    Ace Combat 7

    I would pay serious money for a decent size die cast Falken. If they made it in Razgriz colors with an opening laser bay and a built in laser pointer they could put any price they wanted on it and I'd find a way to pay.

    Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    That was a phenomenal waste of money; I got the first frame arm kit assembled and completely lost any motivation to do anything further. The amount of time and effort to get this to something I would consider displayable vastly exceeds what I'm willing to put in for something that can do nothing more than sit on a shelf picking up dust. If anyone's interested in some Frame Arm and M.S.G. kits (and some un-opened acrylic paints and modeling supplies) I'm going to have a ton available in a sale thread once I sort through what I have and how much it cost per item.

    Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Thanks for the advise everyone; I've ditched the marker idea and have some Vallejho mecha color acrylics, primers, coatings, and supplies en route, I figure if I'm going to be painting it I might as well try and do it right. Besides with what I spent on the Frames and MSG weapons + kits (an impulsive shopper, Kotobukiya's line up, nothing to do, and a extra paycheck is a bad combination) I really want to get some decent looking pieces out of it so I don't feel like I wasted a ton of money.

    Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    I have a modeling question and this seems to be the most applicable thread to ask in. I have no model building experience but finally caved and ordered a few Frame Arms kits form HLJ cause they looked cool and the description said they didn't need glue or paint; looking into them further though they apparently do need paint for the details and accent work. Will the Gundam paint markers HLJ sells work for the details rather than having to use regular paints? I'm hoping they will cause I just don't have the patience to deal with painting. Any insights on the paint or other advise for building these would be welcome.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Imagine how I feel; I didn't have room to display it so didn't open anything further than the shipper box when it arrived. So now I have a MISB 31A sitting with my other valk boxes and any time I think about opening it I get reminded that I could sell it for a 100% profit at minimum. I'm something of a completionist so I'll probably never sell it but that's enough money that I still havn't opened it.

    Correct; I was referring to the images in the linked tweet though which has the Drakens set at different angles by angling the wing tips differently.

    Pretty sure there's only one adapter; it just attaches to the foldable section of the wings and the wings themselves are at different angles. From the placeholder images Bandai's shown on their site the clips appear to connect to the hardpoints on the outer wing sections; still easily printable but I'm expecting we'll get a better hold than just friction.

    Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    How would you say Hobby master compares in general? I've picked up a few HM planes but my only Century wings plane is a 1/72 SR-71 and the quality isn't quite to the same level (plane itself I fine but the stand is barely enough for that much weight; to the point that anytime I touch it I'm afraid it's going to snap it flexes so much) so I've been hesitant to pick up any more.

    If you could give me the dimensions for the pivot (Cleared diameter needed for mating your stock parts, thickness, and the diameter of the clearance hole for the screw) so I can make sure my design will be compatible with the your arm/elbow pieces I'd appreciate it. I'll probably do a 3D printed "casting" though shapeways then get the mating surfaces finish machined; should be easier for my brother in law to squeeze in than hogging it out of stock.

    Awesome; as long as it can wait till the 27 I should be good.

    Anyone know when AmiAmi's likely to request payment on the 31S preorder and how long they give you to pay?

    YetiStand Alpha.

    @ChaoticYeti I got the plane in and measured the stand for the adapter dimensions; is it possible to get an adapter made in metal? The size it needs to be just wouldn't support any load in plastic. (Anything below the break line I have shown can be whatever is needed to facilitate the pivot; the face of the pivot should be parallel to the long side of the tab.) The plane weighs ~1-2Lbs and any bank would put all of the stress across the .0625" tab with no good way to pick up another surface on the cradle and spread the load. I just don't see plastic working in that situation. If you have any issues making it in metal I'll still get a couple of the custom wall brackets and some of your stock parts but I'll see if I can get my brother in law to machine the adapter.

    Yeah, only 1 pivot. Anything on the other side would end up in my coworker's cube.

    F-14A for now; I'm actually starting to think that if the mount works out I might get 2 and order a MiG or Sukhoi for a dogfight scene. I've already crammed the top of my computer with a P-51D, T-38, F-15, and F/A-18E; I was originally hoping the -14 would fit there but there's nowhere near enough room.

    The wall measured at 2.1 inches. I did a rough sketch of what I was thinking for the mounting bracket (really wish there was a usable CAD application on android). I'd think something like that should provide enough stability to keep the mount from twisting off the wall. For the adapter to attach the plane I'm still waiting on the one I'd want to use this with to arrive so I don't know what I need on that end yet.
