That's sharp! Nice work! I wish Hasegawa would sell the TV pilot separately, maybe a set of 6 or something.
And in 1/48, too.
Whats the difference?
The TV flight suit is this much thinner one:
The DYRL movie flight suit (which is included in the Hasegawa 1/72 weapons set) is the bulkier one with the big shoulder pads that looks more like a space suit:
The Master Files VF-1 books explains it as if the TV version is an early suit and the movie version was designed later for better survivability in space. It also shows the suit that Hikaru wore in the VF-4 clip in Flashback and describes it as a third version.
The Hasegawa 1/48 VF-1A/J kit includes the TV cockpit and pilot, while the 1/48 VF-1A/S included the movie cockpit and pilot. I like the idea that both could exist to represent different stages in development of the VF-1. I want to model several 1/72 VF-1s to represent the time period right as the war started, so I want TV cockpits and pilots, but then I'll do some later examples (e.g. with FAST packs) using the movie cockpit and pilot.
Edit: The 1/72 Gerwalk kit introduced the TV pilot, as seen in this model.
I'd just like a GERWALK & Battroid in 1/48!
