  1. I think that like Makoto Kobayashi, Ikuto Yamashita has become a prisoner of his CAD tools, his pre-Anima work was far more organic. And, like kanjrig mentioned, this EVA looses it's original concept. Still, Yamashita is ahead of the game in terms of general mecha design and I can't wait to see the full body.

    Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    I'd try polishing a grey base with graphite powder or similar metal powders. Even a light brushing produces a nice sheen.

    First teaser poster was sighted, so up goes the thread. It's Neill Blomkamp - expect cool robots, Sharlto Copley, mad bureaucracy, gangsters, and dirt. Oh and it has Sigourney Weaver and Hugh Jackman, too. And Die Antwoord, google them at your own risk... http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1823672/

    Ghost in the Shell Live Action - March 31, 2017

    As if the movie adaption was not enough, there's a comic anthology by western artists that's coming in September. https://kodanshacomics.com/series/ghost-in-the-shell-global-neural-network/ However, one of the artists makes a really good Shirow impression (minus Shirow's occasional sloppiness) https://www.instagram.com/musashinoelegy/

    Now tone down the yellow bits or make them pale gold and you have a Boss.

    Another thing to consider for a good gloss finish is to move "forward", i.e. in the direction of the airflow, over the surface, so that the mist of paint will be pushed away from areas with fresh paint. Do this while spraying at an angle and not perpendicular to the surface. It all sounds terribly complicated, but it will like driving a car after a while.

    If you get grainy surfaces, either your paint is too thick and you need to add more thinner, or you spray too far from the surface and the paint dries mid-air, so to speak. Try to get closer to the surface or get more output from your airbrush (I'd recommend the first, if you're not dealing with large, uniform surfaces like a car body).

    I never cared much for these kits, but with your paintjob it looks pretty sharp.

    Battle Angel Alita

    There might still be a good movie in there, but the trailer puts me off even more than the first one. At the moment, I see another Spy Kids episode. I never imagined the Scrapyard in such vibrant colors, but more like a District 9 place. Let's see how the telenovela style mixes with the ultraviolence that is a cornerstone of the manga.

    I'd cut close to the canopy edge with a rotary saw tool for your dremel and the sand away the rest with coarse sandpaper or a file. The rotary cutter is very comfortable since you don't' have to apply much pressure when cutting.

    In their defense, they produce some of the best Macross fighter artworks besides Tenjin's. I see them like DJs interpreting some original artist's work. Btw, is there any explanation for the brown/burnt iron (?) panel that runs around the lower half of the nacelles at the aft end?

    Are you modeling in C4D? Don't see that too often. Your shapes & proportions look good so far.

    Judging by other sources, the program will remain in development, it's just that mass production is postponed. One leg in the grave, one wing in the air.

    Shouldn't there also be the live-size walking Gundam for the 40th anniversary?

    I primed everything with a mix of 16 parts sky grey, 2 flat green and 4 field green to get rid of the blue plastic color, then used a mix of 8 white, 3 sky get and 1 flat green as a highlight color (all Tamiya acrylics) The original plan was to build the Hase fighter (which is all prepped) in parallel, but I think I need something different in between.
