One of the items on my to-do list since I recently bought a 3D printer is to design/build some sort of a model of the Aegis from Raiden Fighters. As far as I'm aware there's never been a commercial model kit of that one.

Second write-up:
https://stevethefishdotnet.tumblr.com/p ... stic-model

Inspired by the glowing pilot suits in Macross: DYRL, I've painted the pilot figure with reflective paint and the ultraviolet SMD mounted into the cockpit shines on the pilot, making the reflective paint shine beautifully.

That missing engine cover still makes me mad. Hope you didn't pay too much for this.

Huh? It's not missing, it was removed on purpose. It was painted by a professonial, who painted it to look like it has been on a heavy battle and got lots of hits. And I paid nothing, I got the model and the paintjob as a birthday present!

Here's an update on my Tumblr page with images of my work. The orb is nearly complete!

And...

Here's the 5th video on YouTube.

Woah! I haven't looked at this thread since you started the R-9 project, so I'm reacting to the entirety of what you've done so far. Impressive work.

Thanks. I've now done the main painting. I just need to do the wiring, assemble, apply decals, etc. I do this more than playing video games these days, although starting this project has made me play R-Type Final more and I've unlocked a few new ships.

I've gotten back to the R-Type model. Here's video 7.

I recently did a Battlestar Galactica Cylon Raider, and that was easy to light because the ship is essentially a flying saucer clamshell. This R-Type ship is proving to be more work because I had to strategize where to feed the wires through to make it work.

Some updates.

Video 8

Video 9

At the end of the 9th video, you can see the Arrowhead put together and the lights running on it.
