Destroid Armour Waxer

Destroid Armour Waxer (3/15)



  1. This is an ancient thread, but in case someone is still looking: I have one of these for sale.
  2. Update: sold. Although I have been a member of MWF for a long time I have never sold anything here. I have been cleaning out my house and realize I will probably never return to the unbuilt model kits that I have sitting around. Most of my kits have been claimed by my sons, but I thought I should offer up this one for sale in this community. I bought this 1/72 ES-11B Cat's Eye resin kit by Neptune Models from Starship Modeler almost exactly six years ago. It is brand new in the box, I have not done any trimming or building of any kind. But, IMPORTANT: There are two pieces missing, and they were missing when I received the kit. The missing pieces are: One of the main gear wheels (there are seven and should be eight), The v-shaped pylon that supports the radome There's nothing I can do at this point to supply these pieces. If it were me I would probably use sheet styrene to make the pylon, and build the plane gear-up. Or perhaps @captain america or someone else with this kit can recast the pylon piece. I'm asking $150 plus trackable postage to your destination. I am near Boston, USA. Here are pictures of the actual kit that I am selling. This is a picture of the pylon piece that is missing. Thanks for looking.
  3. It's shockingly difficult to find a large version of the (color) image I am thinking of. I am pretty sure the one here is also in the DYRL movie program, which I can dig out and scan it if it is helpful for you.
  4. VF-0 work. I'm not awfully concerned about making this one perfect… rather, I'm using it to improve my skills before I build the "priceless" kits.
  5. There is some debate. Here are a couple of threads that I referred to when I built my Hasegawa VF-1 Battroid recently. (Also, I referred to the Hasegawa VF-0 instructions.) http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?showtopic=8832&p=160300 http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?showtopic=14219&p=278720 Pics of my build are here http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?showtopic=35953&p=1228031 — my arrangement agrees with the pictures you posted above.
  6. It is common on gunpods starting with Macross Zero, but was not depicted that way in the TV series or DYRL (no gunpod markings were ever shown on screen).
  7. I was working on a Lancer (mine is 1/72) also during my holiday break. The fit on the parts was not super great, but I think it will be nice when finished.
  8. Catching up after being away for a while… I had to check back in the history of this thread because I wasn't sure this was still a paper model project! It's really amazing, and I'd never think it was made of paper after looking at the photos. I'm curious to know how it holds its weight and whether or not it is very fragile? I'd imagine it would be easy to accidentally buckle the shape if you held it in the wrong place. Is there a lot of internal bracing necessary? How much does the model weigh right now? How much did the paper craft book weigh before you started the model? It would be interesting to know the ratio of paper to other materials. Thanks for sharing the details of this build! It's really great.
  9. Yes, it's to make it look more like the TV show. The top of page 88 says approximately: Because this kit is the movie version of the VF-1, its nose is long compared to the TV version. In order to correct this, you need to cut the tip and adjust the shape. It's technical work, but you should try it because you can make a big impression just by adjusting the length of the nose.
  10. Nice wheels, I agree they are an improvement.
  11. Are you keeping track of the cost of filament and other materials?
  12. Thanks. I was so eager to get some pictures up that I rushed these a little bit and I'm not super happy with the depth of field (too shallow I think). I'm really inspired by pictures like those in the VF Modeling Manual or this http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?showtopic=39983&p=1076104 that look like the model is part of real life. I think with my photos above the shots from below are the ones that look the most realistic. Maybe if the weather cooperates I'll try to take a few more.
  13. I watched the series with my 10-year old… after a few episodes he was singing the theme song around the house. Since he's used to watching better-produced shows, though, it was a little hard to hold his interest at times. Overall we really enjoyed it and have a good memory of seeing it together, but the animation quality is so uneven. And man, Hikaru is such an idiot.
