    Operation Meteor: Part 6

    So, uh, this one is clearly long overdue. Like last year with our Quanta armor, I didn’t have time during the final few days of building and the subsequent rush of the actual convention to churn out the final build log chronicling our last leg of the journey that led to the full Wing suit.

I know some peripheral information about its titular mobile suit just from picking up bits and pieces here in other Gundam shows and in the community, but I suppose I’ll never…
