Yamato 1/60 V2 VF-1J head disasembly

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to dissemble a VF-1J head for painting, and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with that.  Can it be done without destroying the head, or should I resign myself to painting it assembled and living with it more or less fixed pose?  I have the unassembled instructions, and it looks like it's pretty well glued together with no real clear seams to attack.

its heavily glued together. i dont recomend use force to break the glue. maybe some googone in the seams? i try some time ago with a vf-1s with no luck. but maybe you can find the manual to a seemble the "no paint" version to see where the parts get together.

Yeah, I have the unassembled instructions courtesy of anymoon, but like you say it's pretty well glued together.  maybe a brief soak in googone?

I would consider trying to mask off parts of it and after main painting, using a small brush to get into the areas spray can't get to easily. It sounds like trying to disassemble the head would be a major pain and risky at best.
