Just a little tip on improving the stance of the VF-1. Just snip off the top section of the nose gear and shorten the arm.

Brings the nose down a tad and looks much better.  My VF-1J with the little mod

Other than the tomytec gimix line, was there any other brand or product line that offer similiar product? What i mean is pre painted, cheap and either untransformeable or transformable!

About the closest I can think of were the Doyusha die-cast 1/144-scale fighters. I think they made the VF-1, VF-11, YF-19, and YF-21. All really nice little things, if a tad expensive (iirc). Of course, nowadays they're super expensive on the collector's market, so... yeah...

in case anyone wants to see how one looks along a 1/144 scale tomi-T valk.

Just keep in mind ground shipping from these guys took well over a month

Probably means “surface”?

AKA through the sea, on a boat. I'm glad his items came out in one piece. Last time I used Surface mail, it took roughly 6 weeks and the shipping box AND individual item boxes were mangled. The items themselves were spared the worst, but phew, I'm gonna think twice about using it again in the future. Lesson learned.

A GBP-1 in 1/144 scale would be a nice sized kit :D

Specially because it has never been made in that scale.. The closest thing has been Arii's 1:170 model from the 80's and 90's reissues

I think we can all agree that at this point this line is completely DEAD as far as SDF Macross and Delta go. Sad really, they were a bit pricey, but I was really enjoying them.  Glad I got all the fighter modes they offered.

I just wanted all the Delta fighter modes to display together, that would have saved A LOT of money and space over doing it with the Bandai DX's, not that I would because Delta was kinda mehhh....but you could spend the money on the TomyTec kits and still be ok!  And truthfully, if they had continued onto Frontier Valks, I might have sold my DX's and went with those, they were super detailed and would have saved tons of display cabinet space!

I'm just glad I was able to get all 3 forms of the SV-262 with the Tomytec kits, rather than buying (and transforming) 3 different DX Chogokins. Or using the 1/72 scale kits and needing to do all the painting and decaling.
