Global's Pipe Holder (6/15)



  1. Part of my personal collection, please enjoy! In addition to the collectibles shown in the video, the following: I have (2) closet cabinets full as well of unbuilt kits As well as a box packed with built super Macross rare resin kits, and maybe (25) various built/unbuilt kits spread around the bedroom. Likewise I have (4) boxes of Macross resin/plastic kits enroute from the United States. I have around (5) model kits being professionally built around the world by customizers. Lastly, I purchased a large Macross collection from my friend in Canada. They'll be arriving in batches this year. My ultimate goal is to photograph every single kit and built project to share will all my fellow collectors and model builders! PS: If you can identify the song in the comment section, I'll know that you have great taste in music. Macross Complete Collection (4).mp4
  2. This is my Imai 1/72 VF-1A variable kit with armor from the Bandai 1/72 VF-1 fighter mode kit. As well as Chad's VF-1D with armor which was my inspiration.
  3. My latest commission that was completed for me by Tom (Chicago) who is an expert at building Experten. I think this is maybe his 40th commission over the last 20+ years of our friendship. The Holy Grail 1/100 VF-11MAXL! @nightmareB4macrossThank you very much and best wishes to you and other Macross model kit fans.
  4. @pengbuzzIf only we could find out their actual names, but we'll have to settle with what we know for now. @ConvectuosoBoth kits are very nice, congratulations! It's definitely not easy to build the variable resin kits, they did a great job! Very excited for this project, it's a super rare Holy Grail Experten variable kit. I don't even know of another in existence. Also included are some recent arrivals. For more than (20) years I wanted to own the IHP 1/100 VB-6 variable resin kit and I have finally have one in excellent condition. That's in addition to the only known built one in existence that I posted previously. If you have a good eye, you'll see a couple of very rare 3D printed kits from my good friend Xigfrid's Customs in France. Plus some really hard to find Macross resin kits. I'm sorry for not posting for a while, just got busy. Hopefully everyone is doing well, please share pictures of your model kit collection with us!
  5. Love this build, really impressive, great details, decals and colors!
  6. @pengbuzzNice job, yes I agree with you that's a good explanation. From what I also understand, IHP and Liquid Stone are the same company. Some or all of the group went on to form Experten, which has similar kits. If you or anyone else ever comes across the IHP 1/72 VF-1 complete model or the conversion kit for the Hasegawa please let me know. I've been looking all over for one around 20 years now. @BoltThanks very much, and I hope you're doing well!
  7. @XigfridYeah, amazing work on the drone my friend, and thanks for reminding me I have one from you already.
  8. @captain americaWell, that explains why it looks so good! Now I just have to find one for sale.
  9. Holy Grail Kit/Project Compilation #4: IHP resin kits, they're super rare, (10) or less of each and sold at certain Wonder Festivals in Japan. They are considered to be perfect variable, and IHP are pioneers because they are the first company to release several valkyries as 3 mode transformable. Very small group of 2 - 3 people creating and then producing designs from scratch. These are definitely the pride of my Macross collection, please enjoy! $50 Reward to whomever can tell me if "IHP" is an acronym and if so, what it stands for. Also, any information about the origin of the company, who is in it, etc. Likewise the relationship between IHP, Liquid Stone and finally Experten. 1.) 1/100 VF-11-C "Thunderbolt" Kit 2.) 1/100 VF-11C "HWC" Macross World Version Kit 3.) 1/100 VF-11-C "Thunderbolt" Built 4.) 1/100 VF-11MAXL "Custom" Kit 5.) 1/100 VF-11D "Jamming Birds" Kit 6.) 1/100 YF-19-2 "Alpha One" Kit 7.) 1/100 YF-19-2 "Super Nova" Kit 8.) 1/100 YF-19-2 "Super Nova" Assembled/Not Painted 9.) 1/100 VF-19 "Sound Force" Kit 10.) 1/100 YF-21-2 "Omega One" Kit 11.) 1/100 YF-19/YF-21 Super Armor Parts 12.) 1/100 VF-22S Mission "Orpheus" Kit 13.) 1/100 VF-22S Mission "Orpheus" Kit 14.) 1/100 VF-22S Mission "Orpheus" Built 15.) 1/100 VF-22S Conversion Kit 16.) 1/100 VF-4G Lightning III "Orpheus" Kit 17.) 1/72 VF-4G Lightning III "Orpheus" Kit 18.) 1/100 VF-17S Nightmare "Diamond Force" Kit IHP Variable Resin Kits x 18 Price Range Each $150 - $300
