Side covers are coming, and for the baby pod - I'd have to eye ball it as I don't have one in-hand.

I'll definitely buy a baby pod even if you eye ball it.  

I might buy the 2 seater as well for my VF-1D VR.

I have 1/48 side covers that came with the GBP Armor Parts. 

Does anyone know how difficult it would be to replicate them via 3D printing or some other method? I've never tried but am curious. 

Would be cool to have them for my other 1/48s

You could try making your own molds, youtube has a lot of video's on the subject. Might cost ya bout $10 for materials

Man I wish I could find some shoulder hinges for the VF-11.  Mine are both broken on my VF-11C

I'll bet those parts could be produced Via Shapeways or something similar.

Probably, but not sure they'd be very durable out of most of the plastics available. Even the Acrylate material might wear over time.

Which do ppl prefer? I always wanted to do another version, the one we see when Max first battles Milia in the TV series;

Where are the replacement shoulder hinges? Can't seem to find those on Shapeways.

Assuming you mean the shoulder hinges for the Yamato v2 1/60 VF-1:

Do you know if they make the backpack hinge (BP-8) for the 1/48 i couldn’t find it. But i didn’t find that shoulder joint either.

I vote this version that has working flaps and LED glow effect when open!

Hello. Is this thread still alive? I am looking for replacement hands for a 1/48 yamato valkyrie. Looked at sideways but only found 1/60 hands.

thanks

You and me both. I would love some nice fixed posed hands for a 1/48 yammie.

Don't buy anything from here. They never shipped my stuff and by the time I realized it was too late for recourse through feeBay. Every time I message them.........crickets.

Thanks for the heads up. You mean in the whole macrossworld site or sideways? Hope someone with some broken 1/48 reads my wanted post and sends me an offer or something.

I mean don't get anything from that eBay seller.

Hopefully someone is making this stuff still. I need hands and cavity fillers.

Yikes. That used to be member here years ago and used to have a good reputation. After he was banned he went sour and is still up to the same old shenanigans.

Avoid this seller like cancer.

The $50 I got screwed out of hurt. But not being able to get hands and cavity feelers hurts more. 

I can't believe with 3D printing stuff flying all over the place I can't get hands and fillers.

Just came across these. Not mine, but if you need them here they are on Shapeways.

1/48 BP-8 

and

1/55 VF-1D Conversion Kit 

Nice finds! I've been looking for a BP-8 replacement for a Yamato 1/48 1S that I want to turn into a Minmay Guard Paris Act. Just placed an order for the two-pack (in case I screw something up).

And I *do* still plan on 3D scanning all of the resin cast 1/55 parts that I have, which includes a VF-1D head, cockpit, and heatshield. I'll probably scan in a chestplate and modify it for the 1D, too. The scanning project is on hold at the moment while I design and build my own scanner from the ground up. The reasonably-priced commercial options ended up being very disappointing.
