  1. Hi guys! Recently finished. Really straight forward build. No problems at all and happy with the result. Hope you like it! Martin
  2. Thank you! I've seen your decals from the link posted before and mine is not even close to the work you've done, that was amazing! Martin
  3. Thank you all for the comments! The top parts and arms were masked and painted. Tried to do the same for gunpod and legs but was unsuccessful. So after many attempts had to re-design them and print them as water slide decals. Tried to match the colors as best as I could and turned out with kind of a decent decal. Martin
  4. Hi guys! For those of you that don't use FB, here goes some pics of the kit I recently finished. The decals set is the original that Hasegawa released back in the day. The battroid kit also was bought many years ago and unfortunately give some probles with the decals that were used due to its age, I suppose. Anyway, happy with the results. Hope you like it. Martin
  5. Thank you! Sorry for the late response. In fact I gave it quite a thoght. First gray primer wich will gave me a nice base to darken the red. Then pre-shading on panel lines with white to work as the faded color. Then a dark red all around. Chipping with a light pink. Seal it with gloss varnish, then panel lined with dark brown. Faded paint with yellow oil paint on top surfaces and some panels. Some other with light gray. Then streaks and etc. Thank you all for your replies! Martin
  6. Hi guys! As promised, made a quick base and better pics of the Schira DOW. Hope you like it! --pics heavy-- Martin
  7. Thank you guys! I'm really glad you liked it! @electric indigo some better pics on the way, I'll just make a quick base to put it on @MechTech I'm always around! Martin
  8. Hi guys! It's been a while! Well, just finished this nice kit from The Wings of Honneamise, the Schira DOW 3rd. It went like a dream Now to a Minmay Guard VF-1! Martin
  9. @MechTech great to see you too! Same position as you, life and family. Keep modeling all the time but on different topics each time as to maintain interest. But Macross always present. Amazing work you'r doing there And thanks everybody for your comments. Martin
  10. Hi guys! Long time since I built a Macross model. I have like 15 models to build, so it was about time. Anyway, working on Kakizaki's super battroid. Working on fast packs and gun pod right now.... Martin
  11. Thank you guys for your comments! About the decals, I had this kit on the stash for like 10-11 years... And they were on the box beneath the instructions, maybe much of dry place? Luckily was the last with that age, now have 5 years aged or newer ;P Martin
  12. Hi guys! Here's another from the stash! As with my previous model (SV-51) this one have been sitting on the stash for too many years. The build was straight forward after building many vf-1, but the decals were another story. I believe that for being so much time on the box, when I started decaling there were many that literally disintegrated on the water. Lucky me, had many leftovers of previus valks. After all frustration, I believe it came up pretty decent. Now it's time to move to the vf-11 or 25. We'll see. Martin
  13. Congratulations! It turned out really beautiful.
  14. Hi guys! Here are my lates models, SV-51 Nora scheme and the Bandai 1/72 Regult Battle Pod I bought the Sv-51 on it's first release and was stored since. Nice and really big model to build. The decals were no easy to work, maybe becouse of it's age (12 years now!). An here's the Regult. Some chipping effects added and some dirt: Hmmm... got you now! Well, hope you like them guys! Martin
  15. I hope they can revive the bandai 1/100 line announced back then. With the VF-4 and all they previewed. Only the vf-29 and 25 made it.
  16. I have that model also. I believe the color is kind of a dark metallic purple, but I wasn't able to find a right one yet. The VF-1 is indeed a metallic blue. I used Tamiya's X-13. Hope it helps! Martin
  17. Hi! It's been looong since I post a model, so here goes the latest, wich box has been sitting for years 'til I finally get it. Even when I've build lots of Hase VF-1s, for some reason this one didn't wanted to get finished, with lots of fingerprints of glue over the paint, wich needed to be sanded and repainted, decals that appeared where not originally placed, etc. Anyway, fun to build.
  18. So buying it! I hope Kotobukiya keeps releasing mechas and vehicles from GitS
  19. Hi guys, when preordering the 1/72 VF-25 from hase, noted the preorder of this on HLJ, totally unexpected for me anyway 1/48 VF-1A/S Super/Strike http://www.hlj.com/product/HSGMC03/Sci 1/48 VF-1J 30th Anniversary http://www.hlj.com/product/HSG65824/Sci Martin
  20. Just came from theatre. Awesome movie. Even if Del Toro made 3D in post-production, really liked how it turned out. Not a fan of 3D myself but I'm glad I saw it that way.
