There is a much bigger model of this ship (1/350) and it has sound and motion, but also a $400-500 price tag. Sheeeesh.
This plastic model is really well done by Bandai. The instructions are totally in Japanese, but I found a site that had them all scanned in and translated to english. Woooot! The turrets all rotate and the pieces are really beautifully done. They are molded in colors, but it will get a paint job, that's for sure. I'm also pretty sure I will be getting another light kit from PoweredPlay Gaming to light this bad boy up.
Also, I picked up this pretty cool mini holder from PK-PRO in Germany. It's quite cool, but this is a lousy picture. It is a nice, ceramic base with a split cork in the center. The metal rod wraps around and gives you a VERY comfortable place to rest your fingers, not on the mini, marring up the paint job. The split cork is very nice, because you can put the pin (if you pin your figs to the bases) into the split and it holds it very securely. You can also just glob on the hobby-tac as well.
Not a great image, but I will be putting up more about it.
