  1. Could you render a video of this sexy beast spinning around in each mode and transforming? I'd love to see some of those mechanisms in action, but three digits before the decimal point is basically "nope forever" for me as far as being able to buy one is concerned. re-edit: on second thought, this is a better example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhfsUCDXasQ
  2. Very nice. Do you have images in G/B mode for those last ones?
  3. Thanks! It's not actually that hard to do as long as you have fighter and battroid modes in approximately the right orientation, but neither is it a perfect result and I suppose someone who hadn't picked up all the same PS/GIMP tricks wouldn't think it was so easy. Fortunately I got my hands on my first copy of Photoshop something like twenty years ago, so I've had a little while to let it sink in, so to speak. I've done a couple of the things from Macross Design Works too, one of the Air Cavarly Chronicles units and the alpha from the alpha/beta pair (nothing to do with MOSPEADA, aside from t
  4. So, some years ago I found just a few images, supposedly official art, of a Phoenix variant that has a big ol' antimissile laser on its back with the turret ball replacing the head. For some reason it didn't include hands, so I shooped on some from... I think the VF-11B art? Not sure, it was a while back, like I said. Looks like there's some missile and/or chaff tubes at the tail end, as well, and what are probably FAST-style verniers and fuel tanks on the legs, or maybe more missiles behind the little hatches? Anyway, today I dug them out again and finally got around to making a s
  5. This isn't a game, it's a long demo. I wouldn't buy it even if I already owned a Vita. OTOH, maybe they're using it as a revenue stream/to maintain interest in the game market to support making something worthwhile, like the Trial Frontier demos leading up to M30? EVen if that's the case, I'm still not interested in it as presented, though.
  6. Well back in the M7 days there was an entire Zentreadi-aesthetics version of both the Northampton and New Macross classes, though it's been long enough that I'm not sure if we actually saw them on screen (in the fleet that settled the Varauta system?) or if they only appeared in art books. Of course, with the digitally rendered series' being able to copy and paste instead of having someone draw and paint them all whether the same or different, it's not economical to spend production funds on more ship variants to appear in the background of fleet scenes when the ones they already have will fil
  7. I noticed that it looked very much like the jet form of the LV-7 from a tiny illustration in the interviews section of Macross Design Works, assuming that was the jet briefly shown in a Knight flashback. Both modes of that one are similar enough to the SV-262 aside from wing shape, where the intakes end up, and leg bulk that a connection seems rather likely. And dammit, I was sure I'd edited this to fix that gremlin a few minutes ago.
  8. Well, it would be nice, but I wouldn't hold out much hope for more than 3-4 designs per series, discounting color and wing/head variations. There might be some cameos from craft that appeared in F, at least. As ever I hold out hope for a VF-4 on the screen and the reissue MIGHT hint at something in that direction even, but I'm not holding my breath on that one. I do wonder if there'll be another game to go with the new series... hopefully with more of the lineup from the PSP games that were omitted from M30 and at least instrumentals of the original music with the option to replace it en ma
  9. The more I look at them, the more the SV-262 steals my enthusiasm for the VF-31. Then again, that seems to happen a lot with the enemy variable devices - the SV-51 was exciting and new versus yet another humdrum VF-1 variant (even if IC it's the other way around with the Phoenix and the Valkyrie) in Zero, basically the same in M7 with the Varauta designs versus the again-too-much-like-a-VF-1 VF-11s combined with Basara being as annoying as if they gave whatsisname Minmei's preachy cousin his own show, again with the VF-27 versus 25s in F, even though they were actually just trim variations of
  10. How'd you finally manage it, Vepariga? I'm finally going to get the game, and my strategy is pretty much looking like "do mission to get the VF-1S Fokker version after finishing 3-4, grind it up to a decent level before continuing to 3-5, then Reaction Missile the hell out of it" from reading the thread & watching LP videos. Then I'll probably immediately go back to the islands area from the desert, to pick up level 2 blueprints... On a tangentially related note, can anyone tell me if the SV-51y Nora retains its massive FAE/nuke SP attack from the PSP games? It's hard to find so much as
  11. ... if I could afford it, I would buy a full squadron of 12 of these and paint my dining room table as the deck of an ARMD to display them; the VF-4 is only below the VF-14 (M7 version, not M3)/FZ-109 family in my opinion - and good luck ever seeing an enemy unit get a toy unless they did a face turn or it's a recolor of something a protagonist flew.
  12. Hardly a scoop, just a WAG based on character designs. I'm more apt to be the last to know than the first. Looking at the pictures some more, the VF-31 has some resemblance to the Motodyne Type-26 original VF I sketched up a while back, and posted some crappy scans of in this thread: http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?showtopic=37412 Obviously not the snake-head cockpit or VF-27-ish secondary engine nacelles, but the wide delta central wing section and the FSW outboard panels are a lot like the 26 in oversweep configuration. I should get back to this design, I never did make a 3d mod
  13. Hmmm... so, idol group ala AKB48 in robots, versus ... a boy band? They do all have that bishonen look, and the little fold quartz-y hair ornaments... And single barrel cannons as the integrated weapons on the idol group's units says "speaker pod cannon" to me, but then the only thing I didn't like about Macross 7 was Basara upstaging Mylene so I'm half looking for more in that vein. Heck, I did an SES equipped VF-27 fanart a while back ("VF-27kai SES Sandalphon") which I'm pretty sure I posted here at MWF. Still, no chance of me buying any VF-31 but the yellow or black ones, and not much c
  14. That's incorrect, actually - foreward swept wings are comparable to straight and rear swept wings in most flight regimes and actually have better stability as they near a stall, because they do so from the root out rather than the tip in like conventional swept wings, and therefore do not suddenly make the aircraft try to roll toward the one that stalls first to nearly the same degree. The Grumman X-29 was notoriously unstable in flight because it was designed to be, with short-coupled control surfaces and a center of balance well off from its center of lift. I myself flew a 6ft wingspan RC g
  15. Anyone know where I can find one? Sure, I could make one myself, but all I'm really after is getting a certain custom paint scheme out of my head, so the 20hrs or so it typically takes me to do a variable fighter is a lot of effort to expend for such a relatively small result. Must be in a format Blender 2.5 will open.
