So I just got the first 2 Valkyrie books by Tenjin H, and I was wondering if somebody has already translated his interview at the back of the first book? Where do I find the translations?

Congrats!...those are must-have books in any Macross book collection....

I have not seen any translations of that particular interview from the first book, if you find one, let us know.

Not sure if you have come across this interview with Hidetaka Tenjin....

if you have a smartphone, the google translate app is pretty good [and free], and keeps getting better.

you can just take a pic of the text and the app will convert it.

It won't be perfect, but I think Google Translate you will get the gist of what is written.....I should go dig up that book

OK, looks like I'll have to translate it myself with Google Translate help.

It basically gathers together years worth of kits builds that have been showcased on Model Graphics.  Everything from the latest Macross Delta builds to a Macross Factory build to the Thunder Hummers and many many more.....if you don't buy the magazines but like oogling masterfully created Macross kits....then I would say it is worth picking up.

can only seem to find it at CDJ but for over $70 (AUD) shipped is a bit pricey for my liking.. and that's with the cheapest postage method. I think I'll let this one go..

Imagine what Bandai could do with the 1/35th Anniversary VF-1! :clapping:

Amazing what the modeler did with the Bandai 1/72 variable kit! :shok:
