  1. Old Thread, retired: This thread is for MACROSS-specific toy purchases. Non-Macross recent toy purchases go here:
  2. Long time coming on these 2 models and trying to figure out decals for the Elintseeker on that scale. Still needs detailing. One is a conversion and the other a 3D print. Pictures are not in best light Now I am looking for a 1/144 GBP armored Valkyrie
  3. Anyone anticipating the 1/144 delta line? What are your expectations from tomytec, or delta valks in this scale or how far would you invest in this scale..... 1. It didnt occur to me before but looking at the mock-ups of the VF31, the turrent seems to be molded seperately in fighter mode. Whether that means the back turret can detach or not is debatable i guess..(I thk not cos they dont do those things in this scale..or do they?) 2. Looking at battroid lineart, the overhead turrets looks quite detailed. Whether or not they can reproduce it remains to be seen... 3. A SV draken at this scale?
  4. Finished building the Tomytec Gimix VF-1A. Took me about 3-hours to complete (1-hour each night). Like all of the prior Gimix aircraft releaes, this is a very impressive kit. Lots of fantastic detail. Most parts simply snap into place. Glue is needed to put on the wheels, missiles, pylons, and forward fuselage antennae. The forward fuselage antennae is microscopically small. Be very careful. They can easily get lost. My advice is to use superglue (cyanoacrylate) and quickly get them attached. First some pics of the VF-1 on the tarmac Now for the comparison to the F-Toys VF-1A. Granted, it's not a fair contest. One costs 500 yen, the other costs 3,000yen.
  5. Here's a review of the old 1/144 VF-11C from Bandai.
  6. Plugging my review of Bandai's 1/144 scale VF-17 Nightmare. Enjoy!
  7. This kit didn't go together very smoothly - despite starting to lay down paint still on the sprue! For starters, the kit is molded in dark blue, and any light colours on top of that required multiple coats. I ended up losing some of the finer details due to that. The upper arms are extremely fiddly. I ended up having to permanently glue the upper arms, as the pieces kept popping apart when the elbow joint was rotated! Some of the other joints are stiff, but that might be due to the aforementioned paint problem. I ended up using super glue to affix the thrusters on the back of the legs and backpack, and the gun and its support. Only the backpack thruster went on smoothly. And once everything was finished painting and so on, I realized that there aren't decals for the stripes on the forearms! So, another round of masking, painting, and cleaning up. >.< At least the panel lining went smoothly (though most of it didn't remain in the grooves in the feet). What are your thoughts on the Christmas colours? The green was much brighter than I expected (though, it should be perfect for the Sound Force VF-17 I'm working on). I'm still working on the Zentraadi figure that comes with it (the kit's gimmick is that you can either make it either stand alone, or only the upper half of the figure inside the torso of the Nujaderu Gaa. Here he is reenacting one of the famous scenes in SDFM. Not quite a good match for the Bandai 1/100 Battle Pod... But a good match for the Bandai 1/144 VF-11C, and HG Gundam!
