  1. Here's the unique auction item. Fresh from Macross Delta Zettai Live, the Max Jenius YF-29
  2. I was gonna say that this is the first I've seen of this, and I could've made one for you, but I would've needed the other side. Nevertheless, it looks like you are already on your way to getting it together, so that's great.
  3. That's what I thought, so Midnight for me. Here's to everyone here getting one.
  4. I couldn't find if there was a time that this is going live for preorder madness. Anybody know? Is it at 1600 Japan time?
  5. I put them both side by side, and the DX is smaller than the Yamato by about 1/4". The wings are also set lower, but most of the shortness of the DX fan racer is in the fan construction itself. They both have beautiful design, and both have aesthetics that are appealing, but I think if both were real fan planes, the DX would not fly well, if at all. That said, once they're done and I build a set, I'll post pics.
  6. I have an extra one, which I had to pay a little extra for, but if anyone is interested, pm me.
  7. I know this was a subject brought up ages ago, but I was curious if anyone had made a set of landing gear for the 1/60 Yamato Hikaru fan racer? I am currently working on a set, and they are more just for the model in a landed position (details aren't there too much). If anyone else has made them, I'd like to take a look at your design for them. Here are mine. The front landing gear is not done yet. I know the images are a bit blown out, but I don't have my 3D cad on this computer, so I took small pics of them and had to blow them up.
  8. Separate project doesn't mean that it can't be a part of the movie. From what I remember, it wasn't described exactly as that, but it is something that will be shown aside from the movie (be it a new song/video, short episode, etc.) As for the second point, I don't know your thinking to get to that opinion, so I can't really respond to it. It is your speculations that you're basing that opinion on, and so there's nothing for me to comment on for it. I don't think she'd come off flat, as there's a lot that can be done with the story there, but I don't have set expectations and ideas.
  9. I'm just gonna throw this out here. What if the Tron Valk is made for combat Mikumo, and she is the one they end up having to fight? That would mean they only have 4 Walkure members to complete this goal, and it takes Sheryl and Ranka coming in the end (now the 6 !!!!!!) to help save them all?
  10. I would be interested in being able to 3D print it.
  11. I am setting up registration now, so hopefully in the next couple of days, we can have the links ready on the website. It's been awhile.
  12. This is looking great. You've really captured the look and aggressiveness of the Valk. It looks great.
  13. Use self tapping screws. For 3D printed parts, some of the holes are too small, and you won't get them to anchor. For any odd sized pins, I use the 20mm pins, and cut them down to the correct size. I have calipers that I use to measure them, so if they're a little off, I can fine sand them to the right length. Some I usually sand down a little less, so that they don't stick out at all. You can cut them using a good, large plier with a thick wire cutter. 1mm isn't too hard to cut.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    I was able to score one from AmiAmi. But even if I weren't, there are other online stores available, and this won't be super hard to find in the aftermarket.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    For a lot of people saying they weren't going to get this, it sold out of AmiAmi quick.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    That wasn't really the point of why I was asking. It was more to find where people were shopping for it to spread the load of preorders.

    Bandai DX VF-31

    Out of curiosity, what sites do most of you use for ordering these? I know it's an age old question, I'm just curious to see where people go, so that I can figure out where other options are.
  18. Use solid steel pins. Don't use knurled pins. You will need different sizes,, which can be found in the instruction mNual, as well as screw sizes. For screws, I think the standard size is 1.7 x 6, 8, and 10.

    Thanks. I was really happy as to how it turned out. I may decide to do up a really nice diorama with this from Delta.
  20. Is March 12th not up for preorder? If so, is it due to golden week?

    Macross figures

    I am all in for the Basara and Mylene figures. Those look too good to pass up on. Technically this will be my 3rd or 4th Mylene figure, and my 2nd Basara (counting the CMs figures and the Beach Queen and FB2012 Mylene/Minmay set). They do need the rest of the band though. MAKE IT COMPLETE!!!

    The Cheyenne II is now done. It took a bit of time as the printed kits do, but I am really happy with the finished look. The brown color is actually a black primer, with a tan paint lightly dusted over it to create a darker tan. The missile pods don't line up perfectly, but it's not the worst thing.

    Thanks. Sadly, not updates yet. I have most of it done, but I have to do another coat to cleanup the forearm cannon. Easy cleanup this time, but the rest of it is done, and I'm quite happy with it. I also just finished the hand that goes on it, so after that last cleanup paint, it's ready to be put together. I also got all the priming and sanding done on the missile pods, and the first coat of color. Today I try to figure out how I want to add some variation in color and some decal work.

    Thanks. I should have the right forearme done tonight. I'm still working on the shoulder missile pods, but it requres a bit of work, as making clean cuts from the sprue was impossible. I have started the process of priming and sanding on them to find the areas I need to fix, and as soon as that is done, I still need to wait for some extra parts for the missiles themselves to come in. A finished pic will be up tonight.
