Showa Sketchbook Blue 2

I finally got around to scanning the sketchbook that I got months ago.
Its dimensions are exactly the same as the first blue one that I found in 2017.

The cover image on this second one might not be quite as exciting.
They both have a similar theme: X-Bomber flying towards the camera and the Dai-X behind it on the right.
The first one has quite a few cast members shown at the lower-left (including General Kyle, but oddly not Dr Benn).
In the second one, we have only Shiro, manning one of the turret guns.

I've uploaded a number of scan variants to the Showa Sketchbooks folder.

Unbox Blind-box Dai-X

I remember these being released quite a while ago: a few years after the big Dai-X that UNBOX did.
I have the one with the yellow mask but the colours on this one are a bit different all-round.
I was on-track to win this on FromJapan but the auction got deleted. Lame

YmiscY

It'd been a while since I'd seen anything Star Fleet-related from YmiscY but I found over nitter 4 images that have been re-done with much darker colouration than before and come out quite striking.

These have been added to the YmiscY folder, for safe keeping.
Incidentally, nitter was supposed to stop working in February when twitter removed 'guest accounts' from their service, that were used by old, unsupported versions of the android twitter app to display content in the app prior to user login.
This functionality allowed nitter to pull content from the service and serve it up anonymously.

I found one instance of nitter (as above) that still works, although it's not altogether clear how, but it's very handy for people to be able to view Star Fleet content on there, without them needing to have a login. 
I've been watching a lot of Babylon 5 lately. I suppose "faith manages".

Simanto50100 Moderoid Dai-X Build

Folder preview

I found this project of building and painting a Moderoid Dai-X model on nitter.
These photos illustrate the long series of steps involved.  They also show the flourescent yellow paint that was used for the eyes.
It gives it a green glow in the photographs.  I think I might even prefer that to the yellow.  Perhaps they upgrade the sensors/lasers in the eyes after the events of the show.

Piroaki7 - Lamia

Nice new image that I found on twitter of Lamia, the way the face is drawn captures the character well - would be great to see a colourised version.

Cute Star Fleet Bento Box

Folder preview

I'd not seen this item before until now.
It's a small snack box/tin produced (I think) by Showa.

Bumper Update

I was sent a huge number of great images from Dan at SFFB over the past few weeks...
I understand that Gary Cass has started producing X-Bomber 3D prints that are colour-3D-printed:
	Gary Cass - More Projects
At the same time, I have some great images of cpltony16's PPA model.
I also received some detailed and interesting images of Andrea Mazzuzi's and CJ Jones' Dai-X model builds.

Matsukami too is working on a 3D X-Bomber model.  Take a look on the forum for more.

I spotted that a number of further Star Fleet-related paintings had been done by eBay user greggsinnit.
The Shiro one is really good, but the Dai-X is still the best to my mind.

Lastly, I noticed last month that there was an odd behaviour with the site, where the server seemed to be interrupting the SLIR image processing, and gallery pages with 100+ images were only loading about half of them.
This behaviour now seems to be fixed.

X-Bomber Encyclopaedia

I located a copy of the X Bomber Encyclopaedia, for sale on From Japan.
The cover is substantially faded but the contents look to be in good condition:

Be aware that we have a downloadable copy on the site, kindly provided, some time ago, by a forum regular:

Dai-X Painting

I really like this painting but I already have a nice illustration of Dai-X in my office:
