  1. Yeah ... my first try to go at multiple kits at once. Especially with the same colored mold it is fun hahaha. I'll just make sure to put the right parts back into the right box.
  2. It‘s putty time, children! it is fun how much easier to build the VF-22 is, compared to the VF-19. I think I can start priming on the VF-22 tomorrow
  3. Correct! @Gabe Q thanks a lot, and correct as well! the fun part about the X-29 is, that the front was taken straight from the F-5. either the x-29 is way too big for 1/72 or the F-5B is too small.
  4. @MechTech hahahahaha yeah! @arbit indeed. But this time it is a VF19A. who can guess the white one?
  5. IT‘S ALIVE! Okay… I think the F-5B is alive and kicking again. Still need some panel line scribing but, it looks okay now. And because working on two kits is not enough, I started kit number three! Maxs VF-22 from macross 7.
  6. I felt, that I needed a break from the F-5B. So I started building something I have on my kit pile for years now. I got that VF-19A when it released the first time almost two decades ago. I also got the photo etched set from jasmine models, which is so awesome. I really like it.
  7. Okay, update on the F5B. I basically drenched it in Revell putty yesterday and let it dry for ~24 hours. and today I started to sand away on this like crazy. Uh! So this is where I am at now. One side almost done, the other still needs so sandpaper love. I think I am on a good way here fixing this crappy kit. Lets see how it‘ll turn out.
  8. Okay, next phase on the F-5B cockpit section finished. I’ll have to do a lot of sanding now, and then, the good old panel line scribing. YAY! A bit better lighting today, so the “detail” is showing better.
  9. Scratchbuild time… comming along slowly. sorry for bad lighting, though.
  10. nice! where did you get that model from?
  11. When messing up a €2.99 kit, just purchase €6.00 Evergreen stuff to fix it. hahahahahahahahahaaha
  12. I'll give it a try to resurrect it - if it doesn't work, I will discard it.
  13. Hahaha meat moss - no, there was no actual cockpit in those to halves. Only the struts to hold the seats. Red FIMO is bad...
  14. The whole front section is soft now, starting from the edge of cockpit, all the way to the front. I think I‘ll go with building the whole cockpit section anew. Shouldn‘t be too hard. Three plates left, right and buttom, landing gear box, the front plate to attach the actual nose, then some sanding and panel line scribing. Done.
  15. I decided to work on my 1/72 Matchbox F-5E Tiger again. Before putting it on hold some months ago, I was in the process of creating a new canopy, forming it with FIMO by hand and sticking it to the cockpit, so I can pull down some heated clear stuff over it. You know the process Anyway, what I didn't keep in mind was, that FIMO uses plasticizer to stay clay like. So now I am having an issue here... The cockpit section just melted away. So three options now: - Trying to figure out how to dry out the plasticizer without melting the rest of the body - Purchasing Evergreen plates and cutting off the nose, then completely scratchbuilding a new nose with cockpit - throwing it away and going on to the next project. Any suggesstion what else can be done?
  16. Well - for the VF-X they need to change the mold drastically. I mean, they need to update the panel line design, as the VF-X to VF-1 panel lines are super different. There need to be new molds as well, for the arms. The VF-X had no arms. VF-X VF-1
  17. @MechTechSo far it is non-scale. Just a little 3D VF-1 study to practice some modelling skills. Nothing specific planned yet. I still have to finish my 1/72 VF-9 Cutlass. That is still on my desk. Not sure if I was posting this here already but here you go. Some VF-9 renders.
  18. Did a little 4 hour practice today, and decided to do the VF-1. Yes - just another 3d modelled VF-1, but this time I did the VF-1P (which not to many people have done yet). I used line art from the Variable Master File for the VF-1 to make this. and a quick projection mapped render.
  19. I was building this over the past weeks, as a present for the fiancé of my wifes sister (not sure if there is a proper term for that relationship in a family). He really likes One Piece and didn’t want to purchase the 300 bucks Going Merry. So I got the bandai kit for cheap and smashed it together rather unprofessional. Still looks better than the 300 bucks version. priming the crew pre-shading the ship. first airbrush stage done heavy masking tape job for white parts. color was a bit to thin and went under the masking. Had to fix that later. the finished crew. My index finger next to them for size comparison. the finished ship. I liked the kit. It was fitting really well and was a pleasure to build. 100% recommended for any One Piece fan. wasn’t my best build though, as I was a bit under time pressure to get it done until his birthday.
  20. FA-37 Talon from the movie stealth (which was basically a Macross Plus Rip-Off)
