  1. Very nicely done, good to see a unique diorama. One of the best I've seen in a long time.
  2. Hey Mark great to see you back, I know how a new born can keep you busy and well Law exams to wow what a work load. I've been toying around with the comps for the models and I'm hoping next year we may have Australias leading model magazine there to. The main thing with the comps is that I find that it is pretty easy to start getting carried away with them, so I want to keep it to 4 or 5 at the most in the way of categories. I ran some idea's past Matt last week and I'll post up my idea's for categories soon. We also have a Mac Aus Con donation PayPal site now so donations can be made if anyone has some spare change they want to get rid of.....lol. Just please remember that it is a donation and come con time you will still need to purchase a con ticket, but this should be a lot cheaper come 2010 more around the $30.00 mark I would say. Anyway to make a con donation just send it to the following address :- macauscondonations@live.com.au any donations no matter how small would be very much appeciated.
  3. Not a great deal happening this week, life seems in the way for everybody this week. We are however looking at locations to see what the Gold Cost has to offer, which is quite a lot. So more just a bump for the tread....more news as it come to hand so keep checking in. Thanks!
  4. Beautiful work as always, great to see your latest work keep them comming.
  5. I still think it should stay around May maybe April as then you would get better deals as it's moving into the off season. Plus it's still warm so you can enjoy the surf, but not as packed with people as in summer, also summer moves it close to Christmas and that will complecate things for people.
  6. I'm with Shazam on this one, as I have talked to some of you about. I think the Gold Coast would be a great place to get a venue for the next con, as it has a lot to offer apart from the con itself. Being so close to all major attractions to would give some members a chance not only to come to the con but perhaps have a holiday aswell. There is a lot of great venues that can cater for our convention, as well an airport and train for those wishing to use public transport. Also holding it on the coast gives a great chance to have a good time at night and an after party or dinner on the Saturday night if the con is over two days, plus we should be able to get great hotel deals for those who wish to stay for the convention. I really think that the Gold Coast would be a much better venue than Brisbane IMO.
  7. Thanks Ruskii, and good idea for those who my have missed it. Big Thanks to Hobby Link Japan.com for the prize, was fantastic. A simple idea I had to see a valk with a massive weapon system, more than the Strike pack. Also an idea to show the evolution from reactive armour on the VF-0S and the VF-25 full armour, the EMU was to be a link between them all. Also to the idea was to have a fighter that was designed to destroy capital ships, the extra armour came from thinking about surviving attack runs on these ships. I also decided that it nwould be good if the armour would transform with the valk rater than having to be jettersoned. Anyway this is the EMU..... so hope you injoy if you haven't seen it already and you find more pictures here.......http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?showtopic=30054

    1/72 VF-1S+ EMU Custom

    1/72 VF-1S+ EMU Custom. Winner Mac Aus Con 09 "Custom Build"
  9. OTHER THEAD GUYS!!!!!!!............lol Clicky, Clicky http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?showtopic=28583
  10. as this is a static model it only needed to show a small amount of the transforming detail just like the hasegawa valk under it, the armour on a real one would be fully transformable. The nose armour slides up to shorten and the armour has it's own canopy shield that you can just see the tip of and the canards would fold down then around under the sides of the armour, the wings swing back to move them out of the way of arm movement. The knee gaurds also would be able to move fully forward to allow for gerwalk so the armour has been designed from the start that it can transform with the valk. As for radar I imagine that radar is far more advanced than anything of todays standards as most of the macross equipment have some sought of stealth, the radar or more targeting system and is tucked between the boosters to keep it out of direct fire, it is also more for detecting positions of capitalships to plot it's attack runs as well as providing ECM cover for the EMU and escourt so it's position doesn't hamper it's use at all. So like I said this is a static model so like most models all the transformatin parts are not fully clear (eg. SV-51, YF-21 etc. model kit), but the build from day one was that it is fully transforming armour. Oh the twin cannons to are Rail Guns not beem lasers, the rail gusns can fire rounds almost continuosly and can carry a lot of rounds due to there small size, the targeting looks for the reactor of the capitalship that it's targeting and once aquired the EMU fires to hit the reactor of the enemy ship causing the reator to detonate which in turn destroys the enemy ship and any in close proximity making an attack by an EMU deadly to a enemy fleet. I have been aproched to make this into a 1/48 fully working armour for a Yamato so we'll see what happens as it will be a big job, one I'm looking forward to.
  11. Thanks for the comments, the build time was about 2 1/2 months to have it fully complete.
  12. Thank you gentelman for your posts, the EMU was a labour of love to be something different at the Mac Aus Con, plus I do love the look of beefy mecha. The EMU itself was a cross of VF-0 Reactive Armour - VF-1 Super Packs and the much later and new VF-25 Full Armour. The EMU Armour is completely scratchbuilt using next to no model parts just sheet styrene, and yes the armour is fully removeable from the valk. Again thanks for all the posts and comments, it makes the effort well worth while.
