Remember how we geeked out and loved those Veritech fighters in the classic 80’s Macross / Robotech cartoon? Japanese model builder むむむノ53 has gone out and done something different from the usual “realistic” paint job most modelers do on their plastic model kits and went all-out to paint his kit in all its cel-shaded glory, and the end result looks absolutely stunning!
Sure brings back memories of how the cartoon looked back then. I’ve always loved the cel-shaded look, but it was never quite represented well in games or real life before, till now. A toy manufacturer should just take a cue from this and start manufacturing a series of cel-shaded Macross figs. I’m pretty sure it’ll be flying off the shelves!
