The 1:200 scale SLV-111 Daedalus Interview and Ebook Series !

Daedalus Blueprint Side

 

 

 

Since 2006, MechTech, aka Phill Allen, has been working at re-creating the SDF Macross TV SLV-111 Daedalus as a 1/200 scale model.   Eight years later,  this model is almost done!

To celebrate MechTech’s completion of his  long-term Macross project,  a series of of ebooks, interviews, detailed completed model photographs, and videos are being put together for sharing with the rest of the Macross fan community!

You can listen to the first interview here!

The interview was not exactly an interview, since I was looking for commentary from  MechTech on his experiences with building the 1/200 Daedalus in 2006.  The interview has been edited for “um’s”, “ah’s”, long pauses and internet connection drops.

 

Volume one of the 1/200  SLV-111 Daedalus ebook is an edited compilation of the 2006 Macross World forum posts as seen in this Macross World forum thread.  All the forum photograhs and videos will be included in the ebook.  Currently, the ebook is in Word Document format to allow for the multimedia content.

Download Volume One of the 1 200 SLV 111 Daedulus Project Phill Allen.

Version 1.0, Word Document, 87 pages, 20.4 MB

The Daedalus project ebook required some textual editing of Mechtech’s  forum posts in order to make the ebook a little easier to read.  If you spot any typos in the ebook or would like some clarification or re-writes then you can contact boinger via the Macross World forum message system.

Happy Holidays!

“Macrosshare Radio” (more like a podcast) presents one more episode in an ongoing series of interviews with creative Macross fans !

In this 1 hour 3 minute episode, John Moscato also known as Captain America on the Macross World forum:

  • Shares his experiences about his latest completed modeling work on the 1/48 “Pinky Space Crab” resin model kit
  • Answers some questions from his “fans”
  • Reveals his thoughts on the modeling design process for the legendary 1/32 Legioss resin model kit
  • Discusses the pro’s and con’s on hobby modeling for the Wonderfest modeling conventions.

A production model diary .pdf file has been compiled to chronicle John’s recently completed and sold out 1/48 Inbit Gurab resin model kit.

1/32 Legioss production model diary is also available for reading, so  you can see which parts of the Legioss model John is talking about.

John Moscato Interview and Model Retrospective

Four model examples of John Moscato’s handi-work.

Saturday, November 2, 2013 at noon / 1200 hours Central Standard Time on the Macross World forum, a live interview will be held on the Macross World forum with John Moscato / Captain America, model maker extraordinaire!

The John Moscato online interview will be presented both as a forum interview with questions / comments / pictures posted on the Macross World forum and as a live podcast on the Macrosshare Radio Mixlr account.

Initially, I will be posting 28 interview questions on the forum from a recent email interview with John. One interview question / answer will be posted every 3-5 minutes, so that you can share comments, pictures and pose questions to John about his modeling projects during the interview. Every 15 minutes, a new segment of the ongoing live interview will be posted through the “Macrosshare Radio” Mixlr account. I will be posting weblinks to the interview segments on the forum as the podcasts become available. The live audio interview podcast will be presented as 3-4 parts of 10 minutes each. Next week, I will present a final edition of the John Moscato audio interview podcast.

For this afternoon, John will answer as many questions as he can before he heads out for a Halloween party.

There will also be made available on bittorrent the “Moscato Model Retrospective Collection”! It will include a a large collection of completed model pictures contributed by the many talented model builders from the Macross World forum as well as Model Production Diairies in PDF format that show John’s model work in progress.
