  1. Hi-Metal R

    Ahem! Tomahawk please, I need like 10.
  2. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    Yeah, I looked at the cost of the normal release, and decided to jump on a sealed ¥14,000 missile set at Mandarake instead. I'll just set those up as normal ones, and keep my existing missile set with the missiles.

    I've got a Luca with the armored parts from the VF-171EX Cannon Fodder on it, they work fine, even with the special stand. Luca's 171EX also comes with a second set of wings with hardpoints, so you can get whichever armored part set you want. Jungle's even got a 171EC CF set right now (comes with the reaction and dimension eater missiles).

    Seconded, the Regult and Glaug are some of the best HMR figures, along with the Desdroids.
  5. Bandai DX VF-31

    Those are next Well, after I finish the weapon pylon gun mount.
  6. Bandai DX VF-31

    Shameless plug: 1/60 scaled missile pod for the VF-31.
  7. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    I believe it's in June.
  8. Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    I vote for a VF-0 one, in honor of the upcoming VF-0S premium.
  9. WIP: Alternate Weapons Pods for VF-31

    Looks like the 1/60 missile doors won't print in High-Def Acrylate as a combined model, but they will print individually (I got one as a test-print).

    Lovely gif of my wallet's reaction to the premium SDF-1 I have on order.
  11. Macross figures

    Here's where I got a copy of the Armored figure from: https://plamoya.com/en/excellent-model-macross-frontier-klan-klang-armored-ver-pvc-figu-p-24005.html They've raised the price a bit since I got it though. [edit] Looks like it's about the same price as Ebay. You could use that 15% off coupon.

    If you're looking for a Klan Klang figure, there's only one real option: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10119516 If you can find one, that is.

    Looks good, glad it fits properly between the legs in fighter mode, that was a bit of a toss-up since it's based on the DX version and downscaled. I've actually had pretty good luck with drilling in FUD, just need to keep backing the drill out to clear the chips. My design ought to have thru holes everywhere with relief for the material to come out on the other end, which also should help. As to the wing mount, you're correct, it's to just have a bracket to put the gun on one of the hardpoints. Here's the two possibilities I'm thinking of: Leaning to the first one a bit.

    You should absolutely grab some HMR Desdroids and Regults/Glaugs if you like non-transforming Macross stuff. The non-transforming stuff is just amazing, I've got a full shelf of it.

    I've personally had some luck shaving the FUD with a hobby knife, it's definitely brittle though. As to the doors, if you can get a drill and drill-out the holes a bit, it might be made to work. Unfortunately the doors are quire thin, even at 1/60 scale, so the hinges had to be really small shaft. McMaster Carr does offer hardened steel shafts down to 0.5mm diameter, the hard part is finding a drill that small. I'll go back and tweak the hole on the 1/72 model for a 3mm shaft sometime this week, then it's on to making a clip to hold the VF-31s gun on one of the wing hardpoints. I'm thinking I'll mount it with the grip up, so the shell can slide forward into firing mode. Still unsure if I want it flush with the grip behind the wing, or dropped down a little so the grip can fit under.
