Model Kit Collection Show It Off!!!

Recommended Posts

I loved making this VF-11B kit, but I couldn't do much with the control surfaces - the kit doesn't quite match the drawings, and on the kit the control surfaces extend into the body (which didn't seem to be the case on the reference material I could find).

Delta-One-One, Nice to see all your old builds. Are you working on anything new these days? Would love to see your work. Join us at the Workbench thread.

I know that feeling, except that (all subjects together) my tally currently stands at 623:rolleyes:, plus about 200 built kits in a large display case.

For Macross, I have 19 kits I still have to build. Two 1/72 scale vinyl kits by Wave (VF-17 and Blazer Valk), two 1/72 Hasegawa fighter kits (VF-0D and VF-11B), four 1/72 Club-M/Yellow Submarine kits (VE-1, VF-4G, YF-21 and YF-19), Yellow Submarine 1/4000 SDF-1, and ten 1/100 Wave Battroid kits (Elgerzorene, Sound Force VF-17, VF-11 MAXL, VF-11D Jamming Birds, VF-17S/D with fast packs, VF-22S, VF-11B, YF-19, YF-21 (to be converted into Milia VF-22), YF-21 with fast packs). Unfortunately they're not really at the top of my stack of kits right now, but I think I might have taken pictures in the past. I'll try to find them.

I don't think I ever posted pics...

Here's one showing most of my Macross stash:

Missing: Yellow Submarine Macross, 2x Wave 1/72 soft vinyl kits, 2x Hasegawa plamos, B-Club Gilgamesh.

Oh, and here is my Patlabor stash:

If anyone knows where I can find the following so I can complete my box of Nichimo kits (pictured earlier in the forum):

HBUE16-200, HBUE17-200, HBUE25-200, HBUE26-200, HBUE33-200, HBUE34-200, and HBUE35-200

that would be awesome. When I get a few minutes I'll upload a few more pics. I started out getting into Mechs by playing BattleTech. Some kits were made to reflect that universe and not Macross. A mix of Dougram and even Crusher Joe in there too.

Shawn:  Thank you very much for your help obtaining these kits, and I also love the Orange Collection valkyries!  :hi:

Convectuoso:  Awesome Studio Half Eye YF-21, I'm glad it finally arrived, and I'm excited to see it become a VF-22S.  Hopefully the IHP/Experten 1/100 VF-22S that Hobby Hanger has been working on for me will be an inspiration.  ;)

Delta-One-One:  Wow, an original Nichimo display box, I would love to find one for sale.  Good luck with your search to locate the missing kits you listed.  Thank you for sharing your Macross/Mospeada collection, the Cat's Eye is neat.  The modifications you made to the valkyries are inspired.  If you ever get time to open the boxes and photograph those 300 model kits, it would be exciting to see them.  :D

Grayson72:  I hope you're doing well, you mentioned wishing you had a shelf full of built kits.  But I thought you've completed quite a few Macross projects.  Are they boxed up and not displayed or you haven't had time to finish many of them?  I know that you have an amazing collection of unbuilt Macross models.  :good:

Salamander:  Oh man, 600+ kits, plus 200 built!  That is impressive, how many of the 600 would you estimate to be Macross related?  I read that you've never posted pictures, in that case we would love to see some of the built ones when you have time.  I love your Macross resin kit collection, I'm missing quite a few of those.  The boxes look to be in very good condition too.  :lol:

Here is an ongoing commission for me using the Musasiya 1/72 VF-2SS with Super Armored Pack (SAP) and (3) Mardook Battle Pods:
