The Moebius 2001 EVA pod is so big, I need more space.  I'd better suit up...

Ok, OK, stopping here for real.  Honest.

I think buyer's remorse will set in some time during construction, when the hull halves are joined.  (I already tried it on, and it fits over my head!)  Anyway, the pod gets put aside for now so I can work on the several GBs I joined plus the K'tinga.

But, I do want to see the K'tinga progress, so I'll digress... Wink
 
On a good note, I did find those Fumiji beetles in Japan. I'm waiting until after the first to pull the trigger!

Just arrived today by our postie.


It is a big box and stuffed full of plastic, but no metal gun barrel or side skirts. Initial inspection over a cuppa shows me that the full interior is complete and accurate and the only thing is to try and find a replacement metal barrel and tracks. There is a mix of sprues with some labelled Panther and others labelled Jagdpanther and a look through the build manual shows lots of alternative parts. The roof plate is crystal clear which means that you can see down into the fighting compartment.


This build, once it gets onto my bench is going to be a complex one but will look good and I will have to play with some of the upper hull components to work out if I can do any other display options.

And yes, the hull can actually enclose my big, fat head, which is no small feat!  (Yes, big head, not small feet.)

Ok, I'm REALLY done now.  I have to stop faffing around and work on sometning!

James,

That looks like a really nice kit of the Jagdpanther.

Would you like me to photograph the contents of both Panther kits that I have and post them in the Amour section?

Ok. I am very impressed with the cast texture on the mantlet and mount plus the rolled steel armour texture!

I usually do it anyway as part of my build process.

Some stuff I pre-ordered from HLJ came in:

A couple of figures, 1/35th I want to use with armour and a 1/24th I want to pair with an old pick-up truck.

And now with the 'Egg GB' coming up I'm having second thoughts on my entry, I really want to start this one.

 

And this one. I have no idea what she's supposed to be, it was in the Gundam section but it was so cool I had to pick it up.

Gamera, check these out:

https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/search?typ1_c=102&cat=&state=&sold=0&sortid=0&searchkey=Megami+device

The Japanese seem to have some kind of fixation with weaponized girls!

I have to confess to buying one, just for giggles:

https://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10443958

She looks like any other Gunpla-type kit, just with makeup!

Those are really cool, a bit on the expensive side though. The kit I bought was less than twenty bucks. Of course it's nowhere as nice a kit. When get I around to building this one I'll have to give these Kotobukiya a look again.

Went to the Wings, Wheels, and Keels show in Venice, Florida yesterday.  Great show.  Some awesome builds for sure!

Picked up some Bandai kits my kids wanted....really, they did.  O.K., dad builds them, but they DID want them.  LOL!

Hi, my name is Bobby and I have a Bandai problem....LOL!  Couldn't help myself.  The guy from Cultvman hooked me up.  The Tu-22and Hetzer were from other vendors.  Everything else was from Cutltvman.

Thank you!  I have this thing for 1/72 bombers and after watching the review Aaron and Elizabeth did this week on the Horizon kit, I saw them (at Culttvman's table) and it was easy to talk me into one of them.  LOL!  They look really nice and it gives you the option for every capsule including some of the test ones.  I'm considering one of those!

That is an amazing lot of kits you got yourself Bobby. Hours of enjoyment packed in there for you and the kids.

See, this is why I only check this thread out every now and then. Now I need all of those Bandai kits, and since I've been on a bomber kick, I think I need that big Russian boy too. And the thought of lighting that EVA pod up fascinates me. I knew I should have stayed away from here. Smile

Thank you!  My son is a droid freak!  He literally knows them by name and can tell you in which movie they were in!!  I build them and he gets them in his room.  LOL!  He does help me with building them..that way he can say he did them too.  I got the Yoda for my daughter.  I think she wants to tackle that one by herself.  That's my girl!
