Several members have mentioned how much they like the exploded diagram of the Tomenosuke Blaster (or "BLÄSTER," as it is officially designated ). Not only is the diagram cool, but it's quite useful, as all of the Blaster parts are labeled.

It occurred to me that members might like to have an English-language key to that diagram. There are times when it would be easier to converse about the Blaster if we had a list of the names of all the parts.

Andy thought it sounded like a good idea, too, so I went ahead and whipped up a quick translation. Very Happy


The name of the person who drew this terrific CG diagram, Hiroyuki Kajitani, appears at the lower right corner of the Tomenosuke image. Mr. Kajitani, a pro modeler in addition to being a CG artist, is also known by the name "Rocket." You can find Rocket no zakkichou, or "Rocket's Notebook," here: http://rocket409.blog6.fc2.com/blog-entry-49.html. My thanks to Enomoto-san, chief of Tomenosuke Shoten, for the information about Rocket.

If anyone finds any errors in the English-language key, please bring them to my attention and I will correct them.

Thanks! Very Happy

I took the liberty of combining the diagram with the English key so you can finally tell what's going on.
