The VF-11B Thunderbolt is from a four-episode anime series set after the events of the original Macross series and is in the official timeline as the first sequel. It is set approximately three decades after the end of the hostilities between humans and the Zentradi.

According to the design’s entry on Wikipedia, “The VF-11 was designed and created as the replacement unit for the VF-4 Lightning III variable fighter.” The “B” model is the standard aircraft deployed with UN Spacy units, with increased thrust, a lengthened barrel on the anti-aircraft gun, and one window on the main sensor as compared to the “A” variant.

The kit’s injection molded plastic parts are molded light gray styrene, and the detailing is superb, with little or no flash visible. Clear parts are also included. A full sheet of waterslide decals is included, and features all of the pinstriping and markings needed to complete the model. One neat feature of the kit is that movable and positionable parts are included, such as swinging wings and postionable air brakes.

The completed kit looks to be about 10 inches long with a wingspan of 9 inches. This is a rough guesstimate obtained by measuring the parts on their runners, and not by fitting them together.
