Yamato's 1/60 SV-51.

Recommended Posts

I already mentioned about desert scheme in SV-51 CF Thread :)

And check my signiture for TuAF scheme B))

*sigh* that damn pic just did the final blow.. and so i succumb to the SV-51 calling! Roy seems to be a 'lil lonely without his playmate..

that design of Roy's 0S is really nice compared to Shin's and Ivanov's... what's wrong with keeping the top box art like Roy's 0S there.

i picked this up from a stateside vendor and its the first time i didn't get excited over a valk i purchased. i opened it last night, looked at for all of a minute and that was it. i know this sounds silly but after all the drama trying to aquire one, its tainted and soured any kind of love i could've had for it. i'll probably end up selling it after one transformation, thats if i even bother transforming it.

The missiles on my Ivanov are fine. They stay on just as good if not better than the ones on my Nora. :huh:

Has anyone worked out a way to fix Ivanof's loose missile situation?

file down the center posts on the missiles until they're flush with the brackets on either side of them and that should help, it helped on mine.

No good. made it worse.

I'm considering ebaying it, and waiting for a reissue.

Okay, I know I should just rtff, but the SV-thread is huge now. So let me get this straight and confirmed, all the problems that the Ivanov had were fixed with Nora's release?

My nora has an issue. I ordered it over a month ago from a ebay seller based in Hong Kong and I still do not have it. :angry:

Would someone mind summarizing in a few bullet points what were the issues with the SV-51?

Apologies in advance for my laziness in not reading this entire thread.

I think it had really loose wing joints and in some cases two right wing joints.

My gen 1 was a floppy mess. My gen 2 is much, much better.

Thanks for the info folks. Hmm, I prefer the black paint scheme over the Nora ... maybe I'll wait for the reissue.

:ph34r:

Geez, I hope there's no issues with the YF-21.

:rolleyes:

Just let everyone know that my Nora has a very tight "right" main hinge but same cannot be said for the left, it's a tad floppy, but that can be fixed with some nail polish.

What type of nail polish should i use? I have never used it before, i know i need to get clear, but is there a specific type of clear nail polish i should get? Won't harm the plastic?

I doubt it matters. I just grabbed the first bottle of clear I saw ad used that on my first SV-51. The wings are rock solid now.

So will there be a second release ivanov? More a fan of his scheme than nora.

Personally I think the black makes it so much more menacing and evil. It's like the black VF-22 that gamlin uses.

Good guys use white Variable fighters while the bad guys fly black ones. Red is for show-offs who get angry when beaten and are hot headed, (ie milia going psycho because she's rarely gets beaten) and blue is for the calm and collected pilot. (max never seems to get angry or lose his cool)

I think gamlin will eventually become an anti-un supporter because of the black paintscheme.

my sv-51 has loose thigh swivel joints, the wings are a bit loose, the gun thing on the right intake doesn't really stay in place in fighter mode and the missiles don't stay very well (I filled down the nubs and it helped with mine, but other people no luck).

In fighter mode DD's looks more badass than Nora's, but in Battroid they both look equally good.

Argh. I've got a floppy first gen SV-51 Ivanov. Beautiful toy, but like my VF-0S it's so floppy it's really difficult to pose or display. Really bothers me that Yamato does that. Yet I'm always afraid that if I wait for a revised 2nd wave, it will never come and I'll be left with nothing. Since the 21 is such a sure win for Yamato, I'll probably actually hold off on that until they release a fixed version.

I think the black looks sweet also but the Nora stands out a lot more on the shelf. But all of the bright colored mecha are like that. The Nora, Max and Milia look absolutely outstading from across the room. The black ones unfortunately "fade" a little.

Nora's is simply the best Yamato valk to date, all things considered. IMHO.

Yes, I was turned off by the colours, but in the end it did look really beautiful.

I think I prefer the black over the red-pink with yellow stripes scheme.

Not me, Nora's just looks awesome. Ivanov's is boring.

As for attaching the missile pods and missile----try this:

There is a TINY subtle lip on the pod's pylons that go 'around the edge' of the raised circle part of the wing. Try to get the rear half of the pylon in place on the wing, and push it as far forward as possible while you rotate the missile pod up to latch on the front part. Once you get it the first time, all the other times will be a lot easier. Basically--just go for it, but rotate/angle it in position, don't snap it on "straight". Also, remove them in the reverse way---pull down the front.

Personally, I think Nora's "bird-of-prey" markings make this valk really stand out. Isn't it the cloud pattern on the low vis 1 that every one rants about because it's unique? I'm certainly impressed with any color scheme that features more than a solid color paint job.
