Life-size aerial craft model on display in Tokyo before anime's October 14 debut

The official website for this month's Last Exile -Fam, The Silver Wing- television anime series announced on Saturday that the life-size model of the main characters' vanship is now complete. The site posted the last of the video reports chronicling the aerial model's construction. The model is on display at the Kichijōji Anime Wonderland 2011 event in Tokyo from October 8 to October 10.

Funimation licensed the anime for North America, and the international television channel Animax Asia will show each episode within a day of its airing in Japan.

Animax describes the story of the anime:

"I've made up my mind! I'm going to steal that ship!"

All source of life originates from the Grand Lake.

At this very sacred lake, the battle of Ades Federation and Turan Kingdom has begun. Ades Federation, armed with crushing force and massive battleships and its sights set to conquer the world, invade the Turan Kingdom. With the Ades troops heading to their beloved country, Turan now lies at the brink of collapse. The princesses of Turan (Millia il Velch Cutrettola Turan and Liliana il Grazioso Merlo Turan) look on as a small vanship named Vespa cruises above their heads.

"We'll steal your flagship from now, from this battle field!"

The Vespa continues to weave through the barrage of bombs, while the fleets of Ades close in on Turan.

What are the motives of Luscinia, the man leading Ades Federation into the war? And what is the secret behind 'Exile'?

The first episode will premiere in Japan on October 14 at 26:00 (effectively October 15 at 2:00 a.m.) after an introductory special with the staff and cast aired this weekend.

Thanks to Chris Leung for the tip.
