  1. TV SDF-1 Macross 1/1600 (1/2400)

    As promised ill be starting the ok im using a Tamiya Modellers Knife, Metal Ruler, adhesive lacquer, syringe w/ blunt needle, Cutting Mat, tweezers, cyanoacrylate Thin (Super glue), a dull needle or similar, and a pair of scissors for rough cutting. the syringe is for easy application and dosage of the glue of cause it doesnt have to Tamiya any model knife can be used, in the end its what you feel most comfortable with. now the super glue is not a must... but i find it very useful in certain situations! the needle is for bevel the paper on foldlines...(if u have absolute no clue as to what i just wrote, tell me and ill post a video of it) now first up, a little fun fact: These are in scale!! and remember: to those of you out there who is also building this model, ask me if u have any trouble with this build... or if you feel that i havent explained a troublesome part, thoroughly enough! what i did firstly was to scan the pages from the original magazine and scale them up from A4 to A3 which changes the size from 50 cm in length to 75 cm thats why it seems so big on my cutting mat, just an info so you dont get confused ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Ok here we go! First some simple parts should be straight foreward now this bigger piece, its important to start glueing the big flaps first, to make sure they lineup with the panelines. a friend of mine could not figure out how the next big piece would fit together, it actually to me a couple of glances.. the need to be seperated first this is it for today.....

  16. Macross Island Diorama

    i might aswell make this an actual thread... i have have started my very first Diorama, and its is the SDF-1 situated on macross island, its will be in scale 1/8000. the SDF-1 model im using in the diorama is a Bandai 1/8000 storm attacker kit, i converted into Cruiser mode, i had to remodel some of the parts since they where not to scale or was simply the wrong shape, changes made to parts where: Main cannon (gave it more bulk and more details) Main Cannon connector (changed shape completely) bridge boom (made from scratch) bridge (needed separation and details) main thrusters (looked to much like feet, changed shape and added details) the diorama rough sketch is pretty much done, need more roads though.

  19. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    coming along nicely... btw where did you get them?
  20. Macross Island Diorama

    All of the above reasons are also valid.. But are we forgetting that there were two animation studios working apart, one of which weren't so particular when it came to scale of various things... Just some thoughts
  21. Macross Island Diorama

    that looks great and is "doable" at that scale 1/4000.... however it doesn't look like SDFM they only have 9 - 10 years to build both the city, military base and rebuild the ship which they first need to study, also in the study phase there probably weren't that many civilians to build a city, since the site probably was off limits... also the un - anti un wars took some time... so in the end there probably weren't that many buildings above 3 - 5 storys i assume most, military personnel lived on the base...
  22. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Yes it really sucks... A lot of money is riding on that train to God knows where...
  23. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    thx saved them for the next Diorama
  24. Macross Island Diorama

    that's actually a good idea, but then it should be the entire island and surrounding sea loving that idea. actually i can do that, the board in the picture is only the "blueprint" so to speak the actual diorama display in its current state...
  25. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Yes that would be a very interesting one to do... adding dust clouds around the SDF-1 as its trying to take off... but are there any good pictures of that Mars base where you see all the base? a mix of these and a touch of me...
