Thanx for the comments! Have been busy with work this past week (overtime to the max), but at least I've started to rebuild the arms and replace the missing forearms and get better support posts for his joints. Hopefully, if overtime slows down, I could get the other arm worked on. So before I go, here's a pic of what the inside of the arm looks like. It shows how the fist slides in and out of the arm hole.

Are there any Macross/Robotech figures that are scaled to fit inside this Valkyrie? It'd be great to see this painted up like Roy's fighter... (Or are you planning on another pilot's valk?)

And then, a comparison next to an original 1:55th transforming figure (be it Jetfire or its Macross/Robotech counterpart)!

I've always fantasized about attempting this. I also fantasize about making the Hovertank fully transformable.
I can't wait to see it finished.

Yeah, I have a Rick Hunter figure that I'll take pics with once I get back to work on him. As mentioned earlier, I've been swamped with overtime lately, but when it dies down, I'll get back on him.

I have this same Veritech fighter that I acquired years ago when cleaning up my aunt's basement. My cousins had moved away long before then so I rescued it in hopes of making it transform like you're doing. I don't think I'll ever get around to it, but it makes me very happy to see that you are doing such a stellar job on it.

Cool sig pic made by REDLINE. Thanks buddy!

That is what I'm doing to this piece. In these pics, I held the pieces together with tape, just to get a dry run out of it. Upon seeing it, I needed pics. Again, not done, but I'm taking it slowly, since a replacement is rarely on ebay and when it is, it's usually for $50-$100+ BTW, I am missing the canopy, back wings, and rocket boosters for this, so if anyone here has any extra, please LMK.
Enjoy.

UPDATE 3-22

More WIP pics. Got hinges put on and hooked on arms. I did the arms 2 years ago, but will be reworking them with new tension pins and new plastic pieces covering the missing arm parts.

Slow progress, but here's an update for those who wanted scale. Here's scale with a KO "Jetfire" and a Rick Hunter figure from the Matchbox line.
Also, just got the chest plate put on
