Thanks Hitori... One more piece of the puzzle falls into place.

A question regarding pronounciation.

Something's been bothering me for a while. With regards to Barbaluse V, Christine V, and Erinuth Dai Gu Fillmore V, how exactly do you pronounce the "v"? Is this a last name that would be pronounced "vee", or a numeral which should be pronounced as "the fifth."? Part of what got me thinking was an o...

Pearl powder is simply an additive that you can add to paint, or better yet, to a clear medium for airbrushing. It was pioneered by the automotive industry in the late 70s, but has become fairly common-place nowadays; you can find a good quality pearl powder in a multitude of hues & colors at any go...

LoL! That too. :) I remember having someone do translations for me about a decade or so ago regarding the Peidoll Spire. It seems to be some sort of "wide-angle radiation laser" weapon, but we weren't able to figure out any more than that. I have no clue if this is similar to the Power Launchers tha...

I still don't like the comic version... particularly the new buster (or whatever that gun is on the right arm)
It's a Peidoll Spire.

There's at least one FAC model in 1/100 out there, but I assume that you're refering to the established garage kit firms, in which case Work Shop Cast is slated to release one... Presumably after the Gast Temple which is already in the pipeline.

You won't be disappointed with the Yellow Submarine jonts: I've used them for both my Tachikoma and Regult models with great results. If anything, I'd recommend them highly for absolutely all of the MM series 1/100 kits. The large ball-joints are surprisingly tough, and can be made even tougher: I'v...

Hi Sheizzel.

I know that both Wave and Yellow Submarine make double-joints, which would be perfect for the knee on your kit. The latter also makes double-jointed acrylic ball-joints, though I have no idea if they'd be small enough for your model.

I used to have that kit. The resin really wasn't all that bad; it sanded very well. Nice model, albeit a bit small.

I've been seeing a few good original kits up on ebay lately, but virtually no one bids on them for some reason.

Hi Hitori. Indeed, chem etching wouldn't give you the depth you might want for that item. My suggestion would be to have someone sculpt a pattern that could be used to produced a black rubber mold and then cast it in pewter (white metal.) From there, you can have it polished and/or nickel-plated, an...

Here, this will illustrate my point. I've used Leopold Chrysalis as my stand-in headdliner model, posing against the Black Knight by WSC. I actually downsized Leopold a little. Based on images I've seen, it seems that he's about as tall as Rogner, and Rogner is just over 2m tall, if I recall. Anyhoo...

I agree, can't get enough of the outrageous designs (Boowray, Phantom, Jagd, etc) within reason, of course. I'm sorry, but the Gast Temple just rubs me the wrong way ( I still think it looks like a Golgoth.) :wink: I think that the stinker for me is seeing how roomy & spacious the Fatima & Headdline...

Hi Elemental. Thanks, that clears up a lot :) Indeed, I tend to have a soft-spot for the heavy MHs, but I can still appreciate the splendour and gracefulness of the lightweights; they just compliment each other. Actually, my only "minor" issue with the phantom is due to the size of the torso. Everyt...
