how does i plastic.
I've been looking into different mechs recently. Armored core, Macross, Zoids, Code geass and what not, then i remembered getting an email from Hobbysearch about an Engage Sr3. I can't seem to find much information on any of the kits, besides release and preview images. I'm tempted to buy a few granted i find the ones i want in stock. as for construction, the kits from WAVE seem to be about Bandai's High grade level. There also seems to be a fair few resin kits from this manga.

Here's a few images.

Engage Sr3

LED mirage [something, there's a fair few LED Mirage suits]

(resin i think)

thoughts? once i can find a LED mirage sarion version in stock, i'll be buying it along with a Colus version.

all the resin kits i've found so far seem to be pretty pricey, older kits starting at 15,000 yen.

I love FSS. I'd like to buy a nice resin kit some day but I haven't gotten around to it. My favorite would have to be the Scarlet Phantom:

That is one beautiful model. I don't have the skills to do justice to that model at the moment, but its a great incentive to practice hard with the airbrush.

This is now my holy grail model.

I have never been able to find the one that is just standing up, i think that is the 1/35 scale versions that cost $500+.

I always find the nicer version(IMO) with the suit in the air.

Wow, that blurs the line between a model and a piece of modern art.

The one you've just order is exactly the same as my 10th anniversary ver on page 73. which is also mold in semi-clear plastic. The only difference is the price(1850yen) and boxart. If you could put hold to your order, try to get the 10th anniversary ver.

Since you're new to FSS. You should be aware that like a Star Wars kit etc, custom color scheme is 'disapproved' by fans/ majority. Of course it's yours you can do it. But still, there is a 'play by the book' culture, you can't really find a picture of a custom colored FSS(or Star Wars etc, most other Sci-fi stuffs) kit online. The cases like Gundam are really an exception where thing went awry long ago.

false info, ignore below

@TC I'll certainly keep you posted.
I'm hopng this one won't dissapear into my backlog though, hehe (I think mine is about as big as yours ;) )
LOL, my backlog is a bottomless pit for which models never return!! The first entry into it was the MG EX-S, which to my shame is still untouched after two years of gathering dust :$ .

I'm really looking forward to seeing more of the L.E.D Mirage. The Yen XIng is probably my holy grail (although a resin Nightingale is a close second), I just don't have the skills to do it justice. I think a good solid year of airbrush practice is needed before I can even dream of actually owing one.

EDIT: ingenhk, thanks you for that info on the 1/144 Yen Xing, I'd no idea it was being release by wave, I'm very interested in this.

BTW, WAVE is releasing Yen Xing in 1/144 scale in 2 months, not sure if it's a plastic kit or not
Thanks for the info.
Bit mystified as to how reach page 73 though, the link I gave was for the place I bought the kit (HLJ in this case).
And this was the cheapest they got (though that's not something to be proud off, hehe). If it's clear plastic as well, I'll take my chance with it (though no mention of this being the case was made)

I've visited a few FSS blogs before, and I've already noticed the FSS fandom is kinda 'scary' ;).
I really buy these kits for my own pleasure. For me it's way I see the design that counts, and I see no real difference in painting my Qubeley, or my L-Gaim, or any kit from FSS in a colour scheme I might like. Though I'm really fond of Nagano's designs so it won't be anything distasteful (fingers crossed)

A 1/144 scale Yen Xing would be fantastic. I'll certainly keep my eyes peeled for that one!

@TC Sales, yes I know XD

hmm a 1/144 ffs is about 175mm... Just between a hg and a mg. Sounds interesting. Maybe i will hold off on getting the resin. XD

Edit* Are you talking about this one?!

http://ngeekhiong.blogspot.com/2010/02/fss-1144-yen-xing-new-images.html

If so, i'll just buy the 1/100 resin i've been eyeing... 21,000 Yen is a bit out of my ideal price range.

@Squee You've just dislocated my jaw (twice when I saw the price)...
It seems to be described a triple set, though how that is to be intrepeted is anybodies guess.
If it's really three I would only need 2 more buyers... Anyone??

If that's the price for 3 that's roughly 85US for each one The resin kit for the 1/100 scale goes for about that price. I'd rather get that. Although the 3 types of shields is very nice. This is all debatable as that link was for 2010. And i know wave does occasionally make plastic kits of their resin figures. So confused.

@Squee I'd forgotten bout e2046 prices, but I'm guessing it's $85 for a recast, right?

I'm not quite sure about the FSS catalog, and why Wave did release injection kits, but only a few. But I'm thinking most of the 1/144 line is quite new, so this might be a brand new mold?
I'm too scared to go ask a real FSSer, for the fear of being hounded down for mentioning a FSS kit and the word custom j/k

If feel so uninformed without Ngeek's blog, bleh

*and I feel I hijacked this thread somewhat, my apologies to everyone

Nah i'm not getting it from E2046. There are other better casting companies out there that have it with shipping factored in that are cheaper than E.

Thanks Squee, its a pity it was released this way, it would have been a very wallet friendly way of getting this beautiful model.

The resin version is still my holy grail!!

Been searching a few hours now for a recast of the 1/144 Yen Xing, but to no avail :rawr: ...
Squee, you mentioned you know a lot better recasters than E. Do you know one that occasionally does FSS kits?

E2046 is pretty much the only site I know that sells resin recast (and only because it was mentioned here on GE), but customer feedback only seems average (to right out bad occasionaly) on their FSS kits. Not the best place to start for an utter noob at resin I suppose (and certainly not on a FSS kit)

I'm actually wondering if there is a resin of this guy:

The cross mirage on the right of course, the L-Gaim is good enough in it's HG form as is :P
