Finally got some updates done on my EC-33B. The windshield and wings could still use some tweaking. Once that is out of the way i can start adding details for the wings and rotordome.

Still needs some tweaking (mostly in the wingtip and chest plate), but the VT-1 is just about done. I put it in with my VF-1D for a comparison.

I've been in tweaking mode as well.

Just tried it and it worked for me. Sent me to the Disk Sensor.

Thanks to danbickell's truly great help with some renders of his awesome VF-1's cockpit the other day, my VF-1 profiles now have a DYRL cockpit. I think it turned out pretty well. It'll get some tweaks eventually, I'm sure, and I'd like to do a TV one eventually too.

I only did the parts of the cockpit that could conceivably be visible, but there's still a lot covered up. You can see those details here.

Thanks, Dan!

That's odd, it works just fine when i tried it on different PCs. I 've made some minor changes to the fuselage, adding a boarding door, tweaking some parts here and there.

Progress, mostly the tiny details now.

EDIT:

Finally done.

Here an older version just for size comparisons.

I thought it's high time to revisit the Macross universe with my improved skills.

To compare this is my first attempt at profiling the Valk:

Much improved, Damian. I can't wait to see how this looks fully shaded.

Before I forget, here's the VF-1A, VF-1J, and VF-1S in high-res bitmaps. They zip up nicely, but are too big to post separately.

A small update on the VF-1S. I've settled on the F-14D three tone TPS for the intial few profiles, may do Skull leader too :)

Well after saving my art from a failing HDD and enduring the slog of re-installing XP and all the needed updates to get somewhere, I've actually finished the Vlak! Here's the first of the non cannon profiles in something of mismatched scheme. She's wearing the F-14's three tone TPS but the F-4's tail art :)

I hope you like her!

And now for a trip down memory lane. I give you Roy Focker's VF-1S "Skull One"

Thanks to Talos for the excellent references on the fuselage markings. I hope it brings back as many awesome memories for you as it did for me, been humming the Robotech (oh noes) theme all afternoon!!

Has anyone ever come across any line art for the VF-27?

Damian... on the engine nacelles? at the very back of the stripe next to the exhaust 'feet'... on some of the older model kits, they had numbers like 217 on this Imai VF-1J or LOLz, 217 on this Max VF-1J kit.

now the numbers being the same is just plan slobbiness on part of the markers or artists... but what if you just run with the idea of those numbers being like Serial Numbers for engine nacelles? on the presumption that when VF-1 Valkyrie's engines need to be removed for extensive servicing or repair, the whole assembly is removed, either the entire leg or just the lower leg from the joint? reason why im suggesting is, because the leg supports so much weight in battroid mode, that it requires special procedures to remove the FF-200#-series motors, something that O-level (the squadron owning the aircraft) cant do. (this presumes that on what ever vessel the aircraft is assigned to, that they have spare motors or complete leg assemblies on board. *shrug* just trying to apply my understanding of how Powerplants works from a real world, carrier navy POV...

anyway, think you could put that number in that location?

There's a side view of the model in the instructions that could be used as a basis for one.

Finished another VF-1, in this case it's one from Master File, a block 13-17 VF-1J. In MF, the VF-1 was suffering from fatigue problems and had to be fitted with external stiffeners on the ventral fin and tail so this block eliminated most of those. It also features flush antennas on the spine and rearranged access to the avionics bay in the nose.

You wouldn't happen to have a copy of said instructions, would you? :p

On a VF-1 roll, I finished two upgraded VF-1s from the VF-1 Master File book. The designs were tweaked some, mostly in the canopy and intake, to make them flow better. I also did the new gunpod for them, the one the VF-3000 uses, but I want to rework it a bit before I post it.

Finally got the cockpit installed in these, so I thought I would post them up. From top to bottom, the VF-1D+ (DYRL? cockpit interior for now, since I don't have a TV interior done yet), VT-1, and the civilianized VT-1C. This is supposed to be a bare one, not like the whale hunters'. The head is a custom piece, VF-1A base with the laser removed and replaced with a second camera for the backseater. Still need to fiddle with the nose some, try and get rid of that chin it has.

I kind of like it with the chin, it's like an egg plane that can fly. ^_^

The whole time I was drawing it, I couldn't help but think egg plane. :lol:

Damian, why do you call the colorful paint jobs 'lead bird'? in Naval Aviation jargon, the painted-pretty birds in the Airwing are called CAG birds, since they are typically the only aircrafted allowed non-low vis paint scemes Examples from 'Teh Last & Teh Stupid

Damian, IRL, VF-124 was the 'Gunfighters'.

I do indeed know that they were the "Gunfighters". They also had the tomcat mascot as a prominent feature of their tail art which wouldn't really do what with the VF-1 not being a F-14 and all. So a change in mascot and in my mind the unit deciding to change their name. It has happened before in the light attack squadrons. If that doesn't fly then it's not even the same VF but a new SVF assigned the 124 number (easier to swallow for some I suppose).

:)

Yup know that the full colour birds in both the hi viz (see the rainbow tails) and in the current low viz era are referred to as CAG bird, a minor slip up on my part.
