  1. From the album Personal Macross Kits

    Aqueous Macross Color Set 3 Destroid Defender. Aqueous Macross Color box in comparison to 1/72 Defender kit box. The 1/72 Defender was actually my first ever Macross kit, so the paint set makes a nice companion piece.

  2. Vintage Macross paint box contents

    From the album Personal Macross Kits

    Aqueous Macross Color Set 3 Destroid Defender. The three little jars seem like they would barely have enough paint for the job. Oddly enough, each jar has no label or unique marking. You get a sheet of them to apply yourself - 1, 2 & 3. Hopefully you're not color-blind! My sample's base medium had migrated out of the lid of each jar, collecting like dried amber inside the box. One jar is actually tightly glued into the box.

  4. Vintage Macross paint box

    From the album Personal Macross Kits

    Aqueous Macross Color Set 3 Destroid Defender. Vintage water-based acrylic paint set for Imai & Arii Destroid Defender kits. I had wondered about these sets for a long time, so I bought a dried-up but unused set cheaply via eBay.

  5. From the album Personal Macross Kits

    My recent buildup of Arii's "Metalize Custom" 1/100 Destroid Spartan kit. A rubbing with a #2 pencil against the cut-off gate points touched up the lack of chrome in those spots.
  6. Robotech toy Nosjadeul-Ger Box

    From the album My Macross Collection

    Recent case-fresh (!) purchase - Harmony Gold edition of Matchbox Nosjadeul-Ger toy: "Quadrono Batallion" - female Zentraedi, I guess based on the name given to female armor in the Robotech adaptation,since Matchbox didn't make a Q-Rau toy. These aren't so bad, really. They were actually designed & originally tooled-up by a Japanese company. The rendering reminds me a lot of Clover's last few Dunbine toys. The colors of this edition differ a bit from the earlier Matchbox edition, and the later ExoSquad edition.

The colors of this edition differ a bit from the earlier Matchbox edition, and the later ExoSquad edition. Decals are kind of iffy. They don't fit well to the compound curves in many surfaces on the toy. But the joints are nice & tight.

  8. Arii Metalize Spartan 1/100 kit

    From the album Personal Macross Kits

    Vintage kit from Arii's "Metalize" sub-line. These are a unique challenge to build!
  9. From the album Personal Macross Kits

    Some sub-assemblies on the workbench, during my restoration of this vintage buildup.
  10. Imai "Iron" VF1J Kit Instructions

    From the album Personal Macross Kits

    Instructions from a recent score - 1/72 "Iron" series metalized Imai Battroid kit. These were pretty difficult to get back in the 80s. Even though the kit is missing a tiny joint piece, I'm pretty happy with the acquisition! I do intend to build it.
  11. Revell Orbot Presskit Photos

    From the album Personal Macross Kits

    Two 'presskit' photos that Revell used to promote "Orbot", their Robotech kit series redeco/repackage of the Imai 1/72 Variable VF-1D kit. These would be sent to hobby media publishers, provided to sales people and mail-order companies, and used at trade shows.
  12. Beautiful Boxart

    From the album Personal Macross Kits

    A nice example of the beautiful box art Arii created for their kits.
  13. Valk Bits

    From the album Personal Macross Kits

    Parts of the Imai 1/72 VF-1A variable kit, getting their clearcoat.

  15. Arii Metalize Gerwalk

    From the album Personal Macross Kits

    Haven't decided if I'll build this or not. The base kit is terrible. I've got two other Metalize kits that I WILL build, but I didn't much like this design to begin with....
  16. Hello Mars

    From the album My Macross Collection

    Some of my vintage Takatoku mini-sofubi... during the battle of Mars!

  17. The Last Gerwalk

    From the album Personal Macross Kits

    Gerwalk it I recently bought very cheaply from the generous owner of Cosmic Connection, from some of the leftovers from his 1980s mail order company. This is "The Last Gerwalk At Cosmic Connection"...
  18. Cosmic Connection Catalog

    From the album Personal Macross Kits

    This catalog from the 1980s is from Cosmic Connection - the folks who I got so many Macross & other kits from 'back in the day'.
  19. Toynami and Takatoku Sofubi

    From the album My Macross Collection

    Vintage and modern Macross vinyl figures. They make a PERFECT pair! Bravo, Toynami!

    My Takatoku mini vinyl Spartan figure, shot against some rocks at my home, with some photoshop help.

  21. Mari's Autograph

    From the album My Macross Collection

    My original THIS IS ANIMATION, autographed over two decades later by Mari at a convention in Pittsburgh. Never, EVER thought I'd meet her, and get it autographed.

  23. 1/170 VF1A in the Factory

    From the album Personal Macross Kits

    Super SpaceTime Model 1/170 VF-1A buildup in a vintage Imai 1/170 Factory Module buildup I've had since high-school. Soooo tiny....
  24. Imai VF-1D MIB

    From the album Personal Macross Kits

    My unbuilt vintage Imai VF-1D variable kit, in a minty box, gotten for less than $20 on eBay. Happy Dance!
