    I've got one of those big inflatable fingers too! That really is awesome, all kidding aside, and you never have to worry about it taking up a lot of space!

    All of you who make these "MICROMACHINES", always blow my mind with your work.
    I am always AMAZED at amount of detail that you are able to put into these models at this scale, and have them look the way that you do.

    I (humbly) take my hat off to you, sir.

    JOB WELL DONE!!!

    Maybe 40 years ago, I could give you guys a run for your money, I was into micro models way back then and my favorite scale was 1/72. But now, it just hurts my eyes to be able to build so small. Great job on your skills and ability to manipulate those small parts with your fingers.

    I can pretty much gauge the decline of my eyesight by the timeline of me switching scale of model builds, early teens 1/144th, mid twenty's 1/72nd, early thirty's 1/48th, and now I'm thinking of going up to 1/32nd but it's too expensive.

    Guild ship from the Movie "Dune"

    I know it's not Macross/Robotech, but it DEFINITELY is small. Here is my latest "Micronized" build. The Guild ship from the Movie Dune. about 1 1/2 inches long

    Q: When you are building on a smaller scale, do you finish quicker because you need to cut and glue less ?

    it's about the same amount of time, because even though you need to cut and glue less, the pieces are ALOT smaller, and handling them is a tad more difficult.

    Beautiful build of the guild ship.

    You always blow my mind away with how small some of your builds are.jawdrop
