Macross Build – VF-25G w/Fold Speakers

VF-25Gメサイア w/フォールドスピーカー  1/72スケール、ハセガワから

Back to Macross! Here is a VF-25G Messiah, with Fold Speakers, piloted by Michael Blanc (sometimes know as Michele), with Ranka Lee in the backseat. 1/72 scale plastic model kit from Hasegawa. From the Japanese animation “Macross Frontier”.

VF-25G-A

Took me a little longer to build this one, for some reason. No real troubles, though I did take a vacation back to America during the build.

VF-25G-C

I think Hasegawa redid the decals for this kit. I remember the ones on the VF-25F/S being really difficult to work with. These I really didn’t have a problem with.

VF-25G-F

Specifically, this set-up is from Episode 12, Fastest Delivery. The N.U.N.S. 33rd Naval/Marine Zentradi Fleet at planet Galia 4 start to mutiny when Sheryl Nome has to cancel a concert, so they emergency fold Ranka Lee to the planet in the back of Michele’s Messiah, equipped with the Fold Speakers. And you thought YOUR car stereo set-up was impressive!

VF-25G-H

I also lost Michele’s head right when I was finishing the build. Accidentally picked it up with tweezers (I had unknowingly set the tweezers down over his head), and heard something go flying off into one of the corners of my build room. I also have a VF-25G Super Messiah kit, so I stole the head from that. When I get around to building that, it’ll just have to be pilot-less.

This kit was completed on July 31st, 2017.
