Something something gunpla and Macross. My account got hacked and they deleted my bio. So I'll use this for now

While transforming this kit I found myself both in awe and frustrated. Frustrated when I didn't understand how things fit and pleasantly surprised when I finally figured it out. It ain't much of a looker from some angles and it makes fragile sounding creaking noises but it satisfies the Macross itch I've been feeling lately. I know these kits are old news and have been reviewed before so I'll keep it short. If you love transforming jets and are a big fan of Macross then this is worth adding to your collection. There are the chogokins but they're so much more expensive. Do some panel lining, water slide decals and a flat coat and this thing will look amazing. Just pick your favorite mode to display and leave it alone. . . . #macross #plamo #gunplabuilder #macrossfrontier #vf25 #unspacey #sms #マクロス
My wife's second ever kit and she goes and builds the Freedom Gundam lol. Proud of her and so happy she tries to take a passing interest in my hobbies. This thing is freaking massive. It touches the top of the photo booth lol. She just needs to finish the accessories and it'll be on to the next for her. 😊 #gunplabuilder
This thing is such a hand grenade lmao. The gaps on this kit while in fighter mode is comical. That said it should be decent in battroid mode since it would essentially be a Zeta Gundam-- I hope 😂 I'll find out tomorrow after I transform it! . . . #macross #plamo #gunplabuilder #macrossfrontier #vf25 #unspacey #sms #マクロス
So while the Kampfer gloss coat is drying I decided to start snapping this kit together. I have to admit I've been intimidated by this thing. Not sure why. Probably because of the transformation gimmick and all the bad reviews it gets. Anyhow it's been unjustified as it's been a fun build so far. I plan on tearing it all back down so I can paint it. If anyone has recommendations for the feet paint color. I'm all ears. I love the color on the chogokin so I'm looking to replicate that. . . . #macross #macrossplus #vf19 #plamo #gunplabuilder #macrossfrontier #vf25 #unspacey #sms #deculture #マクロス
Human Debris.. Gunpla Debris.. messing around with my left over parts. I don't intend to paint this but it's more of a reminder of what I have laying around that I can pull from for future projects 🧐 . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #titansmkii #hguc #hgucrevive #rx78 #hgbf #twilightaxis #plasticmodels #zetagundam #buildfighters #buildfighterstry #lightningzetagundam #ironbloodedorphans #gunplamafia #gundamtristan
Ah finally finished snapping the accessories together. Been away from building this past week cuz I was on a short vacation with the family but I'm back in the groove! Can't believe I missed out on anime expo with all the cool shit that went down there! Looked like some proper fun 😭 Next year.. maybe I'll do something for GWBC 🤔 . . . #gunpla #gundamstagram #mecha #anime #plamo #gundam #bandai #ibo #ironbloodedorphans #mikazuki #barbatos #gunplabuilder #kitbash #mastergrade #highgrade #gundam00 #re100 #tekkadan #flauros #ryuseigo #buildfighters #hguc #hgibo #kimaris #kimarisvidar
So this is NOT the Hasegawa VF-19EF/A I have been working on. After I lost out on the preorder for the YF-19 Full Set I stewed on it for awhile. Anyways I used a coupon on eBay and picked this sucker up for a decent price! I prefer the SMS badging anyway. Ugh the last time I had a transformable Valkyrie I was just a young boy. It was also a swap meet boot leg Robotech VF1. Back then even the bootleg was made of metal! Bonus clip I love that the movie gave more screen time to Lucy.  Oh and Lucy > Myung. It’s the freckles. Fight me. . . . #macross #macrossplus #vf19 #plamo #gunplabuilder #macrossfrontier #isamudyson #yf19 #unspacey #sms #deculture #yakdeculture #マクロス
With the heat wave in Socal I haven't been able to work on the Kampfer. My garage where I paint hits 100+ degrees on 90 degree days. During this heat wave I've seen it hit 130! I really need to install some roof vents. In the meantime I've been snapping together the Kimaris Vidar. The question is.. to paint this guy or not to paint. 🤔 most likely not 😂
