  4. So I'm a fan of the recent Ace Combat's damage model system called "Steel carnage". I had a few Hasegawa models lying around and I thought, "why not blow them up in Photoshop?". So that's what I did. I'm going to do more of these in the future because it's fun making metal bleed! Follow me as I post more of these on my tumblr and Deviantart! http://the-valkyrie-hangar.tumblr.com/ http://kylefalconkpd.deviantart.com/

  8. I don't know how many of you may be following the Star Citizen development, but one of the awesome features of this soon to be outstanding game enterprise is the ability to mod on private servers. The game itself is a spiritual successor to the Wing Commander and Privateer franchises, but it does real physics simulations of space fighters (including complete, modelled, real-time vernier thruster systems!). This would enable a team of modders to recreate variable fighters (which are best detailed) on a per component level, and Macross is one of the few source materials where there is plenty of detail in the designs. I am currently modelling a picket ship of my own design (shameless plug: https://forums.robertsspaceindustries.com/discussion/144856/aesir-class-multi-role-deep-space-vessel-chassis-wip), which is a rather ambitious and perhaps foolhardy thing to attempt alone, but the process (and obvious inspiration of Macross) has me nostalgic for the good old HW mod days, and whilst the Macross itself is probably too big to build, and the variable fighters perhaps a little too hard to make variable, I can easily see VF-1's with FAST packs duking it out in multiplayer games. More of the game here: https://robertsspaceindustries.com/about-the-game Has anyone considered this already/dreamed about it?

  10. Hello all, My friends, I am looking for the Yamato 1/60 VF-1 "No Paint Kits". If anyone has an extra one or lost interest in building this, please shoot me an IM. I'm looking for the VF-1D, VF-1J and the VF-1S. Thank you all. raya
  11. Hey Folks! So I'm working on a super customized BANDAI Variable VF-1S kit & I'd like to get the Jasmine Model Cockpit set for it as I already have the set for the 1/72 Vf-25S & its gorgeous! http://www.jasmodel.com/PRODUCT/272003/272003_E.htm Does anyone have a set they'd be willing to part with or know of somewhere I could still pick one up? I've tried many different places, Evilbay, HLJ, 1999.co etc...seems like its kinda hard to find! Any clues would be super appreciated! Thanks a bunch!
  12. Hi I'm new here and used to be an aircraft scale modeler. (Any ARCers here? ) Here is my customized Yamato 1/60 VF-1J. I resribed tons of new panel lines and rivets according to Hasegawa injection kit level, and also sand off the combining line and ugly screw holes which makes it so toy-like. (Yes it's a toy but I prefer to think it as a perfectly transformable VF model.) I also added some low-viz US NAVY stencil decals and the famous Skull leader logo decal on it. I did order one Yamato 1/60 VF-1 assemble model kit which was announced to be released in October, but after I customize this one I just canceled my preorder of the kit. I found the paints could never stick hard on the kit surface because the plastic is all made by ABS, not the normal injection kit ones. So I gave up to paint it thouroughly but just some place that I can still play with it after painting without chopping off the paints. Hope you like it! Cheers, Yufei Fighter Mode
  13. From the blog maxharddrive.blogspot.com I set out to make a 3D model of the 1/55 Ban Dai Valkyrie. I succeeded. I had a perfect toy size replica that needed to be scaled up to human size. Before I added the cock pit I mocked up a 6' pilot in the seated position (back then he looked like the Minecraft guy) and scaled up the VF model until he looked like he fit. The size I settled on was 63 ft 10 in long. This was years ago, it did not occur to me to look for the official specifications. I did look up the specs for the F-14 and at 62'9" my VF has 13" on it. That made sense to me. Bigger. Badder. Now. Look at a model of the star of the movie "Top Gun" the F-14 Tomcat. That pilot is not tom cruise, this guy is 6 ft tall. You see how it looks like the cockpit works? It looks like a pilot will fit and a RIO too. There is room for the landing gear and everything. Look at the VF model at the specified "official" length of 46 ft 7 in (14.23 meters) compared to the F-14. At first glance I would buy that there is a guy in there and that this thing can transform into a giant robot. But look at the pilot in this scale. It doesn't look like it works. He barely fits. The pilots feet and legs end up in the wheel well. We still need room for a seat (maybe two), instruments, landing gear and robotics. I am all for advanced miniaturized technology but this doesn't work for me. In my tests it just looked ridiculous and unrealistic. Take a look at the VF at F-14 size 62 ft 9 in (19.1 m). It starts to look better. The cone sizes start to match up. The pilots feet aren't on the floor. There is even room for my super awesome cockpit! In my measurements and test many, many years ago I arrived at the length of 63 ft 10 in. Have a look. The cockpit and ejector seat details are in the picture and it looks like it works. Compared to the F-14 in this scale the VF-1 looks more imposing , more bad ass. It looks like it can kill some aliens. Interestingly the wingspans also matched up at this length. Has this been an issue with anyone else making a 3D model? I can't imagine any of the other Valkyrie toys would do much better scaled up to 47 ft. Other specifications need to be reexamined, Weight and Thrust to weight ratio. There will definitely be new measurements when the model transforms to ger-walk and battle-oid mode. Well there you go. I put it out there for discussion. Should I petition congress to make it official? No. They can't get anything done. Internet gets stuff done. Revised measurement; 63 ft 10 in length 63 ft wingspan 24 ft hieght

