Yep, Still Not Gunpla Level. Build Complete: Figure-rise Standard Ultraman Suit Zoffy/Ver. Z

As I mentioned in yesterday's work-in-progress post, I was targeting to finish this kit by the weekend, which I fortunately did.

So, I really, really appreciate the … Continue reading Overtaking the Backlog! Work-in-Progress #0: Figure-rise Standard Ultraman Suit Zoffy/Ver.Z