Well I didn't get a chance to take pics while the sun was out.. what with 'Murica Day and all. So I suppose this paint scheme is fitting! I already posted the main suit but the backpack wasn't done. Come to think of it there's a couple veriniers that I forgot to paint for the backpack. 🤦🏻‍♂️ Oh well I'll paint those later. In the meantime I'm calling this thing done. Hope you boys and girls like it! . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #titansmkii #hguc #hgucrevive #rx78 #hgbf #twilightaxis #plasticmodels #zetagundam #buildfighters #buildfighterstry #lightningzetagundam #gunplamafia #gundamtristan
Holy shit. It's done. This has been one long project. From the design and which-kits-do-I-pillage-from, to procrastinating to finding time to work on it. From the first pic until tonight it was two months lol. All I care is that its fucking DONE. The matte coat literally just dried and I couldn't wait to slap it all together before getting at least one pic. Officially this has been named the "RXMSZAN1GM-78006LGTGMMK Tristan Plus" lol thanks for making it stick @94c_298 ! I'm going to take some better pics of this thing tomorrow. I'll also do a video walk through of what kits I used for those that are interested. As a side note-- tonight's episode of Build Divers was a snoozefest. Correction. Besides Ayame's IRL reveal, tonight's episode was a snoozefest. 😂 G'nite fam! . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #titansmkii #hguc #hgucrevive #rx178titans #hgbf #twilightaxis #plasticmodels #zetagundam #buildfighters #buildfighterstry #lightningzetagundam #gunplamafia #gundamtristan
Slowly but surely getting there! Gotta get the next one together so I can paint. . . . #macross #macrossplus #vf19 #plamo #gunplabuilder #gunpla #macrossfrontier #isamudyson #yf19 #unspacey #sms #deculture
Got the hands and knees guard things painted. Never showed the rear thrusters on the legs. First time trying the heat stained look. Doesn't look quite right but pretty sure where I went wrong. On another note, finally moving the needle on the VF19. I'll mask off the cockpit and do some seam line work. One more thing. I'm sure I'm not alone in this but is it normal to have like 5 concurrent projects going at the same time?? . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #titansmkii #hguc #hgucrevive #rx178titans #hgbf #twilightaxis #plasticmodels #zetagundam #buildfighters #buildfighterstry #lightningzetagundam #gunplamafia #gundamtristan #macross #macrossplus #vf19 #macrossfrontier #isamudyson #yf19 #unspacey #sms #deculture #yakdeculture
Was able to get the topcoat on while the sun was setting yesterday. Thank goodness for summer eh? Just need to finish up the hands, weapons and backpack. In other news I'm beginning to procrastinate on the VF19 cuz I need to start masking. I.hate.masking. 😂 . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #titansmkii #hguc #hgucrevive #rx178titans #hgbf #twilightaxis #plasticmodels #zetagundam #buildfighters #buildfighterstry #lightningzetagundam #gunplamafia #gundamtristan #macross #macrossplus #vf19 #macrossfrontier #isamudyson #yf19 #unspacey #sms #deculture #yakdeculture
I ran out of top coat to finish Tristan so I started on the VF-19EF/A today. It's been years since I've worked on a kit that requires glue. This is gonna be interesting lol. . . . #macross #macrossplus #vf19 #plamo #gunplabuilder #macrossfrontier #isamudyson #yf19 #unspacey #sms #deculture #yakdeculture
It's a lazy, Macross kind of day for me. Out of the entire Frontier series, this is the only 5 seconds that mattered to me. That's it. I'm going to start on my VF-19 EF/A this weekend. #macross #isamudyson #ripguld #vf19
Finally got the full armor MKII in and immediately threw it on the Titans MKII. Didn't care for it fully armored up so I went with a "Sharing is caring" theme and split up the pieces among the two. I loved the shoulder number plate on the Titans suit too much to cover it. Honestly I just wanted the red armor for the feet. Everything else was a bonus 😁 . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #titansmkii #hguc #hgucrevive #rx178titans #titanstestteam #tamashiinations #robotspirits #advanceofzeta #aoz #kasignature
Hope to have this thing flat coated by this weekend. Got both legs about 95% done with panel lining and decals. . . . #gunplabuilder #gunpla #ガンダム #plamo #bandai #gundam #titansmkii #hguc #hgucrevive #rx178titans #hgbf #twilightaxis #ezsr #ez8 #plasticmodels #plasticcrack #zetagundam #buildfighters #buildfighterstry #lightningzetagundam #gunplamafia #gundamtristan
Someone hit the gym. 😂 @94c_298 finally got it snapped together. Gonna swap some other parts to see what works best. . . . #buildfighters #builddivers #momokapool #bandai #plamo #gunpla #gunplabuilders #gundam #kitbash #ガンダム #hguc #hgdb
