  1. Excellent! Have you considered some plain black “UN SPACY” markings so that VF-1J & cannon fodder schemes can be modelled? Very interested.
  2. Sorry man - you can blame yourself though. I hadn’t even considered hacking into the kit until I saw what you were doing. Lovely feet detail you have going on there!
  3. More progress. Lots left to do.
  4. Lovely work, @Nyankodevice!
  5. I think you’re right. Almost done on my rebuilt one.
  6. Can you show how your new foot mount fits inside the legs, @tekering?
  7. Built a new backpack, 10% size reduction. Looks better (IMO): https://i.imgur.com/PAflGgx.jpg
  8. Thanks @tekering - I agree, it isn’t right. Can you measure the length you used? No FAST packs for me, which simplifies matters greatly!
  9. Backpack therapy. Kit: More progress on the anime backpack. Thoughts?
  10. Thanks. Ideally, I’m after out of the bottle. Model company recommendations are good, but even “I’ve used this...”
  11. Not sure whether to post here or the newbie/short questions: I’m after the best colour matches, by paint brand, for the brownie VF-1A from SDFM. Bonus points for colours for the feet. Thanks!
  12. Cribbed some build tips from @tekering and cut off the front of the backpack to deal with the ejector pin marks. Also temporarily removed the ECM bulges and increased the taper by making the end 4mm narrower: It is minor, but it is progress.
  13. Really liking this! Do you hand paint the high-lights?
  14. Mocked up the backpack using Hasegawa’s 1/72 proportions (very roughly). I need to work on the taper for the top surface. Compared to this:
  15. Okay. 21.1mm wide - main screen bezel. https://i.imgur.com/iFB2g7D.jpg 14.5mm high - main screen bezel. https://i.imgur.com/7P4gPKx.jpg 34.3mm wide - instrument panel, including quarter consoles. https://i.imgur.com/2gFJ2el.jpg 5mm wide - centre console. https://i.imgur.com/Boj7cG9.jpg 12mm wide - quarter consoles. That ought to get you started.
  16. I’ll measure it up when I get home.
  17. Looking good. Do you think you could make the instrument panel the same interface/outline as the kit one, just with the TV layout?
  18. Just panel lines to check their consistency.
  19. Would you consider a TV-style cockpit?
  20. Could you extend the fairing down to cover the gap?
  21. Made a start on Plamax 1/20 VF-1: https://i.imgur.com/LNhLSw9.jpg
