Step Back VF-19! Hold Tight VF-11's! Take Notice VF-2's!
Hobby World depot has reissued their 1/72 Resin VF-4 Lightning III model kit from Flashback 2012. Based off the ultra rare Musasiya kit, HWD correct many of the flaws and updated the kit. 65 finely molded resin, a vacu-form clear canopy and decals are included.
And why not the VF-4? Less than 5 glorious seconds on the screen at the tale end of Flashback 2012, it has to be one of Kawamori's most beautiful fighter designs ever. Other than a few resin and soft vinyl kits, the VF-4 has been sadly and criminally neglected in kit or toy form for far to long.
Unfortunately this will be on the back burner until next year as I have so many projects on the bench right now.
Look for a CDX review sometime next year.
