Like the design and how the ships are docked
This is the best design to date of the inside of a Robotech Factory or Instillation. I wouldn't mind 1 bit to see more on this design.

Hello:
 This must be a Factory Satellite on steorids :D .

 This is an amazing illustration, you can truly give that feeling of heavy industrial processes been made without the pollution that just make the pics dirty. Some serious work is been done here and you totally made it look awesome :) .

 Keep it up!

Thank you very much, I'm glad you think so. :salute:

Although in the official(Macross) story line, I think the humans have their own "Terran build" factory satellite. But here I think it's more "economical" to use existing infrastructure, of planetoid size. ;-)

Hello:
 And you are most welcome :) .

 Did humans made their own factory sattellites? Because I know about the Three Star Factory Ships (which are awesome). But yeah, to use existing infrastructures is always more economical than making something from scratch :happybounce: .

Judging from some "official" illustrations from Macross 7, that I saw. I think the Macross factories are man made because the structure and aesthetics aren't organic like the Zentraedis. ;-)

One thing I don't like about the Human fleet in the Macross series is that it's still incomparable to a Zentran fleet. Ships are still small, can still be outclass, out gunned, and still not in a million units.

Hello:
 Oh wow, that is something I didn't know. But with the ever crazier designs they make, it might make sense (also that the captured Sattellite was damaged).

 You are not the only one that has those same problems. A friend of mine, and myself too, are of the exact same opinion. That makes me see why UN Spacy wants to evade any contact at all... but yes, human fleets are terribly outgunned and outclassed :( .

But from the movie Macross, Love Do You Remember(my old betamax version, or was it VHS?) At the end, as the subtitles said(i'm basing my reasoning from the subtitles), Exedore explained something like- there are 1 million fleet in the Galaxy. Those 1 million fleet contains 4 million individual ships. And every fleet has a Bodolzed class main base, one would surmised.

I do not think that that kind out production output can be produce by just one Factory satellite. ;-)

I used to argue with my old friend(Warhammer fan) that 1 or 2 Zentran fleet(in millions) can easily wipe clean the Tyranid horde off the Galaxy. :D

It's probably economics. Humans in the series are still practically an endangered specie. And resources are scares most likely.

Hello:
 Yes, I do remember that scene too, although there were like 1000 fleets. That still gives a hugely overwhelming number of ships, soldiers. But still, one can really fail to grasp how big our galaxy really is.

 You are right! There has to be more factory satellites out there :happybounce: .

 Ohh... sadly I do have a Warhammer/Battlefleet Gothic fan friend, but he doesn't know almost nothing of Macross (he knows because of my 3d models). But that discussion could have been quite fun :) .

 Even with the captured technologies, you are right that humans cannot risk having more confrontations, even if they are already colonizing many owrlds in the galaxy. Because I dion't think that any colony, on it's own, could resist what happened to Earth.

When I was still in my Warhammer 40K mode, some years back. I like doing Chaos more, Khorne side. Planning to post my old works again by next month. I'll have old WH40k work on them.

Like you Marcoss, Robotech models by the way. You do this professionally?

See ja next month. ;-)

I love the paintings and drawings, I am a big Macross fan myself! I saw this picture a few weeks ago and spotted the Enterprise right away! I checked out the other drawing and found the Galactica right away also (I didn't pay any attention to where you said it would be).
AtomicGenjin's avatar
That's good to hear. And thank you.

By the way. Sorry bout this, but I'm going to delete(or have deleted) the Macross Battle Fleet.  It's from my old account.
GRIGOLOSI's avatar
That sucks, Well At least i got to see it!

I love the green fog, it gives it a smokey industrial atmosphere and...

...is that the USS Enterprise? You sneaky person you.
AtomicGenjin's avatar
I always do that whenever I do a large illustration. ;-)  Should have seen my earlier work from an earlier account. I took a week or so  for the guys to discover a Battlestar within a Macross fleet. :salute:
GarrettRS's avatar
Well how obvious was it?

Or was it hidden?
AtomicGenjin's avatar
It was positioned beneath an SDF class escort ship, down left on the canvas.  It was a fleet formation. ;-)

This is not the colored version. This just a temporary link.
GarrettRS's avatar
Ok, sorry. Can't find the Battlestar.
