  1. Wow, all these look great. Great work, Xigfrid. That is looking like it was a toy that you bought. Have you tried transforming it into Battroid with the paint on it? If so, how does it hold up?
  2. I'm still wanting to get to my kit to build it, but I'm in need of finishing two other kits I'm currently working on. The designer is Xigfrid, so he'd be the one to do that. From what I know, it hasn't been redone yet, but perhaps in due time.
  3. I'll put them up. I'm gonna recast it first. I get these done in their hi definitely material, so it doesn't need a lot of work, but its brittle.
  4. It took me long enough! But I finally got a set of the lead edge wing verniers. I wanted them to look a little more close to the MtR version! So I started these a couple months ago. I'll be smoothing these out and recasting them. So far! The fit the way they should. Sadly! I didn't work in any snap fit! So as of now! It's a glue on only! It may change.
  5. It's been awhile since I worked on this project. I've been trying to make sure I get enough paint to mix the right shade so I don't have an issue of needing to remix. I'm also going to use lacquer paint, as it's quite strong, and should survive the transformations a bit better. I did start with priming pieces in a white, but only because the final color is a lighter color, and using grey, which I normally use, would make the yellow shade too dark. I am using a grey primer for the red and darker parts, but yeah, those are great tips. This thing is a bit tough to paint before assembly, especially the wings. I can never get them to sit properly as they're supposed to, and with painting them, that only makes it much harder.
  6. Do they fold ok in battroid? I had to go with the originals because they weren't folding well in battroid. I tried to use them, but I want to make sure they collapse properly.
  7. Looks great. Are those the modified wings, or did you customize them yourself using the originals?
  8. I believe I've responded to all pms. If I missed you, I will get to you. I've gotten quite a few request for the 1D kit, and sadly, I will have to take it down for now. I may have use for it for Super Dimension con, and aside from that, my brother is also interested in it. Until I figure out what is going on with those options, I have to take that down. There are a couple things I've added, and will add some more as time goes on.
  9. VF-1D Virgin Road is sold. I've also updated and lowered the price of the two Orguss kits.
  10. Most PMs sent. I'll get to you all.
  11. Hey all, I will be posting a few things in here, Macross and non-Macross related. Some items may be negotiable to a certain extent, as long as it is reasonable. Item prices do not include shipping or a 4% Paypal fee. Fee may be waived if making personal Paypal payment. For any questions, please feel free to PM. Macross Items: Yamato 1/60 DYRL Super and Strike Parts set. Everything is brand new and never used. This will fit the Arcadia releases, and is 100% complete. SOLD Yamato unassembled VF-1D kit. This is 100% Complete and has never been built. This is quite difficult to find. Down Due to obligations (may be back up at a later time) Tamashi Nations Bandai VB-6 Koenig Monster from the Frontier Movie. It is in the original cardboard box. This is the box inside of the standard Tamashi cardboard packaging. It is 100% complete and has never been taken out or transformed. 100% new. $275 Yamato 1/60 VF-1D "Virgin Road". This is 100% complete. It has been taken out to be looked at, but not transformed (I know, I don't play with a lot of these things). It has been sitting in the box since the first day I got it. I love it, it's super rare now, but I just need space. SOLD Hasegawa 1/72 Macross VF-X2 Ravens kit. It is 100% complete and never opened. $30 Hasegawa 1/72 SV-51 Nora type. 100% never opened. $30 I'll take $45 for both if purchased at the same time. NON-Macross Items: Orguss 1/60 GERWALK Ishform. This item is not broken like many are, and comes with the attachments and the figures. Box is in pretty good condition and is not falling apart. I'd say maybe C7.5 for the box, but I'm not good at grading them. $60 1/60 Scale Orguss GERWALK Ishkick Commander Version. It has all pieces, figures, and I believe stickers, but I don't remember. If you're interested, and want me to check, I can do that. Item is also not broken, and is in good working order. $65 Evangelion 1/8 Scale Rei Ayanami. This resin kit has all pieces and has not been worked on. All parts are 100% original, and is one of the better sculpts of her for a resin kit. $45 Evangelion 1/6 Scale Rei Ayanami "Peppy Angel" Resin Kit. This kit is 100% complete with all parts, instructions, and a photo of a completed kit. It's a rare kit, and looks great. $45 All items sold will undergo a final inspection with pictures taken to verify condition before shipping. Shipping will include insurance, unless buyer turns down insurance with no fault associated to Seller for damages. I am on the Straight Shooters List, and I've been here forever it seems. Again, any questions, feel free to ask. Thanks for looking. Jasonc
  12. That's the main idea. I will try to make a clip into the upper intake so that it provides some stability, but I'll start drafting it out this weekend. Between work and school, I haven't as much time as I used to.
  13. Nice set of decals. I am still needing to make those back ailerons. I am hoping to soon be able to get back into redesigning the upper verniers that lead to the wings. I've been so busy, but I hope I can do this soon.
  14. And for those asking, it still has the rainbow like canopy in perfect condition as well.
  15. I'm selling my Yamato VE-1 Elintseeker. Price is $280. It is in excellent condition. I've never put it together, but it has been opened, never transformed. I am on the SSL list, and have been for a long time. I can provide shipping prices for anyone interested. I accept Paypal Friends and family, or add 4% to total with shipping.
  16. Well, the other thing is, I do want to frame a couple posters, but then, what do I do with the rest? I guess I can maybe come up with a way to make an interchangeable frame, but gah, so many and never enough space. I think my wife would kill me if I decided to put every poster up on every wall (and ceilings, too).
  17. I started getting into collection other posters that weren't B2-A2, but at this point, I decided to stop. Due to the fact that most of it is in books and easily be seen without having to shell out a wad of cash, I've decided to stick to my original poster sizes I started off with. Now, that doesn't mean I won't jump at the chance for extremely rare ones, but I think most of the ones I've wanted out of those sizes are already acquired. I'm still looking for a few that I really want in B2 size, but having a decently large size of them already, I'm in no rush anymore. The last one I got that was of the rarer breed, was a B2 of Macross Delta that was more of a promo poster given at Wonderfest in either late 2015, or winter 2016. I had Kawamori sign it at AX 2016, and when he saw it, he was quite surprised and commented on how he was happy to see people here interested in the show (it was airing at the time). I should post it, but I'd have to go into a room full of collectible stuff to find it. I'll get it out eventually.
  18. I'm building the one I have at a snail's pace. Mostly to make sure that what I do paint, stays painted, but the parts I have put together work very well, and seem quite solid. I've actually mixed the professional plastic with some of the WSF stuff, and it seems to work well. Where I need more detail, the Professional, and where I know I'll be moving a lot of parts, the WSF. I have to find where I put the gun though. I was finished with that part.
  19. That looks great. Is that a paint you put on it, or is it a dye? I looks very uniform throughout the parts. I can't wait to see an update on your work. I started doing a lacquer primer on all the parts. Unfortunately, the dye didn't work as well as I wanted it to, so I just decided to sand the parts a little thinner, and then focus on a really good paint job free (as much as possible) of friction. I did decide to do the MtR version, although, still not at 100%. I'm not big on the character who pilots it in the series, and because I don't know it, I'm not sure yet. Maybe I'll do a second version, one with the early VF-9 Cutlas grey color. I had to order yellow and orange lacquer paint so I can mix and then pain the yellow and the red parts, so when that comes in, I'll start on the actual painting. Until then, just got a bunch of parts heavily coated in white primer to sand down and smooth out over several times. So far, the cockpit, and the leg section and head are ready for the colored paint. No pics at this time.
  20. I guess I'll have to check mine tonight. Is it a pin in there, or a screw? If it is a pin, if it can be removed, a slight sanding of the pin with an 800 grit sandpaper may fix it. If it is knurled pins, that will tell you right away what needs to be done. I only transformed mine once, and it has been in the box since then, so it should be good (fingers crossed).

