pengbuzz Posted August 4, 2019 Share Posted August 4, 2019 (edited) For a while now, I've seen the Macross Armored Factory kits online, and while I like the idea, the scale is too small for me. Additionally, my valkyries are all in 1/72 scale. So what is a pengbuzz to do? Build the factory in 1/72, as a diorama/base/backdrop. So first, the wall and door get traced and cut: A tad smaller than I wanted, but whatever. I only have so much mattboard and not a lot of money. Door has been cut and placed, along with the beginnings of the wall: Starting the "lock holes" for the moving gantry/walkway" Not as bad on the scale as I feared, but still a little smaller than I originally wanted: Next up: the floor with turntables; I plan on deepening this with a thicker base and wells or the turntables: Added a "human-sized" door for forklifts and the like: And last night, added the moving crane arm well, glued into position for this setup. Moving parts for me usually break, so I don't do much with them: Stay tuned folks, more to come as I progress...
