1/48 VF-1A Valkyrie "low visibility"

May 30, 2022 · in Sci-fi · · 13 · 2.3K

I tried to create a weathering finish on 's scale kit, using the box art as a reference.
We aimed to create a finish that gives the impression that this is what the Valkyrie would look like if it were real, with a slight increase in detail.

  1. Excellent weathering, emulating the grungy look of modern jets.

  2. Ditto with Dan's comment, Dagored!
    Superb result!

  3. Very realistic looks, Dagored @dagored
    The weathering is superbly done.

  4. I agree, that’s a stunning weathering effect. Congrats!
    This is one of those cartoon planes inspired by the F-14 obviously

  5. I loved Robotech, and you did justice to the Valkyrie. Did the kit come with the gold-tinted cockpit, or is this something you did?

  6. Well done, @dagored. Weathering is very effective.

  7. Uber cool! Another Macross/Robotech fan and an excellent build as well!

    I did also did my 1/48 Valkyrie with heavy weathering ala F14 style.

    I really like they way you did your colour modulation, weathering and the gold tint on the canopy just adds so much more.
