liked it because I could use it as a reference and like pokemon "gotta catch them all". Unfortunately new stuff has been released during my absence so I have lost track. And until I see the friggin Isreali 1/55 in real life I will believe it was just a figment of my imagination! I don't even have a saved list to cut n' paste here... but I bet somebody does If I start filling out a list based on what I poorly remember. I figure I should focus on completing one collection verbatim and part with everything else. I just need to know what everything else is LOL. Anybody want to trade 1st ed pokemon sets for a boxed ve-1 so list as I recall... taka... super w fast packs brownie hik 1s max 1j milla1j gbp-1s giftset gbp armor alone space gandam chinese vf-1s super org boxed like bandai super chinese vf-1s super w/o fast packs... 1/2 strike box joon's... there were a number of them and while I have them I can't see them so I don't remember any besides green RWB max milla ? matsushiro vf-1j star force vf-1s jetfire with painted wing vf-1s jetfire with sticker wing bandai bandai super org "hi-metal" vf-1a vf-1s strike set ve-1 set vt-1 set vf-1j reg vf-1j max vf-1j milla I am sure I am forgetting some up to the 90's re-issues... as well as some since as I am not up to date. bandai re-issue vf-1j vf-1a cannon fodder vf-1j max vf-1j milla vf-1s vf-1s super set I will just pretend the toynami are 1-6 and don't really exist till I need that shelf space.
  23. are these attached like the mpc fastpacks with magnets? I spent much time bastardizing 1/100 models to make fast packs for my taka 1/100's and if this is an easier solution...
