  1. Hey all, looking to buy a Chronos from overseas. Does buying it sealed have a risk of getting a yellowed copy?
  2. To those who bought through AmiAmi: how much was shipping?
  3. Thanks for the help! I think I found the part. https://www.shapeways.com/product/STXS9DCFM/macross-vf-25-gun-attachment?optionId=42656222&li=shops I'll keep an eye on it as a backup plan ... I'm hoping to find something that will weld the parts together with a strong bond.
  4. My apologies if this is the wrong place to post, but I just encountered a breakage on the c-clip hinge of my DX VF-25A's gunpod. I have the small piece that broke and tried using Mr. Cement S (which is what I use on my Hasegawa models) but it didnt stick. Any advice on what product to use or any alternate ways to make the gunpod work again?
  5. How long has it been since Hasegawa has done a new fighter mode mold? Would love to see a 1/48 YF-21 or a Chronos.
  6. From my understanding, the event goes from Nov. 18 to Nov 20 in JP, so it hasn't started yet. I assume we're getting more info during or after the event.
  7. I clicked the YF-19 Full Set Pack in the survey. I'm surprised they have not announced a WW release yet! On another note, asked for the DX VF-31A Kairos!
  8. Thanks, I'll check out the Mig Shaders. From what I just looked up on YouTube, it looks forgiving to use and produces great results. Thinking of airbrushing Tamiya flat clear for the base coat, with Ash Black over the panels. Great work on the Isamu, your pics will serve as inspiration 😀
  9. @MacrossJunkie Your weathering looks amazing. What techniques do you use? I want to weather my YF-29 Isamu like you did with your VF-25A.
  10. Meanwhile, I'm over here wanting another run of MC or SL Kshatriya... Prob not happening 😢
  11. This isn't an anime production. From the looks of it, it's a mecha designed by Kawamori for a mobile game.
  12. A few finds on AliExpress: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005003212326104.html VF-31 Missile Set by Valkyrie Factory https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005003212347614.html?channel=twinner YF-29 Alto Super Parts by Valkyrie Factory https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005003212163410.html Clear parts and sticker sheet for Arcadia VF-1
  13. Kit looks awesome. I'm surprised with how Hasegawa pulled off the leg articulation.
  14. Would love a rerun of the YF-19 full set pack. Maybe it will come around alongside the YF-21. Also hoping for a rerun of the vanilla 31A Kairos. Bandai sure left a lot of money on the table with how exclusive it was.
  15. Hopefully we'll start seeing a stream of new molds following this one!
  16. How were the EMS prices like in comparison to DHL before the pandemic?
  17. It was $115, if I recall correctly. I think it is a similar to paying for it at retail price with shipping (at current shipping costs) to the US, but I could be wrong.
  18. Just saw the Klan VFG at my local Hobbytown USA. Here's to more Macross stuff in the states!
  19. Hey everyone, I just panel lined my YF-29 and want to top coat it. I have a Mr. Premium rattle can, and I am trying to figure out what position the model should be when topcoating. My current thoughts are propping it on the given stand in Gerwalk mode and masking the stand so the stand doesnt get sprayed. Any input?
  20. Is anyone here getting the movie VF-31 kit? Would like to know if they improved anything from the previous release. On another note, a Bandai Kairos kit would be an instant buy for me.
  21. Wonder if this VF-31 release will still have that awful gold plastic syndrome in the ABS gold H runner ...
  22. Are the VF-1J DYRL Hikaru KOs out of stock? Can't find one in the above posting or on eBay.
