The Club M release also came with the Super Packs, so that's why I used the boosters on this one.

As usual, more to be seen here.

Great job on this VF-11 ! :)

How was the building ? no trick or something to pay attention at ? (I have the VE-11 from Hasegawa on my desk...)

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you! No, no specific problems at all. Main build went together very fast.

It looks great!! Good job!! I have a Club-M VF-11 too, but it's a special edition without any pack or option parts. :(

I might have an extra pair of packs, as I constructed one years ago without any.... would you like them?

Oh, yeah, btw AWESOME BUILD JEFUEMON!

(Can't resist using the extra caps because your build is THAT awesome!)

Will you display it at some exhibits, Jefuemon?

IIRC, a well-known modelers' event is held at Sapporo Factory every year.

If I ever get a chance, I'd like to publicly display a few of my kits, yes.

Wonderful build, Jefuemon. Impressive work on you flickr pages, too.

Looks like you dressed up the ejector seat to the VF-11?

I just picked up a VF-11B kit from HLJ that was on sale for $12.00 (us). It's the Macross: The Ride version so I'll need to scounge up some UN Spacy 'kite' emblems to make is a service VF.

Nope, didn't do anything different. Thanks for thinking I did something special, though!

Loving this valkyrie.

Great work! The top of the booster paintwork looks slightly out of line, but I'm guessing that's due to the old resin moulds.

Anyway, as usual, thanks for posting your pics. Always good to see.

Saw this on the front page, looks amazing, nice job Jefuemon!

Now I want to try and track down a (toy) VF-11B. :D

-b.

Yeah this is making me want to buy a VF-11B too!

Nice work Jefuemon! Very clean build with very good detail.

After watching a bit of Macross 7, I see VF-11 design was meant to be the cannon fodder that the tan colored VF-1A's were in the original Macross. Glad it got it's due as a valk design.

I read somewhere (maybe here) it was designed because using the VF-19 as the 'common' valk was rejected because it looked too much like a 'hero' mount. Sort of the way the VF-17 design was used in the Macross Frontier series - last year's hero model is this year's cannon fodder - but I still want a 1/72 VF-171 model kti!
