Some photo edits with handphone app 'PicsArt'
Started late on 'Macross Delta' and I feel that it succeeded in bringing back memories of the first 'Super Dimensional Fortress Macross' with scenes of VF-1 in the first few episodes to retain the old guards. To attract new fans, Macross has incorporated the idea of anime idol in the form of galaxy singing diva's style as idol group 'Walküre', carrying on from 'Macross Frontier'. Somehow I feel that Macross Delta didn't match the height of 'Macross Frontier'. IMHO, I still like the anime as a whole.
I got these trio as a set and they make perfect theme from diva to valkyrie. The Arad Molders' custom VF-31S Siegfried from 'Macross Delta' is the model kit in 1/72 scale. It can transform between all three forms - fighter, battroid and gerwalk. I have chosen VF-31S primarily for the leader class antennas on the head. I have display the kit in robot (battroid) mode as model kit tends to be fragile unlike the toy. The kit is partly painted with an overall matte top coat. The model required quite an extensive use of decals though. I cool gimmick is that the rifle can be mounted on the right shoulder like a cannon.
I'm able to present the fighter (plane) mode is a miniature 'Mecha Colle' kit. This way, you can see the insignia of Arad Molders on top of the plane. Very small kit which is almost unnoticed when place together with the 1/72 valkyrie and Mikumo Figure. Still pretty nice on close up with stickers and panel lines applied. Arad Molders, the squad leader and pilot of VF-31S, is assigned to protect the lead vocalist of Walküre, Mikumo Guynemer. My figure of Mikumo is the more budget SQ Quality Banpresto's UFO catcher prize figure. Nonetheless, I fancy Mikumo in your Walküre combat attire with those speakers on the dress with her long flowing violet hair with pastel blue dye. Checkout the Walküre hand sign in the posing. Your will be deculture!