    Shapeway parts

    Macross World, I am looking for VF parts made on Shapeway. Has anyone use Shapeway? What parts have you picked up?? I appriciate any help thank you. Raya
  16. Hello Macross World, I need you help once again. I am looking for "Super and/or Strike" Armor for my VF-1s. Does anyone have an extra set they are looking to get sell? I'm not picky on the color or if there's some discolaration or maybe even a little damage, just as long as it still attaches. Thank you again, I look forward to hearing from you all. - VF-1 1/55 (classic bandai) - VF-1 1/55 (Robotech MPC, yeah I know, not real Macross Valks but you know) - VF-1 1/60 (Yamato) - VF-1 1/48 (Yamato)
  17. When pilots get promoted to squad leaders, do they just upgrade (complete overhaul, optional new paint) their VF-1A to -1S models or is it a complete new bird? It just had me thinking because I read in Wikipedia today: The Mihoshi Academy on board the Macross Frontier has a VF-1 Valkyrie fighter atop the roof. It is not just any VF-1, however - it is Ichijyo's first mount as leader of the Vermilion Squad of Skull Squadron. It looked like a VF-1A, but I can't be sure, so did they just take his original VF-1A (the one that was beaten to $hit during his Minmei rescue) and restore it? Because the VF-1S he had at the end of DYRL looked exactly the same except the head. not sure if it was a completely new plane, or just upgraded parts (other than the head, whatever else there is that comes with the S models). Same goes for Max, because his 1S looks pretty much the same as his 1A. In SDF Macross, I guess they all got new planes because Max's 1A was completely destroyed, Kakizaki died, and Hikaru's 1J was pretty beaten up when he took over Roy's 1S....curious, wonder why Max never got a 1S in SDF Macross....
  18. The 52nd Shizuoka Hobby Show will soon be held. http://www.hobby-shizuoka.com/index.htm The Macross related items may be handled with only Hasegawa and Bandai. Arcadia is not on the list. The first 2 days are only for the buyers and the press. The news about the new industrial products will be come on May 16th. As far as I know, Hasegawa's VF-1 new paint, VE-11 Thunder Seeker and Bandai's VF-1 may be shown at the venue. I will go there on 18th and see those new products and many completed goods by the amateur modelers. Looking forward to seeing VF-1 Riders' booth and Kanto Sakemochi-kai's one. Aside from the Macross items, the Yamato 2199 and Girls und Panzer ones may increase this time.
  19.

Join us for Macross DYRL and Macross Plus (movie version) and let's Macross out!! http://new.livestream.com/accounts/3310250/events/2110667

  22. Some of you (hopefully) noticed that I recently got the book VF Modeling Manual. In there, they give a description on how to do a recessed vernier for your 1/72 kit. As I am building an old Imai Gerwalk now, and trying to pep it up a bit, here's what I did to make the vernier. Start by getting yourself some 5 mm plastic pipe. I'm using Tamiya. No special reason for it being clear, that's just what the hobby shop happened to have in stock. Next, take the part you want, and drill a 5 mm hole (obviously, on the Hasegawa kits, just remove the original casted vernier area. Cut a small piece of the rod. I did around 4 mm long. Then, smooth out the rough edge. Now, here is where I'm deviating from the Modeling Manual plans, since I've got some extra parts from Jasmine Models lovely VF-1 PE set. I'm using the round pieces in the lower left. Glue the round piece onto one end of the short tube. Draw a mark on the tube for how far you want to insert it into your kit. You only want to go 2 mm or so. Put it, and glue it. Once the glue has set, trim off the excess, and sand it flat. Put on the top piece, and you're finished! (actually, wait to do this until you've primed and painted. much easier to get the inside black with no cover) Now, if you don't have the PE set, use a small disk of plaplate (5 mm, natch), and a small strip over the top of it. You'll also want to get a circle scribing template (probably around 6 mm) to go around the outside of the hole.
