Hi all,

was running this through my head this weekend and i was wondering if anyone would be interested in a bandai sci-fi campaign. i know they have produced quite a lot of star wars kits lately but it would be a general sci-fi build providing the kit had been produced by Bandai.

I was thinking of calling it the "Bandai Boys" Campaign and i would aim to have it start in the first quarter of next year.

if anyone is interested add your name below.

Take care,

Bandai Star Wars kits are really so give one a try, I'm sure that they will surprise you

Hi all,
Returning to the fold after a long hiatus. I've recently acquired a Bandai ANH X-Wing and would be interested in this one.

I kind of lost my enthusiasm for Star Wars years ago, but I have been looking at the Bandai kits as I do think of the Falcon as an iconic starship design and have been thinking about getting a good one.

If this lasts at least until year's end, I am game (I am currently involved in ten other campaigns this year, so I need time).

Doing OK Mike, just lots of travel for work keeping me from building too often. Skills have suffered severely.

Probably going to need a long time to build the X-Wing.

How about you? Things good up in VT?

Oh, this so has to happen. Bandai just released news of a 1/72 B-Wing. Haven't seen the date yet though.

Been waiting on one of those for a LONG time...
I still want that vapor-plastic DML 1/35th AT-AT though...
I was at an AMPS meeting in a hobby shop in N Vt and looked at the price tag of the Bandai 1/144 one today, $48, and just could not pull the trigger.

Put me down for this as I still have a few unbuilt in the stash.

Either a Shoretrooper or a conversion of Boba Fett

Hmm, I have a 1/48 scale X wing fighter (episode 4-5-6 vintage) don't know who's tool as it's in a bag somewhere in the stash. Does it have to be Bandai?

Ideally yes as it's going to be similar to the dragon and trumpeter builds that are going on in the armour section.

Finally found my X-Wing. It's an MPC, so it doesn't qualify. Maybe another time.

I got a gift card to a HobbyTown near me and when it turned out they were out of stock on the kit I did want (Revell 1/32 P-51D early tail) I ended up coming home with an OT X-Wing and a FO TIE fighter. Got a Y-Wing on the cheap at a Hobby Lobby and ordered an OT TIE online. Going to build the FO TIE oob just to get a feel for these new Bandai kits (last I built were the Pin Point 1/48 armor back during yesteryear) as I want to weather the OT ships and paint the markings rather than use decals.

In other words, count me in.

we are doing well but we still need a few more people to enlist. MLD and brekinapez you guys still need to enlist on the campaigns page, the Bandai build is at the bottom of the page.

once we have ten people or more enlisted then i can activate it.
