Schpeltor K.O.G. 1/100 IMS kit from Volks

The Schpeltor (entry in Gearsonline) is the 5th in the Volks 1/100 IMS line, and was my third IMS kit after the Vatshu the Black Knight and Bang Doll. It has a very elegant design unlike the more armored LED Mirage, and I especially like the design of the shoulder armor.  The IMS kit is…

Jagd Mirage: Both 2992 : 1/100 HSGK Volks resin kit

The Jagd Mirage was a monster in every sense of the word. You can read the details of the Jagd at Gearsonline, but at a towering 43.9 meters it is 3x the regular Mortar Headds. You can tell from the size comparison with the Schpletor. I had very mixed feelings about the MH. When the Twin…

Wave 1/100 FSS Led Mirage Prince Sarion with Flame Launcher

Now that I have a somewhat different approach to modeling and photography, I’ve been looking to redo/reshoot some of my old kit that is still around. This Wave 1/100 kit was at one point my pride and joy… mostly because it was such a hassle to build because of poor fit and my lack of…

Led Mirage with Flame Launcher (Prince Sarion version) 1/100 Wave

Introduction Scale 1/100 Maker Wave Completed 3/25/00 Retail 4200yen I’ve read some Five Star Stories, but not enough to claim myself an expert. Led Mirage is supposed to be the strongest mirage in Five Star Stories (or so its name claims), and is capable of great destruction with the flame launcher. Prince Sarion’s version has…
