Macross Build – ES-11D Cat’s Eye

ES-11D キャッツ・アイ 1/72スケールレジンキット タンメンモデルから。

Another Macross build complete. And not a fighter for once! This here is an ES-11D Cat’s Eye, from the Japanese animation “Super Dimensional Fortress Macross”. The kit is a 1/72 scale resin model from Tanmen Models.


If you build garage kits, you may recognize that name. Tanmen did some of the Macross sculpts for Club M a while back. This kit came from when he tried to branch out on his own. I think it’s one of the final Macross kits he ever sculpted.



Pretty typical garage kit. Some pinholes to fix, some warped bits to straighten, some major gaps to fill. I still like the challenge of a GK, though, even though I can never get the canopy parts to fit properly, no matter how many times I try! The display stand was included in the kit, though the decals were extras I had. The original ones were a little roached.



Kit was completed on June 3rd, 2017.
