    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.

    Just a bump and an update. No pics yet. Won the jets. Got them here and will be reworking the arms, legs, and back plate before throwing on the head. While I was waiting for the jets, I pulled out an old WIP I never got finished and am working on him as well. Hopefully, I can juggle my customs with overtime at work. I'll get another update on as soon as I can.

    I applaud the effort.. but imo the original Matchbox toy was a crime against kids ( who opened the box expecting the damn thing to transform )

    Anyway, the canopy is disproportionally large.... so wonder if it won't hurt the overal look too much.

    Btw.... I don't think the Yamato's are ALL THAT either. A bit overrated.

    Nice work so far! This was something I always wished the original toy did. I thought it was rediculous to have a veritech fighter that couldn't at least transform to gerwalk mode.

    I had the Exosquad/ Robotech vertitech fighter back in the day and always thought about making it transformable before I gave it away. Glad to see you're doing it! Nice.
