Hasegawa 1/72 VF-1A Minmay Special

I'm a great fan of Minmay, but I'll pass this time. It's a lazy design, nothing to do against the previous Minmay Guards. Hasegawa should issue the "Paris Act" Minmay Guard, with complete decal sheet (actual option decal sheet doesn't comes with all decals to make it). Battroid & Fighter version would be great. But this, it's just like an aircraft with a big tatoo. :angry:

The orange makes me think of Hikaru's fanracer & flight suit or the VF-1D in SDF:M, or the VT-1 in DYRL - so there's a sort of orange element in early Minmay imagery as far as my mind's eye is concerned.

In case anyone was interested in where this new image of Minmei is coming from:

Macross the First, done by Haruhiko Mikimoto. It's a retelling of the original Macross saga, with a few minor changes.

I'm not a fan. Nice decals, don't get me wrong. But the scheme is terrible, and why a VF-1A? So not only another VF-1, but why couldn't they have done a VF-1D or Super o? Better yet, scale down the decal and put it on the disk of a VE-1...

By the way, what kind of figure is on the tail?.

Since is says "Miss Macross 2009" on top of the starboard intake and the thing on the tail looks like a crown, I am going to assume it is the Miss Macross Crown. Also, if you look really closely, the text around the crown on the tail says Miss Macross AD 2009.
