  1. It's been so long since I've been able to pop in and give your work some proper attention.* Great stuff as always!!!
  2. Sigh, now I need one. Very nice Tony! I shall return to read more and look at the pictures again once I free up some minutes. Cheers!
  3. Cheers @Flyboy72nd, Dad has indicated it has landed at his address, a contingency plan based on my move this summer. I ordered mine Sept, 2016.
  4. I was just coming to ask if anyone had received theirs. @Flyboy72nd I see you are also in Canada, that is comforting. My tracking # doesn't work nicely so I am wondering if you had the same experience.
  5. Beautiful finished product. Weirdly, model cars have been stealing my attention away from my typical planes and ships. I think it is down to the stage of my life atm and their relative simplicity. This one certainly piqued my curiosity into what Hasegawa has to offer. Not a common name associated with auto models in my experience and region.
  6. I sorely miss my modelling space. 

    With two kiddos in full toddler load out I am just not able to construct my ideal hobby room in the depths of this abode. I even suggested my wife and I could share the space as designated hobby area, but she has yet to relent and approve of spending any time away from the insanity.

     

    Pray.

  7. I've only had the creamy yellow casts. Never a white resin. Thanks for the heads up though!
  8. I didn't mean it like that I swear, but now I have to leave it unedited for posterity.
  9. Same email received. VERY excited but also reserving final explosive joy for when it reaches my palms.

    Very nice, what scale and brand would I find this in if I had to have it?
  11. G'day all, Is there an accessory out there which converts AMT's 1:25 Chev Monte Carlo from a 1970 model to a 71/72 by way of modification to the headlights?
  12. I've never had a quality issue with them, in fact I am surprised to see so much negativity concerning their standards.
  13. Their mechanical casts are really awesome. I have a few add on kits for existing models from well known sci-fi manufacturers like Bandai and Hasegawa. I purchase all over to get what I want, I have no compunctions about buying from someone who is essentially keeping up with demand. I wish I could draw a direct comparison to the historical modelling genre, but I will have to use re-pops of auto parts and aftermarket accessories as an example.

    Macross: help & advice appreciated

    I'm glad I stumbled upon this thread, being the biggest MACROSS fan I know. I have made every effort to collect every kit available in 1/72, from the mostly unknown garage kits out of Japan to the more accessible VF-1 kits of fighter, gerwalk, and battroid from Hasegawa. I have managed to collect the WAVE destroids kits, which are pretty, and the old WAVE vinyl kits which require some hobby experience. I have even gone as far as to collect the Yamato 1/72 VF-19 in diecast as there was no kit of it available (until very recently) in battroid mode (robot). My goal was to have at least one fighter and one battroid of identical markings in each type. The Bandai kits you speak of can be had for very little if you stumble upon them at the right time, but they seem to now be going for collector prices. You can find some decent pricing on eBay if you dare, B.I.N. prices seem to be reasonable for the Hasegawa kits of common molds. I actually own a rare resin YF-21 battroid kit that I would be willing to part with if you are interested, just PM me.
