A tribute to an old Anime. Macross/Robotech, although being an awesome anime, this was before my time. I never had a chance to see these awesome mecha series in my childhood. Having said that, it's never too late to start! And this is my way of starting. I did my research on these awesome-looking mecha by watching the show. This particular variable fighter was hard to spot in the show and I later found out that it was from the second part, "Super Dimensional Fortress Macross II: Lovers Again". 6 episodes of awesome stuff! Totally worth watching if you haven't!
Anyway. This project was by far the longest I've worked with and also my first Mecha in 3D.
