    Ok got the arms on and the pilot's glued in place with hands on the controls.

    This was just the accessory I needed to finish up the cockpit. Thanks a million Janx ;)

    "Even you could get laid in a place like this Goose"

    "I'd be happy to find someone to talk dirty to me."

    Is there any real difference in the newer instructions?

    I noticed the instructions file in the recently released VF-1S Minmay Guard package is not the same as the one for all other previous A/J/S .zips. Is there a real difference in the contents, or is it related to the raster-to-vector update? BTW the newer version is larger but doesn't compress so well.

    Systematic Torture :p

    Hello All,

    Building the last parts on the VF-1A Max, the triple missiles :p It's systematic torture :p

    They're partsy but turn out great :D I also found that they are very hard to get looking right when printed on card stock so I printed them to construction paper and they were far easier to build that way.

    I got one set made and another in it's final assembly stage. I have a 3rd cut out and read for making sub assemblies.

    It's time consuming and for some strange reason I get terribly bored when bulding weapons (the GU-11 wasn't bad though), but I'm getting through it :p

    Enjoy the pics, hope to have the full monty up soon ;) I hope this does Master Shunichi proud :D

    Getter, two questions:

    1. Which color scheme would that be in the picture?

    2. What reference material are you using in that same pic?

    Your model is absolutely unbelievable! Your canopy and the pilot are the details that put that model over the top!!!!

    Hee hee,

    1) The Scheme would be Jetfire form G1 Transformers :D

    2) The ref. is screen shots of a comercial and design boards I found on Wikipedia while searching for pics of Jetfire.

    Jetfire is in fact a Super VF-1S so I had to do the scheme ;) Almost forgot it to.....gasp!!! Blasphemy!!!

    Thanks for the kind words to. I agree the cockpit, pilot (grats to Janx), and clear canopy just adds what these models needed ;)
