I was a fan of SDF Macross and the VF-1 valkyrie so I wanted to build one. Although they are fully transformable, it's best not to touch them since they are kind of flimsy quality. The Roy Focker's VF-1S isn't quite finished yet. :D

Cool. I've always wanted to get one of those Bandai Macross kits. Too bad they made the VF-1J (my favorite variant) a P-Bandai exclusive.

I love the level of detail you put into those!

Very nice. Did you use the stickers or the water slide decals? The water slide decals are crap IMHO. I had a hell-ish time getting the chest decal to conform to the contours! I also resorted to painting most of the black stripes in my build.

I use waterslide because the colors are more accurate. The colors of the stickers are either off or too light. The black stickers look like off black next to the waterslide ones. The chest piece i use a lot of decal softener. The only thing I don't like about waterslides is they will come off if you touch them before the clear coat.

Both are bandai with super and strike packs.

I'm getting really bored after building the same plane twice. I don't want to look at them anymore :shock:
