  1. I'm not sure if this has been posted yet, but this was one of the best videos I've seen on the topic of plastic yellowing and the remedies: https://youtu.be/8P1OVj0IcqY
  2. Thanks for all the tips and advice everyone, I really appreciate it! Since it's been a long time since I've built model kits (and have a young kid that absorbs a lot of my free time these days), I'll put the VF-25F kit up for sale here, and stick with the DX Chogokins for now.
  3. I accidentally ordered a Bandai VF-25F Messiah Valkyrie Alto Custom Pro-Shop Special kit, when I had meant to order a DX Chogokin (not where I ordered mine, just one of the few examples I can find on the web): http://unicorn-toys.com/macross/3073-1-72-vf-25f-messiah-valkyrie-alto-custom-pro-shop-ver-limited.html I've never built one of these before. According to that, "comes with a snap-fit assembly, matching colored pieces, accessories and fully pictured contruction manual. you don't need paint or glue." Is that true? Looks like the instructions are all in Japanese... how hard are they to follow for an English speaker such as myself? What sort of time commitment are we talking for a total build time? Also, I assume that I'd have to pick a mode, and build to that (i.e. it's not dynamically transformable after the build is complete)? Thanks in advance for any info.
