O'Neill cylinder model

Post by degwin_zabi » Wed Jun 24, 2015 4:19 pm

Does anyone where I can find this model? http://gundam.wikia.com/wiki/File:15486 ... 7e47e9.jpg My arguments with the more grittier aspects of Gundam aside, I can't help but be fascinated the science fictional lore behind it all. This model is actually pretty good looking.

Actually, I now see at Mecha Catalogue. What I want to know is how I can possibly get maybe two of them. One for me and another for my knowledge-loving step-nephew.

Might have to wait until it's at a cheaper, American price.

It's supposed to be worth 3,600 yen now, which, according to the internet, is $30 in the States, so I might be able to afford it now, if I can only find a website to order from.

It is also on HLJ: http://www.hlj.com/product/WAVKM-11
Sadly it is currently discontinued, which usually indeed drives the price of available ones up.
But they are such a big player, if they get enough requests for it, they occasionally enforce reprints.

Very great find though, I had no idea such model existed.
I am a big fan of the O'Neill Cylinder as well, so yea.

I've talked with my Mom, so we made it my first online purchase. We started with just one to see if assembling it isn't hard.

I got it a month ago, but we haven't started working on it, yet.
