Smooth Rhodesian

Product Number: 002-340-0106

This is the first Rhodesian that we have seen from Ichi Kitahara. I figured if/when we saw one, it wouldn’t be conventional, and Kitahara-san did not disappoint. In an overly broad sense, yes… it is a saucer with a great sense of compression and proportional play. Still, ‘overly broad’ rarely conveys enough of the cool details which make a briar interesting, no? Looking at the silhouette, there is a sense of implied momentum, as well as an outline that readily lends itself to visions of a futurist spacecraft, which is much what the modern saucer is usually about. Sans any curve to the shank/bit, the impressive thickness of the former and abbreviated length of the latter, however, rather than a ‘star cruiser’, I find this execution more evocative of a high speed pursuit craft, or perhaps the future’s version of the F-22 (Stealth) Raptor. Then again, it could be just a very cool interpretation of the Rhodesian, with a ton of terrific windswept grain.
