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.
Anyone anticipating the 1/144 delta line? What are your expectations from tomytec, or delta valks in this scale or how far would you invest in this scale..... 1. It didnt occur to me before but looking at the mock-ups of the VF31, the turrent seems to be molded seperately in fighter mode. Whether that means the back turret can detach or not is debatable i guess..(I thk not cos they dont do those things in this scale..or do they?) 2. Looking at battroid lineart, the overhead turrets looks quite detailed. Whether or not they can reproduce it remains to be seen... 3. A SV draken at this scale?
