  1. Got mine today!!! Thanks Valk009!
  2. Oh dear, now I have to decide how I'm gonna paint it...and if I should build it in flight, or gear down. Decisions, decisions...
  3. Oh boy, put me down...money's tight, but I'll donate a kidney or something.
  4. I don't suppose you've got any pics? I can vacu-form a new canopy if I need to. I'd really just like to make sure that the general shape is correct. I can scribe panel-lines, scratch-build the interior, and add more detail...but if the whole shape is wrong, I'm not going to go that far. I'm in the mood for a challenge, but not that much of one!
  5. Anyone have any pics of the horrible Monsters in Motion recast (un-built)? I'm tempted to flex my modeling muscles a bit and give it a go. I wanna know what I'll be getting myself into.
  6. Maybe those huge helmets are needed to house the eye-tracking gear and the HUD? Yes, I know, even the F-35 HMDS is smaller... Or maybe the UN Spacey is generating income by selling Oakley advertisements? Military budget's gotta be pretty high.
  7. I'm glad I'm not the only one that's stumped! It's funny, I can rationalize almost any aspect of Macross technology to some degree...GERWALK mode, missile spamming, even hand-to-hand combat with a Capital Ship. But I'm totally irritated that I can't rationalize shoulder pads.
  8. Okay, I've been wondering this for a long time, but I've been too embarrassed to ask. I can't take it anymore...I have to know. What in the blazes are those HUGE shoulder pads for on the flight-suits? You know, the Yellow and Black striped things? I come from an aviation background, and, for the life of me, can't come up with a reason. I thought they might be flotation devices, but in Macross Zero, you can clearly see those in addition to the shoulder pads. I thought maybe some sort of Ejection Seat protector...like they come down to cover the arms during an ejection. But the VF-11 has a capsule, and the pilot still wears the shoulder pads. I know that part of the fun in any sci-fi 'verse (be it Star Trek, Star Wars, whatever) is coming up with "realistic" uses for things that are obviously just there to "look cool". But I can't come up with anything for the pads. And yes, I realize the absurdity of arguing over shoulder pads in a world with jet fighters that turn into robots.
  9. First time poster here... I've been searching e-bay and scouring the net, and I just can't seem to find a 1/72 VF-11B. I know that Club-M and Reppu <sp?> made one, and apparently they are worth some major cash (which I don't have). Anyone know of any upcoming 1/72 re-releases? Or any other alternatives? If not, I'm gonna have to go through Shapeways.com and make my own...but it wouldn't be as nice as a real resin kit. -Steve
