******************************************************************************************************************

Hi All,

Just got a time to post one small project: head custom for 1/48 VF-1R

I like the 1R design very much but the chance to include it in the 1/48 line would be 0.0000%. So I decide to custom one for myself. It is 90% finished, I will add some details to the eye laser and on the side.I am gonna 3D-print one or two next week and share the pictures of the real prototype in about 1-2 weeks.

Let me know what you think about the shape. All suggestions are welcome! Thanks!!

I like what I'm seeing so far; just keep doing what you're doing in the 1/48 scale and I'll be happy for some time. This would make for an interesting 1/48 custom. Will the kit include a translucent eyepiece if it sees production?

Yes, capitalizing on a animation error where a 1A was drawn with additional 1J lasers.

Thank you! My long-term aim is to make the 1/48 line as complete as the list given by Macross Mecha. Your support is my energy source!

Is the VF-1R a Robotech design?

Yap, that makes it to be produced in 1/48 so diffcult ^_^, but I really like to head design

This looks so much better than what was on the Toynami VF-1R. Good stuff. Are the lasers/antennae going to swivel? If I had a 1/48, I'd be on this like white on rice.

Thanks for your comments and support, Jason. Yap, I have modified the top laser 100% anime accurate. I am now adding details to the eye laser and will update this thread by this weekend.

Thank you for your interest. It is now in final trimming and I will update pictures very soon.

Actually now I am also finishing a 1/48 VF-1D macross the first head + 1/48 VF-1D normal head. I am going to offer these head in a set for your grab. A couple of weeks later they should be available.

Thank you for your suggestion, and it is exactly what I am going to do. The 1R + 1D (macross the first) heads will be scaled down to 1/60.

I'm in

Thank you for your support. I will let you know once my thread updated and they are available.

Thank you for all you guys' support.

Thanks, MT! Actually I have lengthen its cheek and added a lot of details. Now the head is 100% complete, and I am in the final stage of trimming the neck to make it perfectly fit a 1/48 Valk's body. Edited by IScustom

Awesome work man, looks way better than the one that I saw on what I think was a toynami release.That being said, WTF Harmony Gold?!?!? Taking an animation error and using it to create a new model because god forbid they use what little brain power they have, to create a new original Valk(Veritech for you robotards). :p

Child, you ain't nuthin' but the truf! If this is the level of work that you plan on doing for the 1/48s, then you can count me in for ALL of your 1/48 macross products! That's just stellar work; and knowing it derived from a one shot mistake/in joke makes it all the more stunning!

You like 'customers' for your 'customs' IScustoms?...then just keep up the 1/48 support and you'll have mine!

Hi my friend, I just checked my PM box. Sorry for my super late reply and I will inform you once these heads are ready.

What I am planning is to make the VF-1R, VF-1D (Macross the First), normal VF-1D, and VF-X bottom shell (all for 1/48) as a batch and release at Shapeways.com. You can then feel free to grab a set. Does it sound OK?

Thank you for your support!

Sure, NB4M. I will inform you when it is ready. Kicker suggest to combine the VF-1E to your 1/48 VF-1D, woo, that would be truly awesome!!

Thank you for your kind words, buddy! I will keep up my 1/48 love ^_^

I'll tale one also in 1/48.

Thanks

Thank you and noted. The VF-1R head is 100% ready now. I will send it for 3D printing within 2 weeks and demonstrate the real thing. If everything is as good as I expect, I will release the batch in the sale forum. I will let you know at the same time.

any updates???

Thank you for your support and sorry for the delay. Got fully occupied by the routine work so the hobby thing is natually delayed.

This head is 100% ready. I am not triming the Macross the 1st 1D head and will issue the head batch very soon (by latest the mid of March). Kindly PM me you are interested in the 1R head only or the whole.

Cheers,

IS
