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.
