I haven't seen any YF-19 landing gear pictures except for this one, but I remember someone once said it was an unofficial drawing. I'm not even sure where this picture comes from. It could very well be fan-made for all I know. But that's all I got.

That's pretty close, but the front gear is just a tad bit in front of where it shows on that fan drawing. You can catch its position in Ep 2 during the testing montage when Isamu is taxiing in front of the YF-21's hangar.

Mr March - thx will use that for front , the back landing gear is still a bit of mistery except for front views I have seen

frothymug - Only seen movie , will see if I can find ep2

Maybe I should ask our modelkit guys if they can take a photo of landing gear of a Hasegawa YF 19 model kit ?

well guys common, use a bit of imagination. Pick up any landing gear design like from american YF-22 or russian SU-47. I am pretty sure in this "reference" the artist did the same thing.

Using the VF-19 Custom as a template isn't a bad idea, but the front landing gear is slightly different on the prototype. I've scanned a picture from the TIAS book and I'll attach it here.

Well, I checked, Rodavan, and there IS some detail on the landing gear for the YF-19/VF-19A in it. I didn't get a chance to scan it, but I will tomorrow afternoon.

Great work Talos! The pictures look excellent. Definitely looks like the artists for thew VF-19 book properly researched the gear. They look very close to the screen shot I posted.

Definitely! That's the sort of thing that stood out for me in the Master File. Overall, it's well done. There's some small quibbles of course, but nothing's perfect. As an example of coolness, they named and described all the weapons on the cover of This is Animation Special: Macross Plus...

Glad you like it. Can't wait to see what you do with the landing gear on your model. ^_^

Sheesh, why wasn't that book around when I made my old flight sim model?

Funny though, I don't think those main gear even resemble the anime. They look decently designed, but I don't think the gear originally had that F-18 style bend.

I had a newer set worked out for an updated flight sim version in Gmax once, but that was for MS Combat Sim 3, which uses Gmax only, and I never made a 3DS Max version.

maxi - Sorry .. I don't give out unclomplete models , you can ask Chronocidal , he gave me a very good model to look @ a few years ago , if he agrees I will give you a copy of his YF-19 which is on the best I have seen.

Tried the combination that Talos had in drawings he supplied , it still needs some detail , but we will get there ...I hope

It's looking really good, Rodovan. ^_^ Oh, how I wish I could 3d model like that!

Oh please feel free to pass that model around, I've found it all over the net in various forms over the years. :lol:

Just be warned, that one is 100% Hasegawa based. It's a nice aircraft model, but you will have serious trouble if you try to transform it. It's also fairly low poly for this day and age. I've got an in progress update to it, but it's been on my virtual shelf for a couple years now with no progress. It's meant to be for FSX, but I kind of fell away from my modeling hobby near the end of college. I really should pick it back up again.

That leg looks incredible by the way. :D

FYI, that pic comes from either the box of the Bandai 1/100 VF-19Kai or Bandai 1/100 VF-19S plamodel kits from 1995 (I forget which). It is printed on the inside of the box. At the time it lead a great many people into thinking that Bandai was going to release a YF-19 model kit.

Some alternative nose cone panel lines from the the scan Talos made .... <_< .. :p

I always wanted to learn how to do panel lines on a 3d model. Know of any good tutorials?

Chthonic - depends on software and type modeling nurbs vs poly

Some progress - going slow , but going forward ....

Looking good, Rodavan. Keep up the great work. I like how the Master File panel lines on the nose came out. If there's anything else you need scanned out of there, let me know.
