Smoke-point for a Valkyrie!

Recommended Posts

So, I setup my 1/48 VF-1J box up on my dining room table to swap out some hands.   I began to smell something funny, and then noticed something horrible had happened...

I HAD PUT THE BOX OVER A CANDLE.  IT DID NOT END WELL FOR THE BOX.

The Valk is fine though.

Notice how the hole is almost perfectly round!

A candle flame can hit temperatures of over 2000 degrees Fahrenheit, while the burn temperate for cardboard is around 450.  You are lucky that a severe fire did not start.

(Though I am not a mother yet.... just imagine me saying this next part in a concerned motherly voice)

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE be more careful next time.... errr.. I mean, don't let there be a next time.

Ooh!  I was thinking the hole looked like a "Reflex Blast" (excuse my Robotech, but I read those damn novels as a kid and the word is stuck in my head)

I shall sell this on Ebay at a giant premium!

Custom edition!  Glad everything turned out alright.  Some soot on the valk would've made for some nice battle damage :p

Match-heads make great laser-impacts... but this does seem a little extreme:D

 

good to hear everything ended up ok.

Because I’m dumb I spent 10 mins trying to decipher the third and forth word. Still nothing lol. Glad everything is ok. Looks like the Zentradi tried to blow it up
