THe 7th pic. from the top, at the left, is the Clouds Schatze the Volks ver.? It seems very big from the picture.

Which company's 1/100 Maglow can make that pose?

Also, at the very bottom just above the Black Knight, refresh my memory, what's the name of that blue MH again? And who makes it?

Did Groon came out of FAC 2004? And what scale is it?

The Clouds Schatze is actually the Work Shop Cast kit; beautiful model, by the way.

The blue MH is the old Volks AF series Boowray. I'm not entirely sure about the Maglow model.

Say Happy: do you still hear from Henry at all? I haven't seen him since before Wax Trax went down :|

The Clouds Schatze/Speed Mirage name issue always confuses me, but isn't that flying pose kit (from WSC) usually referred to as 'Speed Mirage'? And the standing pose WSC kit is called Clouds Schatze. I may be confused though...

As for the Maglow... it doesn't look like the Volks (which you can see lower down on the page), but it also doesn't look like the MH Saga pics of the kaiyodo Maglow... so I really have no idea which Maglow it is.

That blue Volks AF Boowray looks really nice! Put into a unique pose, and painted quite nicely... I had always planned to make my Boowray into the yellow version... but this makes the blue very appealing.

The Groon is 1/100 I think. And I don't think it showed up in FAC. At least as far as I remember.

John: I contacted Henry in mid-October. Mostly a brief 'hello, are you still there?'. I did get a reply - he seems OK, but very busy, and maybe in the midst of some hard times. I sent a follow-up message when he replied, but got no answer to that...

must be scratch build then. Prior to FAC 2004, I don't recall Volks, WSC, Kaiyodo, or those smaller shops made a Groon.

When that Boowray color changes to blue, I totally forgot about the fact that it is a boowray. This is the very first time I've seen a blue boowray.

I got the name wrong in the prev. post. I believe standing pose is called Speed Mirage and flying mode is called Clouds Schatze.

That is correct. It is scratchbuilt.

There are quite a few colors of Boowray in fact. Volks factories page shows red, blue, and yellow versions, and there are others as well.

Seeing and talking about the Boowray brought back the bad memory I had with this kit. What was supposed to be mine never came...KOG and others knows what I'm talking about :cry: .
