    Im not 100% sure I agree with that. My read on Mirage was that she was an excellent pilot, but not as good as many others because of the pressure she was under from herself and others because of her name and heritage. Messer told her she was too 'By the book" or some such I think. I think by the end of the series we have seen a Mirage who has loosened up a lot and learned to stand on her own feet and for who she is. I wouldn't be surprised to learn she went on to great things. Maybe she will never be as good as her Grandparents, but I think she would be an excellent pilot in her own right.

    Just out of interest, do we know the names of Altos subordinate pilots in his NUNS 171 Squad? I cant recall them being mentioned and couldn't find the info when i looked.

    inflatable was meant to be Unflyable. Apparently my phone doesn't like that phrase. im unclear what those 2 control systems you mentioned are? That said i get the idea; little gain for much loss. understood. Also, I suppose the 29 DOES fly into Atmo with its super packs on... but then it has minor additions that are tightly conformed to the aerodynamics of the plane already.

    Is there any reason a 25 or 31 couldn’t fly in Atmo with their Fast Packs, minus the wing packs? The control surfaces would still be free, and while there would be extra drag, it wouldn’t be unflyable would it?

    Has everyone listened to the latest Macross Speakerpod, and what was revealed therein???

    That's a screenshot from the trailer. The packs over the shoulders; does that look like the wing packs to anyone else? At first I thought maybe it was the rear pack folded into halves, but now I think its the rear wings up horizontally somehow?

    Well that Kai is gonna be a pain in the ass to get. Hoping I can swing it, coz i loves me that plane. The good news is, this makes me more confident about the line. I was worried we wouldn't see the rest, since we hadn't any announcements past the Messer armor. This gives me a little more hope.

    So let's talk paint. By the time of macross Delta, I think the Valks are using a kind of SMart Paint on their fighters. In Episode 7, right at the start as Delta are going onto their mission on the cat planet, The Valks (And Walkures carrier ship) all black shift to this stealth camo. Do we have any idea if this is actually a thing? I ask because suddenly custom colors on a fighter seem like they'd be relatively easy to do. You just program the scheme and the planes smart paint system changes it for you. Will I finally stump Seto with a questyion about a Valkyries PAINT?! Tune in to find out!

    Me too, but I find you can swap 2 of them over if that happens and it goes on easier. Anyway I really am considering gluing them.

    The drakens will stay on without the clear pieces, but over time it will droop. But you can do it.

    With the drone wings folded, maybe?

    Ill tell u one cool thing: Did u guys know the little silver parts at the front of the missile pods slide forward? I assume thats so if you just want to fire a few missiles but not pop the hatches all the way, you can fire them forwards and out those ports. If thats not true, thats my head cannon anyway

    the wing definitely droops a bit without the clear piece. It doesnt bother me to much, I think it a better solution than something like the terrible inner wing bars on the old Yamato 51's.
