1/55 Takatoku VF-1S Strike Valkyrie with GBP-1S

Was playing around with the camera settings, this time I used the 1/55 VF-1S Strike Valkyrie by Takatoku that I had since I was a boy in the mid 80's. Metaphorically speaking, the 1/55 Takatoku VF-1S was my Buzz Lightyear while my GI Joe's were my Woody...just a little Toy Story analogy. I already made a review of this before, you can find it here

The toy is definitely showing its age already with the yellowing of some parts. There are some splotches of white where I tried to paint over some areas with some Tamiya Acrylic white. I have no idea why I did this with my young mind at that time.
