VF-31J Siegfried Hayate Custom Final Sortie version – Macross Delta – 1/72 Bandai model kit

I finished this kit a while ago but forgot to take shots. This is Hayate’s custom on the final sortie, which has a number of customizations on it, including the flying knight insigna, and reaction bombs. The build is very much like the rest of the Bandai VF-31s. The reaction bombs are from Macross Frontier…

Wave 1/72 Macross Destroid Defender

The slightly awkward AA gun mecha Destroid Defender!  Just like the Missle Phanlax, the Defender is in Wave’s overpriced line up of Destroids. Being the first of the batch however, the price wasn’t too bad, but had more seamlines in the AA guns.  The kit provides two type of ammo catridges on the shoulders. I’m…

Wave 1/72 Macross Destroid Missle Phanlax

Who doesn’t love the Destroids. One of the standout “grunts” of Macross, I find the destroids a very practical design for a scifi show and the concept is still applicable today. This Wave’s 1/72 rendition is a huge upgrade from the ancient Arii kits, with better proportion, details and articulation. The only downside is the…

SMS/Neograde 1/100 NZ-666 Kshatriya

Kshatriya is one of the more popular designs  from Gundam UC (see wikia for full description). It’s derived from the much bigger Queen Martha and is used by Maria since the opening episode. It looks very powerful and you’d have guessed it’s the boss mecha if you haven’t watched the show, but it quickly got…

MG Sazabi 1/100 – Coreworks conversion

Coreworks was one of the earlier Korean resin conversion garage kit makers. This was back in 2000s where the trend was to stylize and beefing up Gundam designs, and I loved Coreworks. This 1/100 Sazabi conversion was applicable to the old MG Sazabi, which had poor proportions.  To be honest I considered this an abandoned…

MG 1/100 Ex-S Gundam with conversion set

Ex-S is the enhanced version of the S-Gundam, from the Gundam Sentinel story. I’m going to TL;DR and refer to the Gundam wikia for the details of the story and Ex-S.  The original MG Ex-S was a bold move by Bandai, but the execution left something to be desired, especially when they released it in…

VF-31J Siegfried Hayate Custom Deculture version – Macross Delta – 1/72 Bandai model kit

Having missed out on the VF-25 Macross Frontier’s deculture kits, I bought the Deculture Siegfried immediately. I’m a big fan of fancy aircraft art 🙂  This particular variant of VF-31J is the final version, after Hayate customized Messer’s aircraft to be his own. But with all the Freyja hearts you probably can’t tell 🙂  I…

VF-31F Siegfried Messer Custom – Macross Delta – Bandai 1/72 model kit

Second of the 4 VF-31 I’ve built so far, I got Messer’s ride for its grim reaper goodness and the extra Walkure decals from the promo campaign. Turns out these decals weren’t in short demand so now I have 3 sets :-/ Macross Delta has its critics and Messer is a cool character that just…
