    Default Next one to restore. Vision VLX in Amber Fade :)

    Pretty sure this is a VLX? the shells are 6/8 but I can't seem to see the ply differences. Badge does say Birch Ply. Going to make a lovely kit

    Is that a lacquer or a wrap (would the 'L' in VLX stand for 'Lacquer'?)?
    It's pretty.

    That Fiberskyn head matches the set perfectly.

    How did you get the Pearl logo on the head, though?
