1/144 HGUC Kshatriya English Color Guide

High Grade HGUC Kshatriya for Unicorn Gundam English Translation Color Guide

Update (03/09/2010): Construction Manual of the Kshatriya was translated to English here.

I initially didn't like the design of the Kshatriya from the Gundam Unicorn Movie but eventually the design did grow on me. Enough that I hit the "Google" and researched this mobile suit. The Kshatriya belongs to the Neo Zeon faction in Gundam Unicorn and is piloted by Marida Cruz.

Am definitely looking forward to watching the Gundam Unicorn movie that's scheduled to come out this year. Funny that I don't really like the design of the protagonist's Gundam Unicorn and instead like the design of the antagonist's Sinanju. I'm guessing that if they made a Master Grade version of this it would be a hit with the fans. But due to its size it would probably cost more than the Sinanju.

Color Guide was translated from the manual posted at Dalong. Check out more pics from Dalong to see the insides of this awesome kit.
