  1. From the album: Minecraft Macross

    Random exterior shot. This is the section just beneath the bridge
  2. From the album: Minecraft Macross

    This is in the component directly beneath the bridge. I'm trying to build each part of the ship separately, to add to the realism of design when the interior is completed. At least, as realistic as blocks can be...haha. That stuff on the bottom is a fountain, and a tree, with some lights. I was experimenting with what the actual lighting will look like when it is completed.

    One half of the "chest" area. Still in progress

    Looking forward towards the main gun booms from inside the ship.

    Just to get a sense of depth... This is standing inside one of the booms of the main gun

    Just an aerial view of the main gun WIP
  7. HI Everyone, I am new here, but not new to the Macross World. As Im typing, still trying to figure out how to insert picture in the topic. But anyway, I think I found it. This thread is about the recently released Chinese design and made Macross SDF-1 SuperDeformed version. I guess it doesn't have a license from Bandai, is it? I am not sure whom the license is belong to nowadays. But any way, it is named as MAKUROSS SDF 1 EARTH UNION SPACE FORCE SUP'DREADNOUGHT CLASS SELF-DEFENCE SPACE CITY. Shew.... that is a loooooong name. Little background I know of the company Master Made, but the product is really nice, I fell of it the first time saw the advert. My fiancee just bought it off the internet for me for about 80dollars. And it arrived in two days. I have to say, I don’t own any of other brand’s or types of the Macross SDF-1 models. Since this is the first one, I want to share it with you all. It is surprisingly light for its size, there is another thread on the forum talked about the product before it came out. This version is model after the “Do you remember lover” movie version, so is the colour, It is a bit dull at places, but also very military like over all. It has a rap around sleeve with artwork on front and scene shots on the back. Now, showed you the out side box. it is time for the inside. It has two halves hosting the parts and main body. Minimal decorations all around. It has compact three trays of components. The first two trays are stack one on top the other, the base, the connection parts, two small stand base, two VF battle droid figures(VF-1S, VF-1J), exchangeable legs for both, an individual arm arm/space stations which I forgot the name, and the propulsion parts for the other “arm”. According to the advert, only the early release packs the VF figures as special offer. But since it is front China, god knows it is real. The tray on the right houses the SDF-1 itself, without the right “arm”… The instruction sheet is behind the backdrop of the left box. Very simple, and later on, I discovered there are some steps missing from the transformation. The base, in my mind, is one of the best thing in this product, because it isn’t just a plain base, but also has city structures moulded to provide a scene. Its about the size of a palm. Simple and sturdy connection. Two small base for either the arm stations or the VF figures. and 4 differently length steel rods to hold them in the air. Very thoughtful and effective, I think. Now, the VF themselves. They are cute, no other words for them, typical SD style figures, they are holding gun pods! they are two bended legs for each, so they can be posed like the poster. The details are very good, for SD size. The head turns, arms and legs are on ball joints. The arm station has two moving part, I assume they are the thrusters, though they can only move up and down slightly. Decals are the simplified version but added a lot of life into the part, and colour separations are quite good. The Main event, I think it shall be called! The fortress itself. Before we start, I would like to share something, though, thinking about it, it is something people say before the main event, isn't it? For dramatic effects! I am saying that because, I haven't thought of anything to share. Ah, I am a fun of the Macross series for a long time, since the first American dubbed version came out and imported to mainland China, that was in the early 1990s, and somehow fell in love with it just so instantaneously. You all know at the time, the production skill of such animated series are terrible for today's standards, but I didn't