1/72 Y-Wing Star Fighter Construction Manual & Color Guide

1/72 Y-Wing Star Fighter Construction Manual & Color Guide

Released by Bandai is the iconic Y-Wing from the Star Wars franchise. I was looking forward to this after I first heard it announced. Suffice to say that I was not disappointed, Bandai did a hell of a job with this. But then again, that it to be expected coming from Bandai, with it's excellent track record of raising the bar every couple of years with new releases.

Google Translate App Improvements

Unknown to most people is that you can actually translate your manual by means of the Google Translate App (for IOS and Android) by taking a picture of it with the App then the translation will come out.

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.
