Hasegawa 1:4000 SDF-1 (DYRL)

Recommended Posts

Looks better than show pics... The tapering on the body looks better with angles not as a straight line.

I think it looks fantastic! Hopefully the final product will have a more detailed bridge, but as it is a model nothing a little customizing won't cure.

It looks fine to me, with plenty of fine surface detail and good proportions; but then, I'm not as fussy a model builder as some. Also, the fact that this will be a widely available Styrene kit, the production of a Hasegawa or 3rd party photo-etch frets to super-detail the hell out of it is almost a given, too; so those who find themselves underwhelmed will likely get their wish for more detail.

Now Hasegawa, get on producing a TV version SDF-1 as well... and a Battle 7 and Frontier, and some of the other ships from all the shows -- take a page from Bandai's line of 2199 1/1000 kits.

So is it cruiser mode only? Looks great either way.

I'll bet someone out there will use this model as an upgrade to their Yellow Submarine kit OR customize this Cruiser mode kit into the Attack mode.

Don't think it's in the same scale as the YS kit. (Is it?)

given the nature of the layout of the ship, I agree that it would likely be very easy to modify into Storm attacker mode.

(Edit: I guess it IS the same scale! )

I was already sold, but those new crisp clear pictures look great. Detail looks very good!

Wow, that's pretty impressive!

But I'd be much more excited if Hasegawa made a TV version of the SDF-1.

And what's with making all the DYRL stuff canon? It only took Hasegawa 10+ years to release a TV-version pilot with their new 1/72 Gerwalk kits, while almost all the rest of their stuff is based on DYRL designs and color schemes.

Very nice. Surprisingly simple. It'll fit in naturally with my vintage Imai & Arii SDFM plamos. Really looking forward to it!

Looks nice. Wrong scale for me. Besides, I will always prefer the TV version.

Can't wait to see the box art, though!

1999.co.jp has the box art... which I'm actually less than impressed with. Ah well, it won't stop me from getting the kit. It's retailing for much cheaper than I expected!

That's cool, where do the small Valkyries go on the model? That monster would be huge if it was to scale, look at it compared to the bridge?!!

Well, lenght of the Monster is 41 meters, or 4100 cms, so 4100/4000= 1 cm. We only need to wait until have the kit in our hands.

Anyway, how the hell we'll paint those valks???

Per the description from HobbySearch...

"- Is the in-from-, as a bonus element, comes with a monster of the same scale × 2 and the VF-1 Valkyrie (Normal × 8 / Super × 8 fighter form)."

I'm not into kits, but I could use those miniatures for my 1/3000 Yamato SDF-1! :) .....around 2 bucks per mini before shipping isn't too bad....

Wow, 41m is 134ft - that's huge, it didn't seem that big in the anime. However, if that's the case, then the bridge is way too small - isn't there supposed to be at least 5 levels/floors within that clear part of the bridge superstructure?

I'm loving the 'Movie Edition' designation and what that at least suggests in terms of the chance of a 'TV Version' at some point. The question is, do I get this to add to the outrageous stack of models that may never get built, or wait for a TV version that may never come. Hmmm...

But remember Cheng, that 41 meters includes the canons, so the body would be around 25-30 meters.

And by the way, the valks should be 3.5 mm!!!

I'm up for one of these... and would definitely love to see that box art on a third sortie book.

Adding the Monsters and Valks is a totally cool touch. It's usually one or the other.

OK, TV version with opening Daedalus, micro mechs and Valks for the Prometheus! That would be the icing on the cake. - MT

I had never thought of that. A 1/72 scale bridge would be awesome, I would build that!

Believe it or not, the monster seems it's right scale. I measured it when I made mine to 1/3000

hwr-00-kmII cockpit is huge ans it's tiny top portion of monster.
