WIP: Macross Valkyrie VF-1S

September 17, 2008

I continue to build this model and continue to find things to fix. There is a pretty big gap between the fuselage and the canopy, so I decided to add a thin styrene sheet in the back of the cockpit to compensate and then sand it smooth. Lost some panel lines in the process and I probably won’t rescribe. I decided on a color scheme, going off white and red (who paints combat aircraft white anyway). I painted some of the subassemblies but to my surprise, Tamiya masking tape left residues on my painted boosters and now will need to get fixed. These are very nice models but definately too time consuming, Hasegawa continues to unimpress.
