    Where Can I Get Decals Made?

    I think JT Graphics is still in business. I've had pretty good experience using his decals in the past. http://jt-graphics.com/

    Macross Island Diorama

    Very Cool! Looks like you're off to a great start! That must be a pretty good-sized diorama. What are the full dimensions?

    Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Awesome job on ROM! He is one of my favorite characters. I think the original Marvel comics are very underrated. I wasn't too impressed by the artwork in the new IDW books though. Anyway, love to see ROM getting some attention! Can't wait to watch him come together!

    1/72 Bandai VF-1J build

    Can't wait to see how this turns out. I've got one of these waiting in the stash. I do like these old vintage kits. They had some great detailing for their time. Keep up the good work, and let us know if the kit presents any snags or tricky bits!

    Papercraft Draken III From Macross Delta

    Super cool! Did you design those yourself, or are they available to purchase/download from somewhere? Great work on them by the way. Seems like paper would be a great medium for building in that large scale.

    Mospeada and Southern cross modeled stuff

    Fantastic craftsmanship on those! It is too awesome how the Gallant can be assembled/disassembled into it's components. Love the Inbit too! I like to see the Mospeada modeling love!

    1/144 Queadluun Rau (Bandai)

    Amazing job on that old kit. You really brought Millia to life out of the original plain figure! Thanks for sharing all of your process. It's very inspiring!
  8. Very cool stuff there! I love the launch bay interior artwork! Did you do that yourself? Anyway, great work. It seems like you took a bit of a minimalist approach to the scratchbuilding and customizing. It gives a good effect and adds a bit of an organic feel to the valk. Like a previous poster said, it adds to the nolstalgic anime look of original Macross. It's awesome to see that you were able to stick with it and get this project finished even after some setbacks!
  9. The Valk is looking good! And that's a great tutorial!

    JM VF1J Hikaru

    Awesome job on that JM! You really did it the right way and it paid off. Did you sculpt the figure from scratch, or did you just modify the face/head on one?

    1/72 Moscato Regult Tactical Pod

    Looking great! Kind of looks like he got stuck out in the rain. This has been a great thread to watch. Thanks for all the pics!

    OH NO! This announcement may just signal the end of the "golden age" of Macross modelling! John, your skill and passion have been great blessings to many model builders and fans of Macross. I have always been so inspired by your kits and have been very thankful that I have had the opportunity to purchase them and interact with you during the creative process. It has also always been a pleasure to deal with you for any transaction. Your skill, creativity and professionalism should stand as a shining example to all small operation model kit makers. While we in the modelling community will definitely miss your fantastic kits, I sincerely hope that your move and career bring you much peace, joy and personal satisfaction. You have our best wishes for a limitless and fulfilling future! Please be sure to keep in touch with the community here and the people who will always appreciate you and your talent. Thanks for the great times!

    RC-4E Rabbit Interest Thread

    Interested in 1/72 unpainted. I'm glad someone is finally taking on this project. I do have a bit of concern for the dimensions. I assumed with room for what looks like up to 8 passengers and some small cargo stowage that it would be considerably larger than a Valkyrie. I guess the boxy shape gives more usable interior space? Never really sure how I feel about this design. Love it because it is Macross and has a utilitarian look to it. Obviously made for a specific purpose, and looks more realistically designed for space operations. However, it is not the most charismatic design.

    1/72 Nousjadeul Ger Moscato kit?

    Hey Captain! Just sent final payment. Sorry for the delay. The kit looks fantastic! Can't wait to get it. Mike, could I please get included for a set of decals for this? I would also like to purchase a set of the Monster kit decals as well to go along with my first run kit. I'll be watching for details about price etc. Thanks all you kit creators and wallet destroyers!

    1/72 Monstar V2 Finished kit

    Thanks for the comparison pics, but I'm sorry I asked. Now I really really really want to add the V2 to my collection! My wallet hates me.
