Awesome new mook to add to the Variable Fighter Master File collection this being the the second in the series VF-19 Excalibur. Usually call this VF-19 or YF-19 but Excalibur is a cool name for the fighter which i never really remember. Just like the last in the series the VF-1 Valkyrie this has lots of cool almost photo realistic pics and what must be vast amounts of great information in Japanese with some very nice illustration explain how the VF-19 works.
Was quite pricey for me to get but think it really wanted to get this and all other that will be released, next is the VF-1 again but with Super Part which was a surprise was expecting the VF-25.
Double page spread for the content, not sure if it the YF-19 but damn it looks great!
First few pages are "photos" of the Excalibur. Cool Gerwalk and low viz on the right,
Guess this is the generic design page using the Macross Plus YF-19 patterns.
Top left corner is the "VF-19A SVF-569 Lightnings" which Hasegawa released as very nice looking 1/48 kit.
Awesome space shot, wicked looking Uraga carrier.
VF-11 and YF-19 together ala Macross Plus style.
Monitor Turret which i call the head, got Basara's Fire Valkyrie at the bottom Mohawk style.
Battriod and Gerwalk mode of the VF-19 from Plus and 7.
Pilot suits for Plus and the video game Macross Digital Mission VF-X2 "Get Free!"
Only one pic of the cool looking Excalibur with the triangular radar on top some sort of Airborne Early Warning valk.
Uraga Class Escort Battle Carrier, 2 great shot, one with a VF-19 just taken off and the other in Earth orbit surrounded by Northampton Class Stealth Frigates.
Just like the VF-1 Book which had F-14 before and VF-4 after, the VF-19 file has the VF-11 before and the VF-17 after. Be great to get entire books on the VF-4, 11 and 17.
Five double pages of these designs, lots of modeling opportunities. At the bottom left there is the "Roy Focker Special"
Only page with VF-19s from Macross 7 was expecting an entire section on Emerald Force and Sound Force, wanted a double spread pic of Basara's VF-19 Karaoke Ninja or Fire Valkyrie.
Credit page for the CG artists has some nice pics including a very nice white VF-17.
Great mook, would like to model some of these but there is so much choice!
Next up VF-1 Space Wing
