  1. Cool, thanks guys. Oh, while we're at it... I was rewatching Frontier the other day, and I noticed Luca's comment in episode 12 about the super fold booster going through fold faults. Was any info given on how the super fold booster and Fold Dimension Resonance system compare in this regard? Was one more or less efficient than the other? Cheaper? Faster? I understand the FDR does plenty of other things, like increase engine thrust and energy output, but specifically for fold travel, does it offer anything the super fold booster doesn't?
  2. Was Ariel II not transmitted from Earth along with the YF-24 specs? Or did Frontier make improvements when making the YF/VF-25 that would make it more suitable for the YF-30? And why do they need to part out an actual fighter instead of just transmitting the code or something?
  3. How does this even happen? Did they somehow make way more of one leg than the other?
  4. The Sylphid is also the most "normal" looking design in the show. The rest are all a little weird, and several of them look like they come from a universe where aerodynamics work differently. As much as I like the Fand II, I'm of no delusion that it's a reasonable design for a plane. I see a lot of people here write about Shapeways, but I'm kind of curious how FDM printers (looks at Prusa on the desk) would handle some of the things people come up with. Layer lines would have to be smoothed, of course. I don't know how much work that actually is since I've never printed anything where looks are that important.
  5. I'd be down for that. I'm still missing the Flip Knight, although that's probably the one least likely to get reissued. While I'm dreaming though, what I'd really like is some of the other planes from the series. I super love the Fand I and II.
  6. My first thought about that side profile was that it looked really fat directly under the wings. I think it was the amount it curves down, like how far the lowest point of the belly plates is below the intakes, but after looking at it a bit more, I'm changing my mind. With the all the misaligned panels there and the big gap under the wing leading edge, I suspect it's somewhat mistransformed and the belly plates will pull up a few more millimeters. And if Bandai allows us to mount the guns down there (and they better) then that will break the profile up and help out as well. I think I'm sold.
  7. How do fleet economics work? How did Frontier get so rich, and how does that help them build a YF-29? Are the fleets close enough to each other and colonized systems that they are buying raw materials and/or contracting out work?

    Yeah, I was about to say it actually looks like Sheryl for once.
  9. That's an insta-buy for me.
  10. They were crewed, and outfitted with a full bridge and everything, but clearly were capable of operating autonomously, given that Banshee-IV was devoid of crew when Rei and Tom landed on it. Like most of the rest of the SAF, by the end of the war the humans were probably there just to do what the computers were telling them to do.
  11. It's Lacia from the book-turned-manga-turned-anime "Beatless".
  12. As someone who intends to rebuild a 1967 Mustang as soon as I have space to do so, I'm all over this. It looks great.
  13. I like my Brera with supers as well. I used to prefer it without them, but they've grown on me a lot. The leg packs stay on great, the arms fall off if I look at it wrong. I don't want to touch it for fear of dislodging something, but I think it's one click down on the GERWALK joint, but the knee is between clicks.
  14. Hot damn there is a lot of good wallpaper fodder in there!
