FSS is totally emo

The only 2 designs in all of FSS that I really have no liking for are the old style Barunja and Devoncha.

actually, i LOVE every other design and FSS is my fav manga. its just that the Boowray and Flame Empress dont tickle my mecha fancy.
haha, im actually a big fan of the Devonsha, it has a clunky knightlike charm to it. Its really the boowray's styling and coloring that gets to me, I do respect its firepower and specs in the manga.

- and i started on my WAVE KOG, and it does need alot of work in terms of seams and part fit, especially since alot of the parts are just joined by flat surfaces rather than some sort of guide or joint.

Whereas I love the very idea of MM! Choose your SAV! Really.. most SAV kits lack imagination for their poses.. and just have the stand there and look decent kind of pose.

I intend to build some MMs with Yellow Sub joints, I'll tell you guys how that goes one day.

I did a quick set up and found out the height of Volks MM Last Junchoon. As expected, it is small compared to other kits...It stands at slightly taller than 21cm.

I'm afraid I might be overdoing it on the pins... I've been using paperclip for small pieces and the wire from clothes hanger for anything big enough to take it. So far the kit's solid even during test fit though! I use a variable speed dremel for my drilling. It's a hold over from building and converting metal minis from the citidel range. When I build something it does NOT come apart :D

Sums up the entire engage series in 2 words really :) I do think the Wave 1.144 looks nicer... but more to the point, does anyone know a p;ace still selling the Judgement on recast? e2046 and hf don't have it...

For 3 mm or higher, use Micromark's Mini Rubing cutter, it's a clean cut w/o bending the side edge of the brass rod, part no. 20132. Only $6.95

For 1 - 2 mm, I would go w/ Grobet Jewellers Series Box End Cutter, part no. 46.118 for 4.5" in length cutter, part no. 46.120 for 5.25" in length cutter. They are right angle cutter, so shouldn't cause any side edge bending neither. They are very high quality, made in Germany.
If you buy a pet from pet stores , you are encouraging those breeders to breed more. This is the condition that they lives in:

Judgement mirage, another name for Last Junchoon but the one i prefer cause i think it sounds cooler :D
No where seem to have it, not even a record of it being 'out of stock' tho e2046 does have a picture of it, its under their Junchoon land booster type. I think its the Volks MM Shiezzel has above but i still think the Wave 1/144 interpretation looks so, so much nicer. Its just a shame i don't get 1/144s. It , and the 1/144 Wave Engage Sr3 ( which, rather ironically, i can't find in recast either, just the 1/100 versions) are things of beauty. Might have to make scale exceptions for the engage series. :roll:

E2046 carries two different 1/144 Last Junchoon kits but not 1/100. One is from Kaiyodo sculpted by Akira Tani http://www.geocities.co.jp/Playtown-Kni ... lation.htm and the other is from this web site http://www9.ocn.ne.jp/~syujyu/ljpr.htm . Wave never made one. Good things come in small sizes in the case of these 1/144s.

You must be talking about this picture in E2046 http://www.e2046.com/imagecatalogue/imageview/22600 . It is indeed the same as the one i have. The pictures was taken from here http://gonao075.hp.infoseek.co.jp/jyuno.htm .

And how did I ever miss this talk of the SEXAY SR-2?

Sad to hear that it's so short.... yes, sculpting our own seems to be the only real way about this.

... Hrm. Yes.

What annoys me is the precise fact the these great kits are never recasted. Instead, we get the ugly ones like the screwed up 1/144 Vatshu III (WAVE) and the Booray.

Really..