care, and I wanted the VFs so badly, I actually broke one of my friends birthday present of a VF-1J, I think. It wasn't intensional, and not out of jealousy, just accident. It was one of the early versions, and it was quite big, think about it now, probably because my hands were small then. You could put one of those GI joy figures into the cockpit. Few years later, another friend give me one of the small versions of the VF-1S with a broken backpack, the thruster bit with vertical fins were missing. But it didn't matter, I loved it and played with it for a long time. Unfortunately, like most of the toy of that age, it is lost after my family moved to a another home. Still, I literally dreamt of it once, where I almost could have grabbed it in my hands and it could have materialised in reality. When I woke up..... No, it isn't there. I was really disappointed. Anyway, you are here to see the main event, here it goes. Apologies for the pour quality of the photos. Since it is a SD type, I can't really say what scale it is. Later on you will see a size comparison with a beloved ball point pen in its cradle. The over all effect is, once again, cute, the massive head is very prominent, but the details are amazing. The joints of the canons on the back and shoulders are ratchet joints, so the can hold position on their own. Though, like in most cases, one is slightly tighter than the other. The "feet" moves just like those bigger scale model, only front left to right. Legs movement is almost none existent, but Master Made did it any way, very very slightly. It is still really cool though, or rather really cute. I know I probably not suppose to use such word as cute to describe such serious object, but it is why I wanted it in the first place. Not too expensive, quite big, something one can put on the work desk as a display piece. And it puts a big smile on my face every time I look at it. I think as the battle droid form, the arms have the most movement. Those antenas can move up and down, the shoulders rotate 360 it the canons are out of the way. Arms can lift up to 90 to the side. Rotates at the elbows. The battle stations have limited range of movement because they are connected with a rather large ball joint. Oh, you have to remove the thrusters from the back of the them so they can be attached to the elbow joints. The head, em... it doesn't really move, just a fraction from side to side. But look at that those details. It shows the owner of the Master Made really is a fan of Macross. The visor is transparent, and it has details like the reflector display panels mould in. And one can see the bridge structures inside, admittedly, not very clear, but still. Shame the visor can't be removed. Or can it? I don't know, haven't got the chance to try yet. The sensor arrays on either side of the "head" can be removed to accommodate the canon firing position. You will see later. The weapon, yea.... THEY ARE BIIIIIIG, almost the same height of the entire body, and again, the details, incredible. They can be slide to the middle to become the ship's forward sections. and can be put down aside of the head to assume firing position. I don't think I will show the transformation, just to save a bit mystery for those want to find out for themselves. The ship mode is not as impressive as the battle droid mode, I think, primarily because it is flat and horizontal. However, one only need to change the angle of view to see the gigantic form of the massive ship. Not mush can be moved here, but there is one little details that stands out, though one still need to look for it somewhat. I bet you all remember in the movie where Hikaru Ichijyo and Lin Mingmei conducted their legendary conversation of encouragement and declaration of love! The big space viewing ports are their as well. Covered in the same colour transparent plastic as the visor. Only they are way too small to see anything meaningful inside. The overall effect is still amazing, and the "head" is very visible . Impression-wise, it feels a bit too much aft-wards. God in the details, and this piece of plastic has a ton. Since it isn't exactly that expensive, I'd say it is worth to own. This pretty much sum up the topic/review, whatever you want to call it. I love it and I hope you enjoyed or will enjoy it too. A few shots of size comparison and my terrible effect shots-_-!!! Until next time, Cheero!

