    Wow, all these look great. Great work, Xigfrid. That is looking like it was a toy that you bought. Have you tried transforming it into Battroid with the paint on it? If so, how does it hold up?

    I'm still wanting to get to my kit to build it, but I'm in need of finishing two other kits I'm currently working on. The designer is Xigfrid, so he'd be the one to do that. From what I know, it hasn't been redone yet, but perhaps in due time.
  3. I'll put them up. I'm gonna recast it first. I get these done in their hi definitely material, so it doesn't need a lot of work, but its brittle.
  4. It took me long enough! But I finally got a set of the lead edge wing verniers. I wanted them to look a little more close to the MtR version! So I started these a couple months ago. I'll be smoothing these out and recasting them. So far! The fit the way they should. Sadly! I didn't work in any snap fit! So as of now! It's a glue on only! It may change.

    It's been awhile since I worked on this project. I've been trying to make sure I get enough paint to mix the right shade so I don't have an issue of needing to remix. I'm also going to use lacquer paint, as it's quite strong, and should survive the transformations a bit better. I did start with priming pieces in a white, but only because the final color is a lighter color, and using grey, which I normally use, would make the yellow shade too dark. I am using a grey primer for the red and darker parts, but yeah, those are great tips. This thing is a bit tough to paint before assembly, especially the wings. I can never get them to sit properly as they're supposed to, and with painting them, that only makes it much harder.
  6. Do they fold ok in battroid? I had to go with the originals because they weren't folding well in battroid. I tried to use them, but I want to make sure they collapse properly.
  7. Looks great. Are those the modified wings, or did you customize them yourself using the originals?
  8. That's the main idea. I will try to make a clip into the upper intake so that it provides some stability, but I'll start drafting it out this weekend. Between work and school, I haven't as much time as I used to.
  9. Nice set of decals. I am still needing to make those back ailerons. I am hoping to soon be able to get back into redesigning the upper verniers that lead to the wings. I've been so busy, but I hope I can do this soon.
  10. Well, the other thing is, I do want to frame a couple posters, but then, what do I do with the rest? I guess I can maybe come up with a way to make an interchangeable frame, but gah, so many and never enough space. I think my wife would kill me if I decided to put every poster up on every wall (and ceilings, too).
  11. I started getting into collection other posters that weren't B2-A2, but at this point, I decided to stop. Due to the fact that most of it is in books and easily be seen without having to shell out a wad of cash, I've decided to stick to my original poster sizes I started off with. Now, that doesn't mean I won't jump at the chance for extremely rare ones, but I think most of the ones I've wanted out of those sizes are already acquired. I'm still looking for a few that I really want in B2 size, but having a decently large size of them already, I'm in no rush anymore. The last one I got that was of the rarer breed, was a B2 of Macross Delta that was more of a promo poster given at Wonderfest in either late 2015, or winter 2016. I had Kawamori sign it at AX 2016, and when he saw it, he was quite surprised and commented on how he was happy to see people here interested in the show (it was airing at the time). I should post it, but I'd have to go into a room full of collectible stuff to find it. I'll get it out eventually.

    I'm building the one I have at a snail's pace. Mostly to make sure that what I do paint, stays painted, but the parts I have put together work very well, and seem quite solid. I've actually mixed the professional plastic with some of the WSF stuff, and it seems to work well. Where I need more detail, the Professional, and where I know I'll be moving a lot of parts, the WSF. I have to find where I put the gun though. I was finished with that part.

    That looks great. Is that a paint you put on it, or is it a dye? I looks very uniform throughout the parts. I can't wait to see an update on your work. I started doing a lacquer primer on all the parts. Unfortunately, the dye didn't work as well as I wanted it to, so I just decided to sand the parts a little thinner, and then focus on a really good paint job free (as much as possible) of friction. I did decide to do the MtR version, although, still not at 100%. I'm not big on the character who pilots it in the series, and because I don't know it, I'm not sure yet. Maybe I'll do a second version, one with the early VF-9 Cutlas grey color. I had to order yellow and orange lacquer paint so I can mix and then pain the yellow and the red parts, so when that comes in, I'll start on the actual painting. Until then, just got a bunch of parts heavily coated in white primer to sand down and smooth out over several times. So far, the cockpit, and the leg section and head are ready for the colored paint. No pics at this time.
  14. I guess I'll have to check mine tonight. Is it a pin in there, or a screw? If it is a pin, if it can be removed, a slight sanding of the pin with an 800 grit sandpaper may fix it. If it is knurled pins, that will tell you right away what needs to be done. I only transformed mine once, and it has been in the box since then, so it should be good (fingers crossed).

    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.
