  1. The kits does not need to be purchased from HLJ, only available for purchase from HLJ, so that others can buy it if they like your worksince thus is a promotional  exercise for them.  not sure what this means for the bandai star wars kits.

    There are already people announcing the kits they are building and showing 1/2 completed models with pained details.  If you are going to cheat, at least make an effort to cheat.

  2. One thing to note: The kit cannot be started as of the start date of the contest (Jan 16th, 2017).  Last time, people were posting kits that were already completed but they were disqualified.

    You cannot post your progress anywhere other than the HobbyLink TV site.  Once the contest is over, you are free to post to other sites.

    If you are serious about entering, you should watch the video above.  I will be entering as I wanted to start my VF-31J.

  3. I am disappointed they did not do a Macross Delta emblem on the stand. You would think with 5 planes in the series, they could have spent the R&D on nicer looking stand base.

  4. Aren' t the web excusive items made to order, making them slightly easier to get? At least i have never had a problem getting the add-on packs. Getting the valk, on the hand, is another story.

  5. I got a confirmation email from AmiAmi today that they were able to secure a preorder I put in on Saturday. There may be a bunch of cancellations which explains why there are some additional units available. Good hunting, 5 days to go.

  6. I built my 31 and thought it was great as well. I would love to see how TomyTec makes these things.

    For anyone who has not started on theirs yet, be aware they are under-gated. When cleaning up the gate marks, there are two areas you need to clean. I have attached a picture from a Bandai instruction booklet that shows you how to remove the gates. If the gates are not fully removed, you will not be able to get rid of all the seams.


  7. Quickly glancing at the third shot in this set, I thought you already had the pod in flames :lol:

    Great work! Can't wait to see the final product. I just added the Tamiya F-14A Tomcat to the backlog... Should get around to it in 2250 or so... Beautiful kit, highly recommended.


    Not happy with the wearing on the feet yet but close to Future sealing then decals then dirt and oil time and done.

  8. From Dengeki Hobby web:


    The Draken Ⅲ of Windermere air Knights affiliation, "White Knight" this and the kit in the aircraft of Keith Aero-Windermere. Reproduce the fighter form a complete new mold. Canopy selection formula for transparent type who have lost a full armored type and protector. Also assembled the flight state and tarmac state in a selection formula. Pilot figure of the seated posture comes with one body. (Google translate)

    November 2016 - 1/72 Scale




  9. Does anyone know the actual release date for this? I know they say Dec 2016 but will it be beginning or end the month. The reason I am asking is I may be in Tokyo for the holidays and will try to time it around the release date. If I am going, I will be willing to pick up a few for forum members who miss out on the presales (If I can find them).
