  1. Damn you Thud for that last picture! lol That one really does get to you huh? The Quess one is also a bit harsh... I noticed that there is a screen grab from Build Fighters Dive, haven't watched that yet. Any good? I think every episode has camero from one of the characters at least and was always fun trying to find them. Might have to rewatch TRY. Unfortunately Will, the core Fighter is just a lump of plastic in the HG version. It doesn't dock with the suit (as is mentioned in the episode). I was thinking maybe modifying it to do but it might be way too much work. But I have thought about it. The more I look at this suit the more I want to change it. I'm thinking of a Titans purple/blue colour on the "wings"... or maybe a version of the X-2. Kind Regards, Dazz
  2. Well, I think it reminds me of Deathsythe Hell if you want to split hairs. Lol Deathsythe didn't have the black wings. Then again you could say it has a bit of Sandrock Kai EW in it too... Hmm... I've never actually read the manga, if I can find a copy I'll give it a go. I know Crossbone is loved by the fans in the same way that Advance of Zeta/Sentienal are. You're correct Thud, it is one of the smaller suits like F-91 is and as such less armoured too, so a 120mm gun would kill it. I have a few ideas I want to use on it, thinking of stealing some of the parts from the X-2 as well. @LotusArenco I also love Build Fighters, it's such a simple idea that it's genius. It's a good way to get people into the show and Gunpla in general. It's also fun for a geek like me to pick out all of the easter eggs in it. I'm still not sure on the character gunplas they've released. The Archangel one is weird. However I've seen a Titans version of Fumina which I want to get - don't judge me! lol not sure Airfix could do the same, could you imagine the uproar if a kid put a 109's wings onto a Spitfire? Lol Think the first job will be to sort the cloth/armor. Kind Regards, Dazz
  3. So while moving ships today in EVE I was doing some work on this one. She is now finished as a model. I just need to plan what I am going to do with this. Here she is in all her glory. Even though this is am HG it is a tiny kit. Probably about the same size as Wing Zero. She is the same height as a can of coke... go on... ask how I know. I love the cutlass and sword. The Gun is pretty cool also. So now comes the planning stage. For some reason all of the white bits are pearlescent and makes it look very toy-ish. This will not be caried over to the new version. Just remember that I have 3 un-finished GM's in my stash.... need to find them and restart them. Kind Regards, Dazz
  4. Evening One and All, I've had this kit sitting on my shelf for a while and now, it's bugging me. So I decided to build it, please see below. This is the Team Try Fighters version and as far as I am aware the only version in HG? The "cloth" bit always reminds me of Deathsythe Hell which is also a cool mech. You can see the episode it's from below - this is uploaded by Gundam Info (Sunrise I believe) so it's all legal. I'm going to try an make it more the "original" version, I just need to find some decent source material for this. I did purchase loads of the re-released Bandai Decals a while back, so I can use the warning decals on that. I need to find somewhere that does the Skullheart ones tho or even a decent sized skull decal (not The Skull and Crossbones). This will be a long term project at the end of this I have a spaceship to build. All the sprues... yay Stuff I can't read... Pretty pictures and more stuff I can't read.... Cool pictures and the Core Fighter, but more writing I can't read. This is where I was up to the other day. Not sure I like the armor plates/thrusters being attached as they are. More to follow... Kind Regards, Dazz

    Bandai 1/60 mkii Gundam

    Sorry dude. Nothing will ever beat 08th MS Team (my favourite VA is in it for a start) but Unicorn comes a close 2nd. It's a cool looking Gundam, not as cool as the Deep Striker however... but thats more of a mobile armor that mobile suit. Lets not forget my beloved Hazel's either The main ship even looks likes a pirate ship... it's very novel. Stardust Memory is a great show, very dated music and hair styles wise (it hasn't aged well). The fight with the GP-01 at the end, pure class. I really am loving the work you are putting into this Brundledonk, I could learn alot from this post. Kind Regards, Dazz

    Astrophotography on a phone!

