    In total, I believe it is 12 of various sizes. If you buy a decent number of 1mmx20mm pins, you can always cut down those to make proper sizes, but you do need (I believe) 2 1mmx20mm pins, a a few 12mm, maybe 4 10mm, and smaller from there. Most of them are in the landing gear. You also need 1.7x6mm self tapping round head screws, and 1.7x8mm of the same type.

    No, I used Mr Color Super Metallic 206 Chrome Silver under Mr Color 47 gloss clear red. Then I used UV flat to flatten it out. It may be my camera and the light of the lamp. In natural light, it comes out much more red. Thanks. I thinned the heck out of the paints, then had to do a few coats and make sure they all came out uniform. Thanks. Much appreciated. I actually learned quite a bit about this process in doing it.

    So, I finally finished this project up, and I can't describe how much I love the finish. These pictures don't show how cool the color came out. It's a matte metallic finish, so although it has a metal finish, it can still show panel detail. Im not much of a photographer, so I couldn't get the color to show as well. Anyways, here she is. There's still some small corrections to make, but for the most part, I don't need to do anything major, so I'm happy about that. I'll most likely do that over the next day or so, but I was hoping to highlight the finish, which I can't do as well as it shows with the natural eye.

    Thanks all. I'm really liking the design and functionality of this mecha. Xigfrid, you did an amazing job with this.
  5. Obvious things haven't gotten to the point where we can have things like this, especially in CA, but after a lot of thought, we believe it is just safer to not promote an event that can potentially put people at risk. Also, the registration was reflecting a lot of people being worried as well, so with all that in mind, it was a painful, but right decision. At least we have a good jump on next year, and some great ideas to already move forward with. Dates for next year are being worked on now for next year, and that will be coming very soon.

    Thanks. I was going to go with light weathering with some of the scratches and paint removed, but it's not contrasting too much, so I may just make it look new.

    Finally finished. It took some time, but this is a fun kit to build. Thanks Xigfrid for the advise and the help on some things. I want to start on a Chetenne II next.

    That's a very nice display. I see some that just have collections of items in cases, but when they are put together like this, it makes it exciting.
  9. This happened to just about all of my Milia 639 figures I had purchased, with the exception of one set that I received from Japan about 3 months ago. Maybe that set was in a cooler shop, but the ones that I opened in my closet, which usually stays quite cool, had signs of sweating oils out. Again, these I have only seen in those Yamato figures, and they aren't made of the same plastic that the Yamato/Arcadia valkyries are made of, as is with the DX valkyries. I think you should be OK.

    I bought a micro hand drill and a number of 1mm drill bits that I use to get through them. Those, if you buy more of these or even the 3D printed versions, are crucial to getting pins and screw holes lined up and clean. I would suggest, again if you're going to do other projects that are home designed, to get several micro drills in different sizes. I use the 1mm, but at times for larger 1.5 or 1.8mm holes, using those exact same drill bit.

    Macross figures

    I am feeling the exact same way. I've received several preorder items I wanted this year, but this is the one item I have really been wanting in hand just based on the detail and beauty of it. To wait until end of October, possibly November based on release date, kinda bums me out, but maybe absence makes the heart grow fonder?

    It appears that a notice came out stating that the Sheryl Nome Gorgeous outfit figure has been pushed back to lat October.
  13. Was the stand for this kit only available through subscription?

    Yes, the orange peeling leveled out a lot. I put a clear coat over it, and it now looks uniform. As for the other project down there, it is Xigfrid's Macross Delta Wrokroid, also under construction.
