Wow, the old page finally got retired! Nice build so far on your Hornet, will your SV-51 be in Nora's color scheme or are you doing a custom? B))

the hornet is just a cheap Revell modelkit that I use to check out some alternate building methods and coloring. The SV-51 will be colored in Nora-scheme. I'm not that much of a customizer. The only custom things I did were those two things:

The F-14 was a cheap Italeri kit I "modded" into a Macross Zero F-14 with redundant pilots from two of my VF-0 kits. The VF-1 was a normal Hasegawa Hikaru VF-1A. But I did another paintjob on it. Both were done without Airbrush, so they look a bit messy. Pre-ordered two of those Hasegawa VF-11, so I can do a custom-paint. Thought about VF-X II scheme :D

no, both are Italeri Kits. They are really cheap over here in german, about 9€ each.

Nice collection Urashiman. I do recommend dusting them off so everyone can see your painting skills. Unless you intentional added that detail so your models will better blend. :ph34r::p

"Hey, they aren't dusty, that's my weathering method!" :lol: I should have used that on my parents years ago.

I wipe dust about every 6 month, because I'm lazy :p

Still waiting for my Mr. Color order to build the SV-51y.

I just successfully SNAPPED the nose part OFF my Zentradi Flagship Resin model while trying to get the 2 halves to glue together properly. Outstanding. I KNEW I wasn't going to do well on this resin kit stuff. :mellow::angry: :angry: :angry:

Had a chance to airbrush my "pickle", as my GF has lovingly named it...Top only, gotta hunt down the color I want to use for the bottom this week hopefully. I think it turned out pretty good. The dark dirt wash i plan to use will darken the green up a shade or two... B)) I'm using this pic as a color guide sort of...

Technically, this 'WAS' lying on my workbench a month and 1/2 ago....

After I completed the SDF-1 custom, I was going to go back to my old VF-25S Ozma. However, I was derailed by this baby. :o

When I saw it, I just couldn't resist! :lol:

Some MW members might have seen this already from other forum, but I'm posting here again in case you're MGS fan and missed it. :ph34r:

Full action MGS REX resin kit conversion!!!

Still slowly working through my Mosacato 1/24 Raptor. Canopy and cockpit are just sitting there for reference. Weathering is almost done. Trying to match the CG model, not the 1:1.

Jesse! The weathering on the raptor is masterful! One of the best I've seen on these boards.

I was reading a hobby book a while back at a store and I saw this model by Moscato which reminded me of the project on MW. Was the one in the book this exact same model?

I hope Moebius makes a Raptor, shes one sweet bird. B))

Exo...it is the same kit. John does amazing work.

505th, I agree 100%...would love to see a Mobius Raptor. There are 2 figures with the kit. A Boomer pilot and a Helo for the rear seat.

I'll never forget seeing a couple of these at an airshow in Windsor around 1991. Very impressive beast, but certainly due for retirement.

That is frakking sweet, can't wait to see the completed kit!! :D

One of my buddies whose the manager for Smith Bros Hobbies in L.A. said the latest rumor was that Moebius will be doing the PEGASUS, but no word of a Raider or Raptor yet, keeping fingers crossed!!

I hope Moebius does the Blackbird, the epitomy of sci-fi space fighter minimalism.

Couldn't agree more, last time I saw one of the kits on Ebay I was outbid, almost had it! But I'd prefer it in 1/32 to match my Vipers! B))

Ok Guys.....Here she is...the model I have wanted since childhood...finished. This was my first multiple piece resin kit..different to say the least from a normal kit...aside from the very difficult task of getting the two halves together, I really enjoyed building it. I tried to take my time and I am pleased with how it came out. Pics really don't do the weathering justice...hard to get a good pic of it on the green paint. The kit was made by Wayne at Scale Solutions down in Australia. It was very well done in my opinion. B)) Now I just have to figure out where and how I am going to fit it in my Macross cabinet! :o