    My avatar picture was taken on an iPhone 3GS through an 8" Dobsonian's eye piece. That was 5-6 years ago. I've also managed to get pictures of Saturn and her rings and also Jupiter with Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto on a phone. You could get a really good picture of Jupiter if you used the right equipment and quite a few 30 second subs. Kind Regards, Dazz

    Gundam related question ?

    As far as I am aware, only the Rifleman and Marauder are ripped off from Macross... Actually I think there's a Valkyrie but can't remember it's name in Battletech lore. You can buy a 1/20 scale Super Valkyrie, but expect to get a loan out for it. The only "kits" of Mechs I know off are free to download papercraft models. I am planning a scale model of a Stormcrow/Ryoken, just need to plan it out first. Kind Regards, Dazz

    Bandai 1/60 mkii Gundam

    Kamille and Emmas machine is actually the same machine. In the beginning of the show she pilots a Rick Dias, but after the Zeta Gundam is built she's given the Mk.II by Kamille. It's at this point that the Mk.II can dock with the G-Defenser to make the Super Gundam. This is a very watered down version of what happens. I can't remember if Emma is a Newtyle or not... Thud? Just a shame what happens to her. I've started building the XM-1 Crossbone Full Cloth Gundam, now that's toy like. Kind Regards, Dazz

    Looking very good there Brundledonk. The paintwork is very impressive. The effort and work gone into is definitely worth it. I agree with Thud and personally vote Emmas machine as she was a great pilot. I don't think there is any differences between the pilots machines however? Kind Regards, Dazz

    Voted for two kits that I do not already own. Kind Regards, Dazz
  11. Evening everyone, Hope everyone has had a good weekend? Well I have gotten to the stage where I am happy with the Horsa. I will not bother with an RFI as there are too many errors with the kit. I will do another one at a later date with all the information I have generiously been given in this thread. Pictures below. That last one is my fav, I love that decal - as LostCosmonuts has said, it really does bring it to live. @LostCosmonauts Wow I love your Dakota and Horsa! Very cool there. I do have a Dakota to build at some time. However I have a few to get finished yet. As can be seen, I didn't put any of the pokey out bits as I know they will get broken off. Which is cool, makes my job a little easier. Well 2 hours after taking these photos, my girlfriend moved the model from the kitchen table and dropped it. She smashed the nose clean off... it's repairable, but she knows she is in the dog house. Stilll not 100% sure on those roundels... Thank you one and all for putting up with this for so long. Hope you all like it! Kind Regards, Dazz

    Looking good there Shelliecool! Good luck with that seam. I'm looking forward to more. I have this kit in my ministash and will be building it soon, but will be an armed Red Arrow. I used to have a poster on my wall a kid with an Red Arrow carrying dual Sidewinders and the 30mm Aden cannon. Kind Regards, Dazz
  13. I'm game, count me in. 1983 was the year I was born however my mental age is more closer to 2003! Just got to find something now. Kind Regards, Dazz
  14. Because that is just too easy! Stop trying to make everything easier! Kind Regards, Dazz
  15. Afternoon Chaps, Just seen this and I like the initial idea put forward by Jedlam. The initial idea does remind me of the Starter Set GB we did a number of years ago (2 or 3?), I personally built the new (at the time) Tiger Moth from only what was in the kit/set (it is sitting infront of me now). I don't know about other people, but I had so much fun in that GB because it was taking me back to my childhood when I built a model in an afternoon. This proposal from Jedlam sounds like an extension of that. Why don't we pick a starter set or just starter sets in general (there is a few) and see what people can do when they have the extra tools - but rule out AF stuff bar decals? Just a suggestion to keep the price down and the potential numbers of entrants higher. I would also put forward my interest if the kit was right (I like the idea of the Stuka). Kind Regards, Dazz
