Yes, you guessed it!  Yamato released a replica of Max and Miriya’s wedding plane!

The box is quite simple, and has no cover flap.

Max’s blue paint theme with white contrasts is quite eye-catching.

Now for a bit of trivia:  In Episode 1, “Booby Trap”, the ending shows the VF-1D crashing into a line of buildings, and one of them looks like this:
