    Macross 1/72 Scale Complete List

    They look like the upgraded parts from the super/strike battroid...

    Max Factory 1/20(!) VF-1S/A Hikaru

    Haha Troll But really they have phoned this one in.

    Nope no it doesn't. Sure there is a bit of random piping to tart up the wheel well but look at those gear door attachment points! Hasegawa do that on their 1/72 scale kits. And that gear leg is plain as Jane. No aircraft modeler would put up with that lack of detail for the price they are asking.

    Looking for PE upgrades for 1/48 Hawegawa YF-19 and VF1S/A

    Looking for PE upgrades for 1/48 Hawegawa YF-19 and VF1S/A

    There was a thread rolling around on the boards here somewhere regarding an all PE VF-1 Skeleton that Hasegawa displayed at one of the trade shows. Someone threw some shade at Jasmine for ripping off the design for the Jasmine 1/72 scale cutaway VF-1. But it turns out that Jasmine designed the Hasegawa display item. Hasegawa decided to not pursue the design so Jasmine released it. It could be that there is some understanding between Jasmine and Hasegawa regarding competing products since Hase sell their own PE. This is all conjecture of course. At one point I considered fronting for an entire run and selling them here but that will have to come later. Cheers, Brett

    Valkyrie Canopy Masks - New sets in the works!

    G'day lads, just thought I'd pop in and let you guys know that we are are looking at producing a line of canopy masks for the Hasegawa 1/72 and 1/48 Valks (at least to start with). Personally I could never get those decals they give you work without looking like a huge mess, so I always masked and painted by canopies which is a huge PITA. While prototyping I can say that masking up now only takes a few minutes before you're back in action. Anyway let me know if you are interested or if you have any input/suggestions or goo and bad experience with canopy masking sets. EDIT: These are starting to become available now so I'll list details here in the first post so they are easy to find. So far we have the following sets available (or will be soon): 1/48 scale VF-1A/J/S DYRL(Hasegawa canopy part N -1) - AUD$8.25 each. 1/72 scale VF-1A/J/S (Hasegawa) - AUD$5.50each. All orders include postage within Australia. International orders add a flat AUD $3.00 for postage. I can be PM'd here or via email here. Cheers, Brett

    Valkyrie Canopy Masks - New sets in the works!

    Update: The 1/48 TV style canopy (part N-8) mask set cutting file is complete as is the 1/72 scale VF-1D. The sets themselves won't be available for a few weeks yet as I juggle things between work which has been busy. I am thinking of doing the VF-4 next but are there any suggestions for what should be next after that? Cheers, Brett

    I think from a space and price point tgat is much more acceptable. What's the process to order selective sprues? Good work on the kit so far too Ted, those pictures are fantastic as well, your photographic skills are top notch! Cheers, Brett

    Max Factory 1/20(!) VF-1S/A Hikaru

    Exactly like that! Alhough it looks like the parts breakdown of the nose section will prohibit releasing just those as a stand alone kit. Which sprues are needed for it and is it possible to just order those? I saw prices listed on the instructions. Its a grest looking kit and I am very jealous Ted Cheers, Brett

    Max Factory 1/20(!) VF-1S/A Hikaru

    Unfortunately this is way to big for me. Ironically making it's most attractive feature its biggest drawback. It would be great if they pulled a Wingnut Wings and offered just the cockpit section Cheers, Brett

    BTW as far as I know no one has been with GST by Australian Border Force. They just don't have the infrastructure to support collection.

    Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Thanks Arbit! Zoom away! It couldn't be any worse than the judges at last weekend's model show. And no I didn't pick up and places as there are far too many flaws. I only entered for a laugh. Yep 63mm to the top of the deployed tail fins. Thanks dude! It did take a while. I may do another kit in the future in a similar pattern but different colours. Cheers, Brett

    Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Great work guys! And I am especially loving the 1/48 VF-1s. I can tell you what isn't on my workbench any more...this VF-0B! Finally finished two years after I started it. Rubbish pictures but better ones will have to wait until after I move cities. So glad it is finished so that I can move onto the next shelf queen! Cheers, Brett

    Hello to all fellow builders

    Welcome aboard Jagimis! I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with as you have picked some great kits to start out with. Makenaurenyou checknout WM Cheng's step by step builds (sticky'd in the workbench forum) as they are great resources. Hexworks in 1/72 scale but the techniques are universal. Cheers, Brett

    What will Hasegawa do next?

    They do keep repopping it though so it must be popular enough. I'd say if we hadn't of had macross delta we would have had more kits in 1/48. By all accounts Hasegawa are a pretty small company so they are probably near max rate of development. - Brett

    1/100 Gnerl recast

    Wow you did a great job considering the rubbish casting quality! I hope you didn't pay more than $10 for it otherwise you have been ripped off. Is the blue colour a custom scheme? BTW did you know that both Plastic Cretins (Exo on the boards) and I both produce Gnerl kits that haven't been ripped off somebody else's work and are cast super clean? -Brett
