1/72 VF-1 VALKYRIE booster photos

Recommended Posts

Hi guys.

Just thought I'd start a thread exclusively devoted to promote the VF-1 Booster project. Essentially, this is the grand-prize buildup in its finished form, and hopefully, this will give a good idea of what can be done with the kit.

Enjoy.

Close-up of the port-side fuselage and vents. Rust detail was added with chalk pastel in order to give the booster a different weathered look from the fighter, since I immagined that both units would have been used and maintained differently.

John, That looks awesome! :o

I can't wait to see it on a shelf in my house. ;) Somewhere safe so that the kiddies can't get to it.

I hope the pilot arrives soon. <_< If it doesn't arrive by this weekend, PM me and I can send another. I'll send it with some tracking and confirmation this time. :rolleyes:

Smartass. :p

Still.... do the hasegawa kit legs fit with or without modification?

The only "modification" needed to the Valkyrie kit legs are the deletion of 2 parts, but this is clearly outlined in the instructions. You can always just clean out the foothole with a dremel and file if you insist on keeping all the parts. However, the castings that Jesse is doing seems to have alleviated the issue of the foothole, so for those castings you may not have to modify anything.

Wow, that's amazing.

Here's where I wish I had skills in models. o_O

I should get a couple of cheap ones from Wal-Mart to practice up...Macross models seem like a must to me. =X

Nice, very nice. . .

Another reason why I wish you were working for Yamato, Bandai or Takara. . .

Just one thing it needs GUNS (j/k :D)
