  1. 1/55 Custom shop 2017 Edition!

    Thanks Mike i´m glad you liked the heads . Actually yeah Jerry sold most of my recast stuff in the USA back then. I really like the 1/55 so yeah pretty much everything i´ve done has been for those. Did do some VF1S heads (1/48) too. I´ll shortly update my website ( as well as i can lol i´m not a web pro ) I´ll post on MW some of my stuff when i have some armor complete. First will be the Ostrich. I want to do some custom stuff on that like that antena and maybe even make some structural change. I always though it should be a tad bit fatter for example. Also the ARm armor i want to modilfy. never cared for that very breakable clip. I would love to see more custom 1/55. Strange thing is that i haven´t seen a lot of my armor painted and such and i did sell a lot of those back in the days. I really like jung´s customs too . I still have some custom decals aswell, someone made those for my elint seeker/Ostrich conversion kits . Can´t for the live of me remember his name i´m getting old lol
  2. 1/55 Custom shop 2017 Edition!

    Hey there. i just came back from my very short summer hollidays and saw this post. I got to say that looks great all the stuff you've done on these 1\55. Actually back in the days there were 2 Rob's doing some recasting so it can get a bit confusing heh. I'm obviously the Rob from Robsthingies.com and yes i'm getting back to recasting i actually (re)did a whole lot of molds already but this is your thread so i won't talk about That . I guess everything is invented already LOL. the other day i was casting the arm armor of my Ostrich and found that it won't work for some reissues and such and was thinking about changing it to a clip on system like the Elint armor has but i suppose this is that same system right? I'm going to make it so anyways as it IS a better system. BTW i spoke with EXO about what can and can't be sold and i understood as long as it is modified it's okay. They don't permit the strait recasts anymore though. In the end everything is based on the origenal stuff so with that rule you couldn't sell any parts at all i guess. Luckaly it doesn't seem to be that stricked. Pardon my english it's not my native lenguage. Again i love seeing the 1/55 getting some love at it's still my favorite. Keep these custom 1/55's going .
  3. Long time no see guys.

    Hah ..... ok didn´ t remember i went that far ... nice. I´ll have to give that another try one of these days
  4. Long time no see guys.

    Hi there. wow always cool to see that stuff heh at least what i see there is partialy my recast right? The legs look like origenal parts . I know i was experimenting with color casting but i don´t think i ever got it that right hah.

  7. Long time no see guys.

    Yup here ya go http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?showtopic=31664 Really? official? darn i never knew that .
  8. Long time no see guys.

    Hey guys. Hah yeah it was because of you Mazinger that i came back to Macross and casting/customizing/recasting. I can of course understand the issues with copyright i guess when you have to draw a line you have to draw it. Havn´t seen anyone using their licences to make more chunkey monkey´s or their armor´s heh. *Hint to Bandai* I guess ill have to start customize the chunky monkey stuff hah. Thanks for the explanation Exo. I also wanted to continue the SDP but i saw a beautifull SDP already . is the SDP actualy copyright? Wasn´t that a fanmade ? AAAh yeah ValkyrieExchange , there was Jerry´s site vf1x i still have great memories of the time i was in LA for the MW con. Must say i wasn´t at my best back then, ( probably some of you guys that met me there noticed ) one of the reasons i left Macross then i had on my shoulders already when i was in LA. I had a hugh depression back then that lasted about 2 years. Darn thing about these things is that you don´t see it comming. At least i didn´t. The other was more simple ...cash hehehe Macross was becomming a big money pitt , new toys comming out and all. Was constructing my new house back then too . Resin and molding silicone was pretty expensive 10 years ago ( at least it was here ) so i just fell in the black hole hahaha. Oh well lets see what we can make heh.
  9. Long time no see guys.

    Okay i´m not showing anything here but i just wanted to say hi to every one as i´ve been away for a loooong time (what 13 years now?) Not even sure if the old guys from back in the days are still here . I didn´t realy know where to put this as there seems to be no *general talk about whatever* forums unless i just have a bad eye sight hehehe. I do have a question that you could consider belongs here, What happend to all the recasting stuff that always was on MW? i see it´s forbidden now? Are there any threads explaining to how this came to be? i can´t seem to find them. I did find some threads about how i fell in the macross black hole ahahaha . I liked that. . I was contacted for some of my custom heads and armor recasts last week and it kinda tickled me to get back to my old hobby. Hoped to relive some of those ol glory days heh . Seems like those are gone then . BTW mods if this is in the wrong section then i´m sorry, feel free to move it . Special greetings to Shawn and Graham who i see are still here after all these years. Greatings to Everybody. Rob
  10. 1/48 SDP-1 Stampede Valkyrie

    Okay so i know this is an old thread but i just wanted to say WOW, very beautifully made . I started this project like 10 to 13 years ago . Never completed it . I don´t think mine would have been as good as this one though. I always tryed to keep the casting side of it in my head. Great work. Rob

  13. Dangers of superglue inhalation

    Hi guys long time no see. My 2 cents would be that mask and ventilate as if u use that mask but use the glue/resin/whatever stuff to long without venting u will breath it in still afterwards when u take it off. This is a very good and informing thread and should be taken very serious. I know what im talking about So do they .
