    Blast from the past, and present: RXF-91 Kai!

    When they said “Everything old is new again”, they weren’t kidding! I just recently went to my local Hobby Toy Central and was shocked to find old Silhouette Formula F-91 kits on the shelves! The last time I saw that was literally 18 year ago! In fact, I figured that these kits had all disappeared and would never be seen or heard from again.

    To that end, 15 years ago, I took the opportunity to grab one that a student of mine found in Asia when he was home for the summer. I would have placed bets that it was the last of its kind that would be found on this continent when he brought it to me. Well, I guess that was wrong…

    Still, the timing couldn’t be better, since I can show off my old-new-oldly new new kit (you followed that, right?) and be right on the bandwagon! So, check out my RXF-91 Kai Silhouette Gundam at the link below, and let the retro robot assault begin!

    Loving that shields energy parts! Always nice to see an older kit given proper love!

    Thanks, Squee!

    I'm like you; I like to see an older kit get built up with modern methods and stand beside it's more well-known, and sometimes more glamourous younger brothers. I like it when people can't tell it's an old kit; that always makes me feel good!

    I am very much looking forward to redoing my Cluster, which I originally built about 20 years ago, and which needs work. I just picked up a new Cluster on the weekend, so hopefully sometime sooner than later I'll be able to have one that looks like it's of the same era as the RXF-Kai above!
