Hmm, no clue, all the good Macross 7/Plus kits, ie the YF/VF-19, etc, are way
too expensive for me to ever consider. The 1/100 regular kits, the VF-11 and
VF-17 were okay, pretty basic. VF-11 doesnt even try to give you
transformation, the kit gives you a seperate fighter and battloid. OTOH, if
could manage to find the full armor conversion kit for it, then that would
Also, mind you, due to the differences in scale (Macross mecha are generally
smaller), a 1/100 scale Macross model is generally the same size as a 1/144
Gundam model (and still a little bit smaller). Therefore avoid the 1/144
models as they're pretty cheap and small. The 1/72s are the best, too bad they
never made an affordable Strike Valk in that scale...
