Yes, that a nice build. Very original. Not really realistic but who cares ? The purple fits it perfectly.

I like your Valkyrie. Is that your own color scheme or a color variation? I don't know what YOT is or recognize the character on the VF-1.

Did you hand paint the purple? It seems washed out, not solid, not sure if its the pictures or the paint.

If it is washed out, my suggestion is either airbrushing or use a grey/black primer for the purple section.

Other than that, i think it looks good  ;)

Hi,
Thank you :).
Funaka its my own scheme, I used the minmay limited edition from hasegawa as a refence and picked some aoshima car decals. The YOT is Yoichi of tomorrow, which I only learned about from the decal set, not a macross figure but some other type of manga.

Garylok the white and purple were airbrushed, not sure what you meant by washed out, I sprayed them over the white basis, and after some layers the look of the purple was a bit varied, but I liked it so stopped there. In any case I need to get more experienced with painting the non military colors, so I hope in my next model I'll manage to paint these colors better :).

I dont know, it could be just the lighting.

It just looks as if its the effect of a really thinned down paint on white plastic. A bit like a watercolour effect.

I see the purple does appear to have been applied in thinned layers, but man it looks neat on a jet!  It helps i think to show the panel wash and the details of the kit.  At first I didn't like the effect but seeing it finished is always another story.  I really appreciate it now seeing it all done!  Well done man.

I may steal this idea! Sort of like a modern/anime take on WWII fighters with pinups on them. And I love purple too so this is cool to me. Nice work.

Wow, if you had talked to me about the purple I would have shook my head - but seeing it, it looks fantastic. Very nice custom.
