    Hi, I'm new around here and I'd just like to share a little project I did a while ago. I got one of those "no-paint un-built" 1/60 Valkyrie kit and built it up like Jet fire.

    There's a little more about it here too

    looks cool. if you wanted to you could add more for jetfire. i think his leg fin colors could be swapped the other way black then red and his eye could be red.

    I thought about making the visor red, but I did wanna make it a little more autobot blue.

    That is interesting, like the sound of the kits, it would be nice if there were more available, is it a Ban Dai thing? Looks great!

    It was made by Yamato, it was one of their web exclusives. Hobby-Link had it on their site for a while but now it's gone. It was a great idea, I would love to see more companies do this.

    Great work.

    I'm actually surprised that there aren't more of these made with the unpainted 1/60 available.

    Yeah I know, it's like almost no one got the kit. Not even the guys on Macross-world talked much about it.

    I think one of the key things is that the stickers that come with it are pretty much the ones that are already on the hero VF-1s.

    If they had other colors that weren't already used I would've bought one.

    The stickers kinda sucked too, they had a thick transparent boarder around them that needed to be trimmed off. The chest labels didn't really fit all that nicely either. I used a lot of the little detail labels, but I did some custom paint for the chest and shoulders.

    Yeah, I'm tempted to get a 1/60 fast pack to paint red.

    Thanks, I'd love to make another one but the kits are so hard to build.

    This looks fantastic, super-clean! Nice job. Is there a red panel that covers the cockpit glass in bot mode?

    yeah, it's battroid mode heat-shield, I didn't know what color to make it so I went with red. Made for a nice place to put the autobot symbol.

    Yeah man, I love that WST Jetfire you made! Your has a fast-pack too! Those Toynami 1/100 are rather nice toys. You get a lot of toy for your money.

    he's awesome. If I ever revisit Jetfire, I want to go this route. Only thing I don't dig on the VF-1S is the hands. How much do these cost, by the way?
