    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    LoL yea. But seeing how the 1/72 kit disintegrated with too complex mechanism implemented on the hip bars, I have little faith in their partial perfect-transformation in the DX...the locking mechanism looks a bit flimsy to hold the presumably high amount of metal contents in the DX. But I'd assume Bandai view it as an optional gimmick, because TBH, you dont need to remove the metal bar if you don't want to rotate the upper torso.

    So are the legs gonna be grey, with white landing gear doors? And grey fingers?? Who in their right state of mind would buy that??

    Arcadia 1/60 VF-1J 35th Anniversary

    You vs the guy she tells you not to worry about...
  5. Exactly my thoughts. But hey, to each his/her own . On a side note, anyone knows if there are shapeway/3D printed acessories for the sdf-1? say for example 1/3000 gripper arm+VF-1 during launch, or 1/3000 monster or destroids?
  6. Sorry, but not sorry! : D But yeah, it's a great little addon to the collection. Now hunting for the ever elusive max...

    Macross maintenance.

    Just a quick submission from what I wrote in the other thread. Issue with locked shoulder cover on VF-1 v2 Yamato / Arcadia due to dried paint smudge on inner shoulder cover : Apart from the normal cracked hinges, one of the shoulder covers wouldn't move. Seems to be a rare case...anyone experienced this? Probably some residual glue seeped in somewhere & locked it in place. Going to patiently figure this out. EDITED : Pried the sides of the shoulder cover, heard faint crackling sound (i.e harden glue breaks) and now shoulder is free! Inspected the areas and saw dried smugdes of white paint on the biceps (Picture 2). Someone accidentally sprayed paint during assembly 10+ years ago and it dried, locking the shoulders to the biceps. Glad it was an easy fix. Also, the diameter of the shoulder pins feels a teeny-weeny bit large for the shoulder hinge holes, presumably for minimal interference fit. Should I find replacement pins that are slightly smaller or just grind the original pins? The pin ends are pretty clean (no burrs), which explains why the outer hinges are intact & only the inner hinges crack (Picture 3).
  11. Im sorry! I really am! But it was an emergency, and I had to make a run to the ER!! Child is safe now :-P By the way, apart from the normal cracked hinges, one of the shoulder covers wouldn't move. Seems to be a rare case...anyone experienced this?
