    Went out to lfgs today at lunch.  Nothing new for Star Wars Legion in (but I gave them a list of what I'm looking for ...and HOPE it doesn't all come in at once....:blink:).

    But they had some new tufts from AP, and I grabbed a Gundam 2 pack that looked interesting and very not-English......

    Then I got home and found a nice box of goodies waiting in the mailbox.

    A nice box of tactical assault roosters....TAG's Yeomen of the Yard KS. Halfling knights on armoured roosters....

     

     

    I assume the Gundam and Zaku are 1/144th scale? I couldn't see a scale in the picture.

  2. My Mobile Suits are here. I need to be more careful of scale in the future, though. :blink::wow:

    The 1/400 models look right next to each other.

    The 2 that didn't list scale are way too big compared to the 1/400.

     

    1/400 models (6 total):

    AGX-04 Gerbera Tetra is 18.0 meters to top of head. It's approx. 39mm tall to top of head.

    RMS-108 Marasai is overall 20.5 meters and 17.5 meters to top of head. It's approx. 48mm overall & 39mm to top of head.

     

    No scale Listed, but pictured next to a ruler [both approx. 3" tall]:

    ORX-005 Gaplant Mobile Armor is overall 25.2 meters and 19.8 meters to top of head. It's approx. 85mm overall [but has a wide stance - it's toes would need a base 75mm across] & 69mm to top of head. That's 1/296 if I figured it right.

    RX-178 Gundam MkII is 18.5 meters to top of head. It's approx. 73mm tall to top of head. That's 1/253 scale if I figured it right.

    I might proxy the Gundam Mk II as a Psycho Gundam. Both versions are approx. 40m to top of head, so that would be 1/548 scale.

    Yeah, that's about the same size as mine, they're pretty much all in the 2.5"-3" range aside from a few in odd poses. If you want more in that scale, searching eBay for "M.S.Selection" will get plenty of hits, that's how I got most of mine.

    As long as they're all roughly in scale to each other I'm good. I bought them to game with after all.  ::D::rolleyes:

    What scale?

     

    *eyes the 1/280 Kampfer he just finished blacklining*

    The Gundam MkII and Gaplant don't list scales, but each has a picture in front of a ruler. They are each about 3" tall.

    All the others say they are 1/400.

  5. If we're talking East-West then I circumnavigated the globe twice between 1988 and 1994.

    They just weren't one continuous trip.

    Flew from Ohio to Japan, ship tools around the Pacific for 2 years, flew from the Gulf to England, then across the Atlantic back to Ohio.

    Flew from Ohio to the Gulf (over the Atlantic) to meet my next ship, tooled around the Pacific for 2 more years, then flew from Japan to Ohio.
