BLOG: The Next Generation —PATLABOR— 1/48 AV-98 Ingram
|There’s more from The Next Generation —PATLABOR—, and here’s the reason for all those model kit reissues. Peculiarly, Bandai went 1/48 scale with this release, not too big like the 1/35 Master Grades and not too small like the 1/60 kits. Though for reference, it could size-up quite nicely with 1/100 scale Gundam kits.
As with anything making the transition from animation to live-action, this version of the AV-98 Ingram has much more detail but still retains those key design notes from the original. And Bandai has done a great job replicating these, especially if there’s a 1/1 scale replica that exists for comparison.
