My favorite band is Galmet, from Osaka. They came to town to do a show last December, and I wanted to do something special for them.

So I made this. 1/64 scale Deco-truck. There is a real subculture of guys heavily decorating their trucks in Japan, but it's usually to Enka singers, or Japanese culture. This might be the first death metal related one. All decals were made by me.

Just a confirmation.

I would like to do one thread for all my WIP(Scale, Macross, Gundam and non).

I build and paint kits in badges so there will be spurts off high-activity during the

various stages.

Where would I place such a thread now.

If it's going to have Macross then you can put it in the Workshop, even if you stray into other things.

Holy ____ ! Is right. That must have taken hours, upon days, upon weeks, upon months to complete. I live the realism in the water.

The sub - the water - the wake - the shocking, mind-blowing time and talent involved . . .

That build is the PNULTIMATE build - especially in 1/350th scale!!! It looks like a larger scale build. I've gotta say this is one of THE BEST of the BEST!!! - MT

I saw a coworker build a b52 out of paper clips. Don't know if he has finished it or not, but the turbines spun, and the controls in the cockpit actually moved stuff. Blew me away.

I still think the carrier is way "awesomer"

Weird. As an Aliens and Macross fan, I can't believe I never noticed that.

I keep looking for YouTube tutorials on how to do water dioramas like this... can't seem to find any. There's a ton but not this quality. Not that I do battle ship dioramas...

Did you know that Macross kits kind of guest-starred in "Aliens"?

http://www.therpf.com/f9/greeblie-identification-needed-aliens-36203/

If memory serves the Betty in Alien Resurrection had the entire leg of a VF-1 built into it. Macross/Robotech also pops up in Star Trek too. Quark's Ferengi phaser is an Invid shock trooper cannon, and a wing from a VF-1 gets embeded in the captain of the Enterprise C's forehead. :D

Finally finished!! A 1/32 scale F-4J Phantom II, from Tamiya. Everything is OOB, except for the decals. Wanted this to tie back to Macross a little bit! I actually started this last year, but had to box it up when it got too cold to paint with the window open, as it's too big for my painting booth.

Wow! Simply amazing. Congratulations Jefuelmon on that huge build, it turned out beautifully. I always loved the Phantom, especially in those colours. Thanks for pointing me to this thread, I have never even seen it till now - I'm definitely subscribed. I'm honoured to be amongst such talent on these boards here.

"Real" kits are a bit more of a challenge than building sci-fi. Biggest change I did was that the black walkway access markings on the top sides and wings should be grey, but the after-market decals for that part were total crap, and I wasn't motivated enough to mask and paint (over a year since I started it, I wanted to get done!)

It was fun building a 1/32 scale kit, but I honestly like 1/72 the best.

Amen to all this. That Phantom is killer. I have a couple of the Luftwaffe RoG kits on deck in 1/72. I have a 'Nam fujimi kit in SEA camo, but that can wait.

I love that movie. Thanks for bringing that up, I wouldn't have noticed otherwise. I'll have to look into the variable cranial implant you write about. :)

I just don't see it from the pictures I can find.
