Macross Build – VF-0D Pheonix


My latest completed build is the VF-0D Phoenix, piloted by Shin Kudo, with backseat Edgar LaSalle. 1/72 scale plastic kit from Hasegawa, from the Japanese animation “Macross Zero”.


Pretty much a straight out of the box build, nothing fancy done. Only change I did was the “UN SPACY” markings on the leg should be black, but Mr. Softer worked a little too well, and I ended up accidentally trashing it. No black in my reserve supply of extra decals, but had white, and thankfully they worked out OK.


One thing I like about the Macross Zero kits, is that at 1/72 scale they’re almost as big as a 1/48 scale contemporary fighter jet kit. More bang for your buck! (or yen, as the case may be)



I don’t know why people complain about doing pilot figures. I think they’re fun!


Kit completed on July 8th, 2016. Click on an image to get a bigger view, and to see more.
