Yamato 1/60 VF-1 No Paint Kit Build Tips by KuWa

Yamato 1/60 VF-1 No Paint Kit Build Tips by KuWa

Just saw this posted at Yamato Toys official site, some assembly tips for building the 1/60 No Paint Kit series of Yamato Toys by KuWa. Just copy paste the Japanese text into Google Translate so that you can understand, can't guarantee a 100% correctness in the translation though.

The 1/60 VF-1 No Paint kit series of Yamato Toys comprises of the VF-1S, VF-1J, VF-1D and VF-1A. They are basically unassembled toys fof the 1/60 Macross line of Yamato Toys. The released VF-1S, VF-1J and VF-1A come molded in white while the VF-1D came out in the molded orange hue color scheme of the VF-1D of Hikaru Ichijo from the very first SDF Macross anime that came out in the 80's.

I myself was able to have the wonderful opportunity to build this excellent model kit. I made a hypothetical VF-1A Miria version of it. Before building it, I first translated the assembly manual to English in order to make it easier for me.
