  1. I had already given up on this, but I just noticed one of my favorite European stores has it listed as well by now. https://hobbyfrontline.com/product/dx-chogokin-vf-25-messiah-valkyrie-worldwide-anniv/ So I’m happy I didn’t get through on any of the local Japanese sites ‘cause now I won’t have to pay tax and custom fees and shipping costs are just 15 € 😃.
  2. @MechTech it’s getting better and better with every post. This will be a pretty cool diorama.
  3. Searched for the re-release of Tamiyas‘ Grasshopper and found this thing! Now I wish for lots of snow at Christmas! 😃
  4. @Urashiman scratch building would be good to hone your skills. As for me this would be no option and I would scrap this kit as it is not that much expensive anyway. @joscasle Another gorgeous looking weathered machine! Wished I had the skills to do so.
  5. I don’t see any defect, only a damn good looking sv51 in fighter mode!
  6. That's an awesome idea! And you printed and painted almost every main female character of the whole Macross universe. And they are looking really good, especially at that size. I Like it, definitely!
  7. Wow, lightening up did really do a thing. And that burnt metal looks really cool. Great looking F15!
  8. Thank you guys, too! I just checked on my oldest DX toy, that's Lucas' RVF-25 and it shows slight yellowing, too. Now I think it'll look cool with its radar dish painted in grey colors. Especially in combination with its three drones. Could be a nice project during xmas holidays 😁
  9. Thank you both! I'm still a fan of the original colors of the YF-25 but as well of this much more military looking style of the Kairos. And I appreciate the matte finish of the VF-31 DX toys. With panel lining and decals the YF-25 now has the look of a premium finish version of a Macross F DX toy. I would like to do that to my other Macross F Valks, too, but unfortunately a complete painting has a negative impact on transformation. Perhaps if I can grab an already yellowed toy at a favorable price I'd do another re-painting again. Somehow I find a liking in it.
  10. I did it again - though I wrote somewhere back in this thread I would not repaint a DX ever again. But I couldn’t stand the look of my poor yellowed YF-25 and felt I had to do something about it. Use of peroxide was no option. Good thing I had already knowledge concerning disassembly and scratch sensitive parts. The color scheme was an easy choice: VF-31A Kairos. It took me a couple of weeks as I did not have much free time for modeling but finally it’s done: YF-25 Xaos Gamma Flight 01 Before repaint (in reality the white parts are much more yellowed than in the picture and on the lower side, too) And after: VF-31A and YF25 in comparison:
  11. Oh yes, if MegaHouse would release the spider tank with Batou in matching size I would be all-in!
  12. As I'm currently watching "Ghost in the Shell - Stand Alone Complex" I had to get me a Tachikoma. Got this little guy from Mandarake for a good price (took the Major as bonus 😉)
  13. Great pick! My favorite Dropship of all times. Managed to get 2 of those and 3 APCs via eBay years ago at reasonable prices as compared to where those went up by now. It‘s really high quality and looks so good on display.
  14. This was my first real RC car as a kid! I loved it and used it up until it was completely broken and even repairs did not help any more 😪 (Still have a Madcap though)
  15. Although it has been said several times before but this color does really a lot for it. Really nice work!
