1/72 RZ-030 Gun Sniper HMM English Manual & Color Guide

Kotobukiya 1/72 RZ-030 Gun Sniper from Zoids Color Guide

Was actually quite surprised when I found out that Zoids comes in model kit form. Growing up I already saw Zoid toys, was quite curious as to what they were when I first saw them because they looked like mechanized beasts turned into war machines.

The first ever Zoid cartoon I ever watched was Zoids New Century, I think I saw it in Cartoon Network, not sure? Though I wasn't able to finish it during its initial run, I was lucky enough to have obtained a copy so as to watch the series in its entirety.

Color guide & Manual for the 1/72 Gun Sniper HMM from Zoids by Kotobukiya was translated to English from the Japanese Manual posted at Dalong's Model Kit Review site.

Compared to Bandai model kits, I have to say that the color's needed to mix correctly the color of the Gun Sniper is quite complex. Then again, I'm only basing it on the Gun Sniper, the other zoid model kits in the Kotobukiya line might be different.

Kotobukiya 1/72 RZ-030 Gun Sniper from Zoids Color Translated Guide


Famous pilots of the Gun Sniper are Leena Toros, Naomi Fluegel and Vega Obscura of the Backdraft organization. The Gun Sniper gets its name from the sniper rifle that is housed in its tail and in the hands of a sharp shooter, can be very effective.

Kotobukiya 1/72 RZ-030 Gun Sniper from Zoids Color Translated Guide


The retail price of the Kotobukiya Gun Sniper is ¥3675, but you can get it cheaper at some online sellers who specialize in Japanese toys and model kits. Sold by 3rd party sellers at Amazon
