  1. This Little Lady just arrived! It's going to be a fun project; the kit is 1/48 scale and the main fuselage (Nose cone to engine exhaust) measure's almost 16 inches. Either I haven't built a 1/48 scale kit in a long time, or this Fighter is big!
  2. Yep, just shy of 13 inches tall. Definitely an Alpha only release, a Beta would be massive. I would imagine this is going to be rather expensive.
  3. I love the extended main guns & correct colors, makes all the difference! We really need one of these in 1/3000... Bandai or Arcadia, I'm on board.
  4. Isa, Yoon & J from STAYC having some fun & not missing a beat!
  5. I just realized I phrased that the wrong way... as you said, Same kit but with the armor.
  6. If it's a whole new kit that includes the Armor, I'll be glad I waited.
  7. Awesome, The Outfield is such an underrated band, so many good songs. I'm always amazed they were never more popular than they were.
  8. Shouldn't #6 actually be #1 on your list of cons?
  9. Thanks @Chas, I went with the Tamiya Grey-green and up close it looks good, I like it. I figure when the decals are on & then a wash plus clear coat it'll look spot on. Now I just need to settle on a color for Yellow's Ride Armor.
  10. Thanks @MechTech, yep, she's not a very forgiving kit. I'm definitely going to do next time (What you're almost always supposed to do) which is pre-paint everything first, then assemble with most likely some touch painting to do. If you were going to paint Yellow's Ride Armor... what color/shade of Paint would you use, I'm assuming it's purple & not a dark blue. Suggestions welcome.
  11. So many great builds & customs, looking good everyone!! Here is my update with the Aoshima Ride Armor kit. Still a pain in the butt to assemble but once that part is done, painting is a bit easier. I'll just have to do a lot of masking on the parts. Once this baby has the decals on & a Flory's wash she should be looking really good in the end. I've learned quite a few things with this first attempt so that (fingers crossed) Yellow's Ride Armor should go much smoother.
  12. That's one impressive collection of customs, love it!! One of these days you need to finish that 1/48 VT-1... it would be the Ultimate one of a kind as I don't think anyone else has ever attempted it. Your 1/55 customization skills are next level!
  13. Hi all, I've never actually built a Hasegawa Battroid kit before, can the wings swing out with missiles attached like the pic attached or will some model magic from a Fighter mode kit be involved?
  14. Thank you, good sir. I like this Gunbuster but I have to admit, I'd love to see Bandai do a re-issue or a whole new mold of its GX-34 with improved joints & better plastic. Every time I'm tempted to get one of off Mandarake, there's always pics of the plastic cracking or getting ready too.
  15. @Duke Togo Then this is our GUNBUSTER thread for now. @no3Ljm That CCS Gunbuster... when & where can you find that one?
  16. Were these ever fully completed? (Painted, decals, etc.)
