  1. *bump* for this What ever happened to this vehicles? With the set of 1/72 pilots and crew coming I need some of this. C'mon people! Please? Martin
  2. Here's a couple of Hasegawa's VF-1 block-5 and block-6. Of course block-5 has a lot of scratchbuild cockpit. Have to find a better light to the pics tho... Martin
  3. Well, I have a 2 year-old son that have most of my time, so it will take time. The Daedalus should be faster given the experience with the Prometheus, but the Macross will be hard. About the VF-1, I wont be making a step-by-step since there are many already on this forums and they are really great, so no need of another one; but I'll tell you this scoop: it will be a block 5 (or TV version) of the cockpit. Thanx! I love your work too, and sure, let me know if you come here someday, will be great to have a meeting with another fan! Martin
  4. thanks everybody for your comments! they are really apreciated. Major Tom - I really didn't make hours account but I think it would be around 100 hs. MechTech - I'm starting a couple of Hasegawa VF-1 for a change and I was thinking on some ground vehicles. After that I'll start the Daedalus (I'll need a little of your help on this one) and when finished, the SDF-1 Martin
  5. Finished pics here http://macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?showtopic=27179
  6. Hey guys, as promised here are the pics of the 1/1000 Prometheus. I really want to thank all of you macrossworld modelers since you really are an inspiration to do new things. Build up progress on http://macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?showtopic=20609 General pics Details Comparison and 1/48 pilot playing with 1/48 I hope you all like it. Martin
  7. *BUMP* Just letting know that I finished this baby and I'll be posting pics soon. To have a 2-years-old son really pulls you out the workbench -not complaining, just a change of habit-. I'll let rest the big ships for a while and I was thinking on work some 1/72 Macross vehicles for a change. Martin
  8. WOW! I'm really looking forward to see all the interior details. Keep it up! Martin
  9. Amazing work man! It's really cool to see them all together. Martin
  10. There is a custom of the 21 on the magazine section but I don't recall seeing a 19. Check out the articles of VF-E of Character Model. Martin
  11. 1999.co.jp has them on preorder. It says the box has 10, and being 12 models, that means with one box you couldn't complete a set
  12. Hey guys! Thank you all for the comments! I finished painting the flight deck and I'm really happy with the results. Just a few details left to resolve. Here is a geneal view of the flight deck, elevators and bridge detail As Neptunesurvey requested, this is a dark pic of the stern. It has almost no detail becouse I hope one day to be attached to the SDF-1 Now this is a detail of the hull as how turned out the weathering (you can see the rails of the elevators made of 1:700 ladders). Now my real problem is how to make the lines of the elevator as seen on the lineart, becouse they are really thin Here is the lineart I mean from the fantastic Macross Mecha Manual site Martin
  13. Hey guys! Finally started painting the flight deck as posted before. The hull is mainly finished on the painting and weathering. Thanks MT for the suggestions about it, I tried painting the panel lines but the result didn't convinced me; finally I decided for the rust The lines on the flight deck are like the designs on the artbooks (Perfect Memory, Miyatake, etc.) Still to do the ones of the elevators and the weathering on the deck. I hope you all like it. Martin
  14. Hi guys! As always thank you everybody for the comments. This is a little update. Started finally with the paint and have the two basic hull colours. Everything went really smooth until I took off the masking of the red and the Tamiya tape took some paint with it. Just some little spots but is another airbrushing session. This weekend I'll spray the dark gray base for the deck and then I'll start weathering. I think I'll make some really soft dark gray or black spots on the gray before the chalk washes. As I build mostly waterline models I'm really not sure on how to weather the red... MechTech, any suggestions? Well, here I leave you the pics and any idea welcomed Martin
  15. Hi people! Little update. First, thanks everybody for your comments, it's what keeps modelers going Well, I sprayed the whole ship in neutral gray just to see how's everything together and the results were great. Just a little Mr. Surfacer here and there. Added the photo-etch net to the "fingers" but I have to take a close-up of those. The pics are blurry 'couse were taken in a hurry. I hope to have an update soon when the painting begins. Martin
  16. Hi everybody! Finally an update! I was looking at the date of my last post and it was around the date my son started walking (meaning touch-everything) so it was very difficult to get some time for the models. Anyway, I've added some little details all around and the only "major" work was the bridge. Here on a front view: Hore a back view: Here on the Prometheus: The bridge still needs a coat of Mr. Surfacer 1000 and it would be ready to go. That's all for the moment and I wait to get more updates soon. Martin
  17. Thanks Lone Wolf, now we know that the Saturn Guide doesn't have any drawings, 2 book still to go. Warpaint, I believe the bridge doesn't have any windows, or that's my guess at least. I'm working on my IJN fleet in 1/700 and the Prometheus would be awesome on that scale, but my idea is to go with the SDF-1, so 1/700 is out of the question The bridge shape is pretty clear to model it, I think the design is a little poor on the antenna section and that's why I'm looking for more info. About the model, I think I'll be posting an update next week. Martin
  18. Yes, these lineart is on the Miyatake book, but thanx for the tip anyway. Your site have an amazing resource material BTW, I use it a lot. Martin
  19. I really don't know if this topic belongs here, so please Mods move it where it should go. I'm working on the 1/1000 Prometheus as you can see on this topic and reached the bridge finally. The thing is that I own the TIAS books, Miyatake works, etc, but the more detailed image of the Prometheus bridge is the one seen on the Playstation DYRL intro. There are 3 books about this game and I don't know if any of this have lineart of this animation or a good pic of the bridge, so my request if for any who own this books can provide me with a scan or let me know that aren't pics or lineart about it. Well, I depend on you guys, thanx in advance. Martin
  20. That's gonna look amazing! it's so good to have the updates back Martin
  21. On early bird on hlj: http://www.hlj.com/product/HSG65778 and http://www.hlj.com/product/HSG65779 Preview on the Hasegawa site: http://www.hasegawa-model.co.jp/VF-1.htm No news of any new valk tho Martin
  22. I'm waiting for some custom photo etched pieces to arrive (propellers and some details) and the little detail added does not worth an update at the moment, but still working on it. Martin
  23. Be happy! You'r not the only one! (mine in a smaller scale, of course) And amazing work, as always. Martin
