  1. What’s the over/under on this being available in the US since we’re now in a “golden age” of BW and HG working together?
  2. My renewal 27, with Brera’s Super parts, has been on display going on five years now. I transform it once in a great while, no issues yet.
  3. Changed later as part of the transition from practical models to CGI models. This model represents the Bonchune as seen in the Voyager episode “Message in a Bottle,” and by that time the CG was being used. The stand “squeezes” the nacelle pylons into that shape. Out of the stand they’re pretty much dead straight. This is one stand that’s going to be replaced.
  4. Got my Nebula XL, the USS Bonchune, in today. I must say that I like it; for the most part the paint is good and the details right. The black windows… some need help. The magazine has a reasonable amount of how the Nebula class got designed and made; half of it is devoted to the TNG episode where the Nebula class and the Cardassian race got their start, “The Wounded.”
  5. Wings have been truncated, looks like, meaning this may be optimized for space use… but then why add a dogtooth to the canard?
  6. Holy crap. I never thought I’d see the day. Wonder how much Covid had to do with this, in terms of losses, so that BW and HG HAD to get into bed together?
  7. It’s an uninspired redesign, gotta say. One more change they made is the wing roots, they’ve been extended forward and the canards have had their rear surfaces cut out to accommodate it. I wonder if the canopy is solid like on the 262 for the holographic imagery system.
  8. They look awfully close to me. I have the Super Parts set, even though I don’t own a 171, specifically for the missiles.
  9. Happy Valentine’s Day! Courtesy of Saotome Nanda.
  10. https://apple.news/AIIeIapsISrOq7l-2FauHTw I’ll be pouring one out for him, lads.
  11. Boeing did a crap job with the single(!) prototype and also did a crap job selling it. Lockheed had two prototypes that wouldn’t need a whole lot of redesign and completed the flight test programs with some extra activities thrown in.
  12. I was about to say... VF-5? Cheap? Intended for export? Kawamori’s an airplane nerd? Look no further than a transformable Northrop F-5 Freedom Fighter. F-20 Tigershark if you’re feeling it.
  13. Inbit your punnish tongues, please!
  14. You’re welcome @RavenHawk!
  15. It’s a shot glass. It’s either full or empty. Anything else, someone isn’t trying hard enough.
  16. Correct. The right answer. Some other stuff.
  17. Damn. One of the great Justices of the Court. https://apple.news/As3UivieOQCGdADbHzSho9A
