:D

Congrats! :good: 

 

However don't you dare opening it. Keep it pristine. Or else you're just going to find 1.5kg of shrink-wrapped umbrellas. :rolleyes:

 

 

Just kidding. Hahaha! :lol:

Thanks guys.  I'm thinking of getting a strike pack for it.   I'm assuming it has the necessary connection points like the other 1/60 VF-1's.

Congrats on getting one, it's an awesome looking Valk and one probably never to be re-issued! 

On a side note for you VF-1A Cavalier owners, the light grey on the lower legs... would you say that is a Light Bluish-grey or more a light Cool-grey color similar to the 1/48 Low Vis Navy? Hard to tell as I do not own one... yet.

Definitely a light blue grey

I actually thought of painting them black with some small red accents to match the Valk

Thanks @Special Sauce, much appreciate that. I have an old Yamato 1/48 that is getting the Cavaliers treatment and I wanted to get that color correct. B))

Here is the color pallet that I used on mine, originally from Tekering

Stick to Japanese modeling materials.  Having grown up in Canada with Testers, Humbrol and the like, I can tell you that Mr. Color and Tamiya brand paints are much higher quality (and considerably easier to use) than what's readily available in your neck of the woods...

Unless you know your way around an airbrush, spray cans and masking tape is the way to go.  :good:

This is what I managed to achieve this week, without the aid of an airbrush:

Thank you @Special Sauce for those pics, I'm going to keep those for reference with my build! B))

Thank you @levzloi for that shopping list of paints. I found them online last night and ordered away! :D

To everyone else on your newest purchases, congrats to you as well!

This dude just landed!

Always wanted an Beast Wars Megatron. Almost bite the bullet with the MP but seeing a lot of complaints about quality issues in relation with the price changed my mind

I'm quite happy with this one

After a long year and over a month wait, aren't you glad that you got the beast finally in hand @Sanity is Optional?  :D

Yeah, Jungle wouldn't ship FedEx/DHL/UPS and it took until Feb of this year before they gave in and let it ship Surface.

Now I need to replace the cracked shoulder hinges with the shapeways replacements.

Weird, Jungle shipped DHL for me no problem.

With the inclusion of Dog Fight and Space Fold, I’ve now got all the Tsukuda Macross and Mospeada games. It took some patience with these last two but finally got them for decent prices on Yahoo JP.

Now to rearrange some of my display stuff to get these last two in.

@vladykins Love the artwork on those.  Vintage toys have some of the most amazing art on the packaging.
