Hmmmm...I have always been a fan of the AC series. Yet whenever I see the products those companies produce, it just turn me off.  <_<

...eventhough they are a hundred times more accurate to the actual designs than for example Gundams?

Interesting.

And regarding the Nineball: Fuck yeah!  :o

Woo! Finally!

Glad to see this kit series is still going strong.

The Atlas kit looks amazing too.

While I only wanted to stick with AC4 kits, I have to get the 9Ball kit.  So hard not to love that design.

Is it Nineball, or Ninebreaker?

While the aforementioned kit has been on my 'wish list' almost since the AC kit line started, I actually find myself more excited about the Atlas kit. It's the biggest, scariest, toughest looking AC kit so far... or at least it looks that way to me. It even makes the Selena look wimpy. Look at the size of that gun!

"Nineball" is the AC.  "Ninebreaker" is the title bestowed upon the pilot who manages to beat Nineball (and, later, anyone who becomes the top-ranked AC pilot...)

Pretty cool that there's an actuall Nine Ball kit in the pipeline - so much simpler that way.  :)

Got my Dualface in the mail yesterday, however I didn't take a look at the kit untill today.

So, I grabbed my hobbyknife and calipers and though I was in for a smooth snapping trip like with your average MG kits.

I was positively surprised to see that the kit had so many parts that it would be impossible to finish in a couple of hours (like your average MG) and that it required alot of sub-assembly. I was also glad to see that you couldn't carelessly snap it together and take it apart (like a MG).

Needless to say, it was a whole lot more work than I expected. Definately a skill 3 or 4 kit. Needs alot of careful planning ahead in order to get the proper end result.

I'll deal with this one once I finish my Freedom IWSP and Hi-Nu I think, because as it is now, there's way too much on my table.  :)

(calipers??)

Yeah, the AC kits are a bit partsy...  The upshot is that all kinds of little details get a good amount of attention.  Very little stuff gets lost to draft angle issues...

Uh... sorry, my mental english dictionary malfunctioned. Cutters is what I meant.

But yeah, sure were partsy as hell. Then again, I like the way the parts were broken up. First you have the "base" for the part, then you cover it with panels (that require no seam-work) which you in turn cover with detail parts.

HLJ has the C-04 Atlas 'Fox Eye' version up for preorder now. Release date in November.

http://www.hlj.com/product/KBYVI-23

The Uranus is due in September, and the Tellus is due in October.

I suppose we'll probably see the Nineball in December then?
