My friends,

Here is a new finished kit from Hasegawa, also with scratch detailed cockpit (added buttons and the modified canopy that can be displayed opened, closed or without it. I already posted my Max VF-1A gerwalk wich you can see in this forum.

No more words, let`s see the picutres, please let me know what you think.

I really hope you like it.

Well, it's awesome. Why did you decide to paint the forward-facing thruster on the side of the intake yellow on the Max bird, and red on the Hikaru bird?

Did you use the decals for the verniers, or paint them?

Thanks!


Agreed about the weathering, the exhaust from the backpack boosters in particular. I also really like the green tone you used on the gunpod.

Me too about the rifle, as with Max's!

Love this build. Only thing I find about the Hasegawa 1/72 kit is some of the proportions of the main legs are too narrow (in height) and the tail/backpack looks thick from headon although this does look more like the line art in being thicker in cross section.

Anyway great build and cool weathering. Makes me want to build all of my Hasegawa 1/72 kits now.

Thank you so much to all for your kind comments.

I painted the forward-facing thruster yellow in this blue bird because red color doesn't stand out that much over the blue, besides I have seen some Max J. battroid builds with Orange-yellow on this thruster and I like how it looks.

And the verniers were painted, I try to avoid decals on verniers whenever I can.
