  1. Recently got back from a hitchhiking trip here in Japan, and on my first day came upon this poster at a rest stop outside of Tokyo.
  2. Okay the idea behind this thread is simple, users tend to ask questions that are, for better words, either easy to find common knowledge or sound pretty funny. You don't want to look stupid and we don't want to have mod a bunch of little topics. Examples: "Whose that green haired lady?" "What happen to Rick hunter?" "Did Minmay kiss her brother?" "Is this video from this country a bootleg?" "What's with the Zentradi elf-ears?" "Is there an official answer to <insert story="" or="" production="" trivia="" here="">?" "Where can I find a copy of this <insert product="" here="">?" "When will we see <insert product="" here=""> come out?" "What are this things?"/"Where are these things?"/"Who are these things?" "What <insert show or episode> did <insert event or item> show up?" and other newbie or short questions like these post them here. Ground rules It's only for newbie-type and short question/answer type questions about Macross. When someone post a simple question here hopefully one the more experienced posters will tell the newbie the answer. It's Question & Answer-format only. Nothing more. Newbies tend to be lazy and ask questions about everything. If you can point the newbie to the source it's better than just telling them the answer straight. If you see a newbie question about Macross somewhere else direct them here and their other topic will be closed/deleted. Search is a great tool. Useful links The Macross Compendium Mr. March's Macross Mecha Manual Newbie's guide to the differences between Macross and Robotech The Newbie and Short questions thread - Toy Edition Newbie thread, episode 2 Newbie thread, episode 1
  3. I have a feeling that the Clans from BattleTech would make for better antagonists for Macross than the current Macross rogues lineup because they are humanity (and for a Macross cross, they would incorporate the children of the Protoculture such as the Windermerans into their group as well) that due to interstellar distances, lack of resources on their home worlds and isolation managed to evolve into a culture completely alien from their progenitors, making them a fresh take on the human-like aliens in fiction that Macross is fond of. This would also play into the culture theme that Macross has as the Clans are biologically human (or Zolan, Zentraedi, etc in this cross ) but due to the cultural drift involved in interstellar colonization and slowness in travel due to the length needed to prepare for fold space travel , they evolved a culture that would be considered alien to mainstream culture in the New United Nations government such as the Clans' honor code (zellbringen, bidding down and issuing batchalls.... you get the idea ) being considered a violation of common sense by the rest of the NUNS but evolved due to the relative lack of resources in Clan space. Moreover, it allows for the original idea of music being a tool of culture that is used to bridge cultural/communication gaps between different groups , more similar to that in Frontier and SDF Macross rather than in 7 or Delta where the music theme is used to handwave things such as Sprita or treating Vars Syndrome. Here, music would be used to bridge the gaps between the cultures of the the New United Nations Government and the Clans but military force still has to be used to stop the Clan Invasion once enough knowledge of how the Clans work is gained from them.
  4. 60cm in length! From Google Translate:  "In commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the airing of "The Super Dimension Fortress Macross", this item, which is currently being planned, is a three-dimensional version of the TV version of SDF-1 Macross. It is said that it has achieved complete transformation from a ship to a strong attack type. Of course, it will be an action figure that can reproduce the impressive scenes in the play, such as the main gun firing and Daedalus attack poses." https://hobby.watch.impress.co.jp/docs/news/1456796.html?fbclid=IwAR2Z8YSA00iT032s3ONx7LRYrvGjl-MdCVPY-RMRx7Vu8KAJTdMCTkjnSBw
  5. As promised ill be starting the ok im using a Tamiya Modellers Knife, Metal Ruler, adhesive lacquer, syringe w/ blunt needle, Cutting Mat, tweezers, cyanoacrylate Thin (Super glue), a dull needle or similar, and a pair of scissors for rough cutting. the syringe is for easy application and dosage of the glue of cause it doesnt have to Tamiya any model knife can be used, in the end its what you feel most comfortable with. now the super glue is not a must... but i find it very useful in certain situations! the needle is for bevel the paper on foldlines...(if u have absolute no clue as to what i just wrote, tell me and ill post a video of it) now first up, a little fun fact: These are in scale!! and remember: to those of you out there who is also building this model, ask me if u have any trouble with this build... or if you feel that i havent explained a troublesome part, thoroughly enough! what i did firstly was to scan the pages from the original magazine and scale them up from A4 to A3 which changes the size from 50 cm in length to 75 cm thats why it seems so big on my cutting mat, just an info so you dont get confused ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Ok here we go! First some simple parts should be straight foreward now this bigger piece, its important to start glueing the big flaps first, to make sure they lineup with the panelines. a friend of mine could not figure out how the next big piece would fit together, it actually to me a couple of glances.. the need to be seperated first this is it for today.....
