low-vis maybe too plain for this plane (pun intended). But the current paint scheme looks like something Strawberry Shortcake would approve of.
Real nice, however I'm not a fan of the paint scheme.
Are there any good screencaps/artwork/art that show the various SV-51 paint schemes?
I seem to recall seeing a "low-vis" or generic version somewhere (other than for .5 seconds in the anime).

Somebody, somewhere, asked if it was inspired by the F-18. And to me, it does look more like an F-18 than a Flanker. Anyway, I like it.
Well, NOW I can see why they call it Flanker inspired
But as much as I like Nora, I'm gonna wait for the DD version.

You're right David! As I look at it, it has a F-18-esque to it.
If you tell me to look for a Flanker in there, I can see it---but I too think it's much more F-18-esque. (Honestly I don't like any of M0's planes)

Considering there is no line art of the SV-51's landing gear yet and I don't think it has ever been shown in the anime either, I strongly suspect that it is Hasegawa's guess.
The gear is "ultra-Russian" to the point of being a stereotype. Could be Kawamori's design, could be Hasegawa guessing.

LOL...I was thinking the same thing!
Looks like this thing will require a gallon of MicroSet

Oh if you get one of these models I think they'll change your mind about them. The detail, the precision, the fun.... gurgle
Clean up on aisle six - I just drooled all over the place! I am not that interested in models but I so have to get one, or two. Nice job, Hasegawa!

I've never been a "Yes Man," because I want to be cool and make friends. If you don't like my opinion, well, who gives a damn, I'm entitled to it, just as you are to yours. I have no desire to discuss it further, either you like the SV-51r or you don't, no need for anyone to crusade and waste time trying to change someone else's mind. I'd like to see more respect for other's opinions, and less focus on debating them.

I wouldn't call it ugly but it's not a beauty queen that's for sure. I think it has a retro fighter charm mixed with a modern sleek fighter. It is a very unique design, yet has a familiar look to it. I like the shape and location of the wings and the long, bird like nose. The whole thing is supposed to resemble a bird creature and I think it is successful. I don't care for the pink paint and all the stripes, though. The gray version looks much better.
You're right, it is ugly, fugly even, but I think that's part of its charm, and it definately looks like nothing else in the Macross pantheon of variable fighters.
