  1. 1. Do you like this change in topic

  2. 2. Or do you prefer a part five

Just got a Yamato VF0S Phoenix first release ( box has the flip up cover)and keeping my fingers crossed from Amiami.  What's weird is that it was preowned seemed to be sealed but some decals were gone (301 small decals for the rear fins and some of the Skulls).

From what I read is that the shoulders are ticking time bombs?

Anyway, after searching everywhere here need to clarify something:

1. Yamato ver does not have those flaps on the inner part of his chest to fold out the gap?

2. Yamato doesn't have the Reactive armor that Arcadia has

Am I correct on both these issues?

The answer to your questions is no. :sorry:

And yeah, this release and the Yamato YF-19 were notorious for having exploding shoulders/upper arms.

The Arcadia VF-0 uses metal for those parts.

Decided it was time to put the FAST packs back on M&M. I've had them naked for a few months now in the cabinets. I still love the Yamato rainbow canopy versions of these. Lovingly panel lined and stickerd up they still look amazing ten or so years on. And it helps I got them for about $120 bucks each on discount back in the day. B))

Arcadia PF's wheels need a slight wash to bring out some of the details. As always, great work.

 

Haha thanks. Yeah I don't spend any time on Arcadia landing gear since they're already white and I have everything displayed "in flight" on Yeti stands. I guess I could go back and just do a quick wash... :unknw:

I plan on making a version 2 chess board with each square being 8".  The finished chess board will be a 5' 4" square and will accommodate the HMR Monsters for Rooks.  I'll probably take a picture of the setup on my living room floor or a parking lot or something.

HMR love!

:good:

Love these types of shots. Reminds me of a pre sortie screen where you can pick your valk in a Macross game.

Yamato off white was perfect!! the result is more realistic than the Arcadia versions. 

Guess I'll have to take another pic with just the Yamato versions. ;)

Nice! I actually liked the old HM VF-19. Still have mine with the sound boosters, which looks as good as its bigger 1/60 brother.
