Same here! I never saw the series, BUT I LOVED that design! I bought it reboxed as a Battletech "kit" (along with other great Macross and Crusher Joe kits). - MT

Oh, that's beautiful!

I so wish those kits would be reissued...

I nabbed a R2 copy of the Crusher Joe box set for a steal last summer. The OOP AnimEgo discs go for an INSANE amount considering it's just 3 vids.

I remember the east coast sci-fi cons in the 80's would have an entire rooms selling anime kits, and there were always plenty of Crusher Joe models at every price. Wish I would have bought more than just the 1/60 hovercars....

Looks great.

Do you think your decals still work? I started making vector art of them and can dig them out if you want to print them for yourself.

Thanks !

for the decals, I hope so... the sheet seems ok,. But, just in case, it would be great to have a spare option.

your offer is much appreciated, thanks ! I would let you know.

Hello !


Decals are in place, most of them. After many fears and mmmh... "bad words", here is the result :

I have "lost" one of the red "J" supposed to be on the 2 vertical fins, but it is not a big issue I think.


Nearly finished, see you for the final pictures.

The fighters are great, recommended.

I have the first release versions, which are nice. The metal finish just looks gaudy to me.

Great work, Herve.

Those fighters bear a resemblance to the VF-4, minus the shoulders and legs.

Those fighters were also in Macross -as a hidden easter-egg if I recall correctly!

It's because Kawamori is the mech designer on Crusher Joe.

Herve, you did such an awesome job on the Minerva. Way to go man ^_^

I just stumbled upon this fantastic build of Crusher Joe's Cordoba:

Making of:

Note that this is not the Takara plastic kit, but a fairly large 1/2400 resin kit.

Just got word from HLJ that Hasegawa will produce 1/72 kits of the Fighter-1 in their Creator Works line!

Oooo... That's from out of the blue, and very welcome.  Here's hoping that the Siren and Harpy will get the same treatment.

What?!  That can't be the Hasegawa one could it?  It looks horrible.  Very disappointed.  They look like "bandai" landing gears - argh.
