Wow, how do they get that chrome on the landing gears?!  Great, more boxes for the basement that I'll never get around too...

Interesting that they built it with a crystal-clear canopy, no tint at all.  

And yeah, I can paint very small things---but not eyebrows on a 1/72 Hayate. 

Looks like hayate has a unibrow!

easy pass for me, these Delta paint/decal schemes are just not up my alley. I'll be happy with my one 1:60 DX Messer.

Is it crazy that I want to buy one of these kits just for the nice pilot fig, recast it and then see if I can stick in in my 1/60 DX'es? 

The DX pilot figs suck

Toothpick or other sharp object + a very little bit of paint.

Considering the dearth of 31A releases at the mo, the first to the release line in any scale would be hot property...

Foil? I think Hasegawa produces metallic foil in different finishes.

Why, was there a prototype VF-27 showed off at one point or another?

Not to my knowledge; just amazed that Hasegawa made sure to produce all variants of the 25 but never did a 27.  They jumped at the SV's from Zero and Delta but to my knowledge there is no "fighter" kit for the 27 anywhere; would love to have at least one in the collection.  Not to fond of buying another Bandai kit and leaving it in fighter only, while I love the actual engineering aspect of those kits, I don't want my fighters showing their tale-tell transformations.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I always got the feeling that the -27 wasn't all that popular. It got overshadowed by the -25 and later on the -29, and didn't really seem to develop an identity, a personality, of its own. Compare that to the Draken and the SV-51, both of which make a serious impression as enemy mecha in their respective shows.

Then again, that could just be my personal biases showing through. I didn't think the -27 was all that impressive. :/

I think it is mostly with Japan nature of not really liking enemy mecha, unless it is really cool. Basing from the DX toy, the vf-27 was in discounted price for years and only it has been recently that it has gained the price above SRP.

 I was always a fan of the 27s,.... I thought it was really wicked looking. Although it didn't help that it was only ever in pink and green

That was the only chink in its armor to me as well; though I don't know what would have shown up on screen in space while still separating themselves from the VF-25's and VF-171's.  In D.D.'s paint scheme it would be absolutely sinister.  The main weapon needs to shrink some though.

To be fair, the DX toy wasn't very good and the DX "renewal" was just that same not very good toy with a new pelvis and more tampo printing.

Oh? What, where, and how might I do the same if I were so inclined?

I'd imagine it consists of 2x delta wings, 2x larger canards, and maybe an alternate weapons pack? Probably less than 20 parts total?

With that -31A coming we now need wing-suspended ordnance !. I already have a surplus of AMM-101 from the six Hase's VF-25 kits, but got bored of them. Some PaCSWS-X or RMS-7 or even the MDE missile would make things more interesting.
