  1. Happy New Year 2022, y'all! Hopefully everyone had a happy, restful and safe holiday season, because I'm about to be a pain in your butt... Or rather, wallet. As promised back in Spring of last year, I'm offering the Biopsycher Bioroid (hereafter HEMORROID) as a follow-up kit to last year's 1/48 BIO LLOYD. This kit, unlike the Bio-Lloyd, will include a cockpit ball, and will include both pistols featured with the Bio, but with corrected details for the officer's version (Thanks to Ted E.) The kit will be available in 2 versions: -HEMORROID/BUG FACE only (no sled) -HEMORROID/BUG FACE W/HOVER-SLED Please take note: the BUG FACE parts will only be available for the pre-order window Looking to get 30 orders, so who's in?
  2. 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.
  3. G'day plastic hackers and resin bashers! Man am I glad to be back and I thought I would share this commission build for one of the board members. But a quick history on the kit first. About 10 years ago Captain America sculpted his first Tactical pod complete with interior. It was a thing of beaty and blew away the old Imai/Bandai plastic kit which was prett scarce at the time (as well as scaling out at around 1/100 if I remember correctly). With the first run sold out the good Captain went on to produce the rest of the line up with several reissues over time. In late 2015 I negotiated with the Captain to buy a number of Patterns, with the "Legults" being one of them. We have been working on reissuing them this year and are currently waiting on decals before we can ship everything out. The Build: This particular kit is being traded away in a deal to a toy collector as an assembled and painted example ready for display. I have already completed cleanup of the parts so that I could take some imagery for the new instructions I am compiling and tacked it together enough to get some photos. Here is what it looked like when I started today: And here is what is looked like a few minutes later: I'll be going back and fixing up a few blemished and getting it all in primer of the next couple of day so keep your eyes peeled Cheers until next time, Brett T
  4. Hi This is my very first post in this forum. So let me present myself. I live in Sweden and has been hooked on the Macross world ever since I saw Robotech all those years back when it aired on TV. This though, is my first real model build of a macross related mecha, but I have a lot more of them in the stash. I was lucky enough to get hold of the captains 1/48 Mospeada kits. And I started straight away with building the pinky crab, clearing the work bench of all other ongoing projects. My plan was to build in some articulated joints, but my order for them did not arrive in time so I just drilled and pinned all the parts instead. I'm not going to play around with it anyway so it's no big deal. All the major parts pinned and attached in a desired pose. Some final adjustments needs to be dona att the final assembly after paint.
  5. Here I leave some images of my latest armed model of Mospeada, the Baby Crab of the master Moscato. I also made some modifications on the cannons of my Pinky Crab. Here are the definitive models! Enjoy
  6. Hi guys, some time ago I started the assembly of Moscato's pinky crab. Really a great figure, i enjoy the armed, although the paint scheme was really a nightmare to mask and paint with the airbrush. To be able to leave it articulated i add 12 points of articulation using the set of ball joint of the company hobby base. The weekend I upload photos of higher quality, the guns are drying with their last layer of varnish, so I can upload photos of the finished model in the morning. I hope you like it! regards
  7. Hello once again! Following on the success of my previous releases, I'd like to propose a re-issue of my 1/48 resin kit BABY CRAB (Mospeada Inbit Eager doppleganger) as my next project. The kit would consist of: -2 Baby crabs: one with legs & beam guns, one space version equipped with flight booster (no beam guns.). Base price $134 CAD -Price: $163 CAD shipped in the US or Canada for 1 set, $302 CAD for 2 sets. -Overseas: $186 CAD shipped for airmail. If you require a shipping method w/tracking, please contact me for specific rates but be warned: the fees are heart attack-inducing! I'd need 10 committed orders to go ahead, with payment due up-front. Who's with me?
  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. Hello All, since the admins have re opened registration I thought it would be best to sort out an account. In short my wife and I have started our own little label selling kits - the first of which are patterns acquired from the man himself Captain America. This is something really cool that we are really enjoying and have a lot of great ideas for stuff we want to produce. However for the moment we are offering (all in 1/72): - Regult (both with and without cockpit) - Regult Missile Carrier (Light and Heavy) - Regult Scout - Gnerl (with Pilot) All kits come with printed full colour instructions and decals. We feel quite honoured that John has chosen to sell his exquisite sculptures to us and have been working very hard to make sure that we do them justice. I have attached some images below but if anyone has any questions just fire them off here, or contact us at returntokitform@gmail.com or through our FaceBook page. Regards, Brett and Chrissy (The RTKF Team)
  10. I wasn't sure weather to put this in the fan works section or here. But I decided here since I know what is inside It's a one off advent calendar that we made just for a bit of christmas fun. At any rate I can't wait for December 1st!
  11. Hi everyone! Good news for all of us, someone who runs a company named Return to Kit Form bought the masters of the most desired and iconic kits from John Moscato, The Regult, all variants, regular, missile launchers and scout, so they are back right now, molds are being done and the list for pre-order is open for all regults, so you can order yours right now, here is the link, the more you guys join in, the faster we get those kits in our doors. https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=1871495339767907&id=1664024260515017 We've been waiting this chance for years guys, there won't be another chance.
  12. Aaaand back to Macross! Maybe. So as I had stated in a previous thread, there were some outstanding Macross subjects still needing to be done, namely the Zentradi battle suits. I'm offering this subject as the next contender in the 1/72 series, which would have the following characteristics: - based on the TV series design -can be built with cockpit open or closed -in-scale with my previously-released Zentradi soldier, so will be quite a large kit (22.5-23cm tall!) Due to its size and the complexity of the sculpt, this would NOT be a cheap offering at 355.00 Canadian ($285 US approximately) but it would be... Glorious!!! As you have all put a $200 CAD deposit, there is the $155 CAD outstanding balance on the kits as well as the shipping fees which are as follows: $30.00 CAD up to 2 kits for USA/Canada $72.00 CAD for international shipping. Also very important: please add an extra 5% to the total to cover transaction fees if there are any. Generally PP will let you know before you send if there are fees and ask you if you will pay or make the recipient pay. I will commence casting on Monday once I test and group the molds for optimum casting.
  13. 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?
  14. Here is my WIP of a Moscato 1/72 Destroid Spartan. Thanks to Viceland for selling it, Gabe Q for the instructions, and Mr. Moscato for creating the kit. This kit is an interesting challenge. I've never worked with resin before, and I've had to really pull out my bag of tricks: Dremel tool, 3 different types of Xacto knives, sanding sticks, and side cutters. These are the first set of pieces that have gone through initial cleaning and sanding. There is a lot more work to be done. The waist piece had a little too much Dremel, but that actually ended up being a good thing as the center torso and waist fit together almost perfectly. I'm also glad I followed some advice I found about working with resin kits: wear a respirator. I was not prepared for the amount of dust these pieces would produce, even with wet sanding. I hope to have more soon!
