ARMD Deck Swabber

ARMD Deck Swabber (2/15)



  1. Awesome collection. I recognize the Arii kit from the display stand, and is that the Macross Quarter toy in the back? Are the others garage kits? Scratch builds? I bought my first battle fortress last month (a busted up example of the original '84 Bandai toy I'm fixing up). I realized how ridiculous it was to not have an example in my collection. It would be like calling yourself a Star Trek fan and not owning a single starship Enterprise. You sir, are an inspiration!
  2. Awesome find, I love this sort of hobby archeology. How many pieces do you think they would have had to retool to make this a reality. Forward fuselage halves, cockpit tub, new glazing, throw an extra pilot figure in the box. Not to mention the wings and packs. New head. New decals. 20 individual pieces pieces maybe. 25? 35? It would have cost them a small fortune. I want one!
  3. I see some classic Lego greeblies (greeblies?, nurnies?) along the edge of the flight deck. Really amazing work. I'm jealous!
  4. Thanks guys. I'm pretty proud of it. Here are some pics of all the parts. Cults3D has a hand CR2032 battery holder I printed out and attached the LED and a little slider switch to. It just barely fits under the tent!
  5. Hope everyone had a great Christmas! Just before the Holidays I treated myself to the high metal super ostrich, as It has always bugged me that I don't own any depictions of it. It's great, and I love the little pilot figures it comes with, but it just needed one more accessory, so over to my ancient 3D printer to whip up a little tent to display it with. The final result is pretty cute, and it has an LED firelight feature! IMG_3182.mp4
  6. Hello there, do you still have BP-8 part for sale?

  7. Ah yes. Very good. Got my Millia type VF-1J in the mail and I see how the parts break down works. Wonder why the standard types were never re-released? Bandai/Arii dispute? Lost molds?
  8. I can't really be of any help regarding box variations, but I still collect the 1/100 scale variables. I'm just not very diligent about it. I just recently aquired one of the non-super/strike versions after a looong time looking. Does anyone know if these are one of those cases of an injection kit's molds being permanantly modified to produce the up-armored kits?
  9. Nice! Just watched DYRL last night! Love the launch arm sequence. Do you display it with the arm pointing straight up, or on its side so you can see more of the hanger door detail?
  10. Exactly. Aerial displays are cool for sure, Macross is full of them. Valkyrie combat is cool to. It's just the extreme mash-up off the two that comes of as a little bit strange to me. Still going to watch it though.
  11. I for one have really been enjoying the podcast lately. I have listened off and on since the beginning, and decided to tune in for the premier of Delta. I listen to quite a few sci-fi-centric podcast, and as far as I am concerned, the speaker podcast is far and away the best. It's just easy to listen to and never feels like a chore to get through. All the better that it is devoted to such an obscure franchise. As for Delta, it seems a little bit silly on the surface, and I can see why some people would prefer a return to the more realistic, classic naval aviation aspects of Macross like we saw in Zero. I think it has great potential, if I had to come up with one criticism it would be that the Var syndrome doesn't make for a very compelling "villain" in the show. Keep up the great work speaker podcast crew, I will be listening intently from here on out, and waiting for the first few episodes of Delta to premier.
  12. If that is the same kit as my Revell 1:48 F-14A, your friend put a bunch of work into closing up the gear doors. By the time I got mine faired in, I pretty much gave up on building the rest of the kit. That one turned out great. I love the paint and markings. Did the cockpit insignia come from a 1:48 Macross decal sheet?
  13. Love it. The custom paint job on the armored 1J is cool. Wish I had the motivation to take mine out of the box and start it.
  14. A bit off topic I know, but does anyone have acces to the "ImaI Files" PDF, The legendary 108 page PDF of pre-production Mospeada art work. I found a number of old blog entries about it, but the links to the actual document are all dead. Any help tracking it down would be apreciated.
