  1. Huh. Those kana really do spell “Cosmo Tiger II” (コスモ タイガ = “kosumo taiga”).

    The three kanji in a box — I assume that’s the artist name? (Starting with image #4 — missile, Cosmo Tiger II, assault boat, weapons, etc.) I’m building LEGO models of classic anime mecha for public display, and I want to correctly attribute the original designs, so signatures on model sheets count as a primary source (preferable to, for example, entries in the encyclopedia at Anime News Network).

    I wonder why the callouts are in Japanese, but “SIDE VIEW” etc. are in English?
