Happy Holidays:

I've been working on creating a list of every single Macross kit in all scales (1/144, 1/100, 1/72, 1/48, etc) and materials (plastic, resin, vinyl, etc).  The last (2) years were spent compiling links to every website/thread containing information/pictures about Macross kits.  :bigshok:  Anyone interested in assisting, please let me know.  The ultimate goal will be to update the MW Model Section.


* If you have a list of your Macross model collection please send it to me via MW messenger to see if there's anything missing.  (Shawn, Chad, Carl, etc.)  :hail:

* If you own more than (10) kits or have any rare ones but no list, please consider to take a picture and send it me or create a list yourself.

* If you have any background information about the origins of rare manufactures (Experten, I.H.P., Liquid Stone, D-Stance, etc.) please contact me or post in the thread.

First off, I need feedback on the numbering system for the following kits.  If you own any of these kits that have numbers on the side, please help me fill in the blanks.

These pictures are from my personal collection.  (Please be specific what you're referring to, or pictures will be awesome.)

1.) Arii 1/100 HEWAT Model Collection

Question: Does anything come after #10, or other numbered Arii collections you know of?

2.) Arii 1/100 Silver Box Model Collection  (I'm only missing #102 VF-1J Hikaru if anyone can help.)  :help:

Question: Does anything come before #78, after #112, or between #84 and #98?

3.) Bandai 1/100 Model Collection

The VF-1S, VF-1D, and VF-1J Max each have two different box art available.  (Picture forthcoming)

Question: How many releases were there?  (Original, 15th Anniversary, and 30th Anniversary)

Question: Which release had numbers on the side?  (Original most likely)

Question: What's the missing numbers?

4.) Imai 1/72 Model Collection

Question: What's the missing numbers?  (Very strange numbering system, they jump around a lot..before, after and in between unknown.)

Imai 1-72 Model Collection.jpg

5.) Hasegawa 1/72 and 1/48 Model Collection

Question: They use a numbering system, anyone have a large collection that could provide a picture with them in order?

6.) Bandai 1/72 Model Collection

Question: Did the original variable kits use a numbering system for the 1st release like the Bandai 1/100 1st release did?

Question: How many releases were there?  (Original, 15th Anniversary, and 30th Anniversary)

Will update as we go,

Christopher  :hi:

"Hi Chris,

Will this list separate the official licensed products,  GK licensed from BW, GK unlicensed (bootlegs or 3P) and straight out recast bootlegs of official kits and unofficial kits, and finally 3D printed unofficial products from many individuals in production.

It just gets so confusing nowadays that many of us would like to know what is “official” and how we can better support true Macross/BW products.

I know I am guilty of buying recasts sometimes without even knowing until it’s too late. For example, I bought a 1/48 UD Kit years ago from a seller who stayed the product was official, but late came to discover it was an e2046 release. 

All the parts are well done, but I was really hoping for the original."

Excellent questions, I appreciate your interest and please let me know if you any free time to assist.  There is a Google Doc that can be shared with you so any contributions made will be added.  I've been contacting known collectors to get their inventory list and/or pictures so I don't miss anything.  Quite a few members have been really helpful, and for the first time we have a picture of every Macross kit Carl Hoff owns, and that's around 200.   I've also gotten some very nice lists from Shawn and great pictures of his massive collection.

Another goal was to get a list of releases from Macross Members such as Captain America, MSLZ22, etc.  I contacted EXO (Plastic Cretins) via his FaceBook Page and Messenger, but never heard back.  He and I were friends here on MW, but he hasn't visited since 2017 it looks like.  Does anyone have any contact with him to get a list of what he made?

Next has been deciding upon the categories, this is what I came up with:

1.) Brand: (Alphabetical)
2.) Series: (TV/DYRL/Frontier/Etc.)
3.) Scale: (Small to Largest)
3.) Model Name/Armor Type: (VF-1/VF-171/Strike/Super/Armored/GBP-1/Etc)
4.) Character/Livery: (Roy, Hikaru, Cannon Fodder/Etc)
6.) Mode: (Valkyrie/Battroid/Variable/2 Type)
7.) Material: (Plastic/Resin/Vinyl/3D Printed/Metal Coated/Etc) 
8.) Notes: (15th Anniversary/Clear Version/Deculture/Event Only/Wonder Festival/Etc) 
9.) Release Year(s):

I understand and agree with your concerns about buying original kits.  First priority will be to documenting official plastic/resin/vinyl kits, as well as 3D kits from known manufacturers since they are technically model kits.  That's why I contacted Plastic Cretins without any success.  Lastly I'll do my best to include recasts with them clearly marked as not being originals. 

In addition to the list, we'll also need files saved showing the kits  box art, contents and hopefully how it looks built.  All saved to folders under the manufactures name, then sub folders by scale, type, etc.  That will allow the MW Model Section to be modernized and updated.  Please let me know if you have anymore questions/comments.

Please give detailed input, anyone interested to volunteer to review the MCML Project prior to posting the typed version please contact me.

Here are my priorities for the MCML Project:

1.) Dissemination: Reaching as many Macross fans as possible (I don't think that's going to happen solely here on MW.  Visits, posts, interactions are drastically down from where it used to be..)

2.) Appreciation: (All explained, labor of love, 500+ hours, emails, money spent.  How do I reach people with this information, fans who will use it and actually acknowledge just how much work it was?)

3.) Out of pocket expenses and additional expenses for websites/publishing/etc: (I'm disabled, it's very hard to type now, take pictures, and I suffer from depression/headaches/nerve damage/etc after military service.  This has been a constant struggle for me to not give up.)

4.) Make it look great: (I want to do more than just copy/paste some list here on MW/FB.  My dream for a deluxe interactive MCML has links, attachments, and we're working on adding pictures to more than 1,500 entries.  What's the best way to present it so all the hard work looks awesome and presentable?)


A.) Do I pay someone to design a website, and then the fees to host it?  So that the MCML can be found via Google searches, has links, full HD pictures, etc.  This will be a large investment in time/money.

B.) Find a book publishing company and pay the upfront fees, work on the layout, design, etc?

C.) Approach an existing website(s) with my list and see if they're willing to host it in a dedicated section?  This would require someone to invest time/money setting up the pages to display the information, pictures, links and so forth.

Please let me know your thoughts and suggestions.  :hi:

Hi there! I'm just returning back to check MW since 2012 (when my child was born, took me 8 years to settle down again :P) and this topic just popped up. When ChristopherB said: "The ultimate goal will be to update the MW Model Section '' I am ALL IN and I know a lot of us want that the MW Model Section have to be the main reference on this topic.  Just let me know how I can help!
In the 2012 I was working making changes on the page and the database with Grayson72, EXO, Mechamaniac and others:
