YF-25 Prophecy with customized Tornado Pack

Recommended Posts

I could not find anything about this done before, so I’d like show my repaint of VF-25s Tornado Pack to fit on the YF-25 Prophecy. The YF-25 is still my favorite Valkyrie due to it’s colors and design (Maybe this will change after the release of the VF-31A Kairos though ;)). When the Tornado Packs for the renewal versions of the VF-25 came out, I always tried to get a hand on Michel’s blue colored pack, but I couldn’t grab one at a reasonable price. But then I made a good deal on ebay and got a second Alto version and decided to make a repaint to fit an the YF-25. The outcome you can see below. 

I’m glad I went for this „Tornado“-solution for my YF-25, as in my opinion Michel’s Tornado Pack is much too colorful for the YF-25 and its shade of blue doesn’t match the blue color behind the cockpit of the YF-25.

Looks great! I wanted to do this scheme too and have a spare Alto tornado sitting on the side just for this. What brans of paint did you use and if it was custom, mixed what was the ratios?

Impressive color matching.  Can we see it in the two other modes too?

The YF-25 is also my personal favorite version of the 25, just ahead of the 25A.  Everyone should own one IMO.

Very nice colors. Did you strip everything and start from bare plastic? If so, where did you get the decals for all the markings?

Or did you mask off areas and "just" paint over the original paint scheme? Either way, that's a really pretty design.

Looks like it was made for it.

That was my thought too when I attached the parts after rework the first time B))

@wmkjr: I used Tamyia paints. Base was X-6 glossy orange with X-21 flat base to get a semi-gloss finish. Unfortunately I don't have any information on the ratios as I mixed it just by trial and error. Had to start over three times. I used also a little amount of yellow and red brown as far as I remember. 

@Mommar: Left it in fighter mode all the time, but good idea, I'll gonna make some pics.

I just painted over by hand. I thinned the custom orange a little bit, gladly it had still enough opacity. I applied two layers by brush. No masks, just a calm hand ^_^

The painted areas are all orange surfaces and the black yellow outer fins. the rest I just left as it came out of the box.

I still think about changing the markings from SMS to NUNS markings. That would make it look even more authentic. But I can only find those U.N.Spacy markings.

Does anyone know where to get water slide decals for NUNS-markings?

Wow, looks great in all modes but gerwalk is definitely my favorite.  Nice work with the brush, the finish looks smooth.  The sheen matches too.

The YF-25 is the only Valk I have three of. Now that I see the other modes, I feel the urge to get two other sets of Tornado parts although I have no ambition to do the same paint job once more :blink:;)

Tornado pack is the best pack, let's be honest.

This color scheme is really nice! The tornado pack is my favorite and on the YF-25, it gives it a "Paladin" vibe.

Tfkingdom.com would make them.
