The base kit will be limited edition ‘Virgin Road’ VF-1D that Max piloted during his wedding to …...

WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 VF-1S Super Strike Valkyrie Pt.5 – Final Assembly

Time to put everything together! First i attached all the vernier nozzles on the FAST packs. I kept these glossy just like the thrusters. Since I only have 1 clear parts tree I’m stuck with only 1 lens for the beam cannons. I made up a pair of lenses from battery blister pack instead, painted …...

WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 VF-1S Super Strike Valkyrie Pt.4 – Finishing

The fixes required after painting were thankfully minor. The most obvious being the round plate on the backpack. Some careful hand painting fixed it. After a gloss coat, it was time for decals. Since I didn’t have enough of the roundels, I had to use the 2 that were from the old boxing, which is …...

WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 VF-1S Super Strike Valkyrie Pt.3 – Painting

After a few stages of gap filling, I’m ready for painting! I’ll be painting the kit in subassemblies which will make everything easier to handle. Color scheme-wise, I’ll be going for the one below.

WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 VF-1S Super Strike Valkyrie Pt.2 – Construction

Work continues for the engines as I assemble the intakes. The closed vents on the intakes were painted and masked off. Like the main gear doors, the nose gear doors also needed to be modified to fit closed. I added small steps inside the bay as stoppers and assembled the 3 bay door parts into …...

WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 VF-25S Messiah Pt.3 – Finishing

The kit decals went on OK. Some are robust and took handling and adjusting well but others did tear and some careful re-alignment was needed. I also made a big mistake in putting the SMS logo on the wrong side of the tailfins. I had to carefully re-hydrate them to move them to the correct …...

WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 VF-25S Messiah Pt.2 – Painting

Looks patchy after a few rounds of gray to check for seamlines. But it’s finally ready to paint. First is the base of Tamiya XF-1 Flat Black cut with lacquer thinner. The VF-25S is in a 2 tone gray camo. I used MIG AMMO Light Gray for the lighter gray. I’m guessing because the mecha …...
