Excalibur -Side By Side- by CycloneX3 Excalibur -Side By Side- by CycloneX3
This was a project that I gave myself during my photoshop schooling time. It was a little after I first started learning photoshop. I decided to take out the words, so just the fightercraft was there. All in all, it took about a week of very careful manipulation. Lotsa clone tool here folks. 8)

This is a side-by-side so you can compare. The bottom is the original scan I started with. The top is the finished product. Please view it through the Download tab so you can see the full detail.

By the way. The Jet is a VF Excalibur Type from the Anime series Macross Plus. In this case, the scan is from the Video Game instruction booklet for Macross Digital Mission VF-X. A Japan only, video game for Playstation 1.

All hail Macross and it's infinite AWESOME!

That's a very impressive fix on a very garbled image.

Great PhotoShop work here! It looks way better than the original.

The jet reminds me a little of a design of mine. What do you think?

Thank you very much! :dance: Interesting! Did you know that the germans created some bastardized test bombers back in the day? Very cool. Called the Junkers Ju 287. Forward-swept wings are better at lower speeds though. As far as I know, the japanese did some studies on forward-swept wings, but I haven't heard of any aircraft made by them. I am not the best researcher though.

I didn't know about the Junkers Ju 287... very cool!

There was a McDonnal Douglas design a while back for something similar to the UCAV from the movie Stealth. (Never saw it, though) It was a variable geometry design that could go from forward swept, right angle, rear swept, or extreme forward swept where the wings are flush with the leading edge of the airframe.

Weeeeeeeee! :D

Thanks very much! Although I must point out, that I only took the picture, removed all the text and letters, and tried to make it look as good as I could. I did re-create quite a bit where I assumed what it looked like under all the japanese. I never really had a playstation1 but I asked If I could borrow the instruction book for that game from my friend, just so I could scan the picture and try to clean it up. I was thinking..."That's such a cool picture! Why on earth did they stick it behind all that text???"

I don't know if starscream has ever been this model of jet, but he's been so many different kinds over the years I've lost track! I have a model of him as a F-15 eagle sitting on top of my computer case right now!

Yup, I thought, "Why did thy cover up such a cool picture with mountains of text!". It was pretty tough to re-"envision" how some of it looked underneath!

I was working on it as a pet project in a class in my off time for a week. So... maybe an hour a day? I wasn't really keeping track. :shrug: I assume over 7 hours???

It was fun though. Bit by bit, piece by piece. I eventually felt satisfied and stopped.

Thanks for asking!
