    This was bound to happen...gray market VF's?

    Hey people, just picked up my super space parts, and have yet to fit them on a valk. But from what I can see, they look good. Will try and see if I remember how to upload pics.........

    Xigfrid has an excelent review on the strike pack set a page back, with pics and a thorough inspection. In my case, I think that for this price, it's a pretty good deal.

    Is this the KO? The finish looks pretty convincing to my eyes

    Just purchased a ssp set off showZstore. At 72.99 shipped, not exactly cheap, but preferred to try one out, and if it looks good, will complete the rest of the VFs' that need them.

    Could be the light through the plastic giving that effect. Is that the KO VF-1s ?

    Just shot them a mail asking just that (showZ). By the way, did You fix the mounting bar on Yours Xigfrid?

    Hopefully one of these shops will have the super/strike parts as well. Would like to dress up 5 VF-1 valks that look a bit naked....

    Does anyone make repro canopies?

    Would You mind posting a pic of the canopy ?

    Does anyone make repro canopies?

    Hey danth, You could try removing the nosecone from the fuselage and popping off the D shaped piece that covers the canopys' hinge. The D piece is usually glued in, but if You use a sharp tool like a box cutter, You might be able to wedge it in and pry the piece off. Next step, put the canopy in hot water and wait till its pliable enough for it to warp back into shape, and tape it tightly back on the nosecone for a few hours. If it ends up foggy, You can always polish it back, there are tons of videos on youtube how to. This might seem like a crazy idea, but I would definitely give it a shot, unless someone around here is willing to cast one off of theirs.....anyways, good luck !

    DX Chogokin VF-1J

    If the the thigh swivel joint isn't ratcheted, then it's very possible for the legs to have that funky outward look to them in fighter mode, even if they do tab into the backpack.

    MΔ - VF-9

    Yep sounds good to me. I remember buying some ink used for tampos on toys but was a pain to get my hands on it. Airbrushed a Yamato Vf-1A on some parts and it never rubbed off...this dyeing method seems way easier and uniform to get done though. Thanks for the info and cheers !

    MΔ - VF-9

    Hey Xigfrid, that is looking beautiful, awesome work!! Any idea if these can be printed in other colors besides white plastic ? Perhaps blue, or red..... Thanks and have a good one !!

    Hi Xigfrid! Great F-14! Would You mind sharing who You commissioned it to? Thanks

    Your most recent Macross or toy purchase! General thread.

    I personally like the look of the naked sdf-1..... when I find one at a decent price I'll just weather it up a bit, all those painted on "lights" the premium has makes it look a bit off to my eyes

    Hard points on Yamato 1/60 VF-17 wings?

    I personally don't have these super parts but You shouldn't have to extend the legs 1 click in order to mount them. Extending the legs in fighter mode means dislodging the tabs on the backpack/arms that tab into the legs, the design of this VF is not meant to do this with or without the superparts.

    Arcadia VF-0S Broken Metal Hinge

    Hey Darotower, where in S. America do You live? If You can get Your hands on an intact hip bar, try taking it to a artisan jeweller. They sometimes cast copies from other metal jewellry pieces, but You would have to ask if if they could do it in steel and heat treat it. You might have some luck, and not have to break the bank taking that route.

    Arcadia 1/60 VF-0S Premium Finish

    To facilitate thepanel wash is my guess. Or He put together a Yamato VF-1 kit and liked it so much decided to repeat the build process on the VF-0S......
