グラジエーター

gladi5.jpg

横山宏さんのデザインした四足歩行戦車をガレージキットメーカーであるボムフォル&チオネル社が販売していたものです。

購入制作したのは今から3年以上前ですので現在は残念ながら入手出来ないと思います。
模型をお作りにならない方にはガレージキットと云う言葉も初耳なのではないでしょうか。簡単に説明すると、バンダイやタミヤと云った大手メーカーが製造していない造形物を、個人の手によって作成販売している商品と云ったものです。音楽業界に例えるとインディーズレーベルですね。

プラモデルは一つの商品の型を作るまでに数千万から億の資金がかかるそうなのですが、ガレージキットは全ての作業を基本的には個人で行なう為に多くの元手を必要としません。シリコンの型を作りレジンと云う素材(歯医者さんでよく使われています)で複製して販売するのです。
しかしコストパフォーマンスが低いので通常プラモデルの10倍近い値段となってしまいます。写真のグラジエーターは¥16800でした。イベントなどの数日間にしか購入出来ない事もあり、買い逃したら二度と出会えない貴重品でもあります。

そうして運良く購入出来たとしても、制作する為には多大な労力とかなりのスキルが要求されます。ガンプラのように親切な説明書もなければ、商品はただバラバラの状態で袋詰めされている事が殆どです。どこの部品なのか分からなかったり、大事な部品が梱包されてなかったりする場合も少なくありません。

わざわざ高いお金で苦労を買うようなものだと思われるかも知れませんが、趣味の興が盛り上がって来るとどうしても欲求が募ってしまうもので、このような商品を購入したくなってしまうんですよね。

特にこのグラジエーターは「SF3D」ファンのトラウマとも云える商品なのです。20年前の当時発売のアナウンスがされていながら、発売元である日東が潰れてしまった為にお蔵入りとなってしまったのが原因です。
私は地方在住である為にイベントへは行けませんでしたから、ガレージキットを扱う都内の模型屋さんを虱潰しに調べた結果で以てこの商品を購入しました。

買うのは勿論作る事にも甚大な労力を使わされた訳ですが、漸く20年前の傷が癒されたような感じに安堵感を憶えた次第です。
しかし「SF3D」にはまだ癒されていないトラウマが多く残っているので、これからも時間を掛けて自らの心を補完して行きたいと思っています。

模型の事を見てくれる方もいらっしゃるのだなと思い調子に乗って載せて見ました。
グラジは本当に苦労しました。機関部やインテークなど殆ど自作しなければならなかったのは勿論、ある筈の部品が何点か入っていなかったり…。代わりに何故かガンスの部品が入ってましたが。

リンクの件ありがとうございました。
私もタミヤの光硬化パテには大変興味を持っております。

Leland Tang, the Public Information Officer told the website that when Odom was pulled over he was given a field sobriety test, which he failed. In - Style called the look "equal parts girlie and punk, like the pop star herself. Many people are interested in knowing these and thus, if one is looking to start a fashion website, all they have to do is to include this aspect to their portal along with pictures as well.

One of the leading results of extended hours of being underneath the intense burning heat of the sun is the growth and development of Cancer. One should remember that perspiration will cause uneven tanning. Moving to some sunny place can be an effective means to get an all round glow.

They are considering a ban on these compounds due to concerns that the paralysis could become permanent. Outside cleaners have to do a good job, or they don't get invited back. Just like having dolphin velour beach towel which is eye-catching to one and all due to the uniqueness it brings.

Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

In 1914, World War I broke out; and in 1916, within months of each other, Enzo's father and brother both died - his father from pneumonia, his brother from an illness contracted during military service. The services like money for cars and money for junk cars are terribly widespread nowadays. Purchasing a car is an investment that takes a little more than noticing the paint color, make, and model.

Just the other day, I went home for lunch to take my dog out for a little walk, and I met a very nice man who was driving around checking out the area where I live. Apart from sunbathing on the glorious sandy beach, this little village offers the tourist much more.

It's actually very complex in this active life to listen news on TV, so I simply use the web for that purpose, and get the most recdent news.

Citizens delight in near proximity to the Sonoran desert, the White Mountains, over two hundred golf courses, the fifth biggest urban center in the United States, and a lot more. The second place it should fit is into the firewood shed in a way so that it can be easily stacked. Tongue and groove makes a stronger shed, which is harder to break into.

Each of them has a different function according to the intensity of the misspelled keywords. When Page - Rank was patented the patent was assigned to Stanford University. Forgetting to write for an audience is one of the biggest mistakes that bloggers make. In this way, it is informed about the kind of information that a surfer is looking for.

'Are people really searching online for my product or services'. The Internet has changed the way we attain information forever and Google has been the main driving force and proponent behind this instant access to information. Unlike TV, radio and other traditional marketing channels that need big budgets to be effective, SEO can be cost effective. A guy named Alan Emtage, a student at the University of Mc - Gill, developed the first search engine for the Internet in 1990.

Another major difference between the two is that while PPC is a paid form of advertising, organic search engine optimization is absolutely free. The usual SEO methods include keyword research, link building and such. Unlike TV, radio and other traditional marketing channels that need big budgets to be effective, SEO can be cost effective. This mode of advertisement was faster than the earlier ones and reached more people but it had its own limitations.

'Are people really searching online for my product or services'. The usual SEO methods include keyword research, link building and such. But it is extremely important that anyone looking to hire an SEO professional be aware of the differences. Further the sites whose ranking using the search engines is good will attract potential clients, which results to mores sales.
