    I am a full-on Otaku: obssessive for Japanese general culture, especially Anime, videogames and eventually Japanese coaches and trains, mainly the Shinkansen.
    I definitely disconnected from the rest of the world in what concerns buses and coaches, including in my place, where I now look to a coach that used to be spectacular in a different way; basically I now look at them like 'ordinary' coaches, with not much interest.
    This is due to a phase I am passig right now, a change of pace I decided to adopt (in order to move forward and change for better, sometimes we must leave many things we used to like behind).
    Other interests beyond this are scale modeling and - sometimes - going to disco and playing football.
    Three of my everlasting dreams is to go live in Japan like a real full-on otaku, buy my favorite car and "moe-fy" it into a good itasha and even more difficult, the people to stop being apathetic to all the world's curses and do something to reverse it!!
    My biggest source of inspiration for my whole life - including my work, my hobby and my family and friends relationships - is my favorite character, Kashiwazaki Sena from the 「I Don't Have Many Friends/僕は友達が少ない」 Anime.

  1. Precisely. By the end of WWII, the Japanese political system passed from a totalitarian imperial rule to what is still today a unitary parliamentary constitutional monarchy, so there is still an imperial family (led by Emperor Naruhito), but their power is limited to a ceremonial role, or 'country's image projection' role if you wish. The power to entirely control the country falls to the prime Minister, today Mr Kishida Fumio, of the Liberal Democratic Party, just like his predecessor, Mr Abe Shinzo. Will not go any further into politics than this, since it is forbidden to do so outside the respective topic. I will be starting unfolding process of battleship「Yamato」in a matter of half an hour.
  2. Here is the current, fully comprehensive list of to-do's. IJN SHIMAKAZE* - On the way - SUSPENDED USS SOUTH DAKOTA* - CANCELLED USS ALLEN M. SUMNER* - CANCELLED VIKING OCTANTIS/POLARIS** - POSTPONED OCEAN EXPLORER** - POSTPONED IJN SENDAI* - POSTPONED IJN TONE* - POSTPONED IJN MOGAMI (FLOATPLANE CARRIER)* - POSTPONED NEW SUZURAN/KRITI I*** - POSTPONED NEW YUKARI/KRITI II*** - POSTPONED NCL DREAM/DREAMWARD** - POSTPONED NCL WIND/WINDWARD** - POSTPONED IJN YAMATO* - On 3D stage (phase II, unfolding) IJN SUZUTSUKI* - Building underway IJN ASASHIMO* IJN HAMAKAZE* IJN ISOKAZE* IJN HATSUSHIMO* IJN YUKIKAZE* IJN KASUMI* * WARSHIP ** CRUISE SHIP *** FERRYBOAT Maybe these new additions (the last eight) are familiar to you - if you know well about WWII naval warfare, and particularly the Pacific theater - they are part of the legendary Ten-Go mission (also known as Ten-ichi-go or Operation Kikusui); two of these ships - IJN Fuyuzuki and IJN Yahagi - have now been completed, but will not receive any flags until all other eight ships are present, as a sign of personal tradition of adding any flags only when achieving full completion, either of a particular ship or a notable fleet. I will keep you updated soon as new progress is made, particularly IJN Yamato. For anything else, you can suggest new ship models I might add to the online store I will be opening when I return to my home country; please note that knowing there are some people here who may be from blacklisted countries/regions, I will not serve them, therefore I may take their suggestions but I will not be able to sell to them, after - and if - such models have been produced. Here is the full list of blacklisted countries. I appreciate your understanding in advance; if I had to restrict these countries, that's because of repetitive violations of my Terms and Conditions, carried out by one or more individuals.
  3. Been very long time, but then, here is a work-in-progress I am currently working on, the Japanese Super Type A program's Azuma class super large cruiser, Mitsumine. Zao class cruisers were also part of the Super Type A program; I designed those earlier this year, but it still needs modifications.
  4. I do produce papercraft models of those, but I don't follow much on their movements, as I don't even live in North America. ^^;
  5. This astonishing Beulas Mythos HDH - to my opinion the most beautiful coach anywhere in Switzerland - was once for sale; it's not listed on the https://beulas-suisse.ch used vehicle page anymore, so I will try to identify who purchased it, if it ever was purchased by some other company here in Switzerland.

