    HI Guys, great idea putting this thread up Thunder. Got a few kits here, will try to get them sorted for you guys.

    MK II Destroid Monster (complete but pdo has errors now so will redo)
    VF 11 Valkyrie (satlled)
    VF 2Ja WIP (planning stage)
    VF 1 (A_S) WIP (Planning Stage)

    Have models of a few destroids but Thunder can do a much better job :)

    I think the downloads section for Battlestar Galactica is so cool!

    "I have a dream..."
    Thats how the speech starts right? My dream is to have a dowload section like that of the Galactica, but for RT and Macross. So Janx, Let's get those models up there! Ok, wait for me to finish at least the defender ( :D ), But your Alpha is such a great model that I'll be hard pressed to even match it!

    Who else would like to have the Robotech/Macross section? If we get enough models up there it could happen right? :)

    Janx, I for one would enjoy building YOUR destroids, and be honored to have mine stand next to them on my shelf!
    Build Pics arriving in a day or two btw... :)

    I agree, I'd enjoy having Janx's destroid models, especially if they're half as good as his Alpha (I'm currently building it).

    I myself was considering making models of some of the less common aircraft in Macross/Robotech, like the VC-33, SC-27, LVT Avenger II, VC-27, F203, Comanchero, etc. since I can design aircraft models pretty well.

    UHHMmmmm,the link to the VC-33 leads to a youtube vid of the US Navy's test shot of the worlds largest railgun. I tried it 3 different times.
    The VS-33 Mom's Kitchen looks kind of "klunky".

    The F203 looks HOT !

    The SF-3A Lancer II is extrenely hard to get ahold of.( resin GK.) But looks fairly easy to do in card.

    The Anti UN MiM-31 looks good too.

    don't forget that fruiz already posted a link to several robotech models here:

    i think i've seen a cardmodel of the SF-3A before... but i can't seem to find it again...

    hmm, found something else, a flying VF-1A glider kit, here. odd program looks like an executable slideshow, maybe the left-most button will print out the pattern?

    I have the exact model kit of the armored lady and had actually started
    to build it quite some years ago but never finished.
    I can try do a 360 macro of the kit if anyone is interested. Let me know
    and I can dig it out of my collection.

    Looking good! Is the ankle jointed?

    Like the current run of Battletech models... I don't think that it's practical for a jointed ankle. The images you see above are exaggerated point of view to give the pose.

    I'm working on the Scorpion and getting joints to work and last is not an easy task.

    Nice work so far TC.

    I guess I'll post progress somewhere else after this, but the prototype is ready.

    Thanks for the boost you guys!

    This is just a static pose model and its small. The leg as you see it here is 6cm tall. I decided to do it this way first (Like I did with the SDF-1) because like StevO said, having articulation, stability and durability is a mammoth task!

    One of the reason's this build is taking so long is because I'm busy with, among other models, a larger pose-able version of the defender. I'm still struggling with the hip joints in particular, I can only seem to get rotation on two of the three axes while keeping the structure strong enough. But have no fear, I won't stop till I succeed! If anyone has tips or suggestions, pretty please pass them my way!

    Paragon, Can't wait to see pics of Mom's Kitchen! Quoting Bron:"I'd love to have one of my very own!"

    I finished the prototype today and put it together, this is the result (sorry for the messy build):


    I expect to release several colored versions on my website tomorrow or the day after.

    Like I said before, they're not incredibly detailed models.

    Wow Paragon! That looks Schweet! :)

    Will you be doing other requests?

    Like the comanchero or the ES-11D Cat's Eye...? (wink-wink) :D
