1/72 VF-27 Lucifer Translated English Manual & Color Guide

1/72 VF-27 Lucifer Translated Construction Manual

Update (12/21/2009): Japanese to English Translation complete... woohoo!

Just saw the construction manual of the 1/72 VF-27 Lucifer posted at Dalong.net. Couldn't resist translating it to English for the sake of honing my Japanese skills. Definitely one of the best designs made by Shoji Kawamori for the Macross Frontier series. I just feel that its a nightmare to paint if you don't have an air brush, given the color mix needed in its color guide.

Kindly read my little disclaimer before using this translated guide. It might not be complete right now, but kindly check back once in a while as I will post the translated pages once I'm done. I also posted before on what the symbols in a Bandai model kit's manual means.

The Lucifer is available for sale now at your favorite online seller. So far the cheapest place I found that sells it was at HWJapan, but don't hold me on that as prices often change.
