This looks amazing, you need to primer it or just applied the paint? Also any suggestions on strengthening the hip joints, cause mine will not hold the legs up with the SAP on.

Your cases are awesome, my favorite is the VF-0s though! Did you finish the Candy-paint Nora ?

Thanks... and no tragically Nora and her SV met an ugly demise... reworked my candy technique though so a MkII minus the rippling issues and shadowing problems I had the first time have been eliminated.

Next candy VF off the ranks is the 30th Anniversary VF-1 and VF-19. Started assembling them this evening.

if a light coat of primer and the same paint makes the joints stronger

Your paint job is a great upgrade for that thing. Your English is pretty great too.

My first resin "kit" is primed! It was only 4 parts, but these things are tough...  I wouldn't take on a larger kit without more practice.

No problems. 

Ok so the extra layer of paint gives it grip, much like what happened with my Redemptor Dreadnaught. I'll keep that in mind, right now she is packed away until I get my house resorted for a few display cabinets.

Anyone with a gimix vf1 in battroid mode, even broken, want to swap for a 1/72 hasegawa f/a18 kit, unbuilt with no decals, and a brand new in the bag vf19 master file, yell out. I need the left front shoulder cover. New kit had two rights!!!

Cool, "little" is only the scale, ey?! B))

well i always wanted to make the island diorama, and this is the smallest sdf-1 i had on hand... 1/8000

the 1/15000 and 1/20000 are way too small to make a discernible macross city and military base... (with any details atleast) :wacko:

and its my first diorama ever so.... ;)

NZEOD - Those buildings are cool for a diorama! That will look awesome. What material are they made of?

NYANKODEVICE - That will be a cool diorama and I think you chose a good scale. The 1/15000 is too small to go into detail with. - MT

Another interesting SDF1 diorama would be the one at Mars Base where the ship is surrounded by lurking Regults.

A little diorama in the works

What key frame background art are you basing this on? 

I've gone back to my old process for figure painting. I'm glossing everything before masking. And instead of masking fluid, blue poster tack doesn't peel the paint. The imperfect edges get hand paint touch ups at the end.

Yes that would be a very interesting one to do... adding dust clouds around the SDF-1 as its trying to take off...

but are there any good pictures of that Mars base where you see all the base?

Some kind of plastic. Its pretty crisp in the detailing and has tiny tabs and slots to lock it all together. I'm really surprised at just how simply they assembled and how solid it all is. not bad for $15

this past week its been the 25th anni vf before hitting the 35th this week.

The nightmare of decaling pinstripes!

20171107_070159_zps7au6rysn.jpg

Yeah I know I do things backwards from the norm, I paint the airframe, decal it, detail and wash it... The blue used is a Tamiya fine primer - Alclad II Gloss Black Base - Alclad II Chrome - Alclad II Candy Blue. Then it will be sealed in Alclad II Gloss Klear Kote then detailed, washed and matted down.

Shown is the pilot I'm using in the display from Shapeways printed in the new Black High Definition Acrylate - That material is AMAZING!!

This one grinds inexorably onward.  It seems like a lot of work for such a small update.  I scribed in the main undercarriage doors, filled in some details and added others; for example, there are now panels behind the wing root cannon ports (armament bays?) but  removed the venting behind the sensor boom.  I also filled the areas where the wing root cannon covers connect to the fuselage and then re-scribed them.  I did this to make that area less "bubbly" and more streamlined.  I hollowed out the two little air intakes I scratchbuilt from sheet styrene so they look like, well, intakes.

RCS thruster blisters visible, one intake and new scribing at wing root and wingtip visible and antenna fairings/vanes/blisters shaped:

Other side view, slightly blurry but you get the idea:
23244561_1123397954462250_25785430521877

Underside.  You can see lots of RCS blisters, new scribing at wing roots, the other intake, Aves undercarriage doors and the new exhaust assembly with its gaps filled:
23376303_1123397934462252_37343919188239

Sensor boom and cannon fairing with their scribing.  They were a bitch to scribe:

Engine nozzle and masked off areas that have been sanded, polished and preshaded/painted black:

That's all I have for now.  Comments and criticisms welcome, as always.

I wasn't sure how much you could improve on the Tiger...

but WOW! she looks incredible so far ZOmBe! I love the chin pods... reminds me of the BUFF, only slim and trim like a fighter should be... and the asymmetry is also a nice touch. 

Can't wait to see it all gussied up with some paint and livery.

Anyway "UNIVERSAL SOLDIER" film custom figure 1/12 scale UNISOL GR-13 aka Andrew Scott played by Dolph.
