1/72 - Hasegawa - VF-1A Valkyrie


Recommended Posts

Hello,

few pics of my new building, a VF-1A Valkyrie.

The box art :

Building will be quite simple, only few updates thanks to parts taken from this :

No main issues for the building till now :

More work to come on the desk :

Wings will be set in open mode :

Let's have a quick look :

It seems that it looks like a Valkyrie uuuh ? ;)

the paint will be probably a us navy inspired, with a heavy weathered grey camo.

Thanks for reading me.

Nothing to do with it, but do you have a link towards your superb 1/72 Miria's Queadluun Rau building ?

Sadly not, even in spanish... sorry. :(

Damned ! I have found a (good) recast of the Club-M kit... and I have to find a step step wip !

magnifique

I love WIP threads. Looking good, that a photoetched piece or styrine to block the wing opening?

Thanks ! it is photoetched, from Hasegawa set.

See you soon for a small update.

Hello,

as said previously, a small update... the buiding is nearly over. Few things to finished before starting the painting..;

The cockpit is ready to received the ejection seat :

Several Alclad lacquers have been used for exhaust, before clossing half parts of the legs. I have to say that I am a little disapointed by the very bad fitting of those parts !

The head hase been updated, with the change of the cannon, by using a micro tube section :

An overview of the parts wating to be glued together :

Here's a suggestion to you for your next VF-1 build. Remove the mirror parts from the cockpit display decal, and apply a little silver paint to that area. Looks better, and you don't have to worry anymore about getting those tiny bits to line up correctly.

Thanks !

It is my first VF-1 from Hasegawa. Some phasis of the building a not really a pleasure, but things are nearly over, so... For the next time, I will try to simplify few steps, especially for the thruster...

Another step I don't like... the landing gear :

Hello,

many thanks for your messages ! :D

No side numbers on the nose?

It looks totally Navy except the missing side numbers and maybe the tail codes.

Yes, you're right. The idea was to make something inspired from a low-viz us navy tomcat,, but it is clear that is not accurate.

We don't see you often on the Robotech Collection or Macross France Fan Club forums, don't hesitate to come again and post your work B))

hello camarade. I have created a post on robotechcollections.fr.

Best regards,
