Mecha Monday: Macross Mecha Manual

Monday's weekly post for the Macross Mecha Manual Facebook page has generated great interest and numerous comments. Many fans have been asking questions that ponder how the VF-1 Valkyrie compares to real world fighter craft. Fans have also expressed concerns the VF-1 Valkyrie is too small or is rather odd when depicted at its official size.To place the VF-1 Valkyrie in proper context, I've made a quick chart using images from the internet. It's a bit rough and low resolution, but it works. Rather than choosing fighters far larger or far smaller than the VF-1, I've picked several real fighter craft that are roughly the same size. This should help fans visualize the VF-1 Valkyrie in proper context. It should also show fans that despite its modest length, the VF-1's volume and construction are rather generous for a craft of its size.Macross Mecha Manual
