Hello all!

So, as promised, I hereby start my next Macross project. It will be both Macross Plus mechas, the YF-19 (this time for real) and the YF-21. I'm not sure how the final image will look like, but I wanted to do something in the desert, with some New Edwards buildings in the far plane.

Right into action, here is some progress on the 21. Hope this time doesn't take me as long as the last one

    Hello all!

    As always..., its been a long time since my last post. There's a lot going on in my life and I just got some time to move forward with this.

    Here's a small update. I'm basically done with the general shape (except for arms and legs) of the yf-21. I'll start adding details by parts.

    Yay, Macross! And two of my favourite designs as well, w00t!

    Man the YF-21 Omega One and the VF-22 Sturmvogel II are my favorite Macross VF mecha, the bird is a YF-23 on Steroids. Your design on this mecha looks good so far. Keep up the good work looking forward to more updates!!!

    God I wished I'd bought the actual Yamato models at the last Con I went to (bought the VF-25 Super instead), simply so I could take photos for you.

    Are you working off some of the artwork from the Shoji Kawamori Macross Mecha Works book? It's got near 360 views for all modes, and mid-point transformation breakdowns.

    found this good ortho for the yf-19.. had it for awhile.. forgot I had it untill it came up in my wallpaper pool :)

    Hi all! Thanks for the comments

    I ordered the 1/60 scale a few weeks ago, should receive it in short. I already have the 1/60 yf-19. I'm working mainly on sketches that I found on the web and actual pictures of the Yamato figure. Because of actually having to transform, the toy isn't 100% accurate, so the concepts help to add detail

    Thanks! didn't have that one. I do have a few fighter orthos, but that one is good!

    To everyone who's asking, yes, they will transform, both of them. I don't have anything to show yet, but I'm working on it

    I love both designs but the VF 19 Alpha speaks to me because it required some pretty creative working to transform properly. The YF-19 seems to use a bit more...cartoon flexibility. (I can't exactly tell)

    Is it me or is the YF-21 based on the F-22 Raptor?
  • SchimpfySchimpfy171 Posts: 0Member
    I'd lean more toward the YF-23, but definitely some F-22 elements. :)
  • SaquistSaquist1 Posts: 0Member
    Wow, I never knew about this fighter...it is the YF-21. Fantastic. I always liked that the original Veritech was a coniguration of the Tomcat, it's interesting to see that tradition was maintained.
