I just got a couple orders today from HLJ and R10. Got some great stuff too that I'm looking forward to building.

Round Buckler (The Mars Daybreak): Great mech design and I got it because it reminds me of the vermillion from Rahxephon.

MaK Heinrich
MaK Nutrocker
MaK Gans
MaK Raptor

Tamiya 1/35 JGSDF Light Armor Vehicle (if anyone has real-life ref shots of this (it's currently deployed in Iraq) let me know)
Tamiya 1/35 JGSDF Iraq Humanitarian Assistance Team (Goes with the LAV)

Wave Small and Large eyes: Great stuff for lenses... mostly round, but a few gundam eyeball shaped ones too.

And my first set of B-club manipulators. I got one of the Gundam/GM sets.

I also have a MaK Jerry, SAFS (another), and a Gustav on the way.

So I have a lot of kits ahead of me to build.I already have plans for most of these. Should be fun!

Foo, that's quite a shopping list! And to keep with the whole food theme:

What's a good "pantry" of spare parts and accesories, I mean aside from minus molds and d-rings?

I remember seeing pictures of a real one from pictures of Tamiya convention (one in states, or is it the one in Japan?)  I remember seeing it...probably the Japan one...

Man, you're hooked on those MaK stuff, I gotta get me some!!

This is a sweet kit! there was a pretty good build up review of this in a recent tamiya model mag, i'll see if i can dig it out and whizz you some scans. Looking forward to seeing wha tyou do with it. BTW I scored some really good resin parts of urban refuse (as used in the tamiya article, old pc , fridge dumpster) from a store in France, can't remember the name. I will try to remember to look it up when I get back home, I know you would like these!!

As for the round buckler, I was pretty disapointed with the kit, but the hornisse is another matter ;)

Hobby Japan had a how-to with this model in their December 2004 issue.  After showing how the model was made, pictures were included of a real one.  I'll make some scans and post them as soon as I can.

Find the scans here:

Cheers,
