Latest completed build- VF-1S Valkyrie, Max Type


Recommended Posts

Throw another one on the shelves! Just finished up my 1/48 scale DYRL version of the VF-1S (from Hasegawa), done up as Max's ride. Very straightforward build, nothing surprising.

I realized that with all the Valkyries/variable fighters I've built, I've never had one displayed in full-speed mode. Decided to remedy that defect with this kit.

Very nicely done. Do the wings get fixed into position on these kits then, or is it just a display preference you're talking about?

The wings can be swept into any position, I've just always had my other kits displays with full deployment.

Also, I have a favor to ask of anyone who has a Facebook account. Can you please post this as a response to this?

"Michael Parrott Nice job. But max was not AC #001." found here. Thanks!

Yes, I'm probably one of the 10 people still in the world with no plan to be on FB.

Looks fantastic. I like the third-last shot. I haven't built any of the 1/48 Hasegawa valks. Are they easier/harder to put together compared to the 1/72 ones?

About the same, difficulty wise, but the detail is a lot better. They include the wing parts to block out the interior when fully extended, all the verniers are actually recessed, not decaled, and they fixed the 1/72's Droopy Leg Syndrome. So far, my only regret about the 1/48 line is the lack of weapon kits.

We got you on twitter though... :p

Little OT here, but I actually started up Twitter 'cause I found it was a lot easier to talk with my favorite band that way. They're actually some of my first followers, too!

Awesome build! I love in flight for these 1/48's, but it's a pain to close those doors.....

It's a bit of a pain, but it's even tougher on the 1/72 line.

Jefuemon was asking for that video to be put on facebook to reply to that person's comment on facebook. He knows that Max was #001 in that instance..

Regardless, amazing build. Had a look at your flickr too. Just wow.
