Oh yes, I plan on getting invid and the Mospeda generation veritechs done. It'll be a bit as the major limit is funds. I'd love to set something up on kickstarter as I know there's a lot of fans out there that'd kill to see them made, but as it's content that there's no offical rights to they won't accept it.
The original Macross has always been on the top of my fav list but the mospeda arc is defiantely right up there as well and I plan on doing stuff for it. Sadly the southern cross arc completely sucks IMO, I like the bioroid suit designs but that arc of the series was total garbage and had terrible mech designs.
The Alpha fighters from Mospeda are pretty small, around 30% smaller than the old macross veritechs. (macross veritechs are 12.7m tall and alphas are 8.75m) The invid are pretty tiny they seem big because for most of the series they are fighting the cyclones but the cyclones are basically just human sized power armor and not mechs. So they'd make for some fairly small models in battletech scale. Invid are between 8-20 feet tall depending on which version it is
Could always go with artistic fiat and ignore the actual scale and make them the same size as battletech minis (or 28mm scaled minis) so that way you can see the details and it'd be pleasing on the modelling aspect even if it's not technically correct.
I dug these out the first is the original Macross mechs, the Zentraedi figure is not really accurate as they suffer greatly from floating scale in the series. At this scale they'd be correct per their mecha, however they are routinely as large as the veritechs when shown fighting them in hand to hand, additionally all of the doors and innerworkings on the SDF-1 are sized for veritechs and they mention that they were uncharged from the original crashed vessel which was sized for Zentraedi. There's also the timeless episode where Max dresses his veritech up in a Zentraedi uniform to hide while trapped onboard an enemiy ship, clearly not possible if they are several meters dissimular in height.
Size chart for the 3rd arc Mospeda or Invid Invasion
Photoshopped vcombination of the two, based on eyeballing the human figures to the same size. Also corrected the Zentraedi scale to how it's more commonly seen in teh series.
So nerdy fandom facts asside if I were to approach doing minis for the later gen mecha, should I do it all in the same scale or go with a floating non-fixed scale and have everything roughly the same size? Or possibly do the macross stuff in CBT scale and go entirely seperate to 28mm for the later gen stuff that way I could make use out of the cyclone power armor troops? (aka the transforming bikes) The invid would be about 50-60mm if I go that route.
