  1. Livestream has a look at the runners and parts breakdown
  2. Just out of frame of the monster we have Makina VFG. Back when the original VFG came out I ended up buying 5 so that I can do custom Walkure figures for all of them but I sat on my ass and now it's a pointless project it seems.
  3. Eh, not really sure how explosive the joints are gonna be at that scale but at least this should serve as a starting point for fixing the post and then puttying over the joints.
  4. Quite soft looking on the detail but I guess that's to be expecting if people want to emulate Bandai
  5. The April 1st announcement covers what will be shown at Shizuoka. Similarly to the way the double month announcement in August/September pre-announces stuff that will be shown at All Japan Hobby Show in late September.
  6. Well, got my hands on the Fire Valk and Sound Booster. Just Blazer Valk left but I'm done shopping for the time being
  7. So I came across this through youtube recommendations and it's still very much available and awesome.
  8. Going through some older Model Graphix and found this in issue #222
  9. awww, it's only a repaint Rereleases:
  10. Or in less than 48 hours? Hasegawa tweeted out that they're back to the usual thing of announcing June and July releases together to pre-empt Shizuoka Hobby Show. Announcement will be April 1st at 13:00 JST
  11. So today I've stumbled across this gem
  12. Side by side: Comparison to the old Imai/Bandai pod size And seems the knee joint is indeed just four polycaps
  13. Ok now I'm legitimately tempted to build the chamber behind the nozzle and paint it with one of those paints that Anish Kapoor is not allowed to have On a less silly note it would probably have some kind of structure to the fuel grain, right? I don't know too much about hybrid rockets but aren't they usually on the longer side as far as aspect ratio of diameter vs length does? With how the Super packs's dimensions are the room for the combustion chamber is kinda wide and stubby, plus a pretty large throat and I assume that's not idea because it seems like it would let just oxidizer spill without fully interacting with the fuel grain? Maybe there is a need for a more elaborate injection structure after all.
  14. Does it also give any more detail as to the structure inside the super pack engines? It's quite a revelation that those are hybrid and not liquid rockets. Ever since I got the PLAMAX Gerwalk I've been struggling to figure out what to put inside the two big nozzles because I hate the stock ones but not a single piece of DYRL lineart gives ANY detail for what's inside the nozzles besides a black void. I've been on and off hunting for the perfect greeblies to use as an injector plate deep past the throat but now that assumption is out the window.
  15. Ended up using scans of two slightly busted boxes to cobble together clean pic. Hopefully I can get my hands on the Fire and Blazer valks eventually too.
  16. April announcements: Max & Milia VF-1 Eggplanes!!! http://www.hasegawa-model.co.jp/product/65876/ Meanwhile Armored Battroid is already scheduled for another run, along with 1/48 weapons set and 1/72 stands
  17. Possibly looks like at least some big name modelers are getting advanced copies Pod seems to have an internal support bulkhead like some big ship models
  18. Hobby Search has the manual scans up for the Armored Valk so that you can build it in your head while you wait for it to arrive https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/image/10813347
