Siren Fighter from "Crusher Joe" (1983)
About the Design
Numerous fighter designs emerged from Japan’s “Crusher Joe” TV animated TV series, including this needle-nosed beauty. The angle of the wings and tail along with the shape of its engines definitely suggest an Asian artistic sensibility.
About the Kit
Takara of Japan produced a whole slew of “Crusher Joe” models in the mid-1980s, many of which are still available on the collector’s market. The Siren was produced in both 1/100 scale by Takara, and in 1/144 scale by Nitto.
The model was built from an original issue.
