    Good eye. It's TV Roy with a DYRL head. There are no Arcadia valks in there.

    It's a DYRL unit but it doesn't really matter to me if it's a TV insignia. I forgot I have the master file books stashed away somewhere too.

    The ever growing duplicate army. Still on the fence as to which Hikaru 1S I'd like to keep as my 'main' valk: the PF version or my old Yamato with rainbow canopy (bottom right). Oh there's something wrong with one of the VF-1s. Can anyone spot it?

    Oh I know the promo pics were like that but that's no guarantee the final product will have it. But it looks like Bandai kept the clearer canopy for the final release. It'd be nice if they carried it over to the remaining 31s, even if it's inconsistent with previous releases. I already have a bunch of inconsistent canopies with the VF-1s.

    Hmmm not really digging the green arrow. There's the weird brownie/Kakizaki hybrid that floats by the park window near the end just to get blown up, but that's just another skull unit. I guess I'll just take something from real world aircraft.

    They look a lot like clear brochure holders. https://www.amazon.com/Clear-Acrylic-Brochure-Holder-Business/dp/B00MNTRG7G
  7. Arcadia 1/60 Super VF-1J Max & Millia Release

    With all the recent discussion on hardpoint differences, thought I'd add in my recent experiences. Yesterday I finally got around to Yeti'ing my CF units, which of course meant finally putting on all their weapons and putting them on Yeti stands. On my TV VF-1A, the two innermost hardpoints were really loose. The missiles attached pretty easily but also moved at the slightest nudge. One of the outer hardpoints was pretty snug and tight but still worked fine. The other outer hardpoint was completely sized incorrectly. No matter how much force I used or however I twisted and turned, I couldn't get the missiles to attach properly. I swapped missiles and had the same problem. On visual inspection the hardpoint looked identical to the others but clearly was off by enough to keep it from working correctly. I tried shaving some of the plastic off the inside of the circle, and was able to kinda get the missile on, but still only half attached. I ended up just switching it with another CF 1A and relegated this one to battroid duty. The other CF unit had no problems with its hardpoints. On my movie CF 1A (this is a third unit), I could not get the super parts booster clip that goes under the backpack to fit properly. I had not had any such issues with any of my other DYRL valks. Looking under the backpack, it appeared that the "forks" that are supposed to slide underneath the backplate simply would not slot into place. They'd simply slide directly under the slot they were supposed to fit into, which prevented me from attaching the back boosters. I had to unscrew the entire backpack in order to get everything slotted in place, and then screw the backpack back on top of it. Then I was able to attach the super parts booster. So those are the recent problems I had with my two CF units. The tolerances were off on just a couple of pieces by enough to cause everything to simply not work properly.

    Is it just the lighting, or did they get rid of the glitter and give us a more transparent canopy tint? Can't wait to get mine!

    Who likes magic brownies? BTW, anyone know what insignias the CF units are supposed to have?

    Honk if you love two seaters (and rainbows)!

    You're going to sell off your valks? Hey! I'd prefer to referred to as the second enabler! Ohhh it looks pretty nice with a tinted canopy.

    Only one more day till the 31A! Then another week or so for shipping.
  13. YOU'RE YELLOW! VF-25F turning all sorts of colors

    I'm gonna try it on that yellowed Hikaru 1J I have since there's enough damage to it that I'm relegating it to the spare parts bin. If I can whiten up just the nose section, then I can transplant it onto my newer, whiter Hikaru so it'll have a rainbow canopy.
