Vf-1J Battroid - Hasegawa 1/72

I think a lot of Americans my age were introduced to anime by Robotech. As most people know by now, the first 1/3rd of that show is the anime Macross, but edited into the Robotech story. Macross quickly became one of my favorite animes of all time. There's just something cool about airplanes that turn into robots. Hikaru's VF-1J is probably my favorite of the variants. I just love the colors and the way the head looks compared to the rest. These Hasegawa kits build like traditional models, molded in one color with lots of seam filling and gluing, unlike the ease of Gunpla with their molded in color snap parts. This was a fun build.
