This is my first 1/60 scale for the VF series valks. The rest of my collection is in the 1/48 scale. Yamato has made some improvements which is quite visible on this piece. There are more catch that allows easier snap-on of the parts. I like the coating on the cockpit that gives it a multi-coloured kind of finish.
The most preferred mode in my opinion would be the figher mode. The colour scheme of orange and beige worked pretty well and the combination of the Fast Packs makes it looks really good.
Another improvement is the number of pre painted markings has increased on this compared to the 1/48 or even the 1/60 Macross Zero valks.
Gerwalk or Guardian mode; another mode of the Ostrich that I like, the additional hands give it more realism and it comes in handy to achieve certain poses.
Gerwalk with open handThe mode that I do not prefer to display this piece in is the Batteroid mode. Firstly, it's the ugly head unit and secondly it does not come with any firearm.
