Characters 6: Twin Tower

Post by Tachyon » Fri Jun 04, 2004 3:05 am

I just received my scanner-fodder copy of this book today. The only mortar headd covered is the Jagt Mirage but it's a challenge I can't pass up. The pages are simply huge. How can a person successfully scan the fold-out poster? When I get back from the conference I'm going to give it a try.

Well, I did send you the translated info on the Jagd Mirage. Its just up to you to get the images scanned.

If you find it difficult to scan them, there is a Jagd Mirage page on the internet. If you can get ahold of the webmaster, he might let you use some of his pics. He used to frequent Wax Traxx, but I'm not sure if he still comes around or not...

Wait till you see the breakdown on this thing on the site. Its positively monsterous!

Most Mortar Headds are about the same size as Gundams. (15 meters tall at the shoulder, between 18 and 20 meters tall total) The Jagd Mirage is 3 times their size (its 46 meters tall, not counting its Buster Cannons) so its the same scale as most Mobile Armors from Gundam...

It's Characters 6 so it has lots of art of characters/fatimas from Five Star Stories. The only mortar headds it has is the Jagd Mirage but it has really nice art for it. I still need to finish scanning all of it.
