    Hello,

    Thanks for all the cool support on the strike cannon for my MPC. For my next project I will be traveling to NYC to hopefully buy in hand, a 1/60 VF-25s. My ambition is to repaint, and a minor possibly retool the VF-25s to look like a modified vf-2ss of Macross II. Let me know what you think of my idea. Pics of progress will come to follow. Please let me know what you think of the premise

    Thanks,

    Thomas

    I don't know if it's possible to just minorly retool due to the way the VF-25 transform (that with the nose rotating upside-down and the leg panel doubling up on itself, you basicly have to reverse that whole assembly and glue them together). The plane siloettes are similar but you'd have to do a ton of extra work on the robot and gerwalk.

    But I guess it's a much better and less costly affair than hunting the one existing VF2 model kit and giving it more articulation.

    here are some of the modifications I have in mind so far. I ll actually have to wait to have the piece in hand before I plan further.

    Feet:
    Sanding and repainting the feet of the 25s to match the 2ss

    Body:

    The whole body of the 25s will be repainted white, and then detailed in the color scheme of the 2ss

    Head:
    Repainting the head of the 25s to match the 2ss. Also adding the red jewel.

    Weapon:
    The weapon will probably just be repainted.

    Joints will be repainted as well to match.