    Macross figures

    I just purchased A and B, and will probably get the C version when I'm in Japan next year in June, but I think A and B are different enough to get the feel of the sculpt well enough. I can't wait until they show up. I'm kind of a huge Sheryl collector, so oddly, for that character, I go a bit out of the way.
  22. Heres how the dye came out. Mind you, I used putty on spots, so those are the off color sections, but it does work.

    Macross figures

    Got a set already. Just waiting for shipping. They are all well sculpted, but I'm interested in this as well...
  24. I just got the gun pod and landing gear, along with v.4 of the canard. I must say, I'm very happy with the gunpod. The fact that the handle collapses and the fin collapses is really great. I ordered it in black professional, and it looks ready to go right away, but I just primed it so that I can do cleanup on some parts. I'm looking forward to this being the first part I finish of this kit. I did manage to get some of my resin dyes and managed to mix a red with warm water. I soaked a couple of the WSF parts in it, and they seem to be a solid red color (minus parts I patched and smoothed out. I think this might be something to look into if you buy the WSF parts. I'm going to try this with some of the other WSF parts I have and just sand them before putting them in a dye. If this works, this may be the way I go. The dye I used is called So Strong, which can be bought through Smooth-On. They have red, black, yellow, brown, and all sorts of others. I'm going to test this out longer.
  25. Looks great, man. Your painting skills are on point. A long time ago, this inspired me to do a Yamato unassembled kit combining the Alaska base green, and the MtF style color scheme. I never started, but this brings it back to life for me. Again, great job.
