Kit Review: Lynn Minmay 1:20 Minimum factory (Max Factory / Good Smile Company)

As I mentioned in my review of the fairy kit, I love this Minmay sculpt and I disliked all others that came before it. Part of the difficulty is perhaps the very expressive 2D design by Haruhiko Mikimoto isn’t quite translatable into a 3D design; the nose was always wrong amongst other issues such as odd shaped head… Continue reading Kit Review: Lynn Minmay 1:20 Minimum factory (Max Factory / Good Smile Company)

RVF-25 Messiah Valkyrie Luca with booster pack – 1/72 Bandai

I wasn’t initially thrilled with the Messiah design, but it grew on me after a while even without seeing the anime (I still haven’t finished Macross Frontier…). The RVF variant is the reconnaissance type with the additional radome and remote controlled “ghosts” unmanned aircrafts.

Neko-koneko VF-0S :)

I’m trying to finish up Macross Zero’s VF-0S with Ghost. I like the heavily armed aspect of the fighter, but it’s not everyday you see planes stacked on each other like this 🙂 The Ghost module on top also looks like some creature on top of the main body itself… the whole thing is kinda… Continue reading Neko-koneko VF-0S 🙂

Macross Plus YF19

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone has their juicy turkey. Having gotten my Thanks from Alien Bees, I’ve been having a good time taking pics. I’m hoping to finish up a few kits I’ve been working on for a while this long hoilday, and the first one is the YF-19 I’ve been working on for the… Continue reading Macross Plus YF19
