  1. Arcadia 1/60 VF-0S Premium Finish

    Looks like NY is claiming ¥44,540 with SAL shipping. Throws money at screen
  2. Arcadia 1/60 VF-0S Premium Finish

    This is where I'm at. I want one, the Premium one is MSRP ¥38,800 vs the ¥34,800 that the original kit was. Arcadia's only charging like $35 more. When looking at the price on getting a first-run VF-0s, the premium seems like the obvious choice.
  3. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Hey, pretty sure that's the only VF-171 kit that exists. Well, aside from a limited run resin kit apparently.
  4. Whats next for Arcadia?

    They might be basing the premium extra charge on what the actual extra costs are. If there's not much extra Tampo, then the premium wouldn't cost too much more to produce.
  5. WIP: Alternate Weapons Pods for VF-31

    I just looked, and there is apparently a tick box in the stl options to save the assembly as a single file, rather than each part individually.

    They probably glued a driver to the screw head and then popped it off with UV, acetone, or heat. Might be able to use museum wax and then freeze it so the wax hardens and pops off?

    Frosted Extreme Detail is already available, I had my missile doors printed that way since it was less than $0.50 more per part.
  8. Bandai DX VF-31

    From NY? I've had stuff "in preparation" for 2 weeks before.
  9. VF-25 renewal fold booster adapter

    If you're printing, the minimum material thickness and panel lines really depend on material/machine resolution. From Shapeways: I'd suggest 2mm if you're planning to use strong+flexible, and the panel lines won't show unless you go to Frosted (Ultra/Extreme) Detail or Hi-def Acrylate.

    Insert part is an assembly command rather than a part command. The combination has to happen at a part level to be in a single stl file. [edit] Found the command sequence: http://help.solidworks.com/2017/english/solidworks/sldworks/t_creating_a_joined_part.htm
  11. Is Kurama Shop Hobbysite/bandaionline.com legit?

    At least on the US side, it only lists the arrival at inward office of exchange after it makes it through customs. Best to check the Australian postal service's tracking.

    I want my tomahawk, going to buy a few of those. It's my favorite desdroid from original macross.
  13. WIP: Alternate Weapons Pods for VF-31

    The cannons are next on my list, but I have no plans to do the radome, since Bandai will probably get to Chuck's VF-31 eventually.
  14. WIP: Alternate Weapons Pods for VF-31

    The issue is that in Solidworks I'd have to have all the parts present inside a single part file, rather than in an assembly, any time I save an assembly to stl it saves the individual parts instead. Haven't figured out how to import bodies into an existing part file yet. Think of it like an engine limitation, Solidworks treats every body as an individual part and saves them all separately.

    Looking good, the speaker detail came out very nicely. What gap size did you design in? I've been using 0.1mm as a base, but it should vary (in more complex assemblies) by the number of components connecting the 2 parts and what material is used. Also I wish Solidworks made it easy to combine multiple parts into one STL file (maybe I should import to sketchup for that). I had to separate everything out since it's non-trivial to attach them together with runners for printing.
