  1. Nice man - love the aztecs. Awesome work!
  2. Yeah, the green line goes all back to the 1977 kit. It's not branching somewhere. Probably the newest Hasegawa mold or the Tamiya 1/72 F-14A. That'll be my guess. The Revell and Italeri kits are of inferior quality, even compared to the 1977 hasegawa mold (yes, even with rised panel lines). Anyway - I'll have fun with that F-14A. My old F-14A looks horrible, so I'll replace it.
  3. I did some research. The mold actually is from the mid 70s. And yes, probably have to rescribe the panel lines. I wish I would have known that before I ordered the kit... Oh no for #ยง$%&!? sakes... Yes - this is the Macross Zero F-14 mold. Why did they use this for a Macross kit? Quick and easy money probably right?
  4. I was happy to find something nice in the mail today. But then I checked the model... look at those panel lines and the bad mold issues. What is the mold from? The 70s? This'll be a lot of work I guess...
  5. Had some time again today and made some progress on my long time project. One day, I'll 3D print it. Scale will be 1/72. I try to make it as acurate as possible, so I am held up on trial an error, trying to match it to Kawamoris sketches. It also took me a while to get the Macross M3 pilot suit correct and still needs tweaking. What did you print that with? PLA? Looks nice
  6. Probably hahaha Holy Cow! This is pure skill. I can only dream about doing something like that in like 10 years or so hahaha
  7. I got a 3D pen for my birthday, and was a bit bored during Doctor who re-runs on TV, so I tinkered around with the pen and made this 1/144 VF-9. Sorry if there isn't much to see, the black got really glossy... next time I'll use other PLA.
  8. Oh - 3DS Max; so you are a man of culture?
  9. Sorry - "Silvester" is the German word for "New Years Eve". Yeah - we did it at night, some hours before new years eve. I remember sticking a normal firework rocket into the revell 1/32 F-104 Star Fighter. It had a removable jet engine, so the rocket was fitting really good in there. The model had rubber tires and the wheels were rolling. So we put it on the street and ignited the rocket. Due to the F-104s messy aerodynamics, especially at a scale of 1/32, there was no lift off. It just raced down the street and then blew up in a glorious fireball. Later we found the lower part of the main bod
  10. Well, mine was standing in the shopwindow for a while. I saw it there for at least 2 or 3 years. This might be a cause of the terrible quality of the model. It has been there, standing in the sun for ages until someone (me) purchased it. Even after the putty it looked terrible. I kept it for a year until I decided to destroy it in the Silvester cleanup (for my family that means, sticking fireworks into discarded models and watch them blow up for fun). I had the TOS Enterprise NCC-1701 from AMT/ERTL. It was a terrible kit, but not as terrible as most of the Revell stuff. Most kits I b
  11. That F-14 ... no ... no - never again. I had to use 3 tubes of putty to fill all the gaps on this one. Worst kit ever... I wish you the best of luck on this one.
  12. Using it since 2002 or so. No issue so far.
  13. Wow color! - my back in the day photos are black and white
  14. That would be awesome. Should I send you a PM?
  15. Hey - nice info. Do you have the Master File? If yes, could you provide me with a higher resolution picture of the comparision and the side view of the VF-4A? I'd like to make a 3D model of that.