  6. There is a sketchup file floating around for the MAC MK II monster. I've been working on it to make it 3D printable for a while. Then about a month or so ago, grimmindustries on thingiverse put out an articulated version. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1461419 (note the other monster pictures in wip 2-21-16 was from Macross VOXP) I had printed out a prototype of the original file for the torso in ABS on my Raise3d N2 printer. many print issues, the door ended up breaking off. I was working on fixing it up. grimm put out his version and I tried rescaling it down but it wasn't reliable enough to get the scale correct. the parts didn't fit together right. I discovered though I could import the STL files back into sketchup and rescale it in there. Layed out the parts and printed them off. Far cheaper then shapeways. Ended up having to super glue it together because the parts were still too loose and I had to use a dremal tool on a number of the joint sockets to make them fit. Made an 80mm base for it. I laid out a battle force of the various factions I have stuff for to take some pictures. Did a Monster verse BT as well to show the scale of it to BT mechs Close up of it before I painted it. and painted. It still has many issues which have to do with how my printer is printing it, I'm working on enhancing the torso section by splitting it in two. The joint parts in his model don't fit in their sockets completely. Not sure if it is an issue with my printer or his model. I am going to add details below the loading door and add in the front access door in the front. Here is how I split the original in two to fix it,

Completely new production super space-time Length about 700mm As the main exhibition of this special exhibition, a completely newly produced Macross ship's automatic transformation robot with a diameter of about 700 mm will be exhibited. By using the robot control system "V-Sido" of Asratec Co., Ltd., the space is produced with the Macross ship body that can be automatically deformed and the production image that matches the deformation. ● Planning and supervision: Hidetaka Tenjin ● System production: Wataru Yoshizaki (Asratec Co., Ltd.) Macross Broadcast 40th Anniversary The Super Dimension Fortress Macross Exhibition to be held @ Takarazuka City Tezuka Osamu Memorial Hall July 1st (Friday) -October 24th (Monday) On October 3, 1982, the TV broadcast of "The Super Dimension Fortress Macross" began at 2:00 pm on Sunday, which was unusual for an animation broadcast frame at that time. "The Super Dimension Fortress Macross" is planned and produced by BigWest, set and designed by Studio Nue to which Kazutaka Miyatake and Kenichi Matsuzaki belong, and the power of staff centered on Artland led by Noboru Ishiguro is concentrated. It is a completed SF robot animation. The creativity of the young staff stands out, such as the 22-year-old Shoji Kawamori appointed as the mechanic design of the leading battle mecha "Valkyrie" and the 22-year-old Haruhiko Mikimoto as the character design. "Three elements" throughout the series: [Realistic transformation and action of the variable fighter "Valkyrie"], [Triangular relationship between the main character and the heroines], and [Song that leads to the end of the battle] Was established and received a great deal of attention as a work that built a new innovation in SF robot animation. After the TV broadcast, "The Super Dimension Fortress Macross" became a big hit with the production of "The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love?" (1984), the first completely new animation for the theater in the animation industry. Since then, it will continue as the "Macross" series, changing the place of announcement to theatrical animation, original video animation, TV animation series, and celebrating the 40th anniversary of TV broadcasting in October 2022 while providing change and universality. This exhibition includes the main exhibition of the robot [SELF-TRANSFORMING SDF-1] that incorporates the automatic transformation of the space battleship "SDF-1 Macross", which is the main mechanic of "The Super Dimension Fortress Macross", as well as the "Macross" series. Setting materials, illustrations, and three-dimensional exhibitions of successive VFs will be held. Please look back on the 40th anniversary of the "Macross" series and think about new developments in the future. Exhibition overview
  8. Two weekends ago I decided on taking some pics of my DX Chogokin VF-1J using the iconic pose from the intro and the 'eyecatch' segment until it becomes a full blown photo-taking of the actual footage and decide on making a short stop-motion for it. Hope you guys like it. Enjoy!
  9. Repainted the standard Regult and Heavy Missile Carrier. It's how I envision they would look like if the Meltrandi did use them in DYRL.

