Hasegawa 1/48 Super Miria (Hi, I'm new.)

Greetings!

Here's my new favorite Valkyrie.

This is my 3rd 1/48 build.  I'm still improving and finding it hard to go back to 1/72s.  I love how the legs lock into the fuselage, the nosecone section is better enforced and the feet can be installed after leg assembly.  The VF-1J was also a step up from my VF-1Ss with extra molded controls, decals for the cockpit and it's setup to accept the HUD pieces.  I didn't use the decals for the cockpit though.  I just painted the molds instead and added the VF-1J cockpit decals to one of my VF-1Ss.

Nice, looks great! How did the build go? I haven't gotten to any of my 1/48 Hasegawa kits yet.

In many ways it's very similar to building a 1/72, but the nozzles are not decals on the 1/48.

Of the 3 I have built the feet very in stiffness.  I sticky tacked the ones that annoyed me.  Also all the armor is held on by sticky tack. 

For my next 1/48 VF-1 I'll use magnets to hold on the leg armor. 

The 1/48s are addictive and about the size of a 1/55 toy.

Good to know...I built a few 1/72s and have a 1/48 in waiting.
