In the motorcycle section of the Eternal Story article, you mentioned there were designs for a Bike locker in the Starleaf. But you don't have any pictures of it on the site, are they in that book of yours or do they simply never show them?

Page 143 of the Gall Force Planning Book. I didn't scan it originally because the line art image is poorly reproduced in the book. It's kind of sketchy looking. Plus, I think a Netflix DVD showed up that afternoon and I rushed to the TV.

I could scan it sometime if people want to see it but probably not tonight. My boys want to play outside and they're quite young (need supervision).

Ah, okay. Well, whenever you get around to it, I am quite interested in pretty much anything concerning the StarLeaf. Especially parts of the ship you don't get to see in the movie :D

This is an image from the Blossom (which, actually, is part of the Star Leaf).

Woot! To be honest, its kinda how i imagined it >_>

But i didn't expect it to be in the blossom, kinda makes sense though, why would you need motorcycles on a starship? Much more sense for them to be contained in the landing craft.

How did you get this book of yours? >_> And is it still available?

I found it on the shelf at used book stores in Tokyo May last year. There were extra copies on the shelf. Take the Ikebukuro stop on the Yamanote Line.

I need to go back and check again, but I think that there was a similar design in Mospeada because the Cyclones in there were so similar. I'll have to check and see.

Darn, I'll keep that in mind, though I doubt I'll have money for a trip to tokyo for a few years. Whatever editions of that book that those people have now will probably be gone by then...
