Some Scanning

Post by Tachyon » Thu May 03, 2012 12:46 pm

I spent some time last night scanning black and white line art from the pages of FSS Reboot 7. There are several line art images of mortar headds that only appeared as color images before. Not really new images.

FSS work never ends.

...if it ever does, you could always try cracking the code of L-Gaim and Gothicmade. :p

(It would be neat for a corner of Gears' FSS page to feature a piece on how L-Gaim metamorphosed into FSS.)

I have good material to scan for an L-Gaim section. Need to find some nice time, though.

I've got my stuff together so I can get back to scanning black and white line art from FSS Reboot volumes this weekend. What's the latest on the Internal Structure of MH article?

I'm translating the Ezlaser Engine section now, but I keep laughing at "over one trillion horsepower" and it slows me down some.

Heh heh. Cool. Thanks for the work. I know translating isn't fun.

Today I scanned and cleaned up all the black and white images I want from Reboot volumes 6 and 7. It may be tomorrow that I resize and post the images on the FSS pages. I've already got my Internal Structure scans cleaned up.

I swear, I'm having an anime blitz weekend. As I type this I'm listening to Gall Force soundtracks back-to-back. Earlier today I watched more episodes of the original Dirty Pair TV series. Yesterday I finally saw the Harmageddon movie from 1983.

Can anyone tell me what the heck this is? I call it "Big Hat." I'm going to hazard a guess and say it's a rejected design for Z Gundam. This was scanned today from Reboot volume 6.

The title is literally "Robot in a straw hat 2". From the description, it looks like he's just been redrawing this one forever for the heck of it, and it's been picking up weird influences along the way.

The symbol on the robot's neck makes it look like a Neo Zion machine (U.C. Gundam).

levrin, is there anything interesting in that text? Is it worth translating?

Ouch! I'm exhausted. I posted all the images I scanned to the FSS pages. I'm too tired to list all the pages right now. Maybe tomorrow.

I'm going to heat dinner, back up my high-res images and veg out with some Dirty Pair anime.

Looks like some nice info in that Scritti scan, though there are a couple side references to other MH that haven't actually shown up in the story yet.

This weekend I'm going to start scanning Dirty Pair materials. Is there anything more for FSS? Anything I forgot or skipped? Let me know if there is.