  9. Hi guys! This was my last project finished in 2014. Nupetiet-Vergnitzs is a 1/8000 resin kit that you can get from Scale Solutions. For this kit I experimented with Molotow Paints, wich are spray cans used for Graffittis. I realy like these paints, It will be my option for base color on large kits. But, in the other hand, if I would have used acrylic paints, I would have been able to make bigger chips. Anyway, I'm happy for have discovered these paints. SDF-1 is the 80's Arii version, a little hard to find these days, but not impossible. I hope do you like it!!
  10. Well, this didn't take nearly as long to finish as I thought it would. Here's the 1/4000 scale SDF-1 Macross, DYRL version resin kit from Yellow Submarine. No decal work, everything painted. That's why I though it would take me a long time, especially with the ARMD's.
  11. I have a pretty nice MasterMade SDF-1 box that I don't need. Includes all inserts. If anybody wants it it's FREE! Local pick up is fine but you'll have to come to me in San Bruno or Belmont, CA. I'm willing to ship it to you but you'd have to cover the costs of shipping entirely and understand that if USPS destroys the box in transit I'm not responsible for it. The sleeve is pulling away from itself in one corner where it looks like someone tried to squeeze the inner box in a little too firmly. I'll post a pic later if someone hasn't already snatched it up.
  12. Hey everyone, Well, as the title suggests , looking for one Studio Half Eye 1/100 transformable resin VF-4G recast. Must be complete, with all screws,pins, vacu-formed canopy, etc. (Like the Hobby World Depot ones.) Price has to reflect the nature of the item, (ie, it's a recast....). Do not want the original one, too expensive especially if I mess up the build :-p (it can happen...) Cheers for letting me know if you do, with pics and price. m(_ _)m. Much appreciated!
  13. Master Made have let me know they are going to produce Makuros Add on pack. The add on pack will be consist of multiple SD figures. One of the confirmed SD figure is "Not Monster"! Rest they didn't share with me yet. I expect this add on pack to extend the play ability of Makuros. Build your own little fleet, or collect your own desk top Makuros SD figures. Enjoy the news! Picture will be up soon. Picture is up! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Lunar-Toy-Store/411482228959458
  14. Hello all! I've been searching the net for countless hours trying to find a decal set for a 1/3000 Macross by Yamato... I can't believe with all the detail they went into on this great product, they didn't have the numbers on either of the ARMD's... I imagine one exists out there somewhere, as Yamato released a 1/3000 model that you completely construct, right? Anyone with any info on this, please let me know, thanks!
  15. MW'rs, I am looking for a Yamato 1/3000 SDF-1 that I can call my own. I would love one in the box, but of course loose and used is perfectly fine. I just ask no damage and all the accessories be included. So come on folks sell my your extra one. Thank you. Raya
  16. Takara Dourgram 1/144 Collection Series - 08 Eyevan DT-2 "Bromry" Bandai High Complete Model 1/144 Heavy Metal L-Gaim Super LM-MK-I
  17. Encountered this amazing build by carefuldriverhongkon. at first i thought that this was not a lego model, but after a few seconds of watching it, i realized Oh My God!! It really is made of Lego. Its that amazing and of Engineering marvel that it rivals the model manufactured by Yamato... and oh... it transforms from ship mode to Battle mode too.. Heres the link
  18. Man, I don't want to sell this... But...Baby on the way.... SDF-1 TAKATOKU 1/3000 SUPER NICE, just look at the pics. Stickers are unapplied. Missiles and stuff are still on the tree. See the pic with the bubble wrap? I've kept it stored like that for the past 15 years I am located in the US $875 - shipped in the USA $910 - shipped overseas I accept - Money Orders, bank transfer, or credit card (over the phone). You can look up my references on ebay: boarepublic Thank you!
  19. Hello Everyone, While I'm waiting for some last minute parts to arrive for the build up of the 1/2000 scale Macross from Yamato, I thought I'd do a little busy work and get this project officially started. The battroids stand at an impressive 1/4" while the valks measure 5/16". Most of the key characters mecha are present(in TV paint shcemes). Now onto the ARMDs!
  20. I recently finished up on Yamato 1:3000 scale SDF-1 'boxs-o-parts' model kit and after putting it together, lightly detailing it with paint and some decals i find that I like it the way it is and have no interest in putting on the resin parts or the photo etched embellishments. So i'm sell'n em along with the rest of the decals and the glowy stickers. Here's what you get: 1-Full set of Resin 'damaged' parts in unopened bag. 1-Unused sheet of Photo Etched embellishments. 1-Leftover sheet of Glowy Stickers (see picture for how much is left, which is definitely enough to go crazy with) 1-Leftover sheet of water slide Decals (again, see picture for how much is left, it's mostly use up but does include A.R.M.D flight deck numbers) See attached pictures for more information. All for $45.00 which will include cost for shipping anywhere in the Contenental United States...including Florida. If you are not in the USA but really want them, lets talk. I maybe swayed to do business with you. I take payment though Paypal only.
