    New Macross TV Series in 2018

    I'm an old fan as well. I watched it in '84.

    New Macross TV Series in 2018

    It's all greed, because fans get no joy out of these, and it's really all a bunch of spoon fed stuff that nobody liked, EVER! Sorry to say, but do you have any idea how ridiculous and ignorant this sounds? I guess if you dont know the trends or Delta's popularity, it'd go over your head, but you do realize that there's more than one company involved in these productions, and no, it is not all to 0ay for filming. You may want to think a little more before such a fallible comment. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but if you don't like what has been coming out, it's because it is not made for you. It's not madd for the West, or most of our demographic. We aren't even considered on what should be considered, and I'm glad. If we left it up to most here, it would be some gritty war drama with no character and soulless.

    I'll let you know when I start them and post pics as I do them.

    M "The Ride" : VF-1X++ custom

    Very interesting. That's a great idea. I'm going to be redesigning those two top pieces so they look a little more accurate to the images of the MtR books. I think that's about all I want go change at this point.

    What back piece are you referring to?

    MΔ - VF-9

    Thanks. I just scribed the lines again after several bouts of paint and sanding, snd it's quite smooth. I may do one more coat before it is how it's supposed to be. Thanks. I was actually quite surprised how clear it came out. I was expecting to need to do a lot more work, but it is not bad right out the mold, and it fits perfectly. This clear resin is pretty strong, too, so in a few more days, it'll be completely cured. I only used the back as the demos portion, so theres no real cleanup. I'm rather proud of this set. One of my finest works.

    The canopy came out exactly as 8 wanted it. I can't be happier with the final result. Apparently it's quite clear. It really doesn't need any sanding or buffing.

    If I had the money, I'd want that 1/1 Sheryl. That said, the $18K price tage (which I think is for both) is astronomical. I am expecting a large sum of money soon, so maybe. It depends on when that comes though. Plus the shipping, Yeah, not cheap.

    That actually looks quite good. That material is nice and sturdy, and if I could get it completely clear, I'd just use it. I did notice that even after using a liquid polish, the material still had what looks like tiny ripples underneath the polished surface. it's probably just a part of the printed resin's characteristics, so I didn't want to go all out trying to fix that if it cannot be. I put the clear gloss coat over it last night, and it's shinier, so today after work, I'll be making the first part of mold. I need to work on a way to make it so that there are no seem lines, but can easily come out and I think I have a way to get a great recast. I'll show you once it's done, as the process will take me into later this week to finish, and I want a full cure time in the mold. Clear resin takes about 3-4 days at least to fully cure, especially if it is thin.

    Except China uses one that isn't used by anyone else. I've had to work with a couple companies that got stuck with having to deal with this issue. It's some sort of proprietary program from what I understand, and isn't just a matter of converting. In any case, it's getting way off topic. I got some of the parts 9ver the weekend. First thing was buffing the canopy. Because the canopy comes foggy no matter what, I used a liquid buffer and a microfiber cloth to smooth it out, followed by clear coat. I'm going to recast it so that it'll be crystal clear. Thankfully, it is quite thick, so once it cures as a copy, it will be a good, solid piece, and look as clear as a toy manufactured part.

    The problem, and I don't know if this has been resolved or if they even send these out for manufacturing, is that if they're done in China, what happens is that the original CAD is usually redone in their own specific CAD language, then it is manufactured. So any sort of design, if they still manufacture in China, is broken down and redone anyways. I wish they would do something like make unassembled kits still. It'd be cool to see some of the obscure designs. I still long for a VA-3 Invader.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    So, all I'm missing now is the Kai version, and I'm simply not in a rush for it, or really anything, so I can now save up, wait, til the armor set goes up. Damn

    That pew pewer is pretty unique in the picture of the blue VF-9. While I'm not the biggest fan of the GERWALK mode, I love that it has attributes that make it stand out different from what we usually see, such as the swivel cockpit. Design wise, it does look like one of the most stable designs, with everything in the center and situated below the wings. Yes, that's it. I don't remember how much I wrote of it, but it's a long process of fill and sand. There is a putty method, too, but that one requires a little more thought in execution. I usually dilute the putty and then rub it into the parts. You have to be careful to not fill in panel lines either, as those will quickly disappear if not careful. I usually just fill with paint using Model Master fine white primer, then the last coat or two with Tamiya grey primer so I can see and observe where I need a bit more paint, or where I need to fix things. It's costly though, too, but this project is worth it.
