So much drama on here about damaged boxes! Here’s an offer for anyone here. You can have this box for free, just pay actual shipping :D perfect if you need to replace your torn one! I am being serious, so PM me if you want it.

IF they make a two seater, then I'm going to want a VF-1D and possibly the Ostrich as I haven't owned a two seater since Yamato's original 1/60 version. I never did get their 1/60 V2...but if they don't, I can stop after Hikaru's TV VF-1S. 

yeah, yamato never made a 1/48 d or ostrich.  first ever?  man, that would be so rad!

Here's my take on DX Alaska Base in PS :p:

That green is FANTASTIC. I have never wanted a Alaska Base variant before.......now.

Should the knees be green?

At least per the anime....

Yamato thought otherwise....

Either way looks pretty good. I like how the placard next to the Yamato says “The road to complete ?” As if asking “Have we made every possible variant NOW?!?” Haha

That picture is making me want one, too. And a TV Hayao.

I see a bunch of PMs about decals. The level of interest is higher than I expected. I'm going to try to help everyone who has contacted me so far. There might be a delay in me responding to messages, though. I already know that my work day tomorrow is going to be very long, so I might not be able to get back to everyone until Saturday morning. If you're interested and haven't reached out yet, please send a PM soon.

Oh dang, I’m going to end up ordering half a dozen CF. I love the brownies. 

Same, it's probably my favorite design.  I hope Bandai makes them eventually!

I gave the Alaska Base a go years back with an $80 dollar-ish shelf warmer TV Kaki Yamato 1:60v2. It was a quick job, I've never tried transforming it, It would wreck the paint, but whatever, looks great in robot mode! Sorry for the OT pics, but I wanted to play.

Here’s a question, has anyone found a way to safely remove the shoulders? That would be key to make a solid Alaska Base 1A with no blue peeking out.

About a million years ago someone posted a pic of a DX Max (I think it was a Max) posed like the SOCOM guys shoot. They had the gun pod collapsed so it could be pulled in tighter and I think the pic was taken outside. I just went through an eye bleeding number of pages here and in the  1/48+fp's, 1/60+fp's, 1/72, 1/2k, 1/3k,1/100 and now 1/144 thread looking for it. I can't find it. I'm hoping someone knows where it is (maybe a different thread) or the person who posted it up can post it again. It looked really great and i'm trying to replicate it....with little luck. Thanks!

This is the shooting stance but the pic was from a different angle.

I've never heard of the CF design. Which is that?

It's just fandom slang for the mass-production Valkyrie units, the brown-and-ivory color scheme most VF-1As have in the animation.  It stands for "cannon fodder."  :p

ok, it's gotta be this one haha, that scratched an itch to search for something.  Awesome shots by @peter

 

You linked the same one twice.:p

Those aren't it. I may have a Mandela Effect thing going on there but I swear it was Max, the gun pod was collapsed and it was outside????

Thanks for the help!

The second one is different from the first one, and it is out door.
