1/72 VF-25F Alto with Super Parts

Got spare times, so up-load some new post for you all guys. This is my first kit building, a lot of mistake done here so that i can make an improvement in the future, right ? So here it is, the 1/72 VF-25F Alto and the Super Parts for VF-25.

Picture below are the 1/72 VF-25F Alto with Super Parts attached, although right now just finishing my VF-27 kit, which will be put up it in the next post because Alto was the first in-line! ('',) Actually got this kit finished last 2008, i know i'am so yesterday haha.. Anyway, that time i was in a hurry just build it strightaway once its in my hand with incomplete tool. I bought the Super Parts for this kit saperately (see pic above) because that time there was no VF-25F Super Pack which nowadays you can find it anywhere :(

Front view
Some parts was not decal, too lazy.. my bad people. Maybe next time if got the time

Side view

It looks so cool with those two clear blue attach on both sides which the DX versions don't have. I wonder why ?!

Rear view

The pilot are still in the runner, want to paint it first

The 01 Action Base SMS Ver.

Now here i want to show you some of the really interesting features, from the picture below just look at the booster part. Can you spot the dots ?? Yeah... that's right, i found this after finish coating it. Worse, the dots are everywhere !! All this because i used a fake top-coat( which i found out later on) that i've bought in keybee that time, some of you may know which shop it is. The cann looks just like the small Mr.Hobby top coat which is in blue color, but there is no 'Mr.Hobby' name on it, so beware.

Looks irritating does it ?! Lesson learn here.

Too bad i throw the cann before taking a picture of it. Anyway, after finish building my kit then i sprey it with top-coat and then keep it dry for the whole day. The next day i found out that my kit couldn't transform because all the moving parts are stick togather like glue because of the coating. Until now, my kit just stuck in fighter mode. How unlucky me huh... ~

Even after you coat it, still the decal comes off...

My poor VF-25F, no wonder Alto didn't want to seat in the cockpit..

So people, before you go out buy some hobby stuff.. make sure you read their labels first or better still, study them, google it, do your own research for the things you want to buy. Know exactly what the things are for and you know how to used it. Thats it for now, till then.

See you next deculture...
