  1. Out of nowhere Bandai is bringing a new action figure. I couldn’t find a thread for the show, so I figured I’d start one in case other items appear like new kits other action figures or just a rerelease of the series.
  2. I saw these kits for preorder the other night and got curious and checked out the first 4 episodes. The last 2 are premium. Seems that aliens sell humans an obsolete piece of machinery cheap to us humans and we take that tech and first start using them for labor the of coarse we eventually arm them for combat. The frame has a mind link with the operator, so the controls are non existent. Each episode is only about 12 minutes and seem more about world building than character development, but the combat scenes are fun. each kit has the basic frame but with additional armor and weapons along with a pilot figure. They’re 1/35 and would probably work really well in modern military dioramas. If my measurements are correct they’re only about 3 inches tall though. I guess there’s also an issue of Hobby Japan that has a kit of the frame as an added bonus.
  3. Captain’s Log: Friday, October 10th. Southern-Cross garage kits are among the rarest of the rare, assuming there are any out there at all. A while back, I was approached by a fellow MWer about mastering the patterns for the Bioroid drop-ship. It seemed like it would be a fun project, so I gladly accepted. So as with all projects, I begin by drafting some basic technical drawings from which I can carve parts. As is to be expected from line-art of that by-gone era, the different views of the ship don’t even correspond with each other, and this case is a particularly bad one! So after a bit of back_&-forth with the client, I finalize the diagrams and can now begin making a mess in my workshop! I had a block of modeling board, but the edges were rough so I had to mill it down to create some square edges. The block is so large that I had to get « creative » just to be able to work on it (pic 1) Now I have drawings, style-sheet reference, and a block of modeling board: watch me turn this block into a finished set of masters in 30 days or less! (pic 2) Pic 3: the block is so large that it just barely fits under the bandsaw at maximum clearance: problematic, but not insurmountable. We will take the long road… Pic 4: I use my trusty drill press with a cutting wheel mounted. Since I can’t cut all the way through such a large part, I settle for notching the cut mark all around the part. Pic 5: time to break-out the hack-saw and manually cut the board! It’s a long, tedious process, but it must be done. Pic 6: the cut came out a lot rougher than I would have liked, but no worries. Back to the drill press, this time using a grinding stone to level the surface of the cut and make it perfectly flat. Pic 7: there were still some nasty saw-marks in the board, even after the grinding. To avoid removing too much (very expensive) material, I just use some polyester putty to cover the scars. Easy-peasy! Pic 8: now that I have smaller parts, I can cut them on the bandsaw to remove excess material and begin to shape the parts accordingly. Pic 9: after some grinding and sanding, the parts are starting to come along. I will likely want to fiddle with some of the details as I go along, simply because the line-art is so loosey-goosey and there’s leeway for tweaking to get the coolest looking shapes possible. Stay tuned!
  4. i might aswell make this an actual thread... i have have started my very first Diorama, and its is the SDF-1 situated on macross island, its will be in scale 1/8000. the SDF-1 model im using in the diorama is a Bandai 1/8000 storm attacker kit, i converted into Cruiser mode, i had to remodel some of the parts since they where not to scale or was simply the wrong shape, changes made to parts where: Main cannon (gave it more bulk and more details) Main Cannon connector (changed shape completely) bridge boom (made from scratch) bridge (needed separation and details) main thrusters (looked to much like feet, changed shape and added details) the diorama rough sketch is pretty much done, need more roads though.