  10. Hello, To buy or to make your own? Hopefully this will help anyone who is wondering what's the best approach to take. It's hard to find a ready-made cabinet that is sturdy, has the right dimensions to fit in the space you have while also giving the optimum display area. Not only that, but they often have doors that slide or make it difficult to get the valkyries inside. I was lucky to have some existing shelving in my bedroom. So I decided to dust off my rusty carpentry skills to upgrade the shelves into what I wanted. Fortunately, I also had the help of an experienced friend who recently passed away. Whenever I look at my display I think of the fun we had together building them. I started off by measuring the various mecha in my collection to get their maximum height, width and length. The top two shelves use a hinged single door that lifts upwards and is supported by adjustable hinges. I did this so it was easy to arrange everything without any obstructions. The lower section has three doors which swing all the way to the sides to also allow easy access and arrangement. Wood shelves alternated by glass shelving. Thanks for looking!
  11. Is this the Xigfrid drone for sale here?: https://www.shapeways.com/product/7KNE9LRD4/drone-fighter-from-macross-plus-v2 Comparing them I see a lot of similarities, but the HMM missiles seem to be different. Thanks in advance!
  12. They all look amazing, love the paint scheme and weathering! It's also cool to see the enemy mecha for a change. The Zentraedi Soldier has a great sculpt nice not so skinny like some I've seen, reminds me of the Experten version: http://experten.cocolog-nifty.com/blog/ Who made your kit?
  13. @pengbuzz @Bolt Thanks very much, and I'll do my best to post more. I've been dealing with depression for a long time, I get distracted and procrastinate about visiting Macross World. But collecting, building and enjoying the box art from Macross kits always makes me feel better. Plus I really enjoy seeing other people sharing their model kits with us. @Convectuoso I'm really happy your kit arrived safely and I have one being built now that I hope to share soon. @Hiriyu I can give you a lot of credit for getting me interested and dedicated to completing the HEWAT set as well as the others. I was doing research for my Macross Complete Model List (MCML) Project when I came across your pictures. You did a great job finding the (6), and I wish you would have been able to finish the set. They really had amazing box art back in the 1980's. @SpacePirateNeko Really nice collection, you have a lot of kits and some rare ones too, especially the Club M 1/72 Q-Rau. I'm still missing that one, what's in the brown cardboard box please? @Shawn Greetings and I hope you're doing well. @razgriz Nice find! My recently completed Hasegawa 1/72 VF-0S with Ghost commission. This guy has some really awesome builds please check them out when you get time. I'm not sure if others do it, but with kits that have color coded parts runners he paints the parts on the sprue, carefully removes them, and then does touch up later if needed. That's a huge time saving on kits with a ton of parts. Here's a sample: https://codyscoop.com/liger-zero-panzer-zoids-172-hmm-kotobukiya-model-kit This projects was the inspiration: https://codyscoop.com/hasegawa-vf0s Since the above valkyrie is from Macross Zero, I would love to share my recently commissioned F-14 Tomcat. Just add some Macross kite emblems and it'll fit right in. Enjoy:
  14. Really amazing builds! Yes, I was thinking the same as Shawn about the rarity and cost of this project. Especially if original Club M 1/72 kits were used. If not, I know from experience that hiring someone to make a mold and recast resin kits can be expensive as well.
