More of a rough three-part "progression" than hashing out different versions, these aircraft were inspired by a Super Dimension Fortress Macross aircraft called the "Fan Racer." The small pusher-type was piloted by Hikaru Ichijyo early in the series. The above sketches are scaled somewhat larger, though...

Come to think of it, why haven't Japanese RC manufacturers ever created a flying scale model of the Fan Racer?

That is a good question, why don't they make a RC plane out of this?

Mmm, side notes. Isn't that called Robotech in North America?

Robotech is essentially the American version of Macross; there are similar plot points early on (especially in The Macross Saga), but it diverges over time.
