Not quite sure if the subject has been discussed yet but i was wondering...is it possible to use the old yamato variable stand on the new Bandai 1/48 line?

You probably going to need a custom adapter for it to be able to use it.

Thank you, by any chance do you know if there are any available already?

Chaotic Yeti has yet to make one for the DX VF-1 (I believe) once he's free, not too busy with his new job and has time to design new adapters.

This is why I don't buy the PF version. In my head, I rather do all the panel linings or weathering if I want to add it. So all of it will look the same. ;) 

Or I'll just save a lot of money and send everything to @Lolicon so all of my Valks will have that Premium 'Lolicon-Special-Touch' Edition. And all the landing gears will be white. :rolleyes:

 

Man I don't even have time to finish off my own stuff, much less others'. :lol:

Be careful with panel lining and weathering. Once you start, you will want to do it to every Valk you have. The ones without it just look too plain by comparison. 
 

Can confirm. Just did a 'quick' panel lining of my copy of Roy and now I NEED to do the rest. I didn't even do a very good job, but it's HEAPS better than vanilla. I should do a side by side comparison... hmm

The biggest issue with being a collector is you need double the space - to display and then to keep the box in as mint a condition as possible too... This doesn't even take into account the multiples of copies people buy, which if displayed in various modes, is double space again :(

I am lucky enough that I have a big ol' closet connected to my classroom, so my Valk and TF boxes hide among middle school science supplies :p

Panel lining complete on my IJ. Eagerly awaiting the next round of TV Fast Packs to ship in April hopefully!?!

that's beautiful.  question though, I see you leave all the factory markings on there.  but I've been wondering do you guys clear coat this before/after or do you just make the panel lines only?  reason being, I just started doing panel lines on my first gundam model and have been thinking about doing a macross valkyrie toy too.  Or if you have a guide I can look at, that would be cool.

 

also yeah I'm waiting for my fast packs too.  I ordered a couple sets.  I'm going to put them on my TV Max and have another set spare.

Definitely do a matte clear top coat if you are weathering and P lining. If you want to p line without a clear coat, I would recommend one of these.

Nice thanks, so do you take a bare valk and then panel line, or do you clear coat it then panel line, and then clear coat over that?  Also I'm new to this so my first panel line job isn't so great because of the molding lines on my first model kit but it is okayish.  I have an easier time where the molding is sharp.  Right now I'm waiting for more paint though.  I really need a better source to buy tamiya paint from, my local train hobby store is taking forever to get my paint order in.

I prefer these: https://www.hlj.com/gundam-marker-extra-thin-type-gray-for-panel-lines-gnzgm302p

Usually called "extra thin" or "pour type" markers.

They work via capillary action and will spread down crevices and lines on their own. Requires less tracing and less cleanup, they can also get into crevices where even fine-tips won't fit.
