  1. Macross in the weirdest places

    F-22s and F-35s will launch recoverable gremlins attack drones http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2018/05/11/f-22s-and-f-35s-will-launch-recoverable-gremlins-attack-drones.html
  2. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Completed my 31-A alternate color scheme.
  3. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    I've been on a roll lately with Hasegawa VF-31 kits. Here is my newly completed Delta-5 along with my current work in progress. I guess you can call it a Mirya inspired color scheme.

    Sure. Here are some pics I found on the web. It has a stretchy, plasticy feel to it. It will allow you to make some pretty tight curves depending on which size tape you use. The adhesion is really good. The paint lines look really sharp after removing the tape. No issues with seepage.

    Anyone else attempt the hasegawa vf31-j/c kits? Between matching the blue paint, the masking hell and rage inducing decals around the cockpit area, this is probably the most challenging kit I've tried. That said, my range of experience isn't too broad. Mostly Hase valks. I am enjoying it though and learning a lot from the experience. Oh, and thank you Tamiya for the curved surface masking tape.

    Absolutely gorgeous. Just got mine in the mail as well. Who says you need forward swept wings to be more "heroic"? Kairos is definitely my favorite Delta design. I'll probably turn mine into a red Miriya-ish variant.
  7. Yes, I don't mind properly tagged spoilers as well. I'm actually more interested in the mecha than the story.

    The Wright Immelman VF-22 as well perhaps?
  9. Hasegawa VF-31

    Looks like the Hasegawa VF-31a is being re-released. Reservations are available on Hobby Search! I'm not letting this this one slip away again. http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10472150
  10. Hasegawa VF-31

    Tried to order from them. They ended up canceling my order because they didn't have any in stock. They seem to be one of those sourcing companies -- not sure if that's what you call it, where you order and they see if they can get it for you. Dang.. I totally regret not jumping on the pre order. Didn't think these were going to fly off the shelves like the DXs. This variant is beautiful. Wish they would have used it for the main valk instead of the FSW. FSW is so played out imo.

    Yes, I am curious too. What is a VF-31B?
  12. Walkure Appreciation Thread

    I wonder if they intentionally wanted to make her stand out. In the show Mikumo basically walks into the group and stuns everyone and ultimately is revealed as the "Star Singer".
  13. So, is this just the yf-19 mold with fast packs? Earlier in the thread, it seemed like this was a new mold.
  14. So, like a lot of people, I was introduced to Macross via Robotech growing up. I've seen every other Macross show except SDFM and have never revisited Robotech. So I decided to finally sit down and watch SDFM for the first time. Here are a couple thoughts after getting through ~28 episodes. - I really got a sense of the youthfulness of the characters, particularly Hikaru and Max. The fact that they were supposed to be young came across effectively through the voice actors as opposed to Robotech, where looking back I felt like they were all grown adults who acted like idiots at times. Hikaru is much more likable than "Rick". - I wish story telling was still done this way. It's a bit slower, but I feel more engaged and I feel like I know the characters better. Looking back at Frontier and Delta, they are so fast paced that things barely sink in. - OMG are Max and Milia's voice actors the same ones in M7? Awesome! - Is it me or did the art/animation get really bad towards the middle of the series and then pick up again towards the end? - Protoculture actually makes sense now!! My world is blown! The context finally makes sense for the other Macross shows. Now I'm just anticipating getting the whole "SDF2" mess cleared up. - I'm really appreciating the various mecha in the show, destroids, etc, even the Zentradi stuff. Glaugs rule! I love different variants/schemes for the VF-1. Seems like now the focus is just getting out the next valk evolution and calling it "better" ala the stats treadmill. - Kamjin cracks me up with his reckless ways. As a child, I just remember "Khyron" being a less funny a-hole. That's it for now.
  15. Walkure Appreciation Thread

    So, I've spent the past month listening to all the Walkure albums. As many problems as I have with Delta, the music is not one of them. The fact that the upcoming movies will bring new Walkure music is already a win. I have to say, Junna's voice blows me away. She is is in another class than the others. Not to take away from the rest of the group. Being able to sing, voice act and sing in character at that level is amazing in it's own right. #junnarocksme
