Mighty fine Blade-wing fighter you got there, Starsiegeplayer-I had to look that up to find out why it's called a B-wing. ;D  Nice job on a less than common subject.

Nice 'B' ya have there. I almost picked this up several times now. After seeing yours, I may have to change that.

I am waiting for Bandai to get around to releasing one of these kits in 1:72 scale. :) Until then I will have to do with this toy model in 1:144 scale off eBay.

This makes me wondering, what kit is this and what scale?

I would love if Bandai made a B-Wing model.  This is the AMT kit.  They never reported the scale of the kit but it I did some math (http://scifimodelaction.com/sfmaforum/index.php?topic=5801.msg75517#msg75517) and came up with roughly 1/100.

It's the Imperial Japanese Navy B-Wing! Very nice. This kit's price has gone up a bit on eBay, but the last I checked it can still be found for a fair price on Yahoo Auctions Japan. I picked one up for a friend of mine about a year ago for about 2,000 yen (about $20US).

I am waiting for Bandai to get around to releasing one of these kits in 1:72 scale. :)
I always prod Bandai reps to make this happen every time I talk to them at the trade shows. The last time I had such a conversation was at the All-Japan hobby show in Tokyo in September, and the rep I spoke with seemed to have put a bit of thought into the possibility. I'm not the only one requesting this. I imagine they could sell more models by sticking to the OT more than anything else. It would be nice to see a 1:72 B-Wing and TIE Bomber by Bandai sometime soon.
