Hasegawa SDF-1 build


Recommended Posts

i never really noticed before that the bridge of the DYRL Macross is smaller than the TV version.
So, if humans are the same scale, that would mean that the DYRL ship is just larger than the TV Version?

The two versions were the same size in terms of overall length. The DYRL version was just more compact. The decks didn't seem to extend as far back as the TV version and there were fewer stations, at least on the command deck.

 

Those PE parts added to it look great and adds a good bit more detail!

Not horrible.
The bendy foldy bits are a nerve killer. even touching them they fell apart. i'm sure when its painted, you'll see some glue goop i had to put in to hold them together. 
I invested in a new, better hobby light. a magnifying ring lamp with daylight bulbs thats been making things possible.

ITS FUN THOUGH. 
I love building things. 
I've pretty much put 3 other car kits on the back burner.

I had a $25 Ebay gift for 25 years of membership, so i got another Etch kit for my TV series kit.
Now I don't have to mix and match, and I can detail them BOTH up.

I had trouble with the plastic ones, nevermind PE.

He he, school portraits! Model photography is tough anyhow focusing on something so small and losing depth. - MT

Yeah; usually if that happens, I've read that adjusting the f-stop to move the point of focus will help.

Has anyone tried to make one of these kits Transform?

Not that I'm aware of...

 

That's quite the build. Congrats!

No, but I've done it with the smaller Arii 1/5000 model. I'd love the opportunity to attempt it with the Hasegawa version; I'm thinking the best one to try is modifying the storm attacker more, as the booms are already separated.
