  1. I already did build various macross kits. YF-21. YF-19, VF-1S, VF-1A (all Hasegawa) VF-1D(Arii), VF-19Fire, VF-11MAXL, VF-11C, VF-17S(Bandai) Two Reguld Pods and one of those zentraedi tanker ships But the YF-19 looks like poo now, one of my brothers threw a football(the round european ones) on it.
  2. haha well ... on my todo list is also an 1/48 Bell UH-1N, an 1/72 OV-10A Bronco and an 1/100 Tupolew TU-144 left, but they aren't in the picture.
  3. What I'm currently working on: DeHAVILAND MOSQUITO Bomber version from Monogram What is left to do: much fun and work at the same time
  4. AWESOME! This is getting me inspired to do a better job on my future macross models.
  5. I'm done with the thing, here have some pics sorry for the bad quality, cellphonecam sucks etc.
  6. I tried taking another picture of the cockpit, but cellphonecams just suck. I added ejecting levers to the seats, for some scale
  7. Some of you may know the hasegawa VF-14A Macross Zero special release. I didn't got one but had an better idea then. Using leftover pilot figures from my VF-0S and VF-0S with ghost and some water decals from a YF-21 I will turn a cheap 10€ italeri F-14A model kit into a cool Macross Zero thing to line up with my other models. As you can see I finished the cockpit so far, it is a shame I only have a stupid cellphone cam. Comments and critique are welcome.
  8. woo! another papercraft designer I made several papercraft VF too
  9. hehe cool this looks good
  10. I just don't feel like argueing because of tabs, because I just don't care about the size of tabs, and if I don't care about something, I don't talk about it. I'll see what I can do with the future models and what I can do to the already released models, but don't expect miracles from me.
  11. I never use the auto-unfold for pepakura, because the autounfold doesn't work good. I did that part like this on purpose, I must have been drunk while doing this, but I did it on purpose, it has nothing to do with pepakura. There is a function in pepakura to make flaps smaller but I don't have the time to bother about that. If some flaps are too big I just cut them smaller when building the model. everthing u said so far isn't a problem within pepakura, it is a problem wth my structural papermodel design. You people never seemed to really work with pepakura If I read stuff like that. No designer with some sanity in it's head uses Auto-Unfold. I'll just show some pictures. This is what happens if you use the Auto-Unfold in Pepakura. I RECOMMEND NOT TO USE AUTO-UNFOLD! With a little work and "precutting" it will look like this. (no auto-unfold) I still need to fix some flaps manually here but it looks better then auto-unfold. Things like this: are possible. I can change the size of the flaps but I find it ridiculous to agitate about something like this because u could just use your scissors to cut that flap. I can't think what came over me with this part, but I seemed to have a reason in the moment I developed the papercraft. If there are problems with the model they are my fault, and not the tools fault. It is like saying:"your 3D model looks like poo because u should use 3DSmax instead of blender". You can get the same results from both tools if you use them properly. Same with pepakura. I'm always under deadline pressure and I may miss some critical sections while developing. When I testbuilded that thing I didn't have any problems with it. But other ones seemed to have really (in my eyes "weird") proplems with them. Getting rid of problems like this will take years if I don't get some response from people that build the models. Luckily you people seemed to have the guts to tell me whats wrong with my templates. I'll note down what issues you have with my stuff and I even fixed the VF-11 by now.
  12. I never had problems with the small tabs (even if I'm proud owner of ridiculously large hands and fingers like sausage with no feelings in the fingertips because of a little thing I didn't think through perfectly on the coldest day in berlin). I know about "manual" papercrafting. I did this when I was a young boy and had too much time(made a DeLorean on my own and some anime stuff). I know about that VF-1, already have build it and it burned good in the end (stuffed rocketengines into the thing and forgot about the explosives for the parachute) the VF-17D is all done, just needs some instructions. the VF-25 needs texturing before developing. Still need to do instructions for the new VF-9/Vf-11 and the VF-14.
  13. It is always nice to see people building my models and I accept your critic. The YF-19 and YF-21 are Hasegawa based. The VF-11 is Bandai/internet pictures based. If you really want to build the VF-11 just don't! The old one on my website is really weird. I fixed the parts (like the jet-intakes) that always make problems to most of the people. So wait till I release the new revision. Don't talk bad about Paperkura ... it is just a CAD tool for easy paperkcraft. I use it because it is fast and I need to get things done fast, because I'm a busy man.
  14. I surely get a ticked to south alteria island after I finished my exams. MAKUROSU RIRIKU! even learned japanese for just that day ... people in the future are going to speak japanese only
  15. I don't need ideas ... I know how it has to be glued. here some pics. Hope this helps ... the upper flap on the intake of parts 10 and 11 must be folded upwards.
  16. http://images.google.de/images?hl=de&q...sa=N&tab=wi UHU is the german word for owl do you use the right paper? 120-180 g/m² paper is the best for papercraft. don't use normal 80g/m² paper or your papercraft will be easy destructible.
  17. I didn't have this problem (even if my hands are huge and need to use a pincette). Try to use fast hardening glue (like UHU glue ... works fine for me) and you need patience ... many patience. don't try to build it too fast, take your time and try out how pieces need to go together before you glue them together. That's all I can say.
  18. This is simple. They are just glued together one by one. First build the mainbody of the VF-11 and then the nose is made up of rings that go into each other ...
  19. I dunno what u mean with "pre-fab section", pictures or explaination please there should be instructions on my website www.sd-sascha.de.vu EDIT: I fixed the het intakes of the VF-11. Looks like many have problems with this part. I also redid the texture, will be available soon.
  20. Ah I c .. some people seem to have issues with building my models ask me any question and I will answer it here a render of all my planes