  5. Hey guys, i should have started here, but here it goes anyway. I am selling my Perfect Grade Wing Gundam Zero Custom 1/60, and here is the Auction http://www.ebay.com/itm/Perfect-Grade-Wing-Gundam-Zero-Custom-1-60-Assembled-/282692368299?hash=item41d1c737ab:g:rbIAAOSw5FZZzO4H This action is for the Perfect Grade Wing Gundam Zero Custom 1/60, assembled. I assembled this many years ago, and just left it stored in a box. If i remember correctly the inner skeleton is made out of metal. I did not put the wires together for the light up eyes and chest, but they are in there, somewhere. The pilot was not painted, but you can see him when you open the robot's cockpit. There is minimal yellowing in the rubber feathers, but the rest of the model and the wings are white. These rubber feathers have posseable/bendable wires inside of them to help posing them. This model is huge and sometimes a little difficult to pose, and the huge wings makes it more difficult. I'd recommend getting a stand to help you with more dynamic poses. Every finger in the hands is articulated. double elbows and double knees are amazing, and reveal detail. I sold my house, and I live in a smaller place. I was planing to finish this model, but now I have decided to let it go. It took 36 hours straight to put it together as it is composed of 670 pieces. You can still take the armor off the model to see the inner workings. No glue was used in the completion of this model. Model has never been played with, so everything is as new. This Model include the hilts, which can be store in the base of the rear wings. The sword beams, in green; and the two beam riffles, which can combine together.
  6. Hey all, This is me offering a third possible re-release of my 1/48 crab line of models for your consideration: the Blueberry Crab (Inbit Gamo doppleganger) As with previous offerings, I would need a 10-order minimum (payable up-front) to kick the project off. If you're interested, let your typing fingers fly! Basic kit price per crab: $205 CAD (about $165 US) -Price per kit shipped (US/Canada): $240 CAD -Price for 2 kits shipped (US/Canada): $461 CAD -Price per kit shipped (international): $263 CAD
  7. I'm baaaaack! And this time I plan to reissue the King Crab (Gosu doppleganger) kit, with your help. This is the biggest and most elaborate of all the Inbit kits in my line, a true King Crab! Just as with the original, it will have a translucent eye and canopy part as well as a detailed cockpit ready to accept aftermarket pilot figues (not included this time). Just like the Pinky, the kit is free-pose. Price would be $300 CAD (about $233 US)+ shipping with up-front payment required and I'd need a minimum of 10 orders to get the ball rolling on the project. Shipping prices are as follows: -$26 CAD per kit shipped in Canada or the US -$48 CAD per kit shipped internationally. Any takers?
  8. Hi everyone, long time no see! I was wondering, since there's a minor revival of MOSPEADA with the upcoming Legioss toy, if anyone would be interested in acquiring some of my Space Crab kits? My thoughts would be to re-issue the Pinky Space Crab [Gurab] to start with. I would basically need 10 orders minimum to get the project going. Update: Exo has graciously offered a 1/48 scale figure to compliment the Pinky kit, so each Crab will come with one. THREE CHEERS FOR EXO!!! Price would be $134 CAD (about $99 US)+ shipping with up-front payment required. Shipping prices are as follows: -$23 CAD for up to 2 kits shipped in Canada or the US -$45 CAD for up to 2 kits shipped internationally. Any takers?
  9. Hey guys, I thought I'd do a little shameless self promotion. I wouldn't normally do this but I think you guys would like the giant mecha and fantasy subject matter with a little idol fairy. This is a VR project "Crowe: The Drowned Armory" that I've been heading up with a tiny crew of about 10 people and we've been busting our humps getting it to a great spot for a spring release. More details to come when the press kit hits. I hope everyone likes it. - Nghia
  10. It's not quite Macross, but Patlabor the Fanzine is now available. Featuring nearly 50 pages of art and text, including work by MW'ers Renato and Exo! if you're a fan of Patlabor or just like reading about old robot cartoons, it's worth picking up. You can buy it here: http://www.magcloud.com/browse/issue/1180585
  11. Have the following resin kits for sale: -Volks 1/100 Knight of Gold V3 original resin kit. Certain strategic parts carefully removed from sprues to prevent (further) damage. Kit arrived from Japan with a broken toe, which I repaired with brass rod as it is a load-bearing structure. Will not show once painted, but an important detail nonetheless. Asking $300 + shipping. -Volks 1/100 LED Mirage V3 original resin kit. All inner bags are still factory sealed. $300 + shipping. -SMS 1/60 Last Junchoon: enhanced version of Neograde original resin kit with added details and clear parts not found in the initial release. All inner bags are factory sealed. $190 + shipping. Please PM me for questions, and thanks for looking!
