1/100 "Valkyrie VF-19 Kai"

The "Valkyrie VF-19 Kai" that appeared in the TV animation "Macross 7" has been made into a real 3D 1/100 scale plastic model assembly kit.  With colour-coded parts and the enclosed foil stickers, the kit can be enjoyed being completed to something near that of the anime setting.  By rearranging some of the parts, it's possible to transform it into fighter mode (fighter form), GERWALK (midway), and battroid mode.  The cockpit has been reproduced using clear parts.  You can enjoy real mobility as such things as the ball joints in the joints use ploy-caps.  Such things as the launcher pod and pilot have been reproduced.  Assembly is by inserting the pieces, and the kit completely doesn't need glue.    Within the set is a detailed instruction manual.

YF-19
Explanation

The Valkyrie YF-19 is an aircraft that was developed as a candidate for the New Generation Main Variable Fighter.  Isamu served as the test pilot for the YF-19.  Its greatest features are: built-in Super-AI control avionics and a weaponized miniaturized pinpoint barrier system as standard equipment.  Also, if the YF-19 is equipped with a fold booster, it is also capable of making an independent hyperspace fold.  Because of this, if it's loaded with reaction shell armaments, the YF-19 can independently destroy an enemy combat vessel.  Therefore, even though it might seem that the YF-19 is a strong torpedo bomber at first glance, as it's close-combat abilities against enemy mobile weapons have been remarkably improved, it has a performance that far surpasses that of the VF-11 even in each of it's 3 forms of fighter, GERWALK and battroid.  However, if the pilot doesn't have the skills needed to operate it, the YF-19's true performance cannot be drawn out.

VF-19 Kai
Explanation

The Valkyrie VF-19 Kai is the state-of-the-art fighter that was determined to be the next main fighter, who's mass-production and deployment is scheduled to progress.  The Valkyrie VF-19 Kai is a remodelled general VF-19 that is equipped with a cockpit that matches the characteristics of the pilot, "Basara Nekki".  Built-into the aircraft are innovative technologies, such as a pinpoint barrier system and an active stealth system.  However, there are hardly any attack-use equipment on it, and it is loaded with unique weapons that are different from the usual offensive weapons.  It's said that the VF-19 Kai is operated as an advance experiment by the rock singer "Basara Nekki" under absolute secrecy in the Macross 7 (at present, the Macross 7 Armed Forces public relations are denying it).  Even though there's also a rumour that the aircraft is endowed with a high performance that's closer to the prototype than the mass-produced model, as the existence of this aircraft is dealt with top secretly, the VF-19 Kai is wrapped in mystery.
