Switching gears. Macross!!

So, I gave up on that RWB Porsche. The conversion kit was pure shit. Nothing fit right and the casting was terrible. Scrapped..  I've since finished my Zaku that the post with the figure was about.

and finished redesigning my hobby site. (see above)

A few weeks back, I went to a local contest called Spruefest. One of their sponsors was Tamiya and they were selling some new kits for cheap prices, so I picked up the new 1/32 Corsair F4U-1D and the 1/48 BF 109-G6, both new releases. I don't even think the 109 was out yet at the time. So, with those purchases, and the fact i've been working on my Macross VF-1S Valkyrie (Hasegawa) off and on for a while, i've decided to build just airplanes for a while. At least until I get tired of them.

Here's the progress on the Valk.  The fit is ok for the most part, not as good as Bandai or Tamiya, but there are seams to fill and some spots that need reworking. I'm planning to put it in a flight display, so I still need to figure out how to mount it, but there's plenty of time for that, i'm in no rush.

So anyway, that's it for now. I'll try to update my blog more often.... assuming anyone's actually following it. *crickets*...
