*Final* Motorized 1/72 VF-1J Prometheus Flight Deck

Thanks Derex.

I'm not a good photographer, but clearly the daylight photos don't work. I need to make the video in the evening time.

The actual color looks more like this.

Needed some Greeblies and post shading.  Ready for battle.

It's amazing how much life a little shading adds.

And we are DONE.

Please enjoy my Macross show. Hope you have as much fun as I did making it.

Comments and feedback welcome (except about one little musical choice :D).

Thanks for all your support along the way. Couldn't have done it without you.

MW member Darkspire17 reached out to me. He isolated the original SDF Macross sound effects which I used in the build, timed with the guns and engine. He has lots of other sounds on youtube if you need them.

Darkspire17 said,

Hello, ive just come to say im very flattered that you used the audio from one of my old videos for your project ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z2lT5Ezj8YM  :) it's nice to know that ive at least influenced someone with the work i do. Id also like to say you did a FANTASTIC job with your partial flight deck, id love to build one for myself someday!  If you would like some more of the sound effects, i can provide them.

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is what is known as a museum quality display.

Incredible work, Arbit!!!

I don't bother posting much anymore, but this?....

You need to feel proud of what you did here arbit, because as Kup said, "You've done an amazing job lad, AMAZING!"

Even got big ups from the master 'MechTech' himself!

Thanks claude, Glad to wake you from lurk mode!

It is a special project to me, kind of like "every kid's day dream".

But I don't feel proud, because I see all the amazing modelers out there, and I know I am not at their level.

But I am really happy that I pulled it off for me and Macross fans to see.

As long as you can transfer dreams to reality to YOUR liking, then that's all that matters my friend.

When things normalize again, God willing, enter it in some modeling shows and see if you don't get surprised.

I know you'll improve with time, but your current level ain't nothing to sneeze at; trust me on this.
