[Aquamarine ND-001 Nadesico With Y-Unit] 1:1500 Original Release
« on: September 30, 2017, 09:59:57 pm »
Hi, Everyone!

Back in the late 1990s, there was a science-fiction comedy / parody anime called Martian Successor Nadesico.  The series spanned 26 television episodes and one movie, and it followed the crew of the space battleship ND-001 Nadesico during 2196 when Earth is at war with a race of aliens.

Back in April 2017, Japanese figure manufacturer Aquamarine released two 1:1500 20 cm (7.87402 inches) models of the Nadesico - a regular version (kit number 4562369650587) and a clear version (kit number 4562369650754).

Now set for December 2017, Aquamarine will be releasing a 1:1500 28 cm (11.0236 inches) version of the Nadesico with Y-Unit (kit number 4562369650761).  In the series, the Y-Unit ("Yamato-Unit") was a modular attachment which fitted onto the ship's forward hull and cosmetically increased the ship's physical dimensions.  In addition, it functionally increased the ship's engine power and provided a new weapon - the phase transition cannon - which folds space around the target location and completely obliterates anything within the area of the reaction.

Also included with the kit will be six small robot figures - three Aestivalis Ground Battle Frames and three Aestivalis Aerial Battle Frames.

Hobby Link Japan (https://hlj.com/product/aqa65076) and Hobby Search (http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10493706) are now taking pre-orders for the kit.

Check out the pictures below.

The Nadesico is a nice looking ship!

Yes, this is a cool-looking kit. I saw this in person at the hobby show last weekend. I'd never heard of Aquamarine until this kit. I think they started out doing anime figures and are now doing some plastic model kits.
