If you're in the mood for some cuteness and crafts, Avex Pictures has you covered with a series of Youtube videos featuring voice actress Yūka Morishima attempting to build a plastic model of the JAS-39D Gripen, the real life aircraft that serves as the basis for her character in the Girly Air Force TV anime.
Morishima's model-building career is just getting started, so be sure to check back with the official Avex Pictures Youtube channel each week for more updates on her progress.
Based on the series of light novels written by Kōji Natsumi and illustrated by Asagi Tousaka, the Girly Air Force TV anime is directed by Katsumi Ono and features animation production by Satelight. The series is currently broadcasting on Japanese TV and streaming on Crunchyroll. Crunchyroll describes the story of Girly Air Force as follows:
Mysterious flying creatures called Zai suddenly appear and overwhelm all of mankind's aerial combat forces. To fight them, mankind modifies existing aircraft frames to create mechanized soldiers called "Daughters," which are operated by automated piloting mechanisms called "Anima" that have the appearance of human girls. The story begins when Narutani Kei, a boy who yearns to take to the skies, encounters a shining red aircraft and its pilot, an Anima named Gripen who has been named mankind's trump card.
