Fun fact:Anime legend Shoji

Fun fact:

Anime legend Shoji Kawamori is credited with designing Thunderbird Shadow in the closing credits!

That being said- umm, how can I put this delicately?- it looks too much like an anime vessel and not enough like a 'genuine' Thunderbird, IMO. Don't get me wrong I like the ship! Just... it doesn't look like a Thunderbird to me.

Rejected Macross design?

Between the general shape and the cockpit gimmick (which reminds me a little of Frontier's transforming exo-suit cockpit), I wonder if this started as a design for Macross Delta but got shifted over to Thunderbirds when he couldn't get the transformation to work out.
