  1. About the Jam sylph. To quote Isamu, "I've been waiting for you.......Pretty girl." "I need one now so I can blow you out of the sky, it's a rematch, you wont disappear on your own this time." -Rei Fukai
  2. By the way 100 mega that is a very impressive collection you have there. Which one completed your collection? I’m still hunting down the Super Sylph. Absolutely crazy prices now. All you have there in that pic is expensive enough to display in a vault. Ha ha.
  3. Speaking of which after all these years 3.0+1.0 is out at last and I hear the reviews are great. People actually move to tears in the cinema. Can’t wait.
  4. The third novel was released in 2009. Unbroken arrow. I have a hot copy in my hand but alas I am not Japanese. How ever the translator of the 2 previous novels gives a brief but tantalisingly overview of the third novel without giving anything away. You can get a digital copy of both translated novels and I highly recommend reading them ‘wow’ Kambayashi wasn’t awarded best sci fi writer on a whim. You’ll love it and be left wanting more.
  5. By the way if anyone has scanned images of the SAF flight manual and the FAF technical orders I'd be very happy. There is character art work in them that isn't in FAF at war, Blue and purple or Sento Yosei Yukikaze - Mechanical Design Works.
  6. Hi 100mega, The downloaded blueray of Yukikaze I have is definitely better quality than the standard DVD. The blueray version I downloaded about 2010 has no subtitles or English dub. I bought the original series back in 2002 when it first came out. Mind you I got the Platinum edition with the DTS 6 channel sound so I couldn't speak for the sound, however the picture quality on the blueray is better even if it is in the standard 4:3 ratio. My advise is, that if you can get an original blueray copy then get it, as they are super rare. Plus you get a fantastic art book and other goodies like the Diecast 1:200 yukikaze FFR-41mr aircraft behind a little window in the blueray box. I opted out as they were around $300 dollars at the time they came out new from CD Japan. I'm going on Aust, dollars.
  7. Good to know. I almost presses buy at Nippon Yasan. But at over $500 Australian dollars, (what the!!!!) I can't justify it at all. I'm really glad they said they'd PO again. These are crazy times. Imagine ten years ago purchasing something over $300 dollars. I'd probably have to explain to my wife's folks why I'm still fit to be married to their daughter...pun intended. There just seems to be no end of amazing releases coming out every month. It's been a good lesson in restraint..but it makes me cry watching all of the amazing releases pass by.
  8. Eva 2......Damn you nippon yasan I almost want it. I was camping with my trigger finger at the ready at hobbylink and still missed it. If any of you have ordered 2 at the recomended price I'm willing to buy it off of you. Please let me know.........:)
  9. Hey guys!!!!!! So we know it's coming. I'm very excited. What would you think if Unit 2 came out on the Rail brace seen in the rebuild movies. I'm just putting it out there, as I think it would be Fantastic!!!! but I want to know what you think. I've already "hinted" to Bandai about it. Whats you opinions???????????? p.s. have a wall paper or two
  10. My latest Macross purchase is this. Bandai Yf-19 So happy!!!!!!!
  11. I just did a Star Wars movie marathon with my friends this weekend. A new hope/ Empire strikes back and Return of the Jedi. And I realise what's lacking in the new movies. Everything the originals had!!!!! Well besides that, it was the credibility of the characters. They are real people with realistic out looks and feelings, and reacted to situations in a realistic way which gave credibility to the story. That's why I love them. They have whit and intelligence. Not the slap stick representations of real humans they have in the new ones. The Star Wars movie you want to see is right there in your DVD cabinet go pull it out and watch it. You'll be glad you did. I've decided I'll definitely wait for a week or two before I see the next one.
  12. Oh I'm loving psychi K as well on Netflicks. I'm pretty sure I spelt that wrong sorry.
  13. Just saw One punch man episode 4. I'm really loving this season dispite the quality in animation. However episode 4 was fantastic. I think the staff at JC are taking note of their critics comments and upping their game. Working on a title like this will only improve their skill beyond what they'd done previously. So I'm not to worried about the quality in the future. The scenes around Genos have always been great, and I'm excited to see what happens with King.
  14. I can't wait. It'll be good I'm sure as the original writers are working on it. Sad about Rufus. He passed away a few years ago in 2008.
