Macross Chronicle, Issue 45: VF-1D and Fan Racer

Macross Chronicle Issue 45 (2010/04/15) has a really nice cover showing the VF-1D with Minmay in its left hand.

Rick Hunter flying the VF-1D with Minmay outside the cockpit and in the fighter’s hand was one of the most memorable scenes from the Robotech/Macross TV series.

At the top of the VF-1D mechanic sheet above, see that picture second from the left, where Rick Hunter is flying out of the cockpit, and gets back in the cockpit because it’s closing?  Amazing!   That scene is one of the most suspenseful, action-packed scenes in the series!!

Immediately after the mechanic sheets for the VF-1D are the mechanic sheets for Rick Hunter/Hikaru Ichijo’s Fan Racer.

Macross Chronicle calls it the “Fan Liner”.

When Rick/Hikaru’s Fan Racer accelerates in a vertical climb faster than the VF-1A Angel Birds, you know that he’s destined to become someone important.
