1/72 Monstar V2 Finished kit


Recommended Posts

Calling this finished. Tried to take pics in a couple of different types of light to show off the panels and drybrushing. One with a regular size spray can for sizing, this thing is huge....

I will be sending out a few updated parts with the decals, just getting back to casting now that the weather is getting warmer.

thanks

mike

A thing of immense beauty!

Do you have an original finished kit? I would love to see a side by side for comparison.

Thanks for the comparison pics, but I'm sorry I asked. Now I really really really want to add the V2 to my collection! :o:blink:

My wallet hates me. :ph34r:

Just got the Hi Metal and just for fun here is a pic with the 1/72nd.

I like some of the stuff they did, their interpretation of it, if i ever do a 1/60 or a 1/48 I would want to take some inspiration from this Hi Metal one for sure.

The basis for a lot of my 1/72nd kit was the 1/144 Yellow sub kit, the Hi Metal has some much better defined details that i would love a crack at.

How have u been able to made it? Is it resin??? Is it articulated and posable?

Gatsu, here's the very interesting thread about how Mike designed this second version of the resin kit:

http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?showtopic=37927&view=&hl=&fromsearch=1

Here's where he discussed developing Version 2 and the improvements he wanted to make on the original model:

Wish I could afford one! Regardless, I think I stumbled across the discussion well after he had sold all of them.

thanks, i saw it. Yes in fact the Monster seems really huge if those destroids are the 1/72 Bandai. 38 cm tall is a lot, maybe too big. But i don t understand why the Bandai 1/100 is almost half that because i think it s almost 22-23 cm tall, and it looks too small if compared to that... there is not that difference between 1/72 and 1/100...

Thanks NZEOD but i'm quite happy with my Wave Tomahawk wich looks very similar to the Moscato's. The one i wish more is the Spartan, nobody made a decent version of the Spartan exept Moscato... well the zentradi mechas too...
