There's only been 2 1/144 that I know of.

The older one sculpted by Tani and released by Kaiyodo... and the FAC kit that later got released (in slightly modified form) through Wave.

And yes, there is a 1/100, though it's kinda old. It's part of Volks MM series.

Got ours yesterday.

I'm absolutely floored with the quality of the casting on this so damn little kit.

Will upload the pictures when my internet is transferred to the new apartment.

Got mine today... Love it. Hard. I looked, but couldn't tell... Does it come with an empty sheath? Or is the one pictured on the box just a modified one of the sheath with the sword in it?

Nope, at least not the original version of the kit from FAC. The blade and the sword handle were cast separately on the original FAC kit which gives the builder the option of having the sword held in hand or inside the sheath.

It shouldn't be too difficult to scratchbuild a hollow sheath.

No empty sheath. Just clip off the sword hilt.

Here are the pics I promised..

Rest are in my photobucket.

I have more detailed pics that I just need to crop and upload later.