  15. No that's true. Seeing the starwars trilogy as a pre teen in the 80's was literally out of this world, it was larger than life. And we were all the more enriched because of it. And nothing can take that away. Not even someone who tries to re- write the established universe or retroactively change things now. We had it good. It's just a pity in this SJ, pandering world, they took Luke's character and belittled and degraded it and disrespected it so much, that we all feel hurt. Luke the greatest Jedi of all kicked in the nuts and told to disappear. Don't worry we love and admire you Mark Hamill and know how much Luke Skywalker meant to you and all of us. We salute you.
  16. I'm worried! I think the only way this could have been saved is if TLJ was Luke visiting an alternate dimension,to see if there was a way they could defeat the fist order. And him disappearing at the end was him returning to his reality. Now if the leaked script that surfaced recently is true. Than this will be the worst ending of any saga. It will be the opposite of avengers end game. But I'm hoping that they are pulling a (Blue harvest. horror beyond imagination) on us. If not, then I think I can rightfully say that "disney ruined my childhood."
  17. Thanks Electric Indigo, I've been a fan of your work for years. I'm about the same with a few yukikaze kits on the go at once that have been sitting at various stages of repair for years. Mainly beacause I feel I've got to be on top of my game so I don't stuff them up because I want them to be perfect. I definitely whould have purchased every Oomooly product. I was looking forward to the FEP twin prop jet. In 2009 I scratch built a TNX-1 out of a bandai 1/100 RAFE but wasn't satisfied because it was only half there so I spent time and lots of money developing the other half. I tried getting in touch with Bandai visual about a manufacturing licence a couple of years ago, and even sent my good Japanese friend to Tokyo to set up an appointment.But alas they wouldn't see me as they " arn't seeing or dealing with any foreign companies for 2-3 years". So I'm planning on seeing plats, and maybe they'll buy it off of me and I can get a cut. Fingers crossed anyway. It's all still a work in process. If there's anyone out there with connections please hook me up. Here's a sneak peak it's 1/100 scale and fits both alter and bandai kits. It has instructions waterslide decals and box art and design. This prototype TNX Carrier shell alone, cost me 2 grand. Anyway. Enjoy!!
  18. Ha ha, I should read back over what I type sometimes. Yeah just so anyone didn't get it, that was "1/72".
  19. Thanks Dobber, I'll have to finish my FFR-41 MRD Yukikaze. It's a 1/72 scale with a scratch built life capsule. And movable wing surfaces. I've been holding off as I want to drop a couple of Super pheonix engines into it at 1/72 scale. I've been trying to find some 1/72 scale jets to convert them but haven't found any anywhere :(. I'll have to find someone with a resin 3D printer and do them that way. I have the files to do it. But the printer is just as elusive as the jets.
  20. (Spoiler alert to those that haven't read the novels) Both Banshee III & IV can be completely autonomous, however they were both fully manned. Banshee III was operating autonomously in the anime as the Jam had consumed the crew and was busily creating copies of them when Rei and Tomahawk came to investigate. According to the novels. The Banshee series were built in orbit and dropped through the atmosphere, to then be flown through the portal to faery. Both Banshees were vital to the FAF's survival on the Planet Faery and were serviced (meaning replenished) daily. On the resin kit the specs are- From wing tip to wing tip they are 1400 meters. Height 315M. From front to back 687M. Weight 9650 Tons. Crew 388. Cruise speed 650 km/ph. with a top speed of 730km/per hour. They have an unlimited range. In the novel Banshee III was put on meltdown remotely by the FAF to cause an evacuation, to clear it out fearing a suspected coup and / or Jam takeover. However the nuclear meltdown was to far advanced by the time it was empty and it was unable to be saved. The devastating loss of both super carriers spelled the end of the FAF on faery. The good news is that in the Anime Banshee III survived and served as the main evacuation platform for the FAF back to earth. I absolutely love the design of Banshee and after 15 years last Christmas finished banshee IV. I took a couple of really bad pics of IV. It's suspended like that in my display using fishing line. It's amazing how well it suddenly shows up when you want to take a Pic. I'll have to set it up properly and get some good ones. It took me that long as I didn't want to mess it up. Sorry to all, I did have another one but sold it and I'm still kicking myself. I'll keep searching though, as I want to make banshee III one day now that I have the colour scheme. Electric Indigo your Banshee with scratch build gantry is truly epic, and was the inspiration I needed to finish mine. I really like all of your scratch build models. I'll post a couple I've made soon.
