Finally transformed mine for the first time - been in fighter mode for who knows how long - and aside from the floppy ankles (it was unopened, too, but I wasn't surprised given what I'd read) I'm really surprised at how solidly it all goes together. Except the little winglets behind the cockpit, those fall out if I look at them the wrong way.

Looking forward to attempting some light panel lining and other detail work once I can try to tighten up the ankles. Not sure how I feel about the disassembly so I might just try the "little syringe and tiny drops of floor polish" method instead.

Arcadia’s YF-19 is definitely a pleasure to transform, but those ankles can be a bit of a bummer.

when you start your panel lining, post up a WIP thread so we can see it from start to finish.

Looking forward to your take on customizing.

Did you make sure the sides of the cockpit were protected before flipping the backpack over it?  Arcadia had a design flaw that would scratch the black paint flanking the canopy.

That method works most of the time, I use glue applicator that can delivery controlled amount of the floor polish to a targeted spot. Avoid the trouble of risk of disassemble if you have just this one goal in mind.

How do you protect the canopy sides?

So I was transforming my yf-19 the other day and this little triangle piece fell out from somewhere. I can’t figure out where it’s from. I hoping someone here knows.

Check the arms. Maybe it's the screw cover just popped out.

Do hope Mr,K really improved the ankles on the upcoming reissue...

 

Yeah, I do, too. I really like how the Arcadia looks, but if the ankles aren't changed I'm not really interested. Hoping that I can still get one for not too ridiculous a price if the initial reviews of the toy are favorable...

-Does the standard finish getting released soon come with the ordinance? I'm not seeing it in the official pics here: Hobby Search Link

-It does come with the Fast Packs correct?

-Is the only Fold Booster option the Yamato?

Thanks!

If you check the image flyer in the Hobby Search link, it does include all of it from the original 2014 release.

We have a thread for the reissue and the Premium Finish release here:

 

And yes, Yamato’s Fold Booster is compatible by using the attachment that comes with the Arcadia release.
