Macross II Destroids & Power Suit Kits Sources

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else know where to get Macross II designs in kit form, to include 3D prints?  (Besides of course the Bandai & B-Club VF-2SS/VF-2JA & Gigamesh.)

http://www.macross2.net/m3/macross2/macross2-index.html

I've only found them from one source with 1/200 scale being possible for the Destroids.   Of course it's nice to get the powered suits in 1/100 or 1/144 scale to display alongside various model/resin kits.  ;)

A friend of mine is currently working on the Meltrandi Powered Suit & has done the Destroid Giant Monster amongst others.  He primarily focuses on smaller scales, but perhaps with enough interest something larger will be produced.

Thank you jvmacross.  True Bolt, with the accessibility of 3D printing now, I hope we'll see more people create these rare designs.   :lol:

Awesome, thank you very much!  Now I just need to find someone who offers 3D printing services for those files you mentioned.  :hi:

Hey those came out great, they look like they were printed with a resin printer which really is the preferred method for models.  One of these days I'll have to break down and get one for myself.

The Anycubic Photon's on sale right now for under $250. Just a FYI if you want a cheap entry-level resin printer.

Really tempted myself.

yeah you can do some fairly great stuff with the Photon and Mars printers and they are cheap for the quality but bear in mind the print area is not huge. They are amazing though if you are into miniature games and such or are ok to print larger things in smaller chunks. Just might want to review a youtoob video or two to see the process and understand some of the negatives (the smell, the mess, liquid resin toxicity, etc)

That's great! I love the monster! I was going to share about the printers on sale too. I'm tempted to get one, but gotta replace my mill head first. - MT
