Bandai 1/144 Macross 7 VF-17 Stealth Valkyrie WIP

Bandai 1/144 Macross 7 VF-17 Stealth Valkyrie 1

VF-17 which ive been very slowly working on for some time from Macross 7, VF-17 is my favorite valk from the series.

Got 4 of the these kits which you can make either a VF-17S or the VF-17D. The the Battriod and Valk ive built so far are the VF-17D with white marking pilot by either Gamblin or Physica.

Kind of lacking as much detail as i would have liked but more than enough to be accurate to the one screen version i reckon. Fairly easy construction as it was meant to be a snap kit but one that ive found does not fit all the well but than it is around 15 year old kit.

Plan on making several version of these including VF-17D Blue marking Diamond Force version, VF-17S Yellow marking Gamblin version which is the colours i think he has when he was station in City 7, VF-17S all Red Milia Fallyna Jenius version and maybe if i can mae one a Radome or Macross Dynamite 7 Green version which appeared in that OVA.

Have to make my own decal fro these as there aren't any supplied with the kit, so far my attempt at making them have resulted in failure.

So my guess on your work area is correct! This stealth valkyrie sure is cool. From your posting, I sure have good knowledge on Macross 7 bro!
