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

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.

Great work, Herve.

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

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:

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

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