    The next project started over the weekend; give away on the topic if you recognise the quote :)

    Thunderchild's SDF1 - originally from Macross or Robotech, depending where in the world you are :)

    Main gun, port side - the front bit

    I don't want to look it up, I want to be surprised. These subsections are coming out really well. Maybe it's from being a machinist for so long and making parts that I had no idea what they were being used for. Take your time, I look forward to seeing the outcome!! ;)

    Hmmm, we got the "American" version in SA, branded as Robotech :) (loved it as a kid, hence the joy when I found TC's fantastic model here )
