  1. I made this a while ago, but just finally joined the MW forums, so I thought I'd post this. Here's a link to the Imgur album on the build. Here's a link to the STL files.
  2. I never liked much the static models for the dark side. So I get one, build it and then destroyed part of it to do this:
  3. Now that more than a few of us have 1/100 items, I wonder if people have started putting together dioramas for them, in particular Macross city scenes. I'm purposely *SKIPPING* the Bandai Armored Factory. Part of my inspiration is member ron5864's awesome 1/60 scale scene: http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/index.php?app=gallery&album=56 So: What are you guys working on for your 1/100's? Do you know of paper craft versions of buildings such as the Nyan Nyan restaurant?
  4. Here's some progress on my 1/100 Armored Factory. I'm working on a Bandai re-issue kit and an old Revell Robotech kit, I'm restoring the one I had as a kid - so x4 gates in total. For the colour scheme I'm mostly following the original Arii box, but with the yellow cranes from the Revell box build. I plan to add lighting and a roof later.
  5. Do you want to add lights or special effects to your model or dioram? Are you on a ramen and bologna budget (tight budget), but want to light up one of your models or dioramas? I recently came across a cheap, but VERY versatile way to do it. If you find one of these light wands (see photo) or similar LED product, you can accomplish it. What’s so special about this "patrol wand"? Instead of just “blinking” or staying on, it has four multi-colored LEDs with SEVEN modes to help animate the lighting of your project. Once again, there are probably other toys or products that will do this, but I found this one for only $1.00 and the circuit card is slim and easily used in a lot of models! Mode 1: All on. Mode 2: All blink together quickly. Mode 3: All blink together slower speed. Mode 4: Chase one after the other and back slow. Mode 5: Chase one after the other, one direction only. Mode 6: Chase one after the other quickly (directional strobe in the opposite direction). Mode 7: Chase one after the other, blinking twice before going to next color and then backwards. “So how does this help me?” you might ask. If you want to make landing lights inside of your model or on your runway, #5 or #6 will work depending on what speed you want. Just push the button to get to the mode you want. You want to put random blinking lights on your SDF-1 mode #7 will work, or LED’s put close together you can get a staggered “KITT effect” as on Night Rider. The LEDs are multi-colored, but can be replaced with white or amber LEDs for your purpose and coupled to fiber optics to get light where and in what sequence you want it. I did find a white LED version, but can’t find it again. For those of you in America, I got mine at Target (pronounced Tar-Jhay if you want to sound snobby). Sorry, couldn’t find a part number to order, but they are up front with the cheap $1.00 items. For those of you overseas, look for the picture on-line under “LED wand.” Here is a video link (not mine) of what the modes look like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UC9ANtEQygA An online source (there are MANY) is: http://www.banggood.com/Wholesale-Multi-Color-7-Modes-LED-Flashing-Light-Glow-Wand-Sticks-Party-Fun-Supplies-p-56850.html This is just an inexpensive suggestion to help you get your lighting done without breaking the bank. If you have similar inexpensive ideas, please share them!- MT
