Nice build!

I always like seeing people come up with their own color schemes.

Knowing the source, I'm sure that the Destroying Falcons colors were something like "neon blue with pink highlights and yellow trim"...

Thanks! After years of going


After years of going to Macross Con as well as seeing all these unusual alternate schemes in Hasegawa kits and Model Graphix, it was only a matter of time before I came up with my own. I think it came out well for my first attempt but I have a better idea where I'm going next time.

ha! That would be funny and I'm such a person of doing by the book, I would do it!

Thanks again!

The VF-1D head is my favorite

The VF-1D head is my favorite Valkyrie head, and flat gray is always my favorite robot color scheme.

When I was a kid, I had a

When I was a kid, I had a small model of the VF-1D that was only about 3 or 4 inches tall in Battroid mode, and it didn't transform. This looks a lot like the model kit I wanted to have when I was a kid, even though I probably would have broken this model, heh. Great review!

Awesome color scheme!

Hi Leonardo. I've been a fan of Macross since the eighties. The first series and its designs are my favorites. I just signed up to this site very recently and have been reading your reviews of these kits as I recently acquired some of these and am currently building them for old time's sake. I have to say I remember how hard these particular kits were and are. Your handling of this is fantastic and the color scheme you came up with is gorgeous! Keep up the good work!

Just found this Comment Kystios,

Thanks for the comment and reading my Macross model kit articles. Its nice to revisit these old kits as they were the kits of my youth! Getting a second chance at building these has been a fun experience and it is nice to get some modern reviews of these kits online.

I will have both the 1/72 Imai/Bandai & WAVE Destroid Defender coming up shortly!

Thanks again!
