Hachette Collection 1/24 VF-1S (subscription collectable)


CF18

Recommended Posts

@sqidd here is a playlist of someone building the model.  He is not doing anything too fancy other than applying panel lining.  Others have gone on to completely rebuild the electronics, etc.  I think he is up to Volume 24 at this point.  This will give you a sense of the size of it as well.  I'd volunteer to build it for you, but I live in Canada...

Thank you. 

I think I'm going to pass though. I've been emailing back and forth with them and this is their exact quote when asked about SSP's.....which are a deal breaker for me.

Q: Are these plans to release Super and Strike parts for this in the future?

A: Not so far and probably not in the future

You can still get the pilots for the model even if you are not subscribed to Hachette.

All you need to do is cut the number labels from volumes 1 to 30, stick them in the self-made envelope of volume 30 and send it to Hachette’s headquarters. Valid only in Japan though.

I suspect I'll end up buying off YJA or the like.

I still haven't shipped vol 29 and 30 yet anyway.

They were actually quite helpful through email. Maybe try that if you can't find one. I haven't seen a pilot come up yet and I looked for a bit.

Man, I wish they were doing SSP's. That would have been enough to push me over the edge. If they ever do one in Battroid with SSP's my wallet will break down into it's individual atoms as a byproduct of coming out of my pocket so fast!

Maybe you missed this above,;)

I wonder. Do you think this is something that could be done with a Tenso address?

They were going to ship everything directly to Tenso for me. I don't see why it would be an issue.

He must be REALLY cold - he's all blue! Looking good. - MT

Hard to create the tinted visor effect:lol:. I’m almost done with the cockpit. Will try to remove  the seam line on the canopy  glass and will make a stand. Instead of keeping it in a drawer waiting for the rest, I will display it properly.

Lol, actually, I've always wanted to see Saeba Ryo in Skull leader's cockpit.  Most epic crossover, ever.  It would also render Roy Focker impossible to kill :)

Got the pilot and looked good, but can be improved. Now Roy Focker has a face!

Those wrists don't look right at all.  Are the forearms upside down somehow?

This is the expensive vol. 35

I noticed mine had paint that easily smudged so I’m guessing that drove demand for replacements as well. The white text on the black paint was especially problematic. Might be worth spraying some clear coat in limited areas.

no, but the shape seems all kinds of not right to me...

Kits 70 and 71 show how the leg will move to attach the strike pieces. I really do hope they come out with a super/strike set that teased on the first issue but we’ll see if it actually happens.
