It DOES sound cool! I bet it's like $400 and hopefully detailed thoroughly. - MT

It says 2016 on it but no prototypes? I'll remain skeptical until I see more.

Does anyone know whether Max Factory do injection molding? Or is this likely to be resin etc?

long resin wings will be problematic.

i would think that they would just contract out the production, pretty much like Arcadia and many toy companies

Max factory does injection kits. The new dougram kits the chamber from that show I can't even try to spell are some examples.

Don't forget the Bandai transformable 1/35 VF-1J (if it's not vaporware yet)

Has there been any updates on this beast? I haven't built any MF kits before, and didn't know they made model kits. Only thing I see via Google search is still from Feb.

Wonder if it's big enough for actuators on the flaps and horizontal stabs.

Having seen the detail Airfix crams into their 1/24th scale aircraft, I should think so!

This is just a first-run prototype. Hold your worries.

Looking at the kit weighing 6 kg unbuilt, and the decal sheet being as big as a page of newspaper.

Have they stated a price yet. By the looks of it they may be going large, but simple to keep the cost down kinda like the large scale scale simple gaundam bandai put out a couple years ago.

This will still looking pretty awesome next to my 1/18 collection. I'll probably buy this.

I'll bet when the completed model is ready to go this VF will have every detail imaginable put into it! B))
