  1. Bandai DX VF-31

    I do like the Armored, but not the Arad's scheme. Does this armor appear on any other scheme?

    Then why aren't they consistent? There's no reason why it should start off deep and go light have way though. Bad molding or old dies or too much paint - I don't know but I don't buy they were entirely intentional.
  3. My Very Own Premium Finish Valkyries

    That's just stupid... they made a mistake and won't own up to it. I've found that if I used a really sharp mechanical pencil, I can "draw" in the lines of the really shallow panels lightly. The problem is sometimes there is no consistency in the panel line depth, it can go from ok to really shallow in the same line.

    Beautiful Noel!!! Glad it worked out so well. All you gotta do is a light panel line on that beauty!
  5. Bandai DX VF-31

    Damnit!! Originally not a fan of Arad's Teal & Grey scheme - was gonna skip it, but now I gotta get it - sucker for all the extra add-ons even if it seems like overkill. At least you don't see much of the Teal & Grey scheme (hidden under all that!), but unfortunately now I have to try to get one to dress the armour on (it would be nice to get a bundle set, but I doubt it).

    Yeah I think off the top of my head, there's the arrow near the front, red "DANGER" near all the nozzles, "BEWARE OF BLAST" at the end near the foot and one of those yellow warning data rectangles on the back calf as well as one of those Hasegawa fast pack designations; white "NP-FP-01" I believe.

    Gorgeous!!! Turned out so well. Can't wait to see the paneled version.

    Come on VF-4!!!
  9. Hi-Metal R

    Amazing!!! Fabulous work, congrats on the best looking VF-2SS I've seen from Bandai HM-R line.
  10. Wave 1/72 VF-4 lightning

    My favourite design, but there's just something not right about it... hard to put my finger on it. The proportions just seem a little "off" here and there and it all adds up to something that's close, but just doesn't "do it" for me. It seems a little "awkward" to me - maybe bad camera lenses chosen in the photos. I think the nose needs to be a little sleeker and the back end seems a bit too wide and not thick enough and the wings outside of the engine pylons seem to have too much surface area. I think the Yamato/Acadia 1/60 seems closer to the lineart or feeling of the design. I just wished Hasegawa did their interpretation of this beautiful bird!

    Excellent advice, I've always found decals different from every manufacturer. However, Bandai decals seem indestructible yet brittle, they seem impervious to MicroSET/SOL and Mr. Set/Softer - at least the old VF-25 kits were that way.
  12. Yamato 2202

    OMG!!! I want that Cosmo tiger booster/missle pack!!!
  13. Legos, anyone?

    I ended up buying it in store before Christmas when I literally, knew a guy who knew a guy who knew a guy who worked at a Lego store and he heavily hinted that there was a shipment of 36 boxes the next day. I got there at 11am (they opened at 10am) and 20 were sold already and they had already gone through their reserved list (I couldn't get on the reserved list at the store because I called the next day after they were available on Sep 15 instead of the 14th when I was busy online with their servers crashing on me and after spending 2 hours to get through on the phone!). Argh! They are the Danish Bandai!!! Yeah, I wished there was a take a number reservation, my online VIP reservations were supposed to email me when they became available online, I only got an email last week about that. Try calling your local Lego Store, you might have better luck there than online. I have actually seen a quite a few Saturn V sets at the lego stores in stock - highly recommend that as its the best build experience I've ever had with lego - I think its the perfect size/length and it displays so well. The UCS Milf is a little too long/complex and you can't really swoosh it around as much as its heavy and fragile - great for display, but even that its a little too big.
  14. Hi-Metal R

    Great stand!!! Which one is that? Wished they included it with the toy.
  15. Hasegawa Gerwalk VF-1D and SDF attack mode

    WooohooO!!! I missed it last time, didn't know it was a limited release thing. Hoping for the Minmay figure to be included too.
