Hi guys, I have been busy last days (couple months... in fact) with a very challenging design from Macross Delta: the VF-9, aka Cutlass. This is a small fighter designed to support the VF-1 in mission. Guess what ? It is even shorter than a VF-1. I tried my best to make a great looking transforming toy in all three modes for the 1:60 scale, printable in WSF (SLS nylon powder). So far, I am pretty confident that I will soon have something printable. The battroid mode should have sufficient articulation to compare with an Arcadia VF-1, I just hope all the joints will be tight enough. Assembly Manual is now available here SEPTEMBER 2108 UPDATE Transformation video is ready at youtube: https://youtu.be/DNtGSKQydVo Link to the upcoming addons and upgrades for my VF-9: https://www.shapeways.com/shops/xigfrid3dshop?section=VF-9+addons&s=0 This section will contain the options and upgrades available for the VF-9 such as: -optional landing gears -display adpaters -Nose fins (version 3) -set of spare parts -future Gunpod AUGUST 2108 UPDATE Link to download the 3D printed parts: https://www.shapeways.com/shops/xigfrid3dshop?section=VF-9&s=0 NB: The removable Wheels, Display stand adapters are optional. The Canopy can be printed in Smooth Detail Plastic and sanded to be so-so clear, it should be printed by a resin printer in clear resin and it will be clearer and stronger. I recommend US residents to contact EXO, member of this forum also known as Plastic Cretins on Facebook, who can print in clear resin the following parts. You can PM me for his email too. -clear Canopy for 5$ -female pilot 2$ -male pilot 2$ -battroid head 2$. For other countries you can try www.3dhubs.com. And you will need the STL 3D file of my VF-9 canopy. My absolute short list recommended tools: -Modeling Sprue cutter: cut the sprues effortlessly in seconds -Modelcraft knife equipped with a "rounded blade" (like this one) : best blade shape to remove the remaining plastic from sprues in 1 cut, instead of a lot of sanding and buffing -Pin Vise with 1mm drill bit : just to make sure that the pre-drilled holes for the screws and pins are perfectly clean. -strong, yet small screwdriver:sometimes I can use tiny places to insert the screws, so the screwdriver shaft should be 3-4mm diameter max (magnetized preferably!) -flat plier to insert the pins -6-steps nail buffer : I use this to gently remove the excess of material if some parts don't sit flush A few pictures !

Hey there, everyone. I just finished my newest Macross-themed artwork. Yes, once again it is the M3 Milia and VF-9 Cutlass. I just *can't* seem to stop drawing these two together! As always, you can check out the image below, but clicking on the link helps my website's traffic stats. http://wp.me/p277FG-1fQ
