I do have vf-1 also as believe they only did these two on the special edition but that one seems to be a metallic blue??

Its hard to compare colors on a computer screen but the metallic blue in the color chart I posted looks similar to their mica blue. The metallic also comes in the paint jars too. You can always test the colors on a scrap model or plastic to get a feel.

The YF-19 and VF-1S models are readily available, its only the 25th anniversary decal that is somewhat harder to come by. None of the Hasegawa models have become collectors items though a few Macross Zero models were selling for higher prices a couple of years ago. If you're not satisfied with the paint before the decaling stage you could either strip the paint or obtain another YF-19 model to use the decals on.

I did pick up the metallic blue just the other day and is bit to light, but Vallejo now do a metallic medium that you can add to most paints to get the metallic look so may try that route if have to ,,, a pain but all part of the fun I spose lol.... I did pick up a nice dark metallic purple so may use that instead as don't have to be exact. but not sure if to do it wheels down or inflight flying straight up????

thanks for the help model-junkie.
