VF-1S head unit

Recommended Posts

Thanks mickyg, it's a big step for me as I haven't done any modelling for about 20 years.

I have a few model kits still in boxes that need to be built up so my painting skills are going to get a work out.

I think you already won the title of coolest dad on earth from your kids :)

Ha, who says they can play with it :D.. Well at least I can just print another when it get broken.. Or maybe I should do the set and we can have one each. 1J and 1A ..

That's some impressive work! The J head would be interesting - you'd be looking through a pretty narrow view from inside it. I have a feeling the A head wouldn't be wide enough for you to fit your head inside at that scale. Might have to make that one just for the kids!

Thanks, since I thought about the other 2 heads I've been looking for good detailed pictures of the 1J and 1A heads.... can't find anything good enough to model off, i'll keep looking.

I don't think either the J or A will fit my head at this scale, just for the kids I reckon... that's if I do them.

I'm going to make a wall mount so I can mount it like a trophy :)

I'll get the parts laser cut in 5mm Aluminium and weld it together and paint.

Should look pretty cool hanging on the wall.

The plate with holes in it bothers me a bit, I might change it to make it more Macross styled... Ideas anyone?

For the holes - a kawamori-vernier at a 45 degree angle should do the trick - or study some of the concept art available online for the carrier arm or hangar bays for inspiration.

Good idea 99.

An upside down version of this will work nicely,

Good job Rodavan

If you are willing for me to have a look at the model I'd be keen :)
