If any of these get released as TWE I wouldn't mind.  I just want them made.

VF-1D

Regult Scout

Regult DYRL

VF-1EX Hayate and Mirage

VF-4G

My HMR mecha wishlist is:

TV Queadluun Rau

TV Nousjadeul Ger

DYRL Nousjadeul Ger

Regult Scout

Glaug Eldare

Gnerl

Quel Quallie

Liewneuatz shuttle

I also wish Figuarts would do the SDFM Zentraedi officers and troopers instead of "Min Mei" and such.

I'm starting to plan out some diorama setups for my HMRs.  I have some of those Kotubukiya Chain Base sets for an internal hanger bay dio.  I know Bandai has that Amored Factory model kit with 1/100 scale people and support vehicles.  I may get that as well.

I would also like to set up a city street scene either something to represent Macross island or maybe Macros city inside the SDF-1.   I haven't really seen a lot of 1/100 scale buildings.  I've seen plenty of 1/150 scale stuff that seems perfect as I think it's a common railroad scale called "N" scale.  Seems to be a lot of variety of modern Japanese buildings in N scale.

I'm wondering if anyone has had good results with 1/150 scale items or is it better to find something 1/100 or perhaps go down slightly to "HO" scale which is about 1/87 scale.

I may use N scale buildings, and then try to find more appropriate scale people.

Not sure if it was in this thread or one of the other photo threads but someone here posted pics of their big city diorama with HMR's and it looked amazing.

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

...but it's far from complete.

P1244798.thumb.jpg.14f42d34b62944e92328855c120a664f.jpg

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

Lots of detail to be added yet.

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

Adding rubble and debris...

Smashed buildings, broken glass...

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

To be continued...

Here is the diorama from tekering.

Wow, I hadn't been regularly checking this thread as much as I should.  Completely missed that diorama.  Looks great.  Yeah, the more I see it, the more it looks like the N scale works fine.  Now, I'm even wondering if the HMRs are even really 1/100.

I have a lot more humble aspiration to do just a small part of a street that I can fit in my Detolf display case or on a book shelf.

TV Q Rau!!!! I mean...come on! It's never been done! 

Man why does this even need to be stated at this point...come on, Bandai. Easily the most beautiful Zentradi mech design from SDFM, and could be a cheap repaint for a quick cash grab.

I think Jenius has posted some of the scales in his reviews, and the VF-1s are closer to 1/90, or 1/85 or thereabouts.  I can't really say about the others, but I think there's enough variation in scale during the series itself that you can fudge things easily, as long as they look nice.

Don't pay any attention to the pilots in the TV HMR VF-1s, they're incredibly nonsensically small.  The DYRL ones are much closer to looking accurate.  For whatever reason, they made the TV ones imitate the bits of SDFM where the pilots were drawn way too small.

Yup.   Those tv pilots are way too small.   I like the movie pilots because they're bigger and visible across the room.   But the movie  pilots do look a little crowded in the seating, compared to real life pilots in cockpits.   At this size though at least they paint them.   They didn't even paint the pilot in the masterpiece star scream/thunder cracker. 

 

Sh9000 those are awesome diorama pics.   Is it yours?
