I'm finally getting back into weathering and stickering my Yamato VF-1 cannon fodders. I completed the VF-1J... 4 years ago, and I started on the 1A shortly after. Around 6 months later I had pretty much completed the 1st part of the weathering (darkening), and then... got lazy - probably due to some other distraction - maybe a video game or something. Just did a little bit tonight, which was darkening the option part side covers and intake covers. The next part is dry brushing on some metallic weathering to the darker areas - feet, intake covers and gunpod. Then stickers and a flat coat. I wonder how many months it will be until I find time to do that. Have to wait until the weather is warmer to even use my flat coat Mr Hobby spray. Well, enjoy the WIP photos. The darkening is all done using Gundam Real Touch markers, and a cotton bud/q-tip these top 3 photos were taken in 2015-2016... Left side already weathering, and right side bare. Photos taken tonight. The intake covers are really subtle so no point showing those. I think the effect doesn't show up on my phone camera and during the night with the room lights. It'll be much more pronounced once the dry brushing is done. I had forgetten how therapeutic and relaxing this hobby is.
Warning, heavy post, constantly uploading images... Hi my friends, long time no posting, this time I will share with you 6 months of my life, originally intended for a contest, but didn`t finished it on time. Inspired by a Japanese magazine, I decided to make my own version, it cost me money and above all, so much time and effort, but it worthed, the only bad thig was my poor skills in photograph (cell phone) and the absence of a light box...I added many details, almost 300 round bolts and many styrene rods, and of course I damaged the styrene with many items. The next top secret pictures were taken when one of the last reactive armours were set to a VF-0 valkyrie to go to battle against the anti U.N. forces, whom haven`t stopped their attacks on the last days, giving no time for repairs, we`ve been forced to use it as it came back from it`s last mission...barely a couple of hours ago, we hope to hang on until reinforcements arrive...from...only God knows where...
Hi I'm new here and used to be an aircraft scale modeler. (Any ARCers here? ) Here is my customized Yamato 1/60 VF-1J. I resribed tons of new panel lines and rivets according to Hasegawa injection kit level, and also sand off the combining line and ugly screw holes which makes it so toy-like. (Yes it's a toy but I prefer to think it as a perfectly transformable VF model.) I also added some low-viz US NAVY stencil decals and the famous Skull leader logo decal on it. I did order one Yamato 1/60 VF-1 assemble model kit which was announced to be released in October, but after I customize this one I just canceled my preorder of the kit. I found the paints could never stick hard on the kit surface because the plastic is all made by ABS, not the normal injection kit ones. So I gave up to paint it thouroughly but just some place that I can still play with it after painting without chopping off the paints. Hope you like it! Cheers, Yufei Fighter Mode
