Here's some reference materials for an upcoming project. It's gonna be a grueling journey but it'll be worth it. I've always wanted to do something "VF-2SS" (Mecha from Macross II movie) inspired but never had the opportunity until now.

WIP shots of the "Thunderbolt" project sample. This piece was a fairly quick mock up to be used as a guide/reference for my upcoming exclusive for Macrossworld Con. I chose the VF-11 Thunderbolt from the Mac Plus series due to it's size. I believe it's one of the larger Valkyries in the Macross universe.

Scrolling through my phone for pics and ran into this one. It was probably about 2 years back when I was living and working out of an 800 sq ft apartment in Anaheim. I used the bath tub as a dust free spray booth since I didn't have access to an outdoor area or garage at the time.
The spray results are as good as any, if not better. Just line the inside of the tub with newspaper, turn on the fan and spray away! Once you're done spraying close the shower curtain to contain the spray dust to help minimize clean up. Everyday you take a shower it automatically washes the mess away lol!!
On a more serious note, this method is not a good idea for obvious health reasons. Short term/temporary use is fine especially when you don't have a choice. I'm just glad I don't have to do that anymore.

Macrossworld.com is holding a small convention later this year and it just so happened to be Macross's 30th anniversary. I'm going to help produce a couple of low-run exclusives for the con. The first piece is going to be on the lower end in terms of pricing so it's going to be small and non-transformable. This way the parts count will be lower and pricing will also be lower.
