    Delivery times have been terrible ever since the Protoculture Parcel Service ceased operations 500,000 cycles ago.

    LOL! Clearly not "too expensive" and "labor intensive" for the cheaper HMR line.
  3. Fantastic! Now can they pull the XL Enterprise-A off the market and release a non-****ed up version?
  4. Who's buying this thing? I'm on the fence as I don't know if it's worth mixing it up with my Yeti stands.

    Looks great. Can't wait till it comes out.

    Please. If small time operations like Yamato and Arcadia can do it, then Bandai can too.
  7. That's clearly the Arcadia YF-19 with the wing sweep and tinted canopy.

    No offense. I say that all the time. It's a Futurama reference. Are there issues with using lacquers directly onto die cast parts? I used a coat of primer before painting.

    Thanks! Good to know. Though it's the rear doors that are the real pain, with their shape and close positioning to the gears.
  10. Oh, sure you can. Anyone can. Only need a bit of practice, is all.

    BANDAI DX YF-19!!

    It hurts seeing a break like that, and I see breaks like that all the time on humans.

    Nope. What do I look like,? A man who's not lazy? Masked & sprayed. Masking the landing gear bay is the most onerous part. If there was a way to take it apart and remove just the landing gear for painting, that would make the whole thing so much easier. At least on the DX VF-1J you can remove the bay doors completely, which makes it easier to mask than other valks where the doors are not removable. Which is why I haven't started on the 25G or RVF. Just thinking of those doors makes me balk.

    Don't remember that part, but there's still plenty of black around the text, and few mortals are so good with a Q-tip and solvent that they can perfectly remove text and not anything around or underneath it. Which was the point.

    Primer and lacquer paint. It takes a lot to fully coat the die cast.
