Macross build – VF-1S Strike Valkyrie “SVF-101 Grim Reapers”

VF-1Sストライクバルキリー「SVF-101 グリムリーパーズ 」1/72スケールレジンキット、イエローサブマリン・クラブMから。


VF-1S Strike Valkyrie Grim Reapers-A

This is a 1/72 scale VF-1S Strike Valkyrie resin kit from Yellow Submarine/Club M. The Strike design is from the Japanese animation “Macross : Do You Remember Love?”, but the Grim Reapers scheme is from my own imagination.

This kit took entirely too long to complete for several reasons.

* I’m going to a Japanese language school full-time now
* Spent pretty much the entire month of December sick (asthma. don’t feel like building when you’re trying to hack up a lung)
* This kit tried to fight me every step of the way

Actually, because of the fight this kit gave me, I’m taking a break from building resin kits for a while.

The Grim Reapers markings I made myself a few years back, rest of the decals came from my extra supply.

Wait a minute…didn’t I just build a Grim Reapers fighter??

This kit was completed on March 5th, 2018.
