WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 VF-0C Phoenix Pt. 6

WIP : Hasegawa 1/72 VF-0C Phoenix Pt.1

For Plamo’s annual WOOB competition, the theme this year is Do You Remember Macross. I’ve been honored to be asked to be a judge apparently because I’m a Macross fanboy haha! I actually have two other ongoing WIPs that can be considered for WOOB, but what the heck, I decided to add another one. 🙂 …...
