    Apologies and free stuff!

    Took me a bit longer than planned, but these are starting to be posted now. Good luck all.

    Just to be clear, I've had a lot of enquiries and the offer is now closed, thanks for all your PMs! I'll be shipping these off hopefully this coming weekend.

    Thanks, and thanks to all those that messaged me. I think that's 10 done, so no more requests, and thank you for your interest. I'll be sending them out at the end of next week, probably take a couple of weeks to get to you via snail-mail (I'm not in USA). Between now and last time I was on the forum, I have been doing a Bachelor of Engineering (Mechatronics) and building real-world robots and working on a low-orbit satellite which is now circling the planet a couple of times a day. So I haven't had much time for modeling between Djykstra's Algorithm and orbital decay calculations... but I'm hoping to set aside a little time over the Christmas break, so who knows!

    Apologies and free stuff!

    Hey all, it's been awhile. Last time I was here I was running a side business called Studio StarForge, selling some pilot sets for Hasegawa valks. Everything was going well until I got a very nasty communication from Lucasfilm lawyers due to a Star Wars model I was selling, and I basically had to close shop immediately - and I couldn't be seen to be doing ANY 'business'. I think a few of you were caught up in unfulfilled orders - all of which I believe I refunded. Anyways, a long story short, a lot of life changes happened during that time as well, it was a perfect storm. I feel pretty bad for abandoning a few people. I was looking at my stock (which I still have some of) and although I don't want to start selling Macross stuff again, I do want to pay back the community which was so awesome to be a part of. The first 10 people who message me on MacrossWorld will receive a free pilot set - 1/72 resin pilots designed to fit into the Hasegawa Valk kits. This is not a scam, those who remember me will recall my builds, I just want to fix a little of what has being weighing on my mind for some time. Just send me your postal address and I'll post here when 10 is full, no strings, nothing else, just a freebie for fellow modelling junkies. EDIT: OFFER IS NOW CLOSED, THANKS FOR YOUR MESSAGES!

    Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Reno that had come up very nicely. That undercoat panel lining looks nice and restrained.
  6. Why not just go whole hog while we are at it....

    Custom VF-24A

    That's very nicely done! Like the colours as well.

    The LATEST Paint Experiment - VF-0S 1/72 Hasegawa

    Beautiful work. For me there's little more satisfying in modelling as when you finally - finally - pull the masking tape off a complex masking job. I once had a model in masking for a couple of weeks. Every two days I would be adding more panels, removing part, then masking again just to spray another tint... and finally, finally be able to remove everything was a blessed relief.

    VF-1 Atmospheric-Escape Booster

    Take a look at my signature to see the Moscato one in action. Having said that, your engine nozzles look good, but the detail on main body looks quite a lot thicker. Would love to see some more pics of this in profile, etc.

    New from Hasegawa 1/48 Weapons and 1/72Gerwalk

    Im thinking a hi-res image of that box art would make a great desktop image!
  11. Please look at a list of Kershner's and Abrams credits in comparison. JJ is a powerhouse, even if many of his works could be classified as 'misses'. Let's not forget that Kershner was also responsible for Never Say Never Again, and Robocop 2.

    This was in the news a couple of years ago. As I am interested in the tech, I remember this well: http://www.cnet.com/news/google-style-glasses-led-to-attack-in-mcdonalds-professor-says/

    The MW Automotive Thread 5.0 GT

    *Fast Five* is an amazing movie for many reasons. It's my favourite of the franchise and I was one of those in the seats for the first one with my eyes bugging out of my head. I cannot wait to see this. My only problem with this awesome trailer is that Lucas Black is not in it and I was hoping he'd be a bit more involved. I really enjoyed Tokyo Drift! Perhaps he gets 'revealed' later on....
  14. I must be the only person who really enjoyed Terminator: Salvation. Yes, the end was a bit messy but I really enjoyed the ride until we go there, and the first sequence where the humans infiltrate the machine's base, with Connor only just escaping from that chopper was very cool.
