Which LED...

Post by WayS'Lo' » Mon Nov 22, 2004 2:07 am

Ive bben out of the FSS info circuit for a while now and was thinking about getting a new clear LED. e2046 have 2 up for preorder at the moment, this one http://www.e2046.com/trade/productview/2433 which im asuming is the Volks one from a few years ago and this one, http://www.e2046.com/trade/productview/4127 which im assuming from the scale is either wsc or... the other company, silcon tribe? Anyway more information on either would be very helpful. Course i could go get the 'new' wave 1/100 and show my support for the plastic market :wink: .
Also, if anyone knows, whcih of the two SR03s is the all round best? ( not neccessaruly accurate) its probably my fav MH and i still don't have any version of it... I really like the Wave 1/144 but i cant seem to find it on recast anywhere. Come to think of it everywhere is out of stock for the 1/100s too but at least most places have it listed.

First is SAV LED V3 from Volks which is the one I prefer. Second is from Silicon Tribe. Althought Silicon is listed as 1/72, it'll probably be in similar size compared to Volks LED V3 which was pretty big for a 1/100 scale.

As for SR3s, both Volks and WSC aren't nearly perfect or accurate, I think. Volks MM SR3 seem to capture the essence of an Engage SR-3, which is simple and slim. I like some areas of WSC SR3, mainly the head and chest which look more accurate to Knight Flags, but the proportion is off...

The Silicon Tribe kit seems to be 3cm taller than the Volks one. That isn't really that much. I would just get the one you prefer. I always prefer the Volks interpretations.

Thats what i was thinking, they both look nice but e2046 has a pic of the armourless skeleton for the st kitand it looks fantastic. Does anyone have a decent pic of the volks skeleton?
