  1. AJAC ?

    That would be a >$300CAD model without even batting an eyelash.
  2. AJAC ?

    Centimeters, not inches. The stats put the Crusader at 9m in length (closer to 18cm in 1/48), but I like to size my mecha so as to be able to seat actual human-sized pilots in the cockpits. The stats and reference material for SC mecha are so very elusive that I might as well fill them in properly.
  3. AJAC ?

    One kit that could be built in any of the 3 modes (Crusader, Cross-Fighter, Cosmo-Sniper) Based on the few numerical values I could find, it would be somewhere in the range of 21-24 long in Crusader (fighter) mode, once properly scaled to 1/48. I wouldn't consider the current thread as anything more than just a project primer at best, simply because people can be rather fickle over long wait periods.
  4. MOSPEADA Inbit Revival Part III: Gamo doppleganger?

    Lol, I guess that's one way to look at it! I think we're up to 7 now.
  5. AJAC ?

    I think maybe you mean "Spartas" and not "Spartan"?
  6. MOSPEADA Inbit Revival Part III: Gamo doppleganger?

    My Crabs are already perfectly scaled with my 1/48 Legioss Armo-Soldier kit, but that's neither here nor there. Have Evolution provided any height specs for their Soldier yet?
  7. AJAC ?

    Correct, sir. Like the Spartas, the Auroran is technically a triple-changer which has a spacecraft mode and that's what I remember most. Once I get past the 1/48 Gamo, I'd be game to tackle something like this, but it's a complex design and I'll easily need 30 orders to cover my time/labor.
  8. AJAC ?

    That brings me to the crux of the Auroran issue: I've never seen (published or otherwise) any diagrams of just how it transforms. The Spartas on the other hand, is relatively simple.
  9. AJAC ?

    The Auroran and Spartas are both great designs. I'm contemplated whether I should dip my toe back into the sculpting arena.
  10. STAR WARS Merchandise Episode - 2

    I was already floored when I saw the decal guide: those alone will take days to apply correctly! Now seeing the inside of the canopy frame, the lighting system and the PE parts... I'm glad I ordered moar than one! Oh, and Pinky is totally outmatched.
  11. It's possible that the Resistance has newer, better fighters coming and so they may have just jerry-rigged a temporary performance boosting device to bridge the gap.
  12. People who grew-up with the prequel films have occasionally commented on how some shots in the OT look rickety and fake, and that some of the OT designs look like a bunch of junk cobbled-together. Arguably, ship crashes, explosions and complex moves look infinitely better in the prequels than the OT. Frankly, I'm more concerned with how Disney will develop the story going forward, but in the end it's out of my hands.
  13. Back in the 80s, you were a lot younger and more impressionnable. Second, Star Wars was such an out-of-the-box phenomenon in the late 70s/early 80s that there was little-to-nothing else in its league, so it stands to reason that it would be memorable if only for that one fact. You also have to account for the nostalgia factor, which is probably more significant than anything else. Lots of old films/series I used to watch as a child were really cool to me then, but if I look at them objectively now, they don't always stack-up too well. For what it's worth, I really like the Jedi Starfighters, the 2-seater X-wings (that remind me of an F-4 Phantom) and the Republic Freighter, but I realize that taste is subjective. Fun fact: the prequels utilized more physical models/miniatures than the OT.
