Update 11/03/2009: Finished building this wonderful kit, shots of the build can be found here.
I was antsy in the house because my EMS package hadn’t arrived yet after two weeks, so my wife, the ever loving wife that she is, told me that maybe I should drop by the post office to check if the package was there already, since I was going to run errands anyway. And I was, “You can do that?” So I did and to my surprise it was indeed there already. Yippee!
A few weeks back I had placed an order at HLJ for the VF-25G because it was on sale for only Y2,700 or 40% off from the original price. The VF-25G is Michael Braun’s custom VF-25 Messiah in sniper configuration as found in the Macross Frontier series. The kit is just your regular VF-25G with sniper rifle, shield and knife. It doesn’t come with Super Packs, that has to be bought separately.
As I got home the first thing I did was rifle through the manual and check if the parts were complete. Sure enough as stated in the manual it came with the 13 plates, decals, stickers and metal rods. The VF-25G is a snap fit model which doesn’t require any paint or glue. For more information as to how the kit parts look like, you can check out its product page at Hobby Search.
Reading through the manual really exercised my Japanese because its really rusty. I remember a time when I was gunning for San-kyuu certification and could really read a lot of Japanese kanji, now I can barely remember them. I should really try to study Japanese all over again because it could be good for my career as well as for this site… hahaha, talk about motivation! Why did you study Japanese?, so that I could assemble Plamodels Sir!
Aniweys, here’s some of the stuff I found in the manual that could be interesting. Can’t really say that the translation is accurate or the meaning is correct, so kindly use at your own risk.
