Yamato just re-issued the 1/48 scale VF-1S, both Roy Focker’s and Hikaru’s! Since I like Roy’s black/yellow paint scheme more than Hikaru’s black/red paint scheme, I got Roy’s VF-1S.
Today, we’re all about comparisons with the 1/60 scale VF-1S.
Here’s what the 1/48 comes with:
But no display stand mounts, like you’ll find with every 1/60 scale valkyrie!
Okay, okay. I’m biased towards the 1/60, even though the 1/48 has a few more gimmicks, like the antenna on the backpack and the radar in the nosecone. The 1/60 just feels and looks tighter (especially between adjacent parts), and is pre-painted with more emblems.
But if bigger is what you like, the 1/48 is for you!
