    Does anybody know if this killer figure is available in 1/55 scale? It say's that this one is 1/48 which is bigger than Jetfire.
    If there is a 1/55 version, I have a killer idea for it! I just love the combination of black/gold and think it would look awesome with gold-plated armor!
    Speaking of which, any such armor available for 1/48? 1/48 VF-1S 25th Anniversary

    For all your Macross needs. :thumb 

    As for that particular scheme of VF, it's only available in 1/48. It's one of Yamato's anniversary figures. There wasn't any FAST Packs made for it in that color scheme, unfortunately.

    Only Bandai makes the 1/55 scaled VF-1s, I believe. Also, the 1/48s and 1/60 v2s that Yamato makes are much more articulated than the 1/55s.

    Well the 1/55 mold is G1 Jetfire after all.

    I have the G1 Jetfire, I just love this black/gold color scheme. It's a shame there is no fast-pack/armor for it as it would be kick ass in gold.
    Think any of the customizers could make a set for it?
    It's a pitty this is not available in 1/55. :( 
    I have thought about getting the larger scale models.

    I'm sure a customizer could do up some fast packs/strike parts, but unfortunately the parts for the Yammy 1/48's have gotten pretty tough to track down. I have even seen some sales for the fast/strike parts go for more than an actual 1/48 Valk.

    Aside from the scarcity the Yamatos lend themselves well to modelers/customizers.

    i have made a G1 jetfire out of a 1/48 scale macross and fast packs and yeah those armour parts are tough to find at a good price! i would be willing to make them for anyone but in solid gold colour would be tough to match! as the gold striping on that valk looks pretty sweet i would go with black armour and gold highlighting to look super-stealthy!

    I was thinking of sending the parts to Chrome-Tech USA who specializes in chroming and gold-plating model car parts. I was thinking of gold-plating to imulate the G1 episode The Golden Lagoon where they dipped them selves in "Electrum" and I think it would look bitching with gold-plated armor.
    What would it cost to make this for 1/48 scale? Needs to look identical to Jetfires parts.

    I was going to say, a month ago I saw somebody selling a Jetfire "Masterpeice" that was made out of a 1/48 scale Macross figure. Would that have been you nellie131?

    Ebay:
    There are 1/48th fast-packs Just nothing that matches it in color. You could get an one of the 1/48 fast-packs and paint it gold yourself.

    Here's a 1/48 VF-1S Yamato Anniversary Valkyrie: 1/48 VF-1S 25th Anniversary

    There are absolutely no 1/48 scaled FAST Packs at the 5 online stores I buy from. They're sold out everywhere. Your best bet is eBay.

    Um, yes that's the one I'm currently looking at. I'll see if fleebay has any after I get the figure, whenever that will be.

    Well, I did find my G1 Jetfire, but I'm looking at that black/gold version anyway. It just look's killer!
    Reminds me of the old classic racing cars from the John Player Special day's.

    no it wasnt me but mines similar, i know some people have found my zombie thread on it in radicons somewhere! but chrome plating a 1/48 scale would cost a lot id imagine, there are loads of parts to them and it would rub/scrape like a bitch!
