Model Graphix Macross Modeling Catalog ~ Hasegawa Tsubasa
In honor of the 35th anniversary this year of the TV broadcast of the first series "Super Dimension Fortress Macross", Model Graphix will publish a full catalog of Macross plastic models made by Hasegawa for this memorial year. Hasegawa released a 1/72 VF-1 fighter form kit in 2000 with fighters in fixed mode that had a realistic aircraft look which caused a sensation in the model world for for 17 years since then. This book showcases all the Hasegawa Macross models that have grown to a series that exceed 60 kits. This modeling catalog contains super detailed photos and commentaries about the kits which will be helpful in building the models. 
From "Super Dimension Fortress Macross" to the latest work "Macross Δ" ... This is an essential book for the Macross Modeling Fan!!!

On the fence about buying this one - mostly because I already have the majority of the line art in other books.  :p

For those that need more convincing, check out Amazon JP for some picts of the book's interior: https://www.amazon.co.jp/マクロス-ヴァリアブルファイター-デザイナーズノート-GA-Graphic/dp/4797393696


Most of the other sites I checked out had the same, or similar content.  However, this one is intriguing: http://www.amiami.jp/top/detail/detail?gcode=MED-BOOK-010579

If I'm not mistaken, that looks like line art for the VF-11 drone that appeared in Macross Plus! (lower right)

Macross Variable Fighter Designers Note from SB Creative










Almost every VF from every era of Macross is represented in lineart form. 

Since the book also contains the most recent Vfs from M0, MF, and MD...it is well worth adding to your book collection to have them all presented in one book.

Had a mini scare today!


Corner of the package was wet and  tearing! :o


Feverishly opened it up to find the corner safe and dry! 

Must have just happened so no chance of any damage to occur...i got it of amazon.jp, so i thk it should be covered anyway if there is such damage...


Just have some time for quick snaps!


Coming in at 271 pages of illustrations, am not sure how to go through it without splitting the binding...........

What is that extra missiled, turreted Battlepod?

The Glaug variant there is marked up only as "Super Glaug" in the few mentions I've seen.

The Regult with the big missile rack is the ZBP-104 Regult Type-104 (read "One Zero Four") missile spec, a New UN Forces analogue to the Esbeliben Regult missile light and heavy missile variants in the original Super Dimension Fortress Macross series and DYRL? movie.  The regular (non-missile) version shows up at the start of the first episode of Macross Delta.

The one with the arms and Quimeliquola Queadluun-Rau-inspired backpack is the ZBP-106 Regult Type-105 (read "One Zero Six").

My copy rolled in today, a day earlier than FedEx promised, and after a quick skim I'm pretty darn pleased.  Mr March will be over the moon about having some proper line art to work with for the YF-29 and Sv-262, I'm sure.
