  1. Hasegawa 1:4000 SDF-1 (DYRL)

    I was wondering when Hasegawa would get around to doing this one. Reliable as ever though, doing as many variants as they can. Which is good, since it increases chances that they'll do a full VF-31 line by the end, unlike Bandai.

    Stickers/decals meant to replace painting in a block of color are almost always a Very Bad Idea. But it's a shame about the quality nonetheless... masking and painting the pin-striping will be a bit of a chore.
  3. Bandai 1/72 Scale Transformable Macross Δ Kits

    Sounds like it's best to paint as much as possible and use decals only when absolutely necessary. That's too bad.
  4. Bandai 1/72 Scale Transformable Macross Δ Kits

    Eh, I don't mind the borders. I'm used to trimming then on regular aircraft kits and race car kits (those have a lot of decals too).

    Haven't dealt with Bandai decals in a while. Are they thick and hard to conform to curves and details?
  6. Bandai 1/72 Scale Transformable Macross Δ Kits

    As long as Hasegawa does an E, I'll be (mostly) happy. If they were all shown with Super packs, then I'm hopeful that we'll see Bandai do a Super VF-31F and Super VF-31S after the Super VF-31C gets released. I saw a customized Super VF-31E in a model mag and I thought it looked fantastic... I wonder if they will release any more DeCulture variations?
  7. Bandai 1/72 Scale Transformable Macross Δ Kits

    The harder the paintjob and the more the decals, the more I love a model. I got into models decades ago, for the hobby enjoyment of building and finishing. I'm not into transforming and posing anymore, so the toys don't mean much to me. So bring on the models.
  8. Bandai 1/72 Scale Transformable Macross Δ Kits

    Oh, darn.... got my hopes up. I don't buy the completed toys. Just plastic models.
  9. Bandai 1/72 Scale Transformable Macross Δ Kits

    If it's not an engineering problem, I have to wonder why Bandai is taking so long to release a VF-31E. I must admit I find the color scheme quite eye-catching, and I'd really like the 'set' to be complete. Not sure what to think about the super versions. The VF-25 had a standalone super parts set with markings for all the VF-25s, but so far Bandai seems to be doing only unit-specific super sets for the VF-31s. No 'generic' VF-31 super parts set. I would guess they might do a Super VF-31F and Super VF-31S too... did all the VF-31s sport super packs at some point in the show? I would buy MANY VF-171s, especially if they did different variants. VF-17, VF-171, VF-171EX, RVF-171... It's a commonly seen design and therefor conspicuously absent from the plastic model line-ups.

    Oh, is there a Bandai VF-31A web exclusive?
  11. Bandai 1/72 Scale Transformable Macross Δ Kits

    Based on Hasegawa's past release strategy, I have to believe they will eventually cover all the VF-31 variants. Since they've gone so far as to make up decal variants and model variants in the past to milk moulds, and have covered things like versions from video games and rides. How could they skip main characters from the show? Can only assume that Hasegawa has a VF-31F and VF-31S in the works, with a VF-31E later on hopefully.
  12. Bandai 1/72 Scale Transformable Macross Δ Kits

    What's the VF-31J convention exclusive? I only know of regular, super, 35th Anniversary, and DeCulture versions from Bandai, and a regular fighter from Hasegawa. I thought both Bandai and Hasegawa had released green Drakens, with Bandai offering markings for one pilot and Hasegawa offering markings for 2 pilots? Or am I misunderstanding? I would KILL for some VF-171 kits. From either company.
  13. Bandai 1/72 Scale Transformable Macross Δ Kits

    Does the Bandai model seem engineered to allow for space to add the folded dish?
  14. Bandai 1/72 Scale Transformable Macross Δ Kits

    I'm assuming they'd provide both options. I haven't seen Macross Delta... is the dish mechanism complicated? If so, that may be why Bandai hasn't done one - couldn't figure out how to make the dish work in the context of a transforming plastic model. And they seem to frown on parts swapping for transformations now.
  15. Bandai 1/72 Scale Transformable Macross Δ Kits

    I'm more hopeful that Hasegawa will do the VF-31E. Plus a whole range of super variants, I hope.
