    Here's their thread from the Workshop section: And here's the direct Shapeway's link for @Xigfrid's Missiles and Pylons. https://www.shapeways.com/shops/xigfrid3dshop?section=Missiles+and+Pylons+DX+compatible And Xigfrid's posted this on the 3D Model Request page showing some set-ups: I'm also adding this section if you're interested to change VF-31's Weapon Pods done by @Sanity is Optional and @Xigfrid. Hope that helps. And this time hopefully I'll get Upvote than Downvote.

    Fixed up my Super Ostrich a bit with some leftover materials. "Hey Hayase, we're the only two people left on Earth. Want to start repopulating?"

    While I await my VT-1, I figured I'd post this: More shots from the same setup here: http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/topic/35121-148fps-160fps-172-12k-13k1100-and-now-1144/?do=findComment&comment=1416386

    That part looks to be easily repairable. Get yourself some ABS cement (Tenax, Ambroid, or even Testors' Liquid cement for plastic) and a toothpick. Use the brush applicator of the liquid ABS solvent -- lightly loaded, not dripping -- and apply a small drop to the crack, let capillary action carry the liquid into the split; next, wedge the toothpick between the plastic and the metal to force and brace the crack closed; lastly, let it cure overnight and then cut or scrape off any plastic that oozed out. Done, and good as new.

    I tried with celshading technique for the Hasegawa eggplane, I think is tacky, but because of that it suits the charm of the eggplanes

    For regular resin it's about 30. Smooth-On 327 is more agressive than the regular 310 I use, so mold-life is cut in half. Quick Saturday update: I had worked-out a decent system to mount the side saddle-bags using the existing notch in the seat bulkhead. The con is that repeated installation/removal of the latches might damage/loosen the exhaust pipe, because the latch partially fit behind the exhaust for stability. After a bit of fiddling, I created something even better: easier to add/remove, and puts no stress on this very expensive figure's parts. The part in white is the new addition. The mock-up is in styrene, but will be green resin in the kit. You literally just slide it forward into place from behind the bike, or pull rearward to remove. This is kinda how I figured it would work IRL. When the transformation sequence is activated, a locking peg holding the latches/saddle-bags is released. When the rider guns the gas and wheelies, the whole thing just slides off onto the ground. It also leaves room for a vanity plate and doubles as a crude rear mud-guard.

    Finally getting around to posting some results of a little photo shoot I did several weeks ago. Can you tell I love super VF-1s?

    This is a great joy to transform it twice a day and trying to find nicer poses.

    I got the movie in the mail last night and watched it immediately. You honestly can't tell it's orange in the show. Of course everything moves too fast to see much of anything during the action sequences anyway... In the book that comes with the film there are two screen shots directly from the film. In one they appear orange, in the other they appear red. FYI I did post a mini-review in the TV and Movies section if you're interested in my thoughts.

    The whole Upvote/Downvote thing is stupid and utterly meaningless IMHO. It's something to appease the younger generation I suppose who have to have something to "Like" or "Dislike". Let's just get back to discussing some god*mn Macross toys. FFS. EDIT -- Let's see how many downvotes I get for that!!!

    This is the HMR thread. It's so stupid to see people downvoting pics the MWF users post here of their HMR figures. I'd love to see one of the downvoting trolls to come out of the closet and explain what their problem is

    Finally got some time to work on these. It’s been a while I wanted to try some “real” color schemes on valks. Not a fan of small scales but it was fun.

    Gads, acquiring these toys is more difficult than it should be. But, gotta get em all!

    For the record, I don't think it's been said yet. But one of my favorite things about the VT-1 is the shiny metal color of it's feet. Perfection. Check out the reflection of the leg panel on the left foot. Also for the record, I never noticed any orange miscoloration until I saw people talking about it here, and when I went back and checked I could barley see it. Although I'm not fond of the concept of the DYRL 2-seaters in general (Hate the tiny tailfins), I actually love the HMR VT-1 as it was executed.

    Captain's log: Tuesday, quitting time. Basic molds are done, duplicate molds are in the pipeline and the castings are awesome! The visor is looking really sweet, too, and if I'm lucky, I can game the mixture just a little so that the part remains slightly flexible and less prone to breakage. I'll be casting these already tinted, so as to save those with lesser modeling skills the chore of painting them. As for the tint, this test-shot is a bit too blue, so I'll adjust the color to a blue-gray as seen in the anime. The RPG will come with a clear lens for the targeting system, but I'll also be giving you all a little extra glow-in-the-dark sheet, which you can trim and place beneath the lens on the RPG to simulate a night-vision system. Simple, but effective! Also, I'm finishing up the markings before I send them to print. You have markings/serial/instructions for the RPG, markings for the saddle-packs as well as for the Gallant weapons. Will post a For Sale thread tomorrow w/shipping prices... I'm pumped!

    Just a quick reminder, I'll start accepting pre-orders for the 1/12 Mospeada accessories on Wednesday. Better pics coming soon.