  6. Worked perfectly. Since I am running on Quad-core on my Huawei Y6P and no app/browser has crashed since I got this phone, I will treat this solution as permanent. Thanks Ashton! ^^
  7. Being mostly on my phone and sometimes needing to adjust my signature (where my rules for using my papercraft can be seen) as I still have the idea in mind, I no longer have the option of moving to the desktop site versus the old version of the site. Is it possible to re-enable this option, so that we can make full use of the site on the go? Thanks in advance.
  8. your, ah, WEBS isn't up to date, because I looked and it says page doesn't exist.

      Long ago I terminated it. 

      Will replace it with the current one I developed on another sitehost. 

  9. I know I'm bringing something that's from one and 1/2 years, but then maybe should help. About the said 'foamers', it's true that it's an annoying experience with them and so on, particularly if they just spend their time shadowing you wherever you post. The best way around is, you CAN JUST IGNORE THEM, by throwing the command 'ignore' on them, including blocking them from PMing you with their poisoning messages. Others will eventually see what those blockheads say, but then remember that once you give importance to what they say, you just fell right down to their ground scraping level, and obviously you don't want to. Remember, "arguing with someone who renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead." This just to say one shouldn't quit this forum just because of some bonehead trying to turn his life to hell; just put up a 'fence' the admins have provided you with, and voila... They even grow tired and give it up; if all of us just simply stop arguing with whoever prefers the 'hardcore fanboy act', then they will much likely get lost, maybe even flocking to this thread to have their accounts removed. Any admin, I'm very sorry if I stepped on your toes, I'd accept the consequences if necessary, but I just had to, in a bid to help anyone.
  10. That reminds me, the Trans-Pacific Partnership was meant as a way to reinforce copyright laws on the member countries, but personally I never believed that would have any significant impact. Another reminder to me, I think I still have my account, though the bottom line is that one can see my face, and the photos are almost all in the same few locations. Perhaps what could be stolen from there are those of a coach that's no more for quite some years now, the Neoplan N516 SHD Starliner, and there are practically nothing regarding these four units in their former selves. One of them with Durmo Tours: Durmo Tours ex. Buchard Voyages
  11. In the end this thread is completely useless and should either be deleted itself or locked... If one would like to leave and the only way to do it is through Admin action, guess the best is PMing an Admin. You should know better. xD

    In a nutshell, cars I own are a 4-inline 2011 BMW X1 and V6 2005 Mazda Tribute. Other cars I tested/drove during driving school, in chronological order: Honda Civic Type R FN2 (school) Toyota Vitz TRD Sport (school) Civic Type R FK2 (school) Civic Type R FK8 Ford Focus Carving Suzuki Swift (Sec Gen) Ferrari Portofino Toyota C-HR AT BMW Z4 M40i I have plans to try other cars, notably BMW M2 Competition, Alfa Romeo Giulia QV and Stelvio QV, Nissan R35 GT-R and Lamborghini Huracan Performante and Urus. I was very close to try Ferrari's 812 Superfast, but then the agent told me it's a very demanded car and is kept only for those wishing to buy it, for the customers to define their tailor built cars.
  13. Almighty monster performance Huracan Super Trofeo which is about to reemerge as the "Sena Kashiwazaki" Huracan Mega Trofeo, with a twin turbocharged, 1250hp V10 delivering raw power to the rears, neck-breaking power managed by only four technological performance marvels, three of them don't even exist IRL and would forever change the Elite performance car industry! One is the familiar ESP, while the others are the VAYCS (Variable Active Yaw Control System), Fusion Transmission (all-in-one transmission, if you'd like) and an inboard intelligent system simply called "Instinct" (detects road and weather conditions, and analyzes the driver's behavior in real time, and adjusts the suspension, rev limiter, fuel injection rates, etc based on those circumstances for maximum control and performance). Theoretically, a car this powerful and advanced could kill the 0-62 in just below two seconds, into a max speed in excess of 250mph; constant adjustments carried out by the "Instinct" could beat the Nurburgring Nordschleife in about five minutes, perhaps less. Rear quarter. Full broadside.
  14. Make way for Nikko's most acclaimed 1/10 Street Cars Series. the Lamborghini HURACAN Super Trofeo!! ^^ Strongest point: it's actually faster than the announced 10-12kmph, and is very light for the size. Lowest points: has no working lights whatsoever, and some parts look a bit fragile. Price tag: $114.76 in today's currency (converted from CHF114.-). Right now, I am customizing it to become an Itasha like the「EMT」Super Aventador. I may also try to find out how to install working lights, even including directional/warning lights. and a RGB LED band circuit for the underside. Hope you liked it. ^^
