HG RX-78-2 Gundam (Revive) Construction Manual & Color Guide

HG RX-78-2 Gundam (Revive) Construction Manual & Color Guide

From the Revive series comes the RX-78-2 Gundam of Amuro Ray as a 1/144 High Grade model kit. Such an iconic mecha. I love how Bandai honors it by always making it the flagship model kit release of any new model kit line. But in the case of the Reborns 1/100 line it wasn't so, that honor went to the Nightingale.

HG Dom R35 Construction Manual & Color Guide

HG Dom R35 Construction Manual & Color Guide

From Gundam Build Fighters comes the Dom R35 of Mr. Ral (Ral-san in Japanese) released as a 1/144 High Grade model kit by Bandai. Always loved the Dom design, even the original one from the first series. What appeals to me is the unique head and bulky frame. Of course my most favorite Zeon inspired suit is the Rick Dias.

1/12 Scout Trooper & Speeder Bike Construction Manual & Color Guide

1/12 Scout Trooper & Speeder Bike Construction Manual & Color Guide

Another great release from Bandai for their StarWars line is the 1/12 Scout Trooper and Speeder Bike. For sure, getting Bandai to implement their mad skills in bringing model kits to life for the StarWars product line has got to be one of the best ideas of the century. Ok, Ok, that's hyperbole but it just has to be said, Bandai's scale model kit designers are artisans. Every time they release something in the StarWars series it makes my jaw drop.
