Great! I'll be VERY interested on how the paint wears once you do transformations with it. The tolerances are VERY tight in places...

What kind of paint are you using? Acrylic or lacquer based? Are you airbrushing it?

It's Tamiya Lacquer based TS-27 Matt White. I've noticed it's a bit harder to snap the parts with primer and paint applied though not as bad as I thought at the beginning. I assembled the parts first, disassembled, painted and assembled again. Unfortunately I'm not using an airbrush but a regular spray.

It requires more skill then an airbrush as spray is unforgivable when you make a mistake ;/ You have less control, can't mix or thin the paint and you have to be extremely careful to apply the right amount. Sprays tend to release too much paint, especially when a part is small. It's not an acrylic paint so you won't be able to wipe it away with water.

Cool

Looking GREAT Urei! Please post more images as you go. I'm fascinated to see how the matte white looks as it goes together!

I totally get you on the difficulty controlling the spray cans. Airbrush is SO much more controllable, even if it IS a huge mess to clean up all the airbrush parts. I'm used to using carbon dioxide as my propellant for my airbrush, but since I moved, I haven't had a current tank and my regulator might be broken... Not a lot of airbrushing going on at my place right now... I've been stuck with spray cans when I need a smooth surface too... A brush on the small detail parts, but a 00 is all I'm using on the VF-25F. We'll see on the VF-25S...

Thanks for sharing!

I'll post some more pictures once I'll get my duties out of the way I'm thinking of marking the lines right after painting the parts or segments. It'll be a lot easier. I'll be using an ultra fine brush to apply the thinned matt black tamiya paint. I'll go for a 50-50 proportion. If you have another suggestion I'll gladly listen

Having taken a look at what the 2009 MF calendar had as pictures, I wasnt too pleased to see that they only had one picture for every two months. Cheapskates.

I am rather pleased that I rather bought the A Song of Ice and Fire calendar.

Personally, I will be extremely content if I can ever get my hands on this promotional poster:



And I don't know why they don't have one. Seriously, is it that difficult to make? Its just her promotional poster since the 1st ep!

Oh, that is quite a beautiful piece, if I do say so myself. There will be a HBO series soon, right?

A lot of promotional posters over there are like that. What you get for the price are huge, beautifully printed images that can be torn out of the calendar so you don't have to keep the whole thing in storage when 2009 comes to a close.

Yeah, it seems so. The pilot is being being made, IIRC, but it has yet to be decided if the series will be picked up as such. I wouldnt know how they could do justice to some of the more, ah, gigantesque battles with 50,000 people or more on each side, but lets hope they somehow manage to bring over the feeling of the books at least, and cast good actors.

At the very least a series would hopefully motivate GRRM to get off his ass and finish the damned books, instead of traveling to cons all year long.

In any case, if the two images I saw ( Lord Eddard polishing Ice under the Start hearttree and John Snow with Ghost ) are any indication, I should have something fantastic to gaze at every month.

Cool that it comes with the Ghost drones! I couldn't tell if it needs full painting to make it Luca's green version...

Will this be offered with an optional Shotacon shortpants outfit for the Battroid version?

I got my Ozma version last week and its totally legit! I'll be waiting until after the holidays to start work on it though.

They're only showing the prototype, which uses the VF-25S as a base. The final retail version will be colored in full green.

Also, seems it will come with 3 Ghost fighters, which explains the expense.

Haha! I don't know if I will purchase the Luca though. It was the most useless fighter in the entire series.

Then how can you have the Skull Squadron flying into battle across your desk if they don't have their logistics guy feeding them battlefield info?

You know, sometimes I wonder about that. The series never really show the audience of Luca's supposed usefulness. I've always thought they got their feed from the Macross Quarter, while Luca was actually there to gather information, not to distribute them.
