Plastic model kit, assembly required. Glue, paint and finishing supplies not included.
The highly-anticipated YF-19 model kit is finally here! Hasegawa's first 1/48-scale non-transformable Valkyrie Fighter Mode model kit offering, the large-scale YF-19 comes sharply molded with fine panel detail throughout, plus has two removable covers to reveal intricate engine detail. Other features include openable clear canopy, movable vector nozzles as well as the cannon attached to the back of the Valkyrie's robot head, and movable wings for supersonic flight. The included same-scale sitting-pose Isamu in pilot gear can be placed inside the detailed cockpit. The kit will measure 38.8cm in length with a wingspan of 30.9cm upon completion. A sheet of waterslide decals is provided. Includes exploded-view pictorial-type instructions, with some notes in English and Japanese.
The YF-19 is an experimental variable fighter featured in the Macross Plus OVA and its theatrical adaptation, Macross Plus Movie Edition. It was part of U.N. Spacy's Advanced Variable Fighter initiative under Project Super Nova. The prototype was piloted by Isamu Alva Dyson.
