Thanks for this. I hadn't purchased a blockade runner yet and was starting to panic as places were either out or the kits had jumped significantly in price. USA Gundam had the BR and 1/350 Falcon two-pack for $14, so I snagged one. Relief.For what it's worth, BigBadToyStore just listed a bunch of the Bandai kits up for pre-order, I guess in anticipation of another production run. USA Gundam Store also has a decent stock (I needed another Tie Advanced and no one had it a few weeks ago)
Ah. I forgot to mention that I have an IR sensor in the garbage shoot to turn the lights on and off, that way I don't have to take the upper cake section off each time I want to turn them on.
Wrong thread? This is the Bandai RELEASE SCHEDULEOkay, so here's a conundrum I'm having with my 1/5000 SD. I want to drill a 1/4" hole in the back of it somewhere in order to mount it to the stand from behind. I initially thought about the engine section, but it's just way too busy back there. So I have the neck part that leads up to the bridge. My idea is that the hole would go here:

After drilling the hole, I'll put some 1/4" tube in there so that it's clean. I'm 3D printing a stand to receive the 1/4" tube as well.
Has anybody thought about other ways of mounting this sucker from behind? I'm open to any and all ideas before I go hacking and slashing.
My LHS is back open, so as a show of financial support, and retail therapy, I purchased the 1/48 Bandai X-wing, my 2nd copy, and the 1/350 K'T'inga, my 2nd copy, having actually built the first!Just realised I've panic bought 11 Bandai kits instead of toilet paper since quarantine. I built two Bandai kits and enjoyed it too much. Spent much time watching stock disappear and prices rise. I was even in Japan in March and struggled to find kits that I wanted. Guest I lost faith that things would return to normal and Bandai would do more runs.
Shall we ask Art to lock this thread? It certainly appears, that the Bandai era of Star Wars models has come to an end.Love reading about your builds and mods. But there's seperate topics for that or start a new thread please. No need to disrespect.
Heck no.Shall we ask Art to lock this thread? It certainly appears, that the Bandai era of Star Wars models has come to an end.
We can always ask him to unlock it, if a miracle happens and they start releasing new material again.
