>>13751278 The only reason VFs even exist in Macross is because they are made with a space metal that's stronger and lighter than anything we currently have and energy conversion armor that strengthens the frame for battle and transformation. So without those and other alien technology it'll probably never happen. We'd sooner have destroids than VFs.
>>13751278 VF's are fantasy machines. Something that can transform from a fighter jet to a mech while still being able to be combat capable and maintainable is pretty much impossible. A large scale action model should be possible though.
>>13751278 The main problem would the amount of moving parts which would be hell to maintain and the fact that it will most probably tumble endlessly when it transforms in mid-air(that is, if it even transforms properly without jamming and quick enough to not crash before transforming successfully).
If we're not transforming the plane, a VF-0 is completely possible considering that its pretty much a F-14 with thrust-vectoring.
>>13751278 >how far away from real life VF's are we? 5ever far away.
>Would it even be possible to make a large-scale, metal action figure? Won't be wholly accurate, but since Kawamori has been designing scale figures and models of them since the VF-1, it's really more of "why does one needs a large-scale metal action figure?".
