Hi-Metal R

Recommended Posts

I ended up cancelling my preorder for Max back before release, deciding that I needed a consistent scale for my collection, which has worked with the upcoming M&M Arcadia release.

Tonight I caved on the Messer figure, I really like the way the color scheme works on it, more so than on the 31F (being less than half the price also helps)

I really need to stop coming to these forums so much....

I want to ask when you are working on city diorama do you feel the urge to put on a Godzilla costume and stand over it and roar? :lol:

Well, actually...  ;)

Is it in 1/144 scale?

More-or-less, yeah.  Most of the individual kits are designed for N-gauge train sets, which are 1:150 scale.  I originally started getting them to complement my HG Gunpla...

I wasn't expecting Hi-Metal R toys to work as well as they do, actually.

I hope you got yourself some patlabor sets cos they will fit in perfectly too! 

'Fraid not.  The smallest Patlabor stuff I have is 1:60 scale.

Wowsers! Talk abt a place to put all your figs...

On the labors was referring to the latest robot spirit ones..Granted am not sure of their scales on paper, but they look as of they could scale well in too.

As usual Macross World is a crack den!

I've been working on the city diorama since November...

P1244801.thumb.jpg.9f3807e1642b79d7834714382f7ba227.jpg

...but it's far from complete.

P1244798.thumb.jpg.14f42d34b62944e92328855c120a664f.jpg

Streetlights, foliage, traffic lights, signage, people...

downtown.thumb.jpg.38c76684d5fdc99efabac52b4ca660b5.jpg

Lots of detail to be added yet.

P1244797.thumb.jpg.d4d06ab17725668f7261fc0e49d4ecba.jpg

And then, of course, I've got to begin distressing the buildings...

590923f001301_horizontalpods.thumb.jpg.6bd948a17149c552854dabe43a368bc7.jpg

Adding rubble and debris...

street_view.thumb.jpg.640b45e8099cb3c120dcad65afc7f651.jpg

Smashed buildings, broken glass...

targeted.thumb.jpg.7a8ef1cec8f7c46851ec159c0e6570b6.jpg

It's all still too clean and colorful...!

To be continued...

Fantastic work! I love it. Mind sharing how the roads and sidewalks are done? Also do you have a background in there or is your diorama actually huge? I have a hard time distinguishing where it ends! The overhead power lines (if real and not background) really makes it convincing.  If you don't mind sharing an overview of your setup that would be great. 

I have a temporary rail layout in N scale using similar buildings, and also did some quick phone pics with HMR in it posted in the strike a pose thread. Nothing quite as fancy as yours!

Lol of course. Read your previous post hours ago and didn't see this until I've posted the above reply. The setup looks great and is indeed huge! Looks like some photoshopping was involved to add the sky background. What about the overhead wires?

RD Patlabors are 12.8cm in height, in anime AV-98 is 8.02m tall which makes RD 1/62... Close enough :D

Awesome!  Depending on the angle of some shots one can't tell how small some of the buildings actually are to HMR scale.  I imagine a 1/90-1/100 scale city diorama to be even more huge!

Wow. That diorama is amazing! I wish I had the patience to put something like that together. Very, very well done! 

Also, I don't know if anyone is still looking for the HMR Monster, but Jungle Toys has one for ¥17,280. If you haven't used them before, they do charge a 5% on top of the price for international customers (if I remember correctly, it's been a while since I ordered from them) so factor that into whether it's a good deal for you or not. I wish I had the cash to grab a third one, but I am way overspent for the next couple of months. Ah, collecting! :D

Need a little help. I want to pimp up my Monster. I plan to use the decals of the 1/200 Bandai kit. need to know, is the HMR Monster 1/200 or 1/100? Appreciate your inputs guys and gals.

Should be 1/100. All the Macross HMR figures are supposed to be 1/100. Unless Bandai screw up the actual scaling... again. ;)

HMR Macross figures are roughly 1/100

My effects parts finally showed up last night.  I feel like they're a huge missed opportunity.  The contrails could have had balls attached to the ends so the angles of the contrails could be adjusted a little bit.  And there's no attachment to make it look like missiles are firing from the super packs.  I'm pretty underwhelmed by them.

Some HMR are 1/100 scale and others are close to 1/100 scale.

This is why I ended up passing on them.  The "stand" they come with is just re-used tamashii display stand stuff (glaug comes with the same thing).  I'm not a huge fan of reaction missiles, they are ok, but they weren't selling me on the set.  The only thing I really liked was the missile pod effect, but there were only 2 of those.  I wasn't going to pay $50+ for something I was only interested in 1/3rd of.  The more I looked at it, the more I realized it simply wasn't worth it, to me.

It's a shame, like you said.  Something like this could really help pull off the iconic missile-heavy fights of the show, but it seemed like they half-assed it.  If they released only the missile pod effects, in say a 4 pack, I'd be all over it, but I doubt that will every happen (maybe 3d printing, someone?).

Thanks. So the 1/200 decals from the Bandai kit is not a viable option.
