    I have a request. In the theme of the lifesize Battlestar Galactica helmets being made in the sci fi thread, I would love to see a pilots helmet!

    The Cat's Eye is definitely up there, and the Comanchero is pretty likely. The Ghost...maybe, maybe not. I'm not sure how well that vehicle lends itself to my designing style...

    Yay!!! Cat's eye!!! :D

    I've also been toying with the idea of making a Robotech thinking cap. With all the models on my design list and my slow progress on them, I'm sure someone will get it done before I ever get round to it though... (said with hope) :)

    Defender

    Hi Thunder,

    You are making a Superb job of your Defender, I can't wait till It's available!

    I just love the Macross, and Robotech robots.

    Janx, would love your model of the Spartan Destroid. (I've got one but in the unmentionable material)

    Paragon, your Mother's Kitchen is Beautiful too, Thank You!

    PLEASE lets have a Macross section in downloads, I just love Robots!!

    Sincerely

    Tom:wave:

    I'd do the Ghost before the Commanchero.

    It's the first reflex technology craft.

    Thats from Macross Zero... a great mini series. The Cheyenne was an amalgam of all the destroids together in simplicity.

    I watched Macross Zero a bit ao...I must have missed it. Anyway, once all the other Destroids are done, that one might be interesting to make.

    Aww nuts...

    I didn't even know about the CHEYENNE!

    Well.
    Only one thing I can do.
    RESEARCH RESEARCH RESEARCH! Cuz that one is going into the collection! :D

    It does seem a tad more difficult than the old destroids (not surprising considering the age of the old ones) but I'm always up for a challenge!

    There I go getting ahead of myself again... First models first!

    Hey T.C.,

    I've been watching the development of that model myself. His SDs are great but that EX Garland is full sized :D

    Try to use the Google language tools to translate the page from Japanese to English. A bit of warning though, it will translate into very rough English.

    Gey G1!
    You're actually the one who tipped me off about the EX Garland! Since then I've been checking in from time to time and following the progress. So it's all thanx to you! :D

    I can't seem to get into the whole SD thing. Just personal preference I guess.

    Good news ... The local Sci-Fi TV Station will be playing the new Robotech movie 'Shadow Chronicles' which means it will be played on other networks.

    It's quite good and I am a Jack McKinney fan too.
