    Finally caved in and got DX VF-1s TV Roy for ¥24k from Manda. DHL was close to ¥8.2k to get it shipped.

    I think the DX 1J & GBP Full Set will be as close to the DX VF-1s TV Roy as well @fschuler for those who are getting it also.:D

    @tekering Holy monkey nuts...what don't you have? :eek: 

    Is that Borg cube made of model kit sprues? Friggin' epic.

    It's a perpetual work-in-progress. I keep adding and subtracting surface greeblies, and tinkering with the internal lighting scheme...

    I've had to put it aside to concentrate on a commission, however.

    Much of the surface detailing is, just like the original pyrotechnic studio model. :cool: 

    You may prefer the view from within... :D

    A girlfriend, obviously. :rolleyes:

    Had to send this to my Mom. She's a huge Trekky (did I spell that right). She has a bit of a Star Trek toy collection in her office.

    Hmmmmm, what sort of commission work?:D :rolleyes:

    That's just awesome...and definitely the most creative use of leftover sprues I've probably ever seen. Great work, man!

    My God. That looks as if it were from QMx or Anvonos. Surely worth what they would've charged too.

    Me, I caved and acquired the DeAgostini one exclusively done for the Eaglemoss range in Japan. For the scale, it's the most accurate to BOBW; even putting the main EM range cubes to shame.

    Yeah, it's one of the best reproductions available at that size, but it's just too tiny to scale with practically anything. A Borg cube has got to dwarf everything else in your fleet, even the SDF-1.
    That's why I knew I'd have to scratchbuild my own, and I'd been stockpiling leftover sprues for over a decade with this project in mind.

    Trying to get this thread back on topic? :p
