BANDAI DX YF-19!!

Good Grief!!

If the DX YF-21 does get made, you bet that the "New Edwards" tampos will be plastered on the right wing like an eyesore. :bad: 

Edit: It's going to be on both wings actually like the YF-19.

C'mon now. I'm pretty sure you'll going to stay up late just to score a preorder of a DX YF-21. 8)

:lol:

Yep, that's definitely the weakness of the Yamatos... not enough tampos. I hate their decals, too, so my poor valkyries have to live with not enough markings.

It looks like overkill at first sight, however you do get used to it after giving it some time.

OR

If you don't like it, you can copy @tekering's idea and strip off the tampos.

The good part about the YF-21 there is that there shouldn't be any other markings.  The only issue with the YF-19 is really that the lettering is over the black wing striping, so you have to repaint the black.  The YF-21's should be on plain blue plastic, so you can just scrape the unwanted billboard logos off, without harming the rest of the markings.

If I remember correctly, there is no repainting of the black. The white is applied on top of the black striping. Need to find the link to @tekering's post. 

Edit: my memory failed me. I found the link, and I was wrong. :(

Yeah, unfortunately they just made a ton of work for people who don't like the markings.  I'm kinda tempted to remove the letters on just the left wing, since they're over black.

The whole thing would have been a lot more tolerable if they'd just picked a consistent font, location, and angle for all the markings.. but no.. they had to slap two entirely different sizes of lettering on, and pick entirely different angles for both sets, one of which doesn't even match any existing marking or panel line on the wing. :rolleyes:

I agree.

Compare to Hasegawa 1/72 marking, these does have rooms for improvement.

Now that I look at the photo from @tekering again, I wonder how Bandai painted these such that there is no black paint under the white lettering?

I am guessing white on black will show shadow so they have to mask or shape the tampo of the black to avoid the problem. Extra cost.

Also strange that the white paint come off while the black is not affected by the thinner used. Using different type of paint for white and black?

Obviously I have no clue about tampo printing process.

They probably printed the black and white ink onto a transfer plate or the like, possibly silkscreen or something similar?

If I'm remembering right tampo printing uses a silicon pad (hence the name) with a negative of the design engraved into it to pick up ink and press it onto the object.

Edit: If you can stomach really cringey advertisement videos I found one that has a decent overview of the process: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=AX3fwGpT6Gs

What meltdown you’re talking about? That’s probably Bandai’s game plan. We have to buy 2, so we can use both boosters on one like in the anime, and have a plain vanilla one for display. :rolleyes:

Fans of the vf-11 DX aka buyer meltdown :p 
But nothing much would come out of complaining, bandai got everyone by the ahem...wallets. :rolleyes: 

Lol buying 2 wont help if bandai doesnt include attachment points for the boosters underside...thats going the extra mile for anime accuracy....which uhh how do i say it...bandai-ed...

Does anyone knows if you can store the gunpod in the shield?

No, you can't.  The gunpod is one of the most disappointing things in this otherwise pretty great package, imo.

You can kinda-sorta simulate storing the gun behind the shield by putting the gunpod on that arm slot.  But it only looks ok-ish at certain angles.

Now i must have this. Good place to buy?

*edit* Nevermind, jungle has the best price :)

That's not including the 5% processing fee and its sealed.

Try the For Sale boards here if anyone has a set for sale, if not, then Manda (from 26k yen to 28k yen). If you had caught my post back in Sept 26th, there was one for 23k yen.

wotafa's new "technical" review of the DX YF-19...

 

Oh wow, so when transforming starting from fighter we should lift and slide the wing up before attempting to pull the wing tabs out from the leg, which would make the process a whole lot easier? If this is the case, I wish I had known. I thought I was going to break the toy the first time transforming. Lol I had to get creative and make use of fishing lines.
