Really Nice! Now if we could just get Northrop-Grumman or Lockheed to build the 1:1 version!

Nice work! The white decal running across the airbrake (?) panel line caught my eye in the last picture.
Did you use all 4970 stencil decals? I love the Hasegawa kits, but ouch... all those decals.

Any problems combining the sub assemblies? My problem with the the generic F14-ish Valks is all the painting/decaling that goes into the lower fuselage assemblies, then gets tricky to neatly manage the final assembly.

My FAVORITE variable fighter from any of the Macross series!

Looking very nice!

Looks excellent...the blue and white contrasting colors make this spacefighter really pop out.

@ mike, I build the VF-0D OOB without using any after market decals and there are some sink marks on the wheel well doors that are very difficult to remove.

More update pics on VF-22S

Great work man!

I'd recommend that you start another post for each build/model. This way, if someone is looking for your VF-22S and doesn't remember it was under your VF-0D posting... he/she will be out of luck!

Cheers,

Chris
