    I'll take one of each, please!

    I wonder how awesome this would look using the Stratasys J750 full color printer that Shapeways is announcing.

    I used Micro Mesh Polishing Pads. The kit has 9 pads ranging from 1500 grit to 12000 grit. I wet sanded both sides of the cockpit with each pad for a few minutes. I polished with the 12000 grit until the pad started to fall apart. I then dipped the cockpit in Pledge\Future acrylic floor polish. I'm thinking of spraying it with a bit of Tamiya clear yellow but I need to test it on a scrap piece of clear plastic.

    I was able to spend some time trying out the Mission Models paint and sprayed a few parts. Their system has a Polyurethane Intermix that you add to the acrylic paint. So far I like the way it sprays out of the airbrush. Here is a photo of some parts along with the polished canopy and some decals I printed for it. I'm surprised how clear the canopy turned out. I gave it a dip in future after polishing.

    That looks so cool. I've been priming and sanding mine and just received my shipment of Mission Model paints. Going to give them a try this weekend.

    I'm interested in one of those canopies. I also need to get the magnets but can't find ones in the proper dimensions.

    Yup nice and clear. That surface is looking smooth on the VF-9.

    Max Factory Minimum Factory 1/20 scale figures

    It sure does! I wish it was a larger scale but I'm still going to pick this up to go with the VF and Minmays.

    Macross figures

    Wow that looks better than I expected. Glad I ordered a few. Gotta get Minmay before getting Misa.

    I placed my order today. I ended up going with the white plastic since the professional plastic isn't as detailed or smooth as the old Hi-def Acrylate but is just as expensive. I still want to get another set for Gerwalk mode and have an M&M set but lets see how the sanding goes with this one first. I also contacted EXO for the canopies. Thanks again Xigfrid!

    It looks GORGEOUS! I am definitely getting one of these. I know the professional plastics will probably double the cost but would it be possible to make them available? Thank you!

    1/6 VF-1 Valkyrie cockpit speaker

    Does the cockpit display have volume control or make any sounds along with the lights?
