    The 1/72 YF-19 Battroid's details looks good I might say.












    ... but I wonder. If I cut that one up and rebuild it in fighter mode, would it look like the Hase YF-19? This one looks a bit... (no fat shaming here) bulkier, or is it just me?

    I’m not sure if it’s a big Macross thing since Max is known for doing a bit of everything. As far as wave the big ones like Ma K and Votoms and I’ve seen him work on Macross as well. I’m hoping for more Macross, but I don’t think this news is really gonna be a huge flood of Macross kits from Wave. I’m sure they have stuff they were already thinking of releasing.

    mhmm ... okay.

    Well, the VF-171EX Armored Version and the YF-29 are in the pipeline.

    Saw some chatter about this on FB. It seems legit, but you never know when it comes to news on April 1st. If legit, I wonder what impact this will have on his ability to design and produce high quality Macross kits. He seems to be keeping his Max Factory contact information and his profile says that he's still working at Good Smile, which is interesting. He might be spreading himself too thin. I hope not. I'd like to see more high quality kits. You know, like the 1/20 Strike Battroid VF-1S we've all been waiting for....


    Nope ... real. I expect even more Macross stuff from wave now :)

    Did you put a top coat on the decals after they were applied?

    yep ... but the turpentine got through it too easily and killed everything. There are also other crazy methods when it comes to decals.
    1. Gloss coat
    2. Apply decals
    3. Gloss coat
    4. Sand decals, and carefully sand off the clear decal carrier foil
    5. Gloss coat again

    result: no small edges around the decals.

    downpoint: it takes ages, so I am not doing it. haha

    I usually do the wash after decals and topcoat so the decals get the same weathering and panel lining as the rest of the kit

    I‘d do that too, but I am super horrible at washing. Last time I did that killed my decals.

    @Urashiman I remember! It may have subconsciously helped in deciding to build this one. I actually wanted a quick build for a model show coming up in a week. And, except for some fiddly construction, it has been.

    That snow speeder is looking real nice, but don't poo-poo the VF-1 too much. She looks like she'll be a nice shelf queen.

    Yeah. It has been declared accessible for the scion. He likes it.

    Now on to the VF-19 front.

    Paintjob done, gloss coat applied. Now it needs to cure for 24 hours. Then I can oil color wash it. Then decals after the wash.

    @electric indigo All those little, exquisite little parts are sure to make something grand!

    @Urashiman Sorry about the Plamax VF-1, but there are more out there to buy! As to the VF-19, I'm liking the blue. And that is master-masking!


    For me, I don't know what I'm doing anymore! Every time I work on my model it changes shape again. I have no idea what it will be next!!


    Those intakes look familiar…

    Thanks a lot!

    I mean, from far it doesn’t look too bad.



    But I ordered more…


  8. I decided to work a bit on my backlog. VF-19A.

    Masking masking masking:


    Airbrush airbrush airbrush:


    Peeling peeling peeling:



    I decided that I am done with the PLAMAX VF-1. Botched… too man fingerprints and messed up paint job. I ordered a new one and will try again. No pictures as it is too embarrassing. The kid will have a new toy haha.

  9. @pengbuzz ah a classic pengbuzz tape model! Awesome!


    I decided to purchase SUNLU high toughness resin, thinking I would get my prints to be a bit more less brittle. It is awesome.  I can throw my print around and it doesn’t break… but…


    I smashed everything I could on the build plate of my VF-9.


    and also printed an army of Milias.


    And you can throw them around because the stuff basically is liquid rubber.


    Can be bent around like crazy and doesn’t break.

    Here two additional pictures for your convenience.

    Oh yes, and I've been recently working on a batch project of all four of ARII's Zentraedi capital ships: Breetai's flagship, Kamjin's flagship, the LST, and the standard battleship. I've put two videos on YT of this build so far.



    Haha cool - I have the battle ship in my basement as well.
