  1. Macross in the weirdest places

    They likely think that BSG or SW invented giant capital ships... knowledge be the power, but ignorance is bliss
  2. RAMPAGE Movie

    They couldn't have waited until July for us Canucks?!
  3. WIP: Alternate Weapons Pods for VF-31

    That thought bodes well for those waiting on Chuck's AWAC/EWAC version...
  4. RAMPAGE Movie

    I hope so! wow, it's been a while since I've been this jazzed by a turn-off the brain and eat popcorn movie... I don't remember much about the game other than it was super fun... many dollars lost to the local arcade.
  5. Bandai DX VF-31

    Had a similar issue with my cleaners. it was all minor stuff, no damage or anything. My issue was cleaners entering my hobby room while a project was in-progress and "assuming things were junk/garbage/mess"............. and the issue was mostly solved when I mounted a Broadsword under an "Abandon All Hope, Ye Who Enter Here!" sign on the door... all of a sudden they didn't seem to want to touch that door... then one day they let the cat escape*.................... VERY angry words were had, employees terminated, and I haven't had an issue since. My commiserations with your troubles, hope you find a solution that doesn't involve cracking heads, metaphorically [or otherwise]. Personally I like the "send them a bill" idea, only you should draw up 2 versions: A) what repairing a lost/damaged part would cost B) what replacing a toy you couldn't get spare parts for would cost they may be "cool transformers toys"... but the cost [and other value to us super-dimension-heads] is no joke.
  6. Macross Island Diorama

    The entire scientific and industrial might of the UN was focused on this project, and the defence thereof. 9 years and change for a city like that considering the global devastation wreaked when Macross made planetfall isn't TOO crazy... Tidal waves and droughts would mean alot of ppl willing to move and work for food, shelter and safety. And the City was so big that despite the Interstellar war breaking out, 40,000 civilians and change survived being accidentally spaced by the SDF-1's emergency fold... Going by the screen grabs that's a city of a couple Million...
  7. Hi-Metal R

    So I caved and Purchased a Max/Milia HMR set........................................ Deep goes this rabbit-hole! I'm going to end up with an VE-1 [Battroid VE-1!] and a VT-1... the VF-2SS is very tempting... If they break into Macross7 or Frontier I'm gonna be in trouble.
  8. Macross Books

    The blurb is so awesome, I'ma be VERY disappointed if they fix the typos before I get a hold of mine!
  9. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    I wasn't sure how much you could improve on the Tiger... but WOW! she looks incredible so far ZOmBe! I love the chin pods... reminds me of the BUFF, only slim and trim like a fighter should be... and the asymmetry is also a nice touch. Can't wait to see it all gussied up with some paint and livery.
  10. Arcadia 1/60 Super VF-1J Max & Millia Release

    there may be a fair number of folks who were halfway to a complete set?
  11. Aircraft Super Thread Mk.VII

    I'm always afraid of the day I hear of an unfortunate oscillation that resulted in the boom impaling whatever bird was hooked to it... refueling a B-2, B-1 or a BUFF by boom must result in an acute case of "enlarged metallic cojones"
  12. Macross in the weirdest places

    How Giant?
  13. Gundam Plamodel Thread IV

    Black lining on white paint looks VERY stark, and anime-ish. I use browns/greys on white mostly. if it's an off-white, I'll darken as I need. I use Flory models Clay/water-based washes, so they're pretty easy to mix.
  14. Ace Combat 7

    Preferred entry speed for Pugachev's Cobra is between 250-300 knots if I recall, so the ~500km indicated on the backflip makes sense; if you high-alpha-depart or cobra at high enough speed you'll fold the wings even on a Sukhoi. I wonder if you can get into "post stall maneuvering" if you, you know, stall instead of depart the aircraft...
