Hey KOG,

I'd be interested in the WSC Kulvulcan you mentioned.
Can you clarify what version it is (how many parts are G-system ?) or post/email me some photos ?
Any links to a WSC/G-system mod kit would be cool.

Thanks.

Hydrospan:

it doesn't become "gummi bear" soft really, but it's not hard enough to drop on a table, and very large (over 1ft long) parts sag under their own weight, which is another problem. Once enlarged, they are also very suceptible to damage, so they have to be handled with care. Mind you, for converting 1/144 parts to 1/100, it's no trouble at all.

It's a good buy. KOG combined the best of both world by selecting the better parts of ea. kit and put them together.

I think they only used a smaller kit as example and made bigger parts from Polyurethan and PS. The parts are clean and details can be added a lot easier. Also cheaper than the silicon or rubber for the mold. In the same time you get rid of the deformation you could have made the parts from scratch.

Materials are almost always cheaper than time in man hours. So Silicone and polyurethane are usually not an issue in gatting a project done economically. However fast isn't always better. Just cheaper.

Hmm... the G sys parts I kept were mainly the shield, and any parts that replaced WSC decals with sculpted detail. I often tend to prefer sculpted details over decals. Since the WSC original uses decals for the V emblems and dancing doll insignia, I kept the G sys parts which replaced those decals with sculpting. i.e. shoulders, lower legs. Also kept the G sys shield, which as I mentioned, is larger than the WSC original version. Other than those majorly different parts, I mostly just compared each part on a case by case basis and kept the part that seemed to have the best sharpness of detail and quality of casting.

I will try to post some photos of the parts soon.

You can see some G sys bang doll pics here: http://mechadream.com/GsysBangdoll.htm

Included there is a shield comparison pic.

wonder why they didn't try to make it 1/35 scale, as it would entice owners of 1/35 scale FSS kits to get it....

I'm starting to get used to G system making weird choices with their scales.

Sure, there's not really many other 1/48 FSS kits out there besides the ancient kaiyodo 1/48 Cross Mirage, but let's make a new 1/48 anyway! :x

Don't forget the old Kaiyodo 1/48 vinyl Black Knight.

I guess those old kaiyodo 1/48s just aren't very memorable. :) Of course, MOST old kaiyodo FSS kits weren't too memorable... Not in a good way anyway.

think both the Cross and Black Knight were a reasonably good effort then with the technology
