  1. It's still known as Macross outside of Japan. Robotech is a bastardisation of three completely different shows (Southern Cross, Mospeada and Macross) and as you can guess I'm not a fan of it. Unfortunately you can't buy any Macross dvds outside of Japan (apart from Macross Plus and Macross II, maybe one other that escapes me right now as "technically" they are illegal releases) as no one has legal rights to series outside of Japan despite Harmony Gold saying otherwise. I remember first reading about this when I was 13... I'm 38 this year, I hope it's resolved soon. But I digress,
  2. Evening everyone! Hope this message finds you all well? So I managed to do some work on the Gainful before Christmas, she's all primed and that is where I have had to leave it. I unfortunately contracted Covid-19 over Christmas from my girlfriend whom caught it at work. I was doing well until two weeks ago where I went into hospital with a chest infection. Two days later I was rushed back into hospital with my blood oxygen levels being only 68%. Turns out I have managed to contract what is known as "Covid pneumonia"... This isn't fun and apparently was even more worryi
  3. Hello All, I have been looking at all of the group builds on Britmodeller the last week or so thinking what ones can I join (I would like to join a few but I must be realistic). My modelling time has been short of late as in August I was made redundant from my job when the 80% furlough scheme finished (yeah - funny that!) and I then started another job 3 weeks later (yes I know I was lucky there). I have thanked my old place of employment for playing for my holiday with my redundancy money and the deposit for a new car (70 plate Nissan Juke if you must know). I now work for the
  4. I have been trying to get my hands on one of these kits but they are pretty hard to track down. I will however be following this build with great interest. That looks likes the Chinook kit at Italeri/Revell are still releasing now? Gotta be honest though, that is quite literally a "battle bus". Would be good in a zombie apocalypse I'd imagine? Kind Regards, Dazz
  5. Maybe the free shipping is a bonus to ex members? The Kate is number "A73012". Maybe the "A73013" is the book freebie? I haven't received anything else in my box and I had the A73013 on my order form too. Kind Regards, Dazz
  6. Well my club box arrived this morning. The Kate model is the same as the normal boxing just with a different decal sheet printed by Kits-World. Which I'm happy about as it's supporting a local (British) company, I could even enter it into the "Journeys End" GB. I also appear to be one of the lucky ones and received the Airfix book - it is quite literally a list. The reason I asked about shipping was because I got shipping for free even though I was no where near the £50 limit. Just lucky I guess. Kind Regards, Dazz
  7. I managed to get the Pro membership around 1pm-ish on Friday. I don't think I was in time for the freebie however. One thing I wanted to know though, has everyone paid for delivery? Kind Regards, Dazz
  8. Lovely Pheonix you have done there Hoops. I have the VF-0D to do at some point. I was never keen on the ghost in this version - altho this is the version the Shinn later flies in the show. I am building a VF-1J with the Fast Packs right now, if it turns out half as good as that I will be happy. Have you done any more? Kind Regards, Dazz.
  9. Thank you for the kind words Blimpyboy. It was a struggle to get it where it is now and I am not 100% happy with her, but I did learn alot from it. I am planning on making the rocket truck it launches from (Zero Launch Length style). But that will be way down the line. Thank you Aye, she is a big 'ol beastie but I think she is an amazing piece of engineering. Looks fast as hell just sitting there. Much appreciated Keith. This is the Japanese boxing of the Stratos 4 TSR-2MS that features in the OVA "Stratos 4 : Advance Final". The one you have
  10. Hello Everyone, Well it's been a few weeks since my last update (where is the time going?!). I have been working on the Valkyrie every night (what else is there to do right now?)... update time! So in my last post I said I was going to try black basing, I am still not sold on it but I am liking the results. I am going to play around with it on a few other models. For anyone who doesn't know you prime your model/part in black - in this case Vallejo Black Primer (see below). Then in ramdom light patterns you spray white to make tonal variations in the model. I am not
  11. Oh nice, I've still got to finish my GR1's with the JP233's. Which iirc where seen to be better than the MW-1 because of the less drag penalty but the MW-1 has more munitions? I could be wrong there. I did find an MW-1 in a Dragon set I've got somewhere, never actually checked it so I don't know how good it is. I'm still looking for BL775 clusterbombs in 1/144. Looking forward to this one Bosse. Like you, I own more Tornados than I should admit too lol. Kind Regards, Dazz
  12. Oo a S.A Bulldog. An aircraft that is pretty close to me as I have about 4 hours flying time in one with the ATC as a kid (funny enough). I also built this kit but different decals (I think it was a blister pack one) for one of the many GB's I sign up for, but unlike most I actually finished this one! Below is my example from about 4 years ago. I will look forward to watching this one progress. I cheated with the noseweight by using a stand. lol Kind Regards, Dazz
  13. Thank you both, I am really enjoying this refurb. While I know it will not be perfect, I am happy with the results thus far. So I couldn't resist a little mock up to see if there was anywhere that needed my attention. The cockpit to fuselage join needs some sanding. I will probably lose some of the vents there, however I have PE vents from my Gundam kits that will fit the bill perfectly! Infact they are almost a direct replacement! But that will be another post tomorrow... probably. I am going to try a black basing method on this aircraft. Not nothin
  14. Thank you Modelling Minion... it's taken a while to get to this stage but the hard work is over now... I think. So as I said in my last post I have done more work on the Valkyrie, but with out any pictures yet. While listening to the voices of Lynn Minmay, Fire Bomber (Particularly Mylene Jenius ), Sharon Apple, Ranka Lee and Sheryl Nome - anyone who knows anything about Macross knows that the two most promient features are the Valkyries and songs, but I digress. First up is the typical Hasegawa canopy with the mold seem down the middle of it (picture below).
  15. Hello Everyone, Has it really been 3-ish weeks since my last post?! Wow time flies when you can't keep track of it! I have been working on this kit pretty much everynight as well as playing EVE-Online (one of my favourite games). So where I left it last time, the cockpit was nothing more than a hole in some grey plastic (below). Oh god that is horrible isn't it? So I spent a few nights cleaning it up and sorting out the horrible example of gluing at the nose. While looking for ideas on this kit, I remembered that the VF-1A/J/S where based on
