Doyusha 1/144 Macross Plus YF-21


This is a die-cast YF-21 from Macross Plus which i nice but not as detailed as i would have liked it to be. And because its die-cast the paint work looks really strange kinda, no character to it.


Comes in a really nice box and well protected.


Seems to be a fairly accurate version of the VF-21 but it the paint work which really brings this down for me. The paint is factory perfect but it just looks so lifeless.

Wonder what i can do to improve this, will have to be repainted and the landing gear is really lacking detail so that will have to go.

Most expensive 1/144 fighter so far bought but i knew because its die-cast that it would not be as good as a model kit but i really do like the design.
