It's available on your Shapeways?

Yes it is listed here

I listed it on my shop just to let know what is the average cost of such a large figure or you can rotate the models and have a closer look how the parts are made.

There are 12 parts, only 11 for the Workroid, BUT you need to order 2x "05_feet". The "2 part container" is great if you can't make your own container with card board or laser cut polycarbonate sheets. I made both options, and I much prefer paying the extra for Shapeways solution!

Awesome. I'm gonna get one eventually. I know the price of parts there, so I'll probably have to do it in sections at a time. Thanks for making it available.

Making some tests with Tamyia TS 38 spray paint, this paint is very tricky... beautifully tricky with lots of reflections!

I also made some test with the yellow paint... and now I understand why everyone says painting with light color is difficult. I gonna need several layers of yellow to completely cover the primer I guess...

I've used Sketchup for all my models. Not the best 3D modeling program around, but it was the easiest to learn and to make my first prints with IMO.

And I could swear that the logo on the shoulder area looks like a white cat. I need to see episode 1 in 1080p to make sure!

Looks like a "Robert the Riveter" type pose, but using Guile.

Jeez man this is crazy. So what software do you draft these in? I've been wanting to get into 3d printing but only know how to use AutoCAD. Been quite a while since I drafted anything 3d too

EDIT I posted this w/o going thru the whole thread. My bad. Surfing on my phone. Can you download sketchup? I'll need to look into it more. Amazing work man

I meant this one:

Haha yeah I understood perfectly that you were meaning this logo :D My point was that in Macross, they hate using occidental company logos as is, and they usually make a new one that is similar enough to be recognized ...

Anyway I will give it a thought because even my pal said that the my workbench looked like a futuristic CAT, so it may deserve the logo.

Edstuff, yeah Sketchup is a free program so you can experiment it to your heart's content.

Thanks aaajin!

I had to make a pause with the yellow because the spray can emptied... Using the can instead of the airbrush uses 6-8x more paint...

Well I will make some detailling until I receive the new can!

I should add, I work for a CAT dealership. ;)

No to Komatsu! Though at least the country of origin is right...

Loving your work on the 'roid so far. I can't believe how much paint it's taken so far though - that's crazy!

Since I am still waiting for the yellow spray can I couldn't finish the legs and forearms... But I couldn't help assembling it together for a temporary display. There are detailling bits missing but I think it looks pretty cute already!

That looks great! The paint colors are a great choice too! As far as Macross trademarks go, you can always go eat at MacrossDonalds while out in space on a cruise :D - MT
