The policy of the museum is not to allow photography. If you look at the posts on http://www2.ezbbs.net/36/starwars_model/ (you'll have to use a translation service like http://babelfish.altavista.com/ if you don't speak Japanese), you'll see that people are managing to get photographs, but they're having to hide their cameras in their coats and so on. At the moment, the only X-wing model on display is the large one. I'm not sure about the Falcons or the Y-wing.

There are two x-wing displays, to my recollection--I remember a small one, and there was certainly a big one--though I could be confusing the small one with another model in my memory. I was there last weekend. The big Falcon and one smaller Falcon are there.

Miniaturizer Ray is correct in that Kyoto National Museum does not allow pictures. I sneaked a photo or two for a board member when I went, and I may be able to do so if I go again, which I may in the coming week. No guarantees, of course.

The big Falcon is a real challenge to photo since it's the big display (after the Star Destroyer) right at the entrance, swarming with staff members. I consider it a challenge.


I sent an email to the email address posted, but it was returned undeliverable.

gokarosama, what can you remember of the smaller X-wing?

I have a good friend in Japan who is building a studio scale X-wing and he was looking forward to seeing the Red 2 miniature at the exhibition. It's impossible that he would have missed it, but perhaps it has been added since his visit?

Ray,
I remember precious little, to be honest. It wasn't one of the exhibits I spent a lot of time looking at. There was a little human figure and an R2 unit (a blue one, like Deetoo)I remember that. Sorry. As I said, I may go back, and if I do, I'll look closer...
