The YF-19 is from a four-episode anime series set after the events of the original Macross series and is in the official timeline as the first sequel. It is set approximately three decades after the end of the hostilities between humans and the Zentradi.

According to the design’s entry on Wikipedia, “In the year 2040, a contest was held for the design of the Advanced Variable Fighter. Two companies, Shinsei Industries and General Galaxy, joined the competitions. Shinsei's entry was the YF-19 Alpha One (the different code indicating a prototype). The YF-19 won the Project Super Nova design contest.”

The kit’s injection molded plastic parts are molded light beige styrene, and the detailing is beautiful. Clear parts are also included. A full sheet of waterslide decals is included, and features all of the pinstriping and markings needed to complete the model. There are 118 numbered decals on the sheet.

Hasegawa has also released other variants of the YF-19, including the 1:72 XF-X2 VF-19A “VF-X Ravens” in light blue (2006) and the 1:48 YF-19 (kit no. HSGMC01 - 2009) and 1:48 VF-19A “SVF-569 Silver Lightnings” (kit no. HSG65790 - 2010).

The completed kit measures about 10 inches long and has a wingspan of just over 10 inches.
