In Topic: 1/48 Hasegawa Hikaru VF-1A Super w/Lauch arm and Base

13 September 2014 - 05:20 AM

I won't be finishing my own build until the weapons set is released.   I was planning on making my own UMM7 to finish this but there is no point in that now,  I can wait a bit.

 

I just want to do a stress test on the arm then i can start selling to you guys.  I am almost 100% that it's fine,  but want to make sure.   Ultimately it would be up to the builder to make sure that the arm and components are pinned and secure,  but i want to be sure that it won't be my fault if anything goes astray.

 

The mold for this are 100% done,  so I will try to get around to a quick test soon so I can get it in your hands soon.  Price is up in the air but will be very reasonable for something as big as the arm and base are in 1/48.

thanks

Started a formal FS thread.

I know many of you have PM'd me already about interest in a kit,  but please send a new PM now that i am taking orders so that i do not miss anyone.

 

This is a very limited kit and as far as i am concerned right now I am only doing this one set of molds.  It's so expensive to produce i am just hoping to break even and call it a day on this kit.

 

Arm pattern is done and molds for that start this weekend.

 

thanks everyone.

Arm cannon pattern is detailed and done.  This part will be rotocast,  much easier for the modeler compared to the V1 with the split parts,  and hollow casting will make it easier for the arms to hold the part up.

thanks

I will likely just offer all three shipping and payment options,  I will post payment info soon.   I need just another day or so,  I made the decision to remold a couple of parts.  The issue was that on a couple of parts the rivets were too deep,  they were made from foam and even with the lightest touch the rivets were too deep, it was distracting.  I took the first castings of those parts and will re do the rivets today and remold tomorrow,  it will only be a delay of a couple of days.  These are the only parts i should have that issue with,  I made them before i was using renshape for stuff this size.

 

I actually just poured the first arm part mold so I am still being productive on this thru the delay.

thanks
