Arcadia YF-19 coming in 2014

Recommended Posts

Looks great Valhary. :good: ;)

I know it's a long shot but does this custom going to lead on becoming your base figure for VF-19Active Nothung? :rolleyes:

Finally transformed mine for the first time - been in fighter mode for who knows how long - and aside from the floppy ankles (it was unopened, too, but I wasn't surprised given what I'd read) I'm really surprised at how solidly it all goes together. Except the little winglets behind the cockpit, those fall out if I look at them the wrong way.

Looking forward to attempting some light panel lining and other detail work once I can try to tighten up the ankles. Not sure how I feel about the disassembly so I might just try the "little syringe and tiny drops of floor polish" method instead.

Arcadia’s YF-19 is definitely a pleasure to transform, but those ankles can be a bit of a bummer.

when you start your panel lining, post up a WIP thread so we can see it from start to finish.

Looking forward to your take on customizing.

Did you make sure the sides of the cockpit were protected before flipping the backpack over it?  Arcadia had a design flaw that would scratch the black paint flanking the canopy.

That method works most of the time, I use glue applicator that can delivery controlled amount of the floor polish to a targeted spot. Avoid the trouble of risk of disassemble if you have just this one goal in mind.

How do you protect the canopy sides?
