Ever since I watched the "Robotech" animated TV series back in the 80's by Harmony Gold, I have been hooked on mecha! The Battletech series of board games, PC games and animation were based on the "Robotech" designs.cyclops 

Anyway, after all these years, I have tracked down the model kits and here is my first foray a "Zentradi battle pod" - they were the bad guys Smile 

As this is "military" in a manner of speaking, I have decided to post it here - maybe a Sci-Fi section is required in the future?

Its not a massive kit, but it is quite impressive in term of size.

I'm looking forward to sharing its birth and completion.

Well, I've been busy, but not that busy as it's been too cold in the garage... (UK winter)

But, any way.. I have managed to do some work on the dio for the kit.

Here is the proposed build...

Thanks for kind comments, it's a bit rough but I think it captures the intent.

Here are two more pics, with and without a flash as they show up different details. The paving was laborious but well worth it - 00 scale paving!
There is still a tree , street lights and some other odds and ends to added - the sign board emphasises the location of the vignette.

The work continues, and I've finally completed the base and have begun work on the battle pod.

Here are some pics of the completed base.

I've started to do some chipping (first time) and am having fun doing it, I'm just worried I'll over do it!!

Your thoughts and comments are welcome.

Man that is looking fantastic! I'm not a sci-fi fan but this is just mesmerizing, can't wait for the next update.

Cheers!!

It's been fun doing this build, it's totally different to anything I've done before. Very Happy

My past attempts as a kid at sci-fi resulted in the butchering of jet fighter kits....... Embarassed

Well, the battle pod is approaching completion, in the pics below you can see a partially weathered and assembled main body and I've started weathering up the "feet" and legs.

Macross (Robotech) 1/72 Regult Assult Pod - My next build 173_zpsyhapznfn

Macross (Robotech) 1/72 Regult Assult Pod - My next build 177_zpsvb1nc3j8

What is really cool, is that I never don this level of weathering before (not required on motorbikes) Wink , so its been a bit of a steep learning curve reading up on new methods and improving old techniques!!

It's been a blast!! What a Face