    MMD x Macross

    Picture by みせたがり. Hello! I'd like to introduce you to a little project series I'm attempting to start! As of late, I've come to really enjoy making 3D Macross pictures using a program known as MMD (MikuMikuDance) It's a freeware program that was originally made as a super basic 3D platform meant to be hand in hand with the Vocaloid singing software. However, over the years MMD has become quite advanced, and many models that aren't just moe Vocaloid girls are compatible with the program now! MME (MikuMikuEffects) makes it 10x easier to load the image with effects and make pictures look great! Anyone can download MMD here and I'm more than happy to walk anyone through how to use it if interested. As you can imagine, I'm utilizing the program to bring us some Valkyrie action! Maybe different Macross scenes in the future! But I have one issue, I hope some one ...anyone would be willing to help me with? I don't have very many Macross models, Variable Fighters or otherwise. Most all of my models I use are made by みせたがりP (Misetagari-P). His Uploader: http://ux.getuploader.com/9566587/ His Nico: http://www.nicovideo.jp/user/9566587 His Twitter: https://twitter.com/ZxcvbnmPark To my knowledge he has made: VF-0 SV-51 VT-1 VF-1 (Vermillion Platoon colors+ others I haven't looked at yet) VF-1J&S (Unsure of colors) VF-1 With strike and armored packs Queadluun-Rhea Regult Ex-Gear (Empty so I can apply it to human models I have) Macross Quarter VF-25 (Came with a bunch of colors. Not sure how many yet) VF-171 and 171EX VF-27 YF-29 VB-6 Vajra Other Macross models I have found from various sources that I can use in my project! YF-19 Isamu: 相良P VF-19 Fire Valkyrie:相良P Sheryl and Ranka in various outfits from the movies and TV series: Pon School Uniform Alto: Pon Ai-Kun: Pon Destroid Tomahawk: SKG Destroid Defender: SKG Would anyone know of any more places I can find 3D Macross models? I know there are plenty of 3D model Macross threads here on the forums. But any compatible with MMD? I would LOVE a VF-17 or VF-4 to help illustrate scenes from FalconKPD's Fan comic(Which you should TOTALLY read!!!) Anyway! I'll post all of my pictures I have thus far for this project as replies. AND YES! Requests are open! But please note I'm limited to what みせたがり/the other modelers listed have made... so if there's any other places people can think of how to acquire more MMD Macross models... let me know!!!!
  11. I had some free time and decided to post some work I did. It was hard trying to sort and clean these all out. I wanted to share because I know alot of guys do modelling and have a hard time sorting out Hi-Res images of Macross Companies. I managed to find the majority of the FONTS that corresponded with the Company's Lettering. I apologize if it's not 100% accurate I used the Highest Res Scanner and cleaned them as best as I could. I've including some other MISC as well. I'm uploading all the companies including the fonts. Enjoy! https://www.dropbox.com/s/fh42lu89t5c3rof/MAC_Company_Logos.rar?dl=0
  12. This was something I whipped up in another thread for someone so I thought I'll post it here and start my own thread of wallpapers since I'll most likely be creating more later. Enjoy. P.S. Requests are more than welcome. http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/uploads/post-2-1098220089.jpg
  13. Hi everyone! I decided to make a single thread in which I can keep people appraised of my future projects, links to my previous works, a place to post your MOSCATO HOBBY kit builds, and pretty much everything else related to my works. Links to previous projects will be added to this first post over time to help you find my older stuff. 1/48 Pinky Space Crab build: http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/topic/40117-mo-suu-pii-dah-inbitoh-in-148/ 1/48 Blueberry Space Crab build: http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/topic/40692-mo-suu-pii-dah-inbitoh-in-148-part-deux/ 1/48 KING CRAB build: http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/topic/41380-mo-suu-pii-dah-goh-suu-in-148/ 1/48 BABY CRABB build: http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/topic/41380-mo-suu-pii-dah-goh-suu-in-148/ 1/48 BUSTER build: http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/topic/42190-148-mospeada-legioss-solider-alpha-battloid-kit/ FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS The following section deals with frequently-asked questions. It is advised that you read this before sending me a message/question, as it has likely already been addressed. If you don’t receive a reply, it’s because the subject has already been covered here in one form or another. Please be respectful of my time and attention, and I will show you the same courtesy. Q: hey bro, you’re a really good modeler! I have an old RX-78 kit that my grandma got me a few years ago, can you build it for me? A: I charge $40/hr CAD for my work. Building even a simple plastic/resin kit to any degree of competent finish requires at minimum 20-ish hours (and usually much, MUCH more) so you’ll have to decide if it’s worth it for you. I quote projects based on an estimated completion time, and require a 20% deposit. NO exceptions. This applies to my own garage kits also. Q: do your kits come with assembly/painting instructions? A: yes! I don’t print paper instructions, but rather create .jpg files of the instructions which you can download, re-size and print as needed. This minimizes paper waste and transcends the resolution limitations that most printed instructions are bound by. Q: can you send me a copy of the 3D files you used to make XXX model? I really want to 3D print my own. A: How would you like it if I came to your place of business and asked you to work 1-2 weeks for me for no pay?