Thanks for the comments.

Kinda difficult to photograph it now that the tail fins are on. There's also not much to see.

Amazing paint job. I'm horrible at that stuff. What techniques did you use to paint it?

Very clean. Great work! I've cracked open my box, but not done any assembly as yet... how did it go together for you? What do you think about the kit?

Thanks you. The kits is painted with airbrush, and the detailing are done with hand brushing. It is a fairly straightforward out-of-the-box build. The hardest part is actually masking off all the individual areas for color separation.

A perfect build! very nicely done, thanks for sharing.

Thank you!

Outstanding!!

Thanks!

Out of all the Hasegawa Macross kits I've built (YF-19, YF-21, SV-51), this is the easiest one to build. Simple construction, parts fitting are very good, and many parts can be painted before assembly. But the plastic used is a softer plastic when compared to previous releases so there is actually problems of parts slightly warping and difficulty in sanding. Also, the connection of the lower legs and the arms to the fuselage is a bid odd. This can easily misalign the parts if not enough attention is given.

No noise filter. Just didn't have enough light when I shot the photos. that's why they came out a bit grainy.

Great work and great pictures!! But the next time, don't use a so high ISO value, to avoid grains in the pictures.

Congratulations!

I use Tamiya masking tape. Nothing special, just a lot of patience and trimming.

Great work. I have that kit in my closet and your build definitely makes me want to move it up in ranking for what to build next.

What do you do to get the great panel lines?

I used a combination of panel wash and going over the lines again with a .005 sakura ink pen.

Very sweet work on those kits! The VF-11 is my favorite mecha from Macross Plus. Yours has the cleanest, most crystal clear canopy I've ever seen on a model! Is that just from a nice dip in future or do you have a special technique?

I use the canopy directly out of the box. Just make sure you clean it with water and soap before putting it on the jet.
