I cut a template from a clear acrylic paper, and using it the decal was cut to shape and size and placed on the top of the model. This is how it looks;

The missiles were taken from the armament set, and I chose them because I plan a colorful painting scheme, and don't want the armaments to take too much attention.

I'm new to macross modelling, so when I got the kit I wasn't aware of the dull (IMHO) schemes. After some searching I found the minmay itasha special edition, but couldn't get the decals set alone, and the kit itself is too expensive today if at all can be bought.

so I found a replacement and got an Aoshima decla set for cars, depicting characters from the Yoichi of tomorrow manga. The model was painted in white and purple, and then sprayed with Tamiya's clear as a basis for the decals.

thanks for taking a look,
Eyal :)

Model In-Progress / 1/72 VF-1 Valkyrie

After watching Macross anime, I had to build at least one of ths valkyries models. I got a Hasegawa VF-1, and went to work.
It is a real challenge for me to work with the smooth lines of the aircraft, especially filling the main lines between the two body halves.

for start I got the model and the armament set from hlj. The base is going to be with me soon.

The pilot figure was taken from the set, and I painted it with GW and Vallejo acrylics.

I then painted the cockpit area in light gray.

Hasegawa does not give the option to close the wheel doors, so I had to convert them to be able to clsoe them. I also head to fill entirely the side wheel wells, as the doors would not fit it.

The cockpit recived some color, as the decals provided by Hasegawa to simulate the instruments panel was not too good, too colorful to my taste.

After some trials with uptty and sanding, I filled the fuelage halves line with lots of suprglue and then sadning.

I would like to share pictures of my finemolds X-wing.
A great kit, I hope you lie,

Hi Mark,
Happy to see you find your way here, IMHO this is the best forum for seriour modellers.
I think the only forum I've ever written in that people actually give you good critique.
I can't wait to see this monster in real life,

Thank you  :D
The last ten are ready now, was a lot faster than I thought, production line is much quicker than doing them in bunches..

I love Hayao myazaki films, he's one of my favorite director, and favorite anime directo :)..

I finally got to paint the crew, I painted 4 soldiers, their commander, two mechanics, the chef, the waiter and the piggy. I have to paint 10 more soldiers, but I think I'll do them in production line. I painted them in acrylics.
Thanks for watching, not long now..

The base is coming to an end.

I added some lower grass from another silflor grass mat, some statis grass and super fine scatter. Then some crushed dried leaves. Shame that most will be hidden by the enormous tank  :blink:

After they were dry, I added black cardboard around, and placed into a wood picture frame, it is almost done now.

Thanks for watching,

Thanks :).
The grass comes from a sheet form, so to prevent it looking floating off the ground I give it just a little pressure with the pins. I use white glue which takes a long time to dry, so I found the pins help me stick the grass in place.

I would have loved to build walker tanks in that scale  :embarrased:

Thanks  :embarrased:,
The trees are very simple (I learned this method from better modellers).
1. Cut seafoam branches to wanted shape and size - they can be bought from various sources just google them, I got them locally in a hobby store here.
2. Spray the seafoam with spray adhesive.
3. When the seafoam is covered in glue, put some noch leaves in a box or something and just dip the seafom in the leaves and remove excess leaves.
4. Last spray the tree with hair spray to bond it.

There are many colors for the trees, and especially nice are dark green which I used, olive green and lime green, and you can combine them for better variation.

I got mine from scenics express, but they can probably be bought from any hobby store.

I'm quite advanced into this model, but here is what is going on till now.
The model is from fantastic-plastic, and is a luftwaffe 6 design, didn't get pass the plans stage.
It is my first full resin kit, and I couldn't say it is better or worse than other kits, just that it is a lot of fun to build, and I liked building it :)..

The fuel truck is from Academy, and the figures from preiser luftwaffe ground crew, with minor conversino.
I'm now before painting the plane.

To continue the base, I started with adding oil colors in various shades of dark brown.
I used raw umber, burnt sienna, sepia.
Started with painting lines (rough) on the surface, and then used a large brush with clean spirits to disolve them into the ground. The result is this:

Thanks for watching,
