  1. I tried that first, but there wasn't enough room inside, I had to drill 3mm holes - put magnet and paint over. Mostly left over from other kits. Also I usually get from here https://hlj.com/search/go?p=KK&srid=S1-4IADP&lbc=hobbylink&ts=custom&pw=decal&uid=322553694&isort=score&view=grid&w=Hiq Decal&rk=2 Thank you! Thanks Thank you
  2. Here is final with painted + Decal + light weathering + minor cable work. Now all secured with screws Roughly 1/100 scale - Macross Movie version Launch Arm with partial Base - 3D printed It turns out it can hold the Valkyrie just fine. I left it over a day and it's still there. I'm not sure if it's earthquake safe in Bay area - Probably not. Better safe than sorry -_-; I guess I'll put it up on the clamps occasionally. Also, I might make more with some revision for other Hi-Metal-R Valkyries when I have time later. Edit @ Major Tom - Sorry I just saw it after new posting. That's a great build as usual from wm cheng. It's actually tougher when the model is smaller and heavier. You gotta hold more weight with smaller magnet

    1/6 VF-1 Valkyrie cockpit speaker

    I got reply from Kids Logic staff that the figure will be shipped around end of January. It would be best to get them shipped out before Feb. 4-5th - which is Lunar New Year
  4. I guess that serves the purpose for now! I don't know Maybe bigger magnet? Thicker support arm? More support arms? Top-down hanger (instead of sideways?) But all of the above will go beyond what I originally aimed for and will look like this (Again, which is not bad as a product) Thanks! It's not done yet thou. Gotta paint it
  5. finally got to test the magnet before the New Years Day. It's holding up, but I wouldn't display it this way. It seems too risky. So, it's for photo shoot only.. Happy New Years Macrossworld members!

    1/6 VF-1 Valkyrie cockpit speaker

    Nothing yet. I'll wait until holiday break is over and contact them early next year.
  7. I traced the shape from original concept art. I'm pretty sure it's correct. However, overall size-wise, it's scaled down to fit in printable volume. Maybe that's giving you the illusion
  8. What's bothering you on the signal?
  9. Finally got some time to re-work on parts design. Also found VF-1A Super Valkyrie in the box. Now I was able to actually measure the parts for accuracy. Now scaled up clamp parts - enough to put the magnets in. Hopefully 5 will hold it.
  10. LOL! Thanks for saying. I'm working on over-sizing parts so that I can use magnets. Also I got a crazy idea, but not sure if it's gonna work. need some thinking...

    Hi-Metal R

    Should have waited!! Ah well. got 1 from Amiami & CDJ. Good night guys...
  12. Originally that was part of the plan. the center circle was made for either attachment part connector or possible magnet, Like I mentioned, I realized it came out smaller than I thought (although it's in correct scale)
  13. 1/72 would be a plastic model? Pictures would be inspiring
  14. I've been using Neodynum magnets since 2008, so I know what it can hold. The claws aren't big enough for them in this scale. Maybe I can use magnets if I make oversized clamps, but again the parts material and size need to be tested multiple times. Thanks for the help. I'm using my home printer, so it's just me fiddling with different tries. Not worrying too much about the cost. Just having fun
  15. Oh, These Valkyries are light, but not light enough to be held with magnet. I'm thinking about making 2 different versions now. One with correct scale + articulated (poseable) - just decoration base Another one with oversized Clamps that has attachment for the connector - something I can actually connect it and display Stay tuned now. Need some design tweaks.
