Okay, the other one was closed, so we need to start a new one.

Current build and next build in one picture :D

Wow, the old page finally got retired! Nice build so far on your Hornet, will your SV-51 be in Nora's color scheme or are you doing a custom? B))

the hornet is just a cheap Revell modelkit that I use to check out some alternate building methods and coloring. The SV-51 will be colored in Nora-scheme. I'm not that much of a customizer. The only custom things I did were those two things:

The F-14 was a cheap Italeri kit I "modded" into a Macross Zero F-14 with redundant pilots from two of my VF-0 kits. The VF-1 was a normal Hasegawa Hikaru VF-1A. But I did another paintjob on it. Both were done without Airbrush, so they look a bit messy. Pre-ordered two of those Hasegawa VF-11, so I can do a custom-paint. Thought about VF-X II scheme :D

Nice collection Urashiman. I do recommend dusting them off so everyone can see your painting skills. Unless you intentional added that detail so your models will better blend. :ph34r: :P

I just successfully SNAPPED the nose part OFF my Zentradi Flagship Resin model while trying to get the 2 halves to glue together properly. Outstanding. I KNEW I wasn't going to do well on this resin kit stuff. :mellow: :angry: :angry: :angry:

Had a chance to airbrush my "pickle", as my GF has lovingly named it...Top only, gotta hunt down the color I want to use for the bottom this week hopefully. I think it turned out pretty good. The dark dirt wash i plan to use will darken the green up a shade or two... B)) I'm using this pic as a color guide sort of...

Technically, this 'WAS' lying on my workbench a month and 1/2 ago....
After I completed the SDF-1 custom, I was going to go back to my old VF-25S Ozma. However, I was derailed by this baby. :o
When I saw it, I just couldn't resist! :lol:

Still slowly working through my Mosacato 1/24 Raptor. Canopy and cockpit are just sitting there for reference. Weathering is almost done. Trying to match the CG model, not the 1:1.

Jesse! The weathering on the raptor is masterful! One of the best I've seen on these boards.

I was reading a hobby book a while back at a store and I saw this model by Moscato which reminded me of the project on MW. Was the one in the book this exact same model?

That is one frakking detailed Raptor Myersjessee, are their pilots with this kit? (Boomer, Helo...)

I hope Moebius makes a Raptor, shes one sweet bird. B))

Exo...it is the same kit. John does amazing work.

505th, I agree 100%...would love to see a Mobius Raptor. There are 2 figures with the kit. A Boomer pilot and a Helo for the rear seat.

I'll never forget seeing a couple of these at an airshow in Windsor around 1991. Very impressive beast, but certainly due for retirement.

That is frakking sweet, can't wait to see the completed kit!! :D

One of my buddies whose the manager for Smith Bros Hobbies in L.A. said the latest rumor was that Moebius will be doing the PEGASUS, but no word of a Raider or Raptor yet, keeping fingers crossed!!

Couldn't agree more, last time I saw one of the kits on Ebay I was outbid, almost had it! But I'd prefer it in 1/32 to match my Vipers! B))

Ok Guys.....Here she is...the model I have wanted since childhood...finished. This was my first multiple piece resin kit..different to say the least from a normal kit...aside from the very difficult task of getting the two halves together, I really enjoyed building it. I tried to take my time and I am pleased with how it came out. Pics really don't do the weathering justice...hard to get a good pic of it on the green paint. The kit was made by Wayne at Scale Solutions down in Australia. It was very well done in my opinion. B)) Now I just have to figure out where and how I am going to fit it in my Macross cabinet! :o
