Dual Building

Next I will try to do two totaly diferent kits at the same time, so this might take longer then my usual moth and a half per build.

Hasegawa 1/72 VF-0S (Battroid mode)

So I finally fixed the leg problem and took some photos of the kit, I have to say, this one was a nightmare, not because this kit is bad, on the contrary this kit is a great looker, even without decals is an eye catcher, the problems are all on me, and even with all those problems it ended up looking decent, but I'll be building this again in the future. Lots of little details everywhere you look at, and probably this is the best hasegawa kit I have builded so far, the only problems I encountered are the pegs for the legs which are too weak, and that if you want the pieces to fit correctly, you'll need to remove the pegs, otherwise they will be uneven and they will appear to be bigger than the other, but they're not, you just remove the pegs and use some cement and sand paper to have a perfect piece. 
It's a real shame that I made so many mistakes on this one... but Im thinking I might experiment on doing some rust on this kit, maybe even some battle damage, well see...
So. here it is the gallery for the VF-0S battroid mode:

OK I guess is nos "legalk to post pics of my entry for the HLJ contest, this iwas mine, the hasegawa !/72 VF-19 with high monouver missiles.

As you can see, this is a very diferent colour scheme than the one that comes "in the box"
what I dont like aboput macross is the flashy colours, what should look like a high tech military plane ends up looking like a race car, so what I tried here is to have the best of both worlds, the military colours but still eye catching, Im really happy how this kit turned out.
