In Topic: 1/48 Hasegawa vf-1a Hikaru with Launch arm

Hey Guys,  yes the Launch arm is still available.   I am casting like a crazy person right now so i can take some time off from casting this winter (and hopefully finish the super armor on the 1/24 valk). 


PM me if you want a launch arm,  i plan on casting until like Thanksgiving time.

Its the Capt's,   I purchased the pattern from him a few years ago.  If anyone needs one of those i have a couple cast up.

No total scratchbuild.


This is amazing! 

So did you start with a kit and improve on it? 

Regardless this is possibly the coolest kit I've seen. I mean my jaw hit my desk when I saw it.

Both,  my follow up post to this mentioned that i checked Macross Manual,  but have no idea where they got their "over 41 meters"  for the length


I mention in the post that i have no definitive #'s,  just doing kind of a fun exercise in trying to figure it out.


When i made the pattern for the 1/72nd i used the 1/144 Yellow Sub kit as reference.   I wound up with barrels to butt measurement of just over 22 inches.  If you take the Macross Manual measurement of 41 meters give or take then 1/72nd should actually be just over 22 inches.


I think I measured the Hi Metal at like 15.5 inches with those barrels,  so really like 1/104  if your getting super technical by what I figured,


Again,  just a fun thought exercise more than anything else.  The official numbers and the line art don't seem to line up all that precisely anyway.



Are you using the 1/72 model for dimension references, or the original specs from the line art?  I wouldn't use a different model as a reference for the dimensions of a fictitious machine... that 1/72 model might be off to begin with ;)
