This is my best atempt so far to build a YF21/VF22 from Macross Plus. Its mainly built from dark gray pieces, cause I wouldn´t have enough blue pieces and it makes me feel that the gray gives it a more stealthy look than the blue.
The trasnformation process needs to be improved a lot yet, and the pictures here in the battroid mode are from the old version (also found withim the brickshelf link). I think, for now the best feature is how its modeled on the fighter mode, cause its very likely the original.
"Unlike the more traditionally designed YF-19, the YF-21 is literally a showcase of leading-edge combat technology. Many of fighter's systems are advanced prototypes, which gives the YF-21 a definite edge in terms of technology. The fighter also includes a significant amount of Zentraedi overtechnology in its flight systems, including a revised version of the inertia vector control system used in the Quimeliquola Quaedlunn-Rau (Female Combat Armor) battlesuit. The alien technology gives the YF-21 a strong resemblance to Zentraedi battlesuits in soldier mode. The AVF is also equipped with many cutting-edge human technology systems, including a revolutionary active stealth system that can absorb radar and other sensor waves, rendering the fighter invisible to most electromagnetic sensor systems.
However the most advanced systems in the YF-21 AVF are the Brainwave Control System (BCS) and Brain Direct Imaging (BDI) system. The BCS allows the pilot to control all functions of the aircraft literally with his thoughts, while the BDI feeds sensor data directly into the pilot's mind, providing far more information than traditional HMD (head-mounted display) or HUD (heads-up display) systems are capable of. When used together, these two systems allow the pilot to sense and react to situations with the speed of thought while flying the YF-21. The new systems require some time to get accustomed to, however, and only certain disciplined pilots are able to use them to their full potential. In addition, these systems have occasionally exhibited feedback and control problems with some pilots, including chief test pilot Guld Boa Bowman."
