"Overwatch" – 1/72 Macross Destroid Defender by Bandai
This one I completed just recently.
Ever since I first watched the anime series Robotech in the early to mid 80's, I have had a love for mecha. This is linked to the Macross saga with which many are also familiar with. Some may have seen my 1/48 Valkyrie build. this too is from the series. Some of the mechs made their way into BattleTech, a fantastic table top game by FASA which in turn spawned off the Mechwarrior universe. Told you I was a fan boy!
Anyway, I built a 1/72 Regult assault pod back in 2014, also by Bandai, but this time around I wanted a smaller base and still offer a sense of size in relationship to everything else. This mech stand 10m tall so it is not exactly small, so I decided to create and urban scene like the previous build, but I'd off set it against a 1/72 armoured vehicle. Fujimi had a neat Japanese LAV in 1/72 which proved a worth while candidate for the little vignette.
So I am proud to show you my Destroid Defender vignette that I have titled, "Overwatch".
