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

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… Continue reading Wave 1/72 Macross Destroid Missle Phanlax

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

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

Macross Delta VF-31J Siegfried Hayate with Fast Pack – Bandai 1/72 model kit

Macross Delta isn’t the best of the Macross series (and I have yet to finish the highly rated Frontier), but the Siegfried is a nice plane in concept. I’m not sure why I’m building so many of them really (this being the first of 4). They’re lacking the armored variants even. I’m not super thrilled… Continue reading Macross Delta VF-31J Siegfried Hayate with Fast Pack – Bandai 1/72 model kit

Model Legend Gundam Altron/Nataku Glory of Losers resin conversion kit

I have been loving the Glory of Losers rendition of the Gundams. They had created enhanced versions of the first versions of the Gundams, such as the Heavyarms Igel, and   Sandrock Armadillo, with practical but slightly over-the-top additions. I’ve done the Igel since I loved it so much, and it was the first kit I’ve gotten… Continue reading Model Legend Gundam Altron/Nataku Glory of Losers resin conversion kit

VF-1S Strike Valkyrie Hikaru’s Final Shot : 1/72 Hasegawa

This is a Hasegawa 1/72 Strike Battroid kit conversion. The model depicts Hikaru’s VF-1S arriving at the chamber of Baldozer and emptied his magazine in his face. It was simply classic of the classics… no other sequence evoked such emotions! The Hasegawa Battroid isn’t a bad kit, and amongst the battroid models it’s one of… Continue reading VF-1S Strike Valkyrie Hikaru’s Final Shot : 1/72 Hasegawa
