Max Factory 1/20(!) VF-1S/A Hikaru

Recommended Posts

Well, wondering about the nose and canopy myself. That said, a session pulling some heated plastic over a wooden mold should handle the canopy issue...

(...then it sets in: start making hands for it, split the main body along the transform line panel for the shoulders, articulate the head....

..and next thing ya know, I'm ready to throw it across the room again! :p )

Interesting parts map. Could be the only scale kit I buy this year.

I went to Wonder Fest today. So sorry, but I couldn't see the latest info of the 1/20 Valk; so many models to see in the garage kit area.

BTW, I found interesting models at the KAKIMOTO's booth (6-09-03).

The 1/20 skull squadron members in DYRL.

I wonder if there is someone who buy 4 Valks for them.

The nose cross section of the kit looks strange. Like they needed a narrow base for the canopy to be the bubble shape more pronounced, so the sidewalls are at a strange angle that continues into the nose.

Thanks for posting the pics!  I hate the 3D printed prototypes, there is so much that can change before the production model comes out.  But it looks better than the last bland shapes we saw. - MT

Still unsure about the nose/canopy. The rest looks good.

I agree.  The nose and canopy just look weird.

That profile confirms that it could work with a nose job.

The VF-1A type head sits too far in on the prototype

Hm, maybe it's a forced perspective model...:p

Or, maybe it's a forced scale model design too. 8P

That thing is HUGE!  The gunpod looks like it could fire BB's!  The shnoz does look too long!  Hopefully it's the camera.  It does look off.  I had an old camera that would warp anything like that.  My 1/100 Monster barrels looked like they were sagging in photos:D - MT

I keep thinking it may look shorter when it gets some color and especially with the black stipe around the area in front of the cockpit.

They'll have to sort out those head lasers on the 1S head, they looked really squished together.

Those are some truly thick sprues if accurate. Would make a nice supply of rod. Did they say yet if this will be PS or ABS? The gigantic 1/12 Panzers that Max Factory released were ABS.
