I got the elint and super o, and a 1s strike that is almost done, so much of what i have is almost done, need to work on that continuing issue in my life.
For the strike on mine i substituted in a set of wings from the 15th anniversary bandai kit, the resin wings were already warped, but with a full compliment of missiles i bet they would not have a chance, but the styrene wings should hold up nicely. Good thing is that they do not look out of place at all.
I've still got the regular VF-1, VF-1A Super, and VF-1S Strike waiting to be built. When the Hasegawa kits came out, the price on these really dropped. I don't think I paid more than 3000 yen for them.
Took a little bit more time than expected due to a delay at our usual 3D place, but the big wheel thing, the small foot wheel thingy, and a barrel insert detail for the big top cannons is all off for printing now. Once I get those in about a week and a half -2 weeks i should be ready to mold the leg installment.
So the "face" plate detail is done, I only need about an hour or two to finish up the base then off for molds. I tried to take some inspiration from the 1/48 super box art with the repeating pattern of the storm grate looking thing. I put in some round detail in each grate that is a perfect place to act as an LED holder. Also, on the top i have this area set for accepting some 1/2 inch clear acrylic hemi's, should work well as spot lights.
hope to have the molds for all this wrapped up by the end of the week. Arm and base will be available as 2 separate kits, the base is big and I will keep it as cheap as possible but it's going to be hefty amount of mold material on my end, will see how it shakes out.
