WAVE anybody ?

Post by Hydra Mirage » Wed Jan 26, 2005 10:11 pm

I'm pretty new to all this.
I know how well regarded Volks is in the FSS field.
WSC seems to hold their own as well.
But what of WAVE ?
I almost never hear them mentioned here.
They seem to have a lot of interesting 1/144 kits.
In what regard do people here hold them ?
How is their detailing & proportioning ?

Proportioning on most seems OK. Detailing isn't as complex as recent 1/100s. I just never really buy 1/144s since they are half the cost as 1/100s but like.... 1/6 as impressive.

You can browse HLJ or Toyspress' factories page to see some pics.

And if you want to buy some, there's a guy selling a bunch of the original Wave 1/144s on ebay right now. He's reliable. And no one ever bids on the kits (people just aren't interested in 1/144s), so you can probably grab some kits at a good price. 1/144 Berlin Green for just $30....

Thanks KOG. I'll look into that.

Yeah, I have a 1/144 collection of the 'old school' MH's, KOG, LED & Empress Flame... I'd like to get the Black Knight and Junchoon to finish the set.

All the Majestic Stand MH's I've bought are 1/100's
