Looking for a 1/24 or 1/35 Diving Beetle (from VOTOMs). I'd prefer plastic.
Also possibly looking for a 1/35 Brutish Dog.

Also, does anyone know if a 1/24 Fatty resin kit was ever done?

Thanks.

   MAX FACTORY (the GUYVER folks) makes a line of superb vinyl kits that
include  gorgeous 1/24 scale versions of the DI-BEETLE, the FATTY, and,  I
believe, the STRIKEDOG. These are fixed-pose models with great proportions
and excellent detail. Best of all, MF kits have pretty good distrubution
in North America...they're handled by GEOMETRIC DESIGNS which makes the
STAR TREK vinyls, and it's likely any comics or hobby shop that deals in
vinyl kits will be able to order from their catalog. Plus, the price will
be relatively painless...$45-70 depending on the place. You might also try
the notorious Scott Hards of Hobby Link Japan fame...he might be able to
get it for you for considerably less. Either way, good luck with it,
they're lovely kits, and I can't believe I still haven't gotten around to
getting one. Peace.
