Destroid Spartan


HWR MKII

Recommended Posts

Well here he is the little green bastard, or the red headed step child. Regardless the second most unique destroid in the macross universe. I say second because the monster came first in development and there is still nothing like it.

Overall an excellent kit. Some troubles with removing the pour stubs carefully but that was no biggie. The only other issue i had was the decals didnt like the thinner i used in my wash and fell apart as i was removing excess wash. So i decided to let that issue guide me in the finish of the litle bugger. So heavily chipped and worn it is. Im glad the 2 "Caution this model totally kicks ass" decals survived and are still legible though.

Heres some shots of it by itself and with the rest of its family of macross ground attack mecha.

That is some great lookin' work. I'm lovin' the Destroid Dream Team...

To think, I have every single one of those kits unbuilt. Ah, the potential...

You know i have been wondering if i am the only one who has bought and built ALL of the new destroid kits. I have yet to see anyone post finished pics of them all. Neptunesurvey finished his spartan i know. But i dont know if anyone else has all 5 of them.

Still there is a 6th....im still bugging John to make the Cheynne from Macross Zero. It is in line with the Tomahawk series. It shares some leg design and is like a prototype mix of tomahawk and defender. Plus who can resist 2X 30mm Gau 8 cannons in the arms.

The reason I haven't built mine is that I just don't have confidence in my skills yet. I don't want to ruin a kit that's worth a lot of money. That, and the fact that I don't have the time right now.

Blah, blah, blah... I know, excuses, excuses...

amazing stuff HWR, your work always leaves me in awe, still wondering how can you managed and store so many kits

His place is like the end scene of episode 1 of X Files where you have the Giant warehouse full of confidential boxes :) Subsitute them for Macross kits and Military kits and you have the idea. :p

No prob John. If it werent for you 4 of these destroids wouldnt exist. Have you given any though to doing up a Cheynne 2 now that it is a mainstay mech in Macross Frontier?

As I had tried to say back on the SM forum before Rob so rudely spoke on my behalf and promptly locked the thread, I'm certainly not opposed to the idea if I can find enough people willing to buy one... And provided that Hasegawa doesn't beat me to the punch :ph34r:

Wow I didn't know I was rude about it...... Many times it had been requested and you always said no or didn't answer....
