1:100 Stonewell/Bellcom VF-1A Valkyrie, "085/3" of the Canadian 'Snowbirds' demonstration team, 2018 (ARII kit, unofficial fan art version) - WiP

Home-grown, pimped version of the OOB display. The round basis is the same, but it has been covered with black, foamed rubber - easy to glue onto the styrene, matt without paint and seams can be a even out with dry sand paper.

 

A soft wire is attached to the back, holding (in this case) a former Saab 37 drop tank which can be attached to the kit and is still moveable.

 

Inside of the round base, lead beads and plaster add weight to the bottom and improve stability.
