  1. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Thats a great collection of Zentraedi. I love that Breetai sculpt...Would love to have one. I also have a clear Zentraedi Soldier from Exo/Plastic Cretins on my to do list.
  2. Hasegawa 1:4000 SDF-1 (DYRL)

    There must be over 500 fiber lights in there! My little nupetiet has almost 100.

    Can we see your boat in scale with more figures on the deck? I cant envision the details at that size. We also want to see it in the water, if you plan to have it out!! Shading is something I am studying, but right now I dont have control of my airbrush yet... trying to balance PSI and thinning level with distance to model... Lots to learn. Right now, I get a lot of splatter and it ruins my model if I try to shade. Awaiting a new Iwata HP to see if that helps me out, as opposed to my entry-level Iwata Neo.

    Never realized how small they are, or you have enormous hands!
  5. Hasegawa 1:4000 SDF-1 (DYRL)

    Definitely. He's the MAN. I got into lighting because of his stuff... And wanting to light the SDF-1 like the Christmas episode.

    Dang Mechtech! That's too good. We are not worthy... What's it based on? Nope, in real life its only 10cm tall, so no need to bother. Plus, I don't know how
  7. Hasegawa 1:4000 SDF-1 (DYRL)

    This is the one I've been waiting for. MT, how do we motorize that Daedalus hinge to open? I want to put together a dream list of lighting, and I need some more ideas: 1- Fiber everywhere (with sequenced lighting and different colors) 2- Lighted bridge and antennas 3- Sequence lighting on runway 4- Chest and Leg thruster lights Any other ideas?
  8. Gundam Plamodel Thread IV

    You need to take them off the sprue and sand them down, or those rough sprue edges will ruin all the painting and weathering you are planning to do. Then prime and paint each piece on a stick. To save time, you can do an arm, a leg, etc, at one time if they're the same color.

    Thanks Thom! I appreciate it.

    And she's up! Kaiyodo Garfish from Nadia.
  11. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Thanks! These are 1/15 Kaiyodo resin figures from Japan auctions. Probably cost me USD 10. There are General Products versions as well. My first pure figure, so it was a big challenge.
  12. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Got a second wind and finished according to plan. Just needs a satin coat to bring down the gloss.
  13. Macross Island Diorama

    Some sweet dioramas there. Amazing stuff!
  14. Macross Books

    Those arians were great in Macross. But remind me, where they from Ares or ancient Persian?

    That's some nice needle work! Google this for a laugh, "Men who knit". My 10-yr old daughter does crochet and knitting. It's a nice hobby.
  16. Macross Books

    I wouldnt worry about it. There are probably worse issues to have!
  17. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Jean is pretty much done. Next time, I think a pen would be better for panel lining, rather than the wash.
  18. Gundam Plamodel Thread IV

    I have an Iwata Neo, and I'm not that happy with it. I can't control spraying in small areas, due to splatter and congestion. Will the Iwata Eclipse HP-CS be better for me? I have 2 years experience.
  19. Arcadia 1/60 Super VF-1J Max & Millia Release

    I love those anime paint schemes. Honestly, the guy is too good. He has a ton of stuff here. One day...
  20. Gundam Plamodel Thread IV

    Seems like a lot of trouble and expense for nothing. A normal airbrush is probably more economical and reliable in the long run.
  21. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    I noticed in your 2 frames that the color codes and tone of the SDF-1 matches the cityscape. I'm sure you can pull it off. I think that's what's lacking in other dioramas.
  22. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    What key frame background art are you basing this on? I've gone back to my old process for figure painting. I'm glossing everything before masking. And instead of masking fluid, blue poster tack doesn't peel the paint. The imperfect edges get hand paint touch ups at the end.
  23. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Your paint job is a great upgrade for that thing. Your English is pretty great too. My first resin "kit" is primed! It was only 4 parts, but these things are tough... I wouldn't take on a larger kit without more practice.
  24. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Amazing display. We need one by one close ups like that.
  25. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    My God, you break all the rules! My little Garfish submarine made it through some tricky wiring. Twenty lights in there.
