If you've ever wanted to have your own SA-77 Silpheed fighter after seeing the prototype craft on its Sega CD game cover -- or on its much more awesome Mega CD box -- Japanese kit maker PLUM (Pretty Lovely Unique Mechanism) will soon sell the detailed model you waited so many years for.
This 1/100th scale ship looks like the first release in PLUM's new SFG (Shooting Fighter Game) series. The company intends to release it in Japan this May at a suggested price of ¥5,460 (around $60); hopefully the SA-77 will also appear on import hobby shops! You can see several shots of the elegant Silpheed ship after the break.
