1:100 "Macross Factory" with VF-1J Armored Valkyrie (close-up)
New views into my "Robotech Factory" kit, which sees its 2nd life with lots of modifications (as replacements and enhancements for poor or damaged original parts).
This original IMAI kit without vinyl caps was part of the surrounding factory
, which was marketed by Revell (here in Europe) in a double pack together with a Tomahawk battroid in the early 1980ies - today a sought-after collectible.
The Valkyrie kit is one of the 1st generation: no vinyl caps, so everything is "rattling", and the kit in the picture has already been built for the second time, resurrected from the scarpyard.
To fit into the hangar surroundings, I did some heavy weathering and denting to the kit, and posing it in this "beaten" posture just adds to the atmosphere that more has to be done about it than just changing oil...
As an addition to the older paper print scans, the hangar is now populated with 1:100 figures. Most of them were contained in the original kit, plus some Preiser technicians in 1:100 scale. Funny thing is that the original figures are much smaller than the Caucasian Preiser figures... well, that's the clash of cultures, I guess?
The truck is also a 1:100 model, from a company called Roskopf (long, long gone - the truck is maybe 20 years old!) which spezialized in military vehicles in this unusual scale. The crane is scratch-built, though, made up from an X-Wing Fighter's landing gear and spare parts from Dorvack PAs.
The whole factory
sits in a wooden transport box with neon lighting from above - this is the actual light in the picture, no extra light was used, and it matches the cold hangar atmosphere well?
Beet root sugar refining factory, Vierverlaten, Netherlands
This beet root sugar refining factory in Vierverlaten is now 112 years old and still going strong. Another refinery near the city of Groningen was closed this year. When operational at the end of each year, the plumes of steam can be seen from miles around. With a westerly wind, the sweet (and to some nauseating) smell of the factory permeates the city in the background.
