That would look really cool, IMO. Are you going to do your Thunder Hammer in the paint style as the MtF paint style to match? I really want to see Kurisama do the parts for the Macross the Ride version, including the leg fast pack thrusters, the vernier nose pack, and the different wings and fins. Well, everything that requires the full version. That would be a project I start on immediately. I'd definitely put the Paladin Prophecy 25 on hold for that, especially since I have the money now for awhile.

Hey guys, long time no show.

Truth is, I've been super-dimensionally-depressed for a while. I don't have the urge or motivation to even open up the 3D program.

I do however want to stress that the support from you guys are the shards of light puncturing the darkness of the gollum-type cave I've frequented for some time over the years.

I feel I've let a lot of people down, and it is easier to just ignore this thread & others and just dive into the shadows.

Occasionally I come up for air, and sometimes it's nicer than I think.

I know it'll get better.

Thanks amigos.

Hang in there mate - it may feel a lonely place but you're anything other than alone.

Yeah, I just wanted to say that I checked out some of your threads just now, and you're very talented. Take a break if you need to, or move onto something else for a while. Maybe you'll come back.

You're the best, Kurisama. Don't let it get you down. As someone who also struggles with depression, I know how it can be. Know that you have everyone's support!

I can feel ya, man. I've been battling it myself lately. I know it sucks when you can't find joy where you used to, or where you feel you should.

Feel free to PM, if you need to commiserate semi-anonymously. No judgement, no connections to real life - just shared geeky interests.

ok although they are minor upgrades make a big difference specifically for the qau the articulated hands leave me feeling of the lazy yamato was when did this toy


and for the vf 1x++ head originally I planned use the longs laser canons but once in hand I decided for the short because looks more aggressive I love it


once again thanks to Kurisama for making this possible I hope do not give up and continue giving us upgrades and conversion kits for our macross toys

Hey man, no worries on letting anyone down here. We all go through stuff that we don't want, or don't want to go through, but it happens. Life and wellness are most important, and I know for myself, I'm not let down. You have a talent no doubt, and we want your designs, but there's so much more that's important, and you have my support.

Glad to know you're still on the forums.

Looks great, Valhary. I still have mine in the packaging. I'm going to make it at some point, but right now, my focus is on the YF-25 Paladin. Unfortunately, I had to make a recast of the Frame Out parts due to fragility, but I'm working on the lance and the knee attachment now. All the rest is pieces from Armor and Fast Pack sets.

I think FUD is the one. I used FUD for the VF-4 head and it looks nice.

hello kurisama I was wondering if you could do this head vf-4 saw in the master file and it was love at first sight hehe, excuse me if I misspelled, I'm using a translator <a href="http://s1114.photobucket.com/user/aiorus26/media/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_20161018_202932145_zpsy1pc0siu.jpg.html" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1114.photobucket.com/albums/k525/aiorus26/Mobile%20Uploads/IMG_20161018_202932145_zpsy1pc0siu.jpg" border="0" alt=" photo IMG_20161018_202932145_zpsy1pc0siu.jpg"/></a>

Awesome!! Yeah, I'm ok. Went through a kinda rough period, on the mend tho - a few more weeks and I have a few months free to just 3D model and art it up.

Would love to see an update on this, honestly.

You are most welcome, and I'll get around to it - eventually.

See? You guys are top dudes :)

High five, man!

You chose the right one!!

random rant: UPS here in PH sucks. There is supposed to be a new Admin Order that except small value (more or less anything within 200USD approximately) from taxation but their process is still outdated and is still asking me money, what's more irritating is that they are asking almost 40 USD services and taxes when all I spent on it is only 34 USD (free shipping).

In my country something similar goes on but beside that 40 bucks you pay like 45% of the value if it goes beyond 400 or 8 lbs when using courier services.

That's why I always buy at GreatToys back then. Stress and worry-free. ^_^

but it is just a small 3d printed runner for the custom VF-1X++ head. afaik, it is only available at shapeways, so no options to buy it locally here. And yeah, customs rule sucks. I am currently deciding if I should order again (since the reason they told me was it was taxed because the paperworks was done before the effectivity date of the order) or just pay since it probably will cost the same.

Anyone care to translate each head type for me?

The S-type is obvious, and I can guess some of the others - but I'd like to know what they actually say :)

Hey Kurisama! Welcome back. ^_^

I used Google Translate app on my phone. Not sure if it's 100% accurate so I included the romaji texts. From left to right, top to bottom:

- Command control capacity enhancement type

(Shiki kansei nōryoku kyōka-gata)

- Aircraft laser machine gun x1

(Taikū rēzā kijū x1)

- Survey fleet mounted type

(Chōsa sendan tōsai-gata)

- Aircraft laser gun x4 (S type)

(Taikū rēzā kijū ×4 (S-gata))

- Electronic warfare type

(Denshi-sen taiō-gata)

- Unmanned target experiment machine

(Mujin hyōteki jikken-ki)

Hey dude!!

Thanks so much :) How awesome of you!!

I spent today fixing the old VF-4 model, some nasty and yucky geo there, but it's good now. I ended up breaking open my 1/60 VF-4 and checked to see if I could get more chin/jaw in there, looks like I can. I also started to make the other heads;

post-1623-0-94470100-1479361446_thumb.jpg post-1623-0-35602000-1479361449_thumb.jpg

Top left is the original/old/shapeways head - the one to it's immediate right is the slightly tweaked chin/jawline and small details. Bottom left and right are the others from the book.

The S-type is going to be very tricky to keep within the confines of the recess on the fuselage. You can see my progress so far, just trying to re-jig everything into place.

You're welcome sir! ^_^

By the way, I like the Electronic Warfare type. The bottom right one (2 small fins on the head). Are you going to add another layer of details on the cheeks like in the lineart?

Anyways, good to see you're back and looking forward for you to post it on Shapeways. ;)

I can try! But not sure the detail would come out in the print, why the hell not, ey? Just cause u asked :)

Hey Kurisama, if you want to enhance details a bit up on the visor, you can engrave all the electronic shapes on the inside face of the visor.

This is easy to print it in FUD and just clean the external face of the visor to obtain a transparent surface. I made that for the X9 and the result is really nice -and easy to paint-
