After I finished the last turbo custom from Bandai, I thought I was done with Scpoedogs. I have a Yamato 1/12 that I dissembled and was going to paint, and got a 1/8 Volks that I finally won via Y!JP auction. In the mean time Bandai offered this Lehman custom that I initially didn’t have… Continue reading Yet More Scopedog?
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
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
Everytime I go into a Macross building frenzy, I ended up wanting to build more non-scifi models, i.e. armor and planes, most likely due to the lure of details. I built some tanks when I was young, but I think I really have an affinity for them even after all the gunpla.I actually have an… Continue reading And now for something completely different – M1114 Up Armored HA Tractical Vehicle from Bronco
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
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
This is the 4th Bandai VF-31 I’m building. Should’ve put up the previous 3 🙂 I did one Hayate with Fast Pack in Gerwalk form, one Messer (I like his Grim Reaper), one Deculture and this one I got because it was on sale, when Banzai Hobby was selling a VF-31+fast pack+SV-262+Lil Draken for more… Continue reading VF-31J Siegfried Hayate final episode version
My site is like 20+ years old, and over time I’ve been less and less keen to add fancy features to it since I couldn’t sustain visitors with lack of updates 🙂 The hosting service is constantly giving me fits about CPU usage and such, so I wonder if I can use a simpler theme… Continue reading Simpler look
Before there were the Nu Gundam MG Ver Ka. which was an excellent kit, there was the less than impressive vanilla MG Nu. I love the original design by Izubuchi which features bulkier build and more curved surfaces. The Ver ka was more detailed, but it isn’t the same impression of the Nu presented in… Continue reading Blast from the past!
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
