  1. The lit areas of the superstructure are moulded in clear plastic so no fiddly fibre optics to deal with. Paint the areas then drill into the clear to produce points of light. From a cost point of view the lit version is 12,960Yen (about £91) and the unlit version is 7,560Yen (about £54) so not as expensive as some have suggested. Confirmed at 320mm long and due in a galaxy near you in August.
  2. There is an English translation here. http://www.mech9.com/2015/03/172-tie-fighter-construction-manual.html?m=1 Cheers,
  3. IF you are looking to build a 1/144 Hoth diorama with Bandai's AT-AT and the vehicle scale AT-ST and Snowspeeder then JPG have just released a Hoth set with 4 Shield Generators, 3 Turrets and 2 Dishes, £40 plus postage, should be on the website at the weekend or PM. Cheers, Warren

    Bomber County Gateway Trust Memorial

    Thought a few of you might be interested in this. Through work I have got involved with the Bomber County Gateway Trust who are looking to erect a life size statue (not replica) of a Lancaster Mk1 just off the A46 at Norton Disney near Newark as a memorial to Lincolnshire's role within Bomber Command. The statue will stand some 20m in the air and be designed to look like the Lancaster is returning to base after a raid. The statue will be based on VN-N R5689 which crashed close to the site in 1942. Currently they have just completed the foundations and are looking to erect the podium section n April with the statue going up in July. If you want any further info on the project the website is: http://www.bombergatewaytrust.co.uk/ Cheers, Warren
  5. Revell are just adding a sticker to the Bandai box by the looks of it rather than reboxing. Saw some photos from one of the recent Japanese toy/model shows but nothing new there in the SW front from Bandai.
  6. Glad you like them Mike, Nick's decals are very good and usually have the weathering built in!! If anyone is interested I have decals for a red, blue or green Blockade Runner, though only 2 each of the blue and green. Cost is £7 plus £1 P+P within the UK, postage to Europe will be £2. If you are in the US it would be best to contact Nick direct through his FB page Cosmos Models. If you want a set drop me a PM or if you are at the Bolton Show on 20th Jan I will save you a set to pick up there. Cheers, Warren

    Revell USS Voyager

    Shiny!! Ooops, wrong franchise! Very nice build.
  8. Got 15 sets of decals coming for the Blockade Runner, looking like they will be £9 a set incl UK postage, initially only got red sets as the kit stickers, there may be green and blue sets available at a later date. People have said that Bandai being a Japanese company the kits are small to suit the size of Japanese houses, though that theory was blown out of the water by the 1/72 falcon, so I guess anything is possible! There is a resin 1/350 Medical frigate available from JPG Productions but be prepared to part with £550!
  9. That cold place the other side of the front door!
  10. Will do, Should have them for the Bolton Show, if you fancy a trip out
  11. I might have a solution for the Blockade Runner, a contact in US has done some waterslide decals so I'm hoping to get a few sets!

    it's CHRISTMAS!!!!!

    Here's condition No. 2 Kallisti!!
  13. You also only get stickers, no waterslide decals in either of the new droid kits!!
  14. It might be worth trying to get a couple of cheap head casts to practice on. Mitches Military Models usually have seconds heads available at shows for a few quid. Might be worth contacting them if they are not at a show near you. https://mitchesmilitarymodels.co.uk/
  15. If it was of Klingon construction you could use the cloaking device, though that is a different franchise!!