… That’s what I thought. Secondly, all my models are mastered by hand, using only basic computer-generated vector templates, so there are no 3D files to speak of. Q: duuude, do you sell pre-built/painted versions of your models? A: no. Q: Your work looks cool, how much do your kits cost? A: there are photographs of all my currently-available kits, their names and prices in the PICTURES section. Please take a moment to look them over carefully. Kits come unbuilt and unassembled. Prices do not include shipping, which is determined based on the serviced used and your location. Q: I don’t see the kit I want listed. A: that means it’s out-of-production and therefore not available. Q: will XXX kit ever be available again? A: I generally take a public poll to determine interest before re-issuing a given model. If there’s sufficient demand, I may issue another run, but no guarantees. Garage kits are like wild flowers: here today, gone the next. If you really want something, grab it while it’s available because it may never be issued again. Q: how do I order models from you? A: simply send me a private message regarding the model(s) you’re interested in, along with your name + shipping location. I will generally post shipping charges for the most popular destinations publicly, so please consult that info first. The rates I quote are for trackable services. If you agree, we can proceed to payment. When making a payment, please be sure that you provide: -your full name -full shipping address -phone number (for customs) -the name and quantity of kits ordered I get a lot of orders and I can’t always remember who ordered what, so help me help you. Q: how long before my order is shipped? A: in-stock items will ship within 3 business days of the order. Pre-orders, by their very nature, imply that much of the fabrication process is as yet incomplete, and may take several weeks. If there are important delays beyond the stated estimated timeframe, I will make a public announcement. Q: do you offer combined shipping? A: yes, of course! Especially when you order several, dissimilar items. Q: I live overseas and the shipping is expensive! Do you offer cheaper shipping? A: I quote based on trackable shipping methods. There are cheaper alternatives, but they don’t have tracking/delivery confirmation. If you select this option, I assume no liability for the delivery, intact or otherwise, of your order. Q: I placed my order yesterday but it hasn't arrived yet. Does my package come with tracking? A: I generally ship via trackable service, but I don't always provide the tracking info right off the bat, simply because I have a heavy workload. Delivery times can range from 5 days to 5 months, depending on the location. If your package doesn't arrive within the alotted time suggested by your local post office, send me a private message and I can provide the tracking details at that point. Q: I really love XXX mecha, I think if you made a kit of it, it would be really popular and sell like crazy! Can you make it? A: depending on the complexity of a given design, it can take anywhere from 100 to 500 hours to scratchbuild a set of masters for a given model. The investment in time, materials and capital are significant. Therefore, I will determine for myself whether a given mecha is worth making as a kit. You are at liberty to make suggestions, but ultimately I decide if I’m going to make it or not. Q: can I go asking around to see if anyone is interested in you building XXX garage kit so that I can get orders for you to build it? A: NO! If you want to gather orders for a specific scratchbuild project that I would be working on, consult with me first! It’s all too easy to be impulsive and misconstrew terms, make bold/unrealistic promises and use verbage that can lead to very real legal problems. I’m not opposed to you doing the leg-work to gather interest, but consult with me first and I will determine the specifics that you can cite for interested parties. I reserve the right to disavow/blackball anyone who does not abide by these guidelines and assume no liability for said conduct.

  16. Warning: I know that this has some kind of 'fusion' flavor to it due to the abomination at the bottom, but hopefully it passes since it has most of the original series design in it. I'm posting this just for fun, but let me know if this is not allowed for this board. Ok so I got a pen tablet earlier this year and I have been working on this on and off over several weeks. It's not polished since I'm new to digital art and yeah, I did trace over screenshots to make the work faster. My main goal was to just get it done as practice for familiarizing myself with the pen tablet. Most of it was done on Medibang Paint with resizing done via paint.net program. I got the idea after I saw some Macross comic art in the miotd site, but those were in Japanese and I couldn't understand them.
  17. What do people think? Many artists are doing retro 80's sound nowadays, so it does have it's appeal?
  18. Where do you think Macross can go next after the second Delta movie hits theaters? What can Shoji Kawamori even tackle in a future story? I mean the entire question why music carries such power has been answered in full thanks to the fold receptor concept tying everything we previously knew, and the Protoculture will almost certainly remain a complete mystery. For me personally, I'd like the next protagonists to be complete music haters, for the story to feel far more inclined towards the mecha like how Delta leaned towards the idol side. The music naturally would need to be there, but I'd rather another SDF arrangement, where music becomes important roughly halfway through the series rather than from the start like 7, Frontier and Delta were. Preferably do something like a major "opening up" arc where the protagonist realizes his bullheadedness towards song. Adress the question of the New UN and the growing corruption. If it is in a reasonable timespan, bring back Berger and Epsilon. I want that fella's motivations cleared up beyond the usual "war brings profit" stuff I've seen all too many times in fiction. Like why is he even interested in Protoculture stuff anyways?
  19. Not sure where to put this. For those who's interested, there will be a live Macross Modellers 5th Plamodel Contest show over Youtube on July 3, 2021 at 6pm JST.
