    Macross figures

    I just purchased A and B, and will probably get the C version when I'm in Japan next year in June, but I think A and B are different enough to get the feel of the sculpt well enough. I can't wait until they show up. I'm kind of a huge Sheryl collector, so oddly, for that character, I go a bit out of the way.

    Heres how the dye came out. Mind you, I used putty on spots, so those are the off color sections, but it does work.

    Got a set already. Just waiting for shipping. They are all well sculpted, but I'm interested in this as well...

    I just got the gun pod and landing gear, along with v.4 of the canard. I must say, I'm very happy with the gunpod. The fact that the handle collapses and the fin collapses is really great. I ordered it in black professional, and it looks ready to go right away, but I just primed it so that I can do cleanup on some parts. I'm looking forward to this being the first part I finish of this kit. I did manage to get some of my resin dyes and managed to mix a red with warm water. I soaked a couple of the WSF parts in it, and they seem to be a solid red color (minus parts I patched and smoothed out. I think this might be something to look into if you buy the WSF parts. I'm going to try this with some of the other WSF parts I have and just sand them before putting them in a dye. If this works, this may be the way I go. The dye I used is called So Strong, which can be bought through Smooth-On. They have red, black, yellow, brown, and all sorts of others. I'm going to test this out longer.

    Macross The First inspired VF-1A

    Looks great, man. Your painting skills are on point. A long time ago, this inspired me to do a Yamato unassembled kit combining the Alaska base green, and the MtF style color scheme. I never started, but this brings it back to life for me. Again, great job.

    There is metal printing available through Shapeways, but that is probably something I'd stay away from. It really doesn't need it, save for the screws and pins.

    I started on the first coat of yellow for the MtR version, and so far, it seems to be a good idea. This is just on the white prints, and not the grey version. I have a feeling that the grey won't work as well, due to the fact that it's much smoother, but I haven't tried it yet. For the white printed parts (what used to be WSF), it helps a lot with worrying about scratching the paint and seeing the under coat, or the white of the material. I did do my first sanding of it after the paint set, and it retained a lot of the yellow color, which means that the paint is under the surface, still retaining the desired color. For the paint, I used an acrylic paint, and thinned it out to about 40%. This helped it to coat nice and thin, and it's consistency is thin enough to get it well under the top layer of the material. I'll get a pic up tonight at some point. BTW, Xigfrid, are those magnets on the wings? Do you have a link for them?

    I was going to start this over the weekend. Thanks so much for this. I'm trying to work on fitting certain pieces together now, so as long as I can get it together, I'll be getting these done soon. I mixed my yellow together with a hint of orange, and so I have the tint that's needed, along with the red and the rest of the colors.

    There are 3 versions. I'm hoping to get them all, but as of now, they seem quite pricey.

    FEXTHOBBY Macross Line up

    Has Fext given any indication that they've reached the 600 count yet?

    I was going to try today, but I have a lot of sleep to catch up on, and I'm not feeling that great, so I'll try to start tomorrow. I am having one helluva time with the wings though. Maybe I'm just not prepping them right? I may need to order them again to try those again.

    With the set I have now, I'm going to try a new method of paint application. Because this material is quite sponge-like, I'm not going to apply a primer. I'm going to use several layers of the color I want to let that soak into the crevices. After a few times of paint/sand, I should have a solid color I don't have to worry about scratching completely off, and should be under the top most layer. At least that's my hope. I'm doing the Macross the Ride yellow valk, as I'm not a big fan of the prototype color, and the Miriya version, well, I just have too many Miriya versions of things already. I may do that one if I do a second version, but for now, MtR is my go to for this. So, a loud yellow, red, and I should have that decal done in a couple weeks.

    Isn't Shapeways getting the Stratasys J750 color printer, that can print up to 500,000 colors? Depending on the durability of that plastic, you may need to consider putting color on these parts.

    The Ranka version looks quite well, while I do not like the look of the Sheryl. I have the Sheryl version, and it's not a good face sculpt by any means.

    That was what I needed. The piece that has 3 holes, only had 2. Now I can continue. Thanks for your help.
