Stampede valk. Either you love it or you really love it! Build completion 60% Hello everyone. I've seen Majestic's 1/48 custom and I've never seen any other builds other than the 2 in that thread. I always wanted one in 1/60 scale so I decided to give this a try. This is the build up. Edit: To save everyone's eyes from pic spam in just gonna put the pics in spoilers. First thing I did was look for reference material. I couldn't find too much info or lineart. I found some courtesy of Mr. March's Macross Mecha Manual and used those as reference. Next thing I did was take some pics of a 1/60 for reference. I'm using a VF-1A Kakizaki. Something like these. I just took measurements with a caliper to get the general idea. I then started to sketch up some ideas and used plastistruct to build some mock ups. Here I built a mock up of the right shoulder missile pod and used my VF-1J as the model. As Majestic pointed out, lineart vs what you got to work with is a huge pain. I'm not gonna lie, doing it this way is a pain which is why I give Majestic and the other custom builders here props for the skills and patience. I'll add to this more as I go along. Okay so after doing it like this for a couple of days and losing my mind, it dawned on me that I had an unbuilt Prusa MK2 3d printer I bought a few years ago and never got around to building it. Now looked like a perfect time to crack it open and give it a spin. After a day I finished building the printer. I also decided to give 3D modeling go so I used Fusion 360 and crash coursed it enough where I can make the basics. I was thinking about converting a S/S parts set but the more I looked at the line art the more it looked like I'm gonna have to make my own from scratch. I then started to print out the general parts and then tweaked some of the dimensions to see if it fits. Here is one of the rear booster housing:
