F-toys 1/144 - Macross VF-1J Valkyrie - "Dark Bird" -
1/144 scale Macross VF-1J Valkyrie "Dark Bird" a low-viz space fighter which only had 5 seconds airtime in episode 5 of SDF Macross, when i started this Valkyrie it was called the "Dark Bird" but now yamato have released a 1/60 perfect transformation version the squadron has been given the rather nifty name "The Cavaliers"
Another of the F-toys 1/144 Macross Valkyries that really should have been finished quite some time ago but have never got round to finishing but alas done.
As far as i could tell the "Dark Bird is all royal blue with the front, back and circle on the leg a lighter greyer blue with the red stripe on on wing and a yellow panel at the top of the tail.
Thin k the VF-1 looks best when the wings are in this position in fighter mode, of course the best way a valk look is gerwalk.
Painted the gunpod same colour as the front/back of the legs.
Did have a Alaska base VF-1A in the works but ruined the white doing the panel wash with a gloss coat, oops.