  12. This is all told with plenty of detail in my blog: https://eosmusashi.wordpress.com/the-yf-19-project/ so feel free to check it out! I'll try posting the WIP from the beginning here and share the steps I've taken to make my favorite mecha plane LATEST UPDATE:
  13. Hi guys! Spring has sprung, and with that comes spring-cleaning. I’m offering up the master-patterns of some of my best MOSCATO HOBBY kits from both Macross and Mospeada for the other kit-makers out there who would like to continue the legacy, as well as for those who enjoy my models. Most of the logistical work is already done for you: the master-patterns require little (if any) prep-work prior to molding and some components come with sprue gates already attached. You get the original instruction files, print-ready box artwork if desired, promotional pictures, and for the mechs that have specific markings you get print ready artwork. I also stand ready to offer tips and techniques if needed, so these are pretty much no-brainer projects. Thanks for looking and feel free to PM me if you have any questions. Prices are in Yankee bucks Macross: 1/72 Regult-all 4 variants (standard w/cockpit interior, light missile, heavy missile and scout) $4400* 1/72 N-Ger $3000* MOSPEADA 1/48 Pinky Space Crab $1000 1/48 Blueberry Crab $1600 1/48 Baby Crab $1000 1/48 King Crab $2200 1/48 Buster (Legioss) $3000* 1/32 Legioss $5000* * = includes camera-ready decal artwork
  14. Welcome to the Macross Delta Mecha/Technology Thread Guildlines Please limit your discussion of mecha and technology to this thread. This thread is not for discussing individual episodes or the story. Do not cross post. Please limit your discussion to mecha and technology seen in Macross Delta. Do not post any links to episodes or full soundtracks anywhere in the forum. This thread contains spoilers about mecha. Don't say we didn't warn you.
  15. I translated another Miyatake interview, this time focusing on ORGUSS. I put this up on the front page, but the auto-link discussion thread that is usually created ended up being buried in the "Collectors" forum for some reason. Anyway, check it out: http://www.macrossworld.com/kazutaka-miyatake-interview-from-megahouse-variable-action-hi-spec-orguss/
  16. Hi guys! As promised, I am putting forth the final pitch to gauge interest in a 1/48 Mospeada Legioss soldier mode (hereinafter referred to as Buster: Henshin Robo) resin model to accompany the Crabb army which I made a little while ago. I would also make all three head variations: Blue, Green and Red to allow for more versatility in the collection. Kit would be free-pose type (build it in the desired pose only) although certain joints will allow for minimal re-posing. Decals and markings: I will do the artwork, which I will then offer as open-source so that you can download and print as you see fit. This is going to be quite a bit more of an undertaking than most of my previous models, simply by virtue of its geometric complexity so you'd be looking at a $292 Canadian price-point (about $222 US) plus shipping. I would need a minimum of 30 orders to get the ball rolling so ask yourselves: is Buster right for YOU?

  24. I kinda got at this in my AVF Upgrade thread, and it's probably been on here at least a thousand times. But what's your favorite Macross Mecha of all time? I'll kick it off, I love the YF-19/VF-19A. It's got a dangerous sensuality to it. It's what my dad would call a sexy airplane (he's an old F106 driver). I like the forward swept wings, and the way it becomes an awesome robot. I asked mecha, so for you destroid lovers, you're welcome too. The destroids are interesting, being a battletech guy, I have a soft spot for them. I'd actually see a use for destroids, especially when given the existence of Macronized Zentradi elsewhere in the Macross universe. Variable fighters are expensive and there are only so many of them. I think destroids are highly underrated. What about y'all?
