    Hello All,

    Yesterday evening I got started on the VF-1A Max type, Fighter mode. I had printed out before Janx had to make the files smaller by re-drawing them in Vector. I struggled with whether or not I should re-print his enhanced versions or just build the one's I did prior.

    Well considering I printed out all 3 modes of 4 variants totaling 12 models I decided to go ahead and build the older version. Janx's version have all the nice decals that mine lacked, the pilot's name's, and much nicer directional venier details. Aside from that there's little diffrence when printed so I can live without the decals and nice directional veniers.

    Here is what I got so far. I built it gear up (I struggled with that to). All that's left is to add the small detail parts, canopy, and make the weapons. This is my first non-prototype build and I must say I'm very pleased with the results so far. Max's VF-1A has to be my favorite color scheme of Macross so it was natural for me to start here :D

    While uploading the pics I got most of the detail parts done. It's late so installing them and pics will have to wait till tomorrow :p

    Enjoy the pics.

    Looks brilliant Getter, the VF-1A Max tv scheme is still awaiting approval atm, its on the first page so suspects its been missed. I'll flag it up when I post the rest of the DYRL Schemes later today.

    New schemes and Super packs should be uploaded by tomorrow night.

    This is awesome. Can't wait to see the results.

    Thanks again for all your efforts. I can only imagine hoards of Robotech fans getting their hands on these models and building them.

    Commander,

    Glad you likes :D

    I just got the detail parts on last night (pics later on this evening). I do intend to do weapons, GU-11 and the standard Triple Missile paks. Filled the canopy mold last night to so that's in the works.

    Gerwalk is coming up after this one ;)

    Hello All,

    I finally got the pics taken. Here we have all the detail parts installed. I only placed the canopy on as I need to do something bout how the inner frame shows a bit on the edges. I think it turned out failry well but I'm not 100% happy with the canopy. It's ok for my 1st success at making a clear canopy so I can live with it :p

    Working on the weapons now. Enjoy the pics.
