Hello from "Tasuke" (John) was created by Tasuke








- 2008 YAMATO 1/60v.II VF-1J Hikaru Ichijo/Rick Hunter T.V. Type -

- 1985 BANDAI 1/72 H.C.M. VF-1J Hikaru Ichijo/Rick Hunter T.V. Type -


the best of the past (arguably)
beside the best of today (arguably as well)

the old IMAI/BANDAI 1/72 parts-forming VF-1S model kit was directly responsible for getting me into VF-1s and MACROSS/ROBOTECH in the first place, by way of the CEJI/REVELL ROBOTECH DEFENDERS "VEXAR" U.S. repackage of the VF-1S.

in the late eighties, a cousin of mine, that i got to see on a regular basis,
gave me the "VEXAR" that he had built up and painted (VERY badly)
and despite the fact that i was a rather immature and destructive child
at the time, that VF-1S model had managed to stick in my head despite the very
short time it lasted in my hands.

it wasn't until 1993/94ish that i got another chance with the VF-1, though,
in the form of an ARII 1/100 GERWALK model of the VF-1J Ichijo/Hunter T.V.
from there, there was no turning back for me, i was a MACROSS/ROBOTECH fan.

so, in summation, i consider the VF-1S/VEXAR of my foggy childhood memories
my very first VF-1, however short a lifespan it had in my hands,
and that ARII GERWALK model my first "proper" VF-1, and the one that
finally and ultimately struck MACROSS/ROBOTECH fandom within me.

today, i consider the HCM the perfect amalgamation of my first two experiences with the VF-1, condensed
into one cohesive, powerfully nostalgic toy-like model...
