Macross DY-30 Jet mashup


Plastic models help me study a plane that I hope to build someday. While investigating canard planes I tripped across the Macross DY-30 Chronos. Itís a transformer from PlayStation videogame only available in Japanese.

The plane is very close to modern jets. While evaluating a number of them I discovered the Russian SU-35/37 Super Flanker Jet. So I found the plastic model in China and bought it with no problems. I had to make lots of parts and trim the canards to match photos.

Hereís some photos of my version. The model will serve as a guide some day for a jet.

Pretty much ANY of the Macross variable fighters can be modded/adjusted to be VEEY airworthy, as well as 'badass-as-all-get-OUT'!

Be nice to see another one transition to RC

The flight sim is awesome! Yes, I would love to see this DY-30 in the air for real some day. I'm currently building a P-51B 57" WS, so it'll be a few years.
Thanks for the encouragement!

Do you have a link to a Macross to RC? I'm curious about several things -- size, cost, powerplant (EDF?), etc.

That reminds me...

That guy who has begun creating 'new' design Flite Test foam board jets & warbirds----John Overstreet.

We need to hit him up to crank out a foam board-based VF-1 like these...he'd do it & do it well!
