  1. Tomytec Gimix 1:144 VF-1

    source For those unfamiliar with Gimix series: http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/search?typ1_c=102&cat=plamo&sold=0&state=0&sortid=0&target=series&searchkey=Gimix&spage=2 The released ones have been mostly 1:144 scale small airplane models. They have pre-painted pieces, are easy to put together and quite expensive, closer to 1:144 airplane trading toys from F-toys than traditional model. I guess this series will be similar to the old F-toys 1:144 Macross toy/model, but really surprised to see more than fighter mode.
  2. Finished building the Tomytec Gimix VF-1A. Took me about 3-hours to complete (1-hour each night). Like all of the prior Gimix aircraft releaes, this is a very impressive kit. Lots of fantastic detail. Most parts simply snap into place. Glue is needed to put on the wheels, missiles, pylons, and forward fuselage antennae. The forward fuselage antennae is microscopically small. Be very careful. They can easily get lost. My advice is to use superglue (cyanoacrylate) and quickly get them attached. First some pics of the VF-1 on the tarmac Now for the comparison to the F-Toys VF-1A. Granted, it's not a fair contest. One costs 500 yen, the other costs 3,000yen.
