Re: Japanese Version 16mm Reels

I'll have to wait until I get back from holiday to start with the project and the first step of that will be to find an LD player on eBay or somewhere. You seem to be able to get a decent Pioneer for about £100 on eBay.,I just need to make sure that it's NTSC-compatible. I'll see what they look like...

Re: A couple of random finds

Here's something good for you.
They spotted this at some "Wonder Festival" in Japan this year.
The guy made it out of paper.

Re: A couple of random finds

Hi Matsukami, You're dead right, thank you for reminding me. I think I need to break the models page up into individual owners/makers in the same way as the Artwork is divided up because there are lot more physical models visible online now than when we used the old X-Archive. Back then, there were ...

Re: Japanese Version 16mm Reels

This is a fabulous thread. I'd be very interested in capturing any images of the materials related to the show and putting them on the site. I think that you probably find that children are enthusiastic about about what their parents are enthusiastic about in many cases. I think that anyone with an ...

Re: Japanese Version 16mm Reels

I'm happy that Star Fleet still captures young peoples' interest and competes with current childrens' programming nearly 40 years on. I think that Star Fleet, complete with English audio is even better because it has a more engaging soundtrack. How is it possible to play those films? Are they being ...

Re: Japanese Version 16mm Reels

Welcome! The splicing of the audio and video between language adaptations of the show is tricky, partly because the credits are different lengths in each localisation. If you were to mux them together, you would find it tricky to sync the audio with the picture. Another thing is that the differences...

Re: A couple of random finds

That's an amazing find. It could use some post-process polishing in Lightroom though.

Downloadhelper was happy to pull the 1080p version, which we now have for download here:

Re: Stuff on Rinkya

I think the ship has a brownish colour for real: http://xbomber.co.uk/Star%20Fleet/DVD%20Screenshots/France%20-%20Vol%201/bx-v1-04-17.jpg They light it up a bluish colour in the space scenes: http://xbomber.co.uk/Star%20Fleet/DVD%20Screenshots/France%20-%20Vol%201/bx-v1-07-19.jpg To me, it looks bet...

Re: Stuff on Rinkya

One thing I got on Rinkya last year (or maybe even earlier) was this cool sketchbook which was too big for my scanner to capture in one pass so I found and tried out the really impressive Photomerge feature in Photoshop. Anyway, here it is: http://www.xbomber.co.uk/Star%20Fleet/Scans/Sketch%20Book.j...

Re: A couple of random finds

I upped those nice big photos of the X-Bomber and Battlecruiser models to the Fan Works > Models folder. I made that folder quite recently and I kinda forgot that I'd seen those quite a while ago. The page with the Dai-X cutaway is good. I tried to find out where the images had come from using googl...
